If I Had To Call It Something…

TimRay and I really clicked on this idea. Ray proposed it the other day while doing the podcast and it was as if he had read my mind because I had the same exact idea myself. I really had a hard time taking the Iwata Asks interview seriously because everything I’ve seen of Sakurai has been on the Smash Bros. Dojo where he says the most ridiculous things. And in case you’re wondering, yes, all of Sakurai’s lines in the comic are real things he said in the Smash Bros. Dojo posts.

    Ha ha, great comic.

    The dojo posts were always so random I had always assumed that he didn’t speak english and the translator had learned from a textbook from the 1920′s.

  2. sea says:

    @Andrew: You realise that the guy who writes the English blog posts is the same guy who did much of the writing for the English version of Super Paper Mario, right? I doubt it’s a direct translation, and he’s probably just putting the stuff in his own style.

    Still, good comic, even though it took me a while to realise all the lines were from Dojo posts.

  3. Ransom says:

    Iwata: Now let’s hope that nobody gets their hands on the game early.

    ???: Nya ha ha!

    Iwata: He’s getting away with the game!

    Sakurai: This guy needs to calm down.

    Iwata: He’s coming your way, Sakurai-kun. Stop him!

    Sakurai: Given the proliferation of the Internet these days, the existence of hidden characters is going to get exposed anyway.

    (laughs)

    @sea: Why do you think Super Paper Mario had so much crazy text in it? It was like somebody found a new toy and that toy was the English language.

    Good comic…….I neeeeed this game nooooooow!!! *crawls into fetal position* *sticks thumb in mouth* T_T Brawl, why do you elude me so T_T ………..

  6. Troy says:

    Funny stuff, and so close to the truth it hurts.

  7. jaytoothetee says:

    Even when the Smash Bros. Dojo update is REALLY bad, Sakurai’s hilarious comments make it worthwhile reading. Loving this comic.

  8. Andrew says:

    And now the smash dojo is going to start posting spoilers like hidden characters.

  9. Tustin says:

    Apparently, lack of Brawl causes regressive tendencies… :)

    Nice comic today guys. I like it! Only after the “Hot Hot HOTT” line did it click that he was saying things from the dojo. Did he really say the ‘nice and peaceful’ line somewhere?

  10. Another Andrew says:

    Bah! Another Smas Bros. related comic. I’d probably find it funny if I was interested in the game.

  11. Tim says:

    Yeah, Another Andrew, we know. We go a little overboard with those Smash comics, but you don’t understand just how obsessed Ray is with that game!

  12. The Original Andrew says:

    I think you should start the “comic talk” section of the podcast with a little kid quoting the first comment on comic #1 “Wow, This Comic Strip looks like it has some potential.”

  13. Tustin says:

    Hey, you guys forgot to update the top banner! Unless those bullet holes was what Iwata had in store for Sakurai if he said another thing from the dojo… :)

  14. Tim says:

    No, you’re right Tustin, we just haven’t thought of anything great yet to put there. Any ideas?

  15. Dj75728 says:

    No, you’re right Tustin, we just haven’t thought of anything great yet to put there. Any ideas?

    Why don’t ya’ll put those “atom” lines around the 2p start logo like it is on the smash ball? or put lines through the logo to look like the smash logo(they’re both basically a circle). Or just do both :mrgreen: .

  16. Rioluke says:

    Three words for the comic
    1. ?
    2. ??
    3. ???

  17. Andrew Again says:

    Three word answer
    1. Smash
    2. Bros.
    3. Dojo

    And hey, what does it take to win a free copy of Jessica and the Silver Eclipse?

  18. Ray says:

    And hey, what does it take to win a free copy of Jessica and the Silver Eclipse?

    That’s a good question. I’ll talk with Tim about that.

  19. Andrew says:

    The new top banner looks good, even if it is one of the most annoying smash bros items around.

  20. Rioluke says:

    I just listened to the podcast the other night and now I feel like an idiot.
    This seems to happen whenever I post on any site.
    I’m always misunderstood
    That means, no I do not dislike MLK and I do not think that you guys dislike MLK.
    To confirm what I meant is that you guys love to talk about brawl. I mean you said confirmed or some variation of it at least 50 times in your last podcast. I thought you would get it ,but I was wrong.

  21. Tim says:

    Haha, it’s cool Rioluke, Ray straightened that out. It’s just that the way you wrote it made it seem like you were saying something about MLK. If you had said, “Knowing you guys, it’s probably the former”, that would have made more sense.

    I think Ray understood what you were saying because he is the Brawl freak around here, I’m just a casual fan.

  22. Rioluke says:

    Thats funny because I wanted to say “the former” but I could only remember latter. And I didn’t want to say “the first one” so I just wrote “the latter” thinking you guys would get it. By the way I love your avatar. Its from that one comic back when you used to be good…

  23. Rioluke says:

    How do I get an avatar like that to show up? Do I have to use a macro or something?

  24. Andrew Again says:

    You have to go to gravatar.com and register there, then use the email address you used there when you post here.

  25. Tustin says:

    What’s wrong? Ray doesn’t want to make something new up, so you use a previous header image? I recognize that from the Brawl comic a while back.

    And before you say it, no, I didn’t offer any suggestions because I haven’t checked back here all weekend. I would have suggested something that matches the white theme of the Ask Iowata, like changing the button to a white and blue theme thing. I actually like Dj75728′s idea about making the 2pstart logo into a modified version of the Smash Bros symbol (like putting those crossed lines in and the 2p up on the bigger side of the circle). Anyhow, now I’m ranting. :)

  26. Dj75728 says:

    @Tustin: Thanks for the props, I thought it was a good idea :mrgreen:

  27. Rioluke says:

    You have to go to gravatar.com and register there, then use the email address you used there when you post here.

    Thanks Andrew, how do you like it? did it work?

  28. Tim says:

    Rioluke,
    It seems you need to write your email address with a lowercase ‘r’. Nice picture!

  29. Rioluke says:

    Rioluke,It seems you need to write your email address with a lowercase ‘r’. Nice picture!

    Thanks tim

  30. Xeno says:

    I made it almost the whole way through the comic before I understood what was going on. Nice job!

  31. Rioluke says:

    I get it now after reading it three times, but I liked how he was kinda gimmicky in the words that he chose. Although he sort of seemed like he was trying to cover something up by distracting you with wierdness.

  32. dj75728 says:

    are “andrew” and “andrew again” two different people? or….two people inside of one person who isn’t even named andrew!? *insert your choice of dramatic music here*

  33. Andrew A Third Time says:

    The world may never know.

  34. Andrew says:

    Wait… is dj75728′s avatar a smash bros spoiler?

  35. Dj75728 says:

    Wait… is dj75728’s avatar a smash bros spoiler?

    Shutup!!! Shhhhh :mrgreen: . And besides, I don’t think anyone would really get it unless they already know. and he looks cool so leave me be. But if Ray/Tim wants me to change then SO BE IT! :mrgreen:

  36. Andrew says:

    Yeah, which is why I am spoiling Black Doom as a playable character, just like you spoiled the Borg as a playable character

  37. @Andrew: NOOOOO!!!! WHY WOULD YOU SPOIL IT FOR EVERYBODY!!!!!!!! O_o

  38. Andrew says:

    No, it’s a secret to everybody.

  39. X-uDuex says:

    I honestly don’t remeber any of those things he said, and I read every post tell the “Future Updates” one.
