    Are there any Nintendo Switch players here? I got mine last year in april as a birthday present and it has been my favorite console ever since. I've just finished Zelda Breath of the Wild and need to get started on the DLC packs. I'm halfway with Super Mario Odyssey, dabbled in some Mario Kart and I just Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze from my wife as a gift. At the end of the month I'm expecting Crash Bandicoot Nsane Trilogy, so enough games for me to play for the time being.

    Regarding the new Pokemon game, I have mixed feelings. It seems it will cost €60, but it looks like it should be around €40. I think I will still try it.

    Just as a little backstory. I also own other console and the Grand Theft Auto series are among my favorite games ever, but Nintendo is what I grew up on and will always be number one to me.

    I love the Zelda series, and BOTW looks like my kind of game, but have not seen much else for the Switch I'd be interested in.

    BOTW is awesome. The freedom of such a huge open world is just mindblowing. They did a great job making it feel huge as well. If you like the sandbox type of games, I think because of the popularity of BOTW more Switch games will follow this format. E3 is next week and Nintendo is expected to reveal some good stuff.

    It has been so long since I could afford console gaming that I am virtually incapable of caring about console gaming: my total spending on PC gaming and related hardware for the last three years is short of the total for a Switch and one game.

    I could never get into pc gaming. I just prefer relaxing on a couch in front of a big screen. I did clock in a lot of Roller Coaster Tycoon, The Sims and GTA2 hours back in the day on my pc.

    I like RPGs. I used to play the crap out of the Heroes of Might & Magic series when I was younger.
    I cooked my PS4 hard drive playing Skyrim and Shadow of the Colossus a few months ago and haven't bothered buying any new console. I've still got a PS1 and 2, SNES and a 64 and the kids use them a lot.
    I only use my PC for music now....

    A ps4 hard drive is fixable isn't it? Or at least replacable without too much hassle?

    Probably. I can't see much point when I got it off Gumtree for cheap.
    For the cost of a new HD I might as well get a new PS4.

    Who is excited about E3? I already pre-ordered Super Mario Party, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, the Pokeball Plus and Super Smash Bros.

    I've been keeping an eye on E3 although I haven't had a chance to look into things properly yet. I've never has a Nintendo console (I really wanted a SNES back in the day) so didn't consider getting a Switch since I'm not overly familiar with Nintendo games. It looks like a decent system though.

    The Switch is an awesome console. I barely every use it as a handheld, only on my tv. The games are great, but of course, if you like the more realistic, gritty games, the Switch is not for you.

    Have you considered getting the SNES Classic Mini? It's €99, including 2 controllers and 21 classic SNES games.

    That would be a good call, I got the Megadrive equivalent a while back. It's great fun!

    Won them? Sweet! Those old school games can be so hard though. I've been enjoying playing The Terminator!

    Sorry! Typo! I OWN them both. If I had won them, that would have been great.

    Bwaaah, Donkey Kong Country is kicking my ass! Awesome game, but it can get quite difficult sometimes.

    That, and one more week till Crash Bandicoot releases!
