    ReMind campaign - It's about 3-5 hours long, but a fair chunk of that is running through the finale of KH3 again, only with a few additional cutscenes, and being able to play as Roxas, Riku and Aqua. Things don't really change much until you get to Scala.

    Wait, they don't even stick it into the main campaign? You'd think they would, given how sparse it is, what with just essentially being story content that should've been in the game already,  but alas.

    No, I just remember how the last couple of hype cycles for these games have gone. I remember when people swore one of the most critically acclaimed action games of the last decade getting into Smash was because of a rigged ballot. There are definitely just some archetypes the Smash fandom isn't excited about for reasons that IMO are shallow.

    There are just some characters that don't gel with the online Smash fandom no matter how popular they are outside of it and Fire Emblem is probably the biggest example.

    Eh, not for nothing, but it kinda comes off as condescending and tone policing if you're running off the idea that Smash fans just blatantly dislike it when Fire Emblem gets a character, without even taking into mind the actual reasons.

    You're not really making a good argument if you just keep running off of that assumption. I mean, c'mon, let's not pretend like the backlash couldn't have been mitigated if this reveal cycle had at least been better planned out. 

    Especially given how a lot of fans have pointed out that even as FE fans they're disappointed with this reveal.

    The backlash has been absurd for a couple of days every single time they reveal a Smash bros character that doesn't look like a cereal mascot.

    You're missing the Forest for the trees here on this one.

    Pretty much no one was expecting Fire Emblem, given the pattern and contents of the Fighter Pass preceding Byleth.

    And unlike a case like say, Banjo-Kazooie, him beating the odds didn't particularly provide joy, for obvious reasons.

    It's a bit disingenuous to suggest that the massive backlash is literally just because it's not the character people wanted, especially given how this one's backlash is far more notable.

    I stay by the stance that Byleth was horribly timed release wise and would've been better received at a different point in time.

    Nintendo, did not read the crowd well on this one.

    There's no time they could have put Byleth where you guys suddenly would have been okay with him being in the game long term

    Nah mate. Backlash wouldn't have been nearly as big if he were say, the first fighter of the second pass that wasn't hyped for bringing in new worlds and franchises like the first one was.

    Or heck, put him in the middle of the pass, not at the dead end of it.

    Just say you don't care about Fire Emblem and move the fuck on.

    As someone who actually likes Fire Emblem and owns copies of Awakening and Three Houses, no I will not.

    Though I will say: OBJECTION, given the contradiction at hand.

    They knew it would be divisive but they also know they made a lot of money off of 3 Houses and the last couple of fire emblem characters they released as DLC so, unsurprisingly, fans whining online for a week was considered worth taking the hit for the long run.

    They really could've saved it for the second pass though and not have broken the first one's strong streak.

    Seriously, of all the characters, let alone finales to keep locked down from leaks, this was the weakest one to hype up as the lord of all secret characters.

    So get ready for Viscount, Willie Wumpa, Evil Twins and so on. Heck, even Bearminator might get in

    There's been rumblings in the community concerning Mr. Crumb, and Twinsanity characters.

    Spoiler

    who's Joe? Joe is the codename to Emperor Velo?

     

    That's the agreed consensus, yes. He apparently was originally titled as Driver Whoami.

    • A new blog post is upon us.

    1. Mega-Mix is being implemented as the 50th character, and yes it's just him as far as new GP characters go.
    2. New Mask is named Apo Apo.
    3. We're getting a new game mode called Golden Wumpa Hunt which is implied to be a permanent version of Ghost Hunt.
    4. Chick and Stew are apparently getting new skins, implied to be exotic.

    Haha! It certainly looks that way from the angle at least. I think he is actually driving a Kart that’s obscured from view.

    That wouldn't address him standing up though. Since he has no such prior animations. Also, there's only one set of spoilers,  which means it's just the one Kart there.

    Especially given they're in line with the angle that Chick is sitting at.

    Is there actually just one character this time then with lots of (expensive) skins to make up for it? 

    Seems to be the case so far.

    Damn! Megamix actually.... Looks kinda awesome?! The level looks insane, not gonna lie. Here's the trailer:

     

    Heads up, at 0:23 you can spot Cortex using a new mask! Looks a lot like Uka-Uka but as in Crash of the Titans (!!)

    Anyone else notice new mid-racing animations for skins? Special notice goes to Tiny now rocking a guitar at 0:09.


  9. https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2487554/why-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalkers-writer-wishes-it-was-split-into-two-movies

    So even Chris Terio, the writer has said outright that this movie should have been split into multiple movies.

    The more we learn about Rise if Skywalker, the more it seems that executive meddling was at play involving some of this movie's more infamous things in addressing Last Jedi's problems.
