What Remains of Edith Finch (Switch): COMPLETED!

It’s two years since I played this on the PS4, and having picked it up for just One United States Pound for the Switch, I thought it was high time I played it again.

Most of the story I’d remembered, but the detail I’d forgotten. There was a lot of “oh yeah! I remember that!” while I played. And it’s still good, there are still great toilets, and it’s still the same game it always was.

What I did expect was a graphical downgrade, especially since I played it handheld. And it appeared that was what I got – it just wasn’t as impressive as I remembered. What I didn’t expect was for this to be mostly faulty memory! I’d taken screenshots of the PS4 game at the time and comparing these to what I’ve just played, there’s very little in it. In fact, the only really difference was that on the Switch, everything was just a bit too dark, even with the game’s brightness setting up full. Maybe that was intentional for performance reasons (although bright scenes were still bright, so probably not), or perhaps it’s because it was in handheld mode, who knows.

Oh, and somehow I totally missed Gus’ story so had to replay that bit at the end. I didn’t even realise that was possible!
