Nintendo Switch Online needs more than just a good classic game hub

Added: 23.09.2018 1:17 | 4 views | 0 comments

Nintendo Switch Online is underwhelming in most ways. People now have to pay to play games online, like Splatoon 2, when they were able to do so for free before. The lack of messaging, grouping, or voice chat functions inside the actual system (instead relying on a clunky smartphone app for these essential features) is baffling. Backup saves are nice, but we should have had those for free from the beginning. Xbox Live and PlayStation Network give us those things, and theyve been around for years. Sure, they cost more ($60 a year compared to Switchs $20 a year), but its worth it for things like, you know, in-system chat. But at least Nintendo Switch Onlines $20 a year price tag gives you access to a nice hub for NES games. But even this needs improvements.
