I suspect everyone in this thread has one already, but there aren't really any good bargains on the console itself at the moment are there? Still out of stock most places! I've got a commute starting next week and I have talked myself into buying one. And zelda of course.

Digital price of Rime is being lowered to the same price as other formats. Plus physical version includes a code to redeem the OST.

First off, the digital version of RiME on Nintendo Switch will now cost $29.99 / €34.99 / £29.99, the same price as the game on other platforms. So, that’s straightforward enough.


For the Nintendo Switch version of RiME, all physical copies will include a printed code for a download of the complete, beautiful soundtrack by David García (a sample of which you can find here). You will be able to download the music via Bandcamp in one of the multiple high-quality formats. The soundtrack is planned on being sold separately for $10 in the US (and equivalent prices elsewhere), and so the value you’re going to get out of this will be the same as somebody who purchased a different version of RiME, and then bought the soundtrack.

 

A shame Nintendo will go in and apply Brexit tax to that price though. ;)

Okay, so the tri wing worked. I only had some white foam that came with a PSU. All the conductive stuff seemed to be black from what I saw on the net...

 

HOWEVER.. it all appears to be working. Ideally i should have tried before i put the foam in but i was standing a good 10 foot away playing mario kart with hands behind my back with no issues.

I really find the distinction between what it "primarily" is utterly pointless. 

 

There are people in this thread who have never taken the dock out of the box and others who have almost never taken it out of the dock. 

Totally. I was sceptical but now having used one for the last two months, it really is the hybrid console they're marketing it as.

I'm tempted by Minecraft at £19.99, but with so much left to do in BoTW and MK8 multiplayer I know it won't get a look in for ages. 

There's not enough time in the day for endless games like Minecraft. 

 

I was devastated to learn MGSV was a lengthy open-world game recently; I really just wanted a nice, straightforward A to B Metal Gear and then to move on to the next game I've got waiting in my pile 'o PS4 games!

 

*Zelda doesn't could because it's GotY.

I'm having issues with my joycons :( The right one isn't being detected by the switch itself when in handheld mode. You get the little flash / image thing on the screen when you place it in but no switch sound.

 

So i've tried disconnecting the joycons and now I can't get it to work at all. Tried things people suggest online such as pressing the sync button and slotting it back in, I am running the battery down while at work today. Have placed it back in the dock hoping it will pick it up. Anymore ideas before I contact Nintendo?

My Tumbleseed review after 4 hours:

 

Frustrating as Fuck

Insanely difficult

Brutal RNG

HD rumble implementation way overhyped

But still as moreish as chocolate-coated crack

 

Definitely only for complete masochists though. You have been warned!

Still no word on mine being found so caved and bought another set so I can actually use the bloody thing.  Did the foam fix myself on these but it has made no noticeable difference. :(

 

At least they look nice.

No noticeable difference? do you get sync issues with the new yellow ones?

I'd read on cnet that they had essentially fixed the interference issue on the Bluetooth trace with the later produced joy-cons!

I really need to send my left joycon back. Since getting Mario Kart 8 I use the Pro while my housemate uses the joycons in the grip and he occasionally complains about being unable to steer his kart. We're sat no more than 6 feet away with a clear line of view of the console. It's bloody annoying, no idea how an issue this widespread and easily reproducible got through testing.

Mine are not official yellow ones, they're a pair of grey ones which I then swapped the cases on.  Opening them up revealed no foam installed so they're either old stock or they're still shipping out joy-con with the issue.
