    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.

    I imagine they thought "let's cross over Mario with the Rabbids", went through a Wikipedia list of all Mario games and decided the first genre out of a hat that wasn't on that list.

    Great, now we just need a horror game, skateboarding game, flying simulator and traditional fighting game. Hmm, what are some other ones...

    I've got it. Mario MMORPG. Mario VR. Mario: Battle Royale. Mario visual novels.
    Really, you could slap Mario's name on just about anything and people will buy it.
    PSA: If you bully someone over the internet, there is no excuse-you are in the wrong. I don't care what their political beliefs are, or what they do for a hobby/job. Going out of your way to hurt someone because of these things is childish-it's stabbing a sleeping bear.
    Sorry, I just had an online class today and I was shocked by the amount of classmates who openly admitted to doing this. Frustrated me quite a bit, needed to write something in response.
    If I were ever to direct a sequel to Subspace, I'd probably settle a few things right out the gate:
    Make the environments more similar to iconic videogame worlds. We had a few like the Halberd, but more would be great-deserts and forests were cool but bland.
    Give every character a purpose. Sonic's scene was cool, but he kinda got snubbed with his screen time-same for TL, Wolf, and Jigglypuff.
    Pick it up a few years or so after the original story.
    Include more iconic enemies (Mets from Megaman, Bokoblins from Zelda, all kinds of Pokemon, Ghosts from PAC-MAN, all sorts of Eggman's robots from Sonic, etc)
    Make some of the levels a little less maze-like.
    Have a little more voice acting to add some spice-"Kept you waiting, huh?" is one of my favorite lines in videogames, and I don't even know what a Metal Gear Solid is.
    Finally, include an RPG system, where you get stronger as you go on. This would make every collectible feel that much more important and give more reason to fight instead of running away. You could even choose to have a skill tree or Spirits like WoL (though Spirits would have to be balanced a bit so you don't just power through every enemy effortlessly).
    I'll get some flack for this, but I really couldn't care less about the environments in 2D Mario. Grass, Dessert, Ice, Beach/Forest, Lava. They've all blended together and at this point (unless we're talking about 64 or Odyssey) I don't care about the Mushroom Kingdom or its surrounding areas. Even the ghosts houses, generally very unique environments, have become bland and uninspired, using the same design since SMW. I would really like to see some variety in the worlds these games put out. They've made some short lived attempts, which I appreciate, and those end up being some of my favorite levels of the bunch. If and when Nintendo makes a 2D game that isn't Mario Maker, I really hope they try something new for the environments, and maybe even the gameplay, considering it's stayed mostly the same since the first New game.
    Sorry about bashing on these games. I love them, I really do. I just want to get excited about their worlds again, the way I got excited about Odyssey's kingdoms.

    That's the problem with the NSMB series really. Everything's the same. Plot: Bowser captures Peach. Levels: As you mentioned. Bosses: Koopalings, who are samey in one game, let alone 3. Plot twist: Bowser gets big. Characters: Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Toads, Peach, Bowser, Jr., Koopalings, 1 Mini Boss, Enemies. I just hope 1: the next 2D game is different, and 2: future 3D games don't suffer the same fate
    Janx_uwu
    Janx_uwu
    Yeah. I don't have a problem with the first four games nearly as much, since it was just starting up (1, 3 and World). But besides the graphical overhaul and a couple of new power ups, it's the same Mario. Not that the base formula of those games should change, but they've done the bare minimum to keep it slightly interesting. New characters, stages, gimmicks, plots, etc. would really help, like you said. It's become this thing where they lean on their original 2D games to keep them afloat. Well, at least that doesn't keep the 3D games from evolving, unlike some other franchise I know.

    Yeah, the worlds in the 3D Mario games are a lot more creative and innovative than the worlds in 2D Mario games. The Galaxy games especially show this.

    Mario 3D All Stars better move over.

    I'll do YOU one better: High-Speed trilogy mentioned above releases about the same time as Sonic Jam 2, sans Chaotix and with 3D Blast added (giving the option to have a homing attack at all times that can be turned off). Sonic Gems 2 comes out later, with Chaotix, Chaos, Triple Trouble, Segasonic The Hedgehog, R, The Fighters, and Blast.
    Next year we get the Boost Trilogy (Unleashed, Colors, Generations) plus later on the GBA collection (Advance 1, 2, 3, Battle). DS collection later on (Rush trilogy). Finally to top it all off, a Dark Ages collection (Shadow, Riders, 06, Storybook games). Obviously some of these collections would be priced more or less depending on the games and how much of an improvement they are over the originals.
    This is never gonna happen, but man, imagine being able to play all of Sonic's history on your switch.

    Sadly no. But Sonic Twitter has been dropping some hints, including Adventure memes and artwork, so maybe...
    I have zero inside information (and wouldn't want it, anyways) but I feel extremely confident in this.

    I'll admit I'm also not one for Geno hype-but I mean, just look at the support thread. Something that'd make that many people happy would be fine with me.
    On the subject of 2nd Sonic character speculation in Ultimate, here are my thoughts:
    Shadow is my most wanted, and his odds certainly aren't bad. He's the second most popular character in the franchise and, at least from what I've seen, the most highly requested Sonic character. He's also Takashi Iizuka's (head of Sonic Team) favorite character, so if Sakurai was just going to include Iizuka's favorite character, it would be Shadow. Shadow is pretty similar to Sonic (so he'd be easier to develop than a newer character) while also having more than enough differences from Sonic for a moveset of his own (so fewer people get upset over buying an echo or semi-echo, which Shadow wouldn't be if he were in fp2 as a CP). Alternatively, they can make him a non-challenger pack character but he would be an echo without a stage or music-though I'd at least like to see Throw It All Away make an appearance. The biggest thing holding Shadow back are being an Assist Trophy, but since Min Min broke that spirit rule mere months ago, I think Shadow could do the same. Another thing is that if he was to be an echo, Metal Sonic would be the much more obvious choice.
    Dr. Eggman, however, has just as much of a chance as Shadow, if not more. He's one of the few characters that returns for every installment, even when the series tries to completely reboot or reinvent itself. He was the very second Sonic character and arguably the first if you count his developing stages, where he was originally pitched as Sega's new mascot before Sonic was a thing. He's more important to the series than any of the other characters I mention here and has more moveset potential as well (imo). He's an extremely expressive character which would make his taunts and animations an absolute delight, and his many appearances throughout the franchise mean he won't really upset many Sonic fans with his inclusion alone. The biggest thing holding him back-well, if I'm being honest, Shadow and Bowser Jr. Shadow is the more heavily requested character from what I've seen, but that's not a huge deal, Sakurai won't choose a character on want alone (correct me if I'm wrong). Bowser Jr, is a weird case, because he also possesses a flying fortress (no pun intended) that has various tools coming out of it to attack his opponent-which is more or less how I'd imagine Eggman. They have more than enough material to make him different, but the fact that BJ already has a flying automobile of his own might ward Sakurai off of making a moveset for Eggman, fearing they would be too similar. Still, my bet's on Eggman.
    Knuckles is like Shadow, where both are assist trophies that share traits with Sonic in thier games. Knuckles has lots of potential for a moveset, where he'd be a kind of glass canon that deals lots of damage but dies just as early as Sonic. He has things like the glide, melee attacks, and climb to differentiate himself from Sonic. I don't possess strong feelings for Knux as a fighter one way or another, but he would be a logical choice to please the majority of the fanbase (as Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario said in a profile post a while back). Knuckles is a wise choice, but I think he has the least chance of these four characters.
    Tails is the strangest case. He's similar to Sonic, but more so is Shadow. He's a very early character in the series, but Eggman is earlier. He's a friend of Sonic's, but so is Knuckles and Shadow. He has lots of moveset potential, but so do Shadow and Eggman. I can totally see Sakurai going for Tails if he's aiming for protagonists only, because while Shadow and Knuckles are also protagonists they are also Sonic's rivals, plus Tails is Sonic's best friend. As it stands I also don't have strong feelings for Tails but would love it if he got in, as I would with any other Sonic character. He doesn't have much holding him back, apart from the "Sega has three reps" argument, which also applies to everyone else here.
    I still think that there should be a second Sonic rep-I know Sega has three reps, but Sonic is one of the most influential icons of the 90's and has one of the strongest followings as well as one of the biggest hate trains of gaming. Not to mention his 30th anniversary is next year, which would be the perfect time to announce one of these characters for a Challenger Pack.
    Anyways, that's what I think. Might put this in Newcomer Speculation as well.
    I can never understand how some people function with more than six or seven tabs open at once-though I applaud them. Just looking at those things squished together gives me stress on its own.

    I don't function, really. A lot of the time, I just leave them for days, and I end up closing them without giving them full attention. Multi-tasking is a really bad habit.

    Contrary to popular belief, you can be productive and still get nothing done.

    I can only have 3 tabs open on desktop at max before starting to mentally go insane. Same applies to mobile (iPhones in particular), and even more so when people leave over 15-20 apps running at once (my mother does this). Drives me crazy.

    Now imagine me having to do a college project or essay, and having to cite sources.
    Janx_uwu
    Janx_uwu
    God, been there. Not for college-haven’t made it there yet-but citing sources using a laptop in and of itself is a pain.
    So, I was curious about what Yuji Naka did between leaving Sega and joining Square, and apparently one of the things he made was a multimedia project called "Sega Hard Girls" (collaberation with Sega) that "re-imagines various Sega video game consoles as anthropomorphized goddesses who appear all over modern Japan". Quote came from the Wikipedia article.

    Ah. Yeah, I saw they had a crossover game with it. And now that I'm looking into Neptunia...yeah, this is one heck of a rabbit hole. Will definitely look into this some more when I've got a day away from online classes.
    Apparently #cancelsonictwitter is now tending because a fangame creator is allowing optional donations from players for financial support and people are taking that as “profiting off of an existing IP.”
    If you ask me, though, it seems like Sonic fans and haters alike are using it as an excuse to hate on the Sonic franchise. Some people are using the hashtag without having the faintest idea of its origin.
    I’m baffled.

    Yeah, a lot of the characters from that game are based off of other fighting game characters (Metal=Wolverine and Blaze=Akuma for example). I don’t know if I would want those characters specifically as playable but it’s if the game had assists they would certainly fit right in.

    The 3D Mario All-Stars thing exists, but it sure comes with an expiration date and not a ton of changes to the games themselves. So maybe this is Sega’s opportunity to reveal that Sonic Adventure remake they’ve been hinting at. It would certainly brighten their image if they announced game that’s rebuilt from the ground up, with additions to improve gameplay experience, and a run of the game that isn’t limited.
    ...or just rerelease three Sonic games on modern hardware. That would also work.

    But at least imo, as much as I love 3, I think SA is the game that could benefit more from a remake from the ground up. But seeing as Sega is using cutscenes from 3 again, a modern console rerelease may not be so far away.
    Wario Wario Wario
    Wario Wario Wario
    Yeah, as a non-fan of Adventure, that game needs a remake more given Sonic 2 and 3 have aged like a fine wine, while Adventure is... an early 3D game.

    Yep! I think they nailed Sonic well, and it feels like a natural evolution from 2D, but his friends...less so. Not to mention the awful camera and cutscenes.
    My god, the cutscenes.

    I think it would be hilarious if Nintendo faked us out in a Direct with Super Mario All-Stars...the original one, for SNES NSO. And then revealed the 3D collection right after.
    Maria’s death in SA2 seems pretty pointless when you consider anyone can be revived with the Chaos Emeralds.
    Had some free time on my hands earlier in the year, so I did this. Very pleased with how it’s coming out!
    Sonic Adventure 2 is a good game and I am willing to defend it until the day I die.

    I haven’t actually tried that one before.
    But yeah, the biggest complaint I see about SA2 are the mech and treasure hunting stages. I find them to be fun after going in and doing the missions. The treasure hunting stages focus on exploration and knowing the ins and outs of the level to beat it in record time, which is what I loved about the classic games (and yeah, I do like those better than Adventure style ones). Mechs are a bit weirder, you like them if you like them. More about going slow and knowing enemy placements.

    I really like how Nintendo used the B button for Min Min-not just your standard four special attacks. It would be cool if they did it again in the future-for example, if Madeline were to get in, maybe the B button would just be her dash, and she could use it in 8 different directions.
    Should I feel bad for using Google as a tool when I’m trying to 100% a game-in this case, Celeste?

    No. From what I've seen, the items in Celeste are extremely well-hidden - I beat the game (or at least reached the credits - I definitely wasn't going to aim for 100% completion), and I didn't see any of the items that were needed to unlock chapter 8.

    I wasn’t aware of how much it sold or anything-yeah, I wouldn’t expect it to do well either if that’s how the first game performed. And since that probably won’t happen, I’ll be praying for a revival of the dead series in Nintendo’s catalogue.
    Sonic Generations for 3DS was probably the weirdest Sonic game I played outside of 06. It features levels different from the console versions-Mushroom Hill and Radical Highway, for example-no cutscenes, no side quest missions, no Super Sonic except for the end fight, and for whatever reason they gave Classic Sonic a homing attack. Not an unenjoyable game by any means-but an odd tidbit of Sonic history.

    I bought it back at the start of 2011, for a 3DS. Not only was the game not out for PC yet, but then I also lacked a PS3 and a good computer. I never actually beaten it, but it was pretty neat for the little I've played. Started getting pretty interesting by around Emerald Coast, and I started trying to beat my marks, just for fun.

    I actually prefer the 3DS in some ways-like for the better Sonic Colors stage. But I’d undoubtedly pick the console version over the handheld one.
    Doing my first crew battle this Saturday-does anyone know how they work or have any tips for participating?
    Well, it happened again. I felt really confident about myself competitively, and some random opponent destroys all of my stocks while I’m playing my best.
    Ever since I started playing competitive Smash last year, I’ve wanted to go PGR, maybe even top 8. But I’m also fourteen, and with the recent scandals, I don’t know if I’ll muster up the courage to return to locals.

    Chances are your locals don't have any offenders, but if they do, report them to the TO and they should ban them. In case the TO refuses to, you should probably switch to a different local.
