    1. Im kind of blown away…..by on game! Just a few weeks ago I was thinking of a classic game,Bomberman 64! I havent seen a bomberman game in years so i thought he might of died off. He would be a great smash fighter as well! So this actually makes my day if its anything like bomber64

      1. Actually, it’s more old school then that. Think top down bomberman with 4-way explosions… or check the reveal video.
        I enjoyed Bomberman 64 as well, by the way.

        Knowing our luck, it’ll go up for preorder & sell out within 10 minutes or fucking less! Ugh..! I’m worried my hype high is gonna crash & burn like a fucking nuke in the next several hours..!

        1. Well when I went to GS to preorder my Switch (success, by the way), they had spots for 27 Switch reservations, and 5 BotW Special Edition bundles, two of which got taken by the two guys in front of me (was third in line). It definitely looks like that SE is going to be rather limited.

          1. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

            Success with my preorder of Switch, too. I’m holding out hope against hope that I can get lucky & get myself the Master Edition. If not, I’ll just get the game digitally when I get my Switch home from GameStop. Oh & they only had 2 Switch preorders when I got there! @.@ I was very lucky.

                I’m gonna try & get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 on day 1 so that’s two. I’m hoping Capcom will give us a great Monster Hunter for Switch at some point so that will hopefully make it 3. If they don’t, I’ll just stick with Koei Tecmo’s Toukiden on my PS4 instead.

                1. Same with me on MK8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 (already preordered that one). I’ve never been into Monster Hunter so that’s lost on me. Might get Super Bomberman R day 1 since it’s been so long since the last Bomberman game (never mind it’s by Konami- I’m giving it a chance). And of course I have my eye on Xenoblade Chronicles 2. BotW is a given.

                    I’m not liking the bad news I’ve been hearing today. I’ve already given them two strikes, one strike for each of the 2 I hated hearing about.

                    1. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

                      They might or might not let us use external hard drives. As for what caused the 1st strike, I can’t recall. I’m gonna see if I can use WordPress to see all of my comments that I made with it to find it.

                    2. Yeah, no external HDs seems like a step back. Even the Wii U allowed the use of those, though I stuck with a flash drive I wasn’t using since I acquired a new one.

                      Find it! No Miiverse replacement that fixes the issues the first one had like those fucking post/comment limits!

                    4. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

                      Shit, fuck. Meant found it.

                    5. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

                      Damn! Can’t look at my comments from one spot on my WordPress account page so I’m gonna have to hunt it down. Or I could wait til someone responds to it. lol Anyway, looks like I’ll be going through the topics I checked out & search my name or strike one.

  1. Considering how much $$$ I’ll need to drop for the console & the Master Edition of Breath of the Wild – It’s OK if it’s a little light at launch.

  2. Very, very disappointed that “1 2 Switch” is even a thing.

    That being said, I’ll be buying a Switch for Zelda at launch. And the new Mario game looks absolutely incredible.

      1. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

        I think Nx was being cute. He did put a lot of Ms in that hm. So it doesn’t sound like he was believing the leaks more than he was actually calling bullshit on them.

  3. So we’ve got the AMAZING Breath of the Wild, the usual Just Dance, and 1, 2 Switch which is… something… and the rest looks like minor stuff and remakes/ports. Hmm…

    I’m buying it just for Zelda, and later Splatoon/Mario, but this system could do with a bit more…

  4. So for Launch at least they need to bundle that 1-2 Switch game, because IT WILL not sell.

    For having a good experience with Switch, we’ll need more than $600.

    – Switch = $300
    – Extra Joy-Con Controllers = $80
    – 1 or 2 games = $160
    – Online(in the fall) = $20-$60?
    – 1(at least) Pro Controller = $70..
    and all those are USD without Taxes…

        1. Oh, OK… well if the procontroller has a gyro in it, then it gets a pass. That makes it more than just a regular controller then…

          I am still gonna say, very hard to sell this system without a better game at launch I can just get on wii U… unless the game is that much better

          1. Yeah I was hoping for a better launch but personally I’ve been wanting a new Bomberman game for a long time now. I kind of feel like I just pre ordered a $300 Bomberman game! lol
            But I will say, being able to play BOTW on lunch break (or Bomberman with co workers) will be pretty fun. And then when MK8 Deluxe comes out the next month things are going to get wild. I also can’t wait to be able to throwdown on Street Fighter at the drop of a hat. I see pretty good potential for this system. Still disappointed that there is no word of a new Luigi’s Mansion, but with HD rumble being announced it seems like that game will be, as Quadraxis would say, inevitable…

            1. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

              I feel I paid 300 for Zelda. xD

    1. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

      Once they said we’d be paying for online in the fall, I knew right then & there that it will most likely have what I want since from what I’ve read, it’s very similar to PS Plus & it does say more features will be revealed after release. And watching the Zelda trailer sealed the deal. I hope I can preorder it later. *is ready to go Jason Voorhees on some people if not* @.@

  5. Man, this is kind of disappointing. We waited all this time and that’s the launch line up? There better not be another drought. Zelda’s good, but it can’t carry the Switch forever.

  6. I can get breath of the wild for Wii U. What’s the point of buying a Switch?
    Man I’m so disappointed. So so so disappointed

  7. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚At all the butt hurt fans crying about the launch line up!To think Zelda,Mario Kart and Mario would launch day 1 is laughable!πŸ˜‚
    PS4 launch line up was garbage and so was Xbox 1!Switch launches with a new Zelda that looks incredible and u still complain?Switch getting MKart in April,not to mention a brand new FIFA,Street Fighter,Fire Emblem,splatoon etc in the works!
    Every one cried for Zelda to be day 1 launch,it is yet people cry not enough 3rd party games?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Sadly I’m not a fan of the fire emblem games nor a big Zelda fan. Not when I can still enjoy the open world joy that is Xenoblade Chronicles X a game with such varied environments, mechs, sci-fi, and character customization. So I’m waiting.

  8. It honestly seems a little weaker than what the Wii U was at launch, my hopes are for a huge turnover like what happened with the 3DS otherwise this will be pretty bad….

  9. I learned my lessons from the Wii and Wii U and I’m gonna wait. (Mind you I don’t hate either console and ADORE some particular games on each) HOWEVER, I’ve learned the lesson that over the lifetime of the console, there’s more of a library to look forward to, as titles accumulate with time. There’s no need to rush for me. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 won’t be out till way later, Mario won’t be out till later, No new Kirby. Splatoon 2 and Arms look good but can be added later on.

    I’ll just play more NES mini and my major backlog of older games and wait till the time is right. I don’t see the reason to rush and spend 300 bucks + now internet costs. Especially when the games I’m always interested in come out later in a console’s life. I’m going to sit back and chill.

    1. Thank you for sharing my sentiments. I’m going to be doing the same as I bought a U at launch with many more games that I enjoyed. Instead I’ll just buy the U version of BoTW.

  10. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ at the people in here!
    Ive just preordered a Switch with Zelda and Bomberman.
    I’ll be playing Zelda on the go on the train,bus,plane, everywhere,while u will be crying and complaining waiting for Xmas!πŸ˜‚
    And in April I will be playing MARIO Kart deluxe on the go while you all will still be complaining!πŸ˜‚
    Just to refresh people’s memories the Wii launched with a Zelda game and look how that turned out for Nintendo!
    So many fake Nintendo fans in here,cry that u want Zelda a day 1 launch as u will buy the Switch just for that,it is a day 1 launch and the sane people now saying not enough launch games Ian going to wait?πŸ˜‚

  11. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK, NINTENDO! Zelda is a Wii U title, so it doesn’t count as a Switch launch title. This means Nintendo has ZERO original games for launch (1, 2 Switch is a demo)! That’s the fucking worst launch lineup of all time! They done fucked it up again! I really want to buy the system, but the only launch game that interests me is Zelda, and I can buy that one for my Wii U. Without Zelda, the Switch would fail hard. Also, everyone who isn’t into Zelda has no reason to buy the system.

    1. Twilight Princess was also a GameCube game that launched simultaneously on the Wii!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Seriously u need to get a grip!New Zelda is better than anything launched on PS4 in 2 years and it’s a lunch title!Go and buy a PS4 u fake Nintendo fan!πŸ˜‚

      1. “a game no one has played is better than multiple goty winners”

        Nice try buddo. Also, the reason the Wii was sucessful wasn’t because of Twilight Princess, it was because of a cheap gimmick that non-gamers loved, oh and it’s super easy hacking, that helped too.

        There’s no such thing as a “real” fan just to top this off, hell, if there was, it’d probably belong to the person who isn’t pointing the finger going “lolololol you don’t think the same you fake”

    That’s weak… Very weak… But that’s fine. I got a big backlog of PS4 games. Hell! There are plenty of games I want to buy that I can’t afford at this exact moment! Not to mention the games like Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 that will be releasing soon. *looks it up really quick* Holy fucking shit! They’re releasing on March 28th! *cries* MY POOR FUCKING WALLET!!! IT’S GONNA BE CRYING BLOODY MURDER AFTER I’M THROUGH WITH IT THAT MONTH!!!

      BLOODY-FUCKING-MURDER* Better.

  13. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

    I have to say people are putting way too much stock in the launch line up for Switch, though. We got Zelda in March, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe in April, Splatoon 2 in the summer, Super Mario Odyssey in fall/winter, & not to mention they might reveal a whole slew of games hitting in the months between Splatoon 2 during E3. Maybe I’m just blinded by the hype right now, though. *shrug* I hope everyone still feeling underwhelmed or letdown can have their spirits lifted at E3, though. Anyway, for me, 2017 is looking a hell of a lot better than 2016 when it comes to Nintendo!

    1. I’m disappointed if only because the two games I REALLY wanted (pikmin 4 and metroid) weren’t shown. Apart from that I’ll admit the presentation was great and objectively good for lots of other people but, despite my reasoning’s being as petty as no metroid, I’m still personally very disappointed.

      That’s not to say I think it was objectively terrible or anything, but I’m going to keep working on my game because there’s still no signs that we’re getting another traditional metroid anytime soon. I’d rather make something than play the waiting game again like with the wii u.

      1. Same here. I want some news on the status of Metroid and Kid Icarus. It’s been too long for both series’. Maybe we’ll get some surprises at E3. It’s not far away.

            1. It’s being made in Game Maker so it’s not a hack. That being said, I’d like to be able to get the feel of the game as close to metroid as possible.

              Also that’s great that you’re working on a project as well. Do you have a project page or anything like that (I just have my DA account).

              1. Not yet. This is my first foray into game creation. I don’t think I’ll start posting anything until I make more progress. So far though, I’m happy with the way things are proceeding and I have a few more projects lined up.

                    1. Sure thing. My (admittedly cringe worthy) name is Dinar87 on deviant art and all you have to do is send me a message whenever you like. Or you could comment on the various things I post. It’s really up to you how you want to contact me as pretty much anything is fine.

                    2. It doesn’t really mean anything. I just randomly thought of a word and chose it for my username since I didn’t care about my name all that much. That being said, if someone hacked my name to be “whiny metroid fanboy” I’d care about my name then but otherwise it’s just a name y’know?

      2. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

        Now that I think about it, I’m slightly disappointed by the lack of Metroid & Pikmin 4 news, too, but I’m content with what we did see so far.

  14. Super excited for Breath of the Wild, 1, 2 Switch looks interesting too, but in my opinion this Launch is a little weak. Where’s that Mario and Rabbids RPG Crossover? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Skyrim should have been there at least. The Nintendo Switch is a miracle, it’s THE BEST console I’ve ever seen and I’m very impressed. All Nintendo needs to do is to fix their LAUNCH, then everything will be ok. To tell you guys the truth I’m a little worried, because like most of you, I LOVE Nintendo and I really want them to succeed!

  15. The only game that is going to sell the Switch is The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Other than that, the others are ‘okay’ bonuses. Nintendo couldn’t even have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in there? Smh. It seriously needs a more recognisable IP in there.

    1. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

      I’m counting March & April’s games as the Switch’s launch window, so for me, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a launch title.

    2. Omega Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

      But I agree! It needs more BOOM in March & April.
