Been playing the game


Snake Park has to be the worst level to ever be allowed in a game's ranked mode ever. It's god awful

Rest of the game has been pretty fun. . .but not that.

Slightly worried about the game's defensive options, but the rest is pretty cool. The game is pretty much just neutral (which I love) and sniping people over and over haha.

Its not even funny how poorly balanced Snakepark is...

Either I dominate my opponent, get dominated, or we spend the entire match never landing anything...

And for your sole appreciation, they drove Snake Park out of the ranked matches! :D

This Hedlok mode is really fun. Same goes for Max Brass.

Great update. Curious who the next character now that we are going blind this time.

I still don't really feel any urge to buy it, but if people are enjoying it, that's cool. Its gameplay just doesn't seem that interesting to me.

Looking forward to seeing the future characters though. Max Brass was cool. Lola Pop is ok.

Helix used to be my favorite but Lola Pop is definitely going to be my new main.

Chances are we'll get our first look at her in the Testpunch this week-end. I'm a bit on the edge when it comes to replaying it because none of the play coins we'll collect will be carried over to the full game, but heh. I like this game, I like playing with actual people, I like the cutesy little hub with all the icons floating around, so all that matters is to have fun ^.^

I do enjoy the game! But I'm still not sure how I should be playing, or what I should do to play better.
Well, what areas do you feel to be lacking in?

Oh hey, this thread exists, that's cool.

I wish the rankings on the ARMS website listed rankings by country, and not just the top 200 worldwide. I want to know if I'm the top-ranked player in Ireland yet. :p I'm only rank 16 yet, so probably not, but I'm getting there slowly.

As an aside, if anyone wants to play games but is frustrated by how long it takes for anyone to show up in ranked matches, and doesn't care too much about the party modes, I'm always up to play. My Switch friend code is SW-8320-4989-1014 if anyone wants to add me.

Is there a problem finding ranked matches?

From what I understand it's still easy to find them.

Maybe it depends on what part of the world you're in? At least over here, it takes a while for anyone to show up for me. Though sometimes I can get lucky and barely have a few seconds of waiting between matches. It can be very hit or miss from my experience.

:p

I don't know how popular the game is across Europe. I know some of the top-ranked players worldwide are, and I've played against a few of them by now, but overall I do find it hard to find matches, and I haven't heard of many other people in Ireland specifically playing it. Maybe I'm just really unlucky, I don't know.

Oops, I hadn't logged in for a long time, sorry to miss your reply.

I think that maybe I haven't played the game enough against human players to really know! I can barely beat the one player Grand Prix on difficulty 4 (enough to see the true final boss) and maybe the difficulty I'm having there is more to do with difficult AI than to do with how am I playing the game and the strategy I'm using.

I'm probably just at a point where I'm still playing with different characters and weapon sets to see what I like.

The upcoming version 3 update of ARMS will allow you to remap the controls.
Good because I don't like using the left stick button to block.

Aw cmon. Lola Pop is great.
W-wait holyyyyyy!! I just looked this up... Is this an ACTUAL Lanky Kong reference? Or is she not?

I'll admit I never game ARMS much attention, not owning a Switch and all... But this is pretty cool.

Might not be an intentional reference, but they are pretty similar aren't they?

Lanky Kong is gonna be in Smash as an Arms rep instead of a DK rep. E3 2018 smash is announced and the joke character to replace wii fit trainer is the funny face himself.

Its gonna happen.

Now that the Switch allows GameCube controllers, I decided to give this game a shot with the controller.

It's actually feels real good.

But I strongly suggest you remap the controls for best results, especially that it's impossible to guard with default controls.

And sadly you can't change your character's color with this controller.

I'm BAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!
Since that teaser for the anticipated Switch game, I've returned here with my Smash spirits back!
Anyway...
If Palutena's Guidance ever returns in Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo Switch, this is what I'd like to see and hear:

upload_2018-3-25_11-23-43.png

Who is THAT?!
upload_2018-3-25_11-24-19.png

I have no data on this fighter. I can't believe it!
upload_2018-3-25_11-24-44.png

I have data!

upload_2018-3-25_11-26-55.png

Whoa! Another intruder?!
upload_2018-3-25_11-27-23.png

What are YOU, some kind of chew toy?
upload_2018-3-25_11-28-8.png

I was asked the same thing one time...

upload_2018-3-25_11-30-2.png

Anyway, I'm Biff, your trusty Arms commentator!
upload_2018-3-25_11-30-47.png

"Arms"? Never heard of an "Arms" commentator.
upload_2018-3-25_11-31-17.png

What?! You never heard of Arms?!

upload_2018-3-25_11-32-56.png

Of COURSE we do! We need them to throw punches!
upload_2018-3-25_11-33-39.png

No, Arms as in the unique fighting sport! It's where contestants fight their opponents from many feet away.
upload_2018-3-25_11-35-7.png

This is Spring Man, one of the great fighters of the Arms Grand Prix.

upload_2018-3-25_11-36-5.png

He sure lives up to his name with those springy limbs.
upload_2018-3-25_11-37-4.png

Better get jumpy on this guy! His fists both have a long range of attack that'll bonk you away if you're not careful.
upload_2018-3-25_11-38-4.png

I guess this means you'll have less room to evade his punches.

upload_2018-3-25_11-39-5.png

Maybe you can reach, I mean, teach me and my minions a thing or two about long-ranged boxing.
upload_2018-3-25_11-40-22.png

We'll see... By the way, did I mention that Spring Man's Arms don't extend as easily as in Arms?
upload_2018-3-25_11-42-8.png

Well, I gotta spring outta here and commentate on the upcoming Grand Prix! See ya!
