My Easter Basket 2017

Yoshi egg theme this year. I wasn't expecting a console at all, so I was surprised to get a Nintendo Switch. I also got a bunch of Nintendo swag, like an item box lamp that makes coin sounds when you turn it on and off.





I made the other half a kitty basket, with a pair of those light up cat ears head phones, a bunch of giraffe stuff and a Betsey Johnson bag.



I appreciate getting the Switch, but I don't know what's really worth getting besides Breath of the Wild and Bomberman. The accessories (like the larger controller and additional dock) are crazy expensive.

BotW is worth the price of admission alone, it's that good. Bomberman is average, obviously more fun if you have people to play locally, online is laggy. If you want something to play with the wife then Snipperclips is ace off the eShop. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Puyo Puyo Tetris comes out next week. Some other eShop games are good, too: Fast RMX, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, a bunch of Neo Geo games, Blaster Master Zero, Voez (touch screen rhythm game).

The Pro Controller is expensive but so worth it, IMO. Much more comfortable than the joycons.

Mario Kart 8 is a must (re)buy. Puyo Puyo Tetris I'll also pick up at some point.

I'very heard people saying good things aboit this Snipperclips game, but have no idea what it's about and can't be assed to look into it.

I suppose I'll have to look into some of these eShop games.

I need to finish BOTW, i have unlocked all 4 guys, now I just need to go take down ganon, just haven't been motivated to turn it on....maybe tonight.

I'm 90% sure I'm going to sell it after I beat it. Just not a fan of any of the games, I figure I can it again this fall when mario comes out.

...this plus Mr. Shifty, The Binding of Issac, I Am Setsuna, Has Been Heroes, Graceful Explosion Machine, and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap are worth checking out imo.
