Feeling a little nostalgic before bed, I fired up the Switch while I did some work. Sitting on the home page was Mario Tennis Aces, a game I'd gotten deeply hooked on for a little while.
It'd been months since I'd checked in with the game; I hadn't tried the new DLC characters, the singleplayer challenges, or given online doubles a crack. So I fired up the online mode, and let matchmaking do its thing.
After half an hour, one article written and a drink down, Mario Tennis was still searching. I wasn't getting a game on the court. There was no-one to be found.
