Super Smash Bros. / Re: Echo Fighter-specific wants and don't wants

Whatever the Echo fighter is, I want an Echo Fighter that isn't from the same series as the parent character. Surprise me.
I was thinking if Doomguy got in then Ranger from Quake could work as an echo fighter, but I think it'd only work with the very specific moveset I have in mind for them.

There were differences in skill so my thoughts were aimed at getting people to develop more. Thinking further you probably wouldn't even need a Swiss head-to-head thing. You could alternatively not have eliminations and distribute points for placings.

But yeah I also liked how I could play the game in my own time because organising matches with people / dealing with internet / timezones / etc is a rough time for us Aussies.

I don't have much requests for Echo Fighters since the characters I want in generally fit well as originals. As an example, Slippy Toad is a character I would like to see, but he doesn't fit the mould of the playable Star Fox characters.

Whatever the Echo fighter is, I want an Echo Fighter that isn't from the same series as the parent character. Surprise me.

I like the idea of Eggman being a Bowser Jr. Echo, since they operate in vehicles.

It would be hilarious if the "reckless silhouette guy" (a joke submission for the Smash Ballot) becomes an Echo Fighter for Wii Fit Trainer.

Thank you for reading.

Unpopular opinion: I dislike that whenever a character is not slated to be playable, there are depictions of mockery of that character. An example of a Smash 4 fanart would be one where Rosalina held a cup called "Daisy fans's tears" (I think it's called that) and drinking it smugly, while Daisy is crying. Yes certainly, the character is not playable, but there's no need to rub it in the faces of those who are disappointed. Maybe the environment in Smash encouraged it, I guess, but I didn't like it, even though the character might be somebody I'm not a fan of.

Anyway, back when Snake was playable in Brawl, this was a very notable piece of art:

Also, surprised to see a lack of Brawl in the Family fanart, since that was very notable among Smash fans.

Thank you for reading.
I will have to agree that the choice of newcomers are looking to be rather mild, and to me the most exciting addition is everyone's favourite character to lampoon: Daisy (I apologise for the assumption: it's just that there is a very huge support for this opinion so it's kind of empirical).

Currently there are only two new franchises represented: Splatoon and Castlevania, and although I love Splatoon their inclusion is rather safe and predictable even though I love how the Inklings utilise the various weapons in the original games for their move set. Castlevania I didn't watch their trailers but I am not that interested in the games even though they aren't that predictable. The others I understand is for the other fans that love those characters to be playable, but I guess they're just not my type and in a few ways, predictable. Basically what I would love to see playable should either be 1) from franchises that haven't been represented in Smash or 2) a relatively unpopular character even in an established universe.

Thank you for reading.

Mario Awards XII / Re: Mario Kart 64 Time Trials Tournament! (Results!)

I'm sure that Smash didn't do so well last year was because it was a dying game on a dying system, not because it was Swiss.  I can see a Smash 5 tournament in 2019 doing relatively alright.  Fanta's point that the positions didn't really change much would mean that a Swiss tournament would really only amplify that, but at least people end up playing more.  I'd say it's worth a shot, and makes it easy enough to set up, albeit finicky with the amount of participants.  Actually, that being said, without me erasing what I just typed out so the context remains: how would Swiss work out if no one's exactly competing against each other?

Either way I enjoyed the concept of this tournament, especially not being held down to a time that I have to commit to in advance without risk of messing up everyone's schedules.

Yoshi, that's sloppy eating even for you. Clean that up.

I think we can all agree that they ought to turn Daisy's volume back down to GCN-era levels.
