    30FPS or 60FPS I think its still worth being a bit excited about. Both games on a handheld are cool as hell. But we have seen less demanding games on The Switch that couldn't even hold 30FPS.

    Skyrim on The Switch is also running at 30FPS, So it doesn't surprise me at all if Doom/WSII is also running at 30FPS.

    To be fair though a lot of that has to do with it being a massive open world with a lot of assets to render. I'm rather impressed Skyrim will run as well as it will upon release considering. On the other hand, DOOM is a lot more enclosed and easily manipulated to boost performance and can even be dialed down further in given regards from the options you see on PC.

    I personally though, won't buy it if it doesn't run at 60fps. It's pointless to me.

    Ya but DOOM and Wolfenstein and Particle effects and light/shadows going off and that seems to be the issue games have on The Switch. Mario Xcom even has its moments where it dips under 30 slightly.

    Now I could see them running the games unlocked so it can go up to 60FPS, But I personally don't see a locked 60fps happening. Hope they prove me wrong tho but ether way those games are cool to have on a portable system.

    I need to see the game on the Switch screen.

    I like everything about the game but those retro sprites looked like ass on my monitor, the environments looked great but those retro sprites looked so horribly out of place. Hopefully it looks better on the portable screen and I can get past what I think is a bad aesthetic because the idea and team behind the game is promising.
    Tech, I'm not sure if you know this, but the download for Octopath's demo is avalible. Not sure if it is running. Gotta download it first.

    Too bad it's not native. Same as PS4 remote play then, which I already do anyways.
    There are some reasons I can think of. First one it requires 60GBs+ for the PS4 / PC version. Vita version while it has a shared block with PS4/PC is limited in it's control and graphics. It still too however requires 15GBs.
    CPU is extremely weak and the PS4 already has some performance issues in the lobby with 50+ people, granted that's an issue with every system but it's still a problem, especially on a weaker CPU.

    You might be right, don't get me wrong but I'd be surprised.
    It's capabilities actually aren't that great. It's 1:1 the Tegra X1 SoC going by die shot. There's no underestimating the thing, it's just not a good SoC. A57, the performance cores is a power hungry / inefficient CPU. 256CC Maxwell is very meh at this point and outperformed by Adreno 530/540 and is way more efficient than the CCs. The SoC in Switch is downclocked from the typical clock rate of an X1, so it's even weaker. If we talk FLOPs, sure it's faster than the PS3/Xb360, but only by 50%. In turn a PS3 to PS4 is 780% difference.

    They have been working more on Odyssey.

    Top picture is the initial trailers, and the bottom is the same scene from today's trailers.

    Okay so finished the 'Octopath Traveler' demo as Primrose and I freaking loved it.

    Got beat down hard by the first boss though. >: Went back, spent some time grinding money to go buy all of the gear back in town. A few more potions. Having done that though gave me a better gist of the combat so when I returned to the boss, I absolutely obliterated. XD

    Super old school but it's still very pretty and brought back good memories.

    So this direct was amazing and sad at the same time.

    First off no true Mario party. Hasn't been a good one since 8 when there wasn't that stupid fucking car. Secondly nothing about stardew valley and lastly WHERE THE FUCK IS ANIMAL CROSSING HELLO?!?!?!

    Now the good news. Hell yes on DOOM and I NEED OCTOPATH IN MY LIFE LIKE OMG and Mario looks more amazing than before.

    The direct was pretty good over all just where the fuck is animal crossing....

    also I want to say how terrible Xenoblade 2 looks. Oh my god the voice acting with the lack of character animations is so fucking cringy the lip sync is even off like really and the combat looks super slow

    I received a day one ORAS demo code. I am a chosen one.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 had a Skies of Arcadia vibe, I had to look away because I think they revealed too much.

    I see more reasons all the time to get a Switch, my mind is changed.

    That's odd because for some reason I liked it, it's very reminiscent of Dreamcast JRPG's

    DOOM for Switch will have the full game in a physical cart, with multiplayer as an optional free download.

    Picture comparison. Definite downgrade. It will all come down to frames per second.

    I'm assuming no one in this thread has regretted getting a Switch ?

  18. #12398
    Not at all. As far as I'm concerned it's had the best launch year of all the current gen consoles. By the end of this year I'm going to have nearly the same amount of games for the Switch as I do for PS4 after 4 years. Despite it's slow start.

    Alts: Rogue, Druid and Paladin plus many, many more.

    Well kind of. Lack of games and most of the stuff I want is just ports. Ended up buying just Zelda for it at first and eventually just took it back.

    Not a bad system. I just don't want to buy ports of games I already own. I don't really like owning the same game twice for a different system and the only time I have done is if friends are on 2 different systems.
