  1. In the US, the game is scarce in stores, unavailable for online purchase at major retailers, and going for twice its list price on Amazon. I was in Target just a few weeks and thought about picking this up when I saw it.

  3. Just saw the news about the cloud save situation with Animal Crossing. I have to ask: Why is Nintendo so bad at online? No other company has the problems with online they do.
  4. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-the-witcher-3-switch-tech-analysis Docked: 720p is the highest we've seen the game render at while docked, dropping to 960x540 in our tests at lowest, seen while panning past the city in Toussaint. Portable: Handheld play works the same way as docked - a dynamic pixel count that adjusts based on load. Here Switch uses 960x540 as the top number, but drops steeply where it needs to. Pick a busy street in Novigrad for example, and the lowest reading comes in at just 810x456 NPCs are drawn at half frame rate at distance: their draw distance is compromised on Switch, but the rendering range on NPCs is generous enough to cram everyone in. The only snag is that the frame-rate on characters is halved towards the distance. Pop in issues: Beyond the inevitable blurriness, there are further downsides. The first is pop-in; often it's well-handled, but Switch has limits in how quickly it can draw everything in. The big trouble spot is cut-scenes; fast camera cuts overwhelm the system, and the way geometry flickers in and out can be pretty glaring. Detail-rich areas such as Novigrad can also push the streaming systems hard, resulting in pop-in that varies on repeat tests. Textures, filtering and sound quality also take a hit: The Witcher 3's drive for compression also has an impact beyond FMV quality. Textures and sound also take a hit. Texture assets and filtering are of a notably lower quality, where a form of trilinear filtering is used which adds to the generally blurry look Foliage density compared to PS4: There are few surprises in terms of console comparisons. Beyond the resolution drop, shadows, textures, and LODs are altered. Panning around the outskirts of Novigrad, foliage density is pruned back significantly. It's all reined in, creating a generally less filled out world - at a distance anyway - on Switch. It's amazing what's achieved on a smaller, less powerful system, but the trade-off to make it happen can't be overlooked. Docked performance: And while there are some notable dips, the bulk of the time in areas like Velen - at least outside towns - delivers a mostly solid 30fps. Docked play is solid, but dense areas like Novigrad will see performance drop to something closer to 20fps. Portable performance: Portable play is similar, but not quite as robust overall. Once again, we're looking at 30fps, but when taxed in stress points it'll go into the 20s ArsTechnica -- “The Switcher” is real: Witcher 3 on Switch is a blurry, tolerable compromise tl;dr: If you're looking for a mobile version of TW3, this is actually fantastic as it plays at a pretty stable 30fps and works. If you have any other option, it's pointless at docked because it'll look blurry, messy and antiquated.
  5. The first new Animal Crossing game on consoles in several years is almost here, and Nintendo is rolling out a special edition of its Switch to mark the occasion. This $300 Switch will arrive on March 13th, a week before the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It's covered in pastel colors, with two-toned Joy-Cons and a white dock that has some of the game's characters painted on it. The only thing it doesn't come with is the game itself -- that you'll have to buy separately. It's available for pre-order at Best Buy if you're already throwing your money at the screen, or you can just buy the game by itself and play it on a normal Switch -- your choice. On the other hand, if you can't get enough but just don't need another console, Nintendo is releasing themed "Aloha Edition" carrying case and screen protector packages on the 13th for both the Switch and Switch Lite. The real good news, though, is that after a slew of videogame delays -- that included Animal Crossing slipping from its planned launch date last fall -- it looks like this one is just about ready to go on March 20th.

  6. Hello to the dozen of us left... Anyways since the 3DS has cooled off a lot for most I though I would jump start the community thread again like we use to have on the handheld boards for those of us who wish to talk about 3DS stuff that might not warrant a full topic of it's own. There is still some decent life left in the 3DS with still a few notable titles on the way (Luigi's Mansion, Etrian Odyssey Nexus and Persona Q2). @GameDadGrant @CastlevaniaNut18 So anyways to kick off the thread, I would like to celebrate with showing off my 37th 3DS/1st n2DS.... It's amazing to look at in person. I was talking to GameDadGrant over PM about it since he also got one and we use to talk about n2ds LE in the old thread. Normally I don't open these but I couldn't help my self with this one.
  7. NekoNyan has confirmed that they're localizing Fureraba: Friend to Lover for the Switch in the West. No word on release date at this time. SOURCE

  9. https://www.polygon.com/2020/1/14/21065249/smash-bros-ultimate-dlc-fighter-january-masahiro-sakurai-nintendo-switch I'm guessing we'll get news about the next season pass worth of DLC coming this year. 35 minutes of Smash sounds like it should be more than just the unveiling of a single character.

  12. I really want to get into this game. It's so silly that it cracks me up. However, I've had two crashes and having to re-peek in windows is very annoying. Mainly because every window you peek in requires a loading screen and you get bonus points for looking in each window.
