Nintendo Switch Can Handle Being Dropped Many Times Before It Breaks

The Nintendo Switch packs a lot of possibilities in a relatively small package, but even after the system's seemingly successful launch, we still don't have a strong indication of whether or not it will be the success Nintendo is looking for. At present, you can only use one Joy-Con to play a game, rather than using two at the same time to act like a complete gamepad. Using them, you should be able to shield your new console from scrapes and scratches that might otherwise ruin your gaming experience.

If you pull down the right joystick and shine a light on the space just around the top of the joystick, you should see a message that says "Thx2 allgamefans", seemingly a hidden message from Nintendo's developers to people who buy the console.

There does not seem to be an equivalent note on the United States side of the Switch, which may mean that the policy isn't in effect here - or could just mean that Nintendo hasn't gotten around to updating its USA website.

President Trump's New Travel Ban Takes Iraq Off List
The revised executive order would put in place a stronger policy justification for restricting travel from certain countries. The American people did not take the ban well, coming out in droves to protest the order at airports across the nation.

According to dbrand, the coating on both the Nintendo Switch and the Joy-Cons begin to peel off after a few cosmetic skin applications.

There you go! Your Switch is now completely powered down. Games don't support it yet, but the Nintendo Switch software does. The Pro controller is apparently a fine piece of equipment, but the Joy-Con looks cramped and cumbersome, like a sawed-off one-quarter of a conventional controller.

The console is so portable that Nintendo Switch screen protectors are a necessity. The Nintendo 64 also followed up early the next year with Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye 007 later on in the summer, two more wildly popular, trend-setting games, even as the Nintendo 64 was eclipsed by the original PlayStation. Which is effectively what it is, really, and so while it's kind of interesting as a novelty, I have a hard time seeing it as something that PC gamers will forgo a regular controller for.
