Is Tetris launch? Getting that too but thought it was April

One thing not touched on is how my Nintendo will work with the switch

At least on mobile, achievements have been able to earn free IAP type stuff which is awesome and makes them worthwhile. Also able to earn some platinum points which can be used on discounts on the eshop. I really hope they expand on this.

If I'm going to buy all these Switch games and not play them I might as well just buy the games and worry about the $5000 system later. 

 

I'm getting:

-Super Bomberman R

-The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+

-Puyo Puyo Tetris

 

I think they've had some pretty cool choices for launch games so far.  It's nice to see some more Japanese games make an appearance. With GCU and Prime the $40 and $50 initial price points are welcome too.   You don't feel bad about picking up something for $32 on launch week just because you felt like it.   I'm hoping for more English-friendly Asia releases like on the Vita!

I consider the inclusion of that evil dog a personal slight against me. How dare you. What's next, a Karen gif?

On topic:

Have the developers of Bomberman announced anything about improving performance? The multiplayer I played at PAX South was pretty lack luster. It wasn't nearly as smooth as the trailers showed.

I think it's interesting that the Switch is poised to completely take the Vita's position for smaller Japanese games.

 

Also, I imported Puyo Puyo Tetris years ago and it fucking rules, so I'm thrilled that it's getting a stateside release.

You should be able to hide your post, but I'm not sure if that's possible on mobile.

I'm actually really curious to see how My Nintendo and their new paid online system will work with one another. We've been told there will be "exclusive discounts", but that's My Nintendo's schtick. Will they link together somehow, or just offer randomly chosen different discounts? What will be the arbitrary division between a game that My Nintendo discounts vs the paid online system? GIVE ME ANSWERS, NINTENDO.

I think this is on topic. I discussed it in a previous thread. For curiosities sake the switch I put up on eBay got 395 plus shipping. Not too stoked on that. Tax is 20 bucks, shippings 20, eBay fees will be 40. Not really any profit there. Maybe I suck at this. WHO KNOWS (I do).

Technically it isn't the same since mods will still be able to see your post, but no one else will.

In the other thread someone mentioned they'd want to see a gold cart for Zelda. Were any of the DS/3DS Zelda games on a gold cart? I own most of them, and non of them are. Unless one of the one's I don't have is.

I don't think so sadly. I loved the different color cartridges for N64 and NES.

I have yet to buy anything digital from Nintendo since my original Wii died. All my Virtual Console games probably could have been transferred to my replacement if I called Nintendo but the Wii U was already announced at that point and it's not like they would have transferred to that. I still have a bunch of Wii credit stashed somewhere that was bought tax-free but I don't think it was even usable on the Wii U.

 

Nintendo better have gotten their act together with accounts on the Switch because it's looking like a whole lot of games aren't even going to be available on cartridge.

I canceled my pre-order from Best Buy but I'm still oddly tempted to try and pre-order again. It's a sick compulsion. I know if I can just wait until launch I'll be fine and I can be patient and wait until there's better value, but I just can't shake the desire to pre-order in spite of the fact that it's grossly expensive for what you get and the line-up is abysmal.

Does anyone have first-hand experience or feedback on the Pro controller? I placed a pre-order at Amazon but am still on the fence if I want to keep my order or not. $70 for a controller is insane and if it's not really needed with Zelda or Mario Kart I'm happy to wait for a sale.

Well, sadly you missed out bc through a convoluted system you could transfer your entire wii vc to your wiiu includig your wii digital store balance.

You could access it all through the wii channel, it was in effect a wii in your wiiu bc it had the old hardware

Oddly enough they have a NNID and a Nintendo acocunt now and I believe they will merge these. This is how they will move away from accounts tied to hardware. Since the NnID can be used on 3ds and wiiu

You can use your points on the Wii U, in the Wii shop channel.
Assuming you still have them on cards. Idk if those cards expire...don't know much about the Wii.

I think only certain BB stores are having a midnight launch - might want to update OP to reflect that.

Is it needed? No. I used the joycons for the Zelda and Mario Kart demo and it felt just fine.

If you are adamant about a standard controller design or have huge hands, I would recommend the pro controller though. It felt great in my hands and the triggers are more satisfying than the ones on the joycons.
