  1. I know it's a bit unfair to compare in-game animation to pre-rendered but... damn man. Between Tyson's continued work, Marza (back before they were limited to short promotional shots), the various other pieces of media, and now even the movie... I'm sort of done giving ST any leeway with cutscene animation. Especially with the real-time tech we have now.

      It's not exactly an unfair thing now...most games have such good animation in-engine that they barely even need to do pre-rendered stuff for spectacle.

  2. What nerfs would you give certain characters in Ultimate? Mine are:

    -Ness and Lucas but they only have 5 PK Fires per stock.

    -Hero but they only have 85 MP instead of 100.

    -Dedede but he only has 5 Gordos per stock

    -Dark Pit but his Guardian Orbitars break more easily

    -PAC-MAN but his Power Pellet trail is shorter

    -Ryu and Ken but they need an EX gauge to use command input versions if their specials.

    -Ganondorf but he enters a helpless state even when he grabs someone with Dark Dive (same for Captain Falcon)

    -Mewtwo but it’s Confusion attack can’t reflect projectiles anymore 

    -Piranha Plant but its Ptooie has longer startup

    -Inkling but Killer Wail uses up all their ink

      Make characters that aren't that good or average worse...outside of Inkling and Pacman.

  3. Mario Strikers is remembered by 4 whole people but man did it have some awesome artwork, particularly gritty for Mario standards;

  4. When people have different speaking and singing voices.

    This isn't a joke. It's lovely.

  5. One of the best things Kakarot has done so far with is Chi-Chi

    Spoiler

    I really like how they made her less of an over the top joke. When you have the set up for going to Namek, there’s a whole side mission dedicated to Chi-Chi where she’s depressed about Gohan going to space, and Ox King notices, and asks Gohan to investigate.

    Gohan asks Chi-Chi what’s wrong, and she just mentions missing some ingredients, Gohan relays this to Ox King, who realised immediately, and helps Gohan gather the stuff.

    When they get it, Ox King tells Gohan to take the ingredients in by himself, saying that’s all Chi-Chi needs - the ingredients and Gohan.

    It turns out Chi-Chi was proud of Gohan, and wanted to do something very special for him by making him his favourite meal (curry), and spending time with Gohan for what could be the last time they can in months.

    Chi-Chi then has this really good conversation with Gohan that’s really natural where she tries to subtly talk him out of leaving, first by saying he won’t have her cooking, then saying she’d be scared of going to space, then by outright telling Gohan he doesn’t have to if he doesn’t want to.

    Gohan tells her that he’ll miss her cooking, and that he isn’t scared because not only does he have Bulma and Krillin to back him up, but he has people counting on him to help.

    Chi-Chi doesn’t overreact to this, she doesn’t try to force Gohan into anything, she says that Gohan might be smaller than herself or Goku, but his heart is bigger than anyone, and she supports Gohan’s decision to go to Namek. It’s a really nice addition IMO.

     

  6. I really wish that the Splatoon games had an character to play as in single player instead of Agent 3/4/8. I'm so incredibly bored of silent protagonist and user-insert characters. Splatoon is all about avatars online, so an actual character would be especially welcome.

    I'm also of the camp that wouldn't hate it if Link had dialogue. 

    1. StaticMania

      Well, with Nintendo it's the reception on things they've never done before or rarely do.

      While with Sega it'd be the things they have done before but gotten progressively worse at.

      Despite a person's insistence on doing it, I'm pretty sure it's "humor" intended when people bring up CDI Zelda writing and acting.

      An accurate argument is Nintendo gets negative reception and they back-off from doing it ever again...for an indefinite amount of time.

  8. Here’s a question about the “Freedom Fighters in IDW” discussion I haven’t seen asked before:

    It’s been more or less established that most fans don’t want the Freedom Fighters to have strong ties to Sonic in a potential reintroduction. But would you want each of the members to still be priorly associated with each other?

  9. After that reveal, The FE fanbase can't use the "B-BUT MARIO AND POKÉMON !!!!11!!" excuse anymore.

    FE is Mario and Pokémon now, dog.

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      It is? Mario still has 3 more characters...Pokemon still has 2 more...

      Well, he didn't say if the list of characters was still in the range of characters Nintendo already picked...

  11. I love how Sakurai even knew people who hate this, he had to preface the direct by saying "even if you don't like the character being announced, blahblahblah" 

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      He needed to say that...but that's just a 2nd line of defense next to the 2nd fighters pass.

  12. When was it that Yuji Naka also confirmed this 2 worlds thing-a-ma-jig?

    Curious.

      Was...unnecessary development detail and if they were gonna mention it at all, should've also mentioned that little tidbit?

  13. Now I wonder about if Sonic Riders had replaced the CGI cutscenes with animated ones instead. It would certainly fit the aesthetics more, especially with the ingame cutscenes already having an anime feel to them.

      Those CG models didn't look very positive at all.

      Even at the time.

      I'm in confusion because I thought I seen it at least somewhere...and why.

      Maybe it was just incorrect.

      If Sonic had a proper double jump, I wonder if this would still be the feeling...

  17. "Knuckles in Sonic 2" is pretty much easy mode. They added extra lives at the top of tall structures (like in Chemical Plant) to reward climbing with Knuckles. Obviously Knuckles' glide allows you to breeze though zones.  Also, the special stages are even easier because the number of rings you have to collect is less when playing with Knuckles. 

    The only harder thing is having a slight disadvantage against some of the boss fights due to his lower jump height, especially against the Death Egg robot...

  18. I think I've listened to this song almost everyday for two weeks now

     

    I may have a problem

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      Nah, you're have no problem.

      There's more extreme ways to listen to music.

  19. There's a mod for SADX that replaces animal capsules with goal rings from SA2 and I can't go back to the old way anymore.

      Does the Signpost being 3D popout in Generations count as...a variation?

    and this is like the third time i've learned something new about Mario Galaxy many years after beating it

      Yes, the evolution of the Slide kick from Super Mario 64.

  21. Really hope that the next Crash game doesn't have a lame non ending if you don't have  100% when you beat the final boss. Always though it was dumb that Cortex or Uka would say at the end. "Oh you've beaten me but not really since you didn't get all the gems!" Atleast give me somewhat of a satisfying ending regardless of completion percentage.

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      So...in Crash 3 Uka Uka says "they still have a chance to win because of the Gems"

      And that one instance is them being defeated "but not really"?

      In Crash 2 Cortex doesn't say anything, Coco just worries about his spaceship still being in Space.

      Neither of these really seem like non-endings and there's only 2 of em, they're actually pretty neat and different from the other endings.

  22. Did the main discussion page used to be called "Green Hill Zone"?

    With no "S"?

      Someone will take the shot for me asking the real questions.

      But it won't be me.

  23. if SA1 was remade a decade ago sonic would've said "aw yeah, this is epic!" and if it happens now he'd probably say "aw yeah, this slaps!" ...yeah the dialog writers should steer clear of leaning too hard into whatever the current slang is because it won't age well at all

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      This is happening is apparently a "cringe" phrase now?

  24. I love how Hidden Island 16 in Rush Adventure is literally just Leaf Storm Act 1 in the original Rush. It’s always nice to see subtle nods to previous games like that. I recall Game Land in Colors did something similar with Sonic 1 stages.
