  1. I always forget how bad Street Fighter 1 is until I play it again.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Since I've been curious about this and could never hear it in any of the previous Smash videos from E3, I finally found a video where you can hear Sonic's victory theme. I don't think this had been confirmed yet; forgive me if it already has.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    "Smash is Special" Part 2 has been released and translated. https://sourcegaming.info/2018/06/28/smash-is-special-part-2-sakurais-famitsu-column-vol-558/ Not a whole lot of new information here, but definitely still worth reading. Sakurai really emphasizes how difficult it was to get every fighter back, almost as if he's saying "Will you guys ever be satisfied? I mean, come on!"

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    I’m definitely ok with not every single stage coming back. I wasn’t expecting that for a moment, and am incredibly grateful for all of the stages that we are getting back already. Of course, there are already people complaining about this on other sites on the internet, because, you know, that’s how it goes with Super Smash Bros. There are already over 80 stages confirmed, with more coming, so if you take a step back and really look at everything that’s already there, it’s insane. I mean, sure, I’d love more stages, and bringing back every stage would definitely be welcome, but, people really need to control their expectations sometimes. Not here on this forum, but Smash fans in general; everyone’s been pretty chill here for the most part, which is why I keep coming back to this topic for Smash updates and discussion. As for Sonic representation, I’ve accepted that Green Hill Zone may be the only stage for the series, and, I’m actually ok with that, if that does end up being the case. Sure, I, along with most other Sonic fans, have maybe seen a bit too much of Green Hill in recent years, but, it’s without a doubt the most iconic location in the series, and if guest series are, in fact, getting one stage each, then I completely understand why they would choose Green Hill Zone as the stage to represent Sonic. Plus, I personally like it a lot more than the Windy Hill stage, at least aesthetically. I’d absolutely love to see another stage that well-represents the series like Casino Night, Studiopolis, or even something like the Egg Carrier, but, I’m keeping my expectations in check here.

    Thanks for sharing this, Solly! The full translation (of part 1, at least) seems to be available here. I found this part especially interesting. I wonder if this means that there will be some sort of in-game currency that you can use to unlock fighters. Or, that could have just been an example he decided to use for why he wanted most characters to be locked at first and doesn't imply anything. Who knows. With that being said, I do kind of like the idea of earning in-game currency to unlock fighters, and maybe other stuff like extra music as well.

    I can completely understand wanting Waluigi in as a fighter and everything, but, really, I don’t see how anyone could say that the Mario series doesn’t already have enough representation in Smash. This is clearly a case of looking at what isn’t there instead of what is. Which, I know Smash fans are already kind of known for doing, but, jeez...

    Woah, cool. Wasn't expecting that. If Tomoya Ohtani is on board, then hopefully that's a good sign for getting some new Sonic remixes!

    Bashed By Some, Praised By You

    While in most cases I dislike the Sonic games that are generally considered bad, my clear choice for this topic would be Sonic Heroes. While it may not be as absolutely loathed as other games in the series, its reception is mixed at best. I absolutely loved this game when it came out. I loved seeing Sonic and the others return to the surreal, classic-inspired environments after the realistic settings from the Adventure games, I enjoyed the team gameplay, the soundtrack is amazing, and I generally just had a really good time with the game. Even playing this more recently within the last few years, I can clearly see all of the many flaws that Sonic Heroes has, but, somehow I have no problem looking past them and enjoying the game to this day. Seaside Hill, Power Plant, and Egg Fleet are always my favorite levels to run through. The dialogue, however, is beyond terrible; probably the worst out of any game in the entire series. It made me cringe back in the day, and it just makes me cringe even harder now. You can all say all you want about Colors and Lost World with their lame "Baldy McNosehair" jokes, but I would gladly take that over Sonic Heroes' writing any day.

    My first party choice would definitely be Dixie Kong (I've even updated my signature to reflect this). DKC 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, so, I'd personally love the duo from that to be together in Smash. She could do quite a bit with her hair, I'd imagine. As for third party, that's a tough one. My personal pick would probably be NiGHTS, but, a more popular choice would be Banjo-Kazooie, so I'd probably go with that. Microsoft even seems to be on board with letting that happen. Also, the more I think about it, the more I think Shadow may actually have a chance of being Sonic's Echo Fighter after all. The way the Echo Fighters were given mention in the Direct makes it seem like we'll be getting a few more of them, as a way to please fan who want more characters without having to put in too much extra work to do so. Shadow would definitely make sense for Sonic's, especially with Knuckles now being an Assist Trophy. Another Echo Fighter I could definitely see happening would be Ken being an Echo Fighter of Ryu (which I would personally love if that does happen). Ugh, the wait for more info on this game is going to be brutal.

    Some Green Hill Zone footage. You can barely hear it, but I'm pretty sure the music playing is the Angel Island Zone remix, which I'm very glad is in the game again. Also, Knuckles still runs through the loop in the background, despite being an Assist Trophy now. That red dude can just be everywhere at once apparently.

    So, I don't know if this has been pointed out yet (I haven't seen in mentioned), but, it looks like the official Smash Bros. site is going to get daily updates. https://www.smashbros.com/en_US/blog/index.html Nothing new yet, just a closer look at the Launch Star item and pics from the E3 booth. But, it's good to know we'll be getting consistent tidbits and updates! Also, I 100% agree with this. In all honesty though, Sakurai said himself not too expect too many new fighters, so I wouldn't get my hopes up too much on one of them being a second character from a third-party guest series. I mean, I know that Shadow is one of the most popular Sonic characters, but still. If I'm proven wrong though, then I suppose that would be neat. I'm completely neutral on the idea of Shadow being an Echo Fighter for Sonic; I'm cool with him being one, and I'm cool with him not being one.
