Feast your ears - it's only another bloody episode of the Gracklecast!

Here's the direct link to the cast on Soundcloud.

This is a big 'un, so I've included timestamps in the Gintendo post and on the Soundcloud file description.

Join me and Balla as we wax lyrical about what the Switch 2 might bring, talk about our most wanted features for the new machine and answer some questions from you bunch.

Enjoy!

I had a lot of fun putting this together. Perhaps too much given the length. Shifty Remastered Gracklecast music as well!

The new music is great and there's still some tracks I've not used that will turn up in future episodes in 2027. Laughing

I gave this a listen over a couple of journeys for work. It was very enjoyable; those two and a half hours went by quickly.

I thought my highlight was going to be Balladeer making an arse of his intro, but that being immediately followed up by JayMoyles momentarily forgetting his name…I thought this podcast was the gift which kept on giving.

There’s probably lots of conversation to dissect from that and there’s definitely a couple of listener questions that can be turned into forum threads in due course. That said, I’ll just highlight that the ‘Haggis MacHaggis’ patter is from Ren & Stimpy, it can’t be claimed as being mine.

Cheers for giving it a listen Cappa, appreciated!

I have no idea why I had a total brainfart and forgot my own name - I've done hundreds of podcasts over the years and I genuinely don't think that's ever happened. Laughing

Not gave this a listen yet but I will do eventually, though you forgetting your name reminds me of the time Mas nearly introduced himself as Chris Moyles. Laughing

Listening now, what you're saying about a budget SteamDeck basically what I was thinking about the Xbox handheld (rumours don't really mention a price, that it could be the other way and super expensive) as it would have loads of indies even in Game Plus and your AAA games such as Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree plus all Xbox Game Studio stuff.

And feel the Switch at the start was like WOW can play DOOM on the go, which a Series P would have, like the SteamDeck (other handheld PC's are available) has now captured some of that audience.

Yes I would buy a Switch 2 for the Nintendo games, just how many of the 139m possible Switch owners actually care about the Nintendo exclusives and more so taking Elden Ring and Silksong on the go.

I know I'd had a bit to drink by that point but I'm pretty sure we covered this?  I mean, I can re-sum up the reasons it won't fail regardless in three words: handheld, Japan, Pokémon. Some knock-on effect? Sure. I'm not expecting Switch 2 to reach the same heights sales-wise as Switch 1 in a vacuum let alone with effective competition, and I can't see Nintendo trying as hard on the indie front again sadly. But I think if anything we'll get more frequent and better Nintendo games, now that they've figured out what they're doing.

I don't think Switch 2 will fail by any means but could see a DS to 3DS drop off, as I feel one of the strong selling points of the Switch was playing console games on the go, which is now gone.

I haven't listened to this yet either because it's not in my regular podcast feed and so I only remember it exists while on the forum.

On the list of best-selling switch games, the first one that isn't a Nintedo game is Monster Hunter Rise at number 24, and that was an exclusive when it launched and was basically marketed like a Nintendo game.

This still might be the case though. I think there's a section of the audience who bought into that image of playing Mario Kart at home and also at a rooftop party, and they're probably satisfied for now. Just as there was a big population who bought a Wii, enjoyed Wii Sports and Wii Fit, but didn't feel any desire for the next thing, regardless of what it was. I was actually surprised when i checked just now how much the 3DS did fall off from the DS - it was only about 50% of DS' sales.

Yeah I could see a EXCLUSIVE MonHan being huge for Switch 2, or they get Wilds on it, could still it doing the best for reasons Balla gave of handheld, Japan etc who I doubt would care about a portable Xbox even if it's also playing Wilds and PS5 hasn't really taken off in Japan.

That's also the thing can see bunch as you say bought into playing Mario Kart on their Switch and aren't bothered about Mario Kart X or new tech. Or they moved onto other things, like DS to 3DS drop off in my opinion was due to rise of mobile (same here with Switch but rise of handheld PC systems though more the core than casual audince for that) which satisfy the Brain Training, Nintendogs audince etc.

I'm pretty sure PS5 portal was a big stab at Japan

I doubt there are many people who bought a Steamdeck without also owning a Switch. I don't think its something normies are even aware of.

Portal very successful as well from info we've had. And mine has kinda replaced my Switch, sure Peach could only play on Switch but stuff like Sea of Stars, Penny which I may have played on Switch, I'm now playing on Portal as they feel like handheld games.

Deck certainly one for the core gamer, and when I had mine was going to replace my Switch. Just I'm not in that ecosystem and hated the idea of buying £50+ games digital only, that went back to buying on cart for Switch or disc on another system.

Edit
Just seen the news about Gio being hired by Nintendo, though in video, same what I was saying having Elden Ring on Switch 2 would be cool, but it be a three old year game in 2025. That they hope he can get new games on Switch 2, as the gimmick of playing console games on the go is gone.

The PS Portal being successful is a huge indictment on modern society.
