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

I haven't watched the Xenoblade 2 Direct yet, but I did spot this:

Quote:
In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Blades are artificial lifeforms that bond with Drivers to lend them their weapons and powers in battle. Main character Rex is a Driver and Pyra is a Blade. To help familiarize fans with main character Rex before the game launches, a new Side Quest will be available via a free update in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game for both Nintendo Switch and Wii U systems, in which players will be able to obtain a Rex costume starting on Nov. 9.

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

So I'm a little bummed. I went to use my Splatoon 2 Pro Controller for the first time last night with Super Mario Odyssey and noticed that the left stick was having issues. I could put the controller down and Mario would start walking all by himself. I tried to re-calibrate it under the system settings menu and even un-paired and re-paired it and that didn't fix the issue either. Can anyone recommend anything else? If not I don't have a choice but to return it but that thing is long sold out, so I'll be stuck buying a regular black one instead.

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

Iím really surprised Nintendo didnít release a special Mario edition Pro Controller. I know they did the bundle with the red Joy Cons but I easily would have bought a Pro Controller with some Mario printing on it.

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

Reviews of Doom are starting to come in and itís sounding like a good port. Graphics sound like theyíre good but obviously wonít match the other versions of the game. Seems like the gameplay is solid. I might pick up a copy.

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

I tried playing on the PC but I'm too used to the old versions and I couldn't get used to having to aim up and down. Is there an auto-aim option that can be toggled?

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

Might have to grab one of those. I have more than enough space for now but thatís a good price and just to have itís worth it. Especially considering one of the games Iíd like to grab (LA Noire) requires a 14GB download.

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

So are the left and right joycons very easy for anyone else to disconnect from the system? When playing in handheld mode, I can lightly press on the the bottom of a joycon and it will slide out. I don't even need to press the small black release button. Is this normal? My daughter has actually disconnected it a few times while playing when she presses the joystick upwards...

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

Doesn't seem normal. I've never had the issue. They seem pretty securely fastened until I press the release button.

Mine are definitely secure. Have to push the button and pull a fair amount to get them off.

okay, thanks. Maybe I will give Nintendo a call. It's pretty annoying in handheld mode.

Is there a way to move software from the on board memory to a memory card?

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

My wife and I bought the Mario Odyssey bundle for our son for Christmas. This is our first time buying any new gaming system in years.

I've seen people mention getting a Micro SD card for additional storage, but I'm curious to know if it is necessary to get one right out of the gate.

It's probably not, the only reason I got one was because of the Best Buy sale. Odyssey and most first party titles are really really good at minimizing the amount of extra stuff you need to keep on the internal storage, barring stuff like DLC. It's mainly if you want to buy a lot of games digitally (and even then the first party games are pretty small), or if you buy a bunch of third party games.

For context, I bought several smaller digital games (Blaster Master, Alex Kidd), downloaded some demos, and bought a larger digital game (NBA Playgrounds) and Mario Kart digitally, and the only reason I had to start deleting stuff was because Koei for whatever reason needed a lot of space for their fire emblem game. But when you start off, the default should be fine.

edited to add: Ok, just checked, there's 32 GB of space(which you can't use all of) by default.

Mario Kart full digital is 6.8 Gigs.
Puyo Puyo Tetris digital is 1.0 Gigs.
Odyssey on cart takes up only an additional 101 MB.
Splatoon 2 cart: 597MB
Zelda: BOW cart (no DLC): 351MB
Wonder Boy digital: 886MB
Blaster Master Zero digital: 321MB
NBA Playgrounds digital: a whopping 9.6 GB
Fire Emblem Warriors cart: a whopping 2.6 GB

So yeah, unless you're buying a lot of digital games or third party games(I think the still-unreleased-in-NA Dragon Quest Heroes takes up more than the available 32 gigs digitally) you should be fine. Even BOW digital takes about 13 gigs only.

Nah. Super Mario Odyssey is less than 6 gigs in size, so you won't be anywhere near the limits of the internal capacity on day one. If you're primarily picking up Nintendo's first party games and plan on being all-digital, they're pretty tiny. (ARMS is barely 2 gigs, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is under 7 gigs, Breath of the Wild is ~13 gigs, etc.) It'll be a while before you need any additional capacity. If you're planning on mostly buying physical copies of games, you won't need an additional card at all.

Okay, thanks guys! At the moment, we are going strictly physical so it looks like we will be good.

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

Yeah, I've been using my Switch a lot since I got it a little after launch. I haven't needed to expand the storage yet, though I do have a 128gb microsd handy just in case.

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

Yeah, Iím buying a Micro SD for the future but I still have like 24GB left. Though a substantial amount of that will get eaten up when I install Doom and if I get LA Noire down the line. Iím buying mostly game cards though which are mostly self contained. My only downloads are Mario Bros. and Sonic Mania.
