So an update regarding the new prices of eShop games published by Nintendo in Sweden. Apparently games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have had their prices bumped up from €53 to €60, which makes sense. However, then we have games like Smash Ultimate and Breath of the Wild which have had their prices bumped up from €60 to almost €70. That's absolutely insane to me, but I guess some online stores are actually selling those games physically at that price. Oh and season passes like the one for BotW cost now an additional €0.8, lol.

In more positive news, apparently I was one of the players that won the latest Tetris 99 weekend event. I actually wasn't even deliberately playing the game for the sake of the event, I was just in the mood and so I managed to accumulate two tickets I believe (I had around 250 points) throughout the weekend. Apparently that was enough for me to win. I realised this when I saw that I had over 1000 gold points on my eShop account and the reward for winning the event was 999 gold points. So now I got €10 to spend on anything I'd like on the eShop, which is really sweet. This honestly made my day since I never win stuff like this.

@KratosMD Well done my man, it's always good to be rewarded for something you enjoy doing.

Those prices suck too! I always wait for sales to buy anything for my Switch, your gonna need something like double discounts to get those prices down to something reasonable though.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah it does indeed suck since Nintendo games are too expensive to begin with. At first I thought Nintendo was going to price their Switch games around €50 as a middle ground between console and handheld prices (€40 for 3DS games, €60 for Wii U games) since the system is a hybrid. That does not seem to be the case anymore now.

Well at least I got those bonus gold points to cover the increased costs.

@KratosMD Well done on the unexpected win. I would never win anything. Unless it is rage quitting Bloodborne DLC. I am doing well at that.

With regards to Nintendo pricing, to be honest, digital prices are horrendous and there are never really worthwhile price drops. My biggest annoyance though is 3DS prices. Apart from their Select titles, other games just don't drop in value, even second hand. Majora's Mask 3d is still over £30. Moan over.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@KratosMD I just remembered that BOTW was always €69.99 on Switch. I got a physical copy for the Wii U at launch for €50...

@Rudy_Manchego I dunno I think there has been some good sales in the UK eshop. I picked up Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Mario v Rabids for decent prices.

@JohnnyShoulder Sorry to clarify, I mainly mean first party. I haven't seen Donkey Kong drop much over £30 though I might have been unlucky.

@Rudy_Manchego Can't think how much I paid for it, but I may have used some points to bump the price down a bit.

Anyone else getting into Mario Maker 2 on the Switch? It’s great fun! Would be cool to swap some courses on here...

@Wesker I dunno, like Dreams I don't know if I have it in me to make stuff. I'd have loved it as a kid though. It does look good, though.

If Mario Maker 2 is like the original, 90% of the levels will be troll levels, gimmick levels, or poorly designed levels that spam enemies as a way of hiding the lack of skill on the creator's part.

I'm good. Three Houses launches in a month or so, so that'll be my next Nintendo-published game.

@Wesker I'm sure there will be plenty of level sharing on NL.

@Wesker been playing for hours now and it's so fun, some very very creative people out there. My kids are trying their hand at building courses and it's awesome to watch!

@kyleforrester87 I played Little Big Planet 1 and 2 a lot, but never created anything. It astounds me the amount of talent and creativity out there amongst gamers, and I love to see what they can come up with. I will buy Dreams day 1.

@redd214 I look forward to you sharing your kids’ creations. I will post mine when I can! It’s very inspiring!!!

@Ralizah the standard of the ‘hot’ and ‘popular’ courses are high at the moment in my opinion. I will check NL for sure, but I prefer the community over here.

@Wesker That's what I'm hearing. My nephew is also excited for it.

I decided to just go ahead and use one of my vouchers to download it. Might as well. I sold the Wii U version anyway.

As someone who is pretty terrible at creating levels, I'm really enjoying Mario Maker. The new features add so many new possibilities to the level design, and both the Story Mode and user-uploaded stages are very creative. I'd recommend the game to anyone who's a fan of 2D Mario, whether they intend to build stages or not.

The quality of the user-created content online so far is quite a bit higher in general than what I encountered in the first game.

On the other hand, building levels is a pain, no matter which mode you opt for. Say what you want about Nintendo's Fisher Price-esque GamePad, but the thing was perfect for Mario Maker.

@Ralizah I think that was why I loved Super Mario Maker so much; it was the perfect game for the Wii U hardware.

Creating on your pad, while others in the room could watch and discuss about the level design happening on the telly screen was just brilliant.
