Seems crazy Nintendo got the #1 and #2 console for the April NPD results. What is happening? :lol:

NINTENDOMINATION, that's what! :oops: Been a while since I've heard that.

A green-and-pink-and-splatted controller sounds atrocious... but there's something about this that just works :shifty: .

They should have gone with a fully Black controller and have the neon paint splats all over it.l

On paper it shouldn't work... but I quite like it!

There is also going to be a set of Splatoon joy-con released (left green, right pink) and they look kinda neat, too. Oddly, the Japanese Splatoon 2 console pack will get this design included but the European version will get the neon blue / red controllers instead. The Splatoon-coloured versions will then arrive here in the autumn.

Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack coming to Switch



The Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack contains both Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, two of our flagship games that originally made their home on the Nintendo 3DS. With the release of the Switch version of the Striker Pack, there are a host of new features, improvements, and bonus content that make it the truly complete version of the Azure Striker Gunvolt experience. Let’s take a look at what’s in store!

Never played any of the Gunvolts on 3DS so I'll be in for this, hopefully it will get a physical release as well.

I've not played it before either, Milner. It looks pretty neat although it does have the appearance of a game designed for the 3DS' smaller screens(s).

I haven't heard of this before, but Nine Parchments looks cool. It is being made by Frozenbyte, the team behind the Trine games.

I've had my Switch for three weeks today. So.. what is my current thinking about the Switch?

+ I really enjoy being able to play both on my TV and in portable mode; it's more useful than I had expected and the ease of "switching" is fantastic
+ I like using both the joy-con and the Pro Controller. My preference is to use the joy-con for portable mode and the Pro Controller with the TV; but both are comfortable and work well
+ Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is excellent. As an owner of the Wii U version I was dubious about getting it again, but it's a terrific package; the new Battle mode, DLC inclusion and improved 1080p display output are lovely
+ Zelda... just! It does run slightly smoother than the U version but there isn't a lot in it. Still a terrific game, though. Even though I have barely played it :oops:
+ The system software works really quickly...
- ...but that is because it is stunningly basic:
> The console desperately needs some form of user communication! You can make friends but there is barely any purpose for doing so at the moment. I have been playing some Kart tournaments on my Switch... arranging them via comms on the Wii U and then messaging folk about the results on the U afterwards :fp: :lol:
> The eShop isn't anything like as attractive as the U version. It can get away with it at the moment because there isn't much in it, but I'd imagine enhancements must be in progress
> Why have we got Nintendo Accounts, NNIDs, Switch IDs and Friend Codes? It's an absolute spaghetti junction of identities and passwords. Once you're setup it's straight-forward, but it is still messy behind the scenes
> Why is MyNintendo not integrated into the Switch?


Overall, I'm glad to have jumped on board and I love using the console. I just hope the system software enhancements arrive sooner rather than later.

Presumably the communication stuff is all coming in the voice chat app.

Was just thinking the other day that I need an Arms demo to see what it's like as I'm not 100% sold on it and lo and behold there's a demo on the eShop ready to download for it starting next weekend.

You could be right, Maf. I'm open to seeing how that works but also a little apprehensive. I don't have a smart phone (but I guess it'll work on my iPad?) and, to be honest, I think I'd rather communicate with pals via the console anyway.
