I have fond memories of playing SNES and GameCube games (mostly DKC trilogy, SMW, Melee, Bloody Roar Primal Fury), and I bought a Wii for $35 a few years ago. Been thinking about a Switch.

But I do have a question, does the absolutely stacked first-party selection make up for the lack of AAA third-party games? I mean the GameCube and Wii didn't have many either, but the third-party support dropped off a cliff with the Wii U. Indie games are on the Switch but AAA games have mostly stayed away due to the weaker hardware.

Well, one thing I can say is that if you have Switch Online Membership, you can play some SNES and NES games for free on the Switch. Whether your preferred games are there, unsure.

I don't think many people have the Switch as their only console. They own it in addition to another platform to play the AAA third party titles.

i am definitely missing not having CoD, this is my only 'current gen' console. i wish they would add some sort of CoD and rainbow 6, possibly vegas 1 and 2.

finding the fighting & FPS games are a little lacking in variety. though i am playing overwatch and suck at it

The switch has nothing outside of Nintendo titles and the odd port like stardew valley, diablo, etc

Unless you love platformers, the consoles library is incredibly weak imo. Which isn’t the end of the world as a lot of the Nintendo games are great, but it’s nowhere near Xbox/PS in terms of overall library

I called Kerrisdale, they had two in stock and I had them put aside one for me. But this is the luck of the draw.

If you're even thinking about getting a Switch, get one now if you can. I think once shelves are cleared, we won't see them around for a while.

You might even be able to sell them for a profit in a few months, if you're that kind of person.

Next time what you can do is ask them to look up which stores might have some. They have access to an inventory system that is updated daily. It's not real-time but it will narrow it down for you to which stores might have stock that you can call.

That's a good idea, thank you.

----------------------------------

And dapper not sure why you failed me but I can't see Toys R Us being an "essential" service and are probably closed like a lot of other retail stores and most of downtown.

If you google Toys R Us all their stores say closed.
