General rule of thumb.
If you steal something, don't turn your gloating into the biggest thing on the internet...

It's in the hands of the Feds now... LOL

At least the guilty party shared more than Nintendo have about the console...

The switch Embargo ended today, so expect to see loads of videos about the machine, the GUI and other stuff. No game reviews though until March.

There's loads available on YouTube and NintendoLife already.

The system embargo is today, but the game review embargo isn't until (IIRC) next Wednesday, which seems odd!!!

Plenty of Zelda stuff popping up, though.
I've been reading all the spoilers, mostly because I know fully well that I'll never get far enough in the game for them to be spoilery to me!

... £48, and I guarantee I won't hit the halfway point :/

I'm avaoiding ALL spoilers as I always finish Zelda games. I've not even watched any videos since the first few. I avoided all of them from last year's E3.

TBH I doubt there will be anything/much unexpected in the game, as by now Zelda has pretty much stopped surprising, but I'd still rather not know anything about anything!

Problems already

Hopefully they'll be able to sort such issues before or at launch with a patch.

Seems the issue has been identified quite clearly and it's down to low power bluetooth and obstructions (mostly of the joy-cons themselves).

Shouldn't really be a problem most of the time if sitting less than 10 feet away from the Switch and not covering up the joy-cons with your hands etc.

Looks like Nintendo may have to boost th bluetooth signal in later joy-cons though.

My Switch and BOTW has now been dispatched. Delivery will occur some time between today and Monday.

I'm working nights from tonight, so that's fine by me.

As for the cards not being particularly tasty; no chips with anything then!

Game have "Packaged" my package, (Neice's Switch) but haven't yet dispatched.
Amazon haven't yet dispatched anything, either. (My Switch, Zelda and 1-2-Switch)
Lots of green bars that all say "Dispatched 2-March"

My deliveries oughta be here in the morning.
..
.... They'll probably not turn up until about 6pm, knowing our local delivery folk.

Zelda is getting 10s across the board.

51 professional magazine/internet and media-site reviews (so far) on Metacritic give it a 98/100 score.

Wow!!!!
Posted : Thursday, 02 March 2017, 05:25
Jayenkai
Indeed!

Knowing me, I'll probably give up after a few hours, though.
I really don't know why I bought another Zelda.. Every damn time, I say "NO! No more paying for games you don't play through!"
.. And then I buy the next one..

The Great Switchmas Race is on!

My order from Game is coming via DPD. My driver is Steve, and will be here between 9:41 and 10:41
I'm delivery #8 on his route, and he's currently on delivery #1.

Meanwhile, my order from Amazon is "..out for delivery"
With no more information than that.

When I order something I only get a rough estimate when they are at the door. Can be between 9am and 2pm ect.

I watched some Zelda gameplay and was not that impressed with the puzzles and indoor maps. I only watched a few minutes though. But the reviews are so good so I wil watch some more gameplay later on.

It is being said it is somewhat like Skyrim!

I usually start walking to the door a lot when I am waiting for something to arive

DPD Steve has been, and my god the Switch is small!!!
Now waiting for games to go with it...
... come on, Amazon!!!

Verdict so far. The "pulling controllers from the device" is a little less smooth and quirky than I thought. Less a "simply lift up" and more of a "hold button pull, push device down at the same time so it doesn't lift off"
.. but realistically, that's probably for the sake of it's own sturdiness.

Logged into my My Nintendo account, but have to grab my Mii via other (Amiibo) methods, because it apparently won't grab the data from my My Nintendo account. Hmm..

Gonna have to wait for my games to show up, now :/

Second track, I got slightly better, and came 5th.. Mum came 10th!

Fun!!

Postie's just been and delivered Zelda!

So, does Fast RMX feel like F-Zero GX then I wander?

I'd say it feels more like Wipeout. I mean, I know they're basically the same, but it definitely feels more like a new Wipeout than a new FZero.

Played Zelda for a while. Nice!!
