Does the switch even have a holiday (December) release? If not, it's doomed.

Switch is short supplied in Japan by a good amount compared to previous weeks. It's kind of weird that the rest of the world seems to still have enough stock that it isn't affected. I am looking at Amazon right now in the US and I can buy a Switch for $385 or I can actually get it from Amazon for $300 if I am willing to wait a month. Maybe physical retailers actually have stock though?

Japan must have ever worse stock issues than that if it seriously dropped in sales this week.

I mean there's no reason to sweat the deets here, it is still a total one-up from last year.

Party is over, pack it up and go home.

There it is.. the edge of the Cliff is in sight.

If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

RIP Nintendo.


I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Where's the bottom?

If supply is already this much of an issue, I'm really starting to worry that these holidays might be much smaller for Switch than I expected due to shortages.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
