Trailer just flies by various locations like they don't want to show a single scene for lack of quality or polish :( Hopefully this is not true and we get gameplay soon.

I've never played any of these games but have always been really curious - this might be the time I jump in!

You can always pause the video. It Iooks pretty good but will probably be locked at 30fps unlike console Redux which are 60.

Can't wait to see how they pull this off. Almost a competition at this point to see who can do the most magical shit on the hardware. So far The Witcher takes the crown.

Yes, I was waiting for the announcement after the leaks but I'm really excited to play a Switch fps game after Doom. I didn't like Wolfenstein but this seems to be a good game by the looks of it. Never played the original versions.

Well this will be my next FPS on switch. Working my way through Youngblood’s right now. Really not a fan of that. Never played these so I’m down.

They are ok shooters. I guess considering that there aren't many on Switch is a nice addition.

We don't know if the graphics are based on the redux version though. Might be as well X360.
I'd imagine they'll use the new current gen assets and lighting model, it's not uncommon for Switch remasters (Skyrim, DDDA, Minecraft, Darksiders, Alien Isolation, etc). Only major one I can think of that didn't was Dark Souls, which ended up being seen as a plus.

Glad to see 4A did this themselves. Shows they actually give a shit about the port. It will be very interesting to see how it performs as 4A should know their engine from top to bottom.

So I guess the physical version is gamestop exclusive then? I don't see it in other stores.

Redux runs at 60 fps locked on current machines, so it's doable without major cutbacks on the Switch

They've already stated that it will have both definitive editions of the games, so, the current gent ones

Hard Pass. Th*Q is involved as a parent company. Not a penny to them.
I'm on the fence now because at what point should we limit this? Like, THQN owns all of Koch Media which has their hand in so much of the EU market, and they keep buying more and more devs and publishers (Milestone Italy was another decent-sized pick-up).

They're the parent company, yes, but it's getting harder to justify the boycott when their association with these are just "they own them", rather than it being them themselves. It's eons better to avoid anything with their name on them (Darksiders for example) than games by one of their many subsidiaries. Plus who knows, they may get a far smaller percentage of money.

Again I'm on the fence. This looks like a terrific effort (on the surface) and I think deserves reward. THQN's fuckery wasn't Koch/Deep Silver's fault and there's nothing they can do about it. They can't just buy themselves out and return to being self-owned I'd assume. Well it'd be awesome, but not realistic at all.

GameStop exclusive in the US, yes. It's the only retailer shown on the official website. I despise ordering from GS, so I'm not sure what I"m going to do. I feel like every third party Switch announcement is a monkey's paw situation.

EU folks can buy it anywhere.

Interesting to think about considering Metro LL was famously cancelled on Wii U. I think the developers even blasted the hardware too.

I never got around to playing LL (and now that I think about it, even beating the first game) so may pick up depending on performance.

seems they said that the Wii U CPU was slow and horrible, the Switch CPU is bounds better than that.

gonna buy this day one. Only played the first Metro on PC and never bothered buying the sequel :D

Well, I still don't want them to have my money, even if it is the smallest amount. They're the companies want to make money, so they need to get rid of people/partners who embraces 8*ch type of places. My responsibility is not to forget.

Ditto. I'm just concerned at it being a futile effort at this point. THQN don't give a fuck clearly. IMO they have an easy solution if they can't legally fire the offending employees (one is on the board of directors also), and that's to just donate a big chunk of money to charities that directly counter that site's beliefs. Support charities helping child abuse victims, victims of the holocaust and such tragedies from the past (and present), support LGBT groups, etc.

That'd send a powerful message and would put their money where their mouth is. They got money to burn with all of these acquisitions, try using it for legit good after that garbage. That'd help tremendously. But them doing nothing is deafening and tells everyone that they want to pretend it didn't happen and hope folks don't care also.

Now it'd be different if I had a crystal ball seeing if they did learn their lesson and would never do a thing like that again.

Only I don't.

That's why they need to SHOW that they've learned their lesson.

However once we get to their subsidiaries that seemingly are pseudo independent (as in THQN don't exactly slap their branding or direct involvement in their games), then their involvement is deluded.

I guess it's what YOU decide to do that's important. Sadly this boycott never amounted to anything and likely never will. That's the worst thing. :/ The week after the incident, folks stopped talking about it. And sadly more companies seemingly are fine with working with them or even allowing themselves to be bought by them which raises... questions.

Ufff, After finishing Alien Isolation this is very welcomed. I hope the port is good.
