Agreed! I only hope they don't drag their heels too long with when they start to add other consoles.

Ah, now that's good to hear. Smile Er, read.

Honestly I'm with Jas on this one - it offers mostly all the same stuff that Sony & MS do, but it's cheaper, so I don't see it as that big of a deal. (I've had PS Plus for the past year which cost me £50!)

Don't they have extensive sales though, and free games that aren't NES? Which Nintendonline might have, but the moment we don't know that, and with Nintendo's online history I'd say it's too early to get excited.

My immediate thought was "is it going to expand to SNES games too?" because I don't really care for NES games, honestly. But it looks cool, and I think it's a step in the right direction! A big online-multiplayer-enabled library of games from their first home console is something I would not have expected from Nintendo ten years ago.

I agree with all of this, but I think that shows how slow Nintendo's been. Thus far I've been able to forgive them that because what they have provided has been free, but now that they're charging, they need to provide a bit more. SNES is the absolute minimum for me to hop on board unless there's a game I really want to play online, and then I'll feel like I'm being dragged over coals for it. But with the way Nintendo's sold this, and how long it took the Wii U Virtual Console to get up to scratch (debate point: did it ever?), I think those heels will be stuck in quicksand.

They do have sales which are generally good but the free games each month are more miss than hit for me, I can't even remember the last one I was truly excited to play so I just plonk them in my digital library and not download them most of the time. I probably wouldn't be subbed to PS+ if I didn't play a tonne of online MP like R6 Siege and MH World.

The games getting online MP has probably took up most of the time and I can't help but think Nintendo in the Wii U times would have given us something like 3 or 4 games to start and say the rest are coming soon. Everyone on here has sound reasons for not wanting to jump on so far but anyone else just seems like they are jumping on the Nintendo can't do online bandwagon, folk need to remember you are comparing a company doing a service like this for the first time to ones that have been out for 8+ years.

Thirded - I'm definitely down for the online service. PS+'s free games might be current (and occasionally they do give away "big'ns" - e.g. MGSV, Bloodborne, Journey), but it's also a bit more expensive. Free NES games you say? It beats paying £3.50 each time like on the old Wii/WiiU eShops for something labelled a "cult classic" by RetroDipshits.com.

Smash Direct at 2 on the 1st blokes - 40 minutes! Shocked That's a lot of Smash!

Followed by a Treehouse of Let's Go, Yoshi's Crafted World, Diablo, and yet more Smash.

That's not enough Smash. I need more!

I hope we get a wee demo reveal tomorrow - I'd love to get my hands on the game early! I think I put something ridiculous like 15-20 hours into the Smash 3DS demo. Shocked

That was an okay Direct, I though. Decent beginning, slow middle, and an absolutely belting end. Which is the right way around to do it.

Did it need 40 minutes though? Hm...

I did totally switch off when they were showing off the Help menu and whatnot. A curse of the Direct style format is that Nintendo can indeed dedicate time to guff like the options menu and get away it, whereas Sony and Microsoft at E3 wouldn't dream of it.

Cracking Direct as a whole, mind. 2018 has been another belter of a year for games in my book.

MS actually do, do that in the (sort of) monthly Inside Xbox shows.

Fair enough! Those haven't been as well publicised as the Nintendo Directs, so I wasn't considering that on the same level.

This is sort of why I started Guilty Sparked as sites such as IGN, GameSpot etc don't really cover these things compared to how they do with Nintendo and PlayStation even though they do have plenty of info. The next one is XO18 though, which is a rather big event that should get direct like coverage.
