    Bruh. That you don't know much about Castlevania isn't an excuse to project about its relevancy. Plenty of gamers, not just Nintendo fans, and yet in this instance especially Nintendo fans, know of Castlevania. Games in the series have been rereleased thanks to digital platforms, new games as well, both the NES and SNES classic consoles have Castlevania titles, Netflix has an original animated series that has been popular. Point being, Castlevania is a known entity, a thing that people know. That it's not as ubiquitous as other known series is splitting hairs. Even if you wanted to argue that its inclusion in Smash is for nostalgia appeal is essentially making a case for why it fits. So much about Smash Bros. appeal is derived from people seeing icons they grew up with appearing in the same game together.

    Political Containment Thread

    The issue with cultural appropriation is that you're in no place to decide or come to the conclusion that the culture doesn't care. Having that one black friend who's okay with you saying the N-word doesn't mean every black person is fine with it. Just because your Native American friend doesn't mind drunk stereotypes or being the mascot of a football team doesn't mean all feel that way about it. If other people care about it, it's because they were likely informed by people in that culture that they do. I don't like this notion that people like being offended. Making that claim comes from a position of privilege because you have the luxury of not having to be defensive about something. I'm trans, I don't get to have the luxury of not giving a fuck. People _are_ out to get me and are repelled or aggressive towards me because of what I am. I'd love nothing more than to not be offended, but I have a massive target on my back. I have a right to be paranoid about how people treat me. I want shit to change so I can chill out and just be what I am without people being disgusted by it, but until then hell yeah I'm going to be offended by how people look at me.

    N4A Secret Santa 2018 (Sign-Ups Closed)

    It's that time of the year again. Hello and welcome to Ninfora's third annual Secret Santa event for 2018! I am your host, Santa Chrom, here again to make everyone's holiday season a great one. Whether you are a returning or new participant to this yearly community event, getting involved is as simple as ever! What is Secret Santa? In Secret Santa, members fill out a form to tell Santa Chrom a little about themselves (such as where they live, what they like, and more), and are later randomly assigned another participating member as their Tiny Tim, whom they must deliver a gift to by the holiday season, receiving the information that Tiny Tim shared with Santa Chrom. At that point, it becomes the Secret Santa's responsibility to pick out a gift for their Tiny Tim based on the given information. At the same time, the Secret Santa's own information is shared with yet another participating member, so they too will be a Tiny Tim to another Secret Santa. In short, in Secret Santa, you will give to one person, and you will receive from another person. It's called Secret Santa because you should remain anonymous until the day your Tiny Tim receives your gift! Rules All gifts should be valued at least roughly $10 USD (before tax/shipping). Pay what you want, but don't be cheap. Personally crafted gifts are waived from this rule. Delivering directly via Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and other storefronts is acceptable. Any way to wrap your gift and include a personal message should be taken if possible. Same goes with tracking, share that with Santa Chrom via PM. Digital items (games, movies, etc.) are acceptable to be gifted. You may specify on your form that you would prefer not to receive these kinds of items. This exchange is open to all members regardless of residence. Santa Chrom reserves the right to decline a registration if he believes an applicant may not be suitable to participate. Only sign up if you are serious and committed to participating. It makes organizing this a lot easier for Santa Chrom. If at any point you believe you will no longer be able to participate, please send a PM to Santa Chrom at the earliest opportunity. Received gifts must be shared in this topic with some kind of visual proof. Tiny Tims may choose to open/share their gifts received early if they want to. If a Tiny Tim has not received their gift by a certain date, Santa Chrom will personally deliver a gift to them as compensation. The dates to remember, take note! Nov 18 - Last day to sign up Nov 19 - Secret Santa-Tiny Tim sortings distributed Dec 19 - Gift delivering period begins (if international, consider shipping sooner) Jan 03 - Santa Chrom makes his rounds for empty-handed Tiny Tims, if any ➡Sign up here!⬅ (sign-ups closed as of November 19, 2018)

    Miiverse returns! Sort of...

    A group of people were able to create an archive of Miiverse through the use of Internet Archive and the Wayback Machine. All in all, it totals to approximately 17 terrabytes of data. https://archiverse.guide/ You can't actually post anything new, but with a bit of searching, you should be able to find all your old drawings even if you didn't opt to have Nintendo send them to you.

    No. When it's a worldwide ND like this one, it's hosted by someone in Japan (recently, Yoshiaki Koizumi) and dubbed in English. For reference, the last worldwide ND was March 8th, which I'm sure we all fondly remember as the first teaser for Smash Ultimate. If it's a system-/game-/region-specific ND it might be hosted by staff from Nintendo of America, but there's no reason to assume the recently delayed one would be. Regardless, I feel like you're still not quite understanding everyone's point regarding the delay: the ND is pre-recorded, and Nintendo chose to delay its release out of respect for the crisis parts of Japan are facing right now. Even if there was a separately hosted Reggie ND and a European ND, Nintendo would still most likely choose to delay the release. It's not a matter of the video's availability, or having someone available to host—it's Nintendo's choice in this situation. And sure, we'd all like to know when the ND will now air but it's not like Nintendo usually announces these things far in advance anyway. They'll probably announce the new date a couple days in advance like usual.

    4 whole tweets on the page. Hundreds of people complaining in replies to the tweet about the horrible responses. You scroll for like 5 minutes and you might find one actual insensitive tweet Wouldn't it make sense to just ignore them?

    Nintendo Direct: E3 2018

    I think we can all agree that the most important aspect of a new Smash Bros. game is a new series of comics from Awkward Zombie, such as this Ridley comic, more relevant than ever:

    This post might be coming out of the blue, and it's quite a bit personal. If you don't want to read it, just move on--it's in a spoiler because it's rather long. There's a few people who know details about this, but as a whole I want to keep this from my main group of friends (who are basically my labmates and students I took classes with). That group of friend is close knit, and generally if one of them knows, eventually all of them will know and I'm not sure how comfortable I am talking to them about it. So, not knowing where else to go, here I am. And, understand, there's a lot going on right now--so I'd appreciate it if you do respond you try to be respectful. Oh, and Tyranogre, since you'll probably read this, don't tell your parents or anything. Last thing I need right now is my parents finding out this is how I feel because that's just a complicated situation I'm not ready to deal with yet. edit: darn formatting errrors. gah. edit 2: cleaning up grammar errors.

    Whitney and Miltank /Thread Lol, but beating them is a lot of satisfaction. It's hard for me to think of enemies who have been a pain in the butt to me, as Nintendo games in general have gotten easier over the years. I'll remember the final boss in KH 1 and 2 took me a while to master.
