Hey, so I know it's been a while since I've been on, and by extension updated this thread. Life gets in the way a fair bit, so I haven't had time to say anything. Don't think I forgot about the updates to the Dojo, though - I did see that Isabelle is in the game, as well as Incineroar. Opinion piece: I don't know what to make of Isabelle since I'm not much of an Animal Crossing fan, but for Incineroar, I'm a bit nettled that they went for him. Decidueye is better. But I think all of that is made up for with character 70. For those of you who knew me since I joined Smash Bros. Online, I think we all know where I'm going with this. A generic Mario enemy, and a flower pot. Piranha Plant has opened the gates, people, and I think I'm justified in suggesting what I'm about to suggest. Wiggler and Diglett for Smash 5. I will be vindicated!
Jokes notwithstanding, I do feel a certain attachment to the playable Piranha Plant. Out of left field? Sure. But it's exactly doofy enough for my taste and, joke notwithstanding, I do feel a certain sense of...I guess the best description would be a nostalgic vindication? Like a kid who learned that dragons don't exist years before discovering the magic that is dinosaurs, or that unicorns aren't real, but then learns that rhinos are related to horses so haha, no, unicorns totally exist and they're even cooler than you thought because they're actually rhinos. I'm gonna main it.

It's an old, now-defunct fan-site that a good chunk of the active community here used to be members of. Johans, Leon, Shadrio, Parrothead, myself...there's probably more that I'm not thinking of right now, but anyways. The concept was basically submitting ideas for the next Smash Bros. game (at the time, Brawl had yet to be announced,) with approved content being added to a topsite. The first link in my signature is to my successor, which...let's just say isn't as active as SBO was. Though it does better than the other group that came of it, in that it's been online consistently since opening now 13 years ago.
I feel old. Let's talk Smash Bros. Dojo.
So I missed the Direct, were Spirits announced there? And if so, what do we know about Spirit Battles from there?
On the weekend Sakurai showed off some special battles at an event in Japan. He showed a battle against Tatanga from Super Mario Land, which was essentially a battle against Morton with Superscopes spawned by default on the Galaxy stage. It's not a whole lot, but I appreciate the effort.
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

Shrikeswind: Anyways I'm back and I'm gonna get started on the Christmas thread soon. Any suggestions for this year?

Shrikeswind: Can't be an advent calendar of any sort, considering how late I am.

Nester the Lark: Yikes! Sorry to hear you had COVID, Shrikes. Hope you're doing better.

nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Still coughing my lungs up, but yeah, doing a lot better now that it's past tense.

Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Nester the Lark: I've got ideas for some posts I want to make. Now if only I could make time to actually write them...

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

Shrikeswind: I'll see you guys later. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Shrikeswind: Happy New Year everyone! Technically it's still 2021 for me, but it won't be in 7 minutes.

nocturnal YL: Finally finished Metroid Dread. It's an alright game.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
