I have yet to be dumped into a free for all in Smash Ultimate in Quick Play. So I guess the update did improve things.

 
 
 

My early take on the mechanics changes in Smash Ultimate. They raised the skill floor more than they raised the skill ceiling, in a sort of uncharacteristically cruel move against low skill players. For straight casual play, this won't be noticed.

 
 
 

I both like and dislike the new Smash online functions. While you now have the opportunity to play on exactly the format you want (no Omega stages only anymore), you now stand a good chance of playing in formats you NEVER want, like 4 player free for alls

 
 
 

So, for those of us who'll be playing VS mode first, which of the original characters are you picking first? I'll probably use DK as my very first selection.

 
 
 

Anyone here manage to keep themselves from knowing the full Smash roster? And where is the rock you live under?

 
 
 

I hopped on earlier today to check if people still play Uncharted 2's multiplayer. They sure do. Got a match instantly, it's the best balanced version of all the Uncharted multiplayers. But be warned, the only folks left playing it are fucking savage...

 
 
 

With Smash Ultimate coming out so soon, I have officially retired myself from Smash 4 online. I took screenshots of the online records page, while the online is still active, and posted them in the comments. Over 800 hours, almost 24,000 battles.

 
 
 

"Rather than being inventors and titans of industry, today's economic leaders are simply the world's most efficacious pests."

 
 
 

{Wordtoid} Truth and Tree are both related words, both having to do with a certain immovable quality, a firmness or certainty. It's these kinds of literal and physical, natural connections that indicate the things people used to associate concepts with.

 
 
 

"We about to taste this meat" is a real sentence I heard a co worker just say.

 
 
 

So you want to know how SNES Mode 7 graphics work? ...Are you sure? (this is an amazing video, btw)



 
 
 

{Wordtoid} As my phone has recently informed me, LOL is actually short for LOLLAPALOOZA, it's a Greek word that would often get shouted when during funny moments in outdoor plays or if an actor flubbed a line.

 
 
 

I bet you didn't know that Piranha Plant has feet.


 
 
 

Kinda just realized that wacko additions like Piranha Plant are the kinds of things that used to delay Smash, like when Brawl was hit with 2 or 3 heart breaking delays and missed Christmas. See? The digital future isn't ALL nightmares :)

 
 
 

Every time you wish for Waluigi, Sakurai turns another of the DLC characters into a Piranha Plant echo fighter.

 
 
 

Also, I can speak feely about that dumb leak. Banjo-goddamn-Kazooie was never going to happen. People. Use your *thinking* brains! Shadow the Hedgehog was lame, but at least in the realm of possibility.

 
 
 

So, they increased the amount of hoppers for online modes but they also potentially merged all of them which is a bit of a bummer. More options, but less reliability to get those options. I don't think it'll be a big deal, but I do worry a little.

 
 
 

Daredevil season 3 thought in the comments.

 
 
 

{Wordtoid} English used to have a lot of its own more Germanic terms for things that have since gotten replaced by Latin, Greek or French alternatives. One such spooky (and cool) word is Lichburg today replaced by the Latin/French word Cemetery.

 
 
 

In honor of Spooksmas, I'm reposting this fun mashup I made a little while back of the NES and Famicom Castlevania soundtracks overlaid on top of each other.



 
 
 

Been playing some Valkyria Chronicles 4. Then all of a sudden, I found it! Anyone else know what this is?


 
 
 

Never forget this day.


 
 
 

Man, they just got a button for that now, huh? I mean, it IS 2018...


 
 
 

I guess hundreds of thousands of people who spend thousands of hours playing and very closely examining Smash know less about it than some folks who occasionally think about the game every 5 years when a new one comes out.

 
 
 

Now it makes sense
