Official Smash Ultimate Discussion

Almost one month has passed since release. In retrospect....

  • This is by far the best Smash ever. Like, I don't even know how they will top this.

  • Pretty freakin' good; I have a few qualms over things like internet play, balancing issues, etc.

  • It's ok, but [insert Smash game here] is better.

  • I'd rather play Parcheesi.

Classic is amazing. Like, holy cow it's so dang good.

Just beat Inkling's and got to 9.0, but unfortunately had to use a ticket to do it. Gonna try to do it without continues at some point.

Haven't tried Online or WoL yet. Gonna tackle WoL tomorrow and try online Sunday, I'm thinking. TBH I'm not sure if the online is as bad as some are saying. I'm not seeing too many complaints about it on places I go to, and a streamer I watch played just fine. Sounds like it's gonna be a lot like Splatoon where it's weirdly good for some and bad for others.

I think we're going to get a shocking FPS rep in this patch of DLC.

Either Doomguy, Master Chief, or Tracer. Leaning toward Tracer or Doomguy.

Of the two I'd way prefer Doomguy. Belongs to a franchise that is both an SNES staple and has the greatest legacy among those of its genre. That and Doomguy would have a lot more to work with.

Is it just me or is Wii Fit Trainer really good now?
I hope. She was fun in the last game but it seems they buffed her a lot.

And people are complaining about K.Rool and Ridley. Piranha Plant had to wait longer than both of them.

Pft, Tracer would disappoint me beyond words.

But y'know...
whatever makes people happy I guess.
My horses are all out of this race.

Overwatch really would feel like a contemporary pick, especially since, in my honest opinion, it's not even that special.
But that's the thing with contemporary picks.

They're popular, man. However you'd define special, that game has a massive fan following, and despite its following, far more than classic Doom or Doom 2016 does. I wouldn't be surprised if Tracer was on the table for the selection.

Im wondering what challenges have Mii costume pieces behind them and if that's the only way to get them. I know the Classic 9.9 challenge has the crown. Anyone know if the online challenges have any costume pieces on them?

Can you unlock Mii Fighters by creating a Mii or do you have to go through the normal unlock process with them? Because I kinda like their default looks in this game.

Well, I finally picked up the game...

I got home at 8:00, and I forced myself to stop playing now since I have to get up at 6 am tomorrow. ****. So that was about 5 hours of playing.

I...set the music. On most of the stages. I'm not done yet.

I'm slightly annoyed there's no "set all to zero" button. Whose idea was it to have practivally every Mario/General song at 1% on every stage? I'm cramping up trying to deactivate all of them. I'm glad I spent the weekend planning, or else this would take even longer... Maybe by tomorrow night I'll be sone and then can actually start playing.

Next task - get used to a pro controller.

I’d unironically love for Teemo (or any LoL rep) to get in, bring it on!

LoL’s popularity, influence in the industry, and uniqueness in Smash (MOBA, PC rep, Western rep, etc) can easily justify a character imo.

Remember when people said he was going to be bad?

Remember when we all thought the crown was going to be bad?

Croccy Boi just can't be stopped.
I'm surprised he ended up being as good as he is, even if the general pre-release consensus was "yeah he's pretty good"
Crown is laggy as ****, but once it's out there you pretty much have to respect it. It even ignores a fully charged Samus/Mewtwo/Corrin neutral b.

Decided to do a mock up of some possible alternate colours for Joker based on the other party members Ryuji, Ann, Yosuke, and Makoto..but I didn't wanna do all eight since I'm tired..the last three would have been of the remaining party members Futaba, Haru, and then either Akechi or Persona 2 Joker (a villain that coincidentally shares the same name).
These are what I'd like to see though similarly to how Shulk has his Party Members as Colours and Lucina has other girls from Awakening for her colours.

This is a thumbnail, click it for full size image.

..I also noticed I forgot to edit the hair to be more blue for the Yosuke alt..

Could someone maybe clarify this? Apparently there's a warning on the back of the Smash Ultimate box saying it could cause "cancer and reproductive harm". The topic creator put a picture in this thread:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/234547-super-smash-bros-ultimate/77279982

The thread got locked for some reason. I was thinking of asking for a Switch and Ultimate for Christmas but now I don't know and I'm kind of concerned...

Oh my god is World of Light meaty. I’ve been playing straight sense 1:00 (with a small break to cook dinner) and i’m not even at the first Galeem Battle. I’m about two thirds done with the first map.

Its there, but the Website beneath it is for a California Government site and, quite honestly, it seems like California puts these warnings on nearly EVERYTHING even things that have a .00000000000000000000000000001% chance of causing Cancer or Health Issues..its a common joke that everything causes cancer in California for this reason.

Setting the music was a pain in the ***, but it’s something that has/had to be done

Finally someone understands, lol. I get Mario is the biggest franchise for this game, but 80 songs and like 12 stages... RIP actual play time.:skull:

Ever been to California? They put that warning on everything there. Everything.

I wouldn't worry. Just don't eat the cartridge or anything.

Guys i got smash ultimate now been playing it for over 6 hours , ive got 2 problems i notice with one kind of funny and one that is realy starting to get anoying.

ok first the funny one, guys go in Mob smash play Century Smash , and when the match starts try to press pause at any time , you will notice a big glitch that the timmer is STILL going , im not sure what is with the multiman/mob battles having strange glitches in smash games but i found it funny.

now... im unsure if this is smash bros ultimate or my controler but... this is getting anoying , when i press right it somtimes goes to the left , more then 60% of my losses was from my character going the wrong way.

is anyone else having the 2 issues i mention? the 2 one is very anoying , if its my controler im unsure why it dosnt show up in other games.
