At least it wasn't stolen? In the states, you would have to specifically get signed/verified delivery (i.e. face-to-face, make sure you're actually home) for them to bother with that, otherwise they just drop it on your front porch or whatever and you hope somebody doesn't take it, particularly if you have no idea if something was delivered and you only check hours later. Usually you only get that service for extra money or on high value items.

What the... but yeah, at least it wasn't just dropped in front of the door, although with my neighbors here being who they are, I'd have my controller now. :p

Delivery guys and gals generally just put the package in front of my door. Luckily, none of my neighbors are thieves so it's never been an issue. Back when I drove over the road I had packages sit in front of my door for several days and no one stole them.

Yeah, I've been lucky to have avoided porch pirates so far despite dozens, probably hundreds of deliveries having been left at the front door - all day on occasion. Not that it didn't make me nervous, particularly when a couple of times it was for parts worth several hundred dollars.

Probably even less risk now though as I have a new neighbour, an old retired guy, who spends all day tinkering in his garage with direct line of sight to my door.

Leaked specs for the Switch 2, or whatever it is going to be called, look really interesting. Might turn out to be a handheld with PS5 level of performance.

If it's downward compatible with my old Switch games I might even pre-order. :)

They better call it the Super Nintendo Switch (SNS).

How I have existed fills me with horror. For I have failed in everything - spelling, arithmetic, riding, tennis, golf; dancing, singing, acting; wife, mistress, whore, friend. Even cooking. And I do not excuse myself with the usual escape of 'not trying'. I tried with all my heart.

In my dreams, I am not crippled. In my dreams, I dance.

I propose they go the Teen Wolf route and call it Switch Too.

I'll probably cave and buy it eventually because Nintendo always has a handful of truly great exclusives, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

"Switch Too" sounds like an alarmingly similar innovation to "Wii U"...kiiind of thinking they're not going to tempt fate with that one. At least the Super Nintendo was successful, though it was obviously forever ago and marketing has hugely changed since then.

While I think Super Nintendo Switch is the best name and something that'd bank on the popularity of the Switch and nostalgia, I think Nintendo doing something very left field like Switchcube would be pretty funny.

I'm pretty sure that's the sequel to Trap Shrine.
