So, for once a pre order from Amazon has actually arrived before the release date. Mario & Rabbids has just turned up so will probably give it a go this evening :)
I order from Amazon a lot and that has never happened to me! Did they send it via Royal mail? If so I bet they sent it early because of the bank holiday, you will have to let me know what you think of it

Don't worry it's never happened to me before either! It was sent by Royal Mail as well, only reason I could think of for getting it was because of the bank holiday so I'm just going to go with that.

As for the game, I've played a couple of levels. Visually it's really nice, the music has been really good so far as well. Gameplay wise it seems good so far, as I said I've only played the first couple of levels which definitely seem like must win levels unless you actively try to get beaten. So far so good, hopefully it'll get better the further I get :)

Don't think he has online set up yet.
Or at least he isn't showing on Friend Suggestions, anyway.

L.A Noire has been announced for Switch. Looking forward to it, and it's good that Rockstar have faith in the console

Never played LA Noire before so I may be tempted, although if Skyrim launches in November (wish they'd say really) I may have to leave it till after Christmas as I'll have my gaming time full between replaying Zelda and playing the likes of Mario Odyssey, Skyrim, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Yooka Laylee and then Pokémon on my 3DS.

Makes no difference to me if the Switch gets an achievement system or not, never really gone hunting for them anyway and over the years I've still only got platinum on one game, Assassins Creed 2 which was actually really easy to get the platinum on.

I can see why people want it though, some feel it's a way to keep them playing the game so they have something to strive for, nowadays I normally find myself completing the story and then moving onto the next game I have unless it's really grabbed my attention.

I remember one of my really good friends from Primary and Secondary school really loved LA Noire; so despite the criticism I heard of it I might actually get it if the port doesn't absolutely blow.

How many folks here genuinely care about Netflix coming to Switch?

I just don't see the point, but I guess there are folks out there who might want their Switch to be the primary source of non-gaming stuff.

Netflix on Switch might finally convince me to get netflix myself rather than just using my housemate's on the living room TV. That's netflix from bed yo

So we've probably all heard of Golf being hidden inside Switch, the news of it broke a couple of days ago, but have you all heard of the current rumour as to why?

Apparently it's been hidden as it's an early game Satoru Iwata programmed pfor Nintendo and rumour has it, its been included as a omamori, a kind of a good luck charm that's placed at shrines and never opened.

Story here on Eurogamer

If this turns out to be true then its the single most awesome thing ever.

From what I've read, set the date to Iwata's death on your Switch and repeat his 'Directly' gesture with the Joy-Con, and you can play it.

But it only works with firmware 1.0.0 and that's the factory default. Once you update the Switch its unavailable to get to.

And that little tidbit of information is found here.

Considering the Switch got updated to 2.0 as soon as it launched, I can believe it as a luck charm.
Kind of nice thing to do, but if the game really does have updated Joy-Con controls, I still have to wonder whether Nintendo were planning to reveal the access in a Direct or something.

Man this hit me hard after leaning about it. Knowing every console has a piece of Iwata's hard work is pretty damn special.

I'm not sure that's true. From what I've read the reason connecting to the internet stops you from getting to it is because from that point on you can't manually set the date on the console as it's already been sync'd. So latest firmware should work, but you'll have to wait until the date next year to try it.

Well since I can't actually test it out I've only got their word to go by.
