My mini-review of the Switch after about a week with the system:  It’s brilliant.

- Mostly using it in portable mode. The screen is great, much better than the WiiU gamepad. It’s better than the Vita because it’s bigger with more resolution.
- Controls feel good, but not as good as a gamepad.
- Very easy to pick and play, working like a portable console. Switch off/on very fast.
- Putting it in docked mode and continuing the game on the big TV works great.
- I wish Persona 5 was available on it…


Now it just needs a lot more games. 3rd party probably won’t give it much support but EA better release a good Fifa for it if they are smart since the thing is selling like hot cakes for now…

Which games have you played on it so far and how do they look? Is it worth buying if you don’t care for the portability?

Only played Zelda. Also have Snipperclips but haven’t tried it. Zelda looks great, better than the WiiU. If not for the portability I don’t see any reason to get one unless you really want to play Zelda. I wasn’t thinking about getting one for now but it was a gift but I’m enjoying, mostly because it’s easier for me to play on the go.
Zelda is great so far, takes some stuff from Skyrim and AssCreed but gives it it’s own twist. Combat is no Dark Souls but it’s a lot more easier to die than recent Zelda games if you don’t prepare or pay attention.

Persona would be enough, would have put a lot more time into it if it was pick up and play.

Portable always sell well for Ninty and with a Zelda game, strong start was expected
However, time will tell if it can keep the pace up
I still think it will do better than wiiu atleast if they royally doesnt eff up
Mkart sellin good on switch explains why people never got it on Wiiu
Mobile

Ninty will gradually make DS followup with hardware able to run all Switch games, so in a way a portable and a semi portable…2 hardwares to dupe the world…one software 2 versions , like 3ds SbrosMelee and others

Thats the only way to win for Ninty, portable…mobile space Smile

Real fun will start when gamers will buy animal crossing and kirby like shit in dry spells
And it will sell because mobile

And as far as FIFA goes, who wants to play shit looking last gen FIFA on the move
I mean who plays Injustice2 on iOS??

A Fifa game that I can play on the go or hook up at TV, both with easy multiplayer? Seems like a good idea. Mario Kart seems to doing fine. But not if it’s just a bad version. I don’t think Nintendo ever had a portable console capable of running the recent Fifa games. Also it’s not comparable with iOS games since it’s not limited by terrible touch controls.
But not really expecting any decent 3rd party support since it’s still a Nintendo console.

Old gen wiiu remaster cant be a bad version, but maybe it can be zelda 20fps
FIFA based on PS4 scorpio is a different story
Smile

Ofcourse i meant graphics, otherwise you can still play FIFA on Vita if you want to play ps3 tier stuff Smile Switch is 360 tier, forget Xb1 quality on portable or docked
inb4 switch ver will have FIFA2018 features but 360 graphics defense

Smile

You can only be a ninty fanboy and defend to a certain point, unless you want to reveal your true identity Smile

And as far as this pic is concerned

Using a team that didn’t even make it past the quarter-finals for shameless Switch marketing, nintendo really is cheap!  Laughing

Life is Strange is getting a 2nd season.

Probably a new set of characters and location.

3 million sales of the 1st game. That’s cool.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Not going to be shown in this year’s E3, but still nice to know adventure games are becoming more mainstream Smile
