Did you guys watch any debut anime from 2020? If so which ones stood out for you?

Wesley LeBlanc

@LeBlancWes

If you could have one Nintendo game release this year — could be one we know about, a dream game, a remake, anything — what would it be?

Hard mode: for that game to release, BOTW2 must never release. Would you still want your pick to come out?

I recently started using my *NEW* 3DS again after years of it being in a drawer and I’m just astounded how well designed the UI was for it. 

Q: Do you think Nintendo will FINALLY add some kind of personality (themes or ANYTHING) to the Switch in 2021?

Additionally, what would you want?

Yeah, I got a question: how much cooked spaghetti do you think it would take to fill the hole I dug in my backyard?

How do they fit an entire jet inside of those marshmallows they sell at the store?
