@YummyHappyPills My plan is check the store in my lunch, if they have it in stock i will buy physical. If not I'll download that sucker. Sorry you got the long wait on the NHS. I've arthritis myself and they hook me up with some pretty exclusive meds. Took a decade to get there though. But they get it done in the end. I'd be in the gutter if I was in any other country.

Annyway...

I'm seeing one constant complaint that XC2 doesn't let you review tutorials, so use that screenshot button.

@YummyHappyPills Xenoblade 2 looks VERY anime (and not in the super stylized way of something like Persona 5) and is intimidatingly complex, so it's probably a testament to the quality of the game that it managed an 85 on Metacritic. That might look low compared to what recent Zelda and Mario games received, but those have a universal appeal in terms of their art design and gameplay.

Also, now that footage of handheld mode gameplay is emerging... it doesn't look too bad. Probably no worse than Mario + Rabbids, which I enjoyed immensely in handheld mode. I won't be able to judge it fairly until I get my own copy of the game, of course.

@kyleforrester87 I love the Pro controller. I think it's the best controller I've ever used. It doesn't hurt that the battery lasts for like 40 hours, lol.

It's a decent Xbox-style controller. I just don't see the use in it when I play undocked so frequently, and I actually really enjoy using the freeform joycons in a relaxed position when playing docked.

Working my through Resident Evil Revelations 1 (again, I think I've bought it on 5 different systems now) and I love the motion controls with this. Reminds me of the early days of the original Wii blasting through the definitive edition of RE 4. I've never been the biggest fan of motion control but when done right it's an extremely fun way to play.

@kyleforrester87 @KirbyTheVampire
Big fan of the Pro Controller as well. 'Best ever' might be a bit of a stretch but I would probably say it's the best Nintendo controller ever and I'm still a huge fan of the SNES control pad.

@Gamer83 It might not be the best ever made, but the controllers I've tried thus far are for the SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and PS4, and I prefer it over all of them.

So am I the only one that never bothered to hook up their Switch to the TV?

I'm loving Zelda, despite having the worst control scheme in the history of video games (in handheld mode anyways).
Zelda is to my Switch what Smash was to my Wii. I'll probably pick up XC2 over Xmas, but I'm not entirely sure if I want to jump into another open world RPG so soon after Zelda.

@Fight_Teza_Fight I'm the other way. I've literally tried handheld mode twice and immediately given up because the controls are absolutely awful. I'm sure they're fine when you're playing smaller indie games - or something like a JRPG - but trying to play Zelda or Mario simply wasn't worth the effort just so I could game while I was sat on the pot. I'll just flick through my phone or something and then get back to it when I'm back on the couch.

I play docked, then a bit of handheld in the kitchen, then some more docked, maybe handheld while misses watches TV then handheld in bed before sleep. Basically 70% docked, 30% handheld I think!

@johncalmc I was fine with Mario, but Zelda is a real struggle at times. I'm kinda used to it now, but I have probably 'died' way more than I would've with a pro controller.

@kyleforrester87 Maybe I'll hook it up one day, haven't felt the need to yet. I imagine I probably will once I get Mario Kart. Finding a suitable spot is the main issue for me.

@Fight_Teza_Fight The Pro Controller is probably my favourite controller Nintendo has ever made. Although, I don't think it's just the Joy-Cons that are the issue with handheld mode - the screen was too small for me too. It's the same problem I had with action games on Vita. Something like Persona 4 was great on it, but playing more complicated games always felt difficult to judge what was happening, and then use the tiny buttons and analogue sticks. Either way, I guess the option is good because some people seem to prefer handheld mode.

My partner has a Switch and we're currently playing Mario + Rabbids, having played the usual suspects (Zelda, Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey) together earlier in the year.

We both use Pro controllers and have never taken the console out of the TV dock, save once on the first day "just to see what it was like" before quickly putting it back. It's great that the option is there, and I understand that there'll be many who are the complete opposite to us, but given how comfortable the Pro controllers are to use (and the vibration is really, really good) and the fact that, most of the time, we're two people playing single-player games together, docked works great.

Despite being a die-hard Sony fanboy, I have to say that I've been really impressed with the Switch. The games... er, less so, but the Switch itself is a really fine piece of hardware.
