      • How awesome is the ARMS theme song? It just gets me so pumped!!! I think it fits very well. And I find myself leaving the game on the title screen often just to listen to the music.

        I'm having a blast with Arms so far. Finally beat Grand Prix level 4 so I can get my butt kicked online now. Hopefully I can catch a stream soon and get my butt kicked by you! It would be an honor. I'll add you on Switch later today and hopefully I'll see you in the ring at some point. I think my name on there is just Fox.

        Thanks for the podcasts, keep em coming. My dock sock should be in the mail soon. Thanks again for all your hard work.

      • Stumbled on this podcast a few episodes ago.  I have to say it's a breath of fresh air.  I will say it's probably my fave switch podcast yet.  RJS is not afraid to call Nintendo out when they do something ridiculous but also does not overly hate on the Switch for silly reasons.  A well balanced podcast on switch news.  Keep it up.  I’ll be listening.

      • I have a problem with Nintendo bringing so many deluxe versions “ports” of Wii U titles to the Switch.  I want new games.  I was loyal and bought a Wii U.  Most of these ports I’ve already bought and played.  I’ll admit they are good games, but I feel like Nintendo is ignoring its loyal customers in favor of people that couldn’t be bothered the first time around.

      • Really enjoy the family friendly podcast.  I don’t have to look any further to get my Nintendo Switch news. Keep it up!!

    • Someone called in to the show and left a voicemail.

      • Hey, Bill. I'm a listener to your SwitchCraft podcast and I wanted to call and ask you a question regarding the headset. That's Splatoon  is releasing.  Do you think that Nintendo will make this readily available, or will be kind of like something Nintendo, usually does where it's really hard to find. I think it looks cool and the reason. I think it's going to sell it because it seems like the only way for most people to be able to mix the audio together with people like me that don't have a bunch of audio stuff laying around. I don't have any mixture of any kind so I kind of have to be getting this I was thinking if you have to wear ear buds under like a set of headphones, but this looks like a solution well  not a great solution, but I just wondering if you think this is going to be sold out everywhere, I know. To find it just looking for your input. Thanks a lot. I love your show and PS. Please. Do not play my voice from there. I hate my voice. Thank you.

        • This isn’t made by Nintendo, it's officially licenced and made / distributed by HORI

        • Right now it isn’t announced outside of Japan

        • I’m sure there are going to be alternatives to this.

      • I learned about Bill and RJS (Run, Jump, Stomp) via, Scott Johnson and Brian Ibbott (from The Morning Stream) when they announced they were buying dock socks for their switches from his wife’s Etsy page. (Check it out: etsy.com/shop/RunJumpStomp).  I ended up doing the same and discovered the great content that he offers on gaming and partially the Switch with his Switchcraft podcast.

        To be honest, I’m totally baffled Bill hasn't’ been more widely discovered, - he’s among a select group of content creators that takes care of his audience with good equipment (sound is clear and crisp) and attention to the smaller details with bumpers, segment intros & transitions, as well as great 8-bit style music throughout.  So many podcasters fail to pay attention to their content past the “talk” and Bill gives the listener a product that’s both informative past regular speculation (his analysis of why Nintendo gave developers have products priced higher on The Switch compared to other platforms - game developers needing to hit the $24.99 mark to get prime product placement in retail - goes far beyond the typical “greedy companies” answer most podcasts give) while being fun and easy to listen to -

        The guy has a voice for radio.  I strongly urge you to put the Switch Crafton your regular rotation and if you enjoy it as much as I do, consider supporting him via patreon, Amazon purchases (this is a no-brainer and so easy) or writing a review and telling a friend.  Best of luck rising to the top, bill - I look forward to seeing where your emerging content goes from here!
