Went to a party and played with a few friends/strangers; my god the entire cast feels so polished. Every character I got to try feels so polished and intuitive. I don’t know for certain but it feels like the inputs are less delayed than S4, too.

Also one of the guys was grinding for near 12 hours straight and unlocked the entire cast before switching setups with the one we were using for free-for-alls. What a trooper.

Just bought a Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Smash because I'm flying to Texas in a few days.

What should I have as a goal for this game? Like, how do I unlock new stuff? Anything I should try to aim for?

Also, the standard controller will do fine, right? It's not a pro one but I assume the things that come with the Switch will be servicable for Mario Kart and Smash, at least for some casual play

And what's the battery life on this thing? Can I charge it from a powerbank with USB? It's entirely handheld, right, but then comes with a dock you connect to a TV with HDMI?

playing any of the major single player modes (classic, vs. matches, world of light) will unlock you characters

vs. matches is the fastest but most boring, because you unlock a character for every match you play in a set order, but there's a 10 minute cooldown for each one (this timer can be reset by resetting the game itself or changing the game's language)

classic allows you to have a little bit more fun, but is much slower

haven't delved into the game's story mode at all yet, so i'm not sure about that one

in terms of what you should "aim" for, are there any characters you want to play in particular? i can tell you the fastest way to unlock them

Also, the standard controller will do fine, right? It's not a pro one but I assume the things that come with the Switch will be servicable for Mario Kart and Smash, at least for some casual play
i assume by standard controller, you mean the joycons

yeah, they do the job, i personally prefer the gamecube controller because of familiarity

I don't even know. I liked Samus and Fox in the original one but haven't really played since.

What are good characters in different styles?

And what about my other questions?

can't answer the others since i always play with the AC adaptor plugged in no matter what, but to give a rough estimate, i would say the battery life is anywhere from 2-3 hours, so not a whole lot

for characters, anyone with a sword is an all-around good pick, particularly marth roy lucina or chrom

simon and richter are looking like the best zoners in the game

sheik, fox, and falco are looking pretty good if you like combo-heavy rushdown characters, but their speed makes them technical and difficult

king k. rool is the most busted heavyweight in the game right now, because his kit has just about everything you could want in a character

pokemon trainer is back, of course, with the three-characters-in-one gimmick, and all three of them seem very strong this time around, plus he's fun to use

the amazing thing about smash is that every character manages to carve their own niche, despite the fact that there are so many, so i can tell you who's a good defensive character or offensive character, but that will tell you very little about how they actually play, since everyone has their own unique gameplan for the most part

personally i play jigglypuff because i love camping and poking at you at a safe distance while floating away, and since i have multiple jumps, if you make a mistake, i can basically carry you all the way to the blastzone with my aerials

Alright, I'll probably give one of the sword guys a try first then.

Is the screen 60hz to match the 60fps of some games? I assume so but can't find info on this anywhere.

I'm in a pickle. I enjoy playing, but I end up fighting people who absolutely push my shit in and it just isn't fun.

My desire to learn to get better is often countered by me getting super flustered and frustrated at how slow I learn and how poorly I perform. Maybe I'm just super autistic with this shit and should give up because it really isn't for me. I dunnoooo.

Say I want Marth and Mewtwo to play with, how would I unlock them best?

Say I want Marth and Mewtwo to play with, how would I unlock them best?
short answer:
for Marth, beat Classic mode with Yoshi twice (or with Lucario once), OR do seven Vs. matches
for Mewtwo, beat Classic mode with Fox eight times (or with Wolf once), OR do over seventy Vs. matches
or find them both in story mode, which i can't help you with

long answer:

character unlocks via Classic mode appear to be based on a table which groups unlockables with the characters on the initial roster

for example, beating Classic mode once with Mario will unlock Sonic; from there, you can beat it again with Sonic to unlock Bayonetta, OR you can beat it with Mario a second time to unlock the same character

this process can be repeated for a total of seven or eight unlockable characters per group, and the last of which for this group in particular (which we'll call Group A) is Captain Olimar

therefore, to unlock a desired character in Group A, you must repeatedly beat Classic mode a number of times corresponding to the character's placement in the group (because they're in a set order) WITH a character in that group

Mewtwo is the eighth character in Group G (Fox's group), meaning you must have already unlocked the seven other preceding characters in the group first before you're able to unlock him

these characters are, in order: Captain Falcon, Zero Suit Samus, Peach, Falco, Daisy, Bowser Jr, and Wolf

once all of these characters have been unlocked, and assuming IGN isn't lying to me, Mewtwo is guaranteed to be the next one, so long as you beat the mode using one of those characters (including Fox)

the game is designed in such a way that you can get all the characters within a couple hours if you really wanted, but getting specific characters you want can be a pain in the ass

I've got the same problem with games in general as you've seen. But what should help with this game is that character guides should be coming out pretty rapidly, which have certainly hellped me get a foothold on slightly decent play.
I especially recommend ESAM and ZeRo's videos to start with.

Getting flustered is part of the game my guys, you can’t expect to jump right in and have anime levels of thinking clarity just because you can watch vods and understand every interaction. Coming up with an answer to their mixups is naturally hard under pressure.

I'm also going to try Falco. Apparently he's got crazy potential and I can dig that.

What's the best way to control this thing? You use the thumbstick for jumps or the jump button?

buttons are optimal for jumping, and you'll actually want to head over to the controller options to disable stick jump all together, because it only makes it more difficult to perform up-tilts and up-airs without accidentally jumping

also, if you're gonna learn falco, who has the highest jump in the game, it's gonna be very important for you to know how to short hop, and fortunately, there's a new feature which makes that easier than ever (and a bit more fun, i might add)

hitting the jump + normal attack buttons simultaneously (while tilting the stick for the desired aerial, as normal) will allow you to perform short hop aerials, a fairly indispensable technique that will give you an edge in neutral

practice short hop aerials out of shield (OoS) in situations where your opponent is on your ass, or short hop up-airs if your opponent is on a platform above you and is looking vulnerable

without this technique, falco's high-ass jumps will make it extremely difficult for you to hit your mark in any situation, and being high up in the air is a disadvantageous state in general

I understood like half of that but I'll keep the short hopping in mind, thanks.

Sticks sensitivity high and special attack thing on, I suppose?

Switch is looking good so far. Screen's a bit smaller than I expected though, but not a big deal.
