Nintendo Switch


HUGE Mario Tennis patch today.

Gonna go at it again.




Yay! maybe they will stop playing that instead of Magical Drop on the neo Geo arcade machines at MAGFEST :-p


You know Magical Drop is on the switch, too, right?


Of course. I got it the day it became available.


I bought Magical Drop 3 and Money Puzzle Exchanger, and I think I like MPE better. New Picross also :ok_hand:. More of the same but still good. The puzzle piece feature they added is kinda neat.


I got a switch today. Couple of things

  1. The hacking scene for this thing is amazing. It can boot linux reasonably well.
  2. Holy crap Mario Odyssey is really good.
  3. Why did Nintendo ruin the d-pad? (I know why, the d-pad needed to be buttons for horizontal use, still sad though)
  4. My friend code is SW-7196-5312-0527


Is it possible to run Android on the Switch?


I haven’t tried, nor do I think anyone else has, but it’s basically the same chip as the Shield TV so probably although I imagine getting the joycons to work would be a nightmare.


Can’t imagine it would be too much of a nightmare - after all, people got Joycons working as a combined controller with PC pretty much immediately.


True, the bluetooth support on linux for the switch is a little buggy right now though. Currently the joycons only work wired (connected to the console).
