The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open-world masterpiece where you can be anyone and do anything. And now, with the power of the Nintendo Switch system, you can play it anywhere – at home or on the go. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim brings to life a complete virtual world for you to explore any way you choose, including features new to this version of the game like using motion controls and outfits and gear from compatible Legend of Zelda series amiibo figures (sold separately).
Battle Chef Brigade – In the fantasy realm of Victusia, the members of the elite Battle Chef Brigade are revered for their ability to skillfully take down monsters and transform their kills into delicious cuisine. But being a part of the Brigade isn’t easy: Chefs from across Victusia must vie for their spot in a high-stakes competition. Follow two contestants, Mina and Thrash, as their journeys through the tournament unfold. In order to become a Brigadier you’ll need to hunt monsters with combo-based attacks and prepare your freshly caught ingredients in puzzle-based cooking challenges to serve up winning dishes to the judges – all while the round clock ticks down. The Battle Chef Brigade game will be available on Nov. 20.

Right? (About the indie 10 to 15 games a week, not about your game.) I thought I wanted the Virtual Console (and I still do), but there's more than enough to play right now. It's ridiculous in a good way.
I know I keep going on about this, but there are just too many games for me to play right now. I'm playing Mario, Doom and Bomberman right now, with DLC for Zelda and ARMS that I haven't tried yet, and then there's all this goodness this week.
Skyrim's in the mail, I want to support Two Tribes and get RIVE, I can't not double dip on VVVVVV, Dead Synchronicity seems interesting, and Battle Chef Brigade seems weird in a good way.
I've been playing RIVE on Switch, got a code from the dev. It's really good! No performance issue whatsoever docked or undocked.
It's an overwhelming game, with things coming at you from every direction. I wasn't sure I enjoyed it that much until I started replaying levels: I had this Viewtiful Joe moment where I'm fumbling the first time through, and when I go back later, I realize "Oh wait, I got this".
It's definitely not Toki Tori 2, though, not in terms of structure, or the way it tells its story.
@Guillaume Yeah, the Nindies demo on Wii U was fun. Plus, I want to reward all devs that maintain 60fps. Within reason. Seeing nearly all of these indie games on sale on PS4 at a 70% discount within a few weeks of the Switch release is kind of hard to swallow, though. Such bad timing! Unless Sony is the entity that schedules everything, I guess.
Didn't Two Tribes say that this was their last game?
I got my copy of Skyrim today, and it's super tempting to start playing, but I know that I'll just put it aside in a couple of weeks when Xenoblade 2 hits. Good thing I didn't decide to get LA Noire too. Yet.
