  • What if Elastigirl from The Incredibles was in ARMS? Her design and abilities would fit ARMS's narrative and just because Smash forbids 4th party guests doesn't mean ARMS would too.
    What if each version of Mortal Kombat 11 got an exclusive character in the season pass? The XBOX One version could get Jago from Killer Instinct, the PS4 version could get the Bloodborne Hunter and the Switch version could get Bayonetta.

    I'd rather they not pull a soul calibur. Especially when you consider how much more popular fighting games competitively are now, having to have 3 different systems for people to play in tournaments would be too much a hassle, and honestly tournaments would just ban the guest characters anyway because players could never train against a particular one all the time unless they were privileged/rich enough to own all 3 game systems.
    In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, there's an NPC who makes fun of Banjo's design and then breaks the 4th wall and says the fans aren't going to like it. If Rare knew that fans wouldn't like Banjo's new look, then why did they use it?
    What if Banjo had a bad fur day instead of Conker and Conker stayed family friendly?
    Maybe Microsoft shouldn't have bought out Rare and Nintendo shouldn't have bought them out either. Perhaps Rare should have become an independent company. This way they could have finished making the games they were making before Microsoft bought them and they could have made games for every console.
    What if Virtual Console returns, but it only has N64, GameCube and Wii games? NES and SNES games are already part of NSO.
    It doesn't matter if a newcomer is either base game or DLC. DLC newcomers don't have to have gimmicks and base game newcomers don't have to have ordinary movesets. Inkling and Ken have gimmicks and Banjo, Byleth and Sephiroth all have ordinary movesets.
    Chris Seavor says he would come back to voice Conker if he was to join Smash, so what if Conker is in Vol. 2?
    If Perfect Dark Zero is a prequel to Perfect Dark, then the Perfect Dark reboot will be the sequel. So we'll have a trilogy on our hands.

    I can't see how that makes any sense, at all. There's little to zero chance that the reboot has any continuity with prior games.

    Why wouldn't it have continuity with the first two games?

    Because reboots do not tend to be sequels story wise. The purpose of a reboot is to be a continuity reset and start a new ignoring the canonical events of previous installments to start a-new, like Castlevania Lords of Shadow whose story is not related to any CV game that came before it.
    In the SuperMarioLogan series, every character is an idiot, not just Jeffy.

    Except for the Cheese Rat. He outsmarted Chief Pee Pee and Brooklyn Guy when they were trying to kill him with those mouse traps in that episode "Grilled Cheese". He's the only character I haven't seen make a mistake or did something really stupid at least once since like you said, the SuperMarioLogan cast isn't the brightest of the bunch.
    What if Bayonetta 3 gets put on both Switch and XBOX One? The XBOX One version may sell better and Nintendo and Microsoft are on good terms.
    Banjo-Pilot is a good game, but it doesn't live up to the potential themes of its concept. It's about racing on a track. They could have used cars instead of planes. You even slow down when you fly above things that would slow a car down.
    Maybe FE haters don't have a problem with the FE reps being anime, maybe the haters have a problem with the TYPE of anime the FE characters are. If the FE reps had big eyes, goofy faces and wore bright and colorful outfits like the 4 Dragon Quest Heroes do, would the FE haters complain at least a little less than they already do?

    No, there's just too many of them in comparison to other franchises. Donkey Kong has three, Zelda has six (technically three), and Sonic has one, yet Fire Emblem gets eight? Doesn't make any sense to me and never will.
    (Though, having a Fire Emblem antagonist in Smash would be pretty cool, no doubt)

    Fire Emblem has a rotating cast of main characters in each Fire Emblem game. If DK had multiple main protagonists, then DK would get the FE treatment.
    In Smash 6, Banjo should swing his backpack at opponents that are above him for his up Smash. This would work better than the Bill Drill.
    Should Banjo have been Challenger Pack 1 instead of Joker? Joker could have been in the third one.

    I prefer Joker as the first Ultimate DLC just like I prefer Snake as the first third party. It lets us know that we’re not just getting obvious and fan-favorite characters.
    When Rotten Tomatoes reviews movies, they review them without comparing them to anything else. That could be why The Last Jedi has a 90% even though the original trilogy is even better.
    Megadoomer

    Rotten Tomatoes doesn't review movies - they gather review scores and show the percent of critics that thought the movie was good (which, in this case, means giving it a score above a certain amount - I think it's 70% or 3.5/5). I'm not sure how accurate this gathering process is for older movies like the original trilogy, since it seems like the original reviews would be in print.

    EDIT: Also, I'm not sure why you're complaining, seeing as the original trilogy still had better percentages for two of the three movies, though the Last Jedi's score was based on about four times the amount of reviews:

    Am I alone in saying the Last Jedi was good?

    If Nintendo wanted ARMS to become the next Splatoon, don't you think Nintendo would have put more effort into making ARMS? It has overly simplistic gameplay and a lack of content. The game had no chance of becoming the next Splatoon and Nintendo would have known that before they released it.
    Ben Holt

    Agreed. It was a fine game, but it was very small in scope. Splatoon had an entire single player campaign to get the players familiar with the mechanics.
    ARMS was just a regular arcade fighter.
    A "90's kid" who grew up with Banjo should get a job at Rare and then be able to make new Banjo games.

    I imagine the industry is rife with micro-management, however. So such an individual would be but a drop in the pond. Besides that, I think it would ultimately be up to someone 'higher up the totem pole' to make that call.

    There are probably already lots of people who grew up with Banjo-Kazooie that work at Rare. It’s not like it’s up to each employee to decide which game a studio makes
    If Smash is a celebration of gaming, gaming means both 1st and 3rd party games, so don't you think 1st and 3rd party characters should have the same criteria and rules to get into Smash? If obscure 1st party characters can join, then obscure 3rd party characters should be allowed to join too. Sure, obscure 3rd parties would cost Nintendo money to use, but this is Smash we're talking about. Smash is going to make millions of dollars regardless of how popular or obscure a 3rd party character is.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Well, 3rd party licencing is more complicated since Nintendo doesn't own the rights to any 3rd party properties they invite to Smash. It's up to the copyright owners if more characters from their own franchises can be added to the roster as if Nintendo asks and said company says no, there's nothing Nintendo can't do about it since that property isn't their's.
    When N64 Online gets added to Switch Online, Conker's Bad Fur Day should be one of the games, but it should be heavily censored. Most of the blood could be painted a different color and Nintendo would tell us it's not blood. A lot of the profanity could also be censored and some suggestive cutscenes could also be removed. The NSO version of CBFD could just be censored to point where it would get a T rating, but SOME of the blood, language and raunchy moments would still be in it.

    There's no middle ground here though, you can't possibly make it T either. There's too much graphic imagery to censor in the key parts of the game.
    • A giant singing mountain of crap who uses profanity.
    • Dumping squirrels into a grinder to feed a giant vampire
    • Ripping the butt-cheeks off a giant caveman.
    • Fighting Nazi teddy bears with military attire and machine guns. We have to delete that whole chapter.
    • A chest-buster killing the main antagonist after your girlfriend got murdered.
    • Gigantic booby sunflower
    • Having to blow zombie's heads off to kill them.
    • Pissing on rock people.
    • Crushing a baby dinosaur for a blood sacrifice.
    • Hitting a boiler's hanging balls for damage.
    Rareware is not going to go through the trouble of having to delete/censor all of that when the end result will probably be a large amount of backlash from the community. You either keep it as it is (or with slight censorship like in Live & Reloaded) or don't bring it at all.

    Then maybe it could just be a $20 eShop game. If it was free on Switch Online, kids could play it and they would see all the bad things about it, but if it costed money, they would need their parents to buy it for them and that wouldn't happen.
    Shroob
    Shroob
    Yeah, you'd need to do a lot to censor Conker. Blood is barely the issue when you have stuff like piles of crap that say they'll stuff your head in their butt and one of Conker's abilities is getting drunk off his ass and pissing on things.
    Diddy Kong Racing (N64 version) will be lost in the sands of time if it never gets ported to a current gen console. Super Mario Bros. NES will never be lost since it has tons of ports while Diddy Kong Racing has none. When N64 Online gets added to Switch Online, Diddy Kong Racing needs to be in it.
    It's important that a streaming service has original shows or else there's no reason to pay for the service since you can watch all of its shows on other services. No exclusive shows, no business.
    I wish the new COPPA rules were gone so we could comment on the videos that are "made for kids."
