I'm not saying Trump donated money to NAMBLA, but people are saying that. It's something I've heard, but I don't believe Donald Trump donated several million dollars to NAMBLA over the last several years. Still, if he did that would be a great reason to not release his tax returns


UPS shipping goons: UPS is allowing me to select to pick up the package from a UPS Store instead of having it randomly delivered sometime tomorrow. Google tells me it is usually available at 8:30AM the day of scheduled delivery, but the "estimated delivery date" when I go to select a store says Monday.

Does anyone know how this works?

What if you touch a Switch game card and then eat some Doritos and the gross Switch game taste gets on the Doritos and the Doritos taste bad? Can we expect Nintendo to fix this issue in the Day 1 patch?

i beat the snipper clip demo solo since i'm the only one awake right now. it was ok. i don't think its a particularly good game to own without a crew to play it with but i can see it being good for a couple plays with the right people and some drinks. the faces are very cute so thats a plus.

not really interested in getting the full version. the joycons feel like total rear end to use individually so a short tech demo to show my wife and whoever comes by is all i'm gonna use it for.

also i play the demo at 75% screen brightness, low volume, wifi on and it ate 10% of my battery in about 10 minutes

they probably should have gone with a 480p screen guys.

You probably had to do it before today. They will likely cancel the delivery but it will sit on a truck until it comes back late in the day and not be available until Monday.

On UPS, it says you need to do it before the day of delivery. Since it is so late, it might as well be the day of delivery. It's already on a truck to be delivered to you and the driver will just get a notification to skip your delivery and they'll take it off the truck and deliver it to a store on Monday.

Amazon release day shipping: Not actually release day.



They sent the Switch via FedEx, which never, ever delivers to my house (it's at the top of a hill and they don't want to go up the driveway) so I won't actually get it until Monday most likely.





Thanks Amazon. I don't even have an estimate. Unless they're sending a loving courier to get me my Switch then RIP my weekend.

Usually the case. My old place was 7-7:30. However I moved into my house last month and not sure the UPS driver comes by here, only USPS. Going to be cramming as much work as I can get in before it arrives, then all bets are off.

Oh poo poo, I still haven't set up the HDMI switch on that TV, well, there is a project for tomorrow as well.

I figured this out. I had to select the "main" UPS shipping hub in my area and that changed it to allow me to pick it up tomorrow morning.

It runs just like the originals does which includes a bit of slowdown when sprites and explosions go nuts all at once. Metal Slug 3 was a pretty good with minimal slowdown compared to MS2 so it wasn't really a distraction for me. There are decent options for scaling too, with Pixel perfect, soft filter, several scanline options and even a weird crt vertical scrolling effect which looks kinda like a really lovely beat to hell arcade monitor under cheap fluorescent lights.

If you want to play any neo geo games without any slowdown there are hack options within most PC emulators to deal with that. It's not really an authentic experience but whatever floats your boat.

As for region I'm in Australia.

The dock really fucks a case or nerfing it.

I here the joycons aren't comfortable in the grip being perfectly parallel. I wonder if a 3rd party grip could improve the ergonomics. I always used grips on my 3ds because the thinness hurt after a while.

I'll wait on a charging grip to see what comes out.
