I have a Switch for the past week and a half, and I bloody love it.
I'll admit that my objectivity may be as compromised as Dash Decent reviewing a hardback 'Dash Decent' collection, but anyway;
The switch itself, without the dock / Joy-cons is far more compact than you'd ever imagine.
This had the effect of both impressing the hell out of me and making me fell slightly disappointed at the same time. After the first few hours playing it, any reservations about the size subsided- it's the perfect size / weight (for my 39 year old butcher's sausage fingers anyway).
I genuinely found it quite comfortable to use in any configuration.
Apart from looking the business, all parts of the console feel sturdy and well manufactured (the same could not be said for the Wii U).
It's definitely the most aesthetically pleasing Nintendo console since the GameCube.
Fortunately I haven't been affected by any of the flaws that have been reported in the media (although I am skeptical about the reports that the Switch screen is being damaged when placing it in and out of the dock- likely only possible by careless mishandling IMO).
The 32Gb hard drive issue was easily overcome by a 50 quid 128GB micro SD card from Argos. Same solution for memory expansion as the Wii U then, although I would understand why some would prefer not to have to shell out for this.
There are currently slim pickin's on the eShop / Virtual Console, although I was surprised that several Neo Geo games were available from day 1 (I've never had the opportunity to play most of these before, so will get a few of them).
The Virtual Console range can only improve over time of course, and there's no reason to doubt it will expand further than ever before.
As for the main event game itself; The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild- it is, pun intended, breath-taking.
I've been playing it hardcore since last Tuesday (and I mean hardcore) and it seems I've barely scratched the surface.
It looks absolutely gorgeous, but it's the ingenious design and game-play (scientifically known as "Nintendo magic") that make you want to play it as soon as you wake up, work or hangover be damned.
The game begins in a (huge) initial sand-box area, the only area in the game (so far) where any guidance is given. After that- you're on your own to do anything / go anywhere (all areas are accessible / all surfaces are scalable) and figure it all out as you make progress.
Believe the hype and the 10/10 reviews- this is as perfect a game as I've ever played.
As an aside- the Switch game cartridges are tiny. All the more amusing that my special edition of the Zelda game arrived in a box so large it could be used as an eco-friendly coffin for Proudhuff.
