Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Outer Worlds announced for Switch

Going to wait for some reviews on this. Fallout: New Vegas was kind of a mess with a lot of badly thought-out "RPG systems" that took away player freedom. It was like they shoehorned in everything they could think of without regard to how well it worked. Hopefully, this will be more refined and intelligent.

There's a thing called the Panasonic Q which was a GC with the ability to play DVDs. It sold much worse than the Xbox in Japan.

By the way, you are acting oddly forgiving for the Xbox. In your first post you mentioned Xbox third party exclusives and then pointed out that they weren't exclusives because they were ported from the PC. In the recent post you excuse the Xbox's lack of games with its low sales, but apparently that didn't matter for the GC. Instead you try to put the blame for low GC sales on its storage medium. You've hung out too much in PS-centric forums if you believe that the storage medium has that much importance. It's not an uncommon belief; after all, the vast majority believes that the Nintendo 64 would have gotten Final Fantasy VII if it had used CDs as storage medium, but the reality is that Sony paid off Squaresoft and that would have happened regardless of the storage medium that the Nintendo 64 used.

$377 dollars for a Panasonic Q though. 

Yeah my bad. Those weren't Xbox exclusives. No excuse for lack of games on Xbox. Just an explanation. OG Xbox wasn't a very good system. Lack of games and all that. 

Low sales cause lack of games, and vice versa. Never been to a Sony-Only forums. Been a Nintendo fan since the N64 and only got a PS2 in late 2005. 

Sony paid off Squaresoft? Source? 



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

I think Obsidian has learned since then. Now, if only the Switch version would come complete on cart, and not be a Half-Cart Half-Download title.

Seems promising! I'll be supporting this title on Switch day 1!

Maybe.  Only recent game of theirs that I've played is Pillars of Eternity, which was relatively generic.  I can barely remember it and haven't bothered with the second game.  What I remember about it most was that it was very unintuitive and rough.

So many great games. So little time. I'm sure I will have to check this game out some time, but definitely not this year.



Was so confused why this didn't look like what Jacksepticeye was playing, turns out that was called Outer Wilds, now I found another game to keep an eye out for.



             

Nintendo Switch FC: SW-6340-7643-4233 aka Renji

Steam: Lee Roid

Game looks great, day one for me. Might get on X1X however i am hoping for a solid MP with cross play.

Damn! Switch has the best 3rd party support since GameCube!

Agreed, I often see people say 3rd party support was bad on GameCube, I don't understand why. IMO it got the best third party support of any Nintendo Home Consoles, post PlayStation anyway.

Probably because the games didn't sell back then. Hence why some publishers preferred to pay the fees for breach of contract than to let their games linger on the Gamecube (like Resident Evil 4, for instance).

However, we have proofs that the games do sell well this time around, even with Nintendos own IP still taking the biggest part of the cake.

Microsoft does it again? They could of locked this for Xbox One/PS4/PC? but , let the switch get a port they could of said no ?

Development of this port possibly started before the takeover from Microsoft.

But yeah, it start really looking like if Microsoft considers the Nintendo Switch as their Handheld

I would consider New Vegas as the only playable Fallout game under Bethesda. 3,4,76 just ain't Fallout. Or much of an RPG, for that matter.

I don't know if you played the previous Fallout titles (1+2, most notably), but if you did, then you would know that New Vegas was more like a return to sources, literally so even: The Devs were also the people who made Fallout 1+2 in the first place. They mostly just put things from those games back in that Bethesda cut out in 3.

I don't think they could have, actually. IIRC 2K own the IP, or at the very least they definitely own the publishing rights. So the platforms it releases on should be up to them and nothing to do with Microsoft, especially with the port being developed by a 3rd party dev too.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
