Nintendo Switch

Recommended Posts

I think the Switch needs all the big video apps. I don't get why Nintendo have been so reticent to put them on there, if you're using your Switch as intended, having your Netflix/Amazon/etc with you at all times makes the Switch more worthwhile

I liked it just being a thing that you play games on.

It is if you don’t dl media apps and accidentally keep opening them.

Yeah, apps are good.

 

I use the YouTube one on PS4 a lot since I like watching the better produced things on my TV so I don't think I'll change my habit and use the Switch one, especially since it seems to be identical to the PS4 one.

They'd have to improve the battery before I did anything but game on it. It takes too long to charge too, so you run down your battery watching videos and then it's out of action for hours.

I've been quite impressed with both the battery life and charge time on the Switch. I can normally get two days commute playing between charges depending on the game (graphic intense stuff 1 day, picross about 4 days probably..) and seems to charge from nearly empty to pretty much full in about an hour or so.

@Jimbo Xiii I can get under three hours gaming, but it takes 2 and a half to charge it. It's more convenient for me to do all multi media stuff on my phone (like typing this)! It's only a Moto G6 but it lasts forever and has turbo charging. Then my Switch can do its thing.

 

Then again, Switch is my main gaming console, and since it came out I've played only 2 games on the PS4  (GoW and RDR2). So it's getting a bit of a break at the moment but I generally game on it every day. I can understand how that won't apply to most people, and having some apps might be useful.

I just want them to sort out the licensing so the Ms. Splosionman pinball table from FX2 will be ported to FX3. Same with Plants Vs Zombies and South Park. The legal wranglings really do take a shit on games when it comes t stuff like that.

I saw that on the eShop today.  Not heard anything from Twisted Pixel since that bike game on the XO. 

 

I'm also surprised they aren't planning to do both games but Ms. is a better game.  Loved it on the 360 and will likely get it when I can.  Totally could go through that game.

There is a demo up for Just Shapes & Beats now and I'd seriously recommend some people try it, especially those into Tetris Effect.  It's not a similar game but just one that does a really good job of creating that synesthesia experience.  It's been out a little while I think.  I'd have got it but I'm a poor boy.

 

And play until the boss.  I'd be surprised if it doesn't sell anyone on it.
