Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

This is what I wanted. I can actually use a regular controller this time for everything, even settings and whatnot.

Thank you, Nintendo. I will buy this DAY ONE.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

Also,more things to think about:

The switch allows devs like Bethesda and a franchise like Skyrim to reach the handheld gaming market,which is a big incentive to support Nintendo this time. The Wii U wasn't because the "reach" of the gamepad is shit and it was just another home console. Did nothing for them either way.

Power might me an issue for latest console games,maybe not. (It will be for our non Pro PS4 too eventually anyway) but we're not restricted to N64 graphics like games on handhelds anymore. That's kind of the trade-off. Assassin's Creed/Call of Duty are some other exemple of franchises that tried to enter the handheld market but really didn't take off because of the gap between their home console and handheld counterpart. Now there is no gap. That is enticing if you're Ubisoft/Activision.

Honestly not impressed... it just feels more of the same Nintendo focusing on being cute and innovative instead of producing a purely great console.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

It's as easy as plugging in the charger in a local outlet if the case may be. If I can at least get 3 hours on that thing, I'll be good personally.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

at the library displayed.

No fucks to give about Splatoon 2 / Spla2n, although that could change if it has drastically fixed its predecessor's inexcusably brain-dead matchmaking.

No fucks to give about Skyrim.

No fucks to give about NBA 2K.

I'm lukewarm towards the new Mario Kart, since MK8 is probably the best overall installment in the series and it's gonna be tough as hell to top it. Only Breath of the Wild and the Super Mario 3D World sequel piqued my interest.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

I must be getting old, no way I would want this. All I see is just another thing to carry and charge. My phone is all I need when on the go. I'd love to see more Nintendo games that work on IOS/Android over this myself. I love Nintendo, grew up on SNES/N64 but this is just beyond me. I want the games, but I don't want this system.

Everyone i have seen hating this thing so far is doing the same. There is LITERALLY nothing that they have showed so far that is a clear fuck up or deserve a negative reaction.

It doesn't use a disc drive,it's using cartridge as shown in the trailer.
It absolutely is a gimmick console and its trying to be more than it needs to be. You can whine all you want and make straw man arguments, I simply do not care. It doesn't change that its a gimmicky console in the way they advertised the machine. They literally combined the Wii with the Wii U and made some enhancements . You can play games on the console itself without a TV because of the built in screen like the Wii U controller. The handles can break away into a nunchuck style controller or you can make them into 2 separate tiny controllers . Those are gimmicks. Most people aren't going to play the console the way they've advertised it so heavily . Had they just taken those bits out, and been a regular box it'd be fine . Just because you do something "different" doesn't mean its "advancing technology", they've been doing this type of stuff since the N64 . Look, I'm not saying that it can't be played like a regular console and a controller(which looks fine) but that doesn't negate the advertised purpose and design of portability. Overall, the way they are making this console seem, its underwhelming, had they just removed the whole "on the go" aspect, it'd have been better off because the gimmicks are just a waste. Even Forbes labelled it gimmicky.

You're right, the games seem to be on a cartridge similar to a 3ds , but can they fit a game like NBA 2k17 like they showed on the ad? That game on disc is like 50GB, I suppose we will see.

For me it's just gonna flat out depend on the games. I'm not buying it until I see a reason to buy it. For all I know this console will be dead in 3 years like the Wii U was.
The Switch has some major promise with its premise, I agree on the library being the key thing. That's what shot them in the foot blew off their feet with the Wii U.

But at SMM being a must-have.

Re: Nintendo SWITCH - Official Thread! Trailer released!

Even a new 3D World does not excite me really, like, at all. Don't get me wrong, I liked 3D World, but it just felt like more of the same.

I am just tired of the NSMB style and entire presentation (to me, 3D World is cut from the NSMB cloth). Give us the next step in the 64 --> Sunshine ----> Galaxy 1 & 2 timeline. We never got it on WiiU.

NSMB-styled stuff needs to die. They have been super lazy with Mario since 2010.
