Salutations everyone! Here is my comprehensive/initial reaction of the Nintendo Switch after the press conference. What can the Switch do? What does this imply and entail for the future of gaming as we know it? Breath of the Wild hype, JRPG rise up in the West, and joy all over.
It’s no surprise that the gaming community has simultaneously become super connected, and disconnected all at the same time. Among ourselves and at conventions I’ve seen nothing but love and support, but it’s always going to be those who scream loudest that will garner the most attention. I believe a lot of this comes from wifi gaming and our disconnection with each other. The Switch could completely change that and help fix a lot of the problems that the gaming community has, simply by making us look at each other.
