    I would (as a non smash player) consider swapping the button around as 2 fucking jump buttons and neither being B fucked me up in my first match.

    I now have jump on b, attack on x special on y and grab on a and it seems to be a lot easier to play lol.

    I was looking to get this but not for 60! I saw it in Tesco earlier but it didn't have a price on it and I was in a rush so couldn't ask. Anybody know how much they're selling it for? Since they shut Direct it's impossible to tell prices...

    It is indeed, and there's a demo available.

    @monkman76 we let him out. Sick and tired of the screaming and crying if truth be told.

    DFawkes has been deep undercover, feeding everyone lies about Metroid coverage at the Game Awards.

    @monkman76 it was a ploy.. he knows the forumite of the year awards are coming up and was hoping a disappearance and a triumphant return will make people feel better about him and vote for him to be friendliest again.

    o/ missed ya fawkes

    If that's a triumphant return... well I'm underwhelmed, let's just say that.

    And yet after reading reviews, fuck it I've ordered it. Go on Kirby!

    Holy poo! Didn't realise Katamari was out until I watched a trailer just posted to reddit and noticed it was called "launch trailer".

    Now we just need a Ridge Racer game and this will be the mega console of all time.

    Katamari pricing is bonkers. £15.99 in the UK but $29.99 in the US. Tempted to buy it right now just in case it goes up!

    Why did no one tell me how much fun Arms is? Tried it out for the first time tonight with the boy. He bloody hammered me in a few fights and I wasnít even letting him win. The mechanics are simple but clearly there is more to it. Highly recommend. Not sure the love will last but it feels like the closest thing to a proper boxing game Iíve played!

    Someone should really have pointed out to Nintendo that when you're bad at smash, and only play against low level ai and other bad players, it's not especially fun for the game to start suddenly putting the new challengers at like max ai difficulty. It's just stupid, like it's rubbing the new character in your face and saying haha you can't have this yet fuck you.

    @Duffking have you tried changing the controls?

    The standard set up confused my fingers. I changed it so up doesnít make you jump, Y is basic, B jump and A special. Kind of like a Super Mario setup.

    Fixed my finger confusion straight away and made me play so much better.

    I was looking at the controls last night and was amused to read how to attack - "use the attack button".

    I'm thinking, "bitch, I don't even know which one is the attack button, bitch".

    I've figured it out, but they could do with a basic image of a controller with arrows pointing to each button.
    Unless it's there but I haven't found it yet, of course. ;)

    I use Y for attack, X for Special, and B for jump. (using Pro controller)

    Should probably put grab on A.

    I have jumped straight into World of Light mode and have almost started to shake off the 17 years of rust since I last played a Smash game...

    I've never properly enjoyed a smash game. So don't know why I'm tempted by ultimate. I do fear if I buy it I will feel the same about it as I have all the others. Can't decide.

    I see that in Katamari thereís ďsimple controlsĒ for the second player, how does it handle 2 players anyway, split screen?

    I had some great online games last night with some fellow EGers. Played it on the tube this morning and had a few games of classic and tried to win some spirit cards.

    I think if you hate smash, you hate smash. Only thing Iíd say to sway the fence sitters is that online MP means more chance to play friends if you seldom have people round your house. Bite sized single player content means itís good for an occasional blast on the train.

    Plus if you go physical, what would you lose to resale? Tenner max? Iíd say itís worth a punt.

    Having never played a Smash game, this kinda looks like an insane version of IK+, is that a reasonable comparison?

    @Pipedream I have my own setup I like (up too jump disabled, right stick does tilts) but it's more that I'm just bad at this sort of game. And that's fine, but it's bizarre that these unlock matches don't respect the difficulty I want to play at all. I clat least know vaguely what I'm doing so fuck knows what it's going to be like for newcomers.

    Don't forget you have the training section in the Games and More; which is helpful if you don't play smash (me).

    DFawkes returns the day after Robert Mueller files his report. Coincidence? Yes.

    Played online for the first time. A bit laggy so I might have to move my dock down stairs to the house tv for a while to be closer to the WiFi hub but I can see why people love it. Even if youíre shit and donít have a clue you can have some fun. Didnít come last for the last couple of fights too!

    In single player Iím quite happy going through adventure mode but found classic mode a good way to get to grips with everything sticking it on really low intensity.
