Re: Nintendo Switch Online App to Bring Voice Chat and SplatNet 2 to Splatoon 2 Launch


I have never used voice chat in a video game and I have no interest in starting now. That said, this solution looks real wonky. Especially for when playing Switch as a handheld system. Voice chat needs to be built in to be a viable service/feature.

The online aspects being on the app makes a ton of sense to me and I'm looking forward to see how well it works with Splatoon 2 as well as other games. I like the idea of peeking into the game world on the go while you may not have Switch with you.

Re: Feature: Coming Up With The Perfect Recipe In Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop


I love the Cooking Mama series and still play every now and then. This new one looks fun since there is a big focus on displaying and selling your treats. Should be a lot of fun! It's games like Cooking Mama that I wish we'd see more of on 3DS and Nintendo systems in general. I miss the days when developers were trying all kinds of new types of games with the system. Really glad to see that Cooking Mama is one that has continued to grow and stay relevant. Go Mama!

Re: Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its Planned Changes?


I don't understand why those who want to have conversations with people don't just Direct Message them. Why let the rest of the community in on your private conversations? It's a bit funny people are complaining to much and the changes haven't been implemented yet. Maybe judgements should be held off until we've gotten the time to use and play with the update and really understand what the differences are.

Re: Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Platform?


I'll be honest. I don't care at all about AAA third party games appearing on Nintendo game systems. The one's I have played are just not my style. I love how Nintendo forges their own path, innovating interaction, game goals, and concepts while keeping things bright, cheerful and above all fun. No other designer does this to the quality and consistency of Nintendo.

I want NX to push the envelope and open new gaming possibilities, not just bump up CPU's and horsepower.

Nintendo has promised to show NX in 2016 but I suspect it won't be released until mid or end of year 2017. Dev kits aren't even out yet and the rumors are we're just one year from release. That's not happening. I'm curious and optimistic but with nothing really to go on at this point I'm not hyped.

Now back to playing Wii U and 3DS.

Re: Feature: A Day With The Biggest StreetPass Group in the US


It's awesome to see a feature on the San Diego StreetPass group! I attend the Los Angeles miitups. They just celebrated their fourth anniversary too. It's great to see other 3DS gamers regularly, catch up, play games and such. If you have a 3DS you should definitely look up your local StreetPass group.

Re: ​Flipnote Studio 3D Now Available To North American Club Nintendo Members


This morning I was able to log on to Club Nintendo and claim my free download. However, the site froze before it displayed the download code. Since then I haven't been able to log in. I sure hope I'm still able to download the game later.

Nintendo really needs to work on making their sites more accessible during high traffic times. It's highly frustrating. Especially when users miss out on things due to the site crashing.

Re: Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?


Labels are better than numbers for reviewing games. Number scores only cause flame wars over a game getting a 7.5 when it "really deserved" an 8.5. In that case, either score means the game is recommended and a worthy purchase. "Vital" "Recommended" and "Avoid" are much more helpful than meaningless numbers.
