The controllers can be used in four ways: attached to the Switch Console via the side rails, removed and used separately by a single player in each hand (similarly to a Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller), attached to a frame called the Joy-Con Grip to provide a gamepad form factor or used as individual controllers for two players. A single Switch console can support up to eight Joy-Con connections.

    I preordered mine at target and already requested the day off. I'm so excited.

    Target needs to make up its mind on what it wants to do with my money though. First they charged me, then refunded me, and then charged me again today. Its making budgeting hard and annoying.

    I'm on the fence about it. It's made by the same developers who made Trine (which I don't like) so I'm hesitant

    Do you know if it has a story mode? That's kind of the one thing holding me back from getting it. If it's just multiplayer I don't want it.

    Probably should add that space to save games can be added upon using SDXC cards of up to 2TB. Probably also mention that the system is not region coded.

    I want to believe, but my hype went to zero with the Konami logo at the end, though.

    Not sure what to expect from a new game. On the one hand, Super Bomberman 2 was a huge favorite of mine and the multiplayer game could be easily made awesome by each player having their own screen and the stages being bigger than a single screen. On the other, I feel Bomberman 64 went underappreciated and working on that base we could have the series fully doing the 3D transition.

    I looked at more screen shots and it's just a giant carrying care I think. It's hard to tell. I have it preordered and I hope it's a messenger bag otherwise I'm not getting it. http://m.gamestop.com/product/accessories/nintendo-switch-game-traveler-deluxe-system-travel-case/141878

    Probably should give heads up on the app that's going to be used with smartphones for online lobbies, match making, and voice chat. Still don't know full details yet but here's the link on their website for what's been said so far.

    BTW, it has been killing me: does the Switch has a Ethernet port either on the tablet or the home device for the TV connection?

    I could understand not trying to ram it on a size compromised tablet, but the home device? That's preposterous. Even games like Splatoon 2 or Arms must be banking on a quality connection.

    In case it is true (and quite sad), are there plans to sell a peripherial for a wired connection?

    The Switch does not have an ethernet port and but you can purchase a lan adapter if you want a wired connection.





    Speaking of Splatoon 2, updates are rolling out on the Squid Research website
    http://splatoonus.tumblr.com/

    apparently the special weapon called 'Splashdown' that has the squidkid doing a super hero landing and sending ink in a blast radius can be performed in mid super jump. Sooo...if you're on the other side of the map and notice that one of your guys is in trouble you can pretty much pull a 'SURPRISE MOTHAH FUCKAH!' on everyone in the surrounding area.

    I'll agree that when you got a stable connection yeah, but with the LAN adapter I noticed way fewer dropped games. Also playing people in Japan felt a bit better.

    Install sizes for current gen hover around 50 gb anyway I'm not sure if i'd rather have a case full of cartridges or sd cards Cartridges would sound cool but at the same time buying digital gives me the insurance that should anything happen to the physical media I have it stored on I still have the license.

    With Zelda prolly being the biggest game at 16 gbs prolly not. You may need more than one but they should suffice. Biggest size I've found was 256gb but that was close to 200 bucks.. I'll wait until the market catches up with the format.

    More than likely when it comes to space for physical games you will have to worry more with 3rd party games. Nintendo seem to be wizards when it comes to optimization. Im more than lukely gonna go for a 256 or whatever the highest i can get starting out. Probably should last for a good while and then when i start running out ill see whats good around cyber monday/black friday of that year.

    They are game cards, actually. I'm not sure, correct me if I'm wrong, but they seem to be about the same size as DS/3DS game cards, so if you have any of those card cases lying around, you could probably make use of those.

    Yeah I figured as much they wouldn't take up as much physical space I think I'm going to buy physical games for games I might end up selling and digital for the games that I know I want forever except Zelda Because I want that case.
