It's surreal how buddy buddy Nintendo and Bethesda are right now.

For all intents and purposes, Skyrim is Nintendo's Black Friday title, and now we're getting Doom (this year!) and Wolfenstein?

Head scratching, in the best possible way.

I'm seriously considering waiting on Wolfenstein now. I've never played Doom either so this version will be my first time. OMG Nintendo my wallet can't take this!

id Tech 6 is built to scale and optimize across a wide assortment of hardware configurations, including dynamic resolution scaling to maintain framerate. I fully expect this implemented with the Switch builds, along with hits to texture quality for reasonable storage space and further offset performance hits. If there's one major fault to id Tech 6, it's the insane drive space required because of (I think) mega textures.

They're great scores for Switch owners who want portable shootbang. I honestly can't imagine playing DOOM with anything less than a mouse and keyboard, but having it on the go will be a boon. I'm more impressed with Wolfenstein II though. It might be arriving vaguely late, but unlike Skyrim and DOOM it's the most recent addition to the franchise. It demonstrates legitimate forward thinking from Bethesda.

I'm not surprised Dishonored 2 wasn't shown, nor expect it really. Given the limited performance headroom of the Switch, DOOM/Wolf make sense thanks to id Tech 6's incredible optimization. As much as I love Dishonored 2, that game had serious performance issues and its use of a modified id Tech 5 was nowhere near as ideal as id Tech 6.

I still can't believe I'm going to have portable Doom. I've already been loving my Switch, but if it keeps this up I could see it overtaking the PS4 as my preferred platform.

Would they lower texture quality? Look at the textures in the announcement trailer for your answer. It's already been done.

Yeah seriously fuck Capcom and their asinine business decisions. Bethesda is like the first big third party publisher who seems to get that the self fulfilling prophecy of third party stuff not selling on Switch is actually nonexistent if you get some damn games on there that aren't 3 years old.
Let's hope they can optimize well enough.

I'd reckon

- Low textures
- 30 fps
- 720p portable, 1080p docked
- Long loading times (which affected ps4/xbone as well)

But as long as it maintains stable performance its gonna be a very fun portable title.

I'd be fine with this tbh though I'm really hoping for 60 fps. Portable Doom will be amazing as long as it's a solid port

Yeah I think 60fps is a must for DOOM, but they might not be able to swing it.

I'd reckon smaller stages too and fewer monsters onscreen at once. Reduced geometry for sure - I'd be shocked if they can maintain the same geometry but who knows.

What do you mean wrong? It's definitely weird to see Doomguy grappling a demon with a shotgun in his other arm or B.J. standing atop a pile of SS helmets with a Switch logo up top, but it's not wrong imo.

Even if I'm hoping for 60, the motion blur on Doom is great, so 30 shouldn't look that bad.
