Sorry if there was already a thread about it; I am posting this on the Switch forums and didn't see one there. My brother texted me earlier saying he believes his wife is getting him a Switch for his birthday, and my thought was that we should both get Mario Kart 8 Delux if that's true. First I'd have to get a Switch as well, and I am not a huge player of online games or even Mario Kart, but I would enjoy playing Mario Kart 8 Delux online with him. It then occurred to me that we're going to have to start paying for online play eventually, and again, felt that that sucks, but now that I am seeing the price, that's not too bad. Is the online portion something you feel is worth it?
I probably wouldn't pay for online myself. I've only done it for Xbox Live on the 360 for perhaps two or three years since you needed it to play online; this is when I played online a bit, and then stopped since I don't play games online. On PS4 and Xbox One I can play because I use the same console as my other brother and he just sets his profile to the main one, so I have all the stuff he has: play online, able to play the free games. I'm glad Sony and Microsoft weren't so stingy and did that. I would hope Nintendo would go the same route, but I am doubting that will be the case. While I believe twenty dollars is a good deal to play games online compared to Xbox One and PS4, some of the ways they're going about it all doesn't seem good.
