  1. Hmmm, not seeing “Wishlist” buttons in e-Shop.

  2. I love my Switch. It’s really amazing how large it’s library is becoming. I have gamed since I got an NES in 1988. Honestly, the Switch is probably my favorite console ever.

    • It’s amazing how this took off. I thought it would conflict with the 3DS but it’s awesome and fits that niche well.
