The Marioverse / Re: Super Mario Party
« on: January 12, 2019, 12:56:19 PM »
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?

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.

The Marioverse / Re: The most annoying voices

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.

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.
