Direct Download to Episode 186

We’re dropping likes flies over here. The illness going around has now spread to Corey. Jay is still sick but managed to make a valiant effort this week as he and Mike are the lone hosts for this week’s show.

Listen as we discuss Jay’s thoughts on the Nintendo Switch, the glut of recent beta invites, and the console announcements for some games we’ve been following for awhile.

Games we’ve been playing are Rise & Shine, Dead Rising 4, Fallout 4, Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, The Division, Gears 4, and Toby: The Secret Mine.

Last week’s QotW: What makes you buy the switch, and if not, what feature would put you over the top?

Question of the week (submitted by Mafia-Thug): How long have you had your gamer tag? And, if so inclined, explain why your gamer tag is what it is?

Question from Matt: what’s the perfect gaming snack drink combo?
