    If EA won’t go all in for the Switch, then there is always hope that Sonic Forces will deliver, if it is as good or better than it is currently perceived. I personally think Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle has a lot of potential, but only time will tell. I am in love with the Switch so far, and I took it out of the dock to grind for Star Fragments in Breath of the Wild in my Bedroom on the main floor while my dad watched Gotham on the 720p (about 50″) Pioneer Plasma in the basement.

    I really want as many 3rd party games on the Switch because I don’t have to be tied to a TV to play AAA games. I’m really skeptical about EA right now despite the fact that I loved the Harry Potter games when they came out. Personally, I would not be surprised if From Software made a Dark Souls Collection and released it on all platforms, including the Switch. However, 3rd parties are looking at EA, Sega, and maybe Square Enix to determine if the Switch is worth their time and resources (which it obviously is, and has potential to get more power hardware iterations over time).
