    I can't wait for Digital Foundry to review the Switch ports of DOOM and Wolfenstein. It's going to be gold.

    "The textures in DOOM on the Switch are equivalent to the PC on the "low" preset and as you can see here when the engine is under load the games dynamic resolution kicks in dropping the game to a 360p resolution while running @ fifteen frames per second."

    I"m actually really curious as to how Doom and Wolfenstein will run on the platform. Should be interesting.
    High Enough

    If you haven't seen this before you may have questions...

    Yeah I got 3 in the 1st play through. Only on the second one right now but I had fucked up and gotten so strong in the first one that it was a bit too easy after a while. Not easy enough for me to put it on one hit kill mode though XD

    dont worry. the difficulty spikes in the 3rd playthrough. prepare yourself cuz youre gonna see some crazy shit.
    but try not to equip exp chips from now on.

    what level are you? im at level 51.

    p.s.
    the game is fabulous. its the 3rd playthrough when the real story kicks in. 1st and 2nd playthrough is just the prologue to the main story.

    I played Doom last year on PS4.

    If you're going to get third-party support, then it needs to be new games.

    is anyone here a fan of Fire Emblem? I still need to beat Sacred Stones and Radiant Dawn, but I was thinking of skipping to one of the modern games for now to familiarize myself with atleast some of the FE Warriors cast. I'm leaning towards awakening, that shit is going up in price though smh, but I don't wanna buy digital. But I think I will still go for that, Fates right now doesn't seem that appealing.

    I play FE Heroes and everytime I pull a character from Fates, they just seem like a wack character and sometimes got terrible designs like Ryoma. Wtf is going on, hope FE on Switch chills back on that stuff

    Fates: Conquest probably has the best gameplay out of all of the Fire Emblems, but be prepared for an absolutely atrocious story.

    Sacred stones has GOAT Lord Ephraim. Don't skip dis nigga, he's a boss.

    While Fates Conquest has the greatest FE experience(seriously that shit was fucking awesome) I hate the majority of the Fate characters and the story is crap.

    Is Conquest the one that is the harder or more veteran appealing one?

    The fact that Nintendo is even getting these games is enough really in comparison to past 3rd party support. If Bethesda actually gets success frome these ports especially Doom and Wolfenstein then its going to make other western 3rd parties take notice. Gotta take the steps for the 3rd parties to build their confidence before they decide to go all the way in.

    Yep, makes me think GTAV on the switch may actually be a thing.

    no it's for the game plus multiplayer and all the updates.

    I've been hearing from various people on this thread that it was about 100 gigs but doing some research says the game previously was around the 75 gig mark.

    Microsoft store says about 60

    Dunno how true this is now though can't find anything for how large the game in total is currently.

    If you do that, play Awakening first.

    It's really hard to go back to it after playing Conquest.

    I can only confirm the main install files. Windows Installs like to put files in weird places.

    Looks like Mario Odyssey has received visual improvements from the earlier builds showcased.
    59zpebet5rlz.jpg
    Somewhat unsurprising since the earlier playable builds were still a work in progress that had some noticeable frame drops and visual issues relating to draw distance. Still though even back then it looked awesome and now it looks even better.
    Looks like the textures and lighting have been improved and Peach has a new model (her old model was almost certainly a placeholder since Tiara is absent).

    I really do hate Princess Peach. Just one of the most uninteresting, overrated "Icons" in gaming.
    She's just a huge nothing. Whenever you see her on screen you know that your time is about to be wasted. She's going to go "Oh? Oh!" and then a more interesting character is going to come in and do an actual something.

    She was cool in Paper Mario when she was cheating on Mario with that computer, but other than that she's almost always straight trash. She is as close to nothing as something can be and it makes me angry that people actually like her. That they had the balls to waste 3 character slots in Mario Kart 8 on her. My god I'm fucking salty about that lmao

    Think about Nier all day at work
    Start it up, configure settings
    Die once in the prologue
    Die twice in the prologue
    Go to bed

    if you die, its mandatory to find and retrieve your body..or you lose those hella valuable chips man. i fear death in this game because if you die trying to retrieve your body you lose those chips. which hppened to me before. more than once.

    if you dont have or ever played or have no interest in playing the first Nier game....and you wanna play Nier Automata, not its necessary since its not, but i recommend you watch a full playthrough of Nier.
    i recommend the best friends playthrough of it because they talk alot about interesting things regarding it.

    the reason i watched the full playthrough is because i dont own a console. my lst console was the ps2.
    and i wont ever buy a console ever again.
    since Nier isnt on pc. had to watch the playthrough. this playthrough is one of the best ive seen, and og Nier is a great game. fabulous story.
    but watch the full best friends playthrough, 33 eps 1/2 hour each ep. its compelling, engaging. and very entertaining.
    but the reason you should watch...not just to understand wtf is going on in Nier Automata better, but because the dudes talking about the game and all the things that correlates to it and what not.
    you'll see what discussions and deep thoughts it causes.
    for example, they mention how 9/11 terrorist attack inspired the game's writer to write the Nier story.
    there is a connection to Nier and 9/11.
    watch the vids and you'll find out how and why.
    this playthrough is what realy caused me to buy Nier Automata.
    yes i love platinum games...but its the mind blowing story of the first nier that made me thirst for automata.
    watch the playthrough beginning to end and watch the 4 different endings and you'll see things more clearly when you play Automata.
    not necessary but it helps shed more light into the Automata world.
    the 1st Nier has 4 endings. and its mind blowing.

    damn i wish Nier was on pc. but anyway.......the playthrough is the best ive ever seen of any playthrough.

    but the reason why reviewers are calling Automata a masterpiece is because platinum who makes great action, hooked up with Cavia/enix and Yoko Taro when Taro was feeling extremely inspired. Again...9/11 is huge in influence on Nier
    everything came together and made the perfect storm.

    lol. im trying my best not to spoiler.
    i cant stop thinking about Automata's story.

    I might try it later. Unfortunately by the time they released that I had a vitriolic hatred of the game and couldn't stand to see Liam praise it.
