Still a ripoff
All Nintendo Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Just be aware you get 3 months free access to Just Dance Live which has hundred of songs. After that it’s £20 a year. You really do need it as the best songs can be found there.
Lad will dig this for his birthday.
Thanks OP! My daughter loves the Just Dance games - 4% quidco too :)
Thanks good deal, daughter will be really pleased with this for her Switch. Heat added
Good price @myshon - my kids love these games :)
Career mode is something I've always had an issue with in Tennis games. The only recent game with a career mode I can get into is Tennis Elbow 2013. Before that was Game, Net and Match which was 1998!
I don’t think it’s a case of having a sparse line up of players, more that it’s expensive t get the licences to have them. It’s a relatively small publisher remember. EA have given up on Tennis games. I’ve high hopes for this game, but if the gameplay is right and the career mode has longevity, I can wait for licensed players and tournaments. Whether they be free downloads or not. 🤞
If you're interested in running homebrew and custom firmware, the scene just exploded and its based around an un-patchable firmware bug. The only way to fix it is a hardware revision from Nintendo, so if you wait to buy chances are you wont be able to use this exploit
I think theyre talking about hacks
Its annoying coz I kinda want those two - the roster will be sparse as it is - holding two big names back is all dubious in my eyes.
In my world? No. On hukd, maybe, we're stretching comparatives here. Again, pointless. The majority of freebies require something paid for, thats what im saying. Pointless argument. If its not pointless to you, then I do hope your pushing your point on all applicable freebies. Otherwise ask yourself why here and nowhere else? Fanboy? I wouldn t even wish I had time for that nonsense, nintendo, xbox, ps, really couldnt give a rats arse about whose better, if "I" enjoy something thats all that matters.
Stupidity? So these games with gold and ps+ are free in your world huh? And "again" is obviously in reference to nintendo re-releasing wii u games at full price yet again for the sad nintendo fans that accept it and lap it up.
Not sure if "again" is in reference to Game or Nintendo but cant see why you have to buy again on Nintendo, unless you're coming from old to new console. Either way its a pretty poor/pointless argument, its a freebie in as much as the majority of freebies are. When you start saying its not free because you have to buy the games first, you're diving head first into the rabbit hole of stupidity.
It costs nothing to register the games? You have to buy the games(again) in order to register. That's not free.
Who cares about the game......£64.99 for a Harvest Moon mug is the way I'm seeing it. (y)
Really wanted this (would of been my first HM) buy everything I've seen and read about it screams awful. Looks like a shit mobile game.
Yes, since 2014 Natsume have been shamelessly using the Harvest Moon name. Story of Seasons is the real Harvest Moon :) Interesting reading all about it on Wikipedia
Harvest Moon is just a name these days, the original developers moved on to a new game called Story of Seasons.
I've ended up with two copy's of this special edition and not a fan of Cex. If anyone would like to trade for their Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle or Pokken Tournament I'd be happy to discuss.
Was too busy doing what now!? (excited) :p (flirt) ;)
Was too busy debating and missed it but thanks for all the positive comments, will definitely snap it up if I see it at this sort of price :)
Thanks I just ordered :D Best price I've seen for this edition
Seems like more stock. I just ordered a copy now.
Yep Base changes the price so no need to cancel (y)
That’s how I’m reading it.
Thank you. :)
Base alters the price. You don’t need to do anything.
Thanks for that. So based on base's T&C's we would have to cancel and reorder to get the current reduced price otherwise if the price increases from £28.99 but does not go above the original pre-order price then we would still pay the lowest price on dispatch. Its a shame its not like amazon's price promise. If I am wrong about this then please correct me. :)
I'm glad they're releasing all these old games on switch but come on, £25 for 16 years old game ?! You can get them on steam for less than a £1 each: https://www.g2a.com/syberia-steam-key-global-i10000000233004 https://www.g2a.com/syberia-ii-steam-key-global-i10000000280004 They should release virtual console on Switch - that's what I'm waiting for but looks like they're not going to do that:(
Couple of squid on steam
Whenever I see this cover I instantly assume it's one of those trash asset flip games found on Steam. They really could do with changing that
I personally cant believe they are charging this much (for re-releases), especially when the games are so old.
We are probably about to come in for some criticism, but I also appreciate and desire a bit of nice box art, and an attractive cover. There should be a Wooly Mammoth on the front cover. I don't get why with repackaged *budget* games they go out of their way to give themselves extra work and ruin the cover and replace with inferior stuff. At least it doesn't have a big "selects" logo on it :) I think I will buy this version anyway as a good deal. Will wait till it has been released in June though, as if you buy it a day later you can use your 365 points to get a few quid off. Bit silly they don't let you use your points on pre-orders.
I have this game and it's poor compared to the PS4 version. It stutters a lot and slows down. Kids probably won't care though....
Really? I wonder what damage Pac Man and Mario handle on my generation, eating pills, chasing ghost and stomping on koppa Troopas heads. Personally never had more than a speeding ticket, never a parking ticket, never in trouble for violence and am actually a member of charity against such as was raised with a violent threat father. I think it's more the parents not the video games, teach them right and they have knowledge and respect. After all, it's a proven fact video games doesn't promote violence but decrease it, its a parents job to make sure its age appropriate. Not directing that last part at anyone.
I noticed slow down when a lot of action was happening at same time, for example destroying a silver statue and generating a lot of studs. However, a minor issue with an otherwise great game, at this price highly recommended!
The game is no different from 30 to 50 years ago when young children played around being cowboys and Indians. Shooting each other with bow/ arrows and guns. Fast forward 20 years ago and it was ninja turtles where kids went around doing flying kicks, playing rough on each other. Let kids be kids. Boys especially will always be interested in this and Lego is certainly the best exposure for extremely mild elements of crime/ violence. As a parent you can just explain these actions and educate them on the real world. Let them be kids but also don't put them in a bubble. Harmless fun exposure like Lego is probably a good start. Explaining and educating is always the best policy. Anyone who uses gaming as an excuse, for example that one element that made them commit crimes or violently hurt people, are talking rubbish. It's parenting (all kinds, scenarios, broken homes, DV etc.) , bad influences with friends/ other kids, lack of discipline, social media that 'can' influence children to act in that kind of way. But I do think it's important to try and review most kinds of entertainment that your children watch. But mild increasing exposure over the years is needed. We all know of someone who was put in a bubble far too long and it shows significantly on their teenage/ adult life. *please this is not a dig at yourself. I do not know anything about you. My opinion/ point is that Lego games are not bad at all and probably a great learning tool in general life etc.
Downloads ftom Russian eShop comes with free novichok DLC too!
Revolut is your friend for currency conversion without fees (strong)
Looks good with a wacky story but gameplay seems meh to me. Not sure if I will get it.. Heat for price!!
When you upgrade to a next gen majority of the games your holding on to are then worth near nothing.
nintendo exclusives should b bought on cartridges as they hold thir value, and 1 day u will likely want to sell it on if u upgrade to next gen of console
Base has the pre-order on 39.85£. They are having great prices las months (since I realized) and prefer to buy from other places instead of Amazon. https://www.base.com/buy/product/mario-tennis-aces-nintendo-switch/dgc-mtans.htm
from the looks of it this just seems like mario tennis with a story mode, not really worth 40 so gonna wait for a price drop
Looking forward to this. You'd think they'd be bringing out a new strikers game though given its the world cup this year. Very odd
Noice- I'll be picking this up. Like a bit of Norse mayhem
https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/credit-cards/travel-credit-cards The worst cards have a spending fee or minimum charge for foreign currency transactions. 50p - £1.50 on top (horror) Bad for small transactions
I was charged 4p extra on top of what the game costs. I'm fine with a small transaction fee as i only intend to buy the small games digitally
Your welcome, enjoy :)
Just bought through mobile £4, all works perfect, thanks man!
The US & Canada are relatively easy as I use PCGameSupply.com to buy eshop top-up cards (usually during a discount offer). I've also used the Russian eshop but that's treated like an EU store so my Revolut card works there. The only slightly more convoluted one was the Japanese store, had to set up an Amazon JP account. And I do have different accounts for each store.
Well worth the money. Great game!
It's super difficult to buy from non-EU stores from the UK, unless you create a whole separate account and have a card that works.
On sale until the 1st May, the top three prices being; Mexico $209.99 approx. £8.21 (not sure about any additional taxes) Canada $14.99 approx. £8.38 (plus at least 5% sales tax) United States $14.99 approx. £8.43 (0% sales tax if you choose the right State) Full list HERE.
I was playing the demo the other day and I thought to myself, "when this comes up on sale, I'm going to get it". The rest, as they say, is history.
This lot seem to think so.
This any good
£14.15 @ Sweden eshop
I ordered this last week, great deal, but please note that if you want the exterior box to be in mint condition then you might be disappointed as they ship them in plastic packaging. Mine turned up a little tatty, but I can deal with that. :)
I’m trying my luck via AliExpress. Almost the same pricing, here’s hoping it arrives without any nasty surprises (embarrassed)
A great controller. I used this to complete Celeste on the Switch (a fairly difficult game) and had no problems whatsoever. While the d-pad isnt perfect, it is MUCH better than the one on the official Switch Pro controller. It pairs with the Switch straight out of the box. You are able to turn the console off with the controller, however you CANNOT wake the console with the controller and so will have to press the power button on the Switch to wake it. The best feature for me though is that I can pair this with multiple devices at once. For me this is: 1: Nintendo Switch 2: PC 3: SNES Mini with 8bitdo dongle. You can switch between all devices really easily without having to pair each time. When you turn the controller on, you just hold a button down that represents the device you will be using it on, i.e hold down "Y" for Switch, "X" for PC, then press the "Start" button. It will automatically go into the correct mode without having to pair each time for different devices. It also remembers the last device you used it with so only need to press the "Start" button to go back into the last used mode. A very well made controller. It supports everything the official Switch PRO controller does EXCEPT NFC (only useful for scanning amibos). Its not as comfy as a PRO controller, but if you have ever used a SNES controller then you know what to expect. Hope this is useful.
yes, but it'll take a few weeks
Is it free shipping to the uk with the pad before I look to order one
im sorry to hear that, i would open that case immediately, you've already waited 3 months thats more than generous imo. Also in my experience paypal almost always side with the buyer so i'd like to think you'll have a good chance of getting your money back. good luck (y)
Lashed out and got the mini figure one lol. My son saw this and immediately wanted it so thanks for the heads up and what is a significant saving. Heat added
Just debating whether to pre order the one with the mini figure for an extra fiver.....
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there have been issues with orders going missing or being late, my issue is specifically with their so called loyalty scheme. They were extremely inflexible with me and had I instead converted my points and placed my orders two days later, I would then have been entitled to the extra points. Seems a bit ridiculous to penalise a customer for the sake of two days, rather than give them what they should have been entitled to by rights, especially as the orders had not been despatched by that stage.
I ordered a couple of games from them (one was a pre order) and got the first game two days layer. No issues with 365 so far, however it is early days for me.
I would implore everyone on this site to NOT use 365games. I placed two orders one day after another and used points I gained previously to convert into vouchers to use on those orders. On the third day, I received an email advising of a promotion whereby if I convert my points into vouchers and redeem them against an order, I can gain an additional amount of points, eligible for one week only. As I had literally placed two orders over the previous two days, I asked if they could give me the points, instead of me cancelling and reordering, as I had already converted my points into a voucher and redeemed it. They told me basically if they did it for me, everyone would have to get the same treatment, so tough. I rated their service as poor in response. I got an email back from 'Mia', a trainee customer service person (that should have been the clue), that she might be able to offer me some points as a token gesture, but just to be clear, I wouldn't be getting anywhere near what I could have received had I placed the order when the promotion went live. She then had the cheek to demand that I change how I personally rated the service that she gave me. Needless to say, I gave them a mouthful. I have cancelled my order for Shenmue (the other was too late to cancel) and I will be closing down my account. I would strongly recommend everyone else does likewise, as they do not give a damn about customer loyalty, unlike thegamecollection and base.com, who have to date been excellent and of course don't take money up front. Previously I would defend 365games but after this email response, I will no longer support them and will be closing my account. Please think twice before using this company if you care about loyalty schemes, as they have no loyalty to their customers.
I know someone who swears by Toby deals and it's really caveat emptor. She hasn't had any issue, but as others have mentioned, after sales service is almost non-existent on this one.
As I understand it, these are Asian market imports so even if you have any problems (I'm on my 3rd Nintendo Switch since launch, 1 LCD screen, 1 battery) trying to return it to "Toby deals" Nintendo won't touch it as it as not an EU model either.
Has anyone actually bought from them so actually knows what they're like? So tempting, especially with the code WELCOME6 for new customers that gives you another £6 off.
Not going to chance it even at this price I'd rather wait and buy from somewhere more reputable still heat for a good price for anyone that trusts the company :)
Looks like one of those wowcher clone companies
Loved this on PC. So much better than the random nature of the first game.
Very good game but how is this hot?!
How is it irrelevant? It's a comment relating to his opinion on the price, which is kind of the whole idea of this site. As a sarcastic jibe, your comment is vastly more irrelevant.
Would you. Thanks for your irrelevant comment.
If I was paying this price I'd expect it to include all 3 games
