    Ocarina of Time vs Final Fantasy 7

    The Witcher 3 UPDATE brings cross-save and graphic options on Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

    Alrighty, just downloaded it and had a good play around with the various graphical options. My takeaway: for me at least, Saber made the right calls. After experimenting with the different settings I ultimately decided to put it mostly back to default with the exception of the very vague "Blur" setting which I turned off; anyway know what this one does exactly? It does look a lot more crisp...

    Option to unfollow threads/remove them from VGC Buddy?

    in Website Topics 4 days ago

    Sometimes, if a thread goes toxic or I'd just rather not think about it any more, it can be annoying to be continuously reminded of it by notifications in the VGChartz Buddy. Could we get an option to "unfollow"/"unwatch" a thread like IGN now has?...

    Best and worst DLC.

On the one hand, it was cool seeing Rapture before its collapse, more of Infinite's excellent gameplay was welcome, and the additional weapons and powers were cool.  On the other, Spoiler! killing off Elizabeth the way they did felt like such an...

    The Witcher 3 UPDATE brings cross-save and graphic options on Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion 5 days ago

    This is odd, I went to update mine and it still says I'm at 3.4 and that I'm using the latest version. Maybe it's just not live here yet; I dunno why they don't just flip a Switch and make it available worldwide at once. At any rate, phenomenal stuff; Saber and CDPR have done basically everything right on this one, from using the 32GB card to the technically remarkable feat of getting it running...

I'm endlessly frustrated with Retro's ridiculous now six year drought, but I'll only make myself feel worse by ruminating on it.  At the very least they've certainly amassed some significant veteran talent over the past year.  Some times we just have to wait and...

    The Witcher 3 UPDATE brings cross-save and graphic options on Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion 5 days ago

    As someone who finds the technical side of graphics fascinating from an academic point of view, this is indeed really cool even if I personally wouldn't risk my hardware for it. Then again I'm one of those folks who sees no need whatsoever for a more powerful mid-gen Switch and is completely satisfied with the Switch's current power level. ...
