...I tried the Switch out last Friday and was pretty pleased with what I experienced. I hope the console does well, it seems pretty solid imo.

BotW is sooooo dope.

Baffling that Nintendo decided to use friend codes again though...

I'll post mine later

I got one Friday. I feel it has a lot of potential, Zelda might be a great all time caliber game. But I can't help Nintendo has some design issues going on... First issue is the analog sticks on the Joycons. They are awful, far too short to really feel like you have a good range of analog movement. The screen being plastic as a 300 dollar device unacceptable, and the Dock is scratching systems, and needs a redesign.

Yeah, the whole docking thing is a real mess. It's so odd because the actual tablet is such high quality and then the dock is a shitty piece of plastic. It's bewildering Nintendo would ship these things not knowing how easy it is to smudge and scratch the screen with them which makes me believe something got fucked during the mass production of them. Playing with separated joycons is cool at first but they are just way too small to play with comfortably. I know the Pro controller is $70 but damn is it a great controller. I'll never use the joycons again now that I have it. Another small gripe is I wish the screen size of the tablet was a bit bigger.

Interface wise it's super fast which is awesome considering how shit the Wii U was at launch, but it's also super bare bones. I honestly feel like people who buy the Switch at launch are beta testing this thing. The UI is snappy but it's missing that Nintendo charm. There's no music, no themes, no real sense of community like the Wii U since they got rid of Miiverse which was a huge mistake, IMO. It's mind boggling Nintendo went back to Friend Codes. Other people are critical there's no apps like Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, web browser, etc. but I couldn't care less about that stuff. I have 30 other devices that can do those things, it's an odd complaint, IMO. It's coming down the road anyway: http://www.theverge.com/2017/3/8/148...amazon-support

Overall, they have a solid foundation with this UI that I'm sure will be expanded as time goes on.

I'll send you a request Bizzy. I'm not sure if we both have to send it or not, but I guess we'll find out.

I have Bomberman and Fast RMX, which I think are the only two online games.

Fast is surprisingly fun. Some people are sayin it's better than some Fzero and Wipeout games, but I don't agree at all... doesn't have the same quality of level design, but I still think it's a lot of fun.

It's not online but I really like Blaster Master Zero. Feels like a true sequel to the original... plays pretty great.

What a garbage system. Nintendo's done with the console business. Chalk up another failure.

I've been sitting on the fence for a long time and have not purchased any new systems this generation even though I typically end up with all systems for each generation. I can ignore the Switch's lack of power. And as appealing as Nintendo's 1st party games are, I can't get over its lack of 3rd party support. I want to play Doom, Resident Evil 7, GTA, etc.

FC sharing is just one way this time at least.

I have both Bomberman and Fast RMX and they are okay. Bomberman is still fun with a bunch of people in local play but Konami really didn't give a shit about the game because it's so basic. Online play is very laggy with some terrible input delay. Definitely not worth $50. Fast RMX is a cool old school arcade racer but again the very short time I played online it seemed very laggy. Multiple times I was 1st but ended the race in 2nd because lag I assume. Lots of times I saw ships skipping across the track. I bought a LAN adapter so I have a wired connection too. This better improve because I'm not paying for online if it's as shoddy as this.

BotW is definitely the saving grace though. Easily the best launch title for a system since Mario 64.

...Konami has released a patch for Bomberman to resolve this issue.

...to be fair those problems aren't common. Nintendo has resolved the joycon issues and I would recommend a screen protector for any device w/a screen like that. There are some pretty solid tempered glass options available.
