    The screen of my son’s Switch just goes orange when he switches it on. Has anyone else had this?

    Huh….Godzilla vs Kong was good.

    Maybe StarLord vs Stoner will be just as good?

    Jack Black though. Dude is always awesome. I guarantee that soundtrack gets some metal riff on some mario music piece by Tenacious D and it will be glorious (and summon satan).

    Just the standard ones at first- Super Mario 64 and Kart and Tennis, Ocarina, Starfox, etc. Although they've confirmed in the future they'll have more, like Majora's Mask and Paper Mario and Banjo-Kazooie and Pokemon Snap. I'd like to play the original Paper Mario someday (though Thousand Year Door would be even better). They're even selling N64 controllers again (and Sega Genesis controllers too).

    The Kirby news leaked earlier, and some of it was announcements of announcements (yay, Animal Crossing update), but still some good news, like a Bayonetta 3 trailer and Splatoon is still going with a third game. Not sure about the voice cast but I'll be willing to give the movie a watch.

    I recently played Ocarina through to the end for the first time believe it or not. My save was corrupted by a GameShark in 2000 and I never finished it or restarted. Glad I finished it on 2DS but also glad it'll be on Switch for others.

    Its honestly just a really good game, even today.

    Watched the B3 trailer now. Very onboard with Kaiju battles. Was it the original VA? It sounded like her but she was hinting the other day the project might have passed on bringing her back.

    Cannot think of someone who is less suited to playing Mario than Chris Pratt.

    The weirdest part is that they announced Charles Martinet would be making a cameo in the film. Why not just let him play Mario in this, he's been voicing the character for nearly three decades now.

    You forgot that all CGI movie casting these days is an onslaught of big-name actors regardless of voice acting credentials. Thanks, Katzenberg.

    How much do you want to bet that Chris Pratt will be playing Chris Pratt and not be doing an Italian accent? Same with Charlie Day. I think they'll be doing a "hyper" version of themselves ala The Lego Movie and we won't actually hear "authentic Nintendo sounding Mario" until later on in the movie as an Easter Egg voiced by Charles Martinet?

    Bayonetta 3 due in 2022. Finally.

    Changing tack, all the benefits of OLED Switch are for mobile gaming, right? As they look to be on the same track that PS5 and XBX took.

    Namely sacrifice to the gods to get lucky or employ SJ as an acquisition agent.

    Looks like old Switch prices have started to fall too.
