@JasmineDragon you're not the first to share this sentiment in my case. I've always liked shooters from the get go and I like splatoon a lot, the funny thing is that long time gamers that weren't that much of a shooter fan seemed to be quite attracted to it as well. It's kinda unique in that sense too

The anatomically awesome evello is bringing the fame and glory!

@erv I think it's because shooting accuracy is not as highly valued and even someone who "misses" the target is still contributing. No K/D ratio on the results screen to make you feel bad either (and whatever results are displayed disappear within a few seconds anyway).

I also love that the game doesn't allow you to be kerb stomped time and time again. You might lose a few games but then you'll win a few but you won't consistently come across co-ordinated teams in Turf Wars because the mode doesn't let you organise teams.

I can't remember which game or which developer it was but I know one of them said that they had statistics which said if a players first experience of playing others online was a bad one where they were "picked on" then a very high majority would never enter the online mode again.

Any Mario Tennis fans here? I'm old (46), love the series & am looking for oldies to play with when Aces comes out

@andykara2003 It'll depend on how good Aces will turn out to be, and whether I can find the free time to play it online, but as an old hand at Virtua Tennis (prime reason for my PS3 to still be plugged-in), I'm definitely interested.

So far, I've played virtually nothing on the Switch online to be honest though. Given the single-player content with absolute time-killers like Zelda and Xenoblade it was just not possible. Things might slow down till spring, when Aces supposedly launches, hence I'd say there is a good chance, I'd be up for a match here an there.

You can find my FC down below. Feel free to add me, if you don't already have!

@Ralek85 Excellent thanks I'll add you now. I absolutely love Virtual tennis as well, I might have to get my PS3 copy out.

@Mips The more the merrier

It's kinda insane to me that there hasn't been a new VT or anything compareable since 2011. I get that tennis isn't basketball, soccer, football or even golf (apparently), but still, it's a major sport and it lends itself really well to videogames imho. A new VT game would be a dream come true. Hell, at this point, I'd be even happy about a Switch port of VT4 - maybe with some minor upgrades and additions here and there.

In addition I would REALLY love to see the folks behind Golf Story (amazing game, if you haven't checked it out yet) to tackle tennis next, because I had a really fun time with Golf Story, and unlike tennis, I'm not even into golf in any particular way, shape or form.

I'm really tempted to try Golf story, sounds great. I know, no one seems to want to bring out an arcade tennis game these days. Ultra smash was not too great & im not so into the more sim like games. Here's hoping they do a good job with aces. I just want pure tennis with no gimmicks - I hated the mega mushroom mechanic in ultra smash.

@Mips I absolutely recommend Golf Story, to any one who thinks they could 'tolerate' Golf as the central mechanic of the game, and to anyone who does not flat-out hated everything about Earthbound.

It's my favorite e-shop game on the Switch sofar, and quite honestly, one of my favorite experiences on the system in general. That is no small part due to the game coming virtually out of nowhere, with not kind of expectations attached, but beyond that it's also just obvious from the 1st second of playing, that this is truly a labor of love.

The game is extremely charming, filled to brim with small, yet highly appreciated details, all based around a suprisingly fun and solid mechanic of golfing - used to do about anything you would think you'd be doing in a Earthbound inspired RPG.

I'd go sofar as to say, that is one of the best games to ever capture the mood of Shigesato Itoi work, and Nintendo would be insane, if they didn't go out of their way to bring the folks of Sidebar Games into their employ. I mean Golf Story would feel right at home on a SNES, or Gameboy Color - and I mean that in the best way possible. It really harks back to those sensibilities in a big way, while adding some smart and modern twists to old formulas (which still have been rarely used in the last decade).

If you are still sceptical (fair enough), just wait for a sale - although it's definitely worth the more than fair asking price. Like I said, if golf is not intolerable to you, and if you do not utterly despise Earthbound, you should make sure to check it out at some point.
