Switch Funday - Omega Strikers - 3 Wins From 7 Games For Team RubberRoss

Welcome to Switch Funday!

In yesterday's first look at Omega Strikers on Nintendo Switch,, the focus was more on checking it out and seeing what was on offer. For Switch Funday the goal was to play it. In less than an hour i managed to get 7 games in, and it could've been as much as 8 or 9 if i had tried. it's a great example of how quick the games are but also how quick it is to find a match.

many of the small complaints from yesterday carry over into today, things like a lack of a sense of speed, a lack of player character clarity, and a general feeling that the gear and awakenings add nothing to the experience. But i don't think they impact the game enough where it becomes not a fun experience. I've certainly had a worse time with bigger games, namely when i played Overwatch 2 on PS4 and Switch.

But a problem the game has it that it's on the Switch, a console that has perhaps the most popular online games of recent years. Omega Strikers is fun, but i can't honestly say it's more fun than Splatoon 3. i haven't tried out Fortnite on switch but i do know more people who play it there than on PlayStation. It will be interesting to see what the support is like for the game post launch and what it can do to grab attention. for example, i won't play it for this upcoming weekend's videos because of the Splatoon 3 Zelda Splatfest.
