    @MojoBox I think I'd have a problem with ONLY four dungeons. Granted, this game might be different than most entries with an emphasis on exploration. We'll see. But the dungeons are my absolute favorite part of Zelda. I loved Majora's Mask despite the low dungeon count but that game was also unique in a special way. But Twilight Princess is probably my favorite in the series because I'm all about Arbiter's Grounds and Snowpeak Ruins. MMMPH!

    One thing that isn't talked enough about Splatoon is the campaign. It was very creative and had some really fun boss battles. I don't think the campaign is better than the multiplayer by any stretch of the imagination, but it is really fun in its own right and I'm curious to see what Nintendo does for the sequel.

    Realistically, for $300 ($400 if we count taxes and one game with the purchase) I could buy the entire Steam catalog during their next sale.

    But the main reason I would even consider a Switch at launch is also available on Wii U, a system I game on all the time. Breath of the Wild is not an exclusive and realistically that kind of hurts the Switch for me. I can buy it for $48 brand new on Amazon for Wii U. Why buy the other console when I can just wait for its library to fill out?

    I've owned a Nintendo home console since I started gaming. That won't change since I will eventually buy a Switch as well, but anyone can see this thing is too pricey for a mid-cycle launch, doesn't have guaranteed 3rd party support, and it's killer app is multiplatform. Sure, there will be plenty of folks who buy a Switch that didn't own a Wii U but if enough Wii U owners think like me, it might be some time before those Switch units start moving.

    @night5415 that's irrelevant. I just stated that it could be improved. Nintendo have a history of tweaking their handhelds at least and they may work to improve that aspect of the system in the future.

    The presentation was boring. A total misfire. Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2 (WHY NOT 3!?), Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda all looked great.

    Ok I actually freaked out during the Zelda trailer and damn near sobbed when my angel Zelda started crying (NEVER SHALL YOU SHED TEARS WHILE MY INCARNATION OF LINK LIVES!!)

    But also, I have a Wii U. I don't need to spend $360 to play Zelda. And the battery life for portability could be improved with a future system.

    There's one thing that could make me switch to Switch (I CAN DO IT TOO NINTENDO!!) and that would be if BotW was a marked improvement over the Wii U version. But that's why I read reviews from the pros.

    I'm going to buy the system eventually. Let's be real, Mario, DQ 10 and 11, Shin Megami Tensei V, No More Heroes 3. I'm in. But not at launch. (Unless it really makes sense for Zelda)

    I freaked out for Zelda. It was more than I ever imagined. But if it runs great on Wii U I don't need a Switch yet.

    This game really flew under the radar but I think this and the new Hitman might be the types of games I should seek out.

    I'm digging the Star Wars colors here. Shovel of Hope is hilarious. But this is probably my favorite non-Mario platformer of recent years. Really high quality stuff and a great example of KickStarter content really working out nicely.

    even if new games are shown this year, what are the chances they come out in a timely manner? So far that's been a fairly significant issue for them.

    Meh. I'd rather see sequels to most of these, especially Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon. I'd say a remake of Bayonetta 2 or Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE would be cool just because I'd like for those to be exposed to a larger audience, but Nintendo spending time remastering existing games instead of building on the strengths of those games would be a colossal waste of first party effort.

    I want Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 9, Smash Bros 4 right away. Why waste time with a remake/remaster of those in the first place? Take what's good, remove what's bad, add some new features and HD graphics and I'm sold.
