An update on the fact that I am a sheep.
About an hour or so after typing this post, I convinced myself to NOT buy Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and went home with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, after buying it of course.
I hate myself.

Well, on the other hand...the Wii U didn't do so well, and a lot of people may not have had the chance to play those titles on the original console.

That's the highest postcount based rank. I think we need to make more.

I think the Switch is an awesome Gaming Console and a good move on Nintendo to get themselves out of the poophole they accidentally dug themselves into. I hate hate hate how now, they are re-releasing every good Wii U game onto the Switch, but adding more, awesome, and exclusive Switch content. I feel like this is a giant Middle Finger to all of the loyal Nintendo gamers who got the games on the Wii U. I swear, almost every game that I own & enjoyed on my Wii U is either already been re-released, or has been announced to be re-released on the Switch.

Mario Kart 8, has exclusive new tracks for Battle Mode, new characters to play, new modes to play, and all of the DLC is already there (I paid full price for the original game, AND paid for the DLC, and there is still more to get on the re-release, which is full price, again).

Pokkén Tournament, has new fighters, and there will be DLC for even MORE of them (I paid full price, luckily there was no DLC released).

They will re-release Hyrule Warriors. The new version has all of the DLC pre-installed, and all of the content from the 3DS will be on it as well. (I paid full price for the original, AND paid for the DLC, [but refused to get Legends for the 3DS], and there is more here, and it will be full price).

They will re-release DKC: Tropical Freeze, which will include an exclusive mode where you play as Funky Kong (This one, I'm not AS upset about yet, as he seems to just be an easy mode [it looks like a crazy cool & fun easy mode, but I can live without that])

Now, I guess that's only 4 games, but I don't care. These were good games. And besides Pokkén, I put a lot of hours into those games, and a lot of money. And, besides DKC:TF, I am tempted to pay full price for them again! Which sucks......

I get why the Tumblrinas love it, and I also get the hate.

There are a couple very good Choices Matter™ ethical dilemmas in the game.
The red herring is pulled off well.
Polarized (episode 5) is a mental clusterintercourse  rivaling that of Lost or Fringe.
If you are interested in psychiatric disorders, they're pretty much all on display in this game, and most of them are pulled off competently.
Despite being Tumblrbait, limited amounts of SocJus (at least in the basic season; can't speak to the prequel.) The only thing it really likes to preach about is bullying.
S/S relationships which are present but are not made a big deal about.

Indietrash music is intercourse ing horrid.
Chloe comes across as a writer's pet.
It's a walking simulator.

Personal recommendation: Rent or check out from library.
I agree with a lot of what you said.
With the S/S thing, I thought it was interesting.
When I first played, I saw everything they did as very friendship oriented. Nothing seemed to imply they could be into each other. Even the kiss in an early episode. I mean, it just seems like something Chloe would say, and something a good friend like Max would do with that level of friendship. So when I ended up hearing about there being an ending involving a romantic kiss, I was like, "wait, is this an edited video or something?" But it was for real. On a second playthrough, I did everything that would make them do it, just to get it for myself (completionist, not perversion). I personally saw something more with Max and Warren, which I got a Kiss from him in my first playthrough.
On the Prequel, they have a much larger focus if you choose to go that route. Episode 1, one of the last big decisions you can choose, is Rachel your "Friend" or "Something More"? (which, like in the original, I didn't see anything beforehand as "romantic".) I ended up choosing "Something More" which was good, because it apparently matched my actions from earlier (Rachel will respond well or weird to saying one or the other, depending on how you behaved throughout the first episode, which I tested through "collector mode"). On a second playthrough, it actually felt weird to NOT choose "Something More" because so much seems like something she would do for someone special. And in Episode 2 (Total of 3), you can actually go for a Kiss if you chose "Something More", and, like I said, it was weird to not have that option. I mean, everything they do is something 2 female friends can do, but it seemed more complete making it a couple's thing.
It's kind of funny. I think they WANTED it to be more clear of an option in this game, as one of the first things shown in her room is a Rainbow Middle Finger in her room, and if you read Chloe's "Diary", one of the entries pre-written before anything happens in the game is, "I was rubbing one out to xDude (Famous Movie Character), and then thought of xFemale from (other Famous Movie) and finished. I dunno, probably nothing" and later you even OBTAIN a copy of the Movie xFemale is in. Also, there's another female character that is into Rachel.
Although it isn't made into a huge deal, it is definitely more obvious in Before the Storm. I like how they make it very normal, and technically optional in case a Homophobe plays the game.
In both the original and the prequel, you are a Female with a potential Male love interest, AND a potential Female love interest.
If it were a perfect fictional world, I would totally Ship Chloe&Rachel, then Max&Warren.

what are you telling me they listen to tegan and sara

of course they listen to teagan and sara
they're lesbians

More seriously, Chloe (blue-haired chick) listens to punk rock; the indietrash music is just used as ambient soundtrack like it would be in a chick flick movie.
