When you buy a game digitally (either with a credit card or a voucher code), the points are added directly to your Nintendo account at the time of purchase, which is why you can't redeem them from the home menu.

The rates are 1% physical, 5% digital, so you actually get more points digitally (although considering as they cost a billion times more, it's probably not enough points).
They cost the same amount as in the stores here....

I am starting to think it's just a UK thing, but it seems UK stores discount physical copies quite a bit.

I think Super Mario maker is something like 39 on Amazon (Physical) and 49 (digital)

If discount physical copies is a UK thing, then I guess I shouldn't complain, but y'know...

Got UA3 yesterday morning as well along with the Gamestop exclusive poster. Pretty fun so far. Controls and mechanics take a bit of getting used to, but beating the living crap out of enemies with such a wide and varied roster is great.

The story is passable. A fun Saturday morning cartoon. Its great for moving to different Marvel Universe locations as well.

A fantastic game that is a blast from the past. The difficulty spike from old games is still there so you cannot ignore the challenge rooms and just do the story.

Yeah, I appreciate that the game is just. A fun challenge. That Doctor Strange boss... whoo.

Also, I like how the story feels like a - as you put it - saturday morning cartoon much like the original one did. It's just a fun romp, even as much as I love the serialized story of UA2.

My first struggle was the monsters after Magneto. Ended up doing challenges to level up and grind resources to finally get past it.

side note number 2, if you'd had repairs done to them and you had to pay, you should call them up, they should be able to refund you.

So. New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe.


This... isnt a particularly good 2D Mario game. I have to say. I am not finding it enjoyable.

That's why I got it. It just doesnt feel right, especially when compared to the DS and 3DS versions.

Every stage is cluttered with hazards. Mario's vulnerability box feels like it's bigger than his model. Mario controls like he's on ice. The powerups are... weak.

I've ended up (mostly) enjoying Mario Odyssey more, and I never really enjoyed the 3D Marios.

got nintendo to refund me my joycon repair from last month. typically the refund should show up in 5 business days but it may take up to 2 billing cycles before the refund shows up. so call nintendo and ask for your refund. all you need is your name and email associated with the repair they charged you for.

No, but you may have better luck on the general video game thread perhaps.

https://www.RangerBoard.com/showthre...80677&page=175

I have a friend who's played a couple of the games, but while I've been curious I've never had the time to explore that series.

haven't played yet because I'm THIS close to finishing the Ace Attorney trilogy and want to knock that out first

I'm so fucking excited for Fire Emblem though. I haven't played since the last console games and I played those multiple times with different character combinations. Looking forward to playing this at least 3 times
