As a teen I don’t have a job but I have Nintendo online, I like the virtual console idea but I can’t buy those games, I kinda like the idea of every month getting credits that you can use to purchase games

Nintendo can't stand the idea of doing something the proper way. N64, could have switched to disc software but nooo cartridges, so they a lot of their devs and Playstation became a thing. Gamecube could have used full discs but used super small discs for whatever reason. Wii launched forcing motion control in your face but it just wasnt as fun as playing with a controller and the graphics almost seem worse than GC titles. The wii u was so bad they had to fork out the switch way sooner than they should have had to and the switch looks alright but no modern online service? Was is this 2002 Nintendo is gonna be as notorious as EA games one day

People are crying about online gaming needing more than the ability to play online? I thought this channel didn't like or support snowflakes?

No thanks. If I ever get a switch, it'll be for offline only games and at that point I might as well hack it and add whatever classic games I want on it
Darran Askew (2 days ago)
To be slightly fair here. When PS4 launched the monthly games SUCKED. For 3 years they sucked. They were BAD. Recently though they have improved. I only hope Nintendo’s offering gets better as at the moment it does totally suck. No dedicated servers, no voice chat, abhorrent friending system. I do like their daily news page though. They do that better than Sony.

They should've kept online free imo -- was literally a huge reason I bought Nintendo consoles over their competition -- because I despise having my library of games I already paid for held hostage til I shell out more money year over year.

I'd add an additional bullet point to your list: for the love of god, Nintendo, offer some actually interesting deals on your game store. Xbox and PlayStation, from time to time, offer some substantial discounts on triple A games and first party games.

Nintendo doesnt do better because they aren't forced to by their fans. Every person who bought a Switch immediately after the Wii U your a accessory to this crime of bad quality.

All Switch is, is a portable Wii U with less features, worse online, and no dual screen.

It ain’t great. They would gain a decent amount of goodwill by not having lobbies and voice chat through the fucking phone app.
Leslie Renfro (3 days ago)
The thing is, if they made all the games on the Virtual Console available while people are paying for their online, they would be showered with love and praise. But, for some reason, they can't do that! Its just sad, people would pay to keep those games in their library.
Fragger Grenadier (3 days ago)
A switch is $300, now you have to spend $20 to $35 dollars to get online access. For $350, I bought a brand new 1 TB Ps4 with uncharted 4 and a controller, a game, and ps plus. What seems like the better deal?

I'm OK with paying 20 bucks a year for online. 60 is a little prizey, but... atleast it's awesome and it has servers. It takes money to produce these things, so why not make up for it by charging for online. My problems with Switch online: 1) No real servers 2) Cloud save should have some kind of USB or flashdrive thing, like the Wii U and PS4 (That should be the free version of cloud save. The other version dosen't need to be free.) 3) Let's be real, the NES games aren't enough. I rather have free monthly games like with Xbox One or PS4 or have a virtul console 4) Splatoon headset smartphone adapter bullshitness needs to STOP. Put a headset in the controller, (or use bluetooth) talk to your friends. THAT ALL YOU NEED TO DO NINTENDO! IT'S THAT FREAKIN' SIMPLE! OMG! 5) I. DON'T. CARE. THAT. IT'S. CHEAP. 6) There are other companys telling you what to do Nintendo. Stop acting like they aren't your rivels, course they are. Microsoft and Sony does online better than Nintandoes. 7) Nintendo are only targeting kids. That's why it's so trash, because kids are stupid and they don't care. But what about people who kinda has a brain and cares about online? Nintendo thinks that they can get away with everything just because kids keep smiling. 8) Nintendo goes super dummass mode and that's when they drive people N.Saiyan. Just saiyan.

They can do all that you mentioned, but as long as they don't give me local save back ups to SD, I won't get their service. I've been able to avoid purchasing it this long, I can do it indefinitely.

I'm a casual Smash fan. Used to love it as a kid when I had tons of friends to play it with, and when my siblings were younger and we all played together, but for the last two installments I bought the games at launch and only played for a couple of weeks. I actually decided to skip the next game altogether because of the online cost, as it's not worth the effort or added expense. It feels grimy and it's finally made me drop the series altogether. Yes, I know the other guys do it too, but I've also dropped a lot of games on the other consoles because of it. They could have gotten 65(or whatever portion of that they get), but now they will get nothing. Grimy company.
Roberto Taveras (4 days ago)
$20 vs $60. Sure it's 1/3 the cost. But it doesn't even offer a third of the features

This is why I still have my wii hooked up it plays GameCube games and I have emulators on it.
Beybrain78 (4 days ago)
I just want them to make online play free again! For kids it's TORTURE because they don't have any money to play online for the games I love! Without online, it makes Splatoon 2 and Pokken Tournament much less fun! IT'S NOT FAIR CHANGE IT BACK!!!

Nintendo does everything backwards I don't understand why they don't listen to Western audience
Scrungo McDungo (4 days ago)
I agree completely, right. But knowing most Japanese based companies, they only care about local feed back, aka what people think of this in Japan. So unless Japanese people are also pissed about this service, I sadly doubt they'll change it any time soon which really sucks. (And if anyone DOES know what people in Japan think of the online service, please leave a reply and tell me. I'm honestly very interested to see what they think of it over there)
DepressoExpresso (4 days ago)
All they need to do is add more games and I'll be happy. if they put gamecube games on there it would be 100% worth it in my opinion

I've been playing games since I had the nes in the room my my sister was born in and my girlfriends 1St console was the snes! Both of us refuse to pay for online because there's no point for us.

Why do people even still support this fucking company they sell people cardboard and they buy it
porky11 (4 days ago)
I prefer the less expensive. But the smart phone chat and the free NES-Games could be removed. I don't even use a smart phone anymore and I also have played all NES games, I ever wanted (they are on the NES mini anyway). I just maybe want to play SSBU online a few times, and maybe Splatoon 2 (but I rather play Splatoon for free).
First you had the wii it wasnt that bad Wii u it was bad but good enough to have decent online and services Switch...SWITCH ONLINE that screwed up the itself 👏

I really hate this kind of video. But I'm forced to admit, everything you said is regrettably true. I do not intend to renew the service until I have something that makes it at least acceptable, as it is, it can not stay.

One thing I remember from PSYCH1001 at UNSW was the part about consumer psychology, and how price is actually the *last* thing people consider when purchasing a product.

Switch needs to be that Virtual Console and needs to release a "Best of Nintendo" pack a month like: Super Mario Bros The Legend of Zelda TLoZ: Majora's Mask Super Mario Bros 3 Super Mario World Luigi's Mansion TLoZ: Ocarina of Time Paper Marios 1 through 5 Super Smash Bros 1 & 2 Mario Kart 1 & 2 Mario Party 1-3 So on and so forth Release older games that people will actually pay for through the service and I guarantee that people WILL pay for it! People WILL use it!

Well, now that I heard all of this about the online service. Nintendo, Rip! Ill be buying a xbox instead. Hm? Wonder how good there online service is, can't be as bad as Nintendo's.

Dude.. Do you actually enjoy or like anything? All of your videos are just about how your elitist views are superior to anything you talk about. You rack up on clicks for just having sensationalist names in your videos which is pretty sad. All you do is just find the worst stories and detail how much everything sucks. Care to ever post something positive? Or will it kill your click ratio too much?

being forced to pay to play my one and only online game splatoon2 that i'm interested in. which i haven't yet (so far). Thanks nintendo you really won me over.
Sly88Frye (5 days ago)
Can someone please tell me I'm not alone in not liking the original Metroid. I don't enjoy that game. It's probably because your weapon sucks, but mostly because so many rooms look exactly the same and it's so hard to know where to go, especially without a map. The first Metroid I played was Metroid II, and I barely played it at the time, but have since beaten it much later. The first Metroid game I owned is Super Metroid and it is also the first Metroid I beat. I guess when playing through arguably the best 2D Metroid, the original game is just such a step backwards that I can't enjoy it.

According to Nintendo fans. Nintendo has a war chest of money from selling 1st party IP's. But then they release this poorly cobbled together online service.
It's Nep (5 days ago)
If it was SNES or GBA games I might actually get it. But even then, it's a pretty god awful service. It literally locks what was free behind a paywall and throws NES games at you. Absolute garbage.
mmp1023 (5 days ago)
If Nintendo went out of their way to use the earnings from this to improve their terribly infamous online setup then I guarantee they would be getting better feedback. The one existing benefit here is that its very very cheap. cuz lets be honest cloud storage and online play for a year for only $20 is really not that bad. Its the fact that we dont know if Nintendo's online will be getting better or not that is the main issue here. Its sad to say but as it is right now it looks like Nintendo took a page out of EA's handbook, "How to squeeze more money out of players 101".
I feel like blizzards skrewup has made people say what needs to be said about issues with companies. Lol colab with blizzard saying sorry with diablo 3 for free xD

I could care less about the membership like ps plus or xbox gold, just play good single player games, but unlike ps3 or ps4 there isnt mass effect or GTA (Yeah i prefer free roam games when i get consoles) but when i want to pay $60 USD for DOOM which i can get for a cheaper price on PS4 digitaly.
bobsters 211 (5 days ago)
nintendo does need a way to get money from there products faster by adding the nintendo online but i do agree that they should add more stuff instead of the NES games...
Johny Opera (5 days ago)
i think virtual console has something to do with the classic consoles. Im not on top of classic console news but maybe they think if they let out virtual console it might lose sales, especially when the n64 classic is so rumored, that people would rather buy the ones they want on the e shop then go out and buy a whole classic console, but i dont know

Lately Nintendo is caring more about getting money... ($60 for 2 NES wireless controllers) Yeah, you can pay to play Switch games online and get some NES games, but there are no dedicated servers. Come on, Switch uses peer seed conection for online.
Gino Osorio (5 days ago)
I really love Nintendo but NES games?? Really just 3 a month??, Nintendo at least give 10 NES games a month for those 20$, or else raise online to 60$ pay for dedicated servers, and offer 1 to 3 triple AAA games the month. Or just put Virtual Console back!!!
