    Nintendo Switch

    It has Dragon Ball FighterZ at least and that's one of the biggest fighting games of the moment. I was quite surprised Soulcalibur wasn't announced for Switch. With regard to Street Fighter V I really wish the specifics of the deal with Sony were known. I'd love to see it on other platforms. I think I'd prefer USFIV on Switch though (especially if they made Team Battle available offline).

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    I guess read "compatible" out loud and if you find yourself doing a bit of an accent it must be French.

    There absolutely is not a way to invite them unless you have a means of communication outwith the Switch itself. Wahey! EDIT: took ages to find a match at all, on any of the four games. Eventually got the same person several times in a row and they'd quit every time I won. https://twitter.com/joffocakes/status/1062123848366084096?s=19

    They did improve Bomberman a fair bit post launch, doubling the frame rate to 60fps and adding characters and stuff. It plays a decent enough game of Bomberman but probably not for full price. Towerfall is out on Switch now and it supports 6 players. It's magnificent. Overcooked (and its sequel) is also great with it's cooperative and competitive modes though it can make people very frustrated with each other, haha.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Yeah that infinite rotation has been a thing for a while; it's specified in the Tetris Guideline so I guess it has to be there. Tetris DS was a great Tetris game but sullied a little in its endless mode because you could just hammer A to keep a piece slipping around while you decided your next move. Versus modes imposed a max number of rotations, though. I just finished the Journey and had a fabulous time. Terrible scores, though. Nothing higher than A rank at all. Gonna take me a fair while to get those trophies. I almost regret selling my PSVR because it'd be nice to give this a go. Not £200 nice though.

    There's a YouTube playlist of the soundtrack sampler: Here's Connected (Yours Forever) itself:

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Stayed up until the game unlocked, on a school night. Had a quick go of the first two sets of stages and it's all so beautiful. Had a quick go of Marathon and got a clumsy B rank finish. I'm looking forward to obsessing over this game riiiight up to the point where others' achievements make me feel inadequate.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I preferred the Wii U gamepad over the GameCube contoller for Smash 4. I guess I'll stick to using the JoyCon for Ultimate and player 2 can use the Switch Pro Controller. I'll save the GameCube adapter for when folk come over to play.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I find it odd that Akira has made it in ahead of any Tekken rep considering Virtua Fighter hasn't made a proper appearance on a Nintendo Console other than Mega Drive versions on Virtual Console as far as I can recall. And Virtua Quest on GameCube, if that even counts. Pretty excited for the replay mode since it appears to allow you to convert to video, presumably for uploading to social media/YouTube. The 30-second, low quality clips the Switch offers ain't too great so hopefully it allows for crisper, 60fps videos of moderate length to be shared. The Xbox 360 version of 3rd Strike Online Edition let you convert replays to video and upload direct to YouTube but they all went up under the sf3onlineedition YouTube channel and they were 30fps and 240p. Horrid. I think the PS3 equivalent was a little better. Also I am excited to see some Street Fighter references in the World Of Light map. Maybe M Bison as a boss? I can dream.

    Games you keep buying despite not liking them

    The Elder Scrolls games. I played Morrowind on Xbox for 40 hours(!) and it was a tedious, buggy mess. I stopped when it showed me mercy by crashing one final time, corrupting my save for good. I did manage to ignore Oblivion however all the hype and popularity of Skyrim led me to make the same mistake again. I'm definitely going to pass on Elder Scrolls games in future. Unless Skyrim goes on sale on Switch. I also end up buying one FIFA game per gen, whatever the previous year's was, when they're about £1.50 and I always regret it.

    ARMS. Edit: Pocket Rumble is also absolutely excellent and comparatively cheap.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    Yeah it's a game I'd really like to try in VR but PSVR's resolution isn't great. Maybe they'll have an upgraded model that's compatible with the older software soon. Are there local multiplayer modes in this? That's the most important thing to me with Tetris.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    I was quite happy to let this one slip by and pick it up cheap later but that demo really is something else. Fantastic stuff hearing the music sync up with my button presses. Or maybe I started pressing buttons in time to the music. It is impossible to say. Hit the limit of 50 lines on Marathon then checked how I did against friends' scores and of course Donut was ahead of me as usual. Some of the high scores are in the millions. Zone mode didn't seem to be available in Marathon so is it just folk playing Endless Marathon or a technique I'm missing? Seems weird that those scores would be on the same leaderboard.

    Yep! Which is delightful.
