Guessing these were the new games Pete Hines was talking about. Interesting. Doom on the go could be pretty cool.

Yeah that's cuz a lot of them are. And even on these they had to undergo huge graphical downgrades.

Love that they're coming, just saying, doesn't mean that Switch is secretly a high spec console.

EA: "We'll put out a cut-down version of FIFA, and if that does really well... uh, maybe there'll be more games"

Bethesda: "Doom and Wolfenstein: TNC. Oh, and portable Skyrim: SE too, I guess"

Curious to see how many GBs it will take up.

Doom is on PC, And it can run on systems much much weaker than an Xbox One.

Example: https://youtu.be/Zq8UUkWfshg

Another running on Intel HD: https://youtu.be/DtCEsGHFwbQ

Yep. Still exciting that Bethesda thinks it's worth putting them out there, though.

Yes but reduced resolution textures and some compression can work wonders

Big, but I assume it will use lower res textures than PS4/XB1 as the Switch has less RAM.

80% of that is megatextures that absolutely won't be necessary for the fidelity the Switch port will be capable of displaying

That would be crazy, but I don't think that Bethesda would let them work in something they don't own.

I'll happily rebuy doom a third time. Killing hell spawn on my commute.

If wolfenstein is as good as the reboot I'll get that too.

Will be interested to see how these games hold up on Switch hardware. If the port isn't a complete mess, I could maybe see a portable Doom replay being worth it, but TNC I want all the bells and whistles and aren't waiting til next year.
