Let's Discuss Video Games
For a while now I've had Cuphead for the Switch. Since there's just the one Inkwell Isle Three boss I'm stuck on (Dr Kahl's Robot), I've been practising older levels and I managed to get an A+ in Goopy Le Grande's fight and even a pacifist rank in Forest Follies.

Fun game, but the default controls are a bit annoying. I ended up mapping the EX shot/super moves to the ZR key and switching weapons to ZL, which makes everything feel a lot less awkward. Since the EXs/supers used to be on the A button (which is hard considering I usually need to fire, dash and jump in quick succession and their buttons are Y, X and B respectively). Adjusting the controls has made this a lot easier.

I don't have a lot of experience with Koji Igarashi and the Castlevania games, but Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (which acts as a spiritual successor to Symphony of the Night) has been pretty fun for the 5-6 hours I've been playing it. Some of the enemy designs and background art are lame (this largely has to do with backer rewards - you see stylized paintings of people with modern haircuts as soon as you enter the castle) but the gameplay is solid and the controls are pretty tight.

Aside from that I finally got around to playing OneShot which was also pretty good.

You guys and your Switches without Breath of the Wild or Smash Ultimate... And soon(ish), Mario Maker 2. As far as I'm concerned these are all must-haves and a Switch without at least one of them is a sad Switch
(some would say the same for/include Mario Odyssey, but, eh, not me)

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

Actually I have both Odyssey and Smash Ultimate. I finished up to the Darker Side in Odyssey, and I didn't make much progress in Smash (WOL).

I don't care one way or the other for Smash Ultimate's World of Light, really. My brother played it and I did not, while I played some Spirits. But the like 10 hours I put into that is a tiny, tiny fraction of my overall playtime playing mostly against my brother. The online is.. alright, too. (Content is great, netplay and matchmaking are done poorly, still playable) And VS CPUs and other SP content is still worth getting the game for, I think. But it is best if you can at least play with friends occasionally.

I heavily prefer BotW to Odyssey, but they're very different games. Odyssey feels empty to me in a weird way, like a lot of Mario games in the last 10 or so years have felt - which is crazy since I still adore Mario 64 and it even has references to it. Also, it's obviously an amazing game, that's just how I feel personally. Breath of the Wild will forever be the definitive "Nintendo Switch" game to me, though. Just the ability to pick it up and play whenever, to climb the next mountaintop and see what's on the other side...

Welp, just played Undertale for the first time in ages and finally defeated the great Sans. Presumably I don't have to point out how great of a game it is, you all already know this.

Their digital card game, Undercards, however is a lot less well-known but still amazingly designed. I'd definitely recommend trying that one out as well (it's free btw).
Yo, my name is Sean and I'm the host of 2 tulpas: Sente and Mae. You'll know when they're talking because Sente talks in yellow text and Mae talks in blue text.
