I find it funny that Sony leaves E3, E3 gets cancelled and then Sony basically said, "Fine, I'll do it myself".

As for Nintendo, Famicom Detective Club Remake... in Japan. Otherwise they're publishing Bravely Default II outside Japan. Beyond that it's just stuff like Metroid and Zelda coming... eventually.

A little concerned given all the hullabaloo about Nintendo being unable to have a Direct in June like usual. They keep saying everything is on track but where is it? Hopefully it's just something similar to Microsoft where their big thing still exists, it's just coming a little later.
I'm cautious to say "July Direct", because I just doubt it.

August seems likely.


I just really feel like there's a fighter coming in September though, so a reveal in August, only to drop them the next month, while obviously not unheard of(Hero), would be a bit shocking. The Amiibo restock, still going on a year and a half, has always lined up with the month of a new character coming out, and the next one's September, so, that's where I'm putting my egg basket.

Another character in July is too soon anyways.

People that predicts Geno because 77 and the whole 7 Stars is the same as that March anniversary they predicted. I wouldn't count on the character until September given Amiibo theory which has yet to have been broken.

I don't want to sound spoilt given we just got Min Min but damn were we blessed with E3 last year giving two DLC reveals.

I mean, that's kinda been the norm for E3 for awhile, so I wouldn't called that 'spoiled'.


They really can't wait 'that' long between releases if their end goal is December 2021, they can go about 3/4(maybe) months between before they run out of time.

Just meant like, we got a bunch of new stuff today but I still want word of what's next.

I know we'll learn eventually

all i'm saying is that one of these remixes received a hundred times more love than the other, even if the other one still isn't bad

i have been up for far more hours than any other human should have so uh

more music baybee!!!!!!!!

Lead singer of Sianvar formerly, he has a unique voice. I have a lot of issues with post-hardcore because it's the only core genre I like, but I am not a fan of screamo since that comprises of 90% of core music in general. However, his screams are barely screaming at all based on how high his pitch is, so I like his songs.

Also, the guitarist in Nova Charisma literally looks like Sr. Pelo and it bothers me.

Main guitarist for a lot of bands, main guitarist for Sianvar formerly. He also founded Dance Gavin Dance in '05 but I hate most of that band's songs solely for the lead singer. Anything he touches is a work of art for guitarwork though.

Neat pop punk band, funny name, kinda like Never Loved.

Post-hardcore band with the revelation that their screaming doesn't really bother me because it isn't an unnecessary deep screaming. It's probably because the Record label that picked them up is literally Will Swan's, and all of his bands under that label are like this.


I think I already talked about Makari last time but I'd check them out, they're a really good rock band.

'gotta say, hitting Min-Min's dragon laser at like the tip of it & getting a KO with that is one of the most satisfying things ever.

Otherwise, Min-Min is fun, but quite weird, and dat recovery, oof. Still think she has potential to be great, but only time will tell. (At the very least, I can see her being great in Doubles)

Falco Dair landing lag is also hella fast now, like I'm no Falco main, but I'm really curious to hear how the frame data compare between pre-patch & post-patch.

What's wrong with her recovery? I thought it was on par with Byleth and Joker's up specials?

My guess on when we could see the reveal for the next fighter will be some time between mid July to late August.

When it will release I'm not going to guess.

Well contrary to Byleth, she can't use it to gain some height if she land it on a opponent, and she isn't as as fast as Joker is in the air to mix-up her approach, from the little I played atleast. In fact, off-stage, her aerial are really awkward, and you're probably going to get easily edgeguarded if the opponent know what they're doing.

Of course, it's day 1, so maybe we find more way to recover with her or just deal with opponent off-stage, but for now, she seem like the kind of fighter you want to stay on stage at all cost.

You know Mega Man the Wily Wars? How about Capcom does that. Again. With every Mega Man game 1-10. And a new Wily Tower. With over 100 different Robot Master weapons and power ups to pick and choose from.

I'm saving this picture for historical documentation, the stage select screen being a perfect square fills me with joy.

**** the respawning enemies in Battle for Bikini Bottom. I've been stuck in the Trench of Advanced Darkness because of dying on the platforming challenges and having to switch back and forth between characters every five seconds to clear the enemies out again. Seriously. I killed you so stay dead!

Ok. Serious question. If we got a FNaF character in Smash, should it be a serious character from the franchise like Freddy, Baby, or Springtrap? Or should it be one of the franchises goofier side-ventures like FNaF World, Freddy in Space, or even the Animdude?

On the wild off chance that we do get a FNAF character, it'll definitely be one from the main games. It's the most accurate representation of the series. FNAF World and Freddy In Space aren't meant to be taken seriously, and There Is No Pause Button isn't a FNAF game. The way I see it, having a spin-off character get in before a main series character is like if Todd Snap got in before Pikachu did. Just my five cents though.

Or like Joker getting in before Jack Frost or Demi-Fiend.... wait....

In all seriously though, I agree with you. Although I do think the Animdude boss from FNaF World would be hilarious. As would Space Freddy (and they could even donate the proceeds for that character to Saint Jude).

To be fair, Joker is the playable character in P5, not Jack Frost. Also I have never heard of Demi-Friend in my life so I can't say anything there.
He's the only non-generic player character from the Shin Megami Tensei games and as such is usually the choice of fans when picking a character from the series. My point was emphasizing that a Persona character got in before an SMT one.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie Game: Rehydrated. That should happen now.

Can I just say how much the whole "hype responsibly" thing annoys me. Like all the posts on the Crash Bandicoot subreddit are like "100 levels might not actually mean 100 levels" and I'm like do you not want to be excited? Like why is it any of your business? If the game doesn't actually have 100 levels and the advertisement lied then Activision deserves the heat that will generate from people's disappointment. Just stop being a killjoy.

So, quick question. Do y'all know if the Link's Awakening spirits were ever added to the spirit board normally? I missed the event.

I usually just take it as “don’t get too caught up in the hype that you take things too far if things don’t go your way”
