    HUKD Nintendo Switch owners thread

    For all Nintendo Switch owners on HUKD to connect with each other.

    For general Nintendo chatter, there's the Great Big HUKD Nintendo thread (Formerly known as the HUKD Wii U owners thread) hotukdeals.com/mis…216

    I don't know how the accounts and friends system would work on the Switch but I do know you can claim your Switch User ID already - accounts.nintendo.com/log…%2F

    I am just back from the Smyths midnight launch in Inverness. It was closed! oO Have I got the date correct?! Travelled all that way and it is freezing up here. Felt like an idiot standing outside the store with all the lights off and shutters down!

    Zelda has always been average and its just fanboys making a bigger deal … Zelda has always been average and its just fanboys making a bigger deal than it actually is. Also new system hype is clouding people's judgement. This is why I'm not buying this system because I know it will end up just being a console with indies and creepy jrpgs like the Vita was with the occasional exclusive. I'm fine with my PS4 until PS5 releases espesially as I barely have enough time playing games as it is.




    So stop playing games and whining about systems you will never own on threads you don't have time to read.

    Got to play it this time and I'm not really impressed with it. Felt quite … Got to play it this time and I'm not really impressed with it. Felt quite bored 15 minutes into it and played for 50 minutes. Don't think it's for me. Will play the beta again tomorrow and the next couple times it's on to see if anything changes. One of the flaws that I dislike about it is when I moved both joycons to the side, instead of moving to the side the fighter threw a punch instead. Hate it when that happens. Does the same thing when I try to block too. Not too sure how I feel about the 3 fighter mode and the 2 vs 2 cos those get very messy I'm always getting hit without being able to block any off. I did enjoy the volleyball however. Wanted more of that!


    Try it without motion controls I've played it for 2 hours without. Enjoyed my preview with motion controls though.

    I've been having a reasonably successful time with ARMS. Here are some tips:

    Volleyball
    - Precision is key here (the whole object of the mini game is to teach you to aim)
    - Remember you can hit the ball as soon as it's in play. I've won many points just by timing the punch correctly.
    - Don't forget to 'set' the ball before spiking it. It's harder to defend.

    1 v 1
    - Don't rush!
    - Don't rush!
    - Don't rush!
    - Consider tactical uses of arms. I use Master Mummy as my main - and I never use two heavy arms at once. One's always my quick fire one to sneak in hits and the other is to block other punches because I'm bigger.
    - Dash and dodge regularly
    - When someone tries a throw and you've dodged it, use the time to sneak a few punches in or a throw yourself
    - Keep your super in reserve until you need it or when they're low on health. Only use it when they've already committed to a punch or a throw.
    - Be very careful about using throws - they're powerful but if you miss, you're wide open.
    - Some characters act almost as counters to others. Master Mummy struggles against Ninjara's speed (though if they hit they suffer badly). As far as I can tell, Ninjara is perfectly built for hit and run. And Helix is all about evasion. Master Mummy is your classic tank, like Zangief (though unlike SF, Master Mummy is more viable)
    - Like boxing, you'd also benefit from varying your strikes. Keep your opponent guessing about your next play - don't get into a routine.

    1 v 1 v 1
    - Try not to make yourself a target. At all costs, avoid being in between two others.
    - Imagine a triangle - make yourself the longest point and snipe others. You may have a different style but this seemed to work for me unless I got double teamed.
    - Remember to constantly change targets. Get a few hits in, change targets and react.

    1 v 1 v 1 v 1
    - It's utter chaos. Just try to survive. And make yourself as inconspicuous as possible for a short while. Let others duke it out first.

    2 v 2
    - Change targets often. It's quite chaotic so avoid throws - they tend to get blocked by punches.
    - Be more precise - people often just flail about mindlessly in this mode. Target your punches well. Dashing is even more important to avoid getting thrown since both of you go down.
    - Save your super until they've committed to an action

    Today is my birthday and Nintendo's given me a nice though not spectacular pressie of 300 platinum points. Would've been better if they were gold coins...

    Tricks and workarounds:
    Thanks Marcoos - http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/hukd-nintendo-switch-owners-thread-2621430?p=30351780
    To transfer a digital game from internal memory to an SD card:
    1. Go to the options for the game on the Switch home screen and select data management
    2. Archive the game, your save data will not be deleted
    3. Power off the Switch and insert the SD card.
    4. Power up Switch and if prompted to run the update, first time use of an SD card.
    5. Click on the game icon and download. The game will be now downloaded to the SD card instead of internal memory.
    6. Enjoy!

    Thanks to thedarkjedi - hotukdeals.com/mis…768
    I created a dashboard and web browser for the Switch when using the Facebook user account link trick. Go to facebook.com/Swi…ash for details on the trick and to access SwitchBoard.

    How to set up an account to access another country's store: - Thanks Marcoos
    1. Go to accounts.nintendo.com/ and create a new account
    2. Select the country and time zone of the store you wish to access
    3. On your switch console, create a new account and link your newly created Nintendo account to it.
    4. Access the eShop, you will be prompted to select which account to use for that session. Just pick which store you want to access

    Here's a link to all the games on the US eShop. Japanese store might be fun to try and find a link for..

    In the same boat. I've got Zelda preordered on the WiiU might just leave it at that.

    My ID username thing is evamoree, I set it today planning on getting splatoons 2, zelda, Mario kart, maybe 'I am setsuna' and 1-2-Switch. Super excited

    Got dysonism as my ID Looking forward to launch day with Zelda and 1 2 Switch after playing the launch lineup at the London reveal event in January! The hardware is gorgeous and seamless from my short time with it, even if the games lineup is lacking somewhat..

    Zelda was amazing, played 20 minutes of it and was dying to jump back in for more. 1 2 Switch will be a fantastic game to show to other people, it truly is the Wii Sports of the Switch although maybe with less replayability (and I reckon absolutely should have been a pack in - total missed opportunity Nintendo). MK8 is already a fantastic game and recommended if you don't have it on the Wii Ubut really adds very little other to incentivize me back, Splatoon 2 unfortunately seems very very similar to the first (though Splatoon 1 was a fantastic game, I'd have liked to see more in the way of new ideas for 2).

    Arms was surprisingly really fun and I'm definitely gonna pick that up when it comes out!

    Has anyone had a chance to try out Bomberman? Sorely tempted but not sure I can justify £40 on a Bomberman game

    I may have bumped into you there then if yours was the morning session. Quite literally I think coz I was the only one with a toddler in a buggy.... The Nintendo staff were incredibly helpful in the times when I needed a path cleared.

    Yes, ARMS is one of those games which look simple, perhaps overly so, on the surface, but once you play it you discover that the game has loads of hidden depth. I had a really good match against a Nintendo rep at a booth. The controls were really intuitive, even for more advanced moves and combos as I was dodging and timing my punches quite easily. I pummeled him in the first round but he came back strongly and then took the final round with a last gasp punch.

    I tried Bomberman out there too but agree on the price feeling a bit high unless more modes and extras are announced/revealed. Would be fantastic for local multiplayer though!
