    25 days ago - By iMore

    Connection issues can be a real pain in the backside. Here's a trick that might help with that.
    One fun aspect of Nintendo Switch Online is the access to classic NES games, and what makes it even better is the ability to play online with friends. You no longer have to both be in the same room, tethered to a little gray box by a 4-foot cord.
    The downside is that Nintendo Switch Online uses peer to peer connections in order to play with a friend. If one of you has a bad internet connection, that means that you'll both see negative effects on your gameplay. So what do you do if you find that...

    Want to sort your NES titles the way you like? Here's how!
    The Nintendo Switch Online service launched with 20 classic NES titles to dig into and Nintendo says that there will be "new games added regularly." I am hopeful that this is the case and that there'll soon be a massive and unwieldy library of classic NES titles to contend with. If that becomes the case, organization and management will become crucial in order to keep your favorite titles easy to find.

This is because the ROM handles NES game files like plain .nes files, which means that manipulating these files will be...

While China doesn't seem to have issue with Nintendo or the Nintendo Switch, it seems that its online service is blocked. It turns out that the reason why this is the case is because the Switch's Online voice chat service is being hosted on Google's servers. Given that Google services are still banned in China, it means that users attempting to access the Switch Online service will not be able to do so...
