    Drift can reach a point where a game is outright unplayable. On top of that to repair it on the Lite, You have to send the whole system out. Also as more reports come out about Joy-Con issues all around the defect rate of the Lite goes up.

    The First 2-3 versions of the XB360 had a 60% fail rate. if every single Lite has the exact same hardware setup, The fail rate of it is going to be high (until Model 2 comes out). It may not cost Nintendo a billion dollars like RROD did for the 360, But the compression is spot on.
    I'd agree too with the severity comparison as well, but there is one bug difference (but it stinks). You could still pair joycons with the lite and keep playing which you couldn't with the xbox, though doing so kind of defeats the main purpose of having the lite over the regular version.

    Finally got around to finishing Link's Awakening, Solid 9/10 for me.

    My biggest complaint's is the weird FPS drops when you go from area to area and a lot of the time it wasn't clear what you needed to do.

    But overall loved it and well worth the $60 I paid, Also I played it on Hero Mode.

    I'm actually about to give Breath of The Wild a full play though as well.

It’s more likely a fault in the manufacturing process for the lite specifically that’s causing the issue, not the part itself.
    Oh god. It is drift, whether it is caused by wear and tear or immediately defective units. Drift is the action, not the causality. No need to nitpick over semantics that aren't even real.

    Then why are you posting this? The point is that the joysticks aren’t the same as V1 and claiming Nintendo was “too cheap” to address the drift issues is fallacious. We have no indication that these issues are related to the redesigned joysticks as the issues are only happening on the lite. The v2 uses the exact same part and we’re not seeing similar reports related to them.

    None of what you said suggests it isn't drift. Drift is drift is drift. It is the joysticks drifting away from their stationary point. Or however you would prefer to phrase it. Whether that drift is caused by wear and tear or manufacturing default is irrelevant to my post. You went on and on and on needling someone over not calling drift what it is because of how the drift began.

    Eggs bought from the store or eggs bought from the farm? Still eggs.

    Again, the drift problem, in the context of the nintendo joysticks, is an issue where the carbon causes drift issues. That’s something that happens from poor design and wear and tear. The fact that these sticks have no wear and tear, just like my v2 sticks that are the exact same model, but are experiencing calibration issues points to an issue in the lite’s manufacturing process/design. Not a defect in the joysticks themselves. Those are the same parts that have been put into the revised joycons for a while with no immediate issues... unless it was a defective unit. Defects tend to be front loaded for a new model. Hence the current issues.

    They’ll figure out which line is causing problems and address it. Just like they did when they made modifications to the joystick design. It likely won’t solve drift permanently, but the changes should help hold it off for longer.

    They can't be too cheap to address it since they are giving free repairs for it.

    They are giving those free repairs in NA only because they're facing a US class action lawsuit over it there.

    They did not extend that policy to other regions with joycon repairs, such as countries handled by NoE.

    NoA started covering the free repairs before the lawsuit existed, so I feel like this is more on NoE just being shit not NoA being forced into doing it. Let's be honest with how class action suits work in the US Nintendo could hold the case up for years in court and then settle and after the lawyers get their cuts consumers will be looking at a $5 check in the mail in a decade. They don't have to fix them for free, but they are.

    They are supposed to be giving those repairs out for free everywhere. Some other country's Nintendo places are ignoring the request by Nintendo to do it for free.

    I thought the rails felt tighter, but at first I just thought was because it was new and my old Switch which I gave to a friend (I had been waffling on upgrading just for battery life alone, but I had a friend that wanted a Switch and had no way to get one so used that as an excuse to upgrade), was 2 years old so they weren't as tight anymore. The extra battery life is amazing compared to the old one though. Me and my roommate were playing Mario Kart in the BMV for about an hour a couple weeks ago...mine was still at 95% after that hour while my roommate's was down to like 82 in the same time (both started at 100%). Also, people think the screen is "more red"...but it's actually not. It's brighter, but it has a more accurate color temperature. It's more accurate to say the original Switch's display was shifted too much toward the blue. I've seen color temperature measurements and the screen on the new one is actually what it's supposed to be.

    But ugh, this Spyro game. I've given up on Spyro 2 at 11%. I can't complete the first speedway. I got the gems and the orb, but for the last part you have to complete it in under 1:10 and I have not been able to do it in many hundreds of attempts and in excess of 8 hours. I guess the game ends here. It would be one thing if it were an optional challenge, but it's not, it's required for completion.

    It is optional tho', you can finish the game without doing it. It's not a 100% finish but you'll conclude the entirety of game and will not miss out on anything.

    I finally did it after 500 ish attempts. I've heard the rest of the speedways are easier. We'll see.

    That moment when you get a surprise Amazon shipping notice and you forgot you ordered Gun Gun Pixies and should have cancelled it.

    Gonna send it back and wait for a Steam sale later instead.

    Also got my physical copy of Freedom Planet and will be giving that a play through again on classic mode while at work later.

    Just hopped on to say that DQXI: S on Switch is crazy good, and imo, a must play jrpg if you haven't already played it.

    I'm still salty that the music from the Definitive Edition hasn't been released for the PC version, since that's the one I have. Definitely one of the best JRPG's in a while though.

    It likely won't ever be because the composer is a dick. He's not even that good though and the soundtrack is still meh even when it's orchestrated. They likely licensed the music for the Switch version only as a bonus to try and get double dippers, and they probably paid him an ass load of money for it to the point where it's not realistic to patch into the PS4/PC versions for his asking price.

    Didn't the dude literally send ISP notices to people torrenting the orchestrated music mod? This dude is legit insane and you will never see it officially on PC.

    Overall though DQXI is a great game in spite of it's soundtrack not so much because of it so w/e. Compared to most games coming out of Japan it's soundtrack is pretty weak and dated.
