Default Nintendo Switch

Anyone get one?

I happened upon one by mistake and have wanted to buy it, so I did. Seems there's only one game out right now, but Zelda is a surprisingly good game. It's like Dark Souls 3 in an open world made for exploration. You can pick up the weapons off dead enemies and items break after using them a bit. There's also a counter system for attacking, which I haven't seen. And you can make elixirs and food items to restore health and stats.

Maybe someone might want to play a multiplayer game like mario kart or mario party when they come out?

I want one pretty badly, but my economic situation is a little on the bad side so I'm going to have to be content with getting the Wii u version of Zelda and waiting a few months to get the switch.
I'll be sure to get back to you once I get a switch though
^-^

Oh, you might as well wait then. Zelda is really the only game out right now. They also need to fix some things, like no bluetooth headphone support (despite having bluetooth) and no portable battery chargers. So for some reason standard usb-c battery packs don't charge it fast enough while playing a game; basically the power adapter sends 15v, instead of 5v, through the usb-c connector, but 5v will still charge it slowly. It's weird and I don't understand why they did that, especially when it only uses a 4,310mah battery. I mean my note 4 has I think a 3220mah battery and it charges very fast and just fine using 5v, so I'm perplexed on this design decision. Maybe the next version will fix this.

I watched Dunkey's video
and instantly wanted it. I won't get it though it would be irresponsible in my situation.

They were out of stock when my dad tried to get one, but I've seen somebody with one at my school, and it's pretty cool, and I want to get one when I can.

Heard the launch sucked but I do want to try out Zelda, Smash Bros, and Street Fighter II and whatever else they have. Not sure about the $40 price tag for a port of HD Remix but it could breathe some new life in the game and Nintendo desperately needs some fighters (and an apparent arcade stick for the console) and some third party exclusives. They did have TvC but no one really played it. Nintendo's crowd have always focused on the Nintendo games but they're all maturing now. Ryu was in Smash 4 even though all Nintendo got was SFIV on handheld and there were some SF games on SNES I guess.

The switch looks like a lot of fun. It is a good console to supplement the PS4 I have. I do not have the money to spend on the Switch yet, so I bought the Breath of the Wild for our WiiU. So far, I really enjoy the game play.

Yes, I'm buying one as soon as I can be bothered going to the store.

I'll be able to play the Binding of Isaac anywhere (my favourite game of all time).

And Zelda and stuff. Whatever.

hah, I rode a deer.
Couldn't tame it though. Runs away every time I'd get off. :(

I saw a bear too though. Wonder if I can ride it. Maybe it has a honey tracker.

have no time for it, still working on finishing bloodborne and dark souls 3
perhaps i will buy it next payment dunnoooo
big dilema
to save or to spend it all
i think it doesn't look like my type of game even if it looks fun as fuck
i mean, i thought the same when i first saw trailers and gameplays of skyrim
and then it was a big dissapointment when i played it
felt way too open for me and like, all the places the same after a while

Mate the gameplay and object interaction is on another level, it's not like anything else, it's so rich. If you shoot electric arrows in the water it fries the fish, if you walk around with metal you get struck by lightening, animal and enemy AI is awesome, they learn your moves and adapt, they pick up your weapons if u drop them. Look :
