Dungeon Defenders is on Kickstarter for the Switch!

It’s Kickstarter so expect this to take forever or possibly for NEVER. But Dungeon Defenders may have a brand new version and they are including the Switch in their Kickstarter.

If you’ve never played the original Dungeon Defenders, it was a tower defense RPG, with an over the shoulder camera, that was actually pretty rad.

What do you think, is this something you’re interested in? I think it looks rad. I don’t tend to do Kickstarters, but this one has my attention. Let me know in the comments below.

Hey Bill! Been lurking here and listening to your podcasts for a while now, thanks for all you do! Wanted to ask a question, not sure if this has been touched on in any of the older episodes or discussed in other channels, but have you ever dealt with the issue that’s being referred to as joy-con drift? It’s where the joy-con analogue stick would start inputting a direction despite being in a neutral/idle position or continue inputting a direction after being let go. Pretty much all my friends with a Switch, including both Switches in my household had this problem start occuring after 1-3 months after using their console. Usually a spray or 2 of compressed air under the rubber flap will make it go away, but it’s always temporary. If you’ve dealt with this, maybe you’ve found a way to deal with it and figured out a more long-term solution?

Fortnite players on Switch no longer fight the other consoles

Fortnites 8.1.0 patch notes are up, and they have a big change for Switch users.

Battle Royale Crossplay MatchmakingCombined Xbox One and PS4 pools.This requires you to opt-in to cross-play. Players opt-ing out are restricted to Creative Mode and Playgrounds. Combined Mobile and Switch pools.Before, Switch players were combined with Xbox One and PS4 cross-play parties. We expect an on-average better per-game experience for both Mobile and Switch players. Motivating factor is unlocking optimization potential allowing us to run more playlists during more hours of the day while supporting more data center locations.

Fortnite Patch Notes

This change is sure to be divisive. On one hand playing on Switch with 30FPS against players on Xbox and PS4 with 60FPS means that you’re at a disadvantage. However taking us out of those pools means less players to play with. Will it take longer to get a match up and running on the Switch? Perhaps, but I don’t think I’ve ever waited longer than 30 seconds for a match to start in the game, so perhaps that isn’t a real issue. At the very least now we’ll be fighting against people using touch screen. Which feels like a huge disadvantage to them.

What do you think of the change?
