Does anybody else who has had a Switch for a while find they have long periods of time between turning it on? I've been really selective in what I've been buying for this system (and am trying to do so across everything I play games on) and so far only own Zelda, Mario and Blaster Master Zero. I find that I play the hell out of the games when I buy them but once I finish a game the system sits until I find something else I really want. This isn't a negative mind you since I have no pile of shame on it (which is very relieving) but it's been pretty easy for me to have this much control on this system for some reason. Maybe it's the lack of flash sales and what I call the "Steam mentality" where I'd buy so many games on the cheap but never get around to them.

If you’re looking for a good Switch game to pour several hours into, get The End is Neigh. It’s hard, and you’ll die a bunch of times, but because it’s hard you’ll be spending a lot of time trying to beat it.

Watch some gameplay on YouTube first to make sure it’s a game you’ll like. It’s not for everyone. But I like it.

It’s "pick up and play" style works well with the portability of the Switch. If you just want to play for a few minutes whilst on the train or something...

Not yet. We just got it at Christmas with Mario Odyssey, Zelda, Splatoon 2, Fast RMX, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Arms. Right now there's plenty to play on it and I'm really enjoying Zelda. My son is all about MK8 Deluxe, Splatoon, and Arms. Neither of us have even touched Odyssey yet. I'd say we're good for at least a couple of more months. After that I might pick up Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Plus, hopefully by then we'll have the next Nintendo Direct and they will lay out their road map for the first half of 2018. I'm REALLY hoping Nintendo addresses virtual arcade soon!

I completely forgot that I bought Chronicles 2. Maybe I'll start it up when I finish off Witcher 3. Yeah your situation is nice because you got all of those at once. During Christmas at my grandmas all the great grandchildren were huddled around a Switch playing Arms. It was a good thing to see younger people genuinely excited about Nintendo again.

Agreed about Virtual Console. When that comes out I'll no longer have self control

Something I was never arguing against. It doesnít have to be all or nothing though. You canít simply dismiss the analogue trigger because ďget a steering wheelĒ.

Mine has sat off for 1-2 months at least twice now as I expected. I only own Zelda, MK8 and Odyssey. But when I got those I played the hell out of them.

Iíve got some eShop titles I want to try but will wait for some sales.

There's been a rumor going around of a January 11th direct, though Nintendo still hasn't said anything. I hope it's true as Nintendo really does need to lay out their roadmap for 2018. We all know about Kirby and Yoshi, along with Bayonetta 1&2 re mastered plus Bayonetta 3. However SURELY there's more to come.

I think they normally give more than 1 day notice on the ones that aren't centered on one game.

If I did that, Iíd feel like I wasted money. Thatís why I try to play both Switch and PS4 at least 1 hour per day (so 2 hours total gameplay per day).

There are all sort of theories right now but the biggest one is the flame = Fire. And that in to the New FE in their last tweet pic and people are taking it as that Nintendo is hinting that a new Fire Emblem is being shown at the new direct that will take place in the next couple of days.

That or Nintendo is just pointing out that everyone is flaming over the lack of the new Direct news; which was leaked to be tomorrow.

But mostly they are just trolling at this point and keeping the Nintendo Direct in trending sections of social media.

Looks like GameStop put out a Tweet a little too early.

I hope FE isnt it. Sorry but that series just does not twirl my beanie.

Switch heavily in the Rainway trailer, despite not being listed as a supported platform in the "coming soon" section of the video.

First Look at Rainway - YouTube

[Show spoiler]
No way that ever officially* releases on any storefront. Way too much to lose for platform holders.

"Should I play my Steam copy of Sonic Mania for free with Rainway on Switch?"
OR SHOULD I BUY A COPY FROM THE NINTENDO E-SHOP FOR $19.99 SO NINTENDO GETS THEIR CUT?

"Should I play my Steam copy of PUBG for free with Rainway on XBONE?"
OR SHOULD I BUY A COPY FROM MICROSOFT FOR $29.99 SO MICROSOFT GETS THEIR CUT?

*it may get "released" through a browser exploit/hack, but certainly not an officially sanctioned release.

I've already gotten almost 300 hours put into it, so definitely no sense of that like with the Wii U. And its only been 10 months or so.
