Very nice selection of games!

I'm in the same boat as you: it's not that I have a huge backlog, but it's filled with loooong JRPGs. I'll need a few months to deal with FFX, FFX-2, Tales of Vesperia, Dragon's Dogma and Fire Emblem Three Houses. Oh, I also won Okami HD from Giftbot...

I’m really annoyed. Wanted to get Rocket League for $10 and I was waiting until tonight and to open the new Christmas switch for the kids and buy it...of course it went off sale back to $20.

Cyber Deals are over in EU, ended on a sunday lolwhut? Unless they have a special Cyber Monday tomorrow (well today since it's past midnight), that seems incredibly tone-deaf :D

edit: or not, just some deals are over (the stuff on my wishlist like Bloodstained isnt on sale anymore) but several others still are.

In case anyone else is a densha otaku like me there was a video-based rail sim game that released this past week in the Japan eShop and I’ve really been enjoying it. I know it released in the US for 3DS previously but this version includes higher-res video, HD rumble added (pretty neat IMO). I’d love to see a new Densha de Go game but I’ll take what I can get for now - I’ve been waiting for a rail sim on Switch since it released! Thankfully it supports english throughout so I’d expect it to be released in english territories sometime.

Another oddity released in Japan eShop last week is a paper-based puzzle game where you have to print out a puzzle on real paper for each of 20 or so puzzles. Full english support as well. Haven’t gotten into it yet but if anyone is interested I’ll try and follow-up with impressions.

You seem to be "in check!"
BotW, Celeste... these are good can't-miss titles. Any other on-sale games in that category?
(question for the chat at large, I guess)

I've got:

Sundered
The Touryst (not on sale but couldn't resist)
Gris
Super bomberman R (very disappointed, came expecting some cool throwback to the SNES games and got a mess of a game...)

This is my first black Friday with Nintendo's eShop (bought my switch last January), are discounts always so... Not good... Like this?

Was expecting like, all games 50% off and some 70, 80% etc... Specially since games on the eShop don't seen to drop in prices ever (normal price drops, not sales)

Finished The Touryst earlier.

I would say I enjoyed it for the most part, there were a few really irritating niggles, and I wish they did a bit more with the monuments, or at least made them longer.

But the game really oozes charm and personality.
The Touryst is my GotY. I haven't played a game this enjoyable since Hollow Knight. Absolutely adored it. And I got 100% completion!

Re: Heroland

I had a friend pick up a physical copy of Work x Work for me from Japan earlier this year (because it was a bit of a bomb, it is super cheap new, something like 10 euro equivalent), planning to fire it up once Heroland is out to see if it is the same universal SKU and will update for English. I will report here some point after release. Might be a good way for people to pick it up cheaper if you can get a copy from Japan.
That's a great idea. It's dirt cheap in play-asia right now, but only for cyber monday. I don't know if I should buy it hoping for the universal SKU.

A heads up - I just finished 55 hours of Vampyr (I am both a completionist and leisurely player, HLTB has it at much less...) and really enjoyed my time with the game. It's an RPG where your actions have consequences, the constant dilemma in the background is if to kill some of the NPCs, some of whom you like and some have simply not done anything wrong (drinking their blood will make you advance faster) or not. Killing someone has game consequences (not only to the neighborhood's health but also as far as the people affected by those you killed, and these always exist), same as not killing... For me it was one of those "when will I have time to play more" kind of game, as opposed to "ok, I has a good time but when is this game going to end" kind of game. Performance could be better, but it does not hurt anything, the game looks good to me and from what I read I suspect it is not much different than the game's performance on other platforms. Good and engaging story, many interesting side characters/stories, great voice acting. Did not play on easiest of settings, regretted it a few times (I'm not the best at fighting but suspect others might find my setting easy as well) but in the end I managed

The Eu cards don’t work in the UK do they?
The Euro currency cards only work in Euro countries. The game cards should work across Europe region though incl UK, assuming they're multilingual. Instant Gaming doesn't seem to state either way on their descriptions though so don't take my word for it.

Ah yeah I’ve used instant gaming for 3DS games before, just not currency cards. Thanks for coming back to me though!

Same market but different currencies, UK isn't different of Australia or Sweden. So, probably it doesn't work.
Game digital card works, but currency card isn't.

If you haven't already played this amazing game, then bloody well do it!

Once this sale gets around to the Switch (as they said it will), I will add it to my backlog. Having played the demo at the time, imo it is worth the full price - had I not had such a backlog I would have already bought the game, it's just that I am tired of seeing games I have in my backlog that I bought at full or near to full price getting cheaper and cheaper while I haven't gotten around to playing them yet. 50% for this game I can live with though even if I end up playing it only in a few month's time.

So... I finally did it. For those of you that remember me from the old site's eShop threads. Finally got a release date for my Wii U eShop game I've been working for 3+ years (not counting the multiple year gaps). Wii U is still the main Nintendo console right? Switch who!

Silly jokes aside, I actually ended up releasing the game in EU/AU regions about 2 years ago but was never able to get it out in North America. Mainly due to lotcheck issues, and then I was getting Married, etc. So things got busy and time kept going by. Last year I tried to get back on this, but then I suffered from a Herniated disk in my spine... So that took like 6+ months of my life and wasn't quite ready to start coding again.

But all this time, even with Wii U being super outdated, I always regretted never getting it out for the Wii U. So a few months back, I sought out to see if I can get it released for the Wii U. After a few trial and errors, finally got it approved for release for December 25th (Wed.) Even if it only sells 1 copy (that copy being bought by me), I'll honestly be happy and at peace.

My backlog is embarrassingly large, but there are a couple games still on eshop sale that I am considering picking up. I have been waiting on Slay the Spire's price to dip since it came out and, after waiting so long, idk if the $5 off is enough for me to bite. Fantasy Strike and Wolfenstein Youngblood are also calling out from my wishlist lol

So far just picked up the SNK 40th Collection (kinda salty though, after seeing it's $10 cheaper on Steam), will probably pick up Turok before the sale is over, and maybe Banner Saga? $5 seems like a steal for it.

It still makes me mad that the way they released Dragon Marked for Death (or failed to put their DLC on sale), I can't buy the two characters I'm missing on sale.

So the Atelier series... correct me if I'm wrong, but it's got fan service, right? I don't even remember playing the earlier games (though I know I bought a couple) but I'm looking for a game my daughter would like, but how... pervy is it?

Super Chariot is still on sale on the EU for an insanely low price (95% off). If someone needs a solid 2-player coop game for almost nothing, this game is it.

I am reasonably certain all except the last one don't have any fan service at all.

And I am under the impression (someone should correct me if I am wrong) that even the latest one has only mild fan service (as in the outfit of the main character that you see on the game cover, plus a few others), and is not pervy at all unless you consider the thighs design as pervy and not fit for your daughter to play.

A quick Google brought up this (this is for the latest game):
"In the first place, it’s arguable that the only thing fanservicey about Ryza is her design itself. The game hardly draws attention to her physical qualities (apart from some stills) in the in-game cutscenes, and this is because Atelier Ryza focuses on the inner qualities of her character first and foremost. "
