My Switch has some wear on the back faceplate (where my fingers sit). You know where it goes a bit shiny. 

 

Has anyone replaced the backplate before? If so, any suggestions on where to get a replacement? With it now being out of warranty I am up for a snazzy design too. Maybe even a better kickstand. 

It's dead easy to swap over as well :)

Additional Gris feedback whether you want it or not....it really is a remarkable gaming experience. You can play through without that much thought and just enjoy the visual and audio landscape which makes it a terrific bit of escapism. Graphically, aside from its overall fantastic look, what amazes me is amount of detail that they could easily have left out and yet they’ve taken the time to include. Little animations here and there you can just sit and watch - just bloody buy it if you haven’t - it’s beautiful. 

Think this is the best game I've played for a long long time.... More of an experience I think. Just such a relaxing and feel good game. Even better to take your mind of the current situation and blissful to be in lockdown with things like this to appreciate.....

Amazon keeps coming in and out of stock for both the Neon and Grey.

 

Is anyone actively after one at the moment? I’m happy to buy on behalf of a forum member if I see one in stock and then ship on when it arrives if you don’t mind paying the additional courier cost. Takes one off the eBay scalper too!

Does anyone/anywhere sell exact replacements for the stock backplate? :unsure: I’m a bit too bent towards keeping my consoles in stock their appearance... 

 

Ive got a new transparent case fitted on mine - so the old original backplate is going spare. It’s at the office though! If you’re still looking when this is all over, let me know.

If I were to buy a new switch, & give my current one to Mrs mul, will I need to buy all of my digital games again, or can they be added to the new switch if I add my profile there?


you could just transfer your profile over. You would not lose your digital purchases at all.

Anyone still looking for a Switch right now, StockInformer are great but don’t rely on the email notifications - by the time they go out the shops are often out of stock. Keep the website open with the option ticked for an alarm sound audio notification when they find any as these are up to 5-10 min earlier it seems. By doing this I had ordered and just received my order confirmation email as the email alert came in.

My son has managed to bag a switch which hasn’t arrived yet .  Is it possible to set up a switch account prior to its arrival to take advantage of the current sale ? Or alternatively should I set up a profile on my switch in order for him to buy the games he wants then transfer ?

thanks

I'm not an expert but setting him up a profile on your switch and buying the games is probably the best bet. He can then sign into his profile on the new switch and make that the primary console.

You can currently pre-order the Xenoblade Chronicles remaster from Amazon.fr for about £28 delivered. According to HUKD, where I heard about the deal, they don't take your money until dispatch and the exchange rate may have changed then, but I've taken a punt on it anyway and will decide whether or not to keep it closer to the time. Bear in mind that the writing on the box may be in French, too, although sometimes this isn't the case: my version of BOTW is from the Saudi Arabia (I think) and all the writing is in English.

 

I'm hoping for a French language option with subtitles so I don't have to listen to the bloody English voice acting.

Speaking of incredibly pretty games, this looks stunning. :wub:

 

 

 

Looks heavily influenced by the Boku no Natsuyasumi games—purposefully so, I imagine. Lovely design.It has the potential to be a great summer game.

I thought ShopTo were above being money grubbing bastards, but no.

To be fair, it's a poorly labelled advert but it does come with a game at that price.  Without a game it's £199, which is whatever we're calling the concept of RRPs now.

I didn’t click through the email but you’re right. However, the ones without a game are out of stock so you’re being forced to buy Cars 3. This is Game-level bullshit.

Is it just me, or is this a fiddly console to set up? I've had nothing but problems with the the Joycons/ Specifically the left one. I charged them both overnight by attaching to the Switch in the dock, but this morning, the left one warned me straight away about being low on charge. The right one was fine. The faff of un-pairing then pairing didn't seem to work. Then, the sky remote wouldn't work at all. In the end I unplugged all the Switch cables and left for a minute. Re-connected. Somehow paired the Joycons (what's all the stuff about re-ordering about?) and both Joycons show 100% and Sky remote now works.

 

Googling seems to suggest that these issue have been occurring since day one. I think I am going to get the Pro Controller. I will hardly play handheld, so seems like a sensible option. I am not a fan of the Joycons if I am honest. I can't get on with playing with them detached at all. And, I was a fan of the Wii Mote and Nunchuck set-up.

 

This sounds like nitpicking, but first impressions weren't typical Nintendo. The one thing however that remains unchallenged is the quality of the Nintendo games. Odyssey is utterly sublime. I got the yearly online for £13.99 from CDkeys  and didn't realise you got ALL of the NES and SNES games as part of that package. I somehow thought you only got 2 of each. Was impressed with the games available. I am hoping N64 games are coming as well?

I never had anything like those issues but the JC are certainly a bit fiddly. I've seldom used them since I got a Pro Controller. It's a fine pad, very comfortable. 

 

If you want to replace the JC at some stage purely for handheld use, I would recommend the Hori Split Pad Pro, which look massive but are well more comfortable and have better buttons, sticks, triggers. They don't have rumble or amiibo function but I've never missed either in handheld. 

 

No word on N64 games for Switch Online but Super Mario 64 is coming this year, but we don't yet know whether a remaster, remake or straight port.

Not sure what the Sky remote has to do with the Switch?

Just got a switch and animal crossing and I am loving it. I also tried demos for both dragon quest xii and trials of mana, but the text size was so small for both on the switch screen (full size) that it strained my eyes a bit and I couldn’t see any option to make it bigger. Is this a common issue with games with lots of small text like rpgs? I think I’ve been spoiled by animal crossing and its MASSIVE AND EASY TO READ TEXT.
