Robert’s Pick: While I’m not crazy about competitive multiplayer games and am unlikely to wire up my Switch for chat, I am excited for the release of Splatoon 2. On  original was one of those experiences where even if I was on the lower end of the leaderboards, I was still having fun- and felt like I was contributing to the team. And while most of my Switch play will be offline/on-the go, I’ll be picking up Splatoon 2 for the single-player experience and the occasional match with radio-silent allies.

  1. I’m wondering if Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star runs as well on the Switch as it did on PS4. Anyone know the framerate?

  2. I still need to pick up the Crash Bandicoot Trilogy. I’m really behind on new games.

  3. I like Shodown, but I think I’ll wait for one of the sequels. SamSho 2 and 3 are some of the best.

  4. I’m downloading Splatoon 2 now.

  5. I’ll be getting Pyre this week. Can’t wait for Tuesday.

  6. PWND looks cool. But I’ll wait to see if it catches on first.
