PARTNER mini direct tomorrow - all note the use of the word PARTNER

 

There will be no Wave Race, no F Zero, no surprise Splatoon 3, no ARMS2

 

This of course won't stop some claiming they are sure they saw a new Advance Wars in their eShop coming soon section

And it's worth every single penny if you play docked often. There are some bootleg ones on things like AliExpress that people have bought, someone should be able to give you a link and a heads up on how they are.

 

My Splatoon clone pro pad works works great. The rumble isn't HD, and there's no NFC, but it cost about £17. And the build quality is very nice.

 

Admittedly I wish it worked via BT on PC, which it doesn't seem to want to do.

i paid £16 for one of these in a lighting deal - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08725YC6S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

If yea on a budget they are well made and it works 

 

I've got one of those for doing co-op on the switch. Have a Pro and use this one from Amazon as the second, is a great controller, only downside is it doesn't hold a charge for too long.

Hopefully a release date of NMH III and more info in Bayonetta 3 as well  :)

 

It'd have to be somewhat spectacular as I'd wager it's set against the PS5 presentation, so the kids don't forget about the Switch all of a sudden.

 


I hope so. The last two have been so shit I wont even bother watching live. 
 

Mind you, they didn’t announce them ahead of time like this one so....

I always baulk at pad prices but the Pro Controller is the only one out of that, the Xbox One and Dual shock 4 I haven't had to replace in the life of the go sole so far.


Yeah same for me, plus the thing is nuclear powered or something, can’t remember when I last gave it a charge, which is a nice change from my Dual Shock which seemingly needs a charge every day or two.

I paid slightly more for this one

and I love it. Seems to do everything a switch pad needs to do, and holds its charge for hours. I bought it for the kids but I use it pretty much all the time. I even managed to complete Hollow Knight with it!

 

I was not paid any money for this public service announcement.

I thought that presentation landed really well, like what I thought the last Direct Mini would be like. Monster Hunter will be huge, no doubt why there are two coming out next year. 
 

Not for everyone but I’m excited about Fitness Boxing 2, the first still gets regular use from me and this looks like there’s loads more moves and content. Seriously if fitness is your aim get this, it’s brilliant. 
 

Hades and Ori coming out today is awesome, I’d like both of those.

 

All in all there’s a lot out and a lot to look forward to on Switch - Nintendo have really stepped it up a gear in the last few weeks.

 

But, where is Doom Eternal?

It’s also just nice to finally, finally, see a line-up of third party titles that are made from the ground up for Switch. Took a while but 2021 is shaping up to be the year of third parties on Switch.

Anyone done a joycon stick replacement?

 

I've got terrible drift in three of my four controllers, and I've tried using contact cleaner to fix them to no avail. I've read a couple of guides, have the necesssary tools, and I feel comfortable doing the replacements myself, but I'm not sure where to pick up the replacement sticks from. iFixit don't have have any in stock. There are loads of cheap sticks on ebay and amazon, but I'm not sure if all sticks are created equally. It's a fiddly enough job that I wouldn't want to do it only to find out I'd stuck a duff stick in there. Any recommendations?

It's reasonably easy job with one exception, the ribbon cables. They are a pain in the arse and break very easily. As for the sticks themselves I'm not sure but they are probably pretty generic.

I replaced the shells on mu joycons and it wasn't too bad but as pulsemyne says the ribbons are the painful bits, particular for the should buttons.

I'd recommend picking up some fine tweezers to help. Something like:

You'll be fine with anything along these lines..

The ribbons are annoying to deal with but just take it slow and you should be fine. The main problem I had was actually unscrewing the joycon. The screws have a very small plastic coating on so you have to be sure the screwdriver is locked into place and not stripping that off. I made that mistake and ended up having to drill a screw out. Joycon still works though! (Only my backup set so it's only used for rare instances of multiplayer)
