Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and Bloom County are my holy trinity of comic strips.

Dude when I was young my parents' answering machine had that strip where Calvin fakes getting shot to avoid taking a message and for some reason that remains a mystery to this day they decided to allow four-year-old me record a reading of it to use as their "leave a message" message.

I will say Nintendo adapted to DLC and HD relatively quickly. At least, compared to online.

^ I guess so. Don't many Switch games only hit 720p, and often have problems even maintaining a solid 30fps? They have room for improvement, to say the least. Next gen is already gearing up for full 4K.

They definitely adapted to DLC pretty fast, which is...maybe not a good thing.

"SNES games not being on the Switch day one" is like the weakest complaint against Nintendo Online.
Is it though? VC has always been a slow trickle of releases over a long period, always with notable exceptions never appearing. Then they rebooted it for Wii U & 3DS, and the trickle began anew. You'd think for Switch, "well, they'll just at least trickle them back out at the same piss poor rate, right?" And no. Now they're not only releasing them slower and covering fewer consoles but they're tied to a crappy subscription service.

There's definitely other complaints but that's not a weak one. Nintendo shouldn't take issue with emulation if they're not doing anything to accommodate customers. At this point I'm only going to be interested in N64 and NGC releases.

I've never gotten PS+ or PS Now, so I've never played any of the free games they offer. Are they worth getting? I'm worried that Sony will discontinue them for the PS4 soon after the PS5 comes out.

I used to subscribe when I had a PS3, they had hit and miss offerings. Early on it was good, especially for Vita, they gave away most of its best games quickly. I don't know if it's still worth it though. It's definitely a worse value now that they don't give Vita & PS3 games though, but most people don't care anyway.

I'm a late adopter on Sony consoles. I got the PS3 in 2011-2012, and the PS4 in 2017.

I'm not a PS+ owner but I probably should be. They seem to get good games a decent amount. PSNow seems like it could be okay, but it's not quite a GamePass-killer

PS+------One million times better than Xbox Live.

I rode that Xbox wave for years. Now I barely pick it up.

They offer much better free titles. Swear to god Xbox is on some BS when it comes to that. This is what it's like in a nutshell:

Playstation Plus Free Games this month: Bioshock Complete Collection, Sims 4

Games with Gold (Xbox): Goat Simulator, *Insert dead Xbox 360 game, Styx

I am being dead-ass serious too. Outlast has been in games for gold more times then I can even count.

Super Mario Party? I played it at a friend's house; I thought it was pretty fun. It abandons the "everyone in one car" system from 9 and 10, but it's not quite the same as the older ones. If you really like party games, I'd go for it.
