    I hope this doesn't have anything to do with the Hacker Bounty program.
    Looks fishy.

    Naw, I like the Switch, at least in terms of hardware. I just wish more games would come out on it so I could enjoy it more.

    Now everyone will finally be able to play balloon fight and Dr Mario against others online! Forget arms or Splatoon for esports, Dr. Mario is gonna be the new esports hit!

    Super Mario Bros 3 with online play? I can see Dr. Mario with its multiplayer. I was going to say Street Fighter 2 but oh...there's that new version for Switch.
