What is the best option for a controller I can use wirelessly in tabletop mode? Tried playing Puyo Puyo Tetris with my son yesterday on split joycons and it was awful. Is an 8bitDo one best?

If money no option, then the Pro of course. Otherwise, 8bitdo is acceptable. I found it a little too small, personally, but others love it.

Ideally I'd get more Joycons, as it is mainly for Tetris. So I can use the 8bitdo on tabletop mode yes? I don't need it to be docked?

I thought you didn't like that, or is that just when they're split? You could get joycons and the dog face holder thingy, so you've two of those.

Just them being split, too fiddly for Tetris, with only half a Joycon and forced to use analogue. So I'd get a new pair and a holder, but £70+ is out of price range. £35 is much more acceptable for the 8bitdo.

Just download the Famicom app and get all five games. Fire Emblem might be difficult in Japanese but I imagine Yie Ar Kung Fu is fine.

I've only played about three FE games and one of them was the Musou. I know nothing.

Fancy a new game but can’t see much that takes my fancy. Last thing I got was Wargroove which I initially enjoyed but found it too lengthy and boring long term. 

 

Is there any new(as in last 6 months) must haves?

Smash Bros Ultimate. It's great, and I don't normally like Smash.

Been playing 2P Diablo III in the office and the setup is ridiculous :lol:

 

• Switch

• Dogface adapter

• Mini dock from Amazon

• Power adapter

• Mayflash NS (Which is amazing BTW)

• USB hub for the NS (because the HDMI and USB ports are too close together)

• Wired Xbox 360 pad

• Headphone splitter

• 2 x wired headphones

• TV

 

So many wires!

Don't you need a rooftop terrace for that?

 

No, an outdoor basketball court works just as well.

What's a Mayflash NS and Dogface adapter?

The Dogface adapter is presumably the thing you put the two joycons into to make it feel like a normal controller, which looks slightly like a dog.
