    I'm too old to fight for one and will be sorely disappointed if there's another Wii like situation in where I have to wait an inordinate period of time to give them money for a consumer electronic device.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    I notice the show is 6pm central time. That is on my ride home. Might stop somewhere and watch it on the smartphone.

    Uh, should be 10pm central time, unless you mean a different time than CST (UTC -6)?

    Yeah. Guessing he subtracted two hours from PST instead of added :P

    Less than 7 hours. I can't believe we're finally here.

    Will we have an IRC chat going?

    I expect it will be like the PS4. Pre-orders started right when the price broke.

    My pre-order status will depend on how hype I get from this presentation. New Metroid? Fucking sold, zero questions asked. And I don't see that happening. So I'll probably still order one because new Mario looks from the little I've seen like Super Mario 3D World, which I adore. Also, I want BotW on the new hotness. Also also, I'm hoping against hope for some kind of unified platform for VC, which will ensure that I buy all the fucking games so that my daughter has an official Nintendo library waiting for her to be old enough to play them.

    Looks like Wal-Mart's system is set to start accepting pre-orders at 9AM PST tomorrow morning.

    May want to just go in and try ASAP.

    While I'm kinda meh on all the Wii U ports there seems to be I do have to admit that Splatoon absolutely deserves far more coverage than I think it got on the Wii U.

    The game is fantastically delightful.

    I went into a Best Buy in Southwestern Ontario (Canada) today and the kid in the games department told me Nintendo are announcing more details about the Switch tonight (which we knew) and that pre-orders would open at all retailers tomorrow morning at business open. I'm sure he can't speak for every business, but that's what he was told for Best Buy. I'd think he was just making things up but he genuinely knew nothing except for the announcement tonight and pre-orders opening tomorrow.

    Welp, I'm gonna go to bed now to try and get a whopping 4 hours of sleep before the presentation. I've got a sinking feeling that I won't be able to sleep at all though and will be dead tired at 5 AM. See you all on the other side.

    The full on reveal of the new generation of Nintendo tonight is going to feel very strange without Iwata. :(

    Well since there's apparently going to be two million units available I know I'm going to be refreshing desperately.

    And hoping Amazon has limited sales to 1 per customer or something. Fucking scalpers.

    UK Amazon is restricting them to one per customer per household, thankfully.

    I tested Target's Switch display, see if there's secrets beneath it.

    It's cardboard, and was securely in place.

    Foiled.

    Foiled.

    you gotta align a number of other displays throughout the store and then the Switch display will move to reveal its secret.

    I would be funny if the new Mario was a drastic change like Wind Waker.

    Just like we saw The Legend of Zelda for the Gamecube and the Wii U before those consoles came out? Granted that was a longer time before release of the system itself, there still is no guarantee that the Mario we glimpsed in October is the Mario we are getting. Mario is a pretty safe bet to not get a drastic overhaul anyway though.

    The Gaming Historian? Never heard of that channel but sounds like something I would actually enjoy. I've been watching through a ton of those Did You Know Gaming videos lately and that stuff fascinates the hell out of me. The Iwata one makes me cry tho :( (at least the quote at the beginning)

    Gaming Historian is generally pretty good quality and interesting information.

    The GC demo was always supposed to be a tech demo though. They wouldn't put that in their first widely seen advertisment.

    You would like the Gaming Historian, his stuff is generally really interesting.

    for those looking to kill time and get hyped before the big show tonight, AGDQ are in the midst of a Nintendo block right now. just setting up for a 4 person Link to the Past Any% race, followed by Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door*.

    *this run will not be finished before the Switch presentation starts, keep an eye on the time if you do watch it.
