ARMS surprised me! That was a lot of fun! Motion controls were fine but standard controls using the shoulder buttons felt best for me. Loved the yellow robot character. Def gonna grab it!

 
 
 

After this third Testpunch, I'm ordering ARMS; when it comes to Nintendo I have zero impulse control. Based on what I've seen so far, Min Min has a good shot at also becoming my main in the full game. I bet Guy Eldoon is incredibly proud of his daughter.


 
 
 

I'm so damn addicted to "Hamilton", I'm getting really bummed out that I'm probably never going to have a chance to see it live. This is driving me up the wall.

 
 
 
 
 

ARMS clicked for me this second time, after I stopped treating it like rock'em sock'em robots.

 
 
 

Can Nintendo please update Mario Kart 8 and make its online exactly like ARMS? My experiences between the two are completely polarizing in quality thus far. The former has some lag and connection issues, the latter seemed completely flawless.

 
 
 

Tried the Testpunch anyway. Just was scared because it's hard to lift things with my right hand right now. Turning at the wrist is mostly fine, just sore. Won a couple fights as Min Min, lost most because others were more familiar. Seemed fun enough.

 
 
 

That's me tried everything in the Arms Punchfire now. Button controls feel much more clunky to me and I dislike everything aside from 1v1. The targetting system is awful and everything devolves into pure spam. Volleyball is so bad it's broken. 1v1: great.

 
 
 

When you're at Sam's Club and you go to buy a hot dog and they say all they have left is Polish (pic didn't attach, it's the gif of the blinking guy, see it in the comments)

 
 
 
 
 

Say what you will about Nintendo, but at least they still surprise you every now and then! ARMS is quite frankly genious. Not only super fun, but the motion controls are spot on. Love it!

 
 
 

Bungie seriously needs to improve on their armor designs for Destiny 2. What is this on my Warlock's head? A bedpan? A dehumidifier? It's a good thing that shooting evil the face is a reward in itself.


 
 
 

Welp, given up. Half hour of trying, no success. If you get in, great, enjoy it. As for me, guess I'll be waiting until the game releases.

 
 
 

Just quickly played a game of Arms there, my second match. Beat up a bit at the start, evened up in terms of fighting ability after that then turned it right around at the end. I'm enjoying this and the motion controls so much. So much control!

 
 
 

mmmm 3 communication errors. Haven't played a single online match and one of those errors froze my Switch. Nice. And I still haven't gotten adjusted to the controls.

 
 
 

So the person named Marijuana Walton who's joining the staff at my job is surprisingly normal. She goes by Mary, is in her 40s, is nice and seems competent. Color me surprised.

 
 
 

Plants vs Zombies : Garden warfare 2 is the best hero shooter on consoles....Yeah I said it.

 
 
 
 
 

Thank you UFO for bringing Raiden V to Steam and PS4. Now if other companies could get Rare Replay and Sunset Overdrive and Bokosuka Wars 2 on something that isn't an Xbox One I have run out of reasons to buy an Xbone and can save money.

 
 
 

Wow. I'm getting the hang of ARMS. Haven't played too many games (I actually missed the first slot) but all are wins so far. Getting pretty good (i.e. annoying) at the mix-up game, I guess.

 
 
 

When I joined here, I thought I would stay mostly as a lurker and post maybe once a month. Somehow I'm already at 100 posts and also managed to become part of CotW. Hopefully it hasn't been too awkward. Thanks for being cool, everyone!
