Snap! I just finished it too. Great game.

I also have Xenoblades Chronicles 2 on my unwrapped pile.

There is a big update dropping soon which adds more blades, NG+ and lots of other stuff. I'm going to wait until then before starting

Thinking maybe I'll go Mario and Rabbis...
Will look further in to Xenoblade - does it have a good story?

Looks good sofa/train gaming which is my main use for the Switch these days


NB. Kirby now has a demo if anyone missed it. Seems fine but not £40 of game... My prediction is this will (eventually) be the first Nintendo game for a price drop

I played the Kirby demo last night not having played one before and it made me put in a pre order. It looks so beautiful and just seems completely mental, I was struggling to remembered all the mechanics. Really looking forward to it.

I haven't ever bought so many games for one system in such a short space if time. Still haven't unwrapped Xenoblade 2 LE, Binding of Issac, Pokken Tournament, Monopoly. Got the Bayonetta Climax Edition earlier this week.

And this little beauty arrived yesterday.

Anybody getting Donkey Kong Country?

Never actually owned the game but always thought it looked like fun, so pre-ordered.

It's a very good 2D platformer though it does get very challenging. I think I heard they've added a bunch of modes/assists for the Switch version to help out with that though.

Will get it eventually as it looks great. But half my Switch library appear to be platformers so may wait for sale

Great! Hope we can finally have some kind of save backup system now.

The only way forward for the platform holder in fully securing the console will be to revise the Nvidia Tegra X1 processor itself,

Just got a Switch over the weekend from Facebook Marketplace for £200:
Switch (still sealed)
Mario Odyssey (still sealed)
Switch 1-2 (opened to put 32gb memory card in?!)

Traded in Switch 1-2 after playing it for 20mins... got £20 cash @ Game.

Then bought Zelda for £32 and Mario Kart for £30 2nd hand.

So £242 for brand new Switch, Mario Odyssey, Zelda and Mario Kart.

I've signed up to a month's free trial with Boomerang who have confirmed they are sending me Pokemon.
Not bad.

Not sure I like the size of the cartridges... they're tiny. Very fiddly with the flimsy flap. Not sure I trust my 5 year old with changing games yet.

Can anyone recommend a screen protector and a snug, fitted case that it can be played in whilst portable?

Sounds like a good deal.

I've got one of these

Screen Protector Nintendo Switch - Orzly Premium Tempered Glass [0.24mm] Screen Protector TWIN Pack [2 x Screen Guards] for 6.2 Inch Tablet Screen on Nintendo Switch Console

on my screen and it seems pretty decent. Comes in 2 pack as well which is handy. Also same price on ebay with free shipping if you don't havePrime.

Seeing the screen protector discussion made me think - anyone else make no use, at all, of its portable features? I took it into work to show it to interested people when I first got it and since then treat it as a desktop console.

It's just a little too bulky for portable for me. And I'd hate to damage it. I just use my 3DS for portable!


This is also possible influenced by the fact that I'm such a stereotypical gamer that I don't actually go out if I can help it

Funnily enough I thought I would use or loads in portable but don't really. Always worried I will damage/lose it or get stolen. My 3ds still lives in my rucksack.
