  • So Wii Party was LP #6...except no, it's filler again. What's goin' on here man? Why would they change their mind like that?
    • Jon doesn't know why, and apparently neither does Emile.
    • They'll likely continue it again partway through the Little Big Planet LP, possibly alternating. I doubt they'd put off the rest of Wii Party for an entire LP.
    • 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 7.2.
  • 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.
  • 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 Butt-Monkey and therefore the others give him a lot of flak unnecessarily-especially Masae?
    • 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 - JoshJepson, Lucahjin, and Super Jeenius - were, while 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.
  • 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?
    • Sort of Wild Mass Guessing here, but: They may have been experimenting with a more "professional" style, as most official tournaments (or at least ones run by Stop Having Fun, Guys) 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.

How well does it match the trope?
