The Gaming Outsider – Episode 128: Nintendo Switch Debate

This week the crew welcomes community member Matt Bressoud to discuss the Nintendo Switch presentation and everything we’ve learned from it. We dive into the launch titles, the price of the system, and what Nintendo needs to do in order to succeed where the Wii U failed. News this week includes a season pass for Resident Evil VII, a cancelled Darth Maul game and Reggie’s excuse for the NES Classic shortage. Games we’ve played this week include Hyrule Warriors Legends, FIFA 16, Titanfall 2 and Super Toss the Turtle. Our community topic centers around our community’s own thoughts on the Nintendo Switch launch. We also added our Final Fantasy XV spoilercast to the end of the episode that was available to our Patreon subscribers previously, so think of this episode as a 2 for 1.
