Even at that price I can't see it being worth it ^_^ I reckon I will be able to pick it up in CEX for less than a tenner in a month :D Even then I probably won't bother ^_^ 

 

 

Just does not interest me at all that one

My preorders are a bit all over the place..

 

Amazon..

Grey Switch (gonna see if my MIL wants this, or cancel)

Neon Stitch (for me)

1, 2 Switch (for about 27 quid after sums vouchers)

 

Also MK and Arms for later..

 

Nintendo sure (the hut group)

Zelda Collectors

 

Argos

Random Snipperclips for 60 quid which will likely be cancelled.

 

Amazon.com

Mario case that I couldn't find in the UK

 

 

MIL wants one, so my preorders list now includes the poverty spec Zelda from Simplygames on top of all of the above :)

Sounds like it was a good job you'd already fully paid. Or, byebye!

 

I know!  They'd have had one seriously pissed off 15 year old staring blankly at them over the counter..

They also didn't have Shadows of the Empire available at launch, so I walked to my local Virgin Megastore with a BIG HMV bag in my hand to buy it.  The guy at the games counter looked at me as I handed the box over to purchase the game, then explained asked me if I had it pre-ordered.  When I said no, he disappeared and come back with a fresh, sealed copy from the back store and said they had some extras.  He then proceeded to explain that his manager had told him that he had to explain that I'd need an N64 to play the game on and that t wasn't available on SNES or Playstation.  I grinned and raised my left hand to display my freshly purchased console, then had a 15 minute discussion with the guy about the console, how he was too late to get one, and had played about half of Mario 64 on their demo pod after hours!

What's the story on USB to USB-C cables?  I ordered a cheap one from China, a 3 metre one, but have since read some stuff about a certain resister or something in decent cables, and some devices not playing well with cheap cables.  is it fact, or fear mongering?

Is there any disadvantage to USB-Micro plus an adaptor like the one you've got there (at least I assume that's what they are..)

 

 

 

 

...also my Amazon console pre-orders now say "Arriving Friday" 

 

Man, Amazon really know how to add to the hype of these things :D

I think this thing is going to be thinner on the ground than people expect, especially the neon.

 

*Rubs hands together*

 

Definitely neon. Even Tesco's massive pile of neons has sold out now.

 

Greys seem plentiful as fuck though. I don't think we'll have a Wii situation with this.

There is some truth, yes.

I don't think so, no.

Thank fuck for that penny taking the edge off things.

 

Edit - Shopto have just charged me as well. £407.42 for Switch, Zelda, Pro Controller and case. This week is going to be the absolute worst.

Just checked and I preordered from ShopTo on October 21st when the placeholder price was £9999.


I had a grey ordered from a similar date. Then I added a neon order when they went up on Shopto and after deliberating for a month or so cancelled the original grey.

So I guess I'm a bit further down the list! :)

Mine from Amazon is still saying 'Arriving March 3rd' - ordered about 6 hours after the pre-orders went live, so should be good.

 

My launch day stuff:

 

1 x Switch (Mortgage Grey)

1 x Breath of the Wild (Paupers No-Sword Standard Edition)

1 x Hori Hard Case

1 x USB C cable to I can plug it into the mains and play at work or wherever

 

Wavering on Bomberman, but the price... yeah, not wanting to spend that on it. Will certainly be getting Fast RMX from the e-store.

Am I imagining that the neon joycons are just more saturated versions of the two good GBA colours?

 

Seeing as the two good GBA colours are, like the Gamecube, indigo and spice orange, I fear the answer there is a resounding "no".

 

In other news, my Nintendo store preorder (from 14 January) dispatch date continues to gnaw at me:

That'll teach me to go to the source.

My Switch order on Amazon says:

"Arriving Fri, 3 Mar

Pre-ordered"

 

But my Zelda BotW WiiU order on Amazon says:

"Arriving Friday

Not yet dispatched"

 

Does that mean that the game is more locked into arrive on Friday than the Switch? Why does one give the date but the other just the day? Buggin out!!!!

 

I know you can't play the WiiU version on the Switch...

My almost-locked-in preorder list:

Boring Grey Switch (Amazon)

Zelda (Amazon)

Bomberman (Base)

 

Still under consideration:

Zelda Collectors Guide (the £25 one)

Pro Controller

Fast RMX

 

Still waiting in vain on:

A golden neon ticket email from Gameseek to help budget for the above considerations.
