    Romance games for women are huge on Mobile in China, was reading a while ago that the most popular one has done over 10 million and that companies are spending big on more games for women in general because of how quickly that market is expanding. Trying to get some of that stuff into the western market is a pretty solid idea as companies in this half of the world are barely doing anything to expand that potential customer base beyond the ladies that want to play stuff that's already being made anyway.

    Ebay:
    Moved up to a 400GB micro SD card. Seems like no matter what size memory card, it'll never just be "more than enough". I bought a 256GB the other day, but it turned out to be a fake. Stupid me was quick to pull the trigger at $30 without checking the who the seller was on Amazon. Was gonna try again for a legit (shipped and sold by Amazon) 256GB for $40, but opted for the $53 400GB. The process of downloading all my digital purchases started last night, but it was taking way too long when transferring files from computer to card. Switch didn't even recognize the card, probably because not all files were transferred over. Redownloading from the eShop was faster.
    Anyways, picked up the FFX/X-2 bundle the other day when it was $25 on Amazon. Wish this had a reversible cover so Yuna was right side up or at least an X-2 cover. I'll be playing X-2 first when I get around to playing these. Didn't seem that long ago when I completed FFX on the Vita and I never got around to replaying X-2 before selling it off.
    Thought about grabbing FF12 for $25 as well, but I'll just hold off a bit more.

    Nintendo no! Don't go down this path! Please don't put paid dlc in the main game Nintendo! (right now it's the camp phone game but lets hope it stays away from the switch game!)

    I picked up both Pokémon Sword and Shield. One for me, the other for my nephew for Christmas. I don’t know which one I want, so I continued playing Dragon Quest XI, which just crossed the 100 hour mark.

    Huh. I think that's the first time I've seen Dragalia Lost mentioned on this site. And it's only because of the Mega Man crossover. *searches* Yep, didn't find a single mention of it in the video game board.

    For those who don't know, Dragalia Lost is Nintendo's original IP for a mobile game (developed by Cygames). It's an action RPG of sorts and despite the "gacha" nature of it, it seems to be considered one of the more generous (relatively speaking) ones as far as being free-to-play friendly. There's no competitive aspect to it (except for a recently released time attack ranking for some of the most difficult content) so there's not a huge incentive to become a "whale" in that regard. Arguably the best reason to spend money on the game is when every few months they have a "dream summon" event where you can basically buy a unit of your choice (barring certain limited units, such as those from the Fire Emblem crossover earlier this year).

    Relevant to the video posted, Mega Man will be a free unit available for playing during the event. If it's anything like literally every other free event unit in the game, you'll get him "temporarily" for the event and all you have to do to have him as a permanent addition is play enough quests during the roughly two weeks the event is running with him as a unit in your party.

    Ebay:
    Best Buy started their Black Friday early access sale for today only. Gott be a member (free) to see the prices.
    Only picked up Kingdom Hearts 3 for $15 for the Xbox One.
    Not sure what to get for the Switch though. Originally was looking at Collection of Mana ($20) and Assassin's Creed 3 ($15), but now I'm looking at AC3 and Friday the 13th ($20).
    Maybe I'll pull the trigger on Friday the 13th. IDK about AC3 though. I played it on the 360 back when it came out. Comes with AC3 Liberation, which I haven't play, but don't care for.

    Anybody know if there are any issues with the Switch version of the Spyro collection (besides being only partly on the card)? I was thinking about getting it for the Switch, but if there are any major problems then I might get it on PC instead.

    just got charged for that FFVII/VIII dual pack from Playasia. Soon I’ll have FFVII in a cartridge
    That Yugioh game and Rayman sound really tempting

    Anyone know if the RE Triple Pack will be on sale anywhere? I’d only play 4, but I’d still like to get it for a lower price
