Ghost busters, I like the whole mechanic for capturing ghosts but it's such a convoluted process. Having to repeat it with endless ghosts just becomes annoying and boring. It feels much better when you can just shoot like a fps.

Does anyone here have a Switch lite?  One way or another I am treating myself to a new game system by Black Friday. Might be a Switch, might be a new PC, might be just a PSVR setup.

The thing that's holding me back with the switch is the Joycons. I hate them. And knowing how many of you have had to get them replaced makes me even less interested. I know I can get a pro controller, but then that starts to put the system into a price range where it's only slightly less expensive than a next-gen system.

So I'm thinking the Lite would be a good compromise. I certainly have no qualms with handheld gaming. All the same, I wanted to know if anyone has direct experience with one and if there are any red flags with the system that I might be unaware of.

I have one and am pretty happy with it.  It makes the Switch look like an oversized, outdated piece of tech.  Some games can't be played in handheld mode however, although they're a small minority.  Mario Party for example demands you hold one joycon, which obviously isn't possible with the Lite, unless you by a seperate one.

On the other hand: the sticks are the same ones as found in the joycon, so they're just as prone to drifting.  My Swith Lite is still ok, but it's only about half a year old.

Oh man really? I heard the sticks on the Lite weren't susceptible to drift. Well crud...

They're still in perfect working condition, but I believe they're the exact same sticks as used in the Joycon.

Nintendo is quietly offering repairs for joycon drift worldwide, but I've yet to take them up on that.

yeah on the joycons my new pair started crapping out in Splatoon and I realised its not the joycon. For some reason it only happens here downstairs in a very specific room. I think the TV stand frame messes with the signal. I thought my old pair was faulty (the drift was) but the disconnecting and gyro drift is there with the new pair and strangely mostly on Splatoon and nothing else.

Nintendo has been having a sale on Joycons in Japan. I’m hoping that this is a sign that they are getting rid of old stock to replace them with improved Joycons.

Re5 final boss fight is a touch... Ugh. First you pick up an unloaded rocket launcher and have to keep putting it back down to switch weapons. So you can't break the crates to get rockets. Or you give Sheva the launcher and she disappears and fires at random times so you don't have enough time to run up to wesker to inject him. Then there's qte wii like crud on the plane.

Now I have to run around a volcano hard tapping buttons in furious qtes to... Punch, kick and push... a boulder into a volcano. You can see this shit seeping into re5 which eventually led to the car crash that is re6.

When he says stuff like that, I sort of understand why we haven't heard from him. There's a reason the standard Switch routinely sells out faster than the Lites.

Microsoft actually made an Xbox Series X fridge, well three of them. Snoop Dogg got one as well as iJustine. The third one can be won on Twitter. It’s a damn nice looking fridge as well. The Xbox symbol in the top corner lights up, green tinted interior lights, and it even plays the system startup sound when you open it up. I would love to have one of those.

Played Monster Hunter World: Iceborne this weekend. Took down AT Velkana, quite the intense fight. Need to take him down a few more times to get the mats for the armour and layered amour though. Still trying to take down Fatalis though. Also played some Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

We'll be heading back to MH next friday. After a much needed time out we're ready to head into the ice themed expansion.

I finished Whispers of a Machine and started The Red String Club.

I've also been playing the stealth game Dirt Rally, in which you have to hide from the Lancia Stratos as it stalks you, wielding the terrifying weapon: snap oversteer. To complement it, I've also been playing the fashion simulator NFS: Heat, in which I'm looking fabulous:

I played through Gorogoa (meh), renewed my subscription to PlayStation Now so I could check out Days Gone, but ended up playing Golden Axe. Mainly I just watched the new season of Unsolved Mysteries.
