  1. This is perfect for my kids who don't care for the 3d at all and want to be able to play games for the new 3ds. Price could be lower sure, but at least it comes with a power adapter. Wish they were offering at least 2 colors options in US to avoid confusion over who's system is who's.
  2. This. I fully agree. Other than indie games (which for me are mostly crap with a few rare exceptions), it seems as though it's just enhanced ports of WiiU games coming so far. Where are the 3rd parties? Where are the brand new new 1st party games? AAA games? I own a WiiU. I bought all the games being ported to Switch already. I'm done with that. So far, there is not a reason for me to buy a Switch. No killer app. BOTW doesn't count because I bought it on WiiU.
  3. The cool feature of a digital preorder is that it downloads to the WiiU right away (locked) and unlocks to be immediately playable on Midnight of the release day. Saves the waiting for it to download after going through the purchase process.
  4. Just seems odd that Nintendo has chosen not to presell BOTW on the eshop. Maybe it's intentional, to drive Switch sales over WiiU. Not really a big deal, but strange not to have that predownload feature.
  5. I don't understand the hype for all these old ports and indie games coming to Switch. I enjoyed World Of Goo and Little Inferno, but I don't think I would buy them again. They definitely aren't system sellers either. Indie games can be cool. They helped fill some of the void 3rd party devs left on WiiU, but they are more icing than cake.
  6. Exactly. Just like they tried to tell everyone the Wii version of Twilight Princess was superior.....but we all know better.
  7. http://nintendoeverything.com/aonuma-on-zelda-breath-of-the-wild-scrapped-gamepad-plans-switch-development-more/ Originally, BOTW utilized the WiiU Gamepad for some features. Instead of keeping these features, they decided to ditch them in order to make the Switch version play the same. I would have preferred that they kept those features in to differentiate the two versions. That would have given me a reason to double dip......if I ever decide to buy a Switch that is. What do you think?
  8. I'm still not sold on it. Unless some amazing info about backward compatibility and/or loyalty program comes before launch, I think I'll wait for a price drop. I bought WiiU and 3DS at launch because I was excited by both the games and system features. Switch games and features don't excite me.
  9. Still not sold on it. This is an evolution of both Wii and Wii U. HD Rumble seems interesting, but still no analog triggers. That means no serious driving/racing games. Playing without the screen is also interesting, but seems like a gimmick. None of the games were interesting enough to justify buying the console. Pay for online is a bummer. I hate to say it, but I just may have outgrown Nintendo.
  10. Looks like they have lots of ideas so far, even if they don't all come to fruition. That way it's not just a one trick pony.
  11. Tried the free stages and toad rally. Gotta say it's pretty addictive. I ended up buying it and completed the world tour. It's really short if you aren't interested in getting those special coins, but still lots of fun. It crashes when I try looking for Facebook friends. So far that's the only glitch I've encountered.
  12. Love the relaxed feeling of wiimote&nunchuck. I'll try it, but they look soooo tiny. Might be difficult.
  13. No I doubt it. If they are trying to maximize the resolution and framerate anyway.
  14. It doesn't, but it helps. With cartridges, you would have to repurchase any that were lost/stolen/damaged, but with digital games and a proper account system, you only need to redownload. You still have to buy another unit. Hopefully Nintendo will sell the tablet and dock separately.
