Oh god. Just picked up my Switch for the first time in ages to download Mario + Rabbits SoH and after holding and using a Steam Deck so much recently I'd forgot how small and light it is. Love it.

 

And a few hours later I've bought an OLED!

 

But... what's the best way to migrate? I have Nintendo Online so have cloud saves but I'm guessing I should still perform a transfer to make the new one my primary right?

 

My biggest fear is my Animal Crossing save. They didn't used to go in the cloud? Is that still true? Does a transfer move it across?

There is a transfer app just for Animal Crossing, I believe.

Alan Wake has dropped. Can't find any reviews on it but I've bought it anyways. Hopefully the performance is good, Will look great on OLED if so!

 

Edit: Stuttery FMV, frame drops, blurry and missing textures all in the first 15 minutes. Ack!


Probably not the best time to tell you it’s currently £1.50 on the Mexico switch e shop

Errr, I fucked and bought a yearly family subscription from Game at lunchtime. The regular family yearly sub. Which I can’t use as I currently have some weeks left of an annual expansion pass. What do I do? Obv. I’ll sell it on here (for less) if I have to write it off otherwise.

 

Wait until your expansion pass expires? Those codes are valid for a while.

Anyone tried the ifixit or other 3rd party replacement sticks? I'm not sure if mine qualify to be fixed for free again, they've already been done once.

 

These drifting joycons are a bloody scandal.


Not iFixit, but some other third party jobbies recommended on here from Amazon, which unfortunately are no longer available. 
 

Same reason as yourself - I followed the iFixit guide to replace them, perfectly doable, and touch wood they’ve been fine since. 
 

I also replaced the main board - that was trickier, but not completely impossible!

Aye, I did it a couple of times on my kids consoles before it was possible to send them to Nintendo.

 

I got some that looked externally identical to the original sticks, from an Amazon UK seller. They weren't OEM (unless the original base design had been revised by Nintendo), but they worked perfectly - and looked identical once fitted. These are the ones I bought from Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07S61YG4D

 

It's straightforward enough to install them, it's just a bit fiddly reattaching the ribbon cables and putting everything back into place.

I can’t wait/hope we get GC at some point. So many classics and hidden gems. 

 

Like Mario Party 4? And Mario Party 5. And who can forget Mario Party 6 the crowning achievement that is Mario Party 7.

 

Emulated old Mario Party games seems like an odd sell. Like wouldn't you just buy and play the latest one (given that other than the original the two Switch games are in the top 3 MP games on Metacritic along with the original).

How did the Switch port of Super Mario Sunshine work in the absence of analog shoulder triggers?


One of the shoulders was half press, the other was full press. Sounds horrible but it actually works better in some cases.

There is a Island Transfer Tool you can download from the eShop, but word of warning: you need an active user account on both Switch's to use it.  I found that out the hard way, and while I decided to take it as a challenge to rebuild (perhaps even better!) I can still visit my lost Island in a dream... -_- and see myself walking around it in that shirt and pants combo I haven't managed to get back yet. :hmm:

Ahem. I have let my family sub+expansion pack expire. What is the cheapest way to do it again? :)
 

edit. I can buy a 12 month family sub from cdkeys for £22.99, which saves a tenner. Could I buy two of those, stack them, and then convert the whole two years to the expansion pack on Nintendo's site?

arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh

 

Spoiler

yes that's it, there'll be a little left over that you can pay either with credit, paypal/card or coins but it should be in the ballpark of £1.50 give or take.

Thank you, that’s what I did and it came to £1.67 - so overall saves about £12. I got confused because I had a family sub which expired in two years and then the expansion reduced it to a single year. I was wondering whether you can stack the expansion pack but obviously you can’t.

Yeah I wonder what would happen if you stacked three and then do the conversion. They’d probably charge you nothing to upgrade but that’s it, be interesting to know though.

Has anybody any experience with an USB repair service? My brothers lite won’t charge despite trying lots of different home remedies and whilst there are a fair few online adverts for replacement of usb , I want to make sure it’s a service that won’t utterly brick his console.

thanks

That absolutely would not work at all with F-Zero. :lol: Both the triggers are just as important for cornering (if not more important) as/than the analogue stick itself.

 

They could do GCN emulation, but they’d certainly have to omit a few titles.

Just noticed my online sub has lapsed, heh. Had the expansion pack, but I’m not sure I’ll even go for that again. I don’t really play online, didn’t play the N64/Mega Drive stuff beyond a little dabble, and I haven’t played much of the Mario Kart DLC. Seems silly to just pay for it by default I guess?

 

Not even sure why I need the bottom sub then - for online saves maybe?
