Gaming with the Moms Episode 74: Emo Owls with Hoodies

Nintendo Switch


We were off last week, which means there’s a lot to talk about. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch! What do we think about it? Well, we already know what Stephen thinks about it. But what does Nicole think? The voice actor strike is still going and the actors have been picketing southern California studios. Are their demands reasonable? And what are the implications for the larger development community if they are? There’s a big new update for Animal Crossing New Leaf. Valve is saying “no-no” to developers who doctor their screenshots. ThatGameCompany has given some teasers for their new game that tell us next to nothing. And GameStop hasn’t been selling as many games as they would like.
