It really depends on how big the game is if I get Doom or not. I wish they would just cut all the MP stuff and megatextures. I want to go all digital for not first party stuff but the size of the game and the boxart really make it hard this time...

Also yeah, this is how support looks. Fuck Capcom.

That would be good. Although if they could pull off like 640p60 handheld that would be the dream

From what i can read online it makes doom run really well.

It's a rendering system - ie, for generating the image of your game. Nothing to do with file size. The big thing is that thanks to various efficiencies it can eke greater performance out of the same hardware as in other rendering systems. This helps because it means the Switch GPU has a better shot at actually being able to run the game.

Considering Doom is 2017 and Wolfenstein is 2018, I'd say Doom.

At the moment it appears its Bethesda and Square Enix vying for Switch 3rd party support king.

I'll double dip in Doom if the price is right. I love that game but if it's full price I don't think I can justify it.

Wolfenstein is awesome news though and I'll probably pick it up for the Switch

No problem, i'm reading pc forums now and whilst it's confusing to me(don't laugh) most people say that when they added Vulkan support it made doom run like butter for those that could use it.
Depending on the pc people were getting up to a 40% increase in frame rate.
Makes sense that nintendo would add the support if it helped them bring these games to the system.

This person knows...

I suspect Doom's artstyle is going to hold up way better with the Switch's limitations than Wolfenstein's more realistic approach

Also Doom fucking rocks

Pretty cool but I doubt ill buy them on Switch since I already own Doom and will own Wolfenstein on PC.

All these ports and the one that I would still kill for is Dark Souls. Cmon Nintendo.

I think the fact that Wolfenstein II showed no footage (probably because it's not in a state to show yet) indicates that it's running on Switch

Cool that's what I thought but wasn't sure. So far it's not looking bad all things considered. Textures are downgraded as expected, lighting and shadows have been heavily scaled back, and motion blur is reduced or cut entirely (viewing on my phone). However bokeh dof is still in and looked good. I'm impressed so far.

I had never played a DOOM game before and never really thought I'd like this type of game but I got the game based off of the amazing reception and I believe it deserves every bit of praise it got. An all time great IMO. What was it 3rd on here for GOTY behind Uncharted 4 and Overwatch? Should've been higher...

Never played a Wolfenstein game so can't help ya there :)
