A tough as nails 2D platformer about living with anxiety, Celeste might not scream ‘fun’ in the same way Super Mario Odyssey does but this charming tale about climbing a mountain aboslutely ranks as a Nintendo Switch essential. The key is in its simplicity with each level being divided into bite-sized chunks that you’ll fail at over and over until finding your way across a seemingly insurmountable crevasse. The further towards the summit, the more challenging things get and the more powers you’ll amass to help you acheive the seemingly impossible.

The Nintendo Switch is approaching a year of existence and, what was once an incredibly underserved console is now overflowing with games to pick up and play. Trying to find titles on the eShop can be an absolute farce, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back with our guide to the best Nintendo Switch games around.
It would be hard to imagine running into a gamer who hasn’t played or at the very least, heard of Super Meat Boy. The video game was a massive success and a highly addicting and challenging platform title by indie developers Team Meat.
Nobody imagined Mario and Rayman’s Raving Rabbids would make such a wonderful match. We especially didn’t expect the pairing to translate into a deep, compelling and unbelievably charming strategy title.
Bayonetta 2 is an excellent game, with fast-paced and satisfying combat, jaw-dropping animations and frankly outstanding fashion. Even better, when you purchase a physical copy of Bayonetta 2, you’ll also receive a free download code for the original game.
GameStop is also offering bundles for $599.99 that are guaranteed to arrived by April 16, but that’s a lot of money to make sure you get a system. The bundle also includes some items that you may not want to buy, such as Just Dance 2017 and the Breath of the Wild strategy guide.

Players will be treated to new weapons, stages, and more game modes. The game has also been improved upon visually. Local and online multiplayer are available, too. Difficult to get bored with the game, as it’s consistently and continually updated.
Doom may be one of the most unexpected additions to Nintendo’s console we’ve seen so far, yet it translates surprisingly well to the Switch. Don’t expect the resolution to be as sharp as what you’d get on a more powerful console or PC, but this roaringly fast-paced shooter shines in handheld mode. There’s also some integration with the Joy-Cons motion controls for performing glory kills.
The Nintendo Switch is by far the most dissapointing Nintendo console they ever made. The lack of games is the biggest problem. There are very few games on the console and the best games , Zelda Breath of the wild and Mario Kart 8 are also available on the Wii U system which makes it even more useless. There is also many rports of problems with the stand and scratch made to the screen and problems with the controllers. I dont recommend buying this console unless you are a huge Nintendo fan.
This whole Switch launch has made me appreciate more what Apple does for its customers for new product launches. Is Apple perfect, nope, but compared to what a lot of Canadians are dealing with on preorders (especially from Best Buy), Apple really knows the important of it’s online/preorder customers.
The Nintendo Switch may be the baby of the console market but that’s not stopped it taking the world by storm. A far bigger hit than the Wii U that came before it, the Switch has the potential to be one of the best selling Nintendo consoles in recent history.
