    As Phate said (because I told him :p ), the must have changes are:
    - Right stick tilt
    - Up jump off
    - Either a shoulder button or A being set to jump for short hops

    My controls (2.3 Million GSP if that matters) are:
    B Attack
    Y Special
    X/A jump
    dpad - All shield (mash dpad to get out of grabs, being buried, dizzy etc)
    ZL/ZR Shield (you need 2 shield buttons for positional shielding without rolling)
    L/R Throw

    Appreciate that, thanks! I'll try special on Y next for sure as I think that feels more natural and B definitely feels right as normal attack.

    I need to get to grips with the block system, and remember to use it :D

    Yet I'll end up getting it again just to 'make sure'. I still spent about 20-30h on it even with my perceived lack of enjoyment at the time.

    It's odd, when I watched some reviews of it last night I felt excited about it again, but then when I play I don't feel it, or maybe it's because I never adjusted to the pace of it.

    Well my switch collection has expanded slightly this Christmas... form just Zelda, Odyssey, Rabids and Mario kart to also have:
    Captain Toad Treasure tracker
    Starlink
    Diablo 3
    Xenoblade 2

    But considering:
    Valkyria chronicles 4
    Civ 6 (but have both of these already on pc)

    Octopath traveller
    Capcom beat em up collection
    Starlink complete dlc (but haven’t actually played starlink)

    Any issues with the above games?

    No issues, just to say I'm really enjoying it, def. worth a play at the current price, shame the ridiculous price on launch and death of toys to life will probably mean we never see a follow up.

    I'd really like to play Gris, but £14.49 for an indie game that lasts 3 hours is a bit much don't you think?

    The Switch is great as a platform for indies but I don't think they necessarily warrant the standard Nintendo tax.

    Not an indie game but I'd love to pick up Doom on the Switch just to see how it plays as pretty amazing they got it running at all but is £40, can be had on the PS4 for £6... I know it's a different system but c'mon guys!

    There isn't really a pace, it's a game to be taken as you see fit. Personally loved it, I can see it's flawed though. Lack of story isn't one of my complaints though, as the memories and searching for them fleshed out the world enough. I loved how well the world worked and how it reacted as you would expect so much more than many other games

    Gris was available from the Russia eShop for about £4

    **edit**
    Just checked, it's up to about £14 now.

    That's what I meant about the pace, there was always a bit more sense of urgency in the others due to the more linear approach and that's what I never really got used to.

    As an aside, ebay is 15% off today above £20 spend and that applies to 'normal' people auctions etc too.

    Breath of the Wild is the only Zelda I've really enjoyed, in fact I love it and consider it one of the finest games ever made.

    I had Zelda II on the NES but was beyond me at that age, I tried again with a Links Awakening on the Game Boy but all the trudging back and fourth killed it for me, dipped in and out over the years and had hoped I'd 'get it' with Wind Waker but was another swing and a miss for me.

    Keep wanting to try out Majoras Mask or Twilight Princess but don't think they'll hold up now, it's different if you played them at the time and loved them, that's how I feel about Oblivion as I know it's not as good technically etc. as Skyrim but will always be the superior game to me.

    It isn’t something done on purpose, just because the main indie games I would get on this I already have on pc.

    Celeste is something I have held off on until it gets a discount. I will probably pick up tiny metal too when it gets a discount on the 7th jan.

    The 15% off eBay meant I couldn't resist valkyria for £25...

    The rest of my potential purchases will probably be via eshop.

    Some advice guys.

    I currently have
    Zelda
    MK8
    Mario
    Rabbids
    Dark Souls
    Xenoblade

    I've finished all of these. I don't play a huge amount of games anymore but I have enjoyed pretty much every one of them my fav was Xenoblade.

    What should I be considering next? maybe smash?

    They still hold up very well, particularly MM on the 3DS, but from your post you just don't seem to be a fan of Zelda games.

    Never finished TP on Wii due to whatever reason, didn't have a Wii U at the time the HD was released either so really hoping it comes out.

    Into the Breach seems promising, nice challenge. I need to get used to it but so far seems great

    Ha.. you should throw the odd match to keep playing with sane people ;)

    Are you now happy with the online? I've barely scratched the surface so will be some time before I feel comfortable with a given character again
