@Ralizah True.

Though I think most people complained about the fact that the shorelines seem to match Kanto 1 to 1. Straight angles and corners. That kinda confirms a fixed camera angle. I'm fine with that, but I know some expected BOTW 2.0.

@Octane As amazing as Pokemon: BotW Edition would be, I don't believe for a second that GameFreak is anywhere near competent enough to pull it off. Honestly, I'll be impressed if it's native resolution on the handheld and maintains a locked framerate.

@Ralizah I saw your comment on the Pokemon GO integration on the NLife article.

The weird thing is. I was tutoring some students today, and I overheard them talking about Pokemon GO. They were casually talking about talking a walk during lunch break to visit a gym on the campus.

That's crazy, it's still a thing after nearly two years! And they weren't even the people I expected to play Pokemon GO to begin with.

@Octane Oh yeah. It might not be a 'cultural event' anymore, and there might not be roving bands of people catching Pokemon everywhere and making the news these days, but the game still updates semi-regularly, and there are a shocking number of people still playing it off and on.

It only makes sense to expect Pokemon Go integration with the Switch game.

With that said, a balance needs to be struck. The game also needs to be fully playable and enjoyable without needing to sync it to Pokemon Go. And I think it probably will be. Surely Game Freak is smart enough to realize that a stripped down Pokemon game wouldn't work as well on Switch as it would on a smart device.

@Ralizah Yeah, I hope it's all optional. I deleted Pokemon GO a long time ago, a few days after it came out actually, hah!

@Octane @Ralizah I guess my major problem was the low resolution textures and total lack of texture filtering in the 3DS games. The 3DS is certainly no powerhouse, but even then it felt like Game Freak weren't exactly pushing the envelope. The beautiful 3D Pokémon models were done by Creatures weren't they? Obviously the Switch is capable of much more, but as long as the new game looks polished, crisp and runs flawlessly (at that level, I experienced nothing less than 60fps), then I won't complain.

@mookysam It's weird when Capcom made a better looking Pokemon game than Nintendo on the 3DS

I wish they ported that game to Switch, it looks very good.

And yeah, Creatures made the 3D models for Pokemon XY, SM, Pokemon GO, and all the other games they appeared in. It wouldn't surprise me if any game was developed in high resolution on the 3DS, and they just had to scale it down in the down until it was playable at 30fps.

Nice to know I am to this day the only person alive who is interested in Sushi Striker.

I think it looks good shrug

If Pokemon Switch has any kind of intrusive Pokemon Go integration - and I don't mean a couple of extras, I mean there's Pokemon you can't get without it, or other stuff - then I'm legit selling my Switch.

Tad extreme.

Sounds like you want to sell it regardless and simply need a reason.

I mean I dont think the system is particularly "good" either but at least it gets some use unlike my 360 did that I sold.

Actually, a little quote for you, as it feels relevant to situation.

You bought a Switch for old games that arent coming, its all old ports and the odd new interesting first party title that you may or may not enjoy.

At this point in the life of a system you can see its path, this is as good as itll get. Plus buying something "hoping" you get what you want isnt too wise, after all:

@YummyHappyPills Buying on "hope" is kind of what the video game console industry is built on. The first year of the PS4 wasn't spectacular exclusive wise, but I bought my PS4 close to launch, because I hoped we'd get to see some mind blowing video game experiences later on. And we did.

Still happy I sold my 3DS, though. Never missed it once.

@Octane There are kids, students and adults gathering multiple times each day right by my rear window playing Pokemon Go. That game is still very much alive on sunny days.

I never sell consoles. There's always something I'm going to want to play or replay on it at some point.

@Ralizah I have only ever sold one console - well one that I didn't have an alternative version and no intention of replacing - and that was a Nintendo - the Nintendo Virtual Boy. The last console I actually sold though was an Xbox 360 Elite but as I had replaced it with the Xbox 360 Slim (with Kinect), I didn't need 2 360's (3 if I hadn't sold my standard 360 for the Elite). I also traded in my Original Black Xbox for a crystal Xbox (I still have) but those are the only consoles/gaming devices I have sold to date. All my others I still have, gave to my kids or ended up going to the tip.

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

I really had no problem selling my 3DS and giving away my Wii. Sure, they had a few nice games, but I'm not keeping them for 1 or 2. I don't have the storage room and also feel like they're better off with someone else enjoying them.

Xbox/Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2/PlayStation 3, that's a different story. They have a great library games to revisit.

Ralizah

@BAMozzy Oh, sure, yeah, I've sold consoles when I've replaced them with something better before. Like I sold my 3DS XL when I upgraded to a New 3DS.

Otherwise, they go into retirement. Some will likely never come out of retirement, like my OG Xbox, which was an awful console with an awful, awful controller (just saw one of those Duke controllers floating around our game room last night as I was cleaning it up). I didn't like the 360 very much, but until I find something else that can play Viva Pinata (besides an Xbone, which I will never buy), I'm not getting rid of it.

@Ralizah Well the DS did have a Viva Pinata game on there called Pocket Paradise. Don't know how good it is though, but it was made by Rare as well.

@KratosMD Oh, I know. It's not nearly as good as the Xbox games. Believe me, I was ecstatic when I thought there was a full fat Viva Pinata game on the go.

Apparently it released on the PC at some point, but I've never been able to find a copy.

@Ralizah I liked the OG Xbox - was very innovative and the design was unique - not understated at all. The Duke was superb - maybe a bit big but compared to these tiny little hand cramping efforts of the DS, it was a revolution for those of us with 'adult' hands. Its basic design has stayed with us and whilst it has reduced in size, the Xbox controllers are regarded as the best and even copied by Nintendo too. The 360 was a great console as well and its 'flexibility' in the way it was built was what contributed to its success and why games ran better on it too. I know Sony simplified their design for the PS4 and also went bigger than MS on the GPU side which has given them the advantage this generation. I still have my OG Xbox, XB360 Slim (with Kinect), PS3 60GB Phat, PS3 Slim, XB1 (with Kinect), XB1S and OG PS4 as well as the Project Scorpio X and PS4 Pro. I also think I still have a Gameboy Color in the cupboard too but all my other gaming devices were either donated to the kids or scrapped when I downsized to a smaller house.

As I said though, the only console I have sold that I had no intention of replacing is my Nintendo Virtual Boy. That would probably be worth double (or more) today (boxed, as new with a few boxed games and ALL paperwork, etc intact) but that was migraine inducing for me and I couldn't play more than a few minutes without the pain starting.

@Kidfried Same. I've sold every Nintendo console. Except my DSi which I just threw out because I couldn't be bothered to sell it. And my Wii which for some reason I put in a cupboard and then left there for years without realising. I doubt it's worth much.

@johncalmc @Kidfried I have to ask why you two are buying these consoles from this company just to sell them because one or two games aren't worth keeping a system for.

If this keeps happening, why do you keep buying them? Are you aware of the definition of insanity?

I mean it's your money, do what you want with it, but it seems odd to keep buying and selling their systems because you are inevitably dissatisfied.
