    really?? people are comparign even telltale games?
    seriously, there’s just no point, the game is the same, a little bit more or less pixes will not change the experience

    • Douglas Siano

      They really really toned down the wounds on his body. It actually kind of changes the experience a bit.

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        for most peiple it most definitely wont make the slightest difference. First of all, the differente is very minimal.
        Second, the scene is about how batman feels about it, his body language, his voice tone, things like that. The injury is just the reason, if he was wearing a shirt with a small red spot (as for the blood to visually imply he is hurt) the scene would have the same feel.

        • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

          there’s an example of what I’m saying in the video.
          On the PS4 version you can’t see the blood. On the switch you can.

          But in both scenes you understand that he is hurt and that is impairing his fight.

          The experience is unchanged

            you god that flipped around, the switch version is the one with the lower quality textures and the censorship.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Water is wet, agree

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            I didn’t flip anything, that would be really stupid considering the video is right above my comment… you can go watch the video for yourself o_O

          • Fandangle

            I did, and you still got it flipped around. Did you watch past the opening “OH WOW THEY TOTALLY DIDN’T PAY US FOR THIS!” Shot?

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            omg how did I get this flipped around?
            To anyone reading this.. this guy is trying to make me look like I’m lying, but you can go to minute 2:11 and see this same scene.
            And the difference is super small, I don’t see why you are complaining so much.
            Also, please give me the minute/second you are talking about on the video because I didn”t understand what you meant.

          • Fandangle

            The difference isn’t small, the difference is they added better water effects and…? The texture quality isn’t better, it’s different, but not better. The draw distance is DEFINITELY not better. Of course we’re arguing over an ugly game (even for it’s time) from an even uglier developer that hopefully no one buys because this is literally like the 10th time they’ve released this game.

    • Tide

      Personally I find the comparisons silly as well. We know the Switch version weaker and knowing how much weaker it actually is just takes away from the experience.

    • Fandangle

      Who said anything about resolution?

    • Wanderlei

      Comparisons are getting boring.

  • Reggie

    Don’t see why they had to tone down the wounds. Doom is a lot more gorey than this.

    • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

      I don’t see where they toned down the wounds

      • Look at the scene at the 1:00 mark. It is very obvious. It is still only a minor downgrade though.

      • Reggie

        My point
        ————–>
        Your head

        • Tide

          The arrow on the end of the line confused me. “Which one is going right” was my first thought with that lol.

          • Reggie

            It means that my point went over his head.

  • TruExtent

    Some lighting reduced, some textures adjusted, and of course the expected lower resolution. Looks fine to me. Heck, I think I saw some better frame rates in a few spots on the Switch version, 1:25 as an example.

    • Fandangle

      Frame rates would be important if the game didn’t basically play itself, or really required any significant timing or skill to play.

      • TruExtent

        That’s pretty much why I didn’t have too many complaints when I played on PC. (Even with my rig there were some frame rate issues…). I was able to get through and experience the story just fine. It was a great game to sit back and relax to.

        The only issue I had was weird graphical glitches that I’m not sure why they hadn’t been fixed yet. There was one point where Bruce was talking to Gordon and his head looked like it was going to snap off due to how far it was turned… But otherwise the game was great! Like I said, the Switch port looks fine to me. The PS4 version still looks great as well.

      • Nhat Anh Hoang

        Yeah, because Switch is not allowed to have anything better than the mighty ps4, ps4 is the best, especially when bring a ps4 and a TV as well as hope for a charge socket, the only worth owning console and can do anything a portable can like motion control. When Nintendo will learn? Look at vita sales blow 3ds out of water, Nintendo should follow it to make switch become a vita to get all panty games with underwear and fanservice, how stupid they are?

        • Fandangle

          The switch can’t run anything on par with the PS4 because Nintendo skimped out and shot their load too early. They were so close to being able to use the new Tegra chip in their console but they didn’t because they had to get that console out the door as fast as possible. I mean, I would totally believe Sony is paying off developers to screw nintendo over. I’d probably be the first person to believe it, I’ve seen Sony pull shady stuff like that before, but you just seem so incredibly biased whenever you bring them up.

          Also I don’t appreciate all this console warring you keep inciting. You’re literally the only one bringing up PS4 in this. I was criticizing the game itself and you’re the one who made it about consoles. You just keep rambling on and on about Sony versus nintendo and honestly it makes me not want to reply to you because you sound like a complete idiot.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            So you are complaining about a portable is weaker than ps4? Wow, a handheld is weaker than ps4, who would have though? Or maybe you want a 600$ or even 700$ portable to be on par with ps4? Yeah, absolutely perfect choice when of course it will sold to you only and many people who are ready to spend 700 $ for a portable. Yeah, really genius idea, you should tell that to Nintendo LOL

            Switch isn’t a portable for one. It’s a faux portable that’s got like a 2 hour battery life and better as a home console in pretty much every way imaginable.

            For two, I wasn’t the one that brought up the power disparity. You did by claiming that Sony is the reason no games run on Switch as well as they do on the PS4. You sound like a complete idiot honestly.

            For three, it actually wouldn’t take that price point. The Switch could have been more powerful if nintendo had waited for the next iteration of the Tegra chip, so it would have bridged the gap between it and the PS4 much more easily, buuuuut no. Nintendo borks it again.

            Your hyperbole and insistence on bringing up sony when we’re talking about nintendo keeps confirming again and again you’re nothing but a brain dead console warrior.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            LOL, the next Tegra chip will of course cost more. Are you producing it or something?. And Switch isn’t portable with 3 hours then 3ds with 3 hours also isn’t either. It is a console like ps4, right? So i can bring ps4 to car and plane to play without TV and charge socket for at least 3 hours like Switch, right? WOW, amazing, i didn’t know that, may i should tell that to all my friends who want to play their ps4 outside home

          • Fandangle

            Not particularly. In fact if Nintendo kept with the tegra x1 and waited for the tegra x2 to launch the price of the x1 would have been significantly cheaper.

            Either way Nintendo should have waited for the x2.

            3ds with 3 hours also isn’t either.

            3ds’ officially given minimum battery life is 4 hours. It also has a replaceable battery.

            So i can bring ps4 to car and plane to play without TV and charge socket for at least 3 hours like Switch, right? WOW, amazing, i didn’t know that, may i should tell that to all my friends who want to play their ps4 outside hom

            you sound so incredibly hateful. You constantly bring other console producers up whenever someone criticizes Nintendo, except it’s not even nintendo, you’re console warring because someone criticized developers who put a censored game ON a Nintendo console.

            You’ve not brought up a single thoughtful point all you’ve done is whine about Sony which I’ve barely mentioned and didn’t even mention in my initial post.

            You’re a fanboy.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Tegra X2 is only 25% faster than X1 and only use in car engine so far and it is no cheap now you want only Nintendo use it for Switch? Use something new and not common, of course it will be more expensive. All people are waiting for the next Tegra chip with at least 1 Tflops. Anyone who is shallow and low recognize will say like you, switch use Tegra X2 for now? LOL

          • Fandangle

            And the Tegra X1 is only used in a handful of other things beside the Wii U. and 25% faster is a lot, but you’re a fanboy and you seem to downplay everything. But yeah, totally don’t use that new and more powerful hardware because some dumbstuff on the internet thinks that less common things automatically mean worse.

            The second part of your paragraph is pretty bad I can’t hardly understand it. Maybe you should work on your english a little bit more?

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Handful of mobiles has been used X1 so far, X2 only in car engine, people are waiting for 1 Tflops chip, not thing isn’t common and not common mean it will be more expensive. Switch is already $300, you want it become $350 or $400. The general customer won’t spend more than $300 for a portable

          • Fandangle

            No, one phone has used the Tegra x1.

            X2 is brand new.

            I don’t know how much simpler I can make this really. I’ve already dumbed it down so much to the point I think a baby could understand it.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Except it is more expensive and more rarely, to get more 25% performance, you have to pay at least 350$ or even 400$ for a portable. You think general gamer will ready to spend that much?

            2017-11-22 4:00 GMT+07:00 Disqus :

          • Fandangle

            Again, you’re only guessing towards the price. The Tegra X1 isn’t that old in the first place it wouldn’t be that much more expensive as I pointed out earlier and then you started whining that “n-no one uses the X2 because it literally only became available q2 this year.” something Nintendo could have used if they launched the switch a few months later. It could have then better competed with the PS4, it could have had better ports, it could have had a better launch, it could have been better in general. These are simple facts and it still would have been the cheapest console on the market.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Nope, you are speculating, no different than me. It doesn’t have to compete with ps4 nor Xbox 1. Switch is a portable target different market compared to ps4. People who want graphics and power get ps4/Xbox 1. People who don’t have time to sit in front of TV all day can grab switch. Home console belong to Sony/Microsoft with power technology, Nintendo hav no interest in that thing, they do their own thing. If Switch is just another home console like ps4/Xbox 1, it will loose for sure. Look at N64/ps1 or GameCube/Ps2, n64/GameCube are stronger but failed hard. Home Console of Nintendo is already finished, but handheld is a different story when all their handhelds crush competitors, even the most successful portable outside Nintendo – PSP – is not even close to DS

          • Fandangle

            I’m making an educated assumption based on the fact that the tegra x2 was announced literally a month before the switch and the X1 was only out about a year at that point, meaning at the time of the switch’s production they would have basically been paying full price for the x1.

            Unless… Nintendo was rushing it out the door and only decided on the tegra x1 which would explain all the hardware problems they had with launch hardware.

            As for your other point about hardware not being important to a console. I’d agree with you if this wasn’t another attempt on Nintendo’s attempt at competing with sony. When you want to compete directly with another company you need to offer a competing product. The wii did the pretty well by offering something decidedly different. But the switch isn’t competing on the basis of being different they’re competing on the basis of being a portable version of a console.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            And if i’m a fanboy then you are a clueless hater

          • Fandangle

            Nah, you’re the fanboy who is endlessly sperging out and replying to all my comments with broken english. “All criticism is hate” is a very fanboy perspective to have and I’d suggest you lose it and learn to respect other’s opinions before you try to get into arguments with them.

            I’ll only reply to this one because replying to your 50 other comments is tedious and you’ve pretty much stopped debating and gone pure “insult” mode.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            And you are a fanboy of complain things become the standard like DLC or portable weaker than home console like ps4/xbox 1

          • Fandangle

            I don’t like complaining though. I find it obnoxious because I get dumbrumps like you who will whine at literally anything negative said and do nothing but make bad arguments that fan boys since the beginning of time have made.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            You are the one who bring complain about DLC and Switch is too weak compared to other platforms first

          • Fandangle

            Except I didn’t. I made a joke about how it would be good that the frame rate was better if only frame rate was important to the genre. You’re the one that brought consoles wars into this. Again, you’re being the obnoxious stalker replying to my posts 50 billion times.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            In high speed action game, it matters, 60fps or at least 30fps lock. It can be tolerable in turn base, visual novel adventure and slow-paced game like this game

          • Fandangle

            That was my point. Read the reply chain again, fanboy.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Your point? Like a handheld have to compete with a home console? Yeah, of course I understand

            My point is you don’t even know what you’re arguing about and you’re literally just out to pick fights with people.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Full price of X1 is still cheaper than X2 full price and increase the price of a portable is committing suicide when almost no one will spend more than 300$ for a handheld. Your assumption mean nothing without proof, I can also assume if Switch is more powerful and a full home console, it will have the same fate as GameCube based on history

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Yeah, like your point who always said all Nintendo did is wrong, defend them are fanboy. All their games are rush cash cow, if you don’t buy it, then just do it, comment here is meaningless, Nintendo will change for “better” because that is the perfect standard you setted

          • Fandangle

            Literally never said any of that, buddy. My original comment was making fun of a game on a nintendo system. You’re the one equating that to me making fun of nintendo.

            Good job, you’re now the most retarded fanboy I’ve ever met. Look, it’s been pretty hilarious dealing with you but it’s kind of losing it’s charm at this point. You’re not providing enough laughs anymore and I’m just kind of bored at humoring you so you probably wont get a response after this. Have fun with your funposting though. Hope you get better at inciting console wars though because you’re really bad at arguing in general, and being good at it makes a good base for your kind of trolling. Or at least I hope to god it’s trolling because if you’re serious about most of this then give your family my condolences.

          • Nhat Anh Hoang

            Don’t worry, i’m just seriously make fun of you and will continue

            3ds isn’t 4 hours, i play Kid Icarus Uprising on 3ds and last only 3 hours, unless you are saying New 3ds which last 4 hours. And respectable battery for a modern portable is vita 2000 which last 6 hours, though vita graphic only = early ps3 at best

            3DS’ official minimum batter life is 3 hours as I told you in this comment. It’s not 4.

            Here’s a screenshot where you say it’s 4 hours. Just in case you edit your post.

          • Fandangle

            My bad. Still a whole hour more than the switch. They also improved It to 3.5 for the N3DS model and they added a replaceable battery to it. My point was they’re regressing and not offering options for people who don’t want to settle for their horrible design decisions.

            I’ll wait for the inevitable revision.

  • why would you play this and not arkham asylum

    • TruExtent

      Different styles. I played both and enjoyed them both immensely for what they are. Arkham is more focused on exploring alongside a well polished combat system. Telltale’s game is solely focused on telling a cinematic story tailored to how you want it to play out alongside some light puzzle solving sequences. I played Arkham for a more intense experience and Telltale’s game for a relaxed experience. Both were fantastic at pulling off what they intended to do.

      • arkham’s story was good
        i stayed up all night playing it the first time i put in the disc

        • TruExtent

          Totally agree. Both Asylum and City had fantastic stories, loved Asylum’s set up and City’s ending. Also, Mark Hamill’s Joker is scary and hilarious just like in the Animated Series, one of the best parts of all the Arkham games. (I haven’t tried Origins yet and REALLY need to finish up Knight.)

  • link2metroid

    It looks way better on PS4. I won’t be supporting this watered down rip-off version on Switch. It can be bought for a fraction elsewhere. When it’s similarly priced on Switch I might buy it, it’ll still look and run worse though.
