@Dogorilla,

I don't think it will happen, that would need some serious downgrading. Not to mention that the community aspect may be removed altogether for that possible Switch release.

Doom is on Switch though, and Wolfenstein 2 is coming. So its not entirely impossible, but very unlikely all the same.

@Henmii Yep I agree, especially as it's an open world game which Doom and Wolfenstein are not. That said, Ark: Survival Evolved is coming to the Switch; I don't know much about that game or how graphically intensive it is, but it is open world. Of course we don't know how good the port will be yet, and I assume BG&E2 will be more graphically intensive, but I don't want to let go of this last sliver of hope just yet haha

Currently Playing: Pokémon Let's Go Eevee (Switch), Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies DLC (3DS), Earthbound (SNES Classic), New Super Mario Bros U (Wii U)

@NEStalgia Not offended at all, since I'm not one of those "in general" people. I'm the exception...

@NEStalgia Thanos is nothing compared to people in marketing! They are wayyy more ruthless
Sam is probably great at her job and I can feel that she's enthusiastic, but she does act like a control freak at times. I guess it's just part of the job...

They do like to have a main focus for each E3 and I guess this year was Smash. Hopefully we'll get a Direct near the end of July and we'll get a better idea of what else is coming to Switch, and maybe see more third party games get the spotlight.

I feel like Chiko has done it before, but I don't blame her it must be frustrating!

@Kimyonaakuma Errrm.... I actually AM a sales & marketing professional. No offense taken, though...

Too bad I missed a good chunk of E3 this. Tbh, this was a great year overall. A lot of great games on the horizon to play.

The more I think about it, the more funny it is that instead of getting the Star Fox game everyone already knew about, we got Star Fox in a game that simultaneously is closer to what people wanted, yet is also a game no one would care about if it didn't have Fox in it.

I'm reminded of when they made that weird XCom spinoff to bring the series back, and then a bit later they were like "also i guess you can have a new strategy game or whatever".

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

That's what I always say at birthdays too, to make sure I can stay

@kkslider5552000 I think you've hit the nail on the head there.

@toiletduck I just don't talk about it on birthdays at all: it's either too touchy a subject, or they simply don't understand what "business to business telesales" means, let alone talking about marketing campaigns...

@ThanosReXXX I can relate to that. I'm currently in marketing automation consultancy at a telco, imagine explaining that in a bar or at a birthday

@ThanosReXXX As far as one can go on the food chain from "single cell organism" to "energy based omnipotent being", as a sales and marking professional I suppose you can at least be glad to to sit one rung above lawyer?

@kkslider5552000 I mean, I'd planned on getting Starlink long before Fox came in. Fox just made it a day 1 purchase most likely, instead of waiting for the discount bin. But yeah, I don't think I've ever gone into an E3 so heavily expecting one game of a niche IP only to get something so absolutely different with the same one. That's gonna be one of the most memorable parts of this year's IMO.

@toiletduck Yeah, the thing with family and friends is, that they relate to marketing or sales in a business to consumer way, whereas I only do business to business. Back in the day, when my grandparents were still young, you had these pesky door to door salesmen with vacuum cleaners, pots and pans, encyclopaedia and what not, and these were quite hostile, simply putting their foot in the door so that people were kind of taken aback and overrun with their slippery sales pitch.

So, they and people from my parent's generation, take that memory with them, or into account when they hear the words sales & marketing. What I do, is simply offer myself for hire to any IT or tech related company, to sell or market their product to other companies that they want to have as clients or partners.

But try explaining that to the average Joe. Often leads to more questions than answers...

@NEStalgia I'm a Titan, a demi-god, for all intents and purposes. I'm FAR above lawyers, and even above our current, not really all that exalted president...
