Switch is confirmed shit: the thread Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41729581[Last 50 Posts]

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.

You're pretty funny too. I've read the criticisms of the Switch, and I don't care. This thread is purely about the graphics, for Gods' sake! How much more nitpicky and "My console is better than your console!" douchey can you get?
The Wii got criticized for its technical inferiorities, the Wii U got criticized for its inferiorities, and I didn't care either of those times because I didn't care about the aspects that were criticized, and the Switch is no different.

Is this... surprising to you? This is basically Nintendo's version of the PS Vita that comes with shit to hook it up to a TV. Stronger than a regular handheld, not as strong as other modern consoles. It's like picking up a PSP and wondering why it doesn't have graphics as good as the Xbox 360 or something.

is this a meme?

the switch is designed to be a console that doubles as a handheld, and expecting a handheld to have as much power as something like the PS4 is uh

not that smart tbh

kinda setting yourself up for disappointment there

p much this

Violette on da phone!qXZZ8NDkR. 41729671

I think the criticism stems from the fact the Switch is supposed to be a home console first and a portable console second.
Ever since the N64, Nintendo has been all about compromises to their home consoles in order to focus on new and innovative features, yet all those compromises I can live with.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41729675


actually there's this Nintendo group I'm in on facebook with like thousands of members and tons of them are shitting on the Switch for a variety of reasons

the really big things people are angry about are the paid online and the fact that there is basically only one game to be excited for at launch. and it's also more expensive than people thought it would be.


look whether you want to admit it or not, things like graphics, resolution and especially framerate are important today; and it's now already known that the Switch is running on hardware more outdated than Xbone or PS4, which are ALREADY outdated compared to a decent PC.


they shouldn't advertise it as their next big mainline console if we're supposed to have handhold-level expectations, also why does being part handheld mean it can't have could tech?


I never said that it can't have tech. Just that it being built for portability alongside everything else means that the graphics aren't going to be everything we've got on the PS4 and XBone. Graphics and resolution and all that are important, sure. But Nintendo has always been the company that didn't care much about sacrificing visual potential for the sake of trying new things. The Switch is no exception.
As long as it's fun to play, I don't care if it's 1080p, 900p, 720p, or even 480p. Fun is fun. The only thing out of all of this that might get in the way of that for me is framerate. But there's still time for that to be worked on.

!tcSassyDEQ 41729680

the main issue is that handheld devices more often have a hard time doing the same thing stationary systems can

portability being the main reason. noones going to lug around a handheld the size amd weight of a PS4, cuz its a pain in the ass

theyre knowingly sacrificing "the most powerful technology" and continuing to do what theyve been know for

making systems with slightly below the standard graphical capabilities, but offsetting it with fun, wierd, and new features that keeps the company running

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41729683


I guess I see your point but still I don't think the Switch is nearly as "innovative" as people are giving it credit for. I mean like you said it's a console/handheld hybrid, but what else? The Wii-U and 3DS already exist so why do we need something that is just both in one if it can't do more than what they are already capable of?

Nintendo is definitely usually the leader innovation--touch screens, motion controls, 3D on a handheld, all that stuff was genuinely great and innovative, but I'm just not seeing that kind of genius with the Switch.

now don't get me wrong, if they announced a new mainline pokemon game or a sequel to Colosseum and Gale Of Darkness I would buy it in a heartbeat.

now i wont argue that. aside from "portable console games", it really doesnt have much in terms of innovation

s'just a wii u gamepad cut into 3 pieces really

i myself probably wont even get one until more game are announced, since the new zelda is releasing for wii u as well


i figured it was only a matter of time until nintendo jumped on the bandwagon

though on the same note, they dont really have very many HARDCORE multiplayer games to justify it

its whatever though

Lisbon 41729696

Nintendo's latest hunk of plastic is shit. Go figure.

At least in terms of Nintendo IP, probably.


It's a neat idea, I think. But yeah, it's not the same kind of huge leap forward that those others have been. At the same time, though, consider how well those all went over. The motion controls on the Wii are pretty shit most of the time. The original 3D on the first models of the 3DS gave people headaches and required you to hold it a specific distance from your head at a specific angle in a specific lighting environment for it to even work. And the early DS touch screens broke far too easily.
Them taking it down a notch and taking a smaller step with innovation is kind of a welcome change. I'll still probably wait until later to buy it, though. Games make a console, after all.

I don't think there's much need to pay, though, unless you're gonna be a Splatoon 2 player or something. Nintendo's never been too big on the online side of things.

Exactly. It's not a big deal that the Switch is gonna have paid online. Just don't pay. You won't miss out much with them.

Metal Link 41729776

I'm getting this console and I'll even pay for the online as long as they get the better servers they have been talking about.

☲ Prince Ember Storm!SNowbAlLfo 41729777

If the money goes towards better dedicated servers and the like, it's probably totally worth it to pay for the online if you're intending to use it.

BMO 41729788

All systems start out pretty shit at first. It takes time for developers to really figure out how to use a system to it's best capability. Remember the first PS3 games that looked like PS1 games?

It's pretty common for people to just need time to figure out where to stretch the console.

Most ports are going to be shit for that reason. But, hey, that's also pretty common. Most publishers don't care too much about ports. As long as they can put it on the system, their job is done.

Switch has a pretty weak line up, and 1, 2 switch shouldn't be full price, especially compared to Nintendo Land, Mii Plaza, and Wii Sports.

We'll see how the system evolves as time goes on. I hope it, like all consoles, figures out the direction it needs to head.

In some ways, maybe it have to be weaker.. i mean, it cant be portable and have the power of a stationary console.

But for some reason alot of nintendo fans like to claim how its As powerfull if not stronger than the PS4 and Xbone.

Now, it could be that this port is lazy as hell, instead of finding the best way to make it run stable, they just turn off every particle effect and call it a day.

I mean, why does the Mario game and look hundred of times superior? because is optimise, this one have to be addapted.
heck, even wii u games look superior.

Granted, i dont expect it to be strong, but will be enough to get ports, even if are graphically lamer.

>PC master race, bitches
If you always want the most advanced graphics available, then don't play consoles at all and just stick to a PC you frequently replace the parts of.
But me? I'm content favouring features and exclusives over graphics. The two things that even Xbox and Playstation gamers actually care about and only bring up technical aspects to brag about.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41730305


whoa whoa hold up

I'm not one of those mustard race douchebags

I understand that the Switch has exclusives that people really want, and that's fine.

but there's no escaping the fact that in these days, tech/hardware does matter. I know people always say "I just care about the games, I don't care about graphics!!" but those people are becoming more and more the minority.

and I'm not even trying to say that I value graphics over gameplay, because I don't completely, but a fuckton of people do and that's why Sony and Microsoft pander to them so much.

and people have been complaining about Nintendo's hardware limitations since the original Wii, and you would think that if they didn't want the Switch to have the same fate of the Wii-U, maybe they could try to attract more of the "hardcore" gamers who do care about graphics?

I mean let's face it, the multiplats are inevitably gonna be shit again even if they do have 100 third-party developers, because those developers know that all their money is in Xbone/PS4/PC, because Nintendo's core audience are not often buying CoD, Battlefield, or many shooters in general besides Splatoon. maybe I'm wrong, but I would imagine that after the Wii-U, third-party developers will be even more skeptical of putting significant effort into their Switch ports because that's not where they're gonna turn the most profit.

that's actually the exact reason Nintendo is able to persist at all--their core audience, the people who call themselves Nintendo fans are so dedicated to Nintendo that they WILL buy the Switch for a handful of exclusives (which will probably be really good, but may not justify the money investment).

I own an Xbox One, and admittedly there aren't a ton of exclusives, BUT there are a fucking ton of multiplats that run a lot better and have much larger communities than the Wii-U version had/Switch version WILL have. so I got a lot more bang for my buck with an Xbox One, despite owning a PC (which I'm going to upgrade), because as of now my Xbone can run games that my PC can't. so it's like, the best of both worlds for me.

Nintendo fans are trying to post about having Skyrim as a selling point. Skyrim, a game that came out like half a decade ago and was literally on Xbox 360/PS3. why is that supposed to be impressive?

but I'm not trying to be a dick, if you feel like the Switch exclusives are worth it and you've got the money, go ahead. personally there aren't a lot of games I'm looking forward to this year besides Prey and Crackdown 3.

Frequently? Heck no. Upgrading/replacing parts is only done every 5-6 years, and I'm a pretty heavy user. Besides, most games these days are made with consolers in mind anyway and they don't bother optimizing for PC hardware at all. So you hardly need the newest brick-sized GPU unless you're running simulations or number crunching with it.

And if you're dropping $200 extra for a card that's "VR Ready" you're just a sucker for silly novelties.

its just that nintendo doesn't care

they've never cared about their hardcore audience

the first time they got one through super smash bros melee they basically told them to fuck off for years, and still don't really like that side of their playerbase

attracting the hardcore players from call of duty or whatever isn't super important to them, and they never really gave much of a shit about super high quality graphics, so im not sure why all of this is coming as a surprise. they much prefer to cater to their "casual" or "family" audiences

theyd much rather have their audience that simply likes them and like their games. it is what keeps 90% of their players coming back all the time

Nintendo's thing now a days seems to be only really caring about their own games and nothing else. Which is fine by me assuming they make like half a dozen decent games on the Switch. I figure any game console I spend as much on games as I do on the system itself is worthwhile.

Some would consider it courteous to be complete in their answers, even if the purpose is not to convince.
Additionally it could help further on in the conversation, as providing detailed reasoning means you get a bit more insight into his preferences and reasoning style, which could prevent misunderstandings later on and prevent forays into pointless topics.
Might´ve even been done from the line of thought that you might want to convince him too, as is quite common in disagreements, and his post would´ve been the perfect start for that as he worded pretty well why he considers it the way he does.

Just a few suggestions as to why he might´ve gone into such detail without caring much for convincing you.

Having multiple consoles is actually pro consumer. It forces companies to improve rather than continue giving the same mediocre bullshit.
PS2 was an average console, average because it was underpowered but yet it had the most sales. While the original Xbox was stronger it lacked sales, this forced Microsoft to make the Xbox 360 even better. Nintendo couldn't couldn't get by on normal hardware also despite being stronger than the PS2 and so for better or worse we got the Wii. Now Sony felt no need to improve drastically and turned out the steaming pile of shit the PS3. Sony deservingly got their ass kicked and thus they improved from the PS3 to the 4.
A fraction or most of the good exclusive games wouldn't even exist if we had one console. The only reason Sony funds millions into Naughty Dog is so they can move their hardware over other companies, take out MS and they compete with no one or the likes of halo and Gears then you see them cut back on the budget. Plenty of new IPs end up losing the publisher money, see Evolve from 2K.

Good luck with that.

The fact it can't use disks is just common sense. So all Wii games were out right there. If a majority of the Wii U games that exist in people collections are physical, then it makes no sense for any Wii U/Wii parts in the Switch at all so digital is out too.
Nintendo has already been profiting off of re-releases for the longest time starting with the Mario All Stars collection and then later for maximum scamming profiting once they realized they could charge top dollars for their 2MB copy/paste roms. (As opposed to Xbox emulation, you can literally change out the game file in their Nintendo emulator with little to no change to the code at all.)

Speaking of roms and scams. Those 'free' Virtual Console games, you only get them free for that specific month and then you have to pay for them. It's not bad enough I had to pay to get it both on the Wii and the Wii U but I would have to pay for it a third time too. While Xbox One games and PS+ games are rentals too at least you can keep them indefinitely as long as you keep paying for the service.
The added 'feature' of online multiplayer for the VC games is also a joke considering we have up to Wii emulation with online support already. Online for their older games was already a thing back when the GameCube was out. They would have to get to the really good multiplayer games pretty fast to make it at least worthwhile for convenience i.e. people that were too retarded to setup an emulator. They'll probably start off with bullshit like NES or SNES titles but they need to get as quickly as possible to the four player N64 games.

The switch is granted to be a success, i mean, it pretty much is the "3DS sequel". with an HDMI port to the TV.

Now the question will be if the player base is big enough, will it get ports of the games in other consoles, or will it just get its own "third party kind of exclusive" titles?

We may never know.

I'm not, I'm asking because I don't want to shell out for a Switch when it doesn't feel that long ago since I got my Wii U.

When Twilight Princess came out for the Wii, they still ported it for the GameCube, just mirrored the game for right-handed players.

I'd like to know if Zelda: BotW won't have it's graphics nerf'd to play on the Wii U while the Switch will keep all it's grandure just to encourage players to buy the Switch more.

it will probably have nerfed graphics but I doubt it's a big deal because either way it's only 30fps, it's probably not worth shelling out the excessive costs for the Switch just for one game, especially since its not a multiplayer game.

besides Nintendo fans are always going on about how graphics don't matter and "I JUST WANT GAMES!!!"

To be fair, Nintendo makes what they have look great on their own games. So even though the graphics aren't as great as they could be, Nintendo tends to make it up with their artistic styling.

No horror on the Switch? What a missed opportunity!

I know it will never graphically stand up, but imagine having the ability to switch on an AR like experience on it. Man, it'd be neat for sure!

Or, I mean, Fatal Frame. I know it's silly at this point, but the console is built for it.

I don't play horror games because I get spooked, but horror on the Switch should just be a given. Imagine how immersive a FNAF like game would be on a switch, for example!

There's been a horror game announced for the Switch:


Granted, we don't know anything about it, and it may very well end up as the next Sadness. But there is a horror title in development for it.

I think the Switch looks pretty rad, I don't really like the paid online but everything else looks great.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41751785

Dead space wouldn't work so well on the Switch. Unless you butcher the controls to joycon based aiming. Please don't do this.
Well, that's not the worst thing, cuz, honestly, it still has to work in the portable mode, so it would still have the classic controls built in.

Also, yes, Dead Space is awesome.

Man, amnesia had that gimmicky mouse based drag movement. You could replicate that on the switch and it would be just as gimmicky :P

Also, I do like that games sorta have to work when the joycon are on the console, so it means that motion controls can't be a forced given. Meaning games CAN do it, but they don't work if they force you to do it.

That seems to be in pretty early development.

I'm more referring to their own stuff rather than games that get ported over. Like the graphics and looks of most 3D Nintendo games have aged really well over the years in comparison to a lot of the other 3D games.

Fair, still seems stupid to judge something before you've got some reliable info on it.

Probably yeah, Overwatch would really fit Nintendo pretty well, as would diablo come think of it.

Might be they'd consider it unwanted rivalry for their own sorta games though, and perhaps not fitting in terms of violence and gore or something.

Having done graphics programming, there are a few tricks the programmers could have used to make the switch version look just about as good, however I highly doubt they had the time or desire to do all that work.

Additionally there's: >>41752327 to consider

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41752573

There is GTAV on the 360 and PS4.

and probably the switch will not get a port, and we will dont know if is because the power is so lame, or because rockstar will just never port the game to the switch because is so old by now.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41752575

you know, maybe the switch can run better graphics, but they just cant push it to its best because they are corcern with the battery life.

So they dont push it so you get the most battery possible.

Reaver 41752580


Might also be possible they are focussing on more important things than graphics, as: >>41752561 implies.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41752599

I know Gameplay is more important, but at the same time, that coment pretty much loose credibility when he just say "fuck GTA is garbage" probably just because nintendo cant get any of that game forever.

and power limitation can be a concern in alot of games, remember how the Wii version of Dead Rising was totally inferior and lame because it couldnt have much zombies in the screen at the same time.

graphical fidelity doesnt matter as much, what matter is getting the friking ports, and nintendo have not getting thouse in really long time.

Yeah, nintendo's not been really good at getting the cross-platform stuff in the past.

I'm ready to give it a spin on March 3rd when it comes out. Gonna be playing it with some buds, I'm gonna have some multiplayer games (only Bomberman and Snipperclips) and have Zelda.

Though, I'd get 1 2 switch if a bunch of people pitched in money for it, though it kinda looks like shit and I don't really want to give nintendo any money for such a lame looking thing. I'd rather wait until they remake Wii Sports like they did on the Wii U.

I'll let you guys know what I think.

Nevermind, Snipperclips isn't a launch day game. Only launch "window". I guess it's only 8 player Bomberman for multiplayer.

honestly besides Breath Of The Wild and the portable hybrid gimmick, what does the Switch actually have going for it that makes it worth buying at launch?

If it gets more good games and drops in price (which it inevitably will) I might buy it, but I have made the mistake of buying the first edition of a console the year it comes out already (Xbox One).

Considering that i didn't get a wii u and have always maintained that graphics matter very little i do not feel the slightest bit liable for such inconsistencies in others.
As to the rest: I'm just wait and see, as i am with just about all of that stuff.

Never buy things at launch, that's almost as bad as buying pre-ordered.
This post was edited by its author on .

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41752716


It's worse than buying pre-ordered for sure, I mean at least when you pre-order a game you can usually be pretty certain of what you are getting and if you will like it. but it's still good to wait for those deals they have where you get the game and all the DLC for 30% off or whatever a few months later. now granted I'm guilt of pre-ordering plenty of times but still.

when you buy a console at launch I don't think there is any real guarantee of quality, because it's not possible to know as much about a console as you can about just a specific game before it comes out. and a console costs a LOT more than one game.

and if you buy the Switch at launch, let's be honest, you're basically paying 400+ dollars to get one good game (which is going to be on Wii-U anyways). I mean maybe some people are hyped about other launch titles but I don't think you can deny that Nintendo is banking on Zelda being the system-seller.

Fair point too, i wonder if there's even worse possible by pre-ordering a console...

For people that don't have a wii u to get it on the alternative is not as attractive if they really want that zelda game.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41752903

The online is projected by nintendo to be $17 - $27 a year. So, even if it goes up to $30 to round out the number in NA, that's not too expensive. And, they plan to give exclusive sales to users of the service, matching similar to something like Amazon Prime bonus deals. My Nintendo already offers that, but you have to unlock said bonuses, while this service will just give them to you. Match that up to the fact that purchases on the E Shop linked to a My Nintendo account give you more discounts later means that this minor set of exclusive discounts makes it easier to unlock additional discounts on their digital market place.

That doesn't mean that they have the best model for a digital market place, but I do find that to be an interesting interaction that can make the regular e shop purchase almost always cheaper than a physical purchase, which eventually offsets the cost of the online.

Plus, if all that money goes to stabilizing online, that's always good and might draw attention from other devs to make more multiplayer experiences with the Switch.
Lets see how this move plays out. I hope positively.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41752916


I think what really matters with the online is if they will ditch the ridiculous 16-digit friend codes and have real voice chat...and we already know that voice chat is gonna be done through a freakin' phone app.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41752920

Well, yeah. It seems silly to have your phone on you, sure, but they'd have to put a head set jack in the joy con or sell a proprietary headset.
At least with the phone, head sets that work on the phone work for Switch chat.
Plus, the phone has a keyboard for text chat. You could even blutooth a keyboard.

If it ain't broke, why adopt the shitty way Xbox does it?

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41752921

File: 1485982753073.png (405.32 KB, 900x999, 16_bitties_by_slb_creations-da…)

Let see if the supposed "special deals" are not like 10% off for 3 year old games.
or a max of 40% off NES games.

Nintendo is known for not giving huge discount on stuff.

And for the price, it would be fine, even if the deals are bad, Just the infrastructure, have to be good, and the servers are better than the actual ones.
Nintendo have to show that they are serious on putting an online service.

the chat thing is fine as an alternative... but making it the only thing is kind of lame, specially that you have to waste your battery into the chat, it will be weird, and not the best thing. but lets see if that even matter, because you cant talk (at least in splatoon 2) if they are not in your friend list.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41752927

With the Wii U, they got rid of the friend code. I do believe there is still a friend code tied to the Nintendo Network account, but you could add people by user name. It would send a request and if they responded with an add, it'd work.
So, the whole 16-digit friend codes are not gonna be the main way to find and add friends, as they've shown they haven't done this on the Wii U for quite some time.

Well, they give 50% to 75% off old games on MyNintendo. I would assume they would grant similar deals with the paid service. Which means we'd get 10%-30% on new games and then they have to ascend to some magic status dictated by Nintendo to get more than that.

They've always been pretty weird about it. But, MyNintendo shows they have some idea about the direction they're going.

Yes, I hope they put all that cash into infrastructure. And given they aren't even really talking about all the little extras an niceties shows to me they didn't even really think about that and just thought about how much it would cost to have good servers. So, let's hope that run lean and focus on quality servers approach works.

I have this feeling they won't even allow voip if it's not from a friend, but given the parental features tied directly into the app, they might be opening up the gate and allowing more.

Also, with the supposed idea that the console IS a touch screen, it would be nice to see the functionality show up while it's undocked, though it's hard to want to really want a way to have it work while docked with text chat. I suppose we'll see. I do think it's the easiest way for them to not have to make people shill out for an extra attachment or a proprietary headset.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41752950


>the shitty way Xbox does it?

wut? plugging a headset (which comes with the console) into the controller is a shitty way to do it? I don't follow.

not to mention all the third-party headset support for Xbone/PS4 that it doesn't seem like the Switch will have.


>And given they aren't even really talking about all the little extras an niceties shows to me they didn't even really think about that and just thought about how much it would cost to have good servers.

I think, in this day and age, it's naive to assume that a corporation is putting more money into one thing just because they aren't putting as much money into another thing.

developers are cutting costs as much as possible, and often delivering only the bare minimum needed for consumers to not collectively protest against it or not buy enough of it.

If you have the time, this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDEtT9j_zAU&t=515s has some good insight on why NOT buying games at launch and waiting for the better deal is such a good idea. now, the video focuses on the game Destiny, but I think it might be worth a watch because for a good bit of it the guy examines the business practices of major developers in general.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41752954

Well, they did have a console generation to perfect it, and they still use proprietary headsets, having no compatibility for other usage. Not to mention, typing with a controller :|

I don't know why you're trying to convince me how to spend my money. I'm certainly not trying to convince you how to spend yours. I'm just looking at what is happening and giving my opinion.
Sorry it's different than yours.

And, additionally, just because I am buying a Switch day one, doesn't mean I believe ALL preorders are good. In fact, I don't. It has lead to a pretty awful culture of pre order sales.
But at the same time, I am going to buy it. Just like I pre ordered KF2 and got exactly what I wanted.
In some cases, I trust the developer to give me something I want. And in other cases, I spend money to see where things go.

I don't always do it, but if no one bought anything just to see what it was like, well, no one would buy anything :|

So, I'm still gonna buy it. And I'll let you know what I think.

Here's the most likely thing:
Breath of the wild is probably fun. I'm sad I don't have more games. Bomberman is bomberman is bomberman.
The other features aren't out yet, so I can't communicate more until more shit comes out.

But, I'm not gonna whine or defend, just wait and see and hope it doesn't fail because I don't want ANY console to fail.

that's why I mentioned third-party headsets, I own a pair of Turtle Beaches for my Xbox 360 that I can also use for listening to and recording audio on my PC, and they were only 60 bucks. that's pretty cheap for decent headphones that work with game consoles.

>I don't know why you're trying to convince me how to spend my money.

That's exactly what I'm doing lol. I'm not trying to start a big fight or anything, I'm not upset, I just get really passionate about my opinions on these things and maybe I get too harsh sometimes. I'm sorry if I came across like I was personally attacking you or something.

!Beemo/ZZYY 41752964

For voice chat? They didn't do any of it. So, no, the didn't. They chose not to. They could have done it, but they did it. So, these are their baby steps. One hopes it'll get better as we go.

Oh, I'm not saying their not cheap. But if nintendo made one, you know everyone would say it's just Ninendo making people shill out for bs. Besides, on the phone app, you can use your pre existing head sets. So, that's neat. I'm just curious to see how it works, even if it's goofy. Cuz, it is goofy. Let's all agree it's silly to use your phone.
I only like the idea for text chatting since it has a keyboard. Maybe we'll see more games with text chat? Who knows! Only the future knows.

It just seemed like you were just bringing up how people should sell and make games out of the blue.
I do think pre-order culture is bad. But, that doesn't mean it can't work. And it doesn't have to work for everyone.

I'm more pre ordering it because I knew I was gonna get it anyway. Besides, I can use the opportunity to let people have a hands on experience rather than just going on word of reviewers to see if they want it or not. Which, they might not if Nintendo doesn't step up their title count :|

That's alright. If you don't mean it, you don't mean it. That's good we can come to an understanding on there not being any hard feelings.

I don't care if people buy the Switch, what bothers me is when people make ridiculous claims about it that are so obviously not true, but I don't see that so much here as I do on other websites.

And I do think the gaming industry as a whole is really not in great shape right now, but that's a whole other discussion and you could practically write a book on that if you wanted to. There are people who can explain it much better than I can.

And yeah pre-order culture sucks, it basically allows developers to make an enormous amount of money before their game is even released, sometimes before it is even finished. It also encourages cut content I think (because if they have already made money on the game that hasn't been released, why bother delivering the full experience to people who have already paid for it?), and micro-DLC (as pre-order bonuses, which are then inevitably released as regular purchases a few months later).

But at the same time it's also really difficult to discourage pre-ordering.

>it basically allows developers to make an enormous amount of money before their game is even released
When you preorder physically you can just put down a minimum of $5. That store then puts tat money into a bank account to accrue interest. Top selling developer games they already order a shitload of copies regardless of preorders just to meet those demands and post launch buyers.
If you preorder online you don't get charged till they ship the game which is usually a couple days before it releases.
You literally lose nothing from preordering. You're not getting charged extra (which is a weird common misconception from people) and you can cancel the preorder at any time.
The only bad thing with preorders is the whole multiple exclusive retailer DLC bullshit. You either buy multiple copies to then have to waste your time returning or you have to payout the ass for an exclusive gun skin or some other bullshit.

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

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.
>Comments are disabled for this video.
Textures look like ass and you even see a performance issue in the boss fight.
Commercials are supposed to make you want to buy the product, not avoid it.

Granted, I have hear that they prefer looks over substance, but still.

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.

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.

Don't worry, I'll see that this gets made.

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).
