Sooooo... who has purchased the Switch and what are their thoughts on it
I am considering this just to play MK8 alone but need to know if there is anything else decent on the horizon.
The Switch is pretty good, there are quite a few decent games for it, but I rarely use it.
From my experience
MK8 - It's Mario Kart 8 so whats not to like? I've played maybe 4 of the cups since launch in April
Zelda - Is alright, I've not finished it, I bought the Season Pass a few months back to try and get me reinvested in it played for about a week and have not been back to it since.
Snipper Clips - Good fun at first, until you get into an argument with your other half, the puzzles are repetitive. Not played since launch.
Puyo Puyo Tetris - Is excellent played it every night for a couple of weeks, not gone back since.
Mario V Rabbids - Very nice looking game, basically a simplified, this doesn't mean easier, XCOM. Played a lot the first 2 days. Not been back since.
There's a bit of a running theme here, this isn't necessarily the fault of the Switch though, just if I'm at home wanting to play a game it's almost always going to be the Xbox I go to, I have the same issue with the PS4, and I'm almost never in a situation where I am out of the house and can or want to play games.
There are a few games I am tempted like Cave Story, Binding of Issac, Sine Mora and some others, but I either own them on other platforms or I can get them elsewhere for about £3. I would love to play Doom or Wolfenstien on the Switch but I've already 100%ed them on the Xbox so why would I spend another £40 same thing with Skyrim.
I'm excited for Mario and possibly Monster Hunter XX, depending on if it gets a UK release and what Monster Hunter World ends up being, and I'll probably get loads of use out of it when I'm on holiday, but for me day to day its a bit of a novelty. I accept other people might see the whole thing differently.
This ended up longer than I expected and I am pretty sure John is quite serious about Stardew Valley
