Oh yeah, I remember when they announced that. Still kind of vaguely want the game, but there's other stuff I want more at the moment.

I was expecting WAY more comments here after today's smash stuff :/ especially from Spark. It's unsettling!

Lucas is great though. Definitely buffed. His PK freeze actually hits things now :0

Here is what is happening, ILO, if you don't mind spoilers:
The Smash Bros mini-Direct thing that happened today just revealed Roy (from Melee and from Fire Emblem) and Ryu (a Street Fighter character) as DLC characters, both of which became available to purchase immediately after the end of the video.

Oh my god I want Lucas right nowwww, but we still haven't got any internet set up at the new house. Unfortunately, it'll be a few days before I can return to posting regularly! But yeah, Lucas looks great and I am seriously considering trying to main/semi-main(?) him once I can purchase him.

This other stuff revealed is really neat too! I am kind of shocked that they decided to reveal the third and fourth DLC characters literally minutes before they were released, but it's actually pretty fun to have them come out of nowhere like this. As a person who has played neither Melee nor any of the games that either of these characters originally appeared in, I am not as exited as I might otherwise be, but they really do look cool.

Whoops!

Okay so E3 related leaks started predictably early, though some of the leaks were already pre-leaked. And Sakurai's video basically outlined that two retro characters are now available on the eshop for purchase
(no spoilers because who cares)
Lucas and Roy (not the koopaling). Yay? Not buying Roy tho :p
There's also a purchasable Dreamland stage (not worth it IMO), and a bunch of Mii costumes (including Inklings, and Megaman.Exe and Zero, which look cool, but also probably not worth it.)

He outlined that all Smash characters will have Amiibo eventually (cool), and that a new wave with G&W, Duck Hunt, ROB (<3, but give me an actual ROB plz) and Falco are on the horizon, and also the Mii fighter amiibos.

And then finally, a new (but previously leaked) character from a well-known non-nintendo franchise is now available, view at your discretion, though you're better off watching the video (sans comments and related video, because of spoilers):
Spoiler:

Ryu from Street Fighter. They put a LOT of love into it! Very interesting character.

So yeah that's all for now.

So, apparently Roy has been partially de-clone-ified. He's got mostly the same specials as before aside from a different neutral B, but many of his regular attacks are changed up significantly, with very different animations and effects from Marth's corresponding moves. It's weird, looking at him in action... he's like, significantly less of a clone than Dr. Mario or Dark Pit, but still kind of clone-ish. Like, maybe 55-60% "marth with different properties", and 40-45% "individual character"? So yeah, I'm more in favor of his inclusion than I was previously. I still think he's a somewhat silly addition to the game, but he looks like he'll play quite differently from Marth.

Can I, can I, uhh...

Can I formally request that I swap out Lucina for Roy? Neutral I still can't really appreciate the 3 clones. They're reskins with slightly different percentages and/or hitboxes, and they're pretty subtle about it. I like that they exist, it's just... don't call them new Characters, Sakurai? I probably would buy Roy only it'll increase the odds of me facing yet another swordsman when battling CPUs. Snore!

I wanna keep playing Lucas though Very Happy He was the only one of my mains in Brawl who wasn't nerfed in SB4, sans Rob who I'm terrible with. And his specials really are different from Ness's custom specials - again, they're subtle: They play similarly, but are just better.


EDIT: Roxy was right. That homestuck update...
Why is everything SO WONDERFUL

Haha, I've got all three of 'em, suckas~~~
Octi, it's the second batch of DLC. Roy and Lucas return, and Ryu from Street Fighter joins Smash.

Lucas feels the same. He was my main in Brawl, and he will always be the tiniest badass who ever up smashed an up smash.
I don't know what they did to Roy, who I was never very good with, but he's just really accessible this time around. I was really surprised with the ease I was able to kick around the CPU's. Everything about him just feels unrestrained and powerful, and he's great to just pick up and play this time around.
I DON'T FUCKING GET RYU, I'VE NEVER PLAYED A STREET FIGHTER GAME SO I DONT KNOW ANY OF THE SPECIAL BUTTON COMBOS. AND ALSO HES JUST REALLY WEIRD AND BULKY-FEELING AND THERES PROBABLY COOL STUFF U CAN DO WITH HIM BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW

I always mained Pokemon for some reason

Actually, that's not saying much because I mained Pikachu then picked up Lucario a little while ago.

Given how little I play, I'm not entirely sure if any of the DLC is worth spending money on, really. Ryu sounds interesting, but it's a bit of an investment...

Ryu is okay really! I can't combo with anything in Smash so it doesn't matter to me if I'm using him badly; I'm not gonna be winning matches anyway. But his special moves are okay. I still can't get the hang of his Focus Attack and its cancelling, but his powerful up attack thingy is fine 80% of the time (if you're coming into it from a dash, then its a quick down and forward-down, but I can't do it in the air yet), his twisty thing is mostly fine as long as you remember to not attack until the buttons are entered, his blue pew pew pew is easy enough most of the time, and I can do his red one but sometimes it becomes blue. I'm still not sure what the deal with the light/heavy attacks are, none of mine end up bring the middle type. His attacks are pretty powerful though, and he doesn't have many weaknesses. I expect some sort of nerf in the future and an expansion of the window for combo button presses.

I wonder if we'll be finding out about the next Pokemon game sooner or later? One thing is for sure; whatever game it is, they're gonna announce it with at least one new Mega. I wonder who'll get the lucky treatment? (I hope a Kalos or Unova mon)


EDIT: Unrelated to anything, I'm beginning to wonder if Solar1s *changed for avoiding search results* is, like, the anti-me? Gosh that guy/girl/whatever gets on my nerves sometimes >:I
In regards to why; I can respect that people can have varying opinions on whether or not reverse racism or reverse discrimination exists, but I will be upfront and say if all your arguments fall back on *airquotes* "society" being a single cohesive thing and the be-all, end-all decider of every moral debate, then I strongly suggest you go complain "to society" and see how well that works. Yeesh.

So, E3:

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes:
Apparently A Link Between Worlds's version of Four Swords/Four Swords Adventure. Except this time there are just three Links, one for each Golden Goddess. Apparently coming this fall, which means they've had this one in the works for a while now.

Star Fox Zero:
Star Fox is getting a new game for Wii U. While I don't keep up with the series that much, it does look pretty. And apparently the Arwings can turn into chicken-like walker forms now? Don't worry, the Landmaster's still coming back. Slated for this holiday season, so apparently they're counting on it to be a big seller.

Hyrule Warriors Legends:
Hyrule Warriors is getting ported to 3DS with some new playable characters. I see Tetra, and the text mentions the King of Hyrule, but unfortunately I also see Tingle. This one's not coming out until the start of next year.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force:
So the good news is that Nintendo's acknowledging the existence of the Metroid franchise again. The bad news is that this is definitely a spinoff: it's a co-op 3DS title that has you playing as Galactic Federation soldiers. It's also got that Blast Ball thing as a secondary game mode. I'll reserve judgement for now, but Metroid really needs something more, and soon.

Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam:
Mario & Luigi meets Paper Mario? Hell yes! And this one's definitely got dialog, unlike Sticker Star. Apparently the Paper Mario universe exists within a book inside the Mario & Luigi universe, and all the Paper Mario characters end up coming out and causing general mayhem. Sadly, this one's not coming out until spring, but I am definitely hyped.

Super Mystery Dungeon:
Like I was going to skip this one. I haven't been able to keep up too well with what's already been announced, but here's what's on the site. We've got 20 options for you and your partner: the 18 starters, Pikachu, and Riolu. All 720 Pokémon (read: everything but Volcanion) are in the game, which is apparently the biggest Mystery Dungeon yet. The plot involves Pokémon getting petrified. Get your wallets ready for this holiday season.
