  1. Thanks for all the input guys. I do want a switch and I know I'll end up getting one eventually so I think I will go down the route of trading in/selling my Wii U to help keep costs down.


    The real thing holding me back was the price. It's not that I think it's overpriced but that I was trying to justify spending all that money on a console I wasn't sure about.


    I like the increased portability with the switch and there are a couple of games I'm interested in (Fast RMX and Arms).


    Oh and I already have a PS4 :p

  2. So, I've been thinking about whether or not I want a switch and the main draw at the moment is Breath of the Wild. This game is of course available on Wii U so my first question is really: what benefit is there for getting it on Switch instead of Wii U?


    My second question is: besides BotW, what games are currently out that are worth getting? I will accept games that are due to be released within the next month too.


    I like the concept of the Switch but I don't want another Wii U situation. I will mostly be using the Switch as a single player although I'll have a few opportunities for multi-player action too. Is it worth getting now or should I wait for more games and a price drop?


    Is it worth the money now?

  3. The whole lot is overpriced and I've felt Nintendo have been lacking since half way into the Wii's lifespan. I can wait for Zelda (or can always get the Wii U version if not) so I'll probably get one around Christmas if there's a decent price drop and a couple more games I want (also at cheaper prices).

  4. Bought a ps4 on Amazon today so that will arrive tomorrow with some games that I don't want. I'll be trading them in for overwatch tomorrow ;D


    Been playing on PC since release so expect complaints about how controllers are inferior to mouse/keyboard but other than that I'm looking forward to playing with the rest of you :D

  5. Mario Kart 64


    My first N64 game and possibly one that I've played more than any other N64 title. It's definitely the game I've played the most out of all in the series. Something about the track design and the handling just really clicked and I think only Mario Kart DS has come close to repeating it.


    I will still play this iteration when my brother comes over and we go through each GP. Not a single hated track.


    Smash Bros Melee


    Smash Bros 64 was a brilliant breath of fresh air but this game expanded upon the original so well while remaining true to the fundamental gameplay. In Smash 64 I used Kirby exclusively so I was a bit disappointed with the changes made to him in Melee but once I found a main in Falco, I couldn't put the game down. Hours of replayability across multiple game modes.


    This game balanced substance and gameplay perfectly. Even after beating the main game and the challenges you could play them again and again. If you did get bored there was always VS mode against friends or AI.


    I didn't get on with Brawl. Something just felt off about the game. I found the online mode completely unplayable and the gameplay just wasn't the same as Melee so I simply reverted back.


    Smash Bros Wii U/3DS improved on Brawl a lot and the online was actually manageable. I didn't like the changes made to Falco since Melee though and although I found a new character that suited me (Little Mac!). It's probably nostalgia and the fact that I simply had more free time when Melee was released but I sunk way more hours into that game and would opt to play that over any other iteration given the chance.


    Mario Party 4


    This was the first Mario Party released on the GameCube and my introduction to the series. I think I got it as a present which I hadn't asked for but was grateful for it all the same. It was a good game to play with my family but obviously not a game I would really play alone. I only got use out of it once a week when we'd go to my Uncle's house but we'd always have fun with it. I picked up a few later iterations but this is the one I played the most. It's not really a series I care about :p
