I wrote this last year about the complexity of getting 5.1 sound from a #NintendoSwitch and was reminded of it again today when the sound test wasn’t working properly because…my soundbar wasn’t in “direct” mode (any extra processing will screw up the signal) 🤦 #nintendo https://toosolid.substack.com/p/does-the-nintendo-switch-work-with
So far, mine is Kabuki. Cool aesthetics, personality like a little old man. He's relatable...for some reason.
That said, aesthetically, Ankha is a close second.
What about you?
While researching for this episode of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, I found out that 'pickax' is apparently the spelling in the US, and 'pickaxe' is from the UK. I've never seen anyone spell it pickax in my life. Is this a regional US thing? #NintendoSwitch #Nintendo #Mario #CaptainToad #キノピオ隊長 #toad #gaming #SaturdayGaming #TBGN
I have to be honest, I expected a port, remaster or a remake of F-Zero GX for nintendo switch, however everyone knows nintendo is not going to invest in a new game if they are not sure that the people is going to buy it. F-Zero 99 is not what we wanted, but it's a very good test to see if people is still interested in that IP.
Anyways, the games is pretty fun!
Finished #MarioRabbidsSparksOfHope. On Hard. Without ever using consumables (accidentally challenged myself).
Lovely game. No better and no worse than Kingdom Battle, just different. Although a bit long to my taste, but, come on, I 100%-ed it!
And there are still 3 DLCs remaining. Looking forward to trying them out. The Donkey Kong DLC in the first game was better than the main campaign, to my taste.
I bought “Islanders” on switch for £2.50 or something ridiculous and it’s really fun. It’s like a mini sim game with a built in puzzle element.
It’s quite easy so far and low stakes, so it’s great just to spend some downtime playing it.
Controls are a bit frustrating, but as it’s a PC port I can’t complain too much.
Not super cheap, but the cheapest I've seen it anywhere so far:
Spooky Spirit Shooting Gallery on Nintendo Switch for €36 at Amazon Holland
I couldn't resist this one:
Just €20 at Amazon Holland
been playing my #NintendoSwitch quite a bit more. i think the "ending" lineup looking as strong as it does has me feeling that nintendo hype, haha.
wanna explore some titles i've missed out on over time. gotta get through the newest #Pokemon titles, as well as learn them new #MarioKart 8 Deluxe DLC tracks!
Ankha's second day on Moduland was her birthday! Such a queen moving the week of her birthday.
When I got there, I found another fav, Muffy, who was just so hyped to celebrate with her new friend.
Knowing we have a queen on our hands, I gifted Ankha a prom crown. I can not wait to see if she wears it!
Happy Birthday Ankha!

#EdgeMagazine likes to keep their 10/10s well hidden in their pockets. They don't deliver those easily. A reviewer needs to wake up in the right mood, and a game needs to be incredibly outstanding. Or both. I'm looking forward to reading their #bg3 review. It also features a funny article about #PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor and how unlikely we'll see a Switch re-release any time soon. #NintendoSwitch - Hold my beer.
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror chega ao Nintendo Switch Online na próxima semana
Super Mario Bros. Wonder ganha novo trailer mostrando uma “visão geral” sobre o jogo
Im Oktober erscheint Super Mario Bros. Wonder für die #NintendoSwitch. Ein neuer Übersichtstrailer fasst jetzt alles Wichtige zusammen, was wir über das Spiel wissen müssen. #SuperMarioBrosWonder #SuperMario https://winfuture.de/videos/Spiele/Super-Mario-Bros.-Wonder-Nintendo-stellt-das-Spiel-ausfuehrlich-vor-25608.html?utm_source=Mastodon&utm_medium=ManualStatus&utm_campaign=SocialMedia
So, Ankha officially joined our little island yesterday. She was VERY motivated to finish unpacking.
Why? Apparently it's her birthday today.
Of course this queen would show up on my island and immediately throw a party.
Rock on, Ankha. I'll have to check her party later.
Please spread the word!
Puzzle Adventure game 'Rainbow High: Runway Rush' launches today for the Nintendo Switch:

I was absolutely sure, the #SteamDeck was just a more powerful and less ergonomic approach to the #nintendoswitch. And it is, of course, way more powerful. But boy was I wrong about the ergonomics! It’s actually comfortable even over longer periods. Battery also does a decent job. #chefskiss #gaming #portablegaming
My #NintendoSwitch Pro Controller had an issue with the left joystick where it would treat holding it in specific directs as a slight tilt instead of a full tilt. So, a walk instead of a run.
Well I had some time today and disassembled it, sprayed it with compressed air, and now I’m playing #CyberPunk with it on #LinuxMint
#linux #linuxgaming #nintendo
My brothers and I are such different #gamers lol. All of us grew up gaming on #PlayStation while also dabbling in #PC #gaming, only difference being when #PUBG came out and became incredibly popular, I built my first PC and played with my brothers and while they still continue to primarily/exclusively game on their PS of the day, now #PS5, I never want back to #consoles except the incredibly occasional #NintendoSwitch gaming once every 2 years or so lol.
Whenever they complain or boast about how cheap or expensive some games are on the PS Store, I get to be annoying and boast about how that RM100 game is just RM17 on #Steam. When they complain about how #PSN (online subscription) has increased in price, I can be really annoying and remind them about how playing online on PC is free 🤠
Wer also nochmal vollkommen unbefangen in die Tage von Pokemon Rot/Blau zurückversetzt werden will, ist hier goldrichtig. Der #Pixel Look ist sehr gelungen, wer mehr sehen will kann gerne auf meinem #Twitch vorbeischauen
So I'm curious:
People with a Nintendo Switch, what's your preference for docked vs handheld? Do you almost always do one or the other, does it depend on the game, does it depend on what you're doing while gaming? And if you also have a PS5 or Xbox X|S, what's your preference for games that are available on both that and the Switch?
Blown away by how many books there are about #VideoGame LAW! Another one was just catalogued.
#GameInfekt - Uff, wie viel gibt es in #FaeFarm bitte zu tuen? Habe bereits etwas über 25 Stunden gezockt und bin gerade mal in Kapitel 4 (also, keine Ahnung wie viel Kapitel das Spiel insgesamt hat).
Aber allein was einem mit Kapitel 4 an neue Sachen zugänglich gemacht wird, uff ... Schon sehr geil. :D
:pika: Nintendo NX: The Most Pointless Internet Argument
Been wanting to pick up the #BatenKaitos remaster on Switch really bad, but I've been busy the past few days. Its one of those #GameCube games I've never played, but have considered buying a GameCube for in the present.
Thing is it was digital only in America, no digital preorders allowed either. Had a busy few days since it launched, and im buying it to play this morning. Before I did I said to myself "Better dial up a review, and make sure it's not a broken port or something."
Played a little #HatsuneMikuProjectDiva on the big screen while we had the #NintendoSwitch in the other room tonight. One of the cool things about Miku is that the fans create and popularize songs with topics and themes that no corporation in its right mind would EVER create or release themselves. But once it’s a hit, SEGA is justified putting it in the game. Case in point: the sinister conformity march of “This Is the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee”.
Switching from Pro controller to the SNES controller in #FZero99 has improved my game massively, it just feels so right! :pika_shocked: I'm still not brilliant, but I'm getting close to the top 10 now.
Also, adjust the controls BEFORE you join a race! ZL+ZR on the Pro are for spinning, on the SNES controller they will take a screenshot and boot you back to the homescreen! I'm glad spinning is L+R, it would've been awkward otherwise (tiny buttons!) 😂
#FZero99 is without a doubt one of the most chaotic games I have ever played and I love it!
I haven't won any races yet, so far my highest result has been 24th since I turn into a damage magnet if I boost too much!
For now, I like to keep my nose clean. It means I see the end of more races that way! 😀
I'm glad to see Nintendo bring this franchise back after so long, I hope it leads to more games in the future, even if it's just a GX remake!
Classic Nintendo Racer F-Zero Returns As A...Battle Royale
Like Pac-Man 99 and Tetris 99 before it, F-Zero 99 will be available through the Nintendo Switch Online service
While I love the idea of F-Zero 99, it already feels like there's a clock on how long it will stay online before it disappears again forever. And I really don't want to get excited for something that's just no longer going to exist a year or two from now.
I had been planning to use my second Nintendo Game Voucher on Octopath II, but it wasn't eligible. However, Mario Wonder was -- so I used it to preorder that. Octopath II happens to be on sale right now so I went ahead and picked that up. Between 100%'ing Tears of the Kingdom and these two games, I should be pretty set for a while.
None of the 3 big Platform holders are obligated to support #W4Games.
According to the controller patent, which was first filed on May 11, it proposes "a resistance section using a magnetorheological fluid whose viscosity changes with a magnetic-field intensity and which becomes resistance when the operation element is displaced."
It took me many months but I finally managed to complete Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, reaching 100% wasn't easy but it was so worth it!
My favorite Zelda game, it's just crazy that a game of this scale and ambition can even run on Switch, it looks so good too! I'm so satisfied with it on every level!
Waiting several years before we get a whole new 3D Zelda will be hard but I'm excited to see what they'll do with a much more powerful hardware!

5$ Bluetooth Dolar Tree speaker review
In this post im gonna be talking about a $5 #bluetooth shower speaker I had for about a month now purchased from #DolarTree .
Despite the name you dont have to use it while in the shower. But that's it's intended use. It is also water resistant.
Being bluetooth, it enables you to use on any bluetooth capable devices ranging from modern pcs, #laptops, #smartphones, #switch #nintendoswitch, *some* #smarttvs, and #Playstation Portal*not* ,sony is a money hog these days, they dont support bluetooth on the #playstationportal .
How exactly does it sound, imagine how old #crt #tvs use to sound like but with a single portable speaker, with just enough #bass to #sound good but not enough physical speaker space to be perfect. The quality of the music/sound is good but not outstanding.
For $5 this is probally the best bluetooth speaker you can buy at full price that cheap. Plus it is water resistant.
it'l meet you half way. Giving you half the sound quality, and a somewhat cheat price. I say somewhat cheap because other items at dolar tree usually go for a dolar. $1.25 such as #headphones, #earbuds but those arent as good.
HEY #RPG fans, thinking of playing as my very first D&D video game Baldur's Gate 1 or 2 on iPad.
I only have iPhone, iPad, and Switch as my devices to play games.
Is this a good starting point? Should I start with 1 and not 2? or 2 first is okay???
GuliKit made a dock that's divine
For the Steam Deck and Switch it will shine
It looks like a SNES
Made with nostalgia drenched
For those who love retro gaming design
I love the Sim City games (ever since I played the original in school in the early 90s!) I recently grabbed Cities: Skylines on Switch when it was on sale for less than $10 and I haven't dived in yet, but I'm psyched to eventually.
But this time, instead of just jumping in and building whatever (as I often do, recently with both the Sim City mobile game and the Sim City on DS), I'm doing some research on city design, to try and build something in a meaningful way. I want to see what designs I really like most, etc. From what I hear about Skylines, it's super realistic, and I should be able to build a cool, futuristic city that's fully green, sustainable, etc.
Anybody else played Skylines or is a big fan of any of the other Sim City games?
:steam: I prefer my printed at home :steamdeck_dark: holders with a seperate mega hub, but this faux #Nintendo #SNES dock for #SteamDeck / #Switch is pretty sweet looking for #RetroGaming with your #NintendoSwitch
I bought #NintendoSwitch as a birthday gift in 2019 and it's been a great machine. But there were so many things I wished it could do.
And then came #SteamDeck and did all those things and I'm so happy with it.
I finally wrote down my thoughts on the device and why I love it so much.
(I still love my Switch too for the 1st party Nintendo exclusives!)
