Docked DYNAMIC 720p and handheld 504p.πŸ˜₯ The future is ripe for the Switch.

"Why pay more for more when you can pay more for less."

The PS5 dominates with load times with its 0.29 seconds advantage. That super fast ultra megalith better than PC SSDs is truly paying off.😁

So... uh... what are the chances we get a Wii U version of BotW2? 😞

That's the only way Nintendo fans will be able to save BotW2 from Nintendo.

When i am in the handheld mode, i simply don't notice. I think it looks very sharp. The 30fps performance is also fine because i am not a competitive gamer that needs my 240fps. The Switch did not sell over 80 million systems for no reason. People love it. Our Animal Crossing sold much more than your exclusive games, which means its superiors to your offerings

I have it on Xbox, but it's the kind of game that would also be fun to play on the go.

Thanks to Nintendo fans there is a perfect version of BotW that runs at 4K/60 with mod support. It's even got damn ray tracing support. C'mon!

The Switch version is fine. It's just fine. It has some bad performance issues in certain areas. ....and looots and lots of jaggies. I get it. It's basically a triumph of engineering that it runs as well as it does on the Switch.

Yes. I don't have 'main' and 'secondary' systems, but I buy a lot of multiplat games on Switch because I value portability over resolution and performance generally.

No, there can definitely not be people who game in a different way than you. Absolutely impossible, we're all alike.

Yes we all know about the PC emulation.

But your solution for it to run better is to play it on WiiU? Am I missing something here or do you not know the Switch is superior?

Oh my bad. Yeah that's the Wii U version that has been modded, not the Switch.

I was kind of joking tho, I know they won't release a Wii U version. πŸ™

I checked the demo out on PC and it looked like a sharper, more beautiful version of BOTW and it had the colors shine with HDR.

I tried the demo on Switch and it looked like a blurry mess.

I don't need to say I ended up buying the visually pleasing version in the end.

I mean, yeah obviously they're not releasing a WiiU version. They stopped producing the console before the Switch even launched!

Also I'm pretty sure the Switch version can be modded although the WiiU one was probably first.

I also love the convenience of a portable option, and would gladly swap out some pixels and frames for this.

Question for our fellow sheep. Do you calibrate your eyes before playing a Switch game in 2021? πŸ™ƒIts also funny to me how BotW, a WiiU port has maxed out the Switch on launch day, and ever since, its going downhill. I poop on Sony engineers, but Nintendo really is in a league of their own.

Firstly, its not "some pixels", its a shitload of pixels. Its like using a 2005 phone and compare its screen to a phone from 2021. Massive difference.

Secondly, "swapping some frames" means you're playing below 30fps. How does a sane person chooses ANYTHING over stable frames? You gotta be drunk to take below 30fps gaming on the go instead of 60fps on a tv/monitor. Your on the go experience is completely destroyed with poor IQ and unbearable frames.

Call of Duty black ops was 960x544 (PS3), that was the worst one off the top of my head, I don't think anything went down under 500, so yeah even PS3 games performed better compared to that nonsense. This is almost all the way down to standard definition resolution. WTF year is this.

The only things you can legitimately compare Switch to are Vita and 3DS.

Exactly, it goes 504 for handheld mode.. not the TV. The screen is smaller than a tablet, which is why it is less noticeable. Might have a point if it was blown up on a 60 inch TV at 504p lmao

There's a special sheep on here who loves to shit on the resolution of XB1/PS4 who when you mention the Switch says, but, but portable, not even he could defend this.

Before upgrading my computer, I was playing Forza Horizon 3 on low settings at about 20fps and having a blast. Some people just have a higher tolerance for certain thing than other people do.

Don't get me wrong, it's better now that I can run it at 60fps on High settings, but good gameplay is good gameplay even when blurry.

@Pedro: it's also sitting at 97 aggregate... So unless you're rdr2, it's pretty widely considered the apex of the generation.

Gameplay always bests graphics. Every time. Undefeated.

You seem to be confusing opinions to facts and it is kind of odd that you are using metacritic as if it makes your erroneous claim less false or less of your opinion. Soon you will try to use sales.

In a perfect world, I wouldnt have to compromise, and yes my first choice is on my PC. But I like to always be gaming on something while I hang out with my friends or watch TV. No matter how good the xcloud gets or steam link... they all are too clunky still. The Switch experience is just so much easier and quicker to get in and out of games than any other portable device out there.

We are getting full blown games with all the content from their base format in a portable package. The games look and run better than any handheld we had up till now. I understand the limitations and I am willing to put up with it for the overall Switch experience.

For the record... this is what portable ports used to look like. We've come a long way....

@Pedro: lol... Are you saying there is no identifiable data point to measure quality gaming experiences? You are suggesting that refering to a factual statement like, "botw is the highest rated game of generation" as invalid? Why deny what is plain to see?

I'm not denying anyone's opinion. I think plenty of highly received games are rubbish, but your comment was...

"BOTW was better than every single game for YOU"

I answered with the statement that clearly I am not the only one considering its aggregate score. I answered with a factual statement. You just spouted system wars jibberish about sales and metacritic... How insecure.

Oh I think plenty of people are concerned about how BotW2 will run on Switch. The amount of effort people put into making BotW run well is proof enough.

Some people can't or won't acknowledge Nintendo's flaws, so we need to complain loudly about all the things that weren't good about BotW in their stead. Here goes (if you played BotW on Switch, feel free not to read, you know all this stuff already).

  • Performance sucks and the frame rate tanks in certain areas and combat scenarios. The Lost Woods are awful, the frame rate chugs sooo hard I just avoid going there. If you are going to make a game for a tablet, then don't make an area like that. It's not good. There's just no way to avoid this for a sequel as they already pushed BotW past the limit of the hardware. It sucks.
  • Shrines were repetitive; visuals and enemies are the same across all of them
  • Texture pop-in everywhere, right in front of your face, all the time everywhere

And those are just the facts, I haven't even started talking about my opinions yet.

  • Music was lacking (except for Kass, he's cool)
  • Climbing need improvement. Give link some petons for when it rains or something. Who climbs a flat rock face with no equipment? Rain just makes climbing slow, not more challenging.
  • Classic Zelda items were removed in favor of the front-loaded sheikah slate abilities. There is a balance that Nintendo just didn't find and I hope they address this in the sequel.
  • Dungeons were lame overall. Maybe this should be in the facts section.
  • Food cooking was a good addition, but it's implemented in such a tedious way.
  • Link needs a voice if he's going to interact with people in cutscenes and not look like a psychopath.
  • Weapon durability system was fine, if a little aggressive when it comes to real actual metal swords.

I could say even more good things about the game, but I don't think it's as important as saying the bad things. BotW may be a very highly rated game, but it has tons of issues and flaws. I'd even go as far as to say it's overrated and the people who reviewed it got a little too excited about a new Zelda game.

I say all this because I really did enjoy the game. I played through it twice, once on master mode. I played it so much that I can't help but critique it, as any real Nintendo supporter would.
