So the Nintendo Switch is finally out, along with Breath of the Wild, 1-2 Switch and a ton of NEOGEO games to go with it. But now that you (if you got it day one) have had the console in your hands for a weekend, what do you think?
Perhaps the most prevailing comment I've heard from people who were interested in the Switch prior to launch, but hadn't held one yet, was that it felt a lot better in the hand than they'd expect. That's not necessarily the case playing with the Joycons separately, and I'm still not 100% sold on the positioning of the right thumb stick; I'd almost prefer the Joycons were swapped over, to be honest.
I also found the Joycon straps were incredibly difficult to remove once attached - and, yes, they were on the right controllers. Ideally I won't be in a scenario where I'll have to split the Joycons up much: I'd rather treat it like a DS/3DS, where I'm playing someone on my console and they're playing on their console. That said, the setup works just fine for something like Snipperclips, and I imagine it'd work just fine whenever Super Mario World and the like eventually get ported over.
Something that I still love: the OS. It's quick. It's snappy. It's what I want when a console launches in 2017. There's no browser and there's no function for Netflix or any other streaming apps, but what the Switch does, it does it quickly. That's good.
How have you found the Nintendo Switch so far?
