Has anyone noticed Amazon US's search for Switch games is 100% broken? I have never been able to find L.A. Noire on there and took it as a sign coupled with the rediculous download requirement it just wasn't meant to be.

However, I also just noticed that Doom for Switch does not show up either. Searches for "Doom switch" "Doom nintendo" etc. do not turn up the listing for Doom (at one time it did....I pre-ordered that way.) I end up seeing UK imports for, like $90, and every other platform, but not Switch. I thought maybe they're sold out so it doesn't show up anymore, So I went through my order history and clicked through and it takes me to the page...and it's still in stock for sale. I'm betting somewhere hidden is an L.A. Noire page as well that I can't locate no matter how much I search (Anyone that has it in their history, I'd appreciate a link, though I'm likely to not buy or buy on PS4 due to the download mess.)

But this is a disturbing trend that it seems that even though Amazon has pages and inventory for 3rd party Switch games, they can not be located via search at ALL as though they do not exist. This is certainly going to hurt 3rd party Switch sales massively in NA.

The Chromatic Aberration option didn't make any visual changes in my game, at least I couldn't see them.
I thought it's just for light reflections.

It's all about shutting off "Look Smoothing" and "Motion Blur". These make the real difference.

That's crazy they would put such a game changing setting on by default, particularly when it's negatively affecting the res.

See: "Modern Triple A Gaming"

Lens flare, chromatic aberration, screen grime, depth of field, bloom, and worst of all MOTION BLUR.

All nice effects that can be used to subtly improve the visual experience, but are almost always used so egregiously that it can lead to an unplayable game for many.
I was so excited to play Ratchet & Clank and Final Fantasy Type-0 on PS4, but both games have such outrageous use of motion blur that I absolutely cannot play it.

@NEStalgia Yeah, I can't find a real Amazon listing for LA Noire at all. Closest thing is this: https://www.amazon.com/Swh-Noire-videgame/dp/B075N573B3

DOOM Switch wasn't hard to find, though. It was the second listing when you type those words into Amazon's search bar (Skyrim was the first result for some reason).

@NEStalgia I just had a look on Amazon.com from the UK to see if my IP would bring up different results but nope,neither show up on main listings, just the UK import versions. At the very bottom of the page though , a US Doom appears under 'inspired by your views'. When I click on 'customers who viewed this also viewed' though its nowhere to be seen again. That is certainly going to result in lost sales.

@Ralizah Doom is the second listing underneath Skyrim for me too but it's a UK import for $74.99 with a 1 star review.

@OorWullie You're right, I hadn't noticed. What on Earth is going on with Amazon's site to cause this to happen?

@JaxonH I've just got the plasma gun, is that stage 3?
But your so right, what a fantastic port, I have not tried docked mode yet.
Yes sometime the graphics in the back are a little blurry so I understand a little when purists get upset it's not crisp, but wow this is a must buy. So much fun, loving the multiplayer too. Loading times are not as long as I thought they would be so pleasantly surprised.

@OorWullie Yeah, it's a sales disaster for third parties.

@Ralizah it wasn't that way back in September when Doom was announced. I searched for it and it came up immediately after the Direct within a day or two and I pre-ordered. I'm guessing they massively broke something in their search engine when they redesigned the site for their annual pre-Black Friday mandatory redesign (which I loathe that they do that, they always break the site), but I wonder if it's limited to these Switch games, or if it's a broader problem across everything from linens to automotive? Come to think of it, L.A.Noire for PS4 isn't showing up either. But Doom for PS4 is (because it's a year old.)

@Deathwalka it's a lot less blurry if you turn CA off in the video settings. Looks more like classsic id games, to me that way. Of course I also turned on the classic Doom pose: Gun in the middle. Where it's MEANT to be!

The sound glitches are mounting up for me. In Level 5, the loud sound distortion has happened 4 times on the left speaker and I've had to restart at a checkpoint twice because all the sound dropped out completely. I think I'll give it a miss from here on out until there's a patch, I'll come back to it at some point.

@NEStalgia haha yeah the first thing I did was put the gun back in the middle.

Now if only we can get classic Doom too

I pre-ordered Doom, it arrived on the day of release, loving it so far!! Probably played 75% in handheld mode.

@MarioBrickLayer it really is so good, and I've heard the sky rim port is way better! Bethesda have outdone themselves, I will support all their ports because of this dedication to give us as much quality possible with the timeframe and hardware

It's kind of hard to believe, but this game is actually scratching a Metroid Prime itch for me with it's campaign. Almost like the Hunters sequel we never got, focusing more on weapons, combat and substantial multiplayer, but still possessing lore and secrets for those willing to find them.

Doomguy also reminds me of Samus despite his purposefully barely-developped backstory. He hunts demons with the same gusto that she does with Space Pirates, and both species are equally terrified of their respective nemeses, as described in their writings. And the glory kills work almost exactly like lethal strikes from Other M.

@JaxonH @meleebrawler I said it first lol like last Friday. You know what else it reminds me of.......Perfect Dark only with Demons instead of Aliens. Maybe that's just me and the lack of playing a ton of single player FPS.

Ya. It's the elaborate 3D maps with secrets and map stations. It's the 1st person view and demons you fight like space pirates. It's the lonely but deadly atmosphere.

@QwertyQwerty I have to agree. The sound issues are really starting to get on my nerves in later stages. Really hoping a patch gets released soon. I may also take a break until it hits.

@Akira_1975 hold on what are these sound issues? I'm in hell at the moment and I have not come across any issues? What sort of sound probs are u getting??

Deathwalka

Akira_1975

@Deathwalka Well, I'll hear a loud buzzing sound at random points. Sound will also diminish in quality to the point it's barely hearable. I've also heard popping and static sounds. Once these happen they won't go away until I restart from a checkpoint. I'm not sure if playing docked or undocked has any impact on the frequency of these issues. I'm surprised you haven't encountered any of these. Especially now that you're playing in hell.
I haven't played enough multi-player to know if they happen there as well. Looks like Bethesda is aware of these so hopefully a patch isn't too far off.

The one time I got the loud buzz, it stopped after I went into the map screen and back out. HVe you tried that?

It is a known issue, hope they can fix it soon.
