Long flights(4+ hours) are where the Switch being portable really shines.

Do you have a portable battery/recommendation?  I regularly fly for work ~4.5 hours and usually bring my Vita and 3DS, but as time goes on would bring my Switch if not for the fact the battery doesn't last the flight...

You want one with Power Delivery standard (which the standard that the Switch and its AC charger supports), so there are two/three recommendations:

The third one hasn't been in-stock recently, but I list it as well.

I've had my Switch hooked up to a TV twice now. It's a handheld to me.

 

Travel, to me that means road trip, and I have taken it in a truck/RV on 3 trips to play while driving (while someone else is driving not me..) or at night.

I've taken it to work a few times but as others have said it's kinda bulky but I have a travel case it fits in with the shell I have on it just fine. Granted I've taken my Vita to work about the same amount.. I will never put a Vita in my pocket to risk damage to the screen (either side) or the thumbsticks, protective case only. I have tossed my 3DS in my pocket though... but I rarely take it out of the house honestly.

Mainly I found that playing at work during lunch or a break, is more of a hassle than it's worth. By the time I get into the game I am playing... I have to go back to work. Playing BotW for 5-10 minutes isn't worth it, maybe some super quick fast paced game would work better..

 

I have a lot of crap I have to take to work with me daily, so I have a backpack I toss everything into and the travel case for either the Vita or Switch fits just fine so theres not that bulky case to hold onto.

 

Edit: I know there are a lot of people that take them to work and play on a train/bus etc, look at Japan for example. I forgot I took a trip to Louisville this summer and took my Switch and played the entire flight there and back as well as in the hotel at night.

I have a cover thing that protects the screen/sticks without adding any extra bulk so I can still fit my Vita in my pocket.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Another fun fact, the Oracle games started out as a trilogy, but it was to hard to do the link feature across three, so they opted for just two. And they are very much like Awakening, and along with Awakening, are the only Zelda games I've played and finished more than once. Really great games.

I personally agree, I liked LttP, but never as much as others did.

I use the cable that came with my Pro controller and just plug that in to the Switch. Charges while you play just fine, not a fan of portable battery solutions.

Ah my flights never seem to have in flight power options.

 

Thanks for the suggestions Dranakin and Thebacklash, will look into those :D

What plane has 2.1 A USB ports? All the ones I've seen are like 500 mA. But a lot of them have outlets, which is much better, obviously.

That game looks really good actually (Noitu Love: Devolution).  Anyone recommend on 3DS?  Not sure how well that'd play/feel cramped vs say on PC via Steam.

 

Also heads up for those that backed Yooka Laylee on Switch (changed their backing to Switch) - It's released!  Downloading now.  Check your emails!

Thanks for all the replies to my question. Had a great trip to NYC, was a little freaked out that there was a bombing this morning in the exact place I had been yesterday. But my switch traveled well, had it in a backpack that I decided to keep locked up on the bus since the holiday crowds were huge.
https://www.amazon.c...h/dp/B07457V4XJ
This is the grip I used and it felt great, it slightly covers the shoulder buttons, but didn’t hinder my Zelda play.
Also, I read on Reddit about the charger for the google pixel working well with the switch, and I can concur.
It’s able to charge the switch slightly faster than what breath of the wild can consume.

Where's details on that promotion? I Bought it for my WiiU, but when I go to the purchase screen and checkout for the 3DS version it shows up as $3.99 still.

It's mentioned on the game's page on the eShop itself, but not the site. Maybe the promotion doesn't stack with the sale?

Forgot about the USB ports, but true they are the low power ones, actual outlets are best.

I have been holding out on buying sonic mania and wonder boy ( I know it was on sale for black Friday, but didn't get it)
Hoping at least sonic would be on some type of a sale for Christmas.

I got wonder boy during the black friday sale and am really enjoying it. Definitely difficult and doesn't give you a ton of direction but fun when you figure things out. Being able to switch to the original graphics on the fly is really cool too.

So I have mynintendo coins that I don't forsee myself being able to use on anything useful for switch before they expire.

Can somebody with experience in the matter let me know if I redeem them for the 3ds/Wii u games that are available will I get a code that I can give away to somebody who could use it? Or does it auto redeem to my profile?

Totally not batman...

There's no guaranteed date for any holiday sales. Some devs/pubs might put stuff on sale this week, but it'll probably be the week before Christmas.
