In a world without Nintendo Direct announcements, there is only suffering. The team discusses Nintendo's marketing strategy, buyer demographics, and their immense sales pace with the Switch as compared to other consoles. The team also take a good bit of time to discuss the new Vive Pro, and what may need to change in VR game design philosophy to move it beyond gimmick territory.
