Let's not pretend anything he said was somehow worse than what you were slinging a few posts prior.

But, what I said was to the people working there. I don't think comic book readers nor people who like nintendo games are weirdos. That would be dumb. But he took it personally so that's why I said he got triggered. I don't think anyone who works on either of those companies post here, I might be wrong

It's all about the immersive gaming experience, not plebeian pretending, good sir!

Okay, I misread what you were implying. That's on me! I didn't catch that you were talking about the employees, which is...well, whatever. NOA had some, shall we say...interesting people working for them and handling localization. Some of those folks have done and said some pretty questionable things over the past couple of years.

Naw, man. No one ever claimed it was as powerful as the other devices. It doesn't need to be.

With the Switch...not so much. It's about as "top of the line" as the PS4 or Xbox One, only with mobile components. None of these devices are cutting-edge, but the Switch is still using relevant mobile tech.

It's not like we're talking about the Wii, which was effectively a Gamecube shoved into a white case.

Bullshit. Crappy visuals, cheap-ass tech.

Well, we already know what's inside and it's no more "cheap-ass" than any other piece of consumer electronics. They're trying to make a profit on these things, after all. Mobile processors ≠ cheap-ass, unless you don't understand the difference between processors used for mobile devices and those used in traditional desktop devices.

I think the visuals in most Switch titles are solid...but, I'm also not directly comparing them to - nor expecting them to be anything like - the visuals seen with the other devices on the market. Of course, this particular aspect of the discussion is pretty subjective, so...there's that.

Not when you connect it to your large display at home, it's not.

Once again, any reasonable person wouldn't be directly comparing them.

This is, of course, far too much to ask of most people.

It's designed for home use as well as mobile use. There's nothing unreasonable about discussing the crappy visuals on a large display at home.

Unless reasonable means ignoring design flaws and weaknesses.

See, it's the "crappy" part that is largely subjective. It also doesn't make much sense to compare a device constructed with components designed for mobile devices to one built with what is essentially off-the-shelf PC parts, regardless of what display they're connected to

There's going to be a difference in overall visual quality.

And what "design flaws" are we referring to?

Sure it does, when they're both designed to include that ability.

You have a gift for understatement!

The Switch.

At some point, after you have won the number off awards Nintendo has won, and had the consistently positive reviews over 30 years they have had you are going to come sort of consensus on how good Nintendo is.

Pac Man for the 2600 is the best game of all time....


Nintendo is hands down the best video game developer of all time. And more people agree with me than would agree with you.

Holy hell.

It doesn't need to be. How long are you old men going to pretend the graphics wars are still going on? IT...IS....OVER!!! Budgets now run to high given the available computing power. Muh 8k Minecraft, hur dur.

Send out the word, the war is over! Nintendo won with two duct taped Gamecubes!

No beer? No lawn!

Rolling Rock: $7 for 12 bottles. There is really no need for anything else.

Are you feeling adventurous? You think your a real man? Costco BEER. This is the nastiest shit i've ever had in my life. 48 can for like $5.70. 1 can gave me a headache, on more than one occasion.
