  • I'm not sure how accurate the statement I'm about to make is. But I'm pretty sure that back when Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom first came out, it received the same reception that cartoon based games typically do. You know, the whole mindset of it being a licensed game so it was just trying to make a quick buck instead of a being game with actual thought or care put into it's development?

    Again, don't know if that was the common consensus about the game back in the Gamecube Era. But suffice to say it's not the common consensus now. The game is now viewed upon with enough fondness to where it received a remake that had a lot of people hyped. And said remake was successful enough to kickstart a brand new game with the same style. Cosmic Shake I think it was called?

    And for a very long time my mind has associated Spongebob with the Fairly Oddparents as a sort of duo that consists of the top two nicktoons that go for it's more loose episode to episode approach (as opposed to something with a more connected plot like Avatar).

    So once reception for Battle for Bikini Bottom started becoming more favorable, I began to wonder if the Fairly Oddparents game from the same time frame, Fairly Oddparents: Breakin Da Rules, was in fact the Fairly Oddparents equivalent to Battle for Bikini Bottom. Aka a game just brushed off back when it came out as being a licensed cash grab but in the modern day when the stigma against licensed games has lessened people are noticing it was actually pretty good all along.

    I have yet to play Breakin Da Rules. So I don't completely have an answer. But from what little I've seen of people talking about it with the context of the current time frame, it doesn't seem like this is the case.
    As far as I'm aware, Burgers are considered to be an American Food. Pizza I know for sure is an Italian Food. And there are a number of Mexican foods out there.

    Why do I bring this up? Because there are mexican foods restaurants out there like Azteca that serve something called Mexican Pizza. Which is a pizza made with mexican ingredients. Like the crust is made from a tortilla. And there was this one time where I was reminded of that and my brain was stupid enough to think of an Italian Burger. Basically a burger with italian bread for the buns and a patty made out of ravioli meat.

    But for a long time I couldn't figure out a dumb food idea to complete this little trifecta. Mexican Pizza is a food that's normally Italian but used Mexican ingredients. An Italian Burger is a food that's normally American but uses Italian ingredients. All that's left is a food that's normally Mexican that uses american ingredients.

    Such an idea eluded me for a good while. But I think I've got something now. An American Taco. That would indeed have a couple ingredients that a normal taco has. Most notably cheese. Maybe certain vegetables here or there. But everything else would be more American style ingredients.

    We're talking things like a Potato Chip shell filled with stuff like Bacon, French Fries, and Barbeque Sauce.

    It's ok. you can hate me for thinking of this. I do too.
    I remember a number of years back when I saw a few top 10 videos of games the uploader had played for the first time that year. Specifically videos that included Mario Party 9 as an entry.

    One of the common praises for that game at this moment in time was how they appreciated how it gave all players a lot of potential for comebacks whereas with the old styled Mario Party's you could pretty much tell who was going to win in just a few turns.

    At the time I saw these videos I had been out of the loop with Mario Party for quite some time. So I didn't really think much of this reasoning back then. But looking back on it now, especially with the existence of various Let's Plays of the classic style Mario Party's by channels like TheRunawayGuys (especially TRG's recent Mario Party DS LP) I kind of feel like this reasoning was a big pile of..................well smashboards censors swear words, so instead I'll just insult some Pokemon by saying that reasoning was a bunch of Trubbish and a pile of Muk.
    I have no idea which members on this site have any remote interest in the idea of vs. debating. But as someone who likes to delve into that stuff a little bit, allow me to pose a question that I have not been able to find an answer to for a long time.

    How the heck could you even do vs. debating with Yu-gi-oh characters? You'll see match-ups like Ash Ketchum vs. Yugi Moto brought up more than you might expect, but the duelists in Yu-gi-oh aren't actually summoners. They just use a device that projects holograms of artwork on trading cards.

    Yes there are instances of monsters (and presumably spells and traps) being brought to life through certain means. I think Dark Games from the original can do that, Aki from 5D's had a psychic ability to bring her monsters to life and inflict real damage, and Arc-V introduced the real solid vision system which solidified the holograms.

    But even then, the monsters don't have any detailed abilities for combat. When you look at something like Pokemon, you have examples like Pikachu, a creature that can conjure lightning, ram into opponents at high speed, or make his tail as hard as steel. And those aren't even the only examples.

    Meanwhile the Dark Magician just uses magic energy blasts a couple of times. Magic energy blasts that don't have any specifics on what kinds of effects they could have on someone or how much damage they can dish out.

    Which leads into another problem. Yu-gi-oh Monsters are featless. What do I mean by feats? I mean things like how Arceus can wipe out a decent sized landscape with his Judgment attack, or how Metalgreymon from Digimon has been documented as possesing power equal to a nuclear warhead.

    Maybe there are 1 or 2 specifics exceptions here and there but for the most part monster cards in Yu-gi-oh don't have anything like that.

    That awkward moment when you remember that one of those children who is fighting is Yugi Muto. Who is 16 years old =P
    It goes deeper than YGO and exposes a fundamental problem in these kinds of debates. The problem that a lot of people who participate in these types of debates don't understand is that works of fiction aren't usually designed to be nitpicked or scrutinized endlessly over how they compare to other works or even how consistent it is internally in regards to someone's arbitrary construct of power levels. They are usually focused on constructing a narrative and that means doing things like having a character pull out a last-minute power up to generate tension and excitement.

    An example would be a Naruto character being claimed to win in one of those Youtube Death Battle things that I don't remember the details of. They used the argument that Genjutsu, an ability that manipulates Chakra in the brain to create illusions, would be something that the opponent would have no means to deal with IIRC. However, for spoiler reasons only Naruto characters can even have Chakra and only specific ones at that, so the idea of being able to manipulate Chakra in the brain of characters from an entirely different series is just wrong. A lot of people try to make the "energy" found in these series 1:1 to better facilitate these types of debates but they are ultimately fundamentally different in ways that are important to the debate.

    Another example would be the Saitama (One Punch Man) vs Popeye Death Battle. Popeye ultimately wins because of "toon force" or being able to do things like beat up his own animator. But what they ignore is that Saitama's whole gag is that he beats everything in one punch and that's why he's always unsatisfied and bored with life. It doesn't matter that Popeye beats up his own animator because Saitama beats everything in one punch no matter how strong they are. And that's the problem with taking gag shows seriously because their gags have nonsensical physics and realities that clash with the reality of other works.

    And that's the issue with these types of debates. The more disparate and dissimilar a work is relative to another the more assumptions and arbitrary rule-setting one has to make in order to make the debate even function. Else you would keep getting things like Bleach characters would always win because they are ghosts and their opponent can't see them or something like that. And once you make enough of these arbitrary rules you are no longer even debating the original works anymore.

    There are a couple things you mentioned that I could debate on, but all in all you make some very solid points.

    Points that are examples of why I'm not as hardcore into vs. debating as others are. They can be enjoyable discussions from time to time, and in the case of death battle or other such things they can spawn some entertaining videos as well.

    Sadly there are a number of people who engage in these kinds of debates that are too insistent that the verdict they reach is the "correct" result. And unfortunately this can lead to some toxic arguments with insults and harassment being thrown out over who has the correct outcome.

    Not exactly a good mindset to have for what's basically writing a fanfiction.
    I figured out why Nintendo hasn’t released a new F-Zero game since F-Zero GX.

    By the time that game came out, there were already 2 Mega Man Zero games released and the devs were quite proud of their work.

    So they didn’t really appreciate Nintendo being mean to their main protagonist by releasing a game that said “F” Zero.

    So they talked to Nintendo about this and the Big N was kind enough to agree to stop bullying Capcom’s character.
    I don't know how many people here care about Death Battle. But DB is an internet show I've been following for a long time. Long enough to remember that back when Screwattack had their own website the Death Battle fans on the site got to talking more than once about the idea of every playable character in the original Super Smash Bros. being in a Death Battle episode at some point.

    And in the modern day, we're pretty close to that becoming a reality.

    Mario fought Sonic. Twice.
    Donkey Kong fought Knuckles.
    Link fought Cloud. Twice.
    Samus fought Boba Fett. Twice.
    Yoshi fought Riptor.
    Kirby fought Majin Buu.
    Fox fought Bucky O Hare.
    Pikachu fought Blanka.
    Luigi fought Tails.
    And Captain Falcon fought Johnny Cage.

    So only Ness and Jigglypuff remain in this regard and of the two, I think Ness has a solid possible opponent in the form of Raz from Psychonauts. I've heard some people say that Ness takes the win in that match-up a little too easily, but even if that's the case, I think the idea could still work because of the theming.

    The million dollar question at that point is who would Jigglypuff fight in a Death Battle? Does Yo-Kai watch have a sleep and/or singer oriented Yokai somewhere in it's roster or something?
    Suffice to say the internet has a new meme to spam with how many “Knuckles Approves or Disapproves fictional character crushes” videos have been coming out lately.
    Legitimate question here.

    Before he joined the roster of Smash Bros, was Captain Falcon actually considered the main character of F-Zero?

    Pretty sure he was but all things considered I don't actually know for sure.
    I have to ask for some input here.

    I mentioned in a previous post about Dorkly's Power Up Mix-Up Videos and how one of them replaced Charmander with Dark Bahamut from Final Fantasy as a Kanto Starter. As well as the comments that came from it about possible options certain Pokemon might have against Dark Bahamut and opinions that those options are rendered moot due to Final Fantasy having stats in higher numbers than Pokemon.

    A tiny bit of inspiration struck, and I've been toying with the idea of making a video that goes into whether or not Arceus could defeat Dark Bahamut (FF10 Version) from a game mechanic standpoint if Arceus was powered up with all the Super Mechanics from all generations at once.

    When I say Super Mechanics, I mean things like Mega Evolution, Z-Moves, Aura, Gigantamax, I think you get the idea.

    But I have a potential hurdle. Unlike the other Super Mechanics, Mega Evolution and Z-Moves have been in the same generation before. And the only Pokemon who doesn't need a held item to Mega Evolve, Rayquaza, cannot Mega Evolve if he's holding a Z Crystal.

    That's what I need some input on. If I decide to make this video should I allow Mega Evolution and Z-Moves at the same time since the point is to bring all the super mechanics together as one (for what it's worth, creative liberties such as a fan-made mega evolution and fan-made gigantamax form for Arceus would be requirements for this) or should I not allow that since the games have already canonically made that impossible?
    With the rumors floating around that the Pokémon Anime might actually be ending soon, here’s a little trip down memory lane from me in regards to the anime.

    Back when eras like Diamond and Pearl and Black and White were airing, I was onboard the bandwagon that the anime had gone on too long and needed to end.

    But when X and Y came out, I wanted to give it a try because I got intrigued by Amourshipping and I actually really enjoyed the X and Y saga and Amourshipping is one of my favorite ships.

    And neither of those things I really like would have come into existence if the anime ended when that bandwagon I used to be on said it should.

    That’s a pretty crazy realization.
    As in support as I am for more Zelda characters in Smash, I have to acknowledge that a hefty amount of notable options only became notable from their Hyrule Warriors movesets.

    And I feel it kind of works against a character in a way if they have to resort so specifically to a spin-off game to have a moveset.
    I posted an hour ago about some of the ideas out there for a Sonic Echo Fighter. So in relation to that, allow me to say that one of the things I appreciate about Fighter Pass 2 is how it made the "All Echoes Challenge" damn near impossible.

    Don't get me wrong, such a challenge can be a fun fan thing from time to time. But in the realm of actual Smash Bros. I don't agree that every character needs an Echo Fighter. Some characters just do not have any options.

    But to explore the flip side of that, I've decided to list my favorite Echo Fighter idea for each character I think can have an Echo Fighter. Aside from the characters who already have one. And no cross-series Echoes.

    Mario - Shadow Mario
    Donkey Kong - Funky Kong
    Yoshi - Boshi
    Fox - Miyu
    Luigi - Gooigi
    Bowser - Dry Bowser (though Dark Bowser is pretty close to being in a tie for this spot)
    Zelda - Hilda
    Ganondorf - Demise (But only with Ganondorf's Moveset as of Smash Ultimate. Otherwise this doesn't work.)
    Meta Knight - Galacta Knight (though like with Bowser, Dark Meta Knight is almost at a tie)
    Ike - Black Knight
    Sonic - Mighty
    Toon Link - Toy Link
    Mega Man - Proto Man
    Palutena - Medusa
    Pac-Man - Ms. Pac-Man
    Shulk - Malos
    Bowser Jr. - Koopa Kid
    Cloud - Zack
    Bayonetta - Jeanne
    Inkling - Octoling
    Piranha Plant - Fire Piranha Plant
    Hero - Heroine
    Terry - Rock Howard
    Byleth - Seiros
    Kazuya - Jin
    Sora - Roxas
    In the realm of an Echo fighter for Sonic, I see Shadow and Metal Sonic get brought up a lot. I've also seen Jet brought up before but not as much.

    And personally, all 3 of them are characters that I feel would be better having their own movesets. I'm not against Shadow or Metal being an Echo (Jet I just think does not work in this regard) but I'd prefer them to have their own kits.

    My personal favorite idea for a Sonic Echo is Mighty the Armadillo.
    I’m going to bring up an idea I had for Super Smash Bros. a long time ago. One that I’m admittedly not too fond of nowadays.

    That idea was instead of having the 1 rainbow colored smash ball you would have 3 different colored smash balls, red blue and green, and each one had a different final smash for every character.
    I don’t know how in the spotlight Dorkly is nowadays. Heck I don’t even know if they still have their own website.

    But back when they did have their own site, I remember seeing a pretty good chain of comments on one of their Power-Up Mix-Up videos.

    I think it was part 2 but whatever the number was, it was the part where the usual starter Pokémon line-up of Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle was now Squirtle, Bulbasaur, or Dark Bahamut from Final Fantasy.

    Some people were commenting on Blue’s disappointment on not getting Dark Bahamut since he got to pick 2nd and pointed out things like “Actually Squirtle can learn moves like Dragon Pulse and Aura Sphere in the right circumstances. Those would be pretty good against a Dark/Dragon Type.”

    And that kickstarted a whole analysis chain where people kept adding things like the Fairy Type Jigglypuff being available pretty early in Kanto.

    But in my opinion the best comment that came from all that was when someone basically said “Guys Bahamut has like 4 Million HP. Just Stop.”
    For those who don't know, Genshin Impact being playable on Playstation Platforms eventually led to Aloy becoming a playable character in the game. That's the main character of Sony's Horizon series BTW. You know, games like Horizon Zero Dawn? And she isn't Playstation exclusive either. You can get her on PC as well.

    Now the Genshin Impact Devs have had plans announced for a Switch version for a while now. And whether that actually comes to pass or if the game comes out on the next Nintendo System, if they do indeed manage to put the game on Nintendo Platforms I think there's a chance that we'll see BOTW Link as a guest character in the game as well.

    The weird about that though? Unlike the Four Champions, Link is kind of tough to determine an element for.

    Revali as an Anemo Bow
    Mipha as a Hydro Polearm
    Daruk as a Pyro Claymore
    Urbosa as an Electro Sword (no not the voice clip from Mega Man NT Warrior)

    Those all make sense and while it's easy to picture Link as a Sword character, the element's a little trickier. Maybe Anemo because Wind Waker Link? Or Dendro because OOT Link grew up in the forest?

    And maybe they'll just give us Tears of the Kingdom Link instead and that game will end up painting a very clear picture of which element he'd have.

    But for now, I'm a bit stumped on this.
    I don’t know how many people here are familiar with this aspect of the Metroid games, but the Metroids themselves have various evolutionary stages.

    One of which is the Omega Metroid. A stage that gives a Metroid Arms and Legs. I’ve known this for a long time, so during a chat about Smash Ultimate I was in shortly after the reveal trailer dropped, I was able to use this information to make a bit of a funny statement.

    One of the people in the call said “I feel they should add Metroid. He would be a pretty good character.” It was a joke based on that misunderstanding from back in the NES days that Samus’s name was Metroid.

    Someone else in the call who I believe is an avid Metroid fan asked if that person could be kicked out of the call in response.

    And then I replied with “Look at this way. Something like an Omega Metroid would be better than Adam Malkovich.”
    The video I'm about to mention is roughly 9 days old, so there's a chance that some of you have seen it already.

    But DidYouKnowGaming made a video about an idea Retro Studios had for a Zelda Spin-off

    And they brought in Zeltik for it. Who is a great Zelda Youtuber. The game itself sounds like it would have been pretty interesting.

    And as is probably to be expected, my mind did go to Smash a little bit when hearing about this game and it's characters.

    Now obviously these characters will never be in a Smash game. Characters from an unreleased game are already ineligible as is, but this game was straight up a rejected pitch. It might as well have negative chances.

    But for yet another case of a fun "what-if?" I'll talk about it anyway. Now the kid who's gathering the pages of the Book of Ganon, Kori, seems to be the main character of the game in a way. But considering how the game is structured with Kori not even being involved in combat until the final boss, I kind of doubt he would be the chosen fighter from this game.

    That leaves the 3 heroes and of those 3, my pick would be Krel.

    From the items mentioned in the video, I think Krel's kit puts him in a tie with Dunar for the most unique concept. Mainly with the mechanics that could revolve around Krel being able to use the Ether Medallion to freeze Water he casts out of his Wand.

    Dunar could do something similar what with being able to summon a Fire Elemental and being able to cause sources of fire to explode into even larger bursts of flame, and he has the added advantage of putting up a shield that could make him temporarily immune to fire, but I feel like sources of water are more reliable in Smash for utilizing this kind of concept than sources of fire would be.

    Nothing against Seriph, but it sounds like she'd have a pretty similar kit to Revali. With the exception of the boomerang. So I think her concept potential is a little more limited compared to the other two.

    Do you guys agree with my pick of Krel? Or would you pick one of the other hero's?
    So I’ve finally started playing Genshin Impact. And yes, I do like the idea of the Traveler as a playable Smash Character.

    But I also like the idea of a different character from the game being a playable Smash Character as well.

    And as someone brand new to the game (Amber is the only other character I have) I’d like to ask you all which character aside from the Traveler would be your choice of a Genshin fighter in Smash.
    A tie between Mona and Beidou for me. Mona because she was my first 5-Star Adventurer and carried me through a lot of Monstadt, Beidou because her kit is dopamine fuel and because I believe she's best girl.

    So. Remember the Gen 7 mythical Pokémon Zeraora?

    I’m sure we all (or at least most of us) know how to pronounce that name. But there’s an older Delzethin video out there that lists Zeraora as a possibility for an Echo Fighter of Lucario.

    In the video he says he’s hoping he pronounces the name right and then pronounces it as ze raow ra.

    No shade on him or anything. It happens. But when he pronounced it that way I thought, and it still think to this day, that it sounded much better than the official way to say it, and ever since then I’ve been mad that it’s not pronounced ze raow ra.
    I don't know how many people here care about the whole shipping thing. But I got good reception on my earlier Teen Titans Post so here's another one that also involves the Justice League cartoon from around the same time frame.

    Picture this: A double date between Robin X Starfire and Batman X Wonder Woman.

    I feel like the girls would be as giddy as can be over how awkward this would be for the boys :p
    So I just realized that the Teen Titans show from 2003 has 65 episodes (plus a lost episode) while Teen Titans go has at least 350 episodes.

    Now people who don't like TTG are sure to be disappointed by that. Heck, I don't like Go either so I thought "seriously?" with a facepalm myself. But if we're being serious, who else agrees that 350+ episodes might be a bit too much for the original?

    I know there were unresolved plot points like the new Terra and the true identity of Red X, but still.
    Glubbfubb Glubbfubb

    For me, there are too many aspects of the show as a whole that just don't work for me. So I'm not into the idea of watching it episode to episode. But there are a few clips I like.

    Of course that's just me. If people like Go than more power to them.
    Nobody said the OG has to reach past 350 episodes.

    I'm just sad Warner Bros. loves to milk TTG so much.
    The original cartoon was a serialized action show. Go is a comedy show with more standalone episodes and (I think) shorter runtime.

    It's not that surprising that the latter can go on much longer.
    So you guys know about Akinator? That Mobile Game about a Genie who tires to guess what character you're thinking of?

    Today's Daily Challenge in that game is trying to get the genie to guess that Top 5 characters that are Mice. And Mickey Mouse is NOT number 1. He's number 3. That was a shocker to me.
    One of the products at the store I work at made me think of Cinnamon Toast Crunch flavored Ramen.

    I was cursed with this thought so now you have to be as well.
    Weird a choice as it was for brawlfan to pick KOS-MOS as the 3rd Blade for his Rex moveset, all things considered that is a very early brawlfan video. So I could believe that if he were to remake it in the modern day, he would know that KOS-MOS should be her own Xenosaga character and would give Rex a different 3rd Blade.

    The question at that point is who that 3rd Blade would be.
    You know how when Ultimate (and I think Smash 3DS/Wii U as well) was announced, but not released that there were a lot of people being pests about getting news for it? Like how when Nintendo Directs came out all they cared about was Smash news and they disregarded every other game shown because it wasn't Smash?

    Now I don't know if this still occurs, but I know that for at least a time there were people doing the same thing with Hollow Knight: Silksong.

    With that in mind, imagine how crazy it would be if when the next Smash game is announced, and they air the final direct for it before release, and they announce that the last base game fighter is Hornet.
    With how long it's taken the Switch version of Genshin Impact to come out, I'm starting to wonder if Genshin will just be a launch title for Nintendo's next system instead.
    I’ve seen a couple people that seem to think that the cancellation of Dead or Alive 7 means the series is dead.

    On the one hand, I get why they think that. But on the other hand, I’m not entirely sure such a claim can be made yet.

    Either way though I think this is the first time in history when a numbered, main series entry to a fighting game franchise has been cancelled. Which makes the fact that it happened at all even more surprising.
    There are a lot of ways in which people show their sucky side on the internet. One that I've dealt with a few too many times is those who don't allow you to have a positive opinion of Nintendo's Online.

    I know people have their issues with NSO, and honestly there are improvements that could be made, there wouldn't be as many people who have issues with it if there weren't. But it is possible for people to have a fun, smooth experience with it that's pretty consistently without large issues.

    I'm living proof. As are the high amount of online rounds of Ultimate I've played that have run silky smooth. But that doesn't mean I want to discredit those who haven't had experiences that are as good. They have their opinions on NSO and I have mine. Their bad experiences are just as legit and matter just as much.

    But far too many times, I have not been met with the same understanding and respect for my positive views on it. People have told me too often that "Just because I had a good experience with it doesn't make it good" as if they're negative views on NSO are facts when they're not, and have also told me that "it doesn't matter" if I have good experiences with it.

    Some people are jerks about this and it honestly sucks.
    FazDude FazDude Yeah that pretty much hits the nail on the head. Nintendo online has improved from the days of Smash Bros Brawl, but there all still kinks to work out. I doubt Nintendo would have switched to a different server in 2021 to use for their games going forward if there weren’t a couple issues.
    FazDude FazDude You’re fine. That comment about the focus of the post was meant to be a reply to Wario Wario Wario.
    I noticed; I sent my reply before the edit loaded in.
    In terms of a Smash character from a game involving cooking,

    Mina from Battle Chef Brigade > Cooking Mama.
    There are examples out there of game ideas that are so amazing that they should not happen because the amount of development needed for them would be insane and there would be too much of a risk for it to be too disappointing for people because it couldn't live up to that mass of potential.

    One of these ideas is a game that plays like Jump Force, but is solely focused on Yu-gi-oh. If you've ever seen the movesets Yugi and Kaiba have in Jump Force, you'd know why this idea is so cool.

    If it's solely Yu-gi-oh based, then you'd have access to moves that involve tons of Monsters, Spells, and Traps from all 7 (soon to be 8) generations of Yu-gi-oh. Not to mention the idea of creating your own duelists to use as playable characters where you can customize what cards are in their deck. Like the character creator in Jump Force, but with a much wider array of options.

    As much as I would eat up a game like this as if it was a 5 course meal, no developer deserves the stress that all the work required for such a grand project would bring.
    I remember being in a Skype Call years ago where one of the things we were talking about was how much we didn't want there to be a Halo show. I thought we were saying this in terms of a Live Action Show specifically so I brought up how I also thought a live action show for Metroid was a bad idea.

    One of the responses I got was "I actually wouldn't mind a Metroid Anime."

    Now I'm no expert on Metroid, and I haven't seen the widest variety of Anime, but I will admit I view the idea of a Metroid anime with caution.

    Most Metroid games usually have Samus isolated on a planet by herself. Feel free to mention any examples that might prove me wrong, but an anime that focuses on isolating a single character without having practically anything for a cast of characters doesn't sound like a great idea.

    And the only Metroid game I can think of that could avoid that problem is Metroid Other M. And I doubt that the idea of a Metroid anime that uses that game for it's basis is a very favored idea.

    I agree that a full, seasonal anime would probably require more than a single human character but I think a Metroid OVA with a short run time can work. There are a lot of short animated films with minimal cast and dialogue.

    Yeah that's actually a really good way to pull it off.
    Ever since I started watching the Castlevania animated series on Netflix I've been of the opinion that something similar for The Legend of Zelda would be awesome.

    But the thing about the idea that gets me thinking the most often is if it would be based on the Botw era. The Castlevania show focuses on Trevor Belmont's Era so I think a Zelda show would do something similar and use the setting of one game as a primary focus.

    Botw certainly makes sense in that regard. It's been the focus of Zelda ever since 2017 and I do not at all dislike the idea. But basing it off of a previous Zelda that sticks to the more traditional themes is also a really good option.
    If someone were to say "A Sonic Metroidvania wouldn't work. The speed of traditional Sonic gameplay just doesn't mix well with that kind of style." then I would find myself agreeing with them because I do believe that reasoning to be true.

    Which makes it all the more hilarious that Tails Adventure exists.

    Tails Adventure is slower than most Metroid and Castlevania games, lmao. Might just be GG limitations though.
    That probably is the reason why it's slower yes. But I was more so referring to how the Sonic Franchise has a Metroidvania at all given how hight the usual level of speed most games have is.

    Most Metroidvania's may be faster than Tails Adventure, but they're slower than games like Sonic Mania.

    Yeah. I get what you're saying. Just a small thing I felt like bringing up.
    It's been a decent number of years now that this has been the case. There are people out there who really do not like Mike Matei. And in some cases, that's putting it lightly.

    For those unaware, Mike Matei is a friend and former partner of James Rolfe. The guy who plays the Angry Video Game Nerd. Mike has helped with a number of AVGN episodes and he and James had their "James and Mike Plays" series before Mike left Cinemassacre.

    As I said, there's a lot of controversy surrounding Mike. But I got to be honest, I'm almost entirely unaware of what that controversy is. I've known for a while that it's existed, but to this day I don't know the details of what the issue's people have with him are.

    Worst I ever saw from him was a bad take on twitter of how if you used a rewind feature when playing a retro game than you didn't actually beat the game.

    So it's kind of weird for me to see people hating on the dude because I don't know what the fuss is about.
    I've got a bit of a joke prediction for the Sequel to Breath of the Wild.

    Remember how Ganondorf is all zombified from what we've seen of the game so far? And how across multiple Zelda games he has the pig form of Ganon?

    That will lead to either a post game or a new game + where there will be the first example of dubious food where you can clearly see exactly what it is. Zombie Ganon Bacon.
