Don't worry, that's 100% sexual. Look at that smile! How could it be anything but?

You might have heard that James was at E3 last week. Now he's going to make you listen to him ramble on incoherently about it. It's a strong opening for New Business, or for an interrogation. Jon's been playing Fortnite with his fellow kids, both on Switch and Xbox One X: The world's most powerful video game consoleā„¢. It turns out everything just works, the game is a blast, and moving between platforms is a breeze - unless you ever thought about Fortnite while within a 20 mile radius of a PS4. Given James' laborious E3 discussion, we somehow exhausted all the time for the first segment, so we continue New Business after the break. Greg has played through the Octo Expansion DLC for Splatoon 2, and finds it a challenging addition to the package. This is where I'd include some kind of immature joke about "Octo Expansion", but the article is already late this week. Lastly, Guillaume finds his true love in Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus. Look out, the Grim Reaper of online leaderboards has a new haunt.

Not content to waste your time with a New Business-only episode, the team manages to squeeze in a couple of emails. This week we try to decide if Smash Ultimate is TOO dependent on Smashes of Christmas Past, and then we play some weird CFL-like version of Nintendo Franchise Executioner. You can line up extra receivers on our longer fields and score a rouge by sending us an email.

Just a correction: Save the World mode in Fortnite is not available on Switch yet.

Also Fortnite kicks you to the eShop when you want to buy V-Bucks (the in-game currency). On your eShop email receipt it notes the Switch as the platform so they know what platform you're buying the currency from.

Good show.

Really cool to hear more impressions from E3 2018.

Love the show but couldnt disagree more with your assessments of mega man 9 and 10. You guys seem to be really wrapped up in the mechanics of the game- no slide, no charge... but you missed the forest for the trees with 9. 9 for the first time in the classic series gave each robot master's powers something to actually do besides be short cuts for boss fights for example. I get it, you dont like that they went 8 bit but to pretend nothing new was added beyond a gender...
