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

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.
of course

valve didn't want child-killing in half-life 2, so the lack of children was woven into the plot, so it's not like there are no creative solutions to these problems

that said, i can't say i personally have an issue with it, at least no more than i have with any other rockstar game

i've already decided years and years ago that i'm not terribly interested in games like grand theft auto, or saint's row, where the whole appeal is to be a murderer or a raving lunatic, because it's always been pretty senseless to me and i never understood how people were able to derive any sort of entertainment out of it

still, it's easy enough for me to just not play those games, because they're not for me, but if anyone looks at a game like this and says "this should not exist," i can totally understand why they would feel that way and there's no real argument against it

i choose to have that attitude about sexual content more than i do with violent content

Because these are things that make sense in an open world game that gives you player choice?

You can kill pretty much anybody in this game. Why would they prohibit you just because it's a woman or beggar? They're not actively encouraging it and you get punished for doing it so I don't see how you can put that on the developers.

Also that pedo thing was clearly a moral choice. They're not encouraging the player to leave the kid and you can clearly tell the right thing to do is to free the kid.

Just because some bad choices exist in the game doesn't mean the developers condone them. It's all about player choice. Imagine a game where the only thing you're allowed to do is pet kittens and feed the homeless.
the question being asked is why would anyone want to play a game with these moral choices in the first place

what is gained from it

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
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

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?
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

Due to some setbacks I probably won’t get it until Christmas, maybe after
let me guess you asked your mother and she was like "i can get it for you for christmas"

and you were like "no mom" but you couldn't think of anything else that you wanted

well yeah i'm basically this website's lifeblood after all
So serious question, what happened to muppets like Challenger and Das?
challenger still posts about as often as i do, and runs the discord

das doesn't post as much these days, but he still lurks pretty much all the time
What happened to the mods?
a few of them migrated over to bungle (that MLP offsite which gets more activity)
a few of them just disappeared without a word, probably losing interest

flee still posts, LC lurks occasionally
