I know you're all sick and tired of me ranting about King K. Rool and the people who main him either being right to lose with him or lucky to win with him, but I just want to see more good results from him until I can shut up about him. If any exist.
You know, I think obscure Mario characters have a good future:

K. Rool in Smash was HUGE. It'll be a moment in Nintendo history which cannot be overstated, that probably lit something or other inside Nintendo's walls, considering that a year or two after K. Rool came aboard, mobile Mario spin-offs started embracing lesser known characters - we saw Baby Wario from Yoshi's Island DS get his PHD, King Bob-Omb; Nabbit; and Dixie Kong took to the tracks, Goomba got its third playable role, even the dolphins got in on the fun.

Now, you could mention the Origami King interviews, but considering how long game development took that probably started development around the time of K. Rool's reveal, before they knew there was a demand for classic characters to come back. Remember that Sakurai said he had no clue fans wanted K. Rool until the ballot.

KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 I think the safest bet for a Mario spin-off character to put in a Mario game, specifically Kart, would be either K. Rool or Ashley. Their popularity is one thing, but it's also that someone unfamiliar with the extended Mario universe can take a quick glance at these characters and tell exactly what they're all about - K. Rool is clearly a greedy yet goofy tyrant, while Ashley is clearly a moody pre-teen witch. You could add them to a Mario Kart game and casual fans wouldn't think much of them. Character design goes a long way for a series like Mario.

In regards to Ashley, her situation is peculiar; other Nintendo divisions have been so hesitant to use characters made by the WarioWare staff that she showed up in Badge Arcade, the title screen for a tank game, and literally nothing else besides the usual Smash cameos. We really don't know if or when they'll take that first step, especially since we don't know if WW is getting something on Switch.

K. Rool is increasingly looking like a shoo-in for sure, since DK already has established presence in Mario spin-off stuff.

I get what you're saying, but I don't completely agree. I feel that there is like a split between Mario Games, with some games having the extremely limited cast (2D Mario Games & Paper Mario with Yoshi, Jr., Koopalings, lots of Toads etc), a few getting more leeway (Sports, Kart, Party with Wario, DK, Rosalina etc.)) and then a few characters that would be lucky if they got a trophy/spirit (Paper or M&L originals, characters from DKC/Warioware with the sole exception of Kremlings/K Rool Strikers/Super Sluggers)
Remember when people genuinely believed Poochy and Adeleine would be DLC? I'd happy with either of those 2 but there's no denying that's pretty bottom-of-the-barrel for a series that doesn't even have Waluigi yet.

I was one of them who wanted Poochy as DLC. Good times...^-^

Basically, yeah. Him showing up in a Koizumi-made Mario game is a bit of a big deal.

Even if he isn't playable this time, we're starting to run out of major Mario characters to add as fighters in Smash, so he'd be a logical addition for one of the next choices. Not to mention that recent Yoshi games had him featured in promos and the box art.

Agree, Yoshi hasn't gotten a newcomer for years. (Same as Wario.)
People joke about anti-vaxxers/anti-maskers also being anti-seat belt, but funnily enough I've actually met someone IRL who thought he was too good a driver to wear a seat belt.

He was a taxi driver, I don't know if he still is, but I doubt it.
I'm not completely against the idea of literally firing all police in America and replacing them all with newly trained officers under new standards.
Not all at once, but the problem is so widespread that the entire police force must be cleansed and replaced.
There aren't just a few bad apples. Quite frankly, there are only a few GOOD apples, and as unfair as it is to the "good cops", the purge must happen, and any of the few good cops can reapply under the new standards.
I started maining Mii Brawler for the memes - you know, jump into quickplay and embarrass some kids by beatin' them up with Garfield, Squidward's House, The Noid, or 7 Grand Dad - but I kept maining Mii Brawler for counter throw. Let me tell you, some moves are just made to be countered. DK's F-Smash, Falcon Punch and Mario Fair are some of my favourite counter targets.
I'm starting my own religion.
Here's a verse: "Verily, I say unto you, for the kingdom of salvation has already brewed within my gut and is resting in my sphincter. All you have to do now, my child, is pull my finger!" 👈
Really frustrated about the future. COVID really impacts all of us. Those of us who have to meet specific graduation for school requirements get hit hard, if not harder.

Can we PLEASE cooperate to get this virus out of the way?

I swear if we were in an alternate timeline with a different president who didn't deny science, health experts, and factual information, the impact of this virus would've been nowhere near as bad as it is now. People of power seriously need to realize how much of an influence they have on the general public, and that their major stupidity can brainwash an entire nation into thinking they don't need to wear a mask in public, because the virus will just "disappear".
Trying hard not to get upset over a children's video game. :D
Someone suggested that I secretly have fun even when I lose but I refuse to admit it, but I don't think that's the case, is it?

I watched so much One Piece over the past few days so I'll post my summarized thoughts below:
  • The Sabaody Island arc was great but at the same time it was really hard to watch because of all of the human trafficking stuff.
  • I already knew of the Celestial Dragon punch scene before watching the show but it was still the most satisfying thing ever.
  • How the heck are they ever gonna beat someone like Kizaru? His fruit power is just way too broken.
  • Even though the Strawhats obviously weren't dead after what Kuma did, I still teared up at the scene of Luffy grieving.
  • I last left off at Impel Down right before they're about to fight the Warden with poison powers. I'm really loving the relationship between Luffy and the older villains.

We can spoiler these comments now? AWESOME

Sabaody is great, who was your favorite Supernova shown? They'll all be relevant to the story at some point so you'll get to see them all shine.

The Duval face reveal is one of the funniest gags in the whole series (Brook laughing at it helped a lot). Rayleigh is also a cool guy, note he was able to be im contact with Kizaru so he's not invincible, there is a trick. It's a special tool that'll help us later!

Impel Down is one of my favorite arcs, idk how far you're into it but

Crocodile

shows up to help and this and Marineford solidified the guy as my favorite character in One Piece. You'll also meet the boy Jinbe who's probably like my second favorite character. Now we understand why this is one of my favorites.

I look forward to your final Impel Down thoughts.

My favorite Supernova would probably be Jewelry Bonney because I like anime girls that eat a lot of food I like her design and ability.

The Duval face reveal was hilarious. My brother asked me to guess who the masked person could be and literally all of my guesses were wrong. I'm guessing Haki will be able to get through Devil Fruit powers so they can beat the tougher marines like Kizaru.

I last left off at Luffy, Buggy, Mr. 3, and Mr. 2 about to fight the Warden with poison powers. I'm not sure who the person could be so I won't click that spoiler tag just yet. I do know that Crocodile and this big head guy based on Tim Curry help out for a bit so it could also be one of them.

Bonney unfortunately hasn't had her time to shine yet in the story besides starting to tease her history. Only she and Mad Monk Urouge haven't had significant parts yet.

I like to theorize that Urouge is from Birka, the same island Eneru was from that he destroyed, he probably faced off against him and lost then retreated to the sea as "The Fallen Monk Pirates". Won't be able to know for sure until after the current arc, I assume.

Today I found out there are actually people who say Castlevania shouldn’t have been in Smash because it’s a “dead franchise.”

I previously thought those people only existed in nightmares

Oh yeah I forgot that Smashboards uses a special platform that other forum websites use. I remember Smogon being a splitting image to Smashboards back when Sw/Sh was being leaked. Smogon also has multiple emojis that are used for reactions

I don’t know much about this but from what I do know, the reaction situation is a result from changes made by the forum software during the maintenance. It seems that the forum software allows for multiple reactions that can be used but I don’t know if we can or allowed to implement these here on on the site. One reaction example I saw for Xenforo was, like, a fire reaction. Much like this 🔥

On a side note, every link to anything uploads a preview now, so be extra careful of what you post on these profiles.
I feel the reason a lot of people find Crash games "Dark Souls hard" is because they play them as if they're 2D Mario games. Despite appearing derivative at first sight, Crash games are about precision where Mario games are about exploration. They're the very definition of "linear", which is their strong point IMO. A Crash collectathon makes about as much sense as a Banjo corridor game.
In Smash 6, Min Min's shield needs to be the one she uses in ARMS while guarding. The Spring Man assist trophy has his ARMS shield so why not give Min Min hers?

Hey, yep! If you're interested, the region of Upstate NY / Rochester has its own smash discord:

If you attend any of the local colleges and universities, many of them have their own discords as well.
I legit kinda missed you while the Smashboards shutdown took place.

Was even thinking about going today to my uncle's House to take a picture of his Cat and share It at the Social Thread but sadly he is currently at the south of the island celebrating something. Oh well.

Just hoping your weekend went well enough.
I hate how if you go to your profile --> postings, you can no longer view any posts unless it was from around 2015 or after the maintenance ended.
I'd say refusing to use a character for not being "relevant" is more out-of-touch with younger generations than adding a forgotten character.

The internet has been readily accessible to consumers for almost 4 decades now, meticulous fan wikis get tens of thousands of visitors every day and retro games are in fashion with younger generations. Kids know who characters like K. Rool and Geno are, even more so now than when he was first introduced in the case of the latter.

Hell, those who aren't familiar with such characters will still appreciate them - you don't need the full backstory and lore to confidently say "I will play as the fat crocodile king this round".

(I should note I'm refering to any sort of multiplayer game that uses existing characters, not just Smash)
I'm not a Kirby fan so I may be missing out on something, but honestly a generic Waddle Dee sounds way more enticing as a newcomer than Bandanna Waddle Dee - they have bows, axes, balloons, swing ropes, missile launchers, cars, snowballs and parasols - why limit them to just a spear?

Cause Bandana is a separate character. A main character. He is a sort of leader to the Waddle Dees. Adding a regular Dee would make no sense, as Bandana is a main character. Bandana could also pull those things out of his arsenal too, theres nothing stopping him.
Question: if Goku and SpongeBob ACTUALLY got in Smash, be it as Mii Costumes or proper fighters, would y'all still accept them as additions to the roster? honestly I'd be 100% cool with it, through it obviously won't happen and isn't worth campaigning for in the slightest.

I'm still of the mindset that smash needs to include only characters who's origin's have been from videogames. I know some will try to point out rob or lucario, but both those characters despite not "technically" appearing as game characters first, were designed with a video game in mind. Lucario was another pokemon, who happened to just make his big debut in the cartoon first. ROB was a toy designed purely for the purpose of being used with a video game. (this also means any of those "toys to life" characters like from SKylanders could technically be on the table...)

But more importantly those 2 characters are also first party. And nintendo can do whatever they want with those. But if it's 3rd party, then it really needs to stick to the video game characters only rule, whether for costumes, or actually playable.

But...this is also sakurai and he's shown time and time again that he'll do w/e the hell he wants, so if Spongebob, Shrek, Goku, or any other meme non-video game character got in, there's not much any of us could ever do about it anyway.


...

You know what? so long as Geno Gets in I really don't care anymore tbh...
Fall Guys has over 2 million sales within a week. I never would've seen this game to get as big as it is right now, but it's great to see this game become a huge success within a short timeframe. I'm curious to see where the devs take this game next.
