They went to Walmart to get a lot of cat litter, some Georgia Peach Coca-Cola which they haven't tried, and pretezel cinnamon sugar pop-tarts. Stephen says that he loves pretezels and it would be fun to eat these pop-tarts on Breakfast Stream. It is Sunday, so they are grabbing lunch with Dan and Lindsey at Firehouse Subs.
Mallory has been asking Stephen to get Ring Fit Adventure on the Nintendo Switch ever since it was released. Stephen had been waiting for the price to fall, but it never did. He thought the price would fall quickly like it did with Nintendo Labo. The price never fell, so he decides that they will be picking up the game at a GameStop today. Mal has seen a part of the game from watching Tom Fawkes's stream. Stephen also watched the stream, but he wasn't paying attention, so he doesn't know anything about it.
At home, Stephen opens up the Ring Fit Adventure box which contains the game and the ring-con. Mal didn't have time to play it tonight, so she thought she would be able to play it tomorrow. But, they checked their list of appointments and realized that Mal had a follow-up appointment at the ENT tomorrow. Stephen thought it was odd that the doctor never called them since most doctors call you to remind you about an appointment. He says that they will call the doctor's office tomorrow just to make sure that the appointment is still happening.
Today, they needed to record Super Smash Bros: Ultimate. They are returning back to the series and playing the Co-Op Classic Mode. Stephen mentions that they had also done this for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and the viewers really enjoyed it. He says that it was an interesting series because each one is a standalone video, so it's not needed to watch all the videos in order. Stephen says that people might want to watch them in order to understand some reoccurring jokes in the series. Then, he talks about how the Co-Op Classic Mode was redone for Super Smash Bros: Ultimate and it sped it up. Stephen says that the redone Co-Op Classic Mode feels closer to Super Smash Bros. There are only a few rounds for each character and it takes about 12 minutes in total to complete all the rounds. Twelve minutes is less than half of the normal episode length on StephenPlays, so he had originally planned to do more of them at a time. But, after talking to Chaz he realized that it would probably be in his best interest to release only one episode 3 times per week like he would release episodes for a regular Let's Play. The episodes will be easier to produce since they are shorter which will give him time to work on some older projects.
He will increase the amount of videos released for Super Smash Bros: Ultimate if he progresses on some of his other projects. Stephen says that he doesn't like keeping games on the channel for long amounts of time and he had been thinking about this issue a lot over the last few months. Particularly, he had thought about Red Dead Redemption 2 which was on the channel for almost a year. Stephen would like to avoid keeping games on the channel for a long time, but he also has to consider that he is still behind on a lot of work. So, it would be best for him to keep Super Smash Bros: Ultimate on the channel for a while since it's easy to record and this will give him more time to work on other stuff. Stephen says that it was fun playing Super Smash Bros: Ultimate tonight since he hasn't played in a bit. He has played it from time to time when new DLC is released, so he's been practicing a little bit. On the other hand, Mal only plays when their friends come over and want to play Smash. They had also been playing Super Smash Bros: Ultimate for some videos for Tom Fawkes's channel. Stephen says that the game is always harder than he thinks.
Kepler pooped earlier when he got out of the litter box he started quickly running throughout the house multiple times and then finally running up the cat tree. Stephen describes it as the "after poop crazies". He says that Sagan does it as well, but not as often as Kepler does. Then, he talks about how he hopes he has time to go get a haircut tomorrow. Stephen's hair is all over the place and it's bothering. He won't be singing a song though because he already has too much work to do.
