A year ago the portable-only Nintendo Switch Light stole my heart with its fun colors, small design and delicious price tag. I adored it so much, why I wrote an animated paragraph The switch light is the gaming console I have been waiting for.
It was a few weeks after I discovered Nintendo’s small console on my daily commute. Now, with several months to work at home, my relationship with this adorable yellow device seems a little different. The lifestyle I once led is almost non-existent, and I find myself sitting in front of a TV with my family more often than I expected.
So yes, there are times when I wish I had the usual ‘Ol Nintendo Switch (undetectable in the spring), and the Switch Lite is not the faulty gadget I once considered. But it’s still an excellent entry level gaming device, and it should not be overlooked in conversations comparing consoles, they are complete these days.
I love and hate after using the Nintendo Switch Lite for a year.
Switchlight is still accessible (and affordable)
Some hardcore gamers may even consider the switch to be an innovative item or even a children’s device. But it has a purpose, a Nintendo must have it: being an accessible console for the mild mobile user.
Although I’m not mobile anymore, I still appreciate the Nintendo layout and the fact that I have a functional gaming device for just $ 199. Switchlight did not make me a complete gamer, but the Xbox Series X and PS5 were completely off my radar. I hope the next gen consoles will offer the best holiday gifts for many, but please pick up a Nintendo EShop gift card. Anyway, at least I didn’t go down without explaining myself first.
Nintendo Switch has the best games for nostalgia …
As an absorber for nostalgia, running modern versions of Pokemon and Super Mario Brothers and more is enough for me to feel like a kid again. Many of the Nintendo Switch games that I loved when I was younger were the DS. The switch light allows me to disappear for a few hours at a time for 2005, I definitely like 2020.
Sometimes, I get even more distracted in my childhood. Now I have my Crash Bandicoot. I work with Chan trilogy, which revisits the games I played on my dad ‘s PS2 before tragically breaking down. I somehow thought it would be better to destroy the boxes when I was 6 years old than I am now (I actually destroyed that box-shaped PlayStation), but from time to time it would be the escape I needed.
But I want more games to be available
In the timeless words of rapper Jarul, when I realized that not every game I wanted to play would come to the Nintendo Switch, I was in a hurry, cheated, bamboo, cheated, lost. Again, the new player is here. Although there are enough titles to satisfy me, for example, I am limited when it comes to some new releases like Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
I find the compatibility advantage of having multiple consoles, but as I explained it is not really an option for me, so I will learn to give this up. Besides, I have a habit of leaving games unfinished, so I shouldn’t complain about wanting more games when I don’t finish the games I already have.
Battery life is still a drag, but at least I’m always close to the charger
My biggest complaint with the switch light is its poor battery life. I was spoiled by Bluetooth earbuds, e-reader and iPhone, which will last at least a day worth of functions before the juice is needed. The switch light, on the other hand, gets less than 4 hours of play time. If my journey is slow one morning, I can see my switch light go out before I get home at night. As a mobile device, it should have excellent tolerance.
But, again, I’m not mobile anymore. I play my switch light almost exclusively on the bed, where a charger can never reach more than a hand (or hang on one side of the bed). In this sense, I would say that the best thing that could have happened to the switch light was infection.
Do I miss long trips? Not really. But I pulled out my switch light on the train and disappeared to Coholind Island for an hour or two. Fortunately, this year continues to provide excuses to escape reality – except now, I can do this from the comfort of my home instead of congested public transport.
