@Shiryu Wow the music is nice, and it looks pretty fluid. I’ll definitely keep it on my list now. Thanks!

@Magician You had me excited with that PSO2 video. Didnt read into the context and presumed it had been released in the West. Googled the hell out of it and only found disappointment. Thank goodness it's Friday, I guess.

@Magician Saying Mario Kart shouldn't have a new game on Switch because MK8 was ported to the Switch is like saying Skyward Sword shouldn't have been on the Wii since Twilight Princess was ported to the Wii. (Edit: Day-old topic so sorry for the late mention, my activity feed is cluttered)

You're wrong until I say otherwise.

@NintendoByNature The year of Nintendo truly begins next month - when Super Mario Maker 2 launches next month, expect a skyrocket of interest in Nintendo. We literally have a plethora of first party titles releasing for the Switch this year. Honestly, I'm personally not sure I'll be able to get them all within 2019! Haha!
The only certain buys for me are Link's Awakening and Luigi's Mansion 3, though it's very likely I won't wait long to get SMM2, Animal Crossing, and Pokemon Sword/Shield (Specifically Sword).

You're wrong until I say otherwise.

Given the NSO situation, I wonder whether games like Team Sonic Racing and Crash Team Racing would be inactive for online multiplayer.

Why would they? It should cost basically zero for them to include multiplayer.

@Therad Not what I'm talking about, I'm talking about not being able to find matches (i.e. empty lobbies) in the Switch version because of the NSO requirement.

@Grumblevolcano Well the multiplayer on other consoles costs money too, yeah? I don’t see why it would be much different than Smash or MK8, anyway.

Weird...anyone remember my repeatedly corrupt data with my Smash install? But LGPikachu/Eevee was fine as were other digital games (DKCTF, NSMBU, etc.)

Well I haven't used Switch much in the past few months, having been playing various PS/XB games instead. I just popped physical copies of Ys VIII into both switches in the house yesterday......both machines needed a system update, so I let that go ahead. Both systems downloaded the patch for YS. Then BOTH systems said the install was corrupt and needed to scan for corruption and redownload. After re-download both systems were OK. It's not possible both systems developed a bad SD card randomly at the same time coincidentally while playing Smash, so all I can think of is whatever went wrong with smash or the system update at the time may have messed up the entire file system permanently..... UGH! Between, this and the X1 HDD randomly spinning up every 60 seconds, I swear I'm going to dust off the SNES and never look up again

@Grumblevolcano Considering Activision (unlike Nintendo and some other third parties) puts their games frequently on sale (Diablo 3 had a sale just a month after it was released), I think there'll be plenty of new players joining in online.

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

Yeah, I knew what you meant. But it is basically free for them to add it anyway, regardless if there are enough subscribers.

While that is true, paid online is a bad idea regardless of platform. It is bad for consumers and bad for developers. The only one it is good for is the platform holder.
Or rather, in the short term it is good for the platform holder. But it is bad for their own titles as well, such as Splatoon.

@WebHead Exactly. Love it or leave it, the only way to play online in 90% of console games is through a paywall. Developers know this too, so it’s not like they’re at a weak point. Consumers en mass accepted paywall multiplayer long ago.

@AlohaPizzaJack While that is the case for Xbox and Playstation, judging by online activity outside the big 3 (MK8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Smash Ultimate) since NSO went live that's not the case for Switch yet. Whether Mario Maker 2 changes that though is a different situation (special edition having 12 months NSO suggests Mario Maker 2 will be like Splatoon 2 in which you can't do much without NSO).
