>7 years of a people's lives to make a fangame
they did it for free
I remember being part of the expansion team back in 2010. Holy fuck this game has taken forever. Are they sitting around with their thumbs up their asses?
New version is basically the final product. It's got online and pretty good roster size and shit so they can really just stop now and call it a day (or call it a 7 years) with the whole game.
Who's apparently coming god knows when
Meanwhile seven years later they still thought "yeah, Naruto, Ichigo and Goku should be in this" and revamped their moves
I remember playing this back in the day and liking but jesus man.
They're a poorly organized group of unpaid guys with jobs (or uni) to worry about in most cases
This is pretty much a free time project for most of them, so progress is a crawl
Not to mention they have a boatload planned. I admire their tenacity if nothing else
>decide to put biggest anime characters in fangame to attract players and attention
>add Goku, Ichigo, and Naruto
>7 years later
>still no Luffy
During the development of this game
>Brawl was released
>Project M created
>Project M was finished
>Super Smash Bros 4 was announced
>Duke Nukem Forever was released
>An entire console generation ended
7 years, and for what? A Brawl clone with Goku? The worst part about this is that they're still not done. We will see SSB4 released and P:M finalized before this fucking game even nears it's completion.
>wasting all of this time, energy, and talent on a fan-game
Why? Why not make your own characters and universe? What a waste.
>Ichigo still fights in his shikai
Fun fact: the game was originally going to have these crappy fan characters in it. They realized how retarded that would be (even more so than the animu characters), so they scrapped them.
>Naruto still uses one-tail transformation as FS
>not even 4 Tails mode
>not Sage mode
>not Nine-Tails Chakra mode
>not Six Paths Sage mode
Its a Flash Smash game who was popular cause it was based in Smash Bros, first game was shit, with like 5 sonic characters, OC characters and MK and Kirby begin the same character, but it was quite popular so they made a sequel, taking out the oc and Sonic characters, addin the FS, and making the game look like smash, they even showcase a mode in were you can create your own character from any series, the problem is that the game has been in development for 7 years
>This is the closest we will ever get to Chibi Robo in Smash
>not Rinne Tensei mode with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan and with rikidou techniques, his Gunbai, a Perfect Susano’o and control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he also has mokuton kekkei genkai and yin-yang release ninjutsu.
>he's a programmer
>on the internet
>on his own website for his products
>he does it for free
>he takes his "game" very seriously
>he does it because he is committed to making the best Flash Smash ever
>he throws out characters he doesn't like because the thirteen year olds on his forums with their shitty requests for characters piss him the fuck off
>he deletes threads he doesn't like because they interfere with the slow progress the game is getting
>he will never finish the game
>he will never make the best flash Smash ever
>he will never get a job working for Sakurai
>he will never know how to make a finished product
>he will never have free time
>he will never beat Scarffat in Smash
What's the matter, you got something against anime?
>Meanwhile Goku, Nurutu and Ichigo get top billing
No, its a team of people. The reason for all the animu characters is because the site forums are infested with little retards that probably go ot in public wearing Naruto headbands who constantly request them.
Be honest. Don't you get annoyed when people unironically clamor for shit like Goku and Naruto in Smash? Doesn't that make you cringe, even if it's like a middle schooler doing it?
At around 2010, they took a second look at their plans for anime/OC characters and thought 'wow, this is stupid' and cut them all. However, those three had already been completed by then, so they didn't feel like removing characters their fans had already gotten used to.
At least they're all fun to play as.
Nigga I fucking love Dragon Ball. Bleach less so (even though the final arc is pretty hype, I gotta admit)
Naruto I only keep up with out of obligation and I hope to god it ends soon because shit is beyond retarded at this point.
Still, shit like this rubs me the wrong way. Even back when I was a wee middle schooler on NSider people asking for Goku in Smash was pretty annoying
I stopped keeping up with Naruto shortly after Shippuden started. Around the time where Naruto, Sakura, and Sai? got their asses handed to them by Sasuke despite three years of training. Sasuke is Kishimoto's husbando.
Well you picked a good point to stop.
We're at the final stretch now and Naruto is fighting the alien progenitor of all chakra with his ultimate sage flying super mode in another dimension.
Oh and he and Sasuke are now literally both Jesus.
This shit still isn't finished? Hasn't it been like 5-6 years since this shit was started?
I'm really glad that I stopped reading now.
Nah man I mean that Naruto and Sasuke are literally reincarnations of the two sons of the Sage of the Sixth Paths, who is the originator on ninjutsu and basically Naruto's Jesus
Oh yeah. I completely forgot that Sakurai opened up Sora for the sole reason of making Uprising. What was the point anyway? Couldn't you just make it in Nintendo or HAL? Why open up a company just for 1 game?
The literal only reason I'm still reading is seeing how the hell they are going to end this. This isn't even about ninjas anymore. This is straight up DBZ style now without beams.
Knuckles, Lyn, Sami, Skull Kid and Isaac are the clone engine characters they're working on most likely. There was a leak from one of the PMBR members here about it and he was kicked out/quit immediately afterwards so it's probably legit.
>There exist Brawl mods that are better than this game.
>There exist Brawl mods that add Sonic OCs, Goku, Naruto, Ichigo, and just about any character you can imagine.
I'm just saying. There is no reason for this game to exist when Brawl mods basically allow for Super Smash Flash to exist as if it were a legit game.
>that other naruto with a sword
But they do have to be based on an existing character. That's the rule behind the clone engine
Skull Kid has fairly primal and animalistic movements, Wolf was the first thing that came to mind
Sakurai left HAl because weird reasoning about sequels and the state of the industry
Opened Sora Ltd which is made to contract him for games
Made meteos with some company I forget
Made brawl in colab with some other company
In 2009 PROJECT sora was made with sakurai and other devs for the sole purpose of KI:U, nintendo owned like 70% of project sora and sora ltd and others owned around 30%
It closed after KI:U got done
Sora Ltd (Sakurai) went on to partner with Bandai Namco to make smash 4
why though? It's not like a story driven gane full of fanfictiony dialogue, they're just characters who fight and they're in a fanmade fighting game, they're fun to use, someone will surely enjoy using them, what's the big deal with them compared to Sora or Lloyd? Just because they are shonen characters from games instead of shonen characters from shonen anime they get a free pass?
This game is likely going to suck ass, simply due to being a fangame. You can deny it all you want but it won't hold a candle to Smash For, and that's actually saying something considering how disappointing Brawl was.
>game is likely going to suck ass
But the game is basically finished. The new version coming out in 2 days is all but the final build disregarding patches. All that is left is to add in all the modes and unlockables.
>it won't hold a candle to Smash For
But it's a free game with online multiplayer with its own take on Smash mechanics. It's not meant at all to compete with SSB4
And it's still going to suck. Why are you trying to defend/justify this game?
Same with you.
>But it's free!
So is AIDS. People like you say this and then will go on and say that Smash Flash did things better than Smash For after playing it.
The game's gonna suck, regardless.
>Why are you trying to defend/justify this game?
Where in my post did I imply any of that?
I'm saying there's no reason to use that specific set of words.
You can easily play it now and determine 'yes this sucks' or 'no it doesn't suck'
But you seem dead set in your decision already even though you haven't even touched it
>7 years into development
>Still isn't finished
>Smash 4 will be released soon
>Project M is going strong
This shit is ridiculous, it can't possibly take them that long to make a simple fangame.
>Calling a fangame exactly what it is
Looks like you're trolling. Just because Lloyd Irving and Sora are in the game doesn't mean it's better than Smash For.
I reiterate: This game is going to suck. ANd some people will genuinely say this game is better than Smash For. Brawl was disappointing and Smash For will be but they aren't/won't be worse than this game, FACT.
At least, Super Smash Bros. Crusade has only one anime character
How much time did the first one took to make?
'Cause lemme tell ya this shit's never commin' out
No really, I think they're gonna give up or something.
Just posting a pic of a random battle for you guys
>Ripping off of Nintendo, and trying to generate hype like Sm4sh
What a fucking asshole, he thinks his shitty flash games actually means anything to anyone
Lame, the japanese have already been working on a Super smash bros. system for Mugen.
I actually really like Crusade's Ridley moveset and feel like it's a good proof of concept for a Project M clone engine character or something Crusade's core gameplay is shit and leagues below Flash 2 as far as autistic fan games go I actually like Flash 2's gameplay better than Brawl and 64
Actually, Turbo mode is pretty fun. And, it makes it feel like a fighting game on its own, with combos and stuff, you know, stuff that requires skill
Not shit like dodging&grab spam
Are YOU retarded?
>Bandai Namco Games
Did you not see the smash direct where sakurai said he was at bamco headquarters?
I like his moveset too
also, another pic
my thread got deleted and now my friend hates me
you should have all believed me when you saw the roster
>Trying to derail a good thread with your "leak"
Why don't you just watch the video that came with the link? It just the Super smash bros. system. All you would have to do is make stages, and characters or put in characters.
Do you fuckers know how much work goes into all these custom sprite? Compare OP's image to OP's video. That and perfecting the engine is what took 7 years, even then first few years were the devs just dicking around until they realized how serious they were about the project. There's a reason why stuff like >>254279740 steals SSF2's sprites because they are that good.
I totally respect the creator(s?) and their dedication to this project, I had actually forgotten about this shit for a few years. Super happy that it's still happening. Downloading the latest demo now. I'm excited. I feel 14 again.
>Been following nonstop since 2007
>It's almost done
It's incredible. I can't believe it. They started this when I was in Middle School.
It's so amazing to see it so close to done. I've been playing since the first demo and I still can't believe how far this shit has come.
>play as Ichigo
Well i know who i'm playing when the online comes out, he's also got the best recovery move with his helicopter blade spin.
They have options where you can set what key is what
You could get joy to key or something like it to make controller inputs keybaord inputs
I swear more people should learn form binding of isaac, don't make games in flash, I guess these guys have spent 7 years on this so no point in restarting now but still
Holy shit I had no clue the roster was changed that freaking much. I mean who could have expected that from this: https://web.archive.org/web/20090712021422/http://www.mcleodgaming.com/ssf2sprites/
That's different from the main character of a game that's always on the box cover of each game in the series. You needn't have ever played the games, but you would know that Isaac is from those Golden Sun games.
The only thing Nintendo C&Ds is stuff the creator's want them to like Gamefreak not liking the idea of a pokemon MMO.
Sakurai lets PM stay alive so it's safe to say he doesn't give a fuck the same way a faggot like you gives a fuck.
*takes out twin demonic sabers*
*teleports underneath you and slices you in half with my scythe*
I thought Bowser looked too mean at first, but he's still cute :)
*fastly rolls out of the way, slashing you in the process*
*teleports above you and slices you in half with my scythe again*
That someone being able to recognize that a pokemon is a pokemon is a lot different than someone being able to recognize that this specific RPG character is a Golden Sun character.
Time for my ultimate special!!!!!
Never, because I KILLED HIM
*laughs demonically as I downward slash Blade*
*looks toward Spikeman with a devilish grin*
Again. On all the boxes. Main character. Basically the emblem for the series. It's not nearly as popular as Pokemon, but neither are a lot of things you would expect anyone who at least shops for their own video games to know.
The point being that it's a handheld only series, and guess who handhelds are aimed towards: kids, so it's just stupid to call anyone underage for not knowing a hanhdeld only character.
I'm actually getting nostalgic looking at these godawful sprites. It's like I'm actually back in 2007 again.
Maybe I'll play it if they finish this fucker
>looking through the affiliates section
>all those dead websites
>all those sprite comics I never read
I shed a single tear.
Naw fuck that.
Pokemon is a handheld series because handhelds are aimed mostly at kids. You're the delusional one here bub.
Their home consoles aren't specifically aimed at anyone, unlike their handhelds.
You think that's weird?
Check this shit out:
Fucking "Hype the Hedgehog"
For real though, I'd play the shit out of a Worms Worm
Sonic recolors are small-time. Try edgy Kirby recolers: >https://web.archive.org/web/20081021142520/http://ssf2expansion.yforum.biz/submit-expansions-f22/shadow-kirby-expansion-t649.htm
>K. Rule will be in this shitty game
>he will never be in Smash
>I'm pretty sure there are actual Kirby characters edgier than that
Hey now, they're tasteful with it, its always final/secret boss material and its good contrast with the rest of the world being so cute
Also the real shadow kirby is just a grey kirby from mirror world, these guys took it to mean he should have exaggerated DURKNESS attacks, that's edgy
I got banned from that site years ago, I thought they were doing a shit job at this, seems like they got better but I don't why they put so much effort into this and it took forever to make. This shit was being made when brawl was announced like holy shit how fucking long is it gonna take these fuckers
They tried to advertise their game on Spriters Resource and a hilarious shitstorm ensued.
A mod went on a power trip and deleted a bunch of great threads, so it might not still be around.
Actually I remeber this Mugen mod called Super Smash Bros Showdown but it got taken off then later the forums was shut down. Wish I knew a link or something
Funny that guy who did the Ness spirit calls himself Naruto[NU] and thats literally the only spirit that guy did
Now I said Mcleod Gaming was bad but Spriters Resource is probably the worst forums I've ever been to, everyone on that site is a terrible person that needs their shit handed to them
>not mentioning the most broken character
>Mozzy, Zee and Grooveman.exe's general corrupt mod behavior
>spriting contests devolving into a popularity contest
>popular users getting mod powers merely because they're popular
>getting -1 rep'd by the entire forum because a popular user -1 rep'd you
>all that circlejerking
I wish I could get back all the time I wasted trying to gain that shitty community's respect. I haven't been on there in years. I should have spent my time on Pixel Joint.
>time I wasted trying to gain that shitty community's respect
Man you too? That place was hell they weren't only shit people they had shit views on video games
>They said TLoZ Spirit Tracks looked like shit because of it's trailer
Man that place was sick, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who realized this, I wonder how many others fell victim to this shit? I wanna hug them
