  • Me: The 3D Mario compilation and return-to-form Paper Mario rumors are fake, who'd be stupid enough to believe them?

    Also Me: but what if
    Calling it now: FP6 is going to be Dr. Coyle. Spring Man's already in as an assist, so unless they promote him to playable, the default character of the roster is out of the running. Dr. Coyle's the last character that was added to ARMS, is the director of ARMS Laboratories and is the biggest bad of the game, with Headlok and Max Brass being the final boss of the arcade mode on lower difficulties, making her the Akuma of the game. She's got the most lore behind her compared to other characters on the roster, and her gimmicks are having a float instead of a jump and having teleporting dodges (like Mewtwo). The mechanics of ARMs wouldn't be too obscured by her relatively simple gimmicks, and she could wield different signature weapons of other fighters like you can in-game.

    And if not her? Just give me a Coyle alt color for whoever does get in and I'll be happy.
    The bad news: We're probably not getting a Nintendo Direct until February, since the two big runners for new info have their own directs this month.

    The good news: We're getting a 35 minute Smash Direct on the fifth DLC character, Thursday's going to be WILD.
    > 64/TTYD style paper mario rumored/leaked for a direct
    Don’t do that. Don’t give me hope.

    xzx xzx Not sure how much merit it has, so I'm keeping my expectations tempered, but it comes up at the beginning of Papa Geno's latest video.
    > sudden 6.1.1 update drops
    > all it does is add richter and dark samus amiibo support

    Well, uh... that might be a solid January deconfirm.

    For a direct you mean? Possibly. But given the release window they gave for Challenger Pack 5, we’re getting some kind of announcement, direct or otherwise, in early February at the latest I’m sure.
    ... Huh. We’ve never got a dedicated Pokemon Direct so soon after a main series release before, which makes me wonder what they’ll possibly be announcing.

    We’ve also had a couple instances of Nintendo Directs happening a few days before/after a Pokemon Direct, so I wouldn’t lose hope just yet of a Nintendo Direct this month.
    I had one of those weird, fleeting dreams you get right before you wake up that Isabelle’s Fishing Rod was just this unstoppable option that could be used in any situation, and people were making videos about banning her like they did with Hero. Wack.
    The year is 2021. Smash Ultimate's DLC has ceased production, and ends with 20+ characters added post-launch, along with a plethora of other features and quality of life changes and balance patches. The first Nintendo Direct since Smash Ultimate's post-launch development cycle has wrapped up has just premiered.

    "okay, but where's smash?"
    I'm hoping we get either news or confirmation of a new 2D Sonic from the Mania team some time next year. I've been watching retrospectives and replaying Mania recently, and now I'm really craving a sequel.

    MajoraMoon MajoraMoon Given Sega/Sonic Team's track record in recent years, I would not be opposed to that. Problem is, 2D Sonic might be more up the Mania team/Evening Star's alley than 3D.

    Sonic Team's on Sakura Wars, so they'd need to find a completely new dev company anyway.

    I had a stupid dream where I somehow used a final smash on my own character, resulting in my console bricking. And then I hear news that Terry is out here bricking Switches. I'm gonna pretend like this was a prophecy delivered to me in my dreams, and not just dumb coincidence.
    6.0 has new options for Arenas: broke
    6.0 buffed a bunch of low tiers, including King K. Rool: WOKE
    If you're ever feeling down on your luck or like a failure, just remember that no matter how bad you screw up, at least you can't screw things up any worse than Bethesda has, and still is with Fallout 76. It's the train wreck that just keeps on giving.
    Watching a video about what the next Mario & Luigi game could be like, and then waking up the next morning to hear news that Alphadream is filing for bankruptcy is the hardest whiplash I've ever experienced, yeesh. Hope Nintendo either buys the company and makes them second party, or otherwise helps them get back onto their feet.
    Mii Gunner playerbase: exists

    Every single person who dished out $0.75 on the spot for a Sans costume and Megalovania: Allow us to introduce ourselves.
    I hope I'm not jinxing myself saying this, but I'm glad Banjo isn't considered terrible (Piranha Plant) or overpowered (Joker, Hero) by the community, he's just a solid character with strengths and weaknesses that isn't stirring up any controversy. Hope this trend continues for DLC.

    nah, he's pretty terrible.

    Gryphon827 Gryphon827 Nah, he's pretty solid imo. Not top tier, but definitely not bottom tier. I'd say right now he's a solid mid tier.

    Banjo's biggest issue to me is his game plan is one dimensional. He plays like discount Snake at 'upper levels of play' where it revolves around using the grenade to set up favorable situations yet he lacks the better options to end stocks like Snake outside of hard reads. Also his recovery isn't the best but, ironically, better than Snake's IMO. Banjo's got speed on his side though. He's deceptively fast, which still gets me every time I play with or against him. His attacks don't have the best coverage and rely on reads a bit too much for my liking.

    He's decent but yeah, he's mid. His grenade shenanigans are what trip me up until I learn the best way around it, just as I've had to do with Snake.
    Out of all the reveals today... the sudden Megalovania triggered my fight or flight response, I was reeling for the rest of the Smash segment after that, jesus. Toby and Sakurai playing Smash together also sounds hilarious.
    Apparently for the Hero presentation, Sakurai literally took the Youtuber route, sat down by himself in a room with a camera, and ad-libbed the presentation like it was a Let's Play video.

    Those memes taking Sakurai's face cam footage and putting it over other gameplay as if he actually was a gaming Youtuber were more accurate than I think anyone realized.
    I only recently got back into Splatoon 2, and previously only participated in one Splatfest, Pulp vs. No Pulp. I missed the Final Splatfest, now I’m kinda sad I missed this game in its prime. It arguably has better online all around than Smash does.
    Even though I'm still on the fence with Sw/Sh due to E3 and the fallout from that, I can at least respect that they didn't drop the concept of regional forms, and actually expanded on it (adding them to Pokemon outside Gen 1, variant-exclusive evolutions). The same unfortunately can not be said for Megas, Z-Moves, etc.
    Reminder there's no right or wrong way to play the game. Competitive or casual, don't deride people for how they play or enjoy Smash.

    Have to agree with this, especially on online, where people hate playing against those who have items on. It’s not a perfect system to match those with the same rules as you, but these games always remind me when I used to play the game casually, and I still play them out for GSP. I feel bad for casual players who get belittled for their casual play, and have the competitive ruleset and scene forced on them.

    I remember seeing this one video (I can't remember the name of it) about this competitive smash player asking questions to a normal player such as "Ok, where's your gamecube controller?" or "What's your main?". And when the player would answer "I don't have one" the competitive player will just laugh and think he was joking XD
    You know what'd be hilarious? If Hero ended up getting banned, but Yggdrasil's Altar was deemed tourney legal. That'd be a first.
    Hero looks really cool, and I feel like his down special is going to lead to some REALLY nutty and fun stuff... but critical hit on Smash attacks has me concerned. Uncharged f-smash did 50% damage, that's pretty wack. Guess we'll see once he drops tonight.
    If you're a Paper Mario fan and haven't heard of the recent call-to-arms, I'd watch Arlo's newest video on the petition for a TTYD Switch port/HD remake. The pessimist in me says it isn't likely, but the optimist in me hopes this can be heard by the right people at Nintendo and cause a chain reaction.

    I already have my Switch and don't plan on blowing $200 bucks for another one, but man, I really wish my Switch was banana yellow color :/
    Hot take: Peach should've been the fourth playable character in SMM2 instead of Toadette.
    Well, I finally got SMM2! Couldn't find a physical copy anywhere near me, so I just caved and bought a digital copy. Now I just need to download it and-
