    Funny, I was just watching the trailer last night and noticed the date too. Can’t wait to see how it looks on my new PS4 Pro

    Pre-ordered despite owning the 3DS and PS3 versions of RER 1 and the PS 4 and Vita versions of 2. I’m hoping for better performance and visuals than the prior portable installments, while the hybrid nature of the system means I actually have a chance of dedicating enough time to finish them. Resi Evil 4 would be even better but I am sure that will come later.

    I haven’t played this before and am intruiged, but I do feel like I’m almost compelled to buy it (like most other Switch ports) in part to show support (more Rockstar is a good thing) but mainly because, as with everything I’ve bought this year, I’m far more likely to spend time on it with the Switch. The PS4 and XboneS have barely been touched since March. The Switch has almost completely replaced my beloved Vita, and aside from Metroid, the 3DS has been lonely as well. Funnily enough, one game has dragged me elsewhere a lot - Half Life 2 on my Shield Portable. Now that (or The Orange Box) would be huge on the Switch!

    I hope this is true. The profile transfer rollout suggests they are keen to have multi system ownership in each home, Hulu marks the start of apps, and the massive increase of availability in retail and on Amazon means a lot of new Switches will he opened this holiday season, dragging in more users. The best sellers chart seeing Zelda andMario Kart 8 back in the top 5 last night means a lot of new systems are being turned on and the biggest franchise games getting downloaded again. It’s going to be huge.

    So happy I picked up this adaptor for seemingly one game only my kids played. Time to dust it off for all sorts of stuff. Those differentiated buttons a real boon for metal slug etc

    As a 47 year old with kids and a job with long hours, this doesn’t really bother me. My gaming has transitioned over the years to a very small number of lengthy, single player games (Last of Us, Uncharted, Resident Evil Revelaitons, and now Samus Returns. Zelda BotW is on hiatus for the moment). The rest of my time is revisiting retro experiences, mostly in short bursts on my handhelds (DS, Vita, 3DS), lots of indies, and occasionally carting out the CRT and the SNES/Megadrive. The Switch, like the Vita on steroids, is an amazing solution to my gaming problem - my lifestyle and attention span. I want everything on Switch now. If Konami’s Arcade Archives of Gradius etc moves to Switch, the PS4 would be going to Gamestop the next day. If this trend of AAA going to massive, multiplayer DLC driven tent pole releases, then maybe there are more developers around for what I want - quality AA releases, with risky ideas and indies that provide short cncentreated fun. Good luck to the people at Visceral. If only we had a Switch Version of Dead Space to remember them with.Edited last month by Unknown

    Great podcast folks. Steamworld Dig 2 is totally absorbing on Switch, and with Axion Verge makes up for the new Metroid game being 3DS only. Without the Switch I’d be all over the cross-buy PS4/Vita version, but it really underlines the usefulness of the Switch - both versions in one, no cross-save hassle, and profiles for my kids games as well. Everything really is better on Switch.

    I love my Vita (s). I have an embarrassingly large collection of physical games and a lot of digital titles as well. Juggling activated systems, a Japan PSN account, and what I have downloaded on my 2 64GB cards are both a pain but also offset by the 3 machine limit for games, cloud saves, and legacy support for much of my PSP and PSOne library. I’m never selling it. However two things made me sad this week. Playing Strangers Wrath on the 4gen Apple TV and then on my Shield TV, iPad Pro and iPhone 8. None of them felt as smooth or responsive as the Vita version. When programmed well that thing can sing. To hell with smartphone gaming. Secondly, my finger hovered over the Buy button on Steamworld Dig 2 on my Vita, knowing how good I’ve found the Switch version, both on mobile and TV via the Cross-buy bettering hybrid that is the Switch. I may yet but it, but the Switch is really where I want my games to be.
