Waiting for switch to arrive, help me get HYPED!


#1

My nintendo switch should be arriving within the next week and I’m beyond excited! What are you loving and hating from the switch?

Side note I might get a skin for it (i know the damage) and plan on leaving it on as long as i can!


Anyone with a Nintendo Switch?
#2

What is the retail price of the Nintendo Switch in the US?


#3

I’ve heard getting a skin is not a good idea because of the plastic they used for the switch. Getting a case would be better. Also HYPE! I’ve trashed talked the system since launch but I will admit Zelda looks fantastic and I’m sure you’ll have fun with it. Grab yourself a nice power bank as well.


#4

The retail pricing is $300 for both of the options on the consoles. Though some people like to add in a Pro Controller as the Joy Cons are not everyone’s preference.

Side note I heard you can use a keyboard on the Switch, anyone who owns one is this true???


#5

I haven’t heard of anyone using a keyboard lol and with the skins I’m not worried because I wouldn’t be taking them off.


#6

Thanks for the price Matt :smiley_cat:

The Switch feels very NON Nintendo, and I mean that in a good way. Simple UI, CLEAN UI, fast and responsive. Yet, there are little easter eggs and things that only Nintendo would do. Eshop is obviously limited right now, but a new Blaster Master was added, I’m pleased. Downloads have been quick, no bugs I’ve noticed. I have small hands, I think the Joycons are pretty comfy, the pro controller is where its at though. While it sucks to have a smaller launch line up, they have games coming out throughout the year which is great. (Unlike the typical console launch which has good launch and nothing for 8 months, or the Wii U that never took off. )

Im liking it alot so far.

While I don’t think its wide spread as much as its claimed hope this doesn’t happen to you.

Also watch out for that dock, it plays rough with the plastic screen


#9

I have heard of people using keyboards with the Switch hooked up through the dock, I was just curious if this is just for the System UI or if you could actually use a keyboard lol.

Will be interesting to see how you like it, some pretty mixed feelings about it out there
