  • I typed up a Dante moveset - https://smashboards.com/threads/keepin-it-in-style-dante-for-smash-ultimate.446379/post-23995463

    Thankfully, it isn't as insanely long as my first attempt, since I worked under the assumption that he'd stick with his basic sword and two guns combo as opposed to going into weapon switching like before. Plus, I managed to include Style Switching, which I somehow didn't include in my first moveset. (in my defense, I had only played DMC1-3 at the time)

    My heart says Dante, but my gut says Monster Hunter.
    Tempted to come up with my top 50 most-wanted character list to pass the time and try thinking outside the box when it comes to character selection. (I find that my top ten list hasn't really changed much in the past year or so) Would anyone be interested in reading that sort of thing? (I'd likely try to provide a reason, or reasons, why I want to see them in Smash, so that there's more to it than just listing characters)
    Congrats to all of the Min Min fans out there! This opens up a lot of doors for speculation (spirits don't disqualify characters; the first character in a series doesn't necessarily have to be the main character, mascot, or face of the game), so I'll be interested to see where this goes!

    Shame about Heihachi (assuming that Mii costumes rule a character out, though it would be hard to confuse Heihachi with his Mii costume), but now Min Min's opened up the door for the best Tekken character: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esYDLlIYRPE (just kidding; not overly familiar with Tekken, but Heihachi would still be my preference)
    I just got ending B in Nier Automata. Most of it was a retread of Ending A's story, at least until the very end. The point where the stories diverged had some pretty interesting reveals, and I'm interested to see where it's going to go for Endings C, D, and E.
    I feel like doing something creative. As much as I'd like to try my hand at making a Youtube video, I'd have no idea where to start (and I hate the sound of my voice when it's recorded, though I suppose I could make it like a slideshow), so I think I'm going to try working on Dragon Ball and One Piece MUGEN characters.

    Yes, I realize that seemingly everyone who's tried MUGEN has made a Dragon Ball character, and the result was usually insanely broken, but I'm a sucker for crossovers, and both series have a game with the same art style. (Arc System Works also made a Fist of the North Star game for the PS2, but unfortunately, the sprites are MUCH bigger than the One Piece and Dragon Ball ones)
    I played my first game of Predator: Hunting Grounds as the Predator. (I've done a few matches as the fireteam - the addition of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character was a very easy way to convince me to play the game) It was fun, even though I felt like I was lacking options (I can't wait to unlock the bow, as well as gear to make tracking the fireteam easier), and my only ranged weapon (the shoulder cannon) is extremely visible. Still, I downed two members of the fireteam despite my inexperience, and killed three by self-destructing, so I'd say it went well.

    Illfonic did a great job with making the game fun to play for both sides of an asymmetrical multiplayer game, which from what I've seen is tough to do. The Predator seems a little underpowered (against an experienced team, it seems more like the Predator is the one running in fear), but maybe that changes as you get more gear for him or her.
    I beat Doom Eternal and Kirby Planet Robobot today. Both games were a ton of fun, and I'm tempted to 100% complete them.

    However, doing that for Doom Eternal would mean playing online, which I'm hesitant about - I'm only counting Steam achievements for completion, so no Ultra Nightmare for me, thankfully. For Kirby, I'm hoping that the in-game completion percentage doesn't count stickers, because that's pure randomness as far as I can tell.
    I beat Doom Eternal! It was a lot of fun, though it was harder than Doom 2016, the Marauders were just frustrating (there were points in the final level where they'd just run around with their shields up without attacking, making them immune to direct damage), and the final boss was a bit of a slog.

    Still, the challenges were fun, I got all of the story mode achievements, and I'm looking forward to replaying levels with cheats on or trying out the multiplayer. (It seemed more interesting than Doom 2016's, even though my matches tended to last about 30 seconds when I tried it earlier since at least one person that I was matched up with had beaten the game on Ultra Nightmare)
    Finished Little Garden in my One Piece re-read, and I made it to the start of Drum Island. I really hope that there's a story arc in Elbaf at some point.

    Also, I was confused at first why Dorry and Broggy only had bounties of 100 million Berries when they would have to go backwards through the New World to get to Little Garden, before I realized that their time as pirates happened LONG before Roger's death and the dramatic increase of pirates in the Grand Line. (100 million Berries might have been a massive reward roughly 80 years before Roger's death, and they haven't left Little Garden since then)
    Taking this time to re-read One Piece. I'm not going to go too in-depth on my thoughts once I get to later arcs, since even the identity of at least one of the Straw Hats is a major spoiler if someone hasn't read/watched the series and wants to give it a shot, but I've just finished Usopp's introduction arc.

    Despite people saying that the series gets good at Arlong, these earlier chapters have held up really well in my opinion, with some scenes (like Chou Chou trying to fight Mohji, or Usopp trying to stop the pirates from getting into town) being downright heartbreaking.

    Next up: the introduction of Johnny and Yosaku, and arriving at the Baratie. This is roughly the point where I got hooked on the series, so it will be interesting to read it again after so long.

    Don Krieg was a underrated antagonist. He had a fleet similar in numbers to a Yonko if I'm not mistaken and they all got rekt by Mihawk. I literally think Krieg should have been introduced much later in the series as a powerful captain in the New World instead of just being big fish in a small pond such as the East Blue.

    I've made it to the fights in the Arlong arc. I really wish that Nezumi got a worse punishment, because he was such a scumbag. Nami's flashback holds up well, even after seeing so many other tragic flashbacks.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Well, Nezumi was the one that told the Marines to put a bounty on his head so every bounty hunter in the East Blue would go after him. I believe he told them to find out everything that they can about Strawhat Luffy and make sure his name is infamous throughout the entire East Blue. So I think he is just a corrupted Marine in a small pond that won't be bothered unless a higher ranking Marine that has similar ideals to Smoker, Akoji, and Sengoku sees his corrupted evil ways, report, and demotes him.
    I've beaten Ocarina of Time for the first time! Ganon's Castle was a great way to finish the game off, and even when knowing what to do, Ganon was still intimidating. (Though since I had the Biggoron's Sword, the extra range made the tennis part much easier than it was against Phantom Ganon)
    Nearly done with the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time. Glad that I used a guide, because there are a handful of keys in locations that I wouldn't have thought to check, and it seems like it would be frustrating to recall where the rooms that change the water levels are, let alone figuring out when to change them or what level to change them to.

    I'm playing it through the Gamecube Collector's Edition - I know that the 3DS version makes some changes to make the entire dungeon much easier, but I don't have that.

    It's not my first time playing the game, though I haven't beaten it before. In previous attempts, I got stuck in the Water Temple by trying to beat it without a guide (in the days before tablets and accessing the internet through your phone were things), or I lost track of where I was supposed to go in the Spirit Temple.

    I had a save file from the Spirit Temple, but I figured it was best to start fresh. (and I'm glad that I did, since I got the Biggoron's Sword, among other things)

    I think that later part of the game is amazing with the Shadow Temple, Spirit Temple, and Ganon's Tower. At that point **** get's real. I think you will be amazed at seeing inside of Ganon's Tower for the first time. It's truly a memorable experience.

    Looking forward to it!
    Made a decent amount of progress in Ocarina of Time today - I beat the Forest and Fire Temples, completed the trading side quest for Biggoron's Sword (which is the first time that I've done that, I think), and got the Iron Boots and all of the tunics. Tomorrow, I'll be going through the Water Temple, which I am definitely using a guide for.
    Oz o:

    yeh the Water Temple always sucks. I used a guide for everything back when I first played it.
    Just watched the Venom movie; it was better than I thought. (compared to Fant4stic, which was worse than I thought) Still wish that they picked a different colour for the villain than "dark gray" - having him fight Venom at night made it tougher to tell who was who. I'd be interested in watching a sequel, at least on a cheap night at the theater.
    I think I'm going to sit down and play Ocarina of Time. Not sure if I'll pick up where I left off or start fresh, but I want to play through the full game, even if I've probably seen the entire thing in bits and pieces by watching others play it.

    It's worth the play but don't force yourself if you get bored during a playthrough.
    A lot of people force themselves to sit through a movie, book or in this case a video game just because it's a "classic", we all have our own classics after all.... But yeah anyways, OOT is really good :v

    OnyanRings OnyanRings oh, I've got no concerns about whether or not I'll like it - I remember enjoying what I've played. It's mainly two temples that I have trouble with - the Water Temple and the one in the desert.
    The latest update for Windows 10 seems to have broken Windows 10. Among other issues, everything in the My Documents, My Pictures, etc. folders seems to have vanished.

    Turns out that it's treating my main/only account as a new one, though the files are still in the computer, thankfully. Between this and Persona 4, I'm going to try to make back-ups more often in case something like this happens for real.
    My copy of One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 came in! I'm looking forward to playing it - I don't have much experience with the Warriors series (it's mainly Hyrule Warriors and the two Fist of the North Star games), so I'm looking forward to playing that and Persona 5 Scramble (whenever the latter is released outside of Japan)
    I lost about 30 hours of progress on my Persona 4 save due to a glitch of some sort where one of my save files was deleted. I'll have to replay three dungeons.

    However, I should be able to get through it quicker this time since I don't need to read the dialogue and I have a better idea of how to upgrade my social stats and Social Links.
    I beat Naoto's dungeon in Persona 4, so once Naoto recovers, I should have access to every single party member! (unless there's an extra hidden character like in Chrono Trigger) Enjoying the game so far - the bosses seem tougher than in Persona 5, and I'm having trouble with finding some of the Social Links, but I've maxed out the links for Yosuke, Chie, Nanako, and Dojima, so that should make things easier.
    Made it over halfway through the fourth dungeon of Persona 4. It seems more difficult than the last two (enemies are roughly five levels higher than my party and hit like a truck, especially when they use a spell called Megido), though I took a break to upgrade my team's equipment. Hopefully that helps.
    I'm in the lead-up to the fourth dungeon for Persona 4. The game's acting like this is the climax, but that's obviously not the case for a bunch of reasons. (chief among them - I know that Naoto joins the party and that hasn't happened yet)
    Watching the Godfather Part 2 for the first time - Robert De Niro is practically unrecognizable as Don Corleone, at least to me. (I haven't watched his earlier movies)

    The movie has an intermission, which seems unusual.

    I liked the movie, though it felt less focused than the original.
    I'm tempted to get Doom Eternal and/or Ori and the Will of the Wisps, since I loved Doom (2016) and Ori and the Blind Forest. However, I'm not sure if I should wait for a Switch version or not. (I could probably double dip on Ori since it's $40 on Steam and a Switch version hasn't even been announced, but Doom Eternal is $80 before tax and I need to watch my spending)

    I completely forgot that the Switch version of Doom Eternal wouldn't be released at the same time as the other versions. Before the game got delayed the Switch version would've been released alongside the other versions simultaneously.

    Why do you want the Switch version so much? It'll have worse performance (look worse and/or lower resolution, potentially longer loading times) than other platforms.
    Either way, Ori isn't currently known to be coming to Switch anytime soon to my knowledge, so you may be safer getting that on XB1/PC instead.
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    Strong Badam Strong Badam I don't have an Xbox One or PS4, and I tend not to worry about graphical quality beyond a certain point. (I don't really notice that sort of thing - Doom (2016) ran pretty similarly on the PC and Switch, from what I recall, with only one or two points of slowdown on the Switch, though I think I had the graphical settings for Doom on medium for the PC) I might pick up Ori, though.
    Megadoomer Megadoomer yeah. I really want to see Smoothie in action in a fight against Zoro or somebody else.
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    Here's hoping she gets to do something. So far, she's supposedly on par with Cracker and Katakuri, but Oda's done nothing to show that.

    I don't think she'll fight Zoro, though; I figure he's going to fight King, and having him fight two Commanders in quick succession is a bit much. I could see her fighting Robin or Jinbei, though.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I heard Oda said in a Vivre Card that Smoothie is really powerful and he didn't have enough time to showcase her in action during the Whole Cake Island arc and said he wish he did. Hopefully we will get to see her kick some *** in Wano. Jinbei vs Smoothie would be amazing actually.
    I just watched One Piece: Stampede and Citizen Kane tonight. Two VERY different movies, to say the least. Citizen Kane was, obviously, the better movie (it's the Citizen Kane of movies!), but One Piece was more fun, especially as a long-time fan of the series.
    I just got One Piece Stampede on BluRay! Between that, and One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 coming out next week, it's a good time to be a One Piece fan. (though there is a break this week for the manga, but the newest chapter was pretty good)
    I REALLY want to play Doom Eternal after how much I enjoyed Doom (both the 2016 and 1993 games), but I'm going to wait for the Switch version rather than double dipping (as long as the Switch version is on a cartridge instead of the physical version being a code in a box), so I'll play Doom 2 instead.
    Does anyone have recommendations for gaming Youtubers? I figure I should try to broaden my horizons beyond the handful of Youtubers that I follow. (Game Grumps, the Completionist, Dunkey, Maximilian Dood, Achievement Hunter/Let's Play/Funhaus, Alpharad)
    I beat Shadow Kanji in Persona 4, who was tough, but easier than the first boss. I also played a bit of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, meeting Vandham. Between those two games, that should give me plenty to do in order to get through these 2-3 weeks off.
    I beat Link's Awakening! That leaves me with four physical Switch games that I own but haven't beaten. (Or, in the case of collections, that I haven't beaten at least one game in - I'll try Crash 1 and 2 eventually, but the levels that I was stuck on were frustrating) - Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Final Fantasy X (and X-2), Collection of Mana, and Astral Chain.

    Not sure which I'll focus on first; for FF10, I wanted to beat FF9 first, but I don't necessarily have to.
    Playing A Hat In Time on the Switch. Loading times are terrible, and many of the images are poor quality jpegs (particularly with Mustache Girl's plan and the loading screen) but once the game actually loads, it's a lot of fun.
    Watching Casablanca at the moment. I've never seen it before, but I can see why it's viewed so highly. Plus, it's interesting to watch it knowing that was made when Nazis were still occupying France, especially with the La Marseillaise scene. (so satisfying to watch the Nazis get a giant metaphorical middle finger, and the actors did a great job, even the extras)
