    Capcom just released a game on Nintendo Switch on a 16 GB Game Cart for $30 MSRP

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 May 2019

    I haven't been following gaming recently so apologies if I'm out of touch but how are Nintendo rom sizes calculated purely by saying they will be the same size as the download up to the nearest cartridge size or is there some sort of site that lists actual rom sizes? I had a quick google but couldn't find such a site. For some of the older formats the download size was larger than the rom...

    Reggie on why Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't on Switch

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 December 2018

    Even if the game was cut to shreds to work on the Switch the resulting port would be so poor in comparison to PS4/Xbone that no one would want it and it would do damage to the Switch as a viable platform. Much better to keep to games that can achieve pretty much all the essential ingredients and benefit from portability. Such open world games have so much background processing to simulate the...

    PS3 to PS4 graphical leap

    in Sony Discussion on 13 June 2018

    I'm perfectly happy with ps3 graphics, yes ps4 looks better especially when you are trying to do realistic graphics but I think the ps3 gets the job done quite well. The PS4 always had a big jump in graphic power it was the cpu power that was quite a low jump from ps3 infact with all the cell processor's working efficiently it actually has more computing power than ps4 if you don't factor in the...

    Team Sonic Racing gameplay footage

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 June 2018

    I loved Sonic Racing Transformed especially due to the nostalgia of the course settings. This looks very similar but the course shown while attractive doesn't look very inspired. I guess I'll need to see reviews to see what new gameplay ideas and courses this brings to the table. It looks a bit uninspired at the moment to be honest. First game I bought for my wii u....

    Which of these dormant Nintendo series would you most like to see rebooted?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 May 2018

    Voted for waverace. So many great games on the N64, something about the analogue controller feeling really precise and the splash of the waves, sounds of the dolphins etc. Incredible aquatic atmosphere. I'd like to see that done even better today. ...

    Uh oh... Switch can now run backups via CFW.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 May 2018

    It might increase hardware sales of the Switch and Nintendo makes very good profits on hardware compared to Sony and Microsoft and perhaps those who buy a Switch to mainly use pirate games will buy the occasional retail title. Besides ongoing with the next revision the problem will likely be sorted with a new custom version of Tegra without this exploit so future consoles may be ok. I must admit...

    Prediction: Labo is going to flop

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 May 2018

    Don't see why people are putting numbers to this. It's a commercial success if they make a profit and its just some cardboard and a low capacity games cartridge. It could cost $4 to produce and sell to wholesale at $30 or more even if the sell through was only 60% of what was made it could still be hugely profitable with the final stock being discounted. Cardboard is incredibly cheap to produce....

    Labo is a huge ripoff and a waste of a great concept (so far)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 May 2018

    If Nintendo had made the apps included worth using for 10s of hours then surely that would be to the detriment of the light duty cardboard used? The cardboard would wear out quickly and people would complain they couldn't use the apps anymore.  I suspect the apps were designed to be a short lived experience for that reason. They could have used corrugated plastic card instead of normal...

    Theory/Prediction: Sony is about to reveal a Portable PS4

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 May 2018

    I've written previously I believe a new portable playstation system and PS5 could be incoming and would compliment each other especially if the portable system doubles up as the VR headset for the PS5. The portable won't be PS4 power though, it would likely be in the same ballpark for CPU performance but GPU performance could be sub 800 gflops quite easily. Lower quality graphic assets and lower...

    DF: Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze - Switch vs Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 April 2018

    curl-6 said: bonzobanana said:  I thought their was at least some elements to the wii u that can beat the Switch in portable mode. The higher memory bandwidth of the 32MB of edram, higher gflops of the gpu and the simple fact the Switch relies on heavier compression due to lack of storage plus needs to consider battery runtime which often motivates the developer to run at...

    Skyrim feels so dated now.

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 April 2018

    Absolutely adore Skyrim, dread to think how many hundreds of hours I've put into it. Mods, VR, different versions. I seem to need a first person viewpoint to feel immersed in game worlds and love the many options and large area to explore. Didn't like Morrowind or Oblivion to be honest lost interest pretty quickly. Love the Fallout games and Skyrim is the only Elder Scrolls game I can say I have...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 April 2018

    Miyamotoo said: DonFerrari said: So all new games on Switch should cost more than on PS4 and X1 since they get are only console mode. And the cross purchase that you can do on PS4+PSVita and Play Anywhere for X1+PC should cost over 100 USD per your logic right? And it is BS to defend Nintendo looking at ports as brand new games when they aren't, and for the case in point it's a...

    AMD fights back the NVIDIA "#1 Gaming Platform" claim.

    in General Discussion on 24 April 2018

    You can make the case for Nvidia being better but the reality is what with consoles, APU's in the PCs and dedicated Radeon GPU's surely AMD is far more significant in gaming. You could make the case for  integrated Intel GPU's in PCs but I think typically that would be a sign of a PC not being used for gaming. I guess though with many people playing most on their mobile phones you should...

    in General Discussion on 18 April 2018

    I see vegans as a higher form of humanity who do it for moral reasons (sadly I'm not quite on that level myself) but a balanced diet getting nutrients from many different foods is the way to go. You can healthily be vegan because that encompasses a lot of different foods but just meat surely won't ever work. Lots of non meat products have proteins. When you think about it our bodies create...

    Bethesda discusses about Switch, Possibility of bringing Ports, Exclusives and Release Timing

    Miyamotoo said: bonzobanana said: Can't agree with that. Truly amazing game with so much going on. Hugely ambitious. Complicated engine maybe but garbage certainly not.  Many games have limited options, limited features, almost on rails where you can go and make no attempt to simulate a real world with physics and weather, in fact often have simplistic unrealistic often...

The scope of the world, the AI, the underlying systems and to a degree the graphics were, in fact, pretty advanced for the time (Skyrim).

    Bethesda discusses about Switch, Possibility of bringing Ports, Exclusives and Release Timing

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 April 2018

    Fallout 4 is an amazing game which was hugely ambitious in all the stuff you can do and see no reason why it can't come to the Switch with a few compromises. You see PC gamers making the effort to mod it to run on low level hardware. I think 2GB memory and a gpu of about 300 gflops was achieved. It looked poor but the frame rate was 20-30. I properly optimised version designed to run on weaker...

    One week until the Switch passes the Vita

    in Sales Discussion on 11 April 2018

    Still have 2 ps vita's, one I bought cheap that has a faulty cartridge bay that is setup for my US psn account and another I've had for a longer time. Both the original model with the glorious OLED displays. Still use for remote play and psn plus still provides 1-2 games for Vita per month. Super cheap portable gaming. The only issue I have is one has a 4GB card and the other 8GB so I often...
