The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

Up to this point, I think all characters have appeared in conjunction with video games before any other media. There is no Captain N video game.

 

I have to agree with D Buster on Captain N.  He never appeared in a video game, which is a must for a character to appear in Smash Bros.

 

Well I get what you are saying, but technically. R.O.B. isn't from a game. He's an accessory.

 

I know R.O.B. is a bit different situation/story then Captain N, but I'm still hopeful.

 

Now, to be fair I do doubt he'll be included, but that doesn't change the fact I really want him in.

I didn't say that a character had to be in a game. I said "appeared in conjunction with a game". That applies to R.O.B., who first appeared in conjunction with Gyromite and Stack Up, and is featured on the box art for both games.

The Castlevania trailer didn't hit me with as much of an OMG moment as the Mega Man trailer did, but the excitement is still really sticking with me. I'm really looking forward to trying out the Belmonts. I love that they're bringing the bosses in as stage hazards, with particular focus on including all the bosses from the original game. And I can't wait to hear all the music arrangements. 34 songs for a single fighter (+ echo) and stage is kinda crazy, but it's a great kind of crazy. I was planning on not buying any more games before Christmas to save some money, but I'm really starting to doubt I can hold out even just those couple extra weeks.

 

So now that Castlevania's out of the way, what other franchises would make sense as the next big one to include? So far, we have Snake, Sonic, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Ryu, Cloud, Bayonetta, and Simon/Richter. Who's left to make a big splash? Master Chief? Kratos? Someone from Assassin's Creed?

 

It would never happen, but the character that next comes to mind that I'd love to see would be BoF Ryu. The Altered Beast centurion could be neat too.

Well technically Captain N appeared in conjunction with many games. Many were featured in his show.

 

R.O.B. still wasn't IN a game. He was just used to play a couple, and I wouldn't think Captain N would be that strange compared to R.O.B.

 

Yes because Captain N was only in a cartoon, the chances of him being in the game are pretty slim, but I'm optimistic and saying it's not impossible.

 

Still highly unlikely sadly.

 

(Though if you have to have a game to get in, ironically Nester has a bigger chance as he does have a game to his name.)

I'd honestly say at this point what makes Captain N the most unlikely is that it's from a piece of ancillary media that Japan never even got in the first place.

But then, we're in a timeline where people are seriously discussing the viability of Kevin Keene in Smash, and that fact utterly delights me.

So, let's talk about it. You'd assume that the Zapper is going to be his main weapon, and then his specials would be the different Power Pad abilities from his belt buckle, right? I remember him calling up a bat before and some sort of glowing power ball.

I wonder if the other guest companies will get additional fighters and echoes to be equal to konamis representation. Ken and Shadow are easy enough tweaks to existing characters. Then there are the rumors of Tekken characters...

If course, Capcom had two this generation vs Sega and Namcos one so IDK.

On the one hand, characters from other fighting games bore the hell out of me. We already know their fighting style and we can play as them in their own games whenever we want. I want to see how Paperboy or the chef from BurgerTime fights.

 

On the other hand, I also kind of feel like having Street Fighter represented means there should be a Mortal Kombat character too.

OK, I just had an idea for what I'd really like to see. Forget Trevor as a second echo of Simon. What I'd love to see would be a bunch of the Belmonts as alternate costumes for Simon and Richter, just like how the Koopalings are alternate costumes for Bowser Jr. Maybe something like Christopher, Trevor, and Julius from Simon, along with Sonia, Juste, and Leon from Richter. Probably more modeling work than they're willing to put in, but I would love to see that happen.

I was just thinking that this morning. I think the reason why Shovel Knight is only an assist is because the games never really took off in Japan, and Caption N never broadcast there. If characters like Zero are only going to be assists then the best chance we'd have of even MAYBE seeing Kevin would be as an Assist Trophy, and like you, I'd be more than happy with that.

Still think Nester has a chance, after all, he DID get a game:

https://en.wikipedia...s_Funky_Bowling

 

Hell, maybe take down multiple homages at once?  IF I were doing this, I'd design Nester as the ultimate 90s "cool guy" with a backwards cap and jacket.  Give him the Powerglive and zapper and build a move set around that.  And his alternate decos?  Variations on Nintendo marketing slogans like "Play it Loud", "Playing with Power", "Get N or Get Out" and the final alternate deco would be the Captain N homage.

 

Maybe not what fans really want, but probably the most practical all things considered.

Nester might have a game, but I honestly lump in with Kevin for the reason that said games never got to Japan, and if the games don't get to Japan they might as well not exist to Smash Bros.  Duck Hunt represents the Light Gun, but that's limited to Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley, and Wild Gunman.  But games like To The Earth or Gumshoe don't even get a trophy.  Heck, Barker Bob's Trick Shooting is the only other game the Duck Hunt dog is besides VS Duck Hunt and that gets nothing to its credit either!

 

Likewise, look at Kid Icarus Uprising: the game constantly emphasizes Pit's last adventure was 25 years ago-- completely ignoring the US exclusive Gameboy title "Of Myths and Monsters".  

 

So Nester, whose only real "appearance" in anything was having his design used as Lark in Pilotwings 64... well...

Both supporting and contradicting your point, because life is funny like that:

 

Nintendo is a Japanese company, and even if it wasn't, the Japanese market is incredibly important when it comes to video games (among other things).  It is perfectly reasonable for perceived popular opinion from Japan to influence Nintendo's decisions.  Yet, I was under the impression that Ridley would never be a playable character and Shovel Knight would never show up at all in Smash Bros. because neither is popular enough in Japan.  So sometimes, Nintendo goes against what "Japan" seems to want.

 

That something never released in Japan explains a character's lack of popularity, but when we're dealing with games that are so old, I don't think it becomes a credible reason alone for exclusion.  Nester's Funky Bowling never released in Japan, they didn't get Nintendo Power (of if they did, it wasn't like the North American version) so they don't know Nester and if they know Howard, it is because he's basically the alter ego of Howard Phillips (former face of Nintendo of America).  If for some reason, one or both of these characters suddenly became hugely popular in Japan, the fact that Howard never appeared in a game and that Nester never appeared in a Japanese game (and appeared in only an obscure one elsewhere) would not keep either character from appearing in Smash Bros.  Other factors could; I don't know who owns the rights to either Howard or Nester.  Oh, and I know no one brought up Howard, but the two were best as a duo.  Well, maybe Nester with his son would also work.

 

Anyway, the main thing I'm hoping for now is that we see more crossover between Assist Trophies, Boss Characters, Characters, and Stage Enemies (Hazards).  Right now, a character appearing as one means it won't appear as another except for the recently revealed Rathalos and (IIRC) some Pokémon.  As soon as we have more crossover between any and all of these, seeing a character appear as one stops being so bittersweet.  Becoming an Assist Trophy, Boss Character, or Stage Enemy becomes a potential step towards becoming a playable Character.  The first step is the easiest; not getting an existing Assist Trophy, Boss Character, or Stage Enemy as a playable character, but having some playable characters also show up as one or multiple of those three.  After all, the needed assets are already in the game at this point.
