Finally got around to applying one of the screen protectors listed in the OP. Did the shower thing and it was easy to apply. Haven't played it yet, but I don't think there will be any problems.

Yea, they definitely shoehorned in a handful of things where motion controls are nigh-unavoidable, but I'm not at all mad about it. None of it is at Donkey Kong Country Returns level of "shake the Wiimote to ground pound or GLHF" so it's all good.


What do you do otherwise? Jump out of the frog at the apex of the normal jump?

I used my joycons today for the first time since buying the switch on release day and turns out the left one has that awful, awful lag problem. That’s not a thing that’s fixed by getting new joycons right? I have to send my entire unit to Nintendo right?



Spellman posted:

I've been having this problem too, except only sometimes. When I reboot the Switch sometimes the remotes seem to fix themselves. But mainly I think there's something interfering with it

*However yea the Switch Joy-Cons at launch were poo poo unless you live in a shoebox, and the warranty would be gone by now. But you can still ask if you can send them in for free repair because you're just opening them as if they're brand new and they should work

You don't have to send your entire unit, you send the joycon. The joycons that came with the console are under a one year warranty so you're good.

You can do a bunch of stuff when you jump out of an enemy. Generally a hat bounce or a dive will get extra height/distance. Itís hard to get the timing right though, I spent most of the game not using stuff like that and now I have to learn all the advanced moves.

I really think Metroid is going to end up being the last 3DS game I buy. Itís really hard going back to it after playing the Switch.

I've been playing Radiant Historia (imported / missed it the first time around) and I've been enjoying it but there's not a moment I don't wish it was on the Switch. (Especially since there's no 3D.)

Yeah getting any popular one from name brands (samsung, sandisk, kingston, toshiba) is a safe bet. 64 and 128 is the sweet spot for $/GB right now and read/write speeds won't make much/any difference when playing games, so just get one of the bestsellers

you probably already know this but make sure that the card you order is actually coming from amazon and not another seller listing their stuff on amazon or you will get a counterfeit 19 times out of 20

Switch Doom is a lot smaller due to the lower texture resolution. For the physical release, Campaign and Arcade Modes fit on a single 16gb cartridge, with an optional 9gb download for multiplayer. The eShop version is a single 13.6gb download.

Ah, that makes sense. imo it still looks great portable from what I've seen, which is what i'd mostly be interested in since I already have the PS4 version.

My biggest concern would be that the joycon sticks couldn't handle it very well. I hope they bumped the auto aim through the roof for the switch version because I think it would be barely playable otherwise.

Come join us in the Odyssey thread, Odyssey friends.

The next few weeks are insane, Doom is out in 7 days, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 just 3 weeks after that. (Skyrim and LA Noire are out in between but eh). I had a quick look at the Coming Soon section on the eShop last night, and there were a bunch of other decent-looking games out on the 10th and the 17th November also.

I still have barely touched Fire Emblem Warriors, also.

I missed getting it on the U and hope it gets a port to the Switch at some point. Probably will, when they have a slow month or something.
