    I've seen some retro games on the Switch. Unfortunately it seems as if Nintendo has decided not to put a separate category for retro games on the Switch's e-shop.

    Although, for whatever reason, the most recent update for the Switch allows it to "see and run" the Gamecube controller device from the WiiU if you plug it in.

    That's not really the same as the Virtual Console we've had in the past. It is more a carrot to toss Nintendo twenty bucks for their online service.

    Nintendo does Nintendo. It's amusing that Microsoft and Sony are obsessing over 4K and VR while Nintendo is going to make a killing with fucking cardboard. My 8 year old self would have loved this.

    Here's the (much, much shorter) announcement video from Nintendo.

    I love the Switch. Zelda was great, Bayonetta is better than ever (as is 2) and I simply cannot wait for Death Road to Canada to release so I can play it with everyone I know anywhere, for the first time ever. That game is seriously made for the Switch.

    My biggest wish is for either GTA V or the new Berserk game to head over there. (So many other Musou games, why not Berserk? Free it from Sony's kidnapping). GTA V was also developed for the PS3 and it runs fine on it. I'm sure the Switch could do it.

    The only thing I dislike about it is the lack of variation in regard to 'dockable' shells that you don't have to remove each time.

    Wolfenstein 2 has also made it over... So there's a few variations of games that aren't pure Nintendo. Yay.

    I've got Pokken DX for my sons birthday next week. Though no one in the house has touched the Switch in at least a month. :eek:

    Nintendo has a sense of humour as Nintendo Cardboard comes out on 4-20 in the USA.

    Sites like Etsy will render the Labo obsolete after a week, if it catches on at all.

    You would still need to buy the game otherwise the cardboard is even more useless.

    Really? I read 4-20. That's no fun.

    Really. Couldn't believe it myself. Did a double take. Didn't think it would be out so early.

    I was thinking it be a summer time thing, 10 year olds could color their cardboard. Spring showers would really bring down the cardboard. :lol:

    I finally got myself a Switch along with Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Doom. I love them all. This is a great little console that packs a punch. I can't wait for E3 this year.

    Finally got to try out a Switch recently. Tried to play some Super Mario Odyssey. Liked the full controller charging grip as it made the joycons into one solid controller. Much easier to use and I can concentrate on playing a game instead of focusing on the joycons.

    Nintendo has a Direct this morning at 10am EST for Smash Bros. They announced a crapton of stages, music tracks, game modes, and, of course, a few new characters.
