  • I'm super-stoked for KoF so much that I downloaded 94 to 98 on my Mame4droid emulator and decided to watch as the stoy unfolds.
    If Sakurai pulls two surprise characters as the last two DLC, it'll be like Madara Uchiha pulling a Tengai Shinsei against the entire leaker community.
    As I'm waiting for news about the second Nintendo Direct. I'm getting divided over me actually watching it. I can't help but feel sad about it. On one hand, the female character issue I've recently re-sparked. On the other hand, the fact that the entire fanbase predicted the so-called "unpredictable DLC" is akin to the sinking of the Titanic.

    Pretty sure it'll be someone that no one expects. This is the hill that I'll die on. Only thing I'm concerned about is whether the Direct comes while I'm on vacation or not.

    I just hope that Frisk Waluigi leak is real XD
    Hey. I too am a feminist, but we shouldn't be discouraged by an all male (unless you count Kazooie) DLC roster. We shouldn't judge characters on their gender, as that is antithetical to the idea of gender equality.
    The unfortunate truth of the matter is that most video game protagonists are male due to 80s culture in the United States. Video games back then were not mainstream, so they were sold as toys at the time. But when marketing the NES in the US, Nintendo had to choose whether to sell it as a boy's toy or a girl's toy, because toy isles were gendered back then.
    Because the NES brought gaming to international popularity, it's US marketing as a boy's toy created a cultural image that gaming was a boy's thing despite gaming demographics being about 50/50 with males and females.
    Because of this 80s culture, video games would typically star male characters to match marketing. Today, we see why this was problematic. Because Smash Bros. is a game for video game icons, it is natural that most characters that have had time to become synonymous with gaming have been around since gaming was marketed primarily to boys.
    So it's not Nintendo intentionally choosing all male characters, but simply the fact that most video game icons have been around so long.
    But do not lose hope! We can still support the female characters that have broken through the cultural barrier to become all-stars!

    Well, if that's the case, then I could see that becoming a thing then.

    I'm just hoping instead for a second Fighters Pass that could include female characters to make up for the lack of ones in the current ones. That way, it'll be a win-win scenario.

    Nintendo, try to release more. Fighting games these days offer seasons of DLC, so why not Smash? The game is very healthyas of right now, so try to strike gold when possible!

    To be honest, most characters I want are technically male, but very androgynous (lacking defining features we associate with gender).
    I like 90s platformers, so my most wanted characters are Crash, Spyro, and Rayman. But if the manual didn't say so, I couldn't really assign gender to them.
    After long thought, and despite my short time here, I'm done with my part of DLC Discussion. As much as I don't want to repeat myself, it seems my claims fell on deaf ears.

    We're getting an all-male Fighters Pass, with Haya and Doomguy in it, but I'm not gonna care anymore. My hopes for DLC characters were crushed, and I believe any female character I want in Smash won't be because Nintendo did not consider adding any. I believe ever since the Bayonetta situation, they no longer want any female to break the game , so they're not going for it. As a feminist, that just...breaks my heart.

    You guys can party along when your characters, I'll just sulk at myself. I'll remember this brief time I made myself look like an idiot in front of the Smash community.

    I'm sorry, but I won't be participating in this anymore. It just didn't fit my beliefs.
    I'm wary about this Fighters Pass having only male characters. I'm a feminist, and having no female characters in this Fighters Pass is a big no-no for me. At least Smash 4 gave us Bayo, but please, I'm not down for leaving out women.
    Guh-Huzzah!

    Kazooie is female, to be fair.

    That's literally just 0.5 percent of the entire character. I wanted a 100 percent entirely female character.
