Can't create "bad blood" if you're systematically ignoring all info until launch

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

Just preordered Catherine Full Body

Technically the third time I've bought this game in addition to PS4 and the JP exclusive Vita version, but I'm willing to support Atlus' self published efforts on Switch

It doesn't necessarily mean Persona is happening soon but I'd honestly love SMT in general getting a spotlight

Persona 5 Royal is a lot of fun as is

Started playing YS VIII again. After that fabo Trails of Cold Steel 3 demo I was craving more Falcom. And its gonna be a long wait til June 30th, though May 29th will make the wait much easier.

@TheFrenchiestFry
Oh I'm pretty sure Persona will come. Catherine wouldn't be coming if they hadn't finally realized the money they're missing on.

The catch is, it'll be 2 years from now, after everyone bought the game, TWICE over on the same system, and they've squeezed every last drop from that cow they can... then you'll see it announced for Switch.

Just like all these other games coming to Switch.

But I've caught on to this cycle. I've learned that if I'm just patient, it'll pay dividends later.

I'm actually not sweating that game. They announced it early, sure, but it'll come. Think in 2018/19 full scale development began in earnest.

I figure that'll be a 2021 reveal, with an early 2022 Japan release and late 2022 western release. Few years away, so for now it's on my "remind me when its revealed" list.

Atlus has a bad habit of announcing games before they've even started full development.

The wait for Persona 5 was agonizing, and the wait for SMT V will be even moreso, but it'll come, and, based on the company's track record of excellence, it'll be fully worth the wait.

Yikes. PS5 may have serious overheating issues to the point of a 12 month delay and full redesign more in line with the PC-build of the Series X

And this is why managing heat is so important. This is why Switch is so underclocked at 7W in handheld mode. I know alot of people were clamoring for higher clocks which would run the system hotter (which, with Switch there's also the battery life that must be considered, not just heat), but this right here is precisely why they allow for such a wide margin. If true, underestimating the Series X would also be a key factor, but if it could handle heat better it may not be an issue. Compact little consoles can only handle so much. You want a console that pushes close to a 2080 ti you had best ensure it has proper heat management, which seems to be an issue without going for a slightly larger, vertical build.

This is why, when I bought my new PC with the best GPU/CPU on the market, I made sure it had SIX FANS that I keep running at 100%. Heat management is imperative to prevent hardware failure.

All the power in the world doesn't do any good if you don't have confidence in reliability.

@JaxonH According to people in the PS4 discussion, the source on that has a history of anti-Sony behavior and rumor spreading, I would take it with an incredibly large grain of salt.

Idk why anyone with a credible reporting position would make something like that up, especially since there had been rumblings among multiple developers, but... it very well may not be true.

In the end, that accomplishes nothing. If it’s actually true, we are going to find out one way or another. Downplaying it or trying to discredit the source won’t bear fruit at the end of the day. At the same time, if it’s not true, making things up out of thin air won’t bear fruit at the end of the day, and will only serve to discredit the person reporting those things.

In either case, we’ll find out in due time one way or the other. And it’s still a perfect time to highlight the importance of heat management, having proper cooling, fans, etc. some thing that has been a top priority for me as a gamer. That’s why I paid $100 for a special nylon back cover and copper heat sink for the GPD Win 2. Knocked temperatures down by twenty degrees... and that’s celcius, not Fahrenheit. Heat is the real enemy of gamers. Always looking for ways to drop temps, although I do think the Switch could handle somewhat higher clocks in the v2 model.

@scubydo
It's great.

There's a full story summary available from the main menu. Takes about 15 minutes for the first game and 15 minutes for the second. I recommend devoting half an hour (entire world is layed off, we've got the time), and catching up on the story, then playing the demo afterward.

As someone who hasn't played the previous games (beyond a limited amount anyways), I felt fully immersed in the characters, world and knew exactly what was going on and how the characters landed in the situations they're in.

By the end of the demo, I was thoroughly engrossed. And, the save data transfers to the full game. So not only can you catch up on the story before the game releases, you can get a head start and learn the combat so when June 30th rolls around, you hop right in and go at it.

Lol guys... yea, heat is something to think about with hardware, but a lot of these components are built to withstand temps of 90+ Celsius. I'm not gonna waste part of my life watching that video, but the headline alone seems a bit sensational to me... people will do anything for clicks. Always have, always will.

And @JaxonH, you're being waaaaay too paranoid with your PC, brother. I have a fresh rig I just built a few days ago with Ryzen 3600 and Radeon 5700 and my case fans, gpu fans, and cpu fan are on curves that only take them near 100% at absolute maximum gaming loads. Like Shadow of the Tomb Raider ultra settings at 4k maximum lol And yea... just good ol' fans. No liquid cooling. No liquid nitrogen (ha). It's mostly about smart air flow in PC cases. Consoles are usually more limited because people demand nicer-looking aesthetics.

The Switch is a bit different because its form factor limits its cooling capacities immensely. I mean, come on, the thing's a handheld. It's tiny. You can't compare its cooling abilities with a PC or console, they're not even in the same ball park. You'd be better off comparing Switch to smart phones lol

You do you, let me do me. I dont even like any PC running in the mid 80s. Not good long term. And I've experienced too many issues from heat personally, and read too many reports of others having issues from temps over 90. So ya, do what you want for your stuff but for me, I like good airflow and temps in the 70s. And always go above and beyond to ensure temps stay as low as possible for handheld gaming.

Per PC Gamer's recommendations:
Under 60°C: You’re golden. Nothing to see here.

60-70°C: Running okay, but perhaps a bit warm for stock (check fans/dust)

70-80°C: Maybe okay if you’re overclocking and trying to eke out the last 100MHz, otherwise check cooling fans, dust, and maybe back off the voltage or overclock (if applicable)

80-90°C: Potential for throttling to occur, and about as far as we’d ever want to push a CPU

Over 90°C: Almost certainly throttling, and combined with high voltages could kill a CPU within months to a year or so.

Also, ReviewTechUSA's video does have a clickbait title, but that's not evidence of the report being less credible. Idk if that report is true or not, but the video's title has nothing to do with it. Rich isnt the source of the report, he's just discussing it. Clearly the report is circulating given someone just said it was already being discussed in other threads. And it's the report we're interested in, not ReviewTechUSA's analysis of it. That said, I love hearing Rich's take.

edit
On second thought, my opinion has changed. That headline is not clickbait. If the report is true, and the delay in reveal is indeed due to hardware issues that could potentially result in a delayed launch, then Sony is indeed in some serious trouble, perhaps the biggest we've seen since the red ring debacle from Microsoft. So saying they "may" be in serious trouble, after a report like that, is an understatement, if anything. Whether it turns out true is another matter entirely.

grizzgolf

Can I play Wii U games on my new Switch? I don't want to re buy Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for my switch if I don't have too.

grizzgolf

Tangerine

@grizzgolf Nope you can't. Have to re-purchase I'm afraid.

I hope with the Switch 2 they take a leaf out of Microsoft's book when it comes to backward compatibility and Sony for that matter. Otherwise they are going to get some serious criticism. I have so many switch games and it doesnt seem fair or consumer friendly when looking at what the other big two consoles are implementing next gen.

Tangerine

NintendoByNature

@grizzgolf I would grab yooka-laylee and the impossible lair. It doesn't get much closer to tropical freeze than that game.

@Heavyarms55 @rallydefault Yeah, I agree. The lack of launch parties/potential physical delay is probably the reason for the TLOU2 delay. I expect that once the major measures are lifted, the game will follow soon. They probably want to make the launch a big event. And since spoilers are very much a thing with ND games, even more reason to delay it and ensure everyone can play at the same time.

@Tangerine The Switch changed to cartridges from discs, and the architectures of the two systems are entirely different. BC was pretty much impossible in this case. Nintendo has always provided physical BC when it was possible to do so (GB on GBC; GB/GBC games on GBA; GBA games on NDS; NDS games on 3DS; GC discs on Wii; Wii discs on Wii U).

@Ralizah Yeah... it wasnt possible to do physical backwards compatibility this gen.

I just want to be able to play all the physical AND digital games I've bought for the switch, on the switch 2. Hopefully that's what we'll get...
