Is there any benefit to having two straps? Like any games where two players play at once with the straps? That's the main reason I was considering the physical version.

Very interesting. I have to admit that the majority of my playtime on my Lite is for classic games. I'd love to try some of the Gameboy games I missed back in the day.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

If Iíve been playing a game with a physical copy and then download a digital copy of the same game will it pick up the game save when I start the digital copy to pick up all the progress where I left off?

I think it will, just checking to see if there are any gotchas with that.

I found it somewhat underwhelming but I don't play enough indie games as I should.

There are a couple of Switch deals today. Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Triangle Strategy are on sale for $49.94. I would get them if I didn't have a huge backlog of games.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

My Switch Lite that is barely two years old will not take a charge all of a sudden. I have tried different outlets and different charger cords but we don't get any kind of response. The power strip I had it on also had my CPAP machine which is fine, so I don't think it got spiked. Before we try sending it to Nintendo, has anyone had any similar experience?

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Was playing Switch with some people yesterday, and I found this on the ground, presumably from the switch or a controller - I dunno what...

Would any of y'all know what it might be?

That looks to me like the button attachment to the joycon, the thing that alters the strap length.

Yep, that’s exactly what it is. Strap for a joy con.

Thanks.
Went to snap it back in, but it had broken off.
Took out the other one just to see how the button worked, and that broke out too!
The plastic was all brittle and there were bits of it inside. I've honestly never used that strap adjustment thing.
What cheap shit! Between this and the drifting joycon sticks, Nintendo needs to step things up.
What's crazy is how they increased the price of the Joycons not long ago by 50 freaking dollars!

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

BTW, I dunno if it's just the stuff I have on my wish-list (of 80+ games), but looks like there's a sale going on for a ton of digital download games on the Switch store.

Jeff Grubb from Giant Bomb says that he's heard "pretty definitively" that the Metroid Prime remaster is going to be out in time for the holidays (and that 2 and 3 are basically done but being held for a later release).

Wait, what? The joycons are 130 bucks now?

And the reason I was able to identify that quickly is because mine broke too.

No, they're $80, and they used to be $30 to $35.

Nintendo made joycons were never that cheap.

Uh, what? No they weren't. For a pair?

If you were able to get joycons for 15 bucks a piece you were holding out on us, slop.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Ah. Maybe it was a sale, or it was $30 for one, which they don't sell one by itself anymore.

Something else they don't sell any more that they should are TV docks.
There are shitty 3rd party ones, but the actual Nintendo ones are all used and they don't make any more to sell by themselves. I wonder why.
