That Nintendo Thingy. The Switchamacallit.
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:56:45 pm »
Hello friends. It is time I reveal a very carefully hidden, shameful secret. I am very excited about the Nintendo Switch~

I figured there might be some more people that're excited for it too! And that maybe it'd be cool to have a place to discuss it, and to add, like, friend codes and stuff, so people can be friends and stuff.

Anyway...

Neon or Grey?

Originally wanted the grey a lot more, since it matches the system and I dislike the idea of the two joycon being different. But over time I've grown to appreciate the neon about as much. Still, the OCD in my brain would be pleased to get grey.

...all inferior to how awesome a pure white system would be though. Gonna have a white monitor, keyboard, mouse, tower, 3DS, headphones, and controller. And then a Grey Switch.

Nice.|Jynx: Yandere Duke scares me... A lot.|Deeox2: Hey. It ain't lewd. I'm just waiting for Duke to kiss me|Elvis Strunk: Silly Duke. I am the woman, you are the penguin.

Grey. Hope the launch version doesn't have the sync problem reviews talked about, though.

Why can only the evil have empires, power and majestic theme music? I reclaim the possibility of creating the Federal-democratic-free Empire! A (democratic) tyranny fueled by the Power of Love!

Maybe the day 1 patch fixed it, or maybe the issue has been way overblown (not that these two options are mutually exclusive), but the only way I've been able to "reproduce" this sync issue so fact is by going to about 2 car lengths' distance from the Switch, squatting down while facing away from it, and basically surround as much of my body and limbs as possible around the left Joy-Con.

... I wrote it myself, but that description sounds more like somebody with a painful stomach ache bent over an Asian squat toilet. ;D

Perfect, I was bit worried. Have a pat for the great description too.

It does seem like a pretty fun game~ Honestly, it isn't my type of thing, really. I really love the idea behind open world games, but I always lose interest in stuff like Skyrim or Fallout before too long. But I've continued to enjoy Breath of the Wild the entire time I've played it so far, and I think that'll continue~

even if I absolutely suck at it~

It's also my second Zelda game ever, after Link's Awakening. So it might have been a bit of a strange transition~

also grey joycon best joycon. because it is my joycon.

Just finished participating in the second hour of the Splatoon 2 Testfire event, my biggest reaction:
DAMN YOU MUSCLE MEMORY!!!
Spoiler
(Kept hitting X to jump, when that just causes the map to pop open, instead of pressing B.)

Which brings me to my second reaction:
It's also more troublesome to quick jump now, since instead of just tapping the Wii U Gamepad touchscreen for who you want to jump to, you need to 1) open the map, 2) press direction for who you want to jump to, 3) press A. This change probably also guarantees that it's impossible to implement Squid Beakons.

Otherwise:
Loving the new maps and weapons, and the adjustments for returning weapons.
