Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

I might pick up rodland - was only recently i played some of the arcade version on mame. Loved the game on the Amiga though, completed it several times.

 

I got the bomberman game and double switch earlier of the eshop. I think double switch was more for curiosity sake - never got the game on the Mega CD, and from a brief play earlier i doubt i'll play it much.

 

Bomberman seems pretty average, wish they stuck with the view of the original games (infact the snes games look better imo). Online retains the overhead view but still doesn't look as nice.

On the whole this is probably a good thing. So much shovelware exploiting the system by offering special prices at like 80p to go shooting up the charts. 

 

I mean Nintendo could just not let people publish shovelware on their platform no? Then everyone wins.

tbf I think that was later corrected so that games under $2 no longer appear on the Best Sellers list.


I don’t look at that so that’s fine as far as I’m concerned.

Not Nintendo. Any sort of quality control costs time and money. 

 

I know this was a joke comment, but it's really true - how exactly would they do it - who gets to decide on what's 'up to quality' and what isn't? Do they have folks playing every game, do the graphics have to be of a certain standard - it's really, really not easy to suddenly put a bar in place for what makes a game 'quality' and what doesn't. Lots of small, basic looking indies games are really fun - but how do you build a system, at that scale, that works on them.

 

Nintendo should be working on allowing good content to be discovered (and bad content to sink underneath) - better search and display in the eShop etc - leave the decisions on if it's 'good' or 'bad' content down to the players.

The eshop having a rating system would help for a start.

 

I'd say this is precisely the reason it doesn't have one.

 

There's objective fucking garbage on the eShop. The light anime porn games are only the tip of the iceberg.

Just wanted to check what the date is today as the eShop is still proudly shouting about the New Year sale which is scheduled to finish on 10th January...


Still says 21st for me.

Downloaded Agent A for under a quid today after watching the trailer and not having heard of it before.

 

It's good! Spent 2 hours playing it with our 7 year old and she absolutely loves it. Great to see her mind racing to work out the puzzles :wub:

 

Are there any other games like this on the Switch I could download?

How about Professor Layton?
