@LeRaposa Except she had a lot right about that presentation. She doesn't make stuff up.

@IceClimbers Hyrule Warriors Super Legends featuring Skyward Sword and BotW maps and characters on top of all the 3DS content!

@Grumblevolcano I'd welcome that as long as I can play as Prince Sidon.

Beyond that I'd expect another Fatal Frame, the next Dynasty Warriors, and maybe Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden. Oh, and DoA Xtreme.

@Grumblevolcano and the return of Co op without the graphical loss that the wii u version suffered from! I really hope we see a hyrule warriors sequel. Or even another port, if it meant we got Co op back

It is weird. I play my Switch over my house's wifi through numerous walls, outside in my yard, etc. with no issues. We're talking fully online matches in MK Deluxe with no issues.

So, the signal does seem to show weaker, and I can only get 2 bars even downstairs next to router. However, even upstairs in a corner room of the house, one bar is enough for flawless online play. So, it may say one bar, but the connection seems fine.

However, my phone's hotspot does tend to give 3 bars. I just use powerline adapters with Ethernet while docked to avoid running a cord through the house upstairs.

@IceClimbers
Ya they said they permanently embedded Switch into their multiplatform software, so they can program for one source and it outputs for all the platforms (sounds really cool how that's done- surely that's how a lot of big devs do it nowadays, then bug fix afterwards). Hopefully by fall more devs will consider embedding Switch unto their multiplat software so that every game automatically comes to Switch too.

Woof - no need to be so hyperbolic. She got some stuff wrong, but she got more right. It's not debatable that she has connections in the industry and does hear things. It's just like with anything, though, sometimes you win, sometimes you don't.

@LeRaposa
As @IceClimbers and @rallydefault said, she actually got quite a lot right. Honestly I'm not sure where the vitriol around her is coming from. It's certainly not about accuracy. If it was then it should be remembered that it was her, Eurogamer and Laura Kate Dale before the reveal trailer talking about "NX" being a tablet you can connect to your TV with detachable controllers. Their critics were backing the Super Metal Dave theory around the "AMD design win" and the NX being some kind of PS4 clone.

I think it's interesting that for some reason SMD walked away silently while those other guys are still getting hit with the "they're always wrong" stick. Oh noes, she said that we'd get ports of Wii U games like Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Zelda and Splatoon on NX! But she's wrong because Splatoon 2 is a sequel not a port! .... really? Her critics thought the Switch would be a PS4 clone. It's not that hard to work out who was more accurate

I notice my WiFi connection is weaker when docked than when portable even if I'm using it in the same room.

@FGPackers Comparing game release and console release makes those sales more impressive than you may initially think.
Wii: Console = November 19th 2006, MKWii = April 27th 2008
Switch: Console = March 3rd 2017, MK8 Deluxe = April 28th 2017

@skywake I think people confuse her for Laura who very much DID get the vast majority of predictions wrong. She was clearly tagging along with Emily & Eurogamer's reports and making up the rest on her own that didn't verify, but Emily was always pretty accurate.

Did ANYONE really take the "PS4 clone" thing seriously? I mean that was one of the worst possible predictions. I'd have believed a rumor that said you put it in your shoe and play it with your toes before I'd have believed a PS4 clone

@skywake @NEStalgia @BiasedSonyFan Can we talk about that supposed 45% attach rate they're claiming for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? That number is weird. That attach rate for 459k sales would mean the Switch has a US install base of 1020k. We know that it sold 906k in March.

So either Nintendo is basing that attach rate off of outdated hardware numbers, or they only sold 114k units in April. Switch supply issues can't be that severe, right?

It says there will be new flying enemies too.I have an image of a Lynel with wings,swooping down like Pegasus.That's the stuff of nightmares.

I was just looking at the UK software charts to see how Puyo Puyo Tetris got on.It debuted in 18th place in the all-format chart with the Switch version 26th place in the single format charts.The PS4 version didn't even enter the top 40.Considering it is more expensive on Switch and the type of game that it is,that's not too bad at all.Also in the single format charts,Nintendo take 1st and 3rd,separated by Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3.Is that a popular franchise?It didn't exactly get glowing reviews,57% currently on Metacritic.I thought Sniper Elite was the popular one.Maybe some have been fooled into thinking it's from the same series.
