I thought there would be 8 heroes, not 4 with two costumes. I was hoping to play as the one from DQVII. Though honestly he looks like a difficult character to play as anyway so I probably wouldn’t use him much.

If every person who told you your vote actually mattered voted for the same person as you, your vote would still be worthless at overcoming all the people who voted Donald Trump/Boris Johnson/Scott Morrison into office.

No, it's only playable for free for a week. It's like when games have free play weekends on XBL & Steam.

For Mario Aces, that's about 5 days longer than you need for the single player. It's a good idea, though, because it'd be nice to try out multiplayer which is the game's biggest feature.

GET TO THE MONEY!!!!

if it's not priced insanely, I will grab it.
18+ year old games that can be had for about $5 each
plus a bit of cash for them taking the time to give em a spit polish.. $20

if it's $30 or less I'll pick it up. any more, I won't bother.

Grandia 2 is AU$29 on Steam, so I doubt it will be under AU$59 for both on the Switch.

Yes, a bit expensive for digital only.

Just wait for it to go on special.

meh, I'll have gotten sick of waiting and ripped it off WELL before it's a reasonable price. :olol: $30 IS A FAIR PRICE for a game that's at least 18 years old.

And since this is the Nintendo thread. I've cancelled my pre-order of Links awakening limited edition. I've promised myself to stop buying tat and only getting games, and paying $30 for a gameboy style case is just a little much. (Especially when the gameboy case, however awesome, won't even be the dimensions of a gameboy)

I'm gonna wait for Links awakening to go cheap after a year (especially since I've played it MANY, MANY TIMES before, and I only payed $64 for BOTW)

I wonder if it will have the original's impossibly floaty and stiff controls?
