My plan is to buy it and just see how it compares. You can always return.Hm, I'm having second thoughts about the display size. I watched a few videos on my phone (S8+), which displays 16:9 videos with 5.5 inch diagonally. And while 2D games seem fine, stuff like Zelda: Breath of the Wild seems a bit small tbh (and not just the text).
Not at most US retailers. Dunno about other countries, but in the US, most retailers won't accept returns on opened games or consoles, but accessories are typically returnable (controllers, headsets, etc)
This is just about perfect except for the lack of a USB C pass through. The Bionik is another solution but just clunky in comparison.
Oh well, I kind of did that today, lol. Bought the new Switch on a whim, and while I mostly liked it... I couldn't get over those "D-pad" buttons. Maybe something was faulty with my unit, because the buttons made these really loud CLICK noises when I pressed them. It was sooo distracting. That's why I returned it after only 2 hours. I really hope the Switch Lite D-pad is better than this.
I might be mistaken but wont Mario Party be incompattible with a switch lite if the user doesn't atleast buy seperate joy cons? It's an incredibly weird game to advertise here. Could've easily used smash bros instead.
I just watched the ad and they only show footage of SMP while in docked mode so I don't think it's an issue
The buttons are real buttons, not D-pad style rubber + circuit board. The Lite has that instead of real buttons and the first reviews stated the buttons feel mushier, think Pro Controller vs JoyCon.
should be fine, do you know which colour he is getting? Turquoise seems to be the most popular colour so if any was to have stock issues, it would be that one.
Turquoise yeah, but it does kind of seem like that's the one they'll be shipping the most of.
What types of games do you like? If you like SRPGs Mario + Rabbids is a must play
In terms of exclusives you are probably looking at
Ok cool I will check all of those out. Thank youIn terms of exclusives you are probably looking at
Fire Emblem, Mario + Rabbids
Maybe Pokken, ARMS or Mario Tennis. All are good fighting games but you should try before you buy.
Essential: Mario Maker 2 and Donkey Kong Country Returns Tropical Freeze,
Worth you time: Too many to count Nintendo loves pushing out 2D platformers to fill lineup holes. Plus indies plus SNES online
In terms of when to buy what. I’d start with Smash and Mario Maker (I prefer DK but MM with online is too much variety not to recommend getting first)
Mario + Rabbids is a Ubisoft game and regularly gets heavily discounted so get the gold edition when it’s 50-70% off.
Mario Tennis added specials, an energy meter and a knockout mechanic into its base gameplay. It’s more fighting game then Tennis (although it does have traditional tennis mode and a Wii Waggle mode for those that want it)
The Switch that you take everywhere should be the primary, so you can play offline. Any other additional Switch (like the one that never leaves the house) becomes secondary as it would need an active online connection.
The counterpoint to this is if you have people with distinct accounts, but only one account buys the digital games (like a family). The "home" console is probably the shared one and needs to be primary so people can play with their own accounts. I'm debating this right now.
Nice I liked both, but the first one was great. Nintendo is killing it with the Switch marketing. I don’t know wtf they were thinking with the Wii U and it’s messaging. It’s a night and day difference.
In that case I'd just create a hotspot through a smartphone to pass the online check while on the go.The counterpoint to this is if you have people with distinct accounts, but only one account buys the digital games (like a family).
