As gamers we never die. We always have spare 1ups here and there and everywhere

I really wish they offered the steelbook without the pro controller. If they did, I missed out on it. I hear it can be a bit difficult to keep track of your character due to the more realistic lighting and sped up nature of the game. If this is an issue and not just a small handful of people, I'd love to see them re-incorporate the 3DS thing with the outlines.

It finally came! I wasn’t sure the special edition was available in the UK after hearing a while back that others had their orders cancelled by Amazon and there was talk going around that the GameCube controllers were being delayed in the UK.

So I’m really happy I got mine. Though as always is the way, everything happens last minute meaning all my free time is now taken up by other things. So probably won’t be playing this anytime soon

@Ralizah Wow is it ever. I'm only able to play undocked today (I'm at work and sneaking it in on downtime ) and really looks amazing. This is one of the best looking games in portable mode I've played so far.

Hope everyone is enjoying Smash. How’s the online functioning? How are people finding the matchmaking on there? Trying to decide if I’m gonna buy! Cheers

Will be getting the game itself, but just wanted some thoughts on the feasibility of certain characters for the Season Pass, specifically Goku from Dragonball, and Sabre from Fate/Stay Night. The former originated in a manga, and the latter's original title is probably not one Nintendo would want associated with their flagship title (for certain content, though I'll admit Bayonetta does kind of push the envelope on that) but I'm curious what other people think.

I'll get the Season Pass ASAP, and I'm prepared to have memed myself for not waiting and getting characters I'm don't like, but I figure if they're more likely than I think, I may as well prep myself for their possible reveals.

I managed to get a few minutes of gameplay but for now, I’m only playing the single player portion. So not managed to try out any online matches yet. Hope Nintendo have a good infrastructure in place. Won’t go down well if people start reporting connection problems.

Getting preorders on release day still seems to be wishful thinking despite the store's website explicitly stating you "can be sure" to get it. Tomorrow, maybe.

Played for about 5 hours so far, and here's my first nitpick: the stage boundaries are big and you take forever to die in this game. A powerful attack even at 150% usually isn't enough.

Online works pretty well though. Occasionally you get some lag depending on the opponent, but it's usually fine.

Geez I thought 4/5 looked good. I have not played docked yet and it looks fantastic.

So how is it? Worth selling my 3DS for?

(Disclaimer: I haven't touched in my 3DS since getting a Switch.)

The Mountain Man

@subpopz This is the first major Switch game since BotW that honestly looks just as good in handheld mode as it does on the TV to me. Everything is so crisp and colorful!

@Mountain_Man Are you really never going to want to replay those 3DS games again?

So my initial thoughts after playing for like 50 minutes while waaay too drowsy at midnight. It looks GORGEOUS. After the iffy graphics close-up of Starlink, MHGU, and XC2, my last 3 Switch games, this stands toe to toe with the X1X games. Not at at DF level of inspection but just feel and impression.

Everything about the feel of it and play of it feels great. It reminds me how much fun I had with Brawl and makes me feel like Smash 4 was just plain bad. Nothing felt exciting about playing that and I effectively never did, despite owning WiiU and 3DS versions.

I tried only Classic (didin't have time for WoL or online.) I picked out my traditional main, Yoshi. I remembered rapidly how bad I suck at this game. I fell into the hazards and died several times by the third map. The stupid smash balls still destroy me more then the enemy whenever I use them. However I discovered "fluffy texture" Yoshi. I now must forever main Fuzzy Yoshi. That's too cute to not play. I can say the Rathalos boss battle is fantastic....can't wait to see the other boss battles! It felt almost like playing MH. Give Yoshi a GL...or HH....either will do. The roar stun was a nice touch.

Only thing with smash is.....it feels like all I can do is the a button attacks, and whatever specials are on the B buttons. Having been getting more into games like Tekken it feels very very......simple. I keep expecting to break into combos and moves that don't happen, and it gets me killed.

Also, for all you guys not attached to melee, is the Pro controller a great feel for this or is the GCN controller really still ideal? I figured the Pro was the "official" controller now since the bundle has it....but....the giant A button config does feel like it's still so built around the GCN controller......half tempted to re-buy a GCN for it...but....the wireless ones cost as much as a Pro almost....so it's wiser to just buy a spare Pro. Hard to decide.

Also, there are some glitches in the game that surprise me. Ridley in Yoshi's second map gets stuck under the ledge almost every match...he does nothing but try to jump up and can't.....making him easy pickings. Then in one round bowser never even attacked.

@Ralizah When you play docked, are you playing on a TV far away or a monitor close up? I find not very many Switch games look all that great docked when sitting close to a monitor....there's either blur, or shimmering jaggies everwhere....or both (I got spoiled by Supersampling on consoles I guess.) But BOTW, Odyssey, Smash, Arms and Splatoon all look great. XC2 is a blurry mess on the monitor close up.
