Nintendo Switch

Try on the Switch

I loved that about the DS Lite! Would close a game up and pick right back up from where I left off weeks later. On the 3DS? Depleted battery after a couple of days.

Yeah, might only be accessible on device, thanks Nintendo!

The emails started a couple months ago, I didn’t do anything to explicitly opt into them as far as I know.

This is pretty good. Thanks!

Has anybody played Lost Sphear on the Switch? Thoughts on the game? How’s performance on the Switch?

There seems to be a pretty good sale on it right now, thinking about picking it up.

I haven’t played it, but that’s because every other Tokyo RPG Factory game has been mediocre at best. I haven’t heard anything that would imply they’ve learned to be any better.

I lost interest and didn’t bother to finish… the demo. It gave off an overwhelming vibe of generic also-ran PS1 JRPG. Maybe it gets better, or maybe you’re feeling nostalgic for the likes of Legend of Dragoon, but I didn’t see anything that piqued my interest in the bit I played.

thanks, got the original Crypt of the Necrodancer and Jotun Valhalla edition … I am already building a backlog.
Also the Sw Lite is now my official Souls machine!

Haha wouldn’t expect anything less from this forum! ;)

OK, after 3 weeks I noticed yesterday night an issue with the left control stick during Golf Story. When I setup a ball, the aiming line/arc drifted on his own to the right!

it only happened when I made small adjustments with the left stick controlling the aim.

I went to the console settings stick calibration, and there I could see that if I do small adjustments to the right, the dot on the screen stays right of the center, causing a drift in game. It snaps back to the center if I nudge the stick a bit, but I could definitely reproduce it . Tried this with the right stick, but it was OK.

I thought, that maybe when I turned on the switch a couple of minutes before, after I inserted a new memory card, that the left stick was a bit off center, so I turned it off and on again, didn’t help.

I recalibrated the stick a couple of times and it looks like now I cannot reproduce it anymore. But a warning shot has been fired, thanks Nintendo! I will be paranoid now concerning the left stick …

Why is there no dead zone calibration and what does the included calbibration really do?

It’s a well known issue at this point. Seems to be a design flaw/material erosion situation. The good news is Nintendo is kind of owning up to it by allowing free repairs on affected joy cons, even out of warranty.

Unfortunately, new units continue to use the same inherently faulty stick design and will, inevitably, degrade. Until they change the design, they’re just throwing bandaids on the issue and forcing customers into an obnoxious cycle of returns :-/

oops, sorry, I meant to write I have this issue with the new Switch Lite. I hope it was just an calibration issue.

People are reporting the problem on the Lite also. I’d really like to get one but I’m leery of spending money for a console that’s going to have control problems.

It’s coming on the 18th!

Hooray! I’m there. Excited to play coop with my kids. They’ve been watching lots of YouTube videos to prepare.

Let’s hope that delay was only to aim at an Halloween release, not a sign of deep issues.

I’ve been taking the demo for Mistover out for a spin and have been really, really liking it. Basically, it is a chimera of Darkest Dungeon, Etrian Odyssey and the Mystery Dungeon games. Because I love all of those things, it is unsurprising that I’m having a really good time here. I may be forced to throw down 30 for this…

Thanks for mentioning this. Hadn’t heard of it before. Looks rather cool. Ofc, I’m only in the third month of fire emblem…

Oh hell yeah, thanks - this looks right up my alley, taking the demo for a spin now too. It’s on Steam also.
