Outside of Pichu, I honestly don't see anyone in this list joining. In the event that they do, my (completely random) bet is that they'll be lumped to the 1994-1998 group. Makes more sense to me that Nintendo 64 characters fall into the same category.
These are the past stages I hope would come back: Planet Zebes (64), Yoshi's Island (64), Saffron City (64), Kingdom (Melee), Kongo Jungle (Melee), Great Bay (Melee), Fountain of Dreams (Melee), Fourside (Melee), Pirate Ship (Brawl), Summit (Brawl)
I wouldn't mind paying for all these. Hell, I wouldn't mind paying for any extra stages (old and new alike). I just want more stages.
Still, I wonder what Dr. Mario and Rhythm Heaven stages would be like...
My take is that I hope this is not true. Bomberman as a partially modified Snake makes zero sense.
Can't say much about Shovel Knight, except that who the heck is this guy? We did have Roy back in Melee, but they're perhaps having different criteria now because Smash today is much different than before. It now has more vocal fans and all that. Also, sensasionalism. Where are the Rayman fans now?
Personally, I'd like them to stick to just Nintendo, CAPCOM, SEGA and BANDAI NAMCO characters. I'd accept SQUARE ENIX and Koei Tecmo too -- the bottom line is that they should be major Japanese publishers with current ties to Nintendo. Now excuse me while I disable auto-update for my Wii U.
What the fuck is up with all these people wanting Shovel Knight? He's just some indie garbage on every other console! And Shovel Knight got extra characters and stages on PS4 and Xbone. Why would he be in Smash?
Ugh. And the K Rool hype is getting reeeeeeeeally annoying as well. I want him in the game, and I want Isaac. Both would be perfect additions but now we're getting people begging for K Rool who have no idea who he is. It's driving me a little off the wall.
I thought the PS4 and Xbone only got one exclusive boss fight each? When Shovel Knight came out it was only available on PC, Wii U and 3DS, and Nintendo are making Shovel Knight Amiibos. And the Nintendo versions have extra Miiverse/Streetpass stuff other consoles obviously didn't get. So although it's been ported to other stuff since, it's still got a strong Nintendo connection. I haven't played it myself, but all I hear about it is how awesome it is, and how it's one of the most successful indie games ever released on consoles. I can see why people want him in.
EDIT: Also this. Apparently Nintendo accounts for exactly half of Shovel Knight's overall sales.

The Shovel Knight amiibo isn't being made by Nintendo, they are lending tech support so that it can be a functional third party accessory, but the manufacturing is being done by a completely separate company (just like the Skylanders amiibo).
The thing about SK (and Shantae) is that they're bandwagon characters the same way that Geno was when Brawl in development. A few loud people get the ball rolling, and suddenly lots of people pile on because it's the cool thing to do. Smash Bros. character debates are serious business after all.

I still don't understand what the hell people see in Geno. He was the least interesting part of SMRPG (which, compared to Paper Mario and M&L combined, kinda pales now), his design is fugly, and Mallow was infinitely superior to him.
He's not even that. He doesn't seem to express any emotion whatsoever besides... determination I guess? He just shows up, delivers a bunch of exposition, then goes dead quiet for almost the entire game until you reach Smithy's place.
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.

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…

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.

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.

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.
