Direct Download to Episode 202

Welcome to June; the smell of E3 is in the air. But first, we have Episode 202 to attend to. Sit back and enjoy us ramble on about such topics as: Nintendo Switch Online, PS3 memories, GameStop/Amazon business deals, and a little E3 prediction game show.

Other features include: community question of the week, voice mails, listener questions, what we’ve been playing, and more games news.

Games mentioned this week are: Shadow of War, Dead Cells, Tormentor X Punisher, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas, Genital Jousting, Shadow Warrior 2, The Culling, 1-2 Switch, and Victor Vran: Overkill Edition.

Intro:
Nintendo announces paid online won’t launch till 2018, until then trial mode
– Pricing: $19.99 per year, $3.99 a month, $7.99 3 months
– More than one free game a month and play as long as you like, exact quote:
“Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play,” … “Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription.”
– The first titles announced for the “Classic Game Selection” (name not necessarily final) are Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight, and Dr. Mario. Super NES games are under consideration
Voice chat, this will happen through a “dedicated smart device app” that connects to the Switch. It not only lets you chat with friends online (in supported game), but also invite friends to play and set “play appointments.” A “limited” version of the app will be available this summer.
– Let’s talk about this elegant solution:
