Also joining Club Switch on Christmas day. Actual Switchmas! Woo!

I've got Mario sat in the cupboard waiting. Any other recommendations to have ready to go? Thinking I'll probably download Snipperclips+ for some multiplayer fun.

Resisting double dipping on Zelda for now!

Quick question - are Switch cart games region locked?

There's a nice looking Zelda explorers edition launching in the US in a few weeks. And if I jump on the Switch bandwagon then I might be tempted.

Nope, completely region-free.

So apparently the Hulu app is coming out for Switch today in the US. I'm not that bothered about these things myself but I know lots of people were keen to see more media stuff on Switch so it's nice to know things are starting to happen.

Weird that was out before something like Netflix or YouTube.

Didn't the youtube app lead to a jailbreak on 3ds? I think that's why these are taking so long.

yes same I am not too bothered about this but yes it's good to see this happening as it's another selling point and as the price comes down I think a Netflix and youtube app's could help parents buy it for their children.

I spotted you playing this on Wednesday night Jawa! Long enough to have any impressions, or did you move straight on to DOOM?

I've been playing Morphite pretty much non-stop, and making good use of the Switch's screenshotting. It's one of those games where I keep wanting to take pictures of what I've found. From the serene:

To the silly:

This is what happens when you call in your dropship, then ride a giant iguana mount directly under the landing spot and leave it there to see what happens :lol:

That was a super fun planet in general, not only was there a giant Iguana to ride but I also rented out two different vehicles. Check it out:

Damn invisible ceilings stopping me from getting out of bounds!

I've only dipped my toe in, OR, but... I really like it! I'm surprised by the similarities with NMS in some of the game's mechanisms. I need to play a lot more to get a better idea but I am pleased that I jumped aboard following your recommendation.

I'm gonna create a thread for the game - hopefully tomorrow - so that we can chat more about it :) .

I only just realised something, the game cases are the exact same size as the Switch itself! :shock:

So, what's the deal with buying from other regions eshops? Is it straight forward to do?

Anyone had any experience using something like Revolut to purchase this way? My bank usually adds a good few quid on in foreign transaction fees so it tends to negate the benefit...

EDIT: asking as I've noticed that Stardew Valley is only about £6 from the Mexican store!

Reports that Nintendo are planning to ship 25-30 million consoles in their next fiscal year.

They must be pretty confident with how they're shaping up for 2018. Probably means Pokemon...

Time to finally post my FC:

SW-1394-6292-4135
NNID if that works: SevenFisher

Also been playing lot of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and also got Splatoon 2, Puyo x Tetris and Arms and I've enjoyed all of them, and I'm still happily playing Mario Odyssey (trying for all power moons now).

I could get Zelda but I'm waiting till Christmas for it, want to spend time on games I've got.

I had spotted in my friends list that you’d been playing this a ton, Seven! Could this mean that you’re planning to make a return to the all-new GR Mario Kart Monday?

This is why you don't finish games! You spend so much time watching the friends list :lol:
