Thoughts on the Nintendo Switch

As a child of the 80's, I am such a fan of portable gaming systems and the Nintendo Switch is the most available. Once turned on, the menu layout is very intuitive and easy to understand. The kickstand is a super cool feature that I honestly wish was on my iPad as well. The battery life is fairly long when compared to other systems although I would bring a charger along if you take it with you in the car. I love how easily the Nintendo Switch goes from tv to handheld mode because it is virtually seamless.

While there aren't tons of games available for the Nintendo Switch, the games we did play have great graphics and hello…ZELDA. That's right, you can get The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for your Nintendo Switch. We also got the Mario + Rabbids® Kingdom Battle game. While his system won't replace our Xbox One but it is a solid companion to any gaming system and a great addition for our family.

Give the tech lover and gamers in your life the Nintendo Switch this holiday season.  Happy shopping!
