  • I heard an argument from a Source Gaming discussion that the last fighter in the fighters pass will likely be from a Japanese company.
    This is because if they had two fighters left, they probably would show the W3P (Western Third Party) at E3 with a more Western audience.

    Is this something you agree with?

    Honestly I don't think Nintendo particularly cares...the character will get views on it no matter what. People are too focused on the Hero/Banjo thing; Steve was shown on his own

    There were theories that Steve might have been shown off at E3 2020 had there been one.
    R_N

    A theory I don't think pans out, especially when Sephiroth was meant to be shown at the VGAs. I think these appearences were all planned out as-is
    You said you didn't like Hero for the Command Selection, but what do you think about Hero as far as Dragon Quest being represented in the game?

    Also, would you like Hero if he just had a general Down Special (i.e. no command selection)?

    It's a real "arson, murder, jaywalking" situation but it's so funny to me that he is not ONLY a massive racist homophobe war crime denier but he's so stingy and overprotective of his music. They got to use an orchestral version of the theme in the Hero trailer but ONLY got to use the terrible midis with no remixes by anyone in the game.

    This reminds me of something else, they actually had a different composer for Dragon Quest Swords, which James Turner of Pokemon fame worked on.
    The composer was the first MegaMan composer if memory serves. Sugiyama is only credited for the basic themes that get in every DQ title.
    R_N
    R_N
    Correct, there's a separate stable of "spinoff" music that can be played mostly anywhere and with any quality. I believe there's even been instances where Sugiyama music ~wasnt allowed~ outside of Japan so they used that music instead.
    Oh silly me, I forgot to ask.

    What is your opinion on Kazuya in Smash?
    R_N
    R_N
    Neutral.
    I've always said I'm just kinda done with 3rd parties but he's not someone I hate and not someone I love. I respect that we got Kazuya instead of Heihachi, who would have been by far the most boring option. And I like him better than Jin just because "protagonist turned villain" is a fun twist. The suit is nice, the devil options are nice?

    I just wanted the other character to be revealed too.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    One thing I can say about Kazuya is that he's a good mix between traditional martial arts and supernatural powers, which puts him in a unique category. Ryu, Ken and Terry have some energy blast moves, but they don't make up a big portion of their moveset.

    I agree with you on the last bit. I get tired of the "It can be everybody" type discussion where people come up with lofty ideas for characters.
    Did you ever quit ACNH? I know you were entertaining dropping it in March if there wasn't a major content update.
    Since there really hasn't been one, I sort of assumed you are probably not playing it anymore.
    If you are indeed not playing it, do you still have it around in case we get a Welcome Amiibo sized update?
    R_N
    R_N
    Ah yeah I dropped it back then, when I couldn't get the Hello Kitty cards and just bottomed out on my patience with the game.
    I bought it digitally so I'll always keep it around. A welcome amiibo sized update would be nice but honestly by this point I probably am just done in general; it's hard to get back to the swing of things.
    R_N
    R_N
    That said at this point I just don't know if they're even going to bother with major updates moving forward. Roost, vegetables, cooking...I don't know if we'll ever see it.
    To put another way, I think it'd have to be WAY more than Welcome Amiibo
    I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted on Smash speculation.

    It feels like people are trying to suck out the fun of the actual surprises.

    Plus you have the endless Crash speculation that gets old.
    R_N
    R_N
    I agree with you. It's been like 4 consectuive years of smash specultionat. I'm so done! I hope e3 reveals the last 2 and were just done with it.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    To further elaborate, I don't mind speculation so much when we are thinking about who is likely to get in, but it devolves into who we want to get in.
    You have no problem in being honest, what do you think of BD/SP and Legends: Arceus?
    R_N
    R_N
    BDSP: its....fine. I think it being SUCH a literal remake is...ehhh....we'll see I guess. It's weird this is outsourced.
    Legends Arceus: Well I hated it at first when I thought it was open world but they keep saying "action adventure with rpg elements" so maybe it wont be. I dont think sneaking around is really needed though.... Should have been outsourced, gamefreak has earned no trust here.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Generic response, but I guess we'll see how Legends news develops .
    There may be announcements that further clue us in on this very different game.
    Obligatory, what did you think of the new Smash Reveal?
    R_N
    R_N
    I've never played XB2 and have always thought their designs were just...hideous and awful. But the smash redesigns are nice, I am always down for more Nintendo characters, its wild that its actually 2 characters (I thought it would be like the same character, but a few tweaks; basically a fancier stance changing) and its very funny that it's not Rex using pyra/mythra
    R_N
    R_N
    Around release Sakurai was saying how, yeah, due to the timing of release vs the timing of the project plan Springman & Rex just missed out.
    And then in Fighter Pass 2 we get an ARMS character and a XB2 character and we got Minmin and Pyra/Mythra
    I haven't sent you a message this year. Man, I need to bug you more.

    To start off, what do you think of the chances of a "Tales of" character in Smash?
    R_N
    R_N
    I think a Tales character is always on the table in some fashion. It's a relatively good selling & popular series, there's been several notable Tales games on various nintendo consoles, i'm sure there's some nonsense they can do for a play gimmick.

    it's also kind of interesting there's just...not been another Namco character since Pac-Man. Maybe Nintendo doesnt see that as a well to keep going to, for some reason.
    I think western third party characters get overhyped.

    I'm not saying we won't get another one after Banjo and Steve, but I sincerely doubt we'll get three more.
    R_N
    R_N
    Yeah the people who keep thinking we'll get like a bunch of western third parties are just kidding themselves, tbh
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    IMO, Banjo and Steve had something going for them to get included as fighters.
    Opinion on the newest Smash fighter (and the trailer that went with it)?
    R_N
    R_N
    my icy cold heart, bed bath and beyond done with third parties, melted and turns out underneath was a sephiroth stan

    was BAFFINGLY hyped and still am, its crazy i cant believe this is happening
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    I thought this was one of the best trailers. As for the fighter, I'm genuinely pleased.

    I'm really glad that FFVII gets more music and spirit representation, but what degree I guess we'll wait until the 17th to find out.
    R_N
    R_N
    It is by FAR the best of the DLC trailers if nothing else. They pulled out all the stops for it; the fact Cloud even got a CG model is pretty notable.
    Is the story in Three Houses any good? I assume it's gotten a better reception than Fates.
    R_N
    R_N
    The story is pretty good though some people really hate it and find it a mess. On the whole people like it though.

    And lord knows they like it enough for Endless Discourse
    Dumb question, but let's say that New Horizons didn't add the content you wanted by March, and you put the game up.
    Would you pick it back up if they implemented a satisfactory about of content later on?
    I might ask more than one person this, but...

    I am going to get Fire Emblem: Three Houses as part of that Gamestop Black Friday deal.

    I'm wondering which difficulty I should try. For reference, I'm looking for something similar to Path of Radiance Normal, or Awakening Hard.
    R_N
    R_N
    You probably want to start on Hard Mode, then. I personally enjoyed the Normal mode, but for a number of people it is too easy.
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Does the game have extra excursion missions you can do like in Awakening and FE: Fates/Birthright?
    R_N
    R_N
    Every weekend you can spend your poitns (it'll make more sense when you get there) to go on non-paralogue side missions, yeah. But you have to balance those with the same points you use to do paralogues. Normal mode has a specific mission that you can redo as much as you want without wasting time....I think? It's been a while, but I believe so anyway.
    Hey R_N, if you are signed up to the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter, could you do me a favor?

    Can you look and see when the last time you got a Newsletter from them was?

    I haven't received any since late 2019.
    R_N
    R_N
    i straight up do not think i've gotten once since 2018
    i've always had issues with the newsletter so I am not thrilled at the zarude code being locked behind one. I even logged back in to make sure its still enabled!
    Can you take a Calm painting off my mom's hands?

    You can either keep it or send it back to me.
    Are you a guy who buys the fighter passes, or do you purchase select characters in Smash Ultimate?
    R_N
    R_N
    I passed on the first fighter's pass until minmin came out. I figured, ok, the first FP characters were thankfully not terrilbe and Minmin got me excited for FP2 so may as well get the whole set


    After seeing steve tbh I wish I hadn't bought the second pass but ceslevie
    Who is your favorite Fighter Pass fighter in Ultimate so far?

    I like Hero.
    R_N
    R_N
    Definitely MinMin!
    She's just really fun to play, I like her al ot.


    Heros' actually my least favorite lmao. Just...nothing about him clicks with me at all. His attacks feel too short, slow and I haaaaate his down b. Too awkward
    Auraninja
    Auraninja
    Boo. I mean, okay.

    Hero's Down B is pretty fun to me, but when my brain turns off, I just fish through the menu and forget to use his other attacks.

    I like Hero's other Specials. Zapple covers distance; Kafrizz deals good damage.

    I guess my second favorite is... ...probably Joker. He has a fun playstyle.
    Despite how your opinions are often harsher than mine, I'm happy that you at least entertain my questions and whatnot.

    It makes sense
    I have no issue with minecraft or people who do like them

    But I despise how they look in smash. It looks fake, in a very bad way.

    How would you change it?

    Either a complete visual rework in some fashion or just....not having them in the game, really.
