Good Evening Bill. Yesterday I traded in my Switch for the newer version. My original Switch(which I’ve had since launch) has been bricked for well over a year. I held off simply because I play in handheld mode 90% of the time regardless. But… the upgraded chip had me at hello. GameStop gave me $175 trade credit for my Bricked Switch(which I was extremely happy with) and I switched Switches! The guy at GS said something about the screen running at a lower temp or something, but I can see a difference there as well. Not as much glare for sure. I am very happy with it, I transferred my thousands of hours of save data no problem. Just wanted to share my experience with you and show. I’ve been an every episode fan for a long time. Thanks for the Show! It’s the best Nintendo podcast out there.

Here’s a few if you’re still looking for them! For me a lot of them are great SNES games that were left of the SNES classic but I still wish were available for play somewhere. Licenses be damned. Chrono TriggerSuper, Mario All Stars, Cool Spot, Actraiser, Final Fantasy IV (not on the snes Classic but incredible, influential, and defining RPG) Donkey Kong country 2 and 3, Super Bases Loaded 3: License to Steal, TMNT IV: Turtles in Time, Super Star Wars 1-3, Lufia 2, The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse

Hey Bill… just listened to NSC380. You mentioned that it was ok that the extra dock doesn’t include a power adapter since Nintendo is just using “standard” USB-C chargers now. That’s actually not correct. While USB-C is indeed a standard, Nintendo’s implementation of it is non-compliant and breaks the standard, which is why some third-party chargers were damaging Switches.
So it stands that Nintendo SHOULD be including a power adapter. Even it was compliant to the standard, anyone buying a spare dock likely needs a power supply as well. But really, Nintendo shouldn’t be breaking the USB-C standard to begin with.

I love indie games but for some reason i get indie burnout quicker than i get AAA burnout lol Many of these blended into another.. Ori looks like Hollow Knight At first glance. MY eyes are now towards a September Direct. Great job as always RJS!

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.
Wa-hoo! It’s almost time for Mario Day! Every year, people celebrate the mustached hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, on March 10, aka Mar10 Day. For this year’s celebration, Nintendo is offering a special deal on select Mario games for the Nintendo Switch system. Between Sunday, March 10, and Saturday, March 16, anyone outside the Mushroom Kingdom can purchase select Nintendo Switch systems and one of five select games starring Mario for a suggested retail price of only $329.98. That’s a savings of $30, which amounts to 50 percent off one of the games.
People that already own Nintendo Switch can still take advantage of the promotion, as they can purchase a digital download code from participating retail stores or retailer websites to redeem in Nintendo eShop for the same five Mario games for only $39.99 each. Downloaded games from Nintendo eShop live directly on the Nintendo Switch system, so it’s ideal for gamers who want all their games in one place, as there’s no need to carry around game cards.
The five Mario games featured in the promotion, which all offer fun experiences that can be enjoyed together by the whole family, are:
Super Mario Party, an uproarious party game for up to four players. Play as classic characters in a series of more than 80 fun new minigames.
Super Mario Odyssey, a massive globe-trotting 3D adventure for one to two players. Using his new ally Cappy to control objects, animals and enemies, Mario explores multiple creative Kingdoms to collect Power Moons.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the multiplayer high-speed racer. Race friends through colorful tracks using iconic characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, and even Link from The Legend of Zelda series and the Inklings from Splatoon.
Mario Tennis Aces, a multiplayer sports game. Play locally or online with friends in fast-paced tennis matches across multiple modes.
“What better way to celebrate Mario Day than by playing some of the most popular Mario games on Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This promotion is a great option for consumers who want to pick up Nintendo Switch and some hit games at a value price.”
The Nintendo Switch system + one Mario game promotion will be available in store and online at participating retailers, while the individual Mario game sale is exclusive to participating retailers that sell digital download codes.
