I don't know how the accounts and friends system would work on the Switch but I do know you can claim your Switch User ID already - https://accounts.nintendo.com/login?post_login_redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Faccounts.nintendo.com%2F

I am just back from the Smyths midnight launch in Inverness. It was closed! oO Have I got the date correct?! Travelled all that way and it is freezing up here. Felt like an idiot standing outside the store with all the lights off and shutters down! :(

Is anyone else not a bit underwhelmed? 1st impression was that the screen was smaller than I was expecting - not much bigger than the PS Vita. Reluctantly spent £48 on Zelda as none of the launch games really appealed to me, and didn't want to be left with a £280 console with no game. I like being able to switch from playing on my tv to handheld mode, but other than that it's a bit disappointing. Dare I say that Zelda seems really average?? Role on Mario Kart & Odyssey!
No! Quite the opposite in fact! After initial disappointment after the announcement and thinking I wouldn't bother getting one, I have no regrets about getting one now. It's a really well put together bit of kit. Size is just right and the screen is great. Also looks good on the big screen.
Totally loving Zelda so far, only done a few hours, so just the 'tutorial' dungeons. Real game starts now, like most Zelda games. The visuals are excellent, the art style works really well. Don't get me wrong, it's no Horizon Zero Dawn which I've also played this week. But it does well considering the kit it's running on.
What makes you feel it's average? Honest question, you've played Zelda games before?
Nope, new to Zelda. Probably just not my thing. It's cool kit definitely, so hopefully I'll have no regrets when there are more games available.
Zelda has always been average and its just fanboys making a bigger deal than it actually is. Also new system hype is clouding people's judgement. This is why I'm not buying this system because I know it will end up just being a console with indies and creepy jrpgs like the Vita was with the occasional exclusive. I'm fine with my PS4 until PS5 releases espesially as I barely have enough time playing games as it is.


So stop playing games and whining about systems you will never own on threads you don't have time to read.

SteamWorld Heist OST competition
As a SteamWorld Ambassador I have one SteamWorld Heist OST (By the excellent rock vocal harmony group, Steam Powered Giraffe) code to give away to a lucky person on this thread.

SteamWorld Heist - Prepare for Boarding by Steam Powered Giraffe - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj8XRFjRng4

How this will work
'Like' this post between now at 2359 BST on 8 April for a chance to win a download code for the SteamWorld Heist OST by Steam Powered Giraffe. A winner will be randomly selected from the list of likes and I'll PM the code to the winner and announce it here.

Somewhat obligatory text
I reserve the right to filter out entries from completely fresh accounts. The judge's decision is final.

My Pro controller's here at last... yep, this feels very nice, even if it was rather pricey!

Now I just need my screen protectors...

Tricks and workarounds:
Thanks Marcoos - http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/hukd-nintendo-switch-owners-thread-2621430?p=30351780
To transfer a digital game from internal memory to an SD card:
1. Go to the options for the game on the Switch home screen and select data management
2. Archive the game, your save data will not be deleted
3. Power off the Switch and insert the SD card.
4. Power up Switch and if prompted to run the update, first time use of an SD card.
5. Click on the game icon and download. The game will be now downloaded to the SD card instead of internal memory.
6. Enjoy!

Thanks to thedarkjedi - http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/hukd-nintendo-switch-owners-thread-2621430?p=30181768
I created a dashboard and web browser for the Switch when using the Facebook user account link trick. Go to http://facebook.com/SwitchBoardDash for details on the trick and to access SwitchBoard. :)

How to set up an account to access another country's store: - Thanks Marcoos
1. Go to https://accounts.nintendo.com/ and create a new account
2. Select the country and time zone of the store you wish to access
3. On your switch console, create a new account and link your newly created Nintendo account to it.
4. Access the eShop, you will be prompted to select which account to use for that session. Just pick which store you want to access

Here's a link to all the games on the US eShop. Japanese store might be fun to try and find a link for..

In the same boat. I've got Zelda preordered on the WiiU might just leave it at that.

Got dysonism as my ID :) Looking forward to launch day with Zelda and 1 2 Switch after playing the launch lineup at the London reveal event in January! The hardware is gorgeous and seamless from my short time with it, even if the games lineup is lacking somewhat..

Zelda was amazing, played 20 minutes of it and was dying to jump back in for more. 1 2 Switch will be a fantastic game to show to other people, it truly is the Wii Sports of the Switch although maybe with less replayability (and I reckon absolutely should have been a pack in - total missed opportunity Nintendo). MK8 is already a fantastic game and recommended if you don't have it on the Wii Ubut really adds very little other to incentivize me back, Splatoon 2 unfortunately seems very very similar to the first (though Splatoon 1 was a fantastic game, I'd have liked to see more in the way of new ideas for 2).

Arms was surprisingly really fun and I'm definitely gonna pick that up when it comes out!

Has anyone had a chance to try out Bomberman? Sorely tempted but not sure I can justify £40 on a Bomberman game :(

I think Bomberman could possibly be one of the first to have a price drop from retailers

Had it on preorder but decided to cancel as I'm sure Zelda will keep me occupied for some time. Hopefully by then it'll be >£30

Hoping to make a preorder if the price is right. Till then, I'm just happy to chat about the Switch :)

I may have bumped into you there then if yours was the morning session. Quite literally I think coz I was the only one with a toddler in a buggy.... The Nintendo staff were incredibly helpful in the times when I needed a path cleared.

Yes, ARMS is one of those games which look simple, perhaps overly so, on the surface, but once you play it you discover that the game has loads of hidden depth. I had a really good match against a Nintendo rep at a booth. The controls were really intuitive, even for more advanced moves and combos as I was dodging and timing my punches quite easily. I pummeled him in the first round but he came back strongly and then took the final round with a last gasp punch.

I tried Bomberman out there too but agree on the price feeling a bit high unless more modes and extras are announced/revealed. Would be fantastic for local multiplayer though!
