I finally got one! I finally got my hands on a Nintendo Switch. The journey to get one was not a easy one, but I found the very last Switch in the very last store in my city.
I brought two games to go along with the Switch for now. I got Puyo Puyo Tetris, and Kamiko. Both games cost $35 on the eshop and I still have $5 left :). The Switch is very comfortable in my big hands. It’s much more comfortable to hold than my 3DS is right now, but I haven’t done any serious gaming sessions on it yet so that could always change.
The Joycons are actually quite good in my opinion. At first I thought my hands would tower over the controller, but they don’t. It’s still a small controller (for me), but it’s a comfortable one and I’ve been able to play comfortably in both games on both TV, and handheld mode.
I’m not liking either game that I purchased for my brand new console. That’s a big letdown because those two games killed my excitement for owning a Switch. I wanted to buy Has-Been Heroes, but I listened to my wife and brought Puyo Puyo Tetris instead for $30 and that only left $10 left on my account. I won’t be able to buy a new game until tomorrow. This game would be fun if it wasn’t so hard to learn. The npcs in this game don’t take it easy on you at all. I’ve only one one or two matches in the hour that I played. The story mode is interesting, but I’m not willing to try and clear multiple lines of Tetris blocks in 2 minutes because I don’t like feeling rushed.
Kamiko… is better than Puyo Puyo Tetris, but not by much. I’m not enjoying this game at all. I was really looking forward to playing it because it looked really cool. I watched some gameplay and loved the soundtrack. I thought I would love this game, but I don’t. I don’t feel like jumping back into either of these games. The gameplay in Kamiko is crap. I know that it’s a throwback to games of yesteryear, but it just feels cheap. Well… it is only $5 so I guess I got what I paid for.
I’m really happy that I finally got a Nintendo Switch, but I really need to buy a game that I like it for it. I wish I could do something on it right now, but there’s no Netflix, or Hulu to keep me occupied until I do get some better games. At least my wife is having fun with Tetris…
What do you think of your Nintendo Switch? Have you played the games I mentioned above? What do you think of them?
