It's Nintendo week! Let's discuss that big Smash Bros. news! Plus, the Switch OLED, Metroid Dread (including the Special Edition), and the new Samus and E.M.M.I. Amiibo have dropped! What was our trip into the wild (and onto internet web shops) like as we searched far and wide for those hard to find items?! 

Also... let's talk about Nintendo’s free holographic Metroid rewards posters and the current state of Nintendo’s physical rewards program (and online merch store!). 

All of that and more in this week's short and sweet episode of... The Boss Room. Enjoy!

Will the Mario Golf update finally make the game feel complete? And, what's the point of the Dyling Light 2 “cloud” version?

Of course, we have to dish out some Metroid Dread info, too!

Plus, some huge news! Nintendo’s new online expansion brings N64 and Genesis games to the Switch. Which ones are we most excited for and why - and how much do we expect to pay? Oh, and how about those controllers?!

The Castlevania GBA Collection is perfect for the Switch Lite. We explain why!
