Initial thoughts on Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Camera is horrible

The game shines in local multiplayer

I didn’t enjoy playing on Heroic difficulty, Friendly was way more fun. Ignoring the synergy stuff made the game a lot more fun as well.

The game does an extremely bad job of teaching you how to play.

I like it and will be playing more

Hey Bill, 

One thing I think people are overlooking about the OG Switch is that it is supposed to be easily hackable. Because of that I intend to hang onto mine indefinitely, even after I upgrade to another model at some point. One day it will be an awesome portable way to play ALL of my retro favorites on the go as well as my Switch library. 

Email From Isaac

On the latest lite Switch, you discussed wanting a normal Switch that sells without a dock. Well, in Japan they do have a skew that ships without one. 
Now I guess they assume all Americans are snotty Xbox players that only play on the TV, (kidding of course) so they don’t sell it in America, but if you can find it cheap to import, it’s an option. 

Thanks for the show!

Hi Bill,

Just wanted to send some quick thoughts on the Nintendo Switch Lite. I’ve been listening to a lot of feedback on your show and online and I’m surprised at how many seem down on the price and the new Switch Lite itself.

The name I get doesn’t make much sense now that it doesn’t dock—but the name “Switch” is so popular right now that of course Nintendo is going to keep the name. Plus, it so similar to the Nintendo Switch and plays almost all of the same games so I think changing the name would create too much confusion.

For the price—I think $200 is spot on. Nintendo is one of the few gaming companies that actually make money on their hardware. Dropping the price of the Switch Lite too low would basically kill sales for the actual Nintendo Switch. The $200 price tag immediately sounds more tempting than the $300 price of the Switch and many gamers won’t care about the dock, HD rumble or detachable joycon—they want to play the games that the Switch has to offer, without coughing up another $100.

Having said that—I think it won’t take long before the price of both the Switch and Switch Lite drop as the new Playstation and Xbox are released. I would imagine a new Switch Pro is right around the corner to compete with the announcements of the new consoles from their competitors.

I’m excited for the Switch Lite and I love the colors!! I already own a Switch but I’ll definitely be picking up a Switch Lite on release.

Thanks, Bill!! Loving the more frequent episodes 🙂

Hey Bill good morning: 
       I will make this short and sweet. 
First I kind of got a curious question for. I been listening to your show since before switch was released. I actually was shopping for wii u at time when I saw a Facebook post about nx. That was a year and a half before release date of switch. So I been listening since than but I have unlimited data with T mobile and stream every thing and I know you always thanking people for downloading your show but do you get the credit for people who stream podcast with their data.

Now about the switch light correct me if i am wrong but if you have the OG switch and pay for Nintendo Switch Online would it be as easy as just uploading your save data from cloud backup and I think you could even use that method if you upgraded your sd card. 
I am with a lot of people switch lite is not for me. I like playing on my TV and being able to play in bed. 

I just thought I comment because tour last show someone had good idea leaving OG in dock and using the lite for undock mode.

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

C-net interviews Doug Bowser about the Switch Lite

We believe the two systems will complement each other and coexist in the market,” Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said in a conversation with CNET, distinguishing the Lite as a “compact, lightweight, dedicated gaming device.

Doug Bowser (via Cnet)

There are no plans, or nothing to announce, in terms of further variations of Joy-Con.

Doug Bowser (via Cnet)

Yes, you will have the ability to transfer between devices, your gameplay experiences. More to come on there, but that is the intention,

Doug Bowser (via Cnet)

Investors are bullish on Switch Lite

The OG Switch is getting new hardware as well!

Nintendo Introduces Nintendo Switch Lite, A Device Dedicated to Handheld Game Play

In a video today, Nintendo introduced Nintendo Switch Lite, a device designed specifically to play Nintendo Switch games in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch Lite system launches Sept. 20 at a suggested retail price of $199.99 and will be available in three different colors: yellow, gray and turquoise. A carrying case and screen protector set for Nintendo Switch Lite will also be available.
 “Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more color and price point options,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favorite Nintendo Switch games.”


 The flagship Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017 and offers three different play modes: playing in TV mode by placing the system into a Nintendo Switch dock, playing cooperatively or competitively in tabletop mode by sharing Joy-Con controllers and playing in handheld mode. The system comes with either Gray Joy-Con controllers or Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con controllers.
 Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the flagship version of Nintendo Switch. It has no kickstand and, as a dedicated handheld gaming device, does not support video output to a TV. Therefore, it does not come with a dock or HDMI cable. For a full list of the differences between Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, visit https://www.nintendo.com/switch/compare.


 The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode*, although some games will have restrictions. Compatible game modes will be listed on the back of game packaging and in Nintendo eShop.


 Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite owners can get together to enjoy compatible multiplayer titles like Super Mario Maker 2Mario Kart 8 DeluxeSplatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate together via Nintendo Switch Online** or local wireless multiplayer***.
 For additional information about Nintendo Switch Lite, visit https://www.nintendo.com/switch/lite/.
 * For games that support tabletop mode, players can wirelessly connect Joy-Con controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. In these cases, users will need to have a device to recharge Joy-Con controllers, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.

Better Battery

The Nintendo Switch Lite also features a battery life of 3-7 hours, a slight improvement over the original’s 2.5-6.5 hours.

due to a more power-efficient chip layout, as well as the lack of additional batteries in the built-in controllers

No Adjustable Brightness (I’m guessing just Auto)

Is this the end of the 3DS?

We’ll continue to support our 3DS family of systems as long as there is demand,” says Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser.

A Tale of Two Switch

There is a report coming from Takashi Mochizuku of the Wall Street Journal that posits that we could expect two new Switch models this year at E3. I’ve seen many rumors like this since the Switch came out, and I’ve often written them off. As we approach 2.5 years with the Switch, the likelihood of this happening continues to increase. I personally think its too soon for Nintendo to do this. After all, the 3DS took 4 years for an upgrade to come out. But then again, the DS to the DS Lite only had a gap of 2 years.

The WSJ states that the cheaper version of the Switch will remove the vibration and detachable joy-cons, and focus more on the portable only experience. While the Pro version will focus on “enhanced features targeted at avid video gamers.” I personally don’t see a huge power boost for the Switch as an option, as that would bifurcate the market. However, I could see replacement of the old Tegra chip with something that is more efficient, giving portable users longer battery life for the Lite version, and perhaps a slightly larger screen with the same battery life for the XL version? Who knows. I’m doubtful, but anything is possible.

What do you think? Are we on the road to a new Switch? Or is the WSJ grasping at straws?

Thanks @SuperNintendad for the heads up
