    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    Is the GameCube controller bundle worth it just to play the game properly even for casual fun? I'm really tempted as I do like the controller design and the joy con sticks are sometimes a bit fiddly. What are people's thoughts? Is it just for the super competitive?

    No it's not.

    Sounds like R* are trying the old psychics trick, if it works (and you have been killing animals) you'll be amazed.

    A wise choice sir.

    Played some original SSB on N64 with a mate the other day to help me decide, it was so much fun! I like that Ultimate starts with just the original 8 unlocked, will be cool to see how they've changed. This is now on my to buy list!

    That is good to know. Videos of this do look a like more snappy and responsive. Thanks

    I want to get hype for this but the only smash game I played was on the Wii and I didn't enjoy it much, it was too floaty and random, and moves seemed to lack a feeling of direct control compared to simple punches and kicks of other fighters. Is there hope I'll enjoy this one more? Or is that just the way this series is? Something like Towerfall seems to be much more what I want from this kind of game, but this looks like such a crazy fun package.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    Isn't that the definition of not liking something? Traded mine in yesterday, not for me. I didn't use the code in the box so if anyone buys this second hand and wants it pm me.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    The controls, terrible interface and lack of any actual decision making in missions are a constant reminder that it is just a game, which is a shame when the world, physics and conversation system are so good. I'm glad I tried it but it's not for me. I don't find it at all immersive. How can I be immersed if I have to constantly think "what finger twister combination is it to eat baked beans?".

    The controls are absolutely insane! And to add insult to injury, when you try to check them it quickly flicks between 3 screens of controls for on foot, so fast that you can't read anything (there are 7 pages of controls in total, 7!). I'm not sure it's fun to have to learn all these buttons, it's like steel battalion without the cool controller. There's a good game hiding underneath them though...

    I preferred it to the first couple. The companions are being fleshed out nicely at least, but it was very forgettable.

    Yep it's great with my partner. There are tons of ways to play, some purely cooperative modes. The AI is stupidly easy to beat on 'Normal' and 'Hard' though, so we're going to try the highest difficult next time!

    Wow. And I suppose dark souls doesn't have a story either?

    I think you're missing the point, the definitive 'sandbox' game developers having all their mission content be completely linear is a bit off for some people, not talking about the story beats but the gameplay choices. The feeling in Zelda BOTW of using the tools at your disposal and the environment in clever ways, or Halo on Legendary, where you could watch 10 people get to the same outcome in different ways, that's always been missing from R* games. (I've not played RDR2 but I'm just talking about previous games)
