@Samus7Killer Yeah I'm going to buy it. I rolled my eye at the original Doom reveal, but for some reason I feel like the ability to tackle it small chunks on a smaller screen means I won't wimp out.

It's silly really. I don't mind horror (don't care for it personally, but it doesn't bother me) but since this scared the daylights out of me as a kid, I still panic when playing doom 64 or seeing the enemies. If I'm in the Switch thread whining about having accidentally thrown my switch, you'll know what I was playing. Not going to play this docked though.

Would be so cool if they included the original Doom in the Switch version...

@Ryu_Niiyama Honestly, I've played through the game twice on PC, and I can't really recall any actual horror moments. The game's brutal and gruesome, but not quite scary.

The fact that you're basically a one-man-army in the game really makes it feel more 'Let's kick some ass!' than 'ohgodscarydemonsrunrunRUN!'.

Peek-a-boo

Urgh.

Time to hop off the hype train, as Digital Foundry have confirmed that it’s going to be 30fps...

DOOM should have been prioritised to run at 60fps, even if the resolution and visuals takes a hefty hit. The silky smooth frame rate is one of the main reasons why the game is such a joy to play.

@Peek-a-boo Oh well, that's a shame. Not sure if I value portable Doom enough to put up with that on top of all the other downgrades.

Just to clarify, that's 30fps on both portable and docked mode, right?

@Peek-a-boo let's make it looks like a blur and a blocky mess so we can get that 60fps.

Fcuk that BS! The switch isn't touching PS4 or Xbox one for raw power. Sacrifices have to be made get certain titles running on switch

@MarcelRguez tested undocked but playing docked or undocked won't change a thing when it comes to target FPS.

@EvilLucario Basing it just off the trailer seems like a bad idea.

Reading more into it and it's apparently more than that? (They said they played 40 minutes of it) I couldn't watch the video so I can't say anything about it. But DF is really trustworthy and reliable, so them taking down a video like this... something is up.

if DF are right and the game uses dynamic resolution which goes low as 540p then damn that is some huge downgrade.

Memories of borderlands on Vita people.

Anyway let's wait and see to DF do a real test on actual switch hardware. They built a PC running switch specs and tested Doom running on it.

@kobashi100 You sure? I haven't kept up with how the Switch really works since launch and I can't really name any examples, but surely a game that's running at 60fps when docked, if it's graphically intensive enough, would take a hit in performance when undocked, right?

@Grumblevolcano More like clickbait, really.

@MarcelRguez BotW runs better undocked than docked at points. DF made a video on that when it got patches to smooth out framerate.

I think it comes down to hardware the most, but depending on how the game was optimized undocked might be better. But that's more the exception than the rule.

@EvilLucario True that. Then again, while it's an open-world game, it's also a Wii U port that aims for a stable 30fps. I'd say the issues it had when docked were optimization problems and not the limitations of the hardware, which would be the issue here.

@EvilLucario but the target FPS both docked and undocked was still 30fps. From my understanding the switch dock cannot target 60fps then undocked it goes down to 30fps.

@kobashi100 At this point I'm just willing to wait for the impressions embargo to be really lifted so we get better, concrete information. There's a lot of conflicting reports lately, I think.

@EvilLucario If Digital Foundry removed the video, either they made a mistake with details or it went up too early and have merely unlisted it/made it private until the embargo is up. Either way 30 fps is too much of a problem for me. And it starts to raise concerns about Wildenstein 2 coming to the Switch.
