    i grabbed wonder boy dragons trap and steam world dig in the sale, ill check my internet test soon for speed gonna be playing mario kart soon :)

    edit: getting 39.6 Mbps down and 9.7 Mbps up

    steam downloads games at around 1.6 or 1.7 MBps.

    make sure if any one gets one of these the dock wont close on the back and it has to be the usb 3 version or it wont work but for 12 quid odd it seems decent :)

    Got Celeste and hollow knight yesterday as I have a trip coming up and want to take the switch.

    Had a blast on the first two Celeste levels in bad on hand held mode. It was fun, but I may need to play with a pro pad. Will keep trying over the next few nights

    I'm struggling with the strawberries on later levels because the pro pad keeps giving diagonals instead of the cardinal directions.

    You choose two excellent games.

    I've had a bit of a problem with buying games recently... I just can't stop!
    - Still not completed Katana Zero
    - Not touched Thimbleweed Park yet
    - Bought FF7 and slowly making progress
    - Grabbed Celeste on the cheap
    - Super Mario Deluxe not been touched

    And to make matters worse I've got a few games on pre-order... AAAHHHHHHH!

    Only buy games on sale. I have 10 games that I haven't started yet, but they were all between 25-66% off, plus an extra 10-20% cheaper by buying from SA, so it's not too bad.

    Mine works fine, but I switched to revolut for the best exchange rates.

    Darkwood is out today. Indie horror game that got good reviews on PC, just waiting for feedback on Switch performance and I think I'll jump in.

    I am sooooo interested in Mario Maker 2!

    I need to get back into gaming. I am falling behind.

    There does look like there's a ton of content in Mario Maker 2. Unfortunately I've no interest in creating levels so I don't really know how I feel about it. Can you just play it and not build stuff?

    Yes, a lot of people like to play the community created stuff.

    Thats how I plan on playing. I am not creative enough to make anything decent nor have the time. However, the ability to play something decent and different literally everytime I switch it on?

    Hells to the yeah!

    Make sure you get the treasure groove version.
    They've really made it a good game for non creators this time.

    Tonight I actually got a few hours gaming in and made some actual progress on Dark Souls (shock :eek: ) - and I got a lazy weekend ahead. Looking forward to putting some serious time into this, as I don't like having a lot of games oustanding. It is bugging me I haven't even put Yoshi Cart in the Switch yet :p

    It felt great to game again :cool:
