Yeah, I have it on Epic Games Store from when they gave it away, I literally don't need it. But EVERYTHING is better on Switch, so I'm very tempted :D

I thought Celeste was very good, for what that’s worth 👍🏽.

I got it. I immediately felt quite annoyed at myself. This is actually a weird feeling I've never felt when I've bought a game before. I think its because I only got Rocket League a couple of days ago. But it was only a fiver with points, I'd spend more than that on a McDonald's. So why do I feel so bad? Ugh, I don't like this feeling. It's a mixture of guilt and anger.

Stupid thread.

:cry:

I won’t think twice about paying £6.20 a pint in town, then I quibble over games I want when they’re £3.99 !!

Madness ain’t it 😄.

It's very weird yeah. I get the same feelings but I'd much rather be cautious than not.

I've been considering okami hd for about a year now but dont want to pay for it and then realise I wont play it properly

Yeah that's the thing. My Switch library is growing but I'm not playing the games. I keep thinking, 'it's on the Switch, I'll be able to play it much easier' but it doesn't work like that. I still only have the same amount of times to play games whether it's on Switch or anything else!

And don't be afraid to use the help mode. I used it on one level I couldn't get my head around and I got no strawberries but finished it and felt a sense of achievement.

Played a little Celeste back in January 2019. I had, more than a year before, tried (and failed) to play through SOMA for the podcast, and I guess was still stinging a bit from the reaction I had to the chase sequence in that game. When the first chase sequence happened in Celeste I turned it straight off.

I'm sure this won't be an issue for anyone else, and I only mention it here because I am going to give Celeste another go. (Yes, I just picked it up on Switch. Thanks for the heads up on this deal, hazeredmist!)

Believe Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey are free on iOS currently but hard to confirm because I already own them. These are the best of premium mobile gaming so definitely pick them up if you haven’t yet.

Old Man's Journey is £1.79 on Switch. A nice simple puzzle narrative that's a couple of hours long. (it's on Game Pass too)

There's a Square sale on Switch at the moment, too. Not many bargains to be honest, but FF7, 8 and 9 are all under a tenner.

For those with kids, Letterland games are free at the moment. They seem like decent apps to teach kids stuff
