Nintendo Switch

Can sometimes never understand Nintendo's thinking. The ways I could think they could make money of switch but don't here a thing from them.

 

Out source the Wii U library and have them a £20 eshop games.

SNES virtual console instead of the mini. 

In fact virtual console on all previous ones. N64,GameCube, Wii drip feed these to fill the gaps in between the first party games for switch.

 

Just wish memory was not a bit of an issue as big micro SD cards are expensive for bigger capacity ones.

 

They're making big bucks at the moment with the Switch and Snes Mini as it is. I'm sure we'll soon see VC, Wiimasters and more WiiU ports soon enough when they're needing a boost to profits - their next fiscal year starts in April so perhaps they're holding back until then having already likely exceeded their targets for this year with how well the Switch has sold.

There’s a Nintendo Switch box shaped present under my tree!!!!

A rectangular box shape? I sense disappointment.

Ah, man.

 

Just had my Switch turn on to...a black screen. :omg:

 

Luckily, a hard reset did the trick (hold power off for a looooong time). But the prospect of a Switch-less XMas flashed before my eyes. I need a stiff drink.

Mine does it a lot. If you held down the home button did the sleep options appear but not work?

 

Reboot fixes it every time in my case. Does mean I always have to save before I leave it in sleep mode mind.

Minecraft is simply an exceptional game on everything. It's actually no better on Switch, but it is a must-have at least somewhere in your gaming collection. And the Mario theme is pretty damn cool, it has to be said.

 

I'm already very familiar with it on PC, but haven't played it in ages so was considering picking it up if it's a good port. It's the lack of decent controls that's stopped me getting the pocket version.

I would happily trade any new games in Q1 2018 for a way to back up my current game saves off the Switch.

 

I think they'd just prefer the cash. Online service should be coming early next year.

I was a little suspicious at the fact that it was cheaper than the ones where you have to use the PCB from the original dock, but it's worked very well since I got it. Sometimes I need to undock/dock the switch if the picture doesn't switch to the TV immediately, but most of the time it works as well as the official one. 

 

Thanks for all the battery pack info, I went for the Anker 20100 one - got 20% off it as I got a 10000 at the same time, which will do nicely as an xmas present for my sister. I decided that the smaller one is good for phones, but the larger one gives me more flexibility to charge more stuff.

 

Thanks - just ordered one.

Interesting. Can you tell me, does this work with a 2.4A charger and a USB-C cable or do you need to use an official charger with the higher output?

I know it's bad form to actively wish for remasters, but I'd really like captain toad on the switch. Like many (all?) games, it'd be perfect for those quick pick up and play blasts. 

 

I don't. I understand why someone who didn't own a Wii U would want some of the Wii U games remastered, however, would it be much of a remaster or even a remaster at all. Remasters for me imply improved visuals and/or sound and there's not that much difference between the Wii U and the Switch. I was a bit disappointed that Captain Toad levels weren't in Mario Odyssey (or they might be as I've not finished it yet).

 

I read rumours that Wolfenstein was up for a port. If it can handle Doom, it can probably handle this.

I just assumed he meant 'port'. A remaster would be a bit pointless, as you say.

I remembered a bunch of discussion about it earlier, but yeah, they appear. I think it *might* be related to my messing around with HDMI cables. I really need to get an HDMI switcher bought.

Has anyone played Romancing Saga 2? Trying to decide between that and I’m a Satsuma for some Christmas JRPG fun.

 

I picked it up and spent an hour on it yesterday, it's alright ^_^ Out of the 2 it depends on what you prefer, proper old school JRPG would be saga, but if you like sort of PS1 Final Fantasys I would say I am Setsuna. They are both decent games so far as I can tell. That said Xenoblade Chronicles is my go to JRPG at the moment. I'm sure I will get round to completing the other 2 at some point :)

oh no, I am making that mistake ! 

 

Tiny Metal is the Sony one I was thinking of, though that was due out this week too actually but isn't on their list.

 

There's also Wargroove coming out early next year which looks very much like Advance Wars.

I've avoided Gungeon for so long on PC because I think I'm too shit at this sort of game to enjoy it. But I got it on Switch and it's a lot of fun! Played only in handheld mode so far and it's a bit hard to combine right-stick aiming and R to shoot, but I have a Pro Controller sitting on my desk now that I suspect will help a lot. I didn't have a lot of time to get used to it, just played up to finding the level 1 boss and then since I was low on health went searching for a medkit and got killed by something little instead.

 

I might look at customising the controls (there's all the options you could want on that) for handheld as I'd like to play this on the commute, it seems well-suited.

One issue I’ve had a couple of times in the last week is that, while in handheld mode, the Switch all of a sudden doesn’t recognise the right joycon as being attached. It still works though if you play free hand. Have to go into the settings and disconnect all controllers and then it’s fine. 

 

Anyone else had this?

If you download Pinball FX (think that was the one) on the eshop - it's free and also there are some free tables available for a limited time.

 

Pretty much a free game and i've liked what i have played so far.

Enter the Gungeon is £4.43 on the Russian eShop.

 

Thanks for that, took me all of 5 minutes to set up the Russian account.

I have a main UK account and a secondary one which I use for region switching. Avoids having an account for each country and means I won't nuke any UK eShop credit by accident.

Absolutely loving it so far. I ended up downloading the Walking Dead table which is pretty cool. Got 45,000,000 on it last night.
