  1. Yes. Specifically, the left Joy Con had connectivity issues if you had anything blocking the path between it and the Switch. I do believe this has been corrected though. There were no issues with the right Joy Con or the Pro Controller. I only use the Joy Cons when I use the system in handheld mode, and if the Joy Cons are attached directly to the Switch, you shouldn’t have any problems. The problem is I don’t think there is a good way to tell which Joy Cons are good and which are bad.
  2. Heads up, everyone, the season pass for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is currently on sale on PSN for $4.49 (normally $29.99). You don't even have to have PS Plus in order to get the deal.
  3. Mark Brown posted a great video on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze a while back I thought was worth sharing now that a Switch port is inbound in a few months. Have a look. Honestly, if you’re not subscribed to Game Maker's Toolkit on YouTube, you’re missing out on one of the best gaming-related channels out there.
  4. Yeah, the Forza Horizon 3 update looks real sweet. Like they said in the video, the only real sore spot for me, is the lack of a 60fps option in the visuals. Everything else sounds fantastic though, and if they can get it running a rock-solid 30fps, that's good enough for me. I've been (finally) playing a bunch of FH2 and have been loving it. I had purchased the game a couple years ago, but never got around to playing it much until the Xbox One X came out. It was always preempted by some other game I wanted to play first. I bought the complete add-ons pack while it was on sale over the holidays for about $30, so have the "complete" game now with all the add-ons and car packs, including Storm Island. I will definitely be picking up Forza Horizon 3 at some point in the next year though. I'll probably wait for a price drop or a sale. If I can score the complete add-ons pack again for a good price, I'd be willing to get that as well.
  5. The Duke, the original Xbox controller / doorstop, returns for $70 in March (hands-on) This really does seem like a labor of love for Blackley. I'm glad to see it come to fruition. I think these are good changes to the original controller overall that will make them better to play with modern games. The original Xbox controller (particularly the S model) got a lot right, but the lack of the bumper buttons in favor of the black and white buttons was a real misstep in my opinion.
  6. Wow. Glad I didn't get it then. I have the demo installed on my 3DS, but never got around to playing it.
  7. Any game that doesn't make use of the Wii U Gamepad would be a strong candidate for a port, methinks. Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and Yoshi's Wooly World all fit the bill in this regard. Smash Bros. does too, but like you said, they may just do a direct sequel instead of a port. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they did just port over the Wii U game much like they did Mario Kart 8 and include all the DLC content. That would be the easiest, cheapest way to get a Smash Bros. game that on Switch, and they could definitely charge a full $60 for it. While we're on the subject, I wouldn't mind seeing Pikmin 3 come to Switch as well. For that matter, and HD remaster of the first two games would be awesome as well. Oh, and isn't there supposedly a fourth one that's already practically done being developed now? How 'bout we get that on Switch as well?
  8. Yeah, between the extra Joy Cons ($79.99) and a second dock ($89.99) you're already more than half the way to getting another system all together. The only downside is that you would have to purchase digital games twice--one for each system-- in order to play them on both consoles.
  9. Coming to Nintendo Switch on May 4!
  10. Honest Trailers weighs in on the Xbox One.
  11. Yeah, I flailed around a lot trying to learn to timing of it all at first. I think it wasn’t until I got the courage up to go after a Lynel that I started to get the hang of it. Even then, I didn’t execute it perfectly every time. The combat in this game is tough.
  12. It's either X or B, whichever button you decide is the jump button. Basically, if you just out of the way of an attack at just the right moment, time slows down and you can unleash a flurry attack where Link can strik the enemy with several blows at "normal" speed while everything else is still moving slowly.
