The Marioverse / Re: The Future of King K. Rool
« on: February 20, 2019, 11:02:05 PM »
I think it seems likely that King K. Rool might appear in more games now, though I'm not sure in wat capacity yet. I don't tink it's likely that he'd be added to Mario Party, but I could definitely see him being added to the rosters of future sports games or Mario Kart- perhaps he'll be a downloadable character for Mario Tennis Aces? I think he also has potential to return in the Donkey Kong series too, though if it's in a main platformer, it'd be nice if they could bring back the other Kremlings and some of the other Kongs and Animal Friends too - more of the stuff from Donkey Kong that hasn't been used for a while. Perhaps he might appear if they made a new spinoff title in the vein of Jungle Climber and Barrel Blast if he's not going to reappear in the main series yet?

Hell, K. Rool was such a megaton reveal for Smash that I think the hype would transfer over to whatever Mario spinoff he's announced for first, even though they usually don't attract much attention apart from Kart.

Also what could K Rool's next alias be?
General K. Rool, and in each world you have to fight a different branch of the Kremling Military.
Wouldn't it be Kommander K. Rool? And would he be wearing a modern military uniform or a 1800's/Napoleon sort of deal (which would end up looking similar to Kaptain)?

While not technically an alias, I'm a big fan of the Darth Vader deal he had going on in DK64, where he acted and sounded super serious and intimidating and was somehow unfitting-yet-fitting for his kartoony, komikal design. K. Rool's definitive voice in my headcanon is the Vader-pastiche voice he had there.

I should also mention King K. Rool. As a Fire Emblem fan, I've had to deal with his absolutely horrid fanbase blaming FE (particularly Lucina and Corrin) for why he didn't get into Smash 4, and I even groaned at first when they revealed him for Smash Ultimate. But one spectacular Smash release and masterfully designed amiibo later, and he's one of my favorite characters in the expanded Mario universe.

Wario. When I was a young teen, I loved him for being quirky, hilarious, badass and a twisted spin on Mario. Now I just find him to be a marginally appealing character for being a walking fart joke, and not a "cool" character otherwise.

Remember the days where Bowser had a godzillish roar as a voice?

Yeah I didn't like those days.


Smash still thinks it's those days though

A horse rider would be a Fire Emblem character I'd use, I wouldn't be lying to myself. It'll be the closest thing I get to a playable horse in Smash.
:yoshi:

Frederick would be hilarious

I was actually hoping for Lyn to be playable, what with the publicity she got in Warriors and Heroes. But she's yet another swordfighter. Truth be told, swords are the main weapon of Fire Emblem and all of the most popular characters are swordfighters, maybe except for Tiki, and so the "too many swordfighters" controversy is also a victim of circumstance. Hopefully Three Houses will buck the trend and give us a lord/most popular characters that uses something other than swords.

There was a report somewhere that the developers of Tropical Freeze wanted to include K. Rool somewhere. Perhaps as a secret boss or something. But supposedly Sakurai caught wind of this and wanted to be the one to bring back K. Rool back in full glory with his playability in Smash Ultimate.

I do rather think that's a bit of a greedy power grab by Sakurai if that's true. But nonetheless did achieve in making K. Rool's return extra special. It should mean either way that whenever the next Donkey Kong Country game is made K. Rool will probably play a major role.

Interesting. I don't think it would be a greedy power grab, since Sakurai doesn't have power over Retro or vice versa, but it's possible that they agreed that Smash would be a bigger return for K. Rool than DKCTF. Still, the whole "K. Rool in Smash" saga is really fascinating in hindsight, what with Sakurai trolling fans with the Mii costume and Bayo as the ballot winner when in reality he was secretly planning K. Rool for the next entry on a much more popular system. I love you Sakurai, you magnificent *bleep*

With the rave reception our beloved Kremling King got in SSBU, it's pretty clear that fans can't get enough of K. Rool. In the Metroid franchise, they started pushing Ridley because of his popularity (he was added to Samus Returns despite being absent from Metroid II), so do you think they'd do the same thing with K. Rool? I'd love to see the Kremlings return as the main antagonists of DKCR3, but would honestly spazz if they made K. Rool a core member of the Mario spinoff cast like with Diddy and put him in Mario Kart 9 and/or the next Mario Party.

Is this game worth a purchase? I loved the Mario Party titles as a kid but recognize that their reception dwindled over the years, and apparently this title is a return to form.

EDIT: You can say the opposite happened with Wario for me. I used to think he was the coolest thing ever, but his Smash portrayal made me lose most of my unironic admiration for him beyond his being a walking fart joke that happens to be good for trolling/taunt parties.
He has always been a joke for me, lol. I'm quite known in this forum for my rather over the top sadism for this character.

And the weird thing is, I still like Waluigi a lot because his charm is based on outright weirdness (and thanks to the fandom, memes) rather than grossout humor.

I was so baffled when Monika, one of the best video game villains in recent years, was beat out by Wario in the GameFAQs Character Battle last year. Then again, it's the same contest that had exactly one (1) Overwatch character in the bracket who was beaten out by Fox, so *shrugs*

Super Smash Bros. / Re: How do you play Smash?
« on: January 12, 2019, 12:48:42 PM »
I play Ultimate, and it's usually 3 stocks, 7 minutes, Battlefield forms or other balanced stages. I like to play both casual and competitive (though I still have a lot to learn for the latter), and competitive play helps me get good at my favorite characters. I still have a long way to go for ZSS, who's apparently the most technical character in the game.

As Samus and ZSS, I usually use Bayonetta because I'm a hardcore SamusxBayo shipper (and vice-versa, I use ZSS as a dummy when practicing Bayo).
what
yes

Depends on the character. As Samus and ZSS, I usually use Bayonetta because I'm a hardcore SamusxBayo shipper (and vice-versa, I use ZSS as a dummy when practicing Bayo).

For most of my other mains, it's usually a stereotypical middleweight realistically-proportioned human like Chrom or Marth. For Peach, I used Bowser and Wario because theming.

Oh yeah, some songs are in the music list, but not available to be played anywhere else. The Smash 64 menu is one of those.

Why oh why they designed it like this, and also have Super Mario World music absent from a Super Mario World stage, along with having 500 different pieces of music to turn off per stage, is going to be a real baffling decision.

Tell me about it. The E3 2018 Main Theme is completely absent from the game, period. Shame because it's my favorite version of Lifelight, even more than the already-amazing menu and vocal versions.

Toad. Toad. TOAD. The whole Sticker Star fiasco only made it worse. Bowser Jr. as well, especially since the Koopalings he's constantly "competing" with have more likable teen-like voices. While I'm inclined to say Daisy, I never played DD and was never exposed to the horrors of "HI I'M DAISY".

I also hate Smash!Diddy's chimpanzee screeches, and going further into Smash (hey, the wiki has articles on them), I can't stand Sonic's and male Pokémon Trainer's voices (the female Trainer is fine though). On a related note, I'm glad that Toad is silent in Smash, since Peach is one of my mains.

The Marioverse / Re: Peach's wedding dress hairstyle in Mario Odyssey?
« on: January 10, 2019, 05:27:04 PM »
Thanks so much! Those help a lot! So it seems that it's similar to her ponytail but higher and more fanned out.

18
This was a relief. ZSS is one of my mains (second only to regular Samus) and I ended up getting her within 20 minutes because I knew the Classic Mode "path" to her, though not after clearing Classic with Samus herself for tradition.

The Marioverse / Peach's wedding dress hairstyle in Mario Odyssey?
« on: January 10, 2019, 01:08:21 PM »
Hi, I might be cosplaying Wedding Peach down the line so does anyone have pictures of her hairstyle in Odyssey? From the looks of it, it's an updo of some kind but isn't the ponytail that she wears with some of her outfits. Thanks so much!

Peach for me too. I disliked her for being an overly-girly "damsel in distress" type, but the ending of Odyssey really did wonders for her reputation in my eyes, since it showed her to be a stronger and more independent person than her tropes would suggest. Ever since then, I've been banking more and more on the nostalgia I had of having a crush on Peach when I was 10, and less on my former hatred of girly things. Her being top tier in Smash Ultimate also helped her in my eyes, and I now see her as an adorable, iconic and lovable character, except when she's depicted as incompetent or ditzy like in Sunshine.

EDIT: You can say the opposite happened with Wario for me. I used to think he was the coolest thing ever, but his Smash portrayal made me lose most of my unironic admiration for him beyond his being a walking fart joke that happens to be good for trolling/taunt parties.
