Considering how i'd never heard of it until right now i'm gonna say no.

I think part of the issue was, certain amount of launch consoles were broken, as with every launch of everything, and people affected by it went and posted this stuff and it just got upvoted and reported left right centre.

People with no issues aren't going to post and aren't a news story.

I've recently got a switch.

Got the usual Mario Kart and Zelda etc. I love it, can play on tv with the kids and portable to my self. I agree the lack of games sucks but it will get better.

I have Splatoon and Mario on pre order.

Didn't even realize that Odyssey was getting released that early. Hmm.... looks like i'm going to have a game-packed Fall this year. Splatoon 2, Destiny 2, Super Mario Odyssey..... whatever other neat games might be coming out that i've momentarily forgotten about..... mostly because Destiny 2 will probably be a total black hole of time for me...

Yeah I was checking Amazon one time and decided to check and see if there was a release date for the game.

So far I've bought-

Zelda
Mariokart
Mighty Gunvolt Burst
Graceful Explosion Machine
Shantae: Half Genie Hero
Bomberman (while it was on sale)
Shovel Knight (Regret this purchase, really feel it's completely over-rated)
Mr Shifty

More or less finished with these games, apart from the local multiplayer aspect. Looking forward to splatoon 2.

Not trying ARMS? Btw, i have pre ordered Splatoon 2 and get really excited for the single player campaign. I am wondering what happened to the Agent no 3 since we are playing as Agent number 4.

No idea, but, between me and my lad, we played the full 4hrs. It came down to me having to have a chat with my lad about choosing between ARMS or S2 last month and we came to the decision that it would be S2.

I think the only thing missing on the Switch vs Wii U version is that the Switch version is 1-player only (can't play with 2 players on 1 console).

Stories like these make me think having a kid would be fun. I like the idea of gaming with your boy. Good stuff. Glad you guys got a chance to play.

It is fun

Actually, last Thursday was sports day and my lad got a 1st in sprint and 2nd in egg n spoon race. I entered dads race at the end and got 3rd place, so, between us we got 1, 2 and 3 lol.

My lad takes after me, he's highly competitive and wants to beat me at every game lol. Connect 4 and matching pairs on ipad are 2 of our most competitive games outside of Nintendo and PC. We also play football and basketball and he's been boxing for 1yr and is going to a proper gym soon. Loads of ways to have fun with your kids tbh. It's a journey for both of us and I get to do it all again with his 3yr old brother lol.
