lol ok. Because when people were saying they Switch wouldn't be getting ports, they meant games like Doom and not games like Red Dead Redemption 2, or Fallout 4, or Assassin's Creed Odyssey. They meant the Switch would literally get no PS4/Xbox ports, and therefore any one game is an exception. Of course. All PS4 games are created equal, and the all push the limits of these consoles equally.

My bad.

And hey if you want to believe the PR because it came from a dev, boy ohh boy, you must be thoroughly, thoroughly impressed with how "the power of the cloud" transformed Xbox One games into something the PS4 could only dream of rivaling.

"There are other games like Battlefield that have dedicated servers, but they haven't gone the same direction that we have with them. We have all of this AI and things flying around in the world; that has obviously let us build a different game than we would have if we'd have gone with player-hosted," Shiring says. "Really, the biggest thing with that is that it has uncapped our designers and let them do things that were previously impossible to do."

...



well fuck.

Yeah sorry, but at this point I don't believe for a second that you actually own a Switch.

Everything you're saying across multiple threads plus your long history of anti-Nintendo sentiment, its clear you're using fake concern as a shield for you to bash the Switch and Nintendo and avoid a moderation.

Proves nothing, you could've borrowed that from a friend, sibling, roommate.

AHHAHAHA! That's just precious.

Yeah I totally borrow hundreds of dollars of video games that I hate and have them ready after midnight on a Tuesday just in case some random on the internet doesn't believe me!

The mental gymnastics must be exhausting!



This thread has gone so far beyond necessary that you guys are breaking the forum text boxes themselves on an argument over how reliable someone's picture of a Switch with 4 Joy-Cons and 14 games is.

Damn.

Damn.

Yeah, I ignored them both as they have this discussion in circles in two threads. Wasting my time because I think something useful new was posted to the thread.

(...) It [Switch] may not hit 100m but at this point nobody should be expecting anything under 80m.

Anything below 100m would require self-sabotage by Nintendo.



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

The topic at hand is long done for (EA is an insignificant publisher, so their lack of support is largely inconsequential), but that doesn't mean that other things that get posted aren't useful.

The thread in its entirety makes a good case study for how potato_hamster treats Nintendo fans and shows large differences in how he treats each individual. The prevalent rudeness stands in contrast to overly polite responses to zorg1000, so what is it that makes zorg such a special Nintendo fan?

curl-6 has a good grasp of the situation in general, but commits a big mistake on a particular premise, namely the assumption that disdain and console ownership are mutually exclusive concepts.

It's almost as if it has literally nothing to do with you guys being Nintendo fans.

Enough trying to derail threads with this crap. You're both going to have to live with the fact that I'm a fan of Nintendo, have been for decades, and buy the products they put out that appeal to me. That's not a matter of your opinion, it's only a matter of mine. Get over it, and move on. This is not something I will discuss further.

What the hell is Spintires: Mudrunner?

Also I was going to say nice collection but now I'm convinced it's not really yours.

It's a great little game that was on PC for years and recently ported to consoles. Pretty simple premise. Pick up logs from the logging station and bring them to the lumber yards until they've gotten enough. But good luck doing it. You will get stuck. You will have to drive your other trucks in to pull the truck out of whatever situation you put it in, and that truck might get stuck trying to unstick your other truck, and then you have to send in another truck. And then you might run out of gas, or damage your truck beyond repair, and it's all brutally fair. Your mistakes will be punished accordingly. Gameplay videos don't do it justice. You really need to play it to get it. I will admit it's pretty niche.

I have about 100 hours into the games in the series so far. I go back and play it regularly. I highly recommend it.
