I hate to say it but I think I am already done with SSBU. I did a decent chunk of WoL and played with my fiance a bit but it just isn’t holding my attention like previous games. That kind of sucks because we bought our Switch after a long time of waiting because SSBU came out, but neither of us play it (fiance just got Let’s Go Eevee so she is playing that).

I’m waiting to be able to afford BotW now and I am excited for the next main-series Pokemon game, but I am hesitant with that too because they fucked with the game’s formula a ton in Sun/Moon and I went from being hyped for it when it was announced to not buying it at all the more I heard about it. Hoping for a return to the older game style for this next one, or combining the new stuff with some of the stuff they cut.
