Heads up, Nintendo Life are selling eShop cards for 10% off (They have a store now!?!?!)

https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/02/nintendo-announces-huge-switch-sale-more-than-1000-games-to-be-discounted

Can confirm that the discount code works and that you can use it more than once! (Remember that Nintendo don't let you add more than £225 worth of eShop credit to your Nintendo Account per day ;))

I am interested in Octopath Traveler, it does not seem that it will go any lower. My problem is that I have it on GamePass, and I don't wanna spend to much money on it because of that. But it looks like a concole game, not a PC game. Tough choice.

Then the Trine Ultimate Collection looks like a great price, as I have never played any of the games.

Smoke and Sacrifice is really cheap, was always interested in the game, but was never sure if I should get it.

Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 and 3 have a good price and I will get it with time as it is always on sale, but it looks interesting.

Beautifull Desolation is also anotherone that looks interesting for this price.

XCOM 2 is also very cheap, but I think I have it on PC (STEAM or EPIC)

Then Super Bomberman R, Slaps and Beans (this has only to do with my childhood :D)

God Eater 3 (at least on the US eshop is also cheap).

My only problem is that I have such a big backlog that I am not sure if I should spend any money on games right now (only the MK 8DLC, or the improved online subscription).

I hope to get some help here :)

I'd say, look at how much you expect to play the Switch in the near future, set yourself a rough budget and go from there. I'm talking to myself here as I have several games from previous eShop sales from the year before last and further back that I'm yet to boot up once. :blank: The eShop has constant sales so games can always be got on the cheap again at a later date.

X:COM 2 at £4 is an absolute no brainer if you haven't played it. Brilliant game with brilliant addon content included.

Great shout. The file size (24997.00 MB) is eye-watering though. My Switch would be bulging at the seams if I tried to get that into it. 

@Dcubed Help me out here--I'm drawing a blank on GAA Chronicles. There could well be a game chronicling the GAA, but if there was it doesn't look like it would fit with the rest of the list you've seen fit to highlight. ::shrug: 

---------------------------------

I noticed A Boy and His Blob is on sale. Definitely worth checking out for anyone who didn't have it on Wii.

Amazing, eh? :o How would you say it measures up against Shovel Knight, for example?

 

Hard to say as they are very different games. Cyber Shadow is a lot faster and more difficult but much more satisfying. Shovel Knight is a more easy going experience. I love them both.

I nabbed a couple of games from the current sale including INSIDE (£1.79) and LIMBO (£0.89). I've played through Inside and I'll tell you what, that was an experience. Wow. The hairs on the back of my neck barely had a chance to fall flat between chills. Spine-tingling.

I don't recommend that you play Cyber Shadow then. :D 

Fired Shovel Knight up again and it's something about the way he jumps off ladders and the momentum from conveyors and moving platforms that isn't second-nature to me. :(

I loved both of those games, if you can call them games, I'd put them more as an interactive experience. But yeah great atmospheric games and great prices.

I cannot tell if Guacamelee is actually free or if the page is glitched:

https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/guacamelee-one-two-punch-collection-switch/

Weird... That can't be right.

Also, apparently the UK Ninty Store doesn't have that collection? Tried searching for it there, but only got the standalone games.

I bought the MK8 Booster Pack from my Russian eShop account. It was 2075 rubles. I'm a bit interested to see if that transaction actually goes through and how much I actually end up paying. The price in rubles is locked but the currency conversion is not. Or if my bank will even allow it at this time. It hasn't been a problem previously. (I had some gold points on the extra account that "lives" in Russia that I wanted to use).
