  1. I've been trying to get a Nintendo Switch for one of my friends that was looking for one for a few months. I was finally able to snag one for her using www.zoolert.com and sending alerts to my phone whenever one would appear in stock at Amazon/Walmart/Target/Best Buy/GameStop. When they pop up, they will be gone within minutes so you have to act quickly. This is for the US versions of these websites so I'm not sure how feasible it is for someone in the UK to utilize this method. I have noticed that they have been popping up more lately so I think Nintendo's Switch production is finally starting to make a dent in the demand (reseller prices have been dropping too). Unfortunately, the Switch Lite cannot connect to a TV and it's not just a matter of it not fitting into the regular Switch's dock. The Switch Lite is missing the chip inside to send a video signal through the USB-C port. Nintendo could have just kept the price of the Switch Lite low by not including a $90 dock but they removed the internal chip too because Nintendo.
  2. On the left joy-con that was really drifting badly, I had to spray it again the next day too. As far as the stick feeling different, what I was talking about in my case was that when I would push the analog stick in a direction and let go, it wouldn't snap back to center. It would kind of slowly move back to center (I visually confirmed this behavior in the Switch's stick calibration menu). The contact cleaner got rid of that problem so the analog stick feels snappy again.
  3. Sorry for the late response. If you still need it, here's the video I watched (method #1): After spraying the contact cleaner, this video says to leave the joy-con to dry. I watched other videos and they said to move the analog stick around while it dries (which is what I ended up doing).
  4. I like the varied gameplay they showed. The art style is not my taste though.
  5. The last few months, the left joy-cons from my launch Switch and from a set I bought a few months after launch started to show some signs of drift. The last week, it got really bad and pretty much made them unusable. Wanting to pursue the easiest/cheapest fixes, I watched some YouTube videos and tried calibrating the sticks and cleaning underneath the rubber shield with isopropyl alcohol. Neither of those helped. Then I saw a YouTube video using WD-40 Specialist Contact Cleaner so I bought a can from Walmart for around $7. I used a toothpick to push up the rubber shield underneath the joy-con's analog stick and sprayed some of the cleaner underneath and moved the analog stick around for a few minutes. The drift is gone and the analog sticks feel like new again (less gummed up feeling). I ended up cleaning the analog sticks of all 4 joy-cons. I barely used any of the cleaner so I'll be able to clean the joy-cons regularly probably as long as they still function using just that one can. Anyway, if you're looking for a cheap solution, I'd give it a try. Here's a picture of the WD-40 I used
  6. Yeah I just saw this one Twitter: I guess it's better to get the island backup/restore functionality (as limited as it is) to help those people that need it (damaged/stolen Switch) but still very disappointing. I'm not sure why I'm really disappointed since the Switch's online service (see smartphone app for voice chat) and cloud saves system (that automatically uploads but doesn't automatically load or download) are so ass backward.
  7. Better late than never! I wonder if the backup/restoration service is more complicated than a simple transfer save from one Switch to another (like in Pokemon Sword/Shield) because multiple users on one Switch can interact with one island/save.
  8. I can definitely see how you'd want one with your collection of retro games and consoles. I only have a handful of games from the pre-DS era. I have way more Switch games than I can even play. I was thinking of getting into collecting GB/GBC/GBA games but I think that's a dangerous (for my wallet) hobby to take up.
  9. I was definitely going to preorder one but I think I'll just save my money for whenever the Switch Pro comes out. I have so many Switch games to play, including a lot of retro compilations like Mega Man, Contra and Castlevania that will satisfy my retro game itch.
  10. I had a micro SD card (PNY Elite 128GB) go bad on me. At first, it would error out whenever I tried to update a game or download a new game. Then, the Switch stopped recognizing the card. I've been using SanDisk micro SD cards ever since without any problems.
  11. I'm waiting for a Switch Pro. I haven't played my Xbox One in over two years and I haven't played my PS4 since my PSVR died a few months ago (for the last couple of years, the only game I would play on my PS4 was Beat Saber). The only thing I play all the time right now is my Switch/Switch Lite.
  12. Sorry to hear about all the troubles you're having. Your Switch Lite may be defective. My Switch Lite does not exhibit any of those problems compared to my regular Switch from launch. Everything else you said about Nintendo's cumbersome account sharing is spot on though. And with Animal Crossing's save being currently tied to a specific Switch (hopefully rectified soon in the next update), you wouldn't be able to get your Switch Lite exchanged without losing your save file.
  13. DKC is a nice addition to NSO. I finally bought Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for the Switch. It runs like a charm but man, that text is hard to read on my Switch Lite with my near 50 year old eyes.
  14. I have the Switch version. Some pros and cons: Pros: - Only portable version - Totally playable to me (I was never a big Overwatch player so take that with a grain of salt) - Might be easier for a beginner to learn to play on the Switch since it came out months, not years ago, and the player base is probably less experienced compared to other consoles Cons: - 30fps - You have to start over/no account transfer (for someone playing it for the first time, this wouldn't matter) - Physical copy does not include a cartridge (download code only)
  15. After probably over 100 attempts, I finally passed 4-4. The three back-to-back-to-back P-block sections made me want to rip my hair out.
