Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

The big thing is the full confirmation that is the Special edition pared down for the Switch rather than the original version pared up. Just the way it should be.

Looks like a good port. Too bad I'm not a fan of Skyrim.
I hope Dark Souls will eventually release. That would be a day 1 purchase for me as soon as I get the Switch.

watched the video, settled any worries I had knocking about... have it downloading now.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games?

Some areas look quite a lot worse, while others are surprising close. Obviously the PS4 version itself isn't all it should be (it presents little in the way of upgrades over the X1 version), but it's a good showing for the Switch. My only major worry was frame-rate, and that appears to be a non-issue.

Very impressive, wish we had minor mod support (carry weight, rich merchants and such) but you cant have everything.  

Thank you Bathesda.

It looks really good. I may pick it up for the holydays, after I find a decent enough SD card for the Switch.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Finally, a solid frame rate for this game. I had it on the PS3 (worst version), so the Switch version is welcome in my eyes. Given the fact that this is basically the Special Edition on PS4 I skipped out on and it has been over 3 years since I last played the game, I figure it is worth another hurah on the Switch.

So... this is a port worth buying, right? Good to know that people will be able to play a good Skyrim port on the go.
