    If there is even a tiny, minuscule, remote chance that one day you might sit there and think "shit, I'd quite like to play this on a TV, why didn't I just a standard Switch", or that there is a tiny, minuscule, remote chance that you might want to do local multiplayer with friends / family, then just get a standard Switch and enjoy both worlds. I really struggle to see the appeal of the Lite other than for 100% never-ever-going-to-dock and only ever going to play single gamers.

    I've been tempted to get a lite but I've several games I need the OG for. Ring fit adventure and Fitness boxing, snipper clips and Mario kart are all games I play docked or table top mode so it's a no go really.

    As a fourth joycon has started drifting, and the pro controller, I wouldn't buy a Lite due to the non detachable joycons.

    It won't let me register the cartridge.
    Some games from small publishers seem to have this problem (I have encountered it with a few, but not all Limited Run Games games). It is a weird system, some US games register fine on UK account, some don't. My one Japanese game doesn't register on either UK or US account. Assuming you mean the register for gold coins things.
    That's the thing. Yeah, just get an error.

    Final warning lads, I'm not going to name names in the open because that's not cool but I really have no other way to contact people. I've emailed twice and I'm still waiting for money from two people, I need to have it by the end of the day on Tuesday please or you will be booted on Wednesday morning!

    On a related note I may have two free Nintendo Online slots on Wednesday morning if anyone's interested ;)

    @BigOrkWaaagh I made a WhatsApp group for my online family. Though one person left it, but I still have their WhatsApp contact so was still able to message them about payment.

    The option to change region is greyed out on my online account. Anyone any ideas?

    Never mind, I had to unlink my NNID.

    @BigOrkWaaagh I'd be interested too if you end up with spare slots on Wednesday- how much does it cost to join the Ork family?

    @Chug666 £2.95 for the year. Might only be one year though as my IRL buddy has expressed an interest but he's paid up until 2021.

    @BigOrkWaaagh Hey mate, sorry. Your emails went into my junk mail of an old account. Probably grabbing the boy his own Switch so think I may have to drop out Iím afraid as my understanding is you canít have be part of a Family sub if you have your own Family set up, right? If thatís the case, then feel free to add in someone else.

    @BigOrkWaaagh Sounds good, I'd only really want it for the SNES games so a time limit might make me actually play them! Let me know if you have a spare space and how to pay if you do. Cheers!

    @The_Goon That is correct sir, and indeed the reason I had to start the group in the first place. I will remove you on Wednesday, cheers for letting me know.

    Anyone played Cat Quest? Any good? It has caught my eye the last couple of times itís been on sale.

    I just realised that my Nintendo account is tied to my old phone Googleís Authenticator which is a ball ache. I canít log in without it and I canít remember what I did with the back up codes. Thankfully I think I still have it kicking around in a drawer somewhere.

    @richardiox yep, you're on my list! Easiest thing to do probably is look for last year's PayPal transaction around 15/01 and send £2.95 to the same place. Otherwise DM me on Discord please.

    Alright gents, had anyone played Witcher 3 extensively on Switch? I know there is plenty of DF coverage etc, but wondering what itís actually like day to day on the commute etc.

    I played many hours of Divinity 2 but the resolution was a bit of a nightmare to be honest, you just had a vague idea what was actually happening on screen a lot of the time.

    @ThrowingTuba I found Witcher 3 to be really blurry on the Switch too. Foliage and surroundings just all blended together and it was hard to get immersed when I was spending so much time trying to focus on something.

    Iíve read it gets better after you leave the first area but the small bit of time I put into it has really put me off and Iíve not been back since I got it on release.

    Itís a feat getting it onto the Switch, definitely. But that doesnít mean it SHOULD be on the Switch with the graphics being downgraded so much in my opinion.

    @ThrowingTuba I've played about 10 hours of TW3 and found the performance fine TBH. It obviously won't look as sharp as the home console versions, but I thought it played fine.

    I know there are a few of us looking for a full fat revised Switch. Stock is expected to arrive at most major stores towards the end of next week in the UK including Amazon and the official Nintendo store.
