      I sure hope so! The Pokemon franchise deserves better.

      This just seems like a blatant cash grab, and the $99 Pokeball accessory is

        If your Switch is collecting dust you are simply not the target demographic for Nintendo right now. Its got tons of games and lots of people are getting plenty of use out of their Switch. It surpassed Wii U total sales in less than a year on the market.

          What are the recent big games besides the Donkey Kong and Hyrule Warriors re-releases?

            Why does it have to have lots of "big games?"

            They have spaced out their big title releases pretty strategically, and sprinkled in tons of indies to keep people busy. Whatever they are doing its working.

            Thing is people are judging its success because they personally are not getting use out of it, without looking around to see plenty of others are.

              Well to be fair, a large chunk of the 'big names' have been ports of existing Wii-U games, and the generational refresh titles.

              There's a yearning for titles other than those two types.

              Nintendo spaced their titles strategically but they don't really change up the variety all that much. OF all their IP's and they only remain focused on Mario, Zelda, and Donkey Kong.


              Metroid is still a ways off (and it was a hype title at the time of announcement), F-Zero could use a revival (are we tired of Mario Kart? Nah, but would like to see something a bit more on the traditional side), Starfox needs a proper new game and not another Starfox64 reboot/remake.
              How about a new Pilotwings?
              Any news on Pikmin4?
              How about a Mario RPG that isn't of the Paper or Mario & Luigi style?

              Actually I think people were just hoping to know what Retro Studios is working on. After the DK tropical freeze they've gone completely silent.

                Looks like octopath is a meaty game, 50-60 hours for the main quest and 80-100 for the peeps who like to do everything.

                  Yea, The WiiU ports are my problem with it at this point, I have a WiiU with all these games already. I want to see NEW triple A games more then we have to this point.

                    I might be negative, but if one wants to play aaa titles, the ps4 and xbx is the place for that.

                    A console that is weaker than an iphone x will miss out on most of those.

                      I'm not looking for AAA PS4 and XBOX titles, I'm looking for Nintendo type game AAA titles.

                        So only Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the game to look out for and that too in December. Meh.

                          Yeah, if you're really only interested in Nintendo's first party big name titles there's going to be a lot of waiting around between releases. That's a given.

                              depends on one's definition/interpretation of a AAA game.

                              Call me old school but im at a point where I actually prefer the more retro styled and colorful titles over the constant barrage of dark, gritty, ultrarealistic, graphics are everything bloody action games that find their way on the PS4/Xbone. Well I could also be bias as well seeing as ive been a Nintendo fanboy for all these years.

                              But I still want to see some variety. We know what we get from the Mario's and the Donkey Kong's and the Zelda's. Could use a bit more Xenoblades or Bayonetta's or the like, something a bit more darker than the typical Nintendo fare and that isn't a port.

                              But if dev's can port stuff to phones, they sure as hell should be able to port stuff to the Switch.

                                Fortnite was the most recent, that's about the biggest game you can get at the moment on any machine

                                  Mario Tennis isn't a port, and it's actually pretty good, Xenoblade 2 standalone expansion is out soon that is also quite a decently large game.

                                  Splatoon 2 just got a singleplayer expansion. I will get pokemon just because of the nostalgia of Pokemon red/blue/yellow factor.

                                  Real generation 8 pokemon is coming next year.

                                  Also you gotta remember Nintendo never announces everything due this year at E3, many times they have announced stuff litteraly 1-2 months before they arrive on the console.

                                    Doesn't even have to be Nintendo first party games.

                                    How about just plain Switch exclusive games?

                                    I had my hopes up for this machine, but I still see no reason to buy one. Probably will end up treating it just like the WiiU. Wait until it's on the way out and being replaced, and pick up a super cheap used system complete with a few games.

                                      So, thinking about jumping on that hdr/uhd train, how does those displays handle sub 1080p resolutions?

                                              Looks like the compromises they made to get this thing even running on the switch had some unfortunate consequences.

                                                My Switch is gone. It just disappeared.

                                                    Just got my copy of smash brothers ultimate, seems to be another winner in the series by Nintendo!

                                                        Yeah,

                                                        So I'm thinking that it either got left at our cottage.
                                                        My son took it to school(won't confess) and it was stolen.
                                                        It was left in my car and stolen.

                                                        It's not in my house or my mothers.

                                                                    I hope they have a backup plan like porting the metroid prime trilogy or a switch remaster of that 3ds remaster of metroid 2.

That and "more things metroid are coming".

                                                                                I guess my $38 pre-order from Amazon wont be coming any time soon.
