Default Nintendo Switch

The Switch and Zelda are awesome. I played for 5 hours straight last night, 3 of which I streamed. That is all.

I inboxes this am and will play tomorrow after charging. I'm not sure why I thought it was going to be bigger. The small joy cons feel interesting. I'm hopeful thru are not too small to use for portable gaming.

I got a pro controller right off the bat, I think it's a lot more comfortable than the joycons with the grip.

That would be correct if you're playing something like Zelda.

I've heard it has crap performance on Zelda. ~20fps in combat / graphically intense areas? Can anyone confirm?

Heck no. It looks terrible.
