What? You mean you used the browser on the switch?
I was talking about the Nintendo store in NYC. But what Legend said, yes. It was hard to grasp as a demo station at least. I saw more people having similar problems. Also they said press L+R, which I did and nothing happened. It was only when I figured out there were small buttons on top of each half a controller by myself that I could start Mario for example

Right of you've only got a single joycon then the controls are rotated as you hold it sideways. You press L and R at the same time to let the system know what you're using as a controller.

I'm surprised they'd have a demo set up with only one joycon though.

It was confusing because they had 4, two of which were connected resembling a normal controller and the other 2 were split apart. Then one of the split apart ones were supposed to be used.


Anyway, wasn't able to try it out enough because of this. Played a bit of Smash in the Nintendo store tho with my gf until she gave up

I'm hoping I can get a switch this year, or next.

You weren't able to try it out? Surely you could work  out what was going on?

Eventually, but I didn't have enough time because of that

More proof showing why crossplay is inherently a great thing and why Sony still suck for not supporting it well enough.

Apex legends is still doing crazy well on twitch. Consistently more than double fortnite's viewer count. Seems like people prefer watching Apex, and maybe it'll stay that way.

Game must be making shroud very rich too, he's by far the most viewed streamer and was getting about double the viewers of ninja when they were streaming at the same time. He currently has 101k viewers, which is absolutely mental. 100k+ is usually only for big events, one-off streams and tournaments in CS:GO, league, dota.

Played a few games of Apex with a friend and we won a game! Was awesome. The final stages are so much more tactical and so much more fun than other BRs. Respawn really nailed this.

i hope sega will remake this game someday

God of War dominated the DICE awards.

Astro Bot was robbed. DICE has no credibility.

(I haven't even played the game but it confusing that DICE disagreed with so many other people)

Yeah I really would have expected DICE to pick Astro Bot in the immersive reality category. Only other thing I find shocking here is the lack of RDR2 even nominated for Story. RDR2 has an amazing story, even better than GOW.

Also Mario Tennis Aces should not be touching any awards, lmao. Even fifa deserves the sports award more than that game, which is barely even a sports game.

What is a tonandi?  

And how did it win?
