PushDustin is on a much deserved vacation, so I’m going to be taking over the Featured Comments for the next couple weeks.
This week’s comments span from from April 24th-May 1st. Let’s get cracking!
It’s quite interesting for someone to have brought this up. Smash 3DS saw at least some strides taking in keeping your settings saved with the costume colours (why it isn’t in the Wii U version is anybody’s guess). It’s definitely something that should be taken into consideration in the next game.
I’ve been extremely vocal in the past about my advocacy for Alph to have been separated from Olimar like Lucina and Dark Pit were. Aside from Olimar and Alph both having only 1/2 of the amount of alternate colours as every other roster member, Alph uses Olimar’s ship in his Final Smash! Not to mention that when Kirby copies him, he gets Olimar’s colour for his “hat”. Hopefully it’s something that’s rectified in the future. It could happen, depending on who the Pikmin 4 protagonist is.
Having written the article, I suppose I should have given my thoughts as to who the most likely characters who formerly had Mii Fighter costumers could be: Inklings, Isabelle, K. Rool, Geno, Toad, Tails and Takamaru. I was previously asked about this on twitter, which you can find here.
It’s crazy to think that Miyamoto could have been playable in Smash. But crazier things have happened! Did you know that Stan Lee was considered for Marvel vs. Capcom 3? He was on Capcom’s original proposal, but Marvel turned down the idea.
The reference to Reggie and Iwata was almost certainly an allusion to this consideration. I did think at the time that it would have been a good idea to have based the default Mii Fighters on Iwata, Reggie and Miyamoto.
Miyamoto has received something of a bad rep in recent years, which is disappointing. He’s genuinely one of the most brilliant minds the gaming industry has ever seen. Everyone has bad ideas from time to time, but I don’t think even some of his more naff ideas have ever truly been detrimental to the overall experience of his games.
My advice is to rent it if you’re unsure if you’ll enjoy the game as a result of the controls. Though from the criticisms I’ve seen; most of them are fired by people who are either too stubborn to give them a fair shot, or who had admitted to not even playing the game in the first place. If you even slightly enjoyed Star Fox 64, I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t enjoy Zero.
Keep the comments coming, until next time!
