No need to get aggressive. I haven't edited anything, which means it was either not wrong, or a moderator fixed.
Either way, next time you can be more helpful by specifically telling me how to fix without accusing me of editing and cheating.
Thanks Smilie

Similar to going to movies instead of buying the DVD?

But regardless, let's run through the math.

Current costs:

$30 digital (sale) /$0 resale /$30 net loss
$60 physical (no sale) / $30-45 resale (or less depending on when you resale) / $15-30 net loss (or more) + $time (post, ship, meet, etc, gas,). Time is certainly not worth $0 if thinking rationally.

So would u rather take a perceived $30 loss and enjoy a game, or would you like to pay more for a (maybe) smaller loss?

Your argument might make sense on a brand new game, and certainly if the physical is on sale, but it still has to pass a person's willingness to waste time on reselling for a limited gain. How much is your time worth?

There's also the ease of use of digital vs physical. Swapping cartridges is less convenient than digital, and especially if your switch stays docked. On the other hand, I like to let friends borrow my physical cartridges.


So in reality, thinking rational just means buy what's best overall for you based on what you find more important, not what's best for someone else.

Nice nice nice. I knew all it had to do was come out for PC and the Switch copy would drop. This game reminds me a lot of saga frontier 2.

Got such a backlog of switch games. Is it a good idea to add this to the long list?

Its a traditional not a strategy to start with. It compares closer to a fnal fantasy style entry for gameplay and difficulty.

Three houses is seriously brutal and I'm a long time Disgaea player. I had to go back to casual to learn how to make sure you don't lose guys because losing people for good is so frustrating.

I am surprised this game's price hasn't dropped much since released about 1.5yr ago.
Usually 3rd party games go on sale pretty fast, compared with Nintendo 1st part games.
