Episode 48: Switch pre-launch ad campaign impressions and Final Fantasy XV SPOILERCAST

We're just two weeks out from the launch of the Nintendo Switch and we've got lots to talk about!

Antony is joined by his friend (and internet husband) Paul Steven Brown from the Cultural Wormhole and X-Nation podcasts (www.culturalwormhole.com) to talk about all the Switch pre-release stuff, including leaks and Nintendo's odd embargo activities.

But the meat of the episode is Paul and Antony jumping right into a spoilercast discussion of Final Fantasy XV (with Paul literally just being 30 minutes clear of completing it).  What did they guys like?  What did they not like?  Would they play a Final Fantasy XV-2 and what would they want it to be?

Join us for fun and feedback over at www.facebook.com/nintylovefest or on Twitter @NintyLovefest.  If you like us, rate and review us wherever you get your podcasts and tell your friends about us too!

We're just two weeks out, people!  Happy Switchmas!
