  • An avatar change? I. am. flabbergasted.

    Haha yeah, I don't change it often, but it's roughly a month until Halloween and I figured I'd borrow a joke from Baby Driver.

    Baby Driver gets a thumbs up from me. I guess I was just so surprised since I've always associated you with Dr. Doom, so when I noticed your name and didn't see Doom above it, I. Was. Flabbergasted.
    After looking up who the characters are for the new Suicide Squad movie, I am convinced that Firestorm has the lamest rogues' gallery in existence. He seems to be a living sun that can warp matter however he sees fit (as long as he knows the chemical formula), and his opponents are... Killer Frost, Slipknot (who has ropes), and Weasel (who's a man with all of the powers of a weasel).

    Also, I feel like the Polka-Dot Man is going to be an unexpected highlight of the movie.
    Just found out about the Direct, and the fact that there's no unannounced games, along with it being ten minutes long.

    No idea why they're even doing a Direct, in that case. At best, I feel like it's going to be 2-3 trailers and the announcement of some release dates for games like No More Heroes 3 or Doom Eternal. Even then, that seems optimistic, unless the Direct's closer to 12 or 14 minutes.

    Here's hoping we get a Bayonetta 3 trailer, or some kind of Smash news, even if it's a short trailer with no gameplay like what Joker initially got. (I just don't want it to be another guessing game) I just find it weird that Nintendo seemingly had no plans for E3, or no apparent plans for any first party titles for the rest of the year. (E3's usually the time that they'd announce their plans for the rest of the year, and it seems telling that Nintendo itself has nothing)

    Edit: a Persona 5 Scramble release date for outside of Japan would be nice, though. My hopes are a Bayo 3 trailer, release dates for No More Heroes 3/Doom Eternal/Persona 5 Scramble, and (depending on whether or not the Smash devs count as partner studios) a Smash teaser. I doubt we'll get all of those, but hopefully we get one or two of them.
    ayyy is that Alexandra Roivas in your sig? CULTURE. (plus I share her first name irl)

    Yep! I wrote a moveset for her, though I posted it in the Pious Augustus thread since I don't think we have a dedicated thread for her. The picture acts as a link to it.

    Eternal Darkness is one of the few horror games that I've played and enjoyed (not sure if Resident Evil 4 or 5 count as horror), and the studio that made it was actually a few hours away from where I live before it closed down. (I never went there, but it surprised me to learn that it was so close)

    it's too bad we'll never get a sequel... it ended on the perfect hook :c i LOVED the sanity mechanic too
    Megadoomer

    Yeah, it's unfortunate, though at least it works well as a self contained title. From what I've read about how Silicon Knights violently imploded after splitting off from Nintendo, it might be for the best. Still, Nintendo keeps renewing the trademark for the game and its sanity mechanics, so hopefully we can get a sequel by Retro or Next Level Games at some point!
    I beat Donkey Kong Country - this was my first time playing through the whole game. (before this, I had a hand-me-down cart that had already been beaten, so I didn't have much of a reason to play through the game myself since I could jump straight to the final boss)

    It was tough but fair, and grinding for lives definitely helped. (whenever I get back to playing Crash 1 or 2, I'll keep that in mind)
    Once I've beaten Bug Fables, I'm not sure if I should play Halo 1, Skyrim, or Heavy Rain next; I haven't played any of those games, though for Halo 1, I've got a rough idea of what happens since I've played Halo 3, 4, and Reach.

    Glad you're enjoying Bug Fables, I loved it to bits. Played it for 40 hours or so.
    I recently played Reach, 1, and 2 in order, I think it was super fun. Looking forward to playing Halo 3 when it drops in about a week.
    Hello, Megadoomer. If you don't mind me asking, is it possible for me to be the new owner of the Mona for Smash thread? The original owner hasn't been around for a long while and I don't know when they plan to return (if ever). I'd take over the thread, but I don't know who to ask to transfer ownership...
    Megadoomer
    Megadoomer
    I'll have to look through your posts - in order to do that, you'll have to have a post from before the thread was made for me to move into the Mona thread. If I find one, I'll make the change and let you know.

    My mod powers are limited exclusively to the Smash Ultimate character forums, so I'm somewhat limited in terms of what I can do. However, this post: https://smashboards.com/threads/hi-everybody.445202/post-21639707 is older than the Mona thread, so that could be moved into it to act as the new intro post. You'll likely have to get in touch with an admin (see here: https://smashboards.com/members/?key=staff_members one of the people with a grey name) to get it moved. I don't know if you want the original intro post copied into this new one, or if you want to make it from scratch.

    Ah, I see. Well, if that's the case, I'd simply like my post to be copied into the original post. I'd rather not totally undo all the work the original owner put into the OP.
    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)

    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)

    I would be interested.

    Don't expect criticism doh as I'm overall a person who is fine with anyone wanting whoever they want.
    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)
    I played a bit of Saint's Row 4 to get a few achievements that I missed out on in my co-op playthrough. There's something hilarious about ragdolling around the city to commit insurance fraud while Aerosmith is blaring in the background: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us3cGQs0Q8A
    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
