Then they move on to the constant Nintendo 4K Switch rumors, Twitch’s hate speech protection, and pay for visibly. Finishing it off with the Tokyo Game Show, Grand Theft Auto 3 trilogy news, 10 years of Nintendo Direct, and the skyrocketing PC game pricing.

Get those snacks and drinks ready, this is a long one!
