    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.

    I would be surprised if you can't answer your phone via the switch. You'll probably be able to WhatsApp on it if Facebook will allow it

    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.
