The monkey's paw strikes again!

After our glowing review of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from Chris Carter -- which primarily focused on the single-player components -- I decided in today's episode of Impulse we'd discuss our impressions from the online multiplayer!

From the questionably bad UI to an online matchmaking system that straight up spoils the competitive scene.

It's the most on-brand Nintendo online experience and has me questioning why anybody should be paying for their online service in the first place.
