i play warframe, nothing in that twitter video or the trailer can't be done on Switch
Warframe looks excellent and you're right--this does kind of take after that visually. Switch can definitely handle this--not to mention you can see the pop-in. Didn't notice it until after the 4th time I watched, but it's there. Unsure why people can't believe this is Switch.

Series X player here and that video looked tangibly Switch to me, so that is really helpful. Pop in, shimmering lines, foggy distance. Not saying those as bad things, christ it is great to have NMS on Switch. I'll be getting it.

Because the ongoing narrative has mutated from "the switch is less powerful than the other consoles" to "the switch is as powerful as a toaster" over time, and now people absolutely low-ball what the switch can actually do.

We still have people all over the internet absolutely convinced the switch can't run PS3 era games, or even PS2 era games, in some cases; which is bonkers to think about.

Wonder if I should start collecting...

But yeah, a physical version is nice. Glad we're not doing a "streaming" or "cloud" version.

I think we're past the phase of 'it must be cloud' thought it was quite annoying to have that come up during the initial reveal. Worst part, a lot of them were from youtubers doing reaction vids who you'd think they should know better.

Well I watched a lot of review videos on this game. Sad to say I don’t think this game is for me. I really want to support the devs and their hard work. However, I don’t want to spend money on a game that will overwhelm me and I put down rather soon.

maybe buy it on sale, it seems kind of like a make it whatever you want type of endless game.
