    Awww, but the Switch can’t run that, it can only play 16bit games....

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    The Switch is a little beast of a console. I love mine and it’s versatility is in my opinion the reason it is so successful.

    I think it's interesting that, when it was announced, it had so many naysayers. Too large for portable, not powerful enough for console.


    But it does a nice job at both.

    I mean I don't get this. I have a feeling this game is going to run poorly. I have a mid-teir gaming PC and I can only play this game on medium settings. Your telling me the Switch will be able to run this. This game is going to either be really damn ugly or be just as bad as the WWE2k18 port

    My guess is that they will change things for switch.

    For example, I run Skyrim at top settings on my pc. However, my girlfriend bought me a switch version for the days when she is out and about in the morning and I "just get up and want to play something."

    It doesn't look as good on the Switch but it's acceptable most certainly. Not sure what they did but it runs reasonably well. Some noticeable slowdown when looking at certain things but not really "game breaking."

    Are we getting a dedicated Nintendo E3 thread? Because Nintendo did a really great job this year. Everyone else got one.

    I was going to say this earlier. I missed the first 20 mins and came here to see the summary. I just assumed Suzie wasn't able to sit down and update on the fly like with the others for some reason.

    PC Games Show, The VR Showcase, Kinda Funny Games and Devolver weren't covered here.

    Nintendo has no dedicated thread because most of their games are not germane even to our somewhat loose standards of what's covered here. The two most pertinent are RPGs, Witcher & Zelda, so they're here because of their huge successes. While there are other RPGs, none of the rest compare to those.

    Feel free to make a thread in General Gaming about the rest. :)

    Will the game be censored because ... Nintendo?

    Yeah but PCs usually run games at a minimum of 60 frames per second. The Switch usually hovers around 30. Many thought we couldn’t get Hellblade,for example, to run well on Switch. They were wrong. Playing in hand held mode drops res down even further than docked. Yet to see it running in your hand it matters very little in real world play.

    Since Mortal Kombat 11 isn't censored I have a very hard time believing an "innocent" game like W3 will.

    Does Nintendo censor games? I know Playstation has been doing it but I haven't heard anything about Nintendo doing so. I mean Doom, Mortal Kombat, and Bayonetta were not censored so why would Witcher 3

    Nintendo has been letting straight up Loli hentai on their e-store for you for like a year or 2. A generation ago they would been aghast at the idea of DOOM on their console. I think "Geralt Bangs Busty Babes III" is going to be just fine. Side note: Pornhub exists.

    Nintendo used to be the one censoring games many years ago but not anymore. Today it's Sony the one censoring Japanese games that come to the west, but they are OK with western games being visceral and sexy. I hate that.

    Confirmed on Twitter that it'll run at 540p while in handheld mode, and 720p with dynamic resolution enabled while in the dock.

    Pretty bad to be honest.

    540p on a 6 inch screen is actually not bad at all for an open world 150+ hour rpg game

    They're still to confirm if handheld is dynamic as well. If it is, that's just a upper limit.. it probably wouldn't get to 540p or 720p unless you're in a small interior or something like that. They might have done some magic with the code though, who knows...

    Honestly I am going to get it since they announced that. That is a lot better then I thought. Just going to wait on reviews to read how bad the frame rate is. Would love to play Witcher 3 on the go though if it works well at these resoulations

    Yeah I mean we got Hellblade to 720p in handheld mode but it does drop a bit from here and there. (To 400p or so)
    720p is the max the screen has so 540p really is not that bad considering the cap the screen has. Plus when the screen is that small it is not that big a deal. (At least for many) 
    To sit on an airplane and play TW3 on a mobile device is a pretty cool thing for many. I think it will do well for the little console that could.

    I must say I'm surprised at the Switch working so well for people.  The portable mini console idea seems to be working.

    I barely touch anything else now a days. I try to game on my PS4 and just go back to the switch. That rest mode is so fast to hop in and out of game, I can take it anywhere with me, and the games don't look that bad honestly when your playing them. Everytime I boot up the PS4 I just wish it was handheld and go back to my switch. Just easier to play with a baby because as soon as she gets crabby I can get off with no worries.

    wait, you work for ninja theory? Hellblade was an absolutely stunning game. The art design was amazing.

    Nice job.

    Switch is the best console since the PS2. It's my go to system most of the time.
