So, I had a thought about something that’s lacking in the switch firmware, the social / sharing integrations for the switch is not good. It feels like it’s the bare minimum for sharing a video/photo to fb/twitter. For example, an autocomplete on a # tag would be really nice. as well as maybe a google drive / dropbox integration where I could save my video out to a cloud service without having to physically take my sd card to a computer. While I’m at it, the typing on the switch screen (since I primarily use it handheld) is not very good either. I don’t think Nintendo has done a lot of work to make that experience very good. Typing on a switch is not nearly as important as on a phone, but I think nintendo could take a note from iOS/android by helping the user “cheat” while typing.For example, you can change the touch areas for the screen based on the word that is being spelled, and provide more autocomplete suggestions at the top of the keyboard. Or perhaps allow third party keyboards? I know that all of these are not trivial, and that the biggest smartphone manufacturers still struggle with thisI guess this is only a problem for those of us who are primarily handheld users of the system. Really the keyboard isn’t my biggest gripe, it’s the lack of cloud storage integration.

Hi Bill, Great idea on a Zelda X-COM-type strategy game, similar to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. I was thinking of even taking your idea a step forward and incorporating past and present enemies from the Zelda franchise. Your team can be made up of Link, Zelda, Sheik, Impa, and maybe the 4 Champions from Breath of the Wild as well…each with their own skill set. Link with his bow and sword and possibly hookshot, Zelda with more magical powers, etc. Then, each level could move you across Hyrule, closer to Ganon’s castle. There are so many enemies from the franchise to choose from as well…Bokoblins, Lynels, ChuChus, Darknuts, Lizalfos, Moblins, Wizzrobes, Stalfos…and more!! Each area could have a mid and final boss and then lead up to a possible Ganondorf/Ganon battle at the end! I would love to see Nintendo put this into the hands of Ubisoft and see what they come up with! On the flip-side, my ideal game would be to have Square-Enix create a Zelda JRPG set in Hyrule, similar to Dragon Quest!! I just finished Dragon Quest XI and was pulled in by how good this game looked and the deep story behind each character. Love hearing everyone’s ideas–and it’s great to see Nintendo finally taking in new ideas for their IPs 🙂 Thanks, LuvMyNES
Hey Bill,Caught your last episode and you mentioned that you were looking for some Indy titles that might need some attention? Here’s one for ya – Lost in Harmony it’s a mobile port that was on sale for one dollar I was skeptical at first when I noticed it on the eshop because of the price but let me tell you it’s one of the best rhythm games( besides rock band, guitar hero,) I have played, your this kid cruising around on his skateboard avoiding obstacles and moving to the beat of the song also has a fantastic soundtrack and challenging at times.I find the best way to play is in handheld mode with headphones on. Definitely worth the $1 and some.Thank you for making great content on a consistent basis.

Hey Bill, On Switchcraft, you asked about potential Waluigi games. My suggestion: Waluigi’s Time Machine Waluigi travels through time to other iconic Nintendo games (think NES Remix) and wins battles that other heroes originally won. Of course, he is cheating so these would not be difficult challenges until later in the game. Waluigi is basically stealing glory. As you win, the original Nintendo games are replaced with a Waluigi version and picture. James aka Legolawyer
Hey Bill. Just picked up Mario rabbids recently because it was on sale and so far I’ve loved it. I was a little unsure about this game because tactical turn based games didn’t really interest me but I figured I’d try it since it was on sale. While I was playing i was thinking about other franchises that would be great capitalize on Maro rabbids success and then I thought of MegaMan. How awesome would it be to have Mario vs MegaMan or MegaMan vs rabbids. All the amunition MegaMan has and skills would be perfect for this game. What do you think? Love the show, keep up the great work
