    Puzzle Adventure Blockle - Use the shoulder buttons to move left/right and then on to the next level (with the typical 3 stars rating).
    Sine Mora - It's a fun SHUMP game but costs way more on the Switch.
    Ironcast - Looks like another Candy Crush clone with stuff happening on the background.
    Physical Contact 2048 - Soduko type of game.

    Beach Buggy Racing - This is my favourite game of the list to pick on (:P). BBR is a free game on the Play Store, it looks graphically pretty good and the controls are decent but overall, it's just a poor man's Mario Kart.

    To be fair, Xbox 360 had a lot of shit like this under the Indie category but I just expected better from Nintendo themselves for not allowing crap such as this to make on to the Switch, but the more the better, ain't it? Quantity over quality.

    And yeah, call me a hater. :P

    I feel like this is what happens when you open the floodgates. People were upset that the Big 3 were only allowing a few indie devs to get through, that they had to lack their policies. Now it's become too lack and it's becoming a pile of shit.

    Is filled with RPG maker games and tons of Visual novels not of quality is that what you mean? (I saw a game for $2 and says "If for some reason you want your refund for this game, please email me") :P

    I mean i dunno if is a joke or not but gaming is starting to become bad cause of no quality control. People complain about not being able to give indie games a chance and then when they do, they disappoint. Now I don't mean all games are disappointing but too man clone games, too many games play alike and total rip off with no creativity and attempt to make money. Don't get me started on microtransactions and pay to win or confusing dlc purchases or do i just have to say "LJN" :ninja:

    I think that's pretty much everything available in NA and Europe for demos, besides Just Dance 2017. If you want demos check out the Japanese eshop. What about Disgaea 5 Complete? Isn't there a demo for that?

    I'm not sure it's really fair to toss Sine Mora, which is a game that clearly has a decent level of effort put into it, on the level of lazy mobile ports just because it's more expensive than on other platforms. Also, some mobile games like VOEZ are actually good games and worth porting.

    I honestly thought I'd installed some fake steam rip off trying to shove the worst kind of android rectal discharge onto my monitor.

    It reminds me of the 80's where you could buy Commodore games in petrol stations for £2 that generally involved some green and purple splodges bouncing around a background of the statue of liberty, if you where lucky.

    It seems that quality controll has gone completely backwards and we now have to endure Atari levels of shite to trawl through just to find something decent to play.

    In all honesty even Atari, even E fucking T has nothing on some of this shit being palmed off as "gaming" these day's, I expect it on android stores but I thought Steam was some sort of stellar software distribution platform, not the arse end of the gaming gutter.

    I figure this is like a band-aid, the sooner we get these games over with, the less painful it'll be.

    No, is on playstation store and xbox live as well, is not system exclusive, is all there, like flappy bird lol. :P

    Still that is the point is that companies should least help the indie devs in their games to least make them a "GAME" worth purchasing, cause honestly some aren't. I know it sounds mean but is true, and i bet some people really aren't trying to make a game people would consider buying. Just make a game and put it out there, someone will play it. Yeah I know, and those people would probably regret it.

    Yeah it was really terrible, I did find a good Dark Eye bundle for £4 eventually but dear God the absolute junk I had to sift through to get there was soul crushing.

    As far as I could see there's not even a way to filter out the bullshit, even with filters I was still seeing "Legend of the Dragon rapist VIII bestiality edition" and "Anal dwarf adventures sodomy quest IV"...
    ...actually those titles sound too good for the shit I actually saw lol.

    I'm all for indie games but it's a bit sad considering steam used to be really rather great, I really hope Switch doesn't turn out like that, shovelware is fine when it's easy to flick past onto the good stuff but when you're drowning in the shit it makes genuinely good Indies almost impossible to seperate.

    There's alot of great games being lost in the tides of crap these days and that's kinda sad, this isn't the 70's/80's anymore.

    indi devs should have powerful enough tools to make snes quality games.... They either lack the dedication or the skill. would anyone like a new chrono trigger style game or perhaps Mega man 7/x? I sure would. Shovel knight proved the power of a nes style game done right......

    This is more similar to the cheap section of Steam. In some ways that's been great, we get stuff like Thumper and Owl Boy.

    That's dumb. Give me a genre and I can list plenty of good games released recently. Provided a lighter/cell-shaded aesthetic doesn't automatically discount a game as "weeaboo," anyway. For instance: everybody should buy Pit People, but that's an easy one.

    There's only like five games in the coming soon section of the eShop in Canada, and I'd only call one of them iOS trash.

    Well this games come to Switch and is just de begining, but is to complement, and yes WiiU-3DS-DS-WII-PS3-PS4 and now Xbox One have some game like this but Switch is a Portable console, as the Smartphone you put in the same place and you compare games and is unfair but a fact that are movile/portable games.
