Ah, the Switch eShop… A source of both joy and pain in equal measure. On the one hand, the eShop is our gateway to new digital games; a veritable smorgasbord of awesome first-party titles, incredible indie gems, and a selection of, uh… let’s say, enthusiastic games.

The eShop itself, however, is far from great. With more and more games being added on a weekly basis, the eShop has gradually become slower to load, more difficult to navigate, and an overall pain in the bum to use since the Switch launched five years back.

Our fabulous video producers Zion and Felix got together to discuss their eShop woes, including the distinct lack of any background music, the inability to take screenshots, and the agonising lag as you scroll through the selection of games on offer.

So grab yourself a brew and have a listen via the video below. Be sure to let us know in the comments what you think of the eShop and what you’d change to make it a better experience!
