Will you be grabbing any of these awesome Nindies during the sale? Let us know which ones you're tempted by in the comments below.
Not that big of a sale, nothing for me.
Not interested with those Indie games.
The giveaway is a nice touch. I'll have to enter that.
Lovers in a dangerous space time is a good multiplayer game. I’ve been debating whether to get it. So I’m happy with this sale.
Nice, I've been waiting for a Thumper sale.
@Ziggy93 Me too for LIADST.
Also might finally try Graceful Explosion Machine.
Can't remember what half those others are, I'll have to look them up again.
Not exactly comparable the the UK Sale now is it?
Severed was such an engrossing game. I can't recommend it enough.
E-shop sales are one of these things were we've got plenty of room for improvement still.
Waiting for golf story)
Some cool stuff here.
It wasn't part of the list, but I just picked up Oxenfree at 75% off.
As for this list, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime looks enticing!
Nindies, the $0.99 mobile games with a $9.99 price tag that get a 30% discount
Some good games on the list here. A short list, but a good list. I might get GoNNER cause I like the art style, but I have so many games as it is.
Definitely getting Gonner now
Thimbleweed Park, yowzers!
Nothing for me. Given up on indies since we now have third party AAA's
I'm playing Lovers in Dangerous Spacetime with my girlfriend on ps4, such a nice game, great for co-op. Finished Severed on my vita, one of the better games for that system catalogue. I'm thinking about Death Squared, it looks like lots of fun.
I've had a ton of fun with GoNNER and Graceful Explosion Machine. Getting both for $16 is a steal.
@BigKing Yup, Gonner, Thimbleweed park and even Thumper are exactly the same as all cheap $1 mobile games....obviously...
Nothing for me. Still playing XC2 and recently bought Enter the Gungeon. That game I recommend to everyone 👍, be warned though, it is hard!but so addictive
I'm entitled to $1 games! Screw you, Devs and Nintendo!
@nab1 Mobile games being cheap or free-to-download (not really free though) seems to be the only facet many people see as a shining star in the Mobile market. Obviously, Nintendo should do the same thing.
@PlayedNSlayed Gungeon is nightmarishly addictive! Finally reached the boss of the 5th chamber on my 80th playthrough. Doubt I'll ever collect all the necessary items to get the true ending, but maybe I'll beat the 6th chamber some day and it's loads of fun whether or not I ever do!
The games provided on this sale are really solid titles, fun for anyone
That's a fantastic set of games. I'll be picking up Thimbleweed Park, since I think I have most of the rest already
Severed and GEM for me.
I went ahead and entered the contest, eh why not? As for the list in general, Thimbleweed Park was already on my wishlist anyway, so I'm debating if I want to dive in at 25% off-- Sales always come back around anyway, and it's possible if I'm patient enough it'll be even less next time. Not to mention I'm still playing other titles right now, but I'll figure that one out soon. Severed is a game that I've always had in the back of my mind as well. I like the plot, the gameplay looks fun, style is tolerable, but sale price and timing just never seem to meet good enough for me on it. There is one title not in that list that the world seems to gush about, and that's Oxenfree. A whopping 75% off until January 12 at only $4.99-- A visual novel/point-and-click game (One of my favorite genres), at a very low price, and reviews high? Yeah, Imma have to make this one happen. Hey NL, how about an Oxenfree review? Help me seal the deal
were these not on sale anyway?
These are not showing up for sale on my eShop?
Thumbleweed park and thumper for me.
Thumper thumped them all on this list.
I highly recommend GoNNER to anyone who hasn't played it. Absolutely fantastic rougelike-esque action platformer.
Where is that oxenfree discount ? Will we never get it in Europe ? Don't you have any info on that nintendolife ?
If you don't have Death Squared already, buy it!
It's tons of fun in multiplayer. Maybe even the best indie game on Switch right now.
Inversus! It's a perfect game for multiplayer with new people, I recommend it!
@BigKing Severed, Thumper, and Thimbleweed Park are certainly worth paying their eShop prices for. Not all indie games are shovelware.
Kinda wish Nintendo would learn how to do big sales. I often just get games on other systems because it just makes it more affordable :/
Thimbleweed Park was great. (I'm a child of the 80's and I love old-school adventure games for computers.)
Inversus DX for me I think.
I really liked Thumper in VR. I can't see myself playing it any other way, but I do recommend playing it in some way.
Literally nothing I want, I would have jumped at Golf Story since I still haven't got around to getting it since other games have had priority.
Death Squared looks like a ton of fun. I'm entering the giveaway pretty much just for that.
I wouldn't want any of these, even if they were all free
Lol damn the comments here are brutal , atleast Nintendo is starting off the eshop sales properly this year !
One game only with 35% off.
Man, the tepid disappointment about these games in this comment section ... which is quite a pity, as several are outstanding: Death Squared, Semispheres, GEM, Thumper, just to name a few I've played. All are unique and fun experiences well worth the price here. Too bad many just focus on the amount of the discount rather than the quality of the game : (
somewhat interested in Thimblewood park, but I still have too many other games to play especially since i just started in on xenoblade chronicles 2 lol.
@BigKing Always one person who comes out with such rubbish
I want a discount on Golf Story and Snake Pass
Meanwhile on PS4, the superior VR version: €7.99
Great deal bro.
I went ahead and picked up Death Squared. Thimbleweed was the only other game I thought about. Some of the other games looked solid but I don't think they were games I would enjoy. Thumper would be another one but I have that on PC.
@BigKing I agree with ya. PSVR is literally the only way I’ve played Thumper, but I hear it’s fine on Switch. I love it in VR though.
@kobashi100 I love Nintendo and my Switch, but their deals are just rubbish. It's almost insulting. They do stuff like 'ARMS SALE!!1 30% OFFZ' and it's still more expensive than the physical cart.
Got some nice stuff on sale there. Unfortunately nothing I really want, so gonna pass this time.
great little game, well worth that price
I hear that lol
