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

Interested to see if you can solve that 4th grade word problem.

Ah Best Buy canada apparently decided to wait just before Launch day to ship. Rather then Ship so it arrives at launch.

This is how I look when I post

Played Zelda while the console update downloaded in the background, then when I got access to the eshop I played co-op Snipperclips (which rules but might be a little light on content for my tastes.)

I died to the first blue Moblin I ran into in Zelda lol

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.

If those dpads work out, I'll buy one off of you

The switch has cooled down significantly after the fan kicked on. Interesting that it waited until then.

20 minutes in, Zelda download at 33%, so the servers are holding up well so far.

I had heard speculation that the fan would likely only be used in docked mode, that when in portable mode it likely wouldn't use enough power in the GPU to need the fan.

Well, that's speculation for you.

Stopped by my local wally at 11, line formed nicely and a lady employee had a full plan laid out. Snagged the last B/R switch, 2xPro Cons, and Zelda. Time for bed because I'm 36 and tired.

Went to Walmart to see about getting a Pro Controller since I forgot to pre-order one. They had that plus some un-preordered consoles and an un-preordered Zelda Special Edition.

I bought the console because I'm worried Amazon's won't ship on time, so I just cancelled it. My Special Edition from Gamestop had already shipped, though, so... uh, I guess I have two?

I also fell off the tower but was low enough to barely survive.

Now that the weekend is here I can hopefully play Zelda some more.

They didn't gently caress up the basic Bomberman gameplay, but they basically did the bare minimum to make a passable game.

"It's Bomberman but shouldn't cost $50" is the general consensus.

Now....face the fury of the Phoenix Force!

I had a weird wifi problem. My router was password protected, but the switch would not pick it up. It was picking up neighbor's wifi routers...just not mine. I reset it and it finally worked. What gives?

Maybe I have less big, meaty hands than other goons, but the joycons feel good both in the grip and on the console.

Console itself feels more like a handheld then, well, a console.

Would give Zelda impressions, but my update is stuck at 0% since I'm in line with all the other east coast plebs I also bought I am Setsuna because I am weak to JRPGs and I wanted something not Zelda for when I get Zelda'd out.

The model isn't ready to be used yet. The sphere in the center of the mod is too tall, so that there is no tight fit with the buttons and the mod, and instead there's a lot of give. In fact, it goes beyond having 'give' and it just doesn't really lock into the buttons, and slides around.

Hopefully the guy who designed this mod is getting a Switch on release day, so he can make revisions and get this working.

I mean, it might take a month, but after a month supply should be fine. And you can play Zelda on your Wii U in the meantime.

I don't get people who pay scalpers.

Was in and out of Gamestop within like 5 minutes. Stopped by Walmart at 12:30 and they still hadn't sold one yet and the line was maybe 100+ long. The electronics counter was just pretty confused about everything. Welp, that's my story.

Welp my Switch and Zelda shipped via UPS which means they'll reroute it five loving times and it'll just end up in the Pacific Ocean.

Seriously, gently caress UPS.

So to add a friend you have to search by friend codes. I thought that Nintendo accounts were supposed to alleviate this problem with codes and crap.

Same.

Leaving for a multi-day trip to Oklahoma City at 6 AM, which will be followed by another multi-day trip immediately after. I probably won't be back until around March 7th or 8th. My Zelda Special Edition, assuming Walmart didn't gently caress up when I bought it, will be arriving March 13th.

I don't know when I will be able to afford to buy the Switch. My birthday is coming up though, so maybe I can use that as an excuse to get it.

Either way, I won't be able to play Zelda for at least a week and a half.

Most home routers are pieces of poo poo and do this on the regular. Someone brings device home and the router just checks out and won't respond to DHCP requests to that one, but the they renew existing ones.

When in doubt reboot your router it probably sucks less you spent some good money on it.

Anyone in a region with Neo Geo games try a Neo Geo game? I got Waku Waku 7 to test out how viable D-buttons are (shockingly not all that terrible?) and the audio is out of sync.
Is this your experience?

Also, is everyone's joycon strap bumpers scarily tight? I feel like one day trying to force one off I'll bend the rail.

Edit: Also, also, Voez is pretty nice. There's almost too many songs.

Hooked it up to my nice 4k OLED HDTV and the menus look surprisingly shittier than my regular old PS4, like they're purposefully using 720p assets (screenshots and icons and such) and upscaling them.
