Nintendo switch launch

IMG_0619We love games,game consoles we love playing family gaming nights. I only started playing after my son decided age 3 fm he wanted to game and has gamed ever since.

We pre ordered the new Nintendo switch as a surprise. We headed to game at midnight (yes we went and queued) he cryed with happiness when they handed him his switch. He waited 20!days to be able to play on it and to open it for his birthday.We currently only have Lego city, Zelda, but have pre ordered mario kart and splatoon 2.

While we like the switch my 7year old does not find it as easy to use on his own as the wii u or PS4. Wii u is still played with a lot more in our house due to being able to watch YouTube. He loves to watch and follow the walk through s of games.
