Skyrim is half price (£24.99) and worth every penny. You might want to invest in pile treatments though, given how many hours you'll be spending playing it on the toilet.

 

Coming off the back of Elden Ring its clearly a different kettle of RPG - but it plays smoothly and looks wonderful (especially on an OLED Switch).

I've never played a Dragon Quest game and saw XI is on sale.

 

I've got an Xbox though and I think it's on Game Pass? Is there the benefit of one over the other minus the portability?

It's a bit complicated as the switch version has quite a few extra features over the *original* last gen console version but obviously weaker graphics - but the current version on the other systems is just a port of that switch version. So, no.

I prefer JRPGs on handheld. I don't think DQ XI is too grindy, but there are bits where you just have to work through where you could be sat on the sofa with crap on telly, and then do the big story bits on the big screen.

So in the sale so far I’ve picked up Scott Pilgrim, Sonic Mania, Civ VI and SF Anniversary Collection. All for a total of around £25ish (I used the SwitchUp discount code to get 10% off £25 credit, and had to pay an extra couple of quid to get SF).

Here endeth the PSA.

I haven’t heard of this before, but a quick look on YouTube and yes, I’m now £7.19 worse off. It looks incredible!

How does Civ VI play on the Switch?  I have it on my iPad, and possibly on Mac too actually, but wouldn't mind a big screen version while it's on sale if it runs ok.

I haven’t played it yet, but reviews were positive. I have it on PC but love the idea of it handheld in bed or out in my hammock on a sunny day!

I'm having this dilemma now. I do think that the handheld format would be better for an hour or so of random battles whilst the TV is on, but I am loath to spend £25 when I've got it for "free" on Gamepass. 

 

It'd also be 60fps as opposed to 30fps too (providing you have a Series X not S). 

 

Still, I'm getting tempted by the Switch version. I can justify 80 hours easier in handheld these days, whereas on the TV I don't seem to get that time to sit down and play so intensely. 

 

There is a free Switch demo if I remember correctly, and you get to keep your progress if you do purchase the game (I think).

Yeah that’s right, and the demo is like 11 hrs long too or something crazy.

It's okay. The downsides are low resolution/large UI makes it feel cramped even when playing on the TV, and as you progress the loading times between turns gets quite long. 

 

Upsides are you can play it on the couch/toilet.

I’ve resolved myself to buying a ‘premium’ Nintendo game in this sale. Trouble is I can’t decide between the Bayonetta bundle or Skyward Sword.

 

Skyward Sword is one of only a handful of Zeldas I haven’t played (Twilight Princess and the GBA ones being the others). I played (and loved) Bayonetta 1 on the 360 many moons ago and have always wanted to give the sequel a go.


I play the Switch pretty much exclusively handheld - does anyone care to take all this background info and make my decision for me?

It’s great. They’ve tweaked the UI for the Switch too.

Yeah try out the demo as it’s the first 10 hours or so if the game, that should then give you a better idea 1) that you actually enjoy it and want to play another 90 hours of it and 2)whether handheld is worth it to you.

 

I played through the Switch version in both modes and absolutely loved it, it’s possibly the greatest entry in one of my favourite series.

Is Huntdown a difficult game? 

 

 

I got to a bit where I just could not get past a few awkwardly placed enemies so stopped playing (and that was relatively early on) which was a shame as it is very good. Just that one really tricky placement killed it for me but, until then, it had not been too hard. I might try again later actually...

Are there any cheap hidden gems in the sale that I can recommend my daughter gets for my 4 and 5 year old grandchildren?


Spyro the Dragon, maybe? Perfect for kids.

 

EDIT: Oh wait, that’s not exactly a hidden gem. Hmm.
