    Buy now. Like any tech, if you just wait for the next iteration, you will never get to buy anything.

    Is there a repair center (like bhurns and joy) doing battery replacement? I think mine has degraded I can only play Starlink for less than 2-hrs when undocked. Haven’t tested on Zelda again but the battery drain is too quick.

    Thankfully, none of the games on my watchlist are on sale. Pahinga muna sa Christmas shopping spree.

    Though I am tempted to get a physical copy of Mario Kart. Mahirap pag may datablitz branch just an elevator ride away. :(

    I think all you need to set is the console's language to English then all the games will be played in English (if available). I have two cartridges that are in Japanese but when I played them in my console, they booted up in English :)

    Also, couldn't resist:

    Can pls share the name of the app you're using? :)

    Mario Kart just buy second hand that's easy to find for around 1.8k. Then use the savings to buy Celeste at full price hehe. I recommend it even at full price. Lowest it's gone on sale is 20% off lang also..so not much savings. Really loved the game. There's also a Limited Run physical version for pre-order right now: https://limitedrungames.com/products/switch-limited-run-23-celeste-preorder

    Sa wakas nakabili na din ako, 16,495k kay d*t*blit*. Currently only have 2 games purchased digitally, these two for me are still only the best ones, set the zip code to oregon so that no sales tax and linked my citibank credit card so far so good! Downloading the games now :)

    Your account should be set to a diff country so you can use the eShop, go for US and use an address and zip code for Corvallis, Oregon (97330) para no tax.

    Just found and bought one at 1.7k on FB, but will probably wait for Celeste to go on sale as my Switch backlog is steadily getting longer.

    Did Nintendo have a crackdown on non-US credit cards on US nintendo accounts? It's been 2 years since my last CC purchase in the eShop and it doesn't go through :(

    I just purchased Dead Cells in US eShop last week using my local (PH) CC and it went through. Just use the zip code you used in your Switch account in the CC details screen.

    ^^ I have been looking for it. It only shows country and nothing more. :(

    I made the mistake of removing my CC as saved payment option...but that's just my normal self never to do that on any online account.
