This episode was recorded back in February, and I just now got around to editing. Things have been a tad busy lately, so I offer my sincere apologies! Hopefully you'll find the episode worth the wait.
A portion of a GamesIndustry interview with GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs and CFO Mark Gifford...
GI: Speaking of Nintendo, you seem to have high expectations for Nintendo Switch going forwards, which is notable considering the rather poor performance of Wii U. Why do you have such confidence?
Gibbs: The appetite that we have seen for the Switch console has, I think, been driven around the usability and exactly what the console is. You only have to play Zelda on-the-move - as you will have done - and you get it in a nanosecond. For me, it is worth the money just to get that [Zelda] experience in a large-screen mobile version. The concept is very strong and obviously having a launch game with a Metacritic of 97 is wholly helpful. I think the fact that we know what games are coming - we know we have Mario Kart, and then Splatoon 2 and then Super Mario Odyssey - is a good reason why people want to buy the console.
I haven't picked this up yet, and impressions show me it's not all that great, but I usually like golf games no matter what. Can I really justify the purchase of this game for a single mode?!
