Ha! Ha!!

I actually wish it was a better picture as I'd like to compare it to my spreadsheet to see exactly how accurate that "Every Switch cartridge" statement really is!! The resolution sucks though, and I can't make out some of the boxarts very clearly...   :(

The count seems pretty close (92), but my gut says there's something missing - but since I can't really be sure, I guess I'll have to take his word for it...  



Around the Network

Bought 2 new games:

Outlast
Mulaka



Just added Payday 2.



So, new ones:

- Bayonetta 1
- Bayonetta 2
- Poly Bridge



Update, I finally picked up Rocket League and also Oxenfree.



Around the Network

Just picked up 2 more titles

- Mutant Mudds collection (on sale in the US eshop for 7.50
- Piczle Lines DX (with 105 hours of Picross S played , going back over puzzles to get better times I figured I'll try another puzzler on Switch and a recent update just added a free extra 100 puzzles to it)


From counting up the hours in another thread my Switch is heading for close to 1000 hours mostly played in handheld mode... but now I'm starting to have a problem with the system, wondering if anyone else has encountered it but would probably be to the sheer amount of use my console gets while in my hands but basically the left Joycon can be released from the system without the need to press the button on the top of it, with a small amount of pressure under it I can pop it out... meaning that holding the console I now have to keep this in mind and hold the body of the machine rather than the weight via the Joycon.

Just sucky because I'm not sure if the damage is to the Joycon or the body of the system, if it's the joycon I can replace it for a small amount, but if it's the system I'm in slight trouble (although it's under warranty but I don't wanna be without it for the time it would take to repair)

 

 

Rather annoying....



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Wow, someone other than me bought Piczle Lines DX...

As for your problem, the easiest way to check if it's the Joy-Con or the console that is at fault is obviously sliding another left Joy-Con on and see how that works. Since you don't have that, you can compare the two Joy-Cons you do have. The thing that keeps the Joy-Cons in place is only a small plastic part inside the Joy-Con rail at the height of the release button. The console itself has no moving parts, so it's unlikely that the issue lies with it. The problem is probably that the moving part on the Joy-Con has some damage, so it doesn't fixate the Joy-Con like it used to anymore. Perhaps the part was simply of low production quality or at one point you removed the Joy-Con without pressing the release button properly and that had some long term consequences.

As far as I know, EU laws make warranty of 24 months the minimum that companies are obligated to offer, so regardless of what's broken, you can get a repair for free and the only costs you could have concern the shipping costs on the way to Nintendo's repair center; Nintendo will cover the shipping costs for the return.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

@bold - Seems like a cool little time wasting game, my favourite type! Bit of a shame it doesn't record the times that it takes you to complete each puzzle as that allows for replayability in Picross S since I went back to some of the ones I got stumped in and redone those.

@my issue, aye, I don't have another joycon and the only person I know who has a switch I won't be seeing for maybe 2 weeks to a month. When it comes to what caused it... my Switch is almost exclusively just a handheld, the dock hasn't been connected to my TV/Projector in at least 4 months think the last time was just to play Doom 2016 using a GC controller for a laugh but even then, the Joycons are rarely if ever disconnected from the sides of the system but... if you seen the thread about time spent on the Switch http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8740244 mine has been held up by the two joycons for an awful long time, that's what made me think it could be the metal on the sides of the system just having slowly opened up a little bit, I'll take a look in a while when I get it back to my workbench.

Still though... if I get 1000 hours per joycon that's not a bad rate of play for what... 40euros to replace it? :D I have psn+ for the last year now and it's barely given me 20 hours of use in total I think for that 50, yearly joycon replacements might prove more cost effective per hour of gaming!

 

 

 - Thanks for the reply btw, I see that little tab that retracts on the joycon now that you're talking about.

...you can add me as another Piczle Lines DX owner, too! It went on sale, so I bought it!! ;)

You can compare your left and right Joy-Con and see if the retractable part looks different on the left Joy-Con. You can also make use of warranty to only pay a fraction of a replacement.

I can't say how good Nintendo's customer service in the UK/Ireland is, but for the German-speaking countries of Europe it's great. There's even a chat on their customer service website, so you can describe your problem and get quick answers without having to do a phone call. I've had to send in my left Joy-Con because its analog stick was malfunctioning on top of disconnects in TV mode; I got it back in seven days. Most of that time can be attributed to standard mail service, because the e-mails I got from Nintendo's repair center made it clear that they had my Joy-Con for only a day.
