@  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 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.

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

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

@  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.

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

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

I dunno. This Peter seems fun. Not a constant mopey ball of doughy angst because Raimi had some aversion to the fun, quippy side of Spidey.

True, but you can't deny that a good portion of the looks into Pete's life do come from Rami film moments.

 

But man I never would of them to go all out Spider-Verse like they did in the movie. I mean it made sense to have Pete show up and Gwen and Noir are decently well known, but adding in Penni and her Sp-Dr mech and Spider-Ham, that has me both worried and hyped to all ends. Granted this is an animated film so they are marketing to the kids more and why not through in the talking Pig for fun. My only thoughts are where is Miguel and Mayday? I get that they have the Spider-women covered with Gwen whose popularity has skyrocketed in the years since the Spider-Verse comics.  And since they are already dealing with Alternate realities it's probably easier not to throw in time travel with the M2 and 2099 universes as well as using Mayday would be focusing on Pete more than Miles.

So, I'm kinda wondering, since they show animated versions of some of the Raimi film's famous scenes, if Peter Parker in Spiderverse is meant to be an older version of that Spider-man?

I'd be willing to place odds that that might well be the intent, though i'd also bet nobody will outright say it. There'll be just enough there to imply but never confirm.

Like Transformers: Prime taking place after a that-universe version of the 2007 move

The biggest problem with the idea that this is the Raimi Spider-man is that this Peter has a personality that isn't Droopy the Dog


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Very true. I still wouldn't put it past them. Plus, you can fudge the personality shift considering this is supposed to be an older Peter. Though it's probably just easter egg style nods to iconic Spidey movie moments.

I too would have liked to see Miguel there too.

Who's the Penni anime girl with a mech?

Maybe after all the angst and drama of the first three films came and went, that Spider-Man's life got easier and he was allowed to have fun again, possibly even settling down with MJ after finally getting the time needed to work things out between the two of them.

 

As bad as Spider-Man 3 was, it did probably have the most scenes of the trilogy in which Peter was shown having fun being Spidey (before all the drama and angst came coming back in full, that is).

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.

Think Neon Genesis Evangelion with the Eva just under Hulk buster sizes and CPU's ran with help with super intelligent radioactive spider that has to bite you to form a mental bond to run the Mech. Get in the SP//dr Peni!

 

She was introduced in the first Spider-Verse crossover with her own issue of Edge of Spider-Verse and recently repeated that with an Edge of Spider-Geddon issue.

Jake Johnson's delivery even sort-of sounds like a natural progression of Tobey Maguire's more soft-spoken Peter, I think. I don't find it hard to imagine him becoming much more laid-back as he got older and more experienced.

Well it's a bit more than the Japanese series Spider-man with his Leopardon mecha.

 

 

There was also the Spidermobile that was a bit more Spider Speed Buggy.....

If they do it probably will only be a small flash of a dimension through a portal or such. I think they are already pushing their luck with Ham and Penni.

That said after rereading the Spider-verse books again I loved it when the Leopardon Spidey got to talk to Mangaverse Spidey and straight up black and white Manga Spidey.

I just assumed those scenes similar to the Raimi movies were for the more casual audience's benefit, as non-comic readers would probably recognise scenes from the first movies over famous comic scenes.  They're not even portraying exactly what happened in those movies to a tee, either.
