Does anyone have the Switch yet? What games do you have? What do you think so far?
Me: Yes, I’ve got Zelda, Snipperclips, 12 Switch, And Fast RMX (aka Not F-Zero)
Zelda…so far, Wowie-wow-wow-wow! Pretty cool so far. Hyrule is HUGE!!! I haven’t got too far yet though, just to Kakariko village.
Snipperclips: For such a simple game it’s pretty fun as well. Had a pretty good time playing with @thunderb3e.
12 Switch: What can I say? It is what it is…essentially a tech demo/party game. I wouldn’t recommend playing it much at all. Like, dig it out about as often as you would a Monopoly board game, or your Uno cards.
For the tech demo part…it’s pretty impressive. My favorite game so far in that regard is the ball count game. You pretend your Joycon is a box with marbles in it, and rotate it around to figure out how many are in the box. And out of all the “OMG it feels like there’s something in there!!” HD rumble tech demo games in the bunch, THIS one really does feel like there’s marbles inside the joycon rolling around. It’s really impressive. I don’t see how being able to mimic balls rolling around in a box would be useful in any other games, but it’s still pretty awesome.
Fast RMX: Not too shabby for being Not F-zero. It has all of F-zero’s signature features. One thing I do like that’s different though is that unlike F-zero you have no health bar, and instead of recharge strips it has occasional boost pickups. Also crashing is handled like Mario Kart instead of F-Zero’s crash & burn & restart the race.
But yeah, so far the games I’ve played are pretty fun, and the hardware is what it is.
