There is a deal I can use if buying everything online, and I'll be buying the system new if I go ahead. I was considering getting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu (I want Primeape and can't spare NZ$32.95 just to trade) but there is also a Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal on used games. Biggest issue is that BotW isn't available used except through store pickup, so no chance getting that and won't be able to afford it new with all the other games since most of them aren't much cheaper, only the B2G1F deal makes them tempting. Two games instead of it might make the wait worth it.

Looking at the available games, can still get Pokemon, and might go with Fire Emblem: Warriors (even have an Amiibo since I bought one for Code Name: STEAM) but I'm not sure what I'd get for a third game. Octopath Traveller is a maybe, but I'd already be getting an RPG and a Musou game, so I'd have enough grind ahead already. Bayonetta 2 is out simply because NZ$98 without the download of the original is stupidly overpriced. Got most of the remaining games elsewhere except for Mario Tennis and Captain Toad, but I'll listen to suggestions if they have a good reason to double dip.

If Pokemon supported single system trading, I'd just consider getting both so I'd have one for a challenge run, but I imagine it doesn't.

Forgot the link of the games

Eh, most are still overpriced. If I was dumping the full price on this in one lump, I wouldn't bother. In the last 16 years, I only bought two systems when new.

How does that make you stupid? lol

PC plus Switch is master race. For real high end games, play them (usually for cheaper) on PC, and then you have a switch for everything else. Only thing you're missing out on is the few PS4 exclusives, but you can get almost as much enjoyment just watching a playthough of those most of the time.

Do it. It's a great console especially if you have another console/PC to pair with it. Games like Breath of Wild and Mario Odyssey are great while ports like Skyrim and Doom are cool to have portably.

System and a couple of games come up to NZ$800. That could normally get me 80 - 100 games on other systems.

In fact, I've spent probably a bit less on the 90 games I have for the 360 I got given for Christmas.

PSTV was awesome for US$20. A Switch version of one would be cool.

Found a cart that will maximise what I'm able to get while still being within the price limit I'll have.

I went into the store with money I stole from my brother instead (paying him $100 a week, it means he can't spend everything while off work, he is down $2200 in two days on fuck knows what).

Almost no used games to use on the B2G1F deal, certainly not the ones I wanted. So now I have new games, but at least I got The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Also got Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and The Lego Movie 2 Videogame (system bonus).

buy it
but unless the games exclusive
don't buy that on the switch

but yeah even if you only play four games, if one of them is zelda and the other has mario in it, it's good
metroid coming, pokemon coming, no reason not to buy it

i actually prefer 2d games on the switch

I own a Switch, but haven't felt like buying many games since everything is full list or close to full list atm and there's not much I'm willing to pay full list for.

Which in real money is like $550?

$550/90 = $6.11

Geez, you overpaid! And here I thought you were a price-savvy gamer.

Most games were between NZ$2 and NZ$8, less than 10 were higher.

Nope, NZ$759 was spent, which is real money. :P

Still too much though, the lack of used games sucked. Maybe I should have gone for Fire Emblem: Warriors and Pokken Tournament DX, and grabbed Mario as filler for free game.

Also uses has more storage space. All I've wanted since Gamecube is for Nintendo to just have a normal console.
