Episode 135: The Nintendo Switch’s Unpatchable Exploit

Posted on May 3, 2018

Welcome back! On this show we talk about the Nintendo Switch’s unpatchable exploit. Nothing bad has happened but the exploit is there that if someone wanted, could possible run malicious code. However, this also opens the Switch up to the modding community. Ars Technica has a great article outlining the whole thing. Before all that we talk about the games we’re playing and a bit of gaming news.
