    Yuck at that wii u framerate. People will take the switch version for that alone.

    Um. They played the Wii U version at E3. It’s not the console.

    It’s obviously the recording device.

    And still nothing substantial shown.

    They did, and there it also exhibited framedrops at literally anything but walking happening in the game… even something as simple as rolling a boulder down a hill.

    framerate i dont mind that much because game isn’t optimized yet, but what’s with the blurry visuals and washed out colors

    It looks boring in comparison with the world of Witcher 3 or even Skyrim from 5 years ago.

    you really thing a shitty tablet will perform better than a console?

    Y’all need to give nintendo a little more credit than that. They know how to record gameplay off their own consoles

    Are you retarded? The specs are already out there, why does it matter where are they contained? The Switch IS more powerful than the Wii U. You calling it a shitty tablet doesn’t change that.

    but it is a shitty tablet.

    We have capture cards that record more than 60 frames a second without fail. We have software that can record even moreso. Nintendo, a company with plenty of money would spare no expense to ensure that it looks as smoothly as possible, and would have access to such things. I can easily record 60 frames a second on game footage with little to no drops in framerate, dipping into 58 or 59.
    And you’re saying Nintendo would risk having faulty recording software on one of their flagship franchises?

    I’m thinking the Game Awards prepared the set up.

    Again, we’ve already seen a ton of gameplay on Wii U at E3.

    tbf there’s not much released besides it using a custom tegra chip. Everything else I’ve read has been pure speculation/rumors.

    No doubt the switch will be more powerful than wii u at least.

    Switch trailer was showing the game having low framerates when using it as portable

    yes it was the evil pretendos who threw a wrench in Nintendo’s plans

    Tablets don’t have controller parts

    Why differentiate use as a portable? The dock is just a charging dock. It doesn’t grant any extra power.

    I love how much control the player has over Link. My favorite thing about Zelda games is how precise the game gets with your control over Link. You don’t just control attacks; you control how he attacks with his blade. And this game increasing his mobility, allowing him to climb and to jump, all make this game look like its taking the best parts of Zelda and amplifying them.

    Nintendo Treehouse, well that was the final nail I the coffin. Now this game truly is dead to me.

    Watch as we replace meaningful dialogue with random 5 year old internet memes and change characters personalities on a whim. Impa is now obsessed with Cucumbers and Princess Zelda can’t stop talking about her muscles.

    PS: All swimsuits will be removed and replaced with faux-thug outfits.

    Because its possible, and actually pretty likely that the Switch scales things down when running on it’s own battery.

    We don’t actually know if its purely a dock, or if has additional cooling or scaling hardware either.

    source knows nothing much how the thing works but also speculate the same point I made earlier (system underclocking itself in order to preserve battery life)

    There also is probably the case of games themselves setting up the clock speed (like it could be seen on Vita)

    And your point is?

    “Main function” dies not mean “only function” if that’s what you’re getting at.

    I’m not say its true, I’m saying its entirely possible, and we don’t know for sure either way.

    Switch trailer didn’t show any gameplay run on the actual hardware, though; it was all just footage edited in to look like it appeared on the device’s screen (and tv’s).

    Chances are that was just Wii U footage used again when we saw Zelda on it as a portable.

    I also doubt the Switch will be as limited in the cpu department as the Wii U, or even the X1 and PS4.

    Consistently one of the best localization teams in the business. Your opinions on a few random jokes or changes doesn’t change that.
