If it's two things that Nintendo will never figure out how to do, it's easy, understandable, online gaming and how to add features without selling a bucketload of irritating peripherals and rules. Why can't we play Triforce Heroes with two people? Did anyone actually manage to play the multiplayer on Four Swords or Four Swords Adventures? Why can't we play Hyrule Warriors over an internet connection? Why does the Wii U store interface seem to actively try to make me quit before I make any purchases? I don't know, but I'll be buying the consoles and yelling at the sky as long as they keep making Zelda and Mario. All hail Lady Hylia.

I bought a Vita 60% for P4G, and 40% for Ys Celceta. Even as of now, despite having an OK time with a few other games, those remain the two best games I've played on it by a huge margin. Don't regret it one bit.

Sony wins because if your PS4 breaks you can migrate all your stuff to a new one.

But yeah, that search is horrendous.

I read all of the Injustice comic over the last week or so, about 150 issues. The art is generally pretty good but I was getting really tired of it near the end because it's really just one big excuse to have every DC character ever punch each other in the face. Not surprising for a comic based on a fighting game I guess.

At one point the Greek gods come and decide they want to wipe out all religion and Batman goes and asks alien Moses(?) to stop them so Moses and Zeus have a conversation and it's all good. Also Harley Quinn and Shazam go to the underworld and teleport back out.

I mean it could be because two things can suck at the same time. Sony's increasingly baffling, barely working store is bad, as is Nintendo's. Sony's is more aggravating because on PS3 it was bad then they got it to a place where it was fine then they broke it they just keep making it worse while the Nintendo store's have always felt anemic and hard to navigate in the same ways.

As bad as the PS store is, it never outright broke in a way that puzzled their tech support like the MS store did for me.

THE WHIPPED CREAM GENOCIDE BROUHAHA


The only console stores I've ever used were Xbox 360 and Wii. I have no complaints with the 360 and the Wii one, while clunky and slow, is literally just a list of games in alphabetical order so it could be worse I guess.

The Switch store needs an obvious way to look at all items (you can now, but it's in a dumb place) but other than that it's fast and painless, just like the rest of the UI on the system.

The Switch store is fine but that's mainly because it's entire library can fit on one screen.

The Nintendo stores can be weird. They're bad but not in ways that are as blatantly obvious as the Sony store. Like the Wii U one would rearrange the buttons every week and sometimes there wouldn't be a new release section at all. the 3DS store also has problems where you can't really tell if a game will have 3D or not and there being no standard for trailers or screenshots. The search function also tends to be not that great and it can be really hard to find a game that isn't featured in some way. Also, while people like to complain every week the PS store has a bad sale, the Nintendo store almost never has good sales ever and they tend to mainly feature the type of shovelware you thought died with the Wii.

As I said, it's not that the Sony store isn't a mess (I don't know how the video function on game pages ever works there) but it still doesn't make Nintendo's store setups good.

It must be really hard to make an online store for a home console or something. You'd think they would try to make the Place Where You Give Them Money pleasant and easy to use.


Wii and Wii U had rotating chill music; hope the Switch is like that too.

The Switch store is as barebones as it gets but it's pretty snappy. It basically just recent releases, search or big list of everything.

I'm going to strangle myself in a tangle of wires playing nintendo games online and honestly I'm looking forward to it.

I got some wireless headphones last year and they've very quickly become one of my favorite material possessions. Nintendo's take on voice chat is still insanely dumb though

To each their own, I guess, but I like the PS4 store, at least compared to the Wii U one. For one, DLC automatically installs and lets you know that it has, whereas with Nintendo, you have to restart the software for half the games. The PS4 one just feels like Steam with (admittedly not great) console UI. The Wii U one feels like you're locked in the Malo Mart and he won't let you buy anything unless you win a shooting gallery mini-game.
