XCOM 2 (digital only) Nintendo Switch $19.99

Nintendo's Cyber Sale is ongoing for their Digital Store. A good amount are repetitive sales or you can do better with the hard copies like Burnout, but...

XCOM 2 is on sale for $19.99, which is the lowest I've seen it for the Switch. It isn't the perfect port, but it is still a great game on the Switch.

It is very good on the Switch. but It isn't perfect. Mission load times aren't crazy in duration.

There can be a little lag on the rescue missions when the aliens start killing the civilians. Sometimes the aliens suffer from brain damage and make inexplicably bad decisions, but in your favor (this wasn't very common). And on the base ship, sometimes announcements can overlap. These are nitpicks and overall, I enjoyed it a lot on the Switch.

Great game! I guess it did not do well seeing as how the price dropped so quickly. I bought it at launch for $50, I think.

did you buy the physical at launch? was wondering if the physical was an actual cartridge or a download code?

is there any benefit to digital besides not having to drive to the store? I always prefer physical copies.

The game doesn't come close to fitting on the cartridge, so there will be notable downloading still. (20 or so GB I think).

I too bought this immediately on release. I rarely do that, but wanted to play it.

I don't mind going to the store, I just prefer digital over physical.
