    I got screwed with RiME on the Switch as the game is pretty much unplayable so if these other devs of Yooka Laylee make something similar.. they can go GFY. No wonder they don't need game testers these days.

    not only that but its digital only and parents wont offer this game to their kids onc hristmas becuase it isnt on the stores they will all pick mario odissey most likely or any other game they see on the selfs.

    i mean there is no reason why they arent doing phisical, the switch has so manny indie phisical copys its to be ashamed

    i mean swithc has
    tiny barbarian
    rime
    88 heroes
    farming sim
    troll and I
    bindisng of isaac
    unbox
    lumo
    poi
    ginger
    ...

    srs the indies are the ones releasing more phisical copys on swithc rather than AAA studios and yet after 7 motnhs delay they still release digital only its a shame, it wont get my money unless i see a phisical release if they dont do it i will just buy the ps4 version eventualy.

    They just did a Q&A over at Nintendo life, and claim that the Switch version is actually the best running version of the game since they took the time to optimize it specifically for that system. I mean, I'll believe it when I see it, but they're claim is that this runs better than on the other systems.

    900p 60fps? nice
    Unplayable? it has some framedrops but it´s definitively not unplayable, that game runs badly/poorly regardless of the system it´s running on anyway

    I'm not surprised it took this long.

    If they aren't making a physical release it means that they believe that they won't sell that many copies.

    I kickstarted this game and never switched to a different system so I'll be getting this automatically.

    If you never switched to a different system, it should have defaulted to sending you a Steam code, you should check just to be sure.

    Farming Simulator is on the Switch?

    I bought a digital copy of Yooka Laylee (PS4)

    seriously nowadays people see a frame drop and call it unplayable, this generations are so spoiled it hurts, i bet noone of them could play any n64 or ps1 game on original hardware lol, srs n64 and ps1 sometimes made games into slideshows at running under 10 fps, i remenber star wars rogue squadron n64 great game but it had so mauch frame drop the last mission plays at like 9 fps on original n64 i played it recently, or turok games boss fights where the fps just goes to the shitter anytime a boss attacks, srs that were hardcore frame drops and long ones and people still loved the games and got great review, but nowadays if a game has a frame drop here and there its unplayable lol.

    It could be worse. Switch could be getting a port of EA's Battlefront 2 instead.

    EA memes aside... There's no way they'd get that running respectably on the Switch without making it look awful.

    Well, then its outsides would match its insides I guess. Just awful.

    Edit: Whoever has the rights should actually port Battlefront 2 classic. Wouldn't require any graphics downscaling, and it's the better game for sure.

    Which was worse? Might No 9 or Yooka Laylee? Which had higher expectations in your mind?

    Might No. 9 was way worse and, for me, it had higher expectations too. Yooka Laylee is a decent platformer with a good amount of content plagued with some dated mechanics and design elements, but Mighty No. 9 is a horrible amalgamation of the worst Megaman games bogged down with a whole truck-load of new sludge.

    Pretty much. They took more from what made BK/BT bad than what made it charming and too much from BT in general. Like the huge world sizes that were empty, lacking enemy variation, poor camera (at launch) and the minigames. All were huge problems in Tooie and continued to be in Yooka
