    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    I kind of hope the bosses have wild personalities to compensate for the designs a bit. Potentially unpopular NMH opinion(?): My current read on the aliens right now is that, save for FU, they look like these crazy random monsters that anyone could doodle, but it feels a little like a blessing...

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    Fair warning this post is only tangentially related to NMH, but is anyone else enjoying Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity this week(end)? I've been having a grand old time with it, but one thing that stick out to me was how similar the combat feels to the no More Heroes franchise (imo). This...

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    Wait, he was shown in a trailer? Neat, that art of the two returning characters that came out seemed so different from what we're getting that I figured maybe those were made in early concepts for NMH3, and were maybe scrapped. Maybe this game will have some human fights after all.

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    I think on Nintendo consoles, yeah. Probably not on the Xbox/PS remakes. That said, I find the motion control jank personally. I got these ports and they're my first time playing them on a normal (pro) controller and the difference imo is night and day. I feel like I have an idea what I'm doing...

    Adult Swim Games hosts eShop sale

    DUDE, I would play the hell out of a Venture Bros. game, presuming it was at least competent, but by all means may it be actually a solidly good game that I could happily pour several hours into if the TV tie-in video games Gods would be so unusually kind. I'd suggest even a great game but I...

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    I still loathe the term "toxic masculinity", but I know what it means and I get it. On that note, the last note there hits it on head a bit. One of the appeals to the series that garnered it's small but dedicated fanbase is the multiple levels of meta narrative attempting to make NMH a satire of...

    I think I'm missing one Lovikov ball. NG+ and I still can't find it. Why did they make the Lovikov dots orange on a primarily yellow/green map? Seems really obnoxious for finding those things.

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    Playing through NMH1 again, I kind of hope the NMH franchise one day gets ports to PC, if just so someone can make a mod for NMH1 that re-creates the ability to explode the NPCs of Santa Destroy into a bloody mist when you run them over with the Schpeltiger, as was said to have been in playtests...

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    I'm really curious to see the character dynamic between FU and Travis. It occurred to me the other day after watching the new NMH3 trailer, that the final bosses of NMH1&2 were unknown, not a presence, basically was just a thing to get to (which I get is thematically the point on some level.)...

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    I've already bought NMH 1&2 from the Eshop. Here's hoping this gets people interested in the NMH franchise, and gets them to try the first two games. Maybe this time come the next five or ten years as we speculate on another Smash game, the Travis supporters will reign in the dozens. Not...

    Steve Rocks Smash! Steve (and Alex) Social Thread

    I was wondering this too. I might have to watch the presentation again unless someone can tell me, but I recall Sakurai saying something about how diamond will always show up eventually, but I wasn't sure if that was about FD/BF stages, or if that's a universal truth on all stages. Imo that...

    Steve Rocks Smash! Steve (and Alex) Social Thread

    People have already considered that Steve might have the best online taunt by building L's on the stage. That's not a strategy but it's still worth considering. What I'm curious about is what kind of combo of blocks and TNT can you ledge trap with.

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    Sounds like Suda and Grasshopper studio are back in action, and Suda potentially has plans for a NMH4. Maybe Travis just needs a little more time for people to truly see his style and potential, in time for whenever we're speculating again.

    Climbing the Ranks - Travis Touchdown For Switch Smash!

    Darn, RIP Travis. Still, it is nice to see him acknowledged, aaaand my #1 last time got upgraded from costume to playable (King K. Rool) so, maybe here's hoping for Smash 6?

    Steve Broke Twitter and Smashboards

    Lowkey I'm really interested to find out if blocks can be placed in air, like in Minecraft, and by extension if we can then make a horizontal block wall to gimp recoveries to the ledge.
