A sad, sad place... may I have hugs? <3
The direct is in an hour, my anxiety is only amplified by the fact I can't watch it live.
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you're missing it. The picture there is funny though. :)
Cats and playable Elma are all I need in Smash.
Aww no, I don't have any more room in my signature for more quotes, because this is the perfect post.

If Elma is shown as playable, fantastic.

If she is not shown, but also nothing from X is shown and Sakurai finishes with a, we still have some surprises for later, okay

If she is not playable but there is X content, dissapointing but tolerable

If she is not in and nothing from X is there, I won't buy smash ultimate, there is no excuse for this

Well then, less than five minutes remain. I'll stay off any social media while watching the Direct, so see you on the other side. Let's hope for the best.

Since the robo figure wasnt for Mach it might still be for Elma. Im sure theirs gonna be one more character at the end of the video. She also hasn't been shown as a spirit to my knowledge.

It really makes me wonder on what Elma's chances are as DLC now that Sakurai disconfirmed Rex. Could she still have a chance?

Sucks that there apparently isn't any XCX music tracks though. Maybe they're keeping them on hold until they're done with her or something?

The only thing I saw from X was a Skell formula sticker (spirit) . Could not tell if there was music, and there is no stage. And X was ignored by Sakurai, while taking about Xenoblade. I will only buy the game if she is DLC.

Not gonna lie, I'm disappointed as all hell. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they've shown literally nothing from X, and instead put in a bunch of random stuff from 2. My only hope now is that Elma (or anyone else from X for that matter) wasn't shown as an Assist Trophy, which means there's still some hope for the Fighter Pass, but that's also dwindling.
. . .I better not say anything else right now, or else I'm gonna end up saying a lot of bad things about 2.

Guys...while Elma mighg nit be on the base roster we might still be on! Isaac, Shadow and others have sadly fallen, but that leaves the door open for us.
I haven't seen ANYTHING from XCX, and Sakurai, when talking about the Rex Mii Costume, did say that he was too late in developmeng. If DLC were picked at the same time as the project proposal Elma might still be on the way as DLC.

Remember, no music or stage from X is a great sign for her since every DLC fighter will come with those!

I'm feeling great right now, and Elma as DLC might be a reality! I can't belive this!

Don't lose hope everyone.
I think it's pretty clear to everyone that Xenoblade needs another rep. And Rex and Pyra are deconfirmed now. There was no new Xenoblade stage either, no XCX music and Elma is not a mii costume, assist trophy or even spirit apparently. And seeing all the spirits, I'm pretty sure Elma would've been among them as well. She's popular enough for that. So I'm pretty sure she will be DLC along with an XCX stage and some of its awesome music.

This direct was...something else. A freaking Piranha-Plant. Thats so Sakurai and i think its both awesome and stupid at the same time. Looking Forward to it. Anyway a little bit dissapointet that there wasnt anything Xenoblade X-retaled but there is still hope for DLC. And that Story-Trailer at the end man...awesome (and Shantae got a cameo. Thats cool).

Can anyone check for me how the General discussion thread is going right now. Wouldnt surprise me if a lot of people would be hella salty (i hate that word bwt but thats the only one that really fits the situation...). I just want to be sure if i ever want to have something to do with this fanbase thats all.

Elma has no chance. X got literally nothing in that entire thing. In a world where getting an assist trophy or costume is a consolation prize she didn't even get those. Sakurai really has it out for this game.

Yeah, mean, holy CRAP! First we have Chain Chomp in Mario Tennis, now Piranha Plant in Smash!

...I just realized: does this give hope to people who want Bandanna Waddle Dee?

Easy there, buddy, there's still DLC. That's something to look forward to, right?

Elma has a snowball's chance in the middle of the sun. We know her ballot popularity is non-existent. X's presence in Smash is the bare minimum. No-one liked X. And every argument you could make about her popularity is doubly true for hundreds of other characters

Well, I do think she could be DLC, and X did got something, a Formula spirit. But not having Elma deconfirmed is at least a good thing, I mean, "good".

I stay by what I said, it is totally unforgivable to have such a lack of X content, even fatal Frame maiden of black water from wii u got more. If Elma is not DLC, I won't buy the game. They can continue to ingore X in hell.

Nope. The Xenoblade series got three new songs, all from 2. That's it. That's literally it.
Damn. I didn't want to believe what PSIGuy just said, but now of really looks like Sakurai doesn't care AT ALL for Xenoblade X. This is what I feared the most: Regardless of how we and even Monolith feels about X, it really looks like everyone is treating it like the unwanted stepchild of the Xenoblade series :(

They said that they had the DLC already assumedly as part of the project plan, which is why Rex was too new to get in.

That means that Elma has a chance to be DLC since she was in a prime spot at the time and still has everything else going for her. We also still do not know where the Vifram model went.

Do not give up hope!

Why are you here? Sounds like you're not a fan yourself and are just here to gloat.
