    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    There's a frame rate video of it up online. It mostly sticks to a solid 30fps, only dropping a frame or two when zooming around the planet really fast or in a very big fight. It drops a lot more in two player split screen where it can hit low twenties during very heavy battles.

    Also in the past cartridges loaded fast because the amount of data being pulled out of them was far smaller than the data transmission rate of the cartridge. Now though we are pushing through a lot of data while the transmission amount isn't that high. Basically the pace of capacity increase has been greater than the pace of transmission increase. Even in the old days though there was loading on some cartridge games (noticeable loading). For example wipeout 64 on the N64 was one.

    It sounds much more like the original theme than the more bombastic Murray Gold ones. I like it.

    The BC part wouldn't be the problem, it's just an arm CPU and 256 cuda cores. The problem is that nvidia decided to not make a newer series of very low power Tegra systems and instead decided to make newer chips to be used in cars which allowed them to use more power. Tegra X2 was designed for that. Nvidia thought that Tegra X was a bit of a dead duck before apparently deciding to offer nintendo a very good deal to take a large number of the chips of their hands. Because of the success of switch there is probably a renewed push for a new chip to power the next gen version (it takes years to design a new chip) and also a probable push for a new die shrink of Tegra x1 so they can use a better process like 12nm. For Nvidia it makes financial sense as the switch is bring in quite a bit of profit for them and they now have a foothold back in the console gaming market.

    Also a hardware revision is pretty pointless unless nvidia do a die shrink on the Tegra. There is very little space inside the machine for a change in design.

    Dragonball Fighterz

    Unreal 4 has specific support for the Switch. It's been heavily worked since the switch launched and was updated when Fortnite launched. Unreal 3 wasn't sepcifically but people have been able to work with the engine to get switch running it (Rocket league for example).

    You need to fix that. Also makes the game even better.
  8. Low production values? Each episode of the Bodyguard cost somewhere around 5-6 million quid. Most BBC dramas like Line of Duty etc cost a fortune to make.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    If you look at the comments then you see that you really don't need an uber rig to get it running at 4k/60. I might go and try the demo to see how it runs on my i5 4670k and 1070.

    Mario V Rabbids is basically Xcom lite but is a very good game in it's own right. It's also pretty long as well which is nice. As for recommended games, well it's going to be very nintendo heavy as they have be very good. The usual stuff like Zelda BOTW and Mario Odessey are some of the best entries in their respective series. Then there's Splatoon 2 which is insultingly fun. Mario Kart 8 DX is...well it's mario kart and it's superb. Third party wise then Skyrim if you never played it (the switch port is very good). Doom as well. Cities skylines just came out and it's also a good port. However it's the indie stuff where the switch really excels. There is so many good indie games on the system that it feels like their natural home. Games like Hollow knight, Golf Story, Into the breach, Dead Cells are all wonderful. I missing a load of stuff out of course but it's a great machine.

    You are so wrong you possibly couldn't get any wronger if you tried to be.

    It performs badly on all systems when in large cities. No surprise the switch is around 20fps in dense areas and big cities.

    Luigis mansion 2 did big numbers in Japan so it was always on the cards. Total worldwide sales were around 5.45 million.

    Looks like the direct will be on thursday and Nintendo life seem to have leaked an embargoed e-mail about it.
