Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl: Latest Patch Notes (October 18)

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is being updated with its another patch, this time to address more of the early rough edges that've become more than apparent since the game launched just under two weeks ago.


The first sizable update for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is now available for PC users, which adjusts most of the cast and makes changes to the general gameplay.

Ludosity developer Thaddeus "Repetio" Crews took to Twitter today to list a handful of the changes that're en route, most notably the fact that Michelangelo, the most overpowered character in the game currently, is getting its neutral air attack nerfed. Below you'll see Crews' post embedded for quick viewing. You'll notice a few of these are certainly in shorthand, a full list of updates can be found below.


To get a full idea of how many changes have hit NASB since it dropped back on October 5, you can compare these notes to the ones that came out in the game's very first update on October 9.

The full list of patch notes can now be found on the game's Steam page, and I'll be continuously updating this story with the changes as well.

Review: Bikini Bottom comes to life at CSUF with "The SpongeBob Musical"

The Little Theatre production put on an enthusiastic performance for "The SpongeBob Musical" based off the hit Nickelodeon show. (Cheryl Savala / CSUF Department of Theatre and Dance)

Bikini Bottom was brought to life in an incredibly fun and charming performance of "The SpongeBob Musical" in the Little Theatre this weekend. The musical, based on the animated hit Nickelodeon series, was a great show for an audience of all ages and brought the house down with humor, emotion, amazing vocal performances and great musical numbers. 

This production, directed by alumna Sarah Ripper, hit on all aspects of production and was especially elevated by the wonderful student performers in the company. 

The plot followed impending doom for the fictional town of Bikini Bottom as a seamount is about to erupt. With only a day left to live, SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy set out to save the day while Plankton capitalizes on the doomsday scenario by plotting one of his evil schemes.

All the lead characters were perfectly cast by actors who embodied the spirit of these iconic characters. Leading the show as SpongeBob was Wyatt Hatfield, whose seemingly effortless portrayal of the character’s childlike innocence and amazing voice made for a memorable performance as he smiled, danced, sang and shimmied his way through the night. 

He’s a truly wonderful performer who is featured in many of the show’s songs and he delivered on each and every one with such charm and charisma integral to his role, never breaking his smile that lit up the auditorium. 

The show began as a typical SpongeBob affair, through the lens of a musical, and then became a poignant message about coming together in the face of chaos and the importance of community. This message is brought home by Hatfield’s fantastic performance of “Best Day Ever.” 

Hatfield wasn’t alone in his excellent performance, as Kainoa Miller rocked a pink wig while playing SpongeBob’s best friend Patrick Star. The two had great chemistry and really sold some of the more emotional moments in the show, evoking audible gasps from the crowd. 

He played Patrick in a humanizing way, giving the character emotional depth while also nailing the comedic moments the character is most known for. 

Audrey Lyn Crabaño rounded out the friendly trio as Sandy Cheeks. Her performance was certainly one of the stand-outs in the company as she commanded the stage with authority, which is perfect for her character. She embodied the strong female that Sandy is, while also tapping into her more vulnerable side, by displaying amazing physicality with her high kick and cartwheel skills. 

The trio’s performance of “Hero is My Middle Name,” was easily one of the most memorable in the show.

All that being said, the standout performance came from Tylor Jenkins, who played Squidward. All throughout, his wonderful voice and wry presence sat in the background like a predatory cat stalking its prey. 

But, it’s his performance of “I’m Not a Loser,” that won over the night and had the audience roaring with applause and cheers. The musical number delved deep into the character’s psyche in an all-out tap-dancing routine that Jenkins masterfully pulled off along with the rest of the ensemble. 

It was truly a sight to behold and is easily the most memorable part of the show thanks to the amazing choreography from Courtney Ozovek.

Kristian Acruz (Plankton) and Audrey Forrester (Karen the Computer), were hilariously charming as the antagonistic couple. Seeing Karen brought to life from the screen to the stage was a real treat and was made even better with the vocal performance of Forrester, who absolutely nailed the voice. 

Braxton McGrath (Mr. Krabs) and Layla Elefante (Pearl), had some memorable moments as the father and daughter duo. During their performance of “Daddy Knows Best,” Elefante’s amazing voice took center stage and blew the audience away. 

Madeline Rae Delgros was great as Perch Perkins, occasionally interjecting in a humorous way while Jonah Meyer made a great cameo as Patchy the Pirate. 

While the lead performers managed to carry much of the plot, the entire ensemble did an exemplary job of bringing this play to life. During most of the song-and-dance numbers, it was the ensemble that brought a lot of energy to the play, filling out the stage in the Little Theatre. 

The music, which has writing credit from hit artists like Panic! At the Disco, Cyndi Lauper and John Legend are great and brought to life by the talented voices of the performers and music director Sarah Grandpre. 

The technical aspects of this play are also what made it a fun experience for fans of the animated series. Large cutouts of each character’s houses established the setting early on in the play and were a beautiful sight to see along with the decorated curtains adorned with flowers from the show. 

SpongeBob’s pet Gary even made a cameo, being rolled onto the stage. One of the great moments featured Hatfield kissing Gary in what was a prime example of his heartfelt performance. 

For fans of the series, there are many inside jokes that are hilarious nods to the long-running show. But even people who weren’t fans of the show, or accompanying their children were enjoying the show immensely. With a runtime of two hours and 30 minutes, the show flew. 

It’s a bummer that this show only ran for a weekend, but those lucky enough to be in the audience this past weekend will never forget this show. 

These performers have a bright future ahead of them.
