    • I know, I know, It's really popular right now to shit all over Nintendo's new online program. But that's not what I'm here for. In fact, I think it's pretty good. I'm here to set the record straight.

      Nintendo Switch Online is only $20 USD for an individual membership, and way less if you split the cost of a family membership. For a third of the price of its competitors (at the most), I don't really care what else NS Online has to offer. I can play my games online, and I can do it for cheaper than PS4 or XB1 users can.

      It gave us designated servers for MK Deluxe and, later on, Smash Bros, and while, for some reason, Splatoon 2 didn't, I never really noticed connection issues while playing. Peer-to-peer isn't really bad at all, unless your friends have really bad connections. And most of the third party games we play don't have designated servers anyways.

      You also get a pretty cool ever - expanding library of NES games, which is an added bonus. Now, I get that this is a shitty replacement for virtual console, and that many people have bought these games many times and might not want to buy them again, the library comes at no additional cost with an online service that is already affordable.

      Some people seem to think that charging customers for online is a crummy thing to do, but these companies want to make money. It sucks, but when you have an additional service for a product, it's a bad business strategy not to charge.

      The only legitimate problem I have with NS Online is the voice chat. Only Fortnite supports it without the use of your phone, and even then you need a wired mic. For me, this is a big let-down because I think it's something that can easily be fixed. All Nintendo have to do is release a wired-to-Bluetooth audio port adapter, which I've found on Amazon for $16, and release a software update. If you're someone who really wants voice chat to communicate with teammates, the price is more than justifiable. Using your phone is really clunky and definitely not an option.

      That being said, as the title of this topic indicates, I really do believe you get what you pay for. When you're paying $2-20 a year for online, I can move past these things. I think the real reason we're all complaining is the Osborne effect. I think Nintendo advertised the fact that we would have to pay for online service way too early. I was ready to pay for this a year ago. I was ready to pay for this in January. But the truth is, we all got comfortable with playing online for free and how well it worked. We all took it for granted as something that shouldn't be monetized and when the time came to pony up, it took us by surprise. 

      I'm really interested in knowing what the general consensus is with this, who bought it and who won't. Feel free to leave us your opinions, and who knows? Maybe this'll help some people that are on the fence to go either way.

    • Sony announced its Playstation Classic today and somewhat surprisingly I have been reading some threads of people who are not at all excited by this. Now, I am a Playstation man, through and through, so my opinion may be somewhat biased, but overall I really like the idea of the retro mini console and having it stocked with games. Older consoles, controllers, and especially game carts and discs become worn and useless as time goes on. Experiencing older games on a crisp new screen with responsive brand new controllers sounds great to most of us, but to many it will never live up to the original experience of untangling the controller cords, blowing the dust from your cartridge and switching the TV input over to RGB. I totally see both sides of the argument and I think that these retro consoles are not for everyone. I had serious plans to purchase the SNES Classic but never got around to it and now it seems as though many of those games I would've bought it for will end up on the Switch at some point anyways. Even the PS Classic is kind of lost on me now considering Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, and 12 will all be out on the Switch soon. So what do you all think?

    • Hello fellow Radarians! It has been a while since I have posted anything new so I figured.... I would do exactly that! This post concerns my newest obsession: Hollow Knight. Man, oh man. What a game this is! I am a major metroidvania fan, so games like Axiom Verge and Owlboy already appeal to me, and Hollow Knight is no different. There isn't a ton to mention as far as what makes this game special to me or stand out in a major way, but it is special and it does stand out. I like everything about this game. The art style is simple and unique. The gameplay is very simple and easy to handle, however, the enemies and bosses are anything but. This game challenges me in the same way I am challenged by a Dark Souls title. You fight, you die. You fight again, you die again. You try and level up, return to fight, die again. It's really a smashing good time. Something about the lore of the story has me drawn in as well. This underground kingdom of bugs, that has this tragic and mysterious past, is tons of fun to explore and master, searching every nook and cranny for new things. The other bugs you meet all have distinct and engaging personalities and voice acting, although they are speaking "bugish" and we cannot understand them without reading the text on screen, that somehow just fits perfectly and sounds right 100% of the time. My favorite bug voice is of the cartographers wife, Iselda, and her bored sounding sigh of "bafanada..." This game is hard as hell and super engaging. I highly recommend it for its playability and the way it translates from big screen to handheld. Some metroidvania games are best viewed on a smaller screen(Axiom Verge is a great example of this; on my 66" screen the game looks silly), but that does not apply to Hollow Knight. I love the way it looks on my TV and it is perfect and cozy in handheld mode. I bought this game while it was on sale for around $8 and I had a few hundred points, too. It cost me maybe $5 in the end and I have enjoyed it far more than Octopath Traveler(which I was SUPER excited for) that I paid $59.99 for.

    • So now that Smash Ultimate has been announced and EVERY SINGLE Smash fighter ever (and some extras) are a part of the roster, I'm curious to find out who everyone's main might be.

      Personally, I'm excited to try out Little Mac now that air dodges improve recovery. I hope that might help to balance out his attacks without occasionally falling off the map with no control whatsoever. I also want to try out the Ice Climbers and how their two-in-one combo fares against some of the newer fighters.

HOWTO: Hulu on Nintendo Switch OUTSIDE the U.S.

Recommended Posts

Guest /u/ToshieCodez

I've tried to write a guide on how to make Hulu work on the Nintendo Switch Console outside the U.S. Region IE Canada, UK etc, I'm in Canada but here's the guide:

 

NOTE: This doesn't fully WORK yet. You can get the app and even preview shows and set up your lists and even user profiles, you can run the app after all this on Switch (which is alot further than I had before) BUT you still can not watch things yet I don't know why maybe the vpn doesn't work with switch.. it gives a "This isn't available in your location" type error for me when trying to watch.

 

HOWTO: Use Hulu outside the U.S. on Nintendo Switch: Step 1: Change your Nintendo Switch Region, you can figure out how to do that here: http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/15987/~/how-to-adjust-nintendo-account-profile-settings-%28country%2C-e-mail%2C-etc.%29

 

Step 2: Sign up for a VPN. I reccomend UNLOCATOR because you can simply use the DNS they provide you with. Here is Unlocator's Website and you don't have to pay anything for the first 7 days: https://unlocator.com

 

Step 3: On Unlocator after you sign up, Set up your Nintendo Switch DNS settings the same as you would on WiiU or Wii in their instructions.

 

Step 4: You will need to sign up for a paypal account that has the U.S. as it's region. You will also need a valid but possibly empty prepaid Visa or credit card that has not yet been linked to a paypal account. I used a prepaid Visa card that was not expired but basically has no funds.

 

Step 5: go to the Eshop after changing your Nintendo Location Settings and getting Paypal Prepared make sure even the address on your paypal account is a fake one. I used a fake post office address and make sure you know the matching zipcode for when you enter the prepaid visa payment method.

 

Step 6: Hulu should actually show up if you did everything right on recent releases. Install it. After Install go to start free trial, and then choose "set up on website" , it will give you a promo code and a url to visit. Follow the onscreen instructions, and then when you get to payment method, (the email you use doesn't have to be U.S. only for sign up), once you get to payment method select the express tab instead of the other one. In Express click on Paypal instead of American Express.

 

Step 7: After filling information out about Paypal, make sure you put in that zip code you used when you signed up for paypal as well, it's important. It will detect you as being in the U.S. if you do this.

 

Step 8 If everything goes well Paypal will ask you to add a credit card or visa if you didn't already, do this and make sure it's valid. If all that goes well you'll end up on Hulu's website again in the previous tab you were just in on your computer, going through their on-screen set up process.

 

Step 9: Go back to your Nintendo Switch, select Login, use the email and password you used to sign up for Hulu with.

 

Step 10 Go through their little setup process again picking your favourite shows etc.

 

Step 11 Enjoy watching Hulu. Do not change your DNS settings back on switch or you won't be able to use Hulu. If you switch Wifi connections on your switch you won't be able to use Hulu. Final notes: If you want this service to continue you should use a prepaid visa or credit card that is valid which will go through U.S. payment filtering on PayPal to continue PAYING for Hulu, and also make sure you pay for your UnLocator VPN subscription after the trial runs out because it's also required to use Hulu on the Switch. You can use a different Service for VPN but Unlocator is the one I found to literally just work right from the start. Without payment or hassle.

 

So far all of this sort of works BUT I still can't watch titles on the switch. By following the Windows 7 SETUP guide on Unlocator though, I was able to get Hulu to run on Windows 7 even though I'm outside the U.S. so it may have something to do with needing a proxy set up as well on the Switch.

 

I also emailed Unlocator and hopefully they will email me back with information on whether or not their vpn will work on Switch or how to make it work.

 

If anyone has any information please comment here. I can run the Hulu app and I can also attempt to watch things. It still doesn't work on Switch though, for running the videos.

Hulu is one of the best website for streaming TV Shows and Movies yet you will get the issues about not accessing Hulu outside US without using VPN. While googling I got this guide to watch Hulu outside USA , Its really helpful for those facing issue to access Hulu.
