Ugh, about 90% of the matches I've had today were Final Destination. This is what I got sifting through about 1 hour and 20 minutes of online Smashing. Does anybody else have it this bad?
(Also, it seems that I had inadvertently missed Gurren Lagann on the Sci-Fi Channel when playing this, as my Sci-Fi Channel is 3 hours ahead. Oh well. I guess I'll pick it up on DVD, since it looks great, the Sci-Fi Channel version is oddly edited for time, and I can't watch the Sci-Fi Channel from university.)
9:16 PM Pacific Time
Here's a REAL taunt party--it doesn't suddenly shift in tone or result in some double-cross anywhere. It looks like I effectively added the sidestep into the taunt parties. Ike sure looks strange repeatedly sidestepping (but not quite as strange as some other characters, like Kirby or Squirtle). Also, if you turn the sound off at 1:21 to 1:31, it looks like Ike and Captain Falcon are singing a duet.
Well! It seems that I WASN'T put with three Final Destinationers after all. After about 6 stages on Final Destination, I was given this treat by someone who apparently dislikes Final Destination as much as I do. The Final Destinationers, whoever they were, couldn't keep up with WarioWare's dynamic environment and its reward to people who understand the stage. It looks like Sonic managed to dodge a Cook Kirby Final Smash by sidestepping, it seems. Still, this was such a huge change from the previous match, where the FD-ing Sonic got 8 KOs!
This wasn't a request, actually. I chose this stage because I myself had realized I haven't seen this stage in a long long time. I was caught in the worst spot when the stage flipped around; I would've been in a Sudden Death against Ike otherwise. (On a related note, Hang Castle from Sonic Heroes would've also been a great idea for a stage. It's a haunted gothic castle that occasionally flips upside-down, completely changing your path to get to the next portion.)
Mushroomy Kingdom (above ground)
This is another stage I haven't played in ages, and as you can see, poor Ike is caught in a scrolling stage, his biggest weakness online. It's also happening to play my favorite song in the above-ground side of the stage, "Ground Theme 2," an early-2000s style reggae remix of the now-famous Super Mario Bros. main theme. Unlike in Rumble Falls of the previous video, I was doing well as Wario this time. I guess it's because while he can't get very far off the ground (short of the Wario Waft), he has incredible horizontal speed for a heavyweight, both along the ground and in the air.
