A good presentation, surprised at Corrin and Bayonetta's inclusion. Corrin moveset looks pretty cool as well as Bayonetta's.
The videos announcing them were great as well. I expected Corrin would have been a new fighter for the next Smash Bros not DLC for this one. I thought Bayonetta's was going to announce another Kid Icarus character at first.
So did anyone vote (or knew someone who voted) for Bayonetta here though? I'm not against her being in, it just I really did not expect her to do so well in the poll.
Also great to see the Takumaru Mii fighter costume get in, though I was a bit surprised to not see more costumes get in (when they said 5th and 6th waves I expected more).

I think Corrin being in this Smash makes sense, since by the time the next Smash comes out, who knows what will happen to Fire Emblem. Between Melee and Brawl, Fire Emblem went through 3 iterations; similarly, Fire Emblem 15 may very well have come out if they are going to have a next Smash. Corrin would have been old news by then.
And new remix of if ~Hitori Omou~ (I haven't watched the presentation in English)! Yay!
Bayonetta was... well, I certainly didn't expect her. If she's #1 among the realisable characters, I wonder who are unrealisable. Some say non-game characters and those with licensing issues, but I suspect Inkling may also be one (with the ink physics and whatnot).
Also, time to watch the vocal fans cry about this presentation.
I voted for Isaac. Don't know if they'll track IP, so I voted only once per language* and machine (home computer, phone and work computer).
* English, Japanese and French; those are the only languages Smash is released in and I can write.
Smash Bros keeps trying its damndest to make me hate Fire Emblem. Remember how people always saw Ergheiz as an FF7 fighting game? Now Smash Bros is a Fire Emblem fighting game with some other characters thrown in. It's like, Fire Emblem x Mario x Pokemon.
Eh, I haven't bought any of the DLC. Nintendo goes overboard with the prices of its DLC. I gotta say though, when I saw Pit on the Bayonetta trailer, I was thinking "Oh god, we better not be getting another Kid Icarus character."
I was pleasantly surprised.
I just really REALLY wanted Golden Sun to have any sort of representation. We'll never get a new game.

Because she's a character trope/archetype that you can find just about anywhere else. Which doesn't help one bit when you have a whole bunch of otherwise unique/interesting characters in the same series as her. Plus, she was not even in the first game.
It's reached the point where they're deliberately trying to turn the series into "Ashley & Friends: Featuring Wario". People recognize her, but they don't know about what series she's from, nor do they even care to look into it. Everyone's forgotten about all the other characters as a result.
Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.

Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.

nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.

Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.

nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.

nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
