Dude, just skip school. I'm skipping school! There is no way in hell I'm going to wait even a minute more than I need to. The spoilers will be all over the place! If Geno does make it in, it's like, a once in a lifetime kind of thing. Don't miss it!
i mean, it's basically a family emergency. geno's like a brother to us at this point.

I was thinking that, but I'm already skipping on friday to get the ultimate bundle when it releases since I still don't have a switch, and I care about grades so I don't want to skip anymore then I have to

It's a 40-minute Direct. How could there not be more than one character reveal?
very true my friend. if grinch leak is real, i guess i can't imagine them revealing 7 characters in one go because they've never done that before. and idk how likely it is that we could get two directs before the game launches but it's definitely possible.

Guys, don't skip school; just check your phone or something asap. We waited 20 years for Geno; he can wait an hour for his fans. #UncoolVoiceOfReason

And every Smash Direct usually happens when any functioning member of society is working/at school; I wish they would do them on Saturdays for that reason. At least general Nintendo Directs happen at perfect evening times for Eastern Americans.

I literally cannot remember the last time I caught a Smash Direct live; I think it was Lucas DLC. I tried watching the last one on the toilet at work on ****ty cellular data that I'm not even allowed to use... so many implications. Worst part is I'm off Friday... one ****ing day.

Live reactions are overrated by the way; **** needs to carry itself on its own merit. I'm done stopping the world for Smash.

It's 40 min; definitely more than one character, and I'll be surprised if the Grinch leak is neither confirmed nor denied. I will lol if it's only Skull Kid and the leak remains untethered since people kinda see him.

But yeah, I'm always watching the clock and get frustrated about Etika and all the people watching it who seemingly have no responsibilities.

Do you guys think that November 1st will finally be our day?

I've been waiting for this since Brawl speculation days. I'm not sure what to expect :_(

They're capable of putting ****ty characters in the game that aren't trolls; they've done it before.

lol... as if! I think Geno would want the kids to go to school, sir.

All we need is an asap confirmation that Grinch is real... I teased it would start with a Skull Kid reveal as he could be in the banner, as a way to **** with the fans (neither confirming nor denying Grinch).

Wow it’s been a long time coming for me to post here, too long. I’ve finally decided to get a Smashboards account just to join the discussion for this certain puppet that I’ve come to love after lurking around a bit. Consider me a Genobro, or Genbro, whatever it’s called, I’m fully on board for him! Can’t wait to see the next Direct!!

Yes I will.

I'll also probly put up a video tomorrow with some final before-direct thoughts and announce ill stream it.

warning though I'm not set up super well for streaming, i have gotten a new "streaming webcam" since the last direct i streamed BUT I will also film myself with my normal camera at the same time and i'll use that footage to put up a reaction video at some point after the direct, so if you want to watch the direct somewhere that can promise a better quality experience by all means do that and you can still watch my geno reaction, if that happens, a little while afterwards.
Oh man...I want to watch and celebrate, but I was also hoping to be on a voice chat or discord or something with the thread...basically, I want to experience this with ALL my Genobros! How can I achieve this? And is anyone else planning to be on live as well?

I don't even HAVE school. The only thing standing in my way is getting up early.
I'm going to be up from the night before, lol. My schedule is weird (I work nights,) but it has its perks. It helps that I was off on that day anyway.:p

The Star Road Discord exists, and will definitely be filled with excited Geno fans from this thread and elsewhere come Thursday. Come and join us!

EDIT:
http://boards.4chan.org/v/thread/437069772

/v/ is claiming that people on ResetERA are saying that Geno is an Assist Trophy

Does anyone have a source for that?
Yeah, no. Sakurai would not let Geno be an AT under any circumstances. The man himself said he wanted him to be playable in Brawl and Smash 4 and thought he was a perfect fit for Smash, why would he change his mind now and decide he's only deserving of an assist role?
These people sound like they're just trying to spoil other people's fun, as folks on /v/ and ResetERA tend to do.

Take anything from /v/ and ResetEra with a mound of salt. One trolls too much and the other is just anti-fun.
I'm not familiar with ResetEra, but I know that about 4chan. I've heard enough people say Resetera is unreliable though.
I choose to believe they're just trolling.

Probably why he didn't have a link or picture of a source.

Me @ a Geno AT:

There are insiders saying some characters on the leak are Assist trophies, but I'd assume it would be Chorus Kids or Mach Rider, or Shadow staying as an Assist, then anything.

Hey Geno fans, I came from the Isaac forum to wish you guys some luck. I never played Super Mario RPG, but Geno looks like
an interesting character. I would like to support Geno, even if the leak most likely says that he's already in.

Okay I just wanted to say that I believe there are people out there who know insiders and can get information. That's why I believe peeps like papageno and billy. But how do so many people have insiders, and can easily get access to classified info? I'm sorry but there is no way that this many people have info about Smash Ultimate, it's like Sakurai said "I want everyone to pinky promise that you won't say anything". No, they sign contracts and stuff to keep people from letting spoilers out. Unless there's just a ton of people at Nintendo who don't mind risking their job.

Gamexplain's latest video had them believing that Geno wouldn't be in the game

They are saying maybe for DLC

Although 1 of them still thinks Geno could be in base

Hopefully this "John" is a false prophet

I've lurking around the ResetERA smash thread pretty much all day and I can say that the "Geno = assist" issue was overblown. Basicly, Emily Rogers posted that multiple characters in the grinch banner are actually ATs and everyone jumped the gun and started suggesting Geno and Isaac are the most likely to be assists, however once MysticDistance posted that he was confident that both Isaac and Geno are in the game everyone did a huge 180 and both characters are actually seen as likely to be added now.

I hope that cleared up some confusion. Stay hyped guys!
also hey i'm new here.

It certainly has been a long time since I posted here. My life has changed a lot since the SSB4 days and haven't been able to keep track with anything smash related. But I recently heard about all these leaks and stuff getting around and I remembered the good old days in here. I see I am even in the legacy supporters! What a great touch to keep track of us who have been away but still will be very happy to see if our great starsend savior get's in at last. All the best to us all and may Thursday bring good news!
