    Market forces as mentioned I guess... Hell Sony haven't even got a Ridge Racer on PS4.... The game that arguably made the PS1.... Wasn't RR8 supposed to be coming to the Switch?

    I think that is the problem though. Its probably too good so nobody can be bothered to challenge it. Bit like when Mario 64 came out on the N64 with respect to platformers.

    I think this is probably it TBH. Even on other formats there is lack of these games. PS4 is hardly brimming with them for example. Xbox has a few and MS seems to support its Horizon franchise. Which I think is the only first party AAA arcade racer these days. Other than DriveClub don't think Sony have released anything.

    Ah great. Hoping MS hadn't changed things around with respect to this! Love a bit of Burnout Paradise....

    Pondering over racers on the Switch. Looking at my 360 it actually seems better at these types of games. Forza, PGR4, Burnout Paradise. Makes me wonder is the 360 actually more powerful* than the Switch or is it literally just lazy coding or using heavier engines? Not trying to start any flame wars etc etc but genuinely surprised we haven't seen any racers on the Switch really deliver in terms of graphical fidelity or frame rate of the older generation consoles. *OK looking at the raw specs on paper the Switch trounces the 360.

    Gold is one of those things though not always something for everyone! Looking at my backlog of games with gold and now gamepass well lets say not stuck for choice. Too much is the problem.... Still have a substantial backlog of 360 games on gold I wanted to play through too.... Maybe I should stop subbing to gold for a bit and play through the old 360 games I want to play. I think you keep those games don't you? (even if you don't sub to gold)

    Ta. Its a start. Actually contemplating having a downsize with the amount of consoles I have. Just don't have the time anymore - or choose not to make the time - so I am looking at keeping the Switch as my main console gaming platform. Like the pick up and play nature and the fact it hardly takes any space up. Also have a PC too for the racing games but it would be nice if the Switch had a few more arcade racers on it....

    It doesn't look that impressive TBH. Lots of pop-up. Noticed its using the Unreal Engine.. not sure how well this scales and is optimised for the Switch for this type of game? On a positive note its a racer on the Switch.

    What are the options on the Switch? Well other than Mario Kart 8...

    The PS3 and Wii used bluetooth though without issue IIRC. I expect its one of costs and manufacturers not wanting to pay license fees....

    Decided to give Zelda one last try before I move it on! It's been a while since I played it so might be worthwhile starting again... although to be fair only got to the village and got told about the 4 (divine?) beastie things... so perhaps it might be easy enough to pick it up from there... Might have to find a guide on how to get my hearts up as I think last time I played this I kept getting killed too quickly by monsters. Thinking back I think the main issue with this was my lack of focus because every time I played it I kept getting distracted by other things in the game Oh and dispatching tomorrow:- Happy days....

    Thing is with the Switch.. if you didn't have any other console or access to a PC and just played on it there is an abundance of content. However if you have any other gaming device then the library looks quite slim... Also it depends on what games you like to play.... its never going to be powerful enough to give the richer experiences of the other consoles - so the big third parties aren't going to porting their games over any time soon. Not sure if thats a bad thing or not...

    I've been playing this on GamePass. One that I liked the look of and it was going to be a purchase on the Switch. Think I'm upto level 8 or 9. Some interesting concepts but its running out of steam now and getting a bit tired of it. Shame really as I really enjoyed it initially.

    Well only saying LOL. I did the same as you when I got it! Think I was fatigued with the franchise or just had too many games. So I left it. Eventually went back to it and after a couple of hours or so I was hooked... Not sure what clicked with me. I was flicking between playing on PC and Xbox. Although do think it plays much better at 60fps.
