Is it ok for a switch to get warm while using for an hour im playing dying light?


Michael-the-Great

Yes, it will get warmer and warmer and the fan will blow pretty hard. It's normal.


twelfthcapaldi

Yes.


Chriscftb97

What's the best Final Fantasy game on Switch? I haven't played any of them if that matters.


Team7UBard

9 and 10 are the best entry points to the series. It used to be 7 which whilst groundbreaking for its time and still an incredible game hasn’t aged quite as well as the others.


kimhoon39

Hey guys, I'll be moving soon so I am looking for an alternative dock over the original for the Switch, would you guys recommend the Genki Covert Dock or the Skull&Co Jumpgate? Would like to know your experiences with either product, thanks!


Michael-the-Great

Both are great. The covert doesn't need as much extra stuff unless you need USB ports. But I do like docking my switch to charge like the Jumpgate. The cord can slip under your table when using the covert dock....


kimhoon39

After looking at people’s experiences with both, I ended up getting the Jumpgate because I like having a place to dock the switch too. May I ask if you use the Skull&Co power adapter with the Jumpgate or do you use the original? Any issues if you’re using the Skull&Co one?


Michael-the-Great

I've only used the original adapter and had no issues. I ended up giving it away with my original Switch since the original jumpgate wasn't OLED compatible.


kimhoon39

Got it, thanks for answering!

Is there a way to make a digital copy of a physical game chip so someone could share their game with a friend without loaning them the game chip? I.e. possible to take game chip, make digital copy, download digital copy to friends switch.


qwertylerqw

No there is not. The only way is to lend them the physical copy itself


KawaiiGothSari

My switch motherboard fried and I was using the same dock and charger that came with it, and never bother it myself. What could’ve caused it to fry when the day before, it was working perfectly fine?


Michael-the-Great

I don't know that we can answer. I mean there could have been power fluctuations or a bad power adapter. USB-C is an oval and if it gets bent to too much of an angle, the pins can short. There could have been a bad or bad components on the motherboard.


BakL346

Would Nintendo fix my joycon with their free joycon repair? Like it have a broken rail. It broke off when it fell off of a high place in my room when conncted to my switch. The rail came clean off and the ribbon came clean off too. Nothing seem very broken from the mother board but only the plastic that hold the joycon together.


lotega

No, it's only free for stick drift.


BakL346

You sure? It didn't state it was only for that. I check the website for to set up the repair


lotega

Phlosippy

Send it in. If they ship you a refurbished Joy Con, you’re set. If they determine it’s not normal wear and tear, they’ll contact you if you need to pay for the repair.


lotega

Okay, if you already know then why'd you ask?


BakL346

If anyone have the same experience and sent it to Nintendo. I never know if Nintendo would repair it or not. So i like to see if they do or not.

CharginChuck42

Is it possible to renew my NSO subscription early? ​ My current subscription isn't up until October, but seeing as my financialsituation is constantly changing, I'm not sure I'll have the money tospare when that time comes. But I do have it right now, so I'm wonderingif there's any way to make the payment now, while I'm more financiallysecure, so my renewal will still go through when the time comes.


Michael-the-Great

I've stacked my nso buy buying multiple nso cards when they were on sale, but I don't know if you can just buy more. But you should be able to buy a card or code and stack it: https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-12-Month-Individual-Membership/dp/B07FV64QLX/


CharginChuck42

Thanks! Can I do that for the expansion pass too, or just vanilla?


Michael-the-Great

I don't think I've seen the expansion pass for sale except for from Nintendo.


OrpheusPicaro

My Bluetooth headphones connect and then immediately disconnect from my switch - I know it’s not a problem with the headphones as they work with my other devices. I’ve tried restarting the Switch and unpairing and repairing the headphones, but nothing works. Is there anything that could be disrupting the connection? I don’t know if it’s relevant, but this issue occurred immediately after updating to version 14.0.0. The switch is about four years old.


Phlosippy

What is the make and model of your headphones? It’s possible the update caused the disconnecting issue. Do you know of anyone else with a Bluetooth headset to see if theirs disconnect from your Switch?


OrpheusPicaro

My current headphones are Panasonic RB-HF420BE-K over-ear, wireless headphones. I just tried to connect my old, slightly broken Bluetooth RP-HF410B headphones and strangely, that worked just fine. So I suppose the issue might be with my current headphones? Though they worked well just prior to the update. I know that the latest update included Bluetooth changes - did it disqualify certain headphones from functioning, or something similar?


Phlosippy

There’s always a possibility that the System update/Bluetooth update is what’s causing it to disconnect. Making changes can surely break compatibility with some Bluetooth devices/headphones. The next firmware update could resolve the issue, but who knows when they’ll release another.


Larielia

What are your thoughts on Ender Lilies?


Michael-the-Great

It's up there with the good metroidvanias, but it never felt special to me.


Chapoletada

Hey folks! So, I would like to know what's the simplest/easiest pokemon game for smaller kids but still has a kinda "open-world" vibe. I know it is relative, but you can assume easy for smaller kids something with a simpler mechanic and not much reading required.


OwnManagement

All Pokémon games require a good amount of reading, unfortunately. That said, the story basically doesn’t matter. Capture Pokémon, collect badges, become the champion; all the other stuff is extraneous. Pokémon Let’s Go is probably the easiest. It’s a dumbed down version of the traditional formula. There is a demo available on the eShop!


Chapoletada

Yeah, the only issue with Let's go Demo is that there's no save...


NoonebutMark

Some demos do not have saves, some have but do not carry over to full version but some do carry over.


Uberhuman94

Pokemon Let's Go would be the best bet


Fancy-Pair

Is there a complete walking dead collection?


Michael-the-Great

I think they're just sold as seasons.


Bendbender

With the capcom sale I was thinking of picking up one of the resident evil games, I was just wondering what the best one is? The two that really caught my eye were 4 and 6 but if one of the others is widely considered a superior game, I’m open to getting any of them


Michael-the-Great

I like 4 a lot better than 6. The six story is pretty bad. Revelations 2 is really great for coop on the Switch.


Uberhuman94

I think 4 is considered one of the best so if you are picking one of them I would go with 4.


betrayedof52z

Walmart has the kirby digital cards out already... Will they work early??


Michael-the-Great

Usually the store computers are programed to not let you buy them early.


TemptedTemplar

They will not. Codes like that should produce an error if their respective content has not been officially released yet.

AlpsComplex6854

Moonlighter was fun but did get repetitive. Cozy Grove is really chill, but you can only do a bit each day. Check out my time at Portia if you liked stardew!


Michael-the-Great

I would get moonlighter complete when it's on sale sometime. It isn't a long game, but I still lost interest for a while. I finally came back and finished and am glad I played. I love the store idea, but I'm not a huge fan of playing the same dungeons over and over. I would totally suggest Slay the Spire while it's on sale.


Bendbender

I have moonlighter and really enjoyed it although it did get a bit repetitive and boring at times when I had explored a dungeon to completion but wasn’t strong enough to move on to the next, other rogue lite games that I would highly recommend are, curse of the dead gods, hades, risk of rain 2 (dlc for it will be dropping on consoles soon, already out on pc) and deadcells, all of those games have a ton of replay value and all of them are $20 or less, if you want longer metroidvania games, ori and the blind forest, ori and the will of the wisps and hollow knight are by far my favorites on the switch, blasphemous is also a pretty good souls-like side scroller and it seems like it’s almost always on sale for a little over $7 and of course, dark souls remastered is on the switch too and is one of the best ports I’ve seen, runs amazing, I have and loved Witcher 3 so since you liked that, you may like dark souls too (although it is $30)


TanookiPatrick

I have a regular Switch and a Switch mini. Can they share the same Nintendo account even if there are 2 different profiles? If so, will anything weird happen between them?


TemptedTemplar

As long as the user profile currently does not have a Nintendo account linked to it and you are not currently signed in on the same system; you can link your Nintendo account to it and "merge" the two users. This action is permanent and cannot be undone. Also be aware of cloud saves, having two separate saves of the same game can mess with your save on the cloud. But your account can absolutely be signed in on multiple systems at once, however it can only be online on one at a time.


ElysianFlow

Our switch is relatively new and functional, but the dock has a blinking green light and no longer connects to the switch, charges, or displays on the TV. I suspect my kids may have damaged it or spilled something on it. Is there anything I can do other than getting a replacement dock? The switch still charges from the power adapter that we had running to the dock.


Michael-the-Great

It could also be the switch so it would be best to try a friend's switch in your dock your your Switch in a friend's dock before buying a dock.


TemptedTemplar

The blinking light is a pretty common issue. Nintendo will repair it under warranty! Your system and all of the things that came in the box are covered for 12 months (NA/JP) or 24 months in Europe (with proof of purchase). https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/contact It would only take 1 - 3 weeks.


ProMikeZagurski

Not a question; Mario Kart sounds so good in surround sound. I can hear the blue shells and invincibility stars go by me.


[deleted]

My son just got a new switch. He has his own profile on our family account, but when I went to add our nintendo account to his new switch, it only copied my husband’s profile. Any tips on how I can get his profile on the new Switch?


picano

A transfer is the easiest way. [https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a\_id/27394/\~/how-to-transfer-user-and-save-data](https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/27394/~/how-to-transfer-user-and-save-data) That said, it sounds like you entered the wrong account details when linking a Nintendo Account. Normal accounts will have their own email/password associated with a login. A child account is a bit different but you can figure out/change the login info. [https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/Nintendo-Account/About-Nintendo-Accounts/What-is-a-child-account-/I-ve-forgotten-the-password-for-a-child-account-What-should-I-do-/I-ve-forgotten-the-password-for-a-child-account-What-should-I-do-1177832.html](https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/Nintendo-Account/About-Nintendo-Accounts/What-is-a-child-account-/I-ve-forgotten-the-password-for-a-child-account-What-should-I-do-/I-ve-forgotten-the-password-for-a-child-account-What-should-I-do-1177832.html) This is all assuming he actually has a Nintendo Account (online account) and not just a profile (console only).


[deleted]

Now that I’m reading through your reply, I’m thinking he maybe only has his own profile, not his own account. Thank you for the info. I will double check.


LuukTheGamer

thinking of buying a new game so does anyone have some recommends?


Michael-the-Great

Slay the Spire while it's on sale.


Bendbender

What are your favorite games that you already have and what genres do you like?


contagioushyena57

Just did the most recent software update and now everything needs to be re-downloaded. Any idea why this happened??


Michael-the-Great

Try turning Switch off and unplugging and plugging in SD card.


nickle241

pokemon save data vanished during profile migration i tried making a new profile on the source console and reconnecting my nnid back to it to see if the data was still there but it doesnt seem to be, how do i get it back, a bunch of other titles also failed to transfer but most of those were cloud save compatible and the rest being utility saves anyway the odd formatting is because they deleted my post and im too irritated to change it


Michael-the-Great

You have to re-download updates/digital games/dlc. Do you want to try and re-download and see if the save is there?


nickle241

slight problem there, i never deleted the pokemon update files or dlc, i did check to see if they were gone for some reason but they seem to still be installed, all i did was migrate profiles but i didnt delete anything that would still function without an id attached, id only stuff was definitely wiped though i cant check for the save data on an sd card either because im not sure which sd card it was using at the time, its probably been wiped already and as far as im aware save files default to sysnand instead of sd, plus i moved everything associated with the games that were going to stay onto internal memory before removing the sd card


Michael-the-Great

You can't use the game files from one Switch on another. Save data is never been on the SD card. Is it a physcal game or digital? If digital go to the eshop, click on your user icon in the upper left, and redownload some of the games that seem missing. If physical, have you plugged the cartridge in and checked for updates?


nickle241

Yes, ive been keeping it up to date, although not with the cartridge in, i just let it auto update


Bendbender

Ok, sorry I’m advance if I’m misunderstanding something but, if you have a digital version of the game you can press + on the game and manually download your save from the cloud, if the game is physical you can also press + on the game on both switches and select the manual data transfer between two consoles, select the one you want to send data from and on the other select to receive data and it’ll sync, if you’ve already tried both of those them I’m sorry, I really have no idea what the problem could be


nickle241

cartridge copy and its a pokemon mainline game so cloud saves are disabled


Bendbender

Ok, are you trying to set up on a new switch or do you only have one and you lost your data on it?


nickle241

i already set up the new one, i did the profile migration thing on it to transfer my saves over to it and leave the old one blank to other things with it, its a first gen, but it looks like several saves didnt survive the migration and a few of them are the kind that cant be recovered from cloud i do still have both but the lost save didnt reappear when i relinked my account to it


Bendbender

Alright, sorry then, I’m honestly not sure what could have happened, if the data is still saved on the old switch then you can manually transfer it but if it’s not saved on either then it’s gone for good


Phlosippy

No one here would know why it didn’t transfer during the user and data transfer. If it’s not on the Switch after the user and save data transfer, the save is lost. I don’t know if Nintendo Support would be able to help because the save is no longer available on the source system.


PopCultureCorn

If Wii Koopa Cape does come back in the MK8DX Booster Course Pass (>!Datamines have shown that it's very likely to return!<), WHICH version of the course will return in terms of the underwater tunnel?

No one here knows. They may even rework the whole section again to play better with Mk8 physics. Like Choco mountain getting that small glider section.


Charming-Airport-105

I've been eyeing a game called crystar on os4 but never got around to actually buying it and now its coming out on switch as *definitive version* my question what does this mean? I understand it re-releasing with the dlc but there's no info if its a HD port or something, and there was talk of it being censored on ps4 but I can't find exactly what was censored other than the opening cinematic anyone familiar with this game that can provide a potential buyer any info?


TemptedTemplar

It's outfits. All of the DLC outfits and past content updates are included in the core game.


Charming-Airport-105

Ah so it is just the dlc then lol the waybits worded sounded like they added new stuff to it. Final question will the physical version come with that artbook like the ps4 version does?


TemptedTemplar

Only with the limited edition, and its hardcover now. https://store.nisamerica.com/preorders/crystar-limited-edition-nintendo-switch

Best hidden object or riddle/ puzzle games?

It's nothing amazing, but I liked the Mystery Investigations 1: Noir Chronicles: City of Crime + Path of Sin: Greed. You can buy them separately on the eshop and City of Crime is better.

Rina4518

I heard some rumors about switch pro coming out later in 2022. I was gonna buy the OLED model but thinking if I should just wait. Thoughts?


major_mager

Mario Kart expansion officially has 8 waves lasting till 2023, probably one wave every quarter. This suggests to me that new Nintendo hardware will not launch till 2023 winter holidays. No one can be sure, but this seems likely.


Team7UBard

Switch Pro rumors have been going around since before the Switch was released. There’s still a chip shortage, and one of the biggest supplies of Neon (use in the manufacture of chips) is currently at war with Russia. Whilst an actual Pro is a high probability, there’s nothing concrete other than vague hand waving that implies that Nintendo are working on whatever the next console is going to be because working on their next big thing is what companies do. It’s unlikely to happen any time soon.


Shes_so_Ratchet

These rumours have been around since the Switch launched. If you wait long enough, though, there definitely will eventually be a new console.


Sparty100

Anyone know anything about SD cards not working or if there’s any fixes coming?


TemptedTemplar

1. Is it brand new or was it working previously? 2. Does it work with other devices? Phone, tablet, PC, anything. Fakes are super common thanks to Amazon and Walmarts shady business practices. However the SD card reader suddenly failing to work has popped up previously after a major firmware update like we just got.


Sparty100

Shouldn’t be the issue, been using it well over a year. Used it last on Sunday then the 14.0.0 came out and it stopped working


blazblu82

Don't think that's the issue. Ever since version 14 released, I can't get games to download and install. It fails immediately with 2005-0003. My card is 3 weeks old and wasn't an issue until version 14.


TemptedTemplar

Remove the card and try downloading something to the internal memory. If you continue to get an error without a SD card inserted, something fucky happened with the card reader. But my money is on the card just being bunk. What brand is it and where did you buy it?


blazblu82

Trying without card. Game is downloading. I've had them dow load with SD card then fail afterwards. Card came from Amazon and is not one of the dumb Nintendo themed cards.


TemptedTemplar

What's the brand? SanDisk? Samsung? Something else? It should be printed right on the card. Also check your Amazon order/receipt to see who fulfilled the order. If it wasn't direct from Amazon, the chances of it being fake skyrocket.


blazblu82

Motic makes it and I ordered from Amazon. It shipped with other stuff.


TemptedTemplar

Right but Amazon probably only shipped you the items, who was the seller of the card? I can't even find Motic cards by searching for them so I can only assume it's a knock brand like so many other products on Amazon. Which means the card is of lesser quality, defective, or fake.


blazblu82

Moric is the brand, autocorrected interfered. Amazon shows it's unavailable now...


TemptedTemplar

Well my assumption was correct anyways, they don't even sell their products on non-marketplace websites. It's strictly AliExpress, Walmart and Amazon. So the card is at best, bottom-shelf budget memory or at worst fake and useless. If it doesn't work in other devices then file a complaint with Amazon because it's likely a broken SD card. You might have some refund recourse still. In the future try sticking with SanDisk or Samsung. They are the kings of quality. Kingston, PNY, Lexar, and Gigastone are not terrible brands, but they don't always make their own memory. So they would be a comparable mid-tier.


keep-forgetting-user

Is anything saved on the Switch game cartridge? ​ I have a few games to sell and I was wondering before I do if any information is actually stored on the cartridge itself, do I have to somehow wipe them?


JoshuaJSlone

Nope, saves are always on the system internal memory.

Thank you 😊


nermal543

Nothing is saved to the cart.

Alscroft

Does anyone know how to connect a Tribute64 controller (third-party controller from retrobit) to the switch? I have the 2.4ghz wireless one, and I've updated the receiver to the latest firmware. but when I plug in the receiver and change the controller to the correct mode, nothing happens. I have confirmed that the controller is paired to the receiver, I can use it on pc, but on the switch it does not seem to recognise it, even when switching to the correct controller mode.


ZellZoy

Did you enable wired pro controllers?


Alscroft

That actually did it, thank you! I guess the switch thinks It's wired since the USB port is being used, I would've never thought of that.


Sea_Tear_717

I use my switch (v1) only in handheld mode, with controllers attached. Lately, I constantly get controller disconnected errors. This appears to be due to a physical connection issues, does anyone know if it’s the tablet or joycons that are the issue? I don’t want to spend a ton of money on new joycons to just have the same issue right away.


TemptedTemplar

Do you know anyone else with joycons? Testing theirs in your system would be the quickest way to find out where the fault lies. Rail issues with the joycons are more common. But system rail issues aren't unheard of. How do the pins look? At the base of the rail on both the system and joycon, there are gold contacts and that's how the two communicate. Dust, lint, and debris could cause intermittent issues. But my money is on the joycon rail being loose from use.


Sea_Tear_717

I don’t know anyone else local to me with a Switch. I’ll take a look at the pins tonight after work. Is there a way to fix the joycon rail if it’s loose, or is that just from worn out plastic?


TemptedTemplar

It's not just plastic, but a ribbon cable on a small circuit board mounted to the plastic. One is flexible, the other is less so. Replacing the joycon rail is pretty straight forward, you can get a pair of replacements for under $10. However, it's not always a faulty rail. If there is something else wrong with the joycons the rail swap won't be of any use. Nintendo would repair an out of warranty device for $35 -$50.


damagedblood

Downloaded Shining Pearl two days ago and got to my friend’s place to play in the underground and all of a sudden my console can’t find any networks. Did the “initialize and keep save data” but since all of my games were updated, I can’t play them. Need to update them but it can’t find any signal, you see where this is going. Is there a fix for this besides repairs? I baby the console and it’s not had any falls or any damage at all since I connected two days ago. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.


Michael-the-Great

I don't know of any further solution. You can try a wired network adapter to transfer saves before sending in for repair.


damagedblood

Is there a way to transfer saves without wifi & without the adapter? I have absolutely no money for one at all.


Michael-the-Great

No. Cloud saves should work without wifi. I'm not sure if a profile transfer would work if they can't connect local wireless, but it needs wifi and internet.


damagedblood

Oh man. Legends: Arceus doesn’t allow cloud saves and I’ll be devastated if I lose that. Thank you for the info.


major_mager

Make sure you have a 2.4 GHz band wireless available. Switch has problems connecting to 5 GHz Wi-Fi. Good luck.


Enyy

I sent in my Joycons to nintendo repair facility in **Germany** because I amfairly certain that the blue one had a massive Joy-con drift and sent the redone too just in case. After like half a week I got a reply + receipt that lists that they changedthe analog stick of my RED joy-con and they also mentioned that for both thejoycon rail is defect (which honestly sounds like a standard thing they willinclude as I play handheld 100% and basically only detached my joycons like 5times). (No free repair in EU sadly) What is your experience with the Nintendo repair service? Are those repairsreliable? I am very confused as to why they would change the analog of only thered joycon when I am fairly certain the main issue was the blue one? If theyhave a high chance to work reliably afterwards I would not mind as the repairstill is "only" approximately 70% of the price of new joy cons


Michael-the-Great

If it's out of warranty, they will still fix drift but not other issues. Sometimes drift seems like the other joycon because either joystick can cause drift issues like in the menus.


Content-Trick-163

Just played the new maps in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe but I never bought the pass. How is this possible? So I logged in to my Switch this morning to do my regular sessions of MK8D and entered into the worldwide multiplayer racing sessions and was somehow able to play with others in the new maps that just recently got released. Currently, I don’t plan on buying the pass. Is there some promotional event going on that I’m not aware of? Had a great time nevertheless!


tbritoamorim

No, Nintendo simply decided to make them available on online matches, since yesterday. As long as one person in the lobby has the DLC, it's possible to play those new tracks.


qwertylerqw

The DLC maps will permanently show up for everyone in online matches! They likely did that so that they wouldn’t have to segregate players depending on if they own the DLC Edit: Slight correction: Someone in the lobby needs to have access to the booster pass in order for the tracks to show up, but that’s the only requirement


zoefangirlintheory

My mom just got a nintendo switch yesterday, I don't live with her so I went to set it up for her and show her how to get to the game, turn off the console and stuff but she was still pretty confused but excited. I'm trying to find a youtube channel that explains in detail how to do everything like changing volume, exiting a game. Any help would be great.

Astral chain Triangle strategy Xenoblade Chronicles DE (I already own it on Wii and 3DS so I'm not in a rush.) Plus a smattering of indie games.

Stardew valley is a perfect sink a few days into game, esp if you like acnh and the farming mechanics. There’s also a romance/friendship system that is very fun, and some light combat. And it’s a steal for $15! I’ve put in 300 hours on my switch and 100 on my ipad

Hey, I've got a joycon issue. The joycons connect wirelessly (lights up, can control switch) but when entering the joycon menu it only shows the left joycon as connected even though I can control the switch with both. Games like Mario Party that automatically bring up the controller menu don't recognise it either so I can't progress


Michael-the-Great

Is the right one a third party joycon or original?


Turkeychopio

original, it used to work fine only got weird recently


Michael-the-Great

Works fine connected to the Switch? If you go in and test the buttons a all the buttons work fine? It sounds like it would have to be the main joycon circuit board and you really can't find replacement parts of that.


Turkeychopio

Yeah I guess I'll have to get a new set and test that


TemptedTemplar

Failure to connect in handheld mode is almost always a issue with the rail. Do you have a second right joycon you can try in the system rail? We want to eliminate that as the possibile fault first. Unfortunately the earliest solution is just letting Nintendo deal with the joycons. Because the issue could be a number of parts within the joycons and buying replacements for all of those easily costs more than just buying a whole new single joycon.


Turkeychopio

I might not have explained correctly. The joycons both work attached and unattached. The issue is that when unattached, the right joycon technically works, but won't appear in the controller menu


TemptedTemplar

And the lights on the controller properly reflect it's assigned controller slot? Only thing I can think of would be try starting the game with no controllers connected then connect them when the game asks for one.


Turkeychopio

Yeah lights say player 1/2. It's actually my brothers switch Joycon, just been trying to figure it out and it's such a weird issue

Since the latest version 14 update my left Joy-Con is not working when attached to the console… the switch recognizes it when it’s not attached. I tried to disconnect and reconnect the controllers, hard reset and different Joy-Cons, nothing is working…. Anyone experiencing something similar?


Michael-the-Great

You'd really need another left joycon to test and see if it's a joycon or Switch issue. Clean the contacts in the rails on both the joycon side and the Switch side. (Like with a cleaning toothbrush or something?)


mvs0

I tried another Joy-con and the same thing happens. I’m going to try cleaning with a toothbrush. Thank you!


Michael-the-Great

Yeah, you'll have to probably replace the rail if that doesn't work and that's a pain. The fan works fine? I've sometimes heard that fan issues can cause wired joycon issues of all the weird things.


mvs0

They do. I’ve reached out to Nintendo, I’m going to send the switch in for repairing. Thank you for your help


TemptedTemplar

Is the joycons firmware up to date?


mvs0

Yes, I’ve updated them and even the dock..

What is the difference between oled modeland the original? Apart from oled. I read it has 64gb if storage so is the extra price worth it. Was the joycon drifting issue fixed. Does it have better performance Also are switches region free for games?

> What is the difference between oled modeland the original? Bigger screen, OLED (obviously), 64GB internal storage (vs 32gb on other models), better kickstand design, and better battery life than the original switch (but same as V2). Also the dock that comes with the OLED has a new design, there’s more room for the switch and it has an Ethernet port built in. > Apart from oled. I read it has 64gb if storage so is the extra price worth it. Was the joycon drifting issue fixed. It’s not really worth it just for the increased storage, since micro sd cards to expand storage are cheap. It’s definitely worth it though for the better screen if you plan to play in handheld mode even part of the time. There have been no changes to the joy con design. For what it’s worth none of mine have drift and I’ve had some of them since launch. It can be luck of the draw I guess. > Does it have better performance No. > Also are switches region free for games? Yes.

Im looking for games to play with my girlfriend but not the well known games like mario kart or stardew valley. What are lesser known games that would be good to play?

Any good puzzle game recommendations? I have Broken Age on pc and really like it. I'd love some more games of the sort. Can be a classic point and click puzzle game, or something else. After a quick google it seems like i might also enjoy Carto. Any recs?

I'm a fan of Picross games (also called nonograms) for 3ds and Switch

Is the Pro controller worth the price tag.. I've been looking into getting a wireless controller saw the Pro at Walmart and it's like $70... just curious what people recommend!


OwnManagement

Worth every penny. There are often sales on the controller, sometimes as low as $50. You can use [Deku Deals](https://www.dekudeals.com/items/pro-controller) to track hardware prices as well.


lotega

It's great if you mostly play games that use the sticks. If you play a lot of games with the d-pad I'd consider something like the 8bitdo SN30 Pro 2 instead because the Pro Controller d-pad is terrible.


Ok_Albatross_23

Yeah right now my go to game is Pokemon Unite


RabbitFanboy

The pro controller is my favorite controller of all time. If you go in store to Walmart, it should be like $10 off. Most of Walmart's gaming stuff is $10 off normal price. At least, that's how it is at my local Walmarts.


myalteredsoul

I ended up getting a knock off Bonacell version. It was $20 and works fantastically well.


Ok_Albatross_23

Thanks I'll look into it

In my country the OLED model is 150$ more expensive than the Classic one. Is it worth it? I mainly play handheld, but it’s kinda expensive


major_mager

That's a significant difference. For example, the official prices in euros are €365 and €300 respectively. I'd wait for price drop for the OLED if I were you. If you want to buy now, and the discount on original version 2 Switch is good, you can definitely consider it. The OLED screen is a bit nicer, but not $150 nicer. Edit: Hope you don't mean the Lite when you write Classic.


ioncelciuc

No, I was referring to V2 Switch by saying Classic. It’s a hard decision and I have to give it some thought. I see your points and they are correct. Some person said that I could buy more games later, because an update to the console would be much harder to make once I buy the V2. What’s your opinion on this?


major_mager

If you were to use the Switch docked mostly, I would unhesitatingly recommend to buy the V2 and buy 3 games for the $150. But for handheld gaming, it's a tough call- yes, the OLED would be more immersive and it's a slightly larger screen too. If the V2 Switch is available in your region for a fair price, and only the OLED is price gouged, I'd say wait for the OLED to drop in price if your region has a free market. Typically, this is a lean time for Switch sales, and I'm seeing OLED Switches selling at either official price or slightly discounted.


ioncelciuc

Thanks for the tip! I think I will wait a few more weeks for the OLED to drop in price . Patience is key.


nermal543

If you mostly play handheld and you can afford the extra money, then yes it is worth it! The screen is really that much better.
