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: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

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.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
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.)

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…
