Maybe that could be ignored; cause Sonic arguably only has two stages because "most everywhere is here"
While that is true, they didn't bring back Pac-Maze.
And I do realize that could be because of 3DS gimmicks, but it'd still weird having Sonic with three stages when other third parties couldn't even have two.

What is your guy's stance on the "your ungrateful" argument? I personally find it ridiculous and I think people kind of forget what the relationship between producer and consumer is supposed to be; but I'd be curious to pick up other view points. Who knows; maybe I AM being ungrateful.
The way I see it, if the game is free, complaining about it is being ungrateful. But smash bros is not free, it is a product that the company wants us to purchase. And with that, gives you the right to be more critical of the product that you, the consumer are paying for. Don't let anyone call you ungrateful for being a little bit more scrutinous with the stuff you spend your hard earned cash on. If something's not to your liking, you have every right to give voice to that concern. This isn't a gift, it's a product, no matter which way you slice it.

On a sidenote, the VGAs will be live at mid-night for me and i have 2 final tests tomorrow, so i won't be tuning in. I'm not expecting a DLC fighter and if there is one, i doubt it's the SE rep. Anyways, have a good day/evening/night!
Good luck on your tests, hope they go well!

Honestly, there’s no reason for Nintendo to reveal DLC until shortly before it is downloadable. I actually can’t imagine them revealing anything at the VGA about who the DLC characters literally are, or even anything until close to release. People are more likely to buy it close to release, and a hype announcement pushes sales.

By the way, I hate talking and reading about sales and business stuff in this thread because I’m not a strategic business or marketing person, and probably neither is anyone else here. But I’m comfortable making this claim because timing of release of information and content is a legit area of business research and decisions are very deliberate.

They need to push the pass though.

I honestly don’t believe we’ll get any DLC announcements tonight. There’s way too much time between now and 2020 to start rolling out names, especially with the base game already generating tons of hype.

The main argument I see in revealing one this early would be to move Fighter’s Pass preorders. A lot more people would be more persuaded to jump on that if they knew one of the included fighters, versus not knowing any of them at all. It’d be Sakurai/Nintendo’s way of saying “See? The pass is gonna be worth it.”

Wait this is a bit confusing. You say you don't think it's gonna happen; but you also brought up the main argument for it happening without a counter argument? I'm confused, lol.

Oh, sorry...I should’ve switched the order of those paragraphs. I just meant that, while I can see an argument for Nintendo revealing a character tonight, I don’t think they actually will.

Yep, that is, in fact, a time zone! It's located between the East Coast and Pacific Time Zones, so it'll be airing there too. :)

where did you see this? first party switch games digitally release at 12 am est, i dont think theyd make a 3 and a half hour exception for smash
Yo: https://thegameawards.com/how-to-watch/

Also, poor Australia only gets it half an hour before they start. They'll have to make such difficult decisions.

Edit: Oh damn, so I totally misread the original message as the Game Awards, not the game release time. Apologies for confusion folks. All that is for the Game Awards. Game releases at midnight in each local time zone.

But can’t people just change the time zone/location on their switch and get it earlier? I/other people did that with Injustice 2 DLC.

Getting the pass and game together is a bundle deal on the online store, you can’t buy the pass individually. Once the first character’s identity is released, it only discourages pass-buying. Regardless of the character, a large section of players will be dissatisfied. The cost of the pass and getting all the characters individually are the same.

That isn't true. They are most definitely making the pass available individually (unless I missed something) and it is not the same. You save 5 bucks buying the pass, plus get the Rex Mii costume

Edit: I just double checked for you to be safe. The pass comes out individually the same day as the game

Pass is $25.00, with Mii Costume. Individually buying the characters is $30.00 ($5.99 x 5)

I'm hoping the DQ rumors aren't true but I have a feeling they could be.

In that case I probably won't buy a switch right away and go for my original plan of waiting for a cool special edition switch to come out
anything could be true, we just have to hope that nintendo makes the right decision.

It's almost here. Time has passed so quickly. Tomorrow is the day. Super Smash brothers ultimate releases, along with all it's glory. While we may not have Geno right now, let's enjoy all the other characters and hard work sakurai has put into this game. I'm Gonna wake up super early to get to the stores before they open, hope to see you all tomorrow! (Rip those unable to get the game)

Other than people hearing that DQ coming up a lot as part of the list of 7 the only big rumor specifically about DQ I’ve seen is coming from LeakyPanda regarding DQ being announced DLC but the judges not wanting DQ to win at the VGAs out of protest. I’d take that rumor more seriously if it weren’t for the fact that it’s coming from LeakyPanda because they’ve been consistently wrong as far as leaks go.

The Tails talk last page only makes me more disappointed and confused as to why Sonic is still alone with no one else to represent his series. Hmph.

I'm not putting any stock into LeakyPandy's claims about a DQ character tonight because for all their fancy talk, their track record is about as impressive as soggy cereal.

It's been over a month and I still can't believe shadow is just an AT and not an Echo.
I've been stewing over it all month as well, first time Sakurai has ever made me question his logic in not picking a character. Just holding out SEGA hears the outcry and comes knocking on his door telling him to fix that mistake.

So What if He's a Spirit in the game; What difference does THAT make?!!

Male Wii fit trainer & King K Rool are spirits in the game; and they're also playable characters; If those 2 can be spirits AND Fighters, Why can't Geno?!

At first this was one of the reasons I thought if there really was a Square rep, it would be Crono instead of Dragon Quest. I mean if Geno wasn't in and they went that route. I thought they might remake Chrono Trigger or something, like a sequel, which would tie into Smash. Especially since Dragon Quest is a gamble. The same could be applied to Geno and Super Mario RPG though, so it works both ways if what they said means anything
