Yes, I will because I play Splatoon, Overcooked 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe regularly online.

Besides, it´s cheap. I´m sharing a family account with some friends.

So that’s one less reason to complain about the pricing.

What do the payment options change? Every Gold Point spent for the subscription can't be spend instead to buy games cheaper.

The German word "Milchmädchenrechnung" comes to mind...

Actually gold points are worth less than the amount of money they can be used for. Because they can only be used on the e-shop. Say you have a good paying job and you get some games and gain gold points. Then something happens: you lose your job, unexpected bills or something like that. You have to save money, but you can still use your gold points. You have to think if you get a game or online for that, but it certainly feels like less of a blow to your pocket. Because basically paying with gold points means paying with money you already spent in the past.

Die Milchmädchenrechnung does it become when you include the future. If you pay with actual money, you get more gold points you could spend in the future. Although, actually I don't know if you get awarded gold points if you buy the online.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

I'll try it for Smash Online. If it's good I may stay (though I doubt it)



Not yet.
I am mostly playing Octopath Traveler these days, and I should finish Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion as well.
If I want to go online, I would probably play Paladins here and there.
The NES games being offered do nothing for me as I have played them all many times, and own them on my Wii U and also on a Raspberry Pi...
Cloud saves are meh for me, since I never take my Switch out of my home.
If they actually offer something compelling with the special offers, or start offering SNES, GCN or Wii games as part of the subscription, then I'll rethink things.

Sure, it's cheap enough and I get games... also, y'know, the whole online thing.

I hope they put out games for more than just the NES though the service.

Sounds awkward. I hope your brother's wife is not the mother of your kids.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not sure if that's a joke but I've never even met my brothers wife plus I'm still with the mother of my kids

It was a joke of the category "what happens when you try really hard to misinterpret a post."

I am not buying it because the last time I did that online gaming thing on a Nintendo system, TWRoO buggered off to another site to get away from me.



WHERE IS MY KORORINPA 3
