Single Status Update
Smash Ultimate is a really great game that everyone finds a new reason to hate every single week. It's really fascinating and interesting looking at this from the other side as someone who's not super invested in the community side of things and just plays it on my own from time to time.
I'm trying to comprehend getting a Sonic & SEGA All-Stars game where I could play as over 70+ characters with the whole Sonic cast, including the ones left out of TSR, and all the features and constant updates on top of it... and being angry about anything extra they added. That amount of care being applied to the base game alone sounds like a dream to me.
Not saying they can't be disappointed in stuff but I'm surprised by how visceral the anger is in conjunction with how good the game is. Every week a Bylith problem or a Sonic problem will happen and it'll be treated like the worst thing ever and I'm just like... yeah. Okay but... TSR had 15 characters and no full Team Chaotix so...
... I'm just saying, if they're gonna be upset either way, could we trade roster sizes..? Maybe...?
Let's trade in the number of stages too. I'd like to cruise through some of the Jet Set Radio and House of the Dead tracks again please. Maybe throw in a better designed Burning Rangers track. Oh, and the After Burner one. Maybe get in a Persona one since SEGA have Atlus. I'd like that.
(I'm mostly being facetious here. Don't take this too seriously or personally.)
Play any game too much and you'll start to get irritated with it's limitations. A lot of Smash fans IMO just need to learn when to step away, but a lot of them either made or are trying to make it their source of income so..whoops?
@Wraith Guilty as charged TBH on the "need to learn when to step away" part. I'm not ranting about it on a daily basis or tried making it a source of income; but the amount of time playing Smash (Wii U/Ultimate) vs. playing other games (a good amount of which I haven't finished) has been disproportionate for the past few years.
The hypothetical game you're describing sounds a lot like Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart. Was that a coincidence of deliberate? XD
I don't actually know much about it. It just looks like a game with tones of content in it.
I was also surprised by how vicious the Smash community can be, but since I tend to go about things at my own pace, I've never interacted with any of them.
