BEST Nintendo Switch Travel Bag? | CommuterPak by Funk St. EDC Review

You can wear it as a sling bag, wear it as a satchel or wear it around the waist…it’s the handy, dandy CommuterPak from Funk St. Outfitters! It weighs less than one pound and is the perfect compananion for the Nintendo Switch!


Now I know you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Ray, why are you sharing a bag with us!?”. Well guys, this bag is a little different then others that are out there on the market.


The CommuterPak here is a fantastic multipurpose tech bag, that is not only perfect for carrying around the Switch but also other gadgets like iPads and tablets. Believe it or not, you can fit a whole lot of stuff in this little bag. Like since my camera (Sony a6500) is pretty thin, I can easily fit that along with my Switch and controller grip in the bag with no issue. There's a lot of different scenarios where you can take advantage of this bag whether it's for tech stuff or hiking or traveling. It's really a great all rounder!

What I really like about this bag the most though is how minimalistic it is. Rather then paying for a name brand label, the crew at Funk St. decided to put all of their time and effort into making this a premium product at a low price point compared to the competition and it definitely shows in the CommuterPak.

The outside of the bag features a sleek black design made of a very smooth nylon honeycomb ripstop, a magnetic buckle to close it up and just overall has that aesthetic, stealthy vibe to it. From using this bag over the past few days in my daily routine, I can easily say that you’re going to have to do something drastic to do some damage to it. This little guy is tough. 


On the inside of the pack, there’s a bunch of compartments to store essentials including a padded microfiber sleeve. Here you can safely store your Switch, iPad or tablet. I have a 10.5 inch iPad Pro and it fits like a glove in here - anything bigger like the 12.9 inch iPad Pro will definitely be too big. But there’s also some other pockets in there as well where you can fit other daily essentials. 

My top favorite feature hands down about this bag is the automatic magnetic lock on the front. It’s incredibly easy to just pull it off, open the bag and snap it back together. It’s certainly no slouch either because you can really feel how strong this thing is when it clicks together…goodness.

Although the CommuterPak isn’t exactly branded specifically as a Switch bag…it is heavily featured in it’s promos. The bag is absolutely perfect for storing the system and bunch of its accessories like the controller grip, extra Joy-Con and accessories like that. As mentioned before, this pack is very minimalistic and simple, which is something I am really drawn to in products. The design of this thing is really good, it’s really well made and not to mention you get a lifetime warranty with it…you can’t go wrong with that!


The CommuterPak is going to retail for $90 when it releases but right now, you’re able to get it for just about $60 by backing it on Kickstarter with free shipping! Compared to other bags in this category, this one is super affordable! The bag already reached it’s funding goal three times over in less than a week…and it’s only going to go up from here. How crazy is that!! If you back the project through the link in my description, not only will you guarantee yourself a bag when it starts shipping but you’ll also be supporting my channel in the process. It's a total win!

Overall, not a lot of people have money for just a Switch bag or just a tablet bag. The CommuterPak simplifies having to buy separate things for each gadget. If you’re looking for a great multi-purpose bag that will let you carry your Switch and a bunch of other things inside of it - you’ve found the perfect one. It's small, lightweight and comfortable to wear, plus you get a lifetime warranty in the event anything goes wrong. You definitely cannot go wrong with that.

Bayonetta 1 and 2 Review (Nintendo Switch)

Hey guys! It’s Ray back here and welcome to another blog post! Thanks to Nintendo, today I have an awesome opportunity to share with you guys both Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Switch! How exciting is this!?

Now if you’ve never played any of the Bayonetta games before. Boy are you in for a treat. These games are action-packed from start to finish…I’m not even joking from the second you launch the games you’ll see what I am talking about. One of the best things about the Switch version of the games is that if you’re trying to decide between getting Bayonetta 1 or Bayonetta 2, both games come together for $60 so effectively you’re getting Bayonetta 1 for $10 since 2 is $50 or each for $30 - no matter how you look at it, it’s a solid deal. Especially when you consider you’re basically getting double the Bayonetta sassiness - can’t go wrong with that!

If you’re only are going to only play one of the two though, hands down Bayonetta 2 is a much better experience of the two. The first does have it’s tech issues with camera movement and stuff like that but with the second all of those issues have been ironed out. The graphics are absolutely gorgeous, the gameplay is much smoother and it also has a much easier learning curve. I’m not taking anything away from the first, I’m just stating the obvious that the second is easily better then the first so we’ll talk about that one for a bit.

So obviously in these games you take control of the main character, Bayonetta, who is a strong and empowered shape shifting witch. In the cut scenes she is hella sassy and on the battlefield she is a force to be reckoned with. If you’ve ever played Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden games, the combat style in both Bayonetta games are very similar. The battles are fast and furious with combos flying everywhere and added mechanics like Witch Time and Torture Attacks make for some really intense and fluid action. The combat system is truly amazing.

However, the action doesn’t just stop at the battles. It very translates over to the moments in between when you’re adventuring through the story mode. It’s not uncommon to have a city start crumbling leading up to a battle or a gigantic wave form to try to sweep you away. To speed things up and avoid these obstacles quickest, you can also transform into a panther to get around faster…Black Panther anyone? There’s no denying the fact that Bayonetta is a weird series full of ridiculous creatures and moments that will surely make you go what the f****.

One second you’re fighting half man, half horse Accolades, the next the mighty Gomorrah, the next the gigantic Glamor. The battles are not easy either. I can confidently say that I died a few times at the ends of the Gomorrah and Glamor the first time I faced them. There is never a dull moment in this game because once you think you’ve just got done with a battle, another one is only a few steps away. 

That's what I love the most about Bayonetta games. They are literally cinematic masterpieces that feel like playable movies. They are more than just games, they are experiences.

Overall, if you’ve ever played the original Bayonetta’s obviously, you’re going to love them here on the Switch. In fact, these games feel right at home on the Switch. Having the ability to play anytime, anywhere is really great and whether you play handheld or docked…the games simply look stunning. If you’ve never played any of the previous Bayonetta games, the Switch versions are the perfect place to start. I may even go as far to say that these are must-have titles for the Switch.

Dragon Quest Builders Review (Nintendo Switch)

Hey guys! Today, we’re going to be reviewing Dragon Quest Builders for the Nintendo Switch! If you guys saw my gameplay video that I made a few days ago, you know that I have been absolutely hooked to it. If you’re on my Switch friends list, chances are you’ll probably see me playing it!

So why is Dragon Quest Builders so addicting? Isn’t it just a Minecraft clone? Not quite…and that’s what makes it so engaging. Think of this game as kind of like a combination of Minecraft meets Dragon Quest with a little bit of Zelda mixed in. It is the literally all three of these ingredients mixed up together to create a game that feels very original and unique.


What makes Builders special is not only the fact that this is a creative building game, but there is also a storyline for you to follow where you complete quests. The story is simple. The realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness by the evil Dragonlord and you play the role of the legendary builder chosen by the Goddess to rebuild Alefgard and overthrow the Dragonlord. Sounds easy right? Well…I’ll let you be the judge of that because some of the monster battles are incredibly difficult. Don’t forget, you’re a builder first and foremost so these battles will require some strategy and technique.


Along the way of completing the story, you also have full creative freedom of building your kingdom back up and this is where the Minecraft influence comes into play. Throughout your adventure of exploring the vast worlds, you’ll be mining resources to help you do that. This means creating weapons, building rooms, making fires, cooking food and so on. Builders is a very time consuming game. Your weapons break, you get hungry and need to eat, and most notably - you’re building a kingdom from scratch! That’s no small task!

Through it all though, this is what makes Dragon Quest Builders a real challenge.


Once you beat the campaign mode, there is plenty of replay value to go about in the Terra Incognita mode, which is kind of similar to Minecraft’s creative mode. This basically lets you build whatever you want without the hassle of dealing with storyline quests. So in other words, if you can think it…you can make it!

What I love the most about this game and what truly has me hooked on it is how well the Dragon Quest RPG and Minecraft-style building system works. The graphics are colorful and vibrant, the music is great, the story is well-paced and the creative freedom you have is second to none. The one thing I do wish this game had though was multiplayer. Seriously, having an online server similar to Minecraft would just add so much more dynamic to it. It’s encouraging to hear that it’s come in Dragon Quest Builders 2 but it’s one that should have been included from the start.


Overall, if you like RPG’s or building games like Minecraft, this is a game you shouldn’t overlook! Dragon Quest Builders is such an underrated game that truly deserves all of the high ratings that it has been getting - I mean, there really aren’t that many games out there that have had me as hooked as this one. Not only is following the story and completing quests addicting but getting creative and building up your kingdom takes it to a whole other level. If you’ve ever played Minecraft, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Playing all of that Runescape when I was younger definitely prepped me for this so be warned, if you get this game, be prepared to spend a whole lot of time building up your kingdom!
