I am thinking the same thing. I love Kirby games, but this forces me to sadly pass. With the money I'm saving, now can double dip for one of the best platformers around!

If the port is a good one, I'm buying it! Given Blizzard's attention to detail, I think it will and it is that kind of game that makes absolute sense to come to the the platform.

The Switch is like a big money-eating worm.I refuse to buy certain games on Steam - which by the way come way cheaper - cause I somehow see them as a better fit on Switch.I know I'll get to play them there,relaxed in bed or a similar situation,whereas if on PC I wouldn't put the effort needed.

Doom on Nintendo Switch updated with motion controls

geox30

@mega-gazz
It goes without saying that the Switch is not as powerful as a PS4 or a PC. If it was a home console only, with the same capabilities, we wouldn't be having the same conversation. I would not have double dipped to play a game I already own on another system, being superior technically in addition.

The portability is the deciding factor here. It's not for you, ok, but for many of us, as system sales indicate, it sure is. And then, there are families or individuals who are not in a position to own multiple systems, or Nintendo only gamers who missed many of these games.

To summarize, given the hardware and its target audience, Doom on Switch is amazing!

Most of us do. I enjoy how a game looks, I love my 144hz Gsync monitor and playing the latest games on Ultra settings. But all those cool things somehow come second in this little machine. They managed to squeeze this behemoth of a game into that much space and you take it with you. What's not to love? Imagine showing this to your self as a kid. Your tiny mind would explode!

Each to their own. I played it on a i7 4770k, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM PC and had a blast. Then played it on Switch and also had a blast. Significant sacrifices had to be made, but not to a degree that made the game ugly or unplayable imo.

Just like Splatoon 2, I find split joy cons to be the most convenient way to play. It might not work for everyone, but having options is a good thing, surely.

Just tried it. I had Doom on hold for a while, cause of other games and a point where it had given me a hard time. Motion controls gave me just the precision I needed to get past that! Graphics look better as well, can't tell for sure though. Well done improving an already great game!

Edit: motion controls work in addition to regular stick aiming. When on, you can use one or the other, or both. They are very well implemented and can really improve gameplay. Personally, I use the sticks as before and fine tune my aim when needed, using motion.

I'd say easier than Super Meat Boy, tougher than Shovel Knight. But each screen marks a checkpoint, so you don't have to go through multiple parts once you die. Also, the repetition teaches you to play better, kind of like Dark Souls. Get it, you won't regret it!

The year in playing together

This has been the year of controversy in gaming. On one hand, we got the infectious attempts of endless monetization in lots of AAA games and on the other, we got great single player experiences like Horizon Zero Dawn, BotW, Wolfenstein II, the Renaissance of Nintendo and many brilliant, bold indie gems. I can only hope that the industry will be wise enough to judge as to what direction it should take in these crossroads.

My only issue with the game on the Switch is that I am used to the Xbox One Elite controller with the back pedals assigned for certain actions in the game. I don't mind the lower graphics quality, as the gameplay is intact. It's just a matter of convenience.

I doubt Dice has any power to stop this from happening. I am sure many developers would be face-palming a lot during development but they are EA employees after all. Disney has the real power and they have probably seen the damage caused by the shit storm to their golden goose one month before the release of the new movie.

I will use your cinema example to make a parallel to what EA is doing here. Every one is paying the entry ticket to see the movie. You pay some extra money to get in the cinema first, even if you arrive there last. You pay some more to buy a box with a random reward that could be a higher and more comfortable chair, even if that gets in the way of the basic ticket buyers. And every one has to watch the same scenes multiple times for the privilege of enjoying the end!

AAA game development is expensive. Fact. Is it that expensive that cannot be sustained by not using season passes, microtransactions and things like that on top of a full price, when a game is projected to sell upwards of 5 million copies? I can't say, but I don't think so. State some evidence if you are that knowledgeable, or don't use this assumption as a fact. And if that is true then it is their obligation to find a new business model that can be sustainable by them and desirable and affordable by consumers.

If a multiplatform AAA game with the big name of Star Wars coming in a month before the new Star Wars movie needs microtransactions on top of a full price to be profitable, we are in deep shit and should make fishing or something as our hobby. If this was the truth, wouldn't you think they would make a case for it and get more sympathy, instead of trying to justify microtransactions as a way of "being a fun addition, being there for player choice" and other BS like that?

So, according to your logic, every developer that doesn't use microtransactions in their games should go out of business sooner rather than later. EA and their likes could use guys like you!
