Things are getting good in the world of Nintendo. Elaine is off this episode, so Garret and Rebecca talk about their first impressions playing Metroid Dread. They discuss the records the game has already broken in Japan and the early success of the OLED mode. They also chat about some other headlines, such as Grand Theft Auto announced for the Switch. As always, they answer listener questions, such as how to avoid life getting in the way of gaming and which beloved childhood games weren’t so fantastic after all.

They also talk about what could have been with an ‘open world’ Metroid Prime 3, their thoughts on Kingdom Hearts Cloud Version on Switch, and how do they take care of their Switch.
Happy International Podcast Day! The Switch Pro rumors seem to never end: Rebecca, Garret, and Elaine chat this week about the latest report from Bloomberg regarding 4K dev kits and Nintendo’s clap back at them (again). Additionally, they discuss the promising trailers for the two upcoming Pokemon games, Switch OLED early impressions, and news about the Donkey Kong expansion to Super Nintendo World. As always, they answer listener questions, such as what type of podcast they’d be hosting if they had time for another, and which SNES games they’d recommend to someone new to that console.
This week, Elaine, Garret, and Rebecca discuss the September 2021 Nintendo Direct presentation, giving their thoughts on announcements such as Monster Hunter Rise DLC, a 3D Kirby game, the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, Bayonetta 3, and of course, the eclectic Mario movie voice cast.
