The problem with game streaming hasn't changed since online was a thing. What is the bandwith and overall speed I need to have a smooth experience? At this point in time, it won't be as smooth consistently as actual hardware. Forget that most people likely share an internet connection in their house.

I do like going across various devices, though. Neat idea and implementation.

That shit is just Google Cardboard. You can't be this damn stupid.

oh really? google makes games?

are they GOTY like mario odyssey?

If you think this flimsy ass paper is going to deliver a proper VR experience then you're more off your rocker than I thought. They're marketing this shit to kids. The Switch isn't even strong enough to do capable VR. But, yeah, buy yet another of Nintendo's terrible paper kits and tell us the mindblowing technological experience you get.

Google cardboard...

Thanks for putting the full article!

Really fascinating. I'm no scientist, but it blows my mind that we do not have cures for HIV, or even one cancer. So this is welcoming news.

If we're speaking strictly on vocal range, Ariana. And I'm a classic rock guy. Joan Jett, Heart, Pat Benatar, Vixen.... all unreal. Though I'd be curious to see Ariana sing a classic rock song.

I wanted a SNES, and my parents bought me a Sega Genesis instead (I guess because my cousin had that). Fell in love with Sonic.

Why 2 games? It should be one game at this point with a true next-gen experience. Not a slightly upgraded 3DS game which is the vibe I'm getting.

- Same game on Steam but double the price

Steam is PC only.

- The console has so little space it can't contain many games

Buy a microSD. They're cheap.

- The user points don't really mean anything when games are so overpriced that they becomes "standard" in line with other services

Meh.

- Many, many old games decades old are being sold at prices sometimes triple that of Steam, in some cases at contemporary FULL prices

Then buy them on steam.

- Nintendo never discounts it's games, always sold at full price

Nintendo discounts it's own games after a few years with it's Player's Choice line...

- Terrible versions of EA sport titles sold at 25% higher than other services

Take it up with EA. Your 25% is wrong.

- On top of this, you have to pay for online that offers nothing, which is free on Steam

You also have to pay for PSN and Xbox Live. It offers discounts, demos, online gaming, access to the startup virtual console (which admittedly, needs work).

Would it be obvious to state the Nintendo eshop is objectively terrible and once again Nintendo fans are exploited to high heaven?

It's only $25...annually....

I'm trying to think of something good about it, but at loss.

@misrespect: RDR2 is overrated. I feel like a broken record, but Rockstar cannot seem to get player movement down. Your character movement is awful. The shooting mechanics are still subpar compared to most 3rd person games. Of course, their production values are very high which is a plus. Definitely not in the discussion for GOTG for me.
