You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I feel the phone app is probably aimed at portable outings with the Switch. On one hand I feel it's a bad idea unless you know for sure whatever wi-fi you're gonna be using is stable/strong enough for good online play on the go, so why even do so in the first place. On the other hand, putting those features on a separate device would help make the wi-fi connection and battery usage of the Switch more efficient.
The wording on the free NES/SNES game a month is bad. It can mean that the game is free to play for the month, or that the offer is only available for that month. They need to clarify that. If it's the latter, and the hinted online features for certian games make it in, then I think that part will work out fine.
No Miiverse on it is indeed a bizarre choice I feel. Though most games never made much more use of it other then a simple social media outlet dedicated to the games, that isn't really a bad thing. Some games made good use of it ingame, like Mario Maker or Smash Bros. And an occasional few games made exceptional use of it, like Splatoon. So much so that Splatoon 2 without Miiverse is a pretty sad prospect.
Also on the topic of phone apps, the next official Nintendo game for smart devices is Fire Emblem Heroes and it will be out Feb 2. It looks like a slightly smaller scope of Fire Emblem with some level of grind progression in some form. Free to Play but you can pay for convenience. How friendly this progression system is, is unclear at the moment.
Something I realized awhile back, but I find interesting from a design aspect and want to share.
Lucio is my main hero in Overwatch. This is because I generally end up as support, and I really like Lucio's kit so it all works out (most of the time.)
The hero I fear/hate to be up against most is Mei. Especially as Lucio. Because Mei actually takes away what I enjoy most about Lucio. The speed and movement. She literally walks up to my fun, freezes it solid, and shatters it to pieces right in front of me. I cry every time.
I haven't gotten any quests from the Illidari camp other then the one that occurs after the Broken Shore to go fight an invasion. I just go fight the invasions every four hours or so if I feel like it. You get nethershards in the reward chests, for killing named enemies, and for completing a section of the scenario.
Also these invasions give a huge amount of EXP, so much so that I know how I'm gonna get my lvl 90s to catch up to 100.
