If having a good theme song made characters worth a crap I'd like a lot more wrestlers than I do.

There's literally nothing good about her theme song and I can't understand how anyone can like it.

Well, I'm not gonna argue music since that is the most subjective thing out there.

I mean I don't really care about Ashley herself.

I just like the song, is all.

Break Free Lead the Way is not great. Decent, but not great.

Ashley's song is fine, just the Brawl version just isn't... good

Oh, is that the Brawl remix I've been hearing then?  Maybe the original isn't that bad, then.  But coming from the Smash game with the best soundtrack in the whole series, I'm a bit disappointed.

Yeah, that version with the singing and shrieking clearly post-pubescent woman is the Brawl incarnation. The Japanese variation is a little better because at least the singer sounds like she's a girl and not some woman in her mid-20s.

I demand an explanation for why people love Ashley so much.

Can you see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

Break Free Lead the Way is not great. Decent, but not great.

The instrumentation is decent and bubbly, but the singer sounds like she's really really bored singing it. The energy level is almost like she's sleeping while singing.

So

instrumentation: B
vocals: D

even the japanese version the singer sounds bored singing it

I like Ashley's song myself, but I'm indifferent towards her as a character

I do not like Crafted World's artstyle that much. A world made entirely out of wool was a lot more creative. Paper Mario already does all this crafted thing too.

Yoshi also doesn't look good in it. Just regular Yosh but with an ugly looking texture slapped on him.

I agree. If they want to go through the plush style, actually *bleep*ing model a plush toy, don't just slap a plush filter and keep the eyes and mouth and body form intact when they're practically impossible to 100% replicate in real life. The Switch isn't even powerful enough to render something that looks decently plush-y, so why bother??

A plush? I didn't even know it was supposed be a plush lol. The texture is that bad. Skin aside it's just regular Yoshi.


If the 3DS can make Yoshi look like wool then I'm sure a Switch can make him look like a plush in some way.

It looks more of laziness than adapting Yoshi to a particular style. Anyone can multiply that effect onto any texture they like. Even first-time newbs of Substance Painter can do that.

And having it be regular is the problem. Have you ever seen a Yoshi plush?

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

You notice that they don't quite exactly resemble Yoshi? It's just the nature of plushies, limitations of fabric color, limitations of material, and you can't achieve exact dimensions and proportions because they have to be stuffed AND they have to hold up from sitting. What they should've done is used these plushies as references, tried modeling these plushies, and you'd have a far more convincing plush.

In Yoshi's Woolly World, they actually did this, and the results are actually decent.... in game art.



Soo... what happened? Did they get cocky to thinking that, "Well, we can just change Yoshi to plush fabric and it'll look convincing" or were they just lazy or were they afraid they'll stray too far from Yoshi's original design (as if it's soooo fantastic to begin with; it's not)? Or maybe they thought about promoting their stupid game so they made it so you can easily make a horrendous alt of it in Smash and therefore advertise the game?

If they just used these boys as the in-game models, I'd totally be behind it.
May Walkazo always be remembered on MarioWiki for years to come.

It's weird that you dislike Ashley for being generic waif crap or something when Yoshi is generic cute dinosaur that's not that cute and has a voice that can be ear piercing at times, but I'm not complaining.

There's a lot of things I can say about Yoshi, but "generic" isn't one of them. Sadly.

I think he's referring to Yoshi from Yoshi's Crappy World which is weird because it's undisputed fact that Yoshi looks crafty I mean crappy.

I mean at large I find yoshi to be acceptable. I'm not a diehard fan of him or anything.

But I was mostly referring to his look in crafted world. I think it's fine.

However I'm not a plush connoisseur so what do I know?
