4 Years Later: Captain N's thoughts on: Nintendo Switch


Posted on 03/07/2021 at 09:05 PM | Filed Under Blogs

My Switch Lite is my favorite handheld system. The past year was my first with the system and it's been a delight catching up with all the games. It's a godsend for retro titles as well. I noticed that you didn't mention the Switch port of Hades which was fantastic. 

As you stated in the article, I'm not worried that the new Switch model will leave everyone who owns older models in the dust. The install base is too big to ignore. As a Switch Lite owner, I already have to deal with losing access to certain titles because I'm always in handheld mode; I'm not broken up about it. With the library it has right now, it's a solid system already. I don't see myself upgrading when the new model gets released. 

I understand the complaints on the SMB 3D All Stars Collection but as someone who hasn't played those games in a long time (or in the case of Sunshine, not at all), it's a solid collection and it runs great for me. Playing Galaxy in handheld mode is what I've always wanted. Could Nintendo have done more? Yes, but we can't control that. I also suspect the titles will be sold individually somewhere down the line.

The first time I bought one, it had been about a year after release.

A couple of years ago, I was on hard times financially and I had to sell mine just to have money to survive on until the first paycheck from my current job arrived. I don't know why it took me so long to get another one. It's possible that when I got an Xbox One I got sucked into its ecosystem (for lack of better term) to catch up on it. Both are wonderful consoles.

We're friends already. 

I still have my PS3 Slim. Never giving that up.

We're friends already. You and I played some Destiny years ago.

I predict that you'll be borrowing it multiple times. It's a LOT of game.

I've conquered three of the Divine Beasts and I'm holding off on the fourth one because I'm exploring/farming for items to upgrade my armor sets. I actually love starting the game just to explore and forage; it's oddly compelling. I'm also trying to work up the courage to continue the Trial of the Sword side quest so I can upgrade the master sword some more. 

I'll try not to be such a stranger from here on out. ;)

No doubt, glad that ordeal is over for you.

Yikes, how long were you out of water?

I'm already friends with you, Cary!

I'll most likely continue to play it daily like I still do with New Leaf. I only play for 30 minutes to an hour but these games are like comfort food at this point.

That game was ass. So was Raiders of the Lost Ark. My brother and I put up with a lot of lousy game experiences in the Atari 2600 era.
