With a lot of time this year left open and ready to be filled with lots of big video game releases, Nintendo brought some big announcements to the table along with some updates on existing games that will surely help drive the Switch to another successful year in 2018. Tune in to hear all about the big news including  Super Smash Bros. Switch, Splatoon 2, Mario Tennis Aces, Dark Souls getting its own amiibo, more Switch ports and even some 3DS announcements thrown in for good measure!

A typical gaymer, I enjoy most RPG's, Platformers, and Fighting games. I started gaming early with Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat and Alex the Kidd on my Sega Mega Drive. This started a "healthy" obsession that has spanned 5 generations of consoles, and I won't be stopping anytime soon.
