Hey switch owners! Have anyone tried using VPN on their switches for LAN play with friends? As in everyone just connect to the same VPN from different location. Wonder if it will work?  hmm.gif

Wow this is the first I have heard of this idea, would be a little interesting to try and implement this to see if it works.

Not too sure if the Switch uses bluetooth for local multiplayer or just WiFi.

I'll probably be buying mostly digital games. Heard from my friend buying from eshop is usually cheaper and got discount/promo hehe.

Ah, ok I'll look for 256gb sd card then. Usually one game is about 10gb? For instance Legends Of Zelda or Pokémon Moon/Sun (do they have it for switch?)

Yeah there is advantages buying digital games. You get more gold coins when buying digitally, which you can use to exchange as discounts.
I think if you pay 60usd on the eshop you can get 5% back. Basically buying 60usd game gives you 300 gold coins which is equivalent to 3usd.

If you want 128GB you can also, but you'll probably have to delete more games, if you don't mind that, and redownload if you want to play again.
For Legend of Zelda it's about 13gb if i'm not mistaken.

Hi

I tried it with the US account but ZIP code is required for tax purpose. If this is the case what should we provide for the ZIP code, any idea?

Closest would be amiibos.
But if you mean save editing.
Not at the moment.
Unless you jail break it and edit the hex value of your save file manually.

Thanks for the info....
but this save editing can apply any cheats?

Hex editing.
Which means it’s not tick and you get the cheats like game genie on the 3ds.
A lot of things needs to be done.

I’m waiting for cheats too. But don’t expect a user friendly version to be released anytime soon.

Zelda BoTW is a must. If you want a cool shooter game try Splatoon 2.
Racing game, Mario Kart 8..JRPG, Xenoblade 2, or the retro new released one Octopath Traveler.

Oh and if you don't already have one, a Pro Controller, for mostly anything on TV mode.

Mario Kart 8, Zelda BOTW and Splatoon are must haves

Rocket League, Stardew Valley and Hollow Knight also gives plenty of playtime if you want cheaper options

Dear all switch owners.

Heard bout switch long time ago but wanted to get ps4pro but since days ago out of no where I started to pay attention on switch. Please note that I have not much knowledge bout console. After having done some research I still need to ask some question before I pull the trigger. Hope anyone would clear my doubt.

1. Is there any official nintendo shops around?
2. How's the after sales service? Is maxsoft the official warranty provider? Where do we send faulty switch? Any repair centre in Kl selangor area?
3. Where is the best place to shop for switch? Any recommended shop or any recommended seller in lazada?
4. Is it worth to get a second hand switch? Saw one month old red switch with Mario odyssey bundle seller for 1.3k while lazada selling new for 1.5k. Is there anything I should look out for if shop for 2nd hand set? Can it be locked and unable to factory reset it? How do we know if the device is under legit local manufacturer warranty and not some grey import shop warranty?
5. How's the heat management for the device? Does it gets hot?

Thanks
