This week we review the September Nintendo Direct. We talk about some of the fun titles that are coming, as well as our thoughts on them. We also ponder whether we’re in the best timeline or not, because 3 Bethesda games on a Nintendo console is bonkers. So much to say in this longer episode of the Virtual Boys Podcast!

Pre-orders for the SNES Classic really made us mad. So, we figured we’d talk about how they went down and more.

So here’s what we had to say about the Classic SNES pre-order chaos!
All three of us convene this week to discuss the problem with the Metroid amiibo, but first, we talk about some pressing matters, like our Ironcast audio review!
