    Because I am a sucker I am going to buy the upkoming MK11 DLC, but I can't seem to find it in other European stores. Is there a way for me to find it without manually region jumping on the Switch itself? Have tried eshop prices and save coins.
    The correct answer for my fellow suckers is Russia, where it's about £27.

    Played 50 odd levels of Mars Power Industries. It is a decent puzzler. Nothing spectacular but a decent 6/10 game which is not bad for 79p.

    The puzzles are starting to get quite challenging now.

    Played 5 minutes of NBA 20 and I have literally no idea what I'm doing. I haven't played an NBA game since the Mega Drive :D

    @macmurphy Really? I remember the way you would use the gamepad to multitask and send ‘squads’ off in other directions was pretty crucial. Not to mention the best control method (imo) was using stylus.

    @SnackPlissken it's super complex. But the presentation is pretty damn impressive! God I can't wait for the NBA to restart.

    What the Golf sounds pretty good!

    But, like £5 good. Not £18 good! :(

    @Flying_Pig I played it on Apple Arcade and really enjoyed it. But yeah, I wouldn’t pay £18 for it either.

    @Flying_Pig If you have PC, it's on epic store and with the current £10 voucher sale on you can pick it up for £5.99.

    @jonathanlealand

    I can't remember. I think I probably played it on the pro pad? Or maybe with the wiimotes?

    Sigh. My right joycon is drifting- only bought the console last October. It's the newer model but I guess they never solved the problem.

    Currently weighing my options. Several folk here have had luck sending it to official Nintendo UK repair centres, but if I do that I'm down by one joycon for a few days- maybe more if there are postal delays.

    Might get a pro controller first!

    Hmm, just noticed that shifting down with the L stick isn't always responsive and is a bit sticky. Anyone else had this problem?

    Looking forward to the 51 classic game collection next month. The one for the DS was a good thing to turn to when I wanted a quick fix of a game when I was on the go.

    Just reading through and noticed this is £2.49 so picked it up.

    Never really played any basketball games, but watching The Last Dance has got me interested - I'm expecting to be truly awful...

    The controls are weird and too complex.

    @BigOrkWaaagh

    Jumped on this myself this morning. It’s the VR game ported over, reviewed quite well I think.

    Been playing a bit of lonely mountain downhill l. It’s super chill and rage inducing at the same time. But I like it. Has a real nice vibe to it.

    @BigOrkWaaagh managed to grab this too. Worst case, they'll remove the purchase and refund me... although I wonder if they can do that if your account region has been changed back.

    People are mad at Nintendo for taking down the Mario 64 PC port. Because Nintendo is somehow in the wrong for wanting to protect their valuable IPs.

    Why does Nintendo continually get shamed for protecting their IPs?

    Maybe they should make them available on current gen systems and make some profit?

    I’m enjoying The Persistence very much. It’s slow paced action horror, but a whole lot of fun for those seeking a Dead Space/System Shock vibe. It runs really well in handheld mode, too.

    Not sure how long it'll last as I'm guessing it's an error, but theres a new five nights a freddy game on the switch that's 27 quid on the UK store. If you change your location to Switzerland then go back on the store it works out at about 30 odd pence. It worked for me.

    I have said this for quite a while. Nintendo and Microsoft should try and do some deal where Nintendo are allowed to bring the old Rare titles to their console, in return for bringing some of their titles to the Xbox family. Both get a bigger library out of it and consumers wouldn’t complain. At least, not that I could imagine.

    Recently started Astral Chain. For some reason I always bounce off Platinum’s games despite most people loving them. (Vanquish is the only one I have ever finished). So far Astral Chain seems interesting but for some reason also feels a bit off to me.

    @PazJohnMitch never finished it either, hate that hacky slashy style combat. Not sure why I bought it!
