    I'd be down with Nintendo going crossover crazy and releasing Untitled Hyrule Game.

    And we're free to disagree over what is or isn't disappointing. 
     
    But I think, with Smash, we have to be realistic: people are always going to be disappointed by Smash snubs. 
     
    I can already envision a character who will cause disappointment during Fighter Pass 2: Rayman. Rayman was noticeable absent from the Ubisoft Mii Fighter costumes, and I've seen a few folks online hoping this means he makes the cut as a future DLC character. If he doesn't show up, those people are going to be disappointed. If he does, I'm sure there will be plenty of people who don't think Rayman deserves the slot. 
     
    Not everyone can make Smash. There are six DLC slots; but dozens upon dozens of excellent video game characters. It is inevitable that many favorites won't make the cut.

    On top of all that, as if by coincidence, Sega Ages Puyo Puyo Tsu drops on the Nintendo Switch in Japan on January 16. 
     
    That might not actually mean anything. Just an interesting tidbit regarding the date.

    The articles I've seen on it so far indicate its $30 per expansion pack, meaning if you want it for both Sword and Shield, you'd be paying for it twice.

    First, we have made it to 2020. Congratulations! Another year down! 
     
    We beat about 358 games this year. This figure includes multiple paths, such as playing through various houses in Fire Emblem Three Houses. 
     
    About one in three of those games were beaten by Eliwood8, while just under a quarter were beaten by XLW. ArmoredFrog's New Years Eve post takes the #3 spot. 
     
    If folks want to continue cataloging into 2020, that sounds like a plan. I can create a new post, or is anyone else interested in hosting duties?

    Many thanks, @Doc Brown! Coffee mugs are always appreciated, and it will be put to good use. Blacker than a moonless night, hotter and more bitter than hell itself… that is coffee!
     
    I've been meaning to get Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for awhile now, but kept putting it off for reasons. Starlink is a neat addition, and I'm interested to see just what they did with Star Fox in that game. Somebody else has already gotten into the candy. Prior to photographing it, even.

    Because it's a movable feast based on a lunisolar calendar. Controversy over the proper date for Easter dates back to the second century (I'm not even joking, Pope Victor I attempted to excommunicate the Quartodecimans over this), and remains unresolved, with modern reformers calling for a fixed date for Easter.

    Typically, though there are four different dates used by different Christian groups to mark the holiday; the others being January 6, January 7 and January 19. 
     
    Part of this is because certain denominations mark Christmas using the old Julian calendar date, rather than the modern Gregorian calendar.

    In general, you can just replace the words "hot take" with "this is bait." 
     
    By definition, hot takes are deliberately provocative statements intended to incite an angry response. The term originated on sports talk radio, on which hosts would use hot takes to get angry listeners to call in. 
     
    It has since spread beyond radio, but the goal remains the same. A hot take isn't seeking a conversation, it's seeking a reaction.

    I can understand this, given "hot take" is still a fairly new phrase: we're talking about a phrase the came to prominence because of Tebowing. 
     
    The definitions of neologisms can be a little flexible. I'm sure we all use the term a little differently. Given winterberry's response, it looks like we likely have at least three definitions of the term in this very thread, all likely informed by our interaction with the phrase.
