  1. Random thought: There isn't really a game that's tried to use the same "damage" mechanic as the Yoshi series, where the player is technically invincible to most forms of harm, but has a time limit to fulfill a "mission", for lack of term, before the player loses a life. No game that I can think of atm anyway.

     

     

    Same goes for Sonic now that I think about it. It's kinda like Yoshi's Island (Or rather, Sonic did it somewhat first), just that the "mission" is easily completed for the first few times, and the life's not over if the "mission" is failed. Pretty genius game design imo, surpised that they haven't really been emulated much, if at all.

      Pretty sure the Wario Land series did that.

      Getting hit by something usually meant getting a power up to advance and/or explore through the levels.

      Coincidentally, there's a Sonic 2 hack that combines it with Yoshi's Island.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Jury's out on his role in the movie, but Freeza still has the biggest checklist towards being a God of Destruction. Morally detached, no hesitation toward destruction, and surprisingly true to his word when the chips are down. That translates well towards being a deity tasked with destroying things in a way that earns him a feared yet respected reputation. That could be the angle they're going for with him, where it's his literal god-given mandate to destroy, yet will always be at the mercy of his Angel if he gets out of hand.
  3. Pirates Island is the best final stage in the series by sole virtue of being aesthetically unique.

  4. OK, that original Rouge concept art looks better than the Rouge we have now. She looks like she has more spunk and pep to her.

    Goku just divebombing Jiren in the end there was just crazy amazingly awesome.

    small Super spoiler.

      I really liked the SSJ form fizzling in and out

      It really showcased how much Goku was forcing his own body at that point.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Goku fading in and out of Super Saiyan at the final moments genuinely shook me. It feels magnificently and perfectly appropriate that the universe's survival was won, not by Ultra Instinct, not by Goku's and Freeza's best forms acquired in Super, but by their most iconic forms in Dragonball, and the forms that led to Beerus coming into contact with Goku in the first place and effectively starting the Super series.

    So basically, Bergamo imploring for the Zen'Os to spare the universes after the tournament wasn't necessary. That was already the endgame. Alternatively, you can believe that Bergamo's plea, and Zen'Os' reaction to it, spurred Goku to consider that that was actually an option in the end with no recompense, thus making Bergamo the secret savior all along. :V

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Dr. Gero's modifications to Android 17 were so proficient that it spurred Bulma to break the fabric of time with the creation of the time machine, just so the world can have a future without the Android threat. Said time travel is Zamasu's excuse for why he hounds Future Trunks, deigning it as mortals acting as mortals would and committing selfish acts that defy the rules of the gods. Present 17 wins this tournament, and gets the one means to obtain any selfish thing he wanted with no strings attached, but defies the chance for any of that, including his cruise ship, and selflessly brings back the destroyed universes, which effectively beats Zamasu's philosophy about selfish mortals to death. That is some fantastic irony.

      So THAT's how he's always faster than Sonic.

  10. Are there Sonic songs that you were originally indifferent to, but they steadily started to sound better to you over time? 

     

    Hidden Base from SA2 is currently hitting the right notes for me now.

      Still enjoy the remixes of it (such as James Wong's) more though.

    Just as well, everyone expected Freeza to save Goku's ass when or if UI ran out. The writers were on the same wavelength, evidently, and threw in that curveball. A Goku/Vegeta tag team conclusion might have been the "right" way to end this, but I'll take this unpredictable team. Because now, it's the Saiyan race, the Emperor, and Earth altogether for the final moments. They are U7's signature races, so they all get to see this to the end.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Technically there is no rule about that; the rule is that you can't attack from the stands. Otherwise 17 kicking Vikal straight into the stands could have constituted as attacking the stands, just with a body as the weapon.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    17's explosion was so conclusive that even the Grand Priest said he had died from it. ....if Goku and Freeza had fallen, would he even had noticed it and declared the fight a draw, or would he had declared U7 the loser despite that not being true. The GP's been rigging this tournament from the start for U7, hasn't he. :v

    I'm terrified.
  15. I can't wait to see chibi Mighty and chibi Ray in Metallic Madness. As for Encore Mode, the first thing that came to mind was Hard Mode missions in Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, and Shadow the Hedgehog. The general layouts of the stages are the same, but new obstacles (and the absence of some stage assets) are now implemented that you have to take time for negotiating around them. Think how City Escape Hard Mode introduced rapid-fire shielded GUN sentry robots immediately, barricades, and removed some of the hovering platforms. And if you want a non-Hard Mode-esque application to this, City Escape Hard Mode placed in more, smaller ramps in the boarding section and midway that don't really impede your progress, but could mess up your flow if you weren't ready for them. Apply that to 2D environments, and there you go.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Guess Ultra Instinct was just about to burn out, but just before it did and Goku fell, he subconsciously picked up Freeza's energy and did Instant Transmission to get to his side. From there the two of them will just stall out the last 10 or so seconds and win with numbers.
  17. What timezone is that 3:30 timeslot for today?

      It's in Texas, so it's Central.

      If you're on the East coast, it'll be at 4:30.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Keep them in their Freelancer class, pull moves from the other classes like the Valkyrie's Jump and the Salve-Maker's Feel No Pain to form parts of their kit, have them all be alts to on another. Make their neutral B the Brave/Default mechanic itself, where they can store Brave Counters with a special Default parry, then unleash them all in the Brave state where their next few attacks either have enormous FAF buffs or their endlag cut in half or more. You know you want this. C'mon Square, you know Disney won't fork over Sora.

  20. Nintendo and Square are in good graces again, and they already got the Final Fantasy loser out of the way....Geno's gonna be in Smash 5, isn't he.

      His Final Smash needs to be Mickey showing up with a giant DMCA letter in the background, C&D-ing everyone into the blastzones.

      Why on earth would Sora make it in when neither Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 nor 3 have/ will ever been on a Nintendo platform? :/

    5. KHCast

      You’re really gonna ask that when cloud is in...?:/

      Also is only matter of time till both Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts become a mainstay on Nintendo.

      Now, if not Sora, I’d love Neku considering his game got a switch release 

    10. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      You know, come to think of it, Snake got in at the height of his Sony run so yeah, stupid question.

      Since Microsoft is being so friendly to other platforms lately, I’ll throw my vote out there for Banjo and Kazooie.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Jiren apparently beating Goku anyway is a blessing in the end, because it means UI is not the end-all auto-win ability that makes future antagonists a complete non-threat.

    Bandai Namco's not working on this. They're not listed on the credits on the main site. http://www.smashbros.com/en_US/index.html It's a brand new game.
  23. Hi, I'm late.
