Dammit Nintendo, Why?! [ COMIC ]

So for the first time, Nintendo will be charging you to play games online. Will I be paying for that, too? I dunno. I guess I would have to own a Nintendo Switch first. I am planning on buying The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for my Wii U, though. That’s still a thing, right?

    I’ll say the same thing here as I did in other articles revolving around the paid online announcement: Nintendo is just testing the waters to see what they can get away with. If they were already committed to it, they would have made it paid from day one; having it free until a later date is leaving them room to backpedal a la “Always Online” Microsoft. It’s a way to save face and leave an escape route should Nintendo fans throw enough of a b*tch fit.

    Dunno, paid online service makes sense if they are going to keep the servers running and working. However if that happens, they have to work a lot better and other things people expect. Also they cannot stop offering online service for their older software, 1st party anyway. 3rd party, that’s up to the individual companies I guess.
