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: 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…

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.
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.
