      1. You’re gonna shame someone for buying physical? lol good luck selling your digital copies and losing all your games if your Switch is ever broken… great debate… Physical and Digital should co-exist. Some games are very nice to have saved on the console, definitely not all.

      2. Thing is, there’s something called limited storage, and extra storage costs moolah, so it makes sense that people would like to save some of that limited digital space by getting physical cartridges that already have an allotted space we like to call removable storage. With this system we can place these cartridges into the system only when we want to play them and replace them with others when needed. It’s a very foreign concept, I know.

      3. Can you really blame them, though? Switch’s Internal memory is shit & the only option for extra storage is micro SD Cards which are more expensive than external HDDs if you want to buy one with more data. A 200GB micro SD card costs around the same price as a 1TB external hard drive, so micro SD cards can get pretty pricey if you go all digital on Switch and are getting a ton of games for it. (Which is why I’m limiting the games I get on a Switch to exclusives since I do intend to go mostly digital. For everything else, there is Steam, PS4, & Xbox.)

  1. Cool, hope we can get a free trail or demo, not sure if I wanna risk it.
    Still crazy Switch can run this so I like a demo to be sure.

      1. The Android, IOS version look and run pretty well, so I’m sure the switch version will look pretty similar to it’s mobile counterpart if not better

  2. I’ve played this game, well over 150 hours into it, but not by choice. My sister for some ungawdly reason that I can’t discern, has bought and forced me to play this horrendous game with her and EVERY. SINGLE. EXPANSION. that they came out with. The developers don’t care about making a fun game, they care only about money and it shows by making this game as poorly done and as glitchy as it can be.

    It follows the same formula that EA, Ubisoft, and other big wigs follow after just to increase the bottom line: Make the game as quickly as possible and release patches later that barely help, except in this case, it’s REALLY BAD. No really, this game is a mish mash of Dinosaurs, Minecraft type mechanics, and farming/breeding type mechanics. I know it sounds interesting on paper, but they literally do in the least effective, least creative, and least enjoyable manner. If you dislike level grinding, babysitting, and other such monotonous, tedious tasks, then you will HATE half of the mechanics in this game! That’s really what half the game is is waiting around for hours (not exaggerating) for one dino to tame, one crop to grow, one this or that, and no, having others to play with you online does very little to alleviate the boredom. The game design is so horrendous, it’s so counter-productive, it’s so mind-numbing. Describing this game as rough around the edges is the under-statement of the year; this “game” is nothing BUT rough edges.

    There is absolutely NO visable attempts made by the developers to rectify the poorly balanced systems in this game, or to add life to the world, or to make the dino A.I. better, or anything. Your pet dinos will run off into other directions when they’re supposed to follow you, and then get stuck in a rock or the ground. Things that not even EA would allow to remain unrefined in their releases are the standard in this game. There is not a single feature, function, or mechanic that works in a good way. Studying game design, I know a thing or two about making a balanced game, or at least one where its different parts will function and flow with one another, and if I were grading this game in that regard, I would look to see if there’s any grade lower than an “F” to give it.

    And the bugs, oh my goodness, the friggin’ BUGS In this game! I’m not only talking about bugs like “I fell through the floor into virtual oblivion” or “My weapon disappeared when I equipped it” Level, I’m talking about “You load up your game and ALL OF YOUR PET DINOSAURS, ALL OF YOUR BUILDINGS, ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT THAT YOU SPENT LITERAL HUNDREDS OF HOURS CRAFTING, TAMING, AND GATHERING DISAPPEARED FOR NO REASON This is a MAJOR game breaking bug that has happened to my sister and I FOUR friggin’ times!!!! Not to mention the bug where your items will fall through the floor, where you will be running and jumping (usually riding a dino away from other dinos trying to kill ya) and then you’ll get stuck half way in the ground (this happens often) and can do nothing but wait to be killed. Your items will have a chance of disappearing at random from your inventory or chests when they’re not supposed to. If you die when your pets are following you, there’s a chance that your pet will permanently despawn. If you save while riding a dino that’s flying (or if the game saves for you) and you happen to die (or your pet if you don’t want it to stay dead) you will load the game falling from your dino and die. The crafting mechanics will suddenly change how they work when you’re in the middle of crafting, making your buildings look ugly and like the work of a buffoon. These aren’t even 1/4th the problems with this game’s bugginess. Mix this with the piss poor game design, and you got yourself a steaming pile of S*** that’s been shaped into the shape of a virtual butt plug that they demand you pay money for.

    I CANNOT recommend AGAINST this game enough! I know it’s an indy company, but either they’re the most incompetent company of all time or they don’t care. It’s become yet ANOTHER example of when a smaller company gets a popular game and they take steps to AVOID making a good game and just try to make a cash cow that has no soul, heart, or love behind it. They only care about making their marketing and their graphics good (and with that latter one, that’s only if you’re playing the pc version, console version look like an upscaled ps2 game) so that they can trick you into buying their vomit. I still cannot fathom why my sister still plays that game (She’s obsessed with dinosaurs and creature-taming games but still, even SHE is constantly groaning and complaining about this game, but still plays it for some gawd forsaken reason) Please, do yourself a favor and put your money ELSEWHERE. It would be better spent if you bought The Wand of Gamelon or Action 52, because at least you could resell those games for a higher price.
