    this comment just shows how you dont know how games work.. doom is 720p docked or undocked(with dynamic resolution scalling to avoid lag like manny games use nowadays) so theres no more memory or recources being spent... the switch just upscales it to 1080p and since the gpu is upclocked by a good margin the upscalling process doesnt do any diference and still saves more gpu power for whatever the game wants, doom is probably more heavy on cpu than gpu wich is why they dont make it up the resolution on docked and decide to stay the same and maybe give you a more stable fps.

    Yeah, that would be like saying that hooking up a Nintendo 64 to a 55" 4K TV would make it output anything more than 240i.

    while it doesnt it would be amazing if it did since n64 looks really blury on hd tvs :P let alone 4k.

    still hope someay we get a clone n64 with atleast 1080p display :P, i know there are some modded n64 consoles but the modded hdmi is still preety weak, i just want a clone or even a retron console using emulation or not that actualy reads my cartriges and plays them :P

    Emulators. They can increase internal resolution.

    Retroarch. Megaman 2 through Wii U retroarch looks sharper than Megaman Aniversary collection GC output through Wii U.

    Would be cool to use it on a game that would fit the resolution such as Cuphead but I don’t know any logical reason to why they implemented it

    A better comparison would be the WII U virtual console Mega man 2, not Mega Man Anniversary collection. :mellow:

    I honestly don't know, it is a HD console with only HDMI port, so having a 480P resolution didn't seem to make sense unless there was some good reason. Every other system including wii u has component cable or AV cables. So there probably was a need for it if someone was not using a HDTV, but HDMI is mostly used for HDTV so it stuck me as surprise.:unsure:

    You only get lag if your tv is doing the upscaling and if it has a crappy upscaler.
    But the switch is doing the upscaling which mean less your tv has to process and less lag.
    If it was over cooked then it wouldn't work any more. :rofl2:

    No, I'm comparing different resolutions. Comparing the difference between increasing internal resolution and upscaling. Upscaling will look less sharp, which is why I used the Megman Anniversary Game cube example.

    I am quite disappointed with Mario Odyssey. It feels like another 3D World/3D Land kind of limitation. There was so much hype for it being the next 'Big Mario' game but to me it didn't cut the cake. I hope to get into Xenoblade, so far I hear nothing but good about it. Not surprised about Doom performance though. Does the patch make it perform better?

    I think it's one of the better Mario games. 3D World was terrible, and could pass for 3D Land DLC.. I never cared for the Galaxy Games.. Odyssey gave me a SM64 like freedom to just go where I wanted. No central hubs or map outside of the Odyssey Destination. Just go. I do wish they would have expanded some of the world's. So much wasted space.

    Yeah the galaxy games gave me a headache at times, too many rotating camera angles. Are you a fan of the moon collecting mechanic?

    Its tedious at times, but something to keep me going. It's better than the classic "reach the end" shtick..

    Nope, it has more power that way ;) The CPU/ GPU are then not locked.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    It runs practically perfectly. Very very minor fps drops at times. Going to restate this. I played it, beat it, etc. OP is just super sensitive and overreacting toward minor fps drops and is just spreading lies. Let's let this thread die.

    Jezus the fanboyism in this thread is unbelievable.
    Yes it runs most of the time 360p and NOT 720p( It starts out at 720p but runs 360p most of the time) like has been stated in the digital foundry video at 3:30. Don't believe it well watch the video at 3:30
    Secondly there are frame drops when a multitude of enemies pop up. Maybe those fps drops are less noticeable when playing handheld but they are there as seen in the DF video and in plenty other videos.
    It is an amazing game on the go !
    But calling people out liars and saying ''ey you're spreading lies because your opinion doesn't allign with my **** sucking Nintendo opinion'' Is just bullshit.
    Does the game have issues on the switch ? Yes it does ! Is the game amazing on the go ? Yes it is.

    Anyway, I'm still amazed at how well they optimized the game and true to its content rather than a bad port or spin-off.

    Let's just hope the next iteration of Switch will improve consistent FPS in those heavy games.
