Call of Juarez.

 

Is this the same as the last gen game?

 

Worth ¥2,000?

 

Gunslinger? It's a very cool game. Not massive but has a wicked narrative structure and I found it immense fun.

Gunslinger is really good but I don't know why it's quite a lot more expensive now than when it came out last gen. It was 1200 Microsoft points on the 360, about a tenner. 18 quid for a port of a last gen XBLA game is a rip off.

So many good looking games out recently and still to come. 
 

I am tempted by one of 

 

Alien, FM20 Touch. The Talos Principle or Call of Juarez 

 

That credit USA burning a hole in my pocket :lol:

Did it start at that price or was that after it had been on sale a while?

I had no idea until this morning but having been inspired to boot up Shovel Knight to play through the Plague Knight DLC, I've already got the new expansion and maybe even that fighting spinoff thing because I bought the Treasure Trove version when it was on sale. Fucking hell. I might never play either but respect to Yacht Club for how they've supported this thing,

Not really. Danger with saving them is they expire I believe. So keep an eye on that. 

 

Remember to claim the points from your physical games too.

Looks like all of the Data East games are $1.99 on the US eshop. 

 

Any scrolling beat em up fans should check out Night Slashers. 

 

Surprisingly there are a nice amount of display (scanline etc) options. 

 

Not sure on the accuracy of the emulation, though the sound deffo seems sketchy. Still, $1.99!!

I didn’t know you could do that! I assume most of them will have expired (Breath of the Wild at launch) but I bought Astral Chain this year - I assume that’s still valid at least.

I don’t think the points on the card expire (until you’ve redeemed them). They can only be redeemed once per card (so you may not get them if youve bought second hand). But it’s worth going through your cards and checking.

They do expire. Two years after release, IIRC. There was a lot of chat about it earlier in the year when the launch games hit the 2 years.

Seems a bit odd. Nintendo I guess. 


They’ve always expired. Even from back in the GameCube days.

What’s the best way to buy from the US eShop? It asked me for a zip code to calculate sales tax when I tried to purchase Night Slashers.

It doesn’t look like it. All of the DE games so far are under some “Johnny Turbo” branding. 

 

Side Pocket is referenced in that original “Heavy Burger” game they released. That’s about it.

Do you mean once they’ve been claimed from the gamecard?  Or do they expire even if they haven’t been claimed? 

 

Both.

 

The points on the card expire (in that you can't claim them) two years after the game's release date.

 

The points you've claimed expire (in that you can't "spend" them) one year after you've claimed them.

Thanks.  What a shame, I adored Side Pocket.
