Yea, sorry about that. Reviews were alright, 6/10ish, and it looked good in trailers, but the handling and weapon system turns out to be utterly pants. Bit disappointed, thought it might be a nice lite racer for the kids, but the controls are way overcomplicated.

I suspect it makes more sense on a platform where you can't play Mario Kart, although when even my phone can do a decent job of emulating Double Dash those are getting few and far between.

Hi, regarding the Nintendo Switch I wanted to know if I am the only one having problems with my joycons.

The joystricks sometimes bug and the buttons no longer respond ... Unfortunately it happened shortly after the end of the warranty.

Panzer Paladin really is very good, only run through the one level so far (Scotland) but I’m having a good time. It seems the game does throw weapons at you like candy! It would be nice to have a proper description of the spells, unless I’m missing that in the menus somewhere, things like Heal are obvious, but Durability and Reflect? :?

Hatsune Miku on Switch looks a hell of a lot better than the slightly off plastic look I’m used to on PS4, happy with the track list too

I have an issue where the right joy con (that came with the console) loses battery very quickly and has done since the start. The console was weeks late due to a shipping mess up. I'm not looking forward to dealing with Nintendo UK's customer support again.

Changed days then. When I had issues with a DS Lite they were superb. Shipped me a returns box, no questions asked, fixed it and sent it back within a week at no charge.

I was hoping they'd bundle 1+2 in with this, 3 in it's own isn't worth a second dip for me. Its alrite, just short. Wonder if the new stuff adds much?

22.4m copies of Animal Crossing sold, and the console has shipped over 60m units according to Nintendo's latest financials.

They are literally sitting on a pile of cash.

Well after the failure of the WiiU they needed something.

Both that and the Xbox one are the only systems released in the 2010s I dont own and dont see the point in owning

Remember when people said Nintendo should stop making hardware.

People still say that. Nintendo have a very firm grasp these days of who their market is, and what they want.
