    Grammar pedantry ahoy: "Each player is using a single Joy-Con", I think. Both players using a single controller looks more like this:

    I'm going with it being commentary, myself.
    If I ever do get around to buying a Switch, and then end up getting Zelda, I'm actually pretty sure I'll end up with a shiny turd for my efforts. I'm exactly the sort of person who'd enjoy pottering around, following whatever the quest indicator is, for an hour or two's play session...

    @Roto13 I still don't trust them not to patch in a real world currency purchase for gems after the reviews have mostly dropped. That's Konami for you.

    Zelda's not remotely a system-seller for me (2D Zeldas are the good ones), neither is Mario Odyssey (Mario 64 changed the movement physics in ways my brain still fails to deal with). Without those, Switch just looks like a bigger Vita with an even more anaemic library.
    I mean, best of luck to those of you who get along with those games, but I'm really not feeling any more compelled by the Switch than I was by the picked-one-up-just-after-its-successor-was-announced WiiU.

    @link6616 Same. I found the UI a chore, everything seemed to be really slow and took an awfully long time.
    I liked the game, I just couldn't at all be bothered to actually play it, even back in the early 2000s.
    Some kind of modernised but largely untouched remake would be most welcome.

    @nadiaoxford I worry that the utter garbage that is the modern memory card market will have a detrimental effect on the Switch.
    Vita had proprietary cards, sure, but the system's loading times are appalling even with those. Trying to imagine a Vita's loading times scaled up to games ten times the size doesn't bear thinking about.

    @VotesForCows Probably some kind of loan. "We'll pay your $1000 fee for $1050 of your first $10500 of income" sort of thing.
    Personally, I think a lot of indie games are going to get charged $100-$200 for simple "Okay, you're on Steam now, bye!" access, whereas the major publishers are going to get charged $5000 for being given preorder and release-date advertising on Steam's landing page, that sort of thing.

    "For all of the design tenants"
    Design tenets, yeah?

    @Stepout On the flipside, the first option —banning all alternative input devices— is so manifestly stupid that the second option —which is not actually a difficult option, just an unconventional one— becomes more obviously the sensible option.
    Putting that, terrible, option forward at all is a bargaining ploy because it presents a choice between two options, when there are actually more than two. It's just framing the argument.
