    Collection of Mana for $20?! That is a good price. I think I will go pick it up since I finished the main story of Ys VIII today.

    I already picked up both Final Fantasy X and The Zodiac Age when they were on sale for like $35.

    Supposedly Mario Odyssey is going to be $30 on Friday. I'm going to buy it if that is true.

    Well poop, Target ran out of copies of Mario Odyssey when I got there, so I guess it's back to the waiting board for me on that one.

    Isn’t it on sale on the Nintendo shop? It’s also available in a lot of places for $40. Is the extra $10 a huge deal?

    I don't do digital copies.

    I didn't notice other places had it for $40, but honestly, yes, that $10 is a big deal right now since we're on a budget. I guess if we have the chance to go to whomever has it for $40, I'll take a look to see if they still have copies today, but it's not really that big of a deal. It's not like I'm going to have time to play it for another month or so anyway. Hopefully it will go on sale again before then or someone will do a Buy 2Get 1 Free deal.

    I went on my trip and decided not to bring my Switch or 3DS. Good thing too, because even though the plane ride was 5+ hours one way, I had a 13 month old that kept me occupied. The plane ride to Cali was good, the return trip, not so good, but I think I’ll post this story in the Theme Park thread.

    Anyway, when I got home, and I finished Dragon Quest XI’s post game storyline. Great game! Now I got Pokémon or Witcher standing by.

    My wife’s Black Friday shopping at the moment and I requested Bloodstained and Final Fantasy X/X-2. $45 together. We’ll see if that’s added to my collection. Also, I see Ori and the Blind Forrest on sale in the e-shop. I might pick that up too. Yeah, so much for Witcher3 and Pokémon Sword being my last games this year.

    Huh. Cool.
    I wonder what else they might add in future updates or DLC...

    Apparently there's a rumor going around about a Super Metroid remake for the Switch. As with all rumors, I take it with a grain of salt (or the whole shaker), in this case because Sakamoto previously said that he had no plans for more remakes. Guess the relative of success of Samus Returns could have changed his tune, but still...

    I'm thinking of getting my two oldest daughters Switches for Christmas. Is there any kind of family sharing plan for digitally downloaded games?

    There's the family package for Nintendo Switch Online, which costs £31.49 per year, and can be shared between 8 people. It should allow the family to play NES and SNES games on their own Switches.

    You can also share digital games with each other, although there are some pros and cons:

    The playable Link thing is kinda cool, but I'm still hoping for an actual Zelda Maker game eventually.

    You can create a profile on the second Switch and link that account to the Nintendo account that purchased the game.

    You can read some more info here (Nintendo Switch Now Supports Digital Game Sharing, But There's A Catch)
