  • You know how Nintendo likes to make jokes at the expense of Roy and Roy having the same name?
    Yeah, I have a feeling they're going to that twice as much if Ryu Hayabusa gets in Smash.
    When Sonic fans are still talking about how bad Forces was, three years later, that's when you know we have nothing to talk about.

    KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 and honestly we’re lucky to have those things. And I think a big reason we’re all so hungry for new games is because we quite literally had a Sonic game every year up until 2015. So I’ll wait a little longer, and I am enjoying SAGE quite a bit. Maybe I’ll pick up the IDW comics sometime but I’ll have to do a lot of catching up.

    Didn't they officially say they're going to stop doing yearly releases so they can give more time to making each game as best they can?

    Yes and I’m glad they are. It’ll just take some getting used to.
    My first choice for a mobile games rep would be Crazy Dave.
    I didn't have any problems with Breath of the Wild's voice cast. I thought they were all pretty good-except Link of course, he screamed half the time and forgot all his lines.
    Despite what you think about not having the Minecraft base soundtrack in Ultimate, you can’t deny that the songs we did get are nothing short of amazing.

    I don't even think they should have used songs from the original Minecraft game. Play a match with the "Environmental Noises" track from Pikmin… It's not that fun

    it's so much fun to just take a break from the same fast paced music and just get some nice ambience for once

    and even then, there's still songs in the game that would've been good for fighting anyway, such a pigstep

    Sonic 2's final boss is way more intense and fitting for the part of the game, but Sonic 3's is just better for listening.

    My top Sonic 3K track, as cliché as it is to say: Hard Times - I mean, Ice Cap. Carnival Night (PC) is good too.

    Ice Cap/Hard Times was a close second because I love snow levels so much-but the amazing breakdown in the middle of Flying Battery won me over. I've actually never heard the PC version of Carnival Night as I haven't revisited Sonic 3 since Classic Collection.

    And about Sonic 2, I actually feel the same way about Open Your Heart. In Adventure it's a better song, but in Generations it's a much better boss theme.
    I think it’s better to go through quarantine without thinking about it much. Whenever I think about what life could be without COVID or the fact that I’m doing the exact same things in every day, that’s when I get most depressed. As long as I can tackle my tasks head on, do well in this sorry excuse for online school, and relax with videogames every day in the evening, without considering the long-term, I’ll make it through this.

    I'm surprised I've been able to make it through this year, and I think Janx nailed the exact reasons why. I only think about Covid when I'm outside, but I'm able to tune those thoughts out by putting on my mask and doing my thing. Ironic, considering I suffer from hypochondrial related anxiety on a regular basis.

    I’m still a little bit bitter that the entire quarantine interrupted my plan to bring to the wife and kids to the states to meet their grandparents for the first time. I got $4,000 of the $5,000 I used on tickets thankfully but the ticketing company took $1,000 of it. I had several interviews and networking meetings set up for possible job opportunities for when we move there. I did a few via Zoom but many cancelled sadly. So now we are moving back the States basically with nothing.
    Day 1 of posting my favorite song from every Sonic game:
    Steve is really, really weird. But I'm willing to hold out on my journey to main him.

    He is weird doesn't seem crazy broken tho
    My switch kept running into busy servers and it was taking forever. I'll try to get some sleep tonight and play Steve tomorrow when it's died down a bit.
    Decided to spoil myself on Last of Us Part II.
    At first I was hesitant to buy it, but now?
    I never want to play this game. Ever.
    Having Joel die within minutes of the game alone makes me want to vomit-why would you do that to a character that means so much to us, and try to make out his killer as not an awful person? Apparently lots of other things happen in the game that do their absolute best (worst?) to make you feel uncomfortable-not at all what I need from a video game right now or ever. So no, this a pass for me. I may have loved the first game, but I'll do myself a favor and decide not to play this one.
    On a brighter note, Steve is tomorrow!! :)
    So apparently Sega is dropping Sonic Adventure 3 hints, now more explicit than ever.
    I can't believe this. I want to believe that this is some kind of prank, so Sega can say next year "Screw you, Sonic Forces 2, baby!" but no this has to be real. Everything has led up to this-the Adventure remixes, the Adventure artwork, the many Adventure memes they posted, not to mention the hefty amount of rumors...
    This might be happening. If it is, I couldn't be more excited.

    Always has been...
    In reality though, they released a Station Square remix late last year, and ever since it's been Sonic Adventure art, Sonic Adventure memes, and Sonic Adventure music coming out of Sonic Twitter. Same thing they did with Classic Sonic leading up to Mania. So yes, it's highly likely Sonic Adventure 3 would come out.

    SEGA has been having a good year so far, so I wouldn't be surprised if they announced something as big as Sonic Adventure 3.
    "In the Archie comics, Sonic's real name is revealed to be Olgilvie Maurice Hedgehog. He tries desperately to protect that information, possibly out of embarrassment."
    Sonic comics are a whole other world. Considering what I've seen from it as an outsider, though, this just scratches the surface. Maybe I should make an Archie Sonic iceberg...

    They're fun, if admittedly super weird in the pre-Ian Flynn era. I would definitely recommend them if you're interested in an expanded take on Sonic.

    Be warned, though: Some of the art before Flynn's era was...Unique, lol.

    I read that one where Knuckles turned into some evil villain with a mask and the echidna elder told Sonic to execute him.
    MooMew64
    MooMew64
    That one was one of the first major stories Ian wrote, if I'm remembering correctly. It's one of my personal favorites, it took a lot of the weird echidna lore the series had and applied it in a more cohesive and interesting story.

    Fun fact: The echidna who told Sonic to kill Knuckles was Knuckles' dad, lol.
    As much as I love classic sonic, his gameplay style is very defined at this point, whereas Modern has been stumbling since 1999. Some great games, but that doesn’t diminish the fact that they haven’t found an ideal formula for him yet. I really hope Sonic Team’s putting their all into the next 3D Sonic game, with some enhanced ports and a possible Mania 2 for Classic fans like myself (I love all gameplay styles, favorite being Classic). But the longer Modern Sonic is struggling, the more Sega uses the Genesis style games as a crutch to hold up Sonic as a whole-which in turn prevents both Sonics from evolving.

    I wish they just stuck with the daytime Unleashed/Colours/Generations style of gameplay. That seemed to consistently work well for them, and I don't get why they changed it for Lost World and Forces.

    I'm not saying they should never do it again, but that 2D works so much better for Sonic. They definitely can make a really good 3D game, but they'd have to stick with what they've done right with past good 3D games, and greatly improve upon it without feeling incredibly buggy. Recent 3D games have ranged from mediocre-disastrous, which is why I thought of sticking to 2D, but they definitely can do it with the right people. Good point.
    Janx_uwu
    Janx_uwu
    RealPokeFan11 RealPokeFan11 Well if they stick to 2D then it'd be very restrictive for the games, if Mario can work in 3D and 2D there's no reason Sonic shouldn't. Like I said, right ideas and the right people are all it needs, plus longer dev time. I want a world in which both styles can live in harmony, and by Sega releasing Forces and Mania in the same year tells me they want to do that, but haven't gotten there just yet. I think the opposite, really-if we stick to 3D we can finally get a consistently good 3D gameplay style, whereas sticking to 2D, while it is very good, means the 3D games will be lacking because of it.
    A perfect example of this is Forces. Not only is it filled with 2D sections in a 3D game, but it also has Classic Sonic as a whole other character, with little effort put into either of these things. They were only made for nostalgia pandering, which is in no way a good thing. As a result the 3D sections suffered. Really I don't think they would've been very good at all considering they had few (and not great) level designers not to mention a director who wanted a gameplay style simpler than Classic. But you get the idea.
    As long as they work hard and get better staff they can achieve a consistently good 3D style, not saying 2D games can't come out during this transitional period but 3D should be the focus so that, as a result, both styles can be good.
    If Jonesy got into Smash I'd be totally cool with it. I played the game mid 2019, had fun with it, and set it down when I got bored. But the game itself is oozing with charm, and it has a large playerbase for a reason-it's free, it's fun, it's addicting, it's easy to play and tough to master, and it's constantly being updated so that returning players stay entertained. If they get in Smash not only will I be happy for the younger crowd who can have a character they can immediately recognize, but also in terms of gameplay because having a character that can build pre-made structures and has projectiles sounds really fun to play as and against, in both casual and competitive environments.

    So a popular video game collaborating with famous people, and other forms of media is a bad thing? And regarding the community, yes it's pretty bad, but the developers don't control who plays their game, or how their players act. The most developers can do is add a report button, or some sort of "good behavior" system like Overwatch did. Don't forget that many Smash pro players were recently exposed for committing disgusting crimes, so your argument that the community being bad is the entire reason why a character shouldn't happen is ridiculous. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions when it comes to games, but the way you've been acting towards this whole thing is silly. I learned this the hard way with the Sans support thread back in 2018.

    @psb123 at least we know about it now and can permaban them and set up rules to prevent future abuse. But yeah, having a few select ppl represent an entire community is BS.
    Steve really does seem to excel at everything-the main weakness will probably be remembering to use all of your tools when appropriate, so kind of like Shulk.
    Sora Ltd. is a one-man company, which I didn't know before.
    Balance changes are sometimes made through Sakurai playing with coworkers at lunch (pre-COVID). Interesting.
    That's a tiny jump.
    Wow, those taunts are amazing!
    They did an awesome job giving Steve what is effectively five special moves.
    Brawl Meta Knight up b is back now, I guess.
    Minecart's gonna cheese people out so dang much.
    Wait, my opponent can counterpick Smashville and I'll mine mainly wood? Darn, well at least it's a cool gimmick, and that means Lylat Cruise and Kalos are good stage picks for Steve.
    Fair and bair look extremely good.
    Sakurai has a diamond sword! I don't know why I find that so funny!
    Wait, his down air consumes iron? Trash.
    Wait, his down air can be canceled? Awesome.
    (Did they not show his neutral air or am I just losing my mind?)
    Oh, can I make a sand sword? (probably not)
    Wow that block placement has no limit? Sweet!
    inaudible screaming as Sakurai does a down smash offstage
    inaudible screaming intensifies as I realize you can use block for landing and recovering

    They HAVE to be top tier.
    Oh wow they did such an amazing job with the stage!
    I'm not a huge Minecraft music buff but I like the tracks I'm hearing!
    Finally, special mii costumes for Brawler!
    Nice, diamond armor!
    What's that sword guy from?
    Big no comment as Travis appears soon after
    Thirteenth isn't super close but I can wait.
    Wow, that was some presentation.
    So, I can quite literally prevent my opponent from grabbing ledge.
    Woah.
    Gotta say, I thought Steve was gonna be good after the reveal trailer, but now this? Oh, I think he's better than I imagined.
    Guys I found it! I finally found an opinion no one can get mad about! clears throat

    Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a video game for the Nintendo Switch.
    Look, I'm fed up with the Steve hate, so here are my final thoughts on the whole thing.

    Nintendo put a character from the best selling game of all time into their videogame about the most popular video game series. That's a smart move, and CP7 will get hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of downloads, not to mention new purchases of the game.
    Said it once, I'll say it again-There are billions of people who love this franchise and are happy to see him in Smash. I'm sorry your character didn't get in and I wish them luck going forward. Direct hate on Steve and his fans, and whether or not he deserves a fighter slot, will not solve anything except make more people mad. Minecraft, whether you like it or not, deserves to be in Smash, and with the relationship Nintendo and Microsoft have, it was gonna happen any day now.
    So get over it.
    Ok, last profile post about all this. I'm exhausted.

    If anyone has actually, unironically said “What’s next, Fortnite?!” To criticize Steve’s addition... just stop
    Janx_uwu
    Janx_uwu
    The fact that Ultimate's inclusions have been all over the place means really anyone could be next. Fortnite, Crash, Sonic, Mario, first party or third party, indie or triple A-no matter who it is it'll be completely out of left field.
    So I guess Sonic is the strongest canonical character now. On top of breaking the sound barrier at Mach speeds, becoming invincible and super strong in his many transformations, and killing various gods with said transformations...
    He can punch you into an entirely different universe.
    Phoenix Wright is one of my most wanted, but I haven't played any of the games, so why do I want him? Simple: his moveset would be hilarious, kind of like Villager (we already have some stuff to build off of thanks to MvC). His overall inclusion would just be great.
    You didn't lose to the demon king-killing hero of time.
    You didn't lose to Mr. Videogame himself.
    You didn't lose to a space fox with high tech gear.
    You didn't lose to the fastest thing alive.
    You didn't lose to a god-killing puffball.
    No...you lost to...a student of the law.
    Just imagine the taunts! Maybe his Final Smash would just have him prove why his opponent is guilty, before landing them in jail. Hilarious. He would easily be one of the most insulting characters to lose to-especially if he's a low tier.

    If we do get him, I hope his reveal trailer is him defending Mario in court over the Mario Sunshine incident in a reference to the beginning of that game. That would only add to the hilarity.

    Damn, Mario has not had a good last few years. Stabbed in the back by Ridley, blown up by a Creeper, and now is being accused of numerous illegal activities on Delfino Isle.

    Poor man.
    To those of you mad about his reveal: Steve was inevitable. Nintendo and Microsoft had great relations, probably just as good as Nintendo and Sega at this point. Minecraft is on Switch. Minecraft is the most popular and best-selling game ever. It inspired a generation of gamers-one I was lucky to be a part of. Smash is a crossover of gaming's biggest icons:by that logic alone, Steve is a must for Smash.
    I understand if you feel underwhelmed-Minecraft is definitely not the game for everyone. But if you're mad about something that was going to happen from the start, whether it be this game or Smash 6 or it even could've happened in the Sm4sh DLC-I pity you. He deserves to be in Smash, from an objective point of view. He has amazing moveset potential, he's extremely popular, he's a gaming icon, Nintendo already was very familiar with the IP-it was just gonna happen any day.
    Four more to go. And if they're as crowd-pleasing as Steve, I guarantee you'll get something you like. Trust me, I was fuming after Byleth's reveal, and it's a moment I'm not proud of, especially as I sit on the other side of that fence today. Best if we just appreciate the lengths Sakurai went to to make this happen and go about our days.
    (In terms of gameplay though? Yeah, he'll probably be busted. I don't blame you for raging at that).

    Not only that, but we already have a very mainstream character that also incorporates building into their respective games. Completely different characters, but the similarities they do have makes me think he's not coming this pass.
    If he is though...Smash Ultimate will probably be one of the best selling games of all time. I'm not even joking. Imagine the crowds of youngsters walking into tournaments, Jonsey mains through and through-that image is awesome and terrifying at the same time.

    I have no issues with Jonesy. I'd be completely cool with it. Fortnite is in the exact same position as Minecraft was about 1-2 years ago. (Hated due to its sheer popularity and community) Its not the game's fault, every game is gonna have toxic people in its community, and sadly there's not much you can do about it from a development standpoint. Eventually, just like Minecraft, Fortnite will get out of this "cringy kids game" phase that the Internet perceives it as. Also, the game's rated T for Teen, so it's not inappropriate for Smash. If Minecraft can get in when under these circumstances, Fortnite probably can as well. What matters is Nintendo + Sakurai's plans, and approval from Epic Games.
    let's go
    Great, now all of the ads I'm getting are from flash game sites advertising "free" versions of Minecraft.
    Two possible outcomes from today:
    Either Master Chief is deconfirmed, or Master Chief is a lock for fp2.
    I predict he'll be a Mii Costume revealed on Saturday.
    Okay. There is hate and it is there.
    I shall let it be.
    Today, I focus not on the haters.
    I focus on the fact that this is REAL, one of my favorite videogames and a game that's a huge part of my childhood is represented in SMASH, and that is an amazing thing. I love how accurate the animations are to the characters and the game, it's awesome.
    Sakurai's Minecraft world is actually pretty dope.
    Time to go to the Minecraft support thread. I want to start labbing pre-release.
    I want to know how Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle became a thing.
    "Let's make a strategy shooter game with Mario crossing over with the Rabbids." It's like the most unorthodox idea for a video game crossover I've heard in a long time, probably since Marvel vs Capcom.
    That doesn't stop it from being one of my favorite Switch exclusives though.

    Really, you could slap Mario's name on just about anything and people will buy it.
