Featured Comments


This article looks at comments made from the August 17th- August 24 (Japan time).

Still a little bit behind. Hoping to catch up this week. September will be Tokyo Game Show, which I’ll be attending so I want to catch up before then. If you haven’t joined Source Gaming’s Discord channel, please do! If you have written a Guest Article in the past, please message me directly so I can update your flair on the channel.

There’s a lot of comments to look at, so let’s get started!

Also, there’s over 52 comments on Dream Roster – Fire Emblem Warriors. I don’t have a strong connection to the Fire Emblem series as I’ve only played Awakening for an hour. Sorry, I just don’t have any informed opinions on FE.

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!


Thanks for helping out with proofing!

I worry about keeping the quality up. I’ll just keep trying my best!


It’s kind of difficult for me to talk about my personal life sometimes — I tend to be very private about my own thoughts and feelings…even among friends. Since it was the 2nd year anniversary, I really wanted to provide a personal reflection of the experience so far. My goal was to provide a deeper understanding of who I am to everyone.


I honestly thought Kantopia has been going for longer than that :X. I hope Kantopia continues to provide you with amazing opportunities too! I look forward to collaborating again in the future!


Thank you for your support!

I would love to do another epic poll like that. Maybe in September. I’ll need more help than ever to get as many votes, since Smash hype is down.


It wasn’t really an interview for Sakurai though, so he really didn’t talk that much (unfortunately). I do think that exception was also made as the hats serve as references to the various generations.


Let me explain my crazy idea, as your comment reminded me of it and it’s a goal of mine for the site.

There’s actually a category on the site called “Project Omega“, and Why Does Wario Fart? and F-Zero Pilots and Demon Kings Fight Alike, Nintendo IPs in Smash, …IPs Not in Smash, Star Fox Series Representation in Smash and Zelda Series Representation in Smash. I guess the Definitive Unused Fighter List, Is Sakurai a Liar, and Masahiro Sakurai Timeline should be added to this category too….maybe Frostwraith’s Clone article too…and the Sakurai On series

Project Omega is basically trying to research EVERYTHING about a character in Smash. Compare text relating to them in Japanese/ English, look over their history…explain their movesets. Everything. We have plans to do additional characters for this series, but as you can imagine it’s a lot of time and effort to spend on one article. Nantendo has been working on and off on a couple of things relating to Project Omega I believe.

Either way, I’ve been trying to think of better ways to organize content. We are approaching 850 articles (this week). We average 60 articles a month…so we’ll hit 1,000 around October. I think it’s pretty difficult to find the information we’ve already posted. If anyone has any suggestions let me know (in the comments or DM on Twitter!).


That’s much better than the one I came up with! I should’ve finished reading the comments before writing my responses. Screw it, we’ll do it live!


Sorry, I don’t recall that. Let me know if you find that quote!


I’m fairly convinced that Cloud and Square had licensing issues. Smash uses non-union voice actors, while Square uses exclusively union. This means that music was probably more expensive and using the English voice actor for Cloud was probably legally impossible.

Even with Snake, I don’t think “Ah yes, a Nintendo all-star!”. Especially when MGS4 was (at the time) a PS4 exclusive. I’ve argued this in the past, but I do see Smash towards a celebration of video game stars in general. I think it will still be firmly rooted in Nintendo IPs, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Master Chief somehow made his way in.

At the end of the day, it boils down to personal preference.


Thank you! Hopefully we can keep providing new and interesting content :X


Look at me!

  1. I think you mislabeled my SG Rap comment as Mettaur’s. I demand credit for my silly comment! 😛

    Yeah, the way Final Fantasy appears in Smash seems to imply licensing issues, which is a shame. I wasn’t aware that Square-Enix exclusively used union voice actors, which certainly complicates matters. Since Smash uses mostly non-union VAs (I believe at least Hynden Walch goes uncredited as she’s union), Steve Burton would have to either go uncredited, go under a pseudonym, or get replaced. I hear that S-E has a policy on Cloud’s English voice that requires Burton to voice Cloud and be credited as such, so the only way to give Cloud an English voice would be for Smash to open up to union VAs, which likely requires more work than it’s worth for one character’s voice.

  2. Considering how much I loved the articles on Wario and Ganondorf, I think this Project Omega idea is absolutely fascinating. Of course, I like long articles filled to the brim with information, so maybe I’m a biased sample.
