My god. :lol: I'm the furthest thing from a graphics purist imaginable, but at that point why bother? Just put Gwent on the Switch and call it a day.

If I really spent most of my time with the Switch in handheld mode I would consider this but I don't. Also I second in looking forward to Digital Foundry's video on this game on Switch.

540p in Handheld Mode = :sick:

 

 

If DOOM 2016 and Wolfenstein 2 are anything to go by, handheld mode is going to look like dog vomit.

These are from handheld mode while standing still. Once you begin moving it turns into a blurry mess of pixels that barely resemble the game they're trying to portray. JFC, like.. Kudos for trying, but please don't.

They will just not bother.

They should go back to what they used to do in the SNES days and ship it on a cartridge with an extra GPU soldered onto the board. :daydream:

If they  aren't releasing a "Pro" model, then I guess it will go back to the days when Nintendo had shitty 3rd party support.

Maybe E3 2020 they will show a Pro model?

The switch will be fine, with or without 3rd party AAA titles. Its well past its critical consumer market penetration needs and as long as Nintendo keeps offering up great 1st party IPs and Indies keep pumping out surprising and cool new smaller games, the Switch will continue to have a great life.

Is it okay I haven’t played the previous two games yet?

 

Bah, who am I kidding I’ll never play the game. I’ll buy it, play an hour or so, then forget it forever. Just like I did with Breath of the Wild.

@legend was looking forward to this right?

 

The screen res is disappointing, but I still might be forced to purchase it anyway. My hands are tied here!

GWENT is a card game within the Witcher. I believe there is a mobile app you can download that is literally just that card game.

Eh it’s not like they’re getting the lions share of third party stuff now anyway. 

 

A lot of the appeal of the switch is playing older games and indie games on the go, and there’s not going to be any shortage of those any time soon.

Release Tegra 2 edition and carry on as before. There was the report of the two new SKUs going into development.

I hope not. Tegra 2 came out in 2011 :p 

(Switch is using the fifth iteration of Tegra)

In that case, I redact my statement to say 'whichever is the somewhat current Tegra.

The current (the one in the Switch) is the Tegra X and it’s only a bit less powerful than the launch Xbone iirc (when running at full-boar). The next Tegra will likely be based on the current RTX cards and be dubbed the “Tegra RTX”, no clue on when that actually comes out... but, Nintendo could simply play with the current design and up the clock speeds to create a “Switch Pro”. Using the next iteration of Tegra for an updated Switch would be an odd choice, IMO, as that would be better used on a new console altogether considering the huge performance jumps between each Tegra iteration - I’d expect the next Tegra generation to be meeting or exceeding PS4 Pro (possibly XboneX) performance.

It's perfectly fine to skip the first two if you don't have any interest in them. Although, you will be missing out on a few things as certain choices do carry over and somethings will be different depending on what you did in The Witcher 2. However, it's not crucial.
