I swear this live stream isn’t sponsored by 7-Eleven and Nintendo! In advance of Link’s Awakening‘s release, we take a quick stop in Hyrule for A Link to the Past! As I fumble my way through Hyrule as “Jettt”, we discuss our picks for most overrated Zelda game, seeing Ellen Page IRL @ the Toronto International Film Festival, using save states as a crutch, and what games we’re hoping Santa leaves under our Christmas tree this year!
I liked Super Mario Maker a lot. I’m not one who enjoys making stuff in games, but I did have a great time during the brief stretch where I was into it. However, it fell out of my rotation pretty quickly when my interest in making levels waned and it felt like all of the user-created levels I encountered were awful. Because of this, Super Mario Maker 2 was not on my radar at all.
Then the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct happened. What I saw knocked my socks off! While I expected Nintendo to make improvements over the original, the sheer volume of improvements on display were staggering.
Introduced at the end of the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct, Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers give Nintendo Switch Online subscribers the ability to save on select games. Sold as a pair for $99.99, you can redeem them for two $60 games and save $20. You can buy multiple sets of vouchers at a time and vouchers are good for a year after purchase. However, it looks like vouchers will only be sold until July 31st.
Tetris 99 has been one of 2019’s biggest surprises. Putting a battle royale spin on a timeless classic has grown to become Nintendo Switch Online’s killer app. Even with only one mode during the first few months of the game’s existence, I’ve poured dozens of hours into the game and had no plans of stopping.
But for players looking to shake things up, the Big Block DLC is available for purchase. For $9.99 USD, you get access to two new offline modes. Are these new additions enough to pry you away from the online multiplayer action?
Move over, Fortnite! Tetris 99 is the new battle royale king! I get REALLY into Tetris 99, including multiple wins and one big meltdown! We also talk about Valentine’s Day and the struggles that come with dating!

The battle royale sub-genre of games has a new competitor in town. Going beyond the bounds of the shooter, The Tetris Company and Nintendo surprised the world with Tetris 99. Exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, 99 players enter one room and battle in block-dropping warfare until only one remains. Tetris in its base form is one of the greatest games of all-time, but how does it translate to the modern battle royale format?
After much delay, Nintendo has mostly pulled the lid off of its paid online service. Let’s break down the good and the bad of what you could be buying into this September!
