Episode 505: Switchmas Presents
« on: January 13, 2017, 03:08:04 AM »

The day of the big Switch reveal is finally at hand, and we went live at its conclusion to discuss everything.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/rfn/43976/episode-505-switchmas-presents

Nintendo's late-night Switch conference could not deter the intrepid RFN crew. In a move best attributed to false confidence, they resolved to do a live show immediately following Nintendo's presentation, late into the night and while the dust was still setting. Joined by former host Dr. Jonathan Metts, and a few call-in guests, they broke down the announced price, the games, and Nintendo's kooky presentation style.

Sure, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still looks good, but Super Mario Odyssey has creepy human-proportioned people. Yeah, Mario has some amazing art, but Xenoblade 2 is going full anime in 2017. Then again, so is a voice acted Breath of the Wild. Want to hear about Joy-Cons, we have impressions from Switch developer and friend of the show Syrenne McNulty. Arms has online play, so we can all live out James' fantasy of punching Jon Lindemann in the head, over the Internet.

Sound frenetic? It was. If you're looking for hot takes, these were fresh out of the oven. Thanks to everyone who joined us!

THE LAMB IS WATCHING!

"Hot."
"Takes."
Please tell me Lindy does his Yoshidious impression with this phrase again.
Please please please.
Oui, Mon Gars!

It seems to work for me? Can you try deleting it and redownloading? We had to create a new version of it at one point and maybe you got the bad one.

I'm personally exited and I'm a nintendo stooge. But I do wonder how we not go down Wii U route again. I only saw two ways to success, either Wii style mainstream craze or have all the shared games from xb1/ps4 and get all those guys.

I did a fresh rebuild of all the files so please try redownloading them. Just to be sure, you're using the M4A feed right? Sorry it's taking so long to figure this out, sometimes iTunes can be a pain.

Great episode y'all! :) Syrenne's enthusiasm for Switch is infectious haha, really wanna try ARMS now. Lil' surprised at the reaction to real people in Mario Odyssey though, I thought it was supercool. The shaded-out silhouettes remind me of how the pedestrians look in Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Maybe it's just the proportionality? To me the trailer looked like a big-budget Pixar animation or something, hype is real.
