    On a side note, can we have that guy who did the Indies presentation do more? While I do love me some Reggie sometimes, I think he did a fantastic job and wouldn't mind it if he hosted more Directs.

    Unless he has already.

    I agree, I fully expect there to be no need to make a shitty port. I share the same opinion but the only thing we know "for certain" is that it is out on Friday. On a different note, I was pretty surprised to see some titles launching within a week of the console's release. With all the info coming out over the last month, it's crazy we're still finding out about new titles! Maybe it's even easier to port than previously believed.
    ALSO, I wonder if part of the exclusivity money-hat included a clause about "must include HD Rumble" because a lot of them did that. I hope it gets really popular and becomes the new norm!

    This is taking it to a weird place no one is suggesting. And if there was a degraded port, do you think the devs would advertise that fact? Mario Maker 3DS certainly didn't brag about being a lesser version!

    The only thing I was saying is that stating that all these ports will be identical is something we don't know yet. I am not suggesting they will be worse, just that we don't know they'll be the same. I agree that they probably will be the same or very similar! I didn't realize this would be such a controversial opinion. Nintendo has been so weird with their wording and drip feed of random info I don't feel comfortable giving them the benefit of the doubt on a lot of stuff until I get told explicitly. And isn't Skyrim "Skyrim: Switch Edition" and not just the same skyrim? It'll probably be very close but maybe have a few differences in some ways. Or was that a rumor and it is the normal version?

    iirc he was a developer relations guy, so probably he's the head of the department working to get indies on the system. probably only going to see him in this capacity?

    Nearly all indie games aren't exactly pushing the upper limits of horsepower, so there's really no reason to brace for a significant number lower-tier ports unless the developer gets extremely lazy.

    So im slowly talking myself into another set of joycon vs a pro controller....
    4 player and all.

    i suppose the charging grip is then mandatory so i have another way to make a bigger 2 player config?

    This is expressly why I'm waiting to see how dogface feels as a controller before I buy something else. If I don't like it for long periods, probably endup with a pro controller. If it's fine, probably another set of joy cons.

    Yeah especially comparing the overall power of the Switch vs 3DS. It's amazing how good they made games look on such little power (on the 3DS).

    No, Skyrim is a weird cause because they won't actually confirm one way or the other. Analysis says it most closely matches the enhanced edition (yay!) but the fact that they refuse to confirm that is weird (boo!). They're being specifically ambiguous about which version. However, this is a separate issue, at worst it will still be the same Skyrim that was released everywhere else. It just might not be the enhanced port. This is still separate than creating a specific "dumbed down" version for the Switch.

    Though I will agree that it's possible we're getting Skyrim: Enhanced: Switch Edition which is somewhere in the middle. Though for it I imagine it'll be lighter graphics but will likely have all the same features otherwise, but your point is valid there, we don't really know. It's a slightly different situation in general though.

    Mario Maker is a better example, but one of the key point is the title clearly marks it as not the same game: "Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS" That's usually hint number 1. Minecraft: Pocket Edition, etc. These are designations that it's not the same game, so it's safe to assume something has changed.

    I mean okay, maybe there's a remote chance that one of these games will be a "lesser version" but as of this very moment there's nothing to suggest that. If anything, these Switch versions are releasing with MORE features, not less.

    Yeah, I have known for awhile Blaster Master Zero was coming to 3ds, but just learned recently it was coming to Switch too. Apparently in Japan it is a launch title. They refused to say the release date for the US/EU version, obviously waiting for this event. I was really glad to hear it is not significantly later for us (seriously, I can wait an extra week. I was afraid we'd have to wait months)

    His opening line was so dry I feared he was going to be instant meme fodder but the rest was well done.

    Except for maybe the part where he holds up the two joycons for a cheesy "now with.. H D RUMBLE" moment

    I get your point, yes, they're Schrodinger's ports, they're both on par with and not on par with their original PC versions, but I just don't see the point in starting that line of conversation right after a presentation of indie titles that not only look to have parity with their original versions, but have "Switch-first" features that will be introduced later.

    Anyway, Overcooked and Duck Game?! Seriously, I had doubts about them showing up at all. My new plan is to buy up all these indie couch multiplayer games and a couple extra joycons and have a portable party game machine. Between trips to my parents and hanging with my friends locally, there's always some fuckery with setting up a someone's PC in a convenient location and getting a grab bag of controllers working right, getting steam logins figured out (so and so's account has Ultimate Chicken Horse but not Jackbox games, etc.) If there's a way to get power and video to a tv without carrying a dock with me everywhere, it'll be perfect. And it's not like unhooking a dock is that big a deal anyway, compared to aforementioned PC setup shenanigans.

    I'm going to agree with both these things. The technical fault is in of itself a non-issue until consumers actually have the product, but we live in a day and age where the press report (and tweet) every single minutae of in-progress development shit and having this PR thing perpetuate without something from the horse's mouth to calm pre-release jitters is not exactly best way to go about your messaging imo

    Really? I didn't like him at all. He seemed too monitone and lethargic (almost like someone who knew they had to sound energetic but had just been up the past 50 hours rehearsing), then tried to make up for it by ending his sentences with little bursts of excitement which just came off sounding weird and unnatural.
