Another week of comments!
This post contains comments from March 27th-April 2nd! Hope you guys enjoyed our April Fools posts!
Personally, I think Elma and Cross would have an equal shot. Chrom was almost selected over Robin, it’s just that Chrom’s moveset was too similar to Marth and Ike so he couldn’t stand out. Moveset potential does matter!
Personally, I’m a little sad to see the console generation over so soon, but I can understand why Nintendo wants to move on. The Wii U hasn’t been successful, and even Smash, Mario Kart, Splatoon and Mario Maker weren’t enough to push more console sales. It’s too bad. I can see the Wii U being the second GameCube, and gain a huge following several years from now.
Yeah…it’s sad…it’s the same thing with clickbait. People complain about it, but then they don’t click on articles that aren’t clickbait. Or they won’t share them. A huge part of what drives most content creators is demand. Without an audience, you might as well be talking to yourself. With Source Gaming, we don’t run ads, and we don’t actively make a profit off the site. Because of this, we have a freedom over what we write and publish — it’s a hobby for all of us. This can be good, as we are free to write whatever we may like, but at the same time people might not be interested in what we talk about. So, we try to find a balance…but it’s difficult.
Completely agree with you. Personally, I’m a strong supporter for 9-Volt, but I know that Ashley would make 100% more sense as the next WarioWare representative. It’s just that Ashley is more of a breakout character. I find it a little funny that Black Mage had such a huge outcry, but Sakurai has never once even mentioned him. Eggplant / Palutena relationship is essentially the same as Black Mage/ Cloud.
The original idea for this article came via a company contacting us for Sponsored Content on Source Gaming (I don’t know what company we would have actually promoted). They suggested several article ideas…one of them being Top 10 Things in Mario. The idea was so absurd to me, I knew I had to do it for an April Fools Day gag. For the record, we haven’t accepted any sponsored content.
The Case for Mercedes Benz was a recurring joke with the staff. We added it the posting lineup, and kept delaying it until we decided to post it as an April Fools day article. I think it was on the posting lineup for over three months! We originally planned on making the Top 10 Things in Mario as a video, but life got in the way.
Another fun fact is that I had no idea about the Cooking with Conn0r video! This is why he kept saying not to tell me. I was a little confused when I woke up!
100 tomatoes, crushed -> The Maxim Tomato heals 100%
3 cups of Red Hot Fire™ sauce -> 3 Fire Emblem Characters
Shaved Ice (2 cubes) -> Ice Climbers being cut
1 cup chopped Fox Tails -> Fox (set up for the next one)
1/4 cup chopped Canine Teeth -> Wolf, being a semi-clone (should have done a better job differianting the measurements)
1 tablespoon of Baby Tears -> Salt
5 cups of water -> 5 Games (Smash 64, Melee, Brawl, 3DS and Wii U)
2 cups of Red Hot Fire™ sauce -> 2 Fire Emblem Characters as DLC
Leftovers of a Peanut Butter Sandwich -> Etika’s nuts
Crocodile Skin -> King K. Rool
A gallon of Dragon Scales -> Ridley
1 Plucked Black Chicken Breast -> Dark Pit (Black Pit in Japanese)
2,500 mg of table salt -> A deadly amount of salt.
Reading over the second page should make some of these more obvious.
Crushing the tomatoes will take some time, so it’s best to outsource the crushing to another team. Even if the team doesn’t have experience crushing tomatoes -> Brawl being made by Game Arts.
