Video by your friendly Digital Foundry on Outer worlds Switch port!

  • Texture Pop ins
  • Asset pop ins
  • Super blurry and bland textures
  • Some world scenery is removed
  • Lower graphics than lowest resolution on PC
  • 20 fps when in town or intense area
  • Ported by Virtuous (bioshock collection, dark souls port)
  • Overall quality is terribad

The usual Switch problems but fans on the system probably don't care and still buys it.

i bet its the most expensive version of them all as well. Nintendo is a ripoff. but again graphics don't matter to handheld users or Nintendo users.

Man, the switch can do better than this. Clearly a bad port.

Witcher 3 even though it’s lower resolution, has textures and models that resemble the original.

That's bad. Agreed - TW3 and DOOM are much better examples of how this can be done

Shhh fanboys take that Amiibo out your butts... Do research before you post.

The developer who handled the port did other ports for the Switch and were successful.

The Witcher 3 is not more demanding than Outer Worlds.

This is the best they can do, stop crying like babies... That fu**ing tablet doesn't have enough power for games, even the Witcher 3 is Vaseline show when you play it on a 55-65" TV on a Switch.

@Grey_Eyed_Elf: Witcher 3 after the patch that lets you remove the anti aliasing is not blurry at all. It was the AA that was causing blur.

TAA needs to die or at least be used very selectively.

I was concerned about this one. It could have used a lot more rework. Maybe even a cel-shaded conversion of the art style. I reckon that'd be ludicrously expensive and time consuming, though.

While I agree that TAA is a nightmare... I do not agree with fixing Witcher 3's switch blur.

That comes from the low resolution muddy textures and low resolution in general.

You go play a game at 720p on a 65" TV with textures that look like stretched gum. No thank you... Even on my PC monitor I can't watch this video without throwing up a little.

Handhelds are great for simple games that don't require a lot of depth.

TAA on pc is fine when you're able to add sharpening with Nvidia freestyle or a reshader profile. But i do agree that its shit on consoles just like FXAA. Also, how the f can anybody play tw3 in like what? 500p without aa? I mean, the jaggies are larger than Geralt's head at that point.

You know the system's standards are as low as it can get when Doom and TW3 is their best ports. Look at this! LOOK AT THIS!!!!! How can anybody waste a video game on this kind of messy visuals AND performance.

It looks pretty rough, but there's supposed to be a day one patch that improves things. I think I'll still pick it up at some point, it was compared to Borderlands 2 on the Vita and I loved that.

@hardwenzen: TAA is rarely fine, pc has nothing to do with it other than forcing native 4k to mitigate blur.

Actually the best TAA I’ve seen is on console with ratchet and clank and shadow of the colossus temporal injection method. Other than that, titan fall 2 had a good method. But it’s rare.

I played the switch port of Witcher 3 because it’s the only physically complete version ; all dlc on the cart. On a 55 inch or 49inch tv, with AA off, it did not look bad at all, and certainly looked like proper Witcher 3 even with lower detail.

Outer worlds looks like they just took a chainsaw to it, not that it looked good to begin with.

I thought Outer Worlds Switch version was already out long ago. In any case, my Switch is nothing but for exclusive games and nothing for 3rd-party titles.

Nothing of value was lost :)

Never considered the doom port impressive though. It’s a lot easier to halve the frame rate for a port.

Witcher took an open world 30fps Game on a much more powerful cpu with more memory and kept it at 30fps on switch.

@chozofication: With sharpening added, taa is not blurry at all, and hides the jaggies pretty well, nor is it too demanding either.

I don't know how your eyes survived the Switcher on a 55inch tv. I would never do that to my eyes, its just a very mean thing to do.

@hardwenzen: sharpening is disgusting, completely ruins art.

The fact that TAA blurs an image so bad you have to add sharpening says more about how bad it is.

Jaggies/shimmering are bad as well. Sharpening doesn't ruin anything. Infact, it looks better with it.

Unfortunate but it is what it is. Still love my Switch and find it to be a great system with a lot of great games for it. Most multiplatform games I’d just be happy enough to stick to the XBox One version anyway.

What is a paid shill cow doing talking about a Nintendo game in the first place?

This just proves that Obsidian isn't half the developer that CDPR is since they can't optimize very well.

Yeah. You just can't cram a foot into every shoe. It's not doing Switch any favors to get these bare minimum ports.

That is only if you load a lot of sharpness, which you don't need to remove blur from fxaa/taa.

Yup. Even DQ XI barely has anything stripped from the PS4 version when it comes to visuals.

Ask fans of the PS2, which had a flawed port of RE4 and Viewtiful Joe, and an outright bad port of Metal Arms.

Outer Worlds doesn't look bad for Switch.

Unlike how the majority of games ported to PS Vita appear to be bland or unplayable (Due to poor framerate and lose controls).

Those two are pretty fucking far from the best Switch ports.

You should at least watch the video, so that you'd know Obsidian didn't do the port. A small thing like that can make you look a lot less dumb.

@Willy105: plus "paid cow shill" has nothing to do with it. Anyone with eyes can see what a trash port it is. The framerate and frametime numbers are right on the screen with the disastrous visuals as a backdrop

Paid cow shill my ass - it's a trash port. And I say this as someone whose favorite console right now is the Switch

That's unfortunate, since the Switch has had a lot of excellent ports lately. Even Xcom 2 works fairly well, which is surprising considering how poorly it runs on other systems.

I guess I'll have to pick it up on the PC. I wouldn't bother buying the PS4 version - it'll be much cworse than the PC version, without the flexibility of the Switch version.

Are you for real? The Switch port is a piss-port of a game and what does the TC has to do with being a Cow? Not to mention, DF vids are always legit and you need to watch the vid cause TC has a strong evidence to the thread. Even I'll shill for Sony at times, but this a crappy port. I'm sorry but that's the truth.

@davillain-: @xantufrog: The OP is a well known Nintendo hater, and a bigtime cow, so when he saw how bad this was he couldn't wait to post it, that's what briguy is talking about.

However briguy is a Sheep and obviously didn't check on who did the port and just spouted nonsense about Obsidian.
