    This may sound like a stupid question, but can game downloads continue when system is in sleep mode? Help and thoughts appreciated :)

    Thanks for info!! :)
    Is FRMX a good game? I loved the F-Zero Series... Is that comparable?

    Not an authority on these games but I have heard a lot of comments of waiting for Redout instead.

    Quick side question: I purchased an 120 GB mSD card for my Switch today. Can games from eshop be put onto it instead of on the internal system memory? If yes, how? I am currently downloading some eshop games now. Thoughts appreciated :)

    This is the one I was originally thinking of! This will be great.

    I think you just select where you want it installed. My updates and the Stripper Clips Demo I downloaded today installed to mSD. Saving internal for saves. Sorry I can remember the exact procedure but maybe look in settings under data management?

    In my experience Fast RMX is fun and easier, while Redout is better for the more hardcore racing game fans, and is quite a bit harder.
    For me it just automatically started placing my games on the SD after it was inserted and formatted.

    It seems like my mSD card is being used when I looked in Data Management. Thing is, I did not format it when I put it in my Switch. Does mSD card need to be formatted, or am I ok as it seems to be putting stuff on it? Thoughts appreciated :)

    I had previously formatted my mSD to Fat32 for the Wii U, so it probably reformatted my SD back to exFAT as it's supposed to be by default.

    Ok, but this mSD I have in my Switch is a new card I got today. Thing is, I did not format it or anything when I put it in the Switch, yet it seems to be copying stuff to it. In Data Management, it shows some stuff on the mSD card. Do you guys think I will be ok, I mean will the system still use the mSD card, even though I did not format it in the Switch? Thoughts appreciated :)

    You should be fine. If, for any reason, it needed to specially format the card? You'd have gotten a "No MicroSD card" error like the 3DS or it would have told you upon booting into the home menu.
