E3 is opening their doors to the consumers for the first time ever, but is it really something that people would want to go to? The Oculus and Zenimax lawsuit has finished its first round in court, and Zenimax is walking away with a good chunk of cash...But they're not done yet. Then we take calls about E3, Xbox One, and Forza Horizon 3.

The Nintendo Switch has now been out a week and there's already more games for it - and I was able to get a Pro Controller. I did accidentally break my kickstand, but was able to pop it back in before my stream of Fast RMX. I checked out VOEZ, the mobile rhythm game that only works on the Switch touchscreen. Sony released the 4.5 update and allows for external hard drives! Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-like service of downloadable games. Oculus has dropped the price of the Rift and Touch, is it time for you to get it? Then we take calls about PSVR getting 3D, Danganronpa Class Trial VR and the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo Switch is now out! Unless you ordered on Amazon, then you might have gotten screwed. I try to tell a sob story about missing out on a Pro Controller, but then again, I at least have a console... We talk about the hardware of the Switch and how the cartridges smell bad. I totally didn't play much of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. 1-2 Switch has many wonderful audiogames and helps open up gaming to a specific audience. Snipperclips and Fast RMX are also good $20 games. Then we take calls about accessibility in games, and then more about Zelda and the Switch.
We begin by talking about a comment about security with online gaming systems, the Nintendo Switch, and LEGO Dimensions. The PAL SNES games feared stolen were found by the USPS! ZeniMax has filed an injunction against Oculus that would halt the sale of all hardware and software (including games using the Oculus drivers) that they claim violates their copyrights. Sony can't keep the PlayStation VR in stock, as it has sold almost a million units. We then take calls about how great PSVR is and that the VR revolution might be almost here, and that the Nintendo Switch is also almost here.
E3 totally did not sell out in 10 minutes...more like a few days. Surprising. The Humble Freedom Bundle was a thing that was glorious. A NeoGAF user reported getting a Nintendo Switch early, posted some videos of the UI, then Nintendo claimed it was stolen and he sent it back. (He also did some shady stuff on Reddit before posting the video, allegedly...) A bunch of PAL SNES games were lost in transit being shipped from Europe to a ROM dumper in the US. (Spoiler alert: there was actually a happy ending to this story, to be told on the next episode.) Nobody called, so I talked about my classic MS-DOS gaming rig with a Roland MT-32 and Gravis Ultrasound again.
