Top 5 Most Anticipated Nintendo Switch Games

  We've finally gotten a thorough look at the Nintendo Switch and the games it will feature. While it has a pretty barren launch, the 3DS did too, and it ended up being one of Nintendo's best consoles. There's going to be a lot of good games on the Switch, and we've already seen some of them. Here are my picks:

#5.) Splatoon 2

 I'll be honest. I never got a chance to play the first Splatoon, as I don't own a Wii U. I always thought it looked interesting though, and I'm glad to see it come to the Switch. The new editions like a really cool jetpack and increased character customization only make Inkopolis seem like more and more of an appealing destination.

 #4.) SnipperClips

 Snipperclips honestly really surprised me with how much it grabbed my interest. I didn't think anything of it during it's brief appearance during the sizzle reel, but when I saw gameplay of it on Nintendo Treehouse afterwards, I was hooked. The characters are cute and funny, the mechanics are very intriguing, and the co-operation required will certainly bring in lots of fun. The game will only be $20 as well, so buying SnipperClips is a no-brainer.

 #3.) ARMS

ARMS also caught me by surprise. At first I thought it was simply a Wii Sports clone, but upon further inspection, it seems to have a lot of depth. This is one game where motion controls actually seem like the better option, even though they are thankfully optional. ARMS seems perfectly suited for the JoyCons, as well. I can't wait to whip my arms across the playing field to strike my unique and colorful opponent.

 #2.) Super Mario Odyssey

 I'll be honest, it was hard to decide between the inevitable #1 and #2. Both games are instant system sellers. After careful consideration, I decided to put Super Mario Odyssey in the #2 slot. This doesn't mean it won't be as good of a game as #1, but I went with my gut on what I am anticipating.

  Super Mario Odyssey looks ready to breathe new life into an admittedly stale series. We're finally getting new mechanics, new characters, an expansive world to do whatever we please in, and just in general a feeling of refreshment. Holiday 2017 can't get here fast enough.

 #1.) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild very well may be my most anticipated game ever. I'm completely in love with this game. I genuinely shake just thinking that I'll have my hands on it in less than two months. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about this game. It's insanely beautiful. The gameplay looks fun. The story looks emotional and engaging. This March 3rd, we'll all be in for the game of a lifetime.

Fire Emblem Has The Potential To Become Huge

We just got one of the best Nintendo Directs ever. Concise editing, to-the-point writing, awesome announcments, and an exciting voice-over by Yuri Lowenthal really made this presentation a home run. Let's dig into the meat of this greatness.
 Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is my kind of remake. It's not as cut-and-dry as most game remakes these days. Obviously a game would need some polishing up on its 25th anniversary, but this is really a knockout job on Nintendo's part. The original game, Fire Emblem Gaiden, was released in Japan only, but it was a very important game for the series. The innovations of this game shaped the series into what it is today. Nintendo is honoring this by completely rebuilding it from the ground up. They've added beautiful anime cutscenes, 3D graphics, and even a fully 3D free-roam dungeon crawling mechanic. 25 years later and Intelligent Systems is still innovating. I certainly can't wait to get my hands on this game on May 1…

Nintendo Switch Review

Nintendo has always been innovative. They always try to do something new and creative. It doesn't always work, as the Wii U showed us, but they always try. No matter how you feel about Nintendo in recent years, you have to admit that they always try to do something unique. The Switch is no different.

 The Nintendo Switch signals a new era of Nintendo. We all know that. However, at its core, it is still very much a Nintendo console, in the best and the worst ways. It comes with all the charm you'd expect. It has a lot of the barriers that are a Nintendo signature at this point. I'm speaking in very vague terms, but there is a lot to say about the Switch. Let's just dig into it.

 The specs on the Switch are honestly nothing that impressive. However, as they always have, Nintendo makes the most of them. Although the screen is only 720p, much lower than the modern expectation, the games all look beautiful on the screen. The display is so crisp. I'm sure it will depen…

How I Changed My Mind On The Launch Lineup and 1-2 Switch

If we're being honest, the original Nintendo Switch launch lineup was pretty weak. It featured a measly five games, two of which were third party ports that will likely not sell at all. However, in the five weeks since the Nintendo Switch was fully revealed, this lineup has grown. It's grown a lot.

 A lot of games have been added since the initial lineup. The launch that originally consisted of five games is now at least twelve games. I am Setsuna, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, World of Goo, Little Inferno, Human Resource Machine, Snipperclips, and Fast RMX have all been added to the March 3rd release day.

 The lineup in general has grown exponentially. Reddit user /u/AbsoluteMagnitude has been consistently updating the original lineup picture with every game announcement. The image above is their most recent version of the wallpaper. There are an incredibly large amount of games here, and the numbers just keep climbing.

 Due to the growing launch, I'm a lot more excite…
