YES! I just purchased a Nintendo Switch, Breath of the Wild, and a RDS carrying case from Walmart! I got lucky and they had 2 units left! :O Apr 28, 2017 at 4:42 PM

        If you guys ever do want a protector, tempered glass doesn't show dust or create bubbles like the plastic ones do. The amfilm ones comes two in a pack, and have a 5 star rating with close to 5000 reviews. Grade A stuff in my book. Not needed if you don't use them, but highly recommended if you feel the need. Piece of mind for me. https://tinyurl.com/kod2zc6

        Wow I actually want this quite badly! It reminds me of what an awesome theoretical "Nintendo DS2" could have been. The idea of removing the sub-par 3D, while having better battery life than the original 3DS-XL sounds great to me. It'll be the perfect complement my Switch that I plan on only using in TV-Mode.

        Oh my! :O

        I still can't believe you plan on using Switch in TV mode only. My Switch will spend 75% of it's time with me at work, hanging out with gamer friends, and at the bar! The other 25% of it's time it will be "docked" at home for TV play.

        But yeah, this "New" 2DS XL announcement came out of nowhere, huh? I think I'll pass on the handheld, but it still is pretty cool Nintendo is committed to portables! :D

Best Buy told me to come back on Friday as they are getting their next shipment. Walmart said something similar. I guess I'm just SOL and have to keep checking with them. Oh well, I'm still happy for zodaex all the same! :)

        Fair enough, shadowman. I wish I had more time to play games, but I keep pretty busy with work and other activities, so on average, I only play just a few hours a day or less. My Vita only sees 2 to 3 hours of gaming a week, the rest of the game time I do is on home console. I'm looking forward to seeing what time of time im able to get in with the Nintendo Switch, though. Hopefully more time than my Vita is seeing.

        I actually ended up platinum'ing the game (because its really easy to do) and I skipped this release. I've got a super cheap Japanese copy but no way would I get it again. The story is bad and the characters are all written terribly (and that's like 60% of the game!). The only good thing is the graphics and boss designs (which are really good) but its not enough to save it.

        No doubt Kyle I think that Toukiden 2 has far more to offer than God Eater 2: Rage Burst does. Just being able to run around and explore an open world alone makes the game awesome in my opinion. Not to fail to mention Cross-Play / Save with the PS4 version of the game. Also, from what I understand, Toukiden 2 is nowhere near as repetitive Story encounter wise as God Eater 2 is.

        I'm thinking I may go ahead and order the PS4 version of Toukiden 2 to compliment my gaming experience. I know the game is PS TV compatible, but still. Haha.

        In actuality, pretty much all consoles, handhelds, and PC are worth owning in their own way. It just depends on what suits your wants and needs the best. Also, the games available for the device of your choosing. :)

        Very true. It's just a shame is all. Happened most recently again with Mass Effect: Andromeda. :/

        That game is straight up beta. At least BioWare promised patches for months to come to bring the game out of beta and into Goldmaster final release. Still tho! They should have just delayed the game a few months and polished it! Now they left us fans with a sour taste in our mouths. Almost as bad as No Mans Sky.

        Good bet, Miguel I was leaning closer to $500 USD myself, but I can totally see Microsoft selling their newest Xbox at a loss, just to gain some market saturation and have a strong competitor against Sony's PS4 Pro. At any rate, I won't be buying the Scorpio. Gaming at 4K 60fps? Thats more powwa than I need! I'm happy with 1080p 30fps ~ 60fps on my Pro. :)
