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.

@  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.

@  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

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

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

There could be as little as 10 to 15 years between Darkwings. It's probably more than that, but if Jim was in his twenties during the original show, that might make him only forty something. We know that Launchpad was born in 1987, so he's in his early thirties. Drake is probably similarly aged.

Ok, my friend told me the Darkwing Duck episode is a standalone ep so I went and watched it.

Duck me, that was FANTASTIC! I was screaming with glee at mostly everything I can remember homaging the original.

- Sidekick? Wow.
- Breaking in was like the 4th wall OG DW ep when Bushroot was going to replace him as an environmentally friendly character on TV.
- the art work was so classic tv version! I love it!
- the Captain America ness had me wanting him to stop. Too much.
- the sign? I knew it!
- duck me, the ending?!? Even the person responsible is correct! I almost didn't chain the clue that I saw. Holy cow, the writing is soooo good!

The weird thing tho, for me, was the action. I... don't recall that much martial arts or violence that ... makes contact in the original? It wasn't cartoon violence during the hand to hand.

Ok, now who the hex is that female? I don't recall that person appearing in the OG show. I think? Maybe she's a comic thing?

Maaaan, I want so want a Darkwing Show to happen!


...female?

Launchpad has everything on VHS too. Which is kind of telling of the time the show aired.

 

VHS was really used to record TV shows from the early 1980s up until the mid-2000s when Tivo and DVRs finally became a thing. So sometime between that time frame.

I'm assuming they mean the action figure villain, Hot Couture. The writers revealed in an interview that's a new character because if they only ever got to write 1 Darkwing episode they weren't passing up the chance to make a new villain.

Darkwing strikes me as the kind of show that was probably decently popular with kids but not enough to get any kind of proper conclusion. Note that barely anyone seems interested in the signing at the start of the episode and Drake mentions being picked on as a kid for being a fan. Compare that to something in real life like Power Rangers which was a juggernaut and the leads can still pull in a crowd when they do signings. Jim also seems annoyed that the only audience he gets is 30 somethings who gush about what the show meant to them and gets excited when he sees Dewey believing it's someone younger getting into his work. Clearly this was Jim's one and only starring role and his narcissist enough to ride it whilst lamenting his moment in the spotlight was in some kid's show barely anyone remembers.

Yeah, I meant Haut Couture, spelling. So she IS new! I want to read the interview. Got a link?

Oh, yeah, I was amazed when Jim Starling was excited to see a young fan. That made me happy since it showed that he cared for children (well, children liking his show. But still!). Of course, I didn't know what was going to happen later but then, at the start, I thought Jim Starling was a great guy.

Finally got around to the DW ep, and also The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck which we had somehow skipped.

The former was solid, though it didn't really wow me - although Launchpad quoting the theme song got me pretty hard.

But the latter was superb. I went in thinking flashback, ugh. Probably pretty dull. But no! Goldie, a Cabrera, time-travelling Gyro? Brilliant. Loved it.

So there's a Darkwing toy made in the style of the original show. He'd fit with the original Launchpad.

Is there word about a new Darkwing and Negaduck toy? There's new Gizmo Duck toy but not an original Gizmo Duck toy, right?

(What's the short hand term for the new series vs old? Neo and OG?)

I don't think "87" works for Darkwing Duck, though.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I think Fero was asking if Gyro is on the back of the box and Della is on the front. I think that's the case given this close up picture.

WHAT is THAT because WOW

From what the creator says on the deviantart page: "Inside each box is licorice gum, stickers, buttons and four tiny, itty-bitty Della Duck comics!"

 

They say they can't sell them though because Disney, so I don't know how you get one. I just know they plan to display these at their artist booth at conventions.
