    Do you think it’ll overheat the system so much the portable part gets fused to the dock?

    Another remastered port of a two years old game… The Switch sure is getting top notch 3rd party support.

    Is that how over the top Disdaea has become?

    That’d sure make for awesome advertising.

    No, he’s just poking fun at the Switch.

    Nintendo’s systems are probably the least likely to run into problems the way they’re usually built.

    Anyone remember the Gameboy that survived the Gulf war?

    I’m pretty sure he’s referencing the bug in Disgaea D2 that melted people’s CPUs.

    Haven’t played D2, so I wouldn’t be familiar with that.

    I take it that’s part of storyline gag?

    up till Uncharted 4 PS4 best seller was TLOU rehash.

    It’s a flight risk to bring your Switch to an airplane with a NISA game loaded.

    implying that everyone buys games on day one?

    No, I already have it for the PC.
    Why throw out another 60 bucks for a downgraded version of it when I have already played it for more then fifty hours and beaten it.

    Hurt Nintendo fanboy plays Sony sucks card… it’s not very effective nor relevant in any way.
    2016 was a shit year game wise. Nearly every single game I got for PC and PS4 was infected by SJW BS or fan service to the max which rendered the games utterly boring.

    Implying that has anything to do with the Switch getting yet another port of a two year old game.

    Your fallacy is: Ignoratio elenchi

    That list seems incredibly incomplete, but yeah, TLOU was hardly the PS4’s best seller until last year.

    Its actually a fallacy to assume a game isn’t going to sell just because its two years old. Not everyone buys games on launch, I personally find it better playing games a little while after its released, that way its patched and there isn’t any hype clouding my judgement.

  21. TheOnceAndFutureKing
    February 18, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    Thats why I go with 3DS or PC, easier to weed out the SJW BS that way.

    do you think they can port this to the PC soon?

  23. hentaiDan

    Please port this to PC. Third party exclusivity = bad mmkay?

    I was not assuming that the game wouldn’t sell, I was mocking Nintendo for once against announcing a game that has already been out for two years will be coming to their new console system.

    You however is the one who read my post and jumped to conclusions because you don’t like it when someone mocks your brand of choice.

    Look at it, look at my post. “Another remastered port of a two years old game… The Switch sure is getting top notch 3rd party support.”

    Which part of that mention sales or says the game won’t sell? Not one single word of it does that. You however attempted ot shut me up with a fallacy because you don’t have a valid counter argument to what I stated.

    Let me make it clear to you, I mock Nintendo’s most cherished third party support, because to me, it seems their support consists barely of anything but ports of old games for most of 2017.

  25. TheOnceAndFutureKing
    February 19, 2017 at 8:36 am

    Umm, I was agreeing with you. Part of the reason why I don’t own a console is because I don’t like a lot of current AAA western games, particularly the SJW pandering ones like Watch Dogs 2. So why are you acting combative?

  26. TheOnceAndFutureKing
    February 19, 2017 at 8:40 am

    No, I just think its stupid to mock Nintendo exclusively over this because the PS4 did the same exact thing in its first two years by porting games like TLOU, Tomb Raider, and Uncharted. Why does it matter if its a two year old port? Like I said, not everyone plays games when they’re brand new, so these ports can reach a new audience.

    For people who gamed exclusively on the Wii U it’s not that bad to have ports come to its successor like games that came from systems they didn’t have like the ps4 or xbox 1.
    Still smh at the 60 dollar price tag even if it includes the DLC. Reminds me of all the ports for the Wii U that charged full price even though they were far cheaper on other platforms since they were out for years and only had marginal graphical improvements.

    I’ve been wanting to play this but was holding off on a PS4. I am getting a Switch day one. This is just gravy.

    Now we just need a Persona 5 Switch port.

  29. TheOnceAndFutureKing
    February 20, 2017 at 5:29 pm

    I hold off on a lot of games, with the exception of 3DS because those are usually cheap
