I seem to remember reading that the cloud version of REVII was actually pretty decent?

Better infrastructure in general- probably much easier to get everything upgraded within a smaller country.  Even out in the sticks I had insane-crazy-fast fiber Internet speeds.  Would play games like Soul Calibur IV online and wonder what everyone was complaining about, then moved back to the States and felt dat lag.  :'(  I think Korea is supposed to be the same.

Wtf is this

In Japan, there's cloud-based streaming games available on Switch.  Currently is Biohazard VII and Phantasy Star Online 2, IIRC.  I want to say that you can do a free trial on Biohazard, but performance outside the country is supposed to be kind of shitty.

Don't get why they didn't just do a port of RE7 directly.  The Switch can definitely handle it- the game scales down pretty well.

*saves cannot be guaranteed for prolonged periods after a subscription lapses
**your local saves are preserved and can still be manually transferred between systems

Considering everything else messed up with this thing, this is kind of a non-story being manufactured into clickbait.

Nintendo Online what's not to like.

You can buy exclusive NES controllers for your Switch to play NES games.
Also you can pay for playing games online you could play for free before like Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 2.
You can enjoy voice chat with backseat players using your smartphone and the Nintendo Online app.
Plus you can backup saves of certain games in the Cloud automatically.

Just wait for 2019 and Super Nintendo Online.
For just $24,99 a month more you can now play Super Nintendo Games and buy SNES controllers for your Switch.

Those NES games are an incentive for an online service. Being only once a week really isn't a big deal, even when traveling. Yes, it's unbelievable how bad the overall online service is, but this specific requirement really is a non issue.

It just seems kinda weird to spend money and time developing a lock-out system if you've not checked in to block people from playing NES games.
Apparently they're afraid people will fiddle with the subscription dates(?) and then be able to play NES games unauthorized.  :derp

Everything about this Switch Online thing seems half baked (as are all Nintendo's online shenanigans).
They should've launched it as a virtual console subscription service (for the NES games and other consoles later) and kept the paid online play out of it.

In a few weeks (?) they'll release a downgraded gamecube launch game from 2001 for full price. Any other fanbase would give the publisher shit, Nintendo's speaking tubes like Gamexplain just talk about how smart this decision is :goldberg  While the rest of that core community would apparently take a bullet to protect a cardboard from jokes. One can respect that company's work in raising an army of braindead manbabies, but on the other hand they don't have to put effort into anything. I think only Metroid Chibi Party 3DS crossed the line for the majority recently, but even that had some reeee hardcores who demonized everybody who dared to not be grateful for that game.

Also the deleting the cloud saves thing isn't really a big deal, it's just a sign of them not "getting it". Nintendo could do nothing (aka just not delete the saves) and everyone would be okay with it. But them taking the extra step of purposely deleting them if you unsubscribe is just hilariously petty. :lol

The cloud save thing seems more like bad pr than anything. All they really said is "we can't promise they'll be there forever after you cancel your subscription".

Sony also doesn't maintain your cloud saves for more than 6 months after ps+ expires. This seems similar. I'm not even really sure why people are upset by it, other than they maybe seem to think they delete your local copies of your save.

I'd assume the person writing those faqs for Nintendo still doesn't know anything definitive and just assumes the worst (which to be fair is still the most likely case).

Splatoon 2 is really fun so I don't know why
I bought it and really digged the style it was going for, but it has a lot of multiplayer quirks that were going to be just too much for me.

-A decent 80% of the games I played had at least one person drop out, often times multiple people would. There's no penalties, mid-match joining, or handicaps going on, so you might as well just kiss your game goodbye. There was maybe only one instance where I had two people in my team leave, but we still miraculously won.

-The players are pretty bad. I was in rounds with level 20s and 50s and they all play it like an fps. The only time where I wasn't on the top of the leaderboard was when I was trying new weapons out for the first time because everyone was focused on killing each other. So despite being new, I had to just suck up with the splatroller/brush so I had a chance of winning my games.

-Having to wait for items and grind them sucks.

-Leveling up took forever, I didn't want to even go from late 8 to 10 just to see if the game maybe got better with other players.

-Lack of basic features like chat/item planning etc. in a purely team based game is straight garbo.

It's like Mario Party, except without the focus on fun or being able to play with friends/family and having a laugh. Instead, a lot of the stuff in this game is just aggravating roadblocks, MMO progression, and bits of chance under the label of a competitive game.

Even if I take a step back and don't see it as something you're supposed to win, I don't really have fun playing it. :yeshrug

On to returning it for DQ11
