MFW someone mentions my collection of graphics cards.



A FUCKIN CANARY!! posted:

Walmart still hasn't shipped mine.

I had to use my vacation days to get this weekend off. If this shipment is late, I basically won't get to try out my Switch until next year. Nintendo fucks me again.

I'm glad you learned your lesson

Is the pro controller gonna be rare? I'm about to head to my local best buy to pick up my pre-order and would like one of those.

The Walmart I'm at only got two.

They had 110 preorders and have 9 Switches for non preorder holders. And this is a Walmart in a town of 12,000 people.

Switch is in a delivery centre really close to me now and I got all anxious for nothin (although I was expecting that to be the case tbh). If it comes as part of the regular mail I'll get it before midday. FUUUUUUCK YES

Walmart had some show up online at midnight eastern. I snagged one and got all the way through payment and got a confirmation email. Immediately followed by a cancellation email and a bunch of Fraud alert stuff from my credit union. Seems like charges to Walmart send up the questionable use flag and they held the charges.

I want to be pissed at my credit union as I just found out today that my wife wants to play Zelda, but probably better in the long run they are a little over protective.

Does the ipad use USB C? The charger would have to support the 15v mode.

My backwater Best Buy had like 100 consoles. There were at least 50 people in line, my dumb rear end waiting for like 3 hours for no reason, and then they wheel out an entire cart filled with black and neon switches.

Nintendo likes publicizing long lines as they limit online orders then ship a ton of consoles to stores.

Except the NES Mini. Nobody at Nintendo thought it would outsell 6 months of the Wii U.

Has anybody made a meal out of the Switch cartridges yet? Maybe a Fettuswitch Alfredo or a pastrami sandswitch with a side of fries?

I melted my Bomberman R into a roux and mixed it together to make a pretty kickass gumbo that tastes like chemicals and poo poo.

Picked mine up from Walmart. I was a preorder, and the second preordered one to arrive when I got there at 11, so I was allowed to skip the line and get my system second.

Downloading Zelda. Took about 5 minutes to get to 5%. So that's hopefully... 100 minutes? Dunno if I'll stay up long enough, to be honest. I'm taking tomorrow off anyways.

I'm about to print this on my 3D printer, to see if it functions well with a real unit. (The Ocarina of Time that I started printing since 6pm just finished a couple minutes ago.)

edit: My Walmart was selling games and accessories, but they wouldn't sell them to the preorders until the people who've been waiting in line before us got theirs. Fair enough, we only preordered the system. And I don't mind, I don't plan on getting any other hardware or physical games. My case for the system is arriving today, and my screen protector comes next Friday.

I stupidly went to Gamestop where they sold the console to two twenty something NEETs at 6pm and they were camped in the store until midnight.

Do I really need to say "gently caress Gamestop?"

Still in line outside Best Buy on the east coast. There were 50 non-preorders available, I got 47. First guy in the preorder line left on a bicycle. Second guy was a short old Asian man with at least 7-8 Switches vv

if you got 47 preorders and some other guy 8 preorders than that is more than 50 switches

Have you figured it out yet?


Day One update for the console and Zelda downloaded like super fast, which surprised me.

Console is really neat so far! The kickstand is kinda rear end but it does the job.

Also, in case it wasn't mentioned, it has a Dark Mode theme in the Settings.

Yeah, I bought Bomberman on the Switch (it was $10-15 cheaper than physical) and it downloaded the whole thing quite quickly. Impressed, especially for Day 1.
