    Assassin's Creed Odyssey got announced for the Switch


    the cloud version, which means we will have to stream it from their servers.

    So my question, how will it possible for us to make a backup of the game to play on the SX OS for example, or can we even do anything with it in the first place?

    I have a feeling that soon we will start seeing more and more cloud games that require more power. Soon we will start getting more and more 3rd party games, at the expense of cloud versions.

    EDIT: Any other options apart from Streaming from a PC? Not many people have a powerful gaming PC. Unless of it was possible to partially use the power of a laptop and your switch.

    Easy, buy the game on Steam/PC, and stream it to the Switch when an streaming official app/homebrew app comes out :)

    Buy a PS4/XBOX ONE. Why would anyone play on a Nintendo console? That's a stupid choice to make. :yayps3::yayone:

    There isn't a way to dump a game if you never have access to it in the first place.
    (I honestly doubt it's even in switch format, they're probably just streaming an optimized PC version)

    The solution here like others have mentioned is to either pay the fee to have it streamed to your Switch, or wait for a homebrew streaming application so you can stream it from a PC.

    Aah, unfortunately don’t have a powerful PC.

    My Switch is the only device that is capable of playing video games

    I meant what about backups?

    And more importantly, if I have a banned system?

    because if i wanted 30 FPS to get more than 1080p, i would limit my framerate on my PC.

    I don't think Rainway is ever coming. Nintendo never greenlit their project to go to the Switch, and the app has been in development for ages at this point (they are in hiatus for the Switch version for that reason). I think all we can do is wait for someone to do some homebrew that does the same function as Rainway.

    i remind you, that this is the nintendo switch section, if you dont like the system, i dont really know what are you doing here. That's a stupid choice to make.

    PC or another console.. Even if we could pirate these cloud games, it'd be a waste of effort and time as they'll objectively run terribly unless you have a stellar connection to the hosting server/PC.
