Holy crap. Witcher 3 on ARM system? That's very cool.
Another interesting thing is that Saber interactive is on the roll this year with all of the big internal and outsourced projects. No wonder they had no time to fix QC netcode for Tim Willits )))
Now I have an unexpected itch for a used Switch.

You would enjoy it way more on your PC. It is an absolutely beautiful game at 4K or 1440P.

Looks like it.

This game will require a MicroSD card with 20GB free on it, but that's not a big deal. MSD cards are cheap these days.

That doesn't mean that it will not be an enjoyable game/experience.

Put simply, yes. "Ugly" is a fully subjective term. Example, I think Final Fantasy 7 is one of the most sloppy and ugly games ever made because it's little more than a hodge-podge of very different graphical styles and technologies slapped together in one game.

Careful now the two of you, your PC snobbery is showing...

There is absolutely nothing subjective about lower resolutions and settings. We aren't talking about another game that would be for instance different stylistically or something of the sort. Same game, same engine, lower graphical effects hence uglier. That's as objective as it can get, try again :)

i have a switch and love it,i really do.
but my main concern will be the framerates.think it will struggle in certain areas like novigrad for example.
as long as they can maintain a steady 30fps i will be happy.
