    New hip thing to do in 2017......Make statements Switch needs more games from not nintendo......complain about every single third party announced game or release. Sounds legit. Man, u so angry.

    What people don't realize is that EVERY SYSTEM has less than desirable games released for it. This has been happening since the days of Atari, and really is nothing new. Not everything released will be the greatest game ever made. People really need to get over it. At least with these, they look like they're priced accordingly. There's no one even pretending these are AAA titles. You're not paying AAA prices, you shouldn't expect AAA gameplay. In short, you'll probably get what you pay for.

    But so many platforms (including Switch) have the best shovelware game ever.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It is, but I have yet to purchase it on Switch. I have it for Wii U though.

    don't worry, I already ended up getting a copy of Has Been heroes from my uncle already, and I can tell it's used by the pre owned sticker by gamestop on the back XD
    he said he would return it and get me something else if I wanted but I don't have the heart to tell him o.o

    So can we all agree the Switch is a success? I mean the Shovelware is often a proof of it right?

    Shovelware is proof only that its more of a success than say virtual boy. Even the Atari lynx and Panasonic 3do both had some shovelware which is why this thread isn't even a big deal.

    Should Nintendo allow such games to be released on their new system?
    Because it just makes the system look bad, even when its not its creator company making the games.
    Same goes for the Wii and mobile gaming in general.

    Yes.
    Not any worse than any other console in recent history.
    Wii is a dead system...while it was alive it wasn't exactly a failure either.

    Aren't games supposed to go through Q&A tests? Don't consoles and their respective owners have certifications of quality?
    Are you saying these games deserve to be released when in reality its just plagiarism?

    "Troll and I" doesn't look bad at all except for those face models. It's like they disabled all effects on them.
    If I end up getting it, it will be for the split screen coop. I haven't seen any coop action, adventure games on the switch yet and even if it's bad, it'll be fun to laugh at it with someone.

    Question and answer testing? No. What you're looking for is QA (quality assurance) testing. This is to just make sure what's released isn't chalked full of bugs and has little to do with "awesome graphics" or "great gameplay" but rather is to make sure they aren't dropping something completely broken onto the market.
    This is a thing for the console makers but what they classify as allowable is a pretty low barrier .

    What???

    plagiarism? where? lol a casino game they arent riping off anything its just a casino game lol, then you got a shothem up with chikens, again its a shoothem up wich isnt even done anymore lol what is it stealing from?, then you got a serie of games that already exist with monster trucks wich was released on ps4 and now its on switch with even more content again what is it stealing the monster truck idea? lol. Then you got troll and I wich is an adventure game with 2 characters this has been done many times last guardian wasnt the first or the last game to use co op adventure game with a giant creature and a human sized one.

    srs you have no idea what a rippof is, specialy when 3 of the 4 games arent even ripoffs of anything and troll and i is just an adventure game with nothing to do with last guardian except it has 2 main characters one big and one smal ...

    Regardless its shitty games that should never be released on a new console besides the Wii, Steam and or the X360.
