There is already an improved switch out there, so make sure you get that one if you buy the non-lite. The box is almost all red unlike the original which has a lot of white in it.
If you plan on playing local multiplayer at all, then It has to be hard to recommend the Lite. It likely feels much better to hold though.
Not sure what you mean about the drift, there has been stick drift in the past ( movement without touching the stick) but Nintendo have admitted it so you would always get a free repair for it.
Thanx for suggestions Drifting is what you said, movement without touching the stick. I am not well informed around it, just read it in a switch vs lite analysis. After that, i googled "switch drifting" and so many results, even recent ones appear. Also a lawsuit is in action about it. I ended up watching a video of a guy who teared apart a switch lite console to pieces. He talks about analog on 11:20.
All in all i am delighted from Nintendo in terms of quality, as i wasa ninntendo fan boy for years, although i thinksometimes they are overpricing things.
IE my N3DS console was good and durable as construction, i bought a console from the very early 3DS versions but for such an expensive console, the construction qualityand durability of the 3D amd sound volume physical switch/buttons was unacceptable. Ot is almost fake, i avoid to use them for real.
I mean that Nintendo although pays attention to quality, does some awkward goofs from time to time.

My wife finally got it for me as a surprise present...Did n't see it coming... It came with Mario Kart 8 deluxe, of course, couldn't be different!!! I unpacked and tired it last night...So many possibilities from now on... mario games, pokemon games (yes i do not like their stubbornness but i will buy one game for sure), Mario and Sonic Olympic games, ( got the demo and looks very decent family game) , Digimon, Yugioh, Zelda..

Only weird effect most games, are more expensive on Nintendo E-shop as digital, than the physical cartridge being sold in stores, which is really impressive, cause here in Greece, Nintendo cartridges are already more expensive, then West EU.

I am also on thoughts of buying FIFA 2020.. it seems it uses the engine of FIFA pre-2017 , aka FIFA 16 ps4 ...etc,etc.. Of course some peripheral hardware is needed for such games, i must buy the Switch special controller ( the XBOX-like one), does anybody from here got this? Any impressions, reviews?

Planning for some Xmas shopping. I want to get, a Switch Pro Controller, FIFA 2020, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and POKEMON SWORD*.

*Additionally to my standard criticism for pokemon outdated battle system, i do not like the new DYNAMAX/GIGANTAMAX??? mechanic. I liked mega evolution, i felt meh about Z-moves, but this gigantamax seems utter stupid.. Despite this i will buy cause i am a fan boy!! :(

Did some Xmas supershopping, in disguise from wife of course!!!!!! ;)
Bought Pokemon SW & SH, NBA 2k playgrounds 2, FIFA 20 and a SWITCH PRO controller. It was a big amount of money, hope wife will get much time to realise what happened!! :) ;)
Usually i am bashing NINTENDO for monetization, but this time on SWITCH i feel that every single € is worthing for the quality it gives you back. The SWITCH console has a solid construct, only the cartidge case seems to be very rashed and fragile, it also needs a fair big nail to open, which i have not! The PRO controller is well constructed and durable, with reliable sticks and very good ergonomics, hence the cost!!! Only minus the non-analog triggers.

On games:

POKEMON , it is what it is, if you like the PKMN world adventures and exploring, it will be 15~20 interesting hours, despite the major flaws, old and new, after that i cant see any longevity, just bought two versions, so i can have one for replays, if i need to.

NBA2kplaygrounds: is very good NBA JAM offspring, if you like this arcade NBA genre, but it just suffers from the 2K money hunger. If you can go past this, it is very good game, for me it is not gamebreaking at least, although they could make it more accesible. I will not spend in microtrasnactions either way. As long as i am san at least.

FIFA 20, is what every game of NINTENDO is always, when it has multi-platfrom versions. An inferior version than the PS4/XBOXone, but if you can live with this and you buy a controller, it is good, combined with the ability to play it in portable mode, it is OK. On TV it shows pixelated team badges, cause of bad port. Also it lacks the VOLTA mode and some settings/sliders that the main console versions have.

But for me it is the first time, after NINTENDO 64, that i feel that every single EURO i gave for the games/hardware worthed the money to the 100%. Ok it is known that NINTENDO products usually cost more than the other consoles, which is bad, bt at least i do not feel cheated. It is a very fine experience.
Also with the SPLIT ability of the JOYCONS plus the pro controller, i can now play with 2 other people loccaly, almost most titles, MARIO KART, FIFA, NBA, which is awesome. If the cost was more accesible, i think it would be the No#1 gaming option, very succesfull platform.

P.S.: Food for thought. Seeing what EA sports did for FIFA, i believe KONAMI could give the mobile version of PES for a SWITCH port. As i see on FIFA seems that the mobile gameplay fits good enough on SWITCH. Also NBA 2K plagrounds uses Unreal Engine 4, so they could go on a PES switch version with UE. Comparison between FIFA ps4/xboxONE and Switch, is too similar too PES pes4/xbox and PES mobile.

Ehi mate, not idea if there ever was a debate about this, but is Fifa 20 for Switch an improved version of Fifa 16, or is it the same identical game? I'd be curious to try it if they somehow evolved something on ignite.

I am not sure pal, cause i have not played any IGNITE FIFA, to know the difference. I have seen gameplay footage only.
But i had the same thinking as you, and that's why i bought it. Taking in mind FIFA 2015 for PSvita, which was a FIFA 11 with improved engine, i thought that EA would have the same strategy on handheld consoles. I can't say it is the same just by watching the videos. What everybody states on the net is that FIFA 20 = FIFA 19 = FIFA 18 (all for switch).

According to reading articles o the net, it uses a dedicated engine, maybe ignite dedicated for switch?

Also i want to mention, that either they have shipped very few copies, or this version sells very well, being a monopoly. I travelled 300 kms, 3 cities, and 5 different franchise malls, only to find the last one copy, to the last shop i visited. Even on greek e-shops. it is sold out and you can only place a special order, with waiting time at least 10 working days.

Sword/Shield is really more of an online game to be honest, story is sadly unfinished - but was the story ever good? The real fun lies in Wild Area and VGC. Exploiting the raid dens and then hosting some rare gmax or shiny pokemon is hell of a fun and I do it almost all the time while slowly getting into competitive play which is complex af.

The future is now, with internets!

I was meant to invest into proper laptop to play PS2 PES with mods this xmas but I just cannot be persuaded, I would rather play poke men all the time. So here - a positive opinion! :Wooloo:

Story was not the strongest part of Pokemon games. There are games with zero to weak story plots like R/B/Y or G/S/C and games with very heavy story plot like B/W/B2/W2. But even when the story/plot has not the most impresive or impact-full scenario, for me it counts more how the single campaing rolls. IE as i wrote on the Pokemon topic, the Gamaboy games, had a good map, good level scaling, hard and mazy caves and dungeons. I remember how a pain in the @$$ were the old Victory Roads, in order to get to Pokemon League.

Also as i said in the other topic, with the current battle mechanics system, i have no interest on going online. Maybe i will try 5~10 matches, if i take an online subscription, but for me as long as it stays a strict chess match, as it is the last 20 years, i am not attracted to spend time on online battling.

I know what features i want to be added to make the battle mechanics more refreshing, without violating the turned base system. But i also know that the majority of pokemon players, like the battle mechanics as they are now, so a change/improvement seems impossible.
