Something you need to know about Digitiser2000 is that I try hard to be a realist on here, isolated from hype or prevailing trends. I try to say it as I see it - from a dispassionate, unemotional place - and if I sometimes don't pull any punches, such as when - say - the Nintendo Switch launches with just one Triple-A game, then that's just me giving you what I think Digi exists for.
I mean, it's sort of the USP of Digi, and always was. "We hate everyone equally" was the Digitiser mantra, and part of that is because it's easier to be funny when you're laying into something. Plus, people enjoy it. It's the car crash mentality, which makes things such as this go viral.
But the truth is... I don't hate everything equally, and never have. I really have been lying to you and to myself all these years. In fact, Nintendo... Nintendo I don't hate at all. Like, even a teeny, tiny, bit.
Oh, I might get frustrated with them, in the same way you can with anybody you love, but Nintendo is mine. Like so many other gamers of my generation, I've got an almost absurd affection for the company, its games, and its technology. I has a place in my heart where Sony, Microsoft, Sega, and all the rest don't even get a look in.
Much as I've tried to stay true to the Digitiser ethos with the Switch, and its undoubtedly rubbish launch line-up, the real me has - increasingly - gained strength. Consequently, I'm now so excited about the Switch that the other night I even had a dream about unboxing one (although, I'd forgotten to buy any games - read into that what thou will...).
