In the middle of the console drought, where multiple sites were claiming stock to return in May, June or even as late as August, I found and got a console from a retailer the other day. I've considered the console for a long time now, and many discussions with friends have gotten me to put off buying the thing as much as possible. Well, stock played a key role, and seeing what was the only one on a restocking trolley with other things (like the Xbox One S), more or less made me think that if I was to get one for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, then that might be the better time. I have to say that I'm more or less waiting until Friday (Mario Kart) before I get a proper game onto the thing, and that could be seen as a mistake (if it were not for the dismal stock numbers everywhere). I've bought Fast RMX, which is interesting to say the least and I've downloaded the demo for PuyoPuyo Tetris (since that will also release next week). I've not unboxed the dock yet (I kind of don't want to for a mix of reasons, plus I might do so at a later time for other reasons), and I've not gotten any extras. I like the console in terms of how it is as a product. I'm not happy about the plastic screen (why not glass like on smartphones/tablets?), but the package certainly is suitable for what I've seen. Games wise, it's meagre. The only things that are out for the thing are games I can buy on PC (or in one case, I already have on PC), JRPGs, Zelda and Konami's Bomberman. None of them really speak to me on any level, which is why I skipped the thing on launch. The Joy-Cons are weird. I've decided to play it safe with them and not use the straps (unless something prompts me to do otherwise), and I've followed some advice to stop the release of the things from sheering off (or wearing down) out of paranoia that the thing isn't built the best. Hardware fears aside, I'm looking forward to the games coming out this year, although that'd be Mario Kart, Splatoon and the Super Mario game. As mentioned before, I'm skipping games on the Switch which are not exclusive since I use the PC as my main platform, and so many games are on PC right now, and I might as well use the more powerful machine. I'm hoping that more games which we're wanting, like another Smash, Pikmin and so on do come out in the years to come. I skipped on the Wii U, mostly as I had sort of moved onto other platforms at the time, but the 3DS showed me that there were still good games coming out of Nintendo, and I think it's time to get back into the Nintendo main line consoles since recent IPs have really improved the lineup they have. Also, while we're at it, my friend code is SW-7425-8286-8404. As more online multiplayer games do get released, I'm sure this code will be as important, though I do find that friend codes are something Nintendo should have dumped a long time ago.
