Alright, this here's the official DOJO thread where we can discusss whatever news is posted on the Smash Bros site eventually. It's also the place where we can point and laugh at images Sakurai uploads to the site, five days a week!
First post has the daily image hotlinked for your easy browsing pleasure.
I'll edit the thread title the moment the actual titles are revealed. Unless they're really called SSBWiiU and SSB3D in which case, uhh..

Ha, didn't notice that. Yeah that works.
And it looks like the image gets updated at 9AM GMT every weekday, just so you know what time to check if you're itching for a new image. Have to say I think I like 3DS' Battlefield design better than the WiiU version. That backdrop's just gorgeous.
Some of the links on that site are direct hard links (like the Snapshot Galore 2 & 3 pages that link to the other language versions), and they naturally break because of the move. Whoever maintained the Smash Bros. site didn't bother to leave behind redirection pages, which is a pretty bad practice for updating websites.

Oh shit, new content incoming.
Atleast Pikmin & Olimar show up in the Wii version. (People were worried about Sakurai's comment on how the Ice Climbers gave them trouble in the 3DS version, expecting some changes for characters like them)
Probably the new Pikmin stage back there too. Wonder what crazy hazards they'll throw in this time.

This should be the pre-Pikmin 3 version of PNF-404. I heard that Pikmin 3's version is much more post-apocalyptic, with most traces of (hypothetical) humans reclaimed by nature.
I'm not going to take anything Sakurai says in unofficial media seriously. He said they were cutting characters in some interviews and that they were trying to fit in as many as possible in others. It sounds as if Sakurai himself wasn't serious about the answers, having said those just to give something to the interviewers.
I'm going to say the final change will not be unlike Melee-to-Brawl - lots of new ones added, while some whose fame is time-limited (Mewtwo, Roy) or don't stand out (Dr. Mario, etc) get cut.
And come on, just formally introduce the stages already!
Nice, Olimar's was confirmed pretty damn quick. He was definitely a fun character in Brawl, with all that "keep in mind what pikmin you have coming next", so you'd have to make quick decisions on whether to Side Smash (Red/Yellow), Grab (Blue) or Side Special (White/Purple) that incoming foe.
Anyway, I'm happy with the way they're presenting info this time. A little info here and there gives space to fan speculation, always a fun time with that, unlike last time in which they gave off too much info and we basically knew the entire game before it was released, down to the details.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
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.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
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.
