    Nintendo Switch

    Nintendo's new console for the home and your hands 👾

    I've always liked having a portable gaming device with me since being gifted a Gameboy when I was a kid growing up in the 90s. I love the versatility of being able to play my Switch on my tv and take it on the go when I need to.

      The Switch is the most fun device I've ever had. It's screen, despite being only 720p, has been plenty decent; I have spent most of my time playing in handheld mode. When docked and playing on a TV, the ability of the console to achieve 1080p at either 30 or 60 FPS is astounding, given its size. The flexibility offered by the Joy-Cons is great, and their ability to switch (ha!) between a PSP style handheld, Wii style motion controls, and a conventional game console controller offers great freedom, especially when games support more than one or even all of those configurations. It also offers a way to have 2 players play on the console without even ordering additional controllers.

      Overall, the Switch is an incredibly fun device, with great games in its library, that has a lot of potential. It strikes a great balance between many different types of gaming without sacrificing its potential to be great in any area.

      The Nintendo Switch has become the most played console in my house. This is partly because of the great games that have come out for it and partly because it was made for you to keep playing. In the evenings, I can just pick it up off the dock and keep playing Splatoon 2 in bed. I actually use the handheld mode fairly often; even around my house. The resolution of its screen isn't great, but none of the games released so far have high end graphics so it's not too much of a problem. The battery life isn't awesome, but you can get about 3 hours of game time out of it. It won't last for long flights, but it'll hold up around the house or bringing it in to the office. I highly recommend this. I would also suggest splurging and getting a pro controller with it. Definitely worth it.

    It's more fun than I thought and a random quiz now and again either on my own, or with my wife can be a bit of fun.

      I've actually had it for several months. I didn't get to play around with it too much, but for now its main use is with Google Music. I ask it to play songs, bands, albums or just generic stuff like "saturday morning music" and it's pretty good at it. I also ask it the weather, I occasionally set reminders on it and once or twice I set a countdown. I guess I'm not yet accustomed to it being there.

      Best part for me: coming home at night, I can just shout at my Google Home to turn on the lights instead of stumbling around in the dark looking for the light switch!
