Damn. Thanks for the pic and the heads up. I'm definitely going for the plastic one now.

 

Anyone got any good recommendations for a plastic screen protector? The Hori one should be the best, right?

How long after applying the screen protector did you wait to place it in the dock? Curious because most have a curing process that takes the better part of a day to bond. Could just also have been the bond that company personally used as well.

Why is everyone getting offended at someone trying to Return a game to a different store, how does this impact you directly????

Everyone has to have an opinion these days on a thread about buy 2 get 1. I could personally care less. If the person wants to take the risk and the store wants to take it back its between them. As long as I get my games tomorrow im happy and life goes on.

The joycon connectivity issues, save data is tied to one system, and the launch lineup are some of my biggest problems with the system. Hopefully they fix the connectivity issue before April 28, when i plan to pick one up the switch. There are probably a few more i forgot.

I've experienced none of those problems today. Neither did my friend. Just got back from a all afternoon switch gaming session with him and the hardware ran fine. One minor lag issue online but nothing I haven't experienced before in any game.

Bomberman is disappointing, performance feels slow (30fps lock?) on single player, and the online multi is a combination of performance + latency to be nearly unplayable, Konami strikes again

I just played it for about 6 hours or so. I only had a few hiccups and other than that had a good time with a friend online with others.

Alright folks I tested both of my power banks and here are my findings. I've had zelda in and running while I've had it on the power bank. It charges very slowly with the game running but it is trending towards charging instead of loosing charge. At the very worst I see these being able to maintain your current battery life while playing while slightly charging them. Without them running any software they did charge much faster. I only tested the usb c ports on the power banks as those are the only ones that made sense. All in all I'd say it is worth it as it does allow you to continue to play for a much longer time.

Yeah, that was my thought, if you have other devices that work in that area, why does the NS not? But I guess as explained above, the strength of the antenna can come in to play, but I've just personally never had a device that did that. Or if it did, I never saw a performance issue from it. I hope something like that can be fixed with a patch, as I see that causing major issues with online play. But getting a booster or better router may help as well.

 

Thanks for the thoughts guys/gals, keep em coming.

There's a ton of variables that come into play in this situation. Do you have a router that also does AC? How many other devices are on at the same time? Signal strength? Battery charge on the device? Theres just alot of things that come in place instead of just blaming the device right out of the gate. I have a higher end expensive router and it made a world of difference going to that then the walmart BB low end router you can commonly pickup with all of the same devices. Signal penetration is also so much better with a higher end router. Before my signal strength upstairs was unusable. When I get my upgraded router it became usable in all parts of my house. Not sure yet either but if the switch will let you connect on different wireless bands you might find one of those to penetrate the walls a bit better for your connection purposes. Each wireless band is a bit different on the signal being dispersed and what it can penetrate.

I was able to replicate the desync issue resting a joycon on a raised leg from my couch. Otherwise fun. Plan on using handheld mode for the first hour. My joycons started throwing messages about needing to charge when I was prompted to remove them during initial setup.Yep it looks 

Yep it looks like the rumors of a patch were indeed false http://buff.ly/2mSylRE

My son and I are each getting one, so I will be able to check out game sharing (hopefully) tomorrow once I have them both.

 

My Best Buy console and Pro Controller for shipping are both still at preparing, while my Zelda SE and Bomberman are both ready for pickup (at midnight).

I'm pretty certain this is already confirmed to not be an option. Pretty sure Nintendo has already released statements on this not being allowed.

Official Nintendo Statement Regarding "Friend Codes"

 

Several methods can be used to add friends as quickly and easily as possible: · By linking Nintendo Switch to your Nintendo Account, your friends from Miitomo and Super Mario Run will appear as friend candidates so you can easily send them a friend request. Also, we are planning it so that friends from social networking services will be listed as candidates, too.
 
In the future, you will be able to send a friend request to friends associated with your NNID (Wii U/Miiverse) and Nintendo 3DS.
In some games you will be able to use an in-game interface to send friend requests.
You can send friend requests to those who have played with you recently.
You can establish a friend through local wireless communication.
You can also send a friend request by using a friend code.
 

 

Hi we don't know how to do online systems properly so we will just throw out all of these options to confuse people instead of having one simplified unified approach to make it easy.

Garbage friend codes are back: http://kotaku.com/th...dium=Socialflow

 

The more and more I keep hearing the more convinced I am that this won't be deemed a success in the end. Granted this isn't a overly huge thing rather than an annoyance it's yet another thing to add to the "What were they thinking" section again and that section has alot of things right now. Personally they should've kept that in the background or a database and just gave us a similar system to Microsoft or Sony for adding friends.

 

Edit: Also no day one path for the left joy con issue
