According to Eurogamer, it sits somewhere between the last gen version and the current-gen one, prioritizing frame rate primarily through adaptive resolution, and is a very good port.

New sales on the (American) Nintendo e-shop. I think this is the first time Iíve seen Mario Kart 8 on sale there and I bought it. (often on the Japanese e-shop, but Iíve never bothered setting up a Japanese paypal account or whatever you need to do) Almost tempted to buy Splatoon 2. Mario + Rabbids bundle is heavily discounted, too. Have never played a musou game... is now the time to get Hyrule Warriors? (no) Not tempted by Octopath Traveler but that was apparently a hot game so have at it.

Just scrolled down the Great Deals tab on the eshop... why are there so many more horny games for (straight) women than (straight) men? I will attribute some (all?) of this to: they are not pornographic, so they can be sold there. Is it all just one company? I looked at two of the games and they were by different companies, but maybe that was a fluke. Just an auspicious time of year to sell them? Hmm.

Found out Splatoon 2 has an app you can look at for when you donít have your Switch handy, so I think Iíll pass.

Humble Store is running a sale on lots of games. I just picked up Civ VI at 75% off. It is a good game!

The physical Switch version of Starlink, with the starter pack of ships, is now between $25-30 at most retailers it seems. Noticed it at Target last night, thought it might have been a special sale, but checked online and it seems to be everywhere.

Uh, same here, around 30 ~ 35Ä.

That said, it's the game any good?

Very much so, loved it start to finish!

That being said, that much of a price drop that soon after release doesnít bode hat well for a sequel.

I'd argue being a toy-to-life didn't bode well for a sequel in the first place. Browsing online I see non-Switch versions are even cheaper (14.99Ä brand new starter pack for PS4 in Amazon!) while add-on ships are still a bit pricey (14 ~20Ä).

I am trying to rein in my videogame expenses, but I'm so tempted to grab the Switch version and then hit the goodwills around looking for cheap ships....
