Listened to this one out of order, but I wanted to hear your thoughts on Smash.

To me, I think the love for Smash comes from the fact it's the most non-fighting-game fighting-game out there. The amount of content getting put into this game is insane, hardcore fans of the series have got to be in heaven. And I have yet to hear one word about DLC, it's all part of the original price of the game. Just bananas.

I'm glad Smash fans are getting their fan service this Christmas, this game is going to sell like crazy, 10+ million easy in the first year.

When you were talking about the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer and describing the game, I actually thought to myself, oh cool that sounds like Breath of the Wild - especially your description of how quests are unlocked by randomly walking up to people in the world versus the Assassin's Creed style climb up a tower and get everything handed to you on a silver platter. I played BotW in the same way that you are excited to play RDR2, and loved it, so I hope you enjoy that game as much as it seems like you will.

Yeah the fact that it's not exactly a traditional fighter is appealing to me. I love seeing the fan service, and that's the primary reason I go to this title. I wouldn't be surprised if it sold a ton of switches, with pokemon let's go holding its own as well.

I really hope Red Dead 2 lives up to the amount of excitement and hype I feel for the title. I can't wait to get my hands on it, and get lost in that world, and man it's a beautiful world.
