Whether or not I play Pokemon Go on my commute is the difference between my phone dying by lunch time, or the middle of the afternoon.

のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Captain Syrup is a pirate from the Wario franchise.

Syrup the Witch is from Legend of Zelda. Has a habit of giving you magic powder.

Three hundred bucks? Shit, that's not even a good enough price to make the Wii U drop down to a good enough price for me to buy.

So, the only title they announced that's coming March 3rd is 1-2 Switch? Which is a separate purchase, not even a pack-in? And they're being distressingly coy about Zelda's date? That's disheartening.

Ah, you're correct, I saw them being coy and dancing around the subject a bunch, repeatedly refusing to give a release date, and then missed the literal last second unvoiced toss-in at the very end of the entire thing. My mistake. So they have two launch titles.

The fuck is this nonsense?

Super Mario Bros. 2006!

I would not be surprised if Nintendo throws references to the Mario movie into Odyssey because this kind of setting seems like the optimal place to do it.

And $50 for a single JoyCon, $80 for 2. That...seems like a lot of money.

If they make one with an actual not-four-discrete-buttons D-pad, I hope it's less.

I mean, I remember the price of the N64's controllers being a huge jump from what we'd come to expect (and you needed twice as many of them). But $80 is a lot even in a world where we're used to paying $50-$60. And you can tell me it's $80 for two controllers all you want, but I am extremely skeptical at the prospect of playing a game with a tiny controller-half held sideways for any length of time.

Did I say "any length of time"? Because apparently I meant about 3 hours before the battery dies. (No wonder they kept saying it's not intended to replace the 3DS.)

USG's headline is This Was Pretty Much the Switch's Worst Case Scenario. I don't know that I'd go that far, unless games wind up costing $80 apiece, but it's pretty bad. Like, not even wait-for-a-price-drop bad, but wait-for-a-hardware-refresh bad.

I'm betting they can still restrict supply enough that the thing will sell out and build some hype (because it would be fucking embarrassing if these were sitting on the shelves and you still couldn't get an NES Mini). I do not actually want Nintendo to fail.

But come the fuck on. Three hundred dollars, a battery life of 3 hours, and 3 launch titles? Sometimes 3 is not a magic number, guys.

I know it's tough to put a console out. I know there are a whole lot of people working on it, and a lot of places where things might not go exactly right. But we're in "How does this happen?" territory, and the obvious answer is "lol nintendo."

A hybrid console/handheld is a swell idea, but this is neither fish nor fowl; it's too underpowered to compete as a console, its battery life is too poor for it to be a decent handheld, its price point puts it in a place where they'd better hope nobody notices that for $50 more they could just buy a PS4 and a 2DS (if only they could find a damn 2DS), and it has only three games.

What the fuck, Nintendo? You've been in this game longer than any of your competitors. How do you keep doing this?

None of which matters because you already can't buy one anyway.

Personally, 300 bucks for the console seems fine to me. You didn't expect a console with a built in screen to be two hundred, did you? Controllers seem a bit steep though.

Apparently the Switch ships with 32gb of hard drive space, minus OS. The Zelda installation will take up about 50% of your free space.

This is expandable with microSD but still, damn.
