Eh. Still waiting on Nintendo to show me even a single reason why I should want a Switch.

Dark Souls Remastered? Why even think about getting it on the Switch when it's going to run twice as good on PS4? If I want to play 30 FPS Dark Souls, I'd just stick to the PS3 version.

Ys VIII? Wooh, another port of a game that will have released on PS4 nearly a full year before releasing on Switch.

And more ports of Wii U games. YAWN.

God, when Nintendo said they were going to go all-in on third party support, I was expecting NEW and EXCLUSIVE games, not ports of games that released on other systems well before they go to Switch. Still waiting. I'm tired of the only argument being, "u shud git dem on switch cuz take on go."

And before anyone jumps on me, no, I'm not just bashing Nintendo or the Switch. Yes, I've voiced these opinions a lot. That's because I'm frustrated with Nintendo for failing to provide me any reasons to be excited for the Switch. I want Nintendo to delivery and give me a reason to want a Switch, like I wanted a SNES, N64 and Gamecube, but they just haven't yet. The only exclusive third-party RPG that's even slated for the Switch is that Octopath Traveler or whatever. Other than that, every RPG that the Switch has gotten has been a port of a game that's been on PS3/PS4/Vita/Steam for a year+. It's frustrating to me, which is why you see me vent about it a lot. I'm just waiting for Nintendo to give me a reason, but so far they just haven't been able to.

Just do SOMETHING Nintendo. Stop just getting ports. Go out there and get those third-party exclusives.

Wii U ports I don't mind because I'd rather see those games get a second chance on a decent console people are actually buying instead of being doomed to a system the majority never really gave a shit about and is no longer in production because of that.

I do agree though that the ports are becoming a little tiresome at this point. It just feels like the PS4's first year all over again for me, where it felt like everything was getting a port and started feeling like they were getting a bit too much focus over what a new system should be offering instead.

Glad to see Luigi getting something for Odyssey. Even if very minor. He needed to be there somewhere. :XD: Also, a good moment with Donkey Kong high-five smacking the Peach Rabbid out of the picture. :lol:

Although it's good for Wii U games and other older games to get ported over to the Switch, there needs to be more new interest. The mini direct was a nice start to the year, so looking forward to any big announcements later on.

The Balloon DLC for SM:O looks like it'll be fun for a while, until every one gets bored with it until the next thing online gets released. XD I never played 'The World Ends With' as it looked like a game I wouldn't care for. Even now I'm 'meh' with it.

Tbh, I was kind of surprised to see Ys VIII: LoD release to the Switch. I played the PS4 demo & I wasn't very impressed with it. :/
