>Chrom continues to be the butt monkey
Does Sakurai hate him or something?
>that high-res Palutena/Viridi/Pit banter art
Kid Icarus U FUCKING WHEN?
I know Sakurai said he wouldn't work on a sequel. Shut up.
It's so fucking obvious. There's no other explanation for so much irrational hate towards one character
I really fucking hope for DLC because the Robin trailer still fucking hurts.
I have to think that western audiences are the butt monkeys though. Zero new characters for DK or Metroid?
>Anything can change! Behold, my demons!
Chrom was just too OP is all. Plus only one character with stupid catchprases per Smash. Imagine if Chrom, Snake, AND Robin were in.
Man, if it's just Pit then that's a shame, I basically play as Palutena and Game and Watch most and am not really a fan of Pits playstyle.
Still, ridiculously happy we get new KIU tier banter, fuck yes.
Awakening was literally Fire Emblem's last chance at having a successful game before Nintendo said they'd shut it down.
Fortunately, Awakening was a success but the franchise is still one of Nintendo's smaller ones.
I would've just put a small box around the text, similar to the way it looks with the Star-Fox convos.
I'm sure they wanted it to have a different feel, visually, but the result is trash.
>Considering that Sakurai is a huge Fire Emblem fan, probably. Everyone hates Awakening.
Which is why after playing the game he decided to make a newcomer with unique mechanics instead of just putting Chrom in as the boring option, and also put in an FE:A alt costume that was later elevated to a clone. I've never ever played a FE game, but the fans are amazingly obnoxious about how much they hate the 3DS one.
Almost every character introduced in Uprising would have been very easy to port to the 3DS version of Smash and already basically had a moveset
Any DK character has to have a moveset thought up and then modeled for both the Wii U and 3DS versions
Considering Awakening saved the series and is the most popular entry by far I think it's safe to ignore the kids who've played one or two of the others and feel the need to cry about waifus. It's just a vocal minority crying that they didn't stick to the same old formula and watch the series die with it.
Like, I'm totally with you, like okay? Itth jutht too clashing with my like, feng shuy and thtuff. They totally don't underthtand dethign printhipleth. Like, I'm jutht bummed, totally.
I really doubt it, but DLC of Chrom would make me... so happy. He was literally the one character I wanted most.
Granted, Mewtwo's back, the only other character I was hoping for, so I've at least got something to cling to.
>You will never know the pleasure of being Chrommed inside.
I would've settled for a reskin of Ike just for those sweet Matthew Mercer yells. Every time he roars "We're not done yet!" at the end of Robin's final smash I get an erection.
>Say Viridi, doesn't Kirby sound familiar to you?
>What? I don't know what you're trying to say.
>Nevermind. I've just been importing a bunchof games.
Anyone else shocked that this made it in? A lot of people were hoping for the exact same type of codecs and I thought it was a nice idea but a bit farfetched.
Then they actually went and did it.
>ugh Pitty what on earth are fighting?
>Not now you dolt, what is that?
>You mean Kirby, what's wrong with him?
>Everything! It's not natural for someone to have a bigger appetite than me.
>Are you jealous?
>Frankly yes, he might be more diabolacle than myself, maybe I should teach him a thing or two.
>Well he's defeated darkness incarnate and giant black bleeding monoeyes so don't get your hopes up
*Palutena walks in*
>oh you mean Zero? He was actually a failed centurion.
>Oh don't mind me Pit, I didn't breed monsters or anything before having you around.
>I don't think I'm that much of a bad guy anymore.
It's kind of crazy. It gets criticism outside of /v/, but it's nowhere near the level it is here, where at one point we were having bitchthreads about it every day. And hilariously, 4chan is where there's some of the the most bitching about "waifushit" and "weeaboo bullshit". Though I can kind of understand the last point when the marriage mechanic bred shitholes like /feg/, which is pretty much just "waifu fanfic writing general" now .
People wanted a Hades stage with live commentary, even though sassy Hades is admittedly a US dub exclusive
I am almost sick to death of "authorized winning" and I invented the damn line
>MFW I married Cordelia because I didn't want to marry my best bud's daughter
Fuck you Chrom
>I have to think that western audiences are the butt monkeys though. Zero new characters for DK or Metroid?
He gave us little mac, the nip reaction to that was basically
Fucking yeah, dude. This is what i've been saying.
Smash fans typically fall into 2 groups, people who care about playstyles, and people who care about characters. I care for the character more.. why they couldn't add him in as a skin to appease his fans is so strange to me. It would affect nothing.
Personally I'm torn between Ike and Marth as who he'd be a better fit for. Chrom's more swift like Marth, but Ike's body language fits Chrom more... either would do
Absolutely agreed. It's a good game, but it does have some large mechanical weaknesses which are worth noting and criticizing
But for some reason, /v/ has to be completely black and white about everything. It's either GOTY or complete shit and a waste of money. There's no middle ground, and it makes discussion like swimming up a shit creek without a paddle.
>Ike's body language fits Chrom more
A lot of Chrom's unique animations in Awakening are based on Ike's, including one of his crit animations and some of his generic strikes. Lucina and Marth stab a lot, Chrom just swings and enemies fall by the wayside.
>Whoa! What happened to Robin?
>You didn't know, Viridi? There are two Robins.
>But they're so similar! How can they exist at the same time?
>Just roll with it. Wonder where she keeps all her tomes?
>Who are you?
>...My name's not important. I just want to sit here and watch Robin...
>Oh hey, I remember you! You were cut from the 3D-
>Quiet! The ESRB's not supposed to know I'm here!
>Oh. Okay then.
>You know, for someone who doesn't like attention, you sure don't dress like it.
>I didn't choose this outfit, okay? Now stay quiet and pretend I'm not here.
>A-all right then.
Dude has ridiculous growths and an unlimited use sword that gets bonus damage like 30% of the enemies you fight in the first half of the game. He's easily one of the best units in the game. Hell, on higher difficulties all you need to do is run him through Paladin to get his Res up and Aegis and he's set for the high end DLC as long as he's got a good support buddy.
>Don't call me that.
>Fine! Pallete swap, why are you registered as a separate character?!
>Some eskimos couldn't make it. Thought I'd take their invitation off their hands. Luckily I managed to squeeze right in.
>Those were the Ice Climbers! Aww man, I was looking forward to seeing them again...
>Well, try again in 6 years.
You're right. Even though fighting style wise he probably matches Marth more, it just wouldn't look right with the more graceful swings.
To be honest, I've always imagined Chrom playing like Cpt. Falcon with a sword. Really aggressive, swift, rushdown type character, with obvious power behind his moves. Even if he is a sword user, I think he'd make an interesting moveset..
.. but at this point, that's pretty much discussing a moot point. If he miraculously makes it in as DLC, great, but I wouldn't bet on it.
In my game he fell off the second he became a great lord, started getting 2-3 stats per level and quickly becoming my most fragile and least damaging team member. He was absolute trash up until the final fight when the plot demands him to be awesome.
You're obviously playing him wrong. I don't know how you fucked up a unit with great STR SKIL and SPD to boot who also naturally learns some of the best skills in the game.
Like, fuck, hes got an unbreakable sword that grants bonus damage against one of the most common enemy types, Aether and Luna which activate 24/7 with Rightful King, and a huge DEF buff upon reclassing. His only flaw is his SPD cap isn't the best, but it's still high, and has a large growth rate.
Can somebody tell me why Lucina mad it in but not Chrom?
Was it all for the waifu fags who "Want to lick Lucina's feet?"
Same with Literally Who: The Angel's Edgy form. How did Dark Pit make it in but not fucking Chrom?
