    @PazJohnMitch Oh that could be something then. Iíd picked up young female mage from a bar (that doesnít sound quite right) and I was making my way to rescue her sister. Other than that there was the other main character whoís name I canít remember but he has the spiky hair whoís essential to the story anyway.

    Beat Bowser in SMW last night. Holy hell. I didnt remember how brutal some of those later levels were. World 6 and 7 are tough at times.

    Not ashamed to admit using the rewind feature liberally.

    So version 9.0 of the Switch firmware looks like they are finally going to utilise the notification light.

    So that's nice.

    Getting a little frustrated with final fantasy 12. At a very long grindy tower near the end, hit a boss I cant beat, and there is no way out.

    I am low on items, and need to teleport to get more, but there is no way around. It's going to be a couple of hours of grinding near a save point until I can breeze through.

    So annoying, up to now there have been save points near each boss, but here it is 20 minutes back as well.

    I see Etsy sell modded joycons with d-pad. They're quite expensive, but after playing SNES games all weekend I'm really tempted...

    Yes, Rayman Legends! It has both side scrolling platforming *and* shooting levels.

    @beastmaster

    I still donít think thereís a great online shooter.

    Single player Doom was amazing, Warframe has good mechanics though it is more of an RPG looter. Enjoyed it till the boredom crept in. Bulletstorm looks good. Paladins was quite good though itís a team shooter like Overwatch where itís about using powers and teamwork. My friend enjoyed both Wolfensteins though he said they were pricey for what they were.

    Canít think of any others off the top of my head. Best single player Doom. Best multiplayer Paladins. Best RPG-shooter Warframe.

    Iíve just realised I forgot about Splatoon 2. In my head it doesnít register as a shooter still. Put about 100 hours in and really enjoyed it, it still has packed lobbies. That should probably your first port of call. But definitely try it first, some of my friends hate it because itís so unlike a traditional shooter.

    @Murbs Itís a shame they donít make a plain version, I think theyíd probably sell a lot more then.

    They do, but only in Japan IIRC. You could always import from Play Asia or somewhere.

    Really? I did look at the Hori ones, but was put off when I read that they feel different and are missing some features from the normal joycons.

    @Kay The Hori joy-con can only be used attached to the Switch in handheld mode, that's the main difference. It's much lighter, but you don't really notice as you only ever use it attached. I like mine.

    @monkman76 ah ok - is it still very good quality, and is the d-pad comfortable to use/make much a difference?

    It's good quality yes, though I admit I haven't used it that much since I stopped playing MK11 early in the summer. The d-pad is night and day better than the 'd-pad' on the standard joy-con for sure.

    Anyone tried the Daemon Ex Machina demo? It's not really my sort of game but it's actually pretty decent. I skipped past a lot of the explanation so I wasn't quite sure what was happening but got the hang of it eventually. Not a must buy at all for me but one I might keep an eye open for if it's on a reasonable sale.

    Some of those SNES games are rather hard! I can't even get past the boss fight on Demon's Crest, which is saying something as it happens in the first 5 seconds of the game starting. Not being sure of the controls doesn't help either.

    Playing Blasphemous which is a dark souls like metroidvania. Pretty good so far but I think salt and sanctuary is better.
