...please lie to me.

Greg, Jon, and James return to the task of producing "The World's Most On-Topic Nintendo Podcast." This week James samples the offerings at Three Houses Buffet of Eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes.

"Professor, please desist from sniffing the neck of your introverted students."

Jon taking a look at the infinite expanse of procedurally generated No Man's Sky, now available on Xbox One X, The World's Most Powerful Video Game Console™. He's into the entire concept of exploring and seeing the unlimited possibilities of math. Greg closes out New Business with a brief wrap-up on Blazing Chrome before turning to Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and XMultiply. Captain Toad is temporarily free with Nintendo Switch Online in Japan, where Greg definitely is, and XMultiply is an Arcade Archives remaster of a previously "lost" Saturn/PSX Irem shooter.

After the break we take leaf through our portfolio of Listener Mail. This week we: put out the call for Switch fighting games, examine the sales potential of Switch Lite, analyze box art (see image below), analyze more box art, and change a localization decision. You can send us an email by depositing it here.

Last call for RetroActive! Next week we'll be doing our RetroActive on Crimson Shroud. You can email us your thoughts, or post them in the forums.

How much do we have to pay for an entire episode in gungan speak?

Mesa thinking we hit the ad-free stretch goal on the Patreon.

It takes a remarkable amount of thought to do this in real time.

I think you forgot to mention that all these conversations and activities are optional.  You choose to talk to everyone and do the activities. You can skip all that and go to actual fights. So yeah. Optional.

Also, doesn’t the save file tell you your time played?
