This week we invite guest Zack Rezak to help us talk about the recent Jim Sterling controversy and review scores in general. Before we get to any of that we set aside some time to discuss several Nintendo Switch releases. First is a review of  1-2-Switch, a multiplayer social experience that, wait for it … doesn’t rely on players looking at their television sets. Next is Super Bomberman R, the long-awaited return of a classic grid-based game that allows for up to eight players to battle against one another, either online or in local multiplayer. After which we discuss Snipperclips, a cooperative puzzle game that makes use of a snipping mechanic to allow players to cooperate and solve shape-based puzzles. And finally, Blaster Master Zero, a remake of a retro gaming classic that stars a boy and his frog. All this and more.

‘The Elder Scrolls Online’: There’s No Place Like… Anywhere Else
