Just FYI - Buyer Beware on these big sales on the eShop. I have to remind my kids all the time that most of these cheap games are no better than a mobile game ported to switch.

I wish we could permanently hide games in the eShop. It's futile browsing the eShop when there's so much shovelware.

Yeah it's like getting off the first page on Steam. 99% utter garbage.

I used to love mutant league football for the genesis. Looks like this is a reboot. I would bite for a dollar

10 is the lowest I've seen on any system for digital, little cheaper for used physical, but it is a real game so I think this might be its bottom price.

Go to dekugames for actual switch deals. There are some really great ones, including <$5. These aren't them though.

Elemental Knights R seemed like a great deal at $0.75 (from $22.75), but then I read someone's review of the game on Reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/eShopper...ch_review/

Their summary - "Elemental Knights R is an MMORPG that's free to play on mobile devices, but costs $20+ on the Switch, yet is still loaded with microtransactions. On top of this, it's a lazy port of a terrible game, that only has a duct-taped-together control scheme for players who want to play this on a controller instead of a touchscreen. Oh, also, this game has what is possibly the worst localization I have ever encountered, and damn near every sentence is filled with unintelligible broken English. Do not buy this game."

I thought elemental knights looked pretty interesting based on screenshots.. until I read the reviews as well.
it's a pay to win type game.. except it costs money on the switch. It would have been pretty cool if the entire game isn't so functionally broken and microtransaction dependent.

Sadly I didn't look at the reviews and thought it looked cute. Oh well at least I'm only out less than a buck. That'll teach me.

Brace yourself, because it's apparently only going to get worse. They're at the point of selling straight asset flips on the eShop:

"The Bullet: Time of Revenge is a dynamic shooter in which one men must face a lot of bunch of bad guys."

First time I've seen a game where it is 1 vs many. I'm glad they were the first to think of this and to give such a detailed explanation of the game.

Thoughts on Almost There? It looks like a very simplified version of something like super meat boy.
