Default Nintendo Switch discussion

We've passed the 2 weeks mark to launch and since I see others here that's going to buy Nintendo's new console, Nintendo Switch, I thought it fit to make this thread to discuss the new console coming our way and maybe play some games together once it's released (And when online games are released).

I'll kick start the discussion with a question. Are you going to get the console at launch?

Not at launch, even if I had the money. The only game I'm interested in that is meant to be coming out for it (last I checked) is Pokemon Stars at the moment. It's not a priority right now though.

really? Take it you're a bigger fan of Nintendo's handhelds then?

There's many I'm excited for. Breath of the Wild (Which I've already bought), 1. 2. SWITCH, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 all coming this year :D

I'm not really much of a gamer tbh, though there are plenty of games I'd like to try. Again, not a priority right now.

I've only kept my Wii-U for Breath of the Wild, and have a $20 down payment for my pre-order of it. As for the Switch, so far only Mario Oddysee is the only one I'm interested in. So I'll wait on it. My main new console priority is that gorgeous PS4 VR.

I might get it eventually, but for now I'll just wait a little and see if Nintendo comes with a bigger line-up than on the Wii U.. Breath of the Wild looks amazing though.

They already have a better release year line-up than Wii-U :P In Wii-U we didn't get any new Zelda titles (Only remasters), no new 3D Mario besides 3D World (Which we all agree doesn't count) and not even a Mario Kart until the 2nd year of the console! That's the main reason it failed. Switch have a new Zelda title on launch and Splatoon 2 (Splatoon was the first successful title of Wii-u so it's fair), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odysee all in the same year! They've also announced new Pikmin and Fire Emblem (I think) which is yet to have a release year. That together with some already 3rd party titles and the party games using the new features (1, 2, SWITCH! and Arms) make Switch a far better launch model than Wii-U.

I see huge potential in this :D Also, I've been gaming Breath of the Wild all weekend and isn't even half way done. The game is on the size of Skyrim and Dragon Age! It's MASSIVE!
