    None of my stuff has gone to shipping yet which is making me antsy. I'm sure the Amazon stuff will be fine but that is just 12Switch and Bomberman. Best Buy for Pro controller and Neon Switch and Gamestop for BOTW special edition better get a shipping soon.

    I work on Thursday until 11pm. So it's straight from work to Best Buy to pick up my Switch.

    I took Friday off for both Breath of the Wild and seeing Logan with my fiance.

    Well you can get a copy in a box with pack in extra joy-cons, but it's just an e-shop code on a bit of paper. No cart.

    Best Buy plans to get my pro controller to me by Thursday! Woo hoo!

    Amazon still hasn't moved my Switch at all.

    Toys R Us says "fuck you, we aren't even touching your BotW special edition until Friday." Looks like I'd better hope Walmart doesn't sell out...

    I just bought tickets for me and the girlfriend to see Logan at 9pm tomorrow. Which means it should end just in time for me to get to the Best Buy two blocks away from the theater to grab my Switch.

    I figure I can use the distraction instead of sitting around doing nothing waiting for midnight.

    So Gamestop released a press statement that they would have limited extras for midnight. The two stores near me doing midnight launch have told me they are all for pre-order customers. I'm kind of feeling like they are full of crap and have put them aside for people. How does Best Buy have so many and Gamestop have absolute jack squat?

    $$$. Best Buy could have put up more money than Gamestop. With the amount of accessories for the device Best Buy was probably salivating to get more than anyone else.

    The eternal rule about Gamestop is that individual stores can be great or really shitty, depending on who's running them. I'm guessing your store is on the shitty side.

    That's... weird. Also, Nintendo released a quick eShop video:



    It's nice because it confirms all those eShop cards I just bought will transfer.

    Curious why they didn't enable this for reviewers.

    Because getting information/communication out to people isn't exactly Nintendo's strong suit =/

    What about money I already have in my EShop account?

    The video showed him merging it.

    Hmm, I wonder if they're gonna sync and retrofit the new Nintendo Account stuff backwards, or is it just a one time transfer of funds from the old account to the new one?

    Like, you don't have a Nintendo "game catalog" the way you do on Playstation and Xbox.

    Because big box stores receive pallets of the things where Gamestops get a few boxes in the mail.

    I would absolutely love to see them take that '2D' prototype for Breath of the Wild, complete with all the world interaction they included in it, and add in art and items from past 2D Zelda games into a Legend of Zelda Maker. It could be pretty amazing to play a game along the lines of A Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds with the interactivity of Breath of the Wild and the ridiculous user made worlds and dungeons that would be possible in such a mashup.

    It's possible -- Mario Maker grew out of the 2D Mario devkit.

    Unless they are supporting higher usb speeds then this a pretty worthless point. I get much better throughput on wifi than i ever have on a lan adapter. Although there really should be no reason for the dock to not have a lan adapter built in.

    Man, I only have a 10W and 12W laying around. Maybe that'll be fine for just topping off the battery overnight when I don't feel like taking it downstairs to the dock.

    yea it should be. reports are that while low power chargers can't charge it while playing, that they'll charge slowly while in sleep mode.

    Still, until we get and test, we don't know for sure.

    It's not about speed, it's about coverage. My gaming area is about as far from the wireless router as you can get and still be in the house.

    Feel fairly confident that the Switch is going to be a dead console walking in US/EU if they can't fix this joycon sync thing with a software patch.

    Every review spent multiple paragraphs on it and it's only going to spiral. The switch has such an uphill climb to begin with that I'm really not sure it can survive a major hardware issue right out of the gate.

    Yeah, I think what we're going to see is that USB PD devices, like this one from Anker (https://www.anker.com/products/A2053111) may be able to supply charging and perhaps even enough to support playing power.
    We won't know until someone tries it though, and I don't think a lot of review sites have USB PD devices to test.
    RAV has a USB PD battery pack as well (https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Charger-RAVPower-26800mAh-Recharged/dp/B01LRQDAEI).

    However, each of those only output at 29W, so even they may be insufficient. However, with the tablet in lower-power mode when not docked, it may be ok.

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    The console only ever takes in 16W off the wall even playing Zelda while charging, so a 30W USB-PD battery should work. I've had that ravpower battery in my amazon cart for a few days, but I'm going to wait to see someone else try it first before I take the plunge on yet another 20k+ mah battery pack.
