    Not a joke. These games are actually going to be released for the Switch... What a waste of game cards.

    Seems like Funbox Media and Maximum Games have a boner for shitty games.

    Do you even know what shovelware means? These games might not be brilliant but they're far from shovelware. I just saw a video of troll And I, and it could be a decent game actually.




    Certainly much more effort went into it than for shovelware.

    Chicken Orange and Vegas Party do look weak. Well judging from the fact i cant find anything about them.

    Decent? It's like a crappy clone of The Last Guardian.



    The graphics look horrible for a 2017 game.

    It can be bad. Doesn't make it shovelware.

    I only want monster jam if Scooby and grave digger are in it. Otherwise it's a rip-off.

    Chicken Range has that "so bad nobody will buy it and then it'll be a sought after collector's item" look.

    What? The graphics look decent for a 2017 handheld game (what the Switch definitely is).

    Why are these even releasing physically? Don't smaller indie titles typically just go online-only?

    Meh not sure why anyone cares about shovelware, as a gamer you are wise enough to recognise and avoid, mobile casuals get their cheapo "angry flap farm clan" bullshit to amuse themselves, the platform itself gets to brag about how many, ahem, "games" are releasing and broadens its user base and 3rd party publishers want a piece of the cash pie.

    Shovelware at this stage should be seen at least as a sign the platform is aggressively selling, look how many units Wii sold and that was 80% shovelcrap, it did however mean the platform was successful enough that we got plenty of quality 1st and 3rd party titles too.

    Win win I say, long live shovelshite.

    But this isn't a "handheld" game, it's a full console game with poor graphics, mediocre gameplay, horrendous physics and an unoriginal story. Switch gamers trying to defend Troll and I. Wow.

    They didn't fix it for PS4/XO so no reason they'd do it for a low-end gaming system either.

    Whoa whoa whoa, don't be calling Monster Jam shovelware! I played one of them on the PSP and it was fun.

    Well, more games for the Switch so there's nothing harmful I guess.
    Unless there are people who are dumb enough to buy these expecting them to be something then cry "SWITCH GAMEZ SUX!!1!1!111"

    Shovelware definitely doesn't mean bad. Just means rush titles to try and get a quick buck. Which guess what? These are.

    The more games, the better. Doesn't matter if it's shovelware or not because someone will end up enjoying that game. You can't possibly tell me that you wouldn't be able to enjoy good games on a console just because shovelware games EXIST for it. What a shitty thought process you have there!
