I still want to know how you get 6.5 hours out of the original, I can barely even get 2.

A games dude I follow, who is a huge Nintendo fan, postulated that Nintendo always leaves flaws in first gen hardware that can be improved upon (the d-pad, the battery life etc.). It's honestly really annoying.

It's been 2 years since the Switch came out, and it's running a Tegra chipset. I don't think it's bullshit that chip technology has advanced in two years. It would probably cost Nintendo more to not improve battery life with a hardware revision.

I believe that Nintendo does what they need to ensure that we need to upgrade our consoles often. I would too in their place!

I mean, this isn't a real Nintendo account, so... Ymmv
Yeah, I finally caught on that it's fake. I'm just wondering why the fuck this was on my Twitter timeline, then.
..
OH! Someone I follow liked the tweet. Is there any way to stop Twitter from showing me tweets that were liked?

The latest Smash Bros DLC rumor is that the next fighter after Banjo-Kazooie is going to be an SNK character.

Most of the internet thinks it'll be Terry Bogard or Mai Shiranui, but I'd personally like to see Marco from Metal Slug.

Overwatch is coming to Switch?
But is it crossplay capable?
More importantly, how long until an Overwatch character finally shows up in Smash?

I wanted Marco from Metal Slug as an SNK rep, but Terry is fine. I'm just happy they confirmed more DLC fighters for Smash. More chances for some characters I'd like to see make it.

My spouse really wants a Switch. Mostly for the new Animal Crossing game coming out, but also for Luigi's Mansion and a few others. I wouldn't mind having it so I could get Smash and Mario Kart 8. I might be looking at getting one for Christmas, hopefully some stores will have it on sale for Black Friday or something. Any other big games I should think about getting?
Co-op games and light adventure games would be good for the spouse.
My tastes are all over, but I like good story-driven games (Adventure & RPGs, though not JRPGs) and action games mostly.

I can't believe you like adventure/RPGs, but you don't have Breath of the Wild on your wishlist. It's a must!

Fire Emblem Three Houses is so good. This one is pretty easy though, even my daughter can play on Hard and she sucks at video games.

Maddening Difficulty came out for Fire Emblem last night. If you play without new game+ you get a special change to the title screen so I am being a masochist. So far I had to sacrifice 3/5 students to win the mock battle and it took me 23 rounds to beat the chapter 2 mission, so I guess it's a little harder. :p

I played the Mistover demo on Steam, and put it on my wishlist, then realized it's coming out for Switch as well as PC, so I guess I'm going to get it on the Switch instead. Yay handheld!
