The Cartridge Family: 005 - Doom and Wolfenstein II on Nintendo Switch

The boys decide whether it's time to sell the family Xbox now that their favorite games, old and new, are headed to their favorite convergence device.


Another week, another show! We’re so pleased to welcome back Chris Buffa into the Cartridge fold. At the risk of speaking for everyone else, we really missed him. This week, we pry ourselves away from Destiny 2 and do our best to discuss literally anything else — Vin and I are pretty smitten with the thing.

On this week’s show we go over the latest game releases, talk a bit about the Nintendo Direct that aired a few days ago and the headlines it brought with it, and finally, because I can’t help myself, we touch ever so slightly on Destiny 2’s post-game content.

This week’s discussion topics include the announcement that Bethesda’s Doom and upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are headed to the Nintendo Switch. Buffa is especially smitten with the topic considering he’s been eyeing Wolfenstein II since he got his hands on it at an event a few months back. We then briefly discuss Metroid: Samus Returns and the concept of remaking (not remastering) games from scratch. We wrap up the show by talking about Microsoft’s Xbox Showcase which we had the pleasure of attending earlier this week. Thanks as always for listening!
