So it appears Sony is trying to buy out the Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Contra IPs from Konami. What does this mean for our boi and the Goemon franchise if Konami sells that out to Sony or another company too? I hope Nintendo buys the Goemon IP from Konami if anybody does. They have Etsunobu Ebisu and the rest of the old Goemon team working at Good Feel at Nintendo so they could lend them to work on the Goemon games again.

Also Goemon would be a lock for Smash in the future along with maybe Ebisumaru, Sasuke, and Yae to boot. :awesome:

No no no.
For starters, this poor attempt beamed from a 4 Chan post. No company in their sane mind would sell an IP, as borrowing is always an option.. and it keeps royalties. Also, personally, I don't want any company touching Goemon except Konami. No one would do him just but Konami. If Nintendo were the holy saviors they would've saved their own.. Mother, Star Fox, Kid Icarus, F-Zero.. and the list goes on. Goemon would drown in their forever waiting list. (Unless he was Goelda, Goerio).

You should also know that there are rumors of Sony handling the development of an upcoming Silent Hill, but not "acquiring" the IP.. simply borrowing. Sony does movie like games, inclined to horror or violence. They don't have the mind set for a Goemon game.

Totally agreed. Nintendo can't even save their own franchises from obscurity, what makes anyone think they're gonna do it with Konami's franchises?

It's the same with people who think Rare will be "saved" if Nintendo chose to buy them back from Microsoft, and that Nintendo would get them making new Banjo games again. They don't seem to realize this would require all three companies to want to go through with this, and even if they did by some miracle, it's no guarantee that new Banjo/Conker/etc. games would get made, or that they would be what fans actually want. Rare doesn't even have several of its key staff remaining that worked on those games (although since they are freelance now, they could come back to work on them anyways), and they easily forget that Rare was always media-shy and unwilling to do sequels even back when they were owned by Nintendo. Some of their games had such protracted development schedules that they completely missed the platforms they were supposed to come out on if they didn't get cancelled completely (like Donkey Kong Racing). Starfox Adventures was supposed to be an N64 game, and Kameo/PD0 were originally Gamecube games.

Smash fans tend to live in this fantasy bubble that all these franchises are seen as profitable and viable by the companies just because they appear in Smash, and that getting in Smash basically guarantees they're going to get new sequels and come back into the limelight after decades of obscurity, and that new games are as easy to make as Sakurai just snapping his fingers and magically making a retro character show up in Smash. They make so many assumptions about game development based on nothing.

I'll say though.. as it's a reason why we're trying for Goemon in Smash..
It's a beacon. There's no denying that being in that spot gives a lot of light and attention.. despite not liking it, look at where Fire Emblem is right now.
This is what I believe the aim of most fans trying to get their obscure characters in.. what I don't like however, is asking for characters that has no need for that shine.. cool to add one or two, but man, more for the rich less for the obscure poor.

Rare, yeah. If fans were asking for Banjo because of Banjo, that's fine. But if their aim was Rare.. well, they were way off with that aim. Dismantled, half on Playtonic and again, Nintendo is not richer than Microsoft and won't spend a dime on it.. they didn't Luigi's 3. Banjo, is having it way better under Microsoft.

It's the same case for Geno.. try telling that to the fans though.
If by a miracle Square "lent" Geno to Smash. This won't bring anything new to the table. I kept saying this, no new RPGs. Nintendo already passed that point and answered with Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi RPG.. the latter went as far as Nintendo cared too.

In Goemon's case, he only need that western introduction for a revival.. that's it. He's not tangled like most wishes.

Btw, how much was that Rocky & Pocky? always said I want to pick it.. still did not :)
Sparkster is a Smash wish, Shinobi III is the best ever and well.. you got two gems right there. There're reproductions in the market, take care.. unless you don't care.

I'd rather none. And if I to choose, I'd take Sony. They're more capable and closer to Konami's mind set than Nintendo.
Just for starters, we won't even have a speaking crew..

Anyway, Pocky and Rocky arcade is already released by Hamster on Switch if you're interested. SNES expensive, there are other options *wink*

Pocky & Rocky is really fun, but also pretty tough. It doesn't pull any punches in its difficulty. This series is an absolute joy and it pains me that scalpers have jacked up the price considerably. I think it should be experienced by more people. Content-wise it almost seems like it could take place in the same universe as many of the Goemon games, as you play as a shrine maiden warding off ghosts and monsters from Japanese folklore, many of whom you'd recognize from Goemon games as well. It gets to the point where you'd almost anticipate seeing Goemon and his friends showing up in the next scene. I think that would make for a fun crossover if Natsume ever revived P&R the way they did with Wild Guns and Ninja Warriors.

At times like this, for really rare games that are hard to find it sure helps owning a SNES Mini. They're really easy to hack and add games on and also useful for creating a facsimile of what it would be like to play it on original hardware. But in my opinion nothing beats playing these games in their original cartridge form on a CRT, the way it was meant to be enjoyed. No emulation issues, no graphics upscaling problems, just the way the games were meant to be played.

Shame we don't live near each other because I'd love to invite you guys over to play.

Is this on Switch Online or is this a Japanese exclusive? Either way, I'm going to try to play it as soon as possible.
No, it's on eshop.. US eshop too. (it took its time to get out of the JP eshop)

If you have enough mula you can spend it on an Analogue Super Nt.
You're looking at $250 here... I think.

Impact Song models. He looks really weird.
Actually I find it cool, but I always thought it had one big mistake.. the head, almost the entirety of it.
The afro/russian hat is supposed to be a room. Also did he need a bite when his mouth is always wide open, an entrance and a laser beam canon?
The double eye pegs are for what? those where the seats are supposed to be. that area is the cockpit.
Well, good for the 64 days.. the rest is perfect.

Exactly! Where is the cockpit? It all just looks like gears and you can't exactly pinpoint where the cockpit is at all. Even though you really can't see the cockpit in the Impact dash scene, you can see it in the final scene of the game after you defeat Dancin' and Lily in outer space and before the credits:

You've been watching the cockpit way before the end

It's always been right behind the eyes, sandwiched between the afro and the mouth

and yeah.. maybe like Sonic.. that area between the two eyes might be transparent or it's a screen..
Just.. don't ask :)

Also, thanks for the video.. what a great ending.

I do share this dream.. every bit of it. Better than those crumbs of pixels or those ultra expensive tiny figs.
I don't even mind a nendoroid ones too. I don't like those but they fit the size.. and figma are mostly slik/life like figures.. well whatever, just give me an articulated affordable one.

Haven't been here for quite a while -- a lot of interesting thoughts here to explore too...

But I hope that unless I'm being a :079:, the above news might be good to hear for some.
Thank you.
Now as much as I'm interested.. two thoughts
- I hope it's not PC. I want it exact.
- A site and a someone comes to mind.. I still want to punch those two so hard. So hard One Punch Man would think it's brutal.

Good Reference. thank you. This is his head so far. I think it is slightly off. but not sure why.
Still. Will keep trudging along on it.
Not bad, but if you're feeling so here're some note..
- eyes should be more apart (say a pupil each).
- eyebrows should be thicker and less slanted.
- eyes should be a little bit narrower.
- nose a tad bit shorter.
- last, his sideburns should go straight down and also cover some of his face (depending on which model you're going for).

I tried but don't seem to get the mouth right... yet
Don't get fooled by how cool this one looks.. it's just that he's like a ninja now.. with a mouth.. ehh.. not yet. Also, I think his eyes should be more slanted. At least this will give you an idea of what I mean. Oh, and I should've raised his bangs.

Maybe just try not to give him a smile.. see how that goes.
Where did you get his mouth anyway?
