Good question. I’ve always had PlayStation consoles and back then, I never looked into getting a Nintendo console. A couple of my IRL friends own a Switch and the Discord server I frequent has several Nintendo fans, so when I tell them I’ve never played any Nintendo games nor own their consoles, they are shocked, haha.
If there is a Nintendo console I definitely want to buy in the near future, it’s the Switch. It looks amazing and it’s crazy how many critically acclaimed games are on it when the console is not even 2 years old yet. Among the games I want to try out are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (lots of Xeno fans in the Discord server I’m in, they said playing XC1 isn’t essential but highly recommended. Not sure how I’ll go about doing that with just a Switch, though), Pokémon and so forth.
For a while now, I’ve been contemplating whether to save up for a 2DS XL, Switch or my first PC build. I chose the latter as it’ll be better for me in the long term but I’m planning to get a Switch sometime afterwards. Hopefully I have enough money saved up to do my PC build and possibly buy a Switch as well next year, I don’t really see it happening this year.
I love video game soundtracks.
I’ve listened to some tracks from XC2 which are excellent. I’ve heard nothing but immense praise for the soundtracks in this series.
“Counterattack”… oh my god. 1:25 is SO GOOD!
Super Mario Galaxy and Smash Bros. Brawl would be great to try out but if I’m going to buy a Switch, I can’t play those, right? If that’s the case, it is very unfortunate.
I suppose that’s a drawback for getting into Nintendo this late with a Switch. (sighs)
The last few months of this year are hectic.
October: Red Dead Redemption 2
November: Hmm, not too sure which game would be on this scale. Maybe the two new Pokémon games?
December: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Spider-Man looks incredible and so does RDR2 (haven’t played the first one, however). Argh, too many good games coming out!
