From what I've heard Jimmers, the motion controls are pretty good... You know you want to.

If I know Jimbob as well as I think I do, that's the one thing that'll put him off!

You didn't even break the old limit, let alone the new one.

I remember Skyrim and Skyward Sword came out around the same time, if not the same day!

Close and so was LA Noire, looking back SM3DL and Skyward would have been reasons why I missed both LA Noire and Skyrim all those years ago.

I remember Mario and Zelda coming out on the same day, that was mad.

It was typical Nintendo bring everything out at the same time, thankfully with the Switch been much better but could have maybe given Skyrim and more importantly Fire Emblem Warriors breathing room.

Nah, they've had the "got no games" stigma so bad before they need to get right out in front on Switch with games games games games games. Its going well for them, by all accounts

Confused as I'm pretty much agreeing with you as they have game after game and been spread out but FEW 5 days before Mario killed that game, when they could have waited for a better slot and still have a game a month.

Warriors games are quite niche though eh? So i don't see how it would have helped anymore.

They are but I think Hyrule did much better, you could argue lack of games on Wii U and Zelda is bigger then Fire Emblem but still would have been nice to see it do better then it did and that bad release timing couldn't have helped.

Nah, I reckon FEW was dead in the water when it touched down in the West, and Nintendo probably recognised this. If HW didn't do all that well, and you're finding an even more niche franchise...

...why are we talking about (We Happy) FEW in a Skyrim thread again?

Also, what was it Jimbob (I think) called Skyrim ages ago? Heaven-Rudethingtodowithatongue or something like that?

That should have been did not didn't Balla and you might be right taht it was never going to do well in the West.

Can we get We Happy Few on Switch?

Blimey, what's going on here? Well: We Happy Few is secretly a Skyrim mod, of course Nah nah!

Yeah, I'm not fussed about the motion controls, me. I dare you to play as an archer for 200 hours just doing the motion control. Fus-ro-d-arm injury. But the game itself? Maybe in a year or something. It still seems too fresh in the memory...

Is it just me or is this version quite a lot darker than previous versions of the game? and missing the option to adjust brightness that I'm pretty sure all the other versions of the game had? I've been having to avoid caves and wait through nights because I can't see anything

Is that maybe something to do with the game using a different version closer to the Special Edition? Not a clue, mind - only guessing.
