I'm guessing: a Mario-themed alarm clock.

If it is, it had better not make Mario-themed noises. I don't think that associating the franchise with the feelings "dammit I have to go to work already" that one gets from an alarm clock is exactly what Nintendo is going for.

I recently got the Switch version of Sakuna Of Rice And Ruin. It's a pretty fun game so far; I'm finding the blend of rice-growing and fighting demons to be quite entertaining.

One tip: look up traditional and modern Japanese rice growing and you'll get a leg up on the game.

Realistic rice-farming sounds dope. Oh well, that’s another entry on the to-buy list. I really need to finish a few more of my games to make room in the backlog.

Anyone here have any experience with Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus on Switch? Our own page lists it as a Porting Disaster (but who knows if that's up to date?), and combined with other sources I'm wary about buying it. But there is no way my laptop can handle the game.

Ok, so I have a question and am not sure where to ask. So you know how FFX requires you to download FFX-2 in order to play and that you need the cartridge in order to even access it? Does it matter which cartridge you use, so long as it's a copy of FFX? I'm asking because my Switch and some games were stolen and I have only recently replaced the Switch. I'm able to redownload all my data, FFX-2 included, but without that FFX cartridge I obviously can't play it.

So basically I'm wondering if I need to get a whole new copy to even play both games, or if I can get a used copy of FFX and be able to access my FFX-2 data with that copy.

Interesting question. I have no idea what the actual answer is, but if I had to guess, I would assume that you can use any copy. Save and profile data is stored on the system, so all that's on the cart should be the game, so any copy of the game should work.

Huh, didn't know FFX/X2 collection worked like that.

Any copy of the game card should work; I'm not sure software is allowed access to the per-card unique ID strings (that the OS and the eShop use to determine if a game card has had its gold points redeemed).

Also, FFX/X-2 doesn't require the download of X-2 in order to play X, but the Switch OS is kinda stupid on that point: if you've ever downloaded DLC for a game (and the data for X-2 counts), the Switch will try to redownload it alongside any patches if it ever get deleted.

Doom: Eternal's Switch port might have been cancelled. GameStop is cancelling preorders under that assumption.

Alternatively, the game is going to end up digital only.

Well, shit. I hope that it goes digital, if nothing else. I don't want to buy another console just to play it.

I’m having trouble with controller drift. Both of my left Joycons have drifted so far to the left, they won’t even calibrate anymore. The dot stays pinned to the side, even after a full hour of waiting. Any suggestions?

I was dealing with some Joycon drift while playing through Mario Galaxy. Mario would occasionally start walking to the left even when I wasn't touching the analog stick. Decided to just say fuck it and got a pro controller.

I'm either gonna fix mine, or get a pro. Maybe both if I can.

Unfortunately, neither is gonna happen for a while. Maybe not even during Christmas.

Read this post for my first theory, and this post for my second one.

November 21 is a BIG day in Nintendo release history! We have the SNES, Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country 2, Ocarina of Time Pokemon Gold/Silver, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, Pokemon Colosseum, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Super Mario 3D World, and Super Smash Bros for Wii U!

And Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which famously released at the same time as Smash Wii U.

... least, I remember people worrying that the eShop would be destroyed that day.

Is there any way you can install a digital game to the SD card immediately, or can you only transfer it later? Just grabbed Xenoblade Chronicles 2 since it's on sale (along with a bunch of other games) and I'd rather just put it on the SD from the start.

I missed the part where that's my problem.

I believe the system prioritizes saving files on the SD card over the internal memory.
