Re: Retro Gamer issue 166

Fun to see my friend Joachim Froholt interviewed and his game reviewed in this issue. :)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Ah! I've got my Switch and have played Zelda for a couple hours, after half an hour with setting up the console and checking all corners of it. Very fun so far.:D Now my wife has got hold of the console and she is trying a Zelda-game for the first time.:D On her own user of course.;)

I saw a scalper trying to sell a new Switch for ~500 pound, but I doubt he succeeded.;)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So has anyone had problems with their pre-orders not being delivered? I've seen a lot of stories of Nintendo UK, GAME, Shopto & Amazon customers being left out in the cold. My best bud pre-ordered his with Nintendo months ago and so far there's been no sight of it. Much to his annoyance, I walked i...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Early reviews are starting to come in...........and they aren't that great. Trying to use it in portable mode with the right stick halfway down does not look comfortable either Early reviews I've seen (and I've seen a few) is mostly positive. There are some kinks, but they're not new. Problems with...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

So the Nindies video hit the internet earlier today. :) Lots of interesting games, some timed exclusives, some real exclusives, some multiplatforms. But the major one for retro enthusiasts I guess, is Blaster Master Zero, coming for Switch and 3DS as a timed exclusive.:D Here's the entire video: htt...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Seeing as Zelda is not sold out yet, I bet you will be able to get a copy at launch.:)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Man, Switch menus are quick at least. Compared to 3DS and WiiU...this is something else.:)

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

One point to consider is that you're speaking from the British point of view. The N64 was popular in the US and we could say that Nintendo has always treated the European territory as an afterthought, focusing on the Japanese and US markets. This was something that their rivals used to their benefi...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Spawn Wave talks about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SEmO33srNk So, no official figures, just a YouTuber's opinion, then? For what it's worth, I don't think we're in for anything like the same sort of shortages that happened with the Classic NES. They've only just managed to ship 1.5 mi...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Do you have a source for that? As best I can find, Sony were claiming 2.1 million PS4 sales at the end of November: http://www.sie.com/en/corporate/release/2013/131203b.html While Nintendo are planning for 2 million by the end of March: http://venturebeat.com/2017/01/31/nintendo-still-aims-to-ship-...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

It's not going to be successful if everyone waits to buy it. :lol: Given the quantities Nintendo are likely to ship on day one, waiting might be the the only option for most people. Except I heard the sales numbers for PS4 for the first whole month was less than what Nintendo is shipping the first ...

You non Scandinavian Nintendo fans don't know how lucky you are. Retail price for Switch starts at 420 USD here, for what Americans pay merely 299 USD for. Meanwhile, PS4 and Xbone retails for almost American price...
