News Wave WIR – Gamecube Emulation On Switch, Nintendo Online, Microsoft EA and Your Comments


Speed runners managed to import a Shield TV from China that allows them to play through Zelda Twilight Princess on the Nvidia system. After checking the game files they realized the system is using an emulator to play Gamecube and Wii games on the Tegra powered system. This has led several people to ask when the emulator will appear on the Switch. Nintendo announced the paid online will launch on the Switch in September with more information coming later. A rumor from reliable sources over on Polygon cited a possible big acquisition coming from Microsoft in the coming weeks with both EA and Valve named in the article.

Thanks for watching!


  1. Where did the time stamp guy go? I don't want to watch the entire video, I want to watch maybe 1 minute of what I'm interested in. I hate watching the entire thing to find that 1 minute.

  2. I always like your weekends in review but honestly the part about Apple and Google is too much of a speculation. Particularly why mentioning those two and not others? Isn't it arbitrary? If you're trying to step into the "industry influencers" space why instead you try to come up with some potentially better ways to make a new console to address real people needs? To me that would provide much better topics to talk about. Regardless, keep up the good work 🙂

  3. Right joystick. Press the R button then push up on the right stick for sunshine. How many racers would be released honestly?

  4. EVERYONE!!!!! I think it is a good idea for you to read what I have to say here before you just scroll down and skip this comment!!!!!!!

    I just want to tell everyone that this "Nintendo Labo" thing may not be good for you. There is some debate going around that products, such as wireless and Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, are bad for you, and that they can give you severe brain diseases that you probably do NOT want to have. It looks like the joy-cons (which I think use Bluetooth by the way) can be strapped to different places of your body in these Nintendo Labo configurations, and they may even strap to your head also. I don't want anyone to get severe brain diseases, such as brain cancer even, so I want to tell you all that this may be the same thing as wireless and Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, and that they MAY cause problems to your body. I am not saying that they WILL cause problems to your body, I am just saying that they MAY cause problems to your body. Everyone, I think it is better to be safe than sorry, so I think that you should all just keep an eye out for this, just in case it is bad for you. I hope that you all may live happy and healthy lives, so that is why I am telling you this.

  5. I honestly have no idea what's been going on in the minds of Nintendo regarding their lack of a real online service. When Microsoft launched Xbox Live, Sony made sure they had their own online service up and running within a couple of years. Sure, it took Sony some time to catch up to Microsoft in terms of features and user-friendliness but they pretty much did eventually.

    Nintendo should have launched a robust online service all the way back on the Wii, in fact I was expecting it since they had already started experimenting with online gaming on the original DS. Then that didn't happen, and it didn't happen on the 3DS, and it didn't even happen on the Wii U.

    If Nintendo Online on the Switch turns out to be anything like Xbox Live or PSN then that's good and all, but it's launching more than a decade later than it should have.

  6. I tried playing Sunshine on emulation before, while it is "playable" with the keyboard alone, I had to mess around with settings a LOT as there is a significant difference between a 50% push down and a 100% push down on the F.L.U.D.D. trigger. For the case of that game and a "port" or emulation on the switch, I think Nintendo would have to map those functions as two different buttons, possibly R doing one and ZR doing the other.

  7. Not sure if this is good or not so take it at face value but I could see EA accepting being purchased by Microsoft just as a repair of public image. It's kinda like throwing a "Under New Management" sign on the front of a store.

  8. I still thing it sucks that there is no official way to play Gamecube games on the Wii U. It's hardware compatible and no emulation is required, but they didn't even offer the games for download for the Virtual Console. I think that's sad. It's just one way they screwed up with the Wii U.

  9. Nintendo consoles get hacked from QR codes and web browsers. I'm pretty sure that running user created software on the device is going to be a big security hole.
