Rime’s Switch price tag is a giant middle finger

Late last week, the final details about upcoming indie adventure game Rime were revealed. The Tequila Works’ title has soldiered through a troubled development cycle that saw it dropped as a PS4 exclusive to release on PC/PS4/Xbox One on May 26 and on Nintendo Switch at a later date. This is great news for those who have been intrigued by the game since its gorgeous reveal trailer at PlayStation’s Gamescom press conference in 2013. The game was revealed to cost $30 on all platforms, with one exception. While we don’t know when Rime will see its Switch release, we do know that it will cost $40. For those who struggle with math, that is $10 more expensive than the game’s incarnations on other platforms.

What the f*** is that about?

Does Nintendo Switch seem rushed? Blame Breath of the Wild

Impressions of the Nintendo Switch are flooding the internet. While the hardware itself has garnered positive reviews, the thought that it is launching bereft of features has become pervasive. Entertainment apps, a web browser, a robust online experience and a strong launch lineup are but a few of the items missing from the Switch’s March 3rd menu. Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier summed up these feelings in a recent tweet, saying “Switch right now in a word: undercooked.” Many devout followers of the industry are wondering why Nintendo would release a seemingly unfinished console for what amounts to an early-adopter beta test. With the system’s heavy hitters not landing until later this year along with the full version of a new online system, why didn’t Nintendo wait until November and launch with a stacked lineup and a full sampling of features? The answer to this question is simple; The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Inside the mind of a Switch early adopter

The Nintendo Switch is less than two weeks away from launch, and the flexible new machine has been a divisive topic of discussion that has dominated the community. While many, myself included, are incredibly excited for March 3rd, there is a massive contingent of gamers that do not agree, and are not afraid to share their opinions. In fact, given what we know, or rather, what we do not, many could not possibly understand why anyone would be excited about the Switch. The future early-adopters and I have been called morons, fanboys, Nintendorks, Nintentards and a number of other clever names and Nintendo puns. Despite these assaults on our intelligence, there is a passionate community who couldn’t be more thrilled for the console.
