Ouch. Quite a downgrade.

Hardly a fair comparison considering the Switch is about a quarter as powerful as a PS4 Pro.

Edit: Actually it's worse than that. PS4 Pro's memory bandwidth is 217GB/s while the Switch's is 25GB/s, nearly a tenth as powerful.

@Magician even so theres a clear difference. Pritty sure base PS4 is the same as pro just at 1080p rather than 4k. Gotta be honest the switch version looks like a 3DS game.

I really hardly noticed the difference in the video .... Thing is, this sort of game really should run perfectly well on Switch If it really is running noticeably worse, I'd wonder why

Which tells me that you either don't remember what 3DS games look like, or you're exaggerating for effect.

There's a noticeable downgrade, but it still looks like the same game. The most notable change is to the way environments are lit, interestingly.

Wouldn’t be a downgrade to me, since I don’t have a (insert comparison platform), just my Switch. So there’s that to consider.

Still looks good to me. As long as the framerate doesn't chug I'll be fine. I won't get it until the end of the year though. Not a 'vania fan in general.

As long as it plays well. No one in their right mind is expecting PS4 Pro performance on a Switch right? Surely.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

The switch port should absolutely not have to be downgraded like that for a game with that kind of graphic. It isn't like it is a graphical marvel or anything.

@Therad thats the point im trying to make. I'm sure its still great to play regardless I just posted it to give a heads up. Idk why some get so defensive.

No one got defensive. But you’re also not just giving a heads up. It’s all good, though.

They released an update on the kickstarter addressing the Switch version.

"We have been listening to the feedback regarding Switch performance. Our goal is for everyone, regardless of platform, to be able to enjoy the game and have it run smoothly. We want to live up to your, and our, expectations.

Throughout the QA process we have been addressing performance issues in the game. Update 1.01 was published to Switch prior to launch to add content and improve performance. It did not accomplish as much as we had hoped and we need to do more.

To address the concerns brought up by the community we are immediately shifting resources to improve performance and stability for the Switch. You can expect a number of small updates that will improve different areas of the game rather than waiting longer for one big update. We will have more details as we dive into the work.

We thank you for your patience and apologize for the inconvenience."

I like how responsive to fan feedback they are. Good to hear the game will continue to receive support.

@Ralizah yeah that’s always great to see. Especially considering they don’t have to do anything at all once it’s out

@NintendoByNature @bimmy-lee I went ahead and prepurchased Gaveyard Keeper, because of course I would.

@HobbitGamer - I knew it! I’ve had an eye on it as well. It looks really good, but I’ve never played a farm/work sim like that. I’ve come close to nabbing Stardew, but this seems way more up my alley aesthetically.

@HobbitGamer you dirty dog you. It looks great. I'm grabbing it at some point but I have a little too much to play and bloodstained is next on my purchase list

Oh and let me know if it's good

This game is coming to Switch.

Here’s a review for the release on other platforms. Seems interesting. Not really my cup of tea but I think the Ace Attorney/LA Noire crowd might love it

@bimmy-lee Well, You’ve seen how much I play Stardew. I enjoy the varied amount of activities, and GK looks to have quite a bit more tongue in cheek humor. And my family owns funeral homes, so it fits
@NintendoByNature I sure will!

Well I'm having a lot of bad luck with my first days with a Switch. So first they didn't give me a dock so I had to return it and get another version. And now the first game I bought on ebay was Xenoblade 2 and the seller sends me the Golden Country expansion instead of the base game.
I swear there are a lot of people out there just trying to swindle you.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Ralizah

@Dezzy LOL I've never had a problem on Ebay before. Do you check the feedback ratings for sellers before purchasing from them and/or message them with questions about what's included if they use stock photos for their product listings?

@Dezzy Holy ****. Running into multiple bad faith actors like that must suck greatly.
