@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  unluckiness : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)


@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

Oh why not



Well, here goes something.  



Here's my bracket for this round


attachicon.gifMarchMayhembracket crosshairs.pdf


I based my picks upon the fact that I felt that the powermaster and Targetmasters were at a bit of an advantage with having a two-3 man team vs the Headmasters kind of being a bit of a symbiotic relationship. I know not exactly but it's my bracket.  I view Brainstorm and Mindwipe being front runners with their abilities until they come up against a more formidable foe. The brawn side was a bit tougher to choose but in the end I felt Crosshairs' experience be it not quite as much as Primes but still fighting with Prime Kup and Ironhide in the tough days made him a worthy foe and after beating Prime, Prime did the honorable thing by lending Crosshairs his powers.


It's a fantasy world and I can dream.  Go Crosshairs 


All three of you guys have attached empty brackets, as far as I can tell. As Dracula says above, you may need to download the PDF, open it from your HD, edit it, and then save it for the form fields to stay filled. If you're having an issue, perhaps just grab a screenshot and attach that instead of the PDF?


Or try this:

To save a filled PDF form, users should choose the print option from the "File" menu, and in the resulting print dialogue box select "Save as PDF" from the "PDF" menu



You can always check the attachment after you post, to make sure it looks right.

Attached my bracket below.


Some thoughts:


- I think both of the Zarak bros have tough 1st round matchups despite their high seeds. Sideways and The Headmaster both seem to me like characters who are popular around here.

- Really interested to see how the votes go for characters who weren't originally -masters like Hot Rod, Arcee, Sunstreaker, Scourge, etc. For most of them, being -masters never seemed really important, not sure if people will hold that against them or not. Especially for someone like Arcee, where being a Headmaster made her worse. Hot Rod vs. Bendy Prime looks like a very interesting matchup...

- Does Landfill only have a chance if people think it's RID Landfill?

- Always hard to tell how much my own biases come into play. I've soured on IDW Chromedome but it won't surprise me if he gets tumblr-votestuffed to winning the whole thing, for example.

- Beating Overlord is reserved for Classics Kup

For anyone curious, no, being involved in creating the matchups in no way made it any easier to pick them.  My confidence in this bracket being remotely correct is very low.  It doesn't help that my knowledge of *masters is weak anyway, but there are actually quite a number of interesting matchups and opportunities for big upsets in later rounds.

BScorpinok75, for some reason your PDF cut off the top part of your picks. Also need Rhinox to resubmit his.


And if you wrote your picks in red text and then saved it as a JPEG, you're a bad person and my eyes hate you


Winner picks so far:


Overlord 7, PM Optimus Prime 5, Cyclonus 2, and Fangry, Star Saber, Minerva, Seacons, Brainstorm, Chromedome, Armada Optimus Prime, Crosshairs, Fort Max and "Epic Team Up" with 1 apiece

I'm not sure why I thought that High Tide would beat Fort Max, actually. That was probably wishful thinking. (Come on, guys, Max doesn't have anything going for him except being big and from the 80s!)

Reasonably confident in most of the others, though. Except, like, Apeface. Or Horri-Bull. Or Spinister. Or the Seacons. Or Slugslinger. Or Dreadwind. Or Getaway. Or Hot Rod. Or Darkwing. Okay, so I'm confident with all of my choices after the initial 64.

Just like last year, really great work putting this together. The seeding order feels pretty accurate, as well.

Spite in the vote is a wild card, so this year I tried to factor a bit of that in.
