(Thought about putting this in gaming but neeeehhhhh, this works better here IMO. If my opinion is wrong, just send it packing where it goes. )

For random thoughts you have about video games. Speculative, opinion, half-formed thoughts or whatever.

-----

I was thinking about like, if in another Smash Bros. game, if there was a counterpart character for every series represented, who would be Little Mac's counterpart character?

I keep thinking back to Bald Bull! Not only would it be really super cool to play as one of Mac's opponents for the first time, he already comes with his own ready-to-go Final Smash...the Bull Charge! ONE HIT KO!

I have a feeling that due to the very iconic method of stopping it, they would include that though as a risk-reward thing for Bald Bull, so that if you hit him in the gut it'd send HIM flying instead, and people would end up abusing that? Then again I think in tournaments there's no items anyway, so hmm.

The obvious counterpart to Little Mac is Mr. Dream

That or King Hippo, who seems to get a lot of billing as the featured antagonist in some ways.

I'm imagining the Neptunia games being on Nintendo Switch. Would it sell more?

I thought about those two but gameplay-wise, I don't think they'd really fit as well. Mr. Dream is...bland as hell and King Hippo, well...in a game where it's essential to jump to recover, King Hippo is known for....well, you know.

Bald Bull's got the more iconic status about him, as he's been in every Punch-Out game (aside from the arcade Super Punch Out!!) and he's got that "I've been in other games" slight cred of being in Arm Wrestling as well.

Though if he's voiced, I think he should speak English with an accent, rather than being entirely in Turkish or whatever the language is there (I can't remember right now what it is there x.o). For sake of common accessibility. And re-creating Mike Tyson's Punch Out quote taunts.

Was about to post this until I saw you thinking the same thing. Pretty sure Nintendo considers (or did) Arm Wrestling a bonafide spin-off of Punch-Out, so Bull would make the most sense as far as representing the series goes.

Random thoughts about video games? This may sound pathetic, but seeing the last official games of the Valis series going from action platformers to hentai is to me like seeing a child actor for a show you watched off and on grow up to hit rock bottom and be forced to do hardcore porn to pay for their heroin addiction.

I'm surprised that with all the shoutouts to pre-Mario games in Smash they've never referenced Radar Scope or Space Fever. I mean, they did a sequel to the latter on Game Boy Camera so....

I have Famicom-only title Holy Diver on the brain right now, mostly because it's my first in a line of challenges I'm going to be posting to YouTube on my "NES Expert" YouTube channel.

I've beaten Ninja Gaiden and Ghosts N' Goblins, and man, Holy Diver feels tougher than BOTH OF THEM. It took me four hours and I got about a third of the way through Level 4. I haven't fully watched any TAS in a very long time so I'm actually very rusty on what the last three bosses actually are. Good thing, I wanna play this more blind than anything.

Maybe if I'm lucky I'll be one of the only ones (if not THE only one) on the forum who's beaten it without cheating and can prove it. We'll see how many hours it takes!

No savestates are being used in this run EXCEPT where I have to stop the stream for the night. In that case I simply make a savestate on the Game Over screen so that I can continue where I left off as if it were one concurrent playthrough. No savescumming at all. Promise. :<

I had a weird thought earlier today, I wasn't around for when the first Zelda game came out. But I'm in my mid twenties now, and I'll most likely get to experience new Zelda games for the rest of my life. Like, it's not like they are gonna stop making them, and that's gonna add up to quite a few more games. :v

I'm still bummed Rising Thunder got canned. Literally the first fighter where I got comfy and didn't have to worry about execution...

Fighting game accessibility has improved, but I doubt there's going to be another Rising Thunder. People love their shoryuken - motions.

I've been playing Wild Guns (the original) lately. Probably the first time in a while I've gotten this hooked on an arcade-style game. I wish I had gotten into it as a kid, I think it would have easily been one of my favorites.

(Also, Hiroyuki Iwatsuki did most of the soundtrack, who is probably one of the most overrated SNES game musicians)
