...and I am a little happy to say this time they are not fooling around. They had me going, too--with their ridiculous choices for new peeps, new features and all, but two seconds on the main menu and you know that for all the bark and bite that downers like me and other doubting Thomases have given Sakurai, and Nintendo, and the staff at whole...they listened. Doesn't matter if they heard or not. They bit back
and with that bite back they sent us a statement. Their statement is like, Nintendo, and the rest of the big-name video game companies--they just want to remind us, and those Indies, who the kings really are. Maybe that's not the statement they're trying to make, but it's like
that statement, it's similar to that statement in power and emotion. I still think their choices leave a lot to be desired and I'm still cut up over how much they're pushing guys like Townsperson (call that kid a "Villager" without playing Age of Empires
and I'll kill you) and the overrated avatar system "Mii" and how well they're being received in return (although the worst of all will always be the imageboards having Trainer around every curv
--I mean corner
), but now I can say with the utmost relief that this is not going to be another fiasco like Brawl
but instead, the best thing since Friendship
season 2, Homestuck
and Dr. Who
...at least, not until the hackers and probies start dissecting it at the mechanics. Then we'll run into complications like always. But what I'm trying to say is that for Smash
, I advocate quantity before quality, but Smash 4
went quality, and I am impressed.
I look forward to getting a job next month so I can have the money to buy the game which hits the shelves the same day Annabelle
lands in theaters. Which I will not be seeing.
Also, ah...that rumor for Shrek being in the game...confirmed or disproved yet? Anyone? EDIT:
