Wait, WHAT? Who on Earth tried to make the direct delay into Isaac speculation, and how? What could have been their reasoning?
Nintendo announced there was a slight change in the September 2018 Direct due to the earthquake. What that change turned out to be was not mentioning Cities Skylines: Natural Disasters.

Hate the whole arguments that have come and went over the years when people start making made up """""""""""rules""""""""'''' about the roster that big Daddy Sakurai steps on and crushes with every new Smash game that comes out.
It's like the receding hairline of petty arguments, every time Sakurai breaks a """rule""" they retreat back to another made up """rule""" to start all over again.
I'll show you what I mean.

>There will never be a 3rd party character in Smash ever!
Snake happens.

>Ok well, Sonic will never be in Smash ever!
Sonic happens.
>Megaman will never be in Smash because Capcom doesn't care about the franchise anymore!
Megaman waltzes in.
>Pac Man will never be in Smash because...reasons
Pac Man gets in.
>Characters who were cut in previous games won't come back!
Mewtwo, Lucas and Roy all return
>A 3rd party can never get more than one rep because this is mainly a Nintendo crossover game.
Ryu kicks in the door.
>Smash will never have a character from a game that has never been on Nintendo consoles!
Cloud shocks the world (some one off cameo in a KH DS game doesn't count).
>Well Smash will never a character from a M rated series in it because this is a T rated game!
Bayonetta gets wicked
>Ridleys too big!
Ridley hits the big time.
>King K Rool's irrelevant!
King K Rool jumps aboard.
>3rd parties can never have more than 1 character from a series in Smash because....?
Ken gets in.
>There will never be a character from Persona in Smash because Persona is seen a Playstation series and not a Nintendo one! ;( (I mean Cloud and Snake broke this one years ago but...)
Joker steals the spotlight
>Banjo and Kazooie will NEVER EVER EVER get into Smash because a) it's a Western game series b) it's owned by a rival console manufacturer (Microsoft) and c) it's a dead irrelevant franchise that will never see the light of day again!
;)
>Well Cooking Mama will never get into Smash because Smash is only for big third parties like SEGA or Square Enix or Namco or Konami or Microsoft!
S O O N
Personally I've never heard anything resembling any of these, except from people who complain about people claiming them.

I saw people doing this a lot in the comments on Billybo10k's video when he broke the news about the earthquake delaying the direct. It was pretty sad, considering Isaac was his most wanted character.

Who else remembers the chair theory? Or the Spetember 2018 Direct's earthquake delay hinting at Isaac?
That is actually funny. People take anything and turn it into speculation fuel.

I still can't get over the Ridley's shadow speculation disaster of 2014. People were using mathematics to take measurements and come to the conclusion that the shadow shown in the direct near Pikachu belonged to a playable character and not a boss.

When Isabelle was revealed, I remember seeing a few people complaining she wasn't an echo. Why would someone prefer a clone instead of a new character?
Speaking of echo perception, I never understood why people wanted Sephiroth to be Cloud's echo, and still don't. Their fighting styles are completely different.

I think they were complaining that she wasn't CLASSIFIED as an echo because she is so very similar to Villager. That is, they were complaining that she wasn't unique enough.

I remember complaining about Isabelle a lot. It wasn't that people wanted her to be a clone, it was that she was already deathly similar to Villager but was classified in the same category that other unique fighters like King K. Rool and Simon were. It didn't seem right that they handed us a clone-ish fighter but called her something unique.

"Zero Suit Samus should be removed because she's irrelevent, her heels are stupid, Sakurai made up her moveset, and only nerds cared about Samus outside of the suit before Brawl came out."

I can't get over how ridiculous this is.
The heels are still stupid though.

"We need to nerf/ban this character now before it's too late."

I'd rather wait until a character actually causes problems before being too heavy handed with requested nerfs and bans. I think the Hero situation is a good example of this.

I think it was part and parcel of the salt surrounding her inclusion and that direct what with its delays and wild Isaac earthuake theories

Her being a semiclone rather than a full on echo would have meant that Sakurai and his team spent more time developing her (though what exactly constitutes an echo remains a mystery)

To anyone who didn't want her, this, in their eyes, would have meant more time 'wasted' on her which could've been spent on characters that they wanted. And a lot of people were assuming her to be an echo, so were surprised and angry when they found out she wasn't one

Assumption was that echoes were freebies that could be produced relatively quickly (people were probably expecting more than we ended up getting), while original/semi-original fighter places on the roster was real prime estate, what with Sakurai warning us at the start not to expect too many newcomers


At least I think that's what they were thinking

As of right now it's been a month and most people still hold on to their Hero complaints. While he might not be dominating tournaments people still have a lot of problems with him. I wouldn't say it's TOO ridiculous.

Samus is a cheap character because the moveset encourages a fighting style based in avoiding your opponent

Someone recently tried to tell me that since Kirby was important in the WoL cutscene, "most people" would be fine if Kirby didn't get another newcomer since it's a sign of major recognition.
WoL is only a """"""""Kirby game"""""""" for the first two to three minutes of the entire thing (i.e. only if you suck that bad at it). You get Mario after that short tutorial area, and he's required before you can go anywhere else. So people were just tinfoil hatting about Kirby for basically nothing. (And he hardly even appears in any of the cutscenes later on after that, it's all Mario)

"DOOM SLAYER IS TOO VIOLENT FOR SMASH!!!!"

Ummm

:ultbayonetta::ultjoker::ultridley::ultsnake:

Sakurai also breaks these so called fan rules all the time AND Injustice managed to make Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Raiden work toning them down you know characters from Mortal Kombat, one of the most violent games that kickstarted the ESRB rating. If they can do that I don't see why Smash can't do the same here as well.

Yeah. I still remember when the WoL intro was first shown and a bunch of people were like "Sakurai made a new Kirby game lol" or "Kirby always get everything". :facepalm: Kirby's new grand adventure is just 4 spirit battles and it's over.

Also, I think Hat Blonde Ryu sounds better.

Not to say a MK character couldn't be in Smash, because they definitely could, but I don't think that's a valid comparison. DC is notoriously gritty and violent as **** and has been for 20 years.

So why is it then MK vs. DC Universe was rated T may I ask?

And Injustice too? Otherwise if DC is as violent and gritty as they are why weren't those rated M?

And they can still tone it down just like Bayonetta. Mk is a fighting game WITH extreme gore, its not all there is to it.
