The Switch has been out for roughly 8 months as of this article. It's been selling at or above expectations each month. Software attach rates are incredibly high. In general, people seem quite enthusiastic about the system. I picked one up at launch hoping Zelda would tide me over while I waited patiently for much of the future software that has been promised. Zelda didn't strike me like I'd hoped it would. Arms and Splatoon 2 are for a different audience than myself, and while I had a bit of fun playing both with my son, they are not games I've returned to or have ever been interested in playing by myself. As a day one Wii U owner, I've played a significant amount of Mario Kart 8 already, so the deluxe version isn't quite what I want to justify owning the system.

With games like Fire Emblem, Shin Megami Tensei V, Kirby, Dragon Quest and others looming in the distance, I've never been worried that I'll regret my purchase in the long run. But after 8 months, I really do long for something to play that gets me excited to own a Switch. With that in mind, I have very high hopes for Super Mario Odyssey and how it will make me feel to be a Switch owner.

First day of my challenge has officially started. To start things off right, I was able to beat all 3 Super Mario Bros games and had enough time left to defeat Dr. Wily once too! Just so that no one can call me a liar I decided to capture videos of each and every game I'm beating. I'll post screen shots of the ending screens on my blog here. The videos are really only for my own benefit, unless someone needs some additional proof of the game being finished.

I'm finding my playing is a lot sloppier when playing on the computer, as opposed to on a TV. The response feels pretty good (although there were a couple times when the video lagged for a few seconds and caused me to run down a pit or into an enemy) so it must just be a mental block or something. Hopefully I'll get used to it, because I should have had enough time for at least one more game in this sitting. I'm also finding that some things are not always showing up on the computer monitor. For example, ducking down in SMB 2 you normally flash after a while, the characters didnt flash and I just had to guess when they were charged for a super jump. Also Dr. Wily and a couple other bosses were even harder than normal because only some of their bullets were clearly visable and would often "blink" on and off the screen.

These arnt huge issues when playing games I'm familiar with, but when I get to uncharted territory its going to make things very difficult. Does this have something to do with the monitor being an LCD screen? Is there something I can do to remedy this issue?

Anyway here are tonights screen shots and tomorrow I'm looking forward to A LOT more Mega Man!!
