YouTube comment from IAZEEEEEE

I think your explanation of display refresh rate vs. input lag was a bit misleading. While 90hz displays are cool, you would only benefit from it in terms of input lag if Stadia also streams 90fps. Same with your mentioned monitor: 144hz will only bring an input lag benefit if Stadia streams more than 60fps. It will not automatically be better for current Stadia specs (60fps).

YouTube Comment from Gavin Butcher

Great show guys, I look forward to it every week! I have pre ordered the founders pack because I love the idea of being able to play games on multiple devices like my TV, phone and Chromebook. However the main selling point for me is that on Stadia I won’t have clear space on my hard drive and wait for a game to download every time I purchase a new game. Keep up the great work.

YouTube comment from Sofa Spy

I picked up the founders edition because my switch convinced me that being able to play my games anywhere is more important than being forced to play only in front of my couch. Since Stadia can be played on any device and on any screen, at 4k 60 fps, it was a no brainier for me

New Indie World Showcase Reveals Next Slate of Top Indie Games Coming to Nintendo Switch

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 19, 2019 – In a new-look Indie World presentationlivestreamed globally today, Nintendo highlighted an exciting selection of independent games that are coming to the Nintendo Switch system soon, thanks to the passionate efforts of indie developers around the world who have found a home with Nintendo.

The innovative first-person shooter SUPERHOT and Hotline Miami Collection, which features both games from the high-octane Hotline Miami series, are available to purchase on Nintendo eShop today. The online* multiplayer roguelike Risk of Rain 2, from Gearbox Publishing, was revealed as coming to Nintendo Switch this summer, while strategy- and mythology-inspired Northguard from Shiro Games, and pinball-inspired dungeon crawler Creature in the Well from Flight School Studio, are available today for pre-purchase. Furthermore, the critically acclaimed action-platformer Ori and the Blind Forest will be coming to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27 as Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition.

“Since the system’s launch in 2017, Nintendo Switch has become a go-to platform for indie developers,” said Kirk Scott, Nintendo of America’s Indie Partner Manager of Publisher and Developer Relations. “With the diverse lineup of upcoming indie content showcased today, Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to expanding their digital libraries even further with a variety of quality indie games to play at home or on the go.”
A full list of games featured in today’s Indie World video include:

  • Explore the mysterious and beautiful forest of Nibel in the visually stunning action-platformer Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition, developed by Moon Studios and published by Xbox Game Studios. Winner of multiple prestigious awards, the game tells the tale of a young orphan destined for heroics, and features hand-painted artwork, meticulously animated character performances and a fully orchestrated score. The Definitive Edition is scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27, and will also include numerous new features.
  • Hotline Miami Collection features both games in the neon-soaked, brutally challenging Hotline Miami series, developed by Dennaton Games and published by Devolver Digital. Mixing hard-boiled gunplay and skull-crushing close combat with a grippingly surreal and mysterious storyline, this heavy-hitting two-pack of violent top-down action is available today on Nintendo Switch.
  • Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT from SUPERHOT Team is an innovative and stylish first-person shooter in which time only moves when the player moves. With no regenerating health bars or conveniently placed ammo drops, players must shoot, slice and maneuver their way through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. SUPERHOT is available today for Nintendo Switch.
  • Risk of Rain 2, developed by Hopoo Games and published by Gearbox Publishing, is the sequel to classic multiplayer roguelike Risk of Rain, adding an extra dimension and more challenging action. Players can take on the game solo, or team up with friends to fight their way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot and find a way to escape the planet. Risk of Rain 2launches for Nintendo Switch this summer.
  • Torchlight II, developed by Panic Button/Runic Games and published by Perfect World Entertainment, is an award-winning action RPG launching soon for Nintendo Switch. The game offers solo adventuring or online* multiplayer for up to four players, with a huge world to explore full of bloodthirsty monsters, bountiful treasures and sinister secrets. The Nintendo Switch version includes an exclusive in-game pet in the form of a chubby pink unicorn.
  • Discover a beautifully detailed post-apocalyptic world in Eastward, an adventure game with RPG elements from developers Pixpil and publishers Chucklefish. In a near-future society on the brink of collapse, a hardworking miner called John discovers a young girl named Sam in a secret underground facility. This unlikely pair will embark on an emotional journey across a wonderfully weird world, exploring bustling towns, curious campsites and shady forests. Eastward is scheduled to arrive on Nintendo Switch in early 2020.
  • Freedom Fingerfrom Wide Right Interactive is a music-driven, side-scrolling shooter that sends players blasting, punching and smashing their way across 37 levels of crazy cartoon action. Shoot ’em up, punch ’em and smash ’em up when Freedom Finger launches fully uncensored for Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27.
  • Make the trip you always wanted in action-adventure game The Touryst from Shin’en. Players will have the chance to discover exotic islands, explore ancient monuments, climb into deep mines and uncover secret passageways. The Touryst is set to launch for Nintendo Switch in November.
  • Skellboy, from developers Umaiki Games and publishers Fabraz, is an action-RPG in which players can swap out not only their weapons and equipment, but their body parts too! As an accidentally resurrected hero from ancient times, players will set out on an epic journey across a vibrant fantasy world, set to a background of rocking chiptune tracks. Skellboy hacks and slashes its way onto Nintendo Switch on Dec. 3.
  • Developed by Polygon Treehouse and published by United Label, Röki is an adventure game inspired by Scandinavian folklore – a dark contemporary fairy tale underpinned by a touching narrative, alluring art style, ancient puzzles and atmospheric exploration. With its nonviolent gameplay, approachable controls and universal themes, Röki is coming to Nintendo Switch this winter.
  • Developed and published by frecle, Youropa is a gravity-defying puzzle-platform paint adventure about breaking rules, being upside down and thinking outside the box. With physical puzzles, riddles, ferocious enemies, environmental hazards and more, Youropa is a mind-bending adventure that will challenge players’ perception of the third dimension. Youropa will come to Nintendo Switch in 2019.
  • EarthNight from Cleaversoft is a beautifully hand-illustrated 2D platformer about the dragon apocalypse, and a love letter to classic arcade games. Humans have been exiled to space, dragons have taken over the Earth and it’s up to a 14-year-old schoolkid and a freelance photographer to stop them. EarthNight launches on Nintendo Switch in 2019.
  • Dungeon Defenders: Awakened from Chromatic Games is the newest installment in the popular Dungeon Defenders franchise. The gameplay of Dungeon Defenders: Awakened is the ultimate combination of action-RPG and strategic tower defense, where players can choose from four unique heroes and join forces with friends in up to four-player split-screen** cooperative gameplay. Dungeon Defenders: Awakened launches as a timed console exclusive for Nintendo Switch in February 2020.
  • From Easy Day Studios Pty Ltd, Skater XL is the next evolution in skateboarding video games that brings the fun, creativity and culture of skateboarding to the digital world. Created by a team of passionate skateboarders, Skater XL allows players to add style and expression to their tricks without the limits of pre-made animations. Skater XL comes to Nintendo Switch in 2020.

Players can look forward to even more great indie games coming to Nintendo Switch in the near future, including:

Email from SchmokinHerbz

Hey Bill!
SchmokinHerbz here, Ive listened to switchcraft for quite some time now,  just recently started popping into twitch to say hi. Your community is real nice to new people. 
But the main reason for this email is just that I have been wanting two green joycons forever now and have dreaded having to buy two sets of joycons just to get the color combo I want. AND NOW THEY ARE COMING OUT AS A SPECIAL! 
I will be getting them alongside Luigi’s Mansion 3 and cannot be anymore excited. I knowbyou didnt seem that excited but this is something Ive wanted forever!
Keep it up,SchmokinHerbz

Hi Bill,
Always enjoy your show! I would like to raise a potential topic for you.
Have you heard about the disaster that is the Switch port of Pillars Of Eternity? Many players are experiencing major gameplay, graphics and stability bugs in the initial release – in some regards it feels like an early beta version got shipped:

Email from Matthias

https://www.reddit.com/r/projecteternity/comments/cpfngj/obsidian_on_twitter_re_pillars_of_eternity_switch/To their credit, the Studio behind the port, Versus Evil (@vs_evil) is engaging with players on Twitter, so I hope we can get the issues fixed reasonably soon without making a big stink about it, but it raises the question how a port of this miserable quality could ever be submitted to the eShop. I wonder what are your thoughts on this kind of issue?
Would be interesting to hear your opinion on this on Nintendo SwitchCraft and have a bit more attention called to the quality of ports for the Switch.
Keep up the great work,
Matthias,Tokyo

Email from Corbin
