In the latest Smash or Dash, Jonathan and Lister examine the viability of two groups of characters. F-Zero villain Black Shadow is pitted against Pikmin 3’s Alph, and grass Pokemon Serperior, Decidueye, and Rillaboom duke it out in a hypothetical bout that would grant them access to Super Smash Bros.
Here we are, folks! Without further ado, we’re coming in hot with another “weekly” roundup. This one is only 8 weeks behind, which means that somewhere along the way, progress is being made (considering that the last before our January roundup was in November). Should I start making these into a more manageable monthly roundup format? Probably. For now, though, let’s stubbornly grip onto this weekly dream and maybe it’ll come true.
It’s an assist trophy extravaganza! In this Smashtopia, Jonathan Frahm (Jonno) and Lister Potter III (Zantok) set their sights on a grand roundup of assist trophy ideas ranging from Bub & Bob to Drago from Ring Fit Adventure and beyond.
Jonathan Frahm (Jonno) and Lister Potter III (Zantok) look ahead to Fighter Pass 2. Who might appear in the pass? How will Nintendo approach it as opposed to the first? The boys draft their own fantasy passes to round things out.
Jonathan Frahm (Jonno) and Lister Potter III (Zantok) are joined by their friend Kelly (Kellyjelly) to decide who they’ll usher into Smash between Kamek and Ashley of Yoshi and Wario fame, and the three lords of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. They also take some time to react to the inclusion of Byleth as the final character of Fighter Pass 1.
Jonathan Frahm (Jonno) and Lister Potter III (Zantok) hit the Smashtopia workshop for the first time in the new year to talk about how main protagonists of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Rex & Pyra/Mythra, could work as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Super Cast Bros. is a podcast series established by two super fans of the Super Smash Bros. franchise.
Aptly titled the ‘Redemption Roundup’, our last Weekly Roundup blog promptly vowed to “resume our curation of actually weekly [sic] Weekly Roundups.” That was on November 30th.
Jonno (Jonathan Frahm) and Zantok (Lister Potter III) are joined by pop-rock artist and big-time Smash fan Jamie Alimorad to decide on two separate Smash or Dash match-ups: Toad vs. Captain Toad and Shadow vs. Zero. They also talk with Jamie about his new album, ‘This is Tomorrow Calling’ and inspiring lead single “Brighter Days”, as well as his experiences meeting Charles Martinet and Reggie Fils-Aime.
Jonathan Frahm (Jonno) and Lister Potter III (Zantok) are rejoined by their good, old friend Trevor (Turbotaxer) to collaborate on a moveset for the renowned Mother/EarthBound villain, Porky Minch.
Well, pals, it’s only been twelve weeks since our last Weekly Roundup. Apologies are in order, especially since, as this website continues to flourish, I wouldn’t want to miss even dream of missing a single roundup. Compacting a lengthy series of whiffed excuses into a something singular, I can only express that a routine is difficult to adhere to when you’re first starting out. No matter the weather or where I’m at in life following this point henceforth, I, Jonathan Frahm, vow to update my website on a consistent basis. We shall begin with actually weekly Weekly Roundups.
