KoopaTV Live Reacts: Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3 2018: Tennis, Octopath, and Smash!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Which is the weak LINK?

We got three games, here! Mario Tennis Aces doubles action, Octopath Traveler inaction, and some The Legend of Zelda-inspired Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Rawk is here and so am I, and so is our E3 2018 Schedule. With 25 or so reaction logs with very similar naming schemes because I'm an idiot, that schedule is mighty helpful.

[2:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Quick break.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Koopa vs. Blooper.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Ludwig Von Koopa Get your ass back here.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well Koopa vs. Chain Chomp more like.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: But they're showing off Blooper next.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: This court has slow ball speed.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Desert court.

[2:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Lots of deserts this E3.

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ahh

[2:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Worst quick break ever.

[2:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: Just thought about a fact

[2:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Drop shots are overpowered in the sand court.

[2:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Koopa Troopa apparently specialises in Drop Shots.

[2:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Tennis is pretty great for split-screen due to courts' depth-but-no-width nature.

[3:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I dunno wot that means; elaborate please.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently, your character's mass affects how much knockback you get.

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Unlike some things a court doesn't take up the whole screen.

[3:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Sides aren't too  gameplay relevant.

[3:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ah I got ya.

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I looove how Koopa Troopa moves.

Mario Tennis Aces Koopa Troopa Trick Shot shell movement
Koopa Troopa has incredibly slick movement with his shell.
Squirtle tries to do the same thing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

[3:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: yea

[3:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Koopa Troopa purposefully Zone Served the shot out of bounds because she knew Chain Chomp would try to return it.

[3:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (before it bounces)

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Smash should have it where you unlock characters early based on performance too.

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Motivator for online besides just points and nothing else.

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'm not motivated by points.

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cool video captures maybe.

[3:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Blooper's intro animation is amazing.

[3:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Blooper arrives on the court by Lakitu escorting him via a wet bucket.

[3:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Blooper's biggest curve is on his Top Spin; Boo's is on his Slice.

[3:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wonder if these nuances are explained in-game or we gotta figure it out.

[3:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Tsunami special shot.

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait not a Tsunami

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Water cyclone

[3:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: Whatever that's called

[3:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They want to showcase Daisy's victory animation.

[3:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Good hazard.

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Mirrors in Mirror Mansion absorb your ball, and then shoot it out of another mirror.

[3:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The mirrors maintain the ball's momentum.

[3:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Someone needs to Zone Shot into a mirror.

[3:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[3:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Daisy climbs stairs.

[3:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: For Zone Special.

[3:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The mirror sent the ball out of bounds.

[3:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Special Shot*

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHH  this is intense.

[3:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think they meant Zone Shot when they said you can serve Special Shots.

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I hope so.

[3:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: What if takes up the whole half hour?

[3:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I'm kidding we don't have lunch next."

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: What the hell?

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: They're just quitting?

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: lmao

[3:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're quitting the intense back-and-forth to play doubles.

[3:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: They were at a 6-6 tiebreaker.

[3:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: We've never seen a doubles.

[3:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Blooper and Peach vs. Boo and Toadette.

[3:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So what happens if one partner has a broken racket?

[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Who does Boo have a blue aura?

[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: I guess you just play alone.

[3:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: I hope that's how it works.

[3:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder the boundaries that are normally "out" for singles are in-play for doubles.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If you both try to Zone Speed at the same time it cancels out.

[3:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Boo and Toadette dominated.

Blooper is flat on its face.

[3:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Even deeper dive for Octopath Traveler next.

[3:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They keep screwing up the sound.

[3:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Making me think the break is about to end.

[3:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chiko is back for Octopath Traveler.

[3:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Really loud Mr. Game and Watch music.

[3:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The new demo of Octopath Traveler is out.

[3:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "While everyone out there is playing the demo of the game, we'll just show this segment."

[3:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I haven't paid any attention to this.

[3:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: Me neither.

[3:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The whole point of this segment was to show what happens when you have four party members.

[3:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But I didn't pay attention as to why that's particularly significant.

[3:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like the music.

[3:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like the music.*

[3:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: (Not the music isn't significant.)

[3:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...lol

[3:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We're getting a little bit short on time here."

[3:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh yikes no one said anything for 11 minutes.

[3:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's a record for not caring.

[3:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bye.

[3:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: More Smash coming up.

[3:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Back.

[3:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "one last look"

[4:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're specifically showing The Legend of Zelda cast.

[4:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Interested.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're showing the updated movesets of Ganondorf and Link.

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[4:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Massive damage.

[4:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Link look like he has rage.

[4:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Be careful, "rage" is a term in Smash.

[4:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: I know

[4:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: I was referring to that.

[4:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Link was steaming.

[4:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Didn't know if that was still in.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh I thought you meant he was just mad.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently rage is still in but not as strong as in Smash 4.

[4:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Link's grab is now just using his hand.

[4:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this "you can use two arrows in your bow at once" thing from Breath of the Wild?

[4:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or did Sakurai come up with it and think it'd be cool?

[4:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: That ninja bow did it.

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: whoa

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LINK GETS BLADE BEAMS

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LIKE IN HIS SERIES

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BUT IKE DOESN'T GET BLADE BEAMS

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: EVEN THOUGH IT'S AN IMPORTANT FEATURE OF HIS SWORD, RAGNELL.

[4:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND CLOUD GETS BLADE BEAMS TOO.

[4:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't like this being called Final Destination.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Me neither.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's unlike every other Final Destination.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's all daylight and Battlefield-y.

[4:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Here's Zelda.

[4:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The non-complete Phantoms don't have a hitbox.

[4:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well that was it for Zelda's aforementioned "new moves"

[4:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: This battle makes Calamity Ganon look bad.

[4:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not mentioned is that you can use Din's Fire off-stage without becoming helpless.

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So because Ganondorf is on the Great Plateau Tower and they have the remix of the BotW main theme...

[4:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...I feel like it's actually a remix of the Ganon boss music in BotW.

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Which is a remix of a main theme)

[4:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is a remix?

[4:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Sounds like a port.

[4:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's on the main site.

[4:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bbxHEO0Q-U

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's only one music per stage in the demo.

[4:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is that 'cause it's a demo?

[4:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'd hope

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Noting that Treehousers are now allowed to say words like "kill" and "suicide" on stream.

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They weren't allowed to do that in years prior.

[4:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: What do they say?

[4:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Destroy?

[4:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Defeat?

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Fainted, lost a stock.

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Self-destructed.

[4:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah.

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They also aren't allowed to say "loser's bracket" so they say things like "elimination round" and "lower bracket".

[4:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's the closest we've ever seen the sudden death.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Sudden Death fully zoomed in all the way Ganondorf Great Plateau Tower
It doesn't zoom in any further from this point. Prior to this, there are flames and stuff on the sides of the screen.

[4:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeah

[4:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The off-screen radar thing is helpful there.

[4:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Spirit Train.

[4:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: First look.

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alfonzo is still there.

[4:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead of conductor Toon Link.

[4:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Someone off-screen is in the Melee Peach's Castle stage.

[4:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: I was unlucky and played Phantom Hourglass and not Spirit Tracks.

[4:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: TRAINS

[4:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Zelda's Up B way buffed?

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It was her primary KO move in 4.

[4:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.

[4:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It might be weaker than in 4.

[4:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Stronger than in Brawl tho.

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yup.

[4:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She has a throw combo into up-b kill in 4.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not a huge fan of reused victory themes.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: One of the biggest things that makes the same seem old.

[4:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh hey

[4:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE

[4:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: ABOUT TIME

[4:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Get a screen of it.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Princess Peach's Castle stage from Melee in HD background
Princess Peach's Castle doesn't even look like this anymore. Or its surroundings.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh, okay.

[4:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Waterfall looks good.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We don't try to kidnap her from the room.

[4:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *roof

[4:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wondering if you can swim here.

[4:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'd screenshot the Banzai Bill if it was on-screen.

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I think he goes by Bullet William."

[4:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "He grew up and doesn't like Bill anymore."

[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It's more of a Banzai Bill I think... or Banzai William, I'm sorry."

[4:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: We should just always refer to this Bullet as that.

[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Banzai William?

[4:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: or this Banzai

[4:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: yeh

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's their headcanon.

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: No swimming confirmed?

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: For this stage anyway.

[4:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...yeah.

[4:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Confusing.

[4:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Be right back for Killer Queen Black.



We don't want to spoil it, but we probably should: Next log is the last reaction log for the entire E3 2018. Sad. Anyway, are you going to call that character Banzai William?


There was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the previous log, too!
Here it is. The last log.
