Well, that's not why. It's because using optical media doesn't work for a portable system. (UMD was a mistake...)

Also, why are people all like "cartridge size confirmed" when a cartridge was shown in the reveal trailer?

Yeah the biggest news in all of this is the fightstick.

They wouldn't be making this for the Switch if there were no fighting games coming out.

It implies it more than not, when has a skin, or specially designed version of a console for a game ever come out when said game wasn't out already?

That Pro controller looks significantly nicer than Nintendo's own based off of the glimpses of that thing we've seen.

God damn... I am thoroughly aroused. I want skins on skins on cases on cases. Gotta have that play and charge stand on my work desk, for sure. I think my controller situation might be the 2 Joycons, 1 official Nintendo Pro and one of them Horis at ~$29.99.

I wonder if having cases on the Switch will affect it sliding into the dock. Also, might be a bit annoying to have to remove the case to detach the Joycons but I guess that's a given.

Well, if that's the charging port on the bottom, I'm not sure you'll be able to charge while it's up on the included kick stand will you?

Tekken Tag 2 was incredible for Wii U. Hope a Tekken 7 port includes Nintendo costumes.

Not buying Injustice until a complete version is released after not all the DLC appearing on the Wii U version.

Nah, it's just a Wii U port. As the sales of Twilight Princess and the Wii show everyone just buys the version for the previoua console. /s

When you're playing at the park and want to use the Joycon Grip would you want to lean your Switch against something or put it on a sturdy stand?

They can use skins to generate (even more) hype.
I still think the game will release around launch, but people shouldn't believe it's basically confirmed just because of a skin.

Yeah what's so hard to understand? People want their Switch sitting in front of them and they can change the angles and raise the Switch higher lower for comfort as they play.

It's possible that it won't, but it seems strange to sell accessories for a game (not just a franchise, but a specific game) that isn't coming out for months potentially. I would think these companies would prefer to release them around the time the game comes out for maximum effect.

That clamshell looks nice for protection but taking the Joy-Con on and off with that thing all the time sounds like a big hassle.

Definitely getting a cheap Ethernet adapter off Amazon for this though.

That's my hope.

Plus, it's the only option present for giving the game a "portable" version at all, which I'd like to think Capcom and Marvel would want to make sure is covered.

Well since you can play games with more than one person on the screen, this stand makes more plausible sense to use to comfortably play games with another. Unlike the default kickstand, it elevates the screen and gives it more viewing range for a second person

  • Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-
  • BlazBlue: Central Fiction
