Faulty joycons...

 

We had one repaired when it was 4 months old (within warranty). The replacement has now developed the same fault after 10 months. The warranty on the Switch will have expired by now, any idea what Nintendo are likely to do re the repair?

 

Crap time to happen - the website says they are doing their stock take so it’ll be 3 weeks and with the lockdown I imagine it might just not happen or be even longer than that. The boy will be upset :( 

 

edit - what’s the fix you can do yourself? And I think I’ll call them in the morning to see if they can say what the deal is

What’s the fault?

Oh yeah sorry, the stick drifting thing

That’s WD40 contact cleaner sprayed under the skirt, isn’t it? 
 

Not to be confused with the oil.

The art book is great, not looked at the jigsaw yet.

My AC switch is coming today. I'll be transfering my accounts over from the old one. Does anyone know if the sd card data is account tiedorf machine tied? I suspect the later which is a ballache but fine. I only need to download AC today :)

Ah, cool. So the AC Switch doesn't come with a preloaded digi copy of the game, then? Or does a transfer magically not delete the game?

 

Edit: Why am I not googling this, it's a pet hate of mine that people ask questions on the quiet forum instead of typing that question into google for an immediate result. :D I see it's a download code that's included, that's good.

Sorry, I just bought a Switch lite and had a rant about the amount of faffing about there is to link an old account. I got it sorted anyway. How about that Tetris 99 eh? I also like the amount of Nes and Snes games there is.

 

I bought Xenoblade 2 also, it looks fantastic.

 

Carry on.

Great choices, welcome to the best console (family) ever made :)

I'm very impressed with it, been playing xenoblade for hours now. And believe me I fucking hated the Wii U.

There's a demo of Disaster Report 4 on the store. I appreciate that I'm probably one of a small minority that loved SOS: The Final Escape and Raw Danger on the PS2, but this is a sequel to those for anyone interested. :omg:

Thanks, I've always wanted to play one of these. But - morally - is it okay to close Animal Crossing?

Just buy a second Switch. One for AC, one for everything else.

Got a review code for this. Will be jumping in after the weekend. Never played the previous titles, but looks intriguing.

It's a proper old school release. It was apparently completed on the PS3 but never released after the 2011 earthquake. Even back then it was quite a dated game. But the running and screaming from collapsing buildings is a lot of fun.

I know I’m being a div but I’m really struggling with profiles atm. 
have 1 main profile where I do all purchases and all the kids use it too.  They don’t have own profiles. 
Just bought minecraft and can’t seem to play split screen without another different profile that has its own online account - what am I missing?

 

i set up a second user profile but can’t link to existing main account and I’m literally loosing my mind. 

Come on you lot - I bet you all know the answer...

Had a big switch moment there. Was watching some Hotshots Racing stuff and thinking "I'm 100% getting this for the switch"

 

I've been asimilated.

Multi/switch question that I’m hoping someone can answer...

 

I’ve got a full size switch and tomorrow I’m picking up a lite. Myself and the two kids have profiles on the main switch. 
 

If they both want to play Animal crossing at the same time I believe I need to buy a copy for each machine. Presumably if I’m buying digital it needs to be done on two different profiles. I’m making the assumption that you can’t buy the same game twice with the same profile but not 100% sure of that. 

 

But... can the kids swap switches and still get access to their own save? Or do they need to stick to the switch they first play it on?
