Don't really want to open a new thread for this, but has anybody here bought Thumper, Wonder Boy or Oceanhorn on Switch? I still need some games for my trip, just curious if there are any performance problems (or other problems).
I tried the Disgaea Demo but I think that game is too Japanese for me.

Got Thumper on the Switch. Game is amazingly smooth (only played handheld). Not too fond of the game itself tho, but I get why it's so beloved.

I'm waiting for sales on all of these except Oceanhorn. I'll buy EVERYTHING.

The controls in the Disgaea Demo felt a bit weird. And it's too intimidating for me.

I've only played it in handheld mode, never tried it on PS4. Runs perfectly smooth and nice though.

It's solid 60fps and native resolution, but It's lacking a few graphical effects: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1376376

I have Wonder Boy on Switch and didn't run into any issues. I still haven't finished it though.

Wonderboy is fantastic and that art style on Switch screen is bloody incredible to look at.

It actually is, but not at the beginning.

Once you've got a shotgun (to kill the phantoms) or some powers and access to the elevator you can pretty much do what you want in almost any order. The glue gun also lets you skip and break all kinds of sequences via the player making shortcuts. You can even kill all important NPC's (or at least most of them, and the game/story changes accordingly).

It's a very breakable game with lots of freedom. Just not in the first 5 hours.

ok, instant chaos and mayham is a bit harder to pull off i'll concede :P

I guess what makes Prey less conductive to chaos vinny is that to pull off chaos you need to know the systems at least a little bit.

Also he needs a straight man. That's why the kerbal series was so good.

Abby is awesome but she's kind of like an intentional dan ryckert? She leans more on the willing to goof spectrum than the straight man spectrum.

We need Alex back.

No, the first 5 hours are good. They are just more linear than the rest of the game. Jumping at phantoms with the wrench is also a bad strategy. Had he gone to his office immediately he would have had the shotgun, as there is one in the closet there.

I liked the stream btw. , i'm just saying the gameplay is more freeform later.
