I love the basic design and functionality of the system. Simple, but incredibly diverse. Nintendo is definitely trying to bring back some of the Wii audience. Makes me happy. System price is a little high though.
The games are a mixed bag to me.
The new 3D Mario is weird. Mario in the real world? What is this, 3D Sonic? If 2D Mario gets some real effort, it’ll crush this game, even in hype. This is no Mario Galaxy. I’m telling you, as a long time 3D Mario fan, this game will not perform all that well. It’s too weird, and I can tell the gameplay is lacking. It’s taking too much inspiration from Super Mario Sunshine, which is a huge mistake.
Zelda looks good, despite some questionable content (terrible voice acting, lame characters).
It’s nice to see Skyrim, but I don’t know if I’ll get it. It’s really good that Nintendo got that game though.
Mario Kart 8.5 is not worth it if it’s $60. I don’t need to buy the game twice at full price.
The boxing game looks interesting, but seems like it lacks depth.
Splatoon 2 looks cool. I guess I’ll get it.
I’m actually most excited about this:
I want more games like that.
