I picked up Links Awakening last week too.

It's very Nintendo to re-release a 26 year old game with virtually no new content worth mentioning - bar the obvious graphical makeover - at full price, and still get rave reviews for it.

This months pickups so far, as always, its more stuff for my Capcom collection:
Image
Street Fighter Zero 3 for Matching Service - basically a Zero 3 re-release with online play, I will admit, despite owning many copies already this one was purchased for the awesome manual/cover art
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (International) - Its the same basic game we got over here, except in a nice slip case, comes with a really nice art/info book on the series and best of all, the Japanese version of SSF2X (so no more awful AI when playing it in single player mode)

Image
Biohazard Code Veronica Complete - aka CVX. I already have the standard CV on the DC but I wanted the version with more Wesker as well, just because.
Bounty Hunter Sarah - this one was cheap, it looks to be a adventure game, text based.
Kabu Trader Shun - Its part visual novel, part investment sim by the looks of things. I just had to get it for the strangeness.

Image
Iam8bits Mega Man X and MM2 "limited" edition re-releases. The packaging on both has some really awesome bonus fold out art (basically flaps like book covers fold out to show the Japanese box art). Its all really nice until you realise the MMX flap doesn't close properly due to how its designed (a baffling oversight). Not exactly copies I'll be playing but they are rather nice for the collection.

Image
Scary Rumors Hanako - An interactive adventure game, and from what I can tell its partially based on Japanese ghost stories/urban legends. Again, another weird and wonderful game to add to my collection
RE4-6 collection - Physical RE4 was a good enough reason but I really enjoyed how the demos for 5 and 6 played on the Switch and while neither will pull me away from my PS4 versions, its just super cool to have them to play on a handheld.

I bought a Switch last weekend as I've become too impatient waiting on info about whether the Panzer Dragoon Remake is going to be released for PS4.

So far, I've bought TT Racing, Attack on Titan 2, and the incredible Astral Chain. I have V Rally 4 en route as well as the handful of downloaded games I've accrued.

I've pretty much had to eat my words regarding the Switch. I'd previously written it off as a Wii with PS3 graphics, but I've bonded with it in ways not seen since the Saturn glory days.
Thoughts and prayers.

What Remains of Edith Finch (read many good things about it) and Plague Tale: Innocence (story-driven puzzle-action game). Both for PS4.

Both are excellent. Only issue I had with Plague Tale was some encounter design at the end of the game, but all in all it was a refreshingly fun game.
