I'm really contemplating getting a Switch now.

Was at Dave & Busters for the nephew's birthday (he's freaking 3 years old already.... wtf ) and they had the arcade version of it that he loved. Being the great uncle that I am, I of course had to intentionally get him into first just to blue shell him a few times.......

But, the more I see of the new Zelda and Smash brother games I sort of want to get one...

The only real question is; how durable are they? I don't think I'd let him have it as a full fledged portable mode, so just on the dock, but.... if he were to drop it, is it a goner like a phone now a days or are they a bit more tough?

Is it necessary to have the pro controller if it is docked? There are some bundles with it that aren't too terrible of a price with games so I'm wondering if it is worth it.

Digital vs. Cart - is it easier one way or the other? I know its got room for microSD, and would probably throw a fairly sizable card in, but if it was only a handful of games (Smash, Kart, Zelda, maybe Mario, etc.) would it be necessary?

Either way, talk me in to it or out of it, as I'm not sure I really need it, but it'd be fun to play with the little bugger.
Nintendo stuff are typically pretty durable.

In terms of controllers...it'll cost you regardless. You can use the 2 joy cons separately, but they're quite small and might be uncomfortable to hold. You can connect them to thatjoycon mount effectively giving you 1 larger pro styled controller (I dunno if its sold separately). and again theres the pro controller.

I'd probably stick with the joycons itself or get that joycon mount to have a pro-style controller, but it depends on how much multiplayer vs single player you'd be playing.

I need to give my switch a little more love. Chronicles 2, mario bros U deluxe, octopath traveler, great games on the system to name but a few.

I've been having some fun with Civilization VI. The UI works pretty well with touch controls. It's been a good time waster when staying up nights with the sleepless newborn. Computer turns are slowish when the game progresses, but not too slow so far when playing on small maps. Large maps might be a different thing.

Has anyone heard about this yet?? Rumors going around about the possibility of Microsoft bringing their exclusives to the Switch!!!

If this is true, it would be pretty awesome being able to play the Forza games on the go!

Switch has more power than 360 docked so I would be happy to play Halo and such even at those level of graphics if that was all I could get. But these happy events never seem to happen. Something comes up and we are back to the old ways. Hopefully on this one I am wrong.

I'd love to see ms & nintendo partner up, and treat the switch kindof like a portable xbox. Especially after the nextgen consoles come out, I think this can make sense.

Been sick for awhile so took the time stuck in bed to play through 2064: Read only Memories on the Switch. Fun oldschool graphic adventure game, KAC would enjoy all the gays
