Switch!

Maybe you’re just supposed to hold it to your face by gripping the joycons, and control the game that with them too?


#1464

that’s so stupid it has to be true


#1465

hoping they’ll release one of these

s-l300

because mine broke a year after I bought it on Meijer clearance for thirty US dollars and I’ve been propping it on couch pillows ever since


#1466

seriously though this is the most Virtual Boy-ass thing they’ve done in years


#1467

I’ve been playing the switch for a while now and I’m still asking myself the same question I had before getting the switch:

Why would anyone ever play the switch docked? I don’t get it


#1468

It would be cute of them to secretly put download codes for Virtual Boy games in the box for this


#1469

by cute i think you mean

utterly essential


#1470

I personally find the form factor terrible for a handheld. Every time I use it this way I get hand cramps. I mostly play docked with an arcade stick (I mostly play arcade archives and such on my switch).


#1471

I just want to play metroid prime on that thing tbh


#1472

I drive everywhere because Ohio, so I have no use for a portable. I’m only ever playing games at home, and if I’m at home, I’m sitting on the couch using my TV rather than being hunched over a tiny screen.


#1473

Multiplayer with actual physical human animals


#1474

it’s nice playing games on a big screen sometimes idk


#1475

I mean, I think this conversation shows how amazing the Switch really is. It’s a perfectly serviceable home console that doubles as a perfectly serviceable portable device, at least for short bursts.

I tend to be 50/50. I play a lot of Tetris/Mario Kart with my wife on the TV, but I play portable when I’m playing solo for the most part so that I am not taking up the TV, or I just want to play for like, 5 minutes at a time.

I’ll also bring the Switch up to the office sometimes and play between tasks.

It’s a good machine.


#1476

I found the kickstand form factor totally unusable when a friend brought theirs by recently but the handheld and the TV connection are no brainers


#1477

I played some rounds of smash bros using the kick stand with my brother recently and it was fine

it’s a definitely flimsy and should be better built but I’ve never had it fall down unless I’m like actively rocking the table that it’s sitting on

I wonder if there’s some variance with how sturdy it is between units


#1478

I just meant that I could not figure out a comfortable height or distance to look at it when it was like that


#1479

yeah I don’t think it works well for extended play of anything


#1480

Ya’ll just don’t have the right peripherals!


#1481

having had a magnifier thingy for my OG Game Boy as a kid, I know that that’s a quick and surefire way to fuck your eyes up, so nothankyou.jpg


#1482

I hope that has a light built powered by plugging it into the USB port
