I find it strange that it exists. I didn't like the Dark Crystal film too much but maybe the game will be cool?

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.

It's a rather unusual game to announce at E3 of all places, but I suppose that's part of why it was chosen.

I'm glad that they're trying to promote the upcoming Netflix prequel series. The game itself looks okay. The animations are a bit choppy, but it might be good, like how Mario+Rabbids was.

So, Witcher 3. One of the biggest and most graphically intensive games out there. On the Switch. Meanwhile, Namco. Can't even bother to get the newest Tales on the system where it'd be an obvious hit.

A bunch of games are on sale right now for up to 50% off. This includes some first-party titles, such as Tropical Freeze being available for about $40.

Imagine how it will look when BotW 2 is released.

...Either there's a huge catch that I'm missing, or that's an insanely good deal.

Have we seen any gameplay yet? I'd think that they might need to make a few downgrades to get all that to fit on there?

Major framerate drops and loss of graphical fidelity seems to be the cost.

Yeah, I figured as much. The question is how much that would impact the gameplay.

540p handheld 720p docked is the target resolution. I assume both will be dynamic. I assume framerate will be mostly 30 FPS with the occasional drop, but nothing gamebreaking.

Japanese Teeth: Welcome to the world of non-Nintendo Triple A video games, where prices go down the longer a game has been out.

Itíll probably be $80 when it comes out on Switch. Full price, which it should be. But I can get it on PS4 right now for fifty bucks, simply because itís been out a few years.

Oh I'm well aware that prices generally drop (heck, I'm pretty sure I have the game on Steam already, not that my computer can come close to running it). I just wasn't expecting it to come with the physical extras like the map and such; they usually try to milk those more rather than just including it with the base game. And everywhere I've seen it, it's listed for $60, even with the extras.

I'm pretty impressed they can get it running on Switch at all. If reviews for the port are good I'll have to look into it, I've heard nothing but good things about the game itself.

I missed the part where that's my problem.

[up][up] The extra feelies came with the standard edition on the other systems too. CD Projekt Red is nice that way.

Also, eighty Canadian dollars.

I mean, its nice that its on Switch, but its not that great a deal.

The PC version of the GOTY edition drops to the range of 18-25 AUD pretty often nowadays, in fact it's 23~ right now on GOG.

With the Switch release probably being 69 AUD I'm personally not going to buy it on Switch if I decide to play it once I finish the books..

That said, for those who really rely on the portability of the Switch, I'm sure the ability to play the Witcher 3 will be welcomed.

I think the benefits lie more in the fact that Nintendo players who donít own another system will have access to it.
