  • Riddle: I can be lost forever, yet always be with you. The first time you gathered, I was not the same. I can leave you perplexed as to what was true. When I am not here and you need me, it's shame.
    Your analogy comparing what I do with Bethoven was a bit silly, but I still like it.

    I should test the emojis for this device at some point. Many times, the appearance is not quite ideal.
    A thought came. What should be the next attack effect to be developed, and what should be modified about the existing ones? I was thinking about how there are enough characters with the 'darkness' effect on attacks, but it does nothing if I am correct. How could that change?

    I shall accept one more response before revealing the intended answer (unless more than one arrives before I return).

    No. The answer: If you 'take' (as in carry or lead) two '...steps' forward and two (as if two had legs) steps backward, you will be in front of two.
    Riddle: As long as you have not worn me, you are 'me.' The film with a house guest will star me. When you visit, I am here. Where is thanks giving? I am near.

    Life?
    Doc Monocle

    It is not life. I would give the answer 2-3/5 stars, but it would make the task of rating much easier if you gave reasons with each answer.
    Riddle: Run in me, and you will run out of me.

    How was my answer 1/5 anyway? I thought it was quite clever actually: if you run into bills (piece of paper that tells you how much you must pay) then you will run out of bills (the paper slips that are money).

    Since nobody has guessed correctly you should just tell us the correct answer.
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    I did not mean "run into." I meant "run in." However, by the former interpretation and your reasoning, it is clever, and given the misunderstanding, I would rate that 4/5 stars. I was thinking of a Mobius strip. Running in a Mobius strip, you will eventually run to the outside of it.

    Riddle: I have seen countless battles and doubtless, vict'ry I win, through thick and thin. Mightily I tense for the struggle, and hence, I am ready to go, head weightier to than fro.

    Ill explain now. In battles people die, and when a person dies death wins. The death toll would be more after the battle then before. You could say death is tensed up, waiting to claim lives.
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    Mmm... That I would say is good for 3-4/5 stars-- a decent answer. Stay tuned, for I am considering making a general puzzle thread.

    P.S. In case you missed it, I already revealed the answer to be 'catapult.'
    I'm currently trying to make these Backyard Sports threads relevant, and that's why I keep making new ones and periodically updating the old ones.
    Doc Monocle

    I would gladly campaign for it if it helps. That is no guarantee, but I am willing to attempt to attract attention to it. It is challenging to act accordingly, but think of any forum/thread as an ecosystem, with topics as the producers and posts as the consumers. There must always be something interesting and relevant to talk about, but if you provide too much, people will feed on it like a wild fire and run the thread out of resources until someone else revives it. it is an art and science I have yet to exploit well, but that is the observation.

    I just modified the general thread.
    Is there some sort of movement underway? I keep seeing avatars with 'Geno' hats. Whoever that is must be quite popular.

    It's a character from Super Mario RPG. He's a puppet with a gun and people want him in Smash.
    I shall withdraw for now. Despite earlier suggestions of the contrary, sometimes my thoughts fly faster than my eyes can catch.

    Quite valid. I need time to think about it more, and consider it all again.

    While it's true some others may be good people as well that may have feelings and might get too pushy over you not agreeing with their opinions, there are others who not only disagree with you but also don't give a **** about your feelings and try to harass or make fun of you in anyway. While not everyone is like this, a lot of people are. We live in a cruel world.

    Yes, we do. The hope is that by showing patience that is unearned, then even if you do not inspire your aggressors, you may be a positive influence on those who ARE paying attention.
    I could spend all day talking about what it means to call something stupid... That is depressing.

    BonafideFella BonafideFella , the truth is that there really is a place for the word "stupid," but it is a deep topic, and the way I see it, we mortals are not fit to use it. I just feel the compulsion to remind people of that, and I knew it would gain me enemies, but... I think you understand.
    I miss the riddles.
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    Mmm... I was hoping you would and hoping you would not say that! It is very hard to come up with original riddles that are not cracked in thirty seconds. I am still thinking, but even the cleverest riddles are susceptible to a disappointingly quick solution. I shall find something, but it could be a while.
    It recently occurred to me that Brawl may have been easier to play compared to other titles due to the optional nunchaku layout, as multiple inputs could be made simultaneously and nearly effortlessly, whereas the Gamecub controllers had stiff buttons, and were less ergonomic.
    Irony: One thing that is funny is the lottery ticket. With the high-end ones especially, you are more likely to die on your way to purchase a ticket than you are to win. My response to the Gambler's Fallacy, which is characterized by the declaration, "I just know I am going to get it one of these days!" is thus, "You may be right, friend!"

    If you look at statistics, you find that a staggering amount of casino profits are from problem gamblers, and they're intentionally set up to target the addicts.
    It'd be like alcohol brands setting up shop right inside Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Gambling is a cancer on our society.

    Commercialism is opportunistic, yes, and I shall always say yes, but remember that having so many deep, outspoken thoughts about systemic evils stated out loud will eventually cause trouble if you do not tread lightly.

    I'm gonna try never gambling. When I was 6 claw machines were my favorite and I was always like "one more try and I can get it." I mean sure I won my DS from one but I missed alot more.
    I made a Update to the Zelda Thread there are Now 4 Dlc Packs Containing more Characters and Co
    Aswell as the Plotsynopsis Section having a Short Sumary of the first 20 Missions or so!
    Doc Monocle
    Doc Monocle
    I just looked at the plot synopsis and DLC packs, but I am the wrong person to show this to. Like I said, I I am not very familizr with Zelda's games, and I have only played the original. Thus, I would not understand anything mentioned outside of those elements present in 'The Legend of Zelda'.

    I am not a furry, but the grammatical structure of the preceding clause is too much for me to handle!
    Riddle: I am a loyal follower. Stay still so I can be to your left in an hour, and to your right in another. My face cannot be seen, but it is like yours. What am I?
    Looks like I found another user who likes Backyard Sports.

    I have not even played Backyard Sports. I just thought the character would have been a fun inclusion for the sports-themed moveset. Though, the children-in-the-neighbourhood-playing-baseball-and-what-not concept did catch my attention as a way to include such a moveset without it having to be a NFL (or the like) character.

    Yeah. Pablo, Annie, and Reese all have their own threads too, if you want to check those out.
    Ancient Riddle (the honor system says you will not 'google' the answer): I walk on four legs in the beginning, two in the middle, and three near the end. What animal am I and why?
    link2702
    link2702
    human. babies crawl on all fours. kid-adult walks on two. many older humans need a cane (the "3rd leg" ) to walk.


    After posting my answer NOW I will google to see if i'm right.


    EDIT: ;)

    You are correct, sir/ma'am! This riddle is taken from a Greek legend starring the murderous prince, Oedipus, to whom the riddle is offered of a great sphinx.

    My school taught me this one years ago
    I did not know Samus had so many tricks up her sleeve! Charge shots, ice shots, missiles, bombs, power sprinting, power sprint jumping, wall jumping, tethering, bombs again (in clusters)... She was not only in my top ten in Smash Bros., but also COULD have been my favorite if she had all these tools and skills! That is only counting Super Metroid!

    I think everyone is just starting a meme in their profile posts and it's starting to spread fast. I don't think it has anything to do with politics as it starts off with "Not to get political but..."
    I think I am going to try Super Metroid for the first time. I might have a better idea of Samus now.
    Bonk... I have no idea how he would work in Smash Bros. except for perhaps variants of a headbutt... On with the brain exercises.
