This type of thing is VERY subjective and not meant to be hurtful so if you have one or all of the machines listed please do not send hate mail. When you think of THE WORST pin...

Re: Nintendo Switch.... Club?

i really like the online program. For $20 a year you get access to some great old games.
If you want to pair up a pro or PS3 controller to the switch you can get a 8bitdo wireless dongle (pretty cheap on amazon)
it works like a dream!

Re: Nintendo Switch.... Club?

Love the switch, they really did a lot right on this system.
they are bringing Fire Emblem Three Houses and Kingdom hearts to the system in the near future
Really hoping they give us Mario Maker for the switch soon, that was an incredible game
