I've mostly been staying out of this thread other than some occasional monitoring since my opinions on this whole thing can be found elsewhere, but I consider this sentence a low, uneducated, and unnecessary blow.

So I also frequent a Jeep forum, and yea... it's not half as bad as this place. And this place isn't half as bad as most.

... I'm sorry. What was the question again? Apparently we've devolved into the usual attacks against personality/IQ/etc. of total strangers.

at the same time I'd love to play Super Mario RPG, Super Metroid, and many other SNES games again.

My fear is that these games are lost in limbo. Nintendo is obviously trying something new here and never did they promise a classic game collection. They want to change the old classics and add multiplayer on top. That just won't work with SMRPG or Super Metroid. Also, they have zero rights to change the content of games developed by then-Squaresoft (now Square-Enix, who also can't change the content due to limited rights by Nintendo).
What can Nintendo do to "improve the experience" with titles like FF6 or Chrono Trigger? Absolutely nothing.

Gameplay matters.

@Switchcraft You do realize that Square-Enix has tweaked and improved games like Final Fantasy 6, right? They then released the updated games on non-nintendo consoles. I have a copy of FF6 for playstation. Things like added CGI cut scenes, an extra dungeon, improved UI, improved translations...

@FaeKnight Yes, I know. Square has a reputation for throwing out badly done and overpriced ports of old classics. This will not be to Nintendo's satisfaction.

FaeKnight

I find most of the Final Fantasy ports on PS1 to be well done. The CGI cut scenes I can do without. But the quality of life improvements such as fixed translations is a good thing. Okay, the 3d remakes of NES games they like doing range from bland to bad, that I'll agree with. But their remasters of the original games tend to be quality work.

@ReaderRagfish I think the timing is more to do with gaming conventions give a good opportunity to check out indie games. All the Nindies events so far have been around the time of a gaming convention.

Hi, how about transforming/renaming this thread into the "Official Nintendo Switch Online Subscription" thread? My guess is that there will soon be a deluge of questions threads about the sub and it would be good to have the discussions more confined.

@Therad Have been thinking about trying to make one of these threads official, but I don't tend to actively follow them to determine which one would be most appropriate. Happy to take your nomination though, thanks. I'll make it happen.

Well, I think I have found a great reason for why I wont be subscribing to Nintendo Online even though I had the funds set aside to do so. Apparently my playing Mario Kart online this month has gotten me close to hitting my data usage limit for my ISP. I hadn't even known I have a data limit. It's never come up before.

Playing MMOs for 14 hours a day and streaming Netflix couldn't accomplish this. Playing online games on X-Box couldn't pull it off. But online races in Mario Kart 8 did... Wow?

Have you setup port forwarding and/or dmz in your router? Remove those rules and mk will draw less.

Wouldn't doing that also mean it's easier for others to steal internet?

I believe all pf/dmz does is put your switch outside the internal router firewall. I’m sure someone could tell it better.

What I’ve done is also hide my SSID from broadcasting, and use the security (WEP I think)

EDIT: my autocorrect went nuts and lagged out, so it originally said it was Mubarak’s SSID was hidden. I don’t think his was...

Very sure. After all, only Splatoon 2 is supported by the Nintendo Online app so far, and unlike my brother I don't get excessively upset about them. I just get back to the race

All I can think of is I kept being picked as the host, which was eating up data like nobody's business.

No, it is the other way around. If Nintendo have any security issues with the switch, hackers can use it as an attack vector to attack other things on your lan.

A true DMZ partion your net into 2 different networks, one secure and one unsecure. The problem is that most home routers, if any, does this.

Mk might draw up to twelve times as much bandwidth if you have port forwarding/DMZ on. This is because Nintendo use your switch as a game server, which is because they don't want to pay for that bandwidth.

Therad

FaeKnight

Yeah, no... If I almost hit the data limit from playing Mario Kart 8 online for a few hours six or seven times, increasing the bandwidth used by 12x isn't a very smart idea IMO. I'm still trying to get into my ISP's account management (why on earth does it send the password reset link to an email account that's only accessible once you've used the password reset link... instead of to the same email the monthly "your statement is available online" message goes to?!)

Anyway, once I can access the account, I can track exactly where and when all the 400 gb of data was used. I know where about 200 gb is from (downloading Switch games and reinstalling software on my desktop after a clean reinstall of Windows). I'm strongly suspecting the rest were from Mario Kart 8 though. Namely because the my normal usage of the internet doesn't risk me going over 400 gb of data even if I had to clean install windows twice for various reasons (such as a program borking Windows when it uninstalls)

Dang, make sure to keep us updated! I'd be interested to see what exactly happened. And your network is secured, yeah? With no guest network enabled?

I change the PSK every week because I'd had neighbors who would steal internet before. And I unplug the router if I'm not actually doing anything online to discourage things even further. It should be secure, but that's one reason I want to look into things. I wasn't even home for 2 weeks of the current billing period. So the many hours I spent online in Mario Kart races then wouldn't count against me. And I've only done maybe 6 hours total of Mario Kart online, tops. I mostly do single player or local 2 player split screen.
