Scalping is evil
Whoops. Some disgruntled dev has leaked the SDK. They must be Mad....
Some nice and fancy joycons
$200 though :bang:
Those are awesome, but not $200 awesome. Greedy bastards.
Is the Nintendo Glitch still a thing?
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.
Just got a Switch with Zelda and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
So much fun.
I maybe getting a switch a lot sooner than I anticipated. I maybe getting one on October 27th because that is when Mario Odyssey is being released.
ARMS is fantastic too! :banana:
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-
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)
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. :wanker:
I tried the global test punch, wasn't that into it. Not at full price anyway!
Anyone try the splatoon 2 one day, 4 hour demo (gotta love Nintendo lol)? Wondering how it compares to the original?
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.
