Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle

 

Diablo III: Eternal Collection is coming to the Nintendo Switch. To celebrate the occasion, Nintendo is releasing a bundled version of the Switch.From Nintendo:

The devil is literally in the details of a new Nintendo Switch bundle featuring Blizzard’s legendary game Diablo III: Eternal Collection, launching exclusively at GameStop on November 2. Fans who pick up the devilish bundle will receive a Nintendo Switch system and dock featuring Diablo III artwork, a download code for the Diablo III: Eternal Collection game and a themed carrying case, all at a suggested retail price of $359.99.

The only bad thing about this bundle is you have to buy it at GameStop. Since my niece no longer works for GameStop, I feel allowed to bust on them again. I don’t like GameStop.

I don’t own a Nintendo Switch, but if I did, I’d buy it in a bundle. You might as well considering the regular game system as a “suggested” retail price of $299. Those don’t come with a game. A game for the Switch costs $60. I don’t have my abacus or calculator handy, but it seems it makes sense to go ahead and just buy a bundle. It not only comes with a game you want to buy anyway, but it also has special artwork on the system and the dock.

Who doesn’t like artwork on their dock?

I want a Nintendo Switch

I own Diablo III: Eternal Collection for the PC, but I never play it. I’m not a fan of fullscreen gaming on the PC. I like to do multiple things while at once while I’m on the PC. I do want to get a Nintendo Switch. I prefer handheld gaming. I’ve owned a couple of Nintendo 3DS XL systems, but the screen size got to be too small for long periods of use. I was getting ice cream headaches when I played it for long periods of time. Not only is the Nintendo Switch screen larger, but you can also connect it to your TV making it ginormous.

My new Nintendo 3DS XL

I picked up a New Galaxy Style Nintendo 3DS XL at Walmart yesterday. The price was rolled back to $179.00 from the original price of $199. I’ve wanted to pick one up for a while now. I wanted one to use while waiting for Uber requests.

The problem is, I don’t have any games for it. I had a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, but I cannot find it anywhere. It’s just gone. I tried to download the games I paid for through the digital Nintendo Game Store with my old 3DS, but it tells me there’s nothing to download.

I wanted to buy a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It’s running $19.99 everywhere that sells it.

Target

My first stop was Target. They had the game, but there was nobody in electronics.

Toys R Us

They also had it, but like Target, there was nobody working in electronics. There was a sign saying if anyone needed help, to go to the customer service desk.

GameStop

They were selling a used copy for $18.99. I tried to buy it, but it was like the register area was at the mouth of a black hole. Time slowed down to a crawl. The employee wearing a beanie was helping someone do something that involved a going to the back of the store multiple times. There were two people in front of me waiting to buy a Funko figure. The other store employee was talking to them, talking about how he got his grandmother into watching The Walking Dead. I guess the figure was from The Walking Dead.

At that point, a woman and a developmentally challenged man came into the store.  The developmentally challenged man began making very loud noises. The problem was that I began having a mini-panic attack. The only thing stopping it from becoming a full panic attack was that I left GameStop. I just couldn’t take it anymore.

Best Buy

My last attempt at buying a physical copy of the game was at Best Buy. They had it in individual anti-theft plastic cases. This made buying it very easy. I bought it and went home.

What a hassle.  I think I’ll be checking out the Nintendo Game Store in the future. Even if my purchases disappear, it’s easier than going out in the real world.
