Zombie Gold Rush heading to Switch (UPDATE)

The mobile game Zombie Gold Rush is heading to the Switch. A listing on the eShop has it slated for Oct. 26th, with a price of $5. The game will take up 106MB of space. If you want to give the game a try right now, you can actually grab it for free on the iOS app store. The mobile version has microtransactions, but the Switch version is a one-time purchase for all content.

UPDATE - This game will also be heading to Japan on Oct. 26th

That's the kinda of game Nintendo shouldn't allow on the eShop.

Ports of mobile games are fine as long as they are stuff like "Implosion Never Lose Hope". High quality games.

However, this... This is nothing more than a glorified flash game.

The eShop was doing pretty great so far, but now Nintendo is starting to let very very basic games to be sold on it... If they continue this trend, in 2018 I can see the Switch eShop becoming the shitfest the Wii U eShop became.

No, Nintendo needs to stay as generous as they are now.

Nobody is forced to buy "bad" games, and there is no perfect system for console manufacturers to decide what's a legit game and what's "shovelware".

A too strict "quality control" policy only leads to good games not being allowed to be released based on arbtrary standards.

Wrong. In fact, what you've said been proven wrong time and time again. Having that kind of freedom WILL hurt good developers.

Look at the Android store, for example. For every 1 good game that gets released, you good 100 shitty ones. In the end this one good game gets buried alive and nobody sees it.

I have a Android phone with no games on it because, really, I CAN'T find anything good on Google Android. I just can't. The only times when I download a game for my smartphone was when I heard someone recommending a game on the Internet. However, inside the store, looking by meself, I can't find anything.

What chance a GOOD small developer will have when can't use the store to find their game?

Do you want that to be the future of the Nintendo Switch?

The same is true for Steam. Years ago I used to browse the Steam store and discover awesome. Nowadays, I don't even bother. Steam now lets all sorts of BS to be released there and good games simply don't have a chance of being featured.

The situation on Steam is so sad that someone has created a tutorial to help people find good games:

Yeah, do you really believe that allowing shovelware to besold on your store is good a thing when the people actually have to use a tutorial to have a chance of finding something decent?

And of course, as I said before, that also happaned with the Wii U.

And it's not me... Here's a reddit page about it:


And here's more people unable to find anything good (this time, on Steam):


By allowing shovelware into your store, you giving are destroying the chances of good developers to have their games discovered.

Your position is anti-customer and pro shovelware publishers and devs. that are just look to make some easy money by realeasing cheap crap.

Your opinion is anti-consumer.

Tons of great games did not get released on PS1/PS2 in America because of the arbitrary "quality control" nosense of SCEA, which was essentially censorship, but not against sex or violence, but against 2d graphics.

I'm sorry, but i don't want my gaming options limited for the sake of the console keeping a good image with people too careless to do some research about what they buy beyond reading what it says on the box/shop description (all your links), or with people too stupid to use a search function (the group your first link is catering to), or with people literally stupid enough to buy a bundle of random games from Steam (the guy in your second link).

As much as I agree with the same sentiment you're taking, sadly the buyer beware is the exact reason Andre is saying bad games hurt the system.

It has taken on a more corporate-blamed responsibility to "protect" us from our own frivolous actions with our wallets. It's similar with several social movements parading as a way to diversify the reach of a product, essentially reaching a phantom market. And when this happens, it's clearly the company, not either diversifying enough, coming off with too aggressive sales slogans or simply just not protecting us from bad or offensive media.

I side with you on it being more a free market, but since the Wii I have seen it grow into this monster of aggression towards the companies for not having stricter punishments and regulations for poor games.
