Playing every track more seriously to get a spot in the in-game top 9s. I have been first in 6 leaderboards simultaneously at one point.

★★★★★ I'm invested in playing Time Trials. I really like the way that the boost system creates a big gap bewteen people with different skill levels; it's just like my old love, MKDS, even though boosts work completely differently (and aren't as painful in CTR on my thumb). What I don't like is everything about online, from netcode to items to the Pit Stop. The practice of lying about there being no micro-transactions before launch, yet adding them through updates is extremely scummy and unforgivable.

I'm doing well. Finally finished Etrian Odyssey IV after over a year of playing it. I wouldn't worry about being inactive. Video games will always be there later when you feel like it.

Funny you ask me about the cube collection of mine. I'm sure you noticed today I managed to solve the original cube in about a minute. To be honest, that was by luck and skillful speed while my average solve time was sub 80 seconds.

There are easier but much crazier puzzles in my haul I got through the mail a few weeks ago. I have cubes that go 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 in size, cubes that change shape as you scramble and twist them, and even one titled "Megaminx" or a Rubik's Dodecahedron.

Another thing in the case of video games, but still relevant to the conversation: My sister got me "Rubik's World" for the Wii last Christmas, with several Rubik's style puzzles and of course the cube itself. Watch me kill that game later on! (Heh, not really)

Glad to hear you're doing alright amidst the pandemic. No worries about being inactive; keep doing whatever feels right, and we'll be here when you get back. Happy Ring Day!

Today marks my fourth Ring Day! I am well aware that I have been inactive for a very long time; I will try to correct this soon (for real this time). I got caught up in playing a single game more competitively, and I have been feeling a little down for these last two months due to Covid-19. It has thrown a wrench into all my real-life plans, and sometimes I still find myself mulling over all the missed opportunities. But what really matters at the end of the day is that my family and I are doing fine, both in terms of health and money. I hope the same goes for the rest of you guys! Stay safe.

Just popping by saying I got your message earlier and thank you!

Honestly, I couldn't think of anything interesting to say other than that and I hate to be rude. But I understand you currently aren't active much as opposed to me where I'm on my backlog all the time, where my attention span is very quick and short unlike others... heh.

(This is also a belated response, I've been very busy. But thank you so much. It hasn't been easy to survive 10 years)

There are a few things about Ultimate that make me not like it as much as Smash for Wii U (or even 3DS).

-Not being able to run past opponents.

-That pause made by the perfect shield/parry. It sometimes feels like it's giving the parrier a free hit during that pause.

-The mechanics to standard attacks. In previous Smash games, standard attacks would push opponents a little, at the edge of the stage this can be handy to look for KOs by making opponents collide with the platform. But now they only stun opponents. That's how I used to get various KOs in Smash 4.

- Overall, the changes made to my real mains (Mario, Sonic and Pac-Man) force me to look for different strategies and some of the previous tricks don't work as well or not at all.

-I'm sorry to say this, but the online in Ultimate sucks compared to Smash for Wii U (not being able to change characters between fights, forcing you to play with rules of another player when you don't want to play with them, sometimes it can take a long time to play a match).
Not to mention, the wi-fi signal on the Switch is terrible compared to the Wii U or the 3DS. I get even more lad here than what I ever had in Brawl. How come online matches are more streamed than what I saw of Smash 4 will always be a mystery to me.

But to be fair, there are also a few things I like about it.
-The number of Spirits that keeps growing
-Having some of my favorite videogame series together in one way or another at the same time (nothing like seeing Mario, Sonic, Pac-Man, Ryu, Erdrick (DQIII Hero), Banjo-Kazooie and Cuphead fighting on Wuhu Island while Bomberman and Shovel Knight help them on the side and may or may not be powered by Lip, the Ouendan, the Elite Beat Agents, Kyle Hyde and Qbby while music from Miitopia plays).

I hope as I get better, I like it more. It'd certainly help to play with real people face-to-face.

Also, I know this is probably not the place to talk about it, but I hope the Coronavirus is not affecting you a lot over there

hehe, the site remake got announced/started not too long after I joined here, hehe! I've been looking forward to it for a long time, it's been looking really good, and I'm very excited to have it finally be done, it looks like it will be a lot of nice and appreciated upgrades!
YOOM-TAH!
