I think I remember them saying this too. I wouldn't expect a sale for a long while. There's no real need.

Problem is nothing this month interests me other than Street Fighter and I'm not buying that shit on principle at full price due to SFV being a cluster fuck and a half.

Thank you for also reading it as Rifstar instead of RiftStar :D

12 Minutes of gameplay from the GDC build with game designer commentary: http://uk.ign.com/videos/2017/03/22/...gameplay-video

it's a top-down space shooter with 4-player local+online co-op

20 really is the new 15. I mean, it's great to restore some value to the perception of video games but it really does make it harder to take some medium impulse plunges for me. Haven't bought a single Switch eShop game yet (also because cash is severely limited since that March 3 mega dump) since all the interesting stuff either desperately needs a patch (Swifty) or is all 20 bucks.

I said "otsukare samadeshita," which is an expression essentially meaning "thanks for your hard work" and is often said from one person to another after a workday or specific task is accomplished. :) My kanji knowledge is far from extensive, I just used the auto-included kanji for this expression from my keyboard. I hopefully know a couple hundred kanji at this point. I'm trying to focus more on grammar and vocal at the moment. :)

Nope €39.99 in EU. I just went for the US version instead @ $29.99.

It's published by Koch in EU, which is probably the reason for the difference.

Oh sweet, a demo version of Blaster Master Zero! & it looks like you can try part of the first & third area in the game. Plus I can download Gunvolt right now, though it creates an icon with the cloud icon next to the game basically saying "hey, you don't own the actual game".

Though why in the world is B the confirm button & A the cancel button?

Yeah, the controls seem awkward at first, and will take some getting used to.

So you can get the free DLC without owning the game yet?

Is the 3DS version ever going to have 3D? I'm already leaning toward Switch if I get the game but lack of 3D would be the nail in the coffin for the 3DS version.

Cross-buy would sure be nice though.

On Switch, yup, looks like you can. It'll just create the icon for the game on the home menu, but you can't actually select it (though interestingly, you can still go into options & update the game, which is super nice to have the game up to date when you finally buy it).

I would guess on 3DS, it's the usual "can't buy DLC unless you actually own the game & go into the in-game shop".

Does MBZ offer custom controls in the full game? I honestly got used to the controls for the most part, but it's just that weird swap of confirm/cancel, like I'm using the PS style buttons since X is on the bottom & O is on the right, but since A is on the right & B is on the bottom, it feels weird doing that on a Nintendo system)

I was like well yep this is Master Blaster all right. I mean I didn't dislike it, but I wasn't like I gotta go buy this.

About to go cop FAST RMX tonight I decided. Still debating on Kamiko. The idea and the screens say BUY but the GAF impressions say short and too easy.

Yes, I described above what happened when I nabbed the Gunvolt DLC for Blaster Master Zero. You'll just have the game icon on your system, but you can't launch it or redeem it for My Nintendo points, but you can update it to the latest firmware.

My guess is it would just be way too "generic" & you'd just have a cluster of people talking about 10 different games at once. Not to mention you might be separating people who might be playing the same game, but not on the same console.

Where as PSN, Xbox Live, & eShop are more focused & can have exclusive stuff not on other systems or physical releases.

Mega threads in general are frowned upon around here. They get very insular and news can get easily lost by those who stop checking them every day. That said, I think they probably could have let it go to 20k posts but what are you gonna do.
