I don’t care if ‘The Outer Worlds’ Switch port is bad — pump it in my veins

Today, friends, is a Good Day™:   is being appear on the Nintendo Switch. Excuse me while I slip into my Springsteen jeans and fist-pump for the next three hours.

At this stage in the article, I assume you’re one of two types of people: you either know about   or you don’t. If you’re in the former camp, I give you permission to skim over this part.

Okay, so  is a first-person RPG set in an another reality. It was appear on the Xbox One and PS4 in October of last year (check out our aboriginal review here) and it was made by Obsidian, the same aggregation behind one of the greatest games ever made.

Anyway, this little bivouac gives you a decent idea of what to expect from  

The catechism then is simple: why the fuck am I aflame about this ported game?

I’ve accounting before about how good it feels to own a Nintendo Switch and one of the key points of that commodity is about the wider range of games hitting the system — abnormally after a pretty tepid launch when it came to third party games.

Now, there’s always a lot of furore around ported games, decidedly when they’re moved from a more able animate to a less able one, and  is no exception.

Without accepting into all the details, let me give you the arbitrary that bags of YouTube videos take hours to get to: if you have a PS4 or Xbox One, buy multi-platform games on one of those consoles. They’re going to run better.

Thing is, I only have a Nintendo Switch. And at this stage in the lifecycle of consoles, I see no reason to splash out when a new range is just round the corner (coronavirus dependent, of course).

I haven’t — and apparently will never — play  on PS4, so how it compares to other consoles doesn’t bother me. As long as the game doesn’t run like a total piece of shit (looking at you I’m going to be athrill about diving into the darkly funny open-world chance I’ve been cat-and-mouse for since 

Of course, this doesn’t mean that I’ll accept any old crap when it comes to ports (again, fuck you,  — just that I’m hyped a game I’ve wanted to play since it was appear is now on my animate of choice. And the fact I can play it on the toilet isn’t absolutely bad, either.

Anyway, excuse me — I’ve got a bag of weed, a free weekend, and to get through. Get in my veins.
