Mario + Rabbids is a must buy.

Also consider Captain Toad and Tropical Freeze.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Now, games aren't such a priority as Smash Ultimate comes out next week and that is going to monopolise my time. I am keeping a list of physical and download games that interest me though, which looks like such:

Physical
Super Mario Odyssey
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Octopath Traveller

(less desired but still wanted)
Splatoon 2
Arms
Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Digital
Celeste
Enter the Gungeon
Golf Story
Actually countless more that I can't name off the top of my head

Main thing I'm interested in asking, are there any accessories I should look into getting? I reckon a case is likely for travel purposes, what about screen protectors and things like that?

Am loving this console by the way. Very stylish and easy to use, and that docked/portable functionality is an absolute dream. :wub:





I´d recommend a grip if you find the console uncomfortable in handheld mode. Can get glass screen protectors easily / cheaply, had one on since I got the console. You might want a micro SD card if you're getting bigger games digitally, but you'll probably be fine without one with the types of games you've listed.

The Pro Controller is excellent, and my preferred way to play.

Games-wise, if you play in local co-op, you might like Snipperclips. There's Mario Party too (haven't tried it though), and a recently released MP Joy-con bundle. Pokemon is good if you like them, and Mario + Rabbids always gets mentioned. Plenty of demos to try, including Arms and Octopath (the Octopath save data carries over to the main game too).

Did you own a Wii U? If not, there are lots of excellent ports (Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong, Captain Toad, Hyrule Warriors, etc.).

I never owned a Wii U. Some of those ports are of definite interest (not Hyrule Warriors as I did get the 3DS version of that), things to consider for next year. Outside of Odyssey/Octopath/BotW, I consider most other games as being properly on the back burner unless they turn up at a great price. I don't really get a lot of proper gaming time these days so am going to hold fire on building a large library of games. Again, unless they appear for great prices (though with some being Nintendo titles, ha unlikely).

Yes to Mario Rabbids! If the Gold Edition goes for as good a price as it did recently I may look into that as my post-Smash purchase. I ideally prefer to have physical copies of games if I can help it.

If you never owned a Wii U then I’d say Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a must have as well (time/budget depending of course), easily the best version of Mario Kart in my opinion!

I’d say Mario Odyssey and Breath of The Wild go without saying though, personally I’ve yet to properly click with Octopath but I reckon I’ll give it a go for the third time in the new year, you might click with it from the get go though. Pokémon Let’s Go might be on your radar if you’re a Pokémon fan. Mario and Rabbids is superb, wasn’t expecting it to be anywhere near as good as it turned out to be.

Sadly I can’t speak much for the accessories, only ones I’ve bought are a screen protector and a case for the Switch for when its not sat in its dock. I keep pondering a pro controller but I have no issues with using both joy cons in the provided grip, does a perfectly fine job for myself.

Forgot to mention that my bundle did come with some Paw Patrol game. Going to punt it to CEX today, likely for cash as having checked instore they don't have much of interest to me to make me take store credit.

I found a screen protector really useful, but opinions differ. I noticed that the dock was making tiny scratches on the left hand side of the screen even though I was being super delicate when placing it in there. I bought the below and had zero problem fitting one first go:

Anyone tried that Fitness Boxing demo? Saw there was a competition to win the game in the newsletter so I figured I'd give it a go. They say you need to send them a picture of your workout, but when you play the demo the screenshot function is disabled :slol:

Also, I think my joycon might be dying again :dread: Same joycon I've already had replaced! Playing Pokemon Let's Go and I can't run upwards unless I click the stick? :? And it seems to have a much worse wireless connection than the other joycon. Kept dropping the connection playing boxing... Concerning.

This game is strawberry floating awesome so far. A few flaws, but I'm really enjoying the gooseberry fool out of it.



Also, this is a jaw dropping bit of music.

Bought. Thanks for that! Was nice and easy. Does Eshop credit expire once activated? And do I have to avoid switching regions now to avoid losing the credit? Or is that only applicable to residual cash on an account region?

Doesn't expire, but you would lose the credit you have if you change region.

You can have separate accout from different regions, each with their own credit.

Any bought Horizon Chase Turbo? It got Nintendolife eshop game of the month for November and it sounds like it would scratch an Outrun itch I've got at the moment. But Outrun comes out in the next few weeks so I don't k ow whether to wait.
