Switch is confirmed shit: the thread Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41729581[View All]

Over 135 games in development for it:
Probably mostly indie Early Access garbage Steam ports.

Zelda on Switch runs at 900p as opposed to Wii U 720.

Image is a comparison between PS4 and Switch versions of Dragon Quest Heroes. PS4 is the one on the top obviously.
You can clearly see textures look like dog shit on Switch, look worse than the GameCube in some parts. Lighting and particle effects is basically nonexistent.
Switch version runs only at 30FPS but it still drops.

IIRC he has his sister mail him shit from the US sometimes.
I don't think he wants a Switch at launch (not that he could buy one now anyway).

Now that I think about it though, if Mexican people can buy Switch's no problem then they should sell them to Americans to make a profit.

4:30 IGN guy claims that Zelda has performance issues when playing on the TV at 900p but ran fine on portable mode at 720p.

>season pass/day 1 DLC for Breath Of The Wild

>fucking Hard Mode is DLC

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41767592

So... is not only selling hard mode... but is day 1 dlc...

oh wait
it seem i read wrong.
Fair enough, sure it suck but at least isnt day 1... right?

Wait, it have day 1 dlc, just the lame dlc is day 1
This post was edited by its author on .

!Beemo/ZZYY 41767602

I guess it depends on what differences are in normal and hard mode. I mean, I assume they're not just going to make enemies have more health and/or just have more enemies.
Since, normally, the double damage and upping enemies is what we see.
So, I'm sure they're going to be actually changing things up with the difficulty shift, especially since it's such an open episode.

But, maybe it will be lazy. I guess we'll see.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41767605

the worst part really is just the day 1 DLC.
that stuff is probably in the game.
and one of the chest is a chest that give you helpful items....
They are going to charge you money to get potions, arrows and extra stuff?
That is level of Ubisoft and EA DLC....

And the new hard mode have to have really alot of different stuff in it to justify it. but maybe is just the master quest where they change stuff around the map and the enemies are harder.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41767612

They're already doing that! With amiibos. If you already own the amiibos, you get bonuses. So, it's like selling Arrows and hearts. Just, it also worked in Twilight Princess.

I could see that. But, it still looks like a pretty big game, so even a change where they make all the puzzles slightly harder would take quite some effort anyway.

Also, yeah, it's kinda dumb. I hope the "useful exclusive stuff" comes out later for free. And/or isn't very useful, you know, like... Twilight Princess's Magic Armor where if you run out of money, you become awful :P

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41767614

at least with amiibo you get a plastic crap that decorate shelves and should do something in other games.
here they are selling you a line of code tahts ay
"turn 3chest on"

!Beemo/ZZYY 41767616

Yep. It's pretty dumb.
But, they did the same with Hyrule Warriors, where you get a Dark Link costume. So, I'm hoping it's just... minorly useful things and just a costume. Since, that's what it sounds like it's going to be.

It SHOULD be that you know where it is, but can still find it. That could be a neat way to give players free things.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41768100

In their defense it does take extra development time to create content.
The free items are also just an extra ON TOP OF the actual content, they're not the main incentive and not the only offering.

In general though I think it's stupid for Nintendo having paid for DLC period. We're getting promised content in the summer for a single player game that comes out in March and is probably complete-able within a few weeks. I bought all the Mario Kart DLC and the Hyrule Warriors pass and I'm not sure why as I got bored with those games long before the DLC even came. I popped in MK to try a few courses but then went back to not caring.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41768114

In their attack, I think selling "extra help items" is kind of not good.
because if the game is balance around you having so many resources, they affect stuff by charging money.

Is like in Deus Ex, the game was balance fine to have your upgrades, but then they try to sell you extra materals as help. even if you dont need it... its horrible for a game.

If it was just the stupid costume and what ever that extra item is (but again, this may be helpful).

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41768117


yeah it's called pay 2 win

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41768118

If you think the game is balanced around having a certain amount of resources and buying the extra items in the DLC breaks the game, just don't buy the DLC. The game is single player, it's not like not having the extra items puts you at some disadvantage against other players. What you buy and what you use in a single player game is all your personal experience.

Only reason paid DLC can be bad IMO is if they remove content from the game then expect you to pay extra for it in DLC form later. No idea if that's the case for BotW yet though, so I'll just have to wait and see what people think of the game.

New Dragon Quest commercial.

funny thing, this is the kind of minigame that i could see existing on the era of the Kinect. (it even fail to do what the people is doing just like in the kinect)
It pretty much seem like a Dragon ball Kinect, but its nice that it knows is an experiment, and is just a minigame thing, instead of trying to sell it like "Street Fighter Switch"

It's funny that MS vastly improved the Kinect while it's evident that Nintendo didn't improve their motion controls.

File: 1487287333825.png (85.7 KB, 1538x865, fru_logo.png)

Did Microsoft Improved the Kinect?
There was really nothing showing that it was more precise....
I guess just the issue of people getting their dicks recorded.

I mean, Its kind of sad that we would never seeing a good kinect, It was the defenitive way to play Dancing games...
And it could have being good technology to mix with VR.

But Microsoft Mess up so big that im sure the damn thing is dead and not worth it for experimentation ever again.
There was this Kinect Game for the Xbone game.
and It look fun if you play with somebody else.

Sad for the developers, now that the Kinect is pretty much dead, They probably felt rip off.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41769719

2.0 is so much better.
The original could lose you occasionally but 2.0 was perfect assuming you didn't jump around and go too far or close to the camera.

Haha, Fru has a speed run achievement. Must be some serious acrobatics involved for the body player.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41769728

Well, the terrible PR at the start of the Xbox ruin any chance of the Kinect doing anything better

My crazy Kinect dream was that there could have being some kind of on rail shooter where you interact with stuff with your body. This mostly comming from the memories of an arcade, I think is this one

where you could dodge and interact with the enviroment with your body and movements.

But that isnt going to happen, specially because it seem the target now is VR.

I prefer owning my games physically anyways. Still though, only 20 something gigs? Were they high?

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41770663


owning physically is fine but these days I think more and more people are starting to feel that digital is more convenient overall, for good reasons. no driving to the store, no worrying about broken or lost discs/cartridges, that's what makes it for me.

I love displaying all the games and films that I own and you don't need internet to download them. Just plop em into the system and you're good to go.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41770677


yeah but is downloading really that hard? I mean don't get me wrong it sucks when you're like "hm I want to play this game again but it'll take hours to re-install" but I think it's a small price to pay.

I like organizing physical media (CDs, vinyl records, manga, DVDs etc.) in certain ways but not really for display, more just in ways that I personally like them. like for example, one time as a gift my brother turned a big speaker into a case for CDs and I have it filled but it's in my room with the cover closed...I honestly try to avoid showing IRL people my stuff because I don't want to talk a lot about it unless it was my idea to show them.

but I get that some people really like showing off their collections, if mine were better maybe I would.

Also, you never know when you'll be without the internet and for how long.

I'm also very impatient sometimes and downloading a game that I really would like to play that's about 50 gb or more is maddening.

Already bought a 200GB card for like $80, it's not a big deal at all.

>Also, you never know when you'll be without the internet and for how long.
When something is already downloaded, I don't see how that's the issue. The point he is making is that you're robbed of the option completely.

Oh and over on GameFAQs this old patent for a new Vita model filed back in 2015 (read: not the current year) is being circulated on Nintendo boards that Sony is trying to copy the Switch.

Hunter 41770831

As big as games are now because devs aren't even bothering to compress anything, your storage will fill up fairly quickly. So you may not be able to install your entire digital library and well you know where I'm going with this.

I mean yeah I guess you could just go out and buy 6 tb drives or some shit, but fuck that... That money could be used towards more games.

its even "good speed" card?
or did you bought the cheapest with mroe space and will get your games slower?

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41770900

Just saw that in a video of an extreme hardcore nintendo fan, that always like to claim how nintendo is the best possible and the rest is crap.

is that really an old patent for a new vita?
then im sure he isnt going to make a video fixing the miss interpretation about it, if true.

And at the end.... we know they are going to copy the switch on some way, because it feel like a possible thing for the future.

I mean, I can Imagine Microsoft doing some kind of "xbone Tablet", All the games of the Xbone being compatible and carrying if you have them online.
That way they do 2 things, Extend the live spam of the Xbone, because all the games are compatible.
And that way they can keep pushing the "play anywhere" philosophy they have with making it that if you buy a game on the online store you can download it on any of your devices.

I mean, on the future should be cheaper to make Xbone graphics on a tablet soon.... isnt it?

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41771004

>As big as games are now because devs aren't even bothering to compress anything, your storage will fill up fairly quickly.
Are you insinuating that it will get games my good fellow?

Says Ultra. Not that I care about fast downloads, I have like a million other things I could be doing.

>is that really an old patent for a new vita?

Goes without saying that the Wii U GamePad looks like a copy of the Vita with the sticks switched.

>I mean, I can Imagine Microsoft doing some kind of "xbone Tablet"

Everything you just described already exists as a Windows 10 tablet.

Hunter 41771013

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41771017

It won't.
Please understand.

Hunter 41771020


DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41771437

>Everything you just described already exists as a Windows 10 tablet.
Thats the answer I always get, and that isnt true.
The diference is that a Windows 10 tablet, woulc be more complicated because is a computer.
And the more important part, you dont get every game you already own on your xbone on the go, you just get few titles, and the windows store is complete garbage compare to the xbox store, if it was a portable xbone you will get every xbone game and all the retrocompatible 360 games.

do you think is the same as saying "a windows 10 tablet that have halo wars, recore, resident 5, gears of war, and thats it"

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41772321

Multiple sources are saying Bomberman R has performance issues. Fucking Bomberman.


DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41772325

we wont know really until is out...
I mean... it sound like a really lame thing to mess up.
That would be the fault of the programer, because even the wii have a fair running bomberman.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41772330

It was made in Unity which the Switch is supposed to support but it doesn't fully function correctly or something so performance is fucked.
Comes out in a little over a week, so these things should have been ironed out already.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41772341

and maybe are fake rumors. I find hard to think that a game like bomberman is made to run like crap.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41772602

lol, you think a anti-Nintendo task force exists or something?

I can't find the comparison video of a guy saying how the Xbox One BC version of GTA IV runs worse than it does running on an actual 360.
The point I was going to make is usually people tell the truth when they say a game runs like ass, it's usually the other way around when people will lie and say a game runs good (see Driv3rGate).
