Nintendo Switch – First Thoughts

After watching the Nintendo Switch presentation, here are my first thoughts about it.

In less than 2 months time I will be able to play this new console is amazing. Some of the announced games look very promising as well. With a price tag of $299.99, it is an affordable option for what it is promising to do.

One thing that I am curious to learn more about is the paid online service they are bringing out. The free games and more online features, can’t really complain about anything there. The 2.5 to 6 hours battery life away from home is fine with me. I don’t see myself being away from power longer than that time frame. For portable gaming, I can continue to use my Ninitendo 3DS.

Games I am looking forward to:

  • Splatoon 2 – Summer release date

The original Splatoon game was a great game. I am looking forward to new gameplay for this series.

  • Super Mario Odyssey – Holiday 2017 release

Can’t really complain about a new Mario game.

  • Sonic Mania – Q2 2017

Sonic games are great.

  • Puyo Puyo Tetris

My family has a weird fasnication with Tetris. We used to play games against each other all the time on So I am curious about this game.

  • Super Bomberman-R

I have some good memories of playing some of the older Bomberman games, so this game looks very intriguing.

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

I am a little conflicted on whether or not to buy this game. I have Mario Kart 8 and all the DLCs for the WiiU. Some of the new features look nice like the new characters and new maps, but I am unsure whether I want to rebuy the game just for that new stuff.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This game visually looks amazing. Zelda games never disappoint either.
