Or if you know some other people that want it as well you can get the AUD$55 family pass, which can have up to 8 accounts connected to it and will bring the price down if you split the costs.

I don’t know anyone. Lol.
And the people I do know are all complaining about how the switch costs too much, then spend $700 on a cpu ;)
And a subscription for like 5 nes games doesn’t seem like a great incentive..

I have a 20 year old computer to play the entire library of nes, snes and gb games and it cost $5..
If the switch had a library worthy of subscription I’d be all over it.

Give me all those games the 20 year old computer can do, and bet your ass I’ll subscribe.

Even ONLY Nintendo developed games from nes and snes and it’d be worth it.

The $30 yearly subscription would be better spent on mobile data lol
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

It's more like 20+ NES games now. And Tetris 99.

SNES games will come eventually.

I mean, that’s cool if you don’t see the value of the online service. But on the flip side, you can’t complain that a game that requires the service isn’t free because you have to pay for the service.

I find it funny how excited I was over something as basic as adding slopes in Mario Maker.
Me too. :olol: The switch blocks, new enemies and moving blocks are going to be crazy.

I hope they keep the same online functions like subscribing other levels and such. Some folks had some awesome experiences uploaded to the service.

Nice, I always wondered if Nintendo would eventually pick it up.

MS own the rights to the IP & the game code, so if it is coming out they must have sold them to either Platinum or Nintendo or worked out some sort of deal.

Yeah, that sounds like a great idea. I've gotten bad results from trying PS Now in the past, but I'd be willing to try Xbox Game Pass.

It looks like it's running well. I didn't notice that it was running at 30 FPS.

Big-ass races like this would be awesome in the next Mario Kart, good for some online mayhem. And I go back and forth on whether it's a good idea for Mario Kart to follow Smash Bros. by becoming a huge crossover title. They've dipped their foot in that pool, it's probably inevitable that they keep adding more franchises to future kart titles.

I'd like to see some big 60+ player online kart races eventually. It would be pretty cool.
