    Everything is clean and simple right now. Having a section just straight up for news is a pretty good idea. The fact that they have Xenoblade Chronicles 2 up there and they're already advertising it makes me happy.

    Played that clipper game with my son, had a blast. The joy cons are so small though, even he complained. I tried to show him how to hold it, like a snes/nes controller and he had the hardest time. I guess young kids have no frame of reference.

    Speaking of. The switch treats secondary accounts far better than PS4. Not having to constantly make sure Mics/vr or whatever is linked to the proper account just a simple " who wants to play this game" as soon as it loads is perfect.

    How big is the initial update. I need to make sure I have enough data before starting it. Also are there any free games up online. Our local importer only allowed one store and one online store to get stock. Then the store that I pre-ordered from got 8 consoles and 3 games. Of course my dumb ass went to work before going to pick it up, so I have nothing to play. And they have no date of when there will be stock.

    The update is really small, you should be fine.

    People at Gamefaqs say this system, outside of preorders, isn't really flying off shelves, and you should be able to walk into Walmart or most other stores and find at least one in most areas. Either Nintendo actually proved competent and provided adequate supplies, or everyone who was interested preordered. I want to wait until it maybe gets some design issues resolved (I hear the cradle scratches the screen), possibly a $50 price drop, and a decent fighting game. The HD SF2t re-tread ain't gonna cut it. And I hear next-gen systems have trouble running Xenoverse 2 without framerate issues and other problems...anyone see how this system won't have even worse issues?

    You know, I remember hearing about retailers that were going to be stocking more Switches beyond the Pre order amount to be able to sell to walk-ins post midnight launch. If thats the case, it sounds like to me that the retailers didnt really say much it about it. So now they probably have few Switches sitting around waiting to be picked up by people who thought the Switch was sold out everywhere since they werent able to pre-order it and might take a few days for those people to catch on.

    Is there a way to use my online profile on a friends switch system? Like say I want to play Super Bomberman R on a friends switch and just use my pro controller. Just need to confirm this. I know it just might be as simple as logging in.

    A detailed durability test for the Switch.

    The Switch's screen is plastic instead of glass like most cell phones and tablets. I do plan on bringing this thing while traveling so a screen protector is a must.

    Also the Joycons can be used with Windows, Mac, and Android devices.

    Gonna go see Logan tonight at the theatre. Bringing the Switch with me because I want something to do during those endless previews and commercials.

    When you turn on the Switch while it's docked, it automatically turns on your TV for you. It's a small thing, but I think it's neat.

    Damn. Internet is littered with defective switch reports.

    I knew nintendo was rushing this thing to market, so i figured game selection would be weak at first. But nintendo usually puts out high-quality hardware, that is reliable. Oh well :/

    Edit: Also these reports of the Switch being easily scratched by it's own dock, probably due to nintendo's decision to go with a plastic screen. And not gorilla glass or something else more appropriate for a portable device, like what tablets and Iphones have.

    I have had GBA with dead pixels and GCN died on me 6 months in. Faulty stuff happens. Has anyone seen a percentage of faulty Switches?

    We don't know what the actual percentage of faulty systems are to the ones that aren't but the ones that have been getting the faulty stuff have been pretty loud about it. We probably won't know until later.

    And people think I was wrong for shitting on Nintendo.
    Then I realized Nintendo hasn't built a good console in a long time. Wii U is a marketing and design disaster and the Wii game library was mostly shovelware.

    This does not even have that classic Nintendo durability that the Game boy, SNES, N64 and Game Cube had.
    You can drop a huge CRT TV on the N64 and it still works fine.

    The Switch breaks with normal operation.

    The switch would probably be $500+ if they used quality materials.

    I would pay for that if it had that, plus a battery that lasted at least 5 hours.

    I haven't had a single issue with my Switch. Haven't had my left Joy con desync, no screen scratches or freak outs. Pretty smooth sailing.

    I also haven't been playing it that much either and when I have played it I've been using the pro controller
