Zelda is £48 at Amazon right now. Why would you pay £60 for it?

Zero Gunner 2 is out on the Switch today for £6.99. For those that don't know, it's an old arcade shoot em up that only ever saw a port on the Dreamcast in Japan. You control 1 of 3 helicopters and can fire in a full 360 degree motion.

It's great.

It's a fantastic game, but I saw reports of this port being pretty buggy.

Splatoon 2 is just more Splatoon but that is no bad thing. I really enjoyed it on the Wii U but the gamepad always put me off playing it for long stints.

Do we have enough people for some Bezzie action on the Switch yet?

What games? I only have Mario, Splatoon and Rabbids.

Don't forget to download the mobile app for voice chat.

Splatoon seems like it could be a good choice with enough people.

We could do:

4 Bezzies v 4 Bezzies private matches
4 Bezzies v 4 Randos public matches
4 Bezzies Salmon Run horde mode

Do we have two consoles, two copies of Splatoon and Mario Kart and four pairs of joy cons between us? Seems like playing 8 player local network games at the cottage is a must this year!

We even have two TVs in the main cottage now so wouldn't have to crowd round an 8-inch screen.

Forget Splatoon. You can only play one player per console so we'd need 8 Switches. :/

I think there were 3 Switches at the Cottage last year so let's not rule it out... We're almost there!

Mario Kart would be incredibly doable though. One console docked on each TV, two copies of the game, two pairs of joy cons each - et voila! 8-player Bezzie Kart.

Cloud-based save game backups I hope! Although in all fairness this should have been implemented from the get-go.

So many people are losing their save games when the Switch develops a fault, the latest victim is Brian Altano of IGN who lost a huge amount of save game progress when his was sent in for repair -

I would only recommend this if you'd get a lot of use out of handheld mode. Most of them are available on PC for cheaper.
