  • I don't get it. With all this talk about Mario Kart 9 being in "active development", people are suggesting it could be a Smash Bros. spin-off.

    I'm not against it, but I see the presence of Link, Villager, Isabelle, and Inkling in 8/Deluxe as a one-time thing, not the beginning of an era. Would Nintendo really go for it a second time, let alone expand upon it?
    Why do no other low tier mains clamor for their character to be buffed? You can't tell me you don't want your favorite character to be good.

    - Ex-Reptar main
    Why do some people act like Ultimate's bad netcode is the reason for everything wrong with the game?

    Even offline, you still got pancaking, infinities that the game forgot to patch out, falling through the stage (if that's still a thing), etc.

    I hate demonization.

    And yet its the best balanced, most polished smash game, the best platform fighter of the decade by far, and one the most balanced and polished games the switch has
    Final balance patch? I'd make a statement, but I know people have an unflinching dedication that I wish I had, so I'm not gonna bother.
    Are Super Mario Land, Super Mario Land 2, and Super Mario World even Mario games or not?

    Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island created sub-franchises. Or are these two considered Mario games just because 'Mario' is in the title?
    What's taking fighting game devs so long to realize that being slow makes a character dysfunctional and borderline unplayable? And how the heck do some players find this historically unviable playstyle fun?

    Is it safe to assume Nick Brawl is dead, or at least dying?

    The game is still very unpolished and noob-unfriendly, and no one's really saying much about it these days anymore, while MultiVersus is looking to be super promising in comparison.

    No. Just because everybody isnt constantly screaming about NASB and making 1000 videos doesn’t mean it’s dead. It just means the hype has worn down.
    GamerZardEX
    GamerZardEX
    Why is it not dead though? As I said before, the game is severely lacking in polish and balance, the former being a worse turn-off.

    Because the game has fun gameplay and lots of things which people have been asking from smash bros for years. Added on to the fact that you can play as iconic characters as well as the fact that it isn’t very elitist makes it very easy to feel comfortable playing the game even against experienced players.
    Name a Mario Kart track that's more poorly designed than Toad's Turnpike from 64. You can't.

    You just described Baby Park. It's so short, simple, and hazardless, how do people enjoy that snoozefest?
    Twitter Tip: If your pinned tweet is not your most popular tweet, you're selling yourself short and using the app wrong.

    I don't make the rules, and it's ticking me off that people are not following them, especially since I've never gotten 1k likes myself.

    Twitter on its way to control somebody’s life and force them to change their personality in order to “fit in”, then bully them into committing suicide when they disagree slightly. Twitter is a hellhole, one that I have had the pleasure of never making an account for.
    Give me a good reason why I shouldn't care about internet clout and its personal and social benefits.

    Validation and the feeling that you're somebody. Genuine praise, basically.
    I find it strange that when I say being slow in a platform fighter is poor character design that doesn't work, people disagree with me.

    Playing patiently with a slow character compared to someone like Sheik requires a horribly high amount of awareness, especially against rushdown characters. Even then, it stops working at top-level play.

    It doesn't help that a lot of these types of characters take heavy abuse if they aren't precise with their punishes. How is that not poor character design?
    Buffing what a bad character already excels at instead of what actually needs to be buffed is bad balance. Why make Incineroar KO earlier as if he already doesn't do that instead of making his air speed better and thus making him viable?
    I'm not surprised about Nick Brawl's viewership plummeting. Do you honestly expect a game that is very unpolished and very unbalanced to have a lot of fans?

    It’s not necessarily the fault of Nick Brawl or the developers that it’s being dropped quickly. While it can certainly be attributed the a lack of polish/some issues with balance but they are only a component and a weak one like that. Especially when you consider games that lack polish but manage to still do well. This is an issue with hype culture and mass consumerism. Gamers are used to the polish that Triple A games can provide, the hype rosters that are games like Smash, or “viral” hits like Amongus or Fortnite. Gamers have the literally lifespan of a toddler and move onto the next shiny thing that crosses their path without giving it any proper attention as it doesn’t fit within their already narrow tunnel vision of what makes a game good. Then they jump on the band wagon to pile onto a game. Many games earn hate for what they have or what they lack. Nick Brawl has only been out for almost a month and developers are still working on it and are fairly transparent of their intentions. DLC is all but confirmed which should provide some needed attention - especially given gamers attention spans. In addition, Nick Brawl being called a “a smash killer” helped set the game on a pedestal that would ultimately doom it and this is something the developers wanted to avoid; the never liked tor comparisons of the two as well as the “smash killers moniker. Unfortunately, key members in the community labeled Nick Brawl that; Hungrybox in particular. This hurt Nick Brawl before it even left the gates which is unfortunate. I can certainly see this happening to Warner Brawl as well once it’s shown off. Before I’m dismissed as “alright, Nick Brawl fan lolz”, I never played the game and I don’t intend to. Lack of money and time being a factor. That being said, I do read reactions to it and I know how the gamer community acts and thinks. Some people played Nick Brawl, it wasn’t what they thought it was, and dropped it like, well, children. People who pick it up and really dig into the game are the ones who will help the game continue and, hopefully, prosper.
    Why is Peach saying Mamma Mia in Mario Tennis? Has she spent so much time with the Mario brothers that it just kind of rubbed off on her?
    Confession: Up until today, Ocarina of Time was the one Zelda game that was just too scary for me to play. I don't care how badly the Switch messed up the emulation, I'm still going to see what makes this game so great.

    Ocarina of Time was simply amazing but a lot of it is due to nostalgia. That being said, it must be played while keeping the mind frame of the time it debuted in order to appreciate what the game did for the industry. Still though, it holds up pretty well to the test of time. If you thought OoT was a scary game, then don’t even bother picking up Mojora’s Mask.
    With DLC done, I believe now Ultimate can have a definitive tier list. I don't see why it shouldn't.
    I got told multiple times that a heavy being combo food is not bad character design, and that's just????? People really see nothing wrong with a character being annoyingly susceptible to zero to deaths (especially those that don't work on smaller characters)?
    Confession.

    Although I said I retired from Smash, Sora dropped and I still wanted to get everyone in Elite Smash. Many matches and strained vocal cords later...



    Now that I've met this admittedly meaningless goal, I no longer have anything to work towards, and I'll gladly play quickplay at the risk of losing anyone.
    NASB players are being very unsportsmanlike and the NASB discord decided to go dead and inactive when I needed them. And people keep honking their horns for no reason.

    I hate the world right now, so I screamed at the sky for a whole minute. I ended up losing my voice, but I'm not in the mood to care.

    I'm not about to explain how complicated my life is.
    Although I'm no longer a Smash player, I'm still very tired of the "Donkey Kong is bad" slander. What can anyone do about it?
    Why am I not being taken seriously? Winning with anyone else brings me no satisfaction, so my complaint on Donkey Kong not being buffed is entirely justified.

    You're not being taken seriously because it isn't serious. It's a ****ing video game, bro. Cope.

    Because I think everyone's more or less just come to know you as "That guy who complains" tbh. Like, no offense, but when I look at the front page, I almost never see any positivity from you, it's just ceaseless anger and rage, and after awhile, people are just going to find that extremely immature.
    I honestly cannot even look at Donkey Kong in anything anymore without remembering that Smash Ultimate did him dirty.

    Wait, how bad is Donkey Kong's nerf? Not that I care too much, but just wondering.

    He wasn't patched at all despite being bad.
    I no longer own Smash Ultimate.
    People get matched with someone online, play a lagless match, win, and then leave????

    Why do people do that? What do people have against "run that back"?
    I want to apologize for self-projecting my anger and disappointment again. Could anyone please recommend me a new hobby? There's only so much book reading and neighborhood trekking I can do until I need to play video games.

    Disc golf is a really good way to take a hike (alone or with friends) and play a fun game while you do so. There are some websites out there that tell you where local courses are if it sounds interesting.

    Gardening; regardless if it’s in a plot of land or in containers is a great stress reliever. Seeing something grow that was tended and cared for and the harvested to be used for nourishment and enjoyment is a good feeling. I felt more compelled to research recipes and try new culinary things with things I actually grew.
    For whatever reason, unless the character is a specialized zoner, I play every character like a rushdown character. This includes grapplers and highly defensive characters. Maybe this explains my rough relationship with fighting games.

    Rushdown is how Zelda is meant to be played and I do not care what the B-button wifi warriors think.
    My opinion of Reptar in Nick Brawl has dropped significantly, so I am not playing the game until he gets buffed. I'm sick of heavies not being designed correctly.

    He certainly falls apart against the top tiers. But it's very early in the game's lifespan, and I have no doubt Ludosity will start taking feeback on nerfs/buffs once the meta develops a bit.
    What's so wrong with making tier lists early in a game's lifespan? Are we not allowed to have opinions?

    I don't think there's really many people saying you can't make simply opinion-based tier lists (and if there is they're wrong) but there is a lot of people saying the community can't make definitive tier lists early on, which I agree with since they're based on match ups not just opinions.
    GamerZardEX
    GamerZardEX
    I disagree. Saying it's too early causes the devs to just nerf whatever they think looks too strong. Why else have Ultimate's low tiers never been promoted?
    You KNOW something is very wrong when you're one of very few low tier mains demanding buffs for them.

    I don't feel like I need buffs. Being kinda bad actually makes it more fun for me because when I win I feel even better...
