    Both look beautiful. My main concern is, have they made improvements in line with reviewer and fan feedback after the XB1/PS4/PC release, and does it make it a more enjoyable game?

      You mean as far as bug fixes? From my understanding, the Switch version comes with all the current patches. Maybe more, dunno.

        I would be happy if they gave a bit more direction and indication on what powers could be used where, like Rare did in B-K. Improved camera controls. No frame rate skips around fire and other effects. And improve those Rextro minigames.

          They would have to be improvements in other versions of the game to make it fair. So I wouldn’t count on it.

    Why do these videos need to be made? Does someone really care if one version of the game is prettier than the other? They seem like “Ha ha, look how this game is compared to your NINTENDO garbage!”

      Because fanboy-driven console wars exist, that’s why.

      People love pointing and laughing at things

      Videos like this are what convince people who’ve bought the X1X that they made a good purchase.

      Gentle ribbing aside, videos like this are one of the reasons that the Switch is doing so well. I think you’re looking at this from the wrong perspective. It’s not “Look at how crappy your Nintendo toy is!”. More like, it’s “Wow, a handheld can play the same game with few compromises.”

      Unless the Switch version is a buggy mess, I think that a comparison video is going to convince a person to buy the Switch version more than the non-hybrid competition. After all, a person’s biggest concern if picking up the Switch version is “will it still look good?” And in most cases, the answer is “yes”.

      I just find it interesting. Unless a specific version is just good awful like PS3 vs 360 and Wii u Bayonetta awful I’ll never pick a version based solely off of graphics comparisons but it’s still cool to see. Especially digital foundry with how in depths they get

      They get way more oxygen than they deserve. Video games “””journalism””” is pretty bad, mostly based around click-bait or hit pieces for clicks.

    It looks good and runs good but such a terrible price tag.

    • Indielink

      It’s 20 bucks per game. That’s honestly a pretty damn good price tag.
