Just back from the Nintendo event. |
I'm keeping my pre-order, but I wish I had gone for the neon version.
Snipperclips and Zelda, as expected, can't freaking wait.
Mario Kart: loved it, the pre-order stays, roll on April.
1-2 Switch: sorry, but as far as I am concerned this is total garbage and full respect to the Nintendo booth staff who managed to keep their enthusiasm throughout the experience - despite drawing the shortest of the short straws.
Arms: Really good fun - it's the one I thought I wouldn't like. I'm not too keen on motion controls, but this could be the one where this actually works! Very pleasantly surprised.
Splatoon: my partner loved it (the first shooter she ever found engaging); I'm a bit meh, but I can see how this can become a family favourite when my nephews start getting into it.
Hardware: no left controller issues. And I thought they were comfortable enough.
Pro controller: I had my 10 minutes on Zelda and, controversially, I couldn't wait to go back to the "regular" controller. Horses for courses, etc apply, but I would recommend that people give the switch controller a chance for a week or two before spending £65 on the pro.
I totally see how current WiiU owners might baulk at spending £360 to play Zelda and MK and it might make more sense for them to wait till Mario Odyssey is out; but my last Nintendo console was the GameCube and I have really missed these games.
