TheAwesomeMichael Switch -es It Up

Episode 60: The Switch-filled sixtieth episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! (Before we get into our show, Miz Sylver is hosting the gamer version of Family Feud at PAX South, be one of the "Survey Says" contributors by filling out this survey.) Tonight we have a special guest, The Awesome Michael! He is an amazing streamer who specialized in Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS! He's currently in training for this season's Mario Kart competitions. He's the defending Mario Kart 7 champion for all the US PAX's, so he will be attending Pax South (San Antonio, TX, Jan 27-29, 2017) where he will hang out with Miz Sylver and Pax East (Boston, MA, Mar 10-12, 2017) where he will be hanging out with both Miz Sylver and The Wolf Doctor if you want to catch up with him in person! He gives us the lowdown on his Twitch community and streaming set-up (including his Katsukity capture setup!) and his favorite color of Yoshi! Find him online!

The Awesome Michael and The Wolf Doctor also discuss the newest Switch reveal! Both Michael and Miz Sylver pre-ordered the grey package, and they both pre-ordered the Breath of the Wild! We discuss many different aspects of the Nintendo Switch, from the hardware, to the controllers, to the games, the price, the online service! It works out to, "We'll see!" doesn't it? The ideas are great, and the price is fair, but until you play those games and see how well the motion controllers work, you don't know! (Though we all agree that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is pretty much a no fail beauty!) The Nintendo Switch and Play Preview Events are happening in the weeks leading up to launch; the New York event is happening tomorrow, January 15th, at 10 a.m. ET, in a secret location on the second floor of 849 Avenue of the Americas in NYC. Toronto is on January 29th, and more cities are upcoming...

An important Switch question for you all:
