  • Oh and surprise surprise, Trump and Abe are going golfing. You discuss important matters. And play golf cause that’s what rich world leaders do.

    As for approval ratings, they fluctuate. Dubya has an excellent approval rating after 9/11. Then it bottomed out later on. Trump’s rating has had highs and lows with it currently being high. I was highlighting that Trump constantly criticized Obama for playing golf (which I also didn’t like) yet these two are playing golf again. Shinzo actually doesn’t play golf that much from what I’ve read. Does it just to make Trump happy.

    You know though, that’s not the first time I’ve discussed Shinzo Abe and had him confused with Lincoln. And then when I tell them it’s not Lincoln but Shinzo Abe, they are like “Who?” And, when I tell them he is the Prime Minister of Japan... they are like “Ahhh...they have a prime minister?” I shouldn’t be surprised when more than half of my friends and family in the States can’t pick Japan on a map and still think I live in China. (And that Japan and China are the same)
    For my next question to the masses after SoulCalibur,
    which three entirely characters would you like to see in the next Mario Kart? Mario or Guests. Additionally, what three racing tracks would you like to see?
    Entirely new characters? I would pick Spike, Cappy, and Pikachu.

    Obligatory Giant House track! (Thanks Nathaniel Bandy)
    New Donk City
    Cycling Road (Pokémon)
    New Characters:
    1. Poochy
    2. Shake King (From Wario Land Shake It!)
    3. Kirby

    1. Wario Coliseum (NGC, haven't played it before)
    2. Crumbleden (From Odyssey, have the dragon destroy the whole track)
    3. Our Solar System (Gliding above Saturn's rings would be awsome)
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    For me, I would add: Poochy, Paulina, and Samus as a guest.

    Tracks wise, I would like to see:

    Brinstar (Metroid)
    Peach’s Castle
    Similar to my Mortal kombat question:

    1) What SoulCalibur veteran character would you like to see included?
    2) What SoulCalibur character that’s entirely new and original would you like to see (withba focus what kind of weapon that wield)
    3) What guest character from any medium do you want to see?
    Velveeta Dream
    Velveeta Dream
    1. Lizardman
    2. a War Fan wielder
    3. Marth
    1: Rock
    2: A flail wielder
    3: Kirby (uses Hammer and Fighter copy abilities)

    Realized I never responded to this:

    1. Necrid
    2. A segmented Blade-type contraption
    3. Sekiro
    Next question time: what are three type combinations (Ie: Fire/flying, Dark/Water, and Poison/Bug) that hasn’t appeared yet/not represented well that you want to see? If you want to, you can also give an example of a potential Pokémon that could fill that type combo.
    I'd be down for a Fire/Electric type. Only one so far is a Rotom form that no one ever uses.
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    All great ideas! For me personally, I would like to see a Bug/Ghost Mothman Pokemon, a Steel/Poison Factory type Pokémon, and an Poison/Psychic mindflayer Pokemon.
    Dark/Water: Something based on Cthulhu himself

    Poison/Ice: Bacteriophage Ultra Beast

    Bug/Dark: Something inspired by the Titan Dweevil

    Dragon/Bug: Arthropleura Pokemon

    Ghost/Pyschic: Grandfather Clock Pokemon

    Steel/Fighting: Steam Train Pokemon
    Ok, question time. Let’s say you were asked to add three characters in Mortal Kombat 11, who would they be?

    One character has to be a returning character not in the base roster.

    The second is an entirely new character to the series (a vague one sentence description is fine)

    The third is a guest character from any medium.
    My daughter turned twenty months old yesterday. Within these short twenty months, she can feed herself, eats pancakes, likes to dance to music, loves animals and flowers, can recognize numbers and counting, sleeps a full night, can open doors and knows to use keys to unlock them, and have mastered over fifty Japanese and English words
    As I’m nearing a decade of continuous living in Japan, I try to think about all the strange stuff I’ve experienced. Which is a lot. Shrines dedicated to penises. Getting gropped by a curious old man in the public bath. Throwing smelly mud at strangers while extremely intoxicated as apart of a cultural festival. Acting as a tour guide and translator for a fifty person (was originally told only 2 people) delegation from a city government in Thailand only to find only that one guy could speak English. Child rearing in Japanese. Built a house. Lived near an exploded volcano and found several inches of ash on my car. Ate sushi off a hairy man’s stomach. He was a fellow teacher and it was during work drinking party. At one time, I owned a chipmunk. Adopted a stray kitten off the street. Was attacked by a monkey. And chased by a badger. Shot a boat. Found a bear on top to my car. Got bit by a Mukade. Got married.

    But one stand out experience was at a bar (as most things are) about 8 years ago. My drinking buddy who was usually a very happy drunk tried to get buddy buddy with this one guy but the guy brushed him off. My buddy took offense and tried to square the guy up (in my friends defense, he was quite big). It ended up this guy my friend tried to get to fight was a Yakuza boss. So about 5 other guys who were sitting in random places immediately sprang to action and pushed us onto the bar. The bartender was our friend and was trying to smooth things over while I was also trying to calm things down as the only foreigner who could speak Japanese while having my face pressed down on the bar. We were promised that they would send us back to our countries in bags if we tried that stunt again. I remember my friend asking “Dude, what’s he saying” and I said “They will send us in body bags if we do this Gain” and his rely “Fuuuuu....”. The Yakuza boss then signaled to his men to sit down, gave the bartender a glare, and told us to find some place to go drink. We quickly shuffled out and were sadly told by our bartender friend that we were unwelcome. We later learned that if we were to come back, it would be trouble for the bartender there.

    Yep....that was the weirdest.

    whew thank goodness it's free, was worried about breaking the bank
    I am super excited for Animal Crossing Switch. I have a whole grocery list of things I want to see included ranging from gameplay to new collectables to even furniture.

    But for now I want to focus on four new Villager species I would love to see be included:

    Moles (not the Resetti kind)
    Lizards (Iguanas, Gilda, Komodo, Etc)
    Lemurs (ruffed, ring-tailed, etc)
    Bat (Vampire, fruit, little brown, etc)

    In addition, it would be fun to see these following species in a particular character role like Mr. Nook:

    Hyena (maybe in a circus?)
    Cheetah (marathon event)
    Tasmanian Devil (some sort of accomplice with Red?)
    Proboscis Monkey (specializes in medicine maybe. Especially the nose)
    Meerkat (not sure...hmmm)
    Bandicoot (same as above)

    The ability to slide off platforms and such while wave landing
    Dr. Edgeworth Dr. Edgeworth that's why I play Omega form online. The platforms get in the way and leave me vulnerable to aerials and up-smashes. Espically when I try to land a surprise DDD recovery on someone, the platforms get in the way.

    Besides the roster, I would change the presentation of Direct: E3, Ken/Incineror Direct with WOL teaser, Isabelle, and final Simon/Richter Trailer.
    My daughter would make for a good newcomer:

    Special: Temper Tantrum because the juice box is empty
    Side Special: Booger Fling
    Up Special: Climb on something that I know I shouldn’t but I still do
    Down Special: Poo Bomb

    Final Smash: Meal Time
    There's someone in my gym class who would have a similar moveset... revolving around farting, making stupid sounds, and pestering the girls in my grade. The sad thing is that he's almost a senior in high school.
    Somewhat. It's just one attack shared by Wario. Except it deals more damage and has the same effect as Piranha Plant's poison cloud.
    My six English classes got cut down to only two classes cause of the flu. In Japan, if a little over half of the class has the flu, the class is canceled for just about a week. Makes my day easier but feel bad for my elementary students :(
    Yikes, that's pretty scary to hear. I hope they all make a swift recovery! :)

    Hope so too. My entire seventh grade (four classes) were cancelled last week.

    Luckily, child healthcare is free in Japan. So all medicine and doctor visits up to graduating junior high (some prefectures up until high school graduation) is completely free.
    I’m liking Mortal Kombat 11 so far. I loved X’s “three per character” customization system. I’m glad it’s returning and expanded further. The roster is looking solid and I’m happy to see Skarlet back. Not sure about Kronika but her henchman, Geras, looks interesting. The game looks more close to X then X did to 2011 but that’s not really a bad thing. And evil Raiden is something I can get behind.

    Sakurai and Boon, bring Scorpion in Smash.
    Character Files #11 Reckless Notice Safety Guy
    First Appearance:
    Latest Appearance:

    The Reckless Notice Safety Guy is one who we all know quite well. He informed us on how to properly wield the mighty Wii Mote...both safely and effectively. We saw him before we started our games and his sage wisdom guided us to hours of safe entertainment. His reassuring words and safety demonstration gave us the foundations of Wii safety protocol that not only would span to the Wii U but to the Switch. His attention...nay...dedication to safety would be the underlying key foundations of safety in Nintendo products today.

    He appeared in the safety segment when you first started Brawl.

    He incorporates “safe” attacks using the Wii Mote and Nunchuck as well as other accessories. To give him more depth, a Battery Change gimmick was added which gives him enhanced attack power and speed once his batteries drains. His height and weight is around WFT but he is a bit slower. His loves have further reach though.

    Neutral: Wii Combo (Smacks with the wiimote and then again with the Nunchuck. Infinite jab is a combination of slapping with both like playing on a drum. Jab finisher is a thrust with the wiimote.)
    Dash: Nunchuck Whip (Slaps the opponent with the Nunchuck.)

    F-Tilt: Batters Up (Holds the wiimote with both arms and does a side strike attack.)
    U-Tilt: Whip it Good (Performs an upwards arcing whip attack with the Nunchuck.
    D-Tilt: Flip it (Performs a wrist flick with the wiimote upwards.)

    FSmash: Wii Guitar (Slap the wiimote into a guitars and perform an all encompassing guitar jam that damages from both sides.)
    USmash: Tennis Smash (Pretends to throw a tennis ball up by rising the Wiimote which deals damage and then smashes it which hits upwards.)
    DSmash: Bowling (Makes a bowling position by taking his arm and swinging it back which deals damage and then forward.)

    Nair: Archer (Holds the Wiimote forward and then takes the nunchuck back like a bow and arrow and then punches forward; dealing damage.
    Fair: Aerial Whip (Perform a wide hitting forward whip attack with the nunchuck.)
    Bair: Dance with Wii (Spins dramatically with a counter clockwise turn with both Wiimote and nunchuck spread out.)
    Uair: Shoot (Perform a basketball pose as if shooting a basketball which causes both arms to move upward.)
    Dair: Ratta Tap Tap (Perform a downward hit that deals multiple hits of damage.)

    FThrow: Kart Racing (Holds the Wiimote horizontally and jumps on to the opponent and rocks back and forth as if he is on a go kart.)
    BThrow: Wraps the cord around the person, swings them back and pulls it causing them to spin.)
    UThrow: Uses the nunchuck to the catch the opponent and then throws them up.
    DThrow: Performs a golf swing that knocks the opponent forward.

    N-Special: Wii Zapper (Equips the Wii Zapper which fires a single energy shot or a charged energy shot.)
    S-Special: Wii Wheel (Put the Wiimote into the Wii Wheel and toss it like a frisbee. Once it lands, the Wiimote will magically return in the guy’s hand.
    U-Special: Nunchukppercut (Perform a nunchuck jumping uppercut. The Wiimote is still attached and can still do damage as well below the player as it dangles.)
    D-Special: Battery Change (Changes the current battery to a fully charged battery which returns the damage output to 100%.)

    Final Smash: Big Trouble (Reckless Safety Notice Guy takes the Wiimote and flings it forward. Once it connects with the opponent, they are trapped within the Final Smash. They are transported to a cutscene in a living room where the fighter performs various attacks using both controllers on the opponent. He goes to throw the Wiimote but it misses and crashes through the tv causing the Reckless safety notice guy who go into shock. His mother than jumps in and yells all the fighters into submission.)

    The Reckless Safety Man

    Blue face with no eyes


    Snake: Hey, it’s the Reckless Safety Notice...Guy.
    Otacon: You actually know him? That’s surprising...
    Snake: Why? You think I spend my free time working out and studying my enemies?
    Otacon: ....Yes?
    Snake: Playing the Wii was not only a good way to relax but also to practice my dexterity. Me and this guy became friends real quick.
    Otacon: Reeeeeally? I find that a bit hard to believe.
    Snake: Yeah. In between missions I was totally working out to Wii Sports and getting my Mario Party on.
    Otacon: Which reminds me, why wasn’t there a Metal Gear game on the Wii?
    Snake: Well, the motion aspect just didn’t fit well with the Metal Gear theme.
    Otacon: But there’s a zapper.
    Snake: It didn’t fit well with the theme.

    Pit: Man, I’ve seen blue people but this is nuts. He’s all blue! And he’s wielding some sort of ancient artifact of supernatural power. Perhaps it’s an ancient relic cursed by Hades?
    Palutena: Nah, that’s just the Reckless Safety Notice Guy. And that’s the Wiimote and Nunchuck he’s holding.
    Viridi: He appeared in all the games in the Wii when you started a game. You could say he was a Wii icon.
    Pit: Huh? I’m lost...Wiimote? Wii? Nunchuck? Reckless somethin something guy!
    Palutena: He advised how to safely play Wii games...including Brawl. Your first Smash.
    Viridi: And the Wiimote and nunchuck it what was used to control you. Or the GameCube controller or the classic controller.
    Viridi: Yup!
    Palutena: And in Uprising. All your deeds and accomplishments can be attributed to the human player!
    Viridi: Yep! I thought you knew about that!
    Viridi: Geez. Don’t have a cow. I know it’s a difficult pill to swallow but it’s better to be red pilled than blue pilled, right? Or maybe black pilled in this case.
    Palutena: Regardless, he uses techniques hat would be considered unsafe...definitely unsafe if you ask Parenting Gaming Monthly.
    Pit: Why should I even try...I’m just being controlled...
    Viridi: Remember how overpowered Meta Knight and Bayonerfta was? In the hands of an unskilled player, they were garbage!
    Palutena: Thibk that if you do well, it’s because your powers complimented that of the gamer controlling you.
    Pit: I suppose that...
    Viridi: Just think of a fatty McFatty with greedy Cheeto figures telling you where to go and what to do!
    Palutena: VIRIDI!
    Pit: WAAAAHHAHAHA!!!!! :cries:

    The Face of VaultTech

    Vault Boy’s hair


    Snake: I feel there’s more than meets the eye.
    Colonel: That’s Vault Boy, the mascot for VaultTech.
    Snake: VaultTech? What’s that?
    Colonel: A mega corporation in the business of making under ground vaults.
    Snake: Vaults? To store what? Toys? Boxes?
    Colonel: People.
    Snake: Colonel, you’re losing me. Why people?
    Colonel: Smash is made of tons of different universes. Vault Boy comes from an universe where humanity nearly destroyed themselves through nuclear warfare.
    Snake: Yikes. We almost had that but yours truly saved the day.
    Colonel: Indeed. VaultTech built underground vaults for a select few to live in until the fallout subsided. Some opened up a two decades later while others opened up much later. Others never opened up. Basically a living tomb.
    Snake: And this guy...
    Colonel: Is the face of the company. He lent his image to the Pip-boy. The tool for survival and governance both in the vaults as well as in the radiated wasteland.
    Snake: Oh, well, I’ll be sure to give his the executive tour of SMASH then!

    Pit: Wow! This little guy keeps pulling up weapons! Some seem...overkill!
    Palutena: Oh, it’s Vault Boy. He’s the image of VaultTech.
    Viridi: VaultTech developed vaults in the earth after those silly monkeys set off tons of nuclear bombs. Many died as a result.
    Pit: Waaaaaaaait a minute. Who died? Vaults in the earth?! Nuclear bombs?! SILLY MONKEYS?!
    Palutena: You should brush up whose who in Smash. I buried myself in the Persona 5 wikia after Joker was announced.
    Pit: I think my AngelNet subscription ran out.
    Viridi: Or you forgot to pay for it!
    Palutena: Vault Boy comes from the Fallout universe. It’s where humanity launched nuclear weapons at each other. It nearly destroyed the world but underground vaults sheltered them.
    Viridi: Humanity always finds a way to mess things up.
    Pit: Ummm...color me confused but what’s a nuclear bomb?
    Viridi: You mean you don’t know!? A nuke! Bomb! BOOM!
    Palutena: Angels don’t have omnipotence and infinite knowledge. I’m not surprised he doesn’t know...
    Pit: .... I’m guessing his world suffered a lot of damage. So why does he have all these weapons?
    Viridi: Humanity was set back for centuries and, in their absence, creature mutated and the world they once lived in changed. Some managed to live in the radiated surface while others lived in cramped vaults.
    Palutena: To survive, people created crazy weapons to defend themselves with.
    Pit: I see. I think...
    Viridi: And Vault Boy is the image of the company that made the vaults!
    Palutena: He’s your go to guy to help you out in the wasteland. He’s got maps, your gear, and even radio stations!
    Pit: Geeez! Maybe he can simplify his world’s lore for me!
