This site just isn't the same anymore without Geralt.
Yeah I honestly wish they kept him. Yes he was an obvious troll but it was just so damn funny to see all the insane stuff he did.
Well my prediction in this thread wasn't very good basically stating I didn't feel it would sell hugely until cheaper and more portable but I did at least admit I was hopeless at predicting nintendo numbers what with never understanding the mass appeal of the wii etc. I also can't help focusing on Europe rather than worldwide as that is where I am based. The Nintendo consoles I bought soon after launch were N64, Gamecube and wii u and loved them all but they never did that well commercially. When I bought a wii I spent more time on it playing my gamecube games than wii games at least for the first 2 years anyway. Not bought a Switch but intend to later but that's really because I'm not much of a portable gamer and Mario Odyssey is the only game I really want currently.
I did predict the wii u would flop though even though I bought one at launch. Many who predicted Switch success also predicted wii u success and have a general positive attitude to Nintendo products.
I have not been surprised at how Japan has taken to the Switch at all but must admit the US reception is far more positive than I expected, I was expecting it to be more inline with Europe.
I mean, we're not always right. Your posts were always reasonable, but Nintendo ended up doing well. I suppose it was good to be wrong this time. Can't imagine what would happen if the Switch was a flop
