£15 seems a great price for Rocket League, really looking forward to getting it.

I'm so glad I picked up my Switch. I've been playing it all the time since I've got it and it's fantastic. I feel like I'm buying too many games though. Got Mario Kart 8, Odyssey and I've downloaded Stardew Valley. Going to preorder Xenoblade Chronicles too. Not got enough time to play all this stuff.

I haven't actually really played it much on a TV so far. Pretty much always in portable mode. I got a start kit from Game when I bought it and it came with clip on 'armour' I guess you could call it for the Joy-Cons and they are incredibly comfortable to hold for long periods. Case is not bad too but you can't fit the adapter in.

Do you know if you can use a standard phone charger or portable charger to charge up the Switch? I've got a Pro controller so the USB connection is there but I'm just worried about voltage/ampere amounts.

Oh and my friend code is 5490-9968-4880. I'll probably add a few people this evening for Mario Kart.

Got Rocket League free with Plus but never gave it a chance or even tried it as I can't stand football. Is it worth playing if you have a dislike of footie ? Got £4 in my eShop wallet so would only cost me £11.

Tomorrow may be the day I get a Switch (though it'll get put away for christmas). Got a chunk of stuff to chop in at game so will only need to find about a ton. One question, Lego Worlds and Rayman or Mario Odyssey? Those are the two current bundles.

Imagine buying either of those games over Mario.

I like Lego Worlds on the Switch! But, yeah, Odyssey would seem to be the prime choice :) .

Yeah I'll go with Mario myself. You can get other two for "cheap" (and most likely to drop the price, whereabouts Odyssey I doubt it'll even drop the price at all for very long time)

Why not try it out on PS if you already own it, before spending money on the Switch version?

It's a fantastic game though, liking football or not shouldn't come into it.

I looked into that when I first got mine, but couldn't find a definitive answer.

First thing is that it needs to be USB-C. And the Switch apparently requires 15V/2.6A to charge.

Inconclusive info here:

I personally wouldn't risk it unless someone verifies a safe setup.

Stayed up to midnight to download it last night only to find out Nintendo had scheduled maintenance until 2am and the eShop was down :fp:

Downloaded this morning before work, looking forward to trying later.
