    Nintendo Switch to bring back the LAN party?

    Apparently the Nintendo Switch has some options for network play with your friends everything from firing up your own little ad-hoc network to using USB to Ethernet adapters to create a wired network. Oh no more dongles.

    Didn't know that - that's actually pretty sweet. As a kid I would have wanted this big time. The dongle .. bleh. looks like you can do it over wifi but its slightly limited. But it sounds like you can use any usb-ethernet adapter Good show on Nintendo with making this work.

    Ah, LAN games. I wish more of the modern ones would have this option rather than some online server...

    Splatoon should be awesome as a multiplayer LAN game.
