Weekend Console Download Deals for Aug. 11: Nintendo Multiplayer Sale

Find a friend and jump into the best multiplayer games available on the Nintendo Switch.


Nintendo once had an old ad campaign where execs would drive around the landscape, approach people's doorsteps, and say, "We would like to play." Gaming is better with friends, which is why Nintendo is taking the next few weeks to celebrate with the Nintendo Multiplayer Sale. Dozens of multiplayer titles are on sale, and that includes some exceptionally rare first-party title discounts, including what I believe is a first-time discount on Mario Strikers Battle League.

Elsewhere, this is the last week to check out the PlayStation Summer Sale before summer ends and everyone goes back to school. (For some kids, it's already too late and they're reading this from their phones inside their classrooms. Make sure your teacher doesn't catch you.)

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
