    It's official: The presentation for Nintendo's newest console will be next week. As always, I'll be there to post the announcements.

    I am not really too excited. I expect it to be a few details I don't need about a system I already made my mind up about and the expected games. Unless Mother 3 is announced I don't really care about this announcement. We already know it exists and its primary functions, seems borderline pointless unless we get an exact date but I doubt we will since there have supposedly been some early marketing materials placed around and they just say "March 2017."

    People see M3 as a selling point? It's been out for a decade and the fan translation has been out for 8 years. A potato could play it at this point.

    ^ An official translation would be preferable, not to mention Nintendo may implement an Achievements-type system. Supporting the series is always a good thing as well. Maybe we'll get remakes or something if the games all sell well enough.

    An achievements system would be nice, probably won't happen with VC since Nintendo likes doing the bare minimum there.

    ^Dunno about you, but laziness is one thing I definitely can't accuse them of. If I don't like a Nintendo game, it's almost always because of changes in the name of being different rather than them not doing enough.

    My thoughts on the Switch haven't changed since they announced it: It's a great idea, but Nintendo lost my trust after awful third party support for the Wii and general support for the Wii U. I need to see a crazy low price or something to convince me this will have more than a handful or worthwhile games in order to jump. Showing us what some of those devs they mentioned before are actually doing would be a great start.

    I don't know about that. A lot of their multiplayer games do not have online, and on the topic of multiplayer, a lot of their games don't have it at all when they should, even if they did in previous iterations. Their VC is their crowning achievement of laziness with no Advance or Super GB modes, missing/limited emulator features, and missing in-game features (again, multiplayer). Speaking of achievements, still no Achievement/Trophy system or other basic system features like messaging systems and background downloading. Their software/system restrictions are laughable too, some games cannot be suspended in the background properly like SSB, so you can't go into Miiverse with it, or have any two things open at once like their non-existent video player and a game. To my knowledge they didn't even release more than a handful of promised N3DS exclusives, they probably don't want to put the effort in. I don't think they even updated all of their old games to take advantage of the new controls either.

    I could go on forever because Nintendo is peddling ancient technology with features missing that are the norm while charging more than their competition, all because they have Mario and their name brand.

    wii u has background downloading if that helps anything

    i feel like a lot of the limits nintendo puts on things like communications is because their stuff is aimed largely at kids and there's a lot of toxicity in gaming so they're probably very afraid of it scaring off their playerbase (the swapnote debacle probably didn't help anything either)

    We don't want Nintendo to regret the decision.

    And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

    What are your expectations for the Switch presentation? Will it be good? Bad? In the middle?

    Port city, probably. Pokken, Tekken, and maybe others.
