You're really not good at reading. As I said, the different genres are different series. Mario Party, Paper Mario, New and original Super Mario Bros, Super Smash Bros, Mario & Luigi, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Kart, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, WarioWare, and the 3D Mario games are all seperate series because they're separate genres. Besides Paper Mario and Smash Bros, all the Mario characters in all the Mario games are from the same universe. The different 3D Mario games have some different mechanics, but the gameplay and control setup from Mario 64 are still the baseline that they all build off of. The Zelda series has had way more diversity in controls and mechanics, but, besides a few spin-offs and third party games, they're all considered part of one series.

They are more accurately not part of the same series. They are part of the Mario franchise. They use 64 as a base, but they aren't direct sequels which make them spiritual successors. Same universe, but not the same series.
#217 - anachronism (07/03/2016) [-]
A spiritual successor CAN NOT use anything taken from the original game. As in a spiritual successor to a Mario game could not have Mario in it. It can not have Toads or Koopas or Super Mushrooms. It can not have the pipes or music or fictional locations from the original game. The phrase you are looking for is indirect sequel. Galaxy 2 is to Galaxy, what Majora's Mask is to Ocarina of Time. Galaxy is to Sunshine what Windwaker is to Majora's Mask.

you've also gotta remember that the people who use pikes rarely do so one on one

Which is probably due to that flaw. What the hell else would they use it for? I can't imagine it being more practical in non combat situations than the regular saber. I can possibly imagine it as a ceremonial ornament, but nothing else.

"The long handle of the weapon was made of phrik alloy, which allowed it to resist lightsabers.[1] At the end of the handle was a lightsaber blade that was shorter and thicker than a normal one.[4] "

Fair enough, but it seems to say it as if ever single pike was made of it. I still question the validity of that statement, but I'll give you that.

So assuming that most of them are made of lightsaber resistant materials, that doesn't really make it that much less of a flaw. On that same page it says the same thing I said initially. Once they get around the blade, there is practically no defense.

"Much like the double-bladed lightsaber, however, the weapon's length was also something of a hindrance, as it did not transition well into defending, and left the wielder extremely vulnerable if an opponent managed to close in. In addition to this, the pike required a considerable amount of open space to wield effectively. As such, a user who found himself in close quarters would be at a distinct disadvantage."

double checking the references for light pikes, most of them actually are made out of phrik.

Citation needed. If it says they are most commonly made from it then it's a viable point, but I never heard that they were.

I guess we should only argue about swords and shields when they're made from balsa wood then.

#43 - wertologist (07/03/2016) [-]
Except most shields aren't made out of balsa wood. Yes I know it was a joke, but my point still stands. If you compared a Spartan shield vs some African tribal shield, you wouldn't change the material of what they were most commonly made of. The Spartans shield was brass and some other metals while the tribal shields usually were wood. If you were weighing the pros and cons of the tribal shield, you wouldn't say the shield would be made of iron or steel when it's most commonly made of wood. That would be trying to add unrealistic variables to try to validate your defense and that would also be retarded.

To reiterate, the average saber is NOT made of materials that can block a lightsaber so using it as a counter point is an unrealistic variable.

I don't believe I've ever become touchy over Femthor - I recognize what she is, and I am disappointed, but I won't let that displeasure define who I am as a person. Though, I don't understand where I came into the conversation!

Comicexplain's never gotten touchy on anything of that sort with me, but that's really just my word against his.
I only block people who've wound up earning it, such as people who practically stalk me around the site like ecomp or erotictentacle

He gets touchy about certain comic things. I've personally seen him rant about how much he hated fem-Thor(or it may have been another character. Maybe the penance stare with ghost rider). All I'm saying is I've heard from multiple people that you block often and then I get blocked then IP blocked. All signs point to you blocking, then IP blocking, then unblocking me.
