Click with Nintendo Switch


Man, I really like a handheld console. The last handheld console I ever owned was the first Playstation Portable (PSP) and able to play a lot of illegal games. Sadly I decided to sell off because I need money badly and stick with PlayStation 2 games instead until no longer working. After that, I haven’t got any plan on buying new console system to play ever since. There is no space for any big TV LCD because my room is getting smaller with toys and LEGO around. The released of Nintendo Switch hardware really change and shock how well it responded to the gaming industry. Now I got it, what’s next?

The Games

First thing, of course, comes to mind there aren’t many great games right now. Both digital download and physical games (stupid tax in Brunei) are kind of expensive. Even I was in Singapore, there weren’t much luck finding discount on any shops discounting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It seems like I had to wait for sales and check the exchange rate to decide further from the eshop. Nintendo also continue to push the ported existing games into the market. I personally don’t see the point investing when you can get way cheaper existing games discount that already available in Steam.

The reason I brought Nintendo Switch because I wanted to play an old school RPG and the strategy games cannot be found on PC. Octopath Traveler is one of them, played the Prologue Demo and seriously got hooked until the 3 hours limit ended! I am now stuck with which version to go for. Should I get digital or aim for the physical ‘Wayfarer’s Edition’?

Pre-order haven’t open to public yet and the price is currently unknown in PA which we know they will mark up, thus giving more time to consider because the stuffs doesn’t include any art book, Vinyl Statue or any DLC downloadable contents. The site only provide details on the market price of US$99.00 and includes: Game cartridge, Octopath Traveler: Sound Selections CD, cloth double-sided world map, replica coin of the in-game currency, 8-page pop-up book featuring characters and origins. There weren’t much information if the Wayfarer’s Edition give any special in-game items can be use in the game. Since we continue get left in the dark about this, I decided to place my early pre-order for Valkyria Chronicles 4 - “Memoirs from Battle” premium edition open market price of US$99.99.

I read a lot of positive review about Valkyria Chronicles game 1-3 series and recommend the upcoming Valkyria Chronicles 4 - “Memoirs from Battle” to go for since it includes: 100-Page Artbook, The "HAFEN" Tank Vinyl Statue and two Add-on Side Missions (While supplies last.). The DLC in eShop are abit expensive so this is a good opportunity to take advantage on this collector deal. Although PA cost US$20.00 more than the market price, I manage to deduct the express shipping fee and US$10.00 using the unused free PA credit that I kept qutie a number of years.

Speaking about the DLC, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is getting new expansion pack called Torna The Golden Country and receive quite a numbers of update. The review also very positive, so I am interested jumping into this RPG game but there are no discount in Nintendo eShop even the bundle price didn’t get any single special discount. I am not going bother and pass on this one until Black Friday Sales.
