In Topic: GS: Get $150 toward Switch for New 3DS, WiiU trade in

Yesterday, 02:35 PM

There have been a pile of Switch consoles sitting at my local Target in the busy Durham, NC area all this week.  Kind of surprised.

I can't hate on a Plants vs. Zombies sale. That's a series I would have no problem double dipping on.

 

And remember, if you hate Homefront: The Revolution you're playing it wrong:

 

 

Prediction for next week: If the sales suck, I will blame John Cena.

Still wish it were "Future Perfect" with multiplayer.  Ah well.

Have you actually tried one? It's the most 'nintendo' feeling console I've tried in years.

 

I have.  It feels good in the hand.  I don't have a deep seeded dislike of Nintendo hardware like many people who would point out how much better the Vita's hardware specs are than the 3DS.  Who cares if the game library isn't as good? 

 

I overlooked Nintendo's platform issues and happily bought a Wii and a Wii U at launch.  I've enjoyed them both, but I've personally had it with their decisions.  This was their chance to come up with "Nintendo-like" solutions to what have become solid standards in the modern gaming landscape: unified accounts that aren't tied to hardware, suit of social tools, meta gaming systems like achievements, etc etc etc. 

 

If and when they release a hardware revision and there is a solid 3 or 4 first party games that I can't already play on the Wii U, I might take the plunge, but I just don't understand the excitement around this console at launch.

I am butthurt. I grew up playing the original nes. I want a great Nintendo console. This thing isn't it. They need to do better.

Still amazed people are embracing this garbage platform.

 

1 step forward, 2 steps back.

 

Plastic screen, remote issues, no achievement/trophy/cards system, no proper unified account system, friend codes, terrible battery life, etc etc etc. 

 

What are all you people smoking?
