The Switch is beginning to serve a purpose as of late. And maybe it always did but I just needed the game to make that happen. Apparently I found it in Animal Crossing.
Iâ€™ve had downtime at work due to the whole world situation. I mean, not always downtime but easily more than I did before the pandemic and Iâ€™ve been bringing my Switch with me to work. As for Animal Crossing, itâ€™s been to basically do the daily maintenance on my island. That takes maybe 30 minutes or less to really worry with but itâ€™s also been to sell those stupid turnips to make a small fortune with the in-game currency.
However, recently, I just picked up Burnout Paradise for the Switch. I canâ€™t really count how many times I have bought this game in both regular and remastered form, but itâ€™s a lot. I even played a small bit of it during a break on this episode and I was hooked. Even for just two whole minutes of driving around the map, I was hooked. All over again.
The point is, Iâ€™m actually using the Switch for what most people use it for – on the go gaming. And Iâ€™m suddenly giving it more time now than any of the other consoles.
God help me if they ever put Destiny on this thing.
Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,546 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series).
