I'll let you know. I'm going to cancel it in the next hour or two if nobody bites. Everything's at cost. I don't care how it's split up as long as it's $330 total + shipping (my cost).

Very much interested in this, even though every year so up to 2k16 has been a popcorn fart.

I guess it went enough time without any new posts so it auto closed.
It looks like to play online you and the other person have to each enter some kind of code. And the update file is 2.1GB. There's a couple other fixes included in the patch too

What's lame? They got it up and running. ARMS plays really well online, as does MK8D for me.

But I am waiting for the mother of all online games, coming in less than 2 weeks!

I do really want to get a Switch, but there's really nothing I don't already have on Wii U that I want on Switch until (possibly) the Rabbids game, definitely Mario Odyssey. I'd rebuy Zelda and MK8, but I'd need at least a B2G1 sale ($40 ea).

Is there any store you can get your hands on one? I still think it looks uncomfortable, possibly more so than the 3ds xl, and with controller prices I'd probably have to go 3rd party.

If I get a neon system, I'd be interested in swapping the blue joy con for an equivalent yellow if anyone I'd interested.

I really like the blue/red combo.

The games I am playing the most recently in local MP is ARMS, NBA Playgrounds, and PPTetris, so for me the Switch is a must. Also the battle modes on MK8D.

Then we have Splatoon 2 coming out in 10 days, that is a must buy.

I can't stand it in handheld mode, it's very awkward to hold, imo. Mine is always played docked, with the awesome Pro controller.

I play mine almost exclusively handheld, and that's the exact opposite of how I intended to play it when I pre-ordered. Not uncomfortable for me whatsoever (big hands) and helps when someone else wants to use the TV.

To each his own, man. I still play mine 90% in handheld. Most of the time that I play docked is multiplayer games.

Handheld mode all the time except when we do local MP, then I have 4 Pro controllers.

6'2" 255 Lbs. It just feels too big. I thought the VITA was pretty big, but it still felt good in my hands. The Switch just feels really uncomfortable to hold and try to play a game. The Pro controller is so damn comfortable. That and the DS4, are the only thing that don't seem to make my hands cramp.

huh, strange. I'm not much taller than you are and handheld mode is the only way I play. My younger brother (who's about 6'2" 275lbs) and I even played MK8:D with those little joycon controller things and even that was fine for us.

Yeah, I'm 6'2/6'3 and 300ish, and it feels just right. It did take a bit of getting used to though. I admit I prefered the pro controller at first. Sometimes, aiming while holding down the left trigger can feel a little awkward, but that's about my only complaint.

Having now played with it in a few configurations, I think how I prefer to play depends on how long I'm playing. For a couple of hours or less, portable works for me. I can go past this, but it starts to feel more cumbersome after too long.

If I'm going long-term, give me the joy-cons on a grip. After 7 hours with Blaster Master Zero, I was still hitting the wrong button for the menu and cursing the d-pad on a classic controller. This classic controller has, in my experience, the worst d-pad I've ever used.

BM Zero definitely highlights some failures of modern D-pad developments, and this game in particular where direction is absolutely key, I definitely had several mis-steps that I wasn't seeing in, say, Cave Story+... That said, the 360 D-pad that everyone screeches is the worst thing invented ever, I rarely have any issues with. I can roll Shoryukens and jam in Ninja Gaiden, Stage 3 in Battletoads, no problems whatsoever. For hours.

The Wii Classic controller, on the other hand, I have issues similar to what you're describing, but only with NES games on the NES Classic so that may be an NES Classic thing. No problems whatsoever with the D-pad on the SNES controller.

Yeah, the d-pad, is my only complaint with the Pro controller. Try to hit one direction, you can accidentally hit 2 or 3 instead.

Would playing Puyo Puyo Tetris on the joycons count? If so, I had no problem there, and I'd be swearing much faster there at an erroneous direction.

Nope, sorry. I just haven't really ended up using the second dock much, and I pre-ordered the pink/green controllers a while back from Japan, so I won't be needed these anymore.

I dunno.

I haven't owned a hand held before this since the original Gameboy. I just pick it up and play with it how you'd think and it totally feels fine, and not weird. I played Zelda 95% handheld, and ARMs handheld on single player or online matches etc.

I have moderate carpal tunnel, you might too. I finally got around to getting surgery on my left hand which was worse, no more numbness and tingling when playing switch! Getting my right hand done in September. Surgery is a last option unless it comes to playing video games.

Possibly. .it never bothers me with a controller,, if I'm alone on the weekend it's not unusual to play for 8 or 10 hours at a time and it's not a problem. .but maybe just way you have to hold a handheld look down at it. I agree surgery is awful but not playing games if thats your passion which it is would be worse.

It was ok. It's basically what I've expected all along, Splatoon 1 with new maps/weapons/etc. I really like the strafing ability, but it only comes with that 1 weapon. I wish that ability was across the board, and they had added in some other new movements like that. That would make the game feel fresher. I'm REALLY let down by the music so far. Splatoon 1 had an awesome soundtrack, but everything I've heard in Splatoon 2 so far is pretty meh. I really got my fill of Turf Wars in Splatoon 1, so I don't see myself playing it that much this time around. I'm excited to get back into ranked modes though.

No motion controls... I still hope so though.

The interesting thing about the Switch is that they could make some really high quality 3rd party controllers. Typically, most of them are crap due to the low cost, but they could make a standard price $40-50 controller that would still be way cheaper than the official ones.

I'm still going to want official because Nintendo though. I paid extra to pre-order the pink/green ones a while back. They're supposed to ship this week, I think.

Anyone have the 8Bitdo's controllers? They are half the price and look decent.

I went ahead and bought a Switch since my Walmart finally got some in (two). Still not sure what game to get to hold me over until Mario.

I got the normal SNES 8BitDo controller and love it, but have only been using it for Steam or emulation. I feel like I'd need the NES model with the two joysticks to really enjoy it on the Switch.

Oh. I've only played that and Mario Kart so far. Kinda got bored with Mario Kart and quit playing. I currently have Cave Story +, Bomberman, and I Am Setsuna, still sitting here, unplayed. I also need to go back to playing Zelda sometime. I needed a break from it, and haven't been back to it yet.

What's the best cheap, discrete carrying case? Any other accessaries a must? Obviously a screen protector and sd card. Anything else really nice to have? Holding off on a pro controller for now. Too pricey.

I don't have a carrying case, as i'll likely never take it on the go. This seems to be the hot case that people are getting: https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

When you do get a Pro controller, the thing is awesome, minus the d-pad. The freaking battery lasts roughly 40 hours, off of one charge.

Jackbox Party Packs 1 and 2 are coming to the Switch. Awesome news. Fibbage and Drawful are 2 of the best party games around.

I bought the NES one with the four buttons and two analog sticks. Felt cheap (the sticks in particular are junky), buttons didn't have good feedback. Want to get my hands on the Super Famicom controller, that one looks proper to me.

Who had the SD cards, and (if you) do you still have one for sale or trade?

The Switch's online app is out now for iOS and Android.


Do I need to use the Nintendo Switch Online app to play games online?

The Nintendo Switch Online app provides additional features, such as voice chat and the ability to send user invites over social media, but it is not required to play Splatoon 2 online.

Can I invite anyone or just friends to play online and chat?

When creating rooms and inviting users, you can invite friends you have from Nintendo Switch, friends you communicate with over social media or messaging apps, and other users you have recently played with through the Nintendo Switch Online app.

In addition to this, users must be age 13 years of age of older to use the Nintendo Switch Online app.

Can I use the app to voice chat with other players when not playing a game?

No. Players are not able to start voice chat communication until they have joined the Online Lounge within Splatoon 2.

Can I use the Nintendo Switch Online app on multiple smart devices?

If you would like to change devices, you can sign into a new device using your Nintendo Account. However; it is not possible to use voice chat on two or more smart devices at the same time if they use the same Nintendo Account. Each user would need to use his or her own Nintendo Account in order to voice chat with each other.

Can I use a headset or headphones for voice chat?

Yes. You are able to use headsets or headphones connected to your smart device. If using a wireless Bluetooth headphone or headset with your smart device, ensure it supports the HSP or HFP Bluetooth profile.

Please note that game sounds normally output from the TV or Nintendo Switch console will not be heard from your smart device.

If I use my smart device's other features (texts, social media, etc.) will I be disconnected?

The voice chat will disconnect while you're talking on the phone or using another application, but your voice chat will restart in the same room once you open the Nintendo Switch Online application again as long as the game session is still ongoing.

How do I set Parental Control restrictions?

The service can be used by Nintendo Account holders who are age 13 and older. Because the app runs on your smart device, it cannot be controlled by the parental controls offered in Nintendo's ecosystem. To set restrictions for use of the Nintendo Switch Online app, please refer to your smart device settings.

I don't see it in the App Store. What is the app called?

Nintendo Switch Online. I found it by going to an app like super Mario run in the App Store and then clicking on Nintendo Co. Ltd and it brings up all the official Nintendo apps.

Downloading it now. Seems pretty specific to Splatoon at this point.

One thing I hope is that they have a Party feature, similar to Xbox Live. It says in the FAQ that you can't chat outside of the Platoon game lobby. I like having a party chat outside of the game servers so if you get disconnected, switch games, decide what to play, etc. then you are still in the chat.

By the way, there's pretty much nothing in the app except the Splatoon-specific service.
