    A meteorite hits Link and the impact kills everyone else. The end.

    I don't plan on getting the switch since I bought the new 3ds a couple months after it came out and I don't want to buy another system just for a few switch exclusives. Seeing Voez on switch almost made me reconsider though.

    If you look there's going to be way more then a few...

    BTW bought the Switch yesterday, and got zelda good game. I could have bought it on the Wii U, but as I wanted a switch anyways I figured might as well buy it there so I can take it with me instead of being tied down to 1 room.

    I'll say it is not your typical zelda, and the combat sorta reminds me more of skyrim, and the infatuation with high places you have to climb reminds me of Assassins Creed games.

    What about the Wii U?
    If you want to talk library for a home console I own more Wii U games (over 18 physical, and a few digital) then on any other home console since the Atari 2600. There were also some I didn't get that I wanted as when they came out I was broke.
    I will be honest Nintendo did drop the ball on the advertising of the Wii U as I met people not that long ago that love video games that never heard of it... If I was a marketing professor in college I would use Nintendo's marketing of the Wii U as the poster child for how not to market a system(kinda like how Nintendo didn't market it at least in the US ;))

    You also realize that if the switch don't sell companies won't make games for it right?

    I'm not going to lie, the first thing I did when I opened my BOTW box was lick the cartridge. It wasn't something that'd make me drop on the floor in pain, but it was certainly bitter enough to make me want to get the thing off of my tongue. It's amazing what an efficient bitterant they choose for this.
    and by the timei can afford that im sure i could just emulate a wii u

    Last I checked, the progress towards a Wii U emulator was sub-par. They had models rendering, but engines were very buggy. But that was like a year ago, so maybe it's better now?

    I've yet to invest in a switch for several reasons (the price tag is a lil hefty for me rn, I'll probably wait until the console becomes outdated and cheap, I'd need a bit more in the way of games to justify purchasing) but from what I've seen in reviews and gameplay of BoTW it looks promising and like a really enjoyable game!

    I am also interested in getting a Switch but what other games are there at the moment? Do you think it might be better to wait and see what else comes out?

    I Am Setsune, which plays a lot like Chrono Trigger is out right now. Snipper Clips is a fun little puzzle thing. Can't think of anything notable aside those two, so if you're on the fence even with Zelda considered you should probably wait.

    Forgot bomberman, Disgea 5 (can be downloaded from japan in english... US release in a month or 2 dunno why it wasn't a day one game along with 5 others that are on the japan e-shop in full english), Blastermaster zero (remake of the old NES game) are what I find noteable right now.

    MK8, splatoon2, Mario odyssey and a few other big games coming in the next few months.

    Yea if you want to go by a gaming forum I frequent the people there have been saying 3-4 months for a properly working emulator for the past 4 years lol

    Oh I forgot those other launch titles. But still, if the launch line up doesn't interest you, you should wait for something you really want because console supply is pretty much 0 right now.

    That's with every emulator though. Over optimistic estimations are the norm.

    Zelda is the main Switch point for me but Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart do look pretty interesting. Any news of a Mario Party yet?

    Atelier Firis does come out in a little bit so I think I might be on the Playstation for a little while haha.

    Ohh I know that I was just saying that to show how silly of a reason it is to wait.
    Hell I'm still waiting for a functional Dreamcast emulator ;)

    I played this game so much and beat the main story in about a week. Pretty intense stuff, but I still got a lot of side quests to do. This game is definitely worth all the 10/10's it got, y'all should get this game if you have the systems for it.

    I've put like 30-40 hours in, and only beat 2 of the beasts

    Did find out today you can dynamite fish as I was so fed up with trying to catch fish by chasing them in the water I threw a bomb at the fish, and saw it float. Then I was like HMM hit detonate, and saw all the fish come to the surface stunned/dead ready to be picked up :D
    The game is just nuts in what they allow you to do, and what isn't documented for you to find out.

    I started doing this as soon as I got the bombs. Free freaking food.

    I got a Switch and Zelda at launch. Well, I got Bomberman, too, and had been playing that while I waited for Zelda to arrive in the mail.

    So far, I really like the Switch! The hardware is pretty impressive (I'm surprised by how small everything is, and yet the Joy-Cons are still comfortable to use). The OS and stuff is really responsive (which is a nice change after being used to the slow 3DS and Wii U menus).

    Zelda is... just so amazingly huge. I've been playing since launch, and I still don't feel anywhere near 100% completion. It took me a few days just to unlock all parts of the map!

    I've also purchased SnipperClips and Shovel Knight digitally. I'm hesitant to buy more digital games, since for some reason, it isn't allowing me to save my credit card for future use (like I could on 3DS and Wii U, hmm...).

    I haven't messed with any emulation in years, but last I checked nullDC was really good. And this was several years ago, on an older laptop. s:

    Still gotta get bomberman kinda had big medical expenses the day after which put the kibosh on my spending :(

    NullDC from what I remember didn't have proper controller support as I believe I tried it, but couldn't get my DC controller to work under it(I have a DC to USB conversion box somewhere)
