I enjoyed playing arms and BoI on my Switch on the plane down to Sydney for work last night and in my hotel room. I look forward to playing more when I get back there tonight.

That's my Switch update for this Tuesday.

At this point I'm basically just waiting to see if there's an Odyssey bundle/recolor before buying the console.

Does anyone remember how long before release the Splatoon 2 console bundle got announced?

It was during the ARMS Direct that presented Splatoon 2's hero mode.

My WiFi is good? YMMV I guess

Try restarting your Switch if you have issues, but since the latest system patch I've been rock solid

The weird thing about the Switch Wifi, in my experience, is that it always shows like 2 out of 3 bars in the connection status, but then the performance is totally fine. Mind you, that's in Mario Kart, so it's not exactly a complete study of the matter.

The only difference I've noticed since the update in terms of wifi is it connects to my network a lot faster than before. Performance is the same

Try switching channels to 1 or 11, and maybe to 5GHz instead of 2.4GHz. There are a whole lot of reasons wifi can be lovely, and it's not just the console's fault (mine's been perfectly fine).

I just got one of those fancy Portal routers and it helped a lot - living in NYC there are probably 30+ networks overlapping you in any given spot so "free channels" don't exist.

Disgaea 5 chat because nobody asked.



Slowly making progress on this thing. From what I hear, It's about a quarter of the way to it's full potential, then I can play the game of "Rolling the dice on trying to duplicate it every 10-20 minutes or so" for all my characters.

I can't wait to have time to play this. It totally scratched the "I need FFT" itch on my PS4 and I'm willing to shell out the price again to have it portable. I keep hoping for more tactical games. Outside of the obvious Mario Rabbids game, I'm also looking forward to Tiny Metal and WarGroove. WarGroove looks a little thin on the surface but I'll probably give it a shot.

Way better. Blaster Master has you going between glowing spots on a map with little actual challenge. Shovel Knight is the opposite.

Wargroove doesn't look thin, its just a slightly different genre from Disgaea/FFT. It is just a carbon copy of Advance Wars.

Like the Game Boy I have spent over half the time with the Switch on a Tetris game
