    • Review

      • The Nintendo Switch Craft has to be one of my favorite podcasts to date. RJS does an excellent job of keeping up with current Nintendo events, topics, news and game coverage. He is very clear and concise with his discussions, which is a refreshing alternative to some of the other game oriented podcasts that take listeners off on jumbled tangents.

      • I listen to many Switch podcasts and they are all good, but I find myself consistently listening to all of yours no matter the subject while skipping many from the other guys. You give concise, honest opinions which have led me to trying out some games that I may have not considered. The length of each episode is perfect, it’s not bogged down by trying to hit the hour mark like some others. My only gripe is I wish you had daily shows because 3 a week isn’t enough for me. Being a dad of 3 young kids and having a full time job takes a lot of time away from hobbies as you can relate. So I commend you for finding the time to share with us all.

      • Hey bill how's it going I just heard your last show when you were recommending games to the dude that ask you that question. You are right you can not talk to people however like you son my daughter is into Minecraft. I am not sure how old your son is but my daughter is 8 and a while back she was playing Minecraft online.well in that game you can right like signs and that's how people communicate what to do.  Well this one time my daughter was playing in tablet mode seating next to me and she telling me and my wife playful things someone was saying when all the sudden she said what the heck this person just ask me to have sex!!! My reaction was just took it off her and said for now on Minecraft only tv mode. I was looking for way to complain like in splatoon but I couldn’t find one. The other thing interesting id i have the parent app and put restrictions on games above 9 for when she plays well long story short apparently Minecraft age recommends over 14 so I had to lift that.



          Well keep up the good show

      • Kobeskillz  reviewed I really love this podcast. His voice is great and while a little short he does give us multiple episodes a week which is awesome for listening at work. While I don’t agree with all of his opinions I don’t mind it since he is always clear as to why he feels the way he feels and that’s all you can really ask for. Keep on truckin.

      • Hi Bill,

        Just wanted to drop you a quick word to say how much I've been enjoying your show over the last couple of months.
        I'm new to the Switch but am looking forward to gaming on it over the coming year.

        The ability to take console quality gaming with you on the go is breathtaking. Skyrim being the perfect example of this.

        Over here in the UK, the Switch isn't getting anything like the support from retailers I'd like to see. It's all Xbox and PlayStation 4. The Switch is a bit of an afterthought compared to these in the main retail stores such as Game and Toys R Us. Thankfully, we always have Amazon.

        A few years ago I worked for a national chain that sold Nintendo DS games. They were always plagued with problems from Nintendo who were notoriously difficult to deal with. I wonder if this is still the case?

        My only gripe with the system is the price of the psychical games. I'm sure these will come down over time.

        Please keep reviewing and giving your honest recommendations, these really help.

        I'd love to catch your live stream but it's often on in the middle of the night for me!

        Anyway, keep up the good work and I'll be sure to spread the word on your great show this side of the pond.

        My best,

        Jules

      • Joelmead24 - Gave 5 stars - I’ve been listening for 5 months now, the show is consistently great.  RJS brings a perfect blend of voice, sound quality, knowledge, level-headedness, variety, and depth.  On top of that he brings a nice personality to the table as well.  I really enjoy his self-deprecation and his thick skin for when discord members like me razz him on things like this cat.  Keep up the great incredible work.  Best Nintendo podcast on the planet, anyone who says otherwise will get a sideways look from me from across the room.  Thank you RJS

      • Hey RJS,

        A friend of mine bought a Switch for his two sons for Christmas. He's looking for some game ideas that the 7 and 9 year olds can play individually and together.

        While I know it heavily depends on the person, I wonder if you have any Christmas game ideas. You've always had great recommendations of both mainstream and independent games, and I've appreciated every review and recommendation.

        Thanks,
        Tom (tlbignerd)

        • Gave 2 stars - SwitchCraft was definitely my go-to podcast for Switch news.  I love the short episode, that being said.  Over time things started annoying me.  The intro to episodes became longer and longer. With the most recent episode coming in at a 7 minute intro before the Nintendo news even began.  I get it, you need to sell your ads, sponsors but really.  Speeding it up would be better especially when you hit us again at the end with it.  

        • Secondly I understand subjective news and criticism but it's starting to become a complain fest.  Nintendo doesn’t have the best online system, but com on.  Give them time.  The paid online service is coming.  We don’t know what changes are coming. Relax, it's only been 8/9months since the switch launched.  Calm down!  

        • Third, sportsball.  Really.  

        • Lastly, I would just say be a little more positive with the good parts of games, you kind of skim over any good a game offers and go right to what’s bad, and what you don’t like, which is definitely your opinion but when you have people listening to you, and for some, you might be the only person they listen to to get their Nintendo related news, I feel you should really give good information all around not just focus on the bad.  All that being said, I do like your podcast, you’re clear and your voice is awesome.  I have unsubbed, but I will be popping in to listen.

      • I've been listening for a long time but I travel for work so I rarely get to drop in on the Discord or Twitch streams. I do want to let you know that I really enjoy the show though and I'm constantly listening during my travels.

        I am a child of the 80's and 90's and I remember visiting a friend's house when I was in Kindergarten to play "Super Mario Bros." and "Duck Hunt". I remember being absolutely blown away by how much fun the games were. I begged my parents for a Nintendo every day and for my 6th birthday my parents bought me the NES/Mario/Duck Hunt bundle with the orange Zapper. I had a collection of about 20 games and I absolutely loved them!

        I fell victim to advertisements for the Sega Genesis and Sonic the Hedgehog and sold my NES and all of my games so that I could buy the Sega Genesis. I loved my Genesis but I couldn't help but miss the system that I gave up for it. I made the switch back to Nintendo for the N64 and have stuck to Nintendo every since. I learned my lesson and I've endured all of the good (and the not so good) over the years, but I'm so glad that I've stuck with it. When I think of my my favorite gaming memories, the majority revolve around Nintendo.

        I was thinking recently about my love for Nintendo and the feeling of nostalgia that seems to have swept the gaming world and I was wondering what systems and games have been your favorites over the years? Do you get a sense of nostalgia over anything specific?

        Thanks Bill!! Keep up the great work and Happy Thanksgiving!

        Joe (LuvMyNES)

      • Hey there Bill,

        I have been listening to your podcast for a while now (and I love it!) and thought I would weigh in on the AC Pocket Camp discussion.

        I feel that this game is probably only about 60% of what a full AC game should be, so I know it leaves me and probably many other users itching for a full AC release. I agree that this is probably the best platform for the game, but if they could take what they've created and expand on it on the Switch, I think it would be great. I also agree with you that touch controls are not ideal.

        In terms of micro transactions, they try and encourage you to spend real money at the start buy offering K.K. Slider and Tom Nook as “special additions” to your Camp. I don’t feel that these are really worth the purchase to be honest. Other than that, he micro transactions are fairly easy to avoid.

        As a side note, I would also like to add that this game looks gorgeous.

        Kind regards,

        Dan (MrDiPY)

      • Thomas wrote in.  I am getting older and grumpier , I`ll admit, but the weapon breaking thing , has ruined the game experience for me. When i first bought it, i thought, man .... i dont think ill be buying Skyrim after all ... at least for a long time until i get through most of this game. The game is incredible. But then, the weapon breaking thing started nagging at me ... but i trudged on. But i found myself obsessing over it, altering my gameplay around it, not engaging in certain battles because of it. I started agonizing over which weapon i need to choose ... to break next ... after the weapon i just had broke. I started worrying whether the weapon i just chose, and will break after 10 hits ... will be a weapon i will need in a scenario in the future. I started thinking i need to plot where and what weapons can be found after blood moon reset... the whole game to me began circling around this one issue and it killed the immersion, the flow, the enjoyment.

        I bought skyrim ... and i haven't touched BotW since.

        I understand that the argument supporting the weapon breaking that it forces you to figure out other ways to kill enemies. But i think that argument is weak, because i would do that anyway and let's be blunt here, is it me or is the bomb throwing thing way OP anyway and would be done even if weapons didn't break. I think so.

        Great podcast and if you had paypal link, i would contribute here and there on a non subscription basis.

      • Milo199990 change their review to 5 stars - I’m changing the 5 stars because he addressed my concerns, even though I don’t like it, he tried to explain himself in a decent way.  Maybe cut back on the sportsball a little bit?

      • RJS: your audience really appreciates your show format of 3 days a week and quickly covering news, but I just listened to your Thanksgiving Super MARIO Odyssey spoilercast and I really enjoyed the episode. You have some real expertise in analyzing games and you provided me some good insights to better enjoy the game. Anyway, keep adding these single episode in-depth Analyses to your repertoire now and then.
        Thanks Geoff

      • Doggily Woggily - gave 5 stars, For Nintendo related nerd news, RJS does a great job.  I like the switch and he does too, so naturally we like similar content; and RJS conveys that content brilliantly.  My only problem so far is that I really like FE: Heroes, and RJS doesn’t.  I haven’t spent a dime and have had 100+ hours of joy from that game, that’s not about to stop.  Anyway, keep up the good work and I’ll be listening.

      • Milo199990 said Love the show but, can’t stand when he says “sportsball” no respect for sports and their fans whether they are gamers or not, we don’t say game video or Nintendo switcheroo, will change review if he does.

      • Hello,

        I’ve been following the podcast for a little over a month now and I decided to wait until now to let you know how much I enjoy it. Why now? Well, because I just got my switch today! I’ve been on the switch hype train since seeing the original trailer last fall and I’ve constantly been looking for good podcasts and YouTube channels to keep me up to date on everything until I could get my switch. I’ve loved listening to your show since I stumbled upon it and I also enjoy watching you game on twitch (recently subbed there 😊). The show format is great and the length of each episode is perfect for me to listen to while I walk my dog. Anyways, I just wanted to say keep up the great work, I love the show and I love my switch so far! Now it’s back to Odyssey for me!

        P.S. as someone who listens to a lot of podcasts, I have to say you have a great podcasting voice!

        • The music is Fantastically chiptunish -

          • You unlock more music as you play the game, some of it is really hard to obtain, I’m currently trying for the one after vidi vici veni.  If you’ve played the game you’ll know what I’m talking about.

        • When you die you’re right back at the last checkpoint instantly, doesn’t feel like a massive penalty so you’re likely to keep going

      • The Bad

        • Sometimes I get stuck in the geometry, I’m not sure if that’s my fault or the games fault.  (probably mine)

        • Only get this game if you can handle dying a lot.  If you get frustrated with games easily this is one to avoid.

      • Tomatoross - Thanks for the frequency!  Thanks brother for the show, I work by myself doing internet marketing for car lots, (sticker picture guy) I listen to podcast all day including most of the Nintendo podcast, and believe it or not I scramble for stuff to listen, so I’m glad we get your show every couple of days, also I like the way that you stick to your guns even if it's something small like “sports ball”  we have enough people and companies bending to the will of the complaining minority.  I mean we listen to these shows to get the unique perspective of the host, not to hear them pander and morph into the keyboard wielding toddlers ( who would ruin a game because they are too lazy to finish it and get rewarded)  #who cares about microtransactions rant over thanks, and keep it up.

      • Yo dude I know you’re not into sports type of games minus rocket league but i saw something interesting on eshop for switch. Like you my wife is getting me Nba2k18 for my birthday at end of month and well i was curious about what demos were available to play. I was on eshop and scrolled down to games on sale and saw the nba was 30% off bringing down to $42.00 through 11/27. I myself not very into buying digital cause really don’t want deal with multiple sd cards someday. However $20 off is damn good so I told if she aint buy it yet we should buy the digital copy. Hard to pass up that sale. Even people interested in the $100 version of the game which to me i personally would not pay more than $60 for a game is on sale for $60. I guess sometimes it pays to wait.

      • Aggro Crog - When I got my switch, I struggled to find a regular place for news, updates, and feedback from the nascent community on current and upcoming games.  Nintendo SwitchCraft immediately became that place for me and I’ve been listening since April.  RJS has a great podcast voice, he provides well -reasoned opinions on gaming subject matter, and the regular episode releases mean that listening will always keep you up to date.   I love this podcast, and I hope more Nintendo fans will give it the attention that it deserves.  PS I’m only know getting around to dropping a review because I have an Android phone and I don’t use a mac.  I’m sure there are many like me who have subscribed via a multitude of non-iTunes applications so please forgive us for taking so long.

      • Hey Bill listen to last show. I have picked up rocket league yet because don’t have a chance to play yet but in comparison to MK8 online. When ever me and my daughter play together split screen online we just use our profile names so like I am the only one with Nintendo account. My daughter as a child account linked to mine and her own user name while my wife just has a user name although she really not a gamer. Sorry email long but player is the main user online and then you pick the other user name. There is no adding a 2 to the first name.

      • Hi RJS,

        I want to share a story with you about my 3DS and microSD card. I have 300 3DS digital titles, a mix of Virtual Console, eShop titles, and first party downloads. 300 is the max a 3DS can have if you did not know that. I actually have more than that, but I can't hold them all. This all takes up around 80GB. The 300 hundred limit is 60 pages of 3DS titles where 5 titles per page are listed in data management.

        About a month ago the microSD card would not allow writes. I don't know what happened or changed. It was bricked, but still readable fortunately. I purchased a new 128GB card and copied all the files over successfully.

        I was fortunate that the card was still readable and wanted to warn others to make backups. Can you image downloading 80GB of 3DS titles along with DSi titles. Also, I would have lost my save games and backups.

        The story had a happy ending, but I was sweating it, until the new card and a backup had been completed.

        Cheers

      • A few weeks ago on the podcast you mentioned that you were fed up with Amazon not delivering on time but didn't really want to switch to buying games from Best Buy because you would have to go pick them up. I wanted to let you know that Best Buy will ship games to you for free. I recently stopped buying from Amazon and joined the Gamer's Club program and it's great so far. Mario Odyssey was the first game I got with the club, and I got a $10 bonus coupon for buying, along with $5 off for joining the club. Long story short I'm getting Doom for $32! The reason I decided to go with Best Buy over Amazon is that Amazon makes you preorder to get the discount. I was forcing myself to buy games I wasn't sure about because I wanted 20% off, but that is no longer an issue.

      • Hey Bill,

        My name's Scott, and I've been listening to your podcast for a few months now.
        It's really good!

        I wasn't subscribed at first, but when I realized that I kept checking back to see when new episodes were released, I subscribed. I know a good rule of thumb with podcasting is that you probably have twice as many listeners as subscribers, so I hope that's encouraging.

        Thanks for covering news, offering your honest opinions on games, as well as getting into meaningful topics like accessibility. I listen to a lot of shows in the gaming industry, so I always appreciate when someone takes the time to form a nuanced opinion on something and deliver it well.

        Keep it up! I know it's a lot of work. I appreciate it.

      • Just listened to episode 102, and wanted to offer input on the 2D costume issues in Mario Odyssey. The only time I ran into this issue was when I was not wearing a matching outfit. I had on the racing suit but the caveman hat and when I went into a 2D level, I was wearing the classic outfit. Any other time I was wearing a matching costume it showed up in 2D as well. Haven't done any specific research on this, but I do remember this instance that caused me to pay closer attention to it. Thanks for a great Nintendo news podcast.

      • Multiple people mentioned this but I think that Kodiak Moonwolf summed this up perfectly.  

      • Think I have an answer in regards to the 2d stuff on odyssey (I posted in spoilers but i know you're not reading it) So I think i've just worked out the mystery of the costumes, and what happened with that person who emailed in on the Podcast, It looks like that if you're wearing a full costume (i.e. hat and body) then when you go into 2D, the game has a sprite for it. but i guess, they didn't make sprites for all the possible combinations if your different costumes.  I tested by going into a 2d section wearing a full costume, sprite showed up, but when i went in with different parts, it defaulted to the standard mario

      • Hey Bill,

        I’ve been loving Odyssey so far, but one detail is bugging me: I’m sure that I saw a video from E3 where Mario was in a 2D section with the poncho costume on. Now when I go into a 2D section it’s just classic Mario. Did 2D costumes get cut? What happened?
