      1. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

        ||I don’t accept filth, but since High Command accepted it then so be it…||

    1. 1. Battlefront 2 Dev teased a possible port in the future for the Switch
      2. A Way Out hasn’t really got any confirmed platforms or release date, but devs seem interested in Switch.
      3. Fifa 18 is still going to be more advanced on Switch than on PS3 and Xbox 360.

      1. 1. nop
        3. is gonna be more advance than the gameboy color also? wow
        4.Are you telling me switch have a hance to get these games? Even if he get them. Do you realise these games i mention are not only the games i meant.? These games i mention are representing the whole package. All these games switch wont get. while Ps4 and xbox have. Not just battlefront.

      1. I just said “fuck it” and began calling American football “Handball”, now everyone gives me the “what the fuck” look every time I say it which technically it is handball because they are holding the damn ball all the time lol:D

  1. Where’s Super Prison Bros. and Star Wars Fan Service Explosion on Switch? Those were the only two notable games their presentation had.

      1. “Here we have an engine that can scale from toasters to tianhe-2.
        But Nintendo platforms can not run it”
        They should have just put in the extra work, if they ported the engine, any game after that would be a lot less painful to port and would show at least a level of commitment.

      2. This is actually for Petric22, Dice has to free up resources for a small team to convert the engine to use on the Switch. They don’t have people that can be put on that project. The studio that made FIFA 18 on Switch used what they could to make a new engine for Switch. When or If the executives at EA decide that Nintendo Switch should have the Frostbite engine then they will put it on there.

  2. Well, it can’t be bad. It was already solid on PS3, no? This one should be better.
    I don’t like EA, though I don’t like to spit on anyone’s work. There are people involved in this game, other than EA.

  3. A Way Out definitely looks like the type of game I’d like. Though the character models don’t look nearly as good as those in The Last Of Us or Uncharted 4 (though it’s probably not polished yet). This is probably the first EA game I’ve ever felt interested in.

  4. The only game that caught my eye was Anthem, but I think that’s either gonna be a huge Destiny ripoff that’s online only and riddled with micro transactions or an Overwatch meets Battlefield carbon copy riddled with micro transactions. Either way EA will release a bunch of disappointments in the future.
