Day One got some good improvement, and the rest of the line up too. I hope it keeps up like that in the following years.

Well, that is definitely an improvement.

>Pokemon
Success guaranteed! Hopefully.

Like Palutena? That's interesting.

I still highly doubt the Pokémon game coming to Switch is Stars, let alone a main series entry, but I'm curious to see what it is nonetheless.

My guess is that it's a Pokkén Tournament port or a new spin-off. I feel they'll do at least one more main series game on the 3DS first.

new information about the console:

  • The online service will cost around $17.50 - $26.50 per year.
  • Nintendo is trying to bring VR on the Switch once they figure out how can a user play it for hours.

The low online price is a much better deal than expected but the games are still just a rental and it's absolutely laughable how some people on r/Nintendo are trying to claim it's a great deal because "remember when renting games from Blockbuster cost so much more???" and "well PS Plus games are just a rental too because if the membership expires the games lock!".

The price being lower is a major plus but don't sit here and act like a one month game rental is somehow superior to getting to keep full priced games as long as your membership keeps running (which it likely will forever since you'll want to play online).

EDIT: One of February's PS Plus games is LittleBigPlanet 3; a full retail AAA game that is valued at around $20, and I will get to keep it so long as my membership remains. It's not a 30 year old game that's worth pennies and will go away no matter what I do.

Pennies? You're overvaluing those games. Emulators are a thing. Nintendo's Virtual Console is nothing but a glorified emulator to begin with, so why pay to rent something when I can get essentially the exact same thing (although arguably better b/c I can play it with a Dualshock 4 with the right settings) for free?

Not advocating emulators, just saying Nintendo would do well to try a little harder with their perks.

tfw you're getting taxes cut heavily from your paychecks because of how well you're making tips and already get paid well, and blowing all my tips the next day after I get them so I became short in my Switch fund by $100 :-)

I'm debating on taking off my preorder for the Switch. One Zelda game on the Switch is not a good enough launch for me.
isaac343018s Emerald Sparx Gems: 4191
#317 Posted: 06:38:59 05/02/2017
Part of me wants to tell you you should so I could take your pre order (even though I know thats not how it works) but if you aren't driven by Zelda then honestly do. If youre one of the people who doesnt really like Zelda and is only getting BotW because its the only major launch title, then dont get it. I feel like youd be better off waiting for something else. If you wait until holiday, you'll have a lot more options.

Of course if you are a Zelda fan that changes things. Its a split for me too. If possible, go with the Wii U version. Better to drop 60 on a game than 300 plus that on a brand new system with very few games at launch.

If you dont care about Zelda but want a Switch anyway, Id again say, cancel the pre order. I think itd be better to just wait until later in the year when you have more things to get excited about.
AdamGregory03 Gold Sparx Gems: 2156
#318 Posted: 13:03:36 05/02/2017
Yeah, even though BotW looks like a good game, I've never been much of a Zelda person, so I'm waiting until later to get it. I'm more interested in Mario Odyssey, which is gonna be a holiday title.

Even if Breath of The Wild ends up being amazing, and even if you're a huge Zelda fan (Like myself), I still don't think a single game is enough to warrant purchasing a $300 console at launch.

I've got two tickets for me and my girlfriend to play the Switch at a London event on the 26th February. I probably won't play the launch titles there as I won't have long to wait until March 3rd but I'm looking forward to playing Splatoon 2!

Right. So as someone who isn't much of a Zelda fan I have no current interest in the Switch. I love me some Mario, but right now Odyssey isn't enough to sell me on the system like Ratchet & Clank 2016 sold me on the PS4. <.<

Yes, it does. But the one that comes with the console can't be used to charge the Joy-Cons. You have to buy another one for that.

How do the Joy Con charge from out of the box? I'm imagining it's having them in the system while it's charging?

Also, does the system charge when it's docked?

Not sure how the Joy-Cons charge with the Grip, I guess you connect a cable to the Dock?

The system charges when it's docked. You can put the Joy-Cons on the docked console to charge.

They don't charge with the included grip, unless you buy the charging grip.

Also, they confirmed VOEZ on the console, but only on Portable Mode, since it requires a touch screen.

I got kinda excited for that, since this opens the possibility to games that are exclusive to a certain mode, and that entire idea of a Pro Dock that makes the console as powerful as a PS4 to run ports of other games while on TV Mode seems more possible.

No one's going to get Disgaea 5? It's really one of those obscure gems, and one of the most unique strategy RPGs I've ever played. It will probably be even better with anything new they could add to it.

I heard it didn't do that well on the PS4, so I hope it does well on the Switch.

There's been some comparison videos out between the final Wii U version and the final Switch version and the general consensus is that the Wii U version is perfectly fine if you don't want a Switch any time soon. It goes up to a native 720p on Wii U, with some frame drops at times, and has slightly lower res shadows than the Switch version.

Should be noted that the Switch version runs at 900p native in docked mode, but still suffers all of the same frame drops as the Wii U version. However, in Handheld mode, it runs at 720p native, but with basically no frame drops.
