    Where did you find Endless Ocean? It feels so out of place in the rest of the list. X3

    Oh yeah speaking of purchases I got some neon yellow joy cons, partially because I have wanted them and they were on sale (ish), but also I'm having Joycon Drift issues so the timing seemed decent enough.

    Half Price. One of the nearby stores is closing (building got bought out) so most of their stock is getting shipped to my local one, and I found it among some of the stuff they put out. I recently bought the sequel, since I realized that I don't have much in terms of nature walking sims. This one was in excellent condition too. Then I added Deadly Creatures back to my wants list... Back in the day, I was reallllly looking forward to it, and then I lost interest for some reason. Now I realized it would be fun to play again lol

    Damn, I had the same exact experience with Deadly Creatures. X3 I was really hyped before it came out after like E3 footage and a Nintendo Power preview, but then I just.... never got it. But I also added it to my list of Wii Wants a few months back. Saw it at Gamestop but it was disc only so I passed it by. Hopng to stumble on a complete copy sometime.

    Endless Ocean 1 is more of a fish cataloging Sim. X3 2 actually has a story structure with missions and combat (kinda), which is why a lot of people tend to prefer 1 in my experience. I love the series so I'm just happy to see someone else picking them up. Do you have Fishing Resort tho?

    Nah never did get Fishing Resort. The fishing part I've never been big into on games (although it was kinda fun in Ys 8, even though my hand hurt :x) but the scuba diving thing seemed nice and relaxing. I even have ABZU on backlog >_>

    I figured you might want Fishing Resort for the collectibility, since it is hard to find now. X3 But I can get not being into it. It is THE BEST fishing game though, and like an RPG which I like. It's like an RPG collectathon with fishing controls.

    Nothing fancy, but I picked up Blades of Time on the Switch.
    It's not exactly top tier, but the time mechanics are fun once you get the hang of them.

    It's not a sequel, it's a "spiritual successor". :p
    Haven't seen or heard of X-Blades on Switch... and honestly, I have no idea why they did this.

    I've read that the game crashes a lot, which I haven't noticed yet, though I've only made it to Chapter Two.
    I did notice though that the approximately 2 minute scene that plays at the start, the intro for the game that shows you who Ayumi's partner Zero is, and how exactly she makes her way to Dragonland is missing on the Switch.

    Well, my hunt for Decisive Edition is over! I won a copy in the XSEED Twitch Stream last night!!! :D

    Boy did that make me giddy as a school girl! Only thing though, I still havent heard back from them about give away information after messaging them on twitch. Does anyone know how long it generally takes them to respond about the give aways?

    I am so excited I won last night! x3

    I ordered two more of those HORI 24 Game Card Cases for my Switch off of Amazon.
    Sad to say, my existing set were, in a couple of cases, starting to get a bit cramped. Now they have a bit of room to breathe, grow... then spread out more, when I inevitably order more of these cases.

    Dear HORI,
    36 Game Card Case, when?

    I ordered Cold Steel II: Relentless on November 29th, but I got the notice that it just shipped today, so technically that's my most recent purchase since the payment just went through. Amazon.ca still lists the release date as May 28th...I think that's why I'm getting it so far ahead of the proper release date of June 4th. Which is lucky since before they were predicting I'd get the game on June 7th, and that's when things get a bit dicey around here, time-wise.

    I was gonna say - MY copy hasn't shipped yet! (not that I would mind too much even if it got delayed - still have a bit of CS1 to replay anyway).

    I would be wary of that @Kikki hopefully its the right item, idk i always get nervous when things like that happen even if it is early. In contrast, the Decisive Edition I won from the stream should be here this week :D

    I've been shopping on amazon.ca for 16 years and have never gotten even one wrong item, so I'm not too worried about that, but I guess we'll see. I think it's simply because they still have the wrong date in their system. It's exactly the time I'd expect them to ship if the release date really WERE May 28th. And amazon.com and amazon.ca always seem to get their stock in at different times. Amazon.ca is usually later if there's a difference, but sometimes we get lucky.

    I should be able to tell you if you were right on Wednesday, though. :) Congrats on your win!

    I'm going to go now and replay the final battle of CSI, just to refresh the sense of urgency it always leaves me with, to put me in the mood for CS II. My brain is currently stuck in My Time at Portia-mode and I need a little boot to get out of it.

    That is the one I have too. I probably woulda preferred a soft one, I always feel like I am hurting thecarts taking them in and out. X3

    I only have one, about 14 spots left open. 12 slots in my carrying case taken, and one cart in my Switch. Also I think Yoshi is still in it's case.


    Ordered myself some cute CC2 merch from Amazon.jp, will take pic when they arrive. X3

    Yeah US amazon says the 4th, CA amazon says the 28th... OOPS! I guess they just never updated it and some are slipping out early, lucky.
