** Sort of WildMassGuessing here, but: They may have been experimenting with a more "professional" style, as most official tournaments (or at least ones run by StopHavingFunGuys) insist on very strict rulesets with no items, stages without gimmicks, etc. I personally think it turned out less interesting than it could have, but it may have just been a test.

** Also, to add on: in the opening rules, they say normal and omega stages are allowed. I think the players just kept voting for omega, it wasn't in the rules that they had to. The "no items" was definitely different, though.

* In the Brawl tournament, they had items turned on but in the Smash Wii U tournament, they didn't have items and fought on the Omega stages. Why play with different rules for the two tournaments?

** I'm pretty sure the reason Emile got a lot more verbal abuse in that game was because they had Masae as their guest. Their previous guests - LetsPlay/JoshJepson, LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}}, and LetsPlay/SuperJeenius - were, while [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], not really focusing their vitriol towards Emile unless he actually did something clearly deserving of it. Masae has known him for a while, and even outside of TRG, reacts to him more or less the same way Jon does, which is why it felt like he was being targeted a lot more for even minor things. I personally think it was overdone, but regardless, there's the explanation.

* So back in New Super Mario 3D World, there was a lot of issues when it came to Emile. Was he just because he was the easy punching bag, or were they literally trying to envoke him as a ButtMonkey and therefore the others give him a lot of flak unnecessarily-especially Masae?

* In Brawl, they forget to rescue Ike. Why didn't they go back for him before starting the Great Maze? It couldn't have taken more than a minute or two.

** As it turns out, Wii Party ''was'' LP 6, but then it got postponed partway through. It's an actual LP; it just got stopped after Globe Trot in favour of Little Big Planet. So technically, it's LP 7.

* Why are they suddenly doing a LetsPlay of ''Wii Party''? Not that I'm complaining, but they said their next project would be A) on a non-Nintendo system and B) have a guest. Why did that project get postponed?
** They also said Diabeetus wouldn't be a guest. Seriously though, They probably postponed it or something, like they postponed Four Swords because SuperJeenuis was doing it already.
** [[http://www.formspring.me/PJon/q/378991635498823825 Jon said]] it was due to technical difficulties, and their original LP #6 is now LP #7.
