Direct announced for Wednesday at 10am Eastern / 3pm UK. Apparently more Smash Ultimate news, which I assume will include the final characters to be announced.

I hope they'll announce some game modes too. The Direct they had for the Wii U and 3DS games was very thorough, so I'd like something like that.

I finished Sonic Mania on Sunday. Well, almost, sodding chasing the robot for sodding Chaos Emeralds. It's so much fun. A nice mix of new-old and new-new levels, most of which quite high octane and with surprising variety in terms of boss battles. Definitely worth £30. Would be worth your standard £50 too tbh. I'm now in 'Encore' mode - I'm not sure why it exists as it goes back into the Sonic Mania story after a couple of remix levels at the start, but it's good to play through the game again so soon.

I may pop over and check on the PC player base, but I'm a wee bit concerned on how people keep describing Hollow Knight and Dead Cells as difficult games.  I'd be curious to know how they compare to something like Rogue Legacy before I plunk down $35 for both.

Pretty great reveals across the board. The Belmonts are such no-brainers that I'm surprised I didn't see any actual speculation about them. Chrom and Dark Samus are kinda weak but since echos are a big part of the deal now it's sort of a "why not?" thing. K. Rool is of course an obvious pick and is in that Ridley school of characters who were gonna make it in eventually.

It's gonna be a mode where you can put in any video game ever and it'll draw out a fuckin' Marth echo from the cartridge, Monster Rancher style.

It should be a Nintendo dating sim featuring all the characters in Smash Bros. You should also be able to have the characters procreate and make babies that look like a combination of the two characters. Like for example, what if Kirby and Princess Peach got married and had three babies?

Amidst all this excitement, let's not forget that Luigi was murdered today.

Baby, don't say that. You are experienced. And your hairline is just taking an extended vacation.

I don't have time to Google this shit. Assume Pichu is barely legal and Sonic has aged twenty years.

Quick update regarding Dead Cells on the Switch:  yes, it can be overly chaotic initially and there are some hiccups regarding the frame rate, but if you even remotely like this sort of game, you will very likely get hooked.

I've reached the first boss only once thanks to what I thought was an awesome build, but got thwacked pretty quickly during the boss fight.  With more cells, I'll get better drops and hopefully things will be a bit easier.  Those sewer scorpions and every enemy that can pass through walls can bite me.
