...So I think a neat idea for R.O.B. next game would be to have his alt. colors reflect all of Nintendo's systems. Blue/white for Wii, Black for N64, Game Boy Grey and Purple, and so on. Like how Brawl had SNES R.O.B.
Oh come on. This is the most ridiculous thread I've ever replied to. Amazing how it's already at...42 pages?! Christ!
What's so bad about Captain Falcon using a Falcon Punch? I'd say pretty much every character in Smash has a meme to go with them. (LANDMASTER!)
I'd also have to say that F-Zero is presented better than most franchises, considering IT'S A FUCKING RACING GAME! The F-Zero stages are fast paced RACING levels, Captain Falcon is fast because he RACES, and...aw what's the point. I've learned my lesson in dealing with purists when I tried to defend Snake when he was announced.
I don't know if what I'm spewing all over is ridiculousness but think about it though. In retrospect, in 1999 and 2001 when SSB and Melee came out, which playable characters were often used by Nintendo to advertise their franchises and which characters seem more like the ones many dedicated fans would likely recognize that the mainstream audience probably wouldn't? Fast forward to 2006 and 2008, which characters in Brawl would the mainstream audience most likely recognize and which characters in Brawl would the dedicated fans most likely recognize? I hope they are fairly reasonable questions to ask.
I haven't seen Nintendo doing anything like that with any of F-Zero characters except Captain Falcon.
Anything like the calendar? Well, there's the cover of F-Zero GX with the 4 original F-Zero characters, and Samurai Goroh also does appear in the F-Zero anime. And he was given a racer wife and child during the 2000s. I'm not a hardcore fan of F-Zero, so I can't remember anything that would resemble that artwork.
Almost nobody knows why they made Samurai Goroh an Assist Trophy instead of a playable character. But there's a reason why he of all F-Zero characters was made an Assist Trophy. He's one of the main characters in F-Zero fiction. Who knows, the same way you can theorize that the forbidden seven were going to be playable (because you don't know it; you theorize it), you can say the same about Assist Trophies and major Pokémon. And not necessarily because of their inability to fight even if it applies to a few.
Expecting Black Shadow was a "> 100 IQ" conclusion because the roster hadn't been fully revealed, Goroh had been revealed as an Assist Trophy and Black Shadow is a villain in F-Zero.
Yeah, I know about the anime and the GX cover art, but even that didn't help Samurai Goroh anyway, but at least he's an AT. Also, I like coming up with theories and ideas for the rosters even if its not the popular opinion. I go out of my way to Google search Nintendo's history and their franchises. Its fun and educational at the same time.
I'd like to see what Fry or Underwear think of this matter, because I really don't know what to say at this point...
Personally I've avoided posting anything in this thread because its been epic levels of stupid since page 1. I haven't read it recently so I don't know what knew piece of retardation has been posted, but I can say with confidence, without even reading it, that whatever argument has been put down, by whatever person it is, is retarded. And all counter arguments against it are also retarded.
The Smash Bros forum is now where sane rational arguments go to die. And as that argument dies it has defecated retardation on everything around it.
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.

Nester the Lark: The Atelier series has been on sale on the NA eShop for the first time since Spring 2020. It's tempting, but I have so many other things to play right now.

nocturnal YL: A speedrun of Atelier Rorona can take as little as 45 minutes.
Oct 2, 2021 10:14:27 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: But seriously, this series is a major time sink. Even if you don't want to spend too much time, I'd recommend playing one whole sub-series in order to understand the story. Earlier games can be played without the later ones, though.

nocturnal YL: Sophie 1 is often recommended as a starting point, since the story is interesting (for a first game) and is relatively newcomer-friendly*, while I'd say Lulua which is very polished and there are relatively few cutscenes that need knowledge in prior games.
Oct 2, 2021 10:23:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: *Which… I disagree; you can get through Firis and later even if you're not good at making items, but with Sophie you'll be stuck once you've beaten the game and gets into the DLC.
Oct 2, 2021 10:24:15 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Or you can go for Ryza 1, the popular option; just know that you'll miss out a lot of what makes Atelier Atelier if you go for that route. As for Lydie & Suelle (which got me in in the first place), it has great story but there's a bit of a learning curve.

Nester the Lark: I've got some mixed thoughts on Metroid Dread. I'll try to write up a post about it.
