    I only bought Switch for Zelda, Pokemon, Metroid, Pikman and Yoshi. All other stuff I can play for free on PC, if I want to.

    There's no point, I try, and I try to show my side of things, and where does it get me? Nowhere. I can defend the Switch and acknowledge its weaknesses till the cows come home, but it's vain.

    If something is good, you don't need to defend it)

    That's just it, what's good to someone isn't good to another, opinions are too damn polarized, forget it.

    That's the thing: Switch doesn't need defending. It's something that either interests you or it doesn't, having current-gen games on a portable (even if they're 30 FPS and low quality settings). No other gaming platform is like Switch, and smartphones aren't even in the same league, if you consider them a gaming platform for some reason.

    My PC is 10/10 for its purpose, but I can't take it to Las Vegas in about a week when I go see Boise State whoop the Oregon Ducks in the Vegas bowl. My Switch and a huge selection of games will be with me for the plane ride and hotel room downtime, though.

    To be fair, that general rule of thumb applies to just about everything. Funny thing about opinions, everyone has em. Doesn't mean we're all wrong.

    Yeah! Gamestreaming! That input lag and inconsistent performance! Woooooo

    You're right though. There are options.

    Not for native portables there aren't. Streaming is garbage if you're talking more than a state away, and screw another subscription cost for streaming only certain games from the company's servers. Net neutrality repeal seems pretty inevitable, so game streaming services are just gonna get a lot worse anyway.

    Not for native portables, I just mean for portable gaming in general. Where I live, we have spotty internet, so game streaming is terrible no matter where you are.

    I always play 3DS or PSVITA in the airplane. What about Switch? You can't play with Joy-Cons in the airplane mode as far as I know, because they use Bluetooth. Is that true?

    Thanks, I thought even when connected to the screen they still use Bluetooth. But then the scene from the first ad, where the guy plays on the plane is bullshit. Unless he wants to crash it.

    3DS and Vita don't play console games. They play games designed for portables, just as we've had since the first Gameboy.

    Don't know about you, but for me it's difficult play games on the Switch screen after TV screen. I think those console games are designed for a big screen, which makes all the small details hard to see. On the 3DS and VITA everything was designed according to the screen size and resolution, so it's just a pleasure to play any game.
