    Really exited to play Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel, MGS 2, 3, MGR, Valve games. And Fortnite 60FPS!

    nope
    Will need octopad because I don't believe it supports joypads (joycon or other) anyway but yes! That would be DOPE.

    Getting the joycons to act as a dualshock 4 should be pretty easy, its already easy to do on Windows.

    oh boy.... hope there's a new release of PES for Android, never considered this as an option but surely has to be better than native FIFA 19 on Switch

    Is there a good saturn emulator for Android? That's mostly all I'd want. The one in Lakka freezes within about 5 min :(

    If by that you mean are you able to sideload APK files, then the answer is yes. As a general rule of thumb, if a device runs Android you can sideload APKs onto it.

    I don't know much about Saturn emulation really at all, but from a quick Google search uoYabause (http://www.uoyabause.org) seems to be your best bet.

    Take it a step further! Android split-screens. You could watch Emby AND play something at the same time!... port dependent.

    I've just been having a proper look for this remote-play-on-android stuff for the first time in a while, and found that the guy who used to mod the official android version has recently started really working on the android port of his own unofficial remote play software (which is already working and available on Windows). You can find him on twatter, the pinned tweet from February shows a teaser and his latest reply on that thread is from 2 days ago, saying "Android is coming along well. I'll try and post a dev update later this week."

    Makes me feel optimistic we'll have something working on the Switch before too long, unlike the official app this one should be able to handle whatever controllers android throws at it. It's going to be a paid app, but you can't have everything I guess.

    Sounds promising. I have no hassle paying for quality.
