Yeah, either way, it just sucks. Why even include this stuff, it adds nothing.

XCOM 2 runs well enough by my standards. It's not perfect, but it's way better than the original XCOM on Vita. Looks good in handheld mode, too.

As long as your standard isn't perfection, and are OK with imperfect-but-totally-playable performance, it's fine.

Fire Emblem fans?

What about OG Fire Emblem fans? Like, GBA era, the original Fire Emblem released in the west?

The Lynn figure just released, and I got mine in the mail from Japan. It looks great. Marth and Ike statues should be releasing soon, too (finally, some male characters getting some love).

@JaxonH Those are damn nice statues.

If I had the money, I'd probably grab that Lynn one alongside the Pyra/Mythra statues that came out a while back.

Wow. Shin Megami Tensei V steelbook edition is $39.99 on Amazon!

Double wow, it’s only $36.99 at GameStop!

@Ralizah
There’s also the Xenoblade 2 KOS-MOS statue (I unlocked KOS-MOS near the end of the game but used her all the way to the end after I got her), and Melia is releasing soon, too.

There’s Chinese knockoffs that actually look… basically identical to the real thing. Can grab both Pyra and Mythra combined for like $77 on Amazon. Box may come damaged but it’s the figures that matter.

Probably a question I never thought I would ask, but how can one change the NSO Mario Kart 64 racetrack map? I have pressed all buttons to no avail 😅

Danganronpa Decadence seems to be sold out everywhere. I guess demand was higher than expected?

Taller than I expected. Really need to rethink my shelving situation.

@Ralizah
Woah, you weren't kidding. It's utterly wiped out. Crazy, since the collector edition wasn't even sold out leading up to release. Now not even the game itself is available. Word of mouth, maybe?

@Ryu_Niiyama
Shelving is a constant struggle. I had to make a pass and box up all figures that weren't amiibo or 1/7 scale statues... I just had too many of them, wasn't any room left.

@JaxonH I was surprised how long that CE stayed freely available. But yeah, stock has evaporated for everything related to that game, lol.

Well, good. The more success stories we have, the more companies will prioritize Switch going forward. Maybe Spike Chunsoft will start realizing what a goldmine the Switch is and port over the Zero Escape trilogy as well!

More assassins creed apparently coming to switch. I have both collections already, and I'd easily grab this one too( pending its true).

Good News for (EU) Customers -
Nintendo has to Refund Preorder Games, since they fall under the EU Law that allows 14 Day Refunds for online Purchases.

The E-Shop in Germany and Norway have updated this Option*, every other EU Country will follow.
(*since it was put in Charge as a Cooperation between them)

The german Verdict can be found here:

EDIT:
Short:
The Verdict says, that the Hook at the End of the Purchase is illegal and Nintendo has to omit to use it against Customers to hinder them to refund Games.

I don't agree with that at all. It's unfair to allow consumers 14 days to refund. That is ripe for abuse. Buy a game, play it for 2 weeks, then refund it. This is a clear case of pro-consumerism going too far.

Steam does it best. You get 2 hrs. That's plenty of time to see how the game looks and runs, without being so much time the consumer can abuse it.

@NintendoByNature
Oh ya? Right on! That means gyro aiming, and a hybrid handheld version on top of it! I can't stand the current versions. Console doesn't have Gyro, and the Steam version forces Xbox and keyboard button prompts, which don't mix well with a PS5 controller used for gyro. It makes it crazy confusing trying to figure out which buttons to press, especially with Switch layout ingrained in my memory.

@JaxonH In cases where that happens, usually there's a catch. Like the difference between Steam and GOG's refund policies. I tested both out out of curiosity by buying The Witcher 3 and then refunding it on each platform after playing for a bit (I wanted to see how well the cloud save transfer worked between Switch on both platforms). GOG's policy, which says you can request a refund 30 days after purchase, sounds wildly ripe for abuse.

Steam is almost automated: if you fall within the refund window, it's processed really quickly. But GOG... they want answers about why you want a game refunded. I had to actually respond with written responses when I was refunding Witcher, and didn't feel 100% that they were going to honor my request because of how long the process took.

They did, but despite having a more open refund policy on paper, I feel far more confident in Steam's approach.

@NeonPizza I am just happy to see someone else that didn’t like Celeste. I said that and I thought I would need to break out the pepper spray. Indie sacred cows are serious business. Also why I am careful not to mention that I don’t find stardew valley to be that amazing (I like it but I still prefer story of seasons).

@Ryu_Niiyama I really wanted to like Stardew Valley, but something about it didn't work for me, despite really liking some of the older Harvest Moon games.

I actually did enjoy Celeste, but the sky-high praise it gets confuses me. It's a competent indie platformer with decent music and an overwrought central metaphor. Not exactly goty material.

@Ralizah I feel very much the same about both games.

Stardew Valley just felt tedious - I hated how short the days were and I simply didn't enjoy anything I was doing. That said I don't have much experience with the genre so maybe it's just not my thing - the closest game I've really got into is Animal Crossing.

Celeste is a pretty good platformer but that's about it IMO. Its narrative is a lot more bare bones than people make it out to be and I agree that it's no GOTY contender.
