  • So how many bucks for betting that Smahboard's prank of this year will be related to Mario's "Death"
    Now, i'm not an "Animu artstyle Hater" (i did enjoy Pyra being announced, best character DLC since Banjo) but i do wonder How the people that vehemently throw mud at "Anime JRPG Rep haters" and defend these characters would react if Fighter Pass was:

    -Bandanna Dee.
    -Min Min.
    -Dixie Kong.
    I don't prefer anything about this over what we got.

    You know i made this list as a 1-minute throwaway coment but i really start to feel like i would have preferred this over the actual DLC.
    You know, I love Smash and have been playing the games since Melee's release, but I think Ultimate will be my last rodeo at least speculation wise.

    Nintendo's base roster picks in Smash 4 and Ultimate were all pretty good while the DLC lineup in either games wasn't that interesting as Mewtwo returning in Smash 4 and Banjo & Kazooie and Sephiroth in Ultimate were the only DLC fighters I wanted or was interested in thus far. I see more promotional picks in the DLC lineup than per say fan favorites. Not to say Joker, Hero, Terry or Steve ain't popular picks because they're, but because most of the DLC fighters and even some of the base game fighters are just there to promote their games which is why Nintendo and these 3rd party companies choose those certain characters.

    I don't have it in me to go another round of speculation during Smash 6 and even if I did, I wouldn't be around for DLC speculation for that game. Melee gave me Ganondorf, Mewtwo and Bowser. Brawl gave me Meta Knight and King Dedede. Smash 4 gave me Bowser Jr., Duck Hunt and gave me back Mewtwo. Ultimate gave me K. Rool, Ridley, Banjo & Kazooie and Sephiroth. There's a lot more characters I would love to see in Smash especially and most notably Goemon, Krystal and Dixie Kong, but I'm getting tired of waiting for certain characters I've wanted for so many years as I waited since Melee for K. Rool, Ridley and Banjo & Kazooie. When Smash 6 comes around, I just going to play it and not take part in any kind of Smash speculation anymore.
    Im all for characters playing with the movesetes from their source material (Simon, Mega Man) but i draw the line when they bring major mechanics and try to implement complex mechanics like Magic Resources and Jesus Christ why did Sakurai had to put SF1 mechanics in Ryu and Ken there's a ****ing reason ALL SF games after 1 use a 6 button layout instead of 2 pressure sensitive buttons.

    and less said about Steve, the better.
    By next year, the Wii U will be a decade old. and this year Melee becomes Twenty Years old.
    The Wii U is 9 years old?

    I feel old now.
    I feel freaking old. I remember Melee was my first Smash game and I remember playing it around launch back in 2001. It was the first time I was introduce to franchises like Metroid, Star Fox, Kirby, Mother, F-Zero, Fire Emblem, ect. It blew my mind away. Before playing Melee, the only franchises I knew about or played games from in it were Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, and Donkey Kong. Everything else was new to me and all the characters from the other franchises excluding the 4 I mentioned above were strangers to me. Oh how the time flies.

    Me reading this post.
    Merry Christmas you filthy animals.
    BlameitonJorge's Lost Media Iceberg video:


    -Chris Farley as Shrek

    This is not me trying to pull a "Arson, Muder and Jaywalking" joke, it literally goes like that.

    Next time try to divide the "lost fiction like games and films and shows" Lost media and " Footage of real horrifying events not made public" Lost Media. It's really akward to bounce between one and the other like that.
    "Lost Footage" would probably be a more appropriate phrase.
    Deleted member
    I did know quite a bit on what was on that iceberg already, I'm big into that sort of stuff. Although the "medieval found footage" part really intrigued me a lot by how odd it was.

    For the record, a lot of icebergs are lot like that. It just gets messy, especially towards the end when it straight up becomes conspiracy crap, instead of factual stuff. Heck, even the original SM64 iceberg had the conspiracy theories right next to the real entries. I'm not a fan of that iceberg in particular, I prefer the ones that are actually true.
    Regardless of if they're real or not, I'm going to keep watching 'iceberg explained' videos, I kinda love them in a weird way. Though some are definitely better than others.
    The greatest tragedy in gaming is that we will never know the artist behind Castlevania X68k's Cover Art. That Cover Art has my favorite depiction of Simon ever. Even more so than Ultimate's version which is a very close second:

    I would pay some money to see this artist give us more Art of this particular Simon plus some other characters of the franchise.
    It's weird. Despite my having a huge dislike over Kojima's redhead Simon, it's the only redesign by Ayami Kojima that i actively dislike. The others i like just fine (Richter, Dracula) and others i find superior over the original (Alucard) but Simon? no thanks please stick to Classic Barbarian thanks. It's why im really happy about his implementation in Smash, best design of the newcomer roster in my opinion.
    I don't mind it, mainly because it's somehow better than the Lords of Shadow and Judgement (totally-not-Light-Yagami) versions.
    Fans of Ecchi stuff like Senran Kagura basically use the "You need a very High IQ to understand Rick and Morty" copypasta Meme, but unironically.
    If the Melee intro's 3 characters are any indication, im pretty sure if F-Zero survived after FX we would have gotten Samurai Goroh in the roster. Ridley and Wolf got in, and the only reason i see Goroh beign stuck to AT is because his series died.
    The Wonder Boy games from Monster Land onwards feel like what a non-gamer would desribe old school games, beign this weird platformer-adventure hybrid. Im not saying this in a bad way though.

    I wish Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest aged as Gracefully as Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap, that game shows even if it lacks depth in equipment and/or lenght you can still have a fun 8-bit Pseudo-Non-Linear adventure game.
    If the Netflix staff couldn't figure out a way to fit Grant into Castlevania 3's adaptation then i guess it's fair to say Maria Renard is pretty much gonna sit on the sidelines for the Rondo of Blood adaptation.
    Nathan Graves is lowkey the most underrated Castlevania protag ever. Both in powers and design.

    Not only is he one of the most versatile CV heroes out there using CARDS of all things to make some crazy spells, His design looks great and manages to distance itself from the barbaric look of the earlier Belmonts without looking unnecessarily effeminate gothic guy like many of Ayami Kojima's characters designs (who i always found to be an overrated artist as much as Amano) I always though Kazuko Fujihara was a more appropiate evolution of the Castlevania series arstyle in my opinion.

    If there was a Castlevania Warriors, he would be in my top Five Alongside Simon, Grant Dantasty, Frankenstien's Monster and Soma (i never said that i hated all of Ayami's characters's)
    Try guessing the name of the game with this clue:

    "I beat two giant Zombie Dragons who are damage sponges, and all i got was the ability to push crates"
    I feel like it's a Metroid-based Castlevania game - my first thought was Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, but being able to push crates was given by a different boss, not the two giant dragons. (unless you're playing the Randomizer)

    Wrong, It's Castlevania: Circle of the Moon on the GBA. Zombie Dragon is the reason why i never beat this game years ago.
    I always like it when a "Scrappy" character gets a sudden popularity boost, either because of beign vindicated by history, growing a loyal fanbase, or even because of Memes.

    As someone who roots for the underdog, i hope the likes of Grant Danasty and the US Sports Team get this.

    I wish Goemon would gain a big supportive movement in the Smash community. Seeing Goemon become a fighter in Smash is my Ultimate dream and him getting a Mii costume is the first step. I really want him to get in some day so the Ganbare Goemon/Mystical Ninja franchise finally get's the recognition and attention it deserves in the west.
    I love Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled mainly because it did this for more obscure characters like Rilla Roo and Yaya Panda.
    The Virgin New Face Team:
    -Name literally stopped making sense after KOF 97.
    -Are actually a bunch of evil assholes who want to destroy humanity.
    -Only entered KOF out of jealousy because their concert got cucked by Iori Yagami.
    -Probably don't train that much and rely only on their Orochi strenght.
    -Have control over the elments, yet still lost to an angry school boi, Sernan Kagura, and the redhead who cucked them
    -Team Composed of a Shota, a Thot, and a White Haired weirdo.
    -Never entered a KOF tournament legally, stole somone else's invitation because they didn't knew KOF was about to begin.
    -Chris is Swede, you probably didn't knew becuase he instead looks like the "Virgin" guy.
    -Managed to revive their god, still lost.

    -Name perfectly describes them.
    -Are actually a bunch of cool dudes who just want to have fun.
    -Entered KOF to prove their strength.
    -Managed to have their own unique abilities by incorporating their sport hobbies into a fighting style.
    -Only lost their invitations because they were attacked unexpectedly.
    -Team Composed of 3 badass dudes who look like they could murder an entire street's worth of thugs.
    -Officially invited by the almighty Rugal Bernstein to KOF 94. Never returned because their invitations got stolen by cowards who coulnd't be arsed to enter appliations to KOF properly. (COUGH New Face Team COUGH K' Team COUGH)
    -All of them are proud to be American, and are the only team after KOF 94 to still have their nationality on their Team Name in recent years (aside of Team Korea)
    -Heavy D was the first Boxer in KOF history, and one of the few Shadow Boxers in Fighting games. (he also sports the CHAD Hairstyle)
    -Don't seem to be bitter about losing the KOF tournament at all.
    I always found it funny that Yuki, Kyo Kusanagi's girlfriend, a character from the company that gave us Mai Shiranui, Athena, Leona, Blue Mary, Shermie, Angel and others, is among the most plain looking character out of all:

    Shame she was only playable in SNK Gals Fighters, she would have been a fun addition to SNK Heroines (more so than Genderbent characters) and actual KOF characters as a "Fighting Clown" secret character.
    The US Sports Team should have been KOF mainstays, or at least been more common instead of beign relegated to just KOF 94 and 98. Their absence in XIII was a missed opportunity since a lot of old school SNK concepts came back in that game (Kyo going back to his old school KOF 94-95 moveset, Athena and Kensou using their Psycho Soldier outfits, and a lot of teams going to the more traditional groups like Terry, Andy and Joe) so bringing them back there would have been good.

    Doesn't help that a lot of Ash Saga character designs were god awful and try hard, i'll take's Brain Battler's "Dull" design over whatever the hell most of those characters brought to the table. Don't even get me started on XIV and Sylvia Paula whatever, or Discount Organization XIII Member.
    Castlevania Iceberg: All the information here is true. The deeper it goes the more obscure it gets.

    Tip: Grant Danasty missing in Netflix Show. Isaac's race lift in the Netflix show. Simon's different designs across the series. VRC6 Chip in japanese version of Castlevania 3 and is easier. Simon uses some of Richter's moves in Smash. Alucard was considered for playable in Smash. Playing as Richter by putting his name in SoTN (same goes for Julius in AoS and Maxim in HoD) Simon, Mega Man and Pit in Captain N. Non-canon female Belmont Sonia Belmont and her implied romance with Alucard. Simon has a sword but never has used it outside of Haunted Castle.

    Dark Water: TGS showed Castlevania Game teaser with Alucard that was cancelled. Sypha Belnades was actually sent by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Speakers were invented for the Netflix show. Akumajou Dracula Peke (secret minigame in Rondo of Blood) Worlds of Power Novel of Castlevania 2 (Worlds of Power also did novels for Mega Man 2 and notably Blaster Master) Castlevania Netflix started up as an Animated Direct-to-Video Movie and had Grant Danasty in Concept Art. The "C" in Ralph C. Belmondo (Trevor Belmont's japanese name) stands for Christopher since they were supposed to be the same character. Castlevania Bloodlines had 4 playable characters.

    THE ABYSS: Simon's original name was Peter Dante and even mentioned an ancestor (Christopher Dante). Simon could turn into a Werewolf and had a pistol. Simon is a Damphyr (half-Human, Half-Vampire) according to an official SCIV Guidebook. Forest of Monsters of Super Castlevania 4 had a completely different song. Simon was supposed to have multiple whip directions since the first NES game. Dracula's second form is called "Curse of Man" and his interaction with Simon is what cursed him. Simon became a pervert in a Mahjong game. Unused character design by Ayami Kojima depicting Simon with Blond hair and Brown armor way before Grimoire of Souls. Michelle Dynasty's entire existence. Unused ending audio for Symphony of the Night where Maria turns evil. Alignment-based endings for Symphony of the Night. Simon Belmont "III". Haunted Castle's protagonist may have not meant to be Simon Belmont (an official Konami source, Konami Software Club Monthly Newsletter once called him William in a June issue) obscure Belmont family members Kokoro Belmont and Sid Belmont plus non-canon descendants like Row Danasty, Zouk Belnades and Leila Vlad Tepes. Every incarnation of Dracula's Castle can be personalized according to Alucard.

    -Actually i looked it up and i was wrong at the "Grim Reaper appears in more games than Dracula" bit. Removed due to beign factually incorrect.

    Beenox, Toys for Bob, and King: Yo let's bring that Panda from that obscure cellphone game to CTR, and that Villain from the LCD game to our modern spin-off.
    In the Regular Show Film, Mordecai and Rigby's teenage form had brunette and blonde hair respectively but on the show they have no hair as an adult.

    Does this mean Mordecai and Rigby are actually bald?
    That or they dyed their hair which I think is unlikely.
    Ed Edd N Eddy and Oreimo indirectly are connected. Hear me out.

    Sonic showed up in O.K K.O. That show had a crossover episode with almost every major Cartoon Network show appearing as major or characters cameos, including the Eds.

    Sonic's Green Hill Zone showed up Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, a game featuring Light Novel/Anime/Manga characters like SOA, Toradora, etc.

    Not making this up.
    After playing Punch Out Wii again, im sad Punch Out never came to the 3DS. Seeing how the original arcade games were 2 screens, it would have been perfect for it (not to mention beign 3D beign a good fit for the game)

    Here's hoping the Switch brings us more Punch Out goodness. It's been 10 years, time for Mac to take those boxing gloves again.
