  1. I’ll ask my husband to buy me a Switch and a new 3DS.
    I’ve been missing Super Mario World. Childhood memories die hard.

  2. I’m happy bioshock is coming to switch, seems the switch is getting some awesome games, black flag on switch is awesome, I hope bioshock doesn’t dip a lot in framerate and is stable

  3. FINALLY!!!!!!! BIOSHOCK 😭😢😫😱🤯🤮👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  4. Can't believe we still don't have ports of GTA5(it ran on 360/PS3), Madden and Call of Duty(maybe CoD4 remaster). These are huge franchises that would sell on Switch. VITA got all of these franchises and the Switch install base is light years beyond the Vita.
