I don't go on enough flights to justify the new switch imo

Love this game as it was the first one that I got when I bought my Xbox One X during Black Friday last year. Do you have all the DLC? I'm not sure how many hours I put in, but finished every single quest and achievement before I put it down.

The combat will get easier as you go on, especially when you get certain legendary items (always keep these and upgrade as you level up). Enjoy!

And yes, I know I'm a nerd for bringing it with us, but it's a driving trip, and it's a fun way to unwind on those days where we're just chilling at the hotel.
You need a Switch!

I'm thinking about getting a Switch. I have a PC and place some relatively light strategy games (I consider myself a Crusader Kings 2 master, but that's about all I play). I have fond memories of playing Smash Bros and Mario Kart, and like playing emulated NES/SNES games. I have two kids, so I like the idea of having something handheld so the wife and kids can watch what they want while I play.

1. Any general opinions on the Switch?
2. Should I wait for the Switch Lite? I <3 saving money...
3. Can anyone talk me into a PS/Xbox?
Thereís an updated version of the full switch coming out with a better battery life. I would wait for that, because I think itís coming in August?

There are other places you can play the switch.

Are there more than 2 tiers of weapons? I have found several purple ones, but not sure if that qualifies as legendary.

Double XP weekend in Rocket League if that's something you care about (on through the 22nd). I was playing last night and definitely increased a few levels and picked up some solid RocketPass items.

Current rankings:
3's - Silver 2, tier 1
2's - Silver 1, tier 3
1's - unranked

so, short answer... I still suck, but my car looks fly.

I let my xbox live subscription end. I've just been playing League of Legends on the rare occasion I have time to play anything. And I just play ARAM and I'm trash. But it's fun. I'm unlocking a fair number of champs, so I have variety.

One thing I like about PS4 is the video recording feature. Even for games that have blocked scenes, I can remote play them on my Macbook and record the gameplay using Quick Time there. Unfortunately Switch doesn't have this feature and it's pretty costly to get a decent capture card.
