It's sat on my watch list, I'd also like to hear any opinions. The little I've read seems positive

Used youtube last night to put on Dr Katz, it works good

Think my left Joy Con is borked. It randomly spikes upwards in games, so for example playing Stardew Valley my character will suddenly start moving upwards.

What can be done?

My left joycon had some issues when I was playing Mario, I just moved the dock closer to me, and it seems to have sorted it out.

Sounds like what happened to mine, sticks drifting out seems to be a common issue

If you're in warranty, send it to Nintendo for repair (https://nintendoservicecentre.co.uk/). You can also send it there out of warranty, like I did with both my joy cons, but they wanted to charge me £29 per joy con so I had them sent back. When I got them back, they seemed to have been fixed anyway, but that fix didn't last long as after a weekend of playing one of the sticks started drifting again.

I bought replacement joy cons second hand and they are fine at the moment. My advice is to sell the joy con and buy a replacement

Maybe a can of compressed air?

I'm sure I read somewhere this issue was caused by dust/dirt getting under the thumbstick?

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

This could explain how mine seemed fixed but then started developing the issue again. I might try this.

Anyone picked up a pair of these? Tempted but wondered if anyone had any first hand experience of them


You can buy something very similar now. It plugs into the headphone jack and allows you to connect any Bluetooth headphones you want. I bought one for my stereo system, cost me under £15 from amazon. Rechargeable using USB and has 20+ hours of run time.


Cool - will do some digging :-)

Further to this conversation, saw this on Nintendolife

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/1 ... _on_switch



Seems to be £32 on Amazon which seems pricey, but the extra dock option and stuff might be worthwhile.

I read some of the Kickstarter one and it seemed to imply that the headphone socket with a Bluetooth adapter lessons the sound quality compared to their method. I'm sure there was more I do too.

This one goes in the usb port and also does some low latency stuff if your headphones support it(that I've no idea about). Comes with a headphone adaptor that is actually a mic too.

I couldn't watch the video posted, just thought I'd mention it. It's cool there are several ways to get various things connected so people can enjoy the switch in different ways.

I gotta highlight Starquake's superb use of the Switch's News Channel for his Hyper Sentinel game. I like the news channel although some developers make pretty light use of it... whereas 'Quake has put in an amazing effort. Right from when the game launched, he has posted a raft of hints and tips alongside a wonderful "diary" of the game's development that gives great insight as to how the game came to be. It's currently up to Part 20 and it is well worth a read; especially as it's in small, digestible chunks.

Bravo, Starquake - the best compliment I can give is that it reminds me of the "Diary of a game" series published in Zzap! 64 magazine :wub: .

What with Let's Go, Eevee! and Smash Ultimate coming, I had a look at how much space I had. Imagine my surprise when 3.6GB of my 64GB card was being took up by videos. I hadn't realised I'd still got most of them. I usually delete them once shared to Twitter. Obviously I hadn't been doing so for some time. I've now rid myself of most of them - all Mario Kart videos from the Monday sessions.
Still not enough in Smash Ultimate's case, so in the end, sacrifices have to be made. Bye, bye, Go Vacation. You probably won't be missed.

Probs worth noting that, if anyone has the money available at the moment, prices are currently pretty decent on micro sd cards. At Amazon, a Sandisk 128 Gb card is "just" £21.59... whilst a 400 Gb card is £101; still not exactly cheap but way less than it was just a while ago.

Oh, and just in case anyone uses a Mac rather than a PC, I've discovered that the data transfer process (i.e. copying the folder from one card to another) doesn't work on that format. I ended up re-downloading my stuff.

I'll certainly miss it in some regard, but next to Smash, a return to MHGU, and the host of other games, it will more than likely be forgot about with Starlink available to fill its role.

> MHGU

All is forgiven :wub:

We have weirdly similar tastes with the combo of mhgu, starlink and go vacation. Can't imagine it's a common mix :lol:

Thanks Jawa. Glad the diary reminds you of some of the old Zzap 64 diaries - that was actually the idea behind it :o

The game is launching in Japan and China in a few days. Be interesting to see what they make of it, as it’s a very old school British game at heart.

I’ll be announcing my next game in the next week or so too - with full gameplay video :toot:
