Nintendo Switch Online

djonlineservice

This past week we finally got Nintendo’s Switch online service. And… it’s not bad, we suppose, but we don’t see too much of a difference aside from having to now pay to play online with friends. At the very least, it’s cheaper than both Xbox and Playstation for their online services.

The NES games that come along with the online service aren’t too bad, but we also have the mini NES Classic console. Many of the games are the same. We understand that more games will be added regularly — indeed, the titles for the next couple of months are available on the website that gives the information — and that the games have newer online compatibility.

We did test it out with our good friend Jett at In Third Person, playing a bit of Dr. Mario and River City Ransom (where I may have… accidentally killed him). That was tons of fun and we’re looking forward to playing again, both with Jett and with others!

All in all, it’s not a bad service, not for the cheaper price that we’re paying and for getting the chance to play some old games with friends. We’re looking forward to see what kind of updates the service will get in the coming months, perhaps games from other Nintendo eras like the SNES and maybe the N64.

Do you have the Switch Online service? What do you think of it?

  1. I did leave you to fight that gang alone when my mic stand fell apart a few minutes after. Consider us even. Both were hilarious! Cheers to more more gaming adventures together and hopefully less team kills!
