30 Days of Fighting: Day 17 (What’s your favorite stage from Smash Bros.?)
Fountain of Dreams
The fact that this stage wasn’t in Brawl and the fact that it will most likely not be in Smash 4 upsets me so much, you have no idea. I love this stage to no end. It is the most gorgeous stage. I prefer it a million times more than Final Destination. I think it’s a better Final Destination than Final Destination. I used to play this stage so much with Zelda or Marth, and it was such a pretty stage to flutter around flawlessly in the lights and gleam. I miss this stage so much. They need to release Melee HD already.
Honorable Mention: Yoshi Island in Brawl
30 Days of Fighting: Day 16 (What’s your favorite stage from a Namco fighter?)
Winter Palace from Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection
God damn, I love this stage. I’m not a die hard fan of Devil Jin (or Jin for that matter), but I’m a die hard fan of both the cold and creepy churches/palaces. And the music for this stage is so strange yet so fantastic. I couldn’t help but love this stage. I used to play this stage all the time on my PSP, or just listen to the theme while I did homework. And it seems like the Tekken team haven’t forgotten this stage either, because they keep remixing the theme.

30 Days of Fighting: Day 15 (What’s your favorite stage from an Arc System Works fighter?)
Rachel Alucard’s Stage from BlazBlue
While we’re still on the subject of spooky, scary
skeletons stages, I adore this stage. I want to live on this stage. It’s so beautiful. I wish I could decorate like this for Halloween, but I don’t have the money or energy. It’s just so visually perfect, and every single BlazBlue stage fails to compare (Tsubaki’s stage comes close, but not close enough). I wish every fighting game had this stage. Honestly.

30 Days of Fighting: Day 14 (What’s your favorite stage from a NetherRealm Studios fighter?)
The Church from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
I loved how eerie this stage was. The music was always so unsettling. It never matched up to the tension of the combat, but the music just worked perfectly with the setting, that it didn’t matter. I’ve come to learn that I’m very different from most MK fans in fact that I tend to prefer the ‘Earthrealm’ type stages. A lot of MK fans prefer the ‘Asian culture’ themed stages of Outworld, but I prefer many of the other modern stages. This one however just gets points from being creepy as hell.
