My lads switch has drift in the thumb stick , such a floor , already replaced right now left , bloody peeved tbh
Instead of replacing try laying a thin piece of cardboard/folded paper in between the thumb stick metal plate and the battery tray- its shown that a little pressure on the rear of the thumbstick unit can help keep the contacts in their working position!
You can test the theory before dismantling by squeezing the joycon behind the thumbstick when in collaboration setting!
Hope this helps
Stig

Has anyone purchased the new Mario Kart expansion tracks and are they worth buying?
I have them in the expansion pack, not super impressed with the first tranche. If you play multiplayer online they should be selected occasionally. Still a lot more to come.

Well, less than 4 months it's taken for the Nintendo Switch to be gathering dust. The kids think the games are boring. *sigh*

Anyone tried the new Sports game?
I've been tempted but having 3rd party controllers only here, I can't see it being as responsive as the proprietary ones.

When you say 3rd party controller, do you mean a traditional gamepad?

Cus Switch Sports only supports joycons and nothing else.

I played it during the open trial, it seemed polished but too reminiscent of the earlier games for me. It's getting mixed reviews, but more content is coming I may pick it up when its super cheep.

Yeah, how do you have a Switch without the included joycons attached :hmm:

I bought just the switch off ebay last year very cheaply. Then bought a few of the Gioteck joycon pairs that ASDA were clearing out for £5, a £15 charger and a TV hdmi/USBc cable off amazon for a few quid.

I’ve given up on Nintendo , I just feel so shafted every time I do something for my son, even he isn’t fussed at all , and the joycons are a joke at best ,,, he only drags it out for car journeys

Bit late to the party on this one, but I've only just started playing pinball on the console.
If anyone spots one available that's not ebay prices please lmk, I've seen there's a fair few 3D printer designs online for a comparable portrait experience.
I got an alert to say these are back in stock, both US ($15) and Europe (€16) stores. I would have bought one but I find the Switch screen too small for Pinball, much prefer playing on my 10" tablet.

***OLED Switch is NOT compatible with Flip Grip***

Well that didn't take long to change my mind! Seeing as you can get them delivered from Europe I've ordered one, £18.80 delivered assuming I don't get any unexpected customs charges.

I'm not really one for console gaming anymore, I sold of quite a bit of my retro collection a few years back (NES, SNES, megadrive, Dreamcast) alhough I did keep the consoles and a few games for each one.

I bought a Switch 2 months or so ago and I'm suddenly completely obsessed, mostly with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! I totally suck at it but it's so addictive. Anyone else here got a Switch and what games are you playing at the moment?
Try pinball fx many tables are discounted weekly

Also like the Lego games

Switch currently sent off to Nintendo as it simply died ( had to laugh as my wife told my son about sending it away ) he shouted out “ bloody Nintendo tax” he’s only 7 , think he learnt that from me
