    it does my head in

    i know nintendo really invented the whole 4 button abxy combo (feel free to prove me wrong there might have been others), but its back to front now for me cause im so used to xbox

    so i've learned where A and B are, but if a button prompt says X or Y, which xenoblade chronicles 2 does all the time, I fumble and have no idea what button to press

    wish xbox just stuck with what nintendo had, or made new symbols

    Im With you there even though I grew up with the NES and the SNES. I have been playing alot PC and Sony based games and I got used to the button layout of the 360/One controller and the same goes with the PS controllers as well. Since the MS controller got alot of innovation and ideas from the Dreamcast controller so I can understand why they stuck with the button layout. However maybe they didn't want to confuse veteran Xbox users by changing the controller layout. Also maybe Nintendo has a patient on their ABYX layout so no one else could use it.?

    May I ask you. I prefer digital download games. My 64 gb memory card is not free for doom to download. What if I put another 64 gb memory and swap current one. Download doom and play. Will other 2 digital downloaded games will be fine when I swap?

    Bought 256 GB sd card which was very expensive. moved Nintendo folder to PC from previous 64gb, then placed 256 GB to pc and moved that Nintendo folder to this card. works great. at your notice my friends.

    bought and downloading Xenoblade 2 game. Same me as usual. while gaming, spending money to games which I don’t play a lot anyway. :(

    Gold points can now be used on the switch in the eshop.

    1 point = £0.01.

    Also, the amount of gold points you get on eshop purchases and game cards increased. So if you've got any games you haven't registered yet then have a go now and you'll get more points than when you did so even last month

    5% on digital purchases 1% on physical

    Wolf 2 port looks good (possibly better than Doom?).

    Can't wait for Crash N Sane trilogy to come out as well.

    I just picked up Hyrule Warriors Definitive edition and I am glad that they ported that over to the Switch for portability purposes. The Wii-U version didn't have the feature where you could play the game on the game pad and not use the TV. Plus it has best of the Wii-U version and 3ds versions.

    Nintendo has bought quality to the Switch. There's been questionable ports by 3rd parties, but, some good stuff as well. My kids love it and its given me a lot of fun too. Enjoying Crash trilogy atm.

    You got that right. There were some 3rd party games were not optimized very well in the portable mode but ran good while docked. Also WWE 2k18 could have been a much better port if it wasn't rushed. One game that I am hoping that gets ported to the Switch (even though it may not happen) is Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE if Nintendo and Atlus are willing to do it. It could sell better on the Switch than it did on the Wii-U. That game was treat to play and it tided me over until Persona 5 came out.
