So who won this pointless pissing contest over a 3 year old comment?
This place would be pretty dull if we just talked about matters that actually matter.
My thoughts on the Switch:
-I hate the Joycon controller. I really despise the design, and using the L and R separately for motion control reminds me of the gimmicky nightmare Wii. If the pro controller was not offered( $70 ) I would be in big trouble.
-The docking station is cheap looking, and cheaply made. Aesthetically an eyesore....especially for people like me that hate the look and will never, ever use the console as a portable gaming device. Torture to have the thing in front of my TV.
Looks and feels like it was designed in a fevered rush.
I don't mind the look of the dock and actually end up using mine in handheld mode about 50% of the time.
I've used my Switch as a handheld for most of the time that I've used it. I don't mind the dock or the look of it, but my HT setup isn't really about hiding the components and my TV is mounted high enough on the wall where the dock doesn't get in the way of it.
I agree that the Joycons aren't the most ideal controllers, but for the most part they get the job done well enough for me to be satisfied. I haven't bought a pro controller but did buy 2 extra Joycons. The one issue I have with them is that the little strap slide-on piece with the L and R buttons...it's kind of annoying. It takes more effort to remove than it should (though I understand why this is) and the L/R buttons feel way to squishy and like they rarely register.
I can't wait until Super Mario Odyssey comes out, or even better, there is a really good rpg for Switch. I bought Shante a couple weeks ago and finally played it this morning for about ten minutes before I deleted it. Same with Kamiko.
I am currently downloading Mario Kart 8 and Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle and am looking forward to playing both this week.
Been playing Mario+Rabbids for a few days. It's pretty freaking great.
I'm really enjoying it. Ubisoft did a bang-up job of making this game look and feel like it was developed in-house by Nintendo and not a 3rd party. I love turn-based RPGs and while this isn't exactly a traditional RPG, it's pretty great. Right now I would say BoTW, Mario Kart 8, and Mario+Rabbids are the three best Switch games available and it really makes me excited for 2018 and the future of Switch gaming.
I got it but didn't get far yet.
Nintendo Direct announced for Thursday. Focus is on upcoming 3DS and Switch projects.
I hope they talk Virtual Console soon. My curiosity is killing me, but I bet we'll have to wait a while longer.
My friend picked up his Switch last week.
We had a blast playing Splatoon 2(no local play?) he sold me on it.
The game is just crzay fun once you start getting the feel for the levels.
Ill be picking up my copy as soon as I can afford it.
Actually, the Nintendo Direct is on Wednesday, not Thursday.
They said it will focus on upcoming releases for this fall, specifically pointing out Mario Odyssey. At this point, I would love to see them announced some Virtual Console stuff but I'm guessing they're going to have a big video on "online features" down the road that would hit Virtual Console, subscription service, and a revamped My Nintendo Rewards program all at once. The ND this week will probably just talk about holiday releases.
If you're going to get picky.
My mistake of course. I saw that it was scheduled for midnight CEST on Thursday 14th September and neglected to bother figuring out what that would equate to for North America.
I'm not particularly interested in debating the likelihood of this happening since that's not really my point and I already suspect that the chances are minimal (Not to mention that this is a Switch thread), but I'd love to see a surprise 3DS port/remaster of a past Nintendo classic be announced this week. I remember that Majora's Mask 3D was unveiled about this time of the year a few years back.
I wonder what Grezzo is up to these days now that Evil Oasis is out (I don't think they did Star Fox 64 3D, but they of course were the team behind the two well received N64 Zelda conversions on the 3DS).
6 PM Eastern / 3 PM Pacific on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017.
Now these are the Nintendo classics that I was hoping would see appear. My wait for Nintendo's classic coinop library since the Wii Virtual Console launched is finally ending
Starting on September 27th, the following Nintendo arcade classics are coming.
-Vs. Super Mario Bros.
-Clu Clu Land
Let's hope they're just the first of many. Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. are two notable absences for example.
I just streamlined the Super Mario Odyssey segment
You folks may love your Zelda BOTW(and rightly so), but this is the game I have been waiting for since 1996. I hope it delivers. It looks amazing.
Imagine a Super Mario 64 remaster that brings it up to those graphical standards.
While this is even better since it's all new, I hope that also happens someday.
Getting Zelda: BotW and Super Mario Odyssey in the same year on a new piece of hardware is pretty freaking amazing.
I am honestly really excited that we're getting Doom and Wolfenstein II on the Switch. As much as Skyrim is a big deal and LA Noire is a good mature title, Doom and Wolfenstein are the two furthest things from you'd expect on a Nintendo platform. I may actually pick them up at full price on Switch instead of cheaper (in the case of Doom, which can be found for like $15-20) on PS4 simply because I love the convenience of the Switch.
Mario Odyssey might get me to buy a switch. It would be my first Nintendo console since the original haha.
I'm betting there with be a Mario/switch bundle at some point.
