  2. Digital Foundry seems to think so. I saw this game literally 2 days ago on the store and thought it looked vaguely interesting but a little too much like your typical mobile-inspired voxel game. A few seconds of footage from this video (I have not watched it further than that) were enough to convince me to give the game a shot.

  5. It's not been a deliberate thing, but I just realised the VAST majority of my Switch library is made up of indies. Just in 2019 I have bought Wargroove, Downwell, My Time at Portia, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Cadence of Hyrule, Friends of Ringo Ishihawa and Graveyard Keeper. I haven't bought a 'big budget' game since Pokemon Let's Go. Maybe it's my age, and these games often remind me of the stuff I played when I was younger? Maybe it's the convenience of the eshop? The stuff EA, Activision etc. is putting out just doesn't interest me these days it seems. Am I the only one?
  6. I have no idea what Scarlett is, or what PS4 Pro Pro is and I just want some old fashioned Marioness. I see Switch for $300 generally and if I get one a friend of mine is also planning to get one and he's asking questions and I don't know since I gave my aunt (cousin really but older than me) my Wii U (she collects game systems and older games) and kind of moved on from Nintendo for a while. Looking at the sales stuff on Amazon and such I still have some questions. I'm not finding any recent "get to know the switch" type articles that show me what I want to know so, here I am. What I want to know is : 1. Is there a cost for playing online and how much if so? 2. Storage seems tight so what are best storage options? A 1 TB MicroSD is a few hundred bucks according to Best Buy so any alternatives? 3. Is keeping the controllers charged a big deal or a hassle and should I get a charger and if so, how much? Will I likely want some other alternative controller or are the two slide on mini controller good enough for most players? 4. is the main unit durable? 5. Is the dock durable? 6. Does wireless work reliably? 7. Any know common troubles getting the thing on wireless 8. How does Online co-op work? Is it easy to link up to someone you know? Are there many games that use this? Thanks for any info you can give me. Again this is serious list of no bullshit not a trap questions I have.
  7. Dragon's Dogma will definitely find a home on Nintendo Switch. Dragon's Dogma is getting a fresh chance Dragon's Dogma is nearly identical to it's PS4/X1 counterparts Reviews Nintendo Life 8/10 "There’s no denying that it is rough in parts and really could have done with a full remaster rather than a straight re-release, but Dragon’s Dogma nonetheless remains a fantastically gripping role-playing experience that manages to straddle the divide between exhilarating real-time action and stat-based adventuring." Game Revolution 4/5 "If you’ve never played the action RPG before, then this is a great place to rectify that and it provides an easy way for veterans to sink some hours into it while killing time on commutes." Nintendo World Report 8/10 "Dark Arisen has some of the most unique systems in modern RPGs, and great combat to go along with it. It’s a great adventure, and if they can improve the loads after the inns it’ll be essential." App Trigger 7.5/10 "Though lacking the polish you see in AAA open-world RPGs, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen boasts an incredibly deep class and a battle system that makes for potentially dozens of hours of fun and at a great value for what you are paying. "
  8. Up until now, I have been using my Switch without an SD card, and it has not really been a problem. I generally only keep the 3-4 games I currently play downloaded, and redownload stuff as and when I feel like a change. My library is getting quite big now though, so I think it's time to get a micro SD card. Do the read \ write speeds of these really matter, or should I just buy the biggest one I can afford regardless of speed?

  10. Nintendo Co. plans to release a new version of its Switch videogame console next year to maintain the sales momentum of the device, according to suppliers and others with direct knowledge of the plan.
  11. So this is the game Panic Button hinted at... Good to see all these big FTP games getting ported! Not got a date for it yet.
  12. I am guessing not many people have done this yet, so I thought I'd make a thread to let you know how it went. Before I sold my old Switch, I remembered to unlink my Nintendo account. This is done from the settings menu, and is really easy. It is very important to do this though, otherwise you will need to contact Nintendo to transfer your account. When I started setting up the new Switch, it gave me the option to link my account to the new console... However when I tried to do it, it was not possible until I had updated to the latest firmware. Once this was done all I needed to do is open the eshop and the option was there again. All I had to do was enter my email address and password and the account was linked in seconds, my friends list and activity appeared. Re-downloading my games also seems easy. Overall it has been a simple process, I was worried it was going to be far more complicated, because Nintendo... The only downside is that I lost all my saves. Once the paid online is up and running with cloud saves it won't be an issue, but I was out of luck. My 3 saves on Stardew Valley, with 350 hours of game play put into them, are gone... But it gives me a reason to start again!
