    Nintendo Switch

    I went on holiday and just took the charger from the dock with me. It would have been easier to use my Anker battery pack but I'm so wary of bricking the thing by using the wrong cable or an incompatible charger that I thought I'd best play it safe. It's all so needlessly complex in the way that only Nintendo ever really seem to manage.

    Splatoon 2 - Octo Expansion AVAILABLE NOW

    Bought Splatoon 2 in the sale this weekend, first time I’ve ever played it and my word this is a fun videogame. (Even if 75% of my playtime has been spent experimenting with different motion control configurations... I will get to the point where it feels natural, dammit!)

    Buying games on release in 2018

    I find the way in which Switch games hold their value to be quite reassuring, really. I know if I pay full price for a game at launch, that’s what it’s worth, and if I buy it a year from now, that’ll still be what it’s worth. So I can buy on day one with confidence. With other platforms, no matter when I buy something I’m immediately seeing it appear in a sale or on PS+. It means the perceived value of everything is less and you’re perpetually left feeling like an absolute mug for wanting to pick things up on release.

    I started Disgaea 5 last week and I won't be playing much else for a very, very long time. It's immense.

    OK, well, much to my surprise, using the wrist strap attachments has resolved my connectivity issues. Do they act as additional antennae or something? Anyway, problem solved, it would seem.

    I assumed no-one used them. They’re pointless and a pain to get on and off, especially if you’re reattaching the joycons to the Switch afterwards to charge.

    Tested further and it appears to be simply a line of sight thing. If I block line of sight to the console with anything (e.g. my leg) then it starts acting up. If I have my hands out in front of me then it all works fine. They must have really cheaped out on the strength of the Bluetooth transmitter in the joycon for it to be so easily obstructed like this. Thankfully the Pro Controller works fine, but at this rate I'm going to have to buy a couple more of the things when Smash Bros arrives. I'm not sure I can rely on the joycons as multiplayer controllers like I was hoping to. EDIT: actually I wonder if putting the wrist strap attachments on them would make them any more reliable. Might add some distance between the transmitter and my hand, maybe. I'll try later and see if it helps.

    Yes, good point, I did update mine a couple of weeks ago so that’s almost certainly it. Seems to be only the right joy con in each pair for me. How frustrating - but hopefully fixable.

    Has anyone had any connectivity issues just lately with their joycons? I was playing last night and both sets were having issues just from me sitting on my sofa, maybe a few metres from where the Switch was docked. Button presses wouldn’t register consistently or would register with a delay. Sitting closer or pointing directly at the Switch seemed to resolve the issue, and my Pro controller was absolutely fine. I’m absolutely certain this hasn’t happened before. Latest firmware update perhaps?

    Pokemon Go

    I think Pokemon Trainer Club is down. Logging in through Google seems fine though.
  11. Same basic mechanics and gameplay loop, but (mostly) different and more monsters, different locations, some additional weapons and the addition of special moves. It's a lot more than subtly different.

    Arctic Monkeys New Album

    It’s been a while since I disliked an album as much as this on first listen. What a load of self-indulgent bollocks.
  13. Well I’m totally onboard with this. Played the hell out of MH3U and MH4U but skipped Generations so this will be a real treat. No problem going back to the older games either - loved MHW but like many folk eventually ran out of stuff to do. This is going to be great.

    All this talk of third-party docks bricking Switches has me concerned. In terms of simply charging the thing, am I OK to use an existing phone charger or do I need to use the official Switch charger? I’m going on holiday soon and was planning to use a Samsung USB-C phone charger, but obviously don’t want to damage the thing.

    Yeah, that’s my biggest problem with it so far, you’d think a single subscription would at least cover all accounts on a single Switch. As it is I pretty much have to buy a family subscription at nearly double the cost even though it’s just me and the boy who use the thing. Also, NES games, again, FFS.
