Nintendo Switch

So.... anyone got one yet?
Planning to get one?

The bf and I would like one (currently a PC gaming and lightly Playstation household), but we don't have the cash upfront and as with most consoles, it might be good to wait for a second generation.
This becomes more clear to me the more I read about things seeming not that high quality or how one has to pay a lot to buy extra but kind of sort of necessary parts.

The concept seems really nice though. We don't have a TV in the bedroom, but taking some gaming along to snuggle in would be so nice. Also some games just need to be played more handheld and this gives that option while still letting them look pretty nice.

Re: Nintendo Switch

Ah I would love one. Simply for Breath of the wild. But just before xmas I bought myself a PS4 so I think a switch so soon would be a tad much xD

Re: Nintendo Switch

I've never really owned Nintendo systems since the SNES, for which I was too young to reallly play or ever buy games for, so Zelda has largely passed me by, but I theoretically totally understand the appeal.

Personally, I saw Stardew Valley would be out for it and that was a game that playing on PC always made me long for the allnighters spent in bed, playing Harvest Moon for always just one more day. So having it on a console that I could also take to bed sounds just really cool.

But aside from problems with the console and sturdiness of some things, I prefer to wait until consoles have a good library of games.
My bf bought a PS4 sometime last year and I still think the purchase has just barely payed off. It's only starting to now, slowly.

Re: Nintendo Switch

A friend of mine bought it the second he could, to play the Zelda game; He said if you have the money just laying around, sure get it. But if it's JUST for Zelda, or any other reason, probably hold off on getting it for now. The cost of buying it isn't worth the ONE good game for it currently, and while it has nifty things it can do, it's super expensive still right now. And again, only the ONE good game for it kind of hurts it, with no real plans to make other great games soon enough to warrant speeding out after it xD

On a personal note, I've seen a LOT of them selling second-hand, from people that literally got it just for Zelda, played thru Zelda, and are done now. I'd say go for those! Chances are they're still super new-like condition, and are going for ~$200 less than retail :D

Re: Nintendo Switch

My sister and I waited until the midnight launch for the Switch and both of us were able to get one. So far I have Breath of the Wild, Arms, and Splatoon 2. (She has the same games plus Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.) I really am enjoying my Switch, though I wish there were more games out for it, but that's something that will be resolved overtime. For the rest of the year, I'm planning on getting Super Mario Odyssey, Stardew Valley (if it does come out on Switch this year), Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and I think that's it. I'm hoping that a core Animal Crossing game will come out eventually for it since the Wii U got skipped, though Nintendo still is going to release a mobile game for the series.

Re: Nintendo Switch

We get a Wii U from my in laws that we NEVER used, so we never really jumped on the switch either. Our personal rule is that we have to have at least 5 games that we want to buy for it and even then we tend to wait until we can buy it used. new games systems just aren't worth the price for us usually. Maybe one day we'll get one. An animal crossing game would be nice and I think I remember something about a fire emblem game? I would be totally down for getting one for that.

Re: Nintendo Switch

There definitely is a core Fire Emblem game in development for Switch. There's also the spinoff Fire Emblem Warriors game coming out for both Switch and the New 3DS, New 3DS XL, and New 2DS XL.

Re: Nintendo Switch

Yeah fire emblem does make it really tempting. I guess I'm still annoyed because the whole thing with the wii u was that zelda was supposed to come out for that system and never did. So I'll wait until games are ACTUALLY out to make a call on that from now on.

Re: Nintendo Switch

Breath of the Wild was pretty ridiculous with all its delays. After waiting so long I wasn't hyped anymore for its release, even when I was waiting in line for getting my Switch. I was honestly much more stoked for the system itself and Splatoon 2.

Waiting until games are actually out is never a bad idea. People who got a PS4 just play Kingdom Hearts 3 are probably pretty mad right now.

Re: Nintendo Switch

I had to wait until I had money to get my switch, so pre-ordering wasn't an option in March lol. Luckily I was able to nab one a few weeks ago, and now I'm just waiting for Mario Odyssey to come out.

I literally only bought the system for that one game, and I also want Breath of the Wild, but I'd rather buy it used and save some money if I can lol. I shamefully bought Mario Kart Deluxe just to have a game on the console, then remembered I already had it for the Wii U (also bought the DLC). ;;
