Ever feel that the latest game in a franchise added something new in it that was completely pointless because something like it already exists in the franchise?
Let me give you an example. You know those warp block in Super Mario 3D Land? They do the exact same thing as Warp Pipes, so why do they exist? You jump into them and they warp you to another part of the level! Why didn't they just have them all be Warp Pipes?
So yeah post something in a game you felt was pointless because there was something already established that serves the same role.
Oh and refrain from using characters as examples. We don't want to start a fight here.
I always thought it was kind of dumb that Goldeen was a Pokeball Pokemon in Smash Bros and when she comes out she uses Splash...that's Magikarp's attack. Why is Goldeen using it? You can't explain that.

Being cheap as hell ofcourse! Screw your super potions, time to spam the lemonade machine!
I found the move Frustration to be pretty worthless tho. I mean I get that it's the opposite of Return basing the power on a Pokemon's unhappiness rather than happiness, but Pokemon get happier by battling or just walking around with 'em. Why would you ever choose Frustration over return?
Yeahyeah limited TMs and tourney nonsense, but G5 TMs have no limit anymore so now they're truly worthless
FUCCCCCCCCKKKKKK, All those wasted Pokebuck's down the drain . . .
Leaves and goes to Celadon Casino . . .
Another Smash Bros one, why do we have the raygun item and not the NES Zapper? Come on, there's the bloody Super Scope in the game so they can't pull any bullshit about it. (We even had the Wii Zapper, so Nintendo is obviously still has the name).
The "coin" item in Super Mario Kart, "here player, have some free coins! Even though there's plenty on the track!" then you get bumped by another kart and lose them, when it would have been really nice to have a weapon instead.
I was looking at the Mario Kart GP item list and this game is the king of having pointless items and crap!
Those games have an unlockable item system to encourage you to keep pumping in coins, though. It needs a ridiculous amount of items for that reason, and really, there's only so many possible things a Mario Kart item can do and act, so they're repeated a lot.
Is it really that bothersome to you? Really
EDIT: Actually, I looked at the list, and the majority of items are at least somewhat different, with the exception of the various character-specific items, which seem to often do the same things as another's. But, money money money mooooneeeyyy.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
