With Nintendo's new online multiplayer app for the Switch and other games like Splatoon 2, I think it's time to talk about what they're doing wrong with that system and what should change, especially considering voice chat...

You can't even play party mode in mario party online. I was looking forward to playing that with my siblings but now idk if it's worth even getting the game. Nintendo needs to stop living in the past and realize online gaming is the new way to play
Nintendo does do dumb stuff but with all do respect it's not that hard to just voice chat on your phone with discord or something but yeah Sony and Microsoft definitely seen to understand online better
When i was 12 my dad loved everquest. And i started playing. Vaguely i was supposed to stick to single play, his build
Guild, play when he's home, or avoid cover chat. I mostly followed that until i made some friends of my own.
Honestly it was great. Despite how much i hard my dad talking with his guild, saying things like nigger, faggot, retard, or all types of shit, i nerve had an even slightly negative social experience. As a 12 year old girl who had only really played nintendo games of mild difficulty. I pretty freely asked questions and did low level stuff and played as a healer. I mostly ran around healing ramdom people i saw fighting. Especially if they're lower level than me. Big ham spell, ham over time, then big spell again.
It may be because my dad had his entire guild basically babysit me. Or because of how i played in a very nice way where i didn't bother anyone and may just randomly help. But i was never even so much as insulted or put down.
Despite the repulation of mmos, 12 year olds, and girls playing these games, it was the mossy purely fun experience I ever had.
Maybe some kids need some karmic response of mashing friends or being insulted. Or hell, if you heal people but then also call them weak dumbasses and insist on praise,maybe friends who insult you and put you in your place.
The thing is, kids should be able to face mild social consequences. They aren't always innocent. "Protecting them" like that honestly seems like it will just encourage them to push the envelope when they're able to and to be maladjusted to these social situations.
But maybe I'm biased because i was a nice kid Abd People were nice to .e online. Maybe online gaming isn't that simple. I really don't know.
It just reminds me when people whine about a pet biting or scratching a kid well probably terrorized it. Take natural, mild, consequences And use it to teach. Not coddle kids from anything vaguely unpleasant no matter how deserved it is.
Don't suicide bait, maul, exploit, harass, or otherwise seriously hurt the kids... But come on, being called an annoying asshole wont danage them
I just really don't want voice chat for Splatoon tbh. It'd ruin the game, lead to too much shouting matches, make stealth almost impossible, and would put teams with non-chatting members at massive disadvantages. What I really don't get, though, is why the hell they require the phone...and then only let you chat with friends. If we're already protected with friends only, why do we need the app too?!
30$ for online i would do my reserch before saying that its going to be 12$ a year i dont see your point when u say we shouldnt pay for not having voice chat juat cause splatoon 2 dosnt have voixe chat dosnt mean im nit going to play it i really like splatoon 2 and im going to play it regardless wether it has voice chat or not would voice chat make the game easier yes but i wouldnt not buy it just brcause it dosnt have it but other than that nice vid
Lets all hope that the paid Online service will mean they'll improve it, cause I d'on't see why anyone would want money for a P2p connection... Like what on earth are you even talking about... if anything I should be paid for a p2p connections cause the consoles are hosting it afaik!
Ugh you don't have to make it hell for adults to be kid friendly. Just make the parenting app disable voice chat, and so what if a kid hears swearing or something? you just have to explain to them that it's not nice, if you swear yourself, then why don't you want your kid to do so? see! It's not a big deal.
Also they already watch people blog about people killing themselves and can hear harassment just anywhere else! they act like the switch is the only thing they'll ever use >.<
Maybe (incomeing possible sarcasim) its using a seperate app because nintendo doesnt currently trust their servers connectability to the switch.
Thats the only senseable reason I can give for the voice chat being a seperate app.
OR they know the servers/the connections to the servers can't take the extra strain of voice chat?
Bad thing is, iOS users who live in a unsupported country has to inconveniently make another account or change the account region. I tried downloading the app online on my Samsung Tablet and Splatnet 2 doesn't work. Need help btw.
The entire argument that it's for protecting the children pretty much gets debunked when you look at how they had NO security what so ever in their own voice chat games such as Animal Crossing City Folk.. In that game there were USB text chat AND voice chat. No way to monitor what anyone said, no way to report anyone. It was a open space for anyone to do whatever they wanted and talk about whatever they wanted. Seriously, I'd say Animal Crossing City folk to this day is one of the most secure ways to keep a conversation private from ANYONE.
The app is cool because it lets you VC with people that you meet in online matches. Although the voice quality sucks. My friend's mic kept cutting out his voice and picking up noise in the background. With discord, there was no background noise and his voice didnt cut out anymore. It would be cool if you got put into a team only vc if you were running the app while playing regular or ranked.
