    No Karen, but two dudes who are definitely getting fired.

    That's £19.74 in UK pounds. Expensive for what should really be a free service.

    Sounds like a good price and I'll happily pay it if the online is more stable and consistent than it was on Wii U, 3DS and Wii. It's cheaper than the $60 I pay for PS+ and since I'm getting less that's A-OK with me.

    25 bucks a year isn't too bad.

    Yeah, price sounds fair by payed online standards. It's about half what I expected them to charge for a year so I'm pretty happy to hear this.

    A free game to play for a month, plus stable online makes it worth it for me. No complaints. Not one.

    We'll see if the online quality is better. If not, I think $25 will still be too much.

    The problem is how many games will they have worth playing online. Heck capable of playing online. Its no where near the value of the other two.

    Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and Smash will be enough online for me to pay. If Bomberman has online that's another.

    I get that is enough for you. But how does that stack up with what the other two offer? Rather poorly, especially as you actually get multiple games a month attached to your account with the other two.

    Well the Nintendo one is half the price, so they don't stack up. If Nintendo was chargin $60 a year I'd be in a much different headspace about it.

    I think that is the problem. The other two are twice the price, and still a way better value.

    We'll judge value when the program launches. There could still be more up Nintendo's sleeve.

    Arlo's a game channel that primarily does Nintendo stuff. Heard about him from the Gnoggin channel. Don't mind the puppet, he actually gives fairly reasoned arguments. Anyway, this is his take on Mario Odyssey. He kinda goes through Mario's history, and why this game excites him.

    I thought the 3DS, Wii and Wii U online was fine. I don't need anything special for online play and I wish Nintendo were going to offer a free less satisfactory service alongside this paid one.

    The online on my Wii U shoddy. Smash was a nightmare, with constant lag. Mario Kart and Splatoon were ok, but I had frequent disconnects. I'll pay if it means I get a more consistent experience.

    I don't have online problems with Smash on my Wii U, but I definitely do on my 3DS.

    Mario Kart 7&8 were both fine on 3DS and Wii U, though.

    Wii U online was fine for me. Online doesn't need to be too fancy.

    I'm not talking fancy. I'm just talking about consistency.
