Like I stated lasted week, I’m looking to bring more exposure to the great comments we get on the site.
This roundup covers January 9th-15th (Japan time).
This is certainly an interesting subject to investigate, and one that’s very appropriate as the latest installment finishes development. Do we have it “good” with Sakurai? This is something I look forward to discussing with you guys in the coming months.
amiibo figures are pretty addictive. I had to set boundaries before it got out of control.
This is how a lot of people feel, so I felt like it warranted a feature. It’s important to remember that everyone have different levels of expectations, different wants and care about different things. Personally, I think Smash’s overall roster does a great job pandering to a wide range of people, but at the risk of not making particular groups of people thrilled.Custom Robo is a series that I really need to play. Especially since I live in Japan and have Japanese Nintendo consoles, I don’t really have an excuse. SG Choice #13 — Dormant Nintendo Franchises
Magicant is easily one of, if not my favorite stage on the 3DS. It’s a well made stage, and it feels perfect.
I think it is time to move on, and to accept the final roster. In the end it’s a very impressive roster — one that arguably outdoes all of the other fighting and crossover type games. It has a ton of star-power to it, and covers a lot of bases.
I think that Final Smash would be a great idea. However, I disagree with your version of Impa. Impa has had a lot of varying appearances in Zelda (old women, aunt, ninja, etc) and none stick out as the “true Impa” (The OoT one is probably the most popular, with Skyward Sword being a close 2nd). This makes it difficult to 1. select an Impa and 2. be accurate to her history.
WARNING: Opinion time:
Ganondorf was really popular in the If There Was a Smash 2 Poll and yet…he wasn’t chosen. I feel that the reason he did get into Melee was only because of his clone status. Maybe Sakurai had problems imagining a moveset for him, based on OoT alone? Also, Ganondorf (not Pig Ganon) was unproven when Melee was being made — he didn’t come back in Majora’s Mask, and he was dropped in the Oracle games (Would need to match up the development dates to see if they coincided). The future seemed bleak, so he might not have fit the bill to be an all-star to be on chosen for the base roster. Of course by the time Brawl rolled around, Ganondorf had his Twilight Princess, Four Swords and Wind Waker appearances which would have fleshed out the character more. But his appearance in Melee might have nudged the developers to include him in the other games. So…it’s very difficult to tell if he would’ve been better off waiting for Brawl as the character could have died too.
