Looks like one of the big Black Friday sale items in regards to the Switch is multiple retailers like Amazon and Argos getting rid of the Labo sets, with 2 of them as low as £14.99 and the first one for £26.99, while the VR one sits at £33-ish.

Better than their original prices I guess?

I mean company's like capcom,namco ,sega, konami, are not really making games for consoles anymore. What i really mean is 90% of games on switch are not very good and there is 2000 of them . I bought bit trip saga for 3DS for €10 and it is really very bad,

Is that a joke or are you trolling?

Just in case you're being serious, I'd ask simply that you reconsider what you posted and maybe have a think about just some of the big titles that came out recently.

you must have some of the best experience with computer games . I followed gamecube had nearly all 700 games had wii and had nearly all the games had GBA and all the games these consoles where brilliant. I counted about 25 games that are brilliant and that's it ( on switch and 3DS). I saw a thread on another site that said people who have no money should not play computer games. I have money but I got so many disappointments with buying some games I nearly gave up playing. I think the company's like ATARI AND SEGA said they would be back with consoles sometime. I see ATARI are planing a console maybe they'll start making great games again.

Street fighters/Resi/DMC
Ace Combat 7/Tekken
Sonic <Insert name> among other things
You got me on the last one

90% is a high number, it's more like 60%, but the same number applies for other machines

Not to mention the crazy number of sales each Monster Hunter game gets in its homeland for Capcom.

The Yakuza series for SEGA too, who are also releasing a new Streets of Rage and Sakura Wars game as well.

If you're referring to the number of ports the Switch gets, remember for some younger gamers its their first time trying a lot of these games out or the selling port of portability is just too tempting enough to rebuy again for some gamers who either really liked said game or missed it out entirely the first time round. Now you can fit games from 5-10 years ago and more around your lunch break, train journeys and so on. No good telling the kids to "buy the original system" if they just want a easy way to play said without buying a old 2nd hand retro console and getting the best picture on their modern TV.

Something like Resident Evil 4 for example is not a bad game because its ported to so many systems. Yes, its overpriced on the Switch, but maybe there's a reason Capcom port it so much.

I started a thread a little while back about they're being too many worthwhile games so I can't agree at all. My backlog is insane and I only play Nintendo consoles.

Your mistake is putting your faith in the likes of Sega and Atari. Sure they'll produce the odd gem now and again, but even collectively they're not going to deliver the 100s of brilliant games you seem to require. There's dozens and dozens of great games on 3DS and Switch, who makes them doesn't matter, but Nintendo published games are usually a good place to start. That's not to say there aren't great third party games because there absolutely is, the best of the indy offerings alone could probably last you the rest of the generation.

Are you sure you're casting a wide enough net? Are you basing your opinion of the availability of good games on whatever your local retail shops happen to have in stock? If so go to the Nintendo World Report website, go to
"Reviews", go to "System", select Switch or 3DS, then select all games (the default setting is Recent), then list the games by score and truly get aquainted with the best of what's out there. :)

The heck is this about Capcom not releasing games anymore? Resident Evil 7, Remake 2, Mega Man 11, Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5 are all fantastic, and I personally loved Street Fighter 5 as well (now that its got much more content). Plus they've released tons of current gen ports (many of which are on Switch, including DMC3 which is coming in February. Likewise Sega has been rocking several releases on both console and PC (the PC market especially is pretty great for them these days), meanwhile console wise Yakuza 7 is coming out in January (in Japan). Guess the only thing you can complain about is the fact that many of these games are not on Switch.

Anyway, back to Switch purchases - I grabbed Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Groove Coaster and with the left over coins, Katamari Damachi for £4. Yooka Laylee is absolutely amazing, its basically Donkey Kong Country in all but name and characters. Its seriously one of the best platformers I've played all year. Groove Coaster likewise is a super solid rhythm action game, closest thing I'm getting to DJMax for now, lots of tunes and tons of challenge. Katamari I've not played yet, I've played the PS2 version but its more convenient to play it on Switch, so that's nice!

Just noticed Super Chariot is just 89p in the current e-shop sale.

I briefly tried the demo which was ok, so I thought it's probably worth picking up. At that price it's surely worth giving the demo a look, especially for anyone who regularly plays co-op.

OK, I finally buckled and purchased a new Switch (with a Labo thing) for £248 direct from Nintendo. Not ordered any games yet - this will mainly be for the family BUT I do expect to get plenty of time on it after bed time ;)

SO - for the kids (girl 10 and Boy 14 - he plays plenty of nasty gun game already and I'm probably a bad father but he's shown no signs of wanting to kill anyone yet)
and
For ME - love racing games but hate mariokart. Obviously love retro. Will patently wait along with my son for a new Pikmin game.

AND it won't be opend until Xmas day :(

You may want to open it just to get all the set up and updates out of the way, then you can dive straight into the games on Christmas Day.
