There are a two swears in this episode. I’ll list them here so that you can avoid them if you want to
or if you have little ones listening along
When we’re discussing Call of Duty Black Ops, B calls himself a cheap bastard.
When B is talking about his November schedule, he drops an F-bomb (around the 1 hour 17 minute mark)
When B is talking about Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, he drops a second F-Bomb (around the 1 hour, 19 minute and 30 second mark)
We discuss what it would be like if the olympics took place at Brighton Pleasure Beach, and the possible range of British-specific sports which could be brought to the Brighton based olympics, some of which are:
The Deep Fried Eating Challenge
see a link in the external links section for an explanation of this
We had B back on the podcast - Sqidgey had locked him in the dungeon for mentioning the Switch so much, the last time that he was on. We talk about E3, the Nintendo Switch (there’s a surprise), and how this summer has been re-assuringly quite for AAA titles (so far) which helps us to get through our collective backlog of games.
Sqidgey mentions his recent difficulties in playing battle royale-type multiplayer games - mainly revolving around communication issues between players. We also talk about how Squidgey, B and myself don’t play a lot of online multiplayer games; we play a lot of in-person (same console or LAN based) multiplayer games, though.
We also have a discussion about Mario Tennis Aces and how folks were complaining (at the time we recorded the podcast) that it’s not a tennis simulation, even though it’s not marketed as a tennis simulation. In fact none of the Mario series of video games are simulations - with the exception of Mario Paint.
We then have the revelation that I, apparently, played Bayonetta on easy mode (through my judicious use of the “mash the bloody buttons” tactic).
Squidgey talks to us about his newest purchase: A Picade kit

Which is essentially a Raspberry Pi Modelb 3B+, an 8 inch screen, an arcade stick, and kit to build a case around it which resembles an old-school arcade cabinet. It currently looks really cool, and Squidgey already has some plans for modifying it, but check out some of the photos he’s taken of it:
We then talk about the very few Resident Evil games that Squidgey HASN’T played:
Resident Evil on the Gameboy Colour
Resident Evil 2 on the Game.Com
Resident Evil 2 on the Gameboy Advance
seriously, this is a thing. Check the external links of interest
We also discuss a recent homebrew system for the Nintendo Switch, and how it has a piracy warning and copy protection system. This leads us on to a discussion of how the Nintendo Switch’s protection system was originally cracked, and who usually finds these exploits
spoiler alert: it’s never the pirates who figure it out first
In this part alone, we almost beat our current total number of games mentioned in a single episode. This episode’s running total is 58 games, and our highest so far was 63 in 58 minutes

Spoiler Break Music
We used an extra piece of music in this episode of the podcast (during the spoiler break). It’s an amazing, chilled out electronic track called “Spectrum (Subdiffusion Mix)” by Foniqz. The full version of the song is available at BandCamp
