Ok but do you have some rule that you have to start playing new games the day they release?I'll never finish them that way. When I put down a game for too long it'll be at least a year before i'll get back to it. I don't want to have a bunch of unfinished games so now i'm gonna start focusing on new ones that I buy until I beat it.
I like playing games at launch, if I wait too long I might not buy it at all, I want it while it's still fresh in my mind.Ok but do you have some rule that you have to start playing new games the day they release?
I never understand these "I have to finish this single player games before this new single player game comes out" mind set.
Thanks for the tip, didn't know that the demo was the opening part of the game.And you can already play DX11, the demo is pretty long(easily 5-10 hours) and progress carries over to the full game.
It's a Zelda game. Aren't high scores pretty much a given, even for the more mediocre entries? (even Spirit Tracks got an 87 metacritic score, Phantom Hourglass 90 and Twilight Princess got 95!)
Framerate is performance and it does affect the gameplay experience, so it should be accounted for when reviewing a game.
Not all games need silky smooth 60fps to play well. Some are perfectly good experiences with less. I wouldn't have enjoyed Dragon Quest Builders 2 more with 60fps; I would have enjoyed Astral Chain more with them.
And maybe the scores already account for this. A game can be better than average, even great, with technical failings.
No one is saying that the game needs to be 60 fps. Framerate drops are distracting and make the gameplay experience worse. Link's Awakening has several moments with unstable framerate. No one is saying that it makes it a bad game.
And since it is, even despite the fps drops it should deserve a great score. I don't think an 88 should be surprising even if the fps is unstable.
Cmon a constant stuttering switch between 30 and 60fps is super jarring. Either make it 30 or get to 60. If you cant hold 60 delay it and polish it or cap it at 30.
I think its pretty crazy to see Nintendo push something out the door that was clearly not polished enough.
Games that are native 1080 p look good on my 4k. Although the upscaler is very good on samsungs. It depends how far away you sit and how big your tv is. Mine is 75 inch and I sit 10 feet away. So 1080 p still looks good. Not many switch games run at 1080 p though so they can look very soft. My tv has a sharpening option that I use for non native games that really helps though too. 900p is doable with some sharpening being applied.don't play switch games on a 4k telly honstly
And it was bad then too. Just because Nintendo made past mistakes when it comes to the framerate of their game doesn't make it OK for them to do it now, especially on a title that looks so much simpler.
BoTw is running on underpowered hardware. Its pretty amazing it even runs on wiiu.
I wouldnt compare such a game with this kind of game, besides them both being named zelda.
$92 on the nose, if I buy from Walmart. Lot of cash for not a lot of game.
At $92 (80 + tax CDN) tho? Is that a good price for 15 a hour single player RPG experience? Everything doesn't need to be 60 hours long, I agree, but this isn't some $29 game either. A full fledged price for a bite sized RPG. At 25-30 hours I'd fall on the sword here, but I can't justify $92 for 15 hours no matter how shiny the review are.
Some of the excuses by fans of the framerate issue is remarkable to say the least lol Now it's "oh tht doesn't matter nor should anyone care" Nintendo you definitely got them
Frankly, I suspect a lot of their games are being made to run on upgraded hardware. All of their games except a few are going to run at better resolution and framerate as soon they release something with more memory and faster CPU.
Well there's a few scenarios I see happening. Either it gets a Nintendo selects release, it gets an actual sale (which happened for SSB, Xenoblade, and Mario Kart 8) or if none of those happen I'll get in 3 or more years down the line on ebay. Wind Waker HD has been around $30 CAD on ebay for a while now which is probably the closest comparison to this.Where do you usually get Nintendo first party games at a discount?
Of course, I really enjoyed Skyward Sword on my one playthrough. Attempts to play through it again have all failed....
i think midnight EST. that's what it was for Mario Maker.So is this coming out midnight EST or PST?
i mean i really honestly do not care. i play games that drop frames all the time. my friend has a PS4 and we play PUBG and Fallout 76 and both drop frames left and right. plus Nintendo is generally good about patching performance support. if someone cares, that is fine. that is their right. but just as well, it's my right to not care at all.Some of the excuses by fans of the framerate issue is remarkable to say the least lol Now it's "oh tht doesn't matter nor should anyone care
So the game clearly framerate issues but still gets a nice score. Must be nice to have that Nintendo privlage where reviews ignore shortcomings on games
As a ZELDA fan this is true which is why I was saying I just don't trust Zelda reviewsAh, I'm getting my Zeldas mixed up, I meant to say Skyward Sword, that's the one that even a lot of Zelda fans feel a little iffy about. It still got 93......
SMH at the 10s from IGN, Eurogamer, Edge...

It's not just Zelda, Rockstar games as well.
If Red Dead 2 is a perfect 10 then I don't know where to start.
