      • Buddywl - Was looking for a podcast that talked about Nintendo Switch and I have to say this is by far the best.  If you’re looking for a way to keep up with News when it comes to Nintendo switch this is the channel for you.   The gentleman does a great job and gives great feedback while not being a fanboy in any way shape or form.

    • 60fps vs 30 fps and the Doom conversation.

    • Speaking of DOOM will most likely support motion controls for aiming.

    • Super Mario Run update coming the 29th

  • Gameplay

    • Semispheres -

      • Same world mirrored

      • Find or place portals to let you interact with the other plane.

      • Various power ups, like one that lets you place portals.  One that distracts Guards etc.

      • The core gameplay centers around using one side to distract guards to allow the other side to pass.  

      • Sometimes there are dotted lines that will get in your way.  So you can’t cross them.  

      • The game overall has a very mellow vibe, getting caught doesn’t have some huge penalty.  The music is atmospheric.  Made by the same composer as Anti-Chamber which needs a switch port.

      • Graphics are simple but effective.  (blue on the left red on the right)

      • There is a story about a guy and a robot,  I won’t get into it at all, but it plays out as a comic as you make your way through the game.

      • The game is a single player game, but could easily be a multiplayer game, which is where I think it would shine the most.

      • Adding in the ability to turn the joycons sideways for play would make playing this game multiplayer easier.  

      • Would also lead directly into what the switch is amazing for (local portable multiplayer with one system)

      • I’d definitely recommend Semispheres

      • 9.99 if you enjoy mellow puzzle games like this or the bridge, then its definitly a game for you, and 10 bucks isn’t too steep a price either.

  • Lightning Round
