Well I bought it on switch but its also on gamepass

its at least smooth on series X...it is way better 60FPS vs. 20

I realize their is massive power difference but surely the Switch could do 30FPS

I haven't played through that in years. I remember hating the boss battles because they all had great stuff to steal, but it was always the third item, so it felt like you had to spend the first 40 Zidane turns stealing to you got it.

Chocobo Hot and Cold, though... one of the most perfect minigames ever including the music. If you've played FFXIV, they redid the music played for that for a theme for the DNC job:

Damn it, think I need to get this. Any recommendations for a decent SD card? Pretty sure I'm out of space on the console so need some extra storage

I got this 2 years ago, flawless so far.

Strangely for technology, it has increased in price $1.23.

Anyone play any of the Sonic the Hedgehog games on the switch? My kid is into the Sonic movie all of a sudden and am wondering if the games are any good. I remember playing them on the Sega way back when, but I have no idea how they hold up today.

I've played so many mediocre to dreadful Sonic games the last two decades it's hard to remember which ones were good. Sonic Mania was a lot of fun - total throwback to the originals

Yep it’s Sonic Mania on Switch for sure, everything else is middling to bad.

I've looked at it seems like Littlewood or My Time at Portia could be options. Any other ideas? The less combat the better.

As in which model to buy or how to get a hold of them?

If you're playing in handheld I would get the OLED version no question. Otherwise the old Mario Kart bundle is on sale at various retailers (I see it in stock on amazon even now - $380). Finding the OLED might be a little tough right now? Not sure.

If you want to maximize, you could wait for a 20x the points event at Shoppers to buy it. Or if you have a ton of points already there is a $250 for $400 redemption coming up for Black Friday I think.

I scooped mine from Best Buy a few weeks ago - they seem to be getting stock here and there. There are shortages of the OLED version for sure, but it's nothing crazy like the Xbox or PS5. I don't think you'll have to look too hard to find one, but if you do find one in stock just buy it right away.

For Black Friday, there are lots of marked down Nintendo produced titles at Game Stop, $25 off. They are older, but still not a bad deal considering they almost never get marked down.
