So, does Nintendo do any quality control for Switch titles, or have they thrown the doors wide open the way Valve did with Steam? I don't own a Switch and I've never been a console gamer, so I'm really not up to date on these things...

Nintendo does have quality assurance, but that doesn't stop publishers from releasing complete duds. I think the main thing is it prevents them from turning in the kind of games that feel like class projects or asset flips. This one may be shoddy, but I can tell the developer at least put some work into it and didn't just slap together some random junk for a quick buck.

There are some good articles to read online about Ninty's QA. I'd post them right now, but it would take me a while to find them. One talks about how their QA helped rebuild the industry after it collapsed in the early '80s.

The only thing my milkshake brings to the yard is a subpoena.
