I’ve downloaded the 7 day free trial.  The free NES games are kind of cool, but I would love to see some SNES games.   I was surprised to see Double Dragon.

Cause they want to sell them to you for $9 a pop.

Seriously, I have a shitload of VC games on the Wii and it would be awesome to just transfer them across to play on Switch. But no.

I started playing Splatoon2 recently again (hey, if I'm payin', I might as well be playin').  WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO STARFISH MAINSTAGE?  Like a quarter of that stage has been totaly changed.  cool

I've also found a new weapon I really like: the wonderfully named bloblobber.  It's a bucket type weapon, but instead of splashes of ink, it lobs blobs that bounce ahead a bit before disappearing!  It's a joyous thing, allowing the wielder to bounce the bubbles off walls and effectively shoot around corners.  I never thought I'd get used to a weapon that requires you to pull the trigger for every shot, but this one is such a gamechanger and a joy to use.  The secondary weapon is my old time favorite, the splatwall, giving the weapon a pretty good defensive option.  The special is the cloud of rain, which, while not very usefull, is annoying for the other team and it loads pretty fast, meaning I can deploy it a couple of times per match.  And best of all, the thing looks like an urinal bowl.  LOL

Bildergebnis für bloblobber

Also, when googling for an image, apparently the Splatoon community got in a fit over it when it launched, claiming it's overpowered.  I can see where they're coming from, but I don't think it's more powerfull than some other weapons or classes in the game.  I'm looking at you, rollers.  angry

edit: it apears to look more like a bubble bath, which still is pretty cool if you ask me.  Not urinal cool, but cool nontheless.

[nintendolife.com]We Like To Grumble, But Switch Online Is Actually   A Very Generous Offer

This editorial claims that Switch Online isn't a bad deal and compares it to the more expensive PS and Xbone offers.  Honestly, with the competition, it's as if you're paying a yearly subscription to free games, and all the rest is just added benefit.  The same can't be said for Nintendo's offer.

So I was reading that Nintendolife artical on the value of Nintendo Online. They said you could set up a family membership between anyone worldwide. Which effectively means you could pay $5 each a year for the service.

Something to think about. I need to watch that video, it might be a good deal for a bunch of us if it's feasible.

That weapon is a game changer. Honestly I have played Salmon run so much there has been tons and tons of added stuff, including stages. Playing Splatoon 2 today is completely different than launch day. The amount of content they added is awesome.

I think the price difference is huge for me. Paying £50 a year for online would be far more than I would be comfortable with. The free games is great, but I don't play enough to even take advantage of it. So for me, basic but cheap is the best option.

^ it's not so bad as to be insulting if you need just one subscription. It's a good deal if a lot of people in your household play on Switch. But for me, on a 2 account household, €35 a year for what amounts to very little does seem too expensive.

Why do you need two accounts in the same household? I thought anyone in the house could use the same account? That's what I heard.

Irony of the day:

Grammaton in era in the RDR2 thread responding to some guy that feels some people hate everything and don't let you enjoy games

"There's a subsection of people always ready to jump on and deride a particular franchise, developer or platform and frankly, they are easy to spot and even easier to ignore."

I'm trying to avoid any more info on it my dude. LOL It's tough to do.

Did you see the Nemesis remake somebody made in Far Cry 5? I'll find the video...

How on earth can paying for Nintendo's terrible online service be a good deal? It's a bad enough deal with Xbox Live and Playstation Plus.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

I'm going to take Grammaton's advice and just ignore you. Nyaa

And yes, I do see the irony in replying to you in order to ignore you.

With only one account, you can only have one character in Splatoon2, just to give one example.
