Still see more value in it than PS+ quite honestly

Huh?!?!?! You see more value in a service that gives you 2 retro old games, cloud storage, and online capability versus a service that gives you games across 3 platforms monthly, discounts, much better online capability, cloud storage, etc? Interesting....

lol while I know my experience is the minority, It could happen shit i refuse to renew psplus because Sony banned my ip 2 yrs ago a week after I subscribed to psplus . When i called sony to find out why they told me its because of my internet providers type of service(nevermind I use xbox live,steam,nintendo etc  all on the same network and they have never ip banned me). They told me to fix the issue i would have to get a new router or do some complicated port forwarding stuff that is beyond my field of experience. sorry i know it's slightly off topic

It's just as easy to run emulated SNES and N64 games.

More or less.

But I didn't want to be greedy and demand Wii and WiiU games for free =p

Why not? tbh.

Wii was 13 years ago..... whats wrong with Nintendo giveing out a few of those along with their service?

Xbox Gold in jan is giveing Celeste (1y game), WRC 6 (2y old game), Lara Craft - Guardian of the Light (6yo game), Farcry 2 (10yo game)

Playstation does likewise, they dont give you some 30yo (NES) games, some of them are newer titles.

Why shouldnt Nintendo do the same?

Don't forget that Microsoft had already given out Tomb Raider for free previously.



@OP

Not going to defend the service (though I don't know what people are expecting for under $2 a month), but Zelda II and Blaster Master are absolutely not "snoozefests".

They are both among the very best games for the system, and if neither appeals to you it's unlikely many other nes games would heh

That's what I think. I know that the "free" games are the selling point, but honestly I barely played any of them. And it costs almost three times as much. Personally I only use those services for online play, so while both of them are completely unnecessary, Nintendo offers the best value for what I need, costing me literally one espresso solo per month.

Didn't even realize it was a problem. It's got one game I might well play through in Zelda II, which makes it better than most months.



Forget about the free games, the actual service is horrible. I gave up playing Splatoon and Smash online due to the poor quality.



Blaster Master is awesome. Zelda ll is an insult; nobody wants that crap. The big problem here is starting with NES....again. SNES/GB would absolutely been a better start. Nintendo's current fanbase on average are not even old enough to appreciate NES games.

Zelda II is an underappreciated gem of the Zelda franchise.

Can't be disappointed if you've never bothered with the offerings in the first place.

Can't be disappointed if you already hated paying for a once free service :^)
