Hey Bill,

I was looking at the prices of the Nintendo Switch and the Lite Switch and I realized that the Lite Switch is only $100 dollars cheaper than the regular Switch. I feel this is a huge mistake on Nintendo’s part if you add up the numbers. The main things that come with the regular Switch in the box are: a dock, an HDMI cord, joy-con straps, and a charger. The Lite switch only comes with a charger and the console. The dock, joy-con straps, and HDMI cable that don’t come with the Switch Lite are about $95. Meaning that when you buy a regular Switch you are paying bout $5 for: HD rumble, removable and replaceable joy-cons, a kick-stand, a bigger screen and controls, TV accessibility, more games, etc.  You get all of this stuff for an amazing deal compared to the Switch Lite all for the price of a little bit smaller battery life. For these reasons, I would pick a regular Nintendo Switch over the Lite Switch any day. While I can see the Switch Lite for lil’ Timmy, I am not letting Nintendo fool me. (I like to crunch numbers if you couldn’t tell)

Almost your biggest fan,

Hey Bill,

Just wanted to share my thoughts on the switch lite. I’m a little disappointed with the price and no real upgrades to justify the cost. I think that when this releases in September for $200 dollars, people online will be selling their older Nintendo Switch’s on (Facebook Market) ( OfferUp) or (Craigslist) for the same price or lower. So why purchase this when I could get a better switch? I feel like I will wait for the next rumored Upgraded larger model in the future.Thanks for the consistent great content

Prime Day

Nontendo

We had originally planned for PC distribution through Steam,” Ys Net said. “In response to backers who have requested Steam keys for their rewards, we discussed offering the keys on the day of release. However, coordination with the sales policies of the involved companies was untenable, and as a result we are not able to make a day one distribution option for Steam keys available.

Shenmue Developer Ys Net

Sony sees Microsoft as its main competitor in the next generation, with Google a potential threat in the mid- to long-term as internet technology advances, one company official said.Nintendo Co. isn’t perceived as a major rival, the person said, because its main users tend to be younger than PlayStation’s core demographic.

PlayStation has been one of the most successful mass-market products of the past quarter-century; the PlayStation 4 alone is expected to pass 100 million units this year. Sony’s latest thinking puts less stress on overall sales numbers and more on the most-profitable segment of the market: the devoted fans who buy big-budget titles, such as Bethesda Softworks LLC’s “Fallout” series and Take-Two Interactive SoftwareInc.’s “Red Dead Redemption.”

A second Sony official said the company believes people buy a videogame console to play graphics-heavy games.

Wall Street Journal

Sony is concentrating its attention on large software publishers as it gets ready for the next PlayStation, according to executives at Sony and software makers. In general, publishers want their games on multiple platforms to maximize sales, while console makers look to make deals for exclusive content or an initial period of exclusive sales.

Some executives at smaller game makers say they have felt snubbed by Sony, in contrast to Nintendo. At the Tokyo Game Show in September, Nintendo is supporting events to showcase independent game developers. Sony used to do the same, but isn’t planning to this year, the first Sony official said.

Sony still welcomes games from independent studios, the first Sony official said, but the emphasis is on strengthening relationships with large publishers since resources are limited. The thinking is, the official said, that people buy a console to play high-quality games available only on that platform, not smaller games also available on smartphones.

Hey Bill,

I was just listening to your episode talking about how Pokémon Sword and Shield won’t include the National Dex. Now.. I will preface this by saying that this is coming totally from someone who has never played a Pokémon game before; therefore I just don’t “get it.”

The Pokémon Company by no means has to include all of the Pokémon from previous games. However, they could take a page from Nintendo’s playbook. When Smash Ultimate was announced, Nintendo was very transparent about how turning all previous characters into assist trophies would have been too much labor.. therefore they created the Spirit Mode. 

That’s pretty much my point.  Should they show some creativity like their parent-company, the Pokémon Company could very well be avoiding these PR nightmares. 

Cheers, and thank you for what you do. I love your network of shows.

Hey Bill, hope you are well.
On the last episode of Switch craft you had a brief discussion on the rewind feature in a final fantasy game.  Im in the same boat, love video games, but not the best at them. Also im 41, so lost some of my patience and skill.  In fact I would go one step further and like to see save states in all games. Playing NES online and SNES classic I have finished more games using save states than I ever did on the original consoles, and I see no shame it that. Save states have allowed me to finish  and enjoy  games that are well out of my skill level. 
If save states came as standard, I would be inclined to buy more games, for example I really want to enjoy the story and game play in cuphead and dark souls, but I know they would frustrate me, so no buy. If the developer  included save states I would buy these games  in a heart beat. Me using save states ( I’ll try not to say “save states” again!) does not affect anyone else, so I do see why the snobery towards me playing the way I want to play.
What are your thoughts.
All the best, enjoy all your shows.
Karl.

Bill, Hey, I love your show(s). I’m a life long gamer and Nintendo fan, 40-something, father of four.I heard you mention you bought new joycons because you had severe drifting problems. I was wondering what you did, if anything, to fix them?  I ask because I had terrible drift on my right joycon. It was so bad that I couldn’t even play Zelda with it; the camera would spin around uncontrollably.  I did some research and people recommended electrical contact cleaner.  I bought a can of it and really doused the joycon by spraying it into the crack around the analog stick. I literally filled it so much I could hear the liquid sloshing around inside it.  I worked the stick in circles a few times.  After it evaporated, the drift is completely gone. It’s like brand new. If you haven’t tried this, give it a shot.
