Alright, the Switch is out. Anyone else out there get one?

I got mine on launch day, as has become my Nintendo fanboy tradition since the launch. It is barebones right now for sure and needs SOMETHING - at least get some Netflix on there - but I'm all in just for the Zelda. And Zelda is amazing.

Besides being amazing, I took the Switch in my car for the 40 minutes or so I waited to pick up my daughter from school on launch day and played a full-fledged beautiful Zelda. Love.

Also Snipperclips is entirely worth it.

After a string of buying Nintendo handhelds at launch, I skipped the Switch. It looks like it will be an excellent system someday and I might get it then. But I already have more to play than I'll ever get to in this lifetime.

(This is not to say I might not do something unwise if I stumble across them at Best Buy with a few gift cards in my pocket.)

I was on the fence about pre-ordering one at launch, but not a Zelda player so decided against it. Def going to try to track one down when Splatoon 2 gets released, though.

I wasn't going to, but then I read the Zelda reviews and the wife surprised me by trying to get one. Ended up getting lucky and snagging one on Amazon Prime Now the Sunday after launch.

So far, I love it. I don't know how much of that is Zelda being awesome, but I'm playing it more then I've played anything in a long time, mostly due to how portable it is. I never took full advantage of the Wii U being able to play some games on just the controller, but with this I'm on it pretty much every night. Take my kid to soccer practice, sit on the sideline playing Zelda. Dinner out, he brings it and we played that snipping game against each other.

So yeah, it needs more games, but I like it so far. The battery life could be better, but that's to be expected.

Finally managed to get a Switch from GameStop. All we have so far is Zelda, 1 2 Switch and the Shovel Knight bundle, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on preorder. I've never been much of a Zelda fan (don't hate me), but this one is my new favorite besides Skyward Sword.

1 2 Switch is complicated if you have terrible reaction times and coordination, but it's still fun. The hardest thing for me with that is NOT looking at the screen. If it ever stops raining, it'll be fun to take that game outside for more space.

The portability is awesome. We just bought the PS4 Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 remix, so we kind of bounce back and forth between that and the Switch, but are still in the same room while we both play. Makes life easier.
