So I took the plunge and picked up splatoon 2 last week and I'm happy to say it's bloody great!
I just wanted to say thanks for the recommendations. it's quickly become my favourite game on the switch so far.
even when we don't win a game it's still such a fun game to play.
it started to feel like every game on switch was a super hard metroidvania type game and I can't be annoyed with those type of games anymore.

My extremely user friendly code thingy (cos nintendo allowing adding gamertags would have been such a hassle!!!)

It is so great hearing other father's here reflecting what happens in my home my four year old daughter loves playing Arms Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 and my two year old son enjoys eagerly encouraging!! Sharing this hobby with them feels so special and watching them grow in ability is great. Nintendo is the definition of family gaming even my wife enjoys some platforming. I have a nackering job so don't always have the energy for online but if something is occurring will try and get involved.

Bit off topic but what is everyone's line of work??

@shani Hi shani, I'd love to join you guys, but unfortunately, I won't be home between Wednesday and Saturday, so I won't have access to any of my systems (well, aside from the Switch of course, though I doubt I'll have much time for that either). It's a really busy week =(

If you like, you can leave a link to the stream though, maybe I'll manage to take a peek and do some relaxing while watching you guys kick a** ^^

@bluemage1989 To be honest we haven't given Overcooked much of a chance yet. I bought it to play with my boys, but they haven't shown a great deal of interest in it so far. My eldest (10) is very much obsessed with Zelda and Minecraft at the moment. My difficult middle child (5) is into Mario Kart, Pokken and ARMS. The youngest (2) likes wooden trains.

I'M currently going through Xenoblade Chronicles again. I beat it a few years back after it became my favorite RPG of all time. I'm actually loving it just as much as the first time around. I'm messing around more with the affinities. I didn't pay much attention to affinity the first time around.

53 years old here Father of 2. A boy and a girl both of which are out of the house doing their thing in society. Proud of them both. I was a Bellman in Las Vegas for 30 years until I got cancer. I got Neuropathy from Chemotherapy and haven't worked for about 7 years. It's very painful.

Good bye to the Switch. I sold my Switch and didn't price gouge anyone. That's probably it for home consoles me at 52. I love 3DS and consider it to be my console. The Switch went to a nice family with kids I'm sure who will love it for years to come.

@JasmineDragon

What do you reckon to Strikers 1945?? Never played many scrolling shooters but I love WW2 stuff I know it's a bit more fantastical but is it a good entry into the genre??

@andykara2003 Thank you. I have a Wii and a PS2 although I'm getting ready to sell the PS2. I had a Switch but we needed some fast money and I sold it. I'm pretty bummed about that decision. It's mainly Wii and 3DS. It's an awesome time to be a Wii player. Everything is so cheap.

I know - the Wii has some amazing games. I even prefer the Mario galaxy games over the fantastic Mario odyssey. And the Wii is the definitive way to play Metroid prime 1 from the trilogy in my opinion because of the amazing controls. DKCR is pretty fantastic too - I have a Wii permanently hooked up to a CRT.

@bluemage1989 It's a great shmup, just forget everything you know about WWII before you play and you're good to go.

I think I'll mostly play Splatoon 2 for the drawing feature.

@bluemage1989 I've got both of the Strikers games, they're amazing shoot-em-ups. If I was to pick my favourite, I'd say the original edges it. Not many folk would agree with that but I find the challenge in 2 ramps up too quickly. I think the music is better in 1 too. You can't go wrong with either though. Same goes for Gunbird and Samurai Aces. I actually just started playing Samurai Aces today and it's possibly my new favourite from the Psikyo shooters. The graphics and music are top notch and the difficulty is spot on. If you do end up getting any of them, just remember to play them in vertical mode. Superb stuff.
