I'm trying to get those n64 controllers, I have my email setup to receive notification for them as well as telegram. however, telegram can't do specifics like email, so it notifies you of all accessories for the switch. got notified of skyward sword joycons on gamestop a few hours ago. already have them. I thought they'd be available again today, since this is the day the first batch ships, but I guess not.

I haven't tried them, planned to play skyward sword with them. I like the motion controls in that game. they're sitting on my bed as we speak.

the right joycon on my Mario red and blue switch failed. I've been in contact with Nintendo as they sent me the wrong color back. if I get the right color, I'll buy the extension pack but only if.

You can ship it to nintendo and they will fix it free of charge, I don't know about wrong joycons though.

I know. that's what I did, but they sent me the odyssey Mario right joycon back, which is a darker red.
Oh no, I just remembered, in the page where you put in your info about shipping your joycons back to nintendo, It said to be wary about limited edition joycons, Your best option is to try and find one on Ebay or whatever

Sounds nice. I love OOT, but on DolphinVR it was... the only VR experience I've ever not been able to tolerate.
SM64 is doable for me, but OOT at 20FPS gave me massive headaches, eyestrain, I never wanted to try it again :rofl: and I happen to be the most motion sickness tolerant VR user I've ever met (out of several thousand)

However, this new thing says "30FPS upscaled to 90", and I couldn't ignore something like that. Even if it's just re-projected, I could handle that much better than the native 20.

I'll have to try this out though- fixed culling (big immersion and experience enhancer), draw distance, no HUD (HUDs are just a giant ugly transparent square a few feet in front of you in VC VR games usually), and a special texture pack specifically for it.
Only complaint there that's unaddressed is the "one joystick" movement style that Kaze used for this and SM64, but fixing that would require making an entire new camera system too.

It actually says that that only is a possibility if the joycon is unfixable. Nintendo assured me they'd send me the right color this time. I gave them my switch's serial number.

Good luck!
I think Nintendo has done it. I went to bed early last night, and I just woke up (not very tired anymore), and I got a shipping notification. here's what it shows:
