Amazing. My Wii U does some really cool s*** that the Switch could never do, hence why I haven't bought one. I also didn't have to pay 300 to get a Switch just for this game, so that was really dope.

The framerate does suck a massive c***ton of ass but that's whatever.

This game was built completely with the Wii U in mind, and I'm grateful I didn't have to buy a new console in order to experience it. And...I feel as though the colors look a lot better on the Wii U.

But I do agree with you...It is incredibly sad that Nintendo didn't have enough faith in this console to trust that it would carry their masterpiece on its own, and that some people were so quick to abandon it for the shiny new toy with inferior display and a lack of services to match the Wii U...In fact, if it weren't for the Switch, we could've had some of the Sheikah Slate's functions mapped to the gamepad!

So, yes, I would like to extend my sympathy to anyone who chose to stoop to the level of such an inferior technological creation. I wish you all a happy, healthy life in light of this travesty of justice, and may a choir of Nimbis escort you to the most esteemed sector of the Overthere, ladies and gentlemen, thank you...and good night.

Meh I was glad they didn’t use the gamepad more. Thing is stupid and the worst parts of the game were the ones where I had to put my pro controller aside and wave the pad around like an idiot trying to move balls through a maze.

Well, what's that have to do with sticking a map on it?

What the heck are you talking about? This version and the Switch one are practically identical in terms of plot, graphic style, and content.

If I could change anything, it might be the option to use a controller for the game and not the gamepad, or at least have something that allows me to turn the blinking "Press here if you want to play on the gamepad" off because I found it a little distracting at times.

In fact, I much prefer to play the game on the gamepad, with the only annoyance and 'not being able to do that' coming into play for the shrines that demand you to use motion control. At least it isn't as bad as Fatal Frame V, which seemed to actually expect me to hold the entire gamepad up in front of my face and go, "Oh, wow! It's like I'm ACTUALLY holding a camera up to my face and trying to take pictures of these ghosts!"

It's like people haven't played both versions or even seen both. They are nearly identical in every way. The Wii U has slightly worse frame rates in a couple of instances/locations, and loads most of the game slightly faster. Beyond that, they're the same. Anyone making grandiose claims one way or the other clearly has never played both versions and has no f***ing clue what they're talking about. Or is simply lying for some idiotic reason. However, on the very unlikely possibility someone actually experiences serious technical issues, you have to assume that it is likely that specific console and not the majority.

Gamepad would have made weapon equipping, item useage, and map checking much quicker. Could have even solved the overpowered meals issue by making food consumption happen in real time from the gamepad screen rather than from pausing. Just like WWHD you would still be able to do everything from a regular controller of course

Ive had no problems with mine at all. Ive had the occasional frame rate drop but ive also had a frame rate boost just now actually. I was fighting a guardian stalker with ancient armor and sword++ and as i was hacking off its legs i swear it was going allot faster.
