The Direct was pretty good. From what we saw, the following are must-plays or high priority for me.

Super Mario Maker 2 - Never played the original or the 3DS version (never had a Wii U and sold off my 3DS long ago), but one that I've always been interested in trying out. It was a great surprise announcement. I mean, we knew it was coming, but I didn't expect it so soon.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - So I never played a proper Fire Emblem game, and was never really interested in the series for the longest time. But I played Fire Emblem Heroes for a bit when it came out for mobile (I deleted it after a month since I didn't want to become a slave to it, lol), and have been interested in trying out a proper game ever since. Since the Switch is the only console I own now, I've been looking forward to this new entry, and while the whole school setting threw me off a bit, it still looks interesting to me.

Dragon Quest XI S - I've always loved the Dragon Quest series, so I'm really excited to play this. It's been a longer wait than I expected given that the original will have been out for two years (in Japan) by the time this is released, but I've had more than enough games to play in the meantime, so whatever.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Personally, I love the look of the game. Breath of the Wild was essentially my first Zelda game and got me interested in the series. While I know this is an entirely different type of game, it looks like the type of thing I'd be into. Considering it's a remake of a GB game though, I agree about the price point. But being full price probably won't sway me from getting it.

And as a side note, y'all are insane. Animal Crossing is amazing. It's the #1 game I'm looking forward to this year, and I don't care who knows it!

Things I will definitely be buying at launch:
  • Link's Awakening
  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses


Things I will definitely be buying but may possibly wait for a sale:
  • Mario Maker 2
  • Yoshi's Crafted World
  • Ultimate Alliance 3
  • Final Fantasy IX


Things I will be keeping my eye on for potential buy:
  • Astral Chain
  • Oninaki


For the other games we already know are coming:

Pokemon I need to see first, I haven't cared for the new creatures since Gen 4 ended. I would buy a fully 3D Gen II and Gen IV remake day one if they release them.

Luigi's Mansion I am interested in but need to see more.

No Bayonetta, Animal Crossing or Metroid for me; for Metroid it is mostly because I hate first person games.

Anything that goes up for pre-order later that I am interested in I may put one in and decide by release if I will keep since my GCU expires mid-June.

I have 2 days of membership after E3, so they need to get anything big announced up quick

Yep, I’m just waiting for things to go up so I can pre-order before my GCU expires.

I won’t be buying as many games when it does.

Everyone I asked told me the DS version was better, and I found a still sealed copy on Amazon for a reasonable price. So I bought both the DS and Switch versions of The World Ends With You. They just arrived.

Shovel Knight and it's Amiibo are now backed up several more months. I think I've had the Amiibo 3-pack on order now for 2 years.

Quote:
Shovel Knight's final Treasure Trove update and its accompanying amiibo will now launch "several months" after its previous 9th April release date.

The game was also due to launch complete with the update in new physical editions - these have also been delayed.
Quote:
In a blog post on the holdup, developer Yacht Club Games reassured fans it was "not a major delay" but would also not set a new date until everything was lined up and ready to go.
Sucks but YCG's really is an amazing story all around. They will have finally finished what they set out to do.

I was going to wait until closer to April, but since it will be "several more months" I pre-ordered it now to lock in the GCU discount before it expires in June.

I got my hands on this in store finally a few weeks back. My pinky finger covers up all 4 face buttons. The sticks felt a little cheap & small too. I want a Switch for the handheld mode. This feels toooooo small. Everything feels like it’s for 9 year olds. Shame, cuz I like a lot of games on Nintendo but don’t wanna buy this for a tv setup.

So I'm thinking about getting the Switch soon, but I'd like to ask some questions before I do so. I plan to have the Switch stay in a charging dock the whole time and I'd like to get a couple of pro controllers and another joy con controller so my girlfriend can play games with me. And for the Switch I am also looking for a dockable protector case and tempered glass screen protector. Anything you'd all recommend? Also, I plan on getting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and I am also trying to figure out how to protect/store the Switch wheel controllers.

Mine has left my dock a handful of times and the only thing I bought was a dock "sock" on etsy. It slips over the front part and has microfiber on its back that touches the screen. Cost less than $10. It's red and has a Mario symbol so it looks like his hat.

I also got a tempered glass screen cover but have yet to put it on. I always figure I'll get bubbles or dust and that would bug me.

Was one of the only non-Forza games I was looking forward to on Xbox so would be nice to see it revived. But with all the performance issues it was having on stronger hardware it is hard to imagine a smooth Switch version.
