  • MK8 Deluxe and MK Live are more than enough to hold us over until mario kart 9 hypothetically releases on the next console, but I would still be open to getting a spinoff or something before the next game. Honestly, I don’t really like the idea of mario kart 9 releasing on switch.

    I am fine with no Mario Kart 9 for a while as long as they keep putting characters such as Pauline, King Bob Omb or King Boo on spin-offs.

    Would be slightly dissapointed if Pauline stops appearing in spin-offs after Mario Golf

    MK8DX is honestly getting very stale at this point-we could absolutely use a Switch port of MK Tour or something of that nature.
    I dislike the trope in smash moveset making where the side special is just any random car a character has driven. Like it works some of the time but it’s mostly just not very fitting with the character and the playstyle of the rest of the moveset.
    Fingerless gloves get a lot of hate, but we really gonna let those weird half-gloves that like, anime characters wear which only cover half of the fingers on their hand get off scot-free?
    the characters of nick all star brawl have got to be some of the worst kept secrets in videogame history
    I feel like the fraymakers characters were selected more for variety and unique movesets rather than importance or even quality of games (not saying the games they’re from are bad tho lol)

    Like we already have a grappler, a zoner someone who attacks primarily by spiking, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that they’re all so unique and different
    Don’t you just love it when you have to explain to your teacher that you missed like 20 minutes of your math class because the only bathroom that wasn’t out of order was on the other side of the school and only had one stall working because someone took the soap dispenser and put it in the toilet, and so you had to wait for like 10 minutes almost accidentally inhaling second hand smoke to use the bathroom?
    I have a theory that the “are you still watching” thing netflix does is so that you’ll be slightly annoyed and want to talk about it with other people, thus giving netlix more publicity. Since something so trivial wouldn’t be a deal breaker for most, some people might actually want to try netlix because everyone’s talking about it.

    also if you really were in another room or something and accidentally left it on, wouldn’t that message make the situation a lot worse because it might burn into your TV screen?
    The growing popularity of the phrase “turn your brain off” in reviews of things really shows how meaningful stories are becoming rarer every day
    Oh my god the marvel what if zombies episode was really disappointing.

    The pace was just bad and shows how the one episode format isn't really working for the series. We barely get any time to be with these new versions of the characters and we barely know what the world is like, and what people truly think about it.

    Speaking of the characters, they're just really obnoxious in this episode, especially ant-man and spider-man, dear god I hope they never use those versions of the characters. Antman is so unbelievably unfunny here and spider-man's voice could have worked but since it sounds so different it just doesn't work. Not to mention characters look pretty different to their designs in the movies and so sometimes it was even a bit hard to reconize them. T'challa's voice was pretty good though so it's good that boseman's final(?) performance wasn't something too bad.

    Also, it's really weird that all these characters just work together so easily. They're all so different personality-wise and from such different parts of the MCU. Plus some of them haven't even met each other before! You're telling me there wouldn't be some kind of disagreement or disconnect between them all?

    It was all just so rushed and I wish it wasn't done like this. It's also really weird how it's kind of short compared to the other episodes.

    If I had a nickel for every alternate universe where the Avengers were all killed in record time by Hank Pym, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but it's weird it happened twice.

    TBH, What If? should be an hour at least, but it can work within the 30 minute time limit. Just look at episodes 2 and 4-they're not perfect and the pacing is still very off compared to your average MCU film, but they hit a lot of the right notes and compact an enjoyable non-canon MCU story into a half hour. Then you look at Zombies and clearly, the idea was too big for the time limit.
    I also wholly agree about Peter-he was probably my least favorite part of this last one. The MCU Peter I know wouldn't be this shining beacon of hope, smiling and being optimistic after the quick succession of deaths from his role models and friends-he would probably go into a panic attack that one of the other Avengers would have to help him out of, or he'd at least be thrown off in combat due to his sadness. He's a very competent superhero, but we have to remember that he's still a teenager.
    Also, can I just say how cringy the Wanda zombie being protected by Vision plotline was? "Guy killing innocents in the name of/to save someone he loves a lot" has been a weirdly common trope in the series so far and it was done worst here.
    Your enjoyment of What If? depends solely on your outlook of the series. If you see it as a non-canon official spinoff series with endless possibilities for storytelling given how strict Disney usually is with Marvel story stuff, then yeah, you probably won't get much out of it. But if you just see it as 30 minutes of dumb animated Marvel fun, then you'll probably like it quite a bit. But even as someone who mostly associates with the latter, I really hated this episode.

    Yeah I really hate that "killing innocents to save someone you love" trope too, and I can't believe how overdone it is in the MCU. Especially because the people who do it aren't really portrayed as that bad or villainous (if that makes sense) and kind of get away with a lot of crimes that are just as bad, if not worse as things the other, more selfish villains do. Obviously their actions are portrayed as bad, and I'm not saying the marvel writers think crimes are OK if it's for a loved one, but seeing things like scarlet witch kidnapping hundreds of people and basically using child soldiers, only for her to be portrayed as being on the wrong path but with good intentions just makes me uncomfortable and has some pretty unfortunate unintended implications.
    I’m in favor of mario kart getting obscure mario characters but I don’t think it should just randomly make half the next game’s roster obscure characters from RPG’s or something like some people think

    Gordo as Kirby guest character for Mario Kart when?

    It would still be more preferable than making half the roster metal, babies, power up costumes, and koopalings like Mario Kart 8.

    I get this. I feel like it should be a fair balance between the icons, the obscurities, and the obligatory babies and such (cause you know they'd never cut them)
    All I really want is for them to actually add some Kongs and WarioWare employees...
    I feel like the crowd cheer in smash bros is a weird relic of the times when the series’s aesthetic was kind of inspired by wrestling and more creative
    Wario Wario Wario

    The announcer is a really weird relic too - in Smash 64 he was like an overenthusiastic wrestling announcer, in Melee he was more calm to fit the sci-fi Y2K aesthetic, then Brawl went all "epic gladiator" and he got echo-ier and more aggressive to match with a bit of a slight "old man" sound, 3DS/Wii U swapped to a more vibrant albeit subtle pop-art/comic book style and although Xander toned down his performance into a somewhat friendlier and more enthusiastic voice with a bit of humour thrown in, it really starts to seem like they're going with epic deep male voices for the sake of tradition and not to compliment the aesthetic - not helped when SSBU went for an aesthetic leaning more towards "Chromebook advert"

    Smash UI and theming, in general, is an aesthetic mess. I guess they spend so much time making sure all these contrasting characters fit together that they forget to mix a good cement to hold the spotless bricks.

    This is my new favorite Smash Ultimate diss.
    It kind of annoys me when people’s fan theories are entirely dependent on genetics. AHEM matpat AHEM. Like if genetics and punnet squares support your theory then it’s good to bring them up but using them as a sole reason to believe “[character] is actually [character]’s dad!” with literally no other evidence, then it’s a bad theory. You do realize it is physically possible for recessive genes to be added to a child right?

    so when a certain youtuber’s certain infamous theory about a certain plumber and a certain space princess makes a really outrageous claim that would completely change the entire series (luigi being in love with peach) and the only evidence they have is “it’s technically more likely to happen genetically” it’s a terrible theory
    My list of “characters a lot of people want in smash but I really don’t” is something like this:
    Porky, Masked Man, Pyramid Head, Bandana Dee and Toad. (there are probably more as well.)

    The first three are because of tonal issues and the last two are because they feel like boring and uninteresting characters when there are so many other good picks for characters from their series that would represent them better.
    Wario Wario Wario
    Wario Wario Wario
    I agree on Porky, Masked Man, Bandee, and Toad. Some of my personal LWs are:
    1. Shadow (I'd love a second Sonic rep, but not one who is synonymous with, and to some is even believed to have directly caused, the series' downfall.)
    2. Geno (He's a bland character who doesn't bring much unique to the table, even when compared to his co-star Mallow or other Mario one-offs like Tatanga, Vivian, Lanky, and Stanley)
    3. Sans (I'm not an Undertale fan, but surely the character who only fights in the storyline you're discouraged from playing isn't the best way to represent it?)
    4. Meowth (Same reason as your Toad reasoning)
    5. 9-Volt (Retro Nintendo stuff deserves better than to be compisited into a single fighter)
    I don't know enough about Pyramid Head to say for real, but what you said about him before has certainly made me a little more cautious about him. There's also a unique case for Krystal, who I think could have a killer moveset but I'd rather not have if they used her Adventures design - which they likely would judging by the AT

    Another character who I want as far away from Smash as possible: Klonoa. DK cargo into Byleth Up B sounds absolutely petrifying - and that's his main ability.

    I like the idea of Porky just for his gameplay style...but I totally understand why people would be against him.
    There aren't too many characters I'd really not like to see, but I at least agree with Wario3 on preferring someone other than Shadow, Geno, and Sans for those games.
    My headphones broke so today I watched a youtube video with auto generated captions on… then I realized youtube censors swears when it’s in autogenerated captions. That’s really stupid, if you have no rules against swearing why censor it then? Plus if I was a deaf person I would feel very patronized by something like that
    Adding all four ninja turtles to nick all star brawl would be very uninteresting to me. Just because they’re the main characters doesn’t mean adding all four would represent the series best.

    As an example, imagine if soul calibur 4 added luke skywalker and han solo as guest characters instead of darth vader and yoda. It would be a lot less interesting right?
    I’m not really a fan of rayquaza returning as a boss. I think for a pokemon boss we should get someone like giovanni with him sending out all of his pokemon individually
    The whole “persona 5 fans are always either fans of sega’s yakuza or danganronpa as well” meme is so accurate. Pretty much anyone I talked to irl who has played persona 5 also plays one of those games, and there’s a lot of people like that I know online
    I don’t get why people get angry when crossovers add non-main characters or characters that aren’t as “important” in the context of the story. I think crossovers don’t add enough of those characters and, in a very few situations, this goes for smash as well.
    Okay I'm sorry, the idea that white kids aren't "allowed" to dress as black panther for halloween or something is cringe. It's just stupid. If black panther's suit was pretty much just an african cultural outfit then we can have a conversation but there's nothing problematic about a kid wearing a costume of a black superhero they look up to. I know his suit likely has inspiration from african cultures, but I don't think that makes it bad.
    Even as someone who likes Tekken a lot, I'm not sure Kazuya was that good a good choice for the final DLC character. I know this may sound weird, but the fact that heihachi is a mii costume really lessened the impact of the reveal, and it didn't feel as special as getting a new series would. He was, of course, deserving enough though
