  1. One of my son’s switch joycons has drift, and both of my Xbone elite controllers have had drift. Cheap sensor pads in the analog modules are the issue.
  2. There are a lot of people that just don’t comprehend what a vile thing it is to tell an American citizen to go back to their country. It’s enraging, and you all know that I’m not a fan of the targets of that garbage.
  3. He’s a good value proposition for big money donors. Bundling $100k for him gets you much more access to him than the same amount to Biden.
  4. There are two types of trailers, teasers and full, though these are pretty squishy distinctions.
  5. All the Craig Bonds are very much like the other works of the directors involved with the possible exception of Spectre, which didn’t have as much Mendes-y flair as I would have expected after Skyfall. There doesn’t see to be any basis for your claim that it is stunt casting beyond your feeling that it must be that.
  6. Same thoughts from me. Disappointing more than anything.
  7. It is really a slap in the face to one of the most talented people in the business today to suggest they have compromised their artistic vision for a cheap round of headlines. As though a major franchise like this even needs the help!
  8. That isn’t the argument. First argument: There are people who want smaller and/or cheaper options for the device and this device opens up customers who want those things and wouldn’t buy the current iteration based on price and/or features. Second argument: The people who are deciding between the second model of a video game system for their home aren’t in a situation where $100 is a lot of money. These are people with meaningful amounts of disposable income, unless they are living way beyond their means and putting things on credit cards they can’t afford. These two arguments have no conflict.
  9. It’s a size thing. None of the projectors match overall image quality of the OLED panels.
  10. It is for many people, none of whom are wringing their hands over buying a second copy of the same video game system for their household though 😂
  11. Which it all comes back to “They made a product that’s not for me and thus it sucks “.
  12. Being disappointed with a product is fine. I don’t think that is what the discussion has centered around to this point, but I accept that you’re simply disappointed with it.
  13. It isn't. They are grasping for something to be outraged about because somebody has to be outraged about everything
  14. The solution is simple: Kid B should buy the device that has the features they want, like dockable play, instead of whining after they bought the cheaper model with less features Keyzer is a dummy, so I get his difficulty understanding such a basic concept, but I don’t get why normal people are struggling.
  15. Popeyes red beans and rice is one of my favorite fast food things.
  16. If only they had a model that could be played either docked or undocked. If only.
  17. It’s one thing to be disappointed that a product doesn’t fit your wants or needs, as I said before I don’t want handhelds and the Switch is a less powerful system because of the portability angle. What I’m challenging is the notion that Nintendo is making a bad decision because they didn’t make a device you or I wanted. Making a variety of models and price points to meet the wants and needs of a larger number of customers is good for the business and consumers. Stating what feature set set you would like to see in future revisions is also fine, and if enough people want such a device Nintendo probably will make it.
  18. You’re fixated on price. Price is not the only potential cost here. Your assuming they could make the same device with the option to run it in docked mode based on your gut instinct. Neither of us know that, but we do know the Switch runs in a lower power mode in handheld than docked and as such the hardware requirements do change to achieve the higher demands of docked play.
  19. You are assuming that there is no cost to the handheld experience (not just in terms of $$) with regards to the design/engineering of this smaller handheld only version. We don’t know what keeping the dock option would do to the design of the device, it’s cooling, power draw, battery size, etc. Going back to my very first post in this thread, this al comes down to the typically whining when a company dares to make a product I don’t want. Me personally, I’d rather have a stationary switch with no portability and as such this mode is way off of what I’d like,
