You’ve been able to the above with Xbone and PS4 from the get go.

I like a physical, but occasionally digital is so silly cheap I can’t resist. **** paying more than the cost of a physical copy for a digital one. It’s wrong

I agree. Retail games are usually much cheaper on physical and Indies are MUCH cheaper through the eshop. Money talks. The value of convenience vs nicety-of-physical shifts on the Switch though. Switch boxes are cute little cases of meh.

Most of my collection are first party value holders so all things considered (although not actually checked) I’m guessing it might be a bit cheaper to convert most to digital.

Resale value is the obvious big loss but convenience and single-copy-multiplayer are big gains. Also, dunno if I’ll ever resell anyway. With it running on cheap standard mobile tech, everything points towards Nintendo’s next consoles being more like iPad upgrades for a while and therefore migrateable. They said before reveal that they were looking to put a stop to the barrier of unique computer components with each generation.

Physical tickles the nostalgia bone spending hard saved pocket money in the shops not knowing whether what you picked was decent, then waiting for tapes to load everytime you wanted to play, and borrowing/lending/swapping games with your friends.

Digital is the sensible stay at home, penny wise adult way of gaming.

I have enough grown up **** in my life.

On the rare occasions I think I’ll finally get round to playing Mario Odyssey, oh... Nathan’s taken it off in his Switch case. :problem:

That’s my main reason tbh.

This is all an interesting thought experiment about something I’ll never be arsed to do.

You’re right about physical romance. Wish my heart was in it more.

Despite my best efforts not to go digital and to mainly buy physical only :lolno: ,I've amassed quiet a few digital buys probably more digital that physical now :problem: .Now I don't mind when they are a fraction of the physical release and at a good price point ....But some of this has come down to a lot of the physicals being well overpriced for what they are.
Celeste was like 9/10 quid recently digital and the physical was like 45ish odd euro when you factored in shipping ! (no idea what if the digital included everything tbh#) **(also no idea what will eventually be on the physical ) :lol: but in other middling games its worked out similar. no way id ever buy any nintendo ip digital unless it has no resale value once serves go down.

I'm somewhat excited for the new game. Here's hoping the music holds up and is similar to the classic tracks, because I'm fussy.

Franco said dead cells was good. I bought it, a year later I’ll say it’s good :oops:
Great isn't it :awe: I've just reinstalled it after a long hiatus. I had almost forgotten how much fun it is! Frame rate is much better after the update too. 8-)

Enjoying Links Awakening, I've not played the GB version so I cant compare. I bet the GB frame rate is more consistent though :problem:

I instantly preferred the Lite to the OG Switch. It’s exactly what I’d wanted when I first played the original.

The dock and joypad/joycon cradle dock controller thing haven’t even been out of the box. Handheld and cabs are the only way I get to play games these days so it’s great to have a dedicated handheld Switch which does away with creaky joycons and tiny buttons for a d-pad :problem:

New Link’s Awakening’s ace. I played the GB version to death back int’ day and it’s great to play a refreshed version. It’s beautiful but the frame rate does get a bit choppy on the main map.

It's usually between area transitions, then goes back to 60fps.

The only area which is consistently bad is the swamp.

I've had 2 evenings with it so far. Already at the 7th dungeon! :-o

I can't really handle massive open world games anymore (no time with a naughty 8 month old boy!). :oops:

Looks like it's time for a play through again 8-)

After playing the original I tried the Definitive Edition on PC a while back but the frame rate was terribad. This looks great :awe:
