Just got to work. Made up some bullshit reason to leave early afternoon so I can nip into town and get it. I'm very excited.

I only just learned there's a button for jump in Smash. I always thought you had to jump with the left stick which is why I've always found it so shit. Turns out I am the one that is so shit.

Ever tried double jumping with the stick? Feels like you're having a stroke

It's cool just for the precedent it sets. At a point where everyone had basically assumed we'd be getting a bunch of generic nintendo goons, post piranha plant, it's a complete 180 to then find out we're getting a charachter from a violent, stylised PlayStation exclusive. I love that they can still surprise the fans even after all these years of guessing charachters.

No. Best choice ever imo. Joker is great. Probably awesome moveset.

Its early doors I know, but who's your main?

Im a Donkey Kong man. My girlfriend and I have been doing co-op online with me as the big DK and her as Zelda, I'm controlling zones and shes picking people off. It's been quite effective. Very fun little duo to play. We've only unlocked a handful of characters so far though.

Donkey Kong's actual name is "Daddy", please refer to him as such.

Madhair just hates Persona for being in the category of anime aimed at perverts wanting to wank over high school girls. Which is only half-true.

Oh and the weird homophobia too.

In the original, I was a Kirby guy, then in melee I dabbled in Pikachu but was mostly Link, after feeling like Kirbster's down special had been nerfed.

Here playing World of Light I've been mostly Kirby and recently Captain Falcon, who I've always liked the power of. The Falcon Punch voice clip isn't as good as it used to be though, so points docked there.

Don't know where to start with the weird ones like Villager or random Pokémon, so might not get to trying them for some time.

It's mostly the homophobia (which, quite tellingly, gets a borderline free pass from normally "woke" gamers, who never raise it as an example)

I don't know... the two predatory gay characters in Persona 5 were horrendous and people did criticise that.

Kanji in Persona 4 was a more complicated issue, people praise it for even addressing such issues, (and it was from 2008 where any such acknowledgement of sexuality seemed entirely new for games) but it's weird, to me it seemed to be very non-committal on what it was saying exactly about his sexuality, but people act like it was being very progressive and tolerant, which seems at odds with what actually happens.

I'm probably forgetting something.

If you haven't upped the base and dropped the sfx and voices, you fucked it up guys. This soundtrack is all time great. Final Destination, Vega's remix and the main menu theme alone make every other song in gaming look like amateur hour for babies.

This is actually great. Had a whole hour of howling with laughter and raging with my best mate. Genuinely not had that much fun for months

Played world of light in portable mode for a couple of hours in my downtime today, then played for like 2-3 hours with bratette, who generally has zero interest in games but is happy to smash buttons and won us access to young Link.

Probably the most straight up Fun game of the year. I can accept it might lose some impact for veterans of the Wii U version, but this is basically phenomenal.

What homophobia? That Joker couldnt romance male characters? Or was there other stuff? Cant remember tbh.

Was my goty last year because the whole palaces idea is really cool imo. Jokers moveset will be ace.

We don't. That's not homophobic. It's gay facts
