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.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
