The patch is out. No idea how big it is, but it took me about 30-minutes to download. I guess it improves things? The lighting on the guns looks a little better, and there seems to be fewer cases of blurry, low-res textures everywhere, which is certainly nice. Maybe more foliage on the ground, but it's still pretty sparse. Overall performance seems about the same, perhaps a touch smoother, but it's hard to tell. I'm sure Digital Foundry will have a video posted to tell us all about it.

Switch Up has posted an updated review of the game based on the latest patch:

He says, "It still looks like the Nintendo Switch version of The Outer Worlds ... but it's a much, much more enjoyable experience when it looks the way it looks now." He also says framerates are generally more consistent.

I wanted this game at release but frame rate issues kept me away. Bought it yesterday and have enjoyed it so far. I don’t have any other version to compare it to, but I am happy with my purchase.

Bought it yesterday as well since it was on sale on Amazon. Gave it a shot on Game Pass and loved the first few hours so figured may as well buy it on Switch. Never really been into the Fallout games but something about this one intrigues me. Definitely has its hooks in me and cant wait to see where the story goes!

Also, picked this up on sale. Gameplay is great, but the blurry visuals make it difficult for me to play for 30+ minutes. It sincerely causes me headaches.
Aside from that, it's been a fun time so far and definitely worth it at a discounted price.

Finished it tonight. Took me around 40-hours. A lot of interesting choices and consequences throughout the game that shape the story which is wrapped up with a lengthy narration describing how your decisions affected the various people and places. Some of the subplots have several different endings, enough so that I'm actually eager to start a new character and try different approaches. The final mission is a push through a heavily guarded prison which could be a vicious slog through a few dozen soldiers, but my character had high enough speech skills that he was able to secure a holographic disguise and simply walk through, lying his way past anybody who became suspicious. Very cool! I love it when role playing games give you those kinds of options.

As for the graphics, yeah, this is a fairly ugly game on the Switch. I played the last couple hours docked, and at times it almost had an oil painting appearance, sort of indistinct and smeary. Handheld is definitely the way to go since it hides many of the flaws. Never had any problem with the performance, though. Game runs smoothly enough, and combat was always manageable.

So in the end, I would say very good RPG that is given a somewhat disappointing presentation on the Switch but is nevertheless still an enjoyable enough experience.

I finished this over the weekend, and it reminds me of the original 2 Fallouts (probably because it is the same people). I love that they planned for things to happen, such as there is an actual script if you kill important people. The visuals did not bother me for the most part except for the occasional popup while running. I am debating another go at the game soon because I am curious to see what happens when you approach things differently, and I am going to see how many flaws I can find.

Just got a Switch and I picked up this game. Looks pretty good so far, just started it enough.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

I watched a video with the developers commenting on a speed-run, and one of the remarks they made is that they worked very hard to make it difficult to break the game by killing main characters, or doing quests out of sequence. They wanted to give the player the freedom to approach the game however he wanted.

I did encounter several circumstances where I unknowingly completed a quest objective before meeting the quest giver, and the game accounted for it with unique dialog just for that situation, which I thought was a nice touch.

It plays fine on Switch, and it's feature and content complete. It just doesn't look so good sometimes.
