    I feel you. (Is that said in Australia? I don't want to be misunderstood...) I feel much the much the same way, which is why I haven't bought a Switch yet. That's also why I'm big into retro collecting; a dead console is a limited but known commodity. I don't recall which systems you own, but here a Wii is dirt cheap and most of the games likewise. If you get one that has Gamecube compatibility so much the better. I'm also a big fan of the Virtual Console.

    There are also numerous repro/emulator options. Some of the Genesis/Megadrive repro consoles look pretty neat and play old cartridges. Not sure about your part of the world, but here Genesis games are fairly cheap, in the $8-15 range for most titles. Oddly, most SNES games have jumped in price fairly recently. If you go that route do your homework though, as some of those repro consoles have terrible sound quality.

    I feel you too buddy... now down to business

    I own a red and white Wii both game cube compat and I have a ton of Game cube games. I too like the retro games, some of my prizes are Suikoden and star Ocean 2 on the PS1 and terringma on the SNES.

    Games these days have gone to shit. too many the same. Just too easy. Death has no meaning any more, unlimited lives, unlimited saves. Save anywhere. Rest mode/sleep mode. what happened to skill????

    the Switch was Nintendo's last chance with me. And i was holding out. It was given to me and that is the only reason I have it. I am disappointing that every one raves about this and that when there is in reality nothing really for a gamer to get excited for on this console. The switches to biggest games to date are Wii U ports and the next one seemly being skyrim is also a port. nothing really good or original until Yoshi and Odysee.

    Gamers need to hold Nintendo accountable for this TOY that can not keep up with anything including there own 3DS and say no. Listen to us or disappear.

    They used to be God's but not any more.

    You know, I have considered that. Selling the whole thing as a set, I mean. I don't have every figure and tracking down all the power or expansions is pretty near impossible, but I got a respectable (or shameful) collection. The games are actually fun if kind of basic. It's the damned clutter that gets on my nerves. As games, there is little to no resale value.

    But Disney collectors are weird. I've thought about putting all the figures in a box for 20 years and see what happens. I like the artstyle, the sculpture, all that stuff. It's stylized but still very cool, not unlike a Alex Toth drawing; sort of minimalist, but it gets the job done. Very animation based, where details are conservative. Very Pixar like.

    Fun games overall, but dragging out a box of dolls to play a game is sort of a pain in the ass sometimes.

    Ok drew.

    The Switch is less than 6 months old.

    Did you give up on your kids when they couldn't talk at 5 months old?

    First of all, I had to fulfill Godwin's Law.

    Secondly, if someone continually gives you reason to complain, you're not being pessimistic; you're being realistic.

    Daring to risk getting this thread back on topic...!

    I was getting really annoyed with my limited amount of slots for weapons, etc, and noticed one of you guys mentioned Hestu. I can't believe I must have run straight past the little b*stard at the start of the game! I've finally stumbled on him again and, by way of a bonus, I've collected a tonne of Korok seeds in my exploring!

    Slots a plenty... Good times!

    You should have tried to beat the game with no extra slots.

    I actually enjoyed BOTW, but I never fully beat it. I went to fight Ganon after one divine beast to see what it was like (You just have to fight the bosses of the divine beasts that you skipped before actually fighting Ganon) but I didn't save and then I went back and got all the memories and completed the divine beasts before dropping the game and never coming back to it.

    I totally understand how you feel about the Switch, it's boring and very underwhelming at the moment but hopefully things pick up soon. I haven't contemplated selling it but it's been having issues and warping since April and I've yet to send it in, so you can tell how often I play the thing. Still, I wouldn't really sell it until we get another Direct reminiscent of January 2013's Wii U direct that confirms we're only getting more ports and bad games.

    I like it a lot too, but I'm disappointed it gives the illusion of freedom but doesn't really deliver. So yes, apparently you can fight Gannon straight away, but to fight the divine beasts you have to do so much nonsense first. I don't mind prep in say Monster Hunter, but having to talk to 30 fish people, do a tedious shooting gallery, ride on a goofy fish dude, plus gather the shock arrows first just to be allowed to fight the elephant beast seems at odds with the "open world" approach.

    That's sort of killed my interest in the game right now.

    Plus I'm having a recurring gyroscope problem where I try to aim the bow of whatever and the camera just keeps spinning. I had the same problem with Splatoon but yet in other games such as it works just fine.
