Joy Con Repair!

Email from Corbin

Hey bill I am a fan of the show and have been listening for a while and I recently got back in to the game legend of Zelda botw and because of this I have come close to 100% but there is one thing in the game that I just can’t buy and that is the amiibo exclusivitie items but I can’t go out and spend 600 dollars on 22 amiibo to just mostly use in this game so I went on amazon and looked up botw NFC cards and I bought a pack of 22 for 40 dollars. What do you think of People like me buying this love the show and thanks for reading  ]

Mr. Bill (Oh noooo),

In light of all this controversy regarding the Nintendo Switch and Joy-Con drifting, I wanted to put in my two cents as well as reveal a larger part of the issue. So, my Joy-Cons began experiencing the drift several months ago, but was of little consequence because I primarily use the Xenoblade 2 Pro Controller. Well, as of last week, my Pro Controller has begun to experience the drift issue as well now. In my, albeit foolish, attempt to repair it, I managed to strip one of the screws. With that being said, I sympathize with Nintendo’s plight and honestly would have been okay paying the four or five dollars they were originally charging for the repairs. Being free is obviously preferable, but even a few dollars would have been better than dishing out eighty dollars for another pair of Joy-Cons. Since it seems my Pro Controller is dead in the water, I was curious if you had seen this new Pro Controller by 8bitdo, which seems promising. I have never experienced their products personally, but know their name is unanimous with quality.

The 8bitdo Pro Controller:

The condensed version of all of this is Pro Controller are beginning to experience drifting to, but from everything I have read, if you can take it apart, spray some condensed air around the base of the joysticks, and everything should be kosher.

Thank you for your great work! Long time listener and deeply appreciate your content!

I remain a humble and loyal listener,
Montague.

TL;DR-

If you want a real D pad for the Switch, and play in handheld often, buy this-Do not buy one as your main joycon. swap it out when needed-Looks cool, feels really good. 

-It’s cheap and well worth the price-I’m not a reviewer or important person, just someone who loves video games.

I’ve attached a picture of the Hori Joycon on my Switch (and also a dog); I think it goes really well with the green.

Also, thank you (and your awesome wife) for the drawstring bag! I just got it today and it’s so damn cool! Looks like great quality too. I love the little pocket on the inside, always gotta have one of those.

Thanks! Love your work!

Hi Bill:  I remember you said you bought a 400 gig S.D. card?  Was it the Sandisk extreme?  It’s $93 on Amazon…thanks for your time…

It was the SanDisk Ultra

Email from Vincent

Hey Bill- I had a thought about mobile ports. what would you think about Nintendo releasing their first party mobile games (Super Mario Run, Pocket Camp, Dr Mario world, etc) on the switch? The eShop seems to be flooded with mobile ports anyway, but Nintendo’s are noticeably missing. The only one that goes between the eShop and iOS is Pokemon Quest. It might be fun to play some of those games on the switch instead of on the phone- especially for those who done like touch screen controls.  
Thanks

Hey Bill, 

One thing I think people are overlooking about the OG Switch is that it is supposed to be easily hackable. Because of that I intend to hang onto mine indefinitely, even after I upgrade to another model at some point. One day it will be an awesome portable way to play ALL of my retro favorites on the go as well as my Switch library. 

Email From Isaac

On the latest lite Switch, you discussed wanting a normal Switch that sells without a dock. Well, in Japan they do have a skew that ships without one. 
Now I guess they assume all Americans are snotty Xbox players that only play on the TV, (kidding of course) so they don’t sell it in America, but if you can find it cheap to import, it’s an option. 

Thanks for the show! 

Email from Joeseph

Hi Bill,

Just wanted to send some quick thoughts on the Nintendo Switch Lite. I’ve been listening to a lot of feedback on your show and online and I’m surprised at how many seem down on the price and the new Switch Lite itself.

The name I get doesn’t make much sense now that it doesn’t dock—but the name “Switch” is so popular right now that of course Nintendo is going to keep the name. Plus, it so similar to the Nintendo Switch and plays almost all of the same games so I think changing the name would create too much confusion.

For the price—I think $200 is spot on. Nintendo is one of the few gaming companies that actually make money on their hardware. Dropping the price of the Switch Lite too low would basically kill sales for the actual Nintendo Switch. The $200 price tag immediately sounds more tempting than the $300 price of the Switch and many gamers won’t care about the dock, HD rumble or detachable joycon—they want to play the games that the Switch has to offer, without coughing up another $100.

Having said that—I think it won’t take long before the price of both the Switch and Switch Lite drop as the new Playstation and Xbox are released. I would imagine a new Switch Pro is right around the corner to compete with the announcements of the new consoles from their competitors.

I’m excited for the Switch Lite and I love the colors!! I already own a Switch but I’ll definitely be picking up a Switch Lite on release.

Thanks, Bill!! Loving the more frequent episodes 🙂 

Email from John

Hey Bill good morning: 
       I will make this short and sweet. 
First I kind of got a curious question for. I been listening to your show since before switch was released. I actually was shopping for wii u at time when I saw a Facebook post about nx. That was a year and a half before release date of switch. So I been listening since than but I have unlimited data with T mobile and stream every thing and I know you always thanking people for downloading your show but do you get the credit for people who stream podcast with their data.

Now about the switch light correct me if i am wrong but if you have the OG switch and pay for Nintendo Switch Online would it be as easy as just uploading your save data from cloud backup and I think you could even use that method if you upgraded your sd card. 
I am with a lot of people switch lite is not for me. I like playing on my TV and being able to play in bed. 

I just thought I comment because tour last show someone had good idea leaving OG in dock and using the lite for undock mode.

Email from Matt

Long time listener, big MUA fan. 
Not sure how much experience you have with the series but the original MUA had alot of weird camera angles, even awkward and forced at times. They try to keep things fresh and give perspective depending on scenarios. I personally found heroic to be the best camera angle. If you have played hyrule warriors, also made by team ninja, it makes it feel more like their previous game. But the distant and weird forced angles are par for the course. 
Keep up the good podcasting fellow New Yorker.

Initial thoughts on Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Camera is horrible

The game shines in local multiplayer

I didn’t enjoy playing on Heroic difficulty, Friendly was way more fun. Ignoring the synergy stuff made the game a lot more fun as well.

The game does an extremely bad job of teaching you how to play.

I like it and will be playing more

Hi Bill, on your show you were talking about Nintendo not censoring games and instead offering parental controls. Their parental controls are pretty anemic though.

Mario Maker 2 restricts all online interaction with parental controls, kids aren’t allowed to download levels or anything. My only choice seems to be to whitelist the game for my kids. The problem is user comments. I’m aware that some people will build inappropriate things into their levels, but that is much less common than inappropriate user comments. As a matter of fact on the very first level I downloaded there was one. I’m sure popular levels are more likely to have them.

I know comments can be turned off, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to restrict a user from turning them back on. It’s not a good situation. I couldn’t even find a way to report the comment, though I would think there must be one.

It’s a pretty sad situation when I can’t let my kids freely play Mario on their own. The internet isn’t going to change, so Nintendo should give us more granularity in the parental controls. They have a smart phone app dedicated to it, and aren’t doing much with it. I’m happy to have the choices we do on switch without censorship, but they need to give parents better tools (and folders to hide some of those game icons).

A mini quote from Nintendo…

“We acknowledge that there have been reports [about this]. Answering to rumours and speculations would end up stealing surprises from our customers and also be unprofitable to all of our shareholders, so we have no answer to that. As a general theory, we are always performing development of new hardware.”
