Tonight, JV takes a break to make room for amazing Miz Sylver who manages the SwitchPass Boston community (formerly StreetPass Boston) to discuss what it takes to make your own Nintendo Switch gaming community, and what makes having one so great!
We both have our eyes on the prize this week, as we spent the week competing in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch, with tons of tourneys happening all over the place! Well alse dive deeper into Puyo Puyo Tetris and give our final evaluation on TumbleSeed.
Of course, we have all the week’s news and answer Nintendo Switch questions from our listeners.

Three years ago, Mario Kart 8 was released on the Wii U and though it was a great game, it was on a console that not many people bought. When Nintendo the Switch back in 2016, it was hinted that there would possibly be a Mario Kart title for it. Those hints prove to be true when it was announced that a port of the Wii U game would be coming to Nintendo Switch.
But as it turned out, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is not just a simple port – it adds a whole bunch of new features. So the question is, is this game worth getting on the Nintendo Switch (even if you already have it on Wii U)? Continue reading “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review”
JV pops open Puyo Puyo Tetris as KC rolls with a preview of TumbleSeed this very big week of games with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe coming out. But let’s not forget the less massive games that still deserve our attention!
We also answer your Nintendo Switch quesitons, and finally have a showdown of FITIGI vs. HITISI!

TumbleSeed is a Nintendo Switch title that I want to avoid using popular genre names to define. While it does share characteristics with roguelikes, in that you have to overcome randomly generated obstacles and death means a quick trip to start screen, I feel that lumping it in that category does its originality a disservice.
In TumbleSeed, you play a as a sentient seed that your fellow spoutlings call “TS.” Your kind lives happily on a mountain, but things are not well. Strange subterranean creatures have begun popping holes all over your homeland, making life perilous for your kind. And things will only get worst unless TS can reach the mountain’s summit and firmly plant himself there, purging their home of unnatural threats.
But that’s easier said than done… and I mean waaaaaaaayyyy easier! Continue reading “TumbleSeed: This Game is TS! (Nintendo Switch Review)”
JV gets his big sweaty hands on Wonderboy: The Dragon’s Trap for Nintendo Switch while KC grasps his moisture wicking blade in Samurai Showdown IV: Amakusa’s Revenge and brings 1-2 Switch to an Easter bonanza.
We also run down all the news, including all the new features added to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which hits next week! And in a special Community Pulse, we discuss and debate what the listeners think about a Nintendo Switch Mini.
Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct dumped a fresh batch of new Nintendo Switch games for us to talk about, particularly Arms, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. But that’s far from all of them with several Sonic titles, more NeoGeo arcade classics than you can shake a JoyCon at, and much more.
We also review the newly released Nindies, Graceful Explosion Machine and Mr. Shifty, and catch up on all the Nintendo Switch news and new releases from the past 2 weeks.
