They’ve fixed that, and then some. Nowdays, Not only do they do PC/Xbox crossplay pretty commonly for their first-party titles, when you buy an eligible(usually first-party) game on Xbone or Windows store, you get it’s equivalent on the other platform.
But isn’t this what computers are for? Installing programs? What’s the issue with installing programs? Am I missing something?
Seems kind of silly to have so many stores installed. Would you install 5 different word processors?
Also, all these store apps are full of ads, tracking, privacy invading, DRM, and generally bad stuff. Fewer is better.
I have something like nine or ten different word preocessors and text editors.
All the rest of those issues seem to be the same issues with the internet and modern computing anyway. Do you think you are being tracked zero amount without any game stores installed? And that installing a new store makes all the difference?
Seems like you are intentionally making your life worse for now reason.
Anyway, I’m skipping out of this thread unless I have the idea that any discussion with Scott is worth anyone’s time, including my own.
TumbleSeed on Switch for $5.
Ok, so check this out.
If you have the bs Nintendo Online service which costs $20 a year, you are eligible to purchase two game vouchers. The two vouchers cost $100 total (plus tax and shit). You can redeem each voucher for one free digital game on Switch. Obviously, you choose the most expensive games, which are $60. You basically save $20. You get Mario Maker 2 and then maybe get Animal Crossing and there you go. $20 saved.
Basically, this is identical to “buy two $60 games and get Switch Online service for free for one year.”
But there’s more. If you are like me, unwilling to pay for Nintendo online, but you got it for free thanks to Twitch Prime, then you actually save $20 more.
So basically, if you have a Switch, and Nintendo Online (even if you got it for free thanks to Twitch Prime) and you play to buy two $60 Switch games in the near-ish future (not sure how long before the vouchers expire), you should buy two game vouchers.
EDIT: The vouchers are good for 12 months. You must have an active Nintendo Online subscription at the time you purchase the vouchers, and also at the time you use them.
As much as that would benefit me to save $20, I’m going to wait to see what Animal Crossing packages/deals they may have. I bet they will have special joycons. UGH. I want them separately, even though I have enough joycons in red, blue, pink, and green.
Even if you buy some physical edition of Animal Crossing, I am positive that within the next 12 months there will be two other $60 Switch games you will buy digitally.
Will almost definitely cost $60 and be out this year:
Mario Maker 2
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Dragon Quest Builders 2
Fire Emblem game
May or may not cost $60:
Link’s Awakening Remake
Mineko’s Night Market
Might not be out within the year, but will cost $60 for sure
Metroid Prime 4
Dragon Quest 10/11
Some kind of Shin Megami Tensei game
Mario Maker 2
Pokemon (may have some cool exclusives though)
Zelda: Link’s Awakening
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
I don’t need this now. If it exists when Metroid Prime 4 comes out, I might grab it. I’m going to wait and see.
I can’t believe Link’s Awakening will be $60, but we’ll see. I’m not sure Mario Maker 2 is worth $60 to me.
Having finished Zelda, I went and bought a bunch of small games—Baba is You, The Messenger, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1, Shovel Knight.
The vouchers are only available until July 31, 2019.
I love the varying amounts of respect the names for games have on this list. There are just the names as they are “Pokemon Sword/Shield, Mineko’s Night Market”, names that are about there “Dragon Quest 10/11 (who cares about exact numbers), Fire Emblem game” and then there is “Some kind of Shin Megami Tensei game”
Also good to remember that it works on older games. I was considering using half of this to get Mario Odyssey.
If they can do vouchers once, they can do it again. There aren’t two big Nintendo games I want to buy in the next year. Hence, wait and see.
Why are they doing vouchers at all? This is a somewhat weird, roundabout discount.
Nintendo is weird.
Also, even though it’s a discount of $20, Nintendo gets your $50 now instead of your $60 later. That doesn’t count all the foolish people who will only save themselves $10 or fewer dollars and not maximize the discount. That doesn’t count all the people who might be tricked into getting Nintendo Online because this makes it free.
At least it’s easier to max out this discount than to mess with airline miles.
Maybe they’re trying to goose their subscription numbers? And trick people into staying subscribed?
Sims 4 is free for a limited time https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/the-sims/the-sims-4
I don’t know if they are any good, but these Age of Wonders games are free/dirt cheap.
The Messenger is 33% of on PS4/Steam/Switch and just got new, free DLC. If you liked NES Ninja Gaiden and want a dash of Metroidvania, check it out.
