I am very leery of getting the game on time.  I have everything sent to my office and it also seems to take longer for mail to arrive in Nowheresville.

No worries there.

I am bummed there will not be a stage editor.  My favorite was a simple design:  


|                         |
|                         |
|                         |
     --------------
|                         |
|                         |
|                         |
--------------------------

There was lava on the side walls and you could end up in quite the loop getting knocked back and forth.  The walls were solid as well, with gaps only at the very top.

Iím down to play with anyone

One thing I havenít heard or read about with the game is exactly how the characters get unlocked. They mentioned the story mode but I really hope thereís alternative methods. With such a huge roster and only starting with 8, itíd be great if you had to explore the whole game to get everyone. For example competing certain characterís classic modes on a specific difficulty, beating break the targets, completing certain events in spirits mode. Things of that sort. Unlocking characters and stages was so much fun in 64 and melee. Brawl was all about the sub space mode and in smash 4 you started with basically everyone. Would be nice to go back to the roots

Aren't all characters available from the get go? Or do you mean the story mode?EDIT: Ah sorry, seems 8 are available from the start, rest needs to be unlocked.

Sorry but I'll probably won't be available to play online. Atm I have really snowty connection with Switch.

EDIT: Well, that was totally unexpected: first Smash dlc. It makes sense for various reasons (series overall popularity, some Nintendo shenanigans like probable Persona 5 for Switch etc), but it's bound to make fans rage. Nobody expected this, I would say even Piranha Plant was probably more likely to happen in their predictions, while there are at least a dozen characters people are waiting for. Unfortunately for them, this confirms their fears. Nintendo decides which characters will be in dlc's so that probably means at least one other dlc will contain a character from new Fire Emblem game and probably some other crossovers like Crash (although this one is kinda requested). I think we can now expect characters like Sora from KH, Luffy from One Piece and Goku Whatever the case new characters will probably be random, rather then requested... which isn't an issue for me as I'm not even a fan of Smash and Nintendo, but gaming in general

That said it gives an interesting potential for the content: a Midgar-style map with various Persona hazards that can be activated and a final smash that will probably take something from an "All-out attack"... plus the soundtrack for Persona 5 is really cool.

Do you guys like the Switch?

I have been a Playstation-guy for a long time, but recently I'm finding it really hard to get excited about new games. (Guess I'm getting old.)
I have also owned Nintendo consoles. (N64 is my favorite console of all time.)
I love the Zelda series, so I would probably love Breath of the Wild...
Wondering if I should just forget about PS4 and start a new adventure with Switch...

Why not both? I enjoy playing Switch games from time to time just like I enjoy playing, for instance, Read Dead Redemption 2 on PS4. Not to mention I play PC games on regular basis. I never understood why people draw fictional lines comparing consoles and elevating their superiority over another...

Depends on what you actually want from it:
1. It does have its share of unique exclusives. Nintendo games are specific. Some say their for kids. I think they have this unique nostalgic flavor to them. I feel like a kid again playing them, but but not in a bad way. I think those simply give you the purest fun you can have with games. Plus they're really polished. One thing is for certain, you won't find these games on any other platform.
2. Ideal platform for indie games. Not my cup of cake, but because many indie games resemble Gameboy games, Switch is ideal platform for them.
3. The best is yet to come. Pokemon, Metroid 4, FE: Three Houses, Animal Crossing are certainly huge games.

I think it's just a great device to have around, even if you're not planning to play it non-stop. I treat it as a casual platform, I pick it up from time to time. Ofc after I'll pick up Smash I'll probably will be playing it a lot. The game is chock-full of content. One guy gave a cool example: there are 74 characters to play, so if you give each of them a 20 minute run, it would take you 24h to play each of them in one go

Thanks blob.
Yeah I am quite the nostalgic gamer myself, I have revisited those N64 gems many times and I still love Heroes 3 so...
For my Switch wishlist I would have Zelda, Metroid, Super Mario Odessey, Mario Kart, Smash Bros., Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and hopefully more.

People are reporting some kind of lag in controller responses. It seems to be deliberate, but they say it feels "different" and hope for a patch. That ofc does not put me off in any way. I never even seriously played Smash aside from a demo on 3DS, not to mention playing it competitively...

I've simply lost my touch.

The World of Light single player mode can be a bit of a slog.  One match had me dealing with:

The AI gets supportive assist trophies.
All weapon items do more damage.
The AI starts with a Super Shot.
The AI gets 2 reinforcements after 10 seconds, who also start with ranged weapons.

It's awful.  Simply awful.  Even worse?  Your opponents are inklings, who's ink causes you to take more damage.  I quit.  I don't know if I need to grind up or what but that particular fight is pure garbage.

Is this battle required? Or can you skip it?

The problem with Smash is that because there are so many good players, they probably needed to raise the difficulty level, or those same people would be salty. I might have an even bigger problem, cus imma a complete noob in this game. Well, I've watched a few clips and it appears most player clear the battles with a well placed, if not simply lucky, KO. Or maybe for the Inkling battle you need a specific Spirit? There might be some that can protect you against inkling paint?

The battle is to win a Legendary spirit, so it's a bit tougher than normal.  It's not required that I can tell.  I'm not sure what, if any spirits, can counter the horrible imposed conditions.  

I'm all for buffing the AI.  I'm not all up for making the AI cheaper.  Another fight was a stamina battle against the Villager and Ness.  Even with buffs, I had 120 starting health.  Villager had 100 and Ness had 80.  Certainly doable... except both characters regenerated health throughout the match.  It was almost as bad as the aforementioned challenge.  What did I get for my trouble?  Some lame spirit that I can't do much with.

If they're optional that's good I think.

Well it's too early for me to tell as I didn't play the game, but despite how people seem to criticize World of Light overall I think it's good gameplay wise. It's a fighting game, a long, challenging at times grind is the best you can put into such a game. You don't exactly focus on story in fighting games...
