Yeah ive been down on the Switch lately. This drug me back in. Yoshi is going to be fun, i never finished LA so that will be cool. Mario Maker 2 looks really good.
Tetris Blackcz really? What is this 1989? I get that you dig retro gaming but the shit you guys get oh so excited for on the Switch just honestly makes me chuckle and eyeroll. Like you're having to convince yourself you didn't waste money on yet another underwhelming Nintendo product.

It actually does believe it or not, Personally I just don't get it. Perhaps if people would stp making excuses for the shit Nintendo does, they'd be forced to move forward rather than be stuck in the past.

I... don't know. I'm not a Nintendo hater, but... there were very few new properties there. Most of those were minor sequels or ports, including ports of old games. I stopped getting excited about ports of old games after the 25th time they did it.

Remastering a game from 1990s that you can't play any more? Good.

Remastering a game from only 6 years ago that still runs perfectly fine? Cash grab.

I have a switch and I got Diablo III on it. Even though it's portable (the main selling point), it's horrible with a controller after playing it with mouse/keyboard. That's basically my experience with the Switch in a nutshell. Sounds great on paper, sucks in practice.

And the Mario games just do not do it for me. If you like the Mario games, don't stop playing them because eventually you will see them as childish. Take me for instance. I used to be able to play with with my Star Wars action figures all day long when I was younger. Now, 2-3 hours tops and I'm bored.

As usual you spew out bile and venom but no real substance. Portability is a value proposition for LOTS of people. Portability doesn't just mean taking it on the bus it also means the ability to sit with your family in the living room and play a game while they watch TV. You may not do this but it is utterly foolish to claim that this is not something people want and enjoy.

Also the products are not inferior, this is your heavily biased opinion on a product you clearly want to hate despite never actually using. I bought Dead Cells last summer on Switch, played a good 40 hours on it on the TV over the course of a couple of weeks and then took my kid on holiday. He was in bed by 9:00pm and I had to stay with him so i would fire up the switch and play dead cells some more in the hotel room while drinking some wine, I loved it! The PC & PS4 versions cannot offer me that, please explain how this is an 'inferior product'...

Also your frequent claim that people are zealots is just stupid, it also mirrors your pathetic habit of calling someone a 'progressive' the second they say something you don't like. I play PS4 more than my Switch. I've been a gamer for 35 years and owned almost every console ever made. I'm open minded and just enjoy games regardless of platform. Put simply you are almost always wrong...and stupid. Oh and please don't forget - EVERYONE HATES YOU HERE.

Hey, I'm cautious! I love Nintendo IP but I'm still not buying their consoles unless I can justify it. I'm a fanboy, but not a blind one.

You didn't see the new platinum games IP? A new fire emblem game is coming as well. Daemon x machina too. There's plenty of new material on the switch imo. Doubly so if you skipped the Wiiu. A mainline animal crossing game is coming, along with bayonetta 3 and eventually Metroid Prime 4. Those are just some of the things we know about. I have a pretty large steam library - I'd trade most of it in for Nintendo's library.

Yah I don't know how anyone could call us zealots. I'm critical as hell on Nintendo's missteps, i play PC games more than anything, and even as a big fan of Nintendo IP on the whole, I don't rush out blindly and buy their consoles. I literally just bought the switch today for $%& sakes!

What in the flying fuck?

This whole time you have been defending games you aren't even actively playing? Why buy a Switch now when there is talk of a revamp. You waited this long, might as well wait to get the new one most likely dropping late this year. Nothing great coming out anyhow.

I've played them. I borrowed a Switch from a friend/coworker for quite a long time. I've beat Botw and odyssey and played a bunch more. But I owned a wiiu so I needed more than wiiu remasters to buy the console.

The revamp talks are pure rumor at this point. I know it's going to happen eventually but there are switch games I want to play now and this summer. Too many good games dropping in the summer to miss. When the revamp comes, I'll trade in my version of sell it to fund a good chunk of the cost of the revamped model.

I've played the switch to death. But I generally think long and hard (that's what she said) before investing in a console platform

I'd gladly trade somebody, I regret getting the Switch with the Blue/Red joycons. When I take it to work it looks like a toy instead of a piece of tech, which it is.

I always kind of regretted getting the black GameCube back in the day. But I wanted it to look like tech and not a toy (it's both really.) I kept that in mind when I got the Switch and went with the red and blue. I think it would look better if they were both red or both blue though. I like the greenish yellow ones too. I wish they would do a spice version of the joycons.

I think the orange cons would look great with the black Switch.


Edit: Someone already did a custom one and I like it.

If one doesn't care for Nintendo IP and doesn't want lesser ports of 3rd party games at the same price there is zero reason to want the piece of shit. Deal with it.

*watching spec compare mobile gaming to playing a portable version of Diablo 3, DOOM, and others*

LOL

You should go play games with Terran. He loves mobile games. Little candy crush. You got all you need!

LOL. Spent the evening with my family and then played a bunch of Path of Exile. That's a PC game, big boy! Man, 3.5 really mixed things up, and ALL in a good way. So sad they sold out to Tencent. Still, great game. LOVE IT.

So Patrick, why don't you let your testicles descend and kick yourself in the nuts for dragging me into your little bitchfest about Nintendo critics, eh? I'm not interested in your little circle jerk of stupidz, lol.
