Pickles Recommends: Webcomics


Here are some webcomics that I like to read! The ones on this list are mostly gag-a-day strips; most of the plot-driven comics I like I’m not even done archive binging on.

http://nedroid.com/ – Nedroid. The humor… It’s pretty much just inexplicably awesome. I cannot explain it whatsoever, but I THINK it’s styled like a kids’ comic?

http://www.chainsawsuit.com/ chainsawsuit is made by Kris Straub of Starslip fame. It has the dumbest humor ever, but somehow it always makes me laugh. I’ve probably laughed out loud at it more than any others on this list.

http://www.smbc-comics.com/ Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is the silliest intellectual comic I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.

http://www.qwantz.com/index.php Dinosaur Comics. Every single comic has the exact same panels, just different dialogue. So author Ryan North has to make up for it with ingenious writing.

My Super Smash Bros. 4 Dream Roster


Thedude3445’s Dream SSB4 Roster V1.0

* Unlockable
+New Character

Plus their final smashes, well for most characters. I’m partial to transformations, albeit non-invincible ones. I would really like to see a mode where you can permenantly play as each of the transformations in a battle, so it could be like Giga Bowser vs. Super Sonic vs. Fierce Diety Link.

All villains are unlockable because that would be awesome; unlocking a character after you defeat them in an epic boss battle.

69 characters, 37 newcomers, 32 returning. 4 transformation characters.

(this is actually slightly less than I was shooting for; 75 characters. But around there is fine. Remember that the iDensity Discs that the Wii U uses are 25GB, and that’s only single-layered; Brawl did double layer on the Wii discs, so SSB4 could do that on here too if it wants.)

Mario Series—-
Mario- transforming into full-on Fire Mario. Like the final sprites in this sprite sheet: http://www.mfgg.net/index.php?act=resdb&param=03&c=1&id=5059 .
Luigi*- Same Final smash… whatever it was….
Peach- Shadow Queen dangit! This would be completely amazing!
Bowser*- Giga Bowser
+Geno*- Turns everyone into those scarecrow status effects from SMRPG for 10-15 seconds. They have no recoil but they also can’t move, so he can deal massive damage (by hitting their weak points)
Geno would probably only be in if Sqeenix got some reps, IMO.
+Paper Mario- No idea about the final smash o.o
+Bowser Jr./Shadow Mario*- Hopping onto the Mecha Bowser from Super Mario Sunshine, which would appear in the background of the stage, and blasting away.

Donkey Kong Series—–
DK- DK needs a Giga DK too D=
Diddy- Same final smash
+K. Rool*- no idea about his final smash o.o

Yoshi/Wario Series—–
Yoshi- Same Final Smash, but not invincible please :/
Wario*- Same Final Smash, but not invincible please :/
+Waluigi*- How about Super Waluigi. But really terrible. Make Waluigi as much of a joke character as possible 😛

Zelda Series——
Link (Skyward Sword Style)- Fierce Diety Link FTW!
Zelda/Shiek- Same final smash.
But what about having to unlock Shiek? That would be interesting.
Gannondorf (severely decloned)*- Ganon as a transformation not attack.
+Imp Minda-Wolf Link/TP Midna- transform into that giant battle spider thing that was awesome!
+The villain from Skyward Sword*
I can already tell that he’s going to be a character worth remembering for years to come. Probably.

Metroid Series——-
Samus/ZSS- Same
+Ridley*- no idea of fs.
Predictable because Metroid has so few characters lol.

F-Zero Series——-
Captain Falcon*- Doing a version of the Falcon Punch from the anime (www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFtw7qW7Vcw); he punches his target, pausing the action, but then it goes back to the gameplay and a giant beam of energy shoots out above and below him (like how the galaxy is exploding in the anime), damaging anyone above/below him.
+Black Shadow*- The opposite of the Falcon Punch; he jumps at the target, grabs them, punches them, and throws them down at high speeds, almost always resulting in a KO if they’re over an edge.
+Rick???*- Since there haven’t been any F-Zero games since Climax, we have no way of knowing if the anime was actually canon or not. I’m assuming it is, and that Rick would be a lot like Captain Falcon, but less fire attacks and more guns.

Kirby Series——-
Kirby- Turns into the Galactic Knight guy from Kirby Super Star Ultra. Completely awesome.
Meta-Knight- Same FS. Nerf him please!!!!
Dedede*- same.
+Waddle Dee?- He’s the 4th player in the upcoming Kirby Wii. If it proves popular enough, maybe he’ll get in. IDK FS.

Star Fox Series——-
Fox- Turns into James McFreakingCloud. No idiotic Landmaster :/
Falco*-Hops in an Arwing and gets to blast at foes from offscreen like Snake’s Final Smash in Brawl. Except with lasers.
+Krystal- Gets on her pterodactyl and soars around at insane speeds, like Lyn’s Assist Trophy attack, except controllable.
+Peppy*- Surely a great WTF character, but only if SF643D sells well. Which it will duh 😛 FS- hops in the Blue Marine (WTF??? :P), still onscreen, and can shoot at people around the stage.

Pokemon Series——–
Pikachu- Same
Jigglypuff*- Same
+Someone Second Gen.- Placeholder Scizor (Hey he was #19 in the IGN Top 100 Pokemon so maybe!)
+Plusle & Minun??- Pikachu’s except somewhat different; like 2 sparks flying around, orbiting each other as they smack into opponents.
+Metagross*- YES. HELL FREAKING YES. Final Smash is meteor mash and you know it.
Lucario???- If he’s not replaced by….
+Zorark*- automatic shoe-in. Illusion ability. Seriously. Final Smash would be transforming into Genesect, Kyruem (sp?), or Landorous, and rampaging everywhere. Because why the hell not?
That would be 1 rep. per generation, unless both Plusle & Minun and Metagross get in, and unless Lucario goes away, which he probably will.

Fire Emblem Series——
Marth- Same
Ike*- Now in Vanguard Class. Complete with the ear ring. 8) A lot faster now since he’s like way buffer and can hold his sword well.
+Black Knight*- He stabs the ground with his sword, and then his armor bursts apart (with Ashera in the background like with Palutena in Pit’s) so he only has some chainmail left, and his armor re-forms into a sword. He’s just as powerful, but now he’s much faster and his sword is even longer.
+Lyn- Does her assist trophy move, except much mroe powerful.
+Eliwood*- He gets on a freaking horse for his final smash.
+Hector*- No idea actually…

Earthbound Series——-
Ness*- Same
Lucas*-Same?
+Who could be the third Earthbound character? Not Claus. Maybe Pokey in EB form or Paula maybe?

Retro——-
+Balloon Fighter- turns into a buff anime guy with 3 (!!!) balloons and insane power. lol
+Mach Rider*- Revamping MR into a gritty action racer/shooter should be Nintendo’s next project, so putting him in SSB4 first like they did with Pit is a must.
Pit- Same
+If KI:U is popular enough, maybe anime sword-guy, Palutena, or Medusa could get in? Or Eggplant Wizard. 😛
Ice Climbers- Exact. Same. 😛
+Sukapon*- Joy Mech Fight was one of Nintendo’s first fighters and was a whole lot like Smash Bros. He is basically the daddy of the series!
ROB- Same.
+Takamaru*-The best Samurai ever; comes with a Panda alternate costume (Show Me Your News inside joke :P)
+Little Mac- Pretty much the perfect fighter. Duh. Final Smash is Giga Mac. ‘Nuff Said.
Mr. Game and Watch*- The Octopus could be changed, I guess?

Modern——
Olimar- Same
+Louie*-Gets on the Titan Dweevil and controls it. Because he is evil…. O_O Anyway he’d be basically the Luigi-fied version of Olimar, with slightly different attacks and a different control method (he chucks the Pikmin at a slight angle instead of straight ahead, for example.)
+Starfy*- Maybe.
+AC Villager- There are so many possibilities for a final smash that there’s no point in even guessing 😛
+Mii- Duh. With the 3DS version focusing on RPG elements, the Mii will definitely be in and will have a customizable moveset.
+Isaac*- Except in his Dark Dawn form, which means 40 years old and extremely awesome.
+Batallion Soldiers*- From Batallion Wars; a group of 4 tiny guys, each in the foot classes of the game; soldier, mech, flamethrower, bazooka. You play as a 5th guy and command them around with the attacks. Like a cross between Olimar and Ice Climbers.

3rd Party——-
Snake*- Same? I would like to see Old Snake in here somehow, though probably just as an alt. costume I guess.
Sonic*- Change Super Sonic into something that’s actually beatable or at least dodgeable, PLEASE.
+Travis Touchdown*- Complete epic win, that’s all.
+Maxwell*- From Scribblenauts. The series is hugely popular and he fits right in with the Nintendo cast. An infinite amount of possible moves.
+Rocket*- AKA the Blue Slime from Dragon Quest. The mascot of the series. With Nintendo’s huge partnership with Squeenix to make this series, this seems pretty obvious.

Removed——
Wolf- I don’t really see why he was in in the first place. He was obviously going to be a clone of Fox and there’s not that much to change him to make him different. Meh. I guess he could be in there
Roy- Same. With Eliwood being in, Roy becomes completely useless.
Toon Link- Unncecessary clone.

Extra——
Pokemon Trainer. I think he should skip out on the regular roster, but then come back as DLC. But not just him, but 5; 1 for each generation. 2= Chikorita/Quilava/Feraligatr, 3= Treeko/Swampert/Blaziken, 4= Chimchar/Prinplup/Torrterra, 5= Tepig/Servine/Samurott. Win. Also I would love each of the Pokemon Trainers to get a transformation final smash into one legendary: 1= Mewtwo (except not sucky like in Melee) 2=Raikou 3=Deoxys 4= hmm… Giratina? 5= Victini, Landorous, or Genesect. IDK.

I thought this was an okay list, though there were a few I might want to change later. I’m still on the fence about Wolf, and it wouldn’t kill me to have Toon Link/Toon Zelda/Toon Ganonondorf if there were enough open spots. That’s why this is just a V1.0. so please feel free to criticize this as much as you want.

Just a little thing I wrote that amused me a lot 😛

Memories of Player’s Guides


Do you guys remember, way back when Player’s Guides were the way to go, before GameFAQs had so many reliable guides? Great times.

One of my favorite Player’s Guides was the one for Animal Crossing. I loved looking at all the furniture and clothes and tried to formulate what I would use to design my house with, and how much money I needed. Looking at all of the NES games was awesome too; My cousin (who was like 14 and I was 9), brother and I spent most of the summer of 2004 playing Animal Crossing, trying to find all of the NES games. We eventually got them all, some via codes, like the ones that you could only find on the island, because we didn’t have a GBA or link cable back then. We never got Punch-Out!! or Soccer, though I think I did end up making a custom town and got a present that had Punch-Out!! via one of those special delivery codes.

In games like Paper Mario and Yoshi’s Story, near the end of the book, it would list all of the enemies of the game. Those were just so fun to look at. Also with Paper Mario, it listed every item combination that you could make via cooking, and I actually ended up making almost all of them, including an Ultra Jelly, which took an Ultra Shroom and Jelly can, two of the rarest items in the game, and combined them to make an item that restored 50 HP and 50 FP. I was perfectly happy with myself 😛

But no guide maker can ever top Versus Books Perfect Guides. Those were the absolute best player’s guides ever and I was so sad when I found out they don’t make them anymore.

But my all-time favorite is definitely Earthbound. The whole thing was written partly like a travel guide, showcasing each of the cities and sometimes having a fake newspaper article about something that you were going to have to fix upon reaching said town. The actual guide portion was really fun too because it was usually one huge map of the town/road/building with little markers that had tips of what to do. On the right side of those pages, it talked about the enemies you were going to have to face, along with a clay model of about half of them. I loved the clay models so much that it’s probably the reason I love pre-rendered graphics so much today. That and Clay Figther 63 1/3 of course 😛 But I really would sit down and just read th4 Earthbound guidebook, sometimes from cover to cover, whenever I went to my grandparents’ house. I probably read it twice as much as I ever actually played the game, considering I’ve never even gotten past Moonside 😛

I’m hoping that Player’s Guides make more of a return in the coming years. Games are finally getting super-hard again, as you can see with Donkey Kong Country Returns, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (well it has less save points than Radiant Dawn at least :P)

Project Cafe Idea: Using the 3DS as a controller?


http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_lobby/b8270/201633357/r201645364/?statusId=PostReplySuccess

think that Nintendo will indeed implement the 3DS as a limited controller. The only reason it couldn’t be a full controller is the lack of a second control stick, but we don’t even know the specifics about the controller; there could be no buttons at all or something for all we know.

But it would be VERY wise feature 3DS connectivity. Think of it; Controllers are going to be above $50, maybe even $60. Even when the economy recovers, not that many people are going to want to spend that much money on over 2 controllers. Being able to use a handheld that you already own would be extremely beneficial, and it could even drive sales up for people that are on the fence about buying the 3DS, but want to buy it for its controller capabilities.

Game 014- Street Fighter Alpha 3 Upper


Yes, this is another GBA port of a console fighting game. But this is actually different.

sfa1
sfa2
As you can see, the entire roster isn’t here, but this is still huge for GBA!
sfa2
sfa4
As you can see, the sprites aren’t reduced in size too much, just the level of the SNES Street Fighter Alpha 2 (which may be played through at a later date). The controls, lacking 2 buttons, remove the regular punch and kicks, only using the heavy and light attacks. That makes the gameplay much like the regular game.
sfa5
sfa6
sfa8
Thankfully, this banter is much greater than Guilty Gear X Advance’s.
sfa7
Yah, died.
sfa10
sfa9
Dude even on GBA I culd pull off a combo!
sfa11
sfa12
sfa13
sfa14
Hahaha get the refrence? Hahaha….ha.
sfa15
Same exact guy…
sfa16
sfa17
So overall, this game is pretty great, in GBA terms. But like Guilty Gear, there’s a PSP version that is better than arcade perfect. But without that, this is the best Street Fighter Alpha game on any Nintendo system.

Game of the Decade Awards


What you do is PM, email, or reply on her to me with your three (or less) favorite games since 2000, and title it “Decade Awards” or something similar. If you want, there are also some more categories that you can pick 2 from:
