Is Nintendo playing it safe with the Switch? It's probably the only safe bet in this entire episode to be fair. Hear how the PlayStation Vita has been doing the handheld thing with proper controllers for years now. How the guys risk their lives to enjoy IPA's every episode. Graphic warning labels that can't stop cancer. Horrible games for dirty platinums. A pop album that makes Shane and Joel squirm. All culminating at the end with an argument about respected bands that can't get no respect on ABOG.
