    He is one of the good ones :( I hope he still plays Zelda at least. I miss you Pinky!

    Excuse me, I think I just came. Shame I haven't gotten an empty bottle.

    Having been watching Danny O'Dwyer's OOT series, this made me laugh!

    @darrenb Ooh, impressions in the Switch thread, please :) (I bet you're writing something up right now :p )

    It is a little disappointing for them to still be using the Switch port of the Wii U build rather than the game itself, especially since the game has went Gold now, but it's understandable as they don't want to have the full game out there and susceptible to being leaked.

    Still nice to hear some impressions though, if you have any darren :)

    If they were using the final build, I imagine they'd then have to create game saves for every demo station at every event. Either that or spend additional time and resources creating a new demo build just for these events. I can see why they wouldn't.

    We were given 10 minutes on it, I deliberately skipped every cut scene as I don't want to really know much until the 3rd, I went today with every intention of not having a go at all. But as for sheer wow factor, YouTube and clips of the game really don't do it justice.

    Controls feel tight (once you get your head used to Nintendo select/back configuration). There is a good sense of depth looking into the distance.

    I just ran about jumping over things and mainly ignoring the story introduction.

    But on the whole, 3rd march can't come quick enough..

    So all the people saying they aren't getting a Switch at launch because Zelda doesn't look mucb better than the Wii U version could be in for a nasty shock?

    @jimnastics possibly... I played splatoon2 today and that seemed a lot different to the first in motion.. to convince myself I've been on splatoon tonight and I would say those thoughts hold.

    Could be, but it's extremely unlikely to be 280 worth of difference. Id love to play it the best way possible but I won't be mugged off by Nintendo again. Give it a year and then we will see but as before with wiiu, just not worth buying at launch.

    @ChiefGB I would say that if you never wanted to play in portable mode that might be true, however, when I played it today on that little screen with all the detail it was amazing as this was all running in the palm of my hand.

    I have a Vita too and I have not seen anything on that that comes remotely close..

    Only ten minutes. Damn. Bet that flew by.

    I saw media impressions of Splatoon 2 that said much the same thing, too.

    @Ror it did fly by, but it's made me want it even more now :)

    Thanks for your thoughts darren. Plenty of fuel for the Hype Train there :)

    @darrenb I'm going to one of these events on the 25th. At least it won't be such a wait to play it again :)

    Mariocart, 1 race 8 player local in portable mode
    Snipperclips , 10 minutes
    Zelda, 10 minutes
    1 2 switch, milking, ball counting and gun duel were available.. had fun :)

    Never managed arms as the queue was long for 10 minute slots

    I'll put extra time aside for Arms by skipping 1,2 Switch :)

    @darrenb nice, I can't wait for the game but the switch handling so far has been a disaster. It's laughable for a launch.

    It really hasn't been that bad :) Sure, they put the cart before the horse a bit when they said they were charging for their online service before telling us any details of said service, and they sure do like talking about "launch window" more than launch day, but generally speaking they've doing quite well. Pre-orders are fairly strong for the console and this Zelda game, word of mouth is generally quite positive, they're getting ads out there, holding events all over the world and making a fairly decent push.

    They've been a bit misguided in their communication, sure, but disastrous and laughable? Not even close :p

    Has there been any clarification as to what we'll be paying for with the online services?

    Not yet. Rumour is approx 25 per year.

    It's not going live until late in the year - they have a while before it's going to be an issue, though it'd obviously be better to know sooner.
