    Why are sales always so poor on Nintendo systems? As an example, Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition is currently £27.99, while was £15.99 on PSN a few weeks back.

    @Ror Digital content seems to sell better on Nintendo platforms for the most part, even at higher prices. Not even an overcrowded eShop seems to have dented that, for some reason.

    Rabbids is just over a tenner at the moment, which is insanely generous pricing, so it swings about.

    For anyone considering Dragon Quest Builders 2, performance isn't terrible. Slow down is noticeable in large bodies of water, or if a number of characters/monsters are on screen at once, but I've not experienced anything too distracting or severe. Its very playable given the pacing of the game. It also seems to run better in portable mode, for some reason.

    My only complaints so far, having watched the other half play it, is that initial loading screen is nearly a minute long. I'm guessing that's because the overworld is better connected this time around, rather than having a linear chapter system in the previous game.

    Secondly, it's very slow starting. It's close to an hour before you start building your first room and dialogue, as good as it is, is much heavier than the previous games.

    I do like that every monster with a large tongue speaks with a lisp. That amuses me greatly.

    @DangerousDave_87 I watched a review a while back of the Japanese version. The reviewer mentioned performance taking a big hit in later, larger levels. Still tempted myself, but havenít even finished the first level in the original game!

    Thinking of picking up Streets of Rogue. Itís a Rogue Like which has been described as Enter the Gungeon meets Deus Ex meets top down GTA.

    Itís sitting on Steam with an Overwhelmingly positive rating.

    Anyone tried this and would they recommend it? Havenít heard much about this one and seems to have slipped under the radar with very little fanfare. The reviews would suggest we are all missing a gem of a title here???

    @Graxlar_v3 yeah some levels are really simple others require a good 30 mins of trial and error until you have a light bulb moment.

    Luckily you don't need to complete every level in order to progress through the worlds.

    I completed about 100 levels in all before doing the final level.

    @bone-on not sure. Their twitter feed just says that they are investigating the sales suspension on the EU store and that they hope to have it sorted soon.

    Is there some kind of test out there for various MicroSD cards? I'd like to know if there's any real-world difference between SDXC classes or if I should just go for the cheapest one (among reliable brands).

    I think the switch read speeds canít go above certain levels. I had a cheapo card at first and was looking forward to blazing fast loading with my new bigger and faster sandisk but didnít notice any difference

    Anyone tried raised analogue grips for the joycon?

    Would love to play Splatoon and Fortnight handheld but, due to the lack of movement, my aim is terrible.

    Loving dragon quest builders 2. Runs fine until I went to look at someone else's massively built up world and the frame rate was slow as fuck

    Is there a way to get homebrew onto the Switch these days? I'd absolutely love to use it for streaming PC Games like with Steam Link or similar. Don't really want to lose my ability to play normal Switch games online though :/

    @StixxUK

    Yes you can. I think it depends on what serial no your switch has. There is an app for streaming from pc. You don't lose ability to play normal switch games or online as you can boot normally and load cfw as and when needed.

    Not done it myself but funnily enough been reading about it today as I want to bang some emulators on mine.

    If your Switch was manufactured before June 2018, you're good. Otherwise you're locked out, it seems.

    The pc streaming looks cool. As does the thought of playing some psx games on it. God I wish they would sort out snes games on it. I'll just use emulation for now.

    They should offer a switch just for tv use with no screen for a bargain price...

    FWIW - I loved Terraria on the Vita, but will wait for the Switch version to be on sale, as I'm not desperate to replay it

    Diablo for £28 on Amazon (if you have Prime). Tempted but Iíve got such a huge backlog. Seems to hold value though and rarely hits this low so worth a bite? Never played it before either...

    If you buy Diablo, you probably won't be playing anything else for a while.

    Is anybody else tempted to buy Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3? I can feel my resolve crumbling, but co-op would be better I suspect.
