    I think having 2 threads is pretty... 'armless

    This new Arms character looks horrendous.

    Looks like that crap Robin Williams film "Flubber" but with more punching.

    Playing now. Taking a bit of getting used to but matchmaking is really quick and seamless so far.

    Not feeling this at all sadly. I was bored with it after 15 minutes. I guess my switch sleeps untill Splatoon comes out.

    At first I couldn't connect at all. Undocked my Switch and customarily planted it in tabletop mode right on my router. Then it worked. 30 minutes of playing... I was sort of done. I mean, it was fine, but just not my kind of game.

    Sadly after really looking forward to this for ages I really couldn't get on with the controls at all.

    They just seemed so vague to me after hearing how precise they were. Holding the joycons in the thumbs up position just felt unnatural.

    I'll give it another go if I can whilst sober but not a great first impression.

    Not exactly reams of glowing reviews here - let's see what people think after a second try today in more normal, less beer induced, hours.

    I'm not going to get to try it until tomorrow but I was really looking forward to this.

    I wouldn't worry too much. Jivehound's default mode seems to be whining about everything.

    Remember there are multiple control options. Playing with motion control is meant to be half the appeal, but there are alternatives!

    Not from my experience but each to their own.

    Wait, this only works at specific times, not the whole week-end?

    How inconvenient.

    It's a server stress test so I guess they're looking to concentrate the player load over short periods of time to see how the infrastructure holds up.

    It was really late and I was just about to go to bed so possibly not the ideal time to try to learn it so take my opinion with a pinch of salt. It may just take some getting used to.

    I hope so anyway, I really want this to be good.

    He meant the other chap's comment that you grumble too much, i believe.

    Ah.

    Yeah, he accused me of whining for criticising the Overwatch Anniversary event on the front page a few days ago. Seems like he's creating a narrative.

    I do like a good moan to be fair.

    Right! I'm ready for this! I'm using the Joy Con Straps for the first time since playing Snipperclips. They seem to click into place easier than I remember, but I wonder if they'll get stuck on again.

    Had one quick go (I won) seems ok. I'll keep my preorder as I got it for a great price.

    Not sure if it's for me on the long run but fun enough. Controls seemed good.

    I really dislike the volleyball game. 1v1 is pretty fun and 2v2 was less fun but I guess that's because people don't know what they're doing. Moving and rotating seems a little bit awkward but the motion controls do work well all things considered.

    Tried again for another 20 minutes. It's not for me at all. I do good enough but I just find it very shallow, I struggle to see the value.

    I just had a draw on the Volleyball mode as the ball failed to load. :/

    I've also had a game where I was unable to do damage to the opponent at all.

    I thought that the mummy character seems really strong but I've had success and failure with every character I've tried so far. It's a buy for me. Should be good against EG friends.
