    Witcher 3 impressions

    in Nintendo Discussion 7 hours ago

    I'm still shocked a game like BOTW was able to run at all on a system with as weak a CPU as the Wii U. Yes, it was designed with the Wii U in mind and used twice as much RAM as pretty much every other game on the system, but still. I was under the impression that these massive open world games were harder on the CPU and that was why games like Skyrim couldn't come to the Wii U. Maybe they...

    Is Dragon Quest XI S gonna be the best multiplatform game released on the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    Compared to the other versions of the game yes. It's not often at all that the Switch version of a multiplat can be said to be the best version. Witcher 3 will be downgraded no matter how well it runs, and it has no new content. Doom and Wolfenstein were wizardry, but half the framerate and Doom was missing some content. This is the first time I can think of where there are advantages to the...

    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion 2 days ago

    Again, it wasn't like 3rd parties were going all in on making multiplats for the first couple of years of the generation. Bioshock 1 was exclusive to XBox. So was Mass Effect 1. Assassin's Creed only went multiplat because of the 360's success in its first year. It took several years for most of the big third parties to settle on making everything multiplat. A Gamecube 2 with hardware...

    Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition announced for the Nintendo Switch!

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    This and Superhot are very big. Also, Microsoft seems to be rather smart about what games it allows to go to the Switch. I know some people are clamoring for Halo, but Ori and Cuphead are jut perfect for the system in a way other (non-Rare) Microsoft franchises could never be. ...

    Witcher 3 impressions

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    Gaming journalists were brought in to play Witcher 3 in handheld mode. Seems like it holds up impossibly well despite how weak the Switch is compared to the XB1 and PS4. 720P docked. 540P handheld.  Both dynamic. The framerate seems to be on par with the other console versions, with similar slowdown in the swamp area but mostly keeping steady.  And even with the downgrades it...

    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion 6 days ago

    As others have noted, Nintendo had significant problems with HD development with the Wii U which they would have had with a 2006 version as well. So games in general would have taken longer to make. There;d be no Wii Sports, Wii Fit, or Wii Play. Twilight Princess would be a Gamecube exclusive. I'm not even sure the system would get that many more 3rd party multiplats. Mass Effect 1 and...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 August 2019

    JRPGfan said: Hynad said: I’m sorry? Hironobu Sakaguchi Producer and executive vice president, Square Japan; Chairman and chief executive officer, Square USA Of course, back then I wasn’t the president of Square. There was a management level above me, and I talked with them to make the decision. But PlayStation games being on CDs was the biggest factor. If you...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 August 2019

    The question is how the CD format would have affected the games the N64 had in real life. Long load times would be a real detriment to games like Mario 64, and big open areas like Hyrule Field also benefited from the cartridge format. Another question is how much the N64 would cost if designed to play CDs, but the games themselves would have been cheaper, so that would even out. Square...

    Are Nintendo games held to an unrealistic standard?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 July 2019

    The need for a compelling story varies from game to game. A game like Mario would not benefit from having a truly compelling story, as all it would do is take time away from actually playing the game, so having such a story would hurt the overall experience. So the absence of a compelling narrative is no reason to lower the game's score. A game like Fire Emblem, on the other hand, where the...

    Fire Emblem Three Houses reviews: Meta: 89, OC: 89

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 July 2019

    I think Fates had the best map and scenario design of the series, but its story was pretty disappointing, the characters were not well-handled compared to previous games, and the children and extra-dimensional base just didn't mesh with the rest of the game at all. It was both a step forward and a step backward. Awakening may be considered simple by FE story standards, but the way the...

    Are Nintendo games held to an unrealistic standard?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 July 2019

    The expectations for what Nintendo games sell have been skewed by the ridiculous sales of a bunch of Wii and DS games. The gamecube and N64 didn't have have any 10-million sellers other than Mario 64. Handhelds also didn't have many games that sold that much other than Pokemon, the GBA didn't have any other than Pokemon. Then along came the Wii and DS and all of a sudden NSMB is selling 30...

    Upgraded Switch model announced: Same price, battery life of 4.5 to 9 hours - Launches in August (Americas, Japan) and September (Others)

    It does seem that this is the 'pro' model. No performance or graphic updates, just a significantly better battery. Good for new buyers. They should faze out the original model now. ...

    Are there any years worse for Nintendo than 2015 and 2016?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 July 2019

    Financially maybe. Games-wise each year has at least something to it. 2011 had bad droughts for both the aging Wii and the just-launched 3DS, but it still had a great new Zelda, the North American release of Xenoblade, the 3D remake of Ocarina, and the 1-2 punch of Mario 3d Land and MK7. 2012 saw the 3DS hit its stride and begin releasing great game after great game. 2015 saw Xenoblade X,...

    2020: The peek of the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 June 2019

    To me the question is what will third party support be after the next gen consoles launch. Porting Doom and Witcher 3 are huge achievements despite their graphical downgrades. But if systems 3-5 times as powerful as the XB1X become the norm then those ports will become so impossible even Panic Button won't be able to do it. The rumors of a new upgraded Switch model may help, but the boost in...

    Zelda sequel in the same vein of Majora's Mask, and they've got a cutscene ready to show. I'm a bit worried about the game forcing players to explore the exact same game as BOTW. Maybe that dead guy under Hyrule castle sends them to something like the Dark World or Lorule. ...
