    that looks amazing.

  • Are my eyes deceiving me (it might be the video), or is this running at a sub-native resolution?

    • TDude73

      720p in tabletop/portable mode.

      • Mihael Keehl

        well that’s the screen’s resolution…. so duh.

        • TDude73

          Relax dude.

      • So it’ll be running at a native resolution in handheld mode then? I guess my eyes are just deceiving me cause it seems like there’s a lack of anti-aliasing going on, which bothers me and I guess makes it look like it’s running sub-native…

          Not sure how you spotted no anti aliasing on this off-screen footage, but Nintendo has a history of no AA, so you may be right

    Well turn me upside down and spin me around, that actually does look good. And with the DLC added, I can only give thumbs up to Bethesda for good conduct on the port.

      Well the Switch is more than capable of running 2011 games, so thankfully it does look good xD

        I wonder if the take-downs are still as bloody as they are on PC.

        • Tlink7

          I don’t see why they wouldn’t be, Skyrim isn’t a Nintendo game. They let Devil’s Turd be gorey, soooo 😀

          • Fore

            True, and T, they could’ve slap-dashed this port y’know.

  • Bring Doom, Wolfenstein & Wolfenstein II, please!!!!

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      and Dishonored 1 and 2

  • Tlink7

    The ”no direct capturing” makes me feel Bethesda is still planning on doing a fair bit of polishing, so that is reassuring, especially when the game already looks quite good 😀

    • robotmaster

      Or they doing a half-assed job and don’t want people to see it during a demo event.

      • jimmy

        Hey, if i can still get dragins fly backwards and corpses walking aroumd as if nothing wrong then it’llstill be worth it lol

      • Tlink7

        That is also a possibility, but, I mean, we’re going to get direct capturing EVENTUALLY, so hiding a sh§tty port doesn’t really do anything. Seeing as the game still has about six months until release, I’m going with my suggestion 😀

  • Puffdaddy

    YEp, this is nice

  • awng782

    Looks pretty darn good IMO
