XCOM 2 has been my most-desired Switch game since I bought the console. Let's hope performance isn't unbearable.

Launching these all on the same day is pretty dumb, particularly in the case of Bioshock and Borderlands since there’s overlap with those audiences. In for them, though.

Xcom 2 would definately make me consider double-dipping.

One of those "perfect for Switch" titles - performance might be a concern considering how it launched on PC, but let's wait and see.

real curious as to how Borderlands 2 compares to the SHield TV version. hope it's a good port

Nintendo x Take 2 is weird. EA on blast

XCOM 2 is going to be a complete and utter technical nightmare. I hope people wait for impressions before getting suckered into buying it. I just abandoned a playthrough on PS4 Pro with an SSD because it was so fucking miserable to play.

Download required makes basically all of these (for me) not worth it. Add that to them releasing them all on the same day, as well as on the same day as Xenoblade Chronicles: DE and The Last of Us Part II.

Good luck 2K.

Really want to double dip for Xcom2, but I'm not confident in the performance...the other console version is a mass :\ would rather wait for the review.

I passed on War of the Chosen specifically to hold out for a complete XCOM 2 port on Switch back when we found out that Civilization VI was getting a port. Definite buy for me at some point, though perhaps not for the full price at launch.

BioShock and Borderlands are excellent picks for collections. I've had my fill of them on PC and will personally be passing, but they're exactly what 2K should be bringing, and ample reminders of just how much better I found 2K's output relative to the other big western third-party juggernauts in the 2010s (despite the serious problems I had with BioShock Infinite).

Download requirement is a huge problem, though. I don't have the space for these and won't be bumping up my SD storage for some time. And although I would have preferred these physically, there's no reason I'd ever choose to go half-digital over full-digital.

Yup, pretty much me. Xenoblade DE and The Last of Us Part II will be my purchases. That download required tag on these box arts is an instant turn off for me.

Confirmed via Gematsu:

Virtuos is behind both XCOM 2 Collection and Bioshock The Collection

While Borderlands: Legendary Collection is by both Turn Me Up Games and Behavior Interactive.

I'm definitely buying this Club House 51 game, especially if you can play multiplayer on a single screen, there're all the games I love in it!

i might give Bioshock another chance. i tried playing it on PC but the first game had a bug that made it impossible to progress and i just couldn't bring myself to go back to it. it's been long enough now i guess but not sure if it's worth it. don't have any nostalgia for the games (except maybe Infinite).
