Word on the street is that GameCube controllers work with Mario Tennis Aces - and feel GOOD.

Sick.

I better dust off my Wii U adapter.

Now that's what I wanna hear! Long live the almighty Cube! :P

Mario Tennis Aces is sneakily shaping up to be one of my most anticipated Switch games.

I played the tennis demo this weekend and wasn’t super impressed. Very complex controls and a bit too much randomness for my taste.

As a committed Nintendo loon, I wasn't massively impressed, either, but it's had great feedback in most places, aside from a bit of lag. It'd be a good game to go in rotation but it's not a patch on ARMS or Splatoon and I'd sooner put more time into them than start afresh with another high skill ceiling game, which seems pretty fiddly.

I've not tried the demo as it goes, I've already pre-ordered the game though.

I'm in that group of people who are drawn to this by its story mode, the multiplayer does seem interesting but I won't be upset if that's the part of the package that lets this game down.

Got a free Luigi visor and everything (IRL).

Hollow Knight is out now on Switch e-shop! It's a surprisingly gorgeous game.

The Octoling expansion for Splatoon 2 that they’ve been saying for ages is out ‘in summer’ is in actual fact out today in the US (and tomorrow everywhere else).

That's cool, I enjoyed the Splatoon single player stuff.

Hopefully, this follows suit and does some interesting stuff.

Damn, what a shame but was somewhat predicable after its no show at E3 I suppose.

Yoshi has been delayed until 2019.

A delayed game is eventually good, a rushe............. yadda yadda...

Yep, I'd rather wait for an excellent new Yoshi game than have a merely decent one this year.

I can't recommend Hollow Knight more highly, its absolutely brilliant.

Our Josh has been raving about it too. It's been on my Steam wishlist for ages.

Yes, I'm going to be all over that.

I've been waiting for some time for that to land on Switch.

Just got a few little things to finish off first and that'll be one of my next games.

Worth noting if people missed it, or didn't know, that the new Octopath Traveler demo allows you to carry your save data over to the final game that comes out on the 11th July.

You get the first 3 hours in the new demo.

Fortnite runs great, having lots of fun with that.

Paladins is even more impressive. Bloody brilliant little game and the performance is rock solid 60fps. Honestly, superb.

Fortnite does run brilliantly, I had my first game and finished 5th. It is great being able to sit in the garden playing it :lol:

Also absolutely loving Paladins. It's £22 for the Founders' Pack on the Norwegian/South African eShop which unlocks all the characters and some other bunf but effectively, it's an early access fee because the F2P version doesn't launch til later this summer.

It's an Overwatch 'clone' (dev apparently started before OW, inspired by TF2 but who knows?) and it plays so damn smoothly on the Switch, it's pretty phenomenal. Loads of variety with the characters and a card based loadout perk system which means that two people could play the same character quite differently. It's a belter and even keeping me off Fortnite this evening.

Further notes it is hard to play in handheld mode but obviously amazing with the pro controller
