    The joy con drift on my Switch got too annoying (someone at Squenix thought that moving the LS in any direction to advance dialog text in DQXI was a good idea... Argh!), so I ordered one of these Joy Con replacement kit
    Reviews of these kits seem good.
    Done! Pretty straightforward procedure. iFixit has a good step by step guide. No noticeable difference compared to the original sticks, so it's as good as new :)

    Another strong recommendation for Hori split pad pro. You sacrifice gyro aiming, but have had zero issues with comfort or reliability. I understand there are full-featured versions with both rumble and gyro now, and vibrating nipple clamps.

    So my switch lite now has an issue with the left stick. Its not the drift, however when I push the stick to the right thr registering of the movement is intermittent. Playing hades, push it to the right ill start running and then stop suddenly etc.

    I've tried recalibration and it seems a bit better. Just wondering if anyone else had the same issue?

    Are you paying docked? If so, it happens to me when the TV is in the way of the dock.

    It's a Switch Lite, so I'd say no.

    That sounds like a proper fault. I think my girlfriend has the same issue with her right stick. It cuts out momentarily. She'll turn right in minecraft but come to a complete halt after half a second. She then had to let go of the stick and push it to the right again to get a response.

    Conpressedair didn't fix it, so we're looking at warranty options

    Yeah that sounds like mine. Luckily I have till dec on warranty. Do you lose all your saves etc?

    The only saves at risk are Splatoon and Animal Crossing. They will require system transfers, but I think we can negotiate that.

    @DangerousDave_87 You can back up your Animal Crossing save now, but you have to do in inside the game.

    Oh yeah! Dont you have to email or call to get it transferred to a new console? Better than nothing, though.

    All these rumours of a new switch being announced this week and honestly I'm not even sure if I'm interested anymore, there better be some big game annoucements this time.

    I am very interested, I am also very pessimistic that I will beat the scalpers.

    On June 15th, Nintendo will host its all-virtual E3 2021 activity. Tune in at 17:00 (UK time) for a Nintendo Direct presentation, featuring roughly 40 minutes of information exclusively on Nintendo Switch software, mostly releasing in 2021.

    Immediately after the Nintendo Direct, continue watching for roughly 3 hours of deep dives on gameplay for a handful of Nintendo Switch games in Nintendo Treehouse: Live.
    Mostly releasing in 2021... so we may therefore see Metroid prime 4 and Zelda botw 2 then!

    Like I said earlier. The battery is key for me upgrading. Roughly 2 hours of playtime on heavy intensive games. We're getting Game Gear level of battery.

    I have the same on my OG switch, 2 hours or so on Rise.

    If they can deliver more 60fps games on handheld mode that will do it for me. Maybe allow the devs something like the Series S vs X does in terms of tailoring the graphics vs performance.

    Plus having to keep swapping carts with my son and him losing progress on whatever game he is playing when he goes to sleep is annoying both of us :-)

    Just got World's End Club today and it has a little booklet in the box talking about the characters etc.

    Obviously this conversation has been done to death years ago when publishers stopped putting inserts into games and I had totally forgotten about it, but thought it was excellent.

    Reminds me that Trails of Cold Steel has a proper chunky one too, lovely service.

    I'd be well up for a new Switch. Especially if they can somehow give the 720p docked games a boost to 1080p. Find the 720p games look a bit naff on my 4K TV.

    Never play in handheld mode.

    I'm fine with 720p i just want a 60fps experience when docked. MHR hurts my face on a monitor.

    I so desperately want an upgraded Switch and had put away some cash to pay for it, however, I've just had to fork out unexpectedly for a new PC so may have to wait until next year now.

    I have enjoyed the fallout from well-respected so-called 'insiders' getting the announcement of this so wrong on Twitter. It was definitely last Thursday, then definitely last Friday, then definitely definitely yesterday.

    Unless a shadow drop appears today (which knowing Nintendo is quite possible!) they've got that wrong too.

    Did anyone actually say it was definitely going to be announced on a particular day? All I read was that it was very likely to be announced before E3, which is still a week away.

    Fucking Nintendo so annoying. The switch my son and I play on is not the primary console for my account (because itís always at home so connected to the internet)

    So he canít play games Iíve bought on his profile.

    If he plays a game ive bought on my profile, then I canít play games on my lite, EVEN IF IVE BOUGHT A FUCKING CARTRIDGE because Nintendo.
