  1. "You got any tasty bamboo? C'mon, I won't tell anyone you let me have some."
  2. Thanks, I don't plan on actually going for +10 but I appreciate the thought. Though Idunn would probably be armor dragon whalebait so it wouldn't be a bad investment. We're probably getting Christmas next because IS didn't have a banner associated with Book 3's addition. Then we'll get New Years before the Radiant Dawn/Laguz banner in January, Valentine's in February, and Binding Blade in March, and whatever banners are in-between those. Then we have Spring, brides, three two swimsuit banners...
  3. I have 1019 orbs, does that make me the president of Hoarders' Anonymous? I'm not saving for anyone particular, but I'll spend them on Idunn if she's on March's Binding Blade banner. Maybe I'll go for Legendary Marth too in the meantime.
  4. So this is pretty cool I guess. Legendary Heroes are so last season, but I'll just save my orbs for when Book 4 introduces One Step Closer to the Divine Heroes. I'm digging Líf and Thrasir, so hopefully they don't take too long to become summonable. "Something tells me we probably won't become friends... ever!" Yeah, right. And where is the trailer for tomorrow's banner? Since they bothered announcing Tibarn and Nailah early I'm guessing it's an Awakening banner guest starring Camilla.
  5. That's good to hear. So if the characters will be unexpected, does that mean that a Three Houses rep and a Gen 8 Pokémon are deconfirmed?
  6. This is just PR speak so I'm not inclined to take it too seriously, but even if Rex doesn't get in I can still appreciate that he was treated better than the majority of nonplayable characters. I feel sorry for Bandana Waddle Dee fans. But you know how Nintendo is publishing an exclusive Marvel game? And all of the Smash newcomers will be unexpected? And they need someone to top Joker? Who is the best character to include with these things in mind? That's right, Thanos confirmed.
  7. Thinking about it, the worst thing about this announcement is that next year's Game Awards will probably have another character announcement. And I don't really want to watch the whole thing... By the way, are there spirits of Arvis and/or Innes? Because I want to fight Xander Mobus as Xander Mobus while equipped with Xander Mobus and Xander Mobus.
  8. Whoa, looking cool Joker! I'm down. Joker is the kind of character I always sort of wanted (partially it was because I thought Shin Megami Tensei deserved a character) but didn't expect. He's basically Cloud: Second Coming on account of not being Nintendo related but being from a Nintendo related series, except Joker is much more recent. The trailer doesn't have any actual gameplay so I imagine he hasn't had much work done on him yet. I think people will somehow twist this reveal to support their preexisting beliefs on what the rest of the DLC will be, like "of course most of the characters will be third party" or "Joker is just the exception, everyone else will advertise upcoming games."
  9. From what I looked up it seems all the unlock conditions are just "complete vs. matches" and "complete Classic Mode with so-and-so character", so I guess I won't worry about "ruining" the unlocking experience through World of Light since there isn't much of a special experience to ruin.
  10. Well it seems that basically everyone has the game now so I'll ask a question: does unlocking a character in World of Light unlock them for use in other modes, or do you have to unlock them separately? I want to unlock everyone the "traditional" way but I don't want to hold off on playing World of Light until then.
  11. The last music update before launch is a (very dramatic) remix of the How to Play theme.
  12. Piranha Plant didn't receive an invitation to battle like everyone else did. It actually started as a potted plant kept around for decoration that somehow learned how to walk, and one day it wandered on to the battlefield and did surprisingly well for itself. Master Hand decided it was worth keeping around and pretended that it learning to fight was his idea all along. Otacon and Tora quickly became the best of friends, since Tora is one of the few people Otacon can share the wonders of anime with. Poppi has since adopted Metal Gear REX as her big brotherpon. Snake finds their friendship weird. R.O.B. is Master Hand's assistant who handles things Master Hand is too important for. He has mixed feelings about working with the guy who destroyed the rest of his species.
  13. I know that, since I mentioned that owning LGP and LGE isn't the only way of getting these spirits. Is this in response to me saying that they'll be added post release? Because the translation of the Japanese tweet does suggest they'll be added on December 14th, though the tweet I posted above doesn't mention it.
  14. Buying the games isn't the only way to unlock these spirits, since you can also get them through means, but I'm not in any position to tell you what games to get. Though it's a shame that Pikachu was deconfirmed as a playable character after this spirit was announced, I was really hoping he would come back.
  15. Starting on December 14th, having save data for Pokémon Let's Go! Pikachu and Let's Go! Eevee will automatically give you a Partner Pikachu or a Partner Eevee spirit, respectively. They can also be obtained through the Spirit Board. (this tweet doesn't mention the date, but the Japanese tweet does) More importantly, this shows that Spirits can be added for free post-release. At least, I think they aren't in the base game... And since there are still six days to go so I can post the Zekenator counting down for the loyal Xenoblade fans.
  16. Technically this is a bit early, but it's Xenoblade Chronicles 2's one year anniversary! Time really flies, doesn't it? Here's something Saito drew to commemorate: The reason I'm mentioning this early is because both Xenoblade 2 and Torna were updated to include Mythra's Smash Ultimate design (which was officially revealed at the same time as this update) as a costume! I thought it was a joke at first, but those madmen at Monolith Soft actually did it. You can find the Aux Core for it from Brobro the Nopon at Argentum's Salvaging Deck in the main game and Feltley Village in Torna.
  17. Well Blades evolve based on data collected from their Drivers and the environment, so technically it means that everyone is a pervert. Which isn't unrealistic. Anyway I decided to summarize the new information the Siren model kit gave us, along with related information we can infer from the game itself. Again don't read this until reaching Chapter 10.
  18. So the Siren model kit has been released and it comes with a page that contains a surprising amount of background lore. It even uses some terminology from Xenogears! For the sake of spoilers I don't recommend reading it until you reach Chapter 10. Here it is if you want to read it.
  19. Sakurai's latest Famitsu column revealed why Kirby was the only survivor of World of Light! He says it wasn't Sakurai Bias though it probably was but Kirby was picked because he's easy to use and he has a visible method of escape Galeem. Palutena and Bayonetta weren't OP enough to escape, and their movesets aren't as simple as Kirby's. The Smash Blog also announced that Lifelight is sung by Abby Trott in English and Erina Koga (who actually turned 18 today) in Japanese. There have also been countdown messages spread throughout various Twitter accounts! Yesterday it was from Super Mario Odyssey's Twitter: And today it was from Konami and Monster Hunter:
  20. The change itself could be worse, I suppose, but more confusing is the fact that it was apparently necessary in the first place. Other girls with exposed legs like Azura and Cammy are fine, but Mythra's legs are too much for today's youth? Sakurai previously discussed similar changes to the Japanese version of Smash 4 and called CERO "ridiculous and frankly quite juvenile" for requiring such changes. Though I'm not sure why someone would be concerned about looking up the skirt of a 2D image...
  21. Rex and Pyra Pit: Lady Palutena, who are these two? Palutena: That's Rex, Driver of the Aegis, and Pyra, the legendary Aegis herself. Pit: Another duo, huh? But it doesn't look like Pyra is doing any fighting. Palutena: That's because Pyra is a Blade, Pit. She won't fight you personally, but she provides Rex with his weapon and greatly empowers him in battle. Pit: Huh. That kind of sounds like how you support me, Lady Palutena! Palutena: Well, not exactly. I'm not there with you personally, but Rex and Pyra need to stick together to fight at their full potential. You'll need to find a way to separate them, or you're done. Pit: So I just need to divide and conquer, right? I think I can take them! Palutena: Don't get cocky, Pit. I also hear that Pyra has a stronger, more abrasive alter ego who has enough power to destroy an entire Titan. Don't forget that. Pit: Got it! So... um, you wouldn't happen to also have a stronger, more abrasive alter ego, would you, Lady Palutena? Palutena: Try to win this battle first, or else you just might find out!
  22. I'm interested in hearing how you define how "good" (well-written?) each protagonist is. And the plots and villains too I suppose; since every Xeno game was made by the same developer I'd like to see your opinion on Monolith Soft's writing as it changed over time.
  23. You know, this quote reminded me that the Pac-Man World games have no representation whatsoever, aside from Pac-Man's design and up air, which I'm more bothered by than I should be. Even a bunch of random retro Namco games got more than Pac-Man World. Pac-Man's moveset is fine as is but I'd still like to see Pac-Man World acknowledged in some way. In fact Pac-Man is represented almost entirely by the original game and Pac-Land. The original game being prioritized is obvious, but why is Pac-Land referenced so much? It even came back in Ultimate over Pac-Maze... But that aside, this week's music theme is Bowser's battle theme from Super Mario Bros. 3.
