Please, please explain to me how people can defend no online at this day and age

Nintendo Land Should have online for some of it's games. Maybe even a Leaderboard for the single player ones.

Really no excuse for Mario U either.

Well Mario U would be far more difficult outside adding multiplayer specific modes. Co-Op would be impossible for main the main story as the game isn't designed well enough for it. I can see Co-Op speed Runs where you can track where your buddy(ies) are, maybe other modes but really 2D Marios aren't going to have a lot of online modes to go on.

It would work fine. Have an option to enable or disable online for friends on your friend list only, make it so they can ask to join in at any time (with your permission). As it is your game, you would choose which levels to play, and any communication done (if any, none really needed) would be done through the mic on the gamepad.

Nintendo Land could have specific online modes, hell even random matchmaking. At the very least, with friends. I know that Nintendo Land was designed to show off the Wii U's features, but it still should have had online modes.

You shouldn't force specific online play into games.

Nintendo Land, Bioshock infinite, Pikmin 3. Have no online multiplayer.

I say Nintendo Land online isn't completely necessary. As mutiplayer games like Luigi Ghost mansion is something you want 3 other people to be with you in a room to work together.

Alot of games this gen had tacked on online multiplayer (Bioshock 2)

You shouldn't force game developers to have specific features that they feel are unnecessary.

Nobody has yet to give a clear and unarguable reason as to why online multiplayer ABSOLUTELY MUST be a part of any game with a multiplayer component. Until you can DO that, saying anything is indefensible is pure BS.


This is quite frankly a pathetic cop out. Why MUST any game have multiplayer at all, why MUST games be made full stop?

Not everyone has friends who are local enough to utilise local multiplayer, online eliminates this problem and provides a much better experience for millions of people in such situations. If you can't comprehend this then nothing will ever get through to you.


"Not everyone has friends who are local enough"

People need to get out of the ******* house more then. Go have some actual human contact and interaction for christ sake.


Yeah, because not having local friends who you can play a game with automatically means you are a neckbeard who never gets out.

If Nintendo says I don't need online, then I don't need online.

I disagree. Online in Nintendo Land would be fairly pointless.

NSMBU on the other hand...


I agree with this. Theres no reason for Nintendo Land to have online play, and theres no reason for NSMBU to NOT have online play.

People have already given several reasons why it makes sense not to have both. And nobody has said that games *must* have local multiplayer.

I don't give a damn about playing a game online.

Ditto.

It's because of Japan. No, seriously. Japanese gamers don't value online as heavily as Western gamers. It's the reason why Streetpass for the 3DS was designed the way it was -- because of the sheer amount of people on subways who would cross paths regularly. You could easily cap out your Streetpass folks in just a few minutes in certain areas. Apart from a certain handful of games, Japanese gamers simply don't play online nearly to the same capacity. Nintendo has ALWAYS designed with Japanese gamers in mind -- heck, it's only halfway through the current generation that Japanese developers really started making a huge, significant push toward online.

This is true. Until Japan fully embraces online, Nintendo will not.
