    I am legit over the moon about Piranha Plant. It is every single thing I wanted from a Smash newcomer but never thought I'd get. I didn't think I'd ever be this excited about a Smash character again.

    "konkai wa sansen faita wa hatsubai mae ni subete kougai shi o to omoimasu. Ato sukoshi dake sonzashimasu" "This time we plan to reveal every fighter before game goes on sale. Later there will be just a few more". So I mean obviously it's basically just what the official translation says...

    Oh yeah. It was also massive in many parts of Latin America. It's frankly ASTONDING how long it took for the anime to get a US release.

    There was a really weird period in the early/mid 90s where DBZ was mostly considered a gamer thing in the US because the cartoon hadn't come over yet but the Super Butoden games on Super Famicon were like the most imported games of the 16 bit gen so they got big coverage in all the American...

    Wow did you guys stop talking about Pokémon when I wasn't watching and started again or have you guys been going for like a day straight? Anyway, here's the only thing I have to say about Pokémon; I'd really like- don't expect but would like - a combat trainer. Like a trainer who you actually...

    They both have a very strong puppet theme to them too, with Geno being a puppet brought to life and Skull Kid being a living thing made into a puppet (metaphorically but there's very deliberate puppetry imagery/sound design with him in MM). I'd imagine that would factor into animations or...

    I feel like this with the wouldn't it be cool thread being way more popular is a pretty great illustrator of "support" vs. "want" in Smash fandom. Character support is tied up in bunch of stuff like perceived viability, strength in number mentality in terms of getting a character in via fan...

    By Vermillion gym my Squirtle was a Blastiose and could outspeed and oneshot all of Serge's pokemon, so being weak to electric attacks was irrelevant. Using one pokemon completely breaks the game. I'm not saying the new games aren't easier if played the intended way obviously they are but...

    On my first playthrough of Blue when it first came out I literally never switched pokemon. I just used Squirtle to Blastoise the whole way through and blew through the whole game with zero effort. Gen 1 is piss easy if you just use your starter, I assume all the Pokémon games are, the exp/stat...

    Alright I'm a couple days late on responding to the direct been a real busy week is it too late for me to say "I told you so" about echos? That's a rhetorical question of course it isn't.

    Update is up on the Japanese Smash site and it’s the Smashbomb(the fake Smashball). Edit: Oops just noticed you guys talked about it pages ago. I assumed it was recent since it’s not on the English site yet, my bad.

    "You ain't no air fighter Tails!" "But I-" "Quit fooling around up there, Smash ain't no joke."

    The next game’s tag line is going to be “No one is here!”. Any character who has ever been playable in Smash is out of the running. It’s history’s greatest crossover of 3rd string Nintendo characters.

    To extrapolate on my last post, because I think I could've said it better... The difference between numbered clone character and echo is a PR difference to mitigate fan reaction, I don't think many people disagree with that. With numbered clones you don't want them to be too similar to their...

    I think people get too caught up on trying to reverse engineer the limitations of a echo from the current examples of echos and old clones that didn't end up as echos when the devs are probably being really loose with it. Dark Pit's character concept was literally just a laundry list Sakurai...
