Hello, Year Two! The second season is off to a whirling start with an On Topic that sees Lister and Jonathan “Out of Smash” for the first time. Here, they discuss their Pokemon memories – of games, anime, merchandise, and more. Join us for this trip down memory road. Featuring, for the first time, visual presentation and a smashing jingle!
Well, it’s only been five months since I’d last posted a “weekly” roundup. That’s pretty on brand at this point, right?
In these times of COVID-19, time as a concept seems as nebulous as it does immemorial. Seriously, some days I wake up and still wonder if it’s June. Yet, the clock does still keep ticking in the same 12-rung, twice-a-day cycle that it always has. There have still been some landmark moments here and there that recall that place some semblance of rigidity back into the monthly calendar. A lot of it, in 2020 fashion, hasn’t been good. In an at-home dosage of bad news, my mini-dachshund of 14 years, Twinkie, passed away in June.
Wrapping up the first year of Super Cast Bros. is Zantok and Jonno’s Tournament of Champions. Herein, every previous Smash or Dash winner clashes head-on! Who will rise as their champion of champions? Character lineup: Octoling, Mach Rider, Ganon, Marshal, Zero, Toad, Ashley, Edelgard, Black Shadow, Decidueye, Shantae, Scorpion, Takamaru, Midna, Savvy Stylist, and Spider-Man!
Zantok & Jonno wrap up their first season’s final Smashtopia episode with a presentation of not one, but two mystery character movesets! One is an offbeat enemy from a retro franchise, the other a third-party horror. Who are they, and do the two pals surprise one another with their presentations?
Jonno and Zantok look back on their very own origin story in the now-defunct web forum ‘Super Smash Bros. Mercurious’, where the two first met.
Zantok and Jonno take on two unsuspecting match-ups in their latest in the ‘Smash or Dash’ series. First, it’s a couple of obscure first-party picks who go at it with F-Type and Savvy Stylist; then, it’s a main event featuring two massively popular “fourth-party” choices in Dragon Ball Z’s Goku vs. Spider-Man!
Jonno and Zantok are once again joined by their old friend Jake to partake in the creation of a moveset for Kirby’s own Adeleine – featuring Ribbon!
With the introduction of Min Min as DLC for Ultimate, we now know with 100% certainty that having a spirit in the base game does not hinder your chances at becoming playable. Jonno and Zantok discuss possibilities for future DLC now that this rule has been broken.
It’s an Assist Trophy Extravaganza of a different kind when Jonno and Zantok return to the Smash or Dash table to discuss the merits of two separate match-ups, all between characters that have already been represented as assist trophies. Takamaru & Saki and Midna & Krystal duke it out!
Jonno and Zantok are joined by the latter’s Select Start Gaming co-host, Wayofftrail, to craft a moveset for fan-favorite assassin, Ezio Auditore.
