Any other recommendations for good stuff. I haven't gamed for about 10 years so am somehat out of the loo. I have a preference for platformers, Doom type games and sport stuff?


Cheers
Ring Fit Adventure is good and a surprisingly intense workout if you push yourself. I'm reasonably fit, I ride and walk every day and I can work up a sweat on this.

The Doom games and Wolfestein are on the Switch. Check out other FPS games in this article:

For platformers, I love Hollow Knight, Shovel Knight, Celeste and Dead Cells.

Mario Odyssey is absolutely fantastic.

Check out these articles for 2D and 3D platformers:

My left joy con stick has started to drift upwards randomly. I know it was a known issue with early ones but thought I'd got away with it. I did read somewhere that Nintendo fixed them even after the warranty period but can't find no mention of it anywhere. I don't fancy sending it off to them only to be given a silly price for a repair.

I don't think the kits are too expensive to buy to fix it yourself, has anyone tried one? I've re calibrated and cleaned it with a brush just in case but it was no help.

Can’t you recalibrate in settings a few times?

Its only in US where you can get it repaired for free. We are out of luck here. Although I have heard of some people in Europe have success with getting a free repair, but not a guaranteed thing.

Annoyingly Nintendo haven't actually fixed the design and repaired/new joycons will develop the same problem again in future.

Mine drifts left and is an absolute nightmare in Animal Crossing due to the high sensitivity controls. Generally I wiggle the joystick which seems to improves things a bit.

That's how I noticed it, you go to dig or lay a path and it quite often missed the spot. At first I thought it was just a clunky game mechanism. Given the price of new Joy Cons and the fact that the issue isn't solved I may have to get a thumb stick kit and try a repair.

I've had my Switch for 2.5 years and about 6 months ago the left stick was drifting up quite a lot. I tried re-calibrating and cleaning with compressed air but none of that helped.

I ended up ordering a kit like this:-
Affiliated Link

And changed it myself. The kit came with 2 joysticks and all the tools you needed.

It was a pretty straightforward job, fiddly and some of the bits are quite tiny, but not that hard to do. The kit comes with a link to a Youtube video showing the process.

My right stick started to drift too a couple of weeks ago so I replaced that as well. Slightly fiddlier since that controller has a camera in it but basically the same process.

I ended up buying a kit and all is sorted. I'd like to say I did it myself but Mrs Bish has more patience than me

I'd say it is easy enough for anyone but like allan said it is fiddly and the tools supplied were fine for the job.

I managed to get a Ring Fit but I need to stop being obsessed with the brilliant What The Golf?
