    • MStefano - reviewed the show.  

      • I wish I found this podcast sooner.  I have only been listening for a few weeks now but this has already proven to be my favorite Nintendo podcast.  It is superior to others I listen to (without naming them) for a multitude of reasons.  Episodes come out frequently throughout the week so news is given timely and the episodes are short, sweet and to the point.  In addition to this, what makes the host better than most is the attention he gives to feedback (both positive and negative.  Keep up the great work RJS!

      • Will the Switch version of Batman telltale be all 5 episodes or just 1 to start?  They also tweeted Wondering why RBI Baseball 17 is coming to the switch.  This season is almost over, why not wait for next year to release ‘18?

      • Love the podcast. Now that I am downloading a lot of your suggestions, I feel a good topic to discuss is expandable storage. What micro-SD cards are a must have and what one should we stay away from. I'd love to hear that on an upcoming episode!

        Thanks, and keep crushing the competition. Only Switch podcast that matters in my opinion.


        • Speed class (Go for class 10)

        • 128gb is the sweet spot for price, but if you can afford a bigger card then go for it.

        • Here is a 256 gb class 10 from Samsung expensive though
