I finally got my hands on a Switch and the new Zelda
title is outstanding. I haven't played too far into it
yet, but the open world aspect is long overdue - it just
feels SO natural!

 I haven't played it myself. I've watched my son play the game. I liked it very much.  He has beaten the game twice. I thought it interesting that depending on how you play the game the end battle can be different. 

My son on his second go through decided to not increase the number of hearts beyond three.  He says that there are plans for DLC for the game. As far as I know this is the first time Nintendo has done that with the Legend of Zelda.

Yes, I saw that last night - looks like the DLC will be
available in August.

Recently finished Zelda myself, a quite astonishing piece of of software and I'm really enjoying the Switch in general.

90+ hours and I've finally finished HORIZON ZERO DAWN.  Gotta say that it's one of the most enjoyable video game experiences I've had in a while.  That's not to say other games haven't been fun, but this one did such a great job of world building, of voice casting, of open world, of fight mechanics and of setting up a mystery to be solved all in its inaugural title that it's fairly mind-blowing.  So glad there's a set up for the inevitable "next chapter" after the end credits. Also glad that it's the PS4 highest selling original game.

Can't recommend this one highly enough.

Jeffrey Combs is voicing Brainiac in Injustice 2, and it looks spectacular.

Popped in KINGDOM HEARTS the final edition.  Bought it because of nostalgia, but immediately remembered what was so incredibly frustrating about it.  Poor fight mechanics coupled with a bad camera and an incredible amount of button smashing.  Don't think I'll make it through another play through (I actually did finish both 1 & 2 years ago).  We'll see, but MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA is now calling to me harder and harder.

Despite the bugs, and even after the big patch there are still a whole lotta bugs, I really enjoyed Andromeda.  If you've gotten used to playing Bethesda games, you'll find the bugs par for the course.

I've played a lot of Bethesda.  You're right.  Buggy.  But I'll be damned if the first ME trilogy isn't one of my favorite games, bugs and all.
