  • I used to think that Rayman was very likely to be a DLC fighter for Ultimate, but after seeing the Creeper and Pig Mii Costumes with detached limbs, I'm almost certain that's preparation for a Deluxe Rayman Mii Brawler Costume.

    ZoroCarlos ZoroCarlos Of course they’re the same odds as they’ve always been, because it’s already been added to the game. Ben Holt Ben Holt is just saying he thinks it’s a lot more likely that it could have already happened, because detached limbs are a possibility for Mii costumes now

    Champion of Hyrule Champion of Hyrule The point I'm trying to make is that detached limbs for Mii costumes were always a possibility, probably even easier than making a regular Mii costume. So the only thing I'm saying is that I don't understand the idea that the Minecraft Miis were a warm-up to add a Rayman costume later.

    Never a bad place to radicalize the Proletariat.
    Now that I have imagined Dr. Cortex as a perfect Deluxe Mii Costume, I have set myself up for disappointment should it not come to be.

    Is Steve the first 100% mute character (not including Miis)?

    Steve literally has no clips in the Voice section of Sounds.
    Reason to get rich:
    When you accidentally wear your shirt inside out like a dumbass, you can blame your butler.
    Remember how everyone thought Hero was broken because of the POTENTIAL of his Down-B, but he ended up being average?
    Same thing with Steve. If anything, I'd wager that he'll end up being fairly low tier. He's very slow and susceptible to rush down. Yea, Diamond is powerful, but it takes a solid 10 seconds from a character with very little zoning capability to literally sit and mine to get a degradable weapon.
    His Down-B and Down-Air are really good, though. But he's still super slow and clunky.
    Hot take: Lloyd will NOT be a playable character in Ultimate. If Bandai-Namco were getting another character, it would have been Heihachi (though if we get Echo Fighters, then Ms. Pac-Man is very possible).
    Furthermore, I am almost certain that Shovel Knight is getting a Mii Costume and that Rayman is either getting a playable spot OR a Mii Costume (and yes, I had called a Rayman Mii Costume before the Minecraft Mii Costumes has unattached limbs).

    So my top 4 predictions after Steve are Dante, Crash Bandicoot, Geno, and Doom Slayer as playable characters all with appropriate Mii Costumes.

    All Smash 4 Mii Costumes returning (even Geno, despite being a predicted character).

    And new deluxe costumes for Rayman (Brawler), Professor Layton (Swordfighter), Shovel Knight (Swordfighter), Hollow Knight (Swordfighter), and Dr. Cortex (Gunner).
    Despite not being on my personal wishlist, I am VERY satisfied with Steve.
    Though my most wanted is still Crash, and I'll be disappointed without him.
    So was Vergeben right all along with Minecraft in Smash?

    From what I understand, some of the files for Rathalos are labeled as "end_dragon". If verge got a peek at the files to get his information, that might be where he got confused.
    Wait. Are people actually mad at Steve?
    I thought this was a pretty universally liked character.

    Minecraft used to get a lot of hate a couple of years ago, similar to how Fortnite is getting hate now. This was the perfect time to reveal him, and I'm glad people finally appreciate Minecraft for what it is, instead of calling it a "cringy kids game". I legitimately wanted Steve since Smash 4, and I'm glad that finally happened. I'm heading to RTC and I'm expecting salt.
    But onto more important things.
    If you're a US citizen, be sure to vote.

    Anyone that doesn't vote Biden gets a personal ass-whoopin' from me.
    If I had $10 Million, I'd open a museum for video games and memorabilia.
    Every box, cartridge, disc, console, sticker, toy, poster, ad, tee shirt, etc ever officially licensed under one roof.
    Might not just be the best video game collection, but most awesome collection of anything ever.

    My honest review of Cuties and how people are grossly overreacting to a piece of media:
    The movie is about juxtaposing how women are treated as sexual property by men in traditional Islamic society to how sexuality is view secularly in the age of social media. Under fundamentalist Islam, women are taught to hide their bodies in public, as their bodies exist solely for the sexual gratification of their husbands.
    But in Secular society, women are still viewed as sex objects with dancing. There is nothing INHERENTLY sexual about shaking your ass, but we still take it that way because of our patriarchal society that STILL views women primarily as sexual objects.
    Hell, spoilers for the end of the movie here, but the point is brought home at the end of the movie when the Cuties dance in front of adults, imitating the dances they see adults do. The crowd is disgusted by the implicit sexuality, despite the girls just thinking they are dancing.
    The whole "point" of the film is to reflect upon women's sexualization in society, even as children.
    I'm watching Cuties out of morbid curiosity to see if it's really as bad as people say it is (before even watching the movie).
    So far, I'm about 10 minutes in, and it seems to focus much more on women's oppression under fundamentalist Islam that it does on any promotion of kiddie diddling.

    I'm a sucker for controversy. Make a big stink out of a piece of media, and I'm gonna be much more inclined to check it out.
    That's how I got into Marilyn Manson as a kid.
    Honestly, I think the controversy just made the movie that much more popular. Lord knows I'd have never watched it without the s***storm it caused.

    That's more or less how it goes with these things. Media controversy almost always blows everything out of proportion and the subject of that controversy is usually much more tame than it is portrayed. My favorite part is the constant clipping, capping, and sharing of all the controversial bits by the outraged, so that we can ensure mass saturation of what is supposedly something we shouldn't be seeing.
    Goddamnit. I'm so hopelessly in love with a special someone.

    Goddamned unprovoked loneliness again.
    I cannot tell if people are actually avoiding me, or if I'm just projecting my emotions onto others' behavior.
    I'm calling it. If Crash Bandicoot becomes playable in Ultimate, Spyro is a lock for Smash 7. Third parties double dip.

    Look at comments of the OP.
    Of all the people that were killed in World War II, how many were Nazis?

    Zero; Nazi's aren't people.

    While I agree that, in general, Nazis are terrible, I have a few things against your post.
    1. According to some stuff I found, there were close to 5,000,000 German fatalities, including military and civilian casualties. That's far from zero.
    2. I seriously doubt that all of the Nazis seriously wanted to be Nazis or agreed with what they did. Sure, you can argue that there were a good chunk of truly evil Nazis during that time, but perhaps some people joined out of a sense of nationalism, because being a Nazi was the "cool new thing", or even because they felt pressured to do so. (Note how political opponents were among the numerous Holocaust victims.)
    3. Is it really okay to say that certain people don't count as human because you don't like them? I'm pretty sure no sane person condones what the Nazi party did, but to call a group of people subhuman just because you dislike them is just wrong. (The Nazi party was guilty of this too IIRC...)
    Ben Holt
    Ben Holt
    1. The Nazis killed 100 million people. 5 million might as well be zero compared to that, but that's not relevant to the point of the post.

    2. Yes, ALL Nazis are bad.

    3. Extremely false equivalency. Nazis dehumanized people for existing in a form they deemed genetically inferior. A person cannot simply stop being Jewish, homosexual, Polish, black, etc. A Nazi is free to stop being a Nazi at ANY time, and thus restore their humanity.
    Furthermore, no one advocates for killing Nazis wantonly, only if they strike first.
    And we dehumanize people everyday simply because we "don't like them". Putting people in cages away from society is dehumanizing, but that's part of the social contract for those that violate the rights of other people. We dehumanize murderers, rapists, child molesters, thieves, etc, but the point of prison is to rehabilitate and reintegrate them into society after they have learned not to commit those actions again.
    Nazis cannot simply be preemptively arrested because Freedom of Speech exists, therefore it is up to the society around them to ostracize them, as Nazism is not welcome in tolerant society. This is known as the tolerance paradox: a tolerant society must tolerate all but intolerance, as the intolerant destroy tolerant society once they attain power. It is up to us not to associate with these people, which is dehumanizing, but it the only way to protect the innocent from Nazism.
    Assault is defined in US law as putting a reasonable fear of danger into another person. A Nazi by their mere existence is committing mass assault, as they openly display their violent, murderous, genocidal ideology right on their shoulders, sometimes literally.
    So yea, don't befriend Nazis, don't have sex with them, don't hire them, don't give them any social acceptance. They are free to stop being Nazis, but until then, they are inhuman scum.
    The minute that it's born, it begins to die.
    I'd love to just give in. I'd love to live this lie.
    Do people even emotionally respond to "You hurt me?"
