Even though this sounds insane, I would like to see their take on a sniper rifle modeled directly after the Super Scope.

The Precision Syndicate, a gun manufacturing company. The producer made this custom gun for a friend, so you would probably have to befriend one of the employees to get your own premium Zapper.
Ah dang that sucks.

Speaking of guns.
Enter the Gungeon.
Get it.
If for no other reason than the glorious writing.

One of the guns you can get is just a lower case r that shoots out the word B U L L E T

The description?

"The letter r looks like a gun.
It is rare, but not unheard of, for abstract concepts to take gun form when discussed near the Gungeon."

SmashBoards was the last place I'd expect to find arguments about politics, gun laws, and the likes.

Is news so slow we ran out of things to talk about?
To be honest, discussions about all sorts is common in the off-topic nonsense threads like this one. Not just on Smashboards, but anywhere.

I mean, I've discussed abortion on a Spyro the Dragon/Skylanders forum before. For example.

And yes, news is very much out. We're pretty much in dry season until E3. Not just Nintendo fans, but Kingdom Hearts fans, Sonic fans, and all sorts of fanbases.

Coming across this thread, I've seen people post their MBTI and political compass results, might just as well post mine.

I just learned that humans are bio-luminescent but it's so weak our eyes can't see it

Edit: I just found out ALL creatures are, to a degree, bio-luminescent so it makes it a bit less special...

We are always thinking about the next iteration of Advance Wars and Fire Emblem. We can't reveal any of those details tonight, but when the time is right we will.
Huh? I never knew this was a thing.

This was from E3 2014 which really wasn't a whole long time ago. Hitoshi Yamagami stated that Intelligent Systems is always thinking about Fire Emblem and Advance Wars and that both series would be announced when the time was right. FE Fates would end up being revealed about 7 months after this interview so that gives me hope that Advance Wars 5 is going to happen very soon. Maybe they didn't start working on AW5 until they were finished working on Fates so that could mean they're going to reveal AW5 at this year's E3. It's not a sure thing but it's still shows that AW isn't dead as some might think it is.

I can see where you're coming from, but it's rather subjective. Because, again, it doesn't objectively affect the quality of the books. It wasn't added into it, because it didn't need to.

Because really, it's a small trait to Dumbledore.(A huge number of characters aren't to shown to have a sexuality of any kind, now that I think about it.) He just happens to like men, just like people happen to cake. Though some people are more expressive and passionate about cake then others....~
Also, I rushed this post out because I was cut off. I have two things to add.

Something something adding traits outside of the story is unfornately very common something something.(Especially for gay characters, like Ash Crimson and Kung Jin.)

And something something Zoroarking's chocolate cake is EO.

Can we talk about something less serious? Like how Sacred Stones has the best bosses in the series

How am I subtle about it?

^I meant quite the opposite, actually. :p

Also, darn it, I should have not clicked on that spoiler.

So after some reminiscing about past video games, what are some dormant series/games that you wish were still around or wish there was a remake of these days?

Banjo-Kazooie
Conker
Crash Bandicoot
Classic Spyro/Legend of Spyro
NiGHTs

Also Rodea: The Sky Soldier will most likely become this, so I guess I just hope for a sequel to quell my fears.

I still want to play the second NiGHTS game.

When it was released on the wii, I wanted it! But I didn't have the money back then

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger.

Why? Because he's just that great and one of the few Aussie video game stars out there.

I managed to get a copy two years ago. However, the disc was scratched and so I couldn't play through Helen's story, only Will's.

It is really good though, I don't know why people say it's underwhelming. I found it to do exactly what a sequel should do, just expanding on what the original established. Maybe other people didn't play with the Classic Controller, because I played it with that and found it controlled fine.

Did you never finish SS? You had a Joshua avi recently so you must have at least played it, right?
I am. But I haven't gotten THAT far yet. But far enough to where I know what's going on in that pic.

I would've probably beat the game already though if drama didn't happen last week to make me depressed.

So the only Chibi-Robo! that didn't get released in English ("Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Richie Ōsōji!" for Nintendo DS) finally got a fan translation.

I still want to play the original GameCube game, but I ain't paying for what eBay is asking for.

Classic-style Castlevania
Crash Bandicoot
Darkstalkers
F-Zero
Jak and Daxter
The Last Story
Mega Man
Metal Gear Rising

2D Metroid
NiGHTS
Spyro
(non-Skylanders)
Virtua Fighter

I realize that some of these sequels have little to no chance of happening.

Hmmm...Does Metroid still count as dormant despite the upcoming spin-off title?

Apparently the democrats have "Super Delegates" that can vote for whoever they want regardless of what people voted for

That seems like it's going against he spirit of "representing the people"

Where one candidate can have the people's votes, but not win the state

. . .Alright, I need a refresher.

How many more days until we can expect a CoroCoro leak to drop, again?

Not that it'll necessarily have anything in it considering what tends to happen whenever a fandom anticipates anything from an event, but I need something to keep an eye on.

This a thousand times. Amusement Vision really outdid themselves with the installments that they worked on.

A full Nintendo X Namco X Capcom X SEGA game would be awesome. Oddly enough, Only Ryu and Lucina are playable in both.
I really need a proper Nintendo/Namco/Capcom/SEGA all-star game (Preferably a Smash-esque game or racing game)

Why are still arguing over Dumbledore again?

This is now the second day we're arguing over this.
this is what happens when coro Coro doesn't leak!

Advance Wars as an NX launch title could be the most amazing thing ever!

CoroCoro leaks tend to drop around the 12th or 13th of every month, so we'll definitely hear news very soon.

They didn't go 'OHMIGAWD WORLD CHANGING NOOS' like thy usually do when hyping up new stuff, so don't expect much
Yeah, I'm ready for that. Heck, I'm even ready for the scenario where they show off only the starters, the new player trainers, and box art then show very few stuff and say "What does this even mean" like how many first-month-of-scans usually go.
