Nintendo's Online is Bad and Here's How to Fix it

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... ---------------------------FOLLOW!­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­--------------------­-­-­-­-­-­-­­-­­­-­­­-­­­-­-- My Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/haedox Twitter: https://twitter.com/Haedox Twitch: http://www.twitch.tv/haedox ------------------------------­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­--------------------­-­-­-­-­-­-­­-­­­-­­­-­­­-­--------------- Footage from: Xbox Live - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfo-v577QHQ&list=WL&index=214 The Nintendo Switch App - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Utj9jRJhZDk&list=WL&index=212 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ABkGHF0TRc&list=WL&index=211 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2KxjAftj9Q&list=WL&index=213 Splatoon 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUFeC62xkfQ&list=WL&index=210&t=5279s

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?!

maybe people under 16 will not be able to use voice chat and you can turn it on if your under 16 and don't have parental controls

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!
Chloe Mcholoe (3 months ago)
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.

I believe that Nintendo should have voice chat but you can toggle it so you can chat with everyone or chat with just your team.

Miiverse was great.... I miss that app. I agree, I love being engrossed in the Community too.

PlayStation and Xbox also have a bad Online Network, because you have to pay for it.
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.

FYI the switch doesn't have the hardware for voice chat. Additionally, in team based games, if one person doesn't do voice chat it can put the whole team at a disadvantage

Look, the Wii U has a great online system in my opinion. I don’t really need voice chat in Splatoon because I have no friends playing it.

JustRightGaming (6 months ago)
It's hard to tell why Nintendo doesn't allow open voice chat, people jump to the conclusion that it is for kids, but there is an interview with one of the creators and they said it was all of the horrible stuff that's spewed online that's not just gross for kids but adults as well. It also gives Nintendo a better public appearance than something like the online system of Xbox which is notoriously terrible. However since their isn't much for online chatting having to pay for almost nothing is infuriating.
when i first saw your channel i thought it was just leafy but x10 worse but when i actually watch your videos they are actually good

How come I can't play regular battle on splatoon 2?
Bacon Party (6 months ago)
I agree with you but here is the thing i don't think that nintendo even needs a voice app - because all of my friends have skype or discord so i don't really need the app to communicate with friends But what about the people who i play with?-well i personally think that most nintendo gamers don't rage or swear as other people on xbox or playstaiton And also when im playing splatoon 2 i never raged when i got splatted or in mario kart 8 deluxe a blueshell hit me So i dont have any problem with the app and i like splatnet2

I'm an Xbox user, but I'm Nintendo through and through, and voice chat can SUCK. A little while ago I was play Plants vs Zombies GW2, and this was this one 7 year old calling everyone gay. I muted him, and had an enjoyable match. Just make a damn voice chat feature that can be disabled in parental controls.

Monsterhunter Tri had a pretty good online community on Wii. But yea they shut it down.
33LB (7 months ago)
however, the good aspect of a paid online service is that the consumer can hold nintendo's feet to the fire. if nonsense like this continues, subscriptions will be cancelled (when the subscription service is implemented next year that is).
33LB (7 months ago)
if i try to look up a pornographic website on my phone, i get a message saying i need to phone up the service provider and verify my age to have the service unlocked. why can't the switch just have a similar system?? voice chat is disabled by default. if people want to use it, they have to phone a number to verify their age. once it's verified that they're over 18, they're free to use uncensored voice chat. nintendo just needs a few reasonable barriers in their games to stop kids from using voice chat. if a kid gets past those barriers, it's the parent's fault.

1. Nintendo Switch should have Skype and Discord, with a headset (plugged) in, and the apps ALWAYS open. 2. Get closer to the router.

one way to fix nitendo online would be cross play, but that would require Nintendo actually porting there games to other consoles

That part about the disconnects are painfully true, I swear like every other match I get into in splatoon always results in a disconnect

I don't like paying for online. Here's why. You already have to pay for internet. And then you have to pay for the console. Then you have to pay for the game. Paying a monthly fee to play online on top of that just doesn't seem right to me. On the PS3, Xbox 360 and more, online was free. All I want is to play online without paying $20 per month. I don't know why nintendo had to do this. Free online was one of the reasons I wanted a nintendo console. And the online service isn't even that great. I don't care what you think. If you agree with me, great. If you don't, great.

MrGoblin1000 (9 months ago)
Honestly I think Nintendo does have some responsibility regarding it's online Splatoon 2 community. I mean despite a parent's best efforts they can't shield their kids from everything that they need protection from. It's why we have more adult tv shows take place later at night. So to just say Nintendo has zero responsibility is just kind of silly.
TheSpaceDwarf (2 months ago)
Well, they do have 0 responsibility and cannot get sued for their child getting harmed as it's the parent's choice to buy the switch or any other Nintendo product. There's also parental controls which i think can pretty much stop all harassment, but will also stop you from chatting with anyone

My biggest issue isn't that the Switch dosen't have voice chat, but that it dosen't have any form of communication whatsoever. Once when I was playing Splatoon 2 I met someone who was really good and they felt like a good challenge for me so I friended them in hopes of being able to play against them. They accepted it but the issue is that I wasn't able to message them so we could become friends or just set up a time to play together. I think that's what is most important to the Switch at the moment. They need to get some form of communication, even if it's just a message system, in their games so people could meet and make friends with people who play the same games as them

Nintendo having one of their company mottoes to be very family-friendly is an issue. The games they help distribute are good. However, it feels kind of strange playing something such as Animal Crossing with an online friend that has heavy chat restrictions as some developers didn't want to link in parenting controls for all the online games so older audiences aren't treated like babies by having the option to adjust it so we can hang out with specific players we like without a laundry list of strict rules. I remember setting up my new 3ds when I was 17 and being greeted by the system suggesting that parenting controls should be added rather than just pointing it out. The motto can be a bit self-contradictory sometimes as in the past they've helped distribute games, where the classification rating is higher than games for the teenage audience. Examples, include GTA: Chinatown Wars, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater, Resident Evil Deadly Silence, No More Heroes, and Bayonetta 2. I'm not exactly saying to completely exile young children from games with online activity per say to make room for older audiences. Rather expanding the parenting controls and give more varied options to kind of match-up players that are around their age and/or add an option for the intention of the online use - competitive, casual, socialisation, trading stuff etc. However, the above improvements will be difficult if the specific game is classified as not suitable for minors and the parents are tricked into giving their children a game not suitable for them or don't care enough to evaluate the positive & negative outcomes. We have all seen too many shitty parents that blame the video game for a negative outcome rather than refusing to buy the game until they're old enough to access that sort of entertainment and admitting they will make a mistake as a parent if they give in.
I'm 14, but I usually never use voice chat, and when I do, it's in a party with friends. I know people don't enjoy hearing kids through voice chat, even though (atleast I think) I'm not a so called "squeaker". So I just shut up and play the game even if other people are talking. It may be part of my social anxiety but idk. Every kid I run into gets yelled at by an adult cause they hate kids.
