Another Test Punch for ARMS but this time it looks like it is across the whole of the weekend and not just random hours.

Anyone happen to know if the Nintendo Switch tour is giving out any freebies or anything?
Yes, been thinking about getting ARMS. This might help decide either way. Splatoon 2 is lacking on different maps at the moment.

I joined in with the last Testpunch and really enjoyed it. Putting off until i've finished Zelda and the backlog!

I got the game on launch. Didn't like it. Not bad. Wouldn't pay more than £20.

I had the same problem when I first got it, I was terrible and I got smacked and thrown around the ring repeatedly, even in the "just for fun" online matches. I'm not exactly heavyweight champion of the world now, but at least I got far enough to beat CPU lvl 4 for ranked online, and I can win around as many online matches as I lose.

The hardest thing to learn is to STOP PUNCHING! That's harder than it sounds when you're playing with motion controls. The game is called Arms but it's really about using your legs and your head. You only punch when you know you're going to hit and you know you won't get hit back. Once you get used to not punching you realise how much time there is for dodging and blocking and charging up your Arms, and you get used to which arms work at a distance or up close, which ones you dodge away from and which you can step inside the reach of etc etc. Then you get used to the different functions of the Arms, pick a favourite and go forth & own!

Not sure it would all click in a 1 hr session but sure have a go at the Test Punch and switch controllers (ie if you played motion before, play standard or vice versa) - the controls for both methods have certain quirks and switching it up forces you to change how you play. The fixed standard controller makes blocking and curving punches accurately difficult, so you have to focus on either your movement or accurate straight punches. The motion controls can affect your movement under pressure since you need to tilt both hands in the same direction, which is kind of weird especially immediately after a curved punch so you need to focus more on blocking and slapping away throws. Either way, you end up focussing on critical parts of your basic play, it's good for honing your instincts!

It's a good game. I'm not sure it's full price good, especially if you're playing single player, but it's a lot of fun and not a bad work out if you don't mind looking like an absolute tool in your front room.
I traded this is to get Splatoon 2, it was fun for an hour but after that i found it a very boring game.
