Debating the value of Nintendo Switch Online | Podcast

Latest episode available to download now, takes a deeper dive on the big announcements from Nintendo Direct

On our latest podcast, we take a deeper dive into the announcements from the recent Nintendo Direct -- particularly the decision to lock N64 and Genesis/Mega Drive games to a new, more expensive tier.

We discuss Nintendo's approach to online and the subscription model, the value of making retro games available on modern platforms, and the baffling price tag for those classic controllers.

Elsewhere, we discuss other highlights of the Direct -- such as Kirby's The Last Of Us -- and the lowlights (hello, Mr Pratt).

Title music composed by Thomas Marchant. Episode mastered by Alix Attenborough.
