So I guess we're not interested in representing Nintendo's rich and varied history any more? We just want to add characters who are in everything anyway, parasprite characters no one wanted, and Pac-Man, is that it?

Shame too, you almost had my money.

We still have a few months until the game is out. Hoping for unlockable Palutena and Pac-Man
>> No. 131245
Sakurai seemed to be dropping massive hints about Palutena, what with her being missing in Pit's final smash and the "Pseudo-Palutena" parasprite. Pac-Man is just a fan request since Namco is involved. The closest thing to a hint is that Galaga appears to be an assist trophy which confirms that Namco related IPs can make cameos in the game.

Which were the "le trole" characters? Wii Fit trainer? (I believe she/he is a replacement for ROB) Villager? (AC rep has been requested forever) Megaman? (Nintendo/Sakurai wanted him)

Do you mean Pikmin or something, cause I never saw pac-man in it.

All of the new characters have been amazing, but with just about every game, series, etc. People love to complain when everything is not to their liking.
I mean hell, you have custom moves, new game types, OP characters that finally got a huge nerf. I say they have done a good job. Besdies, isn't sonic and megaman part of Nintendo's history? Let's see, a crap load of games about sonic have been on with Nintendo, and seeing as they making the winter Olympic games with sonic and mairo, sonic is pretty much nintendo's best friend. And megaman, it wasn't till megaman 8 that he was put on something besides the famicom/NES
Yeah, if you ask me, those 2 sound like a huge part of nintendo's history, and sakurai wanted them in.

And knowing them, and from what is up right now, we only have 30 players. They still haven't said anything about Ness, Jigglypuff, Captain falcon, and those were all in the very first game.

Falcon and Ness will be back, too popular.
But Jiggs... Does she still make her retarded cameos in the newer episodes of the anime? I think that would be the main factor if she returns.
I mained JP but I could totally see her not coming back, we already have so many Pokemon in the game already.

Ganon may come back but only if he has a tweaked moveset.
Falco might comeback as-is.
Wolf and Game&Watch is a toss up.
Metaknight maybe not. Got so much hate for being good, Nintendo logic; instead of tweaking him to make him more balanced they'll just remove him all together.
Ice Climbers maybe not. 3DS limitations, just guessing.

Nah, I like when people agree with me.

And yeah, Cpt. F is fucking amazing in brawl and melee. I guess the person is thinking "LOL falcon punch, let's spam it, he's a joke character." If you know how to play him, he's scary.


Ice climbers might actually make it in, seeing as enimes from their games are still in, some goes for Cpt F as goroh is still an assit trophy.

Apparently Falcon is actually pretty low tier in brawl
>Captain Falcon is currently ranked 34th on the tier list as a result of the nerf of his attack, speed and KO-ing power from Melee, low shieldstun, poor hitboxes for his aerials (making safe approaches nearly impossible, especially when considering his lack of projectiles), the impact of the new Brawl physics (which arguably hit Captain Falcon the hardest; less hitstun and the loss of L-canceling result in drastically fewer, weaker combos, and a less effective dashdance and inability to moonwalk give him even fewer options)

But nobody cares about the Brawl metagame, anyway. Melee and Project M are where it's at.

I'm not hating on Nintendo, but when the last game they made that actually wasn't a complete rehash gameplay-wise (KI:U, and even that had a lot of sections reminiscent of Star Fox) was released more than a decade after Metroid Prime (and Eternal Darkness doesn't count. They just published that.), I think that it's silly to call them varied.

I love Nintendo, but the majority of their franchises just don't change too much at all, even if new installments have one or two additions. And I'm not saying that they should, but you need to actually look at their releases in the '00s and onward if you think that they've had a lot of variety recently.

There's a lot more to Nintendo than Mario and Pokemon. But no one buys anything besides Mario and Pokemon. Pokemon, Animal Crossing and New Super Mario Bros are pretty much the only actual rehashes Nintendo has. And even then, calling them a rehash is iffy.

That list just proves your point more.
EBA, Dillion and W101 were all just published by Nintendo.

Pushmo is great, but it's just a puzzle platformer so basically Mario with puzzles.

Wii Fit isn't exactly a game I would herald for anything unless you wanted to discuss what ruined Nintendo.

Then we have Chibi-Robo, a game from the Metroid Prime gen that got a Japan exclusive sequel, rehashed Wii version and then finally a worldwide sequel which is just a camera tech demo.
I know the character has been requested for Smash and I don't doubt it would be a awesome character but is it really the best representative of a Nintendo franchise?

He's about as mid tier as you can get.

No, both the Wii and Wii Fit ruined Nintendo because the money was just flooding in and they thought they could just sit on their hands and do nothing yet still rack in the green while riding the roller coaster.

Possibly real character select screen leaked. Not all the characters in the game are in this image.

I'm not implying anything when I say I don't have a positive win-ratio against most the people I play when I go into the city, some of who play this game for money in-place of an actual job.
Nor am I implying any thing when I say I would still probably rock your shit up and down the block like you got hit by a truck.

>I just know some of the most spammed characters to win games were wolf, metaknight, and pit.
By what metric did you determine this?

>And god do those 3 need a huge nerf.
Again, Pit isn't that great. He's slow, predictable, has a shitty recovery and only two good kill moves.
Wolf is about on par with Fox, just requires a different playstyle. Both Fox and Wolf being mid, a little above Pit. Wolf according to the supposed leak image isn't coming back anyway.

No, it really doesn't mean anything. Unless you were in some of these tournaments and have some trophies to show how badass you are.
I could had played street fighter with dango, doesn't really mean anything.

We are talking tiers in brawl. This kinda falls back to the whole "no items, fox only, final destination thing"
Remember how when people wanted to win, they just picked kirby or pikachu, and spammed b down.

Same concept as in those 3. Pit and meta knight were nothing but spam, but with them, you could lock somepony in a combo for days. I'm looking at that stupid metaknight move. Wolf is not as much spam as the others, but still he needs a huge nerf. You could just pick him up, just land a few smash attacks, and win.

Like, let me compare this to another fighting game with somepony cheap as hell. Peacock from skullgirls. Yeah, she's annoying, and spammy. But you can beat her if you time your moves just right. Though, that's not gonna stop the other person from just using 3 moves and finally beating you.

And I take it you never played against a good pit player. One of my friends loves the Kid icuras series, and mained him.
He has a great recovery (Which is why they changed it in ssb4. You say he doesn't need a nerf, but yet the nerfed him a lot from ssbb) You could always get back in if you flew off. His dash, side a, and side b and up a can fuck you up. And that's all he needs to kill you. Trust me, I know how pit plays. He can be fucking scary.

Though the whole point of this, is people who try to tourney, and pick characters like pit, fox, meta knight, etc.
I could win against any of them with the lowest of the tier. Point is, tiers are stupid, and the meta is pointless. People will pick the ops characters and win. I.E. fighting game flow charts Novice vs Pro.

I think you're just mad that game balance is hard, and Smash Bros is not a balanced game. The fact is, if a Ganondorf player and a Marth player are both evenly matched in skill (and actual skill is more than just spamming the same attacks), the Marth player is going to win a majority of the time. Ganon is just too heavilty gimped in Brawl.

I'm not even mad. I'm just saying there are op characters, and then we have tounry tards who only pick those characters cause they know they win games. Tiers are literally nothing.
I can use the weakest character and still wipe the floor with him or her.

Though there are some stats to who is op, and who is shit. Like you said, ganon is gimped. Same with meta knight and how he's op. There's a reason why people ban him.

Point is, which we have deteriorate from so long ago. Cpt falcon is not a joke character, and can easily kick ass. You just got to learn the combos.

Little more complicated than that but I know Wolf players are happy with how you're putting them on a pedestal.

You can't bring up that game when trying to make a point.
Two different versions of the game exist and within those two versions you can have different playstyles.

I'm not Nick Fury but I still don't trust you. You have no idea how to play Pit at a high competitive level.
Competitive level playing being a little more complex than simply playing with no items, selecting FD and using three moves.

>Though the whole point of this, is people who try to tourney, and pick characters like pit, fox, meta knight, etc.
People don't pick Pit or Fox and expect to win a tourney, but go on.

Again, who cares a shit about pro, we are talking about tiers.
I could become pro with shitty characters if I want. Pro means nothing and tiers mean nothing. Captain falcon isn't gonna get removed cause he is a "joke character" or cause he is low tier and whatever. I seen people love Cpt. falcon, and kick ass with him. If Nintendo removed a character cause pros don't use them or the tiers suck, I would cri.

Why can't I bring up skullgirls, or any other fight game? Hell, I could bring up an idea of something else completely, as long as the same idea is in play.

Ok, you can talk like a 8 year old playing halo. Cool.
My point still stand that you probably never played a good pit player. I have, and have had my ass handed by him and have also destroyed him

God...I can't think of a way to describe how stubborn you are with saying pit isn't op. When he came out, everypony made a point of how he has the best recovery. That is not a opinion, that is a fact. As long as he doesn't get smashed off the screen, he can always get back. Why else would Nintendo change it?

And if you get hit...guess what http://www.smashbros.com/wii/en_us/howto/basic/basic03.html
Now learn this before I have to spam it 50 times.

>1. Non-kill move.
>2. Easy to dodge.
>3. Leaves you open.
And I'll take "What are combos" for 600
You don't just spam it to win. If we were talking about meta knight, then yes. Spam b, get bitches.
All you need to know is learn when to side b, then go into another attack.

Again, I went into tournaments. I didn't play with pros like you say. But I know how high level pits play, and low levels.

I love how you are attacking me, and not about the game. Nice defense start.
I know this, cause I play the "Low tier" characters. I have many mains I used, like 7 or 8.

Yeah, I brought up the meta to say it's pointless and means fucking nothing. OK, so a few guys in a basement or something read up all the stats for captain falcon, and found up that all his moves will put him rank X on this scale. Who the fuck cares? Captain falcon is still a scary guy to go against. His smash moves alone can rape you.

Besides, did you even watch the nestest vid for ssb4? They said they were changing Pit's up b move. THEY FUCKING SHOWED IT IN ACTION.

You do know that the shittiest of characters in fighting games can pull off combos right?
You do know that the relative ease (or lack thereof), amount of damage and situational-ness of pulling off a combo is what makes a character good right?

Oh, I get it now, tiers are made by the pros, and if the pros only play their mains, by logic, they are the best. So if no one played snake, he would be low tier.

I'm not deluded. You're just a tourney tard. Low tiers don't mean a thing. It's how well you are at playing.
In this point, Captain falcon is great. and not a joke character. Sure, his stats may not be as powerful as others. I.E. fox's up smash. But Captain falcon can kick ass. You can't just spam his falcon punch like everypony does. Hell, don't even touch that. Just run in, a up, b up, and then do some air hits.

Hey, you may have agreed with me, but then you brought up the tier and started to say he was bad, and only a handful of characters are good.

Joking? No. Mocking you cause you are stubborn and bull headed? Yes. You are a tourney tard, simple as that.

I mean, look, you are talking about pros and what not. You know what, humor me. Show me a pro pit player. *Shrug* I want to see what you got cause you are so in and deep with the Smash bros scene.

Besides, you are missing my point. About the whole people want to play spamming character. Pit is one of them, which is why he is getting nerfed. The core aspects of what made pit a cheap fighter/spammer is what is at call here. NO TIERS, NO PROS, just spam.
I never once talked about tiers till you brought it up.
I was making a mocking joke at the people who pick spamming op characters. Of them, pit was one. meta knight too. Meta knight was so stupid.

And see, just like you said, any shitty characters can pull of combos and ring out somepony. Which means Pit can take out anypony, pro or not. If somepony were to main him and be pro, he could do well. But I am talking about pit is good, and same goes to Captain falcon. While you are busy stroking your e-peen cause you played with pros and their tiers say they are shit characters or something.

I don't even know what you are going off about now.
All I know and all I have been saying is pit is a spamming character. The vid shows it, right? BUT he can be played to the point where he can kick ass.
It's 2 different levels. Like I said before, novice Vs pro.
You have the Novice who sees what he can do (Long recovery, can shoot across the map, shield to reflect, spinning attack dash move, etc) and they think about how they are invincible. Then you got somepony of pro logic who knows when to use them at the right time.

I don't give a shit how many pros you have played with, or how you play. Pit is a good characters, even if some pros made a list saying who is bad or good. T

>In this point, Captain falcon is great. and not a joke character.
Then how do you explain
>Captain Falcon is currently ranked 34th on the tier list as a result of the nerf of his attack, speed and KO-ing power from Melee, low shieldstun, poor hitboxes for his aerials (making safe approaches nearly impossible, especially when considering his lack of projectiles), the impact of the new Brawl physics (which arguably hit Captain Falcon the hardest; less hitstun and the loss of L-canceling result in drastically fewer, weaker combos, and a less effective dashdance and inability to moonwalk give him even fewer options), fairly poor Out of Shield options due his very short grab range and mediocre range in his jab, predictable recovery, low traction, and poor overall tournament results, resulting in bad match-ups, only a few of which are in his favor, and some of which are as low as 25/75, although many mid tiers are only slightly disadvantageous.
Can you provide a substantial argument against this besides, "Lol he doesn't suck you just have to know how to use him"?

In regular casual play, then sure, you can probably easily win with whoever you want. But take a bit of time to actually git gud, play against other people who got gud, and you'll see what the tiers mean. Some characters are simply more advantageous against other characters. It's not a matter of playing them right, it's an implicit fact of the character. Meta Knight is as high-tiered as he is not because he has spammable moves, but because he's fast, powerful and has multiple recovery options.
>> No. 131383
That said, I feel you should at least check out the competitive scene. They aren't actually "Fox only final destination". They do legitimately love underdogs. You could play Captain Falcon in the brawl meta and people wouldn't make fun of you. It's not impossible to win, you're just gimping yourself severely.

Of course as I said earlier, the brawl meta sucks anyway and everypony's moved on to Project M.

And you have all missed the point.
I never once said anything about pro's, or tiers
It' was all this fucking guy >>131388
I don't care about pros, I just like playing SSB.

And when I have played, against both pro people and people new to it, I have seen one thing. People picking spamming characters, that is fucking it. Like what they hell are you guys even going on about now? I don't even care about it.

All I was literally saying was Pit can be a spammy character, and people tend to pick him for that. God. Like holy hell. Understand what I am saying before trying to bash me.

I have done tournaments, I have seen people in action who could go pro. I know all about it. Here, let me just simplify this to 2 posts. My main, and the side one that started off cause cpbu wanted to be all smug and tlak about the pros he plays with.


My main point was a mocking post at how people see character like pit, and metaknight and think "If I spam these buttons, I win" They same fucking idea with pickachu and kirby in melee.
That is it. People picked pikacu in melee and spammed b down. Now people pick metaknight in brawl and spam b. And that's what those characters are know for. That is fucking it.

My other sub-post, after you guy all brought up meta is this
Who gives a shit about the meta. I don't care what the ranking is at all. Each character is good in their own ways. I honstly don't give a shit about tiers or any numbers. All I care about is what I need to do, to kill somepony.
For example, Samus, in melee, my main course of action was to run into somepony, and a down. They nerfed this heavily in brawl. So then I moved on to combing her b and side b. I don't care if she went down tiers, I still mained her and kicked ass.

But again, my main post was about how pit was seen as a spammy character, and mocking the people who pick him to try and win games. I see noobs pick up the game, go to him, and just reflect everything and use b, then just glide back in.

>>131388
Dude, you brought up out of nowhere that you played with the best people, and how you know tiers, and everything else about pros and tournaments. Either you are tourney tard, or just somepony who is really smug.
Cool, you know pros. Again, I don't really give a shit unless you won a trophy or something.



>>131383
See, at least this anon fucking gets it. Thank you for that.
Like I said, I have done tournaments and what not. Gone my mains, kicked butt, won some cash. Was fun. I mean, I am the guy who picks the underdogs and gets really good at them. Like I said before, I was making a simple joke at the meta game and spammy characters, and how people will pick them just to try and win. Then people had to over react and go all crazy on me.

I never once said anything about pros, just that I have seen people play with meta knight and pit, just cause they can win with spam.

I 100% understand what you're saying. You're saying you loves to go to the zoo and a lion can be as cool as a lioness, meanwhile I'm a zoologist and telling you the lioness is actually cooler because it's the hunter and provides food for the pack while you just yammer on about how every dopey friend and acquaintance you know loves lions more because of their manes. None of you actually know shit about that family of animals. I'm fine with that, as long as that makes you happy, just don't go spouting off shit like the lion is the hunter though when it clearly isn't.

>I honstly don't give a shit about tiers or any numbers. All I care about is what I need to do, to kill somepony.
Those numbers are what make it so that you can kill people.
Certain characters have a easier time and better numbers for killing characters, this is where tiers come from.

>Dude, you brought up out of nowhere that you played with the best people
Well you brought up that you were getting wrecked by a shitty character and you asked how I knew he was shitty:
>>131338
>Really?

>Cool, you know pros. Again, I don't really give a shit unless you won a trophy or something.
You obliviously do. You mentioned I played with pros three times in this one post, more times then I actually said i did in the whole thread. No, I don't have trophy and at most tournaments they don't give those out because it's a waste of time and money.
But you wanna know who else doesn't have a trophy? Pit players. Sagemoon won once and no other reputable players were even there.
So lets play connect the dots here.
The best player of a specific character won at a tournament where there were no better players that play better characters but has never won at a tourney where said better players were...

If it's one complaint I have, it's the humanoid Pokémon characters.

We had Mewtwo in melee, Lucario in brawl (and is returning for smash 4) and now greninja.

Because the 3DS and WU versions are identical gameplay/character-wise you need to take into account the limitations of the 3DS, I doubt the system could handle dynamically changing her appearance.
So she either wouldn't change at all or would change to one other look for all her special moves, which would probably be the same one she had for Max Anarchy. So no side boob.

My guess is over all the years of people running up to him and demanding characters to get into Smash and everypony shitting on him constantly and saying he makes bad games or how they could make a better game then him has made him act and come off a certain way.
Like being pissed and saying no to every retarded thing somepony says could be perceived as being cocky.

As long as characters don't live forever like in Brawl, the general combat being a little slower isn't that bad. They balance each other out.

Which means he probably won't be playable. Toon Link gets replaced on the Spirit Tracks stage when he is played, what would happen when Ridley is played?
I mean I guess they could replace him with Mecha Ridley, a different color that players wouldn't be able to select or maybe a different character from the Metroid universe/another Nintendo franchise, but it's more likely that he just won't be playable.
Although they could be super paraspriting and that shadow over the Metroid stage could have nothing to do with Ridley or him being a boss, could be a complete red herring.


Hello and welcome. Today we are coming directly to you.
We have a Smash Brothers video that we would like to show today.
[Video plays showing the "Ridley shadow scene"]
Do you remember this from our previous video when we mentioned other boss characters like the Yellow Devil appearing on the stage?
[Ridley lands, montage starts of Ridley wooping people on the stage plays. Character announcement background pops up behind him with some phrase "Ridley roars onto the field!" or whatever.]
The highly requested Metroid character joins Super Smash Brothers.
[Plays epic Ridley theme as they show footage of him fighting on other stages. Then cuts to some dramatic scene back on the Metroid stage and Kraid bursts out of the bottom of the background.]
This is Kraid, he's really big compared to the player characters. Too big to be playable. ((HUEHUEHUE))
[The fighters keep fighting each other on the stage as Kraids claws wave around on both sides of the stage.]
These players shouldn't ignore the boss.
[He lifts one claw and slaps the stage upside down, all the fighters fall to their death.]
You need to attack his hands before he flips the stage.
[Now showing the fighters attacking the hands and Kraid doing stun animations every time his hand raising is interrupted.]
You can also climb on his hands and use them to your advantage.
[Shows players walking, fighting and hanging off his hands.]
He can be defeated if you deal enough damage.
[Show Kraid slowly fall back down after being attacked. Then que up some other teaser.]

That's just apart of my Nintendo Direct fan fiction I right, the next part involves Iwata and Reggie making out but I'll omit that part here.

Oh yeah, here's the 3DS review.

Some retard from the ESRB who probably now got shitcanned leaked most of the roster and content for the game.

Most of the returning cast doesn't surprise me aside from ROB. Unsure why they brought back Dr. Mario, guessing so Mario can keep the water canon but return the cape to the game.

Most of the new comers don't surprise me because of previous leaks except for Duck Hunt, really sad we didn't get to see some of his gameplay although it's speculated he's a Olimar clone.
Dark Pit is retarded, they had so many good characters they could have picked from Uprising.

Still one more first party character to be revealed, not everypony was unlocked because this person had All Star mode locked.
I won't be upset if it's Chorus Men but I hope it's somepony I wouldn't have expected like Duck Hunt.
