I will be playing Mario World or Yoshi's Island this weekend.

Now give us joycons with dpads (without analog sticks,please). These games are perfect for handheld mode.

Would love the option of a symmetrical joycon, all it would take is to release a left one with the stick at the lower half to make a PlayStation feeling setup. Would make a few games ported to the switch really good.



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

Tried Demon's Crest yesterday because I had never played it before and it's a pretty decent game but then I switched to ALttP because it's awesome!



Signature goes here!

I need to get up to speed on switch online. I am curious how easy it would be to run tournaments for the switch games that are part of the subscription service. Please send me a note and or reply here if you are interested in doing this. Years ago, I ran an ongoing king of the hill with Game Room for the 360. I am for this with the Switch. Once I hut the threshold of posts I will put a thread up. I will look to do a mix of speed runs and high scores.

I just played Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts on Switch. It was nice, I thought. Then I played Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts on my SNES console and a CRT and thought.... wooooooaaaah! The controls are so direct and precise!!! The same with Super Mario World. In Super Tennis it was hard to even get one ball, although I played the game 50+ hours. I only have 20ms input lag in game mode on my flat TV, but the emulator on Switch seems to add quite a lot lag...

The games, which are emulating the Super FX chip (Star Fox, Yoshi's Island), don't even run properly with only a few frames per second. That's ridiculous.
Well, it's better than nothing, but far away from a real SNES experience...



I just beat Mario World recently so I went for Link To The Past in anticipation of Link's Awakening!

@Bolded What?

I'm genuinely wondering if the issue is with your system here, or... maybe the underlined suggests that regardless of the quality of the emulation this was never going to appeal to you.

I'm definitely going to be grabbing one of those $30 SNES controllers, but I wonder if one of the 8bitDo controllers might just be the better way to go. Thoughts anyone?



The first game I started was Super Metroid and, ah, it felt so good!
