Thanks! I didn't even upgrade from my PS3 as I moved to iOS gaming... I'm glad I bought the Switch literally as I stated for BOTW. I'm now tempted by Splatoon 2, Mario rabid or whatever, and Mario. Our baby is expected around October 28th which I believe is near the launch of Mario so I see my gaming paddles being hung up for a while.... not that I'm complaining as we are so excited.

I'm debating if I should get Splatoon 2 or Mario rabida whatever it's called or be real and just play BOTW!

I'm also torn as I saw the Layton game come out on iOS and thought geez... maybe that on iOS and BOTW on the Switch and I'll be set! On top of the other 40 games sitting on my iPhone and iPad waiting to be played... hahaha.... likely it'll be a long time before I'll get to play them...

You can still game some with a baby. I had a rocking chair glider when my daughters were babies and I would sit there and hold them while they slept and play PS2 games. Now toddlers are a different story. Sometimes I could get by with giving them an unplugged controller so they could pretend they were playing but that didn't always work. More often than not I was chasing them around the house making sure they didn't injure themselves.
