    First off, that was posted early in the morning when I had just dealt with a copyright strike on my channel for a review, so not all of my pieces were together on the Switch.

    However, I still am far more excited for this than I am for the Switch because this showed me areas I want to explore. A new 3D Mario game is nothing new or original. There will always be a new Mario. Hell, there have been several new Mario games in the last 6 years. There hasn't been a new Red Dead in 6 years.

    But the Switch video isn't about Mario, it's about what the switch is. It's fine to be more hype over a game you want to play more, but the sheer bitterness is just something we're all a bit perplexed by.

    Like, honestly all that switch video had to do was throw in a split second of Metroid and you'd be all over it.

    Yeah, so? I am far more interested in RDR2 than I am in buying another Nintendo console. I bought the Wii U 3 years ago and it is already obsolete. Hell, Nintendo pretty much abandoned it last year, so the only bothered to do something with it for the first two years I had it.

    Not necessarily. I would be interested in the Metroid game, but not the Switch itself. A Metroid game would be the first step in the right direction, but how can I trust Nintendo to actually commit to this thing if it doesn't succeed in its first year?

    I don't even know what to say. Either you're ignoring the point of the video or just trying to wind me up.

    just don't buy the thing and stick with Red Dead? Have fun.

    I'm sorry, what point were you making?

    I am far more excited for RDR2 because what was shown looked beautiful and I want to explore those areas now.

    The point I was making is the switch video isn't about what games are coming out for it, it's about how the console works and what it can do.

    Very clearly, this is my point.

    I'm then venting my frustration to you, because after explaining very simply what the trailer is, you reply with a "yeah so?". Like I'm fucking sorry for trying to explain why everyones a bit confused over your comparison to a piece of hardware and software.

    I'm then making an observation that you perhaps shouldn't buy the Switch and just stick to your PS4 and play red read 2 when it comes out.

    Okay, so why should I be blown away by the Switch trailer? What did the Switch show me that hasn't been done before?

    As for the other thing, you do know you can earn more than one game console at a time, right? If the Switch is worth it, I will buy it, enjoy it, AND enjoy RDR2 on the PS4.

    I'm not telling you you should be blown away by the switch. I'm not even questioning why you don't seem to be into it. I'm confused why you're so angry about it I suppose?

    And yes I do know, I'm not telling you to never buy the bloody thing, I'm saying just wait for red dead 2 and enjoy yourself.

    Sorry, I think I totally misread what your meant.

    I was initially angry because I was stressed as I was dealing with a copyright strike at the same time, so I wasn't fully thinking straight.

    I'm fine with the delay. Rockstar will use the extra time well, and it also gives more time for other games this year

    Was anyone really surprised at it being delayed?

    I just hope they release a remastered version of the first game to hold us over.

    Done. But in the future, if someone would contact a mod, or request a name-change in the Tech Support forum, it would've happened sooner.

    Sorry for the slugish nature of (lack of) reporting on my part @ABH1979
