Quoted from Darscot:

I didn't think much of Spider-Man or Horizon Zero Dawn, they both seemed average games that I couldn't play more than a couple of hours before losing interest. GTA is is what it is but its not a cinematic adventure or visual masterpiece its just everything under the sink all in one game. Right now I'm playing the Resident Evil 2 Remake and loving it, that kind of experience just can not be found on Switch it is fucking stunning in 4K HDR with a solid 60 FPS and the sound design is at another level as well.
Sorry for the three quotes in a row, didn't mean to hog the thread.

Thankfully there's something for everyone out there. I generally don't like realistic games, and I hate horror games. I like fun, colorful, beautiful music, and weird. I can't get anything like Splatoon, Mario Odyssey, Zelda, ARMS, Labo, Donkey Kong Country, etc on any other console. Nintendo's value is in their IP, style, and hardware concepts...not raw tech. IMO there's zero reason for them to be like the others...if you want mega-high tech skin 'n pores games, there are already multiple options...PC, Xbox, PS. If you want a system that can be played at home or on the go, with cool controller gimmicks & amazing 1st party exclusives (and 3rd party/indie support is pretty decent as well), Nintendo Switch is awesome.

I’m hoping the Granadia HD collection comes out soon. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t played it when it first came out (as my favorite RPG of all time is the Lunar series) so I’m hoping this as good as everyone says. Already have a Switch, but I might pick up the lite purely for its form factor and because I mostly play in portable mode as it is.

You are such a fanboy no one is saying Nintendo doesn't do what they do better than anyone else. There is no need to talk shit about everything else. Some asked for some recommendations and people gave them.

Quoted from Rarehero:

I read that it only runs at 30fps...I dunno, kinda turns me off for a side scroller, since all the classics ran at 60fps. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze runs at 60fps. Seems like 3rd party ports always have trouble optimizing frame rate.

You yourself are disappointed with frame rates on Switch and BotW frame rate has serious issues. You never mention BotW has a frame rate in the 20s and can not make 1080p. You telling me you don't want this

I wasn’t talking shit. Guy said he likes realism games, and I said PS4 is for realism games.

I like 60fps for racing, shooting, fighting....BOTW’s framerate doesn’t bother me. It works with the art style & pace. It looks like a Miyazaki movie, and the framerate helps the cinematic animated nature of it.

LOL, come on you can't be serious, the 24 FPS of film does not work on a television. It only works in the cinema because of the way the light flashes through the film and it is a rock solid smooth 24. BotW does not have a 24 FPS frame rate, it tries to maintain 30 but can't so as soon as the action or visuals heat up the frame rate takes a dive. Nintendo has been putting a tonne of effort into it and it has gotten better with patches. That being said no one actually think a diving inconsistent frame rate looks good or is any way cinematic in nature. It also can't maintain a 1080p visual buffer so they render at 900p and stretch the image up to get it it to 1080p. No one thinks that makes it look good either. Nooo your not talking shit at all, LOL. I'll leave you guys to talk Switch games.

Every show & movie you see on television is 24fps, unless it's the news or soap operas....or do you turn on that bullshit smooth-o-vision and make everything look like soap operas?

It's mostly 30, it's 100% gorgeous, it 100% plays great, is an incredible game design feat, it 100% has amazing character designs, animation and music. The forest is the only place frame dips are noticeable.

It's the best game I've ever played. Every time I try to play Horizon or Uncharted, I fall asleep from the boredom of walking creepy corpses talk too much.

This is Switch Club, ya maniac! Go play your skin 'n pores corpse games that all look exactly the same.

Red necking switch to a virtual pinball machine. Duct tape and a few 2 x 4s.
Works great! Joy-cons easily removed. ( not taped to wood)

What Bluetooth module should I get so I can use wireless headphones with my switch? Reliability and simplicity are more important than price. Thanks!

Any body double dip for the new Switch? This is a weird move for Nintendo especially with the exchange program. They are going to have to put the original switch on sale. Selling them at the same price is crazy. Also now the portable design Switch Lite is no longer that great at being portable. Is there any hope for a Switch Pro this feels like another step away from the home console market.

For those who love a good RPG, Grandia HD collection was released on Friday. Give it a look if your found of the JRPG and a spiritual successor to the Lunar games.

I played Grandia II on the Dreamcast and really enjoyed it. Bought Grandia I for the PS later on but never ended up finishing it. I don't know if I have the patience for them nowadays but glad to see them getting some love.

I will probably only get sucked in if they release a cool ass Zelda or Metroid version. I hardly ever play in portable either, but would like to have a special edition one to add to my Nintendo handheld collection.

Hard to say if they will firesafe the existing inventory. They aren't exactly advertising this swap out program. Most parents will never know the difference.

Anybody picking up Astral Chain tomorrow? I have been on an action game kick lately playing through some of my backlog and this one looks pretty sweet. Getting good reviews too.

#2333 73 days ago

Anyone trade their original switch to GS for the new longer battery one? My friend did....he said its double the battery life. The ONLY thing I can see for not doing it, is if you want to run the homebrew.

Get Astral Chains on Switch, it’s the new platinum games, the grand masters of frenetic beat’em all action with a twist.
As always they outdid themselves and came up with something radical and new.

Hm, I like radical and new...but I’ve never liked Platinum’s games much at all. I couldn’t get rid of Wonderful 101 fast enough. Their games tend to be so frenetic with convoluted control schemes...I’m not sure I’ll like it if it’s similar in design theory as their other games.

If you didn't like Bayonetta or Neir: Automata you probably wouldn't like this game.

Yes Astral Chains fits the description, frenetic and a control scheme that "get some time to get used to" as they say in the reviews. Well truth is the control scheme is a mess for no reason, every platinum game has a weird control scheme, but their games are always so good that I get over it.

I’ll wait until they release a demo. I’m churning through my backlog (finished Shovel Knight last nite) & Zelda Link’s Awakening comes out in a few weeks!

#2349 68 days ago

I'm playing astral chain and I like it a lot. Super easy unless on the hardest mode but super fun so far!

#2350 67 days ago

They've released 20 SNES games today. Cool! Wireless SNES controllers coming soon. I've only played SNES games on an emulator. I might need to get a set of controllers for a "real" experience.
