It's going pretty well. It's my birthday and I don't have to work today, so I'm hoping to just relax for the rest of the day.



Difficulty doesn't matter - you can still unlock stuff by playing on easy mode. That's what I did - I figured that the original Crash Bandicoot games were an indication of what Normal mode would be like, and since I've been struggling with 2/3 of them, I figure it's better for me if I just stick to easy mode.
Happy birthday one who brings doom of the mega variety

This is all the DLC we get for Ultimate. How do you react?

Bonus Character: Piranha Plant

Fighter Pass 1
  • Joker
  • The Hero
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Heihachi Mishima
  • Crash Bandicoot
Bonus Character: Geno

Fighter Pass 2
  • Spyro the Dragon
  • Steve
  • Leon S. Kennedy/Jill Valentine (alt skins ala Robin)
  • Chell
  • Kratos
Bonus Character: Chorus Kids (Only Bonus Character with Stage)

Season 3
  • Ryu Hayabusa
  • Rayman
  • Vault Boy
  • Terry Bogard
  • Son Goku
There are some picks here I'd love, like Crash, Steve, Chell, and the Chorus Kids. Kratos is cool but I really can't see us getting him, especially not before Master Chief (since Microsoft already has connections here while Sony doesn't).

The third pass is pretty bad though, IMO. Ryu Hayabusa is the only one there that's even slightly exciting for me.

I've had doubts about it too. I bet they only animated that sonic for the scenes in the trailer.
Not too crazy to think of either, the Infinity War trailer animated Hulk in Wakanda despite him not appearing there in the actual movie. That’s a smaller scale example but movies are willing to do a lot of CGI work that will only be used in marketing

1. Sans. (already in Smash)
2. Bubsy.
3. Previously Slime because that would've meant no DQ hero.
i see what u did there
Anyway three characters I don’t want in Smash:
1. Bubsy

Uhhh that’s it for game characters I absolutely don’t want?? I’ll accept anyone else as long as one of either: Elma, KOS-MOS or a Tales of Rep gets in

Random game, name 3 characters you do NOT want for Smash. The rules are...

1. Video game character.
2. No silly picks like Putt Putt or Pajama Sam.
Hopefully I can get through this without someone giving me a detailed essay on why my opinions are wrong.

(1) A Three Houses rep.

Let's be honest, this is the character most of us are mentally prepared for but don't really want. People are burnt out on both FE characters and swordfighters in general, so put them both together and it's easy to see why this probably wouldn't be a wise choice for DLC.

(2) Geno

I can understand why he's popular in his own game, but Smash has always been an enigma to me. The dude has a few cool attacks, sure, but there's nothing in his arsenal that would make me seriously consider supporting him in 2019 when he hasn't done squat (or at least anything notable) since his debut.

(3) Any niche third-party.

If we're gonna get a bunch of third-parties, can we at least stick with the more iconic options? Add Steve or a Fortnite rep for all I care. I just want someone who's unique and easy to identify.

2. Another Pokemon...that's a humanoid starter added without considering what's popular
3. Ninten

1) Sylux. I still do not get why people seem to talk him up so much when he hasn't done a lot if anything within the Metroid series. "He'll be relevant later" isn't an excuse to push for someone who hasn't done anything if you want to push for him you do you but wait until he's actually done something.

2) A Pokemon rep from an unrepresented generation. Sure I get that you want to represent the entire Pokemon franchise and it's generations but there are other ways to do that beyond playable characters like Stages (Unova Pokemon League), Spirits and Pokeball Pokemon. Not every Pokemon could or even should be a playable character so I don't get why people want this to happen.

3) Kasumi. It's not that I dislike Kasumi I'm just very confused on why people even want her in Smash when all we have to go off of is trailers and when Royale hasn't even been published in America yet I'd really prefer for people to actually play the game and see how good the character is before supporting them for Smash cause for all we know there may be some stupid twist with the character that ruins the character for everyone. That's really the only problem I have with Kasumi though, I just don't like how people can support a character without their game even being out yet.

Happy Birthday, you must have.

Or kill the orphans, I will.
I don't know whether to like this or not...

On an unrelated note, one thing that's interesting about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3's DLC is that it will have additional story content. That wasn't the case with the previous Ultimate Alliance games (where the most you got was alternate dialogue when interacting with other characters, or different team-up bonuses), so that's a plus. I think I'll pick the game up, since I enjoyed MUA 1 and 2 and it's good to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four getting included in major Marvel releases, but I don't know if I'll do it right away. (I'm assuming it's a full price game, so $80 Canadian, which seems like a lot)

As a Kasumi supporter, I can say that it's for several reasons. A new Persona rep would be nice, and Kasumi could make for an easy echo, and could represent P5R. The character also seems to have an interesting and nice personality based on the trailers. That's just my take on it, though. For all I know other people could want her in just because she's a cute girl. Not sure.

1. Joker.

Persona 5 is a niche game that no one cares about. Would people even know who he is? I bet not. Some trashy jrpg has no place in Super Smash Brothers, and we’re better off without another anime swordsmen. Good thing he’s so underground, because he’s never getting in.

2. A Dragon Quest Hero.

Good lord, if we get another anime swordsman I’m going to scream. Dragon quest may have a little fandom in Japan but everywhere else? Trash. This would be a huge waste of a slot, and I trust Sakurai not to make a terrible decision like this. Keep Goku away from Smash.

3. Banjo & Kazooie

Banjo & Kazooie are dead as dirt. They’re only remembered by boomers wearing nostalgia glasses and they have no place in Smash, especially when games such as Minecraft or Halo are available. Their games weren’t even good, Rare isn’t even good. And who needs more wacky cartoon characters in smash? I hate cereal mascots! Lucky for me, Sakurai is definitely going to make the right decision and leave the bear and bird out of Smash.

God bless Sakurai for not putting these **** picks in the game.

Good thing Nintendo is picking the characters. Looking forward to a Three Houses character!

Yeah I'm so thankful they chose different Square reps like Geno or Sora! And they even added Steve that's even better!
I joke but I just want Geno in Smash man... I know it's too late now. He's dead. He probably always will be.
