So what'd you think of the Nintendo Switch presentation?

To be honest, I regret staying up for it (aired at 11PM for me), and the presentation was the traditional investor's style. I enjoy the Nintendo Directs much more, but it's understandable that Nintendo aimed to showcase the capabilities of the Switch (which didn't quite appeal to me).

My opinion? I'm worried for Nintendo. I get the whole casual gimmick vibe from it with the 1-2 Switch game. There is going to be paid online play in Fall, which I'm sure Splatoon players are more than willing to cough up. Mario Kart Deluxe is...well a nice port, but I don't feel very convinced to rebuy a game, same with Smash 4 if it gets ported and then it goes back to being paid online play. The battery life isn't a good sign either.

I really hope they do well, though it has potential. Super Mario Odyssey..... hmm well, it certainly was VERY impressive and had lively colors, and the part with New Donk City (lol) is fine, but annoys the heck out of me....is seeing normal humans.....come on, please don't pull a Sonic Adventures/2006. It really feels off seeing Mario run around with regular humans. Even the ones from the Sunshine beta were fine, but this...I dunno. Oh and Zelda? Unpopular opinion here, it doesn't interest me that much. The graphic seems very bland to me, but hey it's really the gameplay that should count!

My Zelda game was Phantom Hourglass/Wind Waker and I haven't since tried the new ones. I have to catch up playing Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, so then maybe I'll be hyped as well for Breath of the Wild. XD;;

So overall, I suppose I'm more on the unimpressed side of Nintendo.

Hey, great to hear from you again! I am a dummy! 

Long post ahead. Just a warning. I have quite a bit to say myself.

I didn't stay up for it. I had an 8am class the following morning, so it wouldn't have been a good idea. I just Googled recaps of the presentation when I got the time. 

I'm cautiously optimistic myself. I'm not blown away by the specs, but... idk, I don't really have a solid opinion on the system just yet. I'm a fan of Nintendo games and want it to succeed, but if the specs truly are awful, then I'm willing to accept that fact. But what matters more to me is if the games are fun.

The battery life doesn't seem that impressive for me, but I guess I'll see what I think of it if/when I eventually field test it myself. I'm not fond of the idea of paid online, but that seems to be a rather divisive topic anyway. It doesn't really affect me personally, since I never play online... cause we have crappy internet where I live. And because I'm a hermit who simply doesn't care for online multiplayer. Sweating a little... 

Of course it's a bit disappointing that the Switch won't be backwards-compatible, obviously due to the change to cartridges (which in itself I find interesting). I probably won't be getting any ports of Wii U games that I already have unless they offer something I can't refuse. Or if it just ends up working out for the better, space-wise, since having both consoles set up at once would be a hassle. Maybe if they port Pikmin 3 and Smash 4, I'll consider phasing out the Wii U, lol.

What really worries me is the (so far) revealed launch window games for the console. Launch day only brings us like 4 games, none of which are selling points for me, frankly. Not saying anything bad about Breath of the Wild, but I just never really got into Zelda. I've watched my brother play Twilight Princess on the Wii several years back, and I started Wind Waker on the GameCube, but school is starting to pick up, so it hasn't been a high priority. But I feel like BotW will be the game Nintendo is really depending on to pull the console through until more games come out. Which feels like a really risky move. But it may work out, since BotW looks like it could be a game that you could play for a long time. 1-2 Switch might be useful for learning how to use the console, but I'd rather not buy the console and only have 1 game to go with it.

Right now the only games revealed that I'm anticipating are Sonic Mania, Mario Kart 8 (if it has enough new content to be worth getting), Splatoon 2 (maybe; I recently bought the first Splatoon that I haven't gotten around to playing yet), and most of all, Super Mario Odyssey. That's the one that's really got my attention- and of course it's one that I'll have to wait the longest for. Yeah, the presence of normal-looking humans looks pretty weird, but I can look past it if the game is really fun. I did for other games, like Sonic Adventure. It reminds me a lot of Sunshine, and I freaking loved that game. As for the rest of the launch games, just... eh. Idk, I'm just not sold on them. But I may change my mind later.

And of course I'm disappointed by the lack of any mention of Pikmin 4. Assuming that game is still coming out at all, that is. Miyamoto mentioned Pikmin in December of last year, so I don't think it's been forgotten. But considering that in the past it's been described as "very close to completion," you'd think they would have something to show for it by now if it (and I'm assuming so) were coming out on the Switch. That sure would have gotten me excited for the console. And excited in general, lol.

Overall, I honestly don't think I'll be picking up a Switch at launch day. There just won't be any games that I'll want to play right out of the gate. Plus I guess it'll give me time to watch for feedback on the console. I can't say I'm extremely confident about it right now, but who knows what'll happen. Some people are speculating that it'll be like the original 3DS- slow, awkward launch, but explodes later. We'll see.

Impressive reply there~ :D 

I don't think I'll type as much but I sure enjoyed reading your thoughts. :) (never mind I wrote a lot…)

Smart move that you didn't stay up for it. :nod: I had to get up earlier than you (5:30) so that really crippled me haha. Other than Smash 4 and Kart I really don't play online with people. Since Nintendo drops off backwards compatibility, and is moving towards paid online it seems they are doing a fresh start of some sort. I do like how the Switch uses small cartridges instead of CDs. That is at least somewhat saving space.

Nintendo is certainly relying on Breath of the Wild, because they know it'll pull through for the masses, but yeah other than said game people will only have to wait one month to get Mario Kart if they want. 1-2 Switch should've been a built-in game for the console like Wii Sports, but they're going Nintendo Land on it instead (if I recall correctly. It was bundled with the Wii U Deluxe, but still, this time it is flat out paying for it separately).

I still haven't played Splatoon even though I've had it since launch. XD;; (those online kids will destroy this old n00b here) I never got around to playing it, and I am too intimidated to even try at this point. It's a stupid reason of mine.

About Pikmin 4, there is still doubt that it may actually be the 3DS game. Although I think they're entirely different.  There is a rumor that Pikmin 4 could actually be a reboot of the first game. I guess right now we can only hope it shows up at E3, haha. It may have been "close to completion," but according to the updates it took a backseat. And yeah, likewise. I would've been excited seeing something about it.

I got a console reserved just in case (preorders sell out too fast). amiibo taught me that. Speaking of amiibo, they raised the price of them by $3....and I felt $12.99 hurt my budget. Now I'm even more inclined to wait until they hit bargain bin, unless it's something I really want. If they make a Pikmin amiibo, I'll get them for sure, but don't pull a $16 price tag for a single Pikmin.....I'd probably still buy but that's eye gouging!

Even though I'll get the system, I got no game for it haha. I doubt they would undersupply Zelda. I'm not hot on playing it right now, but I find it funny that I'm game-less on the Switch, lol. We'll see.
