    My only small criticism is that the little pullstring bag it comes with is only big enough to hold the dock itself, not the world power adaptors or cables.
    Just googled it and it looks quite cool. How much did it cost you including delivery (assuming to the UK)?

    Yeah, I noticed Bioshock is a cart and then another 31 GB download 😅

    That's normal though isn't it? Otherwise you'd have issues with games being heavily compressed to fit on a cart.

    Or maybe, and this is a bit out there I know, they could put it on a bigger cart?

    Yeah I head though that with bio shock itís a portion of each game on the cart and the rest as a Download. Whereas with borderlands you can play 2 or pre sequel without using the cart.

    Bigger cards cost a lot more money apparently

    Yeah, that's why developers try hard to put it on the smallest cart possible. It's also why cutscenes and sound are usually compressed on Switch ports.

    The text is ridiculously small on Bioshock Infinite handheld, almost unreadable. I don't understand why they don't change the font for handheld play.

    I bit the £80 bullet on Thursday and finally went for a 512gb card. Pretty glad I did as xcom and borderlands take up quite a bit of space. I would have had to delete half of my games I like to play occasionally.

    They've made a right mess of Borderlands on the store.

    Handsome: £34.99
    GOTY: £24.99

    Then hidden away as a bundle within Handsome is Legendary, which strangely is listed at £39.99 but immediately under that it says 'total if purchased seperately: £34.99'.

    What is what?!

    Would be great to see a UK "native" version of this! Doesn't seem likely though.

    Handsome is BL2 and pre sequel
    GOTY is just BL1
    Legendary has 1,2 and pre sequel

    Tempted to get The Outer Worlds this week, as I love the look of it, but think I'll wait for the reviews and some performance analysis before I put some money down.

    Getting Bioshock and Borderlands running well on the Switch is obviously impressive, but The Outer Worlds is a current gen open-world game, which (I would imagine) is a more challenging conversion...

    I liked Outer Worlds for a while, but it got tiring fast. It poses as Fallout in space, but there are too many flaws to overlook them all. I expected a bit more of Obsidian, to be honest.

    Luckily I played it for free because of Game Pass, I might have been more disappointed if I had paid the full price.

    Outer Worlds will apparently target native resolution in both docked and portable, at 30fps! I somehow doubt it will meet that target consistently tbh.

    @Kay

    The genki dock wasn't cheap at £65 (to UK), but it was one of the few docks I found that is specifically designed to not 'brick' the Switch like some other cheaper 3rd party docks have been known too in the past.

    You can also use it to dock other usb c devices and also as a portable charger for your phone/switch.

    It feels very well made, picture/sound seems identical to the official dock, with a great quality USB cable included - but I can understand that some people may scoff at the price. Then again, the official Dock is £80 on its own on the Nintendo website, out of stock and not portable.....

    Been getting into the Final Fantasy 10 remaster, but I swear there's some input lag occuring between the wireless controllers and LCD TV that just make a few mechanics a lot harder than they should be. The lightning dodging challenge is going to be near impossible I fear.

    Had my eye on Super Blood Hockey for a while and finally picked it up today while itís on a big sale. Itís pretty good! Definitely feels like the old arcade games where itís just based on fun and less on physics etc. Iíd recommend it if you want a quick hockey fix or if youíre a casual fan and just want to score goals and beat up the other team while doing it.

    It's on my wishlist but haven't bit the bullet (puck) yet. Is it as good as Blades of Steel on the NES?

    @richardiox Never played it so couldnít say. But itís pretty fun just based on the one game I played and I believe franchise mode is good too. Different people to select for your team (enforcer, playmaker, sniper) all offering different stats so you can make your team how you want it. Physics are as good as youíd want them to be for an arcade game with momentum as you slide around.

    Itís good! And only £3.82 from South Africa.

    Decided to get RE4 after not finishing it on Gamecube way back when.
    (At 50% off it is finally at the price it should have been all along)

    You really need to adjust to the tank-like controls, but after an hour I'm getting the hang of it (although the camera is still a bit twitchy). Great fun so far!

    Just that horrible moment when I looked at 'Current Offers' and spotted that it's jumped up to over 1000 (from 597 this morning), then checked my Wish List and realised nearly every single game I'm after is discounted!

    So The Outer Worlds seems to be one to avoid then...
