    All reviews seem good. 400 plus seems like enough to me, but I’m no Poke expert.

    How’s the board like it

    Really enjoyed it after one game. Got through the first gym last night.

    The strength of wild mons grows quickly just changing from area to area in the wild zone

    wild area is dope. haven’t left it.

    if they applied that to a future open world pokemon game, then baby you got a stew going

    there’s a setting to turn off the movie cut scenes if you check under options i believe

    completely unrelated to your post, but you can also change the difficulty a little bit by changing the default ‘shift’ battle style to ‘set’

    the D-pad is good

    the "left-stick drift" is still an issue (even bigger on the Lite since you can't just swap it out for a new joycon)

    comfortable to hold though it can be awkward using the right stick for extended periods of time, like in Doom. Also reaching for the minus button means either curling your thumb over the left stick or just sliding your thumb over to it (which means inadvertently moving the stick)

    decent battery life

    Fire-type starter for me, as per tradition (outside of X)

    So I have a six year old son who is dead set on getting the Nintendo switch for Christmas. I was trying to steer him towards an Xbox s. Am I wrong in thinking the Nintendo platform is cool but at 300$ vs 150$ is it really twice as cool?

    xbox s might be obsolete in a year and the switch wont be for 5+. also, nintendo has a lot more games aimed at a younger audience than other platforms.

    The switch lite is $200 and places are offering deals like $25 gift card with purchase

    it’s handheld only but then don’t have to worry about kid taking up a tv, and better battery life if you wanna take it on the road

    Well to be honest I don’t mind the tv option I actually prefer it because he can’t read yet so it will be best when we play it together and I can use prompts as an opportunity to help teach him. I also wanted something to keep myself entertained after he goes to bed, but a lot of the Nintendo games don't seem as interesting to me as the Xbox joints. I just don’t want to end up with a dust collector. What are the best titles right now?

    It’s incredible. It’s been on sale too so hopefully you can snag it because Nintendo’s titles rarely go on sale.

    Beat Luigi’s Mansion 3 with my 5 y/o, playing co-op. It was fun bonding with him over it, but I’m glad that is done. Some parts of the game are genuinely difficult, and having to constantly bail out someone made it almost rage inducing at times.

    Are you sure you didn’t play with my wife? I’m tagging along as Gooigi and taking down most of the ghosts. She genuinely enjoys searching for the hidden stuff though and finds most of it.
    Might need to dive back into Captain Toad since that is essentially how she plays this.

    Hope she takes advice and follows directions better than my son. Be prepared for using two controllers simultaneously, when your kid doesn’t know what to do and throws it in your lap.

    With that said, it is a well designed game and has some very fun moments. The high fives and hugs from your kid will make it worthwhile.
