Mario Kart looks incredibly good on the small screen. Better than Zelda.

Hardest Wipeout setting has nothing on easy setting of Fast RMX... Hence I f@*#}~! give up on it. Even when you actually finish 1st it doesn't feel rewarding. It feels like a chore has been done and the next race is another hard day's cleaning at the miner's urinal. Gorgeous game, great handling with tracks straight out of Wipeout. But the learning curve and rubberbanding is set by a sadistic nihilist.

I have gold medals on all my Wipeout games on all settings... Fast RMX? I'm not even even on the medium tracks yet... Totally regret paying £16.99 for fast stress.

On the plus side, now I can open Mario Kart 8!

Super fast review of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Good:
  • Solid version of classic Tetris accessible with a single button from the title screen.
  • Solid version of classic Puyo Puyo accessible with a single button from the title screen.
  • Reskinnable Puyos for the colour vision impaired. :awe:
  • 40 million different gameplay variants and mixes of Puyo Puyo and Tetris, all of which can be played online or in local multiplayer.
  • Unlocks are for cosmetic changes only.

Bad:
  • UK version doesn't come with the nice keyrings the USA one does :mad: :problem:
  • You can't disable voices without disabling the rest of the sound effects.

Felt stupid buying it again but at least MK8's Battle mode is bloody great.

2 months in, anyone having any issues with their Switch? My JoyCon have been connecting fine, no dock scratches on my screen protector, WiFi behaves though does seem weaker than other devices. I also like the fact that the JoyCons wear in really quickly.

Only trouble I've spotted is with the locking mechanism latch on my left JoyCon, which is either worn or was damaged when I messed up the +/- handstrap. While it still locks in to the console and grip fine, it's not as secure as the other - it can be pulled off without needing the button pressed.

Nah it's been fine. Dock is used a lot by kids and there are no scratches. Nath said he had a joycon disconnect a couple weeks ago.

Nath put one of the joycon strap things on the wrong way round (all the way until it overlapped). Just pressed the unlock button and slid it off.

I can't fault it.

Only had it for a few weeks but no problems. Some small scuffs from carrying it around without a decent case but that was to be expected.

Same, no issues either ,like you say cools WiFi seems weaker but have had it upstairs opposite side of house and it still works on(no concrete walls to go through though).screen protector has no scratches either .
Still need to get out puyo tetris and convince myself that I need to get mk8 again.

I have to say it's been decent so far with a steady flow of games so far

I wasn't going to rebuy MK8 at full price but it was £37 from Amazon with their £5 off £40 of video games offer. Just low enough for me to bite.

I do hope their new online "experience" will have better ways to communicate in games like mk8.
