Yes, very much looking forward to Metroid on Friday.

Now that I've finished M+R I can give this my full attention.

I remember very little to nothing of my time with the original cart and my silly snobbery towards original hardware meant that I skipped over AM2R, so this - I'm looking forward too 8-) .

Easy to say but you honestly could have borrowed my 3DS, dez. I rarely use it these days. If you do have any probs with your charging dock, just PM me. I know how long you've been looking forward to it!

I just picked up Rayman which I've heard so much about over the years. What a bloody brilliant and beautiful platform game this is shaping up to be. So many great moments already, I'll be surprised if this isn't in my top 5 of the year. That sounds bonkers when I think back over what I've played but I'm loving this and it's right up there.

Thanks Stanshall, appreciate it. Got such a nice community here, had a few people offer me their 3ds' to play Metroid on!

Rayman Lemons is top bananas :)

I'm gunna say there's going to be at least one official Mario Odyssey themed Switch peripheral announced on tonight's Direct.

And I want it.

Already.

And amiibo to unlock costumes from other games like Mario Link.

Very, very tempted to pick up a Switch but I have a feeling that Nintendo is going to introduce a new version of the Switch sometime within the next year with better memory etc., as they are wont to do.

Some decent information last night with a couple of surprises! I'll definitely be playing Wolfenstein 2 on Switch as the release date for the other platforms is on Super Mario Day and it's got no chance. Quite a clever move, really.

Hopefully they'll be good ports (very DOOM is also coming!) and i'm sure they will be.

Arcade Archives is interesting. I've never played the Vs. versions of the classic Nintendo stuff before but I doubt i'll buy into them. It does however slowly introduce the idea of something similar to the Virtual Console.

I did have a bit of a moment when Lyn appeared. That's about it, though.

To be fair, Mario looks like a lot of fun.

I don't know why but bare-chested Mario on the beach level made me feel uncomfortable. I guess my brain always considered his clothing and his body to be one and the same, like a LEGO figure, rather than something he could whip off at the beach...

More Mario Odyssey footage to make me feel like a giddy kid. Quite smitten with Project Octopath Traveler (working title, thankfully) after what they showed today.

And yeah... Lyn in FE Warriors!

I don't generally care for platformers, so Mario Odyssey would usually not interest me at all. Also didn't really got on with Mario the last time I gave it a try. Yet even against all that, Odyssey is really pulling me in. It just keeps throwing really strange and amusing stuff out there. It's very hard not to love what they're doing with that game. You can play as the letter M!

Doom on the Switch is kind of hilarious. I almost want to pick it up just for the sake of it. It'll be very interesting to see how it performs too. I would have assumed the Switch wouldn't be capable of running something that looks like that, especially not at 60fps. But at the same time, that game has some pretty impressive technical wizardry going on, so I wouldn't be surprised if it actually turns out really well, although still impressed.

Also happy to see more Splatoon content. The game has been starting to really need some more maps, so adding in two at once is great.

Octopath demo is lovely. Beautiful art style and pretty sexy music.

New ARMS character Lola Pop is fun, I just won a ranked match with her. The kinda yo-yo nunchuk weapon is class. Good to get back into some ARMS.

I'll be getting Doom whatever it's like because I want more ports. I'll play anything on the Switch but can't be bothered any more with the PS4.

Am I going to get NBA 2K18? Hnnngh.

I watched it last night and enjoyed it.

Didn't get what I was personally wishing for, no Yoshi 2018, no streaming apps or system improvements but I'm sure it will all come in time and like I say, I enjoyed it.

Doom and Wolfie 2 coming out is a shock if I'm honest. I didn't even consider the Switch being able to run them, let alone be released so soon.

I'm looking forward to these Arcade Originals too, that's something I'm excited to see.

More Snipperclips is always a good thing :lol: .

Xenoblade, I found very random. The whole presentation I though was odd. Not my kind of thing at all, gameplay wise but was willing to give it a whirl but that presentation has put me off a bit. Good looking Special Edition and Pro Controller mind.

Mario looks fantastic, I was cautious about seeing too much but I think it was ok spoiler wise. It looks like it's had a long time in the oven and has some interesting features too, that will make it seem more than just the next Mario platformer.

The future looks bright I think for Nintendo's fledgling system just six months in :) .

Aye.

Also jumped on the Octopath demo and Lola Pop (wait... that sounds a bit wrong).

Can't wait for DOOM. Want to buy it day one but the £50 digital price tag I read about is a bit evil...
