It's very close between Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and Hearthstone. I want to pick the former but I think it might be the later. I dunno. I've fallen off Hearthstone recently after SSB4 started leaking a few weeks ago. SSB4 I'm going to super enjoy I think but it won't be Game of the Year because, unlike DKC Tropical Freeze, it doesn't have Dixie Kong in it.

I love how you used an image with the Banjo Skin in it. Very apt.

@hailinel: You can probably check the history to see who added that. It was me. Probably shouldn't have done that but I would really like to use Banjo-Kazooie logic to infer the names of Duck and Hunt. They're billed as Duck Hunt like Banjo-Kazooie were billed as Banjo-Kazooie. Therefore they're Duck and Hunt!

By the way we might consider a page for Duck.

If anyone has a spare code hook me up in a PM please. That'd be lovely.

Let's be fair here, Ridleys not the only fucker being screwed over. Neither Dixie or K Rool made the cut even though DKCR sold more than Skyward Sword.

I think the shooting could simply be another aspect of the move set and world. You'd have moves that involve the imaginary light gun player shooting at things in Hunt's line of sight. You'd also have just a world full of NES light gun game cliches for flavor.

So Duck Hunt is pretty incredible in Smash 4. It's inspired. The great thing is it's not like "Duck Hunt Dog" like many speculated but is a brand new never before seen duo called Duck Hunt. Presumably their first names are Duck and Hunt. They're great together! They attack together, Duck flies and pokes out with her beak, and Hunt has a bunch of gun related moves as well as appropriate melee stuff. Watching it I sort of get chills. If Rare was not with Microsoft this is what Banjo-Kazooie would've been like in Smash Brothers.

Anyway let's talk revival. I would love love love a good old fashioned old school retro 3D platformer. I just want it to be Hunt, Duck and colorful worlds/characters inspired by light gun of old games that would never see the light of day again otherwise outside of a Warioware Minigame in the early 00s. That'd be great. Also I want it to involve ducking, no pun intended, and doing moves from a duck. Basically I just want bootleg Banjo-Kazooie.

I don't want it to any way shape or form resemble a lightgun game because those are passe and even on the Wii they didn't get much of a foothold despite them being much more feasible due to the Wiimote. It needs to be like Kid Icarus, just a clean break from the old stuff. 3D instead of 2D, etc etc.

Man I'd love a Banjo-Kazooie type game starring those 2. Duck Hunt Adventures or something. Look at the 6th skin up there. Sakurai knows what he's done. Hopefully Nintendo picks up on that and makes it real.

I'm sad there's no Dixie or K. Rool. I mean come on, DKCR sells 6 million, more than Skyward Sword, and DK is still at 2 reps. Unbelievable. Fire Emblem and Kid Icarus have more than a franchise that outsells Zelda. Ridiculous. Well there's now rumors there'll be characters only unlockable on Wii U that you transfer back. Rumor is Dixie will be one of those characters. There's also DLC. K Rool would be a natural fit for DLC since he's the most wanted not-added character in Japan and like the 2nd most wanted in America behind Ridley. Oh, also no DK Assist Trophies. Shafted again!

Currently the thing that's interesting folk who are keeping their hopes up for the future is that no one has seen a Dixie, K. Rool, Ridley or Mewtwo trophy yet.

Still... I gotta admit I can't find fault with the choices. I think I like all the newcomers to some degree unlike last time where ROB was thoroughly unwelcome. They're fine choices with inspired and interesting kits. I especially like how Duck Hunt is a combo team of a dog and a duck. The moveset appears to ape Banjo-Kazooie a whole lot and there's even a color that's spot on. Fantastic.

A leak shortly after the first text leak of BJ and Duck Hunt named BJ, Duck Hunt, Dixie, Ridley, Mewtwo and Chorus. Really hoping that leak was right. Or atleast that Dixie is in.

Wow. That's actually a pretty great purchase. I dunno about the price but that game has legs and would be worth its weight in gold going forward. I'm curious what plans they'll have for it. Minecraft 2 on Xbox One? Perhaps any Gold Member will be able to do a proper server on Xbox One with all the fancy stuff you get on PC Servers.
