What's supposed to be bad there? Drops when quickly moving left or right? If so, I played 2 rounds of the demo and did nothing but rocked my finger back and forth and never had it register a drop.

The hard drops yea. I played a party round with a friend and she was having that exact problem that everyone on the internet talks about : accidentally pressing up during Tetris. And I was too

But today I recieved the Xenoblade Pro Controller and my first impressions with it are: improvement. No accidental drops so far

Yeah. I always want to replay that game, but nothing comes close to the very first time I ever encountered the village and the doctor, and the whole nightmare began. Just running through that town being stabbed, shooting to the last bullet, and being saved by the bell at the last second, the chainsaw guy bearing down on me and then leaving. That was an amazing gaming experience.

No other time came close, since I had killed how many chainsaw maniacs by that point that I was no longer impressed by them. I would later go on to know that town's layout far too well and all the spots with items from playing it so much.

It's like BotW. I'll never get that first time back. But that's what makes the best games the best games I suppose.

The defining moment of RE4 for me will always be the first time I shot one of the villagers in the head and instead of just falling over dead like usual, that loving bulging pulsating freakshow popped out.

What's the state of the mini-dock scene right now? The Nyko one seems to break a lot of things. SFANS was a complete implosion. A bunch of what seemingly generic USB-C to HDMI+USB+Power adapters exist on Amazon but apparently only support 30fps?

Is the mini-dock dream dead?

I really wanted a mini-dock, but the price difference between the official dock ($60) plus mini-housing ($20) vs the cheapest third party mini dock ($40) was not enough for me to feel comfortable risking my $250 Switch plus the save files for the games Iím in the middle of. It took 2 or 3 months for widespread reports of the Nyko dock failures to spread, the Best Buy dock hasnít been available that long, and the cheap Shenzhen docks on Amazon have been changing their brand name every month.

The Nintendo Switch is perfect, and only perfect accessories should be connected to it.

I am pretty happy that companies are taking feedback and doing something with it.


The recently announced updates have made me seriously consider DooM and Mummy and I was just slightly in the nope column before.

I bought Doom without second guessing myself when the gyro-aiming patch was announced because Iíve never enjoyed any twin-stick shooters and Splatoon 2/BotW have spoiled me. Mouse was always good for aiming, dual stick felt like you were learning how the gamesí auto-aim worked, IR/Wiimote felt like trying to hold one outstretched hand still while shaking the other hand to reload. Gyro-aiming with no other motion controls is the best of all controls, especially for console gaming.

Look on the bright side.

After playing a few hours of Doom with gyro, itís safe to say itís the best console version now even with worse graphics/frame rate. The controls are tight as poo poo and Iím pulling off stuff that I could never do with just dual sticks.

Sorry, guy.


Full Disclosure, I went back to Puyo demo with my new Pro controller and tried TETRIS instead of Puyo this time and I did get some hard drops. Not a lot, but it's definitely still just kind of baked into the Pro controller's design, I suppose...

Yeah Puyo does not have hard drops at all normally, gotta test with Tetris instead. Honestly the input tester in the Switch menu itself is usually a pretty good indicator too.

I did the Dpad mod for a joycon for fun but I need something to really test the hell out of it. Thinking Celeste is probably the game that's gonna brutalize my thumb the most?

I'm glad they had the sense to add gyro aiming to Doom. Now it'll be on my buy list eventually. Really didn't see the point in buying a worse port of something I already own on another platform if it wasn't going to kick rear end in portable mode, which only seemed possible with motion controls.

On that note, can you invert the camera using the stick but keep gyro aim un-inverted? That poo poo was really frustrating in RE revelations because I have to invert the camera, but gyro controls feel completely stupid inverted and the RE doesn't have the option do both and it feels like poo poo.

I wish for them to also release Doom 1 and Doom 2 on the Switch, also with gyro aiming.

Yep, separate options for joystick and gyro inversion.

Wake up with the Kin-OH GOD WHAT IS THAT?!

Guys I might be going from "Bayonetta is pretty good" to "oh poo poo I might love this game," I just replayed a few early missions to make sure I hit all verses and got my first platinum. Wow that was fun

I also already got the counter skill, bat within, and the witch time accessory, feels good

I'm only in chapter 7 or so though so quick question: do you guys wait until after beating the game to go back to get every hidden verse, or do you randomly go back to earlier levels as you work through the story to find hidden goodies/grind some halos along the way?

I'm not sure how to balance just pressing forward with going back to replay stages every now and then in between major arcs, though I seem to have fun either way so maybe it doesn't matter

If you can write up better instructions or even find a link/YouTube I am very interested!!!
Itís pretty simple. The video link that came with mine pretty much left out a bunch of screws in the original dock, so the main thing is just looking around unscrewing a bunch of more screws until everything comes apart. Mind the ribbon cable connecting the main board to the little USB-C connector piece while taking it apart, to disconnect it you flip up the connector thing (on either end) to release the cable. I donít remember if itís obvious or not, but probably a good idea to keep in mind the orientation just in case. The LED is a simple plug connector you can just pull out...and isnít used in the portable dock so you donít need it anymore (although I planned to jam mine in, but forgot until I screwed the portable one closed ). Thereís some fiddly bits around the USB-C connector, but again just screw everything apart.

To stick it in the new case, Iíd suggest connecting the ribbon cable back first (and wrapping it around however you want). I went over the upper side cause that seemed to put the least tension on it, but Iíve seen other videos going the other way and that seems to work fine too. Anyway basically just line stuff up and screw it all in from there. A few on the inside to secure the boards, then the rest on the outside to close the shell. Thereís a few foam feet for the bottom and two more to go where the Switch sits cause the port sits a bit high.

Yeah, particularly on the harder stuff where you gotta transition directional dashes pretty quickly and accurately. At this point Iím good enough with the analog stick that I donít really mind, but I still screw up the inputs here and there at particularly bad times.

But also you should get Celeste anyway just cause itís awesome.

Or whatever retro game of some sort that requires a lot of back and forth movement, like rolling left to right or whatever opposite directions. Thatís the stuff I have trouble with (or at least feels most awkward) on the joycon buttons.

The original Doom games didn't have any vertical aiming, just horizontal, and none of the official ports have changed this, so this would be of limited effect.
