LGR: Episode 44 - Nintendo Switch Hands-On Event Extrasode

January 20, 2017

Welcome once again to Lapsed Gamer Radio. To complement our recent extrasode on the Nintendo Switch Presentation, pre-orderers Mark and Lee jump on the Mics once again and are thrilled to be joined by LGR alumni and now creator of the Honourable Mentions podcast - Mark ‘Chazzee’ Reay. 

Chazzee was one of the lucky few who managed to attend the London Nintendo Switch hands-on event this month and on this extra episode he gives us his impressions of both the hardware and the software Nintendo were showcasing at the event. In addition to our discussion of the Switch ‘tech’ and launch games line-up, we also revisit some talking points arising from the multitude of Switch announcements which have followed the Presentation and Treehouse live streams. Plus, members of the LGR community have got in touch to share their views on Nintendo’s new games system. 

For more information about this episode you can visit the LGR blog at where you can also find our contact details and links to additional content.
