All we know is its the next entry in the Main Series, so I would imagine something along the lines of the 3DS games (X+Y, Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire, Sun Moon, Ultra Sun Ultra Moon) only a big boost in graphics.

Again, we won't know for sure till they reveal something.

I'm pleased to say I'm revising my opinion of the Switch. The last quarter has seen a number of 3rd party releases and there's finally more games I want to play than I have time for.

Pinball FX 3 is very good. It lacks some of the tables from the previous Vita edition, but they look a hell of a lot better on the larger screen. Stern Pinball Arcade is decent as well if you like proper pinball, but the presentation is not as good.

Ordered one yesterday, after waiting to see how it fared in its first year. Picked up Mario Odyssey for starters.

Any recommendations for indie exclusives in the eshop? I have Blaster Master Zero for the 3ds, which I very much enjoyed.

Golf Story and Snipperclips are good fun.

Golf Story in particular. I don’t like golf and I like golf games even less, but I absolutely adored it.

Yeah, it's more of an RPG than a golf game. The golfing element is kinda fun too, although if you're looking for the next Tiger Woods/PGA Tour game this definitely isn't it.

Oh, that looks right up my alley! I've been playing Everybody's Gold on PS4 religiously, despite not caring much at all for golf games previously.

Anyone played Slime San?

Had the switch since launch day. Still don't know what to make of it despite some inevitably strong first party support.

Got a Switch for Christmas. Zelda is every bit as awesome as people say it is, and I'm particularly enjoying the indie lineup available on Nintendo eShop. Just booted up The Flame in the Flood.

Probably. There are so many people selling fakes on eBay that I just wouldn't get any from there at all.

If you're tempted, still make sure to run something like FakeFlashTest on it as soon as you get it.

Yes that memory card was a fake - eBay shut them down! Got my money back though.

Got my first Switch game - NBA 2K 18. The boxes are diddy! Got my 128gb memory card and have ordered the Pro controller. Now all I need is the actual Switch 😂😂 Goddam John Lewis need to get the Grey version back in stock pronto 😭

Was pleasantly surprised with Golf Story. I'm not at all into sports games, but picked it up after a co-worker kept bending my ear about it. Strikes a very nice balance. I, too, found it thoroughly enjoyable.
