DF....."Wii U owners aren't being short changed at all"


Watched the video. 900p vs 720p the only difference, both versions drop to 20FPS in different areas (I liked the bit where he was running through grass and the Wii U maintained a solid 30FPS and the Switch dropped to 20 what the fuck? :run: ) unless you run the Switch version in portable mode ... Which is at 720p anyway :lol:

With the Switch Nintendo have conceded the home console market and have adopted Sony's wildly popular handheld strategy of shoehorning console ports onto a handheld :rollin:

Quote:
We're going to be comparing the docked Switch experience to Wii U here, but before we do that, let's be clear - as we revealed yesterday, the handheld 720p Switch implementation offers up a smoother experience than the same code running in docked mode. For those looking for the smoothest possible experience, that's the way to go.


I'll wait until the Switch is the same price as a 3DS before jumping on board with a new handheld :up:

Have found my first real dungeon in this game, one of the divine beasts.

This game is spectacular.

It's a great game for sure. Have barely started it but it's great. Spending today (Labour Day long weekend in WA, unsure about rest of country) rearranging the home theatre so once that's finished hopefully I can get back into it :up:

Tried a copy of Just Dance for Switch, tastes just like pingers.

Not interested in switch it anything, but noticed the accessories in EB today... Seems kind of expensive!
The controller for example is $100, and the little snap on controllers are $70 each or $120 for a pair.
Do they do something other controllers don't?

Yes, they disconnect and are at risk of being recalled by Nintendo.

The feedback is supposed to be more HD whatever this means. More realism.

I wonder if Skyim will make use of the waggle? I didn't get the kinect version last gen.

So keeping this official thread for legitimate Switch gaming discussion -

Does anyone else find the level aesthetic in Mario Odyssey to be totally uneven?

Some of the worlds look fantastic. Others? Downright ugly to my eyes.

Overall I'm loving the game...not as much as Mario 3D World but it's a hell of a lot better than Sunshine.

I didn't really like the food world level. I thought that was a bit bland.

Lore dump!

Official website for Xenoblade 2 is up (get all the lore you need before release)
https://xenobladechronicles2.nintendo.com/
Resetera discussion thread:
https://www.resetera.com/threads/xenoblade-chronicles-2-official-website-now-fully-open-lots-of-new-media-of-titans-and-characters.3772/

The world is very interesting. Portable JRPGOTY? (YS VIII being close second for its butter smooth lightning quick combat)
I always think of the creature from the Never-ending Story (fantasy movie from the 1980s) when I see that titan on the cover.

Introduction to all the races/nations/kingdoms:

Looks to have ditched the Avatar style look of the previous game in favour of a more cartoony/anime look with emphasis on story again.

Fuck, if that's half the frames and less detail imagine how it looks in handheld mode! :lol:

When i finish zelda botw.

I never buy consoles on launch. I always wait until after the first wave / gen of titles is done. Not even when Dreamcast came out. All the greatest games come out right at the tail end of a machines life. But I might buy a pc one day if Star Citizen turns out to be the Game of the Century and not vaporware. Those pc things suck compared to consoles. Unlike Candy I prefer not playing games that let me cheat in them. Would rather buy amiibos to unlock hard mode in samus returns.(not that I will because it is anti-consumer imo)

Also won't be buying Xbox One X until I see a game that is built to be its killer app. I think the next RDR or Elder Scrolls. I am happy for those that got one but I prefer playing wait and see. (will still get it even if it flops like I did with PS Vita which I love)

Are you guys going to buy a PS5 if sony decides to end this gen early to prevent MS having the 'most powerful console on the market' title? This will be very bad for me personally because I upgraded to a PS4 Pro instead of getting a switch. I don't want this gen to end early. I think it needs to last longer and MS will probably leave the console biz if sony give them a killing blow, making console scene less interesting as one manufacturer dominates like nintendo in the 80s before Sega came along. You don't want that. What makes prices competitive is the free market when consumers have choices and shit to keep things in balance. If MS didn't fuck up this gen early they would be 50/50 market share with sony imo

OK so we'll keep this thread for actual gaming discussion, and Jasper's pile of shit for worthless trolling and unrelated arguing.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - this game is really, really good. At this stage I still prefer the setting and aesthetic of Chronicles X, however.

Up to chapter 3. Love how quick fast travel is, takes just a few seconds. Music is great ended up getting the soundtrack on my phone. Playing mostly portable. I’d say 80% portable 20% docked. What a year of great games.

And I’m completely new to the series, getting to grips with the combat, done my first combo attack. Just waiting for a patch to fix up some of the visuals.
