I think there's a switch friend code thread somewhere, stanshall linked to it. There it is - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=53
I do have a switch but I haven't turned it on for a long time. I play mostly on pc. I won't show all my working, but I'll just say that it's my preferred platform and I try to buy and play games on there as much as I can.
I've also got 6 arcade sticks now and I just don't think I could justify buying another one for the switch.
I know you only need one, but I had one for the 360 first, then I wanted to get one that had directinput too, I prefer to use that to xinput on pc (don't ask). Then I needed one for the ps4.
once I started to get competent at playing with a stick, I think I started to fetishise them, went through this phase of buying up old ones that were going cheap on ebay that I didn't need. I'd clean them up and make them look nice again and stick new parts in them.
Ridiculous behaviour, but it was fun.
Once you've shelled out like 150 quid for a new stick and you see one going for like 30 quid on ebay, even if you don't need it, your brain convinces itself that it's a smart investment
I love those big snooker ball things on the top of the sticks, if I was slightly more unhinged I'd probably let myself start collecting them and have like a special room with thousands in display cabinets
You can get all pretty colours and different styles, they're like big marbles. Aaaah, that'll be it, it'll be a nostalgia thing, reminding me of simpler times and sunnier days.
We were always playing with and hoarding marbles as kids, they were big at the time and every shop had little nets of them dangling enticingly from hooks in the aisles and we'd reach for them and whinny, yearning for more marbles.
We'd covet our friends nice new ones and keep them all in a big tupperware box and when we weren't playing with them, we'd be sat cross legged just holding them up to the light and gazing, memorised at the cats eye designs inside or the wonderful patterns or even just all the little chips and dents, war wounds from past games won.
I was like that with buttons as well, my mam had a big box full of them that'd been passed down through the generations of women for mending coats and shirts, all different kinds. I could sit there for hours just dipping in, pulling out a new one and examining it.
Bloody marbles and buttons now, we had Stanshall banging on about speakers the other day. We need someone with a cattle prod keeping us on topic.
