I doubt that the Switch Lite got motion control ..
but maybe you could setup the normal Switch as your second device and use it in
TV Mode, if you have one ..

Since last week whe now have Truck Driver for the Switch, is not bad,
It’s more like the Euro Truck Simulator, but the Map is not that big,
Now whe have at least 3 good Truck Games on Switch


Send from something, i guess ^^

I have a Switch Lite with Splatoon 2, and the motion-control aiming works fine in that case. I don't know about Mario though.

I bought Super Mario Odyssey, but after playing it a little while, I found out something that makes me regret my purchase a bit.

Apparently, some of Mario's moves can only be done with motion controls. Websites say you can beat the game without them, but you can't 100% complete it unless you use them.

As an almost exclusive handheld mode player, this annoys me a bit. I especially wonder how Switch Lite players handle this.
That is one of those Nintendo bullshit "features".

I think the motion-control aiming in Splatoon 2 is pretty good, and almost makes up for not having a mouse. Also you can turn it off and just aim with the stick if you like that sort of thing.

I would agree that it's not good to have actions that require shaking when there are plenty of buttons there.

What is it about the motion controls in Super Mario Odyssey that doesn't work in handheld mode? Do you need to move the two joycons independently?

It’s…okay to shake the Pro controller for certain moves, which is what I’ve been doing, but in handheld mode, shaking your entire Switch for some moves feels clunky and possibly dangerous, as you might shake it right out of your hand.
but also
The movement does not have to be dramatic or prolonged, just a quick jerk up or down or to the right or left. I’ve mostly been using the Pro controller and this has worked just fine, but even in handheld mode, you can move the whole contraption a lot less than you might initially think to get it to work.

Lol yep.

I still have and play my Wii, but only games that support classic controller (also emulators). Never used the switch motion controls. I have and play the PS Vita much more but don't like it use the motion controls there either. The touch screen is ok, but rear touch is bleh.

Good news: Everyone's favorite DS RPG that required two brains to play is getting a sequel.

Bonus good news: I found out why I haven't been copying URLs correctly lately. I thought sites were messing with my clipboard, but it turns out it was Edge's fault.

You know, back in the day on my DS, I almost gave up on TWEWY, because the very first Noise fight I got into killed me. The freaking tutorial killed me. I kept at it though, and eventually made it really far into the game.

I think I was actually at the final boss, but that's where the puzzle game aspects finally defeated my enthusiasm. There are special things you have to do during that fight, and I never could figure out what they were. I'm not sure why I didn't look at a guide or something.

Sho Minamimoto was a really popular character back in the day, but I can't imagine he's aged all too well.

2020: "Oh gross! He's all into math and memes and shit."
He's basically the Palmer Luckey of the Squeenixverse.
