I do spend *far* more time reading, watching, drawing and chatting about games than actually playing them :fp: :oops: .

VVVVVV is launching in the eShop on Thursday. It is one of my favourite games on 3DS - I even completed it! - but I am tempted to get it again. It is brilliant and infuriating... I kinda feel that I want to go through it again, but then I remember Veni, Vidi, Vici :dread: :dread: :dread: .

This week: LA Noire, Rocket League, VVVVVV, Rive, Skyrim and Rime... and about five other indie titles. Switch has too many gaems.

Anyone had any experience using something like Revolut to purchase this way? My bank usually adds a good few quid on in foreign transaction fees so it tends to negate the benefit...

EDIT: asking as I've noticed that Stardew Valley is only about £6 from the Mexican store!


I think you've got to set up a Nintendo account for every store you want to purchase from and then keep those accounts on the Switch. Or you might just be able to swap region in one Nintendo account

Just a case of switching regions on your Nintendo Account through your web browser, buying the game via the Switch's eShop, then switching back. I did it for Sonic Mania which was £9-odd on the Russian eShop when it released. Only trouble is the language also changes so good idea to trial run a purchase then switch regions so you know what your clicking on.

Cool thanks for this - do I have to log out and back in on my Switch or will it detect the region change automatically?

From what I remember it detects it automatically when you connect to the store via the Switch.

Yeah, it detects the change at the store and will ask you to sign in again

Just a quick request, can anyone put in the GRcade Switch sig in code? So I can put it in my signature and my mobile app won't even let me highlight images and download them so I can't just get my own code...

Would like the sig thing, haha

It’s meant to be out tomorrow, although I haven’t seen it pop up in the eShop listings yet. I hope it is :toot: .

I'll be holding off on Rocket League till at least after Christmas I think.

I already have two copies of it and this month will see me double dipping on both Doom (Switch) and Skyrim (VR).

Check out some of our stuff!

I saw the Rocket League pull-back cars in GAME yesterday. They're super cool and I really wanted to buy one.

But £9.99

For a toy pull-back car

In a blind pack

(and that's not even that much of an inflated price on buying online)

It's advertised in the eShop now:

> Releases tomorrow, Tuesday 14 November
> Cost is £15.04 ( :? )
> Storage space required is 4.8 Gb
> Switch version has exclusive Mario, Luigi and Samus cars :)

I've only played Rocket League for about ten minutes at a friends place... I'm looking forward to trying it out online with GRcadians (Switch, PC and XBO cross-play)!

Edit: Sixteen (16!) games are being released in the eShop between tomorrow and Friday :o . Switch has no gaems! etc :toot: .

I'm very tempted by Rocket League. I already play far too much of it on PS4; being able to play in bed might be the end of me.

But with crossplay you can play with everyone so you need to get it.
