I’ve been playing and loving BoTW again, all because I left my headphones at home and didn’t want to play Xenoblade without sound!

    • Review

      • I’ve decided to include less reviews in the podcast.  I’ll still read every one.  I really appreciate when you guys take time out of your day to help me out, and it does help.  But I feel like the reviews were taking up too much of the show.  I’ll bring them back on light news days when there isn’t as much to talk about.  

    • Email - Runjumpstomp@gmail.com

      • Rob from Chicago emailed and said that would like to see the Metal Gear games remastered for the switch.

      • Matt said he’d like to see a new Road Rash or Twisted Metal

      • Jeremy wants a sequel to Odama, a tactical pinball game set in feudal Japan.  

        • The portability of the Switch as well as features such as HD rumble could really improve this overlooked franchise. Heck, maybe this game could give Nintendo an excuse to improve voice chat on the Switch. A bundled  headset with the game could coincide with a system-wide voice chat update.

      • John wants to see Tecmo Bowl come back!  No official rosters, just give the players fake names. (I think they should populate the players names from your friends list)

      • Matthew Wants a baseball simulation game like the BIGS (I can’t recommend RBI baseball though)  It’s an okay game at best.  

      • Tom mentioned Space Quest / Kings Quest / Marble Madness / Dr. J vs Larry Bird / Titanfall

      • Karl wants to see a remaster of Burnout 3, Remaster or new Splinter Cell game

      • Paul said Cannon Fodder which I wasn’t familiar with, I had to look it up, I guess it was an RTS on the SNES.  (Definitely an underserved genre on consoles in general)

    • Tweet @runjumpstomp   

      • Rebecca tweeted A DS game I’d like to see is the physics puzzle game Soul Bubbles.  It was perfect for the stylus and should work well with the touch screen.

      • @Nin10doPics said they wanted a Zelda version of Mario + Rabbids

    • Review

      • If you’re looking for a Nintendo Switch podcast, look no further, RJS offers something I haven’t heard in other podcasts:  Frequent, short and up to date podcasts.  He comes across as a regular guy and that is exactly what I want.  He makes it feel like you’re his friend and he’s in a conversation with you about something you both enjoy.  He rarely strays off topic, and he doesn’t talk about his “Shawnz” or “plimbus’ like other podcasts on large review sites Imaging that.  Good clean fun!  I’ve never caught his live broadcasts but he frequently addresses his chat room and the people in it.  If that isn’t enough this guy promotes his wife’s Etsy shop at the end of his show instead of the normal like / share / subscribe which is endearing as heck “single tear”  This is such an easy decision to subscribe and if you’re still reading this just subscribe already.

      • RJS,

      • Ottoman here, hope you had a great New Year. I'm writing in question of the Bandai Namco press event that occurred in December last year. The one time I actually had the opportunity to join the live show, you actually informed me that it was taking place. Haven't been able to join live since, but I listen to every episode as soon as it is available on TuneIn Radio. I haven't heard you speak on the subject, nor can I get ANY information online. Apparently this events attendants had to sign non-disclosure agreements.... ANNOYING! Just curious if you or anyone else has heard anything through the grape vine about this. I'm dying to hear if we will have the opportunity to die hundreds of times playing Dark Souls in public places. Lol. I personally feel like the Switch is a perfect platform for this beloved RPG. Apologies if this got a little over the top. I still love the show and will continue to listen so long as you keep talking Nintendo. Thanks again for a truly remarkable Show. The best Nintendo Podcast out there.

        • Golden Goku gave 2 stars said I was a little bored listening to it.  Good production values earned it the second star, but it still needs to hold my interest to be worth my subscription.

      • Hi Bill,

      • On the subject of 32GB memory cards, I for one hope to see the 64GB cards this year and not 2019.

      • I'm hoping to be playing Grand Theft Auto 5 which I believe is a 50GB game. I'd be happy to just download the extra data to my Switch SD card (I've put a 128 GB card in mine) but would prefer to have it all on the one larger game cart.

      • When Rockstar's L A Noire was released on the Switch, it required an 11GB extra download on top of the cart. I wonder if this has affected sales? It certainly seems to have been mentioned as a con in several reviews I read. Also, this game has been widely discounted, I wonder why?

      • This may make Rockstar think twice now before releasing GTA5.

      • Keep up the great work,

      • Jules

      • Two reviews today!

        • I borrowed my sisters iPhone so I could give this review... that's how much I love this podcast. Love, Kid_Kurty    

      • I switch from NVC to your podcast. You are short and right to the point on switch news. These games like Skyrim and Doom i never played. I am more of a sports game person. With my birthday coming up Fifa and Nba are a must. But for the holiday season not sure what game I would get and your show keeps me changing my mind.

      • Your show continues be entertaining and enjoyable keep up the good work. Also thanks for referring Nintendo power also enjoyable show. One last thing as someone who buys both physical and digital games what do thinks of Nintendo trying to influence digital based on sales they have on major third party games like FIFA and LA Noir.

      • I kind of wish arms would go on sale. Been listening to your show awhile just curious based on number of game it seems like you have did u fill ur sd card yet. This the second reviewing your show it’s that good and want to help you get back to a 5.0.

      • Thanks John        

    • Email - Runjumpstomp@gmail.com

      • Hey Bill

      • I appreciate the time and effort that you put into your podcast, I am also a parent of two very young kids so I understand that free time now days is almost impossible thank you for putting out a quality show. I wanted to ask your opinion about Capcom? I have recently have been playing Slain back from Hell on my switch ( handheld mode) so my kids can’t see and parental locked, while this game might be difficult for a lot of people this is the closet game that we have on the switch that is in my opinion resembles Castlevania Symphony of the night one of my favorite games of all time, now that Capcom seems to be onboard to bring more titles to the Nintendo platform will this game ever come to the switch? or a remastered version or a sequel these Metroidvania type of games are amazing in handheld mode I would also recommend to anyone who enjoys playing games like that to pick up Slain on the Eshop you will die a lot but if you stick with it and learn the mechanics it’s a solid title also with some kick ass music.

      • Thanks again Bill.

I'm Canadian and since I have Canada as my region in iTunes, I believe you can only see American reviews. I also saw another one that you didn't read. Here is a screenshot.

      • T.bond 22 - 5 stars You get 3 great shows a week. RJS does a great job with the solo podcast. Has the perfect voice for a podcast too. If you are into Nintendo you should give the show a listen.

    • Email - Runjumpstomp@gmail.com

      • RJS: so we all know it takes years to create a great game and we’ve seen Nintendo release some major games in 2017 such that a lot of us are now concerned with 2018. The Switch has been such an overwhelming success, now Nintendo has to adjust to a platform with soon to be: tens of millions of customer consoles.., however quickly adjusting isn’t possible when it takes years to make a game, but then I read in article: “Sellars also made the claim that Metroid Prime 4 will be developed by Bandai Namco.

      • Nintendo had previously announced that in-house producer Kensuke Tanabe was heading up the development team for Metroid Prime 4.”

      • So I hadn’t really thought about that, but if Nintendo is flush with cash, can use their in-house talent to produce a game, maybe they can adapt relatively quickly and keep the good games coming by using external studios for hands on work... what do you think? Geoffgg

 

      • My-Reply - We've seen Nintendo Use external studios in the past, anything is possible.  Smash 4 was by Bandaii Namco, I didn't realize that they had earmarked Tanabe for Prime 4 though.  Thanks for the email, and for listening.

    • Tweet @runjumpstomp   

      • @RunJumpStomp Question 1: Which game would you buy for the Switch: Skyrim, XenoCron 2, or Fire Emblem Warriors? Question 2: Recommended 3ds game for a 5 year old? Thanks, RJS   - @valoriantheatre

      • I had fun fighting the bosses again.  I like that I can now go back anytime I want to fight them (take pictures)

      • The last “dungeon” was awesome - Easily the best dungeon in the game.  

        • Used all of Links abilities

        • The boss at the end was insane on Hard mode

          • Regen was really fast.

      • Whats up,  RJS

      • Just a question about Xenoblade. I know you are into these games and looking forward to this yourself. I have this game coming my way for Christmas however i am already thinking of returning it and picking something else. My sole reason is the auto attack feature. Not sure how that works. Never played game with that feature. Kind of picked game due to hype. I like controlling my character in fights. Thoughts sir. Thank you
        John

        • Autoattack is that way by design I believe.  Anyone who’s played the game have hope for John?

      • Lettuce Jump - I started listening over the summer, and wish I had started sooner. It’s nice to listen to a podcast that focuses on the nintendo’s console that has taken the world by storm. Most podcasts are weekly for about an hour, but RJS hits up your podcast library three times a week with a fresh up to date take on the latest and greatest from Nintendo. Thanks for staying consistent. Also nice to hear from a man who works and has a family, like myself. I look forward to Tues, Thurs and Sat updates, and will recommend your podcast. Matt from New York (Shoutout to my future gamer Grayson, my ten month old son) PS. Last episode you said people are normally mario or mega man fans. I love ‘em both. They are different for sure, but mega man is fantastic!

      • Hey there.

        I love the your show and thankfully discovered some month ago. Of course I was listening to last episode and you mentioned not understanding how Zelda won best direction and that struck me because I thought the same. It wasn’t until the champions ballad that I realized how good the direction is. There are 5 new cutscenes in the ballad. And if you watch these I noticed how skillful the camera work is. The angles are good. The positioning is good. The pacing is good. The focus is an emotional one and it is clearly presented. The characters are portrayed well,  and the delivery of their lines.  (Though the writing could’ve been better)
        :)

        Thanks again for you doing you

      • Jimbio 88 - Just want to say thanks to you RJS!  I used to be a hardcore gamer but as I’ve got older, I don't have time to delve into a long game.  That being said, i gravitate towards switch.  I want one and hope to acquire one over the holiday!  Thanks again and keep up the great show!!!

      • RJS,

        Just wanted to give you a big shout out... because you have, by a long shot, the absolute best Nintendo Podcast on the planet! While other Podcasts more or less dress to impress, making their shows sort of a generic brand, you RunJumpStomp(lol) your show the way you see fit. While still taking some constructive criticism and shuffling some things around for the benefit of your viewers, the show still has a one-of-a-kind feeling to it. I can certainly tell that your show derives from your passion of video games, and most of all... Nintendo. i Highly respect that and have been listening faithfully for a couple months. I have recently subscribed on Twitch and joined the Discord. i Personally never have the opportunity to catch the live show or chat on the discord due to my work schedule, which is 70 hrs a week. I still listen to each episode daily and want to thank you for helping me catch up on all things Nintendo. Keep up the awesome show.

        Sincerely,

        ottoman91

      • 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!

      • 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
