PAX South 2017: An Extended Hands-On With the Nintendo Switch

The most popular attraction at PAX South 2017, hands down"The Nintendo Switch. When a line starts to form during the media hour before the event is even open to the public, that's a sign that people are intrigued by the system. Thankfully, I got to take part in an in-depth hands-on session with the system, and try some of the unique features. First off, the system feels just a lot like using a tablet when you hold it, and probably even better than using something like the Gamevice with an iPad Mini. Nintendo wasn't yet ready to talk about anything using the touchscreen, unfortunately. However, the process of switching from handheld to docked modes on the TV is fast and works seamlessly. It just takes a few seconds to change modes when you put the system in the dock or take it out. If you're using multiple controllers, when you switch modes, you'll get a prompt to hit L+R on your controller of choice to start using that, so you could switch between playing with Joy-Con on the road and using the Pro Controller at home. There's just something quite cool about the fact that the big, expansive Zelda game on your TV is now on a handheld system.

It really feels like this is the potential gaming convergence that I've written about before. I love the idea of a system that isn't bound by any restrictions of where you can play games. Games that just use the touchscreen have real potential (and the Joy-Con could do some cool things with haptic-style feedback for like, tilt-based games). You'd have the games that would work for when you have quick moments, but also the bigger, more expansive experiences. The Switch has that potential if Nintendo sticks the landing. At worst, it's really interesting hardware and it's going to have a bunch of cool Nintendo games for it. But while we've seen some Android tablets try this idea before, and certainly iOS is capable of cross-platform experiences, this is the most serious attempt at convergence gaming yet. It works, and the capabilities for games are potentially infinite.
Now what about the games" 1-2-Switch seems poised to be the game that really shows off the unique aspects of the Switch. The HD Rumble is at its most impressive when you play the "Ball Count" game. The game has you twist and rotate the Joy-Con around like you're rolling balls around in a box, and it feels like rolling balls around in a box. HD Rumble is an impressive piece of technology. How it gets used for games remains to be seen. The other 1-2-Switch games I got to try were plenty entertaining. Have you ever milked a cow using a controller" Uh, that's what you can do in 1-2-Switch's "Milk" game. "Quick Draw" uses just sound and the sensors in the controller, along with the trigger to fire, to have you and your opponent compete to see who hits each other first. And it's accurate down to a thousandth of a second ? as I saw when I managed to win by that margin. "Samurai Training" shows just...
