  1. The cooking system is very awkward (including the way you have to hold ingredients and drop them into the pot). A Minecraft style pop-up window with known recipes that you can select and it automatically pulls the necessary ingredients from your inventory would've been nice. The breakable weapons was really shocking to me when I first started playing. I didn't realize that was in the game and I kind of got worried. Luckily, there's so many weapons being dropped, it's not really an issue.
  2. I liked the original Knack but it should've had the price point Knack 2 is releasing at ($40). Knack 2's gameplay looks much more varied and inventive.
  3. I bit the bullet and bought Ultra Street Fighter II. Playing a SFII game brings back a lot of good memories from the SNES days. I really like the newer graphics but I play with the retro sound. Unfortunately, you cannot switch the graphics/audio between the new and retro versions on the fly. Single player is definitely playable with a single JoyCon used sideways. I was able to finish the arcade mode twice so far on the default difficulty (normal). I haven't played against another player yet, but I think as long as you're playing someone also using a JoyCon (like a local match), it would be fine. If you're going against someone using a pro controller or something else with a proper d-pad (like those 8Bitdo NES30 Pro controllers), I think you'd be at a pretty big disadvantage. I haven't tried the 3D Way of the Hado mini-game (no real desire). Being able to change the colors on the characters is more fun than I expected (even if the interface to do it is kind of awkward). The included art gallery is really huge. I'll try play online at some point in the near future. Overall, at $40, the game is definitely overpriced. With a Best Buy Gamer's Club 20% off discount, it's not too bad but I think the game really should've been in the $20-25 range. One annoying thing this game has really highlighted with the JoyCons is the placement of the capture button on the left JoyCon is too close to the other buttons. When using the left JoyCon horizontally, I've already accidentally taken a few captures while playing SFII. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way to currently disable the capture feature.
  4. $20/year sounds reasonable to me. Anybody pick up Ultra Street Fighter II? Any thoughts? Is it playable with just the joycons?
  5. I took the straps off the joycon strap per this video: I have to say, I like using the joycons without the straps a lot better. The joycon straps also take up less room in my case (which can barely fit the Switch, straps, and a USB C cable).
  6. I downloaded the Disgaea 5 demo and gave it a go (I have never played any of the Disgaea games before). It looks very nice but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm very glad that a demo was provided for this game and I hope it becomes the norm on all digital releases.
  7. I've been having a lot of fun with NBA Playgrounds (an over-the-top arcade 2-on-2 basketball game like NBA Jam). It's a good deal at $20 in the eshop. I also just bought Minecraft. I only got to play it a few minutes so far but it runs and looks great. I've been pleasantly surprised by the Switch's lineup so far. It's been a good mix of titles that span from AAA to indies. With Ultra Street Fighter 2 and Arms coming soon, the fighting game void will be filled. Hopefully, we can get some shooters like Call of Duty/Overwatch/Borderlands 2 or dungeon explorers like Diablo 3/Torchlight.
  8. I use the amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack) for $8.99. Very easy to put on with the scotch tape method. I'm pretty rough with how I put it in the dock and the glass screen protector has no marks on it. I'm very happy with it.
  9. If the screen scratching is your main concern, I would just get a glass screen protector. My Switch dock is on a lower shelf so when I dock it, I don't even look or worry about the angle I'm putting it in. I just slide it in and move it back and forth until it's seated properly. No scratches at all on the glass screen protector.
  10. What are you guys' thoughts on buying physical vs. digital for the Switch? For home consoles, I typically buy physical because it's cheaper but I have to admit, on my 3DS and Switch, I like not having to carry other games and swap them in and out.
  11. I like the return to the clamshell design but it does seem strange to release another 3DS offshoot. Between all the other models, you'd think Nintendo would have their 3DS bases pretty well covered already. I wonder with the Switch on the high end of portables and 3D not really catching on (how many people just play their 3DS with the 3D slider off?), if Nintendo will eventually pare their 3DS lineup to just the New 2DS XL. I think there will always be a market for a cheaper, sturdier portable gaming experience for kids.
  12. Yes, but I believe non-Zelda Amiibos only give you food/ingredients. Zelda Amiibos give you chests with special items and food/ingredients.
  13. Toys 'R Us is having a buy 3 Amiibos for $20 sale (both in-store and online) for Amiibos regularly priced $13.99 or less (the Breath of the Wild Zelda ones are unfortunately $15.99). I'm not sure if any other Switch games use the Amiibos but Breath of the Wild does. I got Epona last night with the Link Super Smash Bros. Amiibo!
  14. My 12 year old enjoyed Snipperclips and Fast RMX (both multiplayer games).
  15. I picked up the Nintendo Switch case actually made by Nintendo over the weekend for $20. A quick review: Pros: - Very slim (~1.5" at its thickest) - There's padding along the inside of the zipper so the zipper does not rub against the Switch. - There's a double-hinged flap that protects the Switch's screen and has a mesh pocket to store small, thin items (cartridges, SD cards, maybe a short USB C cable). **EDIT: the mesh pocket does hold a 3' USB C cable and 2 joy con grips can also fit in the case (but not in the mesh pocket) if I place the Switch on the top flap and the mesh pocket is underneath the Switch with the grips.** It also flips backwards into the top half of the case to make a slightly more angled stand for the Switch (~60 degrees). I'm thinking that if I get a USB C cable with a right-angle connector, I can charge the Switch and play it at the same time in tabletop mode (I haven't tried this yet so take that for what it's worth). Cons: - The case is padded but not a hard shell so it will not protect the Switch from being crushed or dropped from more than a few feet. - No carrying handle - Not a lot of storage inside for other accessories like you'll find in bigger, thicker cases. - The included screen protector is kind of cheap-looking (it's more like a thin film) and they don't include any accessories to help you apply it without bubbles. For me, it suits my needs. I wanted something slim to carry my Switch in my backpack that I can just throw the case in there and not have to worry about it getting scratched or jabbed with anything I might have floating around in my backpack. If you have things like heavy books in your backpack/bag that might put a lot of pressure on the Switch, you'll probably want a hard shell case. One minor, strange thing about the case is that the Switch logo and small Nintendo logo on either side of the case seem like they should be switched. When you stick the Switch in the case so that the protective flap is covering the screen and close the case, the side with the small Nintendo logo is facing up when it feels like the Switch Logo should be on that side.
