I see what they're doing... but why couldn't they have lifted the cartoony modern military vibe as well? I guess it's alright. :?
Also, holy crap, the switch is out this Friday? Maybe I'm not in the right hype circles, but that crept up with little fanfare.

You're in the wrong circles. There's plenty of hype about, but it's admittedly been a little truncated given the console was only announced 4 months back.

There were a few good indie games in there that I'm sure to buy at some point. There is the possibility that Enter the Gungeon will be coming to switch too, the developer has been teasing an announcement of both their first Switch release and one for Gungeon at roughly the same time.

Edit: k, yeah, EtG has been confirmed on the company's Twitter. https://mobile.twitter.com/DodgeRollGam ... 5733196800

Warbits on iOS is the closest I've found to Advance Wars

The Switch will still use Friend Codes, however it is now limited to one per user rather than one per game. I can sort of understand why they persist with them, but it's still not that user friendly. If you think about it it's only slightly different to how Blizzard deal with it as they add a numerical number to your username. It's just very hard to remember a 16 digit code.

I guess it means people can all use the username they want.

Mine was just sent..... still dont know if I'll open it :lol:

Also ordered no games because Ive not bought a boxed game in years. Wonder how big a mistake that'll be!

Alllllso.... kind of more interested in playing 1-2-Switch than Zelda ¬____¬

Well you'll doubtless end up paying more for them on the e-shop; it doesn't look like the pricing is going to be especially generous.

I now have the money to buy one, but only if I consent to my wife getting a second kitten.

Both have excellent haptic feedback, so that makes sense.

There really is no reason to say no to that.

In fact, I'd rather get the kitten and not bother with the Switch.

Zelda looks so fantastic though. Bit dubious about getting it on Wii U seeing as nobody has reported how it performs yet.

I would normally not baulk, but our flat is rather small.
