Went shopping for carrots and came home with a ginormous TV.

Had to go back out shopping for a ginormous TV stand.

Now I have my old tiny 50 inch 3DTV in the conservatory.

On Mercari I currently have $47 credit and $21 balance. (Yeah they're separate for some reason) The credit expires Jan 27 so I'll use it to get a Switch Lite. Until then I'll try to sell more stuff to increase my balance, so I can get that NSL as cheaply as possible. Problem is that for many of the gaming related things I can sell, I'd feel more comfortable not selling them until I actually have the Switch Lite and know I won't need them anymore. :p

Lots of unopened NSL on sale on Mercari. Although I don't understand why. It retails for 199 but these are listed for less. Getting a used NSL would actually cost more. I'd think there has to be some sort of catch, but as long as the seller has good reviews I guess there's no need to be suspicious. Maybe it has something to do with lack of MSRP enforcement on sites like Mercari.

Should I get a Wii U instead of a Switch Lite?
https://www.mercari.com/us/item/m84147757152/

I've owned one before, the gamepad is massive and ridiculous. But the games are cheaper (as well as the system itself being cheaper) and I wouldn't have to worry about stick drift. It can still play Tropical Freeze and BotW which is good enough. There are even a few games not on Switch Lite, such as Twilight Princess, Mario 3D, and some others.

That is a great bundle, aside from the stupid Princess Peach controller. But the games it comes with are winners.

no. Just gest a switch or you will remain in limbo forever.

in limbo? lol

It's probably the case I will still want a Switch afterwards. But the idea of getting a WiiU seemed "cute" I guess and I like "cute" ideas like that. (might be why I got the GBC for instance)

Seller sent me an offer an hour ago for 90. After applying credit and balance I can get the Wii U for $48.76. (A bit less actually since sales tax will be lower)

I am considering it.. but maybe I will wait a day or two.
edit: ha, I'm too much of a coward to take it. I need to be in the right state of mind. Right now I'm using my laptop not gaming, so I don't feel like buying game stuff even though I might end up wanting it later.

edit: It was sold.. xD ...but there is always the next one. Lots of people are putting up their Wii U and they go for pretty cheap.

Nothing to do with cowardice. If I don't really want something I also hesitate. I wanted a ps4 for a long time but I didn't want it that much because I'm content with my switch. Now I waited so long I might aswell wait for the ps5. A lot of the games I was interested in before seem dumb to me now so I saved myself some time and money by waiting. Waiting is good when buying. If you really want/need something you will probably buy it instantly without debate.

What gaming stuff do you want then that you don't have?

ATM I just wanted something to play on the couch, could be anything. GBC, 2DS...
Switch Lite wasn't really on the table until I played DKC Returns 3D and realized how good it is, so finally the Switch has a selling point for me. (Tropical Freeze)

and I've reached a point in DKC Returns where I'm about done with the game (beat the game and collected the kong letters in every stage) so I need something else lined up. I actually picked up ALBW for 3DS not long ago, since it beats having nothing to play. And since I've never beaten it. (I had it a year or two ago but only beat three dungeons)

You have a point about hesitating on the Wii U. The closer I am to buying the more starts to feel ridiculous. But that $47 credit I have on Mercari expires in three weeks.. I think that is messing with me.

If you sell something or return something, if you haven't set up your account to receive payment (which involves giving bank routing information and other stuff), then they just deduct that amount from your next purchase.
I just sold something, and am still waiting on a previous buyer to rate my sale, so I will have even more in the next few days. The longer I wait the lower price I can get that NSL (or god forbid a Wii U).

oh that makes sense (though not that it will expire).
Some deals seem quite good on that site but some seem quite expensive. I guess it's ebay's wilder cousin.

By the way didja ever notice how the WiiU gamepad is matte underneath even though it's gloss on the front? It's such a terrible and cheap fucking design.
Still might be nice to have one to be able to play original Wii games though. Hmm..
Anyway my discount is up to 81.20 and by next week I should have about 92.50.

hehe yeah. I never got the wii U because I found it too ugly. I like some games on it but I just don't want that ugly thing in my posession. (I do have the wii though and I think it looks nice enough. It's nice and small too) The switch looks really nice though. It fixes all problems the wii U had. I have it on my desk and it does not demand attention at all but it's there when I need a quick fix. It's quite convenient. I really want this design to never go away. It's exactly what I've wanted out of a console all my gaming life.

Oh? I would've thought you had one at sone point. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised. If it sold worse than other Nintendo systems, that means that even Nintendo fans were not buying it.

I could get a Wii for $23.10. I was staring at the checkout screen just now. But decided not to. I guess that settles it.

Wii is dirt cheap. I like the old channels it was weird. It's like nintendo thought home entertainment would be cute and wholesome and bring families together and grandma and grandpa would check the weather on the wii weather channel and the kids would play wii tennis with them. Home entertainment now is not that cute anymore with Netflix and stuff. Its practical, but it's like a hooker that won't let you kiss her, only fuck. No romance at all.

Ebay has these fake DS game cards that are loaded with tons of games. Wondering if I should pick one of them up.

It seems like the 208-in-1 is best despite having fewer games than the 468/500/etc-in-1 just because the games in it are way better. Pokemon Conquest, DQ9, both DS Advance Wars, NSMB, Mario 64 DS, Phantasy Star Zero, seemingly every Pokemon and Kirby title, a ton of Layton and Ace Attorney games, and although I'm not interested or have already played them, it's a very good sign to see Castlevania and FF represented seemingly in full.

    You don’t eat £55 steaks everytime though right. Most of the time people eat cheap factory meat they buy in the supermarket.

    No not every time. Today we’re going to that restaurant though for Claire’s birthday. I won’t get that steak but I’ll probably get the normal fillet steak. They do a cracking lasagne too, it’s all made with the best fresh ingredients and you really can taste it

    When we visited Cala’n Bosch on the island of Menorca we found this little restaurant out near the beach down a side street. Oh my god, the food was amazing. We got to know the owner, his name was Charlie. We were all inclusive so got our food for free at the hotel but we ate at Charlies in an evening 5 days out of 7

    We went for Italian thus afty. Isabellla got wild boar sausages and mashed potatoes. Then we popped in a pub with a live band and Isabellla was dancing. I love days like today.
