Basically, with the Nintendo stuff you can be sure it is made to spec, and USB-C is really exacting as it does funny stuff with the charges, meaning if it is slightly wrong it will zap your electronics. Lots of stories of third party chargers and docks frying peoples Switches as they thought they'd be cheap and cost-cut.
Labo is quite expensive, but it looks like it has a quite interesting programming function too! I'd go for the multipack one over the robot, which is a bit one-note. I think you can buy more cardboard in case it gets broken.
Really enjoying the Megaman Legacy Collection 1 on the Switch. It has Megaman 1-6 for £12 and includes an instant rewind function so you can reverse and go back when you mess up. Changes it from an impossible and frustrating game into a lot of fun
I have completely ignored the existence of the Switch, from rumoured existence, right up until this last weekend. The Wii was just a gimmick, and I thought Switch would just be a DS on steroids.
But this weekend I discovered Mark of the Ninja was being released on it. That game is easily one of my favourite games of all time, so the ability to play it on a desert island got my attention.
(I have checked out the literal desert island potential of all my favourite games, and sadly even PS2 era games still can't really run on portable consoles. Yet. Ironically, Mark of the Ninja can- but I would have to hack a tablet, and download the game illegally).
Anyway, back to the Switch- oh my god! It is a retro-style/indie game paradise! Santa is getting me one for Xmas now.
It's a tempered glass screen protector - means it is strong and flexible and will help protect it against pretty much anything. As it is tempered glass it is really easy to put on as well and won't bubble. (To all intents and purposes is feels like plastic but it's just stronger)
HOWEVER they do say that you should wait a day before turning on the switch after applying the screen protector, or the heat from the screen might make the adhesive go a bit funny.
Case If you're taking it anywhere you'll need a case. Of course do you want to encourage taking it anywhere?
Games The big killer apps are Zelda or Mario. Both are very similar open world games, I'd probably suggest Mario as the better choice for you, as it's a bit more 'pick up and play and mess about', Zelda's more involved. Argos is good for rivalling Amazon in game price. Big games - Zelda Breath of the Wild Super Mario Odyssey Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee Super Smash Bros
