A great RPG indeed, but that genre is designed for pc/mouse, people will enjoy far less through controllers

I used to think the same about Diablo, but Diablo III was far more enjoyable on consoles than PC. Maybe it was designed with consoles in mind, though.

Nah. I prefer controllers over mouse to be honest. Obviously, you feel the differed way. Not everyone agreed with you. I can't wait for this one on Switch!

Awesome, I've been waiting for a classic RPG like this for the switch to keep me busy until we get Baldur's Gate 3. Not sure how I feel about playing with joycons, but hopefully they did a good job porting the interface.

Diablo I Playstation port was inferior to the PC version. There is a homemade port of Diablo I for the Switch that's decent and II seems to not have console version in sight.

I don't get Digital Only games for the switch because unlike with the PS3 and PS4, you can't make backups.

Loading screens on this game takes forever on the PS4. I wonder how they dealt with the fact that you get A LOT of text to read coupled with a small screen in handheld mode (and even worse on the soon to come switch lite).

I can only imagine what a torture it should be to play PoE on a Switch. Too bad for those who'll dare, if anyone.

Or get to press button A 80 times a minute for each single dialogue because font size had to be this big.

Edit: Considering the 5+ minutes loading screns this game will likely have on a switch, at least there is plenty of time to eat carrots and what not for those who dare to try.

This. I hate how devs don't seem to understand the need to adjust font sizes in their games while in portable mode.

I can imagine with all the dialogue and text PoE has this will be an absolute nightmare to play when undocked, which is a shame because PoE is an excellent game IMO.
