    RCT3 is a decent port but it does have some performance issues. Never enough to ruin the experience though.

    The issues I had were mainly on the water park expansion levels.

    The controls can also be really fiddly and it likes to select different things than you are pointing the cursor at.

    Has anyone ever had a language issue (or other issue) with any game when buying from a foreign eshop?

    I haven't, but the eshop prices site warns of regional differences if buying Street Fighter 2 Anniversary. Currently £19 on the Russian eshop.

    Think you'll be fine :

    FAQ
    Can I buy from every other Nintendo EShop website?
    You can only buy games from your countries of EMEA region: Americas, Europe and South Africa, Asia.
    Is this method legal?
    Totally! Nintendo knows there is the possibility of buying game from other countries.
    Will the game be in my language?
    Yes. Also, you can switch back to your country for downloading the game on your console.

    I think this is more if you download outside of your continent - so if you're buying from Brazil or Argentina or where they often have great prices. I've never had a problem and I region hop all the time but I stick to Europe & South Africa.

    Yeah but I was mainly focusing on the 2D shooters. Progear is worth £10 on its own. It's hard to get excited about more streetfighter 2 but if 2D fighters are your thing it also contains cyberbots

    It does. Pack 2 has Street Fighter II: World Warrior and Final Fight though.

    I was trying to decide between the 2 packs, then I realised I could just get practically all the Street Fighter games on the Anniversary Collection.

    I've bought from foreign eshops quite a few times now, but I've always changed my region in my account, and then purchased the game via the eshop on the console itself.

    The FAQs would suggest you can do the region change/purchase entirely in a browser, then switch your region back to UK, then fire up the Switch and download the game.

    @Zerobob

    Not sure on that, i've always done the same, browser - change region - switch - eshop, buy - browser - change region back to UK.

    Altho i dont wait for the game to finish downloading before switching back, and that has been fine.

    You can do exactly this, I do it all in the browser all the time. In fact you don't even have to fire up the Switch, it will start downloading magically the moment you click Buy in whatever language you happen to be in.

    Although, when you do switch back to UK in your browser the download will pause and you'll have to log in on the Switch for it to resume.

    Does anyone have one of the 8bitdo Switch Arcade Sticks? They look pretty good - looks quite easy to mod the buttons/gate and the sticks work on PC too. Tempted.

    Got my joy-con back from Nintendo. Seemed to have fixed the drifting also fixed the issue with them sliding off when connected. See how long it holds I guess..

    @mumtoucher Hey, no worries. Use your weaponry to destroy every single machine that you encounter. Except in real life. Maybe don’t do that.

    @BigOrkWaaagh He's talking about Assassin's Creed, silly. Mario is now in the 2rd game for some reason. He fumbles around on all fours in the snowy woods like a deer, waiting to be hunted.

    I thought they were maybe retrospectively adding Mario SFX to all of Animal Collective's albums.
