    Speaking of the Wild Hunt, I recently finished replaying the first Witcher game and there, the Wild Hunt are represented as wraiths. You actually "fight" Eredin (who is never named) at one point and he's a legit wraith. The wild Hunt are only wraiths according to peasants, though, Witchers would be aware that they are actually Aen Elle.

    Kind of annoying. Not like they made the story up on the fly, either.
    I'm definitely not a fan of inconsistencies like that. Hmm... I wonder why they chose to present it that way in the first one.

    I wouldn't mind playing the first two at some point. I tried playing #2 on my PC, but it was too choppy and laggy. My PC is getting quite old now, so I'd have to upgrade before I could tackle them.

    Ciri is a pretty bad-ass character, no doubt. But, yeah, give me Geralt any day.

    Elon Musk has great taste in video games. Deus Ex 1 is top 10 forever for me.

    So the Nintendo Switch is coming out 3rd March. Headlines from Nintendo's live presentation:

    Zelda BotW is a day one release.

    3rd party games include FIFA and Skyrim.

    New Mario game is called Mario Odyssey - sounds a bit like Sonic Adventure with a pseudo open world.

    New sequels include Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

    New remasters include Mario Kart 8 and Street Fighter 2 (!).

    Controllers have a touchscreen.

    $399 Canadian.

    Not sure why Nintendo is putting out a new system already.
    The Wii U isn't that old, and the # of games that they put out was a severe disappointment. Going to be a long time before I consider another Nintendo console.

    The switch looks very gimmicky again, and it still looks like Nintedo is content with crappy graphics.

    But Zelda looks fucking amazing. Seriously looking forward to it. I'll likely just but it for my WiiU since it releases for both systems simultaneously.

    People need to let Nintendo consoles die so that we can enjoy Nintendo franchises on better systems.

    Nintendo's hardware is so quirky and niche that they're bound to continue to alienate big money developers who justifiably just want to make stuff with relative ease for the three other platforms. The Wii U has an unfortunately small library though and I'm admittedly pretty disappointed to see it get pushed out the door like this, but I understand why Nintendo need to cut their losses and move on. Their ability to make games is still up there though. If I had to pick my favourite 10 or so games from the last decade I'd bet three or four would be Wii U games.
