Grrrr. From then I'll sit back and wait until the day all original promises are fulfilled. Perhaps checking a bit when the sequel showcases actual gameplay.
Saying that, I kinda hope the style used in the original draft at the start of original kickstarter kicks back

From what I can get from others who has Switch version, the Switch version is "significantly better than the days when it came out, but frame rate issue was still a thing in certain areas"
Also there're Android/IOS versions that recently being ported on mobiles but they're currently missing a few updates from their console counterparts.  (Bloodless in the main quest, and Classic mode, although mobile version save data is 100% compatible with PC save data, and use imported saves Bloodless main quest can be "sorta" playable on the mobile version)

Is Ritual of the Night on Switch still a dumpster fire in terms of performance and resolution, or did those problems get patched out? I've been playing games on my Switch a lot lately, so even though I have ROTN on my PS4 (unfinished), I'm tempted to grab it on Switch so I can play it in bed, lewl.

If they said that... they're lying cuz gurl... you don't end with Greta of Danasti, the leader in Wallachia reconstruction efforts by accident.

Everyone I showed this to agrees with you. Why would they say that? What is so fun about denying something so obvious?

I recently played Assassin's Creed Valhalla and it's honestly one of the worst, if not the single worst game I have ever played. The bugs make the game virtually unplayable in certain parts, requiring patches or workarounds, the textures in many places look like they're from 2004, the voice acting is atrocious both in acting quality and in recording quality (did they record half the lines in a garage somewhere?), the story is an ever-repeating nonsense where the main quests are virtually all the same storyline in like 10+ different branches, the characters are dull, flat and uninteresting, the visuals are highly anarchronisting despite official claims to be accurate (Norse didn't have shaved biker-punk hair nor did they have tattoos all over their bodies), the side quests and gear are wholly useless as the game, even on highest setting, does not require any kind of readjustment of weapons or gear, the enemy variety is laughably small, the loading times are the most atrocious of any game since Vic-20 and Commodore 64 times (six minutes of loading times for fast travel, no joke), the business practices are criminal - if you wish for 100 % completion, you must buy through an in-game shop with real currency, spending something like 300 bucks to get everything, and it bears repeating that the story is horrendous. Instead of being a Norse raider looking for a new home, you play the reborn version of a super-human, all filled with sci-fi and pseudo-fantasy that may or may not be even more sci-fi. The game doesn't commit to any kind of tone, claiming time and again to be historically accurate and realistic and then fill it with anachronism, fantasy and sci-fi. This is a game that had no idea if it wanted to go full Skyrim or not and, in being unable to decide, achieved no atmosphere or tone. The music, when present, is decent but most of the time, you play through the game in dead silence.

Then again, I guess this is my fault. The last Ubisoft game I played was the first Rayman on PS1. I foolishly assumed that they still had some sort of quality standard, despite Ubisoft's reputation. I now learned that it is well-deserved. Will never buy a Ubisoft game again. 1/10

Have you beaten it yet?

Oh yes, me and My bro took turns playing the game. Unlocked a lotta stuff including infinite ammo for many of the weapons. That being said there are some quirks the game has that don't seem to work well for the gameplay and those are the weapons functionality. I get what they were trying to do but putting in noticeable delays for loading, cocking, and the fire-rate of certain weapons types (shotguns mainly) feels unnatural. Even during the sequence with Chris Redfield and his team where you fire your gun till you replace the clip. My bro noticed that Chris checks the clip before popping it out and replacing it. This adds a bit of a delay in reloading your weapon. In a real-life situation you don't check a spent clip, you know it's empty thus you eject it right there and pop in a fresh one. Even older  games do this. Is this really that difficult for the game designers to figure out? Also the shotgun that looks like a converted AK-47 doesn't seem to have auto functionality as one would expect. And the delay in loading the next shot into the chamber (again) feels unnaturally slow. There are people out there that can fire and reload a shotgun in quick/rapid succession. Takes them no time at all. Again, I get what they were trying to do but it doesn't work as well as they thought it would. For the next game I hope a little more research goes into the weapons' functionality. The other bit which sticks out like a sure thumb was the story script.

SPOILER ALERT!

Overall it's a decent game. A bit short but decent.

Played a bit of the Witcher 3 on my PS5. It'll definitely take me some time to get through it considering how large the game + DLCs are. Right now I'm giving RE: Village a shot and so far I'm enjoying it. Although I have to get my hands on RE 7 just so I can really understand what's going on with Ethan Winters.

Have you beaten it yet?  I'm on the Village of Shadows difficulty now, so playthrough number 3 i believe? lol.  I thought it was a great game.  7 was also, although a lot of the fanbois gave it slack.  I've been a fan of the RE series since the OG in 95, and i think this was a very necessary turn for the series.  As much of a win that the formula for RE4 was, it's good to see something fresh come up and surprise us.
