Just got back from Okinawa, picked this up while I was there:



I find it rather amusing that for how frequently people bitch about Capcom and Square Enix not supporting the Switch, they are among the most prolific publishers on the system to this point. There's only six SE games on our chart, mostly because many of their releases are Japan only, Nine titles on our list from Capcom. Seven if you combine the two Mega Man collections into one.

Honestly Square Enix deserves a lot of shit for only allowing 2 Final Fantasy songs in Smash.

Hi there, fellows. Has anyone here played Salt and Sanctuary, Furi and (or) Dead Cells on Switch? I really wanted some impressions because I will eventually get all those games and the Switch would be my go to place for that kind of thing, but since action games need reliable performance to be more enjoyable, I was wondering if it wouldn't be better to get one or some of those on my PC. A guy's review, for instance, made me give up from getting Slain: Back from Hell on Switch because the framerate seems to be very unstable in the systems version. Heard similar things on Metascore user reviews for Furi. Any thoughts? 

My physical copy of Dead Cells should arrive tomorrow or on Wednesday. The developers have admitted that the game drops into the 40-50 fps range, but not how frequently it happens; they've also promised a patch in case there are many complaints, but said patch wouldn't arrive before November. Players have claimed that the game can drop into the 20-30 fps range, but exaggeration is common on the internet. Of course framerate drops correlate with which weapons are used, because some of them have more demanding special effects. Locations also play a part.

I'll be able to tell you about my personal experience in a few days. I expect the game to run fine most of the time and most framerate drops to be bearable, i.e. without a significant negative effect on controls and gameplay.

That's great, Rol. Thank you very much for the post. Look forward to your impressions.

The issue will still remain when games that don't have a clear reason to not be on the Switch aren't on it, and Japanese games are more targeted for this concern. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Just bought The Walking Dead: The Final Season and beat the first episode. I could have sworn I read that the Switch version was coming at a later date so I was shocked when I saw it on the eShop. Can’t wait for the next episode!

Oh no, don't make me remember GotG Telltale was supposed to be a thing on the Switch. It's been like a year since they announced it and still no word on a release date or even window, this just sucks.

Okami HD
Dead Cells
Mega Man X Legacy collection
Crash
Octopath
Fortnite
Hollow Knight
Fallout Shelter
Battle Chasers: Nightwar



Okay, I've bought this month four games:

You know it deserves the GOTY.
