Am I Getting Old ?
It’s time to admit that I think I’m getting old. That is, I’m getting old in gaming years. It’s not a secret that I love my Switch. It fits my lifestyle perfectly. Having a full work schedule, and a busy family with three kids, being able to play all my favourite games on the go is a Godsend. Let me paint a picture for you. There I am, 30 minutes into playing Mario Kart 8 deluxe and it hits me: the dreaded hand numbness. I try and struggle through it, but in the end, I succumb to it’s effects and put down the Switch. If only there were something I could use to prevent this from happening, so I could enjoy longer gaming sessions.
One Tweet Changes the Game
One day, while surfing through my twitter feed, I came across a tweet from Jools Watsham. He was tweeting about an awesome case for Nintendo Switch called the Orzly Grip Case. After a quick search on Amazon, I decided I needed this Switch grip case. I was confident in this case because I have bought products from Orzly in the past. They made my tempered glass screen protector. Fast forward three weeks. Yes, that’s how long it took to arrive from London, England. Come on, Amazon!
What’s in the Box?
I was immediately satisfied pulling the case out of the package. It was a quality single piece of plastic that simply fit onto the case. It was easy to bend and flex, making it easy to put on the Switch. After putting the case on my Switch, I was blown away by how natural the case made the Switch fit in my hands. In addition, the Orzly Grip Case makes the Switch feel solid. Before, the joycon controllers would bend too much in handheld mode. That feeling doesn’t happen anymore thanks to the Orzly Grip Case.
This case fits very snug on the Switch but, it is also very easy to put on and take off. Doing so, the case doesn’t lose its fit, like other cases. The case allows for easy access to the volume buttons, cart slot, headphone jack, charging port, the fan vents are completely open, and you can use the kickstand with the case on. I feel like the case makes the Switch more sturdy when using the kickstand in tabletop mode. I have been using this case for the past three weeks and have had no issues with it. My only problem with this case is that I wish it could be left on when the Switch is docked.
Get a Grip… The Orzly Grip Case!
In the end, the only thing I can say is that, if you have a Switch and like to play in handheld mode, especially at the amazing price point of $17.49 CND ($13.88 USD). The Orzly Grip Case is a must have. You can buy it here on Amazon!
