Currently enjoying Wolf2. Playing it on a hard setting which is taking longer but I am getting there. Love the ‘alternate timeline’, very similar to Fallout. In fact, I’ve had to visit New York after it had been hit by a nuclear bomb - Very fallout-y.

I really want to get the Nintendo Switch as Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu is out next month and it looks really exciting and I have played every Pokemon gen.

The Switch is so expensive though. It costs more than an Xbox One S that has 1TB of storage AND TWO GAMES IN A BUNDLE :eek::eek::eek:

I can remember the days when Nintendo was far cheaper than Sony and Microsoft.

The Wii was fantastic value but the Switch is over £100 more expensive than it was.

I've thought of selling my New 3DS XL to contribute towards the cost but then I'd lose access to all the generations of Pokemon I can play on it, as well as the other DS and 3DS games I have.

I was hoping they would bring out a Switch Lite or maybe one that is only portable or only a home console at a lower price but I've had no such luck.

I am thinking of going back to uni in a few years so I don't know if financially it is really worth getting as it is a lot of money and it is just a false need wanting it as I don't need it to love but I just love Pokemon and have played it since I was a kid and first got Pokemon Yellow on my GameBoy Colour.

I am kinda planning to get my Switch through Amazon as I thought I could put my Amazon vouchers that some sites pay with towards it to help lower the cost a bit.


Hmmmm.....

I'm a bad influence but I'd say just buy the switch.

Sell the new 3DS XL for as much as you can and buy an older gen 3DS (I think the games will all still work). Use the extra cash to put towards your switch.

Or, in true money making styleee, set yourself a target of making £200 extra this month using apps. Then put THAT towards the Switch.

I think there will be a load of offers just after xmas (if you can wait) which will make it cheaper.

Another bad influence but the Switch is sooooooooo worth it! I'm just gutted that we got ours launch because the special addition for Lets Go! is super cute! Then again, the Smash Bros one is amazing too.

Set aside vouchers, and like Rev said, set a goal to earn the cash for that reason. You won't regret it ;)

Is it all going to be ‘fortnite’ type games or classic cod multi-player things like Hardcore Kill Confirmed (My only gaming mode)

And Zombies? I’ve tried it a few times and its not for me. A bit like S&D or other other multi-player COD options.

Treyarch have said they are going to alter and play with the game mode so i'm sure it won't always be last man/team standing..

Man I trust them when it comes to Multiplayer
