I really wish it was this guy being revealed today so we can just get the shitstorm over with already.
but nooooo, it'll be boring ol' Shulk.
I wish it was none of the gematsu 3
i want something that will throw everybody for a loop
That's definitely not what's gonna happen. Remember, there were Rhythm Heaven enemies in Smash Run, so It's still gonna be Chorus Men
>Be an Ausfag
>Had a shitty nights sleep last night
>Woke up at 4:30 AM trying to get back to sleep
>Couldn't get back to sleep
>Had my course today
>By lunchtime I wanted to sleep
>Finish class for the day
>Had to bus home, get changed into suit asap so I can recatch the same bus (it goes around to somewhere else for like 20 minutes then comes back) back to where I just was for a job interview
>Reveal is midnight
>I can barely keep my eyes open
>I want to be here for the hype
It means the Gematsu leak is real. Chrom was teased, Rhythm heaven related enemies in the game, and today it's Shulk day.
>people who believe the leaker as absolute fact
Don't get your hopes up I'm scared of this thing.
So here's the skinny:
If It's Shulk (or any of the other Gematsu leaked characters), the leak is basically correct, which means that there's no reason to get excited for any smash news anymore.
That's the worst case scenario.
If it's a character we didn't expect, not only is there going to be a gigantic shitstorm now, but we can look forward to shitstorms in the future.
That's an abomination of nature
Kill it with fire
>for the Gematsu leak
The Gematsu leak means we'll have the worst roster in the series. Chorus Men, Shulk, Chrom (more swordsmen, yaaaay), No K.Rool, no interesting twists, nothing.
If it's Chrom, we shouldn't think the leak is correct, since it was kind of really obvious and expected. As long as it isn't Chorus Man because it was impossible to predict and Shulk because of the mail, the leak is fucked up. I'm honestly hyped only because of this >>253093857
I want to believe what. Sakurai said about third party being reserved for classic characters. Which the Rabbids are fucking not.
Shulk went from "eh, it's ok I guess" to vanguard of non-terrible characters.
Pick one. It's the most disappointing possible leak. Which means it's always the correct one. All the fake leaks fill up on characters they know people are most hyped for.
I expect the Gematsu leak to be partially wrong, for the obvious reason of "we need to cover our leak so Nintendo doesn't sue us". That's why I don't think we'll ever have either Shulk, Chorus man or Chrom.
dunno how anyone could even jokingly/trollingly infer that guy with a badass giant laser sword whose inclusion in the game would mean several songs from one of the best video game ost's out there is "boring"
there's really no way to hate the idea of shulk being included unless:
A) you haven't played xenoblade (and for the love of god at least pirate that shit, though it deserves your money) or
B) they would rather it be the true hero of xenoblade, Riki
Well, I don't really want Chrom, but I guess yeah, if the gematsu leak is correct, then Chrom is the only one who can keep the hype still high, because it's so likely that it could make anybody's leak correct as long as it had Chrom and other kinda predictable characters like Palutena, since the leak must absolutely be correct just with having "Pokemon from X and Y" and not even having Rosalina.
>getting used for putting out leaked info
Gematsu/Sal Romano are perfectly safe. Whoever leaked the info to the,, their the ones who will get totally fucked if Nintendo ever finds out and providing Nintendo can prove the leaker knew what he was doing.
It's an utterly uncreative, disappointing and boring list. That's solid evidence it's legit. If it was a more obvious fake, it'd be filled with shit like K. Rool, Waluigi and other ones that everyone else would've picked and were hyped for.
But that's not proof. I need scientific undeniable proof. If you're saying it's likely, sure. But if you wish for me to swallow it as fact you need to prove it without a shadow of a doubt
Then I would be disappointed that Sakurai added two anime swordsmen to the fucking roster.
I wouldn't be a retarded dicksucker like you who will then worship Gematsu as a fucking god.
>not believing in ghosts
What, are pictures and thousands of videos not enough?
No, you dipshit. How do you think the world would be like if, instead of science and hard facts we just assumed things on conjecture and "well...it's PROBABLY right"?
I don't get what's up with this whole anime swordsman shtick.
Are you guys fucking retarded? Why is it that everything remotely from japan suddenly gets called anime. This shit doesn't even make sense.
Also a lot of fucking people forget that Sakurai made characters fun to play even if he had nearly nothing to work with e.g. Captain Falcon and Little Mac.
>in a year, everyone will deny ever believing the leak
>no one will own up and say "I was fooled"
I was willing to believe it when he predicted Wii Fit Trainer.
Pac-Man, Mii and Palutena cemented it for me.
Also let's not forget that one day before E3, he said "Oh by the way, Mii is actually called Mii Fighter".
Shulk seems to be the most likely so i'm pretty hyped since I just finished Xenoblade for the first time a few days ago, that ending was a fucking mindfuck
i'd rather have Phoenix Wright but >never ever
I'm gonna stay up.
Expecting Shulk, but mostly waiting for the video itself.
Newcomer videos for Smash are awesome.
There isn't any proof but the releases make like a 99% chance of it being right. You can choose to believe the 1% but if you don't have enough standards to filter out some uncertainties then you'll never make it in life.
Chorus man is great and i hope he gets added and ridley doesn't just to see those salty /v/ tears and cries for lizard lick well better call lizard lick towing because he's going back in the bin FUCK YOU RIDLEY
The worst part of the leak is that people are so far up the leakers ass that no one will even discuss like "what if (character) is in?!" It's just "LOL WILL IT BE CHROM, SHULK, OR CHORUSMEN?!"
It really ruined all the fun.
>thinks a scientist would believe this leak despite no tangible facts being present
>thinks a lawyer would believe this, without any facts to support it
Please, dipshit. You won't get anywhere in life if you try to base everything off assumptions. Do you think Newton or Einstein just went "lol close enough, I don't need the whole story!"?
Not that guy, but I will. In fact, if Shulk isn't shown today, I'll make a thread repenting on /v/. Even though it wouldn't technically disprove the leak, my absolute certainty in it would be shattered, and I would lay myself bare.
But I won't have to because as sure as the sun rises every morning, Shulk will be revealed in 2 hours.
I think the main problem with Blunder Red being in smash is that he doesn't have many unique attacks on his own, and unite morphs are at least 10x bigger than him.
I'm having a hard time thinking of a moveset for him
I hope to god it's not Shulk or Chrom. Those two would be boring as fuck to have because they're just Generic JRPG Swordsman #2212 and #2184, respectively. They would probably have the exact same debut video.
>random characters fighting (probably Mario and Samus)
>suddenly, generic anime swordsman lands in the middle of them
>swings sword around in an arc menacingly before striking his battle stance
>Generic Anime Swordsman has joined the fight! Sugoi!
>generic JRPG music starts playing
>shots of Generic Anime Swordsman doing running slash attacks on Mario and shit
>Generic Anime Swordsman using Counter
>Generic Anime Swordsman doing rising slash, which is his Up Special
>Voiceover of Generic Anime Swordsman talking about fighting because he likes a challenge/for justice
>shot of him using his Final Smash, which is Ultimate Zantetsuken Omnislash or whatever
>random shots of him doing more slash attacks on Kirby, Samus and maybe Sanic
>trailer ends with him doing a slash attack at the camera with the added sound effect of a sword slashing very loudly as the screen cuts to black
I laughed hard, literally every time. I guess with Shulk the fighters might suddenly stop a second before the attack because of the Monado's time power, but the rest is 100% going to happen.
Take a statistics course fag. You can infer things without explicit proof by defining how likely it is and the largest amount of uncertainty you'd except for it to be true. Scientists do that sort of thing all the time you ignorant dipshit. Are you seriously implying that all accepted academic science has 100% explicit proof?
So why aren't ghosts accepted yet, anon? There's tons of evidence. The only evidence given for the leak is coincidences and nothing else. Either prove it to me right here or really, just stop responding. If you can't prove it, then what are you even doing?
Can someone explain me all the rage and fury over wasted slots and "worthless" characters? I just accept the characters and don't care as long as I'm having fun playing the game.
Is it autismo?
>have to be somewhere while the reveal is happening
There are thousands of unexplainable phenomena relating to ghosts from pictures to video to audio recordings, but science does not accept that as fact. I consider all that evidence far stronger than "B-B-B-BUT HE'S BEEN RIGHT SO FAR" especially when we take into account he hasn't been right because he never predicted Rosalina.
I was thinking: So since the Melee clones (like Roy and Dr. Mary-oh) might not be returning, do you figure that the customizable moves will let players customize the moves of the characters they were based off of to be more like the removed characters? Like, if Ike got customizable moves to make him more similar to Roy, or Lucario got some to make his moves more resemble Mewtwos
>Tons of evidence
No there isn't.
An example of something that has no explicit proof is gravity. Show me PROOF that gravity exists. Yeah yeah everything that has always gone up has always gone down, but that's not PROOF. Yeah the idea of gravity has never been wrong (just like the gematsu leaks), but that's just COINCIDENCE! There's no real proof!
The fact that gravity has been observed to be true a trillion times without failure is proof because the chances of it being false after all of this evidence is so infinitesimally minuscule that people will accept it as proven truth. The fucking point is that in the real world (not just your fedoraesque idea of what you think science and logic is) things are often accepted by sceintists and academics as true just from evidence, just from some intrinsic mathematical or logical proof.
>mfw timezone buddies
I don't have work today though.
>Think it's gonna be at 16:00, the exact time I'll be on gym
>Check out video
>44 minutes left
>It's at 15:00 for me
So C.Falcon is back and Lucina and Robin are the newcomers
