Nintendo Switch Launch Day – No Fun for Me!
The Whole World’s Playing Zelda Today
Unless you’ve been living under a large rock you’ll already know that Nintendo released the Switch today. No longer are you restricted to sitting in front of a television or monitor to get your console fix. You’re now able to play wherever you want. It’s a versatile console that seems to be going down very well with gamers all over the globe. The first really epic title being released alongside the Switch is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Other games you can pick up today include 1-2-Switch (a title I am comparing to Wii Sports as there are lots of little games that will show off how you can use the controls). There are other third-party titles available from today, which includes Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators from Activision and Super Bomberman R from Konami Digital Entertainment.
Sadly, we haven’t got a Switch or any of the games due to really boring and responsible things, like money. I have to be honest, it’s killing me a little bit inside. The hype for the Switch hasn’t affected me too much until this week. I was certainly interested but after the disappointment of the Wii U and the lack of upcoming games for the Switch, I managed not to get myself into debt in order to play on day one. I know this is the right thing as getting in debt is stupid and we already have enough of it, but man I want to play Zelda so bad!
All week I’ve been watching early unboxing videos and Zelda: Breath of the Wild let’s plays and my heart is now aching. The reviews have been amazing. Even though there were some frame rate issues initially, it seems as though Nintendo have already released a patch to fix most of these already. It’s been getting 10/10 all over the place and I just know that I’m going to love living the story.
There’s no way to get our hands on the Switch in the near future, so, for now, I’m left watching our favourite YouTubers play it and I’ve decided to buy it on the Wii U as soon as possible. Even G (who does have a love for Nintendo but not for Zelda) is gutted that we don’t have one.
I know I’m not alone, even if it feels like it. If you’re like me and you’re now living under a rainy Zelda-less cloud, perhaps you’ll enjoy watching some of my favourite Let’s Plays so far.
