Super Freak

TimPersonally, I think the Official Smash Bros. blog is brilliant. When you’ve got millions of Nintendo fanboys salivating over any scrap of information about Super Smash Bros. Brawl, why not take advantage and give them that information bit by bit over a 6 month period? So far, the information found there has been fairly unsubstantial, but that’s of course on purpose to keep you coming back for more. Nintendo is raising up a generation of addicts waiting for their next fix. Brilliant marketing for what will surely be a brilliant game. As a side note, Ray really does look for shoes to buy that look like Sonic’s shoes. If anyone would like to help me get Ray into some sort of program to help him with his problem, let me know (maybe Soniholics Anonymous?).

RayTim, those programs have never worked for me.

For having a comic about how everything I fantasize about is showing up on the site, I found it pretty ironic that today’s update was an explanation on how to recover if you’re knocked away from the stage. Can’t say that’s what I was hoping for. What am I hoping for? The following playable characters: Sonic, Viewtiful Joe, Mega Man, Captain Olimar, Tom Nook, and Mii. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a game in quite a while. Here’s hoping…

    Keep the comics coming. You doing great! 🙂

    Yeah, I love the Brawl site. I wake up at 5 o’clock every weekday just to see information thats not even going to be amazing but still interesting.

  2. Ajvizz says:

    Sorry for making another post but….I just had to comment Roy’s post. I too wish for Sonic, Mega Man, Captain Olimar, and Viewtiful Joe. Though Miis and Tom Nook would probably be more of a distraction or something like that..I don’t actually see them fighting. Nintendo is creative so I don’t worry.

    Whoo first page , nice ! Great comic, keep up the good work. I’m wondering when , you will make a joke from sc2. 🙂

  4. Tim says:

    John,
    Actually we were going to make a joke about sc2, but we’re holding onto it for now. You’ll see it eventually!

    lol, “Look at your shoes.” Brilliant! Whats funny is that i never saw it coming, i was expecting another “update wish or something!” Hopefully, one day, this site will be a joke on Family Guy.

  7. Jonic says:

    As a side note, Ray really does look for shoes to buy that look like Sonic’s shoes.

    Man I would love some shoes like Sonic’s… Ray: If you hear from anyone about where we could get some then let me know 😉

  8. Lava says:

    Nice! Sonic DOES have some pretty sweet shoes. I’ve actually thought that to myself before. …and you should look at my comments on your previous comic. They relate more to this one 🙂

    Well, guess I’ll barf out my picks… Other then the obvious third party characters, (Sonic, Megaman) I wouldn’t mind seeing some EW Jim love (or any other American character worth mentioning. (Pitfall Harry? Hard to think of any.)

    For first party it would have to be: (mostly trying to pick halfway possibles in no particular order)

    —Captain Olimar (With a few pickmin at his side acting as his punces/kicks. Also, think about the up B coolness of pikmin linking together to form a chain ledge grab. Then Olimar can climb up them.)

    —Bulbasaur (Classic man. Four legged fighter!? Crazy!)

    —CelLink (Instead of Young Link Good amount of differentiation from Link, and just awesome graphical style… a solid addtion to the game.)

    —Chibi-Robo (Blossoming new franchise, but regardless, it would just be cool to see a tiny silver character. He’s got the chibi-copter for up B returns, and then all of is weird costumes for dif colors.)

    Anyone else is just extra joy…

    Whatchya think?

  9. Lava says:

    Did I say previous comic? I meant “Over the Top.”

  10. BTW, the name is spelled “CHRONOS”. I want him in the game too. I doubt there will be a four legged character, because they’ve never done that before. If I were to pick a perfect character, it would be…Hammer Bros. It alredy has a weapon, could use a double jump like Amy in sonic advance, and you could couple two together like ice climbers. In fact, I wouldn’t mind them being an ice climbers clone.

  11. Lava says:

    ^^”…because they’ve never done that before.”

    What kind of reasoning is that? That’s exactly why they should do it. They’re most likely doing countless things that they haven’t done before. Anyway, I don’t want to sound like a jerk, so I won’t be posting anymore about that.

  12. Rae says:

    Isaac or Felix from Golden Sun would be amazing. If they put Tingle from Zelda in, however, I might have to chuck a Wiimote at the TV.

    I also think Phoenix Wright would make an amusing SSBB character. He could stun people with his “Objection!” attack and chuck random pieces of evidence at them.

  13. Dostovel says:

    Jaja, funny Comic 🙂
    And nice fight you guys have there 😀
    But i agree, they’re outdoing themselfes these time around.
    And i hated the Heroes finale 🙁
    It was so stupid. They PUNCHED each other!!! dammit you guys have powers, cant you beat each other up with Adoken and stuffs. Plus… Peter…. you can fly men, go and blow by your own. Sorry for the ones that did enjoy the ending.

  14. RookieJr says:

    !!!! Brainwave!!!!
    That “playable Mii” idea got me thinking, and i am now willing to bet cash monies that the new fighting polygon/wire frame team type match is gonna be a bunch of Miis. that would be pretty awesome.

  15. Copes says:

    Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle ftw.

    I feel like if they put another starfox char its gonna be krystal.

    And to agree with everyone else, Olimar chucking pikmin around would be epic.

    Oh and maybe midna?

  16. Brian says:

    @ RookieJr
    Brilliant! Great…. now I’ll be disapointed if that doesn’t happen

  17. Dawnveil says:

    I believe the Sonic shoes are sold by “Soaps”. It was a trend thing about the time sonic adventure came out on the Dreamcast.
    http://www.soapshoes.com
    is where I found it for this post.
    They were ‘hot’ because they were the shoes that let you grind.

    I’d love to see scenarios where the pokemon could evolve, even if it’s just temporary (maybe digimon would be more appropriate then). But just imagine the possibilities 😀

  19. 1337roy says:

    My Brawl hopefuls:

    Bomberman- what can i say he is the coolest character ever. He can make bombs out of thin air!!!!

    Banjo Kazooie (idk spelling roflmao)- Come on he has a bird in his backpack thats amazing and he is a bear whats not to love about him

  20. Anonymous says:

    Sonic IS a playable character in Brawl. At least that is what I have been told from a source.

  21. dan says:

    lol i luv heroes and smash bros and i cant wait for both. (heroes season 2 and smash bros brawl)

  22. T045T says:

    The Soapshoes tip was right, and I happen to know that the Scorchers supposedly were the shoes Sonic himself wore in SA2.
    However, there only was a limited edition that actually had the same colors as Sonics, plus they had cemented-on grind-plates (rather than replaceable ones), making them pretty freaking rare by now.
    I believe one person on the Forums of the above website has them, and they get him nearly as many bragging rights as a pair of A-Sides (which were never released, every pair that exists is a prototype).
    Hope that helps (and doesn’t demotivate you too much ;D) !

  23. Tristan says:

    ok im going through the archives, and im sure you already know this by now Vadoff, but from your list, the following are playable characters:

    Sonic
    Wolf
    Diddy Kong
    King Dedede
    Olimar
    Lucas

    and a large amount of the others made it as trophies and/or stickers.
