Nintendo is finally on the verge of launching its online service for the Switch, and guess what? It’s bizarre. I know, it’s shocking. This from the company that brought us a chat feature that somehow requires the use of a smartphone and dongle setup that looks like it should be pulling ships down to the deep. Two Nintendo-style problems: one is that it will delete your cloud saves if your subscription ends either purposefully or accidentally, which just seems vindictive. It also only allows you to use the NES games it comes with if you log in once a week, because Nintendo is now interested in doing a sort of absurdist pantomime of the bad decisions that lost the Xbox One this console generation. It feels like it’s living on a different planet from Xbox Live Gold or PS+, even if it’s doing it for a third of the price at $20 a year.
Who cares? I’m going to buy it, and so are you. It gives you the ability to play games online and it lets you use cloud saves in case you lose your device. As a bonus, it comes with some classic NES games. Done, print, move on.
