Seems like the Joycon grip thing is just a piece of plastic, but you can also purchase a transparent, bound to show finger prints version that can charge your Joycons while playing (presumably through a cable)

I placed my pre-order at a place that doesn't ask for a predeposit.  Still not sure if I'll want one day one, but it would be sweet to take Zelda with me when we leave for our skiing vacation the 4th.

I decided to pop in line at the Gamestop to pre-order though I'm not sure if I'll go through with the purchase.  I have to say when I look at these people I'm a little embarrassed to be here with them.  They're having conversations about memes....

There's two conversations going on. One is a guy trying to challenge everyone in line to come up with a bad game made by Blizzard. That spawned from a conversation about Overwatch being the game of the year.

Then there's another one about No Man Sky and the guy who started it can't go three syllables without saying "fuck."

Okay, conversation has switched to Sonic... Mr. Fuck is now insisting that Sonic 4 was the best game since the GBA ones.

4chan leak

>Has Been Heroes - Indie viking style action game. Being developed by Frozenbyte (Shadwen, Nine Parchments).


> Fast RMX - Fast Racing NEO redone on Switch with new content.


> Snipperclips - Small title that uses the two joycons for two players. That's all I know.


> Splatoon 2 - It's a sequel, not just a port.


> Super Bomberman R - Surprise!


> Arms - Fantasy fighting game. All characters are themed and have long arms with different powers/effects. Art style very reminiscent of The Wonderful 101, may be developed by Platinum Games.


> Disgaea 5 Complete - Original game with all DLC


> Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers - Port with new content.


> Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Port with new content.


> Super Mario Odyssey - New 3D Mario title. Logo has a plane in it, implying a new flight mechanic.


> Zelda BoTW


> Just Dance 2017


> Skylanders Imaginators


> 1 2 Switch - The Switch's minigame compilation, showcasing the tech. Games include (don't know exact names) Samurai Training, Wild West Shootout, Crack the safe, milk, ball catch and copy the beat.

This is still the biggest megaton for me. 4chan rumour is right?? Fucking hell.

That movie was so depressing.

SupremeAC said:

Lol @ ubisoft?  Come on, they at least tried by porting Steep.  I'm seriously considering getting that at or close to launch.

Steep is just behind these other Ubisoft games in terms of trash they are bringing to Switch:

  • Just Dance
  • Rayman Legends
SupremeAC said:

For fucks sake, now gamemania has listed it as being €330.  I don't think I'll buy this at launch at that price.  That's €80 more than I would have been comfortable about.

I just read this about Wii U in the UK:

The cheaper model is being sold for £250 in the UK. It does not include an infrared sensor bar or nunchuck controller. Customers who did not buy these along with the original edition of the Wii will have to purchase them separately with the exception of the US where a sensor bar is included.

The premium edition is being sold for £300, has 32GB of storage, a sensor bar and the firm's new Nintendo Land game.

So it's actually cheaper than the Wii U was here. Crazy. Although no Nintendoland.

Just saw the arms trailer. Ehhhhhhhhh.

I'll keep an open mind, as Splatoon didn't look great when I first saw it. I'm not really interested in these one on one games though.

Huh, seems you can get a top for the joycons when used independently. Makes them bigger and easier to hold.
