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.
nocturnal YL: I've been thinking about how would things turn out if we do another NinDB Top 25 after 5 years passed. One thing I'm sure is that the participation rate would remain low.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.
