I feel kinda obligated to start this thread, but happy Switch launch day, everyone! It's the beginning of a new console generation, and new era, for Nintendo.
I know not all of us are getting the system right away, but for those that are, feel free to post your initial thoughts and impressions here. I'd be interested in reading them.
I have to admit, I don't really feel too hyped for it, myself. I don't intend to get one until sometime later this year, hopefully when Nintendo has had the chance to iron out the wrinkles, implement the missing features, and release more games for it. I think I agree with Kevin Cassidy of GoNintendo when he argued that the Switch was getting a "soft launch," meaning that it wasn't intended to be running at full speed right out of the gate, but would be gradually ramping up throughout the year.

Everything about it looks like a soft launch. I suppose 20 games on day 1 (Japan, blah blah blah) isn't bad at all, and given the system's slow production (conspiracy says this is intentional on Nintendo's part), I think it makes sense for Nintendo to roll out the system to one group at a time. Zelda players get it first, and if you're looking for other games, please wait a bit.
I'm still busy with my 3DS and Wii U. But speaking as a non-user, I'm glad to see the system rolling out without any major incident. I still haven't heard anything like server jam or massive cases of the system update killing systems (except this), which is certainly good news.

Does Nintendo ever send this kind of congratulatory message to their rivals? I'm under the impression that they don't return kind words to them. I can understand their Japanese Twitter account not doing anything (since it's an announcement channel more than anything), but NOA really should have at least (publicly) say something.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
