    Ring Fit Adventure is definitely one of those games that reminds you as to why the joy con are so expensive. I don't get how it can measure your pulse through your thumb with the IR sensor or tell if you're standing up and sitting down.

    I'm watching the miss play it for the first time this evening and may have to get on board.

    So I ran to my local tesco upon hearing about the 2 fo £60 switch games and they were completely cleaned out except for Witcher 3 which wasn't included. Sadface.

    Seems like a good deal if you can find it though.

    Trouble for me is London is mainly filled with Tesco Express. Thought about traipsing to a bigger one, but trying calling beforehand and it just cut out every time. Severly doubt they'll have any anyway, so think I'm outta luck really.

    I don't know if it's my imagination, but gameplay on the Lite feels slightly snappier than on the OG Switch. Load times are a bit faster, and some games have less slowdown.

    @Mola_Ram

    Think it has the newer processor that was slightly better and included in the revised switch.

    Re: voucher, was disappointed to learn I canít get the free steel book with Pokemon using the £84 voucher offer.

    @Tomo

    If you have Nintendo online you can buy a voucher for £84 that lets you buy two eshop games (from a defined list). You can buy them one at a time. So Iíll be getting DQXI and Pokemon for example.

    Also on cdkeys you can get £30 credit for £28 at the moment to save yourself another £4.

    @THFourteen that would explain it!

    Anyway, pretty satisfied with the Lite so far. I can see the arguments against it - it's not really a Switch anymore, for one thing - but I like it. And I still have the normal Switch to fall back on if I really want to play something docked.

    Oh right. Not a particularly amazing bargain compared to the Tesco one, but fair enough.

    No not great but probably the best you can do digital for the big games even with sales.

    For those that did the twitch prime free membership around the time of the snes games reveal, it may be time to redeem your extra 9 months as I did mine today.

    Played about 40 minutes of the impossible lair, I kinda feel the levels are a bit too long (as are the load times). I missed two coins on chapter 2 but to get them means running a level thatís 10-15 minutes long :/

    Am absolutely loving Astral chain. Have now completed file 10 and 32hrs in. Combat is spectacular and once you get a hang of the combat links it flows so well.

    There's a new Dragon Quest Builders 2 demo up on the eshop

    It's a great game, but it's also a huge game. I have 75 hours on the clock and I'm still not at the game's end! It's a fantastic time sink, however, if you just need something to lose yourself in. The Island of Awakening plays out like a Minecraft game (in that there is no real ending) and you're free to build and develop your own little functioning towns.

    The dialogue, like in any Dragon Quest game, is absolutely top notch. Some of the best in industry.

    Just picked up four copies of Luigiís Mansion at the local Tescoís on the deal. Loads of other stock.

    They must have had a new delivery. You can go into any Tescoís and ask them to stock check the bigger ones I think, so you know if thereís one close by with copies.

    I donít know. Looks right.

    FIFA 20 was there as well, not sure if it was on deal but I thought it was. Didnít see Yoshi or Pikachu but Iím guessing that was just a stock issue. Saw all the rest.

    I had £140 worth of clubcard vouchers so got myself a Switch Lite yesterday

    One question - do you need a SD card for normal saves or just for downloadable games and content?

    @retro74

    There is enough built in memory for all your saves and a few normal size download games or big patches.

    SD card gives you room for more downloads.

    Picked up Groove Coaster. Itís really good so far! 100 songs including unlocks, loads of missions to do and the whole package is nicely put together. If youíre importing it apparently goes into full English as well.

    @macmurphy 6500 yen on the Eshop. They have said that thereíll be an announcement for an overseas release later, though. 1600 for the song packs is a little stiff as they have 10 tracks each.

    Thatís definitely a bit much for me as it would mostly be a bit of fun to while away ten minutes or bring out at parties.

    Might see how it reviews and look out for a sale.
