Tell you what, it's been so long since I have played Smash Bros, it has been kicking my butt. I think if I can ever get used to playing on the pro controller, I will be ok.

I forgot to reply to this, but yes, I had tried calibration and it pretty much just highlighted the problem - a non-consistent drift to the left. Sometimes you can click in every direction and it'll snap right back to center, and then suddenly it'll just start moving to the left on its own. I just tried taking the controller apart and cleaning it, but I won't be able to test it until later. There was a surprising amount of cat hair inside the controller.

Picked up New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. About what I expected as Iíve played games from the series before but still pretty fun. Nice having another new-ish (new to me) Mario game on Switch.

I feel the same way. Never owned the WiiU so these repeat games are a blast.

I'm enjoying it too as someone who never had a Wii U. I've always liked the side scrolling Mario games quite a bit over the 3D ones.

I'm waiting for a sale on this one. It might be a while but I don't feel the need to rush out and buy a 5 year old game at full price. Got enough to play for the time being. I'll get it sometime in 2019 though.

As much as I enjoyed the base game on the Wii U, the real gem of this package is the Luigi DLC which is probably my favorite of all the New Super Mario Bros. games.
