Jeez... I kinda wanted a SNES classic, but... I'm afraid I'd get a beating for it, from the missus. kftongue

The Switch has begun to dominate my console time. I never in a million years would have thought that this would be possible for me. I am gaming for hours every day, and it seems like every week more and more time gets devoted to playing my Switch.

Anyone else have this happening to them?

I've had the Switch for about a month and the only thing that I'm struggling with is the size of the screen and the fineness of graphic detail within those dimensions. It's the same problem with smartphones and tablets, where pixel size has become so small. Using one of these devices too long causes my eye focus to go "lazy" for a period of time afterwards. But with the smartphone, I'm less likely to spend that much time looking at it, whereas on the Switch the level of quality of game can engross me for much longer. And when you too have crossed the 40 year mark, your eyes and body will start to change in unfavourable ways. So I like the Switch and what place it holds in the video game industry, but darn it just might be the first ageist video game system I've owned.

O i left out that because I scratched with a key, its scratched off like half the code before I noticed, so I had to call nintendo support & the guy on the phone explained that it takes that long to get my money back because a lot of people do the same thing

Maybe not an upgrade, but I recommend the Hori NSW-038U Tough Pouch for Nintendo Switch. It's a simple case with a screen-covering flap for holding a few cartridges. What's nice about this one is that the Switch console with its Joy-Cons attached can slip in and out of the case in a second. There is no mesh elastic retainer to make things difficult. So like, if you want to pop it out for a couple minutes of SMO while your spouse left the couch to go to the washroom, then you can. Not that I officially condone such sneaky behaviour around the one that you love and respect.

Game Traveler Deluxe Case from RDR is pretty much the standard. It's affordable, it protects the system well, it's easy to slip in or out, and it comes in Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, or Splatoon varieties.

Two questions:

1.)Has anyone invested in the portable battery packs for the Switch? I'm going on a 10 hour flight relatively soon and wouldn't mind playing some Switch during that time. I've looked online for some updates, but wanted to ask if anyone here personally had any experience with it.

2.) Has anyone's Switch fan kicked on to real high for no reason? I had this happen twice -- no reason, I had no been playing for a long time, unobstructed, just exploring the world. But they kicked on and just kept running high, to the point I turned off the system and turned it back on to stop it.
