Last week was a big week! Source Gaming surpassed 500 posts, Miitomo launched, we debuted 10 Misconceptions in Smash video and we discussed translation and localization. Next Sunday, I’ll be meeting Hideki Kamiya and taking a tour of Platinum Games with Masked Man. Next week will be very busy for me, so I’m sorry if I didn’t reply to your comment in this post.
This post contains comments from March 13th – March 16th! Let’s see what you guys had to say.
I looked into it, and basically people are assuming that’s what happened because of the shiny alts being dropped. Without a source, I’m not going to say anything definite, but it does seem a little suspicious.
Thank you! I guess it is a weird coincidence! I’ve only written 230-ish of the articles (not including SG Choice Articles)…. I remember starting several blogs before Source Gaming and failing to make the 5th post. So it’s good to see that I finally stuck with one.
Thanks for enjoying so much of our content! Hopefully we haven’t jumped the shark and continue to satisfy people with new and interesting content! With our opinion articles, we try to base it as much as possible on information, and opinions that don’t have some sort of logical basis to them won’t get approved. I don’t agree with all the opinions that are posted, but I at least respect them. I sometimes worry that readers will get turned away by an opinion they don’t like.
That would be about the average view count per day (Well, I think it’s closer to 5,000). However, some articles are extremely popular while some are not popular at all. If you look at last month’s Monthly Review, I started to included the least viewed articles as well. It also has the total hits per month, if you are really interested in how the site is doing.
Ahh yeah the Smash 4 Dojo! That’s part of the reason I got into Smash for speculation so much, which eventually led to the creation of Source Gaming itself. Basically, GameXplain, Smash 4 Dojo, Legends of Localization and Kantopia all had some influence on Source Gaming. One of my first interviews was with Brendon Wilson (the person behind the SSB4Dojo)!
That video was more for geared towards casual Smash fans. One thing I realized is that even though I had written The Definitive Unused Fighter List a long time, it wasn’t until Relax Alax made a video detailing the list that the list was taken more seriously. All of the things I mentioned in the video and on the list have their origins on Source Gaming, so for the regular readers it’s probably nothing new. Again, it’s intended audience is outside the core Smash speculation demographic. Unfortunately the third party information is the one thing people are obsessed with. The majority of comments on YouTube are about that piece of information.
Already replied, but I’ll post it here:
When I recreate this list, I’m actually adding a new category for Sonic / Snake in Melee and for Geno. I think the current classification system is a disservice for those instances.
Thanks for the correction! Will update the article with that information. That makes a lot more sense now.
Thanks for being on again! Ahhh, I see that also explains why that was dropped. Will update the article!
