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.
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.

Nester the Lark: Congrats again, Uncle Shrikes!

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
