    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

Early look at UI and system settings on Switch.

NeoGAF user hiphoptherobot, who says an “unnamed store” decided to ship him an early Switch unit, posted this video: [MEDIA=vidme]height=480;id=oQkO;width=854[/MEDIA]

 

I like it. UI looks sleek and stylish, navigation is smooth and even the big bezel looks "ok".

it looks really nice, and simplistic, but also useful

Indeed, i like the simple, yet stylish design.

So the dark theme wasn't just a Devkit thing after all! Muaha.

i love the black coloured background

Same. I also like, that we can have themes right away (via eshop, i think/hope). I'm sure Zelda theme will be there on day one and it look awesome.

I have really mixed feelings about this, because I feel like it ruined an element of surprise but at the same time it just made me 100x more excited for release date :emoji_grimacing:

I kind of feel the same way. However, every time I buy new electronics that I have to set up, I run into problems. I want that first day to run as smoothly as possible. Consequently, I will gladly give up some of the element of surprise to learn more about what to expect and how to deal with the process.

 

 

Seriously, I am cursed when it comes to electronics.

Here is a clip about user avatars/icons, color schemes and MII creation: [MEDIA=vidme]height=360;id=lXIP;width=640[/MEDIA]

I like that my Nintendo Radar avatar is there waiting for me on the Switch. On the other hand, that sword and shield one looks quite nice.

Lol, in fact, when i saw this, i was thinking, "Wait a minute, i have seen this avatar somewhere, oh right, it was a user icon on the NR forum" :) I wonder, can we upload our own avatars to use on Switch, or we must use only the stock ones.

I don't mind it ruining the element of surprise, because I am not buying it for the UI

Knowing Nintendo, I would say we are limited to the stock ones. However, they keep surprising me with the Switch, so we shall see.

I just rewatched the video, and I guess you will choose between a "character" or a Mii for your avatar. That is a shame if true; I was hoping to use both in some capacity.

I have not watched the video so as not to spoil anything. But I really wonder if things like this were planned. Maybe Nintendo purposely had this one sent out to keep momentum with the excitement. It gives them some free advertising cause we are all talking about it. And it makes the whole console release more fun to get a steady stream of leaks.

Maybe they did do it on purpose, the only problem that I have is, why can't they have of sent it to me?!!!!

Hoping for more customization like the 3ds. Allowing badges to be placed on those 3ds themes was the best thing Nintendo has done.
