  • Since Nintendo couldn’t add one of my favorite music artists in Smash, I’ll be posting Utada Hikaru videos daily to celebrate their career and being marginally “linked” to Smash.

    I wrote up a huge piece why Sora and KH was the perfect way to finish the dlc but smashbaords glitched and refreshed. Here’s the shorter version:

    Sora and KH was 101% the best way to finish DLC. It has all the tenderness, sentiment, and magic that is needed to wrap up speculation of a game that’s 3 years old. This is a bittersweet moment and using a series known for bittersweet moments was the way to go. This is coming from not a KH fan by the way. Crash, Chief, Hayabusa, no one could pull this off. This was a beef some had with how Sm4sh ended. It was good but lacked the tie in with our final character. Everything about this trailer and the presentation was 101% the best way to end it. The character and series choice, presentation, art direction, and storyboard. Just simply magical and bittersweet. I can’t imagine carrying that same sentimental feeling with a character and series like Crash or even someone like 2B or Doomguy. None of these lack the historical connection Sora has with Smash speculation nor the sentimental and emotional delivery that comes with it. That’s why I don’t understand why a few amount of people don’t think Sora was the best choice since I feel they don’t look at it within the bigger picture of the presentation/finale itself and Sora second. This past presentation and what Sora represents is just as much about him as it was about the finale. It felt they were made for each other.
    I once thought Brawl was the beat roster because it included characters that deserved to be in. Then I thought Smadh 4 had the best roster for charqcters I hadn’t considered but were nonetheless amazing inclusions. Now, with Ultimate finished, I can safely say Ultimate has the best roster for a collection of all PCR both plus fulfilling some many dreams. What game can literally say: we have characters people wanted forever, characters who people never thought about, and characters that now one thought would ever happened but did. Congrats everyone. Thank you Nintendo and Sakurai! It’s been one wild ride.
    Project Dream: Smash Bros Disney Project is up. The thread will update every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Weekends. We added Micky Mouse and Donald Duck. We are now submitting a popular Disney movie character. Submissions end on Tuesday.
    Will Spirits will retain Description entries like Trophies that had entries?
    Because if they had, that would be very cool and amazing.

    I don’t expect people to write descriptions for every spirits. So no

    Nah, too bad.
    It would be cool, but that would be too much work.
    If we froze time, then we might write entries for every spirit.
    So I finally have a working timeframe for when you can expect updates for my Smashboards’ Creates threads.
    Infinite Thread - Every day and weekends
    Marvel vs Capcom 4: Regenesis - Tuesdays, Thursdays, weekends
    Pokken Tournament 2 - Mondays, Wednesdays, Weekends
    I will say that I loved the entire DLC picks. Excellent characters, inspiring movesets, amazing content that they included, and they all hit the right notes. A+++++ the whole way through. I think having charqcters that aren’t the main protag gives each one an unique and appealing allure that you can’t get by including the protag. I may not play some of the games these characters were from (like Tekken or Persona) but they were still worthy of being included and offered something unique in return.
    As I mentioned earlier, I’m forming my thoughts into games and recently posted about a possible Injustice 3 game which includes my returning veterans. Who can see that in my profile posts thread on, well, my profile. Going from there, here is the partial list of newcomers. I will be going in each one when I can to highlight them.
    • Mera (heads a new faction called the Revengers who oppose the Resistance and Regime)
    • Plastic Man (joins the Resistance)
    • Specter (Joins the Regime)
    • Penguin (Takes over the Society after killing Captain Cold)
    • Azrael (Independent)
    • Etrigan the Demon (Independent, Resistance)
    Daydreaming about potential games and sequels is always fun but when I go down to actually writing them, I have zero motivation. Perhaps it’s because the time it takes to write them down. So I’m going to use this post here as a game building post to write down my thoughts and ideas on a series I really enjoy which is Injustice. Yes, that DC fighting game where Superman goes full authoritarian after Joker kills Louise Lane and nukes the city. Batman and his allies oppose Superman and his regime. Injustice 2 sees Brainiac come to enslave Earth so the two forces band up to fight Brainiac as well as the growing group of villains.

    To continue…

    The world begins to destabilize with the deaths of Batman and Superman. WonderWoman goes unhinged and ushers in a scorched earth society which causes Black Adam to defect which also results in his death. Cyborg and Robin remains constantly at Wonder Woman’s side and a returning Sinestro completes the package. Meanwhile, Supergirl leads the Resistance alongside Flash and Green Lantern. Black Canary and Harley Quin forms a splinter group who focuses on protecting the vulnerable from these two giants called The Saviors. Captain Cold takes command of the Society to give home to villains oppressed by both sides.

    During this period, the war between the two has claimed many lives with the previously mentioned Black Adam as well as:
    Green Arrow
    Poison Ivy
    Black Adam

    As war ravages amongst the globe, a host of Parademons converge onto Earth. It’s retribution it’s at hand. Darkseid has arrived to subjugate and get revenge for the death of his son by Superman’s hands.

    With that in mind, here is our returning roster:

    1. Flash
    2. Wonder Woman
    3. Supergirl
    4. Green Lantern
    5. Black Canary
    6. Robin

    9. Hawkgirl
    10. Harley Quinn
    11. Zantanna
    12. Blue Beetle
    13. Swampthing
    14. Starfire
    15. Atom
    Three returning Injustice 1 characters, six returning Injustice 2 characters.

    In addition, while tied to the end game of the story, Batman and Superman are also playable but locked until the player can progress to it.
    Can I just say I don’t like the Nick Brawl trailers?

    They make me feel sick and irritated. I just want to the screen to stay still so I can see actual gameplay without doing all sorts of crazy **** with shakiness and zooming in.
    2 years ago, I was helping my city in Japan prepare for the upcoming Olympics which was to be a year away. We were all very excited and I was busy translating a good portion of our city information and history from Japanese to English in anticipation for crowds of foreigners to enjoy our local fruits, hot springs, hiking trails, and traditional sights. My wife and I had lottery tickets to see the one of the sporting evenings of our choosing. Two years later, I’m no longer in Japan, living in the US, watching the Olympics, and working in a supermarket.
    I know I’ll never get into game development and, even if I could, I probably wouldn’t considering the horror stories I’ve heard working in the industry. That being said, it doesn’t stop one for musing about game ideas and concepts.

    Several years ago, I had a concept that I just titled “Realms” which would be something called a Multigenre Genre game lol. Basically, at launch, it would have three Modes. I couldn’t come up with fancy titles so they would be:

    Fighting Mode (in a similar vein as MvCI with launch attacks and two versus two)
    Hero Mode (a hero based shooter with three on a team)
    Dungeon Mode (a dungeon crawler mode with the ability to switch between two characters)

    The game would have 12 launch characters with more added via free updates with a few of them purchasable. Each character has movesets and gameplay and transitions between each game mode. So attacks that utilize within the Fighting Mode can be applied to Hero mode but adapted to that sort of gameplay.

    In addition, much like characters updates, new mode updates would be also added with a few that I felt could translate movesets fairly easily behind

    Brawler Mode (Smash clone)
    Racing Mode (more akin to Podracing or Wipeout with Mario Kart influences)
    Puzzle Mode (not sure
    Hack/Slash Mode (can switch between three different characters)
    RPG Mode (similar to Final Fantasy)

    I never came up with lore for the concept aside from “some dude used magic to bring metaverses together and to summon warriors from a variety of realities”.

    As for characters, I came up with a few:
    • a Rorschach-type character that uses a sickle and chain and a sawed-off shotgun from London. Came from a reality where villains took over London and created the first Villain-ran Nation
    • a synthetic android who comes from a reality where android surpassed humans. President of the world. Mr Rogers mixed with Vision.
    • a gigantic humanoid shark from a reality where Atlantis was the dominate powers. A bodyguard for someone. Has an arm cannon with an anchor. Very moody.
    • a female demon from a reality where Hell successfully invaded and conquered Earth. Utilizes a fire whip and summons smaller imp demons.
    • a coffee-infused CEO of the largest coffee manufacturer in the planet. Comes from a reality where his company runs the world and enslaved the population through mind-altering ingredients found in the coffee. Uses scaling hot water and portable expression machines and whip cream to attack.
    • a large female humanoid dinosaur who comes from a reality where dinosaurs surpassed humans as the top evolutionary species. They used protohumans as slave labor which resulted in an uprising against them and saw the dinosaur civilization overthrown. She comes as a resistance fighter who sought to bridge the two groups. Fights using a hammer made of volcanic rock and lava.
    A series that I have been extremely invested in is Ark Survival Evolved. There’s something that’s extremely fun and challenging about exploring a world, crafting items and objects in order to build yourself a base to survive all sorts of prehistoric and fantasy creatures, and eventually taming them to fight on your side. I’ve had tons of fun trying different strategies, based, and creatures during my playthroughs. As such I’m excited as the last dlc expansion for the first game will be including three new creatures, one being the Armagasaurus and another one that’s chosen by the community. But there’s still Ark 2 as well and I hope they go back and bring even more prehistoric creatures rather than the fantasy/sci-fi ones.

    I have a laundry list of different kinds of creatures I want to see be included so perhaps I will elaborate on them later.
    My main accomplishment(s) during the Smash 4 era:
    • covered the ESRB leak here on Smasboards news
    • Week in Review

    My main accomplishment(s) during the Ultimate era:
    • Infinite Project
    • Having my fake leak covered by BlockedContent
    • Successfully guessing Banjo's fighter number before E3 2019

    I am not sure if this makes me feel any better...
    Dear Mosatini,

    You were a great Mosaur. You killed tons of Megalodons and Plesiosaurs. But, alas, a rock that suddenly spawned cause you were so damn fast that you glitched the procedurally created maps. It caused you to become stuck. I teleported in an attempt to dislodge you but, unexpectedly, you died out of water.

    Bye Bye Mosatini

    I was listening to the Pyra/Mythra presentation and had to stifle a chuckle to myself. Sakurai talked about the colors for the characters and refers them as “2P” or “hachipi” (8P) or P8. When he gets to Color #3 or where the two switches color, he refers to them as “Tsuripi” which is “3” rendered into Japanese. He did that for 2P but not for 4P and onwards and resorted to the Japanese words for the numbers (yon, go, roku, nana, and hachi).

    But, when talking how P3 colors switches the palettes, he refers it not as “tsuripi” but as “Sanpi”. I found this mildly humorous as, well, “Sanpi” is slang for ... an act where three people engage in “intimate relations”. I’m not sure if he meant to avoid saying Sanpi earlier by saying Tsuripi but kind of funny he subconsciously said it ... probably without realizing it.
    This will probably be my last Direct + Smash reveal while I’m still living in Japan. When I first arrived, Brawl was still the de facto Smash game. I wish it aired at night though rather than the morning at 7 am. My tradition during these things is to get hilariously drunk during it. I even buy a special drink to commentate it.
    The Japanese people already want to cancel the Olympic Games this year to avoid a super-spread event but the entire “women are annoying” comments by Olympic Comittee Chief Mori (an 83-year old disgraced prime minister known for for gaffes and corruption) is pushing the public to the edge.
