Haven’t touched my switch for a while but it did have a lot of use from the kids and after 5 days I can say I’ve found the solution to use for joycon drifting.
I found this in screwfix in uk and it absolutely works. Move the stick to the left or right and squirt a little under the rubber flap on to the ball tip of the stick and 360 the stick for a while (30 seconds) then let it sit.
Enjoy. Just in time for Mario Maker. This should also work on the pro controller.

Sorry if this was already known. I was just super impressed

I’ve used a cloth because laziness and it seems to work for now. I’ll try to remember to update on the situation if it stays like this.

@1UP_MARIO Thanks!! I’ll check if Lowe’s has some this weekend in case I need it. I knew of the solution, but nothing ever mentioned a specific cleaner brand so this is wonderful.

@HobbitGamer Joy con drift was the reason I bought a pro controller. Tried many different solutions and brands and this just did it’s magic. You can even lift the rubber skirt under the joy con stick with the straw to spray.

Really hope it works for you and others

@gcunit They better. We're 2+ years in. We should have SNES and N64 games by now. I'd say Gamecube but that will never happen.

Nintendo considering extending Switch Online library beyond NES

I mean, nobody's surprised, it's stating the obvious, but at least they've finally stated it.

Absolutely, it is exciting that Nintendo acknowledges the existence of something beyond NES games for NSO, if you're a casual Switch owner. But for the core audience like us it's similar to the Switch Mini situation. It's not a matter of "if" but "when". 20+ SNES games were discovered in the NSO code months ago.

September's most likely month for SNES to convince people to keep subscribed.

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is getting a full physical release just like Final Fantasy X/X-2 and Final Fantasy XII. That’s so awesome.

It’s already up for preorder on Play-Asia, both NA and EU versions. And while I have seen them post listings for games that don’t end up getting physical releases, I have never once seen them actually open the pre-orders and start selling the game unless it’s 100% confirmed coming.

Hype.

Meh, I'd exercise caution. Firstly, Square Enix hasn't officially announced the physical release. Secondly, Play-Asia has notoriously opened preorders for physical releases that never materialize (Phantasy Star Online 2, Masters of Anima, etc). Although there is some credence towards FFVIII Remastered getting a physical release because Gamefly also has it in their "upcoming" list. I'm just saying...don't be surprised if you get a refund and an apology from Play-Asia.

P.S. - Just as an aside as more proof to my point, Play-Asia is still taking preorders for N.E.R.O. and Warhammer 40k Deathwatch. The physical release for both of those games were officially cancelled months ago.

It's a shame about Wumpa Coins being online only, you need a lot to unlock stuff and I like playing CTR in both modes (handheld and docked).

So glad I bought the Octo Expansion. This is great. It's essentially the Splatoon version of New Super Luigi U.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Oh, I’m not actually ordering from there. That would be a waste. If the game is getting a physical release I’ll buy it in my own region with 20% off at BestBuy via GCU and another 6% back with their CC.

But to your PS, even if they are still taking orders for those games, physical versions were actually in the works. Those were real, actual physical versions that were coming. They may have canceled the game and they still have the listing up but the point is those listings were not just made up for a physical version that was never actually planned.

I’m sure there’s one or two examples that exist out in the ether where that’s not the case (because there always is), but I follow their listings quite often and while they put dummy listings up for every big game in all three main regions, 99 times out of 100 they don’t actually slap a price on it and open preorders unless it’s legit and coming. Otherwise they usually leave off the price and label it with a “coming soon” tag.

Oh my gosh, the string of excellent Switch releases continues!

God Eater 3 isn’t the only impressive surprise from a visual and performance standpoint (and just outright fun), but Dragon Quest Builders 2 looks WAAAAAAAAYYYY better than the first one did on Switch. Like, WAAAAAAAAYYYY better. If I wasn’t any wiser I’d think I had turned my PS4 on by accident.

Seriously, the lines are so sharp, all those jaggies from the original DQ Builders game... gone. Super crisp and high res, handheld too. I’m flabbergasted. I’m honestly not used to this level of quality with 3rd party Switch titles.

We all know that as time progresses, graphics and performance improves on any given platform as developers better learn the hardware and accumulate experience. Mark this day. The release of Mario Maker 2 time frame will go down as a hallmark turning point in the quality of 3rd party Switch releases. Today is the day we start noticing games looking better.

Agreed I enjoyed the dlc more as well, better design of levels and simpely more fun

Managed to complete Persona Q2 just in time for Mario Maker 2 arriving via Amazon delivery It took me 80 hours! I remember why I enjoyed the first Persona Q so much.

I'm about five hours into Super Neptunia RPG, I've really enjoyed my time so far. The script for the VO is really quite hilarious. The combat system is similar to Fallen Legion although a bit more simplified. The music is wonderful and the game is gorgeous.

The only downside is the game's engine, Unity. There are moments where load times between zones can seem slightly long and frames can drop during combat due to what I assume is a memory budget issue. But it's not unplayable. After first impressions, I like Super Neptunia RPG as much as I did Battlechasers: Nightwar.

@Magician
Just got the game myself. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite do it for me. And I can’t really say why. It just... didn’t grab my interest that much. But no regrets. My biggest joy in video games is experiencing new things. I absolutely love buying games from series I’ve never played before and just diving in. Some I like, some I hate, but it’s the thrill of finding out that’s so addicting.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 and God Eater 3 are perfect examples of games I’m now enamored with from series I don’t traditionally play. Unravel 2. Trials Rising. Darksiders Warmastered. Valiant Hearts: The Great War. So many excellent games I’ve discovered from branching out into various genres.

But Battle Chaser’s Nightwar is on my list to play. I hear it’s from the creator of Darksiders, and as I just mentioned that’s one of my top titles released on the Switch this year (and there’s been a lot).

Does any content from the Dragon Quest Builders 2 demo carry over to the main game, or is it like the first game's demo that didn't?

I'm thinking about not even trying the demo, because I already know I'll buy it so why spoil it?
