the sticks on the joycons kind of suck.

you need to plug in your phone to teamspeak using the console (making it pointless).

replacements and controllers are stupidly expensive.

You rarely see kids in all their Switch advertisements.

The only downsides are the lackluster online and downgraded ports (most run pretty decently though).

Everything else about Switch is sleek and a return to form for Nintendo.

so like 40 bucks and I can get a "real" controller right?

It's by far the least powerful current gen console.
Also, while Odyssey and Splatoon 2 are great, BotW is super overrated.

Robert Nelson

Splatoon 2 is just a Splatoon 1 port. So if you are boarded with Splatoon 1, don't get it.

Colton Parker

And by downgraded ports, I mean 3rd party ports, as the Wii U ports from 1st party Nintendo run much better than their Wii U counterparts (Zelda BotW, MK8D and Pokken).

Ayden Morales

70 dollars for the pro controller. I personally recommend any third party stuff like 8bitdo.

Splatoon 2 is just a Splatoon 1 port
But that's not true.

They have many new primary weapons, support weapons and all of the special abilities are new, new maps, new campaign, new Salmon Run mode, etc.

Sure you can make an argument that they could've just added that in a big patch, but aren't sequels meant to expand upon original games in many cases?

Xavier Jackson
Xavier Jackson

What do you mean by downsides? Can there be downsides to something you get for entertainment? If you're interested in the games then there's really no downsides, that goes for any videogame system.

I mean that's like saying "is there a downside to buying some books." Well, you might not like them, I guess?

They gave us Grizz, and that's about it. Overall, the game feels very similar to Splatoon 1

Joshua Adams

"powerful" doesn't appeal to me, I got one of them good fer nothing gamin' computers. but as far as odyssey, splat, and botw, while the reviews may not be all 10/10's, i have "zero" way to experience it without trying to the console.

There is no good online service and they're planning to charge for it next year.

Shit battery life, have to get a pro controller because the joycons suck in console mode.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

It's the latest Atelier game.

Top is PS4, middle is Switch, bottom is Vita.

I'd compare them to PC settings of High, Medium and Low.

I agree with the basic game play; short, fast paced rounds. but it was still a bit of a disappointment

Very small library, so they are begging for ports.

Begging for ports?

It releases at the same time across all 3 platforms you dunderhead.

Tyler Young

here goes, faggot

Switch:
no virtual console
paid online that is currently free but will end soon and no one still has any idea what it even is
720p handheld screen (even my phone is 1080p)
need a phone to talk to people online through a shitty useless app
handheld battery good for 3 hours max for every game, some only 2 hours
included dock is shitty plastic and will legit fuck your screen up unless you're careful with it
32gb default storage in le current year
standard joycon are for baby hands, need to invest in pro controller
did i mention the pro controller is 70 fucking dollars

Odyssey:
very simplistic, but if you like jumping around as mario doing parkour shit you'll enjoy yourself
100% the game less than 50 hours
no point in 100% the game, you get shit all for doing it
co-op is a thing but its lame for the 2p

Zelda:
like skyrim but with even less content
weapon durability is fucking annoying
need to buy the DLC just to upgrade the master sword
DLC isn't even worth it unless you like costumes and a motorcycle that's slower than a horse

even after all that though i've got 200 hours in Zelda and 65 in Odyssey and its been pretty fun

Bentley Myers
Bentley Myers

fuck your screen up
Only the bezel actually, but it is a pretty glaring oversight.

It's a good thing screen protectors are cheap,that or you could put a microfiber cloth in the dock to cushion between your screen and the dock.

Elijah Ramirez

botw is much better than Skyrim lmao

Adam Baker

no virt console? damn...
paid online I can pay for.
res who cares to me, i like video games.
that shit is fucking shitty.
IE it's my new console.
don't ever remove it from dock mode, i'm good.
IE 70+ plus console, I'm prepared since I got fucking huge fat mechanic hands.
odyssey/zelda, last time I played them was on the n64, turns out i hear they improved

Elijah Adams

Battery life kinda sucks
Sticks on the Joycons feel kinda weird. Like they’re fine for moving a character but something feels off when using one for camera control
Official controllers are expensive
Paid online soon
E-shop needs an overhaul
The currency you earn from buying games is essentially useless at the moment

The fact that you are thinking of buying one tells me you're under 18.
So, save up the money your generous older relatives are giving you and get the fuck off this site.

70 fucking dollars

It's not that much more expensive than most controllers. Back in the day they cost $50, and when you adjust for inflation that shit wasn't so cheap. As for the dock, my screen is just fine, but I have heard some people complain about scratches. That being said, I've dropped this thing on the floor and the screen hasn't cracked, whereas my phone's screen is cracked (why the fuck do they call it Gorilla glass? This gorilla must have glass bones), so as much as people bitch about plastic screens, there is the comfort of knowing it's stable.

Odyssey felt super inconsistent. Forested Kingdom was pretty good and a lot of the boss fights felt pretty good, but some kingdoms like Cascade or Lake just felt boring or bad.

Oh you forgot the best part: All the currency you earned up until now will expire before Nintendo makes it useful.

scratching is easily remedied with a 5 dollar screen protector, too

so as with all games, BOTW and Mario current gen have SOME sections of the game that stand out when compared to others?

David Gomez

(You)r shitposting aside, you're better off saving that money or buying a real gaming machine like building your own PC

Ryder Murphy

That is true. I really should invest in one soon. I'm afraid that I'm pushing my luck with mine.

Josiah Garcia
Josiah Garcia

get a ps4
comes with a proper controller
get a switch
comes with tiny blocky controllers
have to spend an additional $70, $10 more than every other controller available, just to get a proper controller

the price is just one piece of the bullshit pie

Zachary Ward
Zachary Ward

fuck off, i love you, but no. why would I lie on a christian image board. I make my own money and am currently really wanting to buy a product..but..i've fucked up and bought a ps vita and 3ds before...i'm just here for answers

Owen Myers

I find it ridiculous the controllers are pricy.

aint the price for ps4/xbox one controllers the same? granted. the "extra" ones aint included

Ryder Perry

Yet walmart made an entire section where the eshop cards use to be.

Aiden Murphy

Even $60 is outrageous.Honestly, when I think about how much money my parents spent on extra controllers for my consoles back in the day, it sickens me. I've always thought they were around $20 or $30. But fucking $50 and up? That's about as much as a video game. That just shouldn't be.

Owen Jenkins
Owen Jenkins

granted the nub controllers are "viable"
but I'd spend 50 on a decent controller if I can play decent games, hell I got ps4 controllers for pc. yaaaay ff7... lol

Nicholas Taylor

yeah it's a shitty arguement to say "b-b-b-but they're only a little bit more on the other consoles"
you're basically required to buy one if you want to be any good at splatoon 2.

Asher Martin
Asher Martin

not rich at all. I live by myself, 900+ a paychck, twice a month depending on overtime. I made extra by buying a vehicle, fixing it, and selling it, lol

Gabriel Campbell

I wish I could add to this conversation, I've heard time and time again the pro controller is the bees knees

Carson Watson
Carson Watson

It's a $10 difference. Would be different if Switch Pro controllers were around $100. Either way you're spending the same amount of money as you would on a video game. The fact that people think it's okay to spend $60 on a controller, but think $70 is a crime is just fucking ludicrous. They're both expensive as fuck, one being more, but that doesn't make the other okay.

Camden Nguyen

I'm a fucking mechanic. Don't ever become one. People will "fix their own cars" fuck it up, then bring it to you to fix their mistake, happens at least 5 times a week. steer clear of german vehicles

Wyatt Butler

BotW is incredible but you can emulate it
Odyssey is a huge disappointment. If you're not expecting anything out of it, you might get more out of it, but for the love of god taper your expectations or you'll be shit on
MK8 is great. Whether you played it on Wii U already or not I don't know though

Honestly that's all the Switch has worth mentioning, and that's all it will have for the foreseeable future. Metroid Prime 4 probably not until 2019 at earliest

Isaiah Kelly
Isaiah Kelly

I don't understand why people bother to try and fix their cars when they don't know what the fuck they're doing. They're not afraid of breaking anything? Attaching the wrong parts together? I tell ya, I don't pretend to be a handyman, I know I'm not. I can screw in a lightbulb, and that's the end of it.

It's a good game but from the perspective that 3D Marios are among my favorite games, it's disappointing. It's no where near as good, about in the same ranks as 3DL and 3DW

Just my opinion

Switch is a great console, with great games, but there's a reason you only listed 3 of them OP: There are only three great games. Nintendo has some of the best exclusives on the market, but because they trade processing power for gimmicks, their library is practically empty. You're buying the switch exclusively to play Mario, Zelda, and some very old ports from other systems you should already have.

Julian Russell
Julian Russell

Plastic in the console warping under normal conditions
only 32GB or onboard storage so you'd be lucky to hold a single full modern game
Small game library
downgraded ports
lack of proper controllers
poorer graphics than other consoles (if you even give a shit about that kind of thing)
poor prospects for 3rd party exclusives.

Hudson Baker

Easton Butler

Hunter Butler

splatoon 2 is aids, so is rabbids and so is arms
BOTW and Odyssey are great, FE:Warriors is good if you like musoushit, xc2 is good if you like JRPGS
2018 looks pretty dry so far besides the bayo ports and kirby
overall i'd say its worth it but don't fall for the shovelware, a lot of people will overrate nintendo exclusives (like splat 2, a 3/10 game) because it's nintendo
if you don't have a wii u its definitely worth it. if you do and you really want to play odyssey or BOTW or XC2, go for it.
