Smash Bros impressions so far:  The core gameplay very much survives the transition to handheld, although when the camera pans out it does become difficult to see what exactly is going on.  And that is only from playing the one available map, which is rather small.

Smash Bros 3DS stuff that caught my attention so far:

- when the camera pans out it does become difficult to see what exactly is going on.  And that is only from playing the one available map, which is rather small.  Items tend to be hard to recognize as well.  On the other hand, all projectiles remain clearly visible.

- I like how they handled the character select and after-match stats.  Selecting your own character and CPU's is done very elegantly, as is splitting up the after match stats in different screens.

- as was the case with MK8, the character roster is rather feeble.  A lot of my personal favorites are gone, to be replaced by obscure ones (Paletuna), or just another generic sword wielder from Fire Emblem.

I played as Marth most of the time, if we were taking ourselves serious.  He's still in there, but Ganondorf, Mr.Game&Watch and Jigglypuff are all gone.  I also played as King Dedede often, but at least he's still in there.

I saw that the only two systems that had a worse launch in Japan were the NEO-GEO Pocket and the NEO-GEO Pocket Color.

Only one game to speak of this weekend:

Don't care about the review scores at all. This is the best FPS I've played, next to Borderlands 2. I have full faith we have only seen the tip of the iceberg!

What about you, Guardians?

I mostly played The Sims 4 this weekend. I'm almost 30 hours in, and still greatly enjoying the game.

I also played a little bit of Simcity, Minecraft PS4 and Skyrim Legendary Edition PC.

At the moment I'm playing Teslagrad.

And I've spent a fair bit of time with Rune Factory Frontier, and the Smash Bros Demo.

I played a bit of the Smash Bros Demo (thanks again Iga) and some Rayman Legends.  I think that I have some kind of disorder, because I can't seem to like 2D rayman games much.  It's like it's all eyecandy with little gameplay.  It's fitting they made a Rayman endless runner for tablets, because that's what the biggest part of the game seems to be to me.  It's telling that it's best bits are when you're running along to the beats of some well known music.  There are some clever underwater sections, and I'm liking the Murphy bits, but overall I'm just meh about it.  Oh, and in local multiplayer the football bits are a blast.  The rest of the game is an utter mess in multiplayer though.

Are you sure about that?

Let me put it like this: I play Smash Bros like I play sports.  Winning is just the icing on the cake that is annoying your opponents  Nyaa  Besides, I rock with Mr.Game&Watch and I play a mean Jigglypuff on the right stage!

If so, I am a happy man.  I didn't folow up much on the barrage of info as I didn't want the whole game spoiled to me.  I figured that the roster on the demo would be the full roster.  Why else show all those fighters and have them non selectable?

Been playing none other then Destiiny. I'm really loving this game and can't wait to see how it grows and evolves over time.
