I'm playing the two you mentioned. BM0 is a lot easier than I remember from the 8Bit days, until the final boss.

Zelda is flat out amazing. It is the hardest Zelda game though. Prepare to get one shot killed many, many times.

I have been playing BM0 and BotW. Also, if you have anyone to play it with, Snipperclips is a lot of fun!

I wonder how snipperclips is just as a single player?

Any suggestions on any other games to try out?

The puzzles are the same for 1 or 2 players, you just switch between the 2 character's. The puzzles are still fun, but the game definitely focuses on multiplayer.

I've been having fun with Bomberman, but if you aren't a big fan of the series the price tag is probably a little high.

Other than the Japanese Puyo Puyo demo I haven't played anything else, though I've heard good things about Fast RMX.

Zelda, Shovel Knight Treasure Trove, Fast RMX and VOEZ for me. I stopped playing Blaster Master because I beat it, but so far having fun with all. Don't really see anything else that interests me until Puyo Puyo Tetris and Mario Kart 8 come out. I lied. I forgot that I ordered I Am Setsuna from Amazon.jp

I'm currently playing Zelda, but I also have Bomberman and Blaster Master. I'll probably get to them now that I beat Zelda.

Zelda ofcourse and some Bomberman.

I want to give Has Been Heroes a shot see how that plays.

Splatoon 2 Testfire 1st hour was really solid, hopefully I can play most of the upcoming ones.

Splatoon isn't bad
Please refer to my thread about it

But besides Zelda, is there another must have?

I like Master Blaster 0 (what I have played at a friends) getting the shovel night stuff is pretty cool. Tuesday is that Heroes game which looks pretty promising and for 20$ for physical I would say worth a look.

I need more motivation to spend $

Like the console itself and Zelda was worth it ($340 total for all) but I can't justify another full $60 (aka $47 GCU) for anything else but an amazing display of super Mario bros


I like the look of splatoon 2, and while I agree that I didn't see a huge change from 1, I still hope Nintendo continues to push the envelope

(SF and MK sound great)

Been playing Zelda with small breaks for Fast RMX and Bomberman, but those breaks are few and far between. Also, Amazon.co.jp should be sending out Setsuna today.

Bought and played some 1,2 switch today.

It's a great party game but the HD Rumble isn't anything to brag about let alone a system seller.

I did enjoy the chance to play it with some non-gamers and it's something you would play when you have guest.

I cannot recommend it for more then $10 or bundle with the console.

Zelda is a obvious launch purchase buy soon enough I've been playing since launch day.

Tetris I've enjoyed and easily can say to buy it without any problems.

Bomberman is a great co-op game and party game

Highly recommend it for $30 or less.


I'm looking to buy Binding of Issac or waiting for Mario Kart 8 digially next month.

I'm hoping we see eshop cards for $5/$10 off so I can stock up enough to buy it

Been playing Zelda and just love it. Going to get snipperclips to play with the girlfriend. Nothing else really interests me for their current price and already have shovel knight on 3ds. Crossing my fingers they will announce a REAL metroid game at E3.

Just got my Switch last week and started playing it Saturday night (I gave my kids the first game experiences with it).  I'm currently playing Zelda.  I played the demo for Snipperclips twice with my kids... I will buy that for some more multiplayer fun.  Beyond that, I have Ultra Street Fighter 2 coming this week.

 

I plan on picking up new releases that interest me to take advantage of the prime discount.  Anything that doesn't seem like I'll actually play it can sit until the price goes down.  I'm interested in Bomberman (loved the series since the first one on NES) but I can wait for it to have a price drop.

 

I'm planning to get Mario Kart & Puyo Puyo Tetris in April and am heavily leaning towards Lego City Undercover as I haven't played it and I'm sure I'd make good use out of the 2-player co-op.   But I'm hoping someone reviews it first to make sure it runs well on the system as I know it won't get played for a while as Zelda is a beast of a game and I'm loving every second of it.

I wasn't home and DHL is requiring a signature, so hopefully i'll have mine tomorrow, but yeah, for roughly $8 and have it less than 3 days later is awesome.

Yeah, I just completely misread the release date on my Amazon preorder for it.

Now that I finally got a refund from Amazon for losing my I am Setsuna Switch copy,

I'm thinking of picking up the Asian version since it has the English cover as well.

Currently playing Snake Pass. It definitely takes some time getting used to the controls (maybe about an hour) but it's a cute game. Very nice music and a challenge trying to find all of the collectables from each level. Each increases the difficulty in obtaining the 3 keys to complete the level, blue orbs and 5 coins. I've played about 2.5 hours so far and 100% the first 6 levels (I read the are 15 total).

Last I checked Bomberman is $10 off plus GCU at best buy. I think it is more tempting to get. Any thoughts on it playing solo?

Dont wait.  This game is such a special game.  I played it on the PS4 when it came out and I'm rebuying/importing a physical copy for switch.
