As time went on, I warmed back up to it. Warmed to the point where I can't wait for March 3rd now. Zelda being a factor, I'm sure.... but almost every hands-on impression from people have been like "wait until you use this, it's impressive" and it's almost like Nintendo did some impressive things with the hardware. The screen and controller quality is just more of the greatness I had hoped for.
Anyone else been on a rollercoaster since last Fall, too?
i still don't have one
That being said, I went from full hype mode (wanting almost every day one game) to realizing most of my time/money is best spent elsewhere. I'll be getting the Switch, a Pro Controller, and the Zelda Master Edition on day one but nothing else. The money I would have spent on throwaway stuff like 1 2 Switch and Bomberman will go towards games like Mass Effect, Prey, and my purchase of Project Scorpio.
Also helps that I played it already :3
I wish I'd been able to secure a neon set. I kind of like the asymmetry.
Roll on the next day and I was getting more and more hyped as I saw videos, read impressions and more games got announced. I'm now unfortunately counting down the days until March 3rd as I'm at the highest hype!
edit - If I remember correctly it was footage of Zelda running in handheld mode that got me excited fully again on the 14th, made me realise that I needed it.
Now i just want it and the anticipation is destroying me.
There's a good amount of great games releasing before that.
I'll feel differently about it after I've burned through Zelda and have 8 months to wait until Mario.
Hopefully Street Fighter 2 is a launch title (yeah it sucks that I'm dying to play a 20 year old game on a brand new console).
I have Zelda pre-ordered but I hate all the Aonuma Zeldas so I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
MK8 is absurdly priced and I haven't made a definitive decision on Arms.
It'll just be sitting there collecting dust.
I'll get it when Odyssey drops and give my Wii U one last hurrah with Zelda.
I canceled because I'm sure there's not going to be another Wii situation where you can't find one for months at a time.
I'm kinda tempted to cancel since there's just way too many games on other platforms that I want to play around the launch date.
There's just too much to play, and as excited as my wife is for trying out 1/2 Switch and I am for Zelda, it's such a big investment to bring in brand new system when it looks like more amazing stuff is coming out for something I already have. I haven't even fished TLG & GR2 yet let alone RE7 in VR and now Nier/Nioh/Horizon on the way...
I'm just going to have games in packages sitting there if I keep buying lol, I know it.
I played so much Mario Kart on Wii U and I've never really been a fan of battle mode so for me it became a Zelda machine until Splatoon/Mario.
The problem is though that I'm desperate to play Zelda and I sold my Wii-U a couple of months ago so I'm weakening again.
Nintendo is like an ex that I really want to get away from, but man gettin fucked from behind just feels so good sometimes, ya know?
Been awaiting in excitement ever since. If anything, I want it more every day as games like RedOut are confirmed and games like Fire Emblem Warriors are shown.
Same here ! I thought it was not possible (all red could have been right joy con) but they are not stupid and inverted the colors when sold separately ! So I really could be buying the neon one now...
Im just unsure if I want the neon one or the grey one. The neon onem would mean getting the extra joycon's to match those colours later.
