My Most Wanted For Smash Bros Switch

e3 is less than a week away and I couldn’t be more excited, but mostly I am excited for Tuesdays Nintendo online video, where there is sure to be lots of exciting news, none more so than (hopefully) a good deal of information on the new smash bros game.

Many people still seem doubtful that this is a new game, but rather a port of the Wii U/3DS versions, which would be a huge let down after all the hype, so I seriously doubt it is. Plus when they initially announced it, they seemed to go out of their way to title the trailer “Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros” instead of Super Smash Bros for Nintendo switch, which were how the Wii U and 3DS games were titled.

So anyway, there are thousands of characters people want to see appear in these games each time one comes out. Brawl gave me several characters I wanted added (Toon Link, Wolf, Sonic). After that game, anything seemed possible, especially since they added so many newcomers (though I think Little Mac was the only one added that I really wanted in 4…oh and Mega Man…and Shulk…k that one delivered too).

So here are some characters I would love to see…and no…Ridley and King K. Rool are not going to be on this list. I am not opposed to literally any character becoming playable, and honestly I get excited for any newcomer, even if I don’t know who they are, but I would be a tad more excited if these upcoming characters appear.

First and foremost, I would love to see every character that has been cut back in it, which means Snake, Wolf and especially the Ice Climbers, who were only cut because of the limitations of the 3DS. The only ones that don’t need to come back are Young Link, Toon Link is a perfect replacement and Pichu…cuz why?

And now onto the newcomers I would love to see.

Paper Mario (Paper Mario series obviously)

paper_mario_wii

I know, another Mario character, but he would just be so cool. With a ton of partners and sweet special moves to pull from, he could be a whole lot of fun.

 

 

 

 

Dark Samus (Metroid Prime series)

DarkSamus

Aside from looking cool, Dark Samus has an impressive array of powers and abilities, some of them demonstrated as an assist trophy in the last game. Now make it fully playable!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon Belmont (Castlevania series)

Simon_Belmont_-_01

 

This has been a third party character I’ve wanted for a while. His legacy on NES, his chain and special weapons all make him a great candidate for smash.

 

 

 

 

 

Sora (Kingdom Hearts series)

Sora_KHIII

I love Kingdom Hearts, so to see the main character in one of my favorite games of all time would be magical. Again, he has an enormous move set to pull from to make him a worthy adversary against Nintendo’s finest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Luigi (Luigi’s Mansion)

luigi-s-mansion-luigis-mansion-32298744-560-576

Give Luigi a moveset based off his Mansion games. There is no need to have him a partial Mario clone anymore, though I was thrilled his final smash in 4 used the poltergust.

 

 

 

 

 

Sonic and Tails (Sonic series…duh)

sonic and tails

Instead of just Sonic, let these two be a team like the Ice Climbers, since in the Genesis games, they functioned in the exact way the Ice Climbers do now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Viewtiful Joe (game with the same name)

Viewtiful_Joe

He’s awesome and has a nice, crazy moveset that would fit right in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wonder Red (Wonderful 101)

Wonder-Red

He is from the team that made Viewtiful Joe, so I guess I would rather see Red, for he is actually a Nintendo character. Maybe give him a combination of all the other wonder’s power which would give him a truly awesome moveset.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dixie Kong (Donkey Kong Country Series)

dixie kong

 

Either as a team with Diddy or stand alone character, I want her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zero (Mega Man X series…not the Zero series look)

zero

I would love to have X, Mega Man and Zero all be in it, but hey, Zero would be a cool addition if I had to choose one, after Mega Man, that is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And those are just some of my more hopefuls that came to mind right off the bat. Paper Mario is my most wanted for sure, ever since leading up to Brawl. Of course there are dozens more I would love to see in it too.

But I will not be disappointed with who they add, as long as there are very little cuts and plenty of additions, I will be thrilled.

How Well Do You Take Care Of Your Games?

I am genuinely curious about the care people show to their games, and this is because when I buy used games on sites such as ebay, the amount of ware and tare on these games has generally been fairly varied. A lot of the times I get the games in splendid condition, maybe a scratch or two on the disk, a cracked case, you know, cosmetic stuff that is bound to happen, but also pay a bit extra for them to be in that condition.

But then half the stuff I look at and avoid buying unless there is no alternative look like these games have been through a war or two, plus a few trips through the washing machine.

Like what in the blazes are people doing with these games? The cover art inside the case is trashed. Why is it even out of the case? The booklets are soggy or missing. What are you doing with them? Do people really take them out and use them so much that they are torn to shreds and/or never return them and  become lost. Do people use them for toilet paper?

Some game discs are so scratched it appears that they never reenter their case after being taken out the first time. And this I have personally witnessed. Some of my friends will just pop the game out, throw it off to the side and then put another one in. They repeat this process until there are a dozen or more games thrown about the living room, and then they wonder why they can’t find a game or why it doesn’t work.

And for old cartridge games, the cover labels are practically dissolved down to nothing. How does this happen? I was being serious when I said they looked like they went through a washing machine. It is the only thing I can think of to make some of these games like this.

img_0322.jpgHere is a game I bought about a year ago on ebay. What happened to it?  How did it get so messed up? I had to buy this for there was no other choice, and I was honestly, extremely surprised that the game even worked. And this is in fairly good shape compared to some that I have seen!

Here’s what a well taken care of cartridge looks like…

 

Like, I just have to know what people are doing with these games.

I personally take wonderful care of my games. 99% of them I could wrap in plastic and sell them as brand new. And that other 1% could come pretty close as well. The only signs of use are the old cartridge SNES games mainly, because as they age they become discolored from the original gray. And this isn’t even a sign of use, so much as just a sign of being old.

I keep everything in a case at all times, and keep them neat and organized so nothing happens to them.

So I would just like to hear how you treat your games. Are they in good shape? If not, how did they became like some of the monstrosities I have seen?
