Switch performance issues update:

Good.

I'm about to boot the game up for the first time now, and, while I am ready to jump ship to that pirated PC copy, I do wish I can enjoy it on the Switch, especially if it means having completed save files and not for whenever I wanna get back into it once it's improved upon. And also portability, of course. Knowing it'll get better eventually makes it easier to take.

Switch Version runs like ass, so I'm gonna add this to my GoG wishlist instead.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

Just played it for half an hour on the Switch... eh, it's playable. I wouldn't mind carrying on with it if I didn't have another choice, I really wouldn't. But I do have another choice, and since I did find myself going "this probably looks a lot better on another platform", PC it'll be - for now, at least.



Just got my backer kit in the mail! Didn't have time to play it before work, but I'm looking forward to playing it tonight! So psyched! I have the Switch version of course, but these guys have been so transparent throughout the whole process and so supportive of the backers and everybody, so I have full faith in them to get the Switch version up to par.

I've got the Switch version and I'm not even mad. How often do you see a company with the integrity to own up to things this quickly and commit to actually getting things right, right away? And being this transparent about their process?

Damage control is a common practice. They knew about the state of their game, but launched it anyway.

Integrity would be something along the lines of "We prioritized other platforms over Switch, so the version for Nintendo's console is nowhere near ready to launch. It will arrive a few months later, but as compensation for the delay the paid DLC will be included at no extra cost for Switch owners."

Releasing a faulty game and then promising to improve it to the state it should have launched in is no reason for gratitude.



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

Fair enough. Perhaps I've let my standards down after I've seen how Bethesda has handled things. And EA. Releasing completely unfinished games and then not fixing them, or promising to fix them and breaking them more, or taking months to add basic content like NPCs, or promising some sort of "roadmap" of content that was basically a plan to finish the game, then not even sticking to that. Meanwhile Bloodstained just has its fair share of bugs, and they're working on it straight away. But I suppose I should wait until they actually fix it before I say anything, and see how long it takes them to at that. As a backer, I got to see the emails they put out about the various problems throughout development, and they would tell us what their plan was to fix it, and usually they'd report back to us with progress. Like when the first trailer came out and people were ripping it a new one because it looked like shit, they screenshotted some of the criticism in the emails, saying, yeah, we see what you've been saying, and agree, we hired these guys to help, we'll get it dealt with, and then a few weeks later they were showing us the screenshots of the improvements they'd made. So I have some faith in these guys built up throughout my process with them as a backer. Unlike some of the other things I've backed, like Yooka Laylee, which I massively regret backing now. Got nothing from Playtonic but empty PR nonsense, and didn't even get my copy of the game.

Update: yeah PC version is a hell of a lot better lol. Comparatively, the game feels sluggish on the Switch - it's not just the framerate, everything feels slower, I was struggling to do mostly anything and just thought that's how the game is. But nah, it's the Switch version all right.

I do hope they fix the performance eventually though, because I'd love to play this on the Switch. But for now, PC will do.

Damn. Bummer. All I have access to is the Switch version. Maybe it's for the best that I couldn't play it today before work. I might just wait a few days and see if there are any quick improvements made. Just to prevent my first impression from being made of the game at its worst.

I mean, that was my first impression too and I wasn't thinking the worst of it until I tried it on something else. Of course although I have "access" to two versions, only one of them is... legal, and stuff. I don't have any moral issues with that since the Switch version is 230% the price of the PC version despite being much inferior, and I paid for it, so I think I'm entitled to feel entitled to play the game decently. Or something.
