I’ve tested a few different screen protectors for the Switch but after recently needing to change it I found my favourite.
Why use a screen protector on the Switch?
I really don’t like screen protectors on my iOS devices but on the Switch I thought it was necessary. The screen itself is plastic so it’ll pick up scratches easily. This added to the fact you could scratch it just getting it into and out of the dock forced me to make the decision to get one.
The screen protectors
So I started off with a cheap plastic screen protector which lasted me about 6 months before changing it. I was clear for the most part but picked up scratches really easily.
Second was still plastic but a little more expensive and it held up until a week ago.
None of this matters now I’ve found my favourite. The Orzly Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector.
I found it easy to apply, it comes with two in case you mess it up and looks good.
In the pack you get a cleaning cloth and also a sticker to get the dust off your screen before applying.
I did have to lift it off once to get rid of a little dust but thankfully it went back down ok so only used one protector.
Here’s the Amazon link.
Whilst I’m working I listen to a lot of music. I default to something John Williams but also listen to video game soundtracks. Here are some of my favourites (linked to Apple Music).

I’ve not long finished the campaign mode in Ace Combat 7 and wanted to write up some thoughts on how I feel about the game now that’s I’ve finished it.
First off if you know my writing you’ll know this’ll be a shorter review than you might be used to.
In a nutshell Ace Combat 7 is an enjoyable experience if you’re familiar with the franchise or into planes and want to have some fun. There is a point system and you don’t have access to all of the planes straight away. Prepare to grind it out in multiplayer to get the points quickly.
I’d recommend playing through the first couple of missions then go straight into multiplayer. This is the quickest way to get points (called MRP in game). You can then get all the places you need to make the game a little more doable.
This is a very difficult game and at times I almost put it away. I persevered though and by getting MRP and picking up the F-22 raptor I managed to get through it.
No spoilers but the very last bit of game takes a bit of time and a lot of precision (and patience!).
In terms of looks it’s one of the best I’ve seen on PS4. Planes are detailed and the after mission replays are just stunning. Think Gran Turismo level replays but with planes!
A quick word on the multiplayer. It’s online dogfighting, which I enjoyed for the most part but gets a little repetitive after a while. The matching and room managing also has some way to go and you can find yourself waiting too long on one player whose spending ages customising their plane for the game.
Oh, lastly there’s a free flight mode if you want to just well fly around. There’s no replays here though.
So would I recommend picking it up, yes and no. This is definitely a game that once I finished the campaign I was so shattered from the experience I needed a break. For me I won’t be doing a replay through it. I’ve played multiplayer a lot and done with that too. If you’re into planes or if you’re a fan of Ace Combat I recommend, if you’re not then I would avoid.
I’ve noticed I’m playing more and more PlayStation games lately and after getting very frustrated playing Ace Combat 7 (it’s a great game but very hard) I’ve unplugged my PS4. I want to swap over to my Nintendo Switch and start to relax a bit more with my gaming.
I’ve got a few games but need some recommendations from the community.
What do you recommend I play to relax a bit?
MRP is kind of an in game credit that you earn in various ways across Ace Combat. You can use these to upgrade your jets or buy new ones. I’ve found that I’ve gotten stuck in the single player so wanted to get myself an F-22 Raptor to help me. After redoing several of the early missions to get MRP (think of it as XP) I did some testing.
It turns out the fastest way to earn it is to play multiplayer. For a 5 minute match I’m roughly doubling what I would get in single player. Maybe 100,000 on a good game (for me).
If you are grinding to get MRP then use multiplayer.
I can’t believe how great this game looks, I did a little livestream earlier so wanted to share the entire video.
If you want to see how impressive the graphics are skip to 18 minutes in as each mission comes with a replay just like GT.
I’ve always liked the Spider-Man suit from the Sam Raimi movies and yesterday it was added (for free) to the PS4 Spider-Man game.
I love this game and after completing I’m still doing side missions and collecting stuff.
