Gaming is a passion that I’ve had ever since I was little. Smash is just a natural stem of that passion that has constantly evolved ever since I got older.
It’s one of my favorite pass times and interacting with people who have the same interest is really cool. I also hope to extend it into Source Gaming and do something to help make the community better.

  1. Another excellent character concept, this one was definitely worth the wait. I could definitely see a Venus Djinn being incorporated into one of his taunts, although personally I could do without the Matthew alt. I feel that what makes Isaac special isn’t just his moveset potential or that he represents the Golden Sun series specifically; to me, Isaac is an icon of the Game Boy Advance era, and that he is remembered so fondly even now is a testament to that.

  2. At last, a new video from Delzethin! I sincerely hope things are going better for him than they have been.

    Anyway, I STILL see people say that the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot was rigged, one big practical joke, or just something done by Sakurai to give the illusion that we had some say in the matter. Most of this hinges on Bayonetta winning and how a large number of people don’t buy that. They demand to see the results first-hand, or at least see who was ranked where instead of saying where Bayonetta was placed. Honestly, these people come off as really petty sore losers who would honestly rather see someone they want win, or someone that’s popular to them make it. To me, Bayonetta WAS popular, just not as vocal as, say, Shovel Knight, King K. Rool, or even Ridley or Isaac. That being said, I also wouldn’t have minded seeing the full results for myself. Your idea of them taking the top results and going with what they found most appealing kind of contradicts what they said regarding Bayonetta being the overall winner. Either way, I don’t know why Sakurai bothered to keep them a secret. The only reason I can think of is because he intends to use the results in future Super Smash Bros. games and wants to keep the characters added a secret, but that doesn’t make much sense given that Sakurai REALLY doesn’t want to work on any more Super Smash Bros. games, given how exhausting the last one was to work on. Although I DO recall the ballot saying the results will also be used for future Nintendo games as well, though I forgot where exactly I read that and I’m not sure if that’s even true.

    Either way, I DO hope either one is true to some extent; I want Nintendo to know what characters fans care about and use them to make new games for those characters… particularly Isaac from Golden Sun, given that the third game in the series ended on a cliffhanger and was pretty much abandoned after that. Granted, sales for the Golden Sun series haven’t been so hot, but I do want a Golden Sun 4 if only to wrap things up nicely and not be left hanging. …Oh yeah, and add Isaac for Smash Bros., too, that’s cool as well.

    Seriously, thanks to this one particular video I came across during the Smash Ballot:

    Isaac has since become my number 2 most-wanted character in the series. He makes a lot of sense in terms of giving Golden Sun a boost in visibility and how what abilities he has can make for a unique fighter. Not to mention I was SUPER pissed off that he was an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl but basically disappeared in Smash 4; barely anything from the Golden Sun series was in Smash 4, aside from 2 songs or so. Of course, that DOES hurt his chances, given that Golden Sun hasn’t been relevant in years. Then again, Sakurai has been known to pick fighters for their potential, regardless of their relevancy, and of course there’s the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, I’m sure he had a sizeable amount of votes in that. Fingers crossed!

    That being said, I haven’t played much of the Golden Sun series. I’ve been trying my hardest to get back to the series in-depth, but there are plenty of other games occupying my time. So with that in mind, it’s awesome to hear someone who’s researched the games to go on about how he’ll play. I particularly like how Delzethin mentioned that his weapon of choice is a longsword, I think that’s a detail a lot of people, even fellow Golden Sun fans, would overlook, but is EXACTLY the kind of attention to detail the Smash Bros. series is known for (sort of). Some of the ideas I had DID make it into his moveset, like “”Catch” as a grab, “Quake” as a smash attack, “Move” as his neutral special, and “Judgement” as his Final Smash, though again, his ideas blow mine out of the water!

    It’s great to have Delzethin back making videos, I look forward to more! #SmashBros #SuperSmashBros #SmashBrosSwitch #SuperSmashBrosSwitch #Isaac4Smash #IsaacforSmashBros #GoldenSun #GoldenSun4
