This article looks at comments made from the August 10th- August 17 (Japan time).
I’m a little behind with featured comments. Sorry about that, but between organizing the Dean Harrington interview, the live stream and another interview I’ve been pretty busy. The first half of the live stream is rendering now for those of you who missed it. The second half will be uploaded in the coming days too. Thanks to everyone that showed up, and participated. It was really a lot of fun! Let me know your honest opinions of the stream. What you liked, what we need to improve for next time, etc. Hopefully we can perfect the formula for the future!
I’d like to think that I’ll be less busy in the coming weeks…but I probably won’t be. Next month is Tokyo Game Show and my birthday (turning 28!) and I’ll have a full schedule for work.
There’s a lot of comments to look at, so let’s get started!
Remember, don’t insult other posters. If you insult other posters, your post that you might have spent so much time on might not get approved, and thrown in the trash. Stay classy!
This sounds right. Rights/ legal stuff sometimes escapes the fandom as we don’t have access to contracts.
I like Cranky as an option myself. He could have a lot of individuality added to him to make him really stand out.
A lot of people including MagcargoMan, Spiral and Zoniken wrote some in depth responses to Voyager’s articles. All very well thought out! Thank you!
Yeah…people were pretty silly with the “limited spots” mentality. I think we tried discouraging people to think like that, as we just wanted to measure general appeal…but people’s agendas got the best of them. That’s why some characters got hate vote bombed, and did poorly. The full data can be seen here. Seeing the breakdown of the numbers really helps to figure out why the results are the way they are. We should do another poll like that sometime, but I’m afraid without it being “Smash season” there wouldn’t be a lot of interest.
I think MK is way more violent for different reasons. Bayonetta is more playful about it, while MK tries to be very serious. With Scorpion, I feel like his spear would need to impale, and for some characters that would be a no-no. Also, it’d be a shame to have him set fire to someone and not have the “crispy” guy come up.
Great! I need to start playing some Green/Blue myself!
Yeah, I fully expected Bomberman too ;_;
I agree with this. I don’t think Master Chief is very likely, but I don’t think he’s impossible.
Thank you! Glad we can contribute so much information to such an important series!
There’s a LOT of comments from Voyager’s and APC’s articles; I don’t think I’ve seen any really bad comments either — you guys are the best! There’s a lot more I could’ve (and should’ve) featured, but I ran out of time. Same with this week. D: Part 4 of Voyager’s article has 41 comments for example!
Would love to do a video response to featured comments, but I need to learn video editing first. I have a great idea for a video that I’d like to make, but my lack of experience is holding me back mentally. Then because I never make it, I don’t get better at video editing. It’s quite the Catch-22. At the same time, I enjoy writing because I can include links right in the content for those who want it. Writing a response, and saying a response can create totally different experiences, and one isn’t inherently better than the other. I should be also including YouTube/ Twitter comments, but I’m afraid I’d explode :X
Kind of doubt it =/. A lot of Kirby stuff seems to only get released in Japan.
But Cloud has way more appeal — even among Nintendo fans themselves. Cloud is way more well known to the general population than Belmont and Banjo-Kazooie.
I didn’t see the kitchenware! I was pretty rushed, and I didn’t have much time to look around. They also didn’t have the face towel (which is something I really wanted ;_;). The CD is great, but I almost don’t want to open mine in order to keep it as a collectors item. I keep needing to find new versions on YouTube as they get taken down though X.x
The Dedede Plate is super expensive. I actually saw a writer from Nintendo Wire when I was waiting in line, and he told me it was his 2nd time going and he bought the Dedede Plate the first time. Insane!
I thought it’d be fun to reuse the Sauce Gaming category for that post 🙂 I was trying to fix the position of the pages, and found a way to reactivate the categories on the post…so now they can be seen. Still working on the position of the pages.
Mains: Yoshi (64), Game and Watch (Melee), Wario (Brawl), Wario/Pac-Man (Smash for 3DS/Wii U)
