I'd say it's already Nintendo's best console since the GameCube, with a real possibility to be their best since the N64.

Yeah, if they can have a run over the next year and a half of some solid releases, I'd agree with that. I know that have Smash Bros, 2 Pokemon games, and rumored Pikmin 4 coming out this year.

They also have more third-party support, in the form of indies and ports of other games, than the Wii U and Gamecube combined through their first two years.

It updated, but I didn't pay for the extra content. Does any of it affect multiplayer? Haven't played it since the automatic update.

I'm not sure what is included with the new DLC. I am intrigued by the more difficult single player content?

Did you ever beat Donkey Kong. I'm doing all the S and K levels right now after beating the main game.

No way Pikmin is a 2018 release.

Bought three games on the Switch time today. Download takes forever, times out, and then cancels itself every single time. Have tried it at three different locations. This is not fun team!
