The Switch console seems to TASTE terrible if you lick it, which is probably good, so children won't try to swallow it.  <_<

That's for the cartridges, not the console. Swallowing the whole console would probably be impossible even if you tried :)

uh yeah right I'm sorry ^^
I don't have my own one so I don't really know that much about it, thought the articles were talking about the big thingy itself ^^


Edit:

I don't want to be too negative about this, but the first reports are coming in:
- freezing screens and making strange sounds
- stuck mechanical components
- terrible scratches on screen
- screen flickering (but no full failures yet)

looks like you should DEFINITELY get a screen protector to avoid scratches...

Yeah that's scary. Thankfully the screen protectors don't cost too much it seems, so that's good. But for the rest, I'm definitively keeping my receipt nearby.

My experience has been that common sense when taking care of your Switch (And any electronic device) will lengthen its usability. I wonder how many people are just dropping the tablet into the dock instead of placing it more gently. Also, the Joy-Cons absolutely should not be forced out of the rail, just press the button and it comes out easy enough.
Calc Wars is still alive (I hope)

p2

well there's been a LetsPlay video of it where they got stuck for BOTH players at the same time... (ouch)
Also yes, the reports about scratches on the screen were from putting it into the dock and pulling it back out ^^

Yeah, I saw that. It appears that the entire thing is made of plastic, which scratches easily. I bet there's a few guys at Nintendo going  :banghead:

The main issue with scratches and stuff is that a lot of kids will be playing this console.

Technical issues aside, I wonder if they're still planning to make a Pokémon game for the Switch? A real Pokémon game, not a spinoff, playable on TV, would be amazing.

p2

it appears that the right hand controlelr thingy causes more connection problems because for that one the antenna is built in right next to a fat metal block//shielding from another component which partially blocks the signal (nintendo wtf) and soldering a little cable as an extra antenna inside it but bending it downwards instead of upwards (towards the metal thingy) fixes that issue. The same problem doe NOT exist for the left hand controller thingy.

I get the feeling the Nintendo Switch is a really nice machine but they pruduce them too cheap (cheap materials) and should have put much more time/money into optimizing their planned product before releasing it (clumsy stuff).

I'll stick to my Gamecube...

I would be surprised if Nintendo went with cheap material on purpose, unless they decided to do it to ensure they can slash the console price later on when it starts selling less, which they couldn't do with the Wii. Newer Nintendo consoles have been notorious for being durable. I'm thinking that insufficient testing has been the problem there.

Yeah, a screen protector from Nintendo that is more expensive then the switch itself...

The screen protector is actually $10 (in Canadian dollars) at EB Games. It's from Biogenic, like most other accessories, but a smartphone screen protector costs $25 in comparison.

15% declione in pr0n traffic (Youpr0n)
pr0n searches for "Bowser" went up by 23% (what the f***...)
