79/100 on metacritic so far. Not bad at all. It's 720p and 30fps with some downgraded in textures, lighting, and shadows, but looks great on the Switch! It's out tomorrow, Nov 10 btw. If they have patched in motion controls for aiming, I would definitely buy it. Anyone getting this game?

Eventually yes - for Xbox

Looks like a good traditional FPS game which is refreshing today when the focus seems to be on open-world and multiplayer.

Great game, but I already have it on the X1 so I probably wont be buying it again for the switch when I get one.

It's not a fad. It's legit and superior to dual analog aiming if done correctly. It's the preferred way to play in Splatoon 2.

it's not, but you go right ahead and tell yourself that

if there is a time when we lose the option for motion aim because they decide it's not cost-effective or some shit like that, it's decidedly a change for the worse

Really? Do you think Motion controls really offer such a better experience than a standard controller for aiming?

Where's Mariom? I don't see his post here

I have the game on PS4 myself, so I don't see the point in getting it for the Switch. I've played through the main campaign three times and I've enjoyed it more each time I've played it. I just wish they could have patched in some kind of quicksave feature like the original games had (and even the Doom 3 series has).

8.5 on IGN but I feel like games are so overrated that 8.5 is below average. Am I a sick fuck

He appeared on the People tab right around the time the motion control argument got into its swing.

IGN review. Looks pretty good!



It runs at a dynamic 720p resolution btw..

It is a fad. Why do you think the big three dropped it after the last generation? I don't see the ps4 move being a thing. Even the Kinect is dead.

Imo regular controls > motion controls.

Mouse and keyboard Trump's both though.

Because the good ones were buried by shovelware? Also Microsoft's motion is a joke, and Nintendo never drop there's. They've had motion controls since the Wii, and the majority of shooters have supported IR aiming for 3spers and fspers, which is pretty significant. I've played and owned shooters for a dozen games now on the wii and wii u with motion controls,and I can tell you they make a world of a difference and make dual analog feel sluggish in comparison. I haven't even played splatoon 2 yet, when the pros play gyro and it gives them an advantage over dual analog(non aim assisting), you know its good. I'll probably pick up splatoon 2 later. Whenever you get a Switch, buy Splatoon or another game that will support gyro aiming, and you'll see.

I'm hoping we get IR aiming back on the switch though. IR aiming gives blazing fast turn speeds and hipfire shooting.

You know I always wondered how the Wii got so bloated with shovelware when Nintendo was so strict about games being released on the NES and SNES.

But I really feel that if Motion controls were really so much better than a standard controller it would have taken over. The Move would have become way more popular and over taken the DualShock controller. Even the DualShock 3/4 controllers’ six axis feature rarely gets used effectively.

As far as sluggish controls, most games let you increase the sensitivity of the stick movements. Both Halo and Call of duty let you set them so sensitive that even barely moving the stick flips you around in a 360.

I’m not saying motion controls aren’t fun and offer another way to interact with games but I’m not convinced they offer a better experience and advantage over a standard controller.

yes, no question. I don't expect everyone to feel the same way, but I liked them a lot more even back on the Wii. That's why I value having it as an option - not casting aside dual analog altogether just to suit my preferences. I find it a big improvement (closer to mouse/keyboard), so I'll be disappointed if it goes by the wayside.

I used motion aim all throughout Breath of the Wild - it made quick, accurate bow usage much easier than it used to be. It also works in Splatoon 2 from what I've heard, but I haven't played it myself. It worked well in the original, though, so I wouldn't be surprised.

I feel like a controller like the DualShock 4 could bridge the gap between motion controls and standard controllers. With the Six axis movement it could simulate motion aiming. I think this was experimented with for many PS3 titles but it never really took off.

I do have to agree that using motion aiming in BotW is a nice touch.

The only game I ever played that felt clearly improved by motion controls was No More Heroes. I've enjoyed other games that utilized them, of course, but nothing that felt worth investing in it. But, admittedly I never got anything beyond the original Wii. While the ability to point and shoot is both unique and quicker, the accuracy left a lot to be desired. I've heard they improved that with later renditions, but I never used them. As far was Wii controllers versus normal controllers went, I just found having to point at the TV screen to be a bit more uncomfortable.

I wouldn't call it a "fad," but it clearly did not resonate with people in a more meaningful way. And it is still being utilized by Nintendo, which is still doing well. I am appreciative of the fact they're committed to it, because I don't think games should only cater to me personally, so if others prefer motion control, they should have the option.

Does the switch not support motion controls? I don't have one and haven't played one so I'm ignorant in this area. The Kinect could have been better but they didn't implement it really well and didn't support it with any "hardcore" games, just for cruddy reasons. The move feels almost like a ripoff and a complete joke because it also wasn't supported. The other two bombed because they didn't innovate. They kinda jumped on the hype train of the wii and left the motion controls in the dust when they weren't sure how to make it more appealing and couldn't implement it properly.

Yes they do. Most 1st party games have them implemented. Botw, mk8d, arms, Splatoon 2, 1-2 switch, snipper clippers.

Doom had motion controls, but for gestures. Apparently re Revelations 1 and 2 will have for aiming

do you now play on a gaming PC? because all console games are the inferior version. except for the xbox one x I think.


Ill personally be picking up Doom on the switch when ever I get one. Ill be buying a lot of the "inferior" versions of 3rd party games as well.

Mostly because I dont have the income to own all 3 consoles. Even if I did there is not enough there to warrant the purchase of all 3....

Game wise, I feel like there are enough exclusives and benefits to own all 3 systems. But I can understand that being too expensive. But I’ve always tried to own all the systems so I could enjoy any great game that came out.

PC has been my primary gaming platform for at least 3 years now.

Not necessarily true; Arkham Knight, Nier Automata, Dark Souls, etc.

That's great, it's a fantastic game and shouldn't be missed. Speaking for myself though, playing a fast-paced, highly-optimised FPS on a platform that cuts its performance almost in half -for twice the price - is unappealing.

would you really buy one console to play all those games thoough?

In this case it would be 3 different consoles.
