    So.,..... 3 days left in my first billing cycle of Google fi. We financed the phones so that's not refected here, but it's only another $30 for device with insurance. My wife's end of the bill will be about $5 more than my half.

    I bought a PS4 pro on eBay last fall to save a little money and it died on me. As it turns out, Sony doesn't honor the warranty if you bought it on an auction site like eBay. Lesson learned.

    Quick update. It isn't as dead as I thought it was. Turns out that the blu-ray drive can lock up and force the system into emergency shutdown mode. It starts working again if you manually eject the disc. I just hope that it doesn't happen too often because it is still a hassle.

    got a 3ds xl coming for myself. i bought a 2ds xl full price a little while ago, but then saw a sweet 3ds deal. returned my 2ds, but the deal was at costco online. we don't have those around here, but i got a buddy who is a member. while i was waiting for him to order the **** expired.

    i've been without one b/c after seeing that deal i couldn't bring myself to pay full price again. the same deal showed up yesterday and my buddy got on it quick. its a new 3ds xl, charger (3s don't actually come with one), ocarina of time, and super smash for 200. zelda link between worlds should be down to $20 now as a classic so i'll prob pick it up when i see it. im gonna finish bowser inside story first and also keep my eyes peeled for the other mario rpg-ish games.

    Should've just bought a switch. I have no idea why anyone would buy a DS now that they have the switch.

    Isn’t the Switch just as portable as the DS but can be a full console system as well? No idea how much a Switch costs though.

    The Zelda game is an all time great and I'm pretty sure Smash Bros is on it, could be wrong. And the new Mario Odyssey is exactly what you described. You should just okay the switch, considering you have it and it wouldn't cost you the $200.

    I guess I'll be more direct. There is a Zelda game and a Mario game, the two things you want. And they're both probably better than the DS Mario and Zelda. Just saying, you could've saved the $200 and had a better experience but you do you.

    We have both of those on the switch. Zero interest in them.

    Gotcha. Have you played either? I haven't tried out Mario but my daughter likes it. Zelda is fun but it's overwhelming how massive it is. I'll never finish it.
