If you ride the bus or something 1-2 hours a day, it'd be a great idea. If you're playing at home on the TV and you already have another console (Xbone/PS4/PC), then probably don't bother.

Even if you have other consoles and game mainly at home, the switch is still excellent for gaming while your other family members want to take over the tv.

The switch is a must own device for my needs as someone with little spare time for gaming at home.

 

I've spent majority of time playing between flights, during lunch at work, and surprisingly long cardio sessions on the treadmill.

 

It's unlike any other portable system due to the functionality of the detachable joycons.  I love the thing.

Someone talk me out of buying a Switch today.


Breath of the Wild is the greatest game of all time.

Honestly the Switch is the best pick up and play system in a long while. You can pick it up from the dock and start playing right away. I am pretty much buying my indie games on the Switch, as they will get played there. The controller parts are a bit weird, but you get used to them. Overall I love the thing a lot. Also Nintendo first party titles are pretty great as are Nintendo exclusive games. This isn't like the WiiU era. People actually are buying the Switch, so games keep coming out for it.

Totally disagree but glad you enjoyed it.

Without the pro controller it's a pain to play docked. As a portable it's the best thing since sliced bread.

So, should I use a referral link for the MassGenie deal? I just signed up but didn't buy the eshop points yet.

Has anyone who backed Bloodstained Rotn digital copy get their code from fan gamer yet? I was hoping they’d be sent early so I could pre-install it. Most likely we’ll get the codes after the 25th.


The codes are up on your backer page and you can download now.

I've heard that the handheld screen isn't that great looking. Is that just online resolution nerd bullshit or does it have some merit? I think I would rather play on the handheld screen even when I have the TV free.


I’m not a resolution junkie, I’m a video game player. I’ve yet to find a game I didn’t want to continue playing due to the resolution in handheld mode. Could some games look better on my PS4? Absolutely. Could I play those games on my PS4 while at work or anywhere else away from my house? Absolutely not.

Got my Bloodstained code. First and only game I've backed, so I guess that worked out. However, I have heard that the Switch version has had some performance issues...

It's fine honestly.  I've never been playing a game on it and thought it looked bad or needed to be better for me to enjoy it.  And the games I get for my Switch are not games that I would get for my Xbox or PS anyway.

the switch is great. i mostly play handheld so i invested in two accessories 1) flip grip - for vertical gaming such as old school arcade (donkey kong) and pinball fx3 and 2) satisfye pro grip - this addresses the ergonomics of lengthy handheld play...comfortable like a real controller

#1 was $12 and #2 ultra slim case and grip was $27 with promo

i highly recommend the switch and these grips

I think the only real reason to wait is for the rumored hardware upgrade/iterations.

I think I’ll buy Super Mario Maker 2 for the coins then trade in back within 48 hours for the $60 then rebuy it back preowned in 2 weeks for $45 at Gamestop again.

Unless you are using $60 in reward certs, or live somewhere with no sales tax, you are taking a loss on sales tax. Might as well for the copies everyone else trades in in 48 hours. Odds are, they won't have gotten the coins either.

Picked up a few games in the Devolver sale from a few weeks ago and over the weekend I managed to beat Gris and Red Strings Club. I highly recommend them both. Both games have a great sense of atmosphere and although they approach their narratives in completely different ways, the stories were engrossing. It was also refreshing to finish two great games in one weekend without actually engaging in any combat, though that’s about to change since the other two games I bought were Downwell and Ape Out...

Yes i have trade credit and don’t get charged tax on purchases here.

In NYC there’s a 15 day hold on trade ins.

I also bought a bunch of those games but I can't peel myself away from Slay the Spire. I am obsessed.

Slay the Spire works really well for sure. I bought it too even after putting in many hours on the PC. I still have Gris to play and The Messenger. I did beat Katana Zero which was fun enough but didn't care for the story really. Still fun though but a bit overrated I think. It does set up for a sequel.

That Ape is just defending itself! And guns fired are by the cruel humans. And as for Downwell, that little fellow can't help that bullets shoot out of their feet when they jump!

Fangamer was offering them awhile back, but I'm not sure if they still are.

They were sold out for a long time but now they're taking preorders that will ship mid August.

Yikes. Looks like Bloodstained on Switch is running poorly. Very disappointing. Guess I'll be cancelling that Amazon pre-order.

I have a couple pre-ordered, but I have a feeling the  rumored Switch Pro that is going to be announced is not going to be compatible with this... I'm hoping I'm wrong.
