Um, there actually is a proper account system now. All your purchases are tied to your Nintendo Account and can be accessed on any system. Not at the same time, but the days of games being tied to hardware are long gone.

@JaxonH Yep, I know, but does it still not require a phone call to Nintendo?

Pretty sure it's all handled by an on-console license system.

No, I mean, if you lose your Switch, don't you still need to contact Nintendo? If not, then nice. If so, then my point stands.

@Operative2-0

If you lose any system you'll likely need to call the console manufacturer. Otherwise somebody's going to be accessing your account.

Hm, I believe you can just deactivate other consoles via a new PS4, I believe you can even do it online and deactivate them through your account. Not sure about Xbox. Plus, that's if its stolen, not broken. So my point still stands. No digital games for me, then.

@Operative2-0 @JaxonH

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the last update add the ability to just sign in with a Nintendo account on any system and have it transfer your account like that? I think you actually talked about that a while ago, Jax?

But even then, if the support in NA is anything like the dude I got in the support chat today it's a matter of, like, 5 minutes to unlink your account from lost/broken/stolen (sigh) Hardware and it doesn't actually cost anything.

@Tsurii

No. It's always been like that. But you need to deactivate your primary system first before you can activate another. Which for 99% of scenarios is perfectly doable from the system. In theory it is possible to have your system lost or stolen, and in that situation you would need to contact Nintendo but honestly, given the statistical likelihood of that happening and the fact that even if it did happen a 10 minute phone call is all it would take to rectify the situation (which is likely no more time than googling how to deactivate a console online and searching forums and getting confused, which you can see is pretty commonplace if you search PS4 online deactivation), I don't really see it as an issue... But that's just me.

I wonder, with all this QOL updates, if they'll go back on what they said during the Wii U and offer a way to stream content

@Ralizah Cheers, SMT may be the first
turn based RPG where I actually enjoy the combat instead of trying to avoid it then.

Ya, VVVVVV is a classic.

Now, back to Fire Emblem Warriors or should I progress a little farther in Nights of Azure 2... I thought I'd just toss the game in and check it out real quick, and I ended up playing for like 2-3 hours today before I finally forced myself to pack it up to make time for FE Warriors.. Guess that should tell me the game is pretty good. And it is, too, because it started to open up a whole lot right before I paused it. It really, really feels like a Tales game. Except way more addictive.

The irony of this whole Switch anniversary, is that my birthday was the 20th yet I still do not have a Switch. Can I get a R.I.P. in the chat?

@JaxonH Will you stop selling that game on here, I have enough to buy without adding yet another game. 😛

@Spoony_Tech

Which one... Fire Emblem Warriors, or Nights of Azure 2?

You don't have to add another game... yet. Start with Fire Emblem and get NoA2 later 😃 See, I can be reasonable

@JaxonH I actually don't want Fire Emblem, it's the other game you keep praising I need to look into.
