^ F*ck it, that's it. I'm buying it. I don't care if I'm out $500 and eating dirt... stupid CAD.
I'll keep that in mind for when the symptoms begin, assuming I'm not too busy playing the game to notice them
So the reviews for the Switch itself are very iffy, but Breath of the Wild is getting perfect 10s across the board.
Yeah, everybody's commenting that the Switch itself is a really cool concept with a ton of potential, but a hardware issue (sync issues with left Joycon) and the lack of a clear plan for online gaming (plus no Virtual Console atm) are kind of a bummer.
Still getting it just for Zelda though. I'm honestly quite surprised at how ridiculously good all of the reviews for the game have been so far. Future games also look pretty promising, so I doubt I'll regret getting the console in the long run.
The joycon issue is fixed with an update. I've also seen quite a few good reviews for the switch. Excited to pick it up along with LOZ.
I haven't had a Nintendo console in quite a while... but this game makes it preeeeeeeeeeeeetty tempting.
I'm not bummed about Virtual Console at all tbh, I still carry my 3DS in my backpack and I have countless VC titles on there. So I have my fix for portable retro gaming, it looks infinitely better on the smaller screen resolution as well rather than stretched across the Switch monitor.
I'll play the hell out of Zelda but I do hope there are more games sooner than later, I never got around to playing Mario Kart 8 so I can just get that and Splatoon until Mario Odyssey.
It's been a fun morning.
^ Lucky! Hope you're enjoying the crap out of it. No spoilers though! I've unfollowed all Zelda-related social media pages I was following until I beat the game. I'm still not putting my order down, unfortunately. Gotta figure some things out financially if I want to make this work.
Got 4 hours in and now I think it's time for bed. This game is really good.
#4 Best ranked game of all time on Metacritic, I wasn't expecting that to be completely honest.
Nice, just when I manage to sort out things financially, the damn thing sells out on Amazon and just about everywhere else. Gonna have to make a little trip to Walmart, BestBuy, EB Games, etc., to see if any of them have, by any miracle, any stock left at their stores.
Apparently the differences in quality between the Wii U and Switch versions is very minor. Debating on trying to get this with a (hopefully cheap and used) Wii U or just wait to see if I get it if I decide to get a Switch around Mario Odyssey time.
^ I've been looking into that. Even after making triple sure I could pay for it without having to go hungry, I'm still finding it hard to part with that much money for a new system and a game.
I looked into used Wii U's on eBay for a little while, and the cheapest option I came up with was a used Wii U + gamepad, and it was only about $100 cheaper than buying a brand new Switch, and for a console that is essentially already dead, even if it does have a few titles that are really good. It makes more sense in my head investing the extra money on a console that actually has a future, I think. I thought the WiiU would go for cheaper now that the new console has been released.
The Deluxe Wii U is only 200 Refurbished on Nintendo's official site. It would only cost you 260 to get a setup running to play Zelda if that's all you're after.
I'm not sure if it was mentioned already but for the Wii U, you need to use the game pad or Wii U Pro controller -- no standard remote + joystick combo.
You say that like Gamepad and Pro controller aren't the standard controllers for Wii U games...
I don't know, guys...
I tried the game, and I didn't like it at all. It was really bitter. Like chemically-bitter tasting. I highly recommend trying a different game- maybe one that tastes like strawberries or citrus, instead.
How does one taste a steam game...?
