0910Recently, Google unveiled its major foray into the gaming industry with Google Stadia, a cloud-based streaming service that would allow gamers to play their favorites from a Google Chrome browser, smartphone, Chromecast, or other internet-enabled devices. Stadia promises a lot of really neat features in theory, so much so that some have called it the future of gaming. Not all of us at Gamnesia quite buy into the idea, however, so join Jeff, Humulos, and Steven as they breakdown the Stadia reveal and discuss the merits of such a platform.

Welcome to another episode of Switched On! March 3rd marked the second anniversary of Nintendo Switch's release, and Nintendo will soon be closing the books on its second complete fiscal year. Now that the dust has settled from the Pokémon Sword and Shield reveal and Reggie Fils-Aime's retirement announcement, we decided to take a little time to reflect the first two years of Nintendo Switch and speculate about the future. Join Ben, Alex, and first-time guest Humulos for a special anniversary episode of Switched On!

The long-rumored Pokémon Direct arrived last week, and as expected it brought the reveal of the eighth generation of Pokémon games. Pokémon Sword and Shield take players to the new Galar region (inspired by Great Britain) where they'll be choosing between three new starters, Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. What can we expect from the next evolution of the Pokémon franchise? Join Ben, Elijah, and Jeff as they break it all down on the latest episode of Switched On!

There's been a ton of exciting Nintendo news and rumors lately, and it could mean big things for the future of Nintendo. With Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime retiring, the age of Bowser is about to begin. Meanwhile, rumors suggest Nintendo and Microsoft are working together on a deal that would bring Xbox Live and Game Pass to Switch along with cloud streaming technology! Join Ben, Will, and Jeff as we discuss all of this and more on the latest episode of Switched On!

It finally happened! After weeks of endless rumors, Nintendo finally aired a new Nintendo Direct last Wednesday, and it was well worth the wait! With announcements like Super Mario Maker 2, a remake of Link's Awakening, Deltarune on Switch, and more, there's plenty to get excited about. Join Ben, Mark, and Will as they break it all down on the latest episode of Switched On!

Happy (belated) New Year! A lot has gone on in 2018, including some huge game releases and major life milestones. 2019 won't be any different either, with some highly anticipated titles already having come out and many more to come. Join Steven, Ben, and Will on this episode of Gamnesia After Dark as we discuss both our highlights from last year and what we're looking forward to this coming year!

Nintendo originally launched New Super Mario Bros. U on Wii U (just in case the name didn't give it away), but that platform's lack of success compelled Nintendo to give the platformer new life on Switch. The Deluxe version of the game comes with all DLC, some graphical upgrades, and some new playable characters and items. You can pick up the new and improved version tomorrow, and in the meantime, Nintendo has just released a new trailer to showcase its fun gameplay and newly-acquired portability on Switch.

Happy holidays, everyone! In celebration of the holiday season, we have a very special episode of Switched On! this week. We've been regularly rotating guests on the podcast to introduce you to a variety of Gamnesia staff members, but for this episode, we decided it would be fun to bring back some familiar voices. Longtime listeners know that before Switched On! we had a podcast called Nintendo Week for a few years, and we're excited to announce that this episode is a Nintendo Week reunion! Join the old crew of Ben Lamoreux, Colin McIsaac, and Alex Plant as we break down all of the latest exciting Nintendo news and share our thoughts on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

Pokémon has evolved yet again. Game Freak's beloved monster-catching franchise just took on a new form with the launch of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee. These twin games are essentially remakes of Pokémon Yellow, but with significant gameplay changes inspired by Pokémon GO. So how does the finished product hold up? Join Ben, Elijah, and Tessie as they break down the good and the bad on the latest episode of Switched On!

It's the holiday season, so what better time to take a moment and reflect on some of our fondest memories? Whether holiday or gaming related, or simply just something that happened to you randomly, these memories are near and dear to us all. We here at Gamnesia have our own memories as well, and thus we would like to invite you to join Steven, Mark, and Tessie as they recount some of their favorites as they relate to video games.
