Gaming News Daily

Today we have news concerning a new Switch title that needs patching, a sudden pending game release, a new title for PS Vita, and a chance to manage your own graveyard.

Bloodstained on Switch is a case of release now and patch later

It appears that fans that eagerly awaited Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for Switch are disappointed.   According to numerous sources, the game suffers from several performance issues, and it’s receiving a lot of negative press.  The most balanced opinion available on the web suggests the game is playable on Switch, but it’s hard to recommend it over other systems.

Publisher 505 Games has responded to complaints with the following statement:

“We have been listening to the feedback regarding Switch performance. Our goal is for everyone, regardless of platform, to be able to enjoy the game and have it run smoothly. We want to live up to your, and our, expectations.

Throughout the QA process, we have been addressing performance issues in the game. Update 1.01 was published to Switch prior to launch to add content and improve performance. It did not accomplish as much as we had hoped, and we need to do more.

To address the concerns brought up by the community, we are immediately shifting resources to improve performance and stability for the Switch. You can expect a number of small updates that will improve different areas of the game rather than waiting longer for one big update. We will have more details as we dive into the work.

We thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience.”

I would love to hear what readers think about Bloodstained on Switch.  If you’ve purchased it, how does it play?  Also, how do you feel about publishers releasing underperforming/buggy games only to patch them later?

Terraria is coming to Switch sooner than you think

505 Games have announced that Terraria is coming to Nintendo Switch.  I guess we’re going to have to wait at least a couple of weeks, right?   Nope.  Terraria will be available tomorrow (27th June) on the Switch eShop.

The official announcement from the Terraria forum reads:

“Terraria Switch will be live to the world for digital download in 2 days! We love our fans, and since the game is ready, we figured we would just get it into your hands as soon as possible. It will take us a bit more time to get out the physical retail version, but until then we hope you will enjoy the full game available for download via Nintendo eShop.”

Will you Purchase Terraria for Nintendo Switch?  And how do you feel about sudden release announcements?

Manage your own graveyard in Graveyard Keeper

We recently reviewed Graveyard Keeper on ladiesgamers, and come tomorrow; you’ll be able to purchase the game from the Nintendo eShop.

Our Reviewer Chamzen likes Graveyard Digger a lot. She concluded her review as follows:
“Graveyard Keeper looks lovely with its pixel art graphics. The soundtrack changes depending on what area of the map you’re in. Sometimes there’s music, sometimes the ambient sounds and weather effects: all of this makes the game an inviting world to spend time in, even with its morbid theme.

Caution should be used however as some of the games’ theme and language may be slightly offensive to some, especially the young… Graveyard Keeper is a great addition to the Nintendo Switch, and it seems the life of an undertaker can certainly keep a player busy for hours with a wide array of gameplay activities. “

That’s it for now.  🙂

We love to hear from you!
