Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a great game and fairly well-balanced, but the online multiplayer is quite flawed, with inaccurate matchmaking and NO DEDICATED SERVER, which means that you might have to rely on someone's crappy internet, or you could be ruining someone else's experience, no offense, and this is the exact same thing we had in Smash 4, but this time we're paying money for Nintendo Switch Online.
However, that's not the only issue we're facing. The fact that there are significantly less controller options in Smash Ultimate than Smash 4 proves that Smash Ultimate is facing a lot more issues than we expected.
Smash 4 had a choice of 14 different first-party controller options, and they each were quite unique. Smash Ultimate has a choice of 3 which are very similar to each other. See how much has decreased? Even the Nintendo Entertainment System Controller for the Switch couldn't be used properly in Smash Ultimate! Take away the six 3DS models and you STILL have almost 4x the controllers on Smash 4 than Ultimate.
Not only do you have to stick with the offset analog stick layout, instead of using their preferred styles, but you've pretty much wasted money on potentially 93% of the controllers you had! This is talking about the controllers you also carried over from Brawl. All of that goes to waste when you realize that the Wii and Wii U controllers aren't compatible with the Nintendo Switch, unless you get 3rd-party adapters.
What are your thoughts about this? Do you miss using the Wii Classic Controller Pro? Do you miss using that Wii U Pro Controller?
There were times where I thought this type of merging would've been rather impossible or it would take a long time, and you would typically laugh it off if someone said that they're confident.....now I think it's time you stop laughing, because Zelda Wiki and Zeldapedia are closer to merging than before.
Back in 2007, the co-creator of Wikia offered the owner of Zelda Wiki to merge that wiki with Zeldapedia. Given that there were some issues regarding to ownership, Zelda Wiki declined.
Ever since then, the wikis' rivalry intensified, and now I can say that both have been quiet ever since the heat for BotW died down.
However, the whole rivalry may end. Brandon Rhea of Fandom presents this blog.
Fandom and Cursed Media (the company that owns Gamepedia, where Zelda Wiki is) are merging, and although there aren't any details yet, I'm going to predict that it's going to involve some massive Wikia/Gamepedia merges. In that case, Zelda Wiki and Zeldapedia may become one, as requested 11 years ago.
What do you think? How will Zeldapedia fare in the future with this merger?
When you're inside the Divine Beasts, after activating the first terminal, ever notice what some of them sound like?
Ruta almost sounds like Fort Francis from Super Paper Mario
The last bit of the Rudania song sounds like the Song of Time from Ocarina of Time. (Also the "Attacking Rudania" song sounds like Lanayru Mining Facility from Skyward Sword)
Medoh sounds a bit like the first phase of the Morpheel and Argorok battles in Twilight Princess.
Naboris, well, it just sounds kinda like Gerudo Town.
A lot of us here love the Nintendo Switch. It's a bridge between the Home and Handheld console worlds, and it stands up well against Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One. However, there seems to be an issue with the Nintendo Switch, and I think by now a lot of people may agree with me.
Are you spending a little too much money to have a good experience?
Buying a Switch only costs $300 USD. Doesn't seem too bad right? There's an issue with that price however. The Switch has 32 GB of internal storage, can run up to 1080p HD, and has limited features, not to mention a controller that isn't entirely ergonomic. At the same price, you could buy an Xbox One S, with 1 TB of internal storage, can run up to 2160p HD (4K) in media, and has a more ergonomic controller.
Not reconsidering? The Nintendo Switch Game Cards can only hold up to 32 GB max, and some games try an exceed that by either having an entirely separate game OR extra download, sometimes more than 32 GB worth of download, which would ask a person to buy a microSD Card in order to actually play a game. Compare all that to the Blu-Ray Discs used in Xbox Ones, which hold drastically more. With 1 TB of storage, and a large amount of space on the disc, expanding your storage isn't necessary.
STILL not reconsidering? Removable storage is another issue. Using USB Devices for expandable storage is a lot easier than using microSD Cards. Why? Because the amount is larger. The Nintendo Switch supports up to 2 TB of removable storage. Seems fair, and the games are fairly small. What's the problem? 2 TB microSD's ARE NOT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE! Fine, let's go to 1 TB.....wait wrong type....fine let's go down to 512 GB...geez. 2 TB is easy for USB devices. 2 TB is hard for microSD's.
Stubborn? Want to be like a professional gamer and use a headset? For an Xbox One, all you really need is a headset with a mic. For a Nintendo Switch, here's what you gotta do:
Buy a mobile device. That could cost any price, cheap or expensive. More expensive prices are preferable because of quality. Download the Nintendo Switch Online app. Then buy a sound splitter, preferably the 2nd-party Hori one. Then you buy a headset. What kind of idea is this? Seriously, why can't the Switch just support voice chat via USB device? Fortnite does, but why not any other game?
VERY stubborn? You go to the store to get an awesome setup for Smash Ultimate. You buy that GameCube Controller. You buy that GameCube Controller Adapter. You then realize that you wasted money for it because the GameCube Controller is only (realistically) compatible with Smash, and other games program it as a Pro Controller.
Too stubborn? You buy Splatoon 2. Want to play offline? Sure....only for like a couple of hours before the single-player is done. DLC? Sure, still a couple of hours. Want to play MP? Too bad. You need NSO. Buy it, and you gain access to the majority of the game's content and features. Does Microsoft have 1st-party games like this? No, and that's an issue. Pay-to-Play seems like something you would expect Nintendo to not do. What do they do with NSO? Have a game that falls close to the front of the Pay-to-Play spectrum.
OK....I can stop hating on the Switch, but that doesn't mean that you're spending a little too much money on the Switch. I love it, but because of all these transactions, I can't really classify this as cheap anymore. Really, it's fallen in front of Microsoft in terms of pricing.
What are your thoughts? Do you think we're spending a little too much for the Switch?
Check out Zeldapedia's Discord server! Because the wiki's Live Chat system isn't fully accessible and never active, we use Discord as an alternative.
This is a great way to talk in real-time. If you're planning to chat, the server is the ideal way for that. No need to keep refreshing those Discussion posts!

Now a lot of you have probably figured this out already and might think I'm a moron for not getting it
But I always found a mountain to Paraglide from over to that shrine on a hill surrounded by thorns. Well, on my seventh playthrough, I only just realized you can burn them with Fire Arrows and get in a lot easier.
Has anyone else taken this long to realize or am I just stupid? (I might not even be saying this if I hadn't seen videos of people trying to use Stasis on the Zora's Domain shrine instead of Cryonis the whole way)
