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: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.

Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...

Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
