The Nintendo Switch will be released on Friday, and we get some controversial last minute details leading up to the launch of the system. Will the lack of Virtual Console at launch be a critical failure for the system? Or are those that have pre-ordered the system become comfortable with their "early adopter" status? We discuss live with the listeners tonight, and cover the rest of the week's news including some impressive sales figures for the Playstation VR!

We start off this weeks episode with a little positivity, talking about video game moments that we love. What were the moments that made our hosts know they were a gamer? We also take input from our live chatroom at VOGNetwork. Then we get into the news about a "leaked" Nintendo Switch, but LOKI thinks there is something about the story that just doesn't add up. Will Nintendo ever come out and answer some of our questions about the switch with just days to go until launch?
