Nintendo Switch Unboxing

The Nintendo Switch is finally here!  After months of hype and teases, the newest home console has hit the market.  I wasn’t able to get my hands on a pre-order but my friend Ryan from Blueshirts Breakaway was.  He was kind enough to record an unboxing video of the console, pro controller, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Without any further delay, let’s dig into Nintendo’s newest console and see what your purchase gets you.

Xbox One Unboxing

After nearly two years and countless times saying that I would eventually do it, I’m finally the proud owner of an Xbox One.  I knew the slate of games would overpower me and, thanks to Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and the recent announcement of backwards compatibility, that time has come.  I’ve owned a PS4 since launch and played my Xbox 360 like a crazy person, so I’ll be comparing the Xbox One to both of those.

Without further adieu, here we go!

Oh, Marcus.  How I've missed you.
