Got the new Smash Bros game for Christmas. Haven't played any of those games since Brawl. Was excited to watch this one's opening cinematic, and then my heart sank as the music started playing:

 

[hide]

[/hide]

 

Dude what the [bleep]?! This music sucks! It sounds like the soundtrack for a children's anime about love and friendship-- this is supposed to be a fighting game! Ugh I'm so disappointed.

Heck you, that theme kicks ass and I live for it.

 

You better believe I'll fight you about this. SW-0907-4301-7611

I wouldn't mind it if it didn't sound so out of place. I'm getting ready to play this fighting game with my friend-- we've had a couple of beers, we're talking shit, and we're getting ready to duke it out... and then suddenly this sappy love song starts playing? Seriously? Whose idea was that?

It's not a love song, it's referencing the events of world of light >.>

 

At most you could say it's about friendship, but in like a very battle-brothers sort of way.

Then they should've arranged the instrumentation accordingly-- Brawl had similar lyrics but at least they were in Latin so you couldn't understand them and they used a choir instead of a soloist so it sounded more epic and war-like. Instead they chose to hire a female soprano soloist, singing in English about friendship. Inappropriate choice for a fighting game

Headed for a daytrip to Visegrad. Slept in and when we got there, the castle was already closed. Oh well. Had some beers and here we are.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Disagree entirely. A song about fighting alongside your friends is 100% appropriate for the tone they're going for in Smash Bros.

I'm not fighting alongside my friends though. I'm either playing alone in the campaign mode because they removed campaign co-op AFAIK, or I'm playing against my friends 1v1 on the couch

I think the argument comes down to:

 

Tesset - The lyrics fit with the theme well. They follow the story and keep with smash events.

 

Muggi - I want to feel pumped up by the music, not lulled. Song itself isn't bad, but it doesn't make me feel like I'm preparing to smash my opponents.

Wait. Really? I wouldn't have guessed that.

The title themes and menu themes have gotten progressively worse since Melee (Brawl isn't bad, just not as good). The fact that you have to play the 15 hour long story mode to get the Melee menu music is a real PITA.

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Laptop decided to give in on me few days ago. Thing the graphics card got [bleep]ed or something. Ended up buying an Acer Nitro 5. Seems like a pretty sweet deal. Gtx 1050 Ti, 8gb Ram, 256gb SSD, i5-8300. Pretty happy with it. Want to get an extra 2TB external to save games on and a new headset too.

Anyone else find that laptop chargers break easily? Hoping my next one has a USB-C plugin so I don't have to find the specific one that I want everytime.

I don't think i've ever really had one break on me. My problem is usually forgetting to pack them (or the right one) when i go somewhere, so i end up having to buy a new one. I have like 5 or 6 at home that have been used no more than a week.

The original one my laptop came with and two subsequent replacement ones have all broken. The original one had issues with the cord fraying internally while the replacement ones just kept on having broken heads (the piece that plugs into the laptop). Drives me mad.

Laptop chargers definitely have issues. Even just letting it sit here and unplugging it from the wall end, the connection tends to become loose. Luckily, there's often a $20 solution of just buying one off the bay of e so it's not too much of a big deal if they start to break.

My decade-old laptop's charger still works. Better than both the battery and the hinge, honestly.

I spent £130 ($165) on a PAL version of Frogger Beyond for the gamecube.

 

Collecting is one hell of a drug. I have a fairly small collection of PAL GC games but this is the first of about 5 chase games I wanted to get.

 

 

N.B. Before you Americans go into ebay and say hurrdurr this game is only $20 I need to point out that the EU versions (specifically UKV) versions of this particular Gamecube game are actually quite rare.

Screw the PAL/NTSC divide.
