TOPIC: NINTENDO SWITCH

Nintendo hit a home run with the Wii and then barely got to first base with the Wii U. They’ve proven they’re not afraid to take risks and their latest console, the Switch, is further proof of that. Designed as both a home console AND a portable console, have they pushed the concept of what console gaming is further yet again or is it back to the drawing board?
