DF: More Wii U Ports Heading To Switch! Is This A Good Thing?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - DF: More Wii U Ports Heading To Switch! Is This A Good Thing?

It's not good for people like me who owned a Wii U and who have already beaten all those games. Good for those who haven't.

It's a shit handheld. Battery life is absolute garbage. That on top of it being a weak console and you got yourself a system that can do a lot but nothing particularly well. Im a handheld enthusiast. But I cannot recommend something that can barely go further than the Wii U gamepad without a charge. 3-4hrs is fucking sad. The Switch is a decent idea but poorly executed. It'll continue to be a fucking pathetic excuse of a handheld until it can last at least 8hrs without a charge. As for the console part, there are better options. I have my PS4 and PC for games on my TV. I'd only use it as a handheld. But since it fails at even that, it really has no use until they fix the battery. And no, I won't buy a 3rd party battery to make it work the way it was intended. 

God, I hope you didn't buy a 3DS or Vita, then. Most cellphones don't even get that much time if you're actually using them. Who the hell regularly plays eight hours of video games a day period, let alone eight hours away from an outlet?

Using whataboutisms doesn't make a complaint any less valid. And people like me do. When youre constantly taking 8hr flights all the time.

You do realize the battery life is pretty similar to the 3DS right? Lol... The battery life ranges from 3 to 6 hours depending on the game. What handheld ever got at least 8 hours of playtime without a charge? That's completely unrealistic lmao. No Nintendo handheld ever had such a long battery life. 3-6  hours is plenty, I've taken the console with me plenty of times and I've never ran out of charge before I could plug it in somewhere. 

And the PS4 and PC don't play Switch games on your TV, so that point is moot as well. 

Your expectations are completely unrealistic. There's no way Nintendo could cram a battery strong enough into the Nintendo Switch, so that it would last 8 hours... The thing would have to be incredibly big to fit a battery that powerful. 

Weak console? Have you even played any Switch games yet? I doubt it. 

You are basically StarOcean's evil counterpart. Mind you, Star Ocean is evil as well.

All Nintendo handhelds prior to the 3DS had battery life of at least eight hours.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Have you ever even touched a handheld? Unless you started gaming this gen, which sounds like it from this post, then you'd know many have lasted longer than 8. PSP, GBA, GBA SP, GBC, GB could all run 8+ hours easily. If this is unrealistic to you, 1991 is going to blow your mind when the Gameboy comes out. 

I don't play Nintendo games on TV. Well I do, but very very rarely. 

They sell batteries that last 8+ hours for the Switch. I'd know. People here link me to it all the time when I complain about the battery life.

It is weak. That's not even debatable. Same goes for the Wii U. Think that was powerful too?



All I want is Smash. Be a blast to take to a friend's place and play.

The PSP lasted more than eight hours? It lasted four.

I pray that you meant to type DS because it's missing in your list.

But Star, thats kind of the reality of every single new hardware, specially the one that needs a new arquitecture and thus has no BC(like the PS4 and XOne).

I dont think, in the end, is a bad thing, as things stand.From Nintendo, we are getting 2 ports this year.Only two.From third party there are more, but thats because they were silly in not supporting the Switch earlier, for the most part, and the best they can do now is ports.As for indies, they have been excellent so far.A few ports here and there yeah, but many are new games and in a great quantity and quality too.

Personally, being a Wii U owner myself, I dont feel bothered at all with the way they are handling ports now.I even wish they port community heavy games like Mario Maker, which I didnt bought because it was late at the Wii U life and we already knew about the Switch.Or rather, make a Mario Maker 2 that has all the content of the first with new things.

All in all, is a good business decision and a great oportunity for gamers to enjoy great games.

It's bad. And you can try justifying it all you want. But in the end it won't change my opinion of it

Well, fair enough.Dont agree with you, but its your opinion.

DS is among it. And my PSP Go lasts 8hrs. Well, dunno about reg models. My only evidence is my PSP Go lasts an 8hr flight it dies at the end of the flight unfortunately

So you talk about shit handhelds, but you like the PSP Go. This adds a lot more context.
