Mach Speed Mayhem (Superchao 'Shroom Section)
« on: September 22, 2018, 07:38:29 PM »
Hello, 'Shroom readers! Or people who aren't 'Shroom readers if you clicked on this thread out of curiosity! Welcome to my thread for my new section, Mach Speed Mayhem, where I intend to discuss each F-Zero character until I run out of them!

Q: Do you need a thread for this when you don't for interviews?
A: Yes I do. The reason is because this section features fan participation! There's 47 F-Zero characters for me to discuss assuming we never get a new F-Zero, and I'd have trouble picking them in an interesting order - I might as well roll dice. So, instead, you guys are going to decide the order I write them in!

Q: How, exactly?
A: That's what this thread is for. Every time I post a new section, you can post in this thread and tell me who you want me to discuss for the next section. Nominations will be open until two weeks before the release of the next issue (gives me a week to write it, which is more than enough), a date I'll make sure to include in the thread. Once they've closed, I'll pick whoever got the most support for discussion! If there's a tie, I'll do a super quick tiebreaker vote with tied characters; if nobody nominates then I'll just RNG from everyone left and feel sad.

Q: Sounds neat! Do I get to pick right away?
A: No, not yet. In order to really get a feel for this section and show you guys how I'm doing it, the October 2018 and November 2018 sections will be pre-decided characters, with December 2018 being the first character picked by readers. Additionally, if I have a fitting character for a special issue who hasn't been done yet, I'll go ahead and lock them in myself - although of course I'd tell you guys ahead of time about that.

Q: So how am I supposed to keep track of everyone who's been done so far?
A: Great question, hypothetical reader! Part of the purpose of this post is to track who I have and haven't done, to make it easier for anyone who wishes to participate. I'm including a chart I'll update with each section to cross out who I've done as I go - eventually it'll all be covered in Xs, and then the section will be over... but not for four years, so I'm good for a while. I'm also including a list of names and vehicle numbers you can crossreference so you don't have to try to remember or guess at the names. Just open the list (which is divided by rows and goes in left to right top to bottom order) and you can go "ah yes the first person in the chart is Captain Falcon"! The thread also includes a list of past sections, so that you can check back and read what I've written in the past!


Spoiler: Names and numbers (click to show/hide)

Past Sections:
-2018-

Issue 138 (#07: Captain Falcon)
Issue 139 (#30: Black Shadow)
Issue 140 (#05: Samurai Goroh)
Issue 141 (#25: Blood Falcon)
-2019-
Issue 142 (#10: James McCloud)
Issue 143 (#09: Mr. EAD)
Issue 144 (#15: Bio Rex)

Thanks for reading - this is a section I'm really looking forward to seeing take off. I hope you guys can help me make this as good as I hope it will be!

The new issue is out, and with it the new section!

I presumed most everyone would want to do Black Shadow quickly anyway, so I got him out of the way. November is also booked, so just one more month and we'll start voting on sections!

Issue 140 is out, featuring everyone's favorite bounty hunter samurai! Unless you're Falcon.

More importantly, this means Mach Speed Mayhem candidate voting is open! If you want to vote, just put down in this thread which of the 44 remaining choices you want to see featured in Issue 141 next month. Don't need a reason, don't need a writeup, it's as simple as putting down Captain Falcon and that's it!

Voting will close on December 8th, and that's when I'll start doing my writeup!

Dai San Gen, those three look mysterious and interesting.

... though I must admit that Smasher's suggestion of obvious choice for an echo fighter Blood Falcon feels oddly appropriate for the Smash issue...

Since there's one week to go before I lock the poll, thought I'd sum up every vote so far.

#25: Blood Falcon - 3 votes
#17: Antonio Guster - 1 vote
#02: Jody Summer - 1 vote
#33: Dai San Gen - 1 vote
#10: James McCloud - 1 vote
#16: The Skull - 1 vote
#19: Leon - 1 vote
#09: Mr. EAD - 1 vote

Don't forget you can change your vote if you want to, and in one week it'll finalize who I write about for December!

I think I'm with the others in saying Blood Falcon. I really like his design.

As it's the Smash Issue, I'd like to see James Mcloud as he's a reference to Star Fox, another series in Smash.
