    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    Emulators aren't normally that big in terms of file size anyway. The idea is a good one, but the most appealing part - that of being able to play on my commute and continue at home - isn't going to work for me. I have never been on a train journey with a stable connection, anywhere in the world, and the simple technology of LTE connections means that as soon as you start travelling more than 50 km/h you will be getting significant lag. Even the 5G connections I've been working with have latency increases. That's not to mention lack of coverage on some railway lines, even main commuter areas. A shame since, as I said, it's a good idea - but since the only place I can see it working is the place I have the most to play anyway, I'll be waiting and seeing others' experiences.

    And of course you can’t charge the console while using that, which means that @Pixelbark can have something else to complain about.

    I merged the threads. Let me know if anything is screwy.

    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    Do you play it from the disc?

    You sound very much like me. I pretty much never play football, I couldn't tell you what a driven pass was compared to a non-driven pass, I have no idea who half the teams in the Premier League are. I find FIFA a fun game to play, with difficulty down at the amateur or semi-pro level, and ignoring most buttons other than sprint (ZR), pass (B), shoot (A), and lob or cross (Y). When defending, A is tackle and Y is slide. It's worth getting.

    "Oh, one more thing. Let's give away some games every month, and make sure that some of them include all the DLC. That way people will end up with pages upon pages of football kit downloads for a football game they will never play again."

    At the moment I am playing through Assassins Creed Chronicles, often have a race on WipEout, have EDF Portable and Luftrausers as go-to action games, am midway through Guacamelee and keep meaning to continue it, and have just put Metal Gear Solid on there as a game I've never completed but fancy playing through. The idea of switching games whenever you fancy a new one is all well and good, but such decisions normally happen for me at 30,000 feet in the air where Internet is expensive or unreliable. Plus waiting 30 minutes to download a game you fancy a quick go on sort of defeats the point.

    Bum. OK, best place to get a 32GB card?

    I think I need a bigger memory card in my Vita. Do the microSD - Vita converters work? They weren't around previously ...

    No need to lean out the window; just stand up.

    Tell Amazon it’s faulty and you want it replaced. With any luck they will agree to a replacement and you can then ask them to send you the new one first so you can transfer everything. If not, argue about it. They will then reserve the right to charge you for the new one if the old one isn’t returned within a month or so - but you can then transfer all your stuff across.

    Is that before or after Forza Horizons 5?

    It's roughly once a week, but if I'm busy at work it can be longer. Sometimes you can get lucky.

    Not an exact price, but before launch it was announced as being 2000 - 3000 yen: https://www.theverge.com/2017/2/1/14474430/nintendo-switch-online-service-price. It was due to launch in Autumn 2017: https://www.theverge.com/2017/1/13/14261018/nintendo-switch-paid-online-subscription-service-membership but has been delayed by a year from then. The US (and EU) pricing was confirmed back in July last year: https://www.theverge.com/2017/6/1/15727548/nintendo-switch-online-20-dollars-a-year.
