So what I have learned is that no one actually has real friends anymore, everything is just online friendships...

Now the Switch has made me depressed for society. Damn you Nintendo!

Hey, there's nothing fake about online friends. My husband started out as one of them!

Local multiplayer is inherently fun. Playing with people who are nearby is just a good time, and always has been. The problem in recent years with that type of game is that it is increasingly harder to get people together to play. This is especially true when you have to get them together in a single location. Convincing two or three of my friends to come to my house for a fun evening is difficult no matter what we were planning on doing.

I think this is just called "getting old". Grouping up with friends offline nowadays is difficult for me, too, but the Switch could be for other people like what the N64 was for me back when I was in college, maybe even better.

Man, we're all old, aren't we?
 

Has there been word on if the virtual console or other eshop games will be there at launch?

Not really. One of the announced games for March is Has-Been Heroes by Frozenbyte (the Trine developers), so that seems to imply an eShop with downloadable indie games if not at launch, then very soon afterward. Also, the paid online service will include access to a Virtual Console game each month (and only that month), so VC seems likely to be present around launch as well.

NISA appears to have leaked the box design. Hopefully Nintendo of America is a little clearer about the launch titles and stuff. With that said, I pre-ordered the Neon NS at Best Buy.

That looks great. I'm a bit behind on my Disgaeas, but will definitely be picking that up. (Also, how does a game publisher "leak" their own box art? XD)

Also, if I Am Setsuna somehow gets a physical release on Switch, I'll likely go that route instead of buying it on Steam.

 

Oh, and I'm very, very happy that we're getting a region-free Nintendo system for the first time since the DS Lite.

Right now, the only real annoyance is having to buy Puyo Puyo Tetris again and the accessory prices, especially the Pro controller and extra JoyCons. Other than that, I'm more than happy to wait out the launch shortages and get a Switch later in the year (the sweet spot would be when Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is out, but who knows what supply will be like then :razz:).

I think I found your problem. The beat speeds up every floor, which can be quite worse than playing a couple songs in DDR because you can't really "stop" per say. Technically it's possible, but yeah.
 
Fun game though and there's an expansion (?) on the way. I don't remember what it included. I tend to play with my keyboard on this kind of game though. Controller would feel too inaccurate for me, however a dance pad wouldn't be bad if I still have the leg stamina for that kind of thing. I'm probably more likely to pull a muscle at this point.

Yeah, if I decide to make a serious attempt to beat this thing, I'll be using keyboard controls for sure. It is a good workout with a pad, though.

Playing Dragon Quest Heroes right now and recently got Terry in my party. I don't remember much about Dragon Quest VI but... was Terry always an asshole?

I don't think this is spoilery, but when he's first introduced in DQH, he's all Standoffish Loner Swordsman Dude who's like, "I don't need anyone's help."

Actual RPG-wise, not playing anything right now save for Pokemon Sun. It's not one of the best, but still okay; been taking my time with it. Oh, and also Crypt of the NecroDancer, which is pretty decent, but exhausting with a dance pad.
