  1. Disattisfied with software. Hope it will change fast.
    Interesting that many people play portable indoors, I do it too. ^^
    Pro Controller attach rate is too high. Already questioning the Joy-Con? I don’t really need it, I find the Joy-Con excellent, except for analogs that aren’t much accurate. That’s a compromise.

  2. The Switch is my favorite console since the SNES. If The Switch can release these games within the next two years, than that’s a wrap. The console will probably go on to sell 80-100 million units..

    1)Real next gen Pokémon
    2)MH5
    3)A true Metroid game
