    The Switch maybe almost two years old but having big games on the small screen never tires. Playing Skyrim on the go is amazing. Itís bonkers.

    Started replaying DKTF to try to get all the various collectables. I wasn't a fan of this game when I played through it the first time (and I still have my doubts/issues) but it seems much more fun the second time through. Also, the extra K levels are a good challenge - wish a bit more of the game was like that.

    Why they have not thought to include a "restart level" option in the game is baffling though. Bizarre choice.

    If difficulty is something you'd like to see ramped up, try DKC: Returns. It's much harder overall and is probably why I prefer it. As fancy as Tropical Freeze looks.

    Played more Civ VI, really good on the Switch. My small empire was invaded by an aggressive Cleopatra and I lost 2 cities before a peace deal was made. I got the last laugh as all the other civs and I later ganged up and gave Egypt a beating.

    I can see it's going to chug a fair bit later in the game but it's fantastic in handheld. Docked, or of course on pc would be arguably superior due to the bigger screen etc. but I just don't see myself playing it that way. Just seems boring. Totally sold on the handheld experience.

    I'm seriously tempted by Dark Souls in the sale- for anyone who has it, how well does it play in portable mode? Some games I've found the stick position a bit awkward, and I fear Dark Souls may be too intense to be comfortable. If its better in full screen mode I'll just get the PS4 remaster...

    @Chug666

    Haven't played it myself, but the DF piece on it suggests it works better in portable mode.

    Curiously, playing in portable mode is a somewhat more consistent experience - and there are no visual downgrades compared to running the game docked as all of the assets, effects and physics are identical. Resolution does change, however. Switch renders the game at a native 1280x720, matching the handheld display. It looks sharp and even here it exceeds the resolution of the last-gen releases with their cut-down, sub-native 1024x720. There's no dynamic resolution scaling, either. The Darkroot Basin area that saw pixel counts drop while docked still operates at 720p with no loss in fidelity - and the same goes for taxing boss battles.

    Edit: Never mind, just realised you were talking about how it plays in terms of holding the console, rather than tech matters. Still, I'll leave this up in case it's useful to anyone else considering it.

    Anyone played Killer Queen Black? Sounds great. Like Towerfall/Nidhogg or something. Just curious if there is an online community still playing it.

    I played and completed it entirely in portable mode. It's my favourite ever game.

    In other news, I've swapped out my 128gb card for a 256.

    this one

    Hoping to still have in the region of 80-90gb free once I've downloaded everything I have (at least everything I expect to play). Card seems up to the job, R/W speeds are decent. Great price considering. Not quite willing to jump on the 512gb. Yet.

    Still using the default storage since launch \o/

    Think I might pick up Killer Queen Black then.

    Got Caveblazers for 2 quid today. Hopefully nicely fill in for Spelunky until the sequel arrives.

    @Murbs did you copy the existing 128GB to it via a PC? Or did you just re-download the lot?

    @Clart via pc; dragged the contents to my desktop then copied it over onto the new card.

    I did more or less the same thing when copying the contents of my 64GB card to a 128GB card. It's just copy/paste.
    The only thing I ran into was that my PC would not recognize the 128GB card (too large...). So in the end I used by phone as "card-reader".

    I ended up redownloading everything, I left it working overnight and it was done by morning.

    I may need to 'invest' in a 400gb card soon as i have filled up my current card twice over :(

    Just noticed now that Super Chariot is literally 99 cents for the sales, which is a steal really.

    It's well worth playing even if you don't have a coop partner.

    I believe Amazon are doing a Black Friday thing for that very item, if you are interested.

    @Graxlar_v3 Not for free, unfortunately.

    Silly question, but have you tried blasting the thing with compressed air? I thought my drifting was terminal, but a £1 can of air fixed my left Joy Con and its been fine ever since.

    @DangerousDave_87 And if compressed air doesn't work then a can of contact cleaner definitely does.
