You hate the fact that..... you know what im confuse...

I like the switch, but I think the commercials with the people playing at parties and sports games went overboard. I was surprised to see so many people around us while we were having fun in between fights. Im admitting that Nintendo might have been somewhat onto something with the commercialization even though I think it was slightly exaggerated. I never doubted the switch though and i've had it since day one.

I had a fight in the UFC prelims. Me against some washed up bum.

I was so board that I grabbed my switch and played some Zelda between rounds. While I was in the full guard, I played finished a shrine while I waited for the round timer to count down. Then during the victory speech, I collected some Durians while Joe Rogan flapped his gums about how hyped he was and what was next for me.

I told him Xenoblade Chronicles 2,
and to stop bothering me while I killed And harvested Guardians.

Whoever said gamers weren’t athletes?

lol

One of those very true stories

I broke out Arms and 12Switch during family gatherings over Christmas. Those two games alone got everyone involved and playing across the varying ages. Convinced a couple of buys. One mother of 2 smaller kids kept saying how their xbox purchase was a mistake. Lol

My colleague bought a X360 for his 6y old... of course he forgot to check that X360 had no games appropriated for his son, even more that he iis a very strict dad.

Parents are so out of touch with kids. I have a friend who bought a PS4 for his 6 yr old. Granted I think Switch with the detachable joycons would be dangerous, frustrating, and costly in the hands of his extremely hyperactive child, but he was talking up all the great experiences they were going to have playing Call of Duty, Farcry, and Uncharted. Lol. I can’t help but think he was buying a present for himself.



It's mobile. That's what it was designed for.

But why do you hate to say that?

Because those commercials are so cringe-endusing. A bunch of uber hipsters hanging out and trying too hard... it's rough.



Remember the dub step Wii U commercial? Yeah, I barely did either...



"Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child."

They were right that it's a handheld you can plug into your TV.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I must have missed the Switch commercial that indicated some games would have lower resolution and frame rate in handheld mode.

Your friend seems like gave himself a gift...

But my friend were more on the idiot that didn't research the system he was buying.
