Someone posted information about how much space digital games will take for the switch

Dragon Quest Heroes I & II – 32 GB
I Am Setsuna – 1.40 GB

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 7 GB
Nobunaga’s Ambition – 5 GB

only having 32gb internal space will hurt the system

3 more games in the Wii U Collection

As I have a dislike of GameStop I limit how much I am willing to spend in that store. But I found 3 Wii U Games I did not have in the collection.

Disney Infinity 2.0 $2.99
Skylanders Giants $0.99
Skylanders Swap Force $0.99

Tied of GameStop lying

so I stopped into a GameStop in the next town over and got confirmation that my local GameStop store lied to me once again. They have a list of people who want the Wii U Kiosk and if they are told to remove the Kiosk it will go to one of the people on the list.

So looks like I will be updating my policy for the company. I used to have a limit of $10 a game, now that limit just became $5. I used to go to that store once or twice a week. It just became go into that store only when the website says they have 2 or more games for under $5 I want. The goal will be to stop going into the store 100% soon

Update (Feb 25, 2017): I have not returned to the local GameStop store and I will not ever step foot into that store again.

Always looking for displays

I am always looking to get more displays items, such as Retail Kiosks, artwork, signs, posters, etc. This will be something I will always accept even if I have 10 of the same item I will be happy to get more of it since I can later use them in trades to get ones I am missing.

Thanks Pookninja3

Just completed another trade with Pookninja3 and got some more cases I needed for my games.

Super Mario 3D Land (Case & Manual)
New Super Mario Bros (Case)
Super Mario 64 DS (Case & Manual)

Still looking for the manual for New Super Mario Bros (DS)
