Then there's the other way FIFA influences youngsters. I've heard tales from the guy at the petrol station talking about young kids stealing (then) Microsoft points (which was funny, i thought they had to be activated at the till, perhaps they never got their points) to spend on FUT. That and the borderline gambling system that EA gets to reset every year to scrape in more hard earned cash from responsible adults and kids alike. Not to mention questionable YouTubers with their own Fifa gambling sites.
I can't agree with any of that when it comes to Dragon Age: Inquisition. The story is incredibly badly-paced in that game, regularly forcing you into boring, MMO-esque side quests in order to gather the 'Power' required to unlock the next story mission. The story itself is also rather bland and forgettable (with a wet fart of an ending), but that's another matter. And whilst it's subjective, I hated pretty much every character in that game. In fact, the only tolerable ones were holdovers from previous games, such as Varric and Morrigan.
This gives me hope for improvements after the framerate dips in Zelda.

We aren't deleting any comments - but we are aware of a number of bugs. Some people can;t post. We have never refused to refund a backer.
and I'd much rather play games at 144fps than at 4K60.
I really don't get that arguement. The idea is you have friends who would bring round controllers to play a 8 player game. No one would spend that amount just to enable 8 players on a game, and you can apply that to any console at launch, PS4 would have cost you £750 to do the same, and X1 over £800...
And don't forget the switch offers two player multiplayer out of the box too! But let's overlook that right?
From the ground up, you're surely looking the best part of £500 if you want to play this in local 8 player mode?
You can hook up to eight different controllers to a single unit, falling short of Saturn Bomberman's high score of ten players but more than enough to fit around a screen.
A 900p launch does not indicate or determine how every forthcoming release on the console will perform.
Some games will perform better and some will perform worse.
The hardware limitations of the console are quite obvious, but guess what I don't care. I bought the console to play Nintendo games, it is the 3rd console to compliment the Pro, XO/Scorpio and PC.
If not caring more about the fantastic gameplay over the resolution/framerate of a launch game makes me a Nintendo fanboy. Then knock yourself out pal.
I am not wrapped up with blinkers on. I am fully aware of the limitations of the console I just don't care about the framerate dips in Zelda - not too difficult to understand. Something you just can't seem to grasp.
God your anti console rhetoric is predictable. November it was the PS4 Pro
As a console/pc gamer I always have a laugh when a pc enthusiast, such as yourself, gets all judgemental and righteous over the cost of console gaming.
Just face it, you've thrown in a hysterically overexaggerated figure to try and justify a point and to get to that figure you needed to add in a load of completely optional extras you don't need. £320 has you playing Zelda within 5 minutes of getting home.
What console is £500+?
And, as for your initial point. I don't really care about the frame dips either. I am enjoying Zelda.
I'm not trying to convince anyone as I don't particularly care if the entire catalogue of the Switch runs at 900p.
Jumping the gun a bit there thinking a cross platform port represents any consoles's capabilities.
For example, MK8D is 1080/60.
Perhaps you could give us winners for the upcoming Cheltenham Festival after you finish with the crystal ball.
My biggest concern with the Switch was how bad Zelda was going to run in portable mode. I never imagined it would have problems running in docked mode.
Switch's ability to decouple from your HDTV, to play wherever you want, is by far and away the most tangible difference between the two versions.
"We'd like to apologise to those customers who have not received their consoles and assure them they will be delivered before midday Saturday 4th March, we are in contact with all affected customers."
Probably be a few months before any new releases start appearing
Far more than just Dragon Age Inquisition in space
EA Sports' FIFA on Nintendo Switch will be the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players
Thingis, Steam is a walled garden, even if the walls are lower than iOS etc. You have to play by their rules if you want into their garden.
So it's a tad hypocritical to complain about the concept of a walled garden.
"We get really frustrated working in walled gardens,".... Valve founder Gabe Newell said "UNLESS IT'S STEAM... Then it's AWESOME!", he went on to add.
VR is the future of gaming. Gabe, someone's already beat you to the reason to get a headset.
My only disappointment comes with the accessory pricing, which i'd still like to see come down a bit.
So when pc master racers say console games cost much more on consoles, they probably don't know that console games bought on a disc are resellable as opposed to the majority of pc games that are bought digitally for 30-ish at launch and the cost, even partial, is never recovered.
For reference, I am not taking sides here, just stating the fact.
There is nothing about Andromeda that screams buy me. And to think BioWare used to be master craftsman when it came to RPGs. Recently been playing Baldurs Gate 2 and Black Isle's Icewinddale Enhanced Edition. So, so good.
Another piece on Switch from Tom Philips that leaves out key pertinent information, namely that this won't be any sort of issue with the physical versions of software most of us will be buying
Just out of interest @George, what price point/software would it take to get you onboard with this?
I reckon £200-£220max. would be the sweet spot for me. Software looks to be the biggest hurdle, though...
Very few first party games.
Tumbleweed (as usual) where there should be third parties..
I like the look of Mario Odyssey, though.
Battlefield 4 (PC)
