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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
