      • This is a great relatively new podcast.  I love the Nintendo sound effects between segments and I also love how quickly new episodes come out.  They keep me entertained during my work week and are very informative!  Keep up the great work, I hope to see you become more and more successful.

    • AddictArts changed their review!

      • My apologies for an average earlier review.  Thank you for reading it, and being honest with listeners.  What makes this podcast special is how quick and reliable the shows are.  The podcast is the first responder of Nintendo news.  Most are not as fast to the scene and reporting.

      • Always looking forward to it - I love the format of this show.  I subscribe to several Nintendo podcasts and like them all for different reasons.  With Switchcraft RJS has nailed the release schedule.  It is nice to get three, 30 minute episodes per week because the information covered is always relevant.  This is an informative podcast that isn’t always about “how great Nintendo is.”

      • Called it one of the top 3 Nintendo podcasts online!  I love this show!  SwitchCraft is my favorite podcast to get Nintendo-related news.  RJS is both professional and personal, thorough and concise.  His fan-service is evident as his passion for gaming comes through in his reporting.  So far, he’s produced three shows a week consistently, unless i’m mistaken.  Forget the big gaming news podcasts - SwitchCraft is pre magic!

      • For Nintendo Switch enthusiasts this is a staple to add to your podcast subscriptions.  The guy’s real job is as a teacher and it comes through in his well organized and well presented podcast.  This is the first time I’ve been motivated to check into a patreon so I could throw him a buck a month just to say thanks, as he puts in a great effort and I appreciate the timely information every other day or so.

    • On Splatoon gyro controls

      • GI Jello posted in the discord - after listening to the podcast yesterday I was excited to try the split joy con for splatoon 2. Didn't work very well for me. It feels very awkward. I'm usually not a fan of any motion controls though but don't mind using gyro aiming for splatoon.  Interested to hear other feedback. I will probably just stick with the pro controller for now

      • Beats Alive posted to the discord - Motion controls for Splatoon 2 is a no-go.  That was way too awkward.

    • On video services like Netflix and YouTube for the Switch

      • Capt_Logun posted in the discord - Imagine a world where you’re watching a show on Netflix and someone wants to watch their show on the main tv; Easy to imagine right? Now imagine walking over and picking up your streaming box and walking to another room and placing it down and having it pick of right where you left off in seconds. The ease of gaming from one room to the next with the content you’re binging. I love the idea that I can shift location while watching shows with minimal clicks through menus.

      • I love the anecdotal family talk that fits into your Nintendo lifestyle of which you share on your podcast, it's this that has drove me to ask a question.  A bit of background, my almost 3yr old daughter Indie (a reference to my love of indie games) recently completed the first level of Super Mario Land on the Gameboy I grew up playing the original Pokémon games on. This was her first video game level completed and although proud I was left with a question.  

        How do I continue to introduce her to video games? The only other game she has ever played was Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with the joy-con steering wheels and all assists turned on, she loved this and I cherished the moment along with her.
        I know this is a personal question and I would not hold it against you to not answer but I relate to your podcast perhaps most on a fellow fatherly gamer level and just wondered how you introduced your kids to gaming and how you progressed those skills.
        I'd very much enjoy this subject to be a segment on one of your podcasts (just a suggestion), givin' some of your past experiences as I would love nothing more than to share my passion for Nintendo and games with my daughter as she grows.


        Keep up the great work, and we will all keep listening and coming back for more.

    • Tfox245 - A fantastic podcast with a great upload schedule!

      • When I first discovered this podcast I wasn’t sure if I’d like it because of the lack of multiple hosts, but to my surprise, I actually like it more without people arguing and talking over each other.  Also I love how often episodes are made;  no waiting around for a once-a-week show here.  It seems like they’re made every day or so, so the news that is discussed is ultra relevant to when you’re listening.  Top notch production quality as well, no cheap microphones or echoing audio.  Everything sounds very professional.  The unique nintendo sound bites to transition between topics is a nice touch.  Within a couple weeks this has already become my favorite Nintendo podcast, and the host is very knowledgeable with not just Nintendo topics but the gaming industry as a while, and he really does have a a great radio voice.

    • Capt_Logun messaged me on Discord

      • Is the SNES classic mini a gauging tool for the online plans for the Switch? We already know two major things that support my theory that it is. One, the online plans were pushed back to 2018 instead of this fall. Basically when the SNES classic is being released. Two the Classic is only going to be available till the end of 2017, potentially when the online plans will go live. They’ve already talked about not being sure about SNES games for the online plans. They saw the demand for NES and two of the three titles from the NES Classic were mentioned for the online plans next year. I think the SNES will help them decide if there’s still a market for this generation especially since they haven’t pushed SNES ports to the New 3DS lately.
        They don’t want to keep making these things, it’s limited but that makes me think they have plans to do something else with these games later on.
        Just some thoughts I had and wanted to hear your two cents

    • Jon emailed the show

      • Hey hey!
        I just wanted to get your opinion on some more SNES classic stuff.  I saw an article that someone shared on Facebook which said the NES classic and SNES classic might be coming to the Switch. Now I don't know where these articles came from, and I didn't really read much into them. I don't like playing internet detective (that's your job). Do you think this could be true at all? Did you hear anything about this? It seems like a good idea to me because I feel like it'll be very hard to get an SNES classic. But it also seems too easy. Nintendo doesn't seem like they like to make things easy for us.

        I can see this from both points of view. Why pay $80 for a digital games bundle. Most people want the physical system because it's just that cool. But for most people that can't get a hold of this thing, I feel like it's a good alternative. Personally, I'd pay $80 just for a digital copy of Starfox 2, but I'm just a huge Starfox fan. That brings me to another point: why can't Nintendo release Starfox 2 on switch? There's no reason this shouldn't be done and sold for like $20. Thoughts?

        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.

      • 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.

      • 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.
