Our apologies for the audio this week! KC had to record in the "Chamber of Eternal Echoes" and his track paid the price. But it's still a great show, with JV reviewing the first 3D Kirby game, and an in-depth discussion on the value of achievement systems in games.

All that, and the week's Nintendo Switch News Roundup!
