I guess gaffers heart is in the right place, but it often spills into excessive territory ("they are not your friends, forsake all of your social circles and find new ones") without any impetus for reflection.

Remember when "She found new D, sorry brah" would have accounted for 49 out of the 50 first replies? Yeah.

Not entirely sure why it was locked either :lol

Lots of weirdos upset about the Doom port on Switch. Switch is pretty much Wii U+ which itself was 360/PS3ish. Unless you're a complete idiot, why would you expect modern AAA games to run on Switch at 60 FPS?

I mean, they got it to run at a stable 60 on base PS4 and even regular XBox One...

So there are still people out there believing that Switch is somewhere in between the Bone and the Quadruple?

I just don't get it. I can only assume it comes from cheerleaders that don't actually own the system, or have any familiarity with Nintendo whatsoever.

I was well impressed that they were going to bother porting it at all. If the frame rate is even close to steady, regardless of the number, I'm fucking in.

You shouldn't buy Nintendo hardware and expect to have anything approaching comparable third party support. Waste of time. Just be glad that the thing is fucking cool, and doesn't seem to have any glaring omissions or flaws.

CPU isn't even relotely in the same ballpark.
More RAM, but crazy OS footprint, and it's slow as fuck RAM.
More "modern" GPU, sure, but rather weak otherwise. Not helped by the above.
Not to mention the fact that this thing needs to feed two screens.

The WiiU tech threads on GAF were hilarious. Timeless classic example of the Nintendo hardware rollercoaster and eternal cycle.

The Switch is actually a pretty well designed piece of hardware (Nvidia probably helped a lot) and positions them well going into the future. Switch 2 in 4-5 years at PS4 levels would be pretty cool to see. The market has spoken - raw power is important, but they're not the most important aspect of a console.

That Doom is even coming to Switch at all speaks volumes about the system's technical flexibility and also Nintendo's improving relationships with third parties (especially western ones.)

Or, as DigitalFoundry said themselves:

With it's graphics, what the fuck do they expect? iD can only do so much with the engine without making it look like a PS2-era game on a Tegra.

Even if Square pulls off Voodoo magic with getting the console/PC version of FF15 on the system (instead of the chibi-rific mobile port) it's gonna be like 15-30FPS itself.

Only Rocket League, which is aiming for 60FPS for good reasons (cross-play) is the only port that is doing 60. And that's because it's not that graphically demanding.

Doom on Switch is pretty cool, but it's not something I'd want to play.

Years ago when smart phones and iPod videos were coming out it was cool to me that they existed. The novelty of watching Simpsons episodes on my creative zen video was amazing. Yet for all the Gundam Seed Destiny and Code Geass episodes I loaded on it I hardly watched them. Same thing happen when I went on a trip and loaded anime unto my iPad. It was older stuff I watched, not something I hadent watched before.

Today I only use my phone and iPads multi media stuff to well read and listen to music. I wouldn't say watch wonder Women on these things or Star Wars episode VIII or even something like Logan Lucky on them. Because I rather have my experince with newer things happen on a better suited hardware. In this case something like a movie theater or my home theater set up.

That's going to kind of be my problem with 3rd party games on the Switch. I rather have those first time playthroughs on better hardware and the novelty of playing them on the go while neat doesn't appeal to me past that. With new movies or games I tend to want to give them my attention and portables I don't find are conductive of that.

I had a vita to play MGS or FFX but I played those games plenty of times so it didn't matter. I didn't have to pay attention and had already experinces them at thier best.

On the train I rather just tune out with music and read something.

The Switch is awesome but you're on dust if you think it ought to run Doom at 60fps.  30fps with good textures and AA will be impressive enough.

Much like the "haha white guy got sexually assaulted" nothing happened after it was reported and mods locked it figuring pointing out that backseat modding is not O-K but leaving the people to make fun of it unbanned.

Apparently you cant be racist or anything as long as the targeted person is white.

I'm surprised you're asking other people to PM mods about a racist post instead of doing it yourself; I mean isn't that kinda your forte? Oh wait nvm, I get it now...


From what I read of the thread I don't think anybody here is denying that what she did was highly inappropriate for somebody in her position or that she shouldn't lose her job for it. Some are just questioning the racism aspect since the baby seems to be white (and I'm not saying 100% that it is but if I was forced to guess I would honestly guess white because of the rosy complexion) and if she should be charged with a crime (and again I'm not saying she shouldn't).

Also I think your statement is pretty disingenuous since I've seen plenty of posters try to justify or defend awful behavior from some black people, like the thread about the guy that body slammed an elderly woman on concrete at a pool party, the one about the teens that let that poor guy drown or more recently the one about rapper xxxtentacion's physical abuse scandal to name a few off the top of my head, you know, since Enzom21 is gonna want those receipts and all. And it's not just my opinion since people caught bans in those threads.

And with that Enzom21 raised his hand, pointed at the two offenders, and they were gone.

The roma situation is weird though, as I understand it they dont really want to change their lifestyle and integrate with local communities and their lifestyle leaves a wake of petty crime and littering behind them. Seems like more of a culture issue than racism. Someone described Irish travelers to me once and I left that conversation thinking they are less tan roma, as the complaints were near identical.

Yeah Roma and travelers want to keep their culture as is

Only difference I can see is that travelers would not take up begging
