    Anyway, on a happier note, I bought my first game!

    I got Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze at Tesco. They'd sent me a 6 off 40 groceries voucher so I used that, plus an about-to-expire 2 voucher lurking in my wallet so it cost me 32 which I thought was reasonable. I didn't have a WiiU so it's new to me.

    @Phattso take me off the zero pile and add me to the 1 purchase shit-list please. :)
    Welcome to the club! Now we can stop regarding you with suspicion. ;)

    OK, Ruling time

    If you buy a group of games in order to get the one you wanted cheaper than buying on its own. You only count the one, if however you want or will try any of the other games down the line they are included.

    @Skirlasvoud

    picking games in a giveaway count. They are games you have chosen to have and the cost of them is irrelevent.

    Sadly for me, Phattso is still in the game :(. He will fall though :)

    I've come so close to falling already it's unreal. Have had to have a little word with myself on more than one occasion. Hard to break the habit of a lifetime... well, since I could afford to buy my own games anyway. :)

    I'm jealous of all you lot choosing to buy games or not.. I know I signed up to this but bloody hell, I'm still playing Horizon.. since December.
    That's crunch time at work for you, enforced into not buying games because I've got no time, rather than having the choice not to buy games. I feel like a slave, I tell you!

    Oh woe is me.

    Imagine how good it's going to feel when you break that duck though! *





    * much the same as you feel now, but with about 40 (or equivalent in your local currency) less in your pocket

    So far we've had one person almost go nuts.

    After E3 the survivors will be feeding off the bodies of the fallen.

    I'm feeling strong apart from a slight tremor that has developed in my left hand.

    So we've finally moved into the inevitable conclusion of this thread: a Battle Royale in which those unable to escape their own doom try to bully the competition out of the thread in a futile attempt to make themselves feel better.
    I shall enjoy observing the carnage from my perch high atop mount purity.

    Right, so I'm still on zero, but my year is soon going to start taking shape. Crash on Switch is now late-June, rather than July. That will likely be purchase number one. Then Octopath Traveller is out in July. That's Two. Runner 3 will likely be purchased around that time as well, so that's three. E3 will probably hurt, so Smash Bros and the Online Subscription will take me to at least 5 purchases come September. I'm also waiting on a release date for Dark Souls on Switch, so it'll likely be 6 by that point. Ouch!

    We'll probably let you off the Switch Online Pass, unless you download NES Tennis, or any of that ropey old shite, in which case you're screwed. ;-)

    I'm potentially screwed as I'll be taking all the NES games. I already have them all on Wii U and I own a number of them on cartridge, so they're all double dips. Well, at least the first 10 they've announced are.

    I should be fine, as long as they count as double dips. If not, I'm buggered.

    Double dipping as ok as all you're doing is platform shifting to unify under a single piece of hardware. But...the NES games have some very minor new features so that muddies the waters slightly. Or you could argue that you will only buy the Nintendo sub for the stellar online features and that the NES games are something you're forced to have. Who knows, they might auto install too.

    He has been rumbled. Pics of you holding the 10 cartridges whilst juggling satsumas in a wizards hat for proof please.

    Do you lose the NES games if your subscription ceases? Or is Nintendo always going to be adding stuff to keep people interested in keeping the subscription going.

    Probably, so in fact that means they'll only be rented (and don't count at all?)

    The NES games will probably disappear if the subscription expires. I tell you what, though. They do come with extra features that I absolutely will be using, so if that if that is enough to rule out a double dip, that's completely fair.

    Would they count on an individual basis, game by game? The way I will treat them is equivalent to an online game like Rocket League. I will do in and out from time to time. They're easy to pick up and play in short bursts. However, a game is a game and if they count individually, I am already screwed! :D

    I can't speak for the heartless horde, but I'd be somewhat inclined to treat them like a retro collection in the vein of Sega, Namco, Rare, et al. One 'purchase' but many bite-sized retro games. It's a bit borderline, as it'll keep growing, but I reckon that might work.

    But you WILL have to post a picture of you playing each and every one with the Nintendo Ear-to-Ear Grin ( Ecosse) on your face. Each. And. Every. One.

    In a different sexy pose, and removing an item of clothing each time.

    Did GuybrushThreepwood rage delete or get banhammered?
    Noticed a bunch of his posts are now deleted_user.

    Do we remove him or has he resurrected Addyb style?

    GuybrushFourpwood?

    He deleted his account, think it had been coming for a while. Wasn't a rage quit but there was a discussion that finished him off.

    Shame he seemed like a nice chap.

    My immediate guess as to the UK Politics thread or the Depression thread seem to be wrong... they are usually what finishes off most quitting forumites. Curiouser and curiouser.

    No you're right, it was the Depression thread. Think it was a week ago now so it's a few pages back.

    I'm not sure anything good ever comes of that thread. I guess its a nice place for people to talk about their issues, but everyone on this forum is far too opinionated to just listen and keep their mouths shut when they should do.
