All about Spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Spirits are one of the most unique (and most unbalanced) components of amiibo training in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They’re kind of like power boosts for your Figure Players; using Spirits, you can increase their attack strength, decrease the amount of damage they take, and let them inherit special bonus effects that come with a wide variety of powers. And they can be a bit overwhelming to new trainers — understandably so! It’s time to talk all about Spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

Pokémon Sword & Shield – A Step in the Wrong Direction

When Pokémon Sword & Shield were first announced, I was excited – I’ve been a fan of the Pokémon series for years, after all – but as we know, Sword & Shield have been the subject of scrutiny for some time nowI’ve played Pokémon Sword for 800 hours, give or take, and I think it’s finally time for me to write out my complete thoughts on the entirety of the game. And believe me, we are going to be covering all of it.

Most players have already formed an opinion on Sword & Shield, and most of them are understandably negative. If you’re somehow still on the fence regarding these games, my goal is to change that. Buckle up and put on your reading glasses, because today’s review is going to be our longest yet. Let’s get started!

What does “hard-coded” mean, anyway?

If you’ve read much of our amiibo content on-site, you’ve probably heard the word “hard-coded” a lot. It’s a really important word to know, too. The short definition of hard-coded is “a behavior you can’t change”. We’ll go into a bit more detail in just a moment, but for now, know that if we say a behavior is hard-coded, it means that you can’t fix it with any amount of training. There are hard-coded behaviors in both Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but for this post, we’re going to be talking about the relevant game (Ultimate, though some might argue otherwise).

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – Rupee Farming Guide

It goes without saying that rupees are really important in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, especially when you’ve beaten the game and are trying to raise all of your fighters to their max level of 100.
