    It would be fun if there was a way for the Switch to work as the WiiU Gamepad when playing WiiU games on your TV... I mean, maybe this is already a thing, but it's essential for many of the WiiU's games.

    Also, hope you can transfer saves in Minecraft from WiiU to Switch.

    Microsoft's support is absolutely superb. Due to Forza Horizon 3 on PC being a buggy piece of crap, I wasted hours getting it working and dealing with the issues. After one crash too many (during a video cutscene, no less!) I applied for a refund and it was granted. I immediately put the credit towards Gears 4. Microsoft are really trying and it is really appreciated in convincing people!

    Uniforms in looking uniform non-shocker.

    Also, whining about "there's more holidays than Christmas" with the amount of stuff Lunar New Year got? Really?

    Tales from the Borderlands bored me. As an avid, old school adventurer (Sierra and Lucasarts and Infocom) I found that I was sitting and watching cutscenes filled with mediocre writing and animation. The few sequences where you could actually walk around and look at stuff were over almost before they began.

    That it's held up as the best just convinces me to not bother with any of the others - I've tried a few demos and in every instance it seems like Telltale can take any franchise and make it *boring*. Wallace and Gromit, Sam & Max. Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the best and most fun films of recent memory and I'm sure they'll find a way.

    Life is Strange was vastly superior in my opinion.

    @Nazo That would be true, except I was sufficiently switched off by the Xbox One to buy a gaming PC again instead. Would not want to pay almost a grand just so I can play in Microsoft's walled garden again as opposed to with my nicely modded PC games.

    Sitting on the floor at Yorkdale all night is not my idea of fun.

    Just brought across my team from Pokemon Y so this is perfect timing! Thank you!

    My new home means I can't play my 3DS on the way to work any more (no seats on the subway where I get on now, and nowhere to lean and use both hands). Back in the day I had it perfectly timed to get a floor sweep done of an Etrian Odyssey dungeon.

    I can't imagine using a Switch in that role anytime soon - part of what I love about the 3DS is how rugged it is... slap the lid shut and it's protected enough to throw in your bag in a hurry.

    It's a shame that Nintendo isn't doing backward compatibility, but just last night we were buying a WiiU secondhand on Kijiji and something struck us about all the ads: they had maybe three or four WiiU games, and then a TON of Wii games. The Wii's best games were so good, people would keep them forever. Bad news for Nintendo, who need to sell games. Could you imagine if the Switch took 3DS cartridges, never mind Wii games? Nobody would buy anything beyond the new Zelda.
