Looks a little slow for my liking but admitedly it looks pretty fun. I reckon I can hold out until Yooka-Laylee though!

Nice, Rudy! Did you get the US version of Zelda? I prefer that box art so much more than the one we got... Wish it was reversible. The reverse of ours is Link climbing a mountain, which isn't bad, but man, it's not like us to get the worse box art compared to the US.

Snake Pass (Switch)

It's really good, get it!


No plans for a physical release I presume? It does look really good, it makes me think of old Rareware in looks and sound.

Yeah, just eShop at the moment.

It does feel like old Rare, for sure. Even has a soundtrack by David Wise. Smilie

We'll see when my order arrives but i think that was just them goofing up when posting the image of the cover art on their site. Some stores here are known to get us copies instead if they're region free just to save a few quids on each copies and increase their margins but i'd be surprised if those guys did since they're more a line of toy shops than specialised in video games. My copy of Setsuna got sent today too, so I might get the whole bunch by next week.

I've been wanting Pokken Tournament for quite sometime now...I had been hoping that it would become a Switch port but the price for the WiiU copy kept creeping up so I've finally bit the bullet.

I found Perfect Dark for $10 (AU), I have never seen it that cheap before so I picked it up on a whim!

Just ordered this, which should arrive by next morning. My mate got this one for his Switch at launch, and I must say I'll feel a lot better knowing that my Switch is well protected by this. I chose not to go cheap on purpose (it was 15€) and to go with a tempered glass protection. Now I only need a good pouch, but the system itself + 2 games + that protection has left me dry, and I want to save for MK8 Deluxe later this month cause I want in on that action with you guys when it launches Smilie.

Yeah, glass protector is defo the way to go for the Switch. Heard some bad things about film layers not working so well with it.

Not sure who is picking MK8 on Switch from here tho. I rinsed it dry on Wii U, and the price they're selling it for makes no sense for me to buy it just for a battle mode that should have been in there already. I really have no reason to return to that game on either console now. Add more cup tracks and I would have thought about it, but even then, it would need to be a lot cheaper.

If ever DLC there should be again, it will be for this one, not the Wii U version (even if technically they still could, they wouldn't, so as to shift copies of the Switch version). I also agree that there should have been more tracks from the start, but I'm pretty sure they'll be there eventually and they're going to make us pay for it. DLC sold well on MK8, that worked well for them, so I don't see them not trying it again on Switch. It will be worth it in the end, and I don't see the price of a MK game going down any time soon. Maybe down the line, there will be a MyNintendo discount, but I think it's unlikely for it to go down soon. Pretty sure a hard copy of the Wii U version still goes for the same price it did at launch.
Some places are selling it for 60€ over here, but if you look well other places sell it for 10€ less.

If they ever add DLC, that's probably the only time I'd think about rebuying it for Switch, but it's a big ask. I don't often rebuy games I already own on other systems, but when I do, it's when they're a lot cheaper. I have a hard time justifying me rebuying this one, even though I know it makes sense for them to bring it to the Switch. I just believe there should be a lot more added for those that bought it on Wii U already. The price doesn't justify the content*, and while I had a lot of fun in MK8, I'm not sure I have much desire to return to it now. I burnt myself out finally getting 10,000pts online lol. Never say never tho - if I miraculously find it for a great price one day, I'm sure I'll get it, but right now it's highly unlikely.

*By this, I mean for someone that already hammered it to death on the Wii U, and that it is a port with not a lot added. It's definitely great value for money, especially with all the included DLC, but as a port of a 3-year-old game that I have already hammered, it's just too much for me to buy again.

I have not hammered it nearly as much, so that's perhaps why I'm more inclined to get it again. That and the fact it's now portable, and I can see myself playing this two player with split JoyCons on the go, I mean I can picture this kind of situation arising in the future where I'd use the game that way. Otherwise I wholeheartedly agree with you of course. If they offered a trade-in or something for the Wii U version, or discount for owners of the original, that would be so much more worth it and an easier buy for sure.

Cubed3 Limited Staff :: Review and Feature Writer

Yeah, I don't know about Mario Kart 8. I don't plan on picking it up at launch, but if it drops quite a bit in price or I can get a discount, I may get it in the future. I'm pretty happy with the Wii U version for now, if I really want to play. I want to play the Battle Mode (especially Bob-Omb one), but it's not enough to make me go out and get it again for the price they're selling it at.

I will add though, it's a great deal if you've never played or owned Mario Kart 8 before. I'd get it in a heartbeat if I hadn't got it on Wii U.

I have the same issue with FAST Racing RMX on Switch, i own the disc version of NEO which comes with the DLC, although RMX has added 8 new tracks i still can't justify another 17quid on the Switch version.

However with MK8 i don't own the DLC...so....if i saw MK8 for the right price i might just cave...

Also, i have a screen protector for the switch, but not a tempered glass one...although i can't imagine ever taking a hammer to it anyway...

FAST RMX I'm not getting right away for that reason as well. Though I don't have the DLC, but I'm also not nearly as big a fan of FAST as I am of Mario Kart. Later down the line FAST RMX is bound to be discounted on the eShop and there's always the small chance that they do a physical release once again with possibly some more DLC tacked on (though I don't know about the latter cause the game is pretty packed as it is at this point).

Cubed3 Limited Staff :: Review and Feature Writer

If FAST RMX was physical at that price then i would re-purchase it. But not for digital. Nuh uh!

Also just picked these up!

Works much better than the original did! Shame about the lack of inside box art though. :/

I plan on picking it up at some point, too! I never got it on Wii U, and it it looks really great. Seems like the Switch version is a really good port, too with some nice improvements over the original. I also heard the Nintendo exclusive content is still in the Switch version, so that's a nice bonus.

I had a hard time getting into it on Wii U when it was lent to me. I always felt that there wasn't really much to the open world outside of missions that interested me. I don't know why, but I just don't click, so I don't think I'll get it this time either.

I've had a hankering to get LEGO City on Switch, but these games do perhaps feel a bit too easy for my liking.

I purchased this on the weekend (retail) as it was half price $19 (AUS), I initially had a tough time with it but I am starting to quite enjoy it. It does feel like a game of luck though. It's pretty brutal at times.

EB Games have a 7 day returns policy (similar to what Gamestation did with their 10 returns policy back in the day) , so I reckon i'll play it, try and complete it and then return it and use that money towards Mario Kart 8....(i've caved).

Also, this could be a quick way to get MyNintendo Gold points, providing I don't piss off EBgames that is.

I actually bought this set and traded it straight back in but took the amiibo and cards out. I paid $6 in total so totally worth it!

Back in stock! So i had to pick up a second controller!

Well, today I ordered my very first Microsoft console...

Image for

A refurbed Xbox 360 60GB. I figure it's worth a punt at £30, so why not? And then I went straight on a shopping spree that pretty much sums me up.

Well I guess that makes sense given your avatar, did you buy some kleenex to go with all of that Smilie

I'd recommend the Gears of War games, you could probably pick them up pretty cheap these days!

haha, unfortunately, the pre-DOA5 anime doll style doesn't quite do it for me any more XD

Will look into GOW. Probably gonna wait to see if the console works nice and proper first.

Check after playing a first disc in it to see if your system doesn't scratch discs. Problem with those cheap systems, even if they are labeled refurbished, is that they may still have some small flaws that do not hamper its immediate usability, but discs that get repeatedly scratched along the same line all around the disc by a 360 with an unstable drive become unreadable over time. Best to not damage multiple discs at once if you can help it by being vigilant.

Cubed3 Limited Staff :: Review and Feature Writer

Noted. I know it's a risk buying such an old system, but the price was too good to pass up. I thought it best I buy from a proper seller with a warranty than finding it in some random indie store.

Yea 360's are literally built so shoddly. I can't believe that they were ever able to continue selling the 360 given the sheer number of problems with that console!
