  • Who are y'alls predictions on the next 3 fighters? Mine are Geno, Chun-Li, and a toss up between Dr. Eggman or Crash.
    HARBlNGER

    Crash, another Capcom character (Monster Hunter, Dante, or Leon with several character alts) and a Botw Champion or young Impa are my predictions. I would've considered a Pokemon like Cinderace but I think we're too late for one right now. Who knows really. Sephiroth was a huge surprise so anything could happen.

    Eggman, Crash, and Master Hand, with a Waluigi bonus fighter.

    Now Master Hand would be cool. If Smash ever get's a original fighter it has to be Master Hand. He was there from the beginning and it is theorized that Master Hand is the boy that was picking up the Smash fighter toys in the Snash 64 opening.
    So I heard from xenother xenother that one of his sources heard a rumor in 2018 that they were working on Chun-Li during base game but scrapped her due to not finding a satisfying enough moveset in time. If this is true, I think Chun-Li is very likely as DLC.

    How could they not find a stasifying moveset for a character who already has a moveset totally fully laid out already?

    Who knows. Sakurai said in a Famitsu Column that Heihachi was considered in Smash 4 but didn't make it in due to it being too hard to implement a moveset for him. Could be a similar situation. Here is the link to that translated Famitsu Column on Source Gaming's site:

    So far, this is where I would rank the DLC characters from my favorite to least:

    1. :ultbanjokazooie:
    2. :ultsephiroth:
    3. :ultminmin
    4. :ult_terry:
    5. :ultpiranha:
    6. :ultsteve:
    7. :ultjoker:
    8. :ulthero:
    9. :ultbyleth:
    Ridley64
    Ridley64
    :ultsteve:-EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH My most wanted, but never thought he would be in.

    :ultbanjokazooie:-I'm happy your happy, and I'm happy someone who deserved it got it.

    :ultpiranha:-Liked purely for everyone's reaction.

    :ult_terry:-Looks awesome, plays awesome.

    :ultminmin-Broke the spirit fanrule.
    :ulthero::ulthero2::ulthero3::ulthero4:-Don't know where else, trailer looked awesome.

    :ultsephiroth:-Not playable yet, don't know where else.

    :ultbyleth::ultbylethf:-Dumb choice.

    1. :ultsephiroth: - The character is dope. I don't have much else to say.
    2. :ultbyleth: - One of the few characters that I was actually hoping got in. Unpopular opinion, but I feel like Byleth deserved a spot in the pass (although he probably shouldn't have been the last one revealed).
    3. :ultjoker: - Probably the coolest dlc character gameplay-wise imo.
    4. :ulthero: - The good kind of jank. Love this character.
    5. :ult_terry: - Really unique character with cool mechanics. Definitely not a character I expected to be put in smash, but I'm glad he was.
    6. :ultsteve: - Neat character with some cool ideas. I don't have much attachment to minecraft so I can't say much.
    7. :ultminmin - Eh, not a huge fan. Her kit feels too janky to me personally, but I understand why they put her in.
    8. :ultbanjokazooie: - I have no personal attachment to banjo so I don't really care for him all that much. Plus I just don't like his kit. I'm happy for the people that wanted him though.
    ????. :ultpiranha: - I honestly forget this character is in the game most of the time lol.

    Overall I think all of the DLC has been pretty good. I don't really care that much about who they put in, I'm just happy to have new characters.

    I like all of the FP1 characters and have no opinion of :ultsephiroth: since he isn't released yet.
    1. :ult_terry: - IDK something about Terry just sticks with me. Maybe it's because he's a (traditional) fighting game character?
    2. :ultjoker: - No comment.
    3. :ultbanjokazooie: - Wasn't a fan of Banjo & Kazooie at first, but they slowly grew on me.
    4. :ultbyleth: - Byleth was actually one of my "most wanted", but I don't like the direction they took him/her with his/her moveset. Instead of what makes Byleth unique, the devs decided to give Byleth a bunch of weapons... making him/her less unique in the process. I still like to play Byleth though; I'm just disappointed that's all...
    5. :ulthero: - The FP1 character I like the least. I wasn't a huge fan of Dragon Quest, but the Hero is a little fun. I dislike how the devs handled the "Command List" because it makes international play more of a cluster**** than it has to be (unless you're playing wirelessly).
    6. :ultsteve: - Steve's okay. He's just not my cup of tea. I like how the devs added Minecraft to Smash, though.
    7. :ultpiranha: - PP's okay too. PP just didn't stick with me. Not only that, but if it was supposed to be a joke character, I don't think it was very funny after the initial reveal. It's got a cool amiibo, though.
    8. :ultminmin - Min Min's the only DLC character that I dislike. It's not because "NUUU WE NEED SPRINGMAN" (although, admittedly, I would've preferred Springman over Min Min), but rather because I think she feels boring to play. I don't think she's a waste of a slot, but I do think she's a waste of potential.
    We just got our first 3rd party villain and our first unique secondary 3rd party rep. Characters like Dr. Eggman, Tails, and Chun-Li are on the table now.
    I have a good feeling about tonight's announcement regardless of who it is. I think we are in for one hell of a ride.
    So I'm not one for theorycrafting on the Pic of the Day photos, but does anyone have the feeling this is Sakurai reflecting on the modding community because of piracy?


    After all, Nintendo has been on a big hunt lately shutting down mods and online tourneys that would happen to use them.
    So anyone here knows how to upload pictures here on the phone? I know you put the link address or the image itself from your computer into the image box, but it never works for me when I'm on my phone. I can always do omit on my computer but never my phone. I wish someone could tell me how I can fix this and do it on the phone.
    So in y'alls' opinion, who would be the most underrated Smash request ever? It would be so hard for me to answer that as there are so many cool and wacky characters who don't get the love and respect they deserve. I could name like 40 characters, but if I could narrow it down to one character outside of my biasness, that would almost be impossible for me to choose.
    So if Waluigi were to make it into Smash Bros. as a playable character, should he come with Waluigi's Pinball from Mario Kart DS or Waluigi's Island from Mario Party 3 as a stage? I honestly would prefer Waluigi's Island as a stage as it would have a lot of traps and be a unique stage to play on. Plus it would give us a Mario Party stage which we haven't gotten yet.
    It's so boring around here I think I can fall asleep without even trying.

    It’s been oddly quite despite all the mounting evidence of corrupt and anti-consumer/anti-esport activity against the Smash and gaming community from Ninty.

    When you close your eyes and dream. But really though, I have a hard time trying to go to sleep. I did the overnight freight shift for 3 years and even though I don't work freight anymore, I still can't get use to sleeping at night. I have a easier time trying to fall asleep during the day than nighttime probably because that's been my sleeping routine for the past 3 years.

    Kids and whiskey does it for me. I’m usually already sleep before I get into bed. Having kids really conditioned me to sleep when I can; especially since I had trouble sleeping when I was younger. When my oldest kid was a newborn, I would barely sleep at all. I remember going almost five whole days with not even an hour of sleep. It got so bad that I almost fell asleep while teaching my classes. I always felt that I should be awake and helping with the baby; even when my wife told me to sleep. So after two kids, I’m conditioned to get barely any sleep but to sleep when I find time. My youngest is almost 1 now and finally got a more consistent sleep schedule around summer time. Still, my bed time is around 11 or midnight, after I finish for my prep work the next day or to have free time and I’m back up at 4:30 or 5. I can barely sleep in last 6 anymore. Long story short, chasing kids around all day and a glass of whiskey is enough to knock me out at the end of the day.
    So this morning, I played the original Battletoads on the NES and not on Rare Replay and I got all the way to level 6: Karnath's Lair. I think I'm real close to beating the game and I hope I can finish it before my vacation is over this week. I would feel very proud of completing the original Battletoads as it's literally considered the hardest game of all time by most critics.
    The mood and pace of this site right now:

    You think it's bad now, but imagine when the DLC is finished releasing.

    Actually, as someone who only joined this site during Ultimate's lifecycle, I am a little out of the loop, do all the support threads and the newcomer thread just shut down as soon as Nintendo says the DLC is finished or something? Do people have to start "intergame" support threads that aren't for Ultimate, but just for the hypothetical next game for each character, or we don't even have that and there's only just a social thread and competitive metagame discussion? This site did luck out in that the time period between Smash 4 and Ultimate was relatively short due to the Wii U and the Switch's timing in release cycles., I can't imagine a Melee/Brawl timeskip or Brawl/Smash 4 timeskip would do to this site in terms of dead speculation.

    Mushroomguy12 Mushroomguy12 I wasn't a member of Smashboards back during Smash 4 speculation, but I was on the Smash Sub-Reddit back then and would take a peek in here once in awhile at that time. The moderaters closed off the Newcomer Speculation forums when it was announced the Smash Ballot character aka Bayonetta was going to be Smash 4's last DLC character. They closed it off within like a week before or after her announcement probably due to shutting everything down before a giant flame war over Bayonetta' s inclusion started. Same thing will probably happen here in the Newcomer Ultimate forums when Nintendo announces said upcoming character will be Ultimate's last DLC character.

    But I think a lot of support threads here started in the Spring or Summer of 2017 so yeah, speculation for a Smash game starts here before it's even announced.
    So I was able to exit out of Jellyfish Fields and I played through and finished Bikini Bottom Downtown. I went back to Jellyfish Fields to see if King Jellyfish would respawn and he didn't. The curtain still didn't open up either. Looks like I'm softlock from 100% percenting the game.
    So a couple of days ago, I defeated King Jellyfish in Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated and the game still showed the skip cutscene screen after he was defeated and respawn me on the map. Only the jar of jelly spawn and the water didn't drain and the curtian didn't open up. I left the map King Jellyfish is in and went back and he didn't respawn. Now I'm in a softlock as I don't think I can leave the level and come back as I believe it's design where I go back through the level to get place to place if I'm not mistaken and Jellyfish Fields isn't design in that way so I have to get through this or else I'm softlocked from the rest of the game.

    Can you reset the save file on that game? If not you might be able to get a refund for a faulty game.
    So I was playing Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated for the first time today and I defeated King Jellyfish and nothing happened. I was reloaded into the map and the game still had skip cutscene on the screen. I left the map and went back and it was still having that problem and King Jellyfish didn't respawn. I imagine I was suppose to get a Gold Spatula for defeating him so is this a glitch? I played the Movie Game years ago and you get a Goofy Goober Token for defeating bosses so I feel like this is a major glitch or softlock.
    So if you guys could look at just all the names of the characters in the DLC lineup for Smash right now would you want to see it? I would. I would like to know who we are all getting now whether than wait more than a year. This forever drought has made me lost my patience.
    So my copy of Mario 3D All-Stars still hasn't arrived from Amazon and yesterday I went to Walmart and find a copy there. I cancelled my Amazon order though.

    I played and finished SM64 100% last night in about 3 hours and half. Normally, I could get it done in under 3 hours or 3 hours, but I wasn't completely use to the Switch controls for SM64 yet especially when I was on the first floor.
    Words of wisdom from a Sunshine veteran to all the new players that try to attempt to 100% Sunshine in their first run of the game:

    Don't do it because it's going to take the fun out of the game for you if you try to attempt to do it on your first try. For those who really what to take on this challenge, have fun in hell because trying to collect all 240 blue coins in the game is a nightmare. You need to get them all if you want to obtain all the Shine Sprites in the game as giving 10 blue coins to this beaver guy in Delfino Plaza get's you 1 Shine Sprite. There are 240 blue coins in the game 30 being in each course, 20 in Delfino Plaza, and 10 in Corona Mountain. A good number of those blue coins only spawn in certain missions, so have fun with that.

    Not enough dev time. If Ultimate wasn't set to be a relative early killer app, things might have been different, but as it stands I won't look a horse gift in the mouth.

    Actually, you can get the Hawaiian shirt and the sunglasses before you get all the Shine Sprites. The only thing you really get for getting all the Shine Sprites is a stupid gathering congratulations picture at the end of the game.
    So has anyone's pre-order for Super Mario 3D All Stars from Amazon been cancelled yet? I'm worried because I pre-ordered on Amazon.

    Hey Venus of the Desert Bloom Venus of the Desert Bloom , you didn't answer my question about putting the Goemon Mii costume in the other category in the emoji section.

    Sorry, I must have missed it. While I did make the smilies, I don’t have access to the Smilies database since it’s admin only. I just gave the folders that contained the smilies to the admins for them to add it in. There are still more smilies that have to be put in (alt costume stock icons for example) but due to the time and effort that is involved, it’s a slow process. As for Goemon, I’ll see what I can do but we don’t even have a Fallout Boy or Cuphead costume in there yet. I’ll see what I can do but I can’t promise anything.
