Anyone else having issues with swapping buttons? I’m trying to swap jump and crouch around and despite showing as changed the buttons remain the same. B IS MEANT TO BE JUMP!

@Jawessome
Which game are you playing?

I heard Borderlands 2 was having that issue, while Borderlands 1 and PreSequel are fine. Also heard the FOV was not available in BL2 like the other 2 games. And that aiming felt different than the other two?

Also heard it was the only one that didnt get updated to the latest version along with the other two. So Idk.

Maybe all that is in a day one patch that mistakenly didnt go live for BL2 while it did for the others. Maybe some other ppl can help shed some light here.

I'm still waiting on my physical copy so I can download BL2 and PreSequel. Right now all I have access to is BL1.

Yeah - BL2. Haven’t tried any of the others. You’re right - there’s no FOV setting at all either.

Aiming is certainly twitchy now that you mention it. Coming off Overwatch. I remember Vita’s being the same. A little janky. Ive been using the joycon while away and tonight I’ll continue with my Hori Splitpad which just craps all over the joycon as far as comfort and precision go.

Borderlands 2 is one of my favorite games, so this was an easy sale for me. Performance is great, and Borderlands 2, at least, looks as good as it does on the PC. I'm sure there are some graphical differences, but they're not obvious. Of course the toon-shaded aesthetic and flat lighting certainly helps a lot.

I'm curious about the missing FOV slider in BL2 — hoping it gets added in a patch — but as far as the controls, I have no complaints and I don't notice any difference between BL2 and The Pre-Sequel (I didn't get BL1; after playing BL2 for so long, BL1 just feels so slow!). It was difficult to get used to playing with a controller after using mouse-and-keyboard for so long, but it's starting to click with me.

Open new SD packaging. Do not insert into the switch to format. Do not format on PC. Do absolutely nothing except copy your data onto it from the old SD.

Then insert it into the switch and power on. It might take a minute for the cloud icons to disappear but all your games will be there and register. I’ve done this multiple times as I upgraded from 256 > 400 > 512 > 1TB

In my experience, if you format first and then copy the games will not show up even though the data is on the card.

I upgraded my SD-card a couple months back from 64GB to 256GB (repurposed from my digital music player), and I had no problem with formatting it. Just make sure to use FAT32, and it should be fine. I don't think the Switch will recognize any other file format.

Was wary about these games at first because of how bad Borderlands 2 was on Vita (I didn't buy it) and going by footage I saw it lagged like hell. I'm glad to hear that's not the case here. I'll wait for a Sale as I've played Borderlands 2 to death already.

Finally got my copy of Borderlands Legendary and tried out BL2 and PreSequel.

So, its true BL2 is the only one without an FOV slider. Its fine though. Would be appreciated if they update it, but maybe this particular game had performance issues with wider field of view.

Controls, however, are excellent. Different than BL1 and TPS. Because FOV is more narrow than the 100 I set it to in the other games, the gyro and sticks feel more sensitive. Turned sticks down one notch and gyro on 6 or 7 as opposed to the 10 of the other two games. Works beautifully.

Aside from that, ya. All these games are near flawless.

Anyone played Boarderlands and Bioshock. I was considering Bioshock then I watched a few reviews for Boarderlands and now I'm on the fence.

Any suggestions 👍

I only dropped into this thread to applaud your username and avatar. Zool rules!

I've not played the Switch versions of either. I played Bioshock 1 and Infinite on 360. Got bored of Bioshock 1 because of the shouty man. Infinite I dropped after about an hour and just never went back. Not sure why but the gameplay didn't grab me at all.

Oh, and I'm fairly sure it's Borderlands. Boarderlands would probably be an open-world tribal surfing game.

@DevlinMandrake yes Zool was one of the first games I ever played, its about time it has a remake.

I am thinking Boarderlands. I just read that the physical copy (which I would buy) of Bioshock has no resale value because a whole game is not on the card, the rest is a download. 🤔

@zool
I remember playing Zool with my brother when we were kids. It felt like a whole new world after James Pond 2: Robocod.

With regards to the thread, I think both of them require downloads for the full package of games. As does XCOM2, for that matter.

And it's still Borderlands. But I'm glad you're sticking with your version.

Are the issues in the game as bad as some people have made out? I've never played the borderland series but it does look like something I could very much get into.

@zool
Both Bioshock and Borderlands requires downloads as the file size for both is about 47gb in total (Bioshock Collection uses 16gb cart with 30gb download, Borderlands Collection uses 8gb cart with 40gb download). It’s impossible to fit everything on a cart for either of them even if they wanted. The only difference is Bioshock’s download is an update, meaning if you sell the game to someone else they can download that update just fine. With Borderlands, the first game is on the cart (minus DLC) and the other two are provided as a download code in the box, which will be your digital copy forever. Both can be resold if desired, but Borderlands 1 would be the only game the other person gets if buying that one, since the digital code would already be used.

That being said, they are both absolute masterpiece titles and the pinnacle of Switch ports. Borderlands Legendary Collection includes gyro aiming for all 3 games (Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The PreSequel). It’s incredible as either a single player experience or multiplayer, and can be played in either 2 person splitscreen, 1-4 person local wireless or 1-4 person online. It also includes native voice chat and in game friend invites which utilize the new system level invite feature on Switch.

The BioShock collection also has three games but they are single player, story driven experiences. No gyro aiming. Still amazing though and still 100% worthwhile. Also an immaculate port on Switch.

Both run at full 1080p docked, 720p handheld with a rock solid 30fps that’s a straight line across the analysis screen. Feels super smooth in both.

If I had to choose between, Idk which one Id go with. Maybe Borderlands, but only by the skin of its teeth, because Bioshock Collection is sooooo good. And BioShock games have golden film reels you can find scattered throughout the game world that unlocks developer commentary interviews which you can choose to view immediately or later through the menu. First one unlocked a 10+ minute interview from Geoff Keighly with Ken Levine and the Director of Bioshock.

Completely different types of games. I've only ever played the first Bioshock on PC when it was first released, and while I really enjoyed it, I only played it the one time. Great atmosphere and a reasonably interesting story (until about the half-way point, at least, where there's an awesome plot twist, and then the narrative kind of loses steam), but it's a fairly linear experience that doesn't have a lot of replay value in my opinion. Borderlands, on the other hand, is one of those games like Diablo 3 that has effectively infinite replay value. I've sunk a lot of hours into Borderlands 2 on the PC, and I didn't hesitate to pick it up for the Switch because I know what a great value it is. And, yeah, the Borderland ports are flawless. Really great to play. The controls are even better than Doom.

@JaxonH thanks, for the information, thats makes things clearer. I'm ok for disc space so that's not an issue. It does seem that both games are almost neck and neck, with Boarderlands just out front.

While I think I'll like the idea of playing Boarderlands more, I'm more curious about playing Bioshock.

With me luckily, I can afford to buy games, so I could buy both, but its finding time to play them all.

@JaxonH Thank you for this, that first paragraph is the information I was looking for, it clarified what I thought was the case.

Despite being dead against these originally due to not all being on cartridge, seeing how well they all ran (an the fact I never originally completed Bioshock originally anyway despite loving it, then owning the others on pc but not bothering) on Switch and seeing them for £30 each made me pull the trigger.
Them now being on my primary console should hopefully mean I actually play them now, of course we are all gamers here, so famous last words XD

@zool Time is always the killer, I doubt we ever will have the time to finish our backlog, seems a very real gamer problem. Always get attracted to the new shiny thing.

As for which one to pick, Bioshock would be my primary choice purely because I'm far more about serious story driven fps then crazy multiplayer fps, but I do totally get the draw of Borderlands and have enjoyed it from time to time, it's loot system is great.
I probably didn't need to get it but I think I'll try the first one again then perhaps sell the rest as like new if I don't get on with or really find the time to play, may do the same for Bioshock but have a far bigger drive to actually play that series XD

@Rosona ....and now I just read a couple of reviews for The Outer Worlds which looks good.
It's like waiting for a bus. Nothing for ages then three come along together.

Which ever one I get I'll wish I had got one of the others. 🤔
