If you would have told me a few years ago the next handheld would be playing all the best Wii U games releasing at the time, I'd have laughed you to scorn

I would have rejoiced (like I am now lol). I couldn't even tell you how many times I was playing on the tablet and wishing I could go more than 10' from the base unit.

Sure, delighted to be able to take the Wii U library anywhere, but don't expect me to pay for all the games again

Unless I find them going dirt cheap, MK8D and BotW will be the only Wii U games I'll buy twice.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Xbox co-creator Ed Fries on Seattle’s status as a gaming hub, Nintendo Switch’s success, and more

https://www.geekwire.com/2018/xbox-co-creator-ed-fries-seattl...

Here's the bit where he talks about Nintendo:

NL: What are your impressions of the Nintendo Switch? Is there anything other gaming companies could learn from it?

Fries: When I first saw it, I thought it was creative, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be successful. Some of the ideas we had actually talked about at Xbox, like having controllers you could separate and hold in each hand. I first played Zelda on the Wii U and enjoyed the game, and thought, maybe I don’t need a Switch. Eventually I buckled and got a Switch to play Mario, and I was really surprised how many different and creative ways they use the controllers, how they can be joined onto different supports, or you can separate them and hand them to another player and turn them sideways. It’s something that’s really won me over as a cool machine.

I love how creative Nintendo is. Now they have this Nintendo Labo with the cardboard. When I saw that I thought, good for you Nintendo, I just love how they’re always thinking outside the box. This cardboard thing ties into the whole maker movement, and it’s great to have kids building something physical.

I don’t think the right thing for Microsoft or Sony to do is imitate Nintendo or try to be Nintendo. I don’t think they’ll succeed by being Nintendo. I think they’ve gotta figure out what it is that they do well and continue to do that well.

Looks like Switch version 5.0.0 may not be far off as the new parental controls app update mentions it.

@subpopz I got about twenty feet in my house as well. Would take the gamepad to bed to play.

I can't wait for the rest of the Wii U library to come over.

NSMBU won't come, …

You seem quite convinced. Any undeniable arguments to support your claim? I haven’t seen any yet.

Is there any point to the Switch console nickname? It just seem a like a pointless thing to add.

My issue was more not being in HD. It worked, but HD capacitive screw is just so much better. That and every game requiring a different hotkey combo to swap to gamepad. Could enter remember which one to use- swipe down, find in options, + or -, + and - at same time, etc etc. That and the 20 foot invisible leash.

Personally the distance never really bothered me and TBH I mostly play my Switch in portable mode in the same room as my TV anyway. Being able to "brake the tether" with the Switch is fantastic but I rarely take advantage of it. Same deal with the Wii U not being in HD, 720p is definitely better but 480p on a screen that size wasn't that bad. For me the real reason the Switch wins is because:

1. Pretty much everything on Switch has to work off TV. On Wii U there were games which couldn't be played just on the GamePad because they used both screens in some way. Particularly annoying when the way it was used wasn't that nessisary (i.e. Splatoon).

2. There's no video compression on the Switch. The Wii U was a bit ahead of its time when you were playing something huge on a portable screen. The fact I was effectively playing the new Assassin's Creed on a portable in late 2012 still kinda blows my mind. But when you were playing an indie game or something a bit simpler? Those games looked better on 3DS. Especially fast moving retro titles like F-Zero.

3. Holding the screen while playing some games on the TV isn't forced on you. It's also not even technically possible now which is a bit of a downside. Either way, being able to use all of the features of the full device with a Pro Controller? That's kinda nice. And when my Pro Controller battery is dead I just pull off the always charged JoyCon and keep playing.

@Dizzy_Boy Why does my PC/Phone have a nickname?

@SLIGEACH_EIRE Exactly. Same with PCs on a network.

So to answer @Dizzy_Boy with a NOT snarky answer that should state the obvious, your Switch has a nickname for LAN purposes.

@YummyHappyPills asI don't have a LAN connection for my Switch, it wasn't quite so obvious. If it was, I wouldn't have needed to ask. Thanks for the reply though.

@Dizzy_Boy By LAN I mean playing locally with multiple Switches, not an Ethernet wired connection

Local multiplayer basically

LAN stands for Local Area Network. In a typical house, you have a router with wifi and ethernet which is in turn connected to the internet. Everything behind them are in the same LAN. If you log in to the router, you will probably see the nickname you have given the switch. This is because seeing just the IP-number isn't useful for puny humans.

@toiletduck
People are tired of the New series and they've never ported a New Super Mario game to date.

They'd likely just release a new one instead.

@gcunit
Oh I'll buy em again, just like I used to buy Vita versions of PS4 games and 3DS versions of Wii U games. Handheld version of a game I love? Sold.

If I were more strict with my money, I'd still buy all my favorites (Mario Kart 8, DKC Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2, etc)

NOW PLAYING
NS: Chocobo’s Dungeon, Trials Rising, Tales of Vesperia
X1: Trials Fusion, DMC5
GPD Win 2: Fire Emblem Path of Radiance
