One year Nintendo Switch - owners' impressions - Offtop on DTF

Console owners from the DTF edition share their opinions.


It has been a year since the release of the Nintendo Switch - it appeared in retail on March 3, 2017. Sales at the console are excellent, there are enough good games - everything needs to be summarized somehow. We found out who in the DTF editorial office took the Switch and asked them to share their thoughts: what you can play and whether the purchase was repulsed by emotions.

If you have something to tell - welcome to the comments.

Oleg Chimde: the third platform in a row

I've had a sad story with Switch so far. I rode a bit in Mario Kart 8, ran The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, getting damn tired in the process, went through an excellent Super Mario Odyssey with my niece and . .. everything. Since the end of December, the console has been collecting dust next to the PlayStation 3 in languid anticipation of Pokémon, SMT and Fire Emblem.

Most likely, the matter is in the type of consumption. I don’t go to work by public transport, but work from home, which means Switch as a portable device is not very relevant for me. In indies that are now massively coming to Switch, I play either on PC or on PS4. So in my personal list of gaming platforms, the Nintendo console is in my third place.

However, I don't regret the purchase, of course: Mario alone paid for the Switch in full for me. In the meantime, let it lie down, the tea will not spoil.

Zakhar Bocharov: credited, you have been rehabilitated

As a Nintendo fan, it was very painful for me to watch Wii U. Two and a half games a year, E3 conferences with depressing announcements compared to competitors, the endless need to endure the imperfections of hardware in order to be able to play my favorite series. And some of them held up decently (Super Smash Bros., Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3), while others were tough in quality (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, Paper Mario: Color Splash). It became obvious: Nintendo is gradually recognizing the failure of stationary hardware and is preparing a replacement. There is an unplanned change. We must be patient.

Switch caused a storm of doubts - power, form factor, original library of games. But the twelve months that have passed since the start have smashed all skepticism to smithereens. 2017 was a huge comeback year for Nintendo, and my jubilation was boundless.

I got a console in the summer and still have never thought about what to play. The luxurious The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey have been completed, a lot of games are still on the line - Splatoon 2, Mario and Rabbids, Skyrim, Xenoblade 2. The question is rather how to find the time.

Of course, not only new items are on the list, but Switch is a surprisingly pleasant piece of iron for catching up. The same The Elder Scrolls V on the small screen looks very neat, although in the regular version of seven years ago it still got tired. I don't want to play Darkest Dungeon, Enter the Gungeon, or Celeste on the big screen (I don't have a Vita) - but the half-hour night runs are a hit. The hybrid set-top box format seemed wild to me, but in fact it became an innovation that worked. Very often I catch myself thinking that I will buy a particular game if it comes out on Switch.

Nintendo no longer needs to be scattered between several platforms (3DS is already objectively getting crumbs from the master's table), so the most delicious - exclusives - began to appear much more often. In addition to the mentioned "Mario" and "Zelda" - look at their ratings! — Splatoon 2, Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Xenoblade 2 were released in the first year. This is a powerful start, and full releases of Fire Emblem and Pokemon, Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta 3 and Super Smash Bros. are coming soon. Even in terms of the number of titles, this is very inspiring.

I don't want to be a 100% fanboy: the console has its downsides. It does not work without recharging, and due to its power, there is almost no actual multiplatform. As a replacement for a stationary console, the Switch will only work for undemanding players. But as a second set-top box, especially a portable one, it's almost perfect. Definitely the best purchase last year, with a pleasant, forgotten feeling as a bonus. The feeling that you can be proud of your favorite company again, and more and more people are imbued with its philosophy. On the day I bought Super Mario Odyssey, I canceled everything and, like a child, hurried home to play a new platformer - isn't this the lost magic of childhood?

Sergey Matveev: instead of a bedtime story

Nintendo Switch and I got used to each other for a long time. The easiest way to compare this is with relationships. Sounds ridiculous, but judge for yourself.

At first there was a period of excitement and joy from owning a new console, I tried to spend every free minute with it. Then there was a sharp decline in interest, a period of insidious betrayals, when I preferred to go through the new releases of the season on PC, while Switch was lonely gathering dust on the shelf. And now I come home from work every day and in the evening, tired, I fall into a chair with Switch in my hands. No previous passion, but calm and spiritual pleasure from the game. Only if in a relationship it all takes decades, it only took me a year.

Approximately for the entire period of adaptation, my passage of the new Zelda also stretched. I finished it just a week ago, some moments and mechanics were not weakly annoying, other situations and missions were delightful and blew the roof off. I have a fad: if you already pass the game, then you should squeeze all the juice out of it. Consequently, I went through all the sanctuaries, closed all additional tasks, collected all the photos for the Hyrule atlas, and pumped all the armor to the maximum. As a result, after a hundred hours - the penetration into the castle, the battle with Ganon, the credits and the smile of Zelda. I exhaled with peace of mind, for me it was more of a gestalt that needs to be closed.

Little indie games gave me a little more vivid emotions. A year ago, I advocated bringing more indie “with soul” to the Switch, because a portable console is not only about trying to play in a cramped subway or a shaking bus. A portable device, both physically and mentally, is much closer to the player than a monitor or TV, so you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the game much faster and stronger with it. I replayed Switch Oxenfree, Detention and Night in the Woods - the sensations and emotions are much brighter, as if the characters themselves have become closer and dearer.

Therefore, today for me, Nintendo Switch is not so much a set-top box of exclusives as a great platform for soulful indie games, emotional stories. And to get these true emotions, I'm even ready to overpay.

Nikita Losev: wrong format

I've never been a fan of Nintendo, so my relationship with the Switch is not easy. Before that, I didn’t have a single “big N” console - not that it was a conscious desire, I just didn’t join. Switch, in the end, I bought only at the end of November, almost nine months after the release of the device. Like many, I was primarily attracted to Zelda and Mario (even two at once, since I also bought Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at the same time), so in the end the desire overcame all doubts.

Three months later, I don't regret my purchase. I’m still slowly going through Breath of the Wild (very little left), barely touched Super Mario Odyssey and traveled a bit in Karting. At the same time, like some of the colleagues who unsubscribed above, Switch closes my list of gaming platforms, and for good reason.

Home - I'm an avid PC player, and although I can turn a blind eye to some of the shortcomings of other devices for the sake of exclusives, sometimes habits still make themselves felt. It’s easier and more convenient for me to run something on Steam (it’s not for nothing that I bought my video card) or turn on some kind of session. On Switch, the choice of all this is too limited, and the format is completely different.

The second reason, following from the previous one, is that I don't play indies on the Switch, and they are most often uninteresting to me in this form. Yes, I've bought a few discounted games, so there's always something to play when I'm on the road. But, with the exception of the main exclusives and, in part, the two parts of Bayonetta, something else does not attract me much.

In addition, I repeat after Oleg, I don't need to travel often, so the portability of the console is nice though (you can play in bed), but I personally don't need it. It's funny that initially I considered Switch first of all as a portable device, and only then - as a home device. As a result, more often than not, I play behind a monitor and even bought a Pro controller for this.

By the way, it deserves a special mention - you no longer need to suffer with Joy-Con controllers, constantly using the console in the docking station. The gamepad turned out to be functional and convenient, and the battery life on a single charge is several times longer than that of the DualShock 4. The only negative is the price, but the pros, in my opinion, are still more important.

After three months of use, my Switch has remained in perfect condition. There were no scratches on the screen, problems with controllers or other troubles. Although the battery does drain incredibly quickly, so you should always keep this in mind.

In general, if you are interested in Nintendo games, then Switch is worth taking without hesitation. My only problem is that I'm used to the PC, and I rarely launch consoles - the PlayStation 4 Pro is also gathering dust in the corner, and the list of console exclusives that have not been completed is constantly growing. But as an additional gaming device that can also be taken on the road, the Switch is ideal.

Artyom Slobodchikov: the ideal companion

I bought the Switch almost by accident. I have long wanted to buy some kind of console, but the money was only for it - there was not enough money for a TV or a good monitor. Why buy a PS4 Pro if you don't have a good screen to enjoy the beauty of Horizon Zero Dawn? Then I thought about Switch: Zelda with high ratings and cool gameplay, the upcoming Mario Odyssey, which then - in September - had not yet been released. Why not.

Unlike Oleg and Nikita, I need to move around the city every day: from home to work, then to study at the magistracy. In this context, Switch became a little “brain explosion” for me: here, in my backpack, there are several full-fledged AAA games, and I can play them right on the subway or train. The only problem is that in the crowd it is not always convenient to get the console out of the case.

In addition, Switch is very good at co-op. 1-2 Switch is the perfect party game, and in Overcooked we often play with a girl who is far from video games at all. By the way, I recommend Overcooked to everyone in general, it is very coolly done.

I've heard about the Switch's technical issues, which are causing some to wait for the next revision of the device, but I haven't encountered any myself: the controllers are in perfect order, the docking station hasn't scratched anything, the battery lasts long enough. In a word, I’m happy with everything and I’m waiting for Dark Souls and Pillars of Eternity 2 to come out on Switch.

how things are going with the Nintendo console three months after the release - Igromania

Sergey Zhigaltsev, regular author of Igromania

Omnivorous in games! He enjoys hacking in Asian Gravity Rush 2 and aiming at enemy hearts in Sniper Elite 4, fighting for intergalactic justice in Halo and enjoying spending years of his life in mobile games.

Among Russian gamers, it is generally accepted that the consoles of the company Nintendo are such cute knick-knacks: they played for one or two months, and you can throw them on the farthest shelf. However, the release of the Nintendo Switch put everything in its place. "Big N" is fighting for a place in the sun, consoles are sold on every corner, and about The Legend of Zelda It seems that even those who did not know about the existence of Link, the princess and the evil Ganon before started talking. The editors of Igromania talk about the success of one of the most amazing platforms of the new time.

The entire gaming history of Nintendo can be divided into two, albeit very conditional, periods. The first of these is an attempt to survive the technological race. It began exactly at the moment when the first batch of Family Computers rolled off the assembly line, an 8-bit miracle that changed the world forever - in Russia it is better known as Dendy.

For a very modest amount, gamers received excellent hardware, the opportunity to try out hundreds of arcade hits and, most importantly, touch the world of virtual entertainment at home, and not in an arcade salon, among smoky walls and a dubious audience.

Of course, the attentive reader will notice: wait, there was Atari and its competitors! That's right - it was. That's just for the release of Famicom, she had already left the scene. The market collapsed, and on its ruins a new one arose. The banners of the winner were just carried by Big N.

Although, of course, it wasn't all that simple. The company took a risk. Nobody believed in the NES (the Western name for the Famicom). I even had to redraw the design - to make the set-top box more like a regular VCR. They even changed the format of the cartridge - go try to put this giant into the Japanese version of the console, without an adapter or any other dances with a tambourine.

VCR-style design is not chosen by chance. With it, Nintendo wanted to distance itself from the mistakes of competitors.

The success of the NES was enormous. Children begged for a console from their parents for Christmas, a themed magazine was published, and advertising films, videos, and even animated series began to be shot. Nintendo was on a roll overnight and held the lead until the Mega Drive/Genesis from SEGA hit the market.

However, not everything went smoothly here either. Albeit belatedly, but the authors of "Mario" responded to the impudent attack of competitors. Their 16-bit Super Nintendo beat the Mega Drive in every way: sound, picture quality, design... So it's no surprise that the SNES won in the end.

Then came the not-so-successful Nintendo 64 ( Ultra 64 nee. - approx. Gambling), the wonderful GameCube ... All these devices had one thing in common - with their help, N wanted to show what she was capable of in technology. For example, the "Cube" was significantly superior in power to the top-end PlayStation 2. But - alas - it did not go to the people, leaving behind the glory of "set-top boxes for children."

The wild success of the Wii never helped Nintendo sell its direct sequel. Wii U turned out to be unnecessary for third-party developers and gamers.

Later, Nintendo realized that it was time for a change. A 360-degree turn, and the Wii appears on the scene - a platform that professes the principle of "graphics is nothing - innovation is everything" . The weak picture (slightly better than on the GameCube!) was redeemed by the approach itself: innovative, breakthrough on all fronts. The success was enormous. If you count the number of boxes sold with the system, it turns out that Nintendo managed to beat both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 dry. Sony did not help Move 0099 Microsoft - Kinect . Too late they rushed to invent an answer.

Anyway, elated by the success of the Wii, Nintendo's managers decided to launch a direct sequel to the Wii. The miracle didn't happen. The world didn't understand the "tablet-console" and independent developers soon lost interest in it. We will not analyze the reasons for the failure of the system here, but we will say that the Nintendo Switch is an attempt to break out into the big leagues again. And so far, N is doing relatively well.

Nintendo's marketing company keyword is "accessibility". With Switch, you can literally play anywhere: in the park on a bench, at home watching TV, in a shopping center, on a train or plane. Yes, even in the closet. The hybrid concept, combined with rather powerful, by mobile standards, iron gives the Switch an advantage in areas where competitors simply pass. For example, in the sector of company entertainment. What can competitors provide? Guitar Hero ? Yes, what else? The "seriousness" of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One just doesn't fit with the idea that entertainment should be... simple.

Nintendo has no such problem at all. Her Switch is a hybrid not only in terms of technology, but also conceptually. Want a portable Skyrim ? There is nothing easier. Do you want to race with a friend in the park, sitting on a bench, racing on the same screen? And there is such a function. That is why it is a little strange to see attacks on the console library. The Big N and its partners are remarkably correct in building the system's library without going the way of Sony's attempt to turn the PS Vita/PSP into a portable version of home systems.

However, the hybrid nature of the device allows the production of quite serious projects. In addition to the continuation of the cult The Legend of Zelda, gamers can already enjoy, for example, the Deluxe version of Mario Kart 8 . On the one hand, these arcade races are quite serious (not cheap nonsense from Google Play, but a series with deep roots!), but on the other hand, they are great both for relaxing at home and for a picnic break somewhere.

And much more

In addition, this year the platform will be visited by a whole bunch of super hits.

Release date: July 21, 2017

The continuation of the acclaimed multiplayer hit from the Wii U library. Even more colors, lots of fun and lots of online battles. One of the gems in the collection for Switch.

Release Date: August 15, 2017

If you're the kind of guy who loves the classic 2D Sonic, you'll (definitely) love this platformer. Here everything is done as of old. Of course, in addition to Switch Sonic Mania will visit other consoles. That's just dragging a PS4 and a TV with you on the bus is not the best option, don't you think?

Release date: September 22, 2017

The release of themed fighting games for the industry is not new. Pokken Tournament DX The style of little monsters is preserved quite correctly, and the game itself will be able to please those who have already driven cute role-playing games to death with 3DS.

Release date: Fall 2017

In the past, Nintendo has had experience supporting a musou game starring its own characters. For those who are not familiar with this phenomenon, here is a little explanation. We are talking about a kind of Dynasty Warriors , only instead of thousands of Chinese - familiar heroes. Surprisingly, this is popular. And what else!

Release date: 2017

The sequel to one of the best jRPGs of recent years just can't be bad, can it? So Nintendo thinks so, and therefore in its advertising campaign allocates a separate place for PR Xenoblade Chronicles 2 . Despite the great excitement, no one promises to postpone the exit yet.

Release date: winter 2017

Heavy artillery goes into battle. The portable version of Skyrim has garnered attention since the Nintendo Switch's debut video. Then another Bethesda , we recall, tried to put up a good face with a bad game and stated that TES 5 for Switch officially does not exist. Nobody believed. So far, one of the most ambitious and big games in the lineup for the Big N system. Explore Skyrim on a plane or train without "crutches" in the form of a laptop - what could be better?

Let us emphasize that the games described above are, firstly, not all that will look at the Switch this year, and secondly, in the future, gamers will have a lot of delicious things to come. For example, a full-fledged continuation of Metroid Prime - a series that has not been heard much since the original Wii. Apparently, Samus' time has come again. Unfortunately, the project does not yet have a release date.

However, one of the most important wins for Nintendo was the marketing win. Previously, the company paid unforgivably little attention to working with ideologically remote regions. Those who once at the end of the 2000s, somewhere in Chelyabinsk, tried to find cartridges for DS, must remember the surprised face of the seller, who had never heard of the existence of such a miracle of technological thought.

Sometimes it got ridiculous. I well remember how an employee of a fairly well-known retail chain tried to prove that the two-screen system from N exists ... only in pink. Obviously, apart from "Pesikov and Marevo", there were no games for her either. In the picture of the world of that seller, anyway.

This is a must-buy controller for those who love classic gaming. The blessing in Russia to get the device is more than real.

Gradually, Nintendo tried to improve the situation with Russian retail. The opening of its Internet platform, the more or less active promotion of Wii U (at least they knew about its existence outside of Moscow and St. Petersburg) - all this will seem strange to some Sony fan, who is used to the fact that all high-profile hits are on the shelves on the day of release. But it was important for those who saw the same GameCube only in pictures in a few specialized magazines. Laughter through tears, and nothing more!

The Nintendo Switch initially escaped the fate of being forgotten in the farthest corner of the warehouse. A gigantic campaign to promote the device has unfolded throughout Russia. Expensive advertising, prompt delivery of new boxes to outlets, active work with the community and, most importantly, localization of key hits and official trailers.
