Skip to 13:45 to skip the Pokemon talk, but we promise you won't regret listening to the first few minutes. Or maybe you will, for entirely different reasons. 

Half the year is gone, so the NVC cast chats about their favorite games so far, and what games yet to be released could possibly dethrone them.

However, we spliced in a segment from the future(tm) to make good on our transgressions. Plus, with so many video games being turned into movies and TV shows, the crew discusses which movie or show they'd want to see as a video game for this week's Question Block question.

We’ll also be taking look at recent news – with a message from the FUTURE! – talking about some games we’ve been playing recently, and taking YOUR questions during Question Block!

This week we got two fairly substantial updates for both the Nintendo Switch system itself, and for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

IGN's Top 25 Nintendo Switch Games was updated this week as well, and we discuss how we made our decisions, revealing the games we booted to make room for the games we added. Lastly, we answer a doozy of a Question Block question: If you could play no video games except five current Nintendo Switch games for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Find out on this week's episode of Nintendo Voice Chat!
