    UPDATE: Without spending too much time back-treading over my review, I’m changing my review to 5 stars (from 4) for the following reasons:

    1) the screen has never gotten a scratch after hundreds of hours of use. Even with some fairly casual handling a couple of drops. Not a scratch. Maybe I’m lucky, but IMO, the plastic seems sufficiently durable.

    2) The joy-con connectivity problem is well-sorted at this point.

    3) Online play is cheap enough to not be a bother ($20/year) and I can’t make judgments until it goes live.

    4) I don’t know if I’d call this console “cheap” anymore. For its price point, it is extremely sturdy and well-made.

    5) The library is growing fast, with great content. A good library is an important point for a console.

    6) Most importantly: It is my all-time favorite gaming system. I’m a Nintendo fan, for sure, but I’ve been primarily a PC gamer for the past few years. I hardly play PC games much right now.

    A flawed system that is well built., March 8, 2017

    This review is from: Nintendo Switch – Gray Joy-Con (Video Game)

    So, despite my complaints I bit the bullet and got the Nintendo Switch, which I’ll likely be selling my WiiU to make up the difference for that mess. ANYWAY I wanted to get my thoughts out after actually getting my hands on the device.

    It’s a surprisingly well built machine, it’s the first tablet I’ve seen with screws that would allow you to open it up to change the battery if it were to fail. The joycons feel really well built, and it’s nice that you can sit back with your hands not together with normal controllers, especially if you’re like me and have wide shoulders and a barreled chest. My hands are medium sized with sausages for fingers and over all I have little issue with the joycons. The biggest issue I have is the minus button on the left joycon, I cannot for the life of me reach to hit it with my thumb, I gotta use my other hand. The “dpad”, is as a I thought not great. For all the Nintendo fanatics insisting “you need to try it to know” no, I didn’t, it’s 4 face buttons and not a pivoting dpad. It works fine for menus but it’s functionality is minimal at best for platformers.

    The buttons are click-y and nice overall and the sticks function well. Obviously something like the XB1/PS4/WiiUPro sticks are better for precision but, for a portable/non portable device? Totally serviceable, though if you have bigger hands you may not like the right analog stick location unless you’re using the included joycon holder thing.

    The screen is lovely, it’s 720p but obviously when the game is scaled to match the device’s screen it works nicely. Seeing the game at 900p on my 1080p TV isn’t as bad as everyone makes it to be, maybe it’s just Breath of the Wild’s cell shaded art style (no other games to really try this with either) but it certainly isn’t ugly as I’ve heard. Maybe on a 4k TV it’s harder to swallow, I don’t know. Speaking of which, the transition is pretty swift, put it into the dock, it’s instantly on the TV, something I’ve wanted for YEARS.

    Okay, I’ve sounded pretty positive, but now I’m going to talk about the flaws to this device, and they can be pretty severe depending on what you want to do with the unit.

    The dock is a cheap pile of garbage, it’s mostly hollow, really light, okay-feeling plastic. It looks nice, even hides your cables but there’s one other major flaw with this. There’s sliders to help guide the tablet into the dock, they are hard plastic and WILL SCRATCH YOUR SCREEN. How you ask? The screen isn’t glass, it’s a soft plastic that you can easily, easily scratch. Got a 3DS? It’s like that. You absolutely need a screen protector, so get your credit card ready because there’s more than that 10 bucks you’ll be spending.

    The internal storage is less than 32GB after formatting, system/game updates. Do not bother with saving games here, find a microSD card, make sure it’s a fast one and get no less than 64GB. Games range from 4GB to around 30GB. You’ll probably want one off amazon since I’ve seen 128GB cards go on sale for 50 or less.

    The battery life is awful. I’m sure there’s someone reading this who’ll leap to defend it. If people mock the Game Gear for crap battery life, this thing lasts less than even that device playing something like Breath of the Wild. 2.5-3 hours, if you have a full, new, battery. So, more money spending if you’re a mobile person! Because you can purchase a USB-C battery bank and play on the go, which is obviously less than ideal. Game Gear offered the same option and it’s still dumb 20 years later.

    The kickstand is useless, it’s, so, useless. I have a Surface Pro 4 and had a SP2 which yes is a more expensive device but the kickstand being my point goes across the entire back flush and shouldn’t be too hard. Also, if you want to play and charge in tablet mode? You can’t because the USB-C port is on the bottom of the unit, meaning it can’t sit while you play unless you, you guessed it, buy a stand. Or if you have a 3D printer I’m sure you can swing that.
    The device is huge, if you’re going to travel, you want some kind of case. There’s a few of them online I’ve seen, all gigantic rivaling the size of the Atari Lynx model 1. This isn’t really avoidable since it does have a big (and lovely) screen and the controllers fit on the sides, even if you take them off you still need to store them.

    The clips that snap onto the sides of the joycons are a huge problem, it’s really easy to mix them up and put them on wrong and…well just youtube how to fix it because, with a tool it’s easy to get off. Otherwise, you may be stuck till you get one.

    It’s not a perfect system but it’s getting a lot of flack I don’t think it deserves. Don’t get me wrong it’s bloody flawed, down to the accessories being way too expensive. But if you want one, and you MUST have one, it’s not a purchase I think you’d have to be ashamed of.

    Rumors to talk…

    A Very Awesome System to Own, November 1, 2017
    By 
    R.C. Davidson (Vicksburg, MS) –

    In a world where console manufacturers are trying to get their systems to run games at 4K resolution, Nintendo once again pitches a curve-ball, and it seems to have worked for them. Instead of trying to be more powerful than the others, they instead went for making a gaming tablet that can really play console quality games on the go. Let me preface this review by saying that I already reviewed this product once, but decided to write another one because I only reviewed it when I only had it for a few days, with the only game I had at the time being Puyo Puyo Tetris, even though Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild was the hot meal ticket at the time. Things have also came up during the first year alone that could make or break the console later on in it’s lifetime, so I thought they would be important to know.

    First of all, the system itself has a pretty good design to it, and I think Nintendo made some great decisions with it. The system basically looks like your regular, everyday tablet, and unlike the Wii and Wii U, they did not add any glossy plastic to it, so in my opinion, it sure does look better. The screen is also a real beauty when playing in portable mode, which is my way to play, and that’s despite the fact that it’s a 720p screen, which should help with expectations since the system is running a mobile processor. Now, unlike what would’ve been the competitor the PlayStation Vita, the Nintendo Switch uses the most standard mediums you could think of, and those things are USB Type-C and Micro SD cards. In fact, you may even have these two thing already. While USB Type-C isn’t exactly growing on trees, these cables are getting closer and closer to becoming the standard, and Micro SD cards are relatively cheap, which is good since the internal storage is only 32 GBs. Luckily, the games don’t require installation unlike the PS4 and Xbox One, because the games come in cartridges. While I do like these cartridge for this reason, they do have one issue, other than the small size, and that’s that they don’t have that much storage, up to 32 GBs, and are likely more expensive than disks. I bring this up, because a few games will require a separate download, such as NBA 2K18, WWE 2K18, L.A. Noire, and DOOM 2016 if you want multiplayer. These games will include a notice saying that it’s required, except for DOOM that has the whole singleplayer on the cart itself, but hopefully those 2 TB micro SD cards will come soon. The Switch also has a flimsy kickstand, and sometimes, it doesn’t like to stay closed. Still though, I think the Switch itself is well designed.

    The dock is also a great addition. What the dock does is that when you put the Switch in it, you can then play your games on a TV, in which the Switch itself will upscale the game to a higher resolution since it’s plugged into a power source other than the battery. It also has three USB ports, one of which being USB 3.0, and the back closes up for better cable management. I would say to get a screen protector, preferably glass, since the dock may scratch your Switch screen.

    The controller(s), a.k.a. the Joy-Cons, also provides some versatility to the system. They slide into place on the sides of the Switch, but with the features included, there are many ways to play. First is the basic console layout, which can be played apart or with the include “Comfort Grip.” These thing can be quite comfortable, especially when on the Switch or apart, but the Comfort Grip, while decent, can feel quite small due to the fact the stick is not angled like other systems. The Joy-Cons can also be a quick and easy way to play two player games such as Rayman Legends and Snipperclips, which actually works well with it’s sudo-SNES layout. The Joy-Cons also include motion control. While I haven’t played games that take advantage of this feature completely, such as Arms and 1-2-Switch, they can still be used for games like Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2, and it works well. The system also has a Pro controller option, but it’s a good $10 more than rival controllers. If you plan to play the Switch in console mode more than portable, though, it may not be a bad idea to get one, or maybe an alternative like J&Top’s controller or 8Bitdo’s SNES 30 Pro when it comes out if your strapped for cash or cheap.

    Lastly, let’s look at the most important thing for a system, and that’s the games, and man, Nintendo knocked it out of the park this time around, and we’re not even done with it’s first year yet (at least when this review was posted anyway). The Switch is not only a great system for indie games, which there is a lot of, but there are also great games released such as Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Sonic Mania, Splatoon 2, etc., and there are still games coming out such as DOOM, not the original but the 2016 version, L.A. Noire, Wolfenstien 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The main…
