Short Pause Gaming Podcast #91: In-Depth With Nintendo Switch - Is This The Nintendo Console Core Fans Have Been Waiting For?
Welcome to another exciting episo... Wait, what was that you say? The Nintendo NX? The NX was finally unveiled this past week??! After months of waiting and anticipation, Nintendo finally pulled back the curtain (ever so slightly) on their next piece of hardware. The fellas break the reveal down in-depth, while also discussing (of course) the rest of the latest and greatest in the world of gaming. Topics this week include:
- The Nintendo NX is Now Nintendo Switch - In a reveal some of thought might never come, Nintendo finally showed us our first glimpse of Nintendo Switch, the hybrid handheld/home console formerly known as NX. Is this the console Nintendo fans have been waiting for? Is this going to be enough to bring lapsed Nintendo fans back to the fold?
- The Games of Nintendo Switch - We saw some heavy hitters in the Nintendo Switch reveal trailer: Mario Kart, Splatoon, NBA 2K17, Skyrim, and what appears to be a brand new 3D Mario game. With Nintendo vowing to stay mum on Switch for the rest of the year, fans are left to wonder: Are all of these games actually going to appear on the system? And in the case of Mario Kart, Splatoon, and Mario, are these brand new entries in these revered series? Or merely updates to previously existing titles?
- Red Dead Redemption 2 is Officially Revealed - In this week's other big-time reveal, Rockstar Games officially confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming in Fall 2017 for both the PS4 and Xbox One. What can we expect from the sequel based on the game's very brief reveal trailer?
- Mark Cerny Talks PS4 Pro - Mark Cerny, Sony's technical engineering wizard, gave a presentation on the PS4 Pro this past week before sitting down with Eurogamer to talk shop. How is this system going to produce the high-fidelity visuals Sony claims it's capable of?
- The Last Guardian has Gone Gold - Here's something we never thought we'd say: The Last Guardian is finished, and it's on track for its early December release date. Does this game have any chance of living up to its ten years of hype?
- September's NPD Results - The official results are in, and while Xbox One continues to rule the hardware roost this month, sports games dominate the software charts. Can Xbox continue its hardware momentum throughout the holidays? Plus, which game is inconspicuous by its absence on the software charts?
- Plus, this week's new releases and much, much MORE!
