    Digital distribution is the best dont you know. Always online consoles are even better.

    Got these on disc. Is the frame rate really a reason to get 2 on Switch?

    As far as I'm aware, it seems 2 drops a lot of frames and stays around the 50s a lot of the time. Switch is 1080/60 if I'm not mistaken. You could look at a Digital Foundry comparison video for more info.

    Bayonetta 1 is actually a triple buffered vSync game on Wii U, which means the game doesn't drop frames or cuts them in half in order to mantain the speed, but rather it slows down - which sucks as this is a timing-based combo game. It's not that bad at the beginning but some latter areas and endgame can be downright horrible. The scryscaper level and drowning blimp are a downright tragedy. It's a shame they didn't double buffer instead. It's 1080/60 locked on Switch as far as I'm aware, and the best console version alongside the original 360 version played on a Xbox One X.

    Edit: my bad, it's only 720p on Switch! Wtf!

    I mean there are physical copies and its on Switch now too so this isn't a HUGE loss, just another step in the eventual shutdown of the WiiU. Anyone placing bets on how much more time the eShop has?

    Interesting. Sounds like the PC version might be the way to go for the first game.
