@IceClimbers Well that was unexpected.

So, how long before first Breath of the Wild Speedrun using the Bongos or a DDR Mat?

That's odd. Nights of Azure 2 isn't showing in my play history. At first I thought it was a bug, but then I found a post online speculating that "they expect you to feel ashamed playing the game".

Which I don't really understand. It's not like it's a Senran Kagura game, and even then I wouldn't care if it showed in my history. Game doesn't seem any different than Tales. Why on earth they think people wouldn't want it showing in their playlist is beyond me.

I see you're always referencing "Tales" when talking about NoA2. What Tales games? I assume you don't mean the Tales of Phantasia/Symphonia/Graces games or do you?

So can someone explain to me why Nintendo feels the need to do so many game exclusive directs this year? Like, what's so important that can't be condensed and shown off in a 45 minute direct along with information on other games?

15 minutes dedicated to a phone app and nothing else is ridiculous. There are other things that could use some focus right now, like BotW's second DLC pack lacking a release date among other things. A functional browser? The much anticipated Virtual Console? They've been so quiet about some of the improvements the Switch could use right now. I'm not saying they shouldn't focus on key games before release, but they certainly shouldn't make game exclusive directs with little to no mention of other information on other things.

Eh, I'd rather a focused direct I know I won't be I retested in than a general direct with 15 minutes of stuff I won't be interested in.

Talk about DIYD; DIYD. If they'd stuck a 15 minute video about Pocket Camp in a bigger Direct nearly everyone would have cried. They produce a specific one, that you are not obliged to watch or pay any attention, and you moan about it.

They'll announce stuff when they're ready. If they haven't announced it, please assume that they're not ready to.

Use the 'ignore' button, it works.

The GC controller functionality in this update is very likely just getting ready for Smash.

Hopefully they also re-launch the controller adaptor....

Yeah, those game specific Directs are great. I can always watch the ones that interest me and get a deeper insight, or just skip the ones that don't interest me like the 3DS and mobile game ones.

@SKTTR
Oh, I guess I have. I was thinking Tales of Berseria, the most recent one. They're not identical but, it sure feels similar in mood, tone, main character, plot (both die and are brought back to life as a "half demon"

And the games are about equally as good. Actually I think I like Nights of Azure 2 more. But generally speaking they're both solid B grade JRPG's.

Just wondering, do any of your joy-con wobble when attached to the Switch? The right hand side moves quite a bit and is annoying me slightly. I could buy new ones and hope that fixes it, as it doesn’t look like anything is wrong on the console side.

Gamecube Controller support is great, but for handheld makes little difference. If official Switch-cube controllers were released, I'd be on them quicker than a jump to lightspeed.

There is a demo for Sonic Forces available on the Japanese Eshop, I'm downloading it now. Just go to the Coming Soon section and you'll see it. It's a 537mb download.

Edit; Well that demo certainly hasn't sold the game to me. There are 3 sections to play, a 3d Green Hill section, a 2.5d fight with Robotnik and 2.5d Chemical Zone section. Each one has a demo timer so you don't get very long before seeing a "Thanks for playing" screen. It was long enough though to tell me I'll be giving this a miss, regardless of reviews. Other than Sonic Adventure, 3D Sonics are not for me.

@Hughesy The first Switch I bought, the left Joy-con wobbled and creaked, was very noticeable. I took it back to the shop and we tried new Joy-con on it and it was still the same. I managed to exchange it for a new console and it was fine but recently I've noticed there is slight movement on both sides. I think it's the rails on the tablet that are the problem rather than the Joy-con.

I think Fire Emblem Warriors is my new on the go Switch game, played it for about 3+ hours in handheld mode and the battery only decreased from 97% to 27%. This is the smallest battery drop with that kind of usage for any Switch game I've tried in handheld mode. For comparison, games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, BotW and ARMS have gone from 100% to less than 5% in about 1.5 hours.

I've noticed the neon red (R) joy con feels a little loose compared to the neon blue (L) joy con when I play my Switch in handheld mode. I don't know if it's always been that way since I bought it back in April since I mainly play my Switch docked anyway. It's not too bad to where it feels like a major problem yet.

@Hughesy Yeah, mine feel a little loose too - maybe it was a design choice to ensure that the Joy-Con slide on and off with ease?

I tried The mummy demastered but I don't like it. It's quite frustrating, to the point that it's not fun, and I don't like the music that much.

I used to be a ripple user like you, then I took The Arrow in the knee

Hughesy

@NaviAndMii Possibly, but as it doesn’t happen to everyone I’m not sure. Anyway after posting I noticed a thread about fixing it. It worked, just a few layers of electrical tape and it worked great.
