Time to hit Siliconera for any non "anime" video game news
There will be lots of news peppered. I guess I post the big ones instead of the small ones due to me being busy. For anyone here, please post news or any comments on what you see, wish to see, et cetera
The news for today - not every stage featured in the past games will be brought back for this Switch game
Today's Smash Ultimate Direct was worth not getting spoiled by going to Twitter and Discord! Got a bunch of new characters counting Echo Fighters and I already fell for the brand new entrants. Can't wait to play as them!
I finally got my computer to work. I hate typing on the phone. I was waiting so I can type here in this thread because I have a lot of thoughts to post which is better on a computer.
To summarize the video (before we go in):
The amount of stages is 103 in this game so far. The new fighters introduced are Simon and King K. Rool. New Echo Fighters are Dark Samus, Richter, and Chrom. Assist Trophies - hard to remember. We got Alucard, the Monster Hunter Dragon A lot of new items and Pokemon were introduced.
Smash Matches Updates Smash Gauge is implemented You can switch between stages during a match up. At most, two stages. You can adjust music and the frequency You can turn on stage hazards Tournament - I don't remember You can implement a mode or option of eliminating the last 4 used characters from the last match. Forcing players to grab the remaining fighters.
I'm really excited for the game. It will be crazy. From the updates, I assume players wanted more options and variety to change the pacing and add more variety to the matches.
watcher: You can switch between having them on and off when you set up a match's rules. Remember that the Smash Ball is an item that can be turned off ever since debuting in SSBBrawl. The Smash Gauge is most likely turned on and off from the rules section.
Thinking back. I'll miss the trophies. I can see it being a lot of work compared to stickers. It gave fans something to read. I recall when the English team did Metroid Prime notes thingy, it was popular with the Japanese fans? or was it the western fans?
I don't know what to say. I have seen folks either happy, mixed, or sad or mad. When you have a game from a long running franchise, people will have big expectations and their own list of stuff

Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.

Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
