@link3710 Maybe Platinum will keep to that promise, I think it’s just that there have been a few cases where consoles have been skipped despite what had been announced due to whatever reason. Though some were certainly Kickstarter campaigns.

@FragRed It seems more 3rd parties are releasing current gen versions with next gen patches (kind of like Xbox One X and PS4 Pro patches) rather than next gen versions so I doubt Switch would be skipped.

@FragRed Mmm... What games are those? As far as I know, the only cancelled Switch games so far are Steep (Ubi's snowboarding game) and that one hockey game, whatever it was called. Pretty sure everyone's been surprisingly good about keeping their promises. Delays, plenty, but not too many cancellations.

@Grumblevolcano I know CD Project Red said they were doing that and Ubisoft with Rainbow Six Siege but didn’t know anyone else had come out and confirmed that was their plans. I guess that makes sense given how Microsoft is treating this more of the next upgrade rather than a new generation. Though Sony definitely seem to be the traditional one here. But still, as long as the current generation of PS4 and Xbox One X is supported than yeah I see the Switch won’t be an issue. It was more if it takes so long to come out that next generation is the focus hardware wise and they don’t bother with current generation.

@FragRed By the time that happens, it seems likely the Switch's successor will have at least been announced, so they might target that instead. Considering the late 2020 launch, PS5 and XBSX probably won't be in full swing until mid to late 2022 after all.

Picked up Rayman in the sale and started playing yesterday. So far it's a lot of fun! Is there any reason to switch characters, besides cosmetics? Any differences in mechanics?

Just saw this trailer for this game and it looks really good! I hope that it'll have Easy mode or something- it seems pretty cool game and Switch exclusive right now too

@toiletduck it's been years since I've played but I'm pretty sure it's just cosmetic and all the characters handle exactly the same. Such an awesome game glad you're enjoying it!

@redd214 cool, thanks! Yeah I'm pretty sure I'll get the 10 bucks worth out of this.

Number 3 of Platinum 4 is a new studio in Tokyo that's developing GaaS (Games as a Service) games. I wonder if number 4 is Scalebound revival developed by this new studio (Microsoft probably wanted it to be a GaaS game as almost all Xbox Game Studios games over the past 5 or so years are GaaS).

@toiletduck you're welcome, definitely worth it at that price, I bought it on Ps3 and ps4 that's how good it is!

@toiletduck That's an utter steal. I bought the game on both Wii U and Switch at full price... Such a good game.

@GrumbleVolcano - Not one but two live service games? Bleh. This is part of their deal with Tencent no doubt. They'll probably be good experiences (this is Platinum afterall), but there are too many of these live service games. Games that are built to never be finished, games that are built to keep player engagement at the maximum, and that ask players to keep spending.

But there's no denying that mobile gaming monitization strategies make bank.

How much did Fire Emblem Heroes rake in last year, half a billion?

@Magician I mean, the second one was just a theory. We only know of one in the vaguest of terms.

@StuTwo
Yea, I'm loving it. In my opinion, it's soooooo much better than the first Yooka Laylee. If this were the first game in the new franchise, I think they'd have a lot more good will (though I think Yooka Laylee still did pretty well).

@Anti-Matter The moon one could be interesting. I love sci-fi. Off to Google I go!

[edit] Might be interesting, but it sounds more like a post apocalyptic story than a sci-fi game. I don't know what it is with writers - why so few are willing to just tell a good sci-fi story without shoehorning in some disaster or monster or something.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Collection
Near perfect. No input lag. Lots of extras. Added save points. Great games. What more could one want.

Rune Factory IV Special
Surprisingly holds up very well on Switch. The assets are all super crisp and sharp HD. Looks extremely clean on the Lite. Text is fast and dialog buttons are incredibly responsive to move dialogue forward. It just feels so snappy, which is a small thing but it makes the game a lot more pleasant to play. This is one of those games where I hear all kinds of people rave about it, and even my brother who typically sticks to games like The Surge 2 and Nioh told me he put in 60 hours on the 3DS. I’m liking it so far.

Samurai Showdown
All around, another top tier fighter on Switch. The visuals do take a bit of a hit, but nothing near as egregious as Mortal Kombat XI (which honestly still looked pretty good all things considered). And to be fair it’s not really the visuals at all because the visuals look nearly identical. It’s just the resolution that takes a bit of a hit, at least in handheld mode. Backgrounds still seem really sharp, but the characters seem like they are 540p rather than 720p. That to me is within normal range of handheld games on Switch. It looks about as good as one would expect a current gen game like this to look running on a handheld.

Plays very smooth, haven’t noticed any issues in that respect. I saw some videos that showed it does drop in to the 50 range but, in practice it would seem that matters little because it’s not enough for me to notice anything.

Modes are limited to your story, your training and tutorial, offline and online battles. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done and it has all the single player modes, which is more than can be said for Street Fighter V when it launched. I really appreciate how different this game is and how it plays more to technical defense.

The Witcher 3
Still playing. Still looks noticeably better in handheld mode (even my brother was astonished at the jump with sharpness filter on to balance AA on the Lite, to the point I think he may even pick it up now). Still bouncing saves between Lite and PC. This game is still utterly amazing. Just had to reiterate that.

@JaxonH pretty excited to play megaman. I'll grab it this weekend. I used to play alot of nes and snes megamans back in the day, but anything past that era I missed out on. Excited to see what this collection is all about and i heard nothing but good things on YouTube.
