This week everyone has a "new" game for Switch, all of which are actually old games that are now on Switch. James reviewed point-and-click adventure Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse. It's a solid point-and-click with an outrageously convoluted plot, but if you're looking for Gnostic art thieves, has he got the game for you. Jon and James spent three hours of quality time playing the NES Games Online, now part of Switch Online Service. Jon has some thoughts on Dr. Mario that some might call controversial, but I think he's just worried about pill poppers hiding in the shadows. Greg got his hands on Sega Ages: Thunder Force IV. I'm not sure why they dropped the correct title, Lightening Force, but I'm still looking for some software to touch-up my smile. Guillaume closes out New Business with overhead racing game Mantis Burn Racing. No mantises were harmed in the making of this modern-day Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road.
After the break we expose some dark email secrets. This week we figure out how Nintendo can monetize nostalgia with 2019's shared Smash Bros. and Game Boy anniversaries, and create super hero video games for Liam Neeson vehicles. You too can propose a video game treatment for The Grey by sending us an email.
