Started playing Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling this weekend. It's basically a Paper Mario clone, but like a clone of Paper Mario when the games were really good. I'm really enjoying it.

I finally installed Animal Crossing New Horizon yesterday evening. Checked it out before bed and a few hours later I had to force myself to log out and go to sleep lol. Fun, addicting little game.

Also installed Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, my family had been eyeing it for awhile. I haven’t played a Smash game since GameCube. I remember it being fun with 4 people.

It's still very fun, online works really well but creating a lobby for your bros is a pain in the ass

Installed Minecraft for my sons. It’s nice in handheld mode. I forgot how much fun the game is I haven’t played it much in years. I believe it’s cross play so I can play with them through my XB.

I kind of dig Nintendo's recording abilites, although where I can download them to straight from the switch leaves plenty to be desired. Wish I could just upload to my youtube or something. At least you can store it on the sdcards though.

Started playing River City Girls earlier this week and beat it today. Not a typical game I play; it's actually the only old school style beat em up that I've really played. But wanted to try something new and got it on sale a little while back.

I thought it was really fun. Way harder than I thought it would be, even playing on normal, but I had a good time. I'd definitely try other games like this.

Streets of rage 4 is a masterpiece imo, better than the earlier games (and I've sunk dozen and dozens of hours into them).
Learn how the game flows (specials against non blockables etc) and it gets very deep.

Perhaps someone can help me, I was hoping to download Apex Legends on my microsd, but it keeps giving me issues. Everytime it gets to 99% download rate, the game data somehow gets corrupted. It's been happening for most games I've been downloading, but after formatting, everything I really wanted was downloaded successfully except for Apex Legends.

Apparently Haiwei TB sd cards just have issues running on the switch. Thankfully I got it for a decent price off ebay, so it acts as a convenient place for storage when backing stuff up which I've been meaning to do. Ending up buying a 128 GB nintendo branded switch sdcard and it works like a charm. Got it on sale too.

Those cheap SD cards work fine it doesn’t have to be the Nintendo ones.

I've bought two (no, I never learn) super cheap SD cards from Ali express and both of them stop working when they get over 20% full on my switch... Works fine on my phone though.

I'm unlocking characters again in smash bros, I lost everyone when my switch got... switched.
Anyway, what's up with these japoonese anime half male characters with swords? f*** me, they take up way too much of the roster;
Corrin, Robin, Ike, Marth, Cloud (I love you though), Shulk, Roy, Pit, Dark Pit and I'm confident there's more coming.

Anyone here ever play Flipping Death? Pretty sure it's on other consoles too, but I got it a long time ago during a eshop sale and just played it this weekend. Only like 5-7 hours to beat but it's a pretty fun game that involves jumping between living and death and controlling people to solve puzzles. Plus, I thought the humor was pretty funny. Definitely recommend.
