    It might not be a Nintendo Direct, but it'll definitely give us some news about upcoming games for the Nintendo Switch. An Indie World broadcast is slated for tomorrow, December 10th, at 7 pm CET. The livestream will last around 20 minutes, bringing information on upcoming indies that'll be releasing in the future. The previous Indie World showcase featured announcements such as Superhot and Ori and the Blind Forest coming to the Switch, as well as gameplay for many other titles.

    Good. Show us all the Indie stuff before the Video Game Awards. That way they can concentrate on the "big games" during the VGAs.

    Shovel knight king of cards comes out tomorrow, so there will probably be a launch trailer for that in there.

    Hope FP2 is formally announced for Switch, maybe DLC for something else.

    I'm not sure it counts as indie since I think it has an actual publisher now, but all I want is info on the switch release of La-Mulana 2.

    I'd say the opposite: AAA games have such long development cycles and cost so much to make that it's very rare to see original concepts, and we get maybe 2-4 truly good AAAs per year. There's a lot less risk in trying something new with indies, and they don't take nearly as long to develop, so there are at least 6-10 truly good ones released per year.

    Sturgeon's law states that 90% of everything is shit, and while I'd put that number closer to 80%, it still rings somewhat true for gaming across all platforms and development budgets. Which means with a much higher volume of indie releases comes a lot more shit, but also a lot more great stuff.

    all you have to do is browse steams library with NO FILTERS active and just like at the garbage that shows up on a daily basis. and than they will port half of that SHIT to the switch!
