    I ended up buying one on launch day and ignoring the cost (which made my wallet weep) I'm really satisfied with my purchase. I play via handheld mode about 70% of the time but whenever I feel like gaming on the TV the Pro Controller feels great to use: nice weight, good sized buttons, and the grips are an appreciated touch. My only gripe is that its gyros were a bit too sensitive for Splatoon 2's testfire, so I'd likely either adjust the sensitivity next time 'round or just play Splatoon 2 in handheld mode.

    I'm picking up both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Puyo Puyo Tetris later this month. :) As much as I've been loving Breath of the Wild on my Switch (my playtime has capped 80-85 hours now, can't recall which) it'll be nice to finally have something else to poke at.

    Sweet mother of God ;_; Switch purchase vindicated! I'm only half joking too....

    The rest of it I'm not sure I could care less about tbh, I kinda want the Fate/Extella game at somepoint but I see zero reason to get the Switch version over the PS4 one.

    I was very happy with the Direct tbh, love the new format.

    Arms and SPlatoon 2 both look great. Still waiting to see the single player content for both though first before committing to buy.

    Fate Extella, Battle Chasers and Nights of Azure 2 (JPN Stream) were very pleasant and welcome surprises. They're all on my list.
