    Default Playing loads of Switch, what's everyone playing ?

    Hi all,

    I bought a switch not long after release mostly on a whim and to be honest it sat mostly idle for a while, then I played mario Oddysey and everything blew up !

    I finished that and since then I am a complete switch addict. I'm knee deep in games that I'm enjoying and those that I need to play.

    Currently playing

    Doom (I'm about 80% through the campaign)
    Lumo
    Wonderboy
    Donkey Kong TF
    Ikaruga
    Immortal Redneck
    Mario + Rabbids (although I seem to have stalled)

    I've got but still need to start...

    Axiom verge
    Rayman Legends

    I absolutely love my switch, my love affair with it came out of nowhere and I'm addicted. I play about 90% docked with a pro controller but I also like handheld too when the missus is watching TV

    so,

    What is everyone else playing ?

    (Before anyone mentions it, I tried Zelda and couldn't get into it).

    cheers,

    malty

    How long did you give Zelda? It's hands down the best game I've ever played. Took a few hours to get into it though. Arms is pretty good too.

    2 Thanks given to TJB

    I dunno, maybe 4/5 hours. It's just not my type of game. I knew it wasn't before I bought it but the hype made me buy it anyway.

    I tried the Arms global test punch demo and it seemed ok but shallow. Does it get better ?

    I just started Axiom Verge. That plays well if you're into pixelart/retro games but the first boss is kicking my ass at the moment.

    I'd echo that and I've been playing games a similar length of time.

    Zelda is a masterpiece, without a doubt.

    Currently enjoying Bayonetta 1+2, cat quest, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Portal Knights and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

    I’ve been playing games since 1982 and I found it all a bit convoluted and pointless. It’s just not my type of game. I tried it knowing it wasn’t and I was right. Horses for courses...

    I’ve wondered about Bayonetta but around the time I was looking at it I bought Lumo and that’s been great for £15 or whatever it was. I think I’ll pick up b1&2 when there’s a significant price drop as I’m not sure about it. I loved devil May cry back in the day but it’s been a while since I’ve played that sort of game

    Steamworld dig 2, I was glued to the 3DS version for a solid week or so. It's a metroidvania style game, with steam powered digging robots, what more could you want?

    It could do with being a touch more difficult, to apart from that, It's excellent.

    Me and the boy just worked through all the Labo variety set too, which was awesome to do and he still plays the house game and the piano quite frequently. the other games are too difficult for his age.

    I've spent the last few days trying to get Doom finished and also been absolutely loving Axiom Verge - that game is worth every penny.

    Also bought Hollow Knight, looks great and it's very highly regarded - but I haven't started it yet, other than a quick half an hour... I really have to get some other stuff finished.

    Oh and played a bit of Ikaruga in portrait mode. Superb.

    I've hovered over the buy button a few times. Maybe the next time it comes up for sale...

    No one mentioned Mario?? I was thinking of getting a Switch for Mario and the possibility it will be hackable ;-)

    Puyo Puyo Tetris. Found it cheap at Argos.
