But, looks pretty nifty! 4k upscaling for a switch with no modding and it's plug'n'play.

Really improves the (lack of lol) anti-aliasing by miles too!

I ain't paying extra for superflous pixels when Standard Def is - let's be honest here - absolutely fine.

Ponyo / Storybots / Pokémon series on loop in low definition is just as good as high definition.

I have no idea what my telly is or isn’t capable of. It outputs pictures and sometimes sounds. That’s enough for me!

Another baffling decision, just like when they decided to not include the ability, for a small number of GameCube games, to transfer/copy your save from one memory card to another and so your save was locked to one memory card forever.



It's to stop hacking of the save data. Debatable how necessary that is for AC.

People have still got hacked Pokémon into the games thouh, I've even seems raids being hosted for legendaries for older games.

All it does is punish legit players. I understand if they don't want you to redownload your Pokémon save all the time because of duping etc. But why the strawberry float couldn't they just let you back it up and then redownload it once every 6 months or something?

Then you're still protected if your console goes tits up. Makes absolutely no sense.

I've 600 hours into Pokémon and Nintendo seemingly doesn't think the potential of losing that progress is a problem.

It's not like Pokémon bank even helps as any Pokémon you upload to it can't be used it game, so if my console did die I'd lose my most used Pokémon :fp: bunch of idiots.

Picked up Cosmic Star Heroine for like 2 quid. Didn't realise it was made by the same people who did Breath of Death and Cthulu Saves the World.

Very good game, that. Not played BoD or CStW. Should get to them.

My brother bought a Switch Lite two weeks ago.

It's already drifting. :dread:

Yup, arranged a repair yesterday. I'll have to drop it in to a post office for him at some point.

Bloody ludicrous that they're still having this problem after two hardware revisions. I've never experienced this with any other controller in all my years of gaming, and this is our third instance in as many months.

Yeah it is ridiculous, if it was out of warranty I’d be suggesting the electrical contact cleaner method but as it’s still well within warranty he’s better off just replacing it.

I'm sure he'd be able to send it back to Very for a replacement no bother, but then he'd lose his Animal Crossing save he's poured a ton of time into, because Nintendo gonna Nintendo. :roll:

Yeah usually I'd say go back to the shop rather than using the manufacturer's warranty, but the save data debacle means Nintendo are the better choice (and even then it's a risk :dread: )

Don't envy the people who spend all day every day fixing joy-con drift, anyway... I imagine that's 90% of Nintendo's repair issues now!

It doesn't back up Animal Crossing saves. See a couple of pages back.

Edit: in fact it's on the last page. Cloud doesn't back up AC, Pokémon or Splatoon 2.

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