Can you believe it’s already been three years since Nintendo launched the Switch? Boy, time sure does fly when you’re drowning in a backlog of unplayed games huh? I can remember the night clearly, standing in line amongst dozens of other dorks, freezing my mushrooms off in the San Francisco wind. The excitement was palpable as we watched that clock count down until midnight and I couldn’t wait to throw a nice chunk of change at a Switch console, copy of Breath of the Wild, pro controller and Zelda, GuardianLinkLink Rider and Bokoblin amiibo (not to mention somewhere in the neighborhood of 4-7 Fieldwork IPA’s and probably a late night slice). To celebrate Nintendo’s hybrid console entering its middle age (in typical Nintendo system years that is), I thought it would be fun to take a look at precisely which titles I’ve spent the most time playing during these past 156 weeks.

Nintendorks Radio 2018 Pizzacast: Dang Rat Thins!

E3 has come and gone, and we definitely waited a week and a half to talk about it because all that news was just too hot to touch! Ouch!

Joining us this week is our old friend Kevin, and with his help we tackle all the important topics: What the hell is Death Stranding? If Olimar’s helmet cracks and no one is watching, does it stay cracked? Can we, the Nintendorks, change the course of Nintendo’s release schedule with A SINGLE TWEET?

Find the answers to these questions and more in this week’s episode!
