Curve Digital sale on the eShop right now.  Lone Survivor, Nova-111, OlliOlli, Pumped BMX+, The Swapper, and Thomas Was Alone for WiiU and OlliOlli and Titan Attacks! for 3DS are all on sale for $1 until 7/22.  Not only that but you get gold My Nintendo coins based on the regular price, so if there's anything available on My Nintendo that you want, this sale is a steal.

Hey Canada
Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS) is on sale right now at both Amazon.ca and BestBuy.ca for $29.99 (down from $49.99)
Best Buy says their sale ends Sept 8. Amazon's price will probably end then too, if not earlier.

damn, I've been waiting for a discount on Yo-Kai Watch. I really want to play it. But I also wanted it digital on my system. And DQVII is coming out in a little over a week. So I might have to pass on Yo-Kai right now but I may regret that later.
Too Many Games.

The Fire Emblem Fates deal interests me. It's almost a 2 games for one price which is what I was kind of waiting for on that once I was unable to come close to securing the special edition all-the-games-in-one bundle.

Amazon also has a pretty appealing price for SEGA 3D Classics Collection right now, at $25 CAD.
Probably more niche appeal than some of the others listed, but a bargain if this is your type of game.

Ugh... I want this one.  Keen on getting the game, and even though I'd rather own on console it sounds like this version is actually the better purchase?  It does seem like a good price, especially with so many games being more expensive in Canada lately.


Sadly, my budget just doesn't support it right now after being on a game buying binge recently (and with the latest Dragon Quest 3DS remake coming soon via preorder). On the upside, I'm still putting off a New 3DS purchase even though my 3DS XL hinge has officially busted. Not buying this game makes that delay even easier.

I'm still bitter about missing the all-in-one cart. Getting content via DLC isn't the end of the world, but having everything on a cart properly would have been HUGELY preferable for me and I was willing to pay for that privilege... just not given any opportunity outside of paying huge markup to second-hand scalpers.

Remember, it's cheaper and easier to just buy one and download the other two if it comes to it.

$30 is an amazing deal for Fire Emblem Fates in Canada. I'm actually a bit surprised to see them hit that price in a sale so quickly.

I wouldn't call this an amazing deal per se, but there's a game that is honest-to-god free on the North American eShop right now: The First Skunk Bundle.

Claiming this (and then cancelling the download) will give 30 My Nintendo gold coins, which can be cashed in toward an actual good game like noted AM2R demake Metroid 2: Return of Samus (the best Metroid game ever).

People are still unsure if Bethesda made a game that will actually release on the Switch.
so No, we don't. It's a gamble, but I'm sure you'll be able to use a 200GB microSD card somewhere else if necessary

If you have a microSD card you could always stick it in an adaptor if it uses the regular size cards.

Pretty good idea if the big multiplayer games (Smash, Kart, Splatoon) are all coming out in the launch window.

Amazon Canada has a few deals today:

Twilight Princess Wii U with Wolf Link Amiibo is on sale for $49.99.

Star Fox Zero (With Star Fox Guard, I'm assuming based on the picture) is on sale for $44.99.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is on sale for $34.99.

Mario Tennis Ultra Smash is on sale for $34.99. (Although going by the reviews of this game, I'm not sure it is worth it even at that price.)

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE already sold out on Amazon.ca but still available at BestBuy.ca

But it is one penny short of qualifying for free shipping and there is nothing else I want to buy and I'm not paying an additional $11 just for shipping. Probably gonna give it a pass.

This game will come to Switch anyway, right  ;)

Buy a pack of gum or some batteries maybe. For myself, I decided to take the gamble on Tokyo Mirage Sessions at that price plus the lowering of Star Fox Zero was an acceptable price threshold I was willing to take it as well so my shipping was covered that way. I would have loved to see it $5.00 less and into the $30's range since I doubt it will ever get to the $23.00 price like lolmonade posted it did for the US earlier. Still, for being that close and the savings from the reduced TMS, I decided to pull the trigger on them both.

At this point, the only major Wii U games I'm looking to add to my collection are Paper Mario Color Splash and Zelda: BotW. There are others I'm on the lookout for like Sonic: Lost World, Game & Wario or Ducktales Remastered, for instance. If I acquire them at a good price, great. If not, I'm not going to be regret it. Plenty of other stuff I still should and could play anyways.
