About this Episode

Hey all, I'm Bill, I love to talk about video games. I've been playing games since my mother used to take me to visit my grandmother at the bar she worked at (I know) and there was a Donkey Kong game there. From minute one I was hooked. I talk about all types of games, from retro classics to brand new hotness. I'm happy you decided to come by,Each week I take a deep dive into my favorite stories about Nintendo, from the latest indie release to rumors about Smash. If you're looking for Nintendo news look no farther. I try to wrap up the news three times a week in a show that I try to keep under 30 minutes.

  • Emily Rogers says that Pokemon Switch announcement isn't far away. — I just want to provide some clarification on what I said -- and what I didn't say. What I said: I believe a Pokemon game is releasing on Switch later this year. It will be a RPG with at least two versions. What I didn't say: I didn't specify whether it was a core game, a spinoff series, a remake of an older game, or a Gen 8 game. I won't be sharing anymore details. The announcement isn't that far away. All these "leaks" or "insider information" is something just about anyone could make up.
  • Rumor: Ridley and Simon Belmont to join new Super Smash Bros. roster — Vergeben, who correctly predicted that the Ninja Turtles would make their way into Injustice 2 and that Gr0h would debut in Soul Calibur (among some misses from what Vergeben is calling "bad sources"), the new Smash on Switch could host Metroid's Ridley, Castlevania's Simon Belmont, and could see the return of the Ice Climbers.

  • email from Janko — Hi Bill, First thanks for your show, I’m listening to every episode here in Germany and you’re doing a great job I want to add something to your NBA Playgrounds mention on the show, the thing that i did not hear exactly in your show was the fact, that the game Shaq Fu on SNES and Mega Drive/Genesis has a really really bad reputation and they are even playing with that in the trailers for the remake. So if the say in the trailer that the remake will be a better game, that means nothing, because the first game was, in the opinion of the reviewers, one of the baddest games out there. I personally think that a remake could be fun and I bought Playgrounds at that moment they said u would get the shaq fu for free... But I think another problem is there with that conpany, one thing that bothers me more than anything else they did is the fact, that the screenshots in the eshop are not from the switch version but from ps4 ornsomething like that, because the graphics look better (shadows) and I think that fells under he category of scam. Keep on doing your great show, and by the way, when it’s available again, is your wife shipping to Germany Best regards, Janko
