    Mario Tennis Aces is so much fun.

    I'm getting so confused by it. There are so many systems to learn.

    I have mostly got the hang of the controls.

    Ok that is brilliant. :)

    Agreed a lot to learn but the pace of it is good. Looks awesome as well :)


    Hmm now I'm tempted...dammit :)

    I must be really bad or others just got good really fast. I believe the former is true.

    Yeah, I probably wouldn’t have considered this without the demo...

    Definitely wouldn't have.

    Now if nothing grabs me at E3 then I'll be very tempted to give this a go. Although I do want Octopath Traveller a lot...hmm :)

    Yep, sold on Aces I think!, certainly lived up to my expectations so far.
    I've been doing OK at it but got totally wrecked by a few players, noticed they had 3000+ points already though...

    So far of the exclusive games confirmed for this year I'm only looking at getting Aces, Smash Bros, and probably Octopath Traveller.
    I'm sure that list will be longer post-E3 though, should be a good one!.

    Struggling to get past round 4 at the moment. Either the players are much better than me or I get a dodgy connection and it’s unplayable.

    I think the story mode in the main game will go a long way in getting you used to the systems. I forgot pretty much everything except the special and got wrecked most of the time. Fun though and I will be buying it.

    I just randomly choose out of the four different shots and then sometimes accidentally add spin to them.

    A lot of people will be experienced from playing past Mario Tennis games too.

    Yeah true, I've not tried it yet but will do soon! Does the demo support local multiplayer or is it more of a network test?

    I'm not sure why but for some reason I always feel these types of game aren't something I want to spend £40-50 on even though it's a fully fledged game, not sure why. I think I worry about lasting appeal and wonder what the real hook is to keep me wanting to come back. The adventure mode does sound quite promising so that's something.

    I also think I would enjoy Hyrule warriors but again I don't really get what the moment to moment draw is to that type of game so I still haven't took the plunge! Tight arse I guess :D

    Not yet, people seem to be enjoying it over on the subreddit, seems very F2P friendly too :)

    I seem to be enjoying it, its a bit 'mobile' rather than a switch game but its a nice light filler game for when I am not wanting a more in depth experience.

    I'm not sure I will get Aces after playing the demo, I got bored pretty quickly and I am never going to be able to hold my own in PVP. It's not really my sort of game.

    I will be getting Pokemon Lets go though, probably Pikachu edition.

    I presume you mean Virtua of which there hasn't been one in 7 years . That's kinda like saying Forza is 'better' than Mario Kart, not really comparable.

    Mario Tennis is good but I think I’d struggle in the PVP, I’m bad enough on Mario Kart never mind this which will have a bigger skill ceiling imo.

    Anyone have Fifa on the Switch and have an issue whereby every time you boot the game or wake the console from sleep it asks to agree to the sharing of Nintendo account information?

    I have to agree it every time I play the game but what’s worse is if I pause the game halfway through (FUT) and console goes to sleep it kicks me out of the game and asks me to agree again.
