  1. Ok, sure, credit where it's due, but this just makes it seem like the resistance had everything they needed to get these jobs done, and yet completely failed to do so until they had a random shmuck and/or Sonic to do the heavy lifting for them. That doesn't really seem better to me.
  2. I mean, it's not even a question. Sonic's friends shouldn't be defenseless without him. Exactly how capable they are should vary depending on who you focus on, but none of them should be outright helpless.
  3. Since most of the Mii Gunner costumes already use arm cannons, it may have been done for variety's sake. Or, perhaps, they wanted it to be visually clear that it's regular Tails with a blaster, and not some kind of Bionic-Commando-robot-arm Tails.
  4. Yes. I know. And I'm saying that it's fucking stupid. The fact that Sonic Team is actually doing this doesn't stop it from being stupid, it just makes them stupid for thinking it's a good idea.
  5. The key word was "should." Anything you can say about one version of any Sonic character SHOULD apply to any other version of that character, because there SHOULD only ever be one overarching definition of who that character is. The fact that there is more than one is a problem that SHOULD be fixed. We SHOULD NOT be embracing the idea that they're separate.
  6. Generations by itself is fine, because that game was just using Sonic's old design as a "past" Sonic, which is actually kinda cheeky and clever. Forces is the game that established the "Classic-is-an-alternate-dimension" garbage.
  7. He's broken. It seems he can't move anything but his head.
  8. The only reason the modern characters are inconsistent is because Sonic Team has screwed. Up. The problem with saying "oh, Amy's been too many different things," is that, honestly? She probably shouldn't have been all of those things. You can't look at a history of mistakes and treat everything like it's worth serious consideration. The Modern, Adventure, and Classic characters are all THE SAME CHARACTERS, so any characterization you would give one version should just as easily apply to any other version. The only actual, practical difference would be voice acting, and there's no good reason for anyone to believe that can't be done well. The idea that these variations of the characters are separate, or somehow should be separate is stupid. Even if Sonic Team themselves are among the ones saying it. If we're all looking at this interpretation of Amy and saying "this is the ideal," then this is the way any version of Amy should be.
  9. Surely I'm not the only person who- Well, shit. That's basically what I wanted to say. Piranha Plant is INTENTIONALLY stupid. He's an extra character, which is good incentive to buy the game early, but he's also stupid, so no one will care if they miss getting him for free. And anyone who does care about having him will be able to just buy him later on anyway. Yeah, except you actually CARE about Toad, otherwise you wouldn't consider him a better choice. Piranha Plant is designed to be expendable. He's lame enough to be offered as a freebie. He's lame enough for people to not care that he isn't in the base roster. He's lame enough that people won't be bothered when he isn't free anymore. And, thinking about it, honestly? Piranha Plant might actually have more to offer as a unique character than any Toad does, but that's not the point I'm trying to make here.
  10. You know, personally, I'm hoping that the Grinch leak isn't real, because I'd like at least one character reveal to catch me off guard. I don't even really get why people are so attached to that leak anyway. To me, it's just a list of characters that people were already talking about. It seems very plausible, but it's also exactly the kind of list that someone doing a fake leak would put together.
  11. Well, if you're so committed to that analogy, the first problem is that I don't disagree with it. Donkey Kong is a stand alone series, but it's also connected to Mario. If someone came along and said "I don't want to see any more Mario or Mario related characters in Smash," I wouldn't argue against them, because there's nothing about that statement that's actually wrong. I'd consider it fair. Second problem, KH and FF are not nearly as separate as you're saying they are. I mean, yeah, ok, they "just" share some characters a little, and also their entire spell system. Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, Cure, Gravity, Aero, Stop, Flare, Holy, etc. And a bunch of items. Also, the FF characters tended to be more significant to the overall stories than the Disney characters, who are usually stuck in their own worlds. Kingdom Hearts has a lot of the standard trappings that typically come along with Final Fantasy games. Also, Tetsuya Nomura. Long story short, Kingdom Hearts has Final Fantasy DNA, even if the FF characters are less significant than they used to be. Third? Context. We're talking about Smash Bros, which is a mainly Nintendo thing. Literally any third party character is gonna be harder to make happen than anyone Nintendo owns, so I'm inclined to think that the third party characters chosen should be as diverse as possible. Megaman and Street Fighter are completely separate, as are Sonic and Bayonetta, and Metal Gear and Castlevania. Kingdom Hearts is not completely separate from Final Fantasy. Dragon Quest IS, therefore, I think Dragon Quest is the better choice.
  12. I'm not saying the Kingdom Hearts literally is Final Fantasy, just that they're very closely related. And I'd rather have something more separate. There's no way in Hell that Dragon Quest is closer to Final Fantasy than Kingdom Hearts is.
  13. Here I was thinking I would be the only one willing to speak up for Dragon Quest, and now we're having a legitimate conversation about the possibility. Warms my icy heart. Personally, I don't really care that much about how significant DQ is to Nintendo because, well, that ship has already sailed with Cloud. However, I would like to point out that Nintendo has actively helped publish some of the games outside of Japan. They published IX, as well as the DS and 3DS versions of VI and VII, respectively. The Wii and Wii U were also the first consoles to get X, though admittedly only in Japan. And as has been said before, XI is on the 3DS in Japan, and is coming to the Switch. There's some significance there. When it comes to Sora, the main reason I'm kind of against him is because Kingdom Hearts is basically just an extension of Final Fantasy. And I'd rather have someone from something that's not.
  14. So, am I the only person around here who thinks that if Square Enix does get another character, it should, you know, NOT be from Final Fantasy? I mean, I know that basically no one is gonna back me up on this, but I think a Dragon Quest character would be pretty well justified.
  15. Are you assuming that the Super Crown will be the ONLY power up Toadette can ever get? Because that's wrong, the trailer showed Toadette using Ice Flowers, so it's probably safe to assume that she'll be able to use anything the others can. The Super Crown will probably just be an extra power up that only shows up when she's in play. And it probably just won't work for anyone other than her. Setting that aside, I have to say that, honestly? Everything about Toadette in this game just screams "kneejerk response." People complained about having two random toads, so they dumped one and replaced him with a more unique one. People complained about Peach not being playable, so they bullshit invent a way to get Toadette to also be Peach...and then give her Peach's floating ability...and also Daisy's double jump from Super Mario Run. I honestly thought what they did with Nabbit in Luigi U was dumb, but this is dumb to the second power.
