Anyone else feel bad for Sakurai?
This man puts so much into this game. He had significant health issues due to the stress of making the last game, and went in on his birthday this year to make this one happen. He loves for things to be surprises. He even removed the subspace thing from this one due to people uploading cutscenes and not having it be a surprise for people who bought the game to enjoy. He loves this series, and is a fan as much (if not easily more) as anyone on this forum. All he would ask from us is to not spoil his fun, and let the game be a surprise.
And then, the leaks happens.
So here we have Sakurai, who has worked so hard and asked so little, and some ass wipe comes in to have his 10 min of fame and ruin the one thing he asked not to do.
I thought the same. The "fun" thing is, that the leaks happened just some weeks before the release so it must really rustle his jimmies.
How did he react when Brawl was leaked?
Well, he got pretty mad when the SE cutscenes were posted on Youtube, just imagine how he is right now.
The game is pretty close to launch, but at least Duck Hunt was going to be the big final reveal.
I have a feeling that not everything is lost. I suppose the leaker only got a portion of the game for feedback and it's not the final version. There are still some surprises, especially with the Wii U coming out later this year.
Well, maybe if he had made a exciting roster that would have caused a real shitstorm out of excitement and surprise instead of one of disappointment then people wouldn't be so willing to leak his piece of shit of game.
He removed subspace for the wrong reason then. If he acknowledged it was a shit mode then I would be more confident in the guy, but because of cinematic leaks? fucking really now?
Health problems shouldn't be an excuse everyone goes through shit it's fucking life deal with it, plus he's had way more time to work on these new games compared to melee so it should be a pretty comfortable working schedule by comparison.
And no I don't feel bad for him because he makes money doing what he loves.
he's smart and a smart man knows these things are bound to happen, so even if he was slightly disappointed I don't think it will affect him that much
Plus, not that much people actually follow leaks, it's not like it will go on national TV or something
>Sakurai removed subspace from smash 4 because all the cool cutscenes were put on youtube
>sakurai doesnt add newcomers for smash 5 because someone leaked the newcomers for smash 4
>take the same game from gamecube
>recolor some stages (because lets face it, the level design is the same) from different nintendo games
>add some unused nintendo characters
>give them 4 moves each and a special final attack
>there are retards who get hyped for this shit in 2014 still
If this is all true, I wont like Sakurai anymore. It's very clear he has his own agenda for these games instead of making Smash a celebration of Nintendo's history. Instead of having original characters like Ice Climbers, K. Rool and a proper Ganondorf, we get a nauseating amount of anime characters from games that are 2 years old. I'm praying these videos are fabricated somehow.
He really doesn't owe you faggots anything, the man put so much work into a game that it takes a toll on his health and you still complain. Sakurai makes the game how HE wants it, this is HIS artistic vision.
He's going to be pissed and you know it.
And you're underestimating just how much and how fast a leak can spread.
If Sakurai removed SSE because that got leaked, just imagine what will happen after this.
not believing in a leak is usually justified
leaks are pretty much seen as true until proven false, so people go to a lot of measures to see if it can be proven false
people who deny leaks usually jsut dont beleive everything they hear over the internet
but if someone were to deny the leaks now after all the videos and shit, then they would be idiots
This quote has never been more relevant until now:
>Have you ever made a game?
>He will add in a scrapped/unfinished character at the last minute to BTFO of leak believers
Authors write the books they want, directors make the movies they want, developers make the game they want. No one is going to give a checklist detailing what you want to see.
>no Bandanna Dee
I know he was about as likely as a Goomba making it into Smash, but its still sad to see him not make it.
The leak really is real?
I was really excited to see the new announcement trailers too.
> went in on his birthday this year to make this one happen.
The fuck is that supposed to mean? He went to work on his fucking birthday? WHAT A FUCKING MARTYR! LET HIS NAME BE ENGRAVED IN STONE!
I dont feel bad for him at all. He removes characters that people love(Mewtwo, Snake, Wolf), makes games slower for casual players while casual players could play Melee casual also.
>The gamecube is 13 years old
>If somebody started playing games when they were 5, and they are 18 now, they would have started with the gamecube
>mfw Sakurai stops making Smash Bros. games because people will always continue to leak when he just wants to keep things a surprise
The franchise will die and it's will be our fault.
I understand the sentiment, believe me, I do...
But isn't that a hazard of the job?
You just can't expect things like this to not happen.
But, he should feel honored that people care -this much- about the leaks.
If he didn't want leaks to happen then why was he so open to gameplay footage? Couldn't you just not let the players play it until the game is actually released?
Considering the terrible choices he made (cutting down on reps from small series to make room for more Mario characters) I'm not sure I feel he is competent enough to do another Smash Bros.
How can he hate you when he doesn't realize you exist? He doesn't even follow competitive Smash outside of Japan. You were never the target audience for any of the Smash titles.
>not realizing its a clip from a dunkey video
Because he's a new first-party Nintendo character from a fairly recent critically acclaimed IP on the Wii, which is also getting a sequel on the Wii U. So adding Shulk will help promote the next game.
USE YOUR FUCKING BRAIN DIPSHIT. FUCKING THINK!
I really, really agree with this thread. This man gets disappointed by the industry a lot, but keeps strutting through it and doing his thing. He's a lone wolf of game design, but he's no Phil Fish. I kind of want to send a giant apology letter to him, like the get well card /v/ did for Iwata a while ago.
Lel, Samurai just wants to make games the way he wants but he never gets a break.
>"Smash Bros. led to similar misunderstandings when it first came out," Sakurai said. "Some people, including within the company, commented that they couldn't imagine a worse game. The project was really saved by the fact that people "got" how to play it after it was released. If we had just listened to the complaints and instituted health gauges or command-based special moves, I don't think we would have invented a new style of play that way.
except tourneyfags don't force everyone to play the game the way the want to play it. Tourneyfaggotry was always an option, and only the most autistic of the bunch would have you believe otherwise.
And Sakurai never "forced" you to play Brawl. You can play 64, you can play Melee, you can play Project M. God forbid he makes anything that deviates from the formula, like when he first made Smash Bros, amirite?
I don't feel sorry for him considering he made Brawl terrible just to spite a specific group of people in his game's fanbase.
You don't let something that petty get in the way of a video game without being a worthless human being.
Smash will always be JUST for "i play for fun XD" faggots and even though I hate tourneyfags, they get fucked over for no reason at all whatsoever.

>"The ESRB has never had a breach of secrecy in twenty years of rating every single game in North American retail"
So this is a first then? Asuming this is really true, the leaker guy's head will roll for sure if he's found.
This is a huge hit to ESRB's image in the eyes of publishers.
I'm sad that they're not in the game.
Unless Sakurai is planning to sell them as DLC, I'm sad. Farewell.
its the zoe quinn shit man
two days ago I saw someone who kept posting memeshit openly state that they came from reddit no one told them to fuck off
As a conservative estimate, there have been roughly 40 billion leaks up until this point and people have been justified in calling bullshit every single time. It still may prove true for this one too.
I'm at the point where I don't care anymore. We'll know the full roster in a few weeks regardless.
yeah, i %100 agree. i never saw any cinematic leaks, wtf. the majority of people didn't. the only people that were spoiled were those that went and looked for it on youtube, they were asking for it. same goes for those who complain about the new leaks, you didn't have to click on the link, you didnt have to be on /v/ where you're obviously going to see leaked shit if it gets out.
i did think subspace was shit though. i'm glad he got rid of it, even for the wrong reasons. the manpower was probably allocated to more important areas of the game.
the faggot is over exagerating
what actually happned was samurai made smash 64 a game which appealed to as many people as possible and didnt get too competitive
smash melee ended up being much more competitive than he wanted making a much more steep competitive curve
because of this he tried his best to seperate brawl from melee to be more like how he wanted 64 to be
>inb4 user was banned for this post
>He even removed the subspace thing from this one due to people uploading cutscenes and not having it be a surprise for people who bought the game to enjoy.
Yes, because replacing it with nothing to enjoy is such an improvement.
Sakurai is autistic as fuck.
no there werent, the bans were to people saying shit like "reddit is better than 4chan" and shit
there have been plenty of people announcing they came from reddit, and I bet even more people who came but didnt announce it
I took the pictures.
I sent them to my friends.
I didn't want them to leak.
I just wanted to share the hype with them.
Now I'm FUCKED because some asshole put them all over the internet.
>Do you feel bad for an aspie who stresses over nothing important
Meanwhile, in a veterans nursing home...
>you cant feel bad for guy A because guy B has it worse
people like you are the fucking worse
by your own logic we shouldn't feel bad for war vets because someone, somewhere is most likely getting murdered right now
He removed SSE because videos were posted on youtube. I legitimately hope he cancels this game as a result of this leak. It would be hilarious and, lets face it, much more entertaining than the actual game.
"Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead."
You're a fucking retard.
Sakurai has always made the Smash games based on the target demography of the console the game was released on. The Gamecube was aimed towards more advanced gamers, so Melee is more technical. The Wii was aimed towards people who are new to video games, and Brawl reflects that. The Wii U is aimed towards both groups so Smash 4 should be somewhere in between Melee and Brawl.
your name, your legacy, and livelihood on the line for millions of people's scrutiny. Yeah, just ignore it....
The reason you get to a position like that is by having people trust your decisions, when you double back on yourself you get things like kojima having to change the ending to MGS 4 from what would have been perfection
>was going to avoid 4chan for a couple of weeks when the nip version releases

fuck you all
>trying to avoid leaks

It's your own damn fault.
>Sakurai must be sooo upset that people leaked part of the roster!
>Haha take that Sakurai! That's for not putting my favorite literally who character in the game!
LEL keep crying bitch nigga
Nigga I was never interested in Smash 4 anyways. It's literally Brawl but with a worse roster.
It's like Melee had a bad roster full of clones but was a great game. Smash 4 has the bad roster full of clones but keeps the bad gameplay from Brawl.
>He even removed the subspace thing from this one due to people uploading cutscenes
Don't buy that crock of shit. He removed Subspace because it fucking sucked and ate up huge amounts of development time.
I wasn't aware /v/ turned in to a hugbox. Make this discussion on /vg/ if you want a circlejerk about how you all hate the leakers for confirming the game as shit and how you feel bad for Sakurai.
Sakurai is an insane, autistic, cruel and spiteful bastard, on top of that he can't stop sucking his own dick.
All these clones, ganondorf still the same, dark fucking pit are bullshit, brawl was bullshit too. Samurai is a nigger.
I'm not buying this shitty game.
Me. I had doubts about the game before but this roster is absolutely awful. Too much emphasis on Kid Icarus characters and way too many clones. This combined with the gameplay just being rehashed from brawl
Even Megaman, Mac and Pacman can't salvage this.
>/v/ will stop giving a shit within a week of this until the game is released
Might as well laugh now while the shots hitting the fan hardest
And Melee's roster sucked.
Each new unlock was like a blow to the balls.
>Dr Mario? What?
>Whoa, Falco! Oh, all his moves look just like Fox's
>Roy? Hey, he just does the same shit Marth does!
>OH MY GOD GANONDORF! Wait a minute. There's something familiar here...
>Pichu? I can't. No more.
Zelda, Peach, Bowser, Game and Watch, and Mewtwo were all great additions. Marth too, but it's not like we knew that. But clones, despite taking less time to implement are made of pure anti-hype. I would have taken Dedede over all five of them any day.
>Too much emphasis on Kid Icarus characters
I don't care, and it'll probably be reasonably successful. Most will drop the game after about a week though.
Smash 4 has a similar clone filled roster without the good gameplay.
And that's why it's a bad game,
He does work hard, yes, and I will buy the game for Wii U anyway.
But the rooster still makes me feel bid sad. I mean he added ROB and Duck Hunt Dog to it aswell as Pacman. He gaved them unique movesets so everything is possible.
Yet he adds clones.
I just hope they feel different.
Ayy retard, are you saying it's a bad thing that people are excited about his game?
no, fuck this hack
how was this roster planned from the beginning of the development?
it feels like they literally scrapped together some bottom of the barrel C list characters at the last minute
aside from the third parties and little mac, this roster is just awful
mario got 3 new characters, not even important ones, kid icarus got two more, wii got 4 original movesets, and yet star fox, metroid, and dk, are left with 2
not to mention ice climbers are cut
what the fuck was he thinking? it's just baffling
I really wasn't planning on buying it, but the leak didn't help
>ganondorf still a clone
>wario is still not wario
>fucking dark pit
I might wait to buy this or maybe even not at all.
Firstly, WRONG. He's not a fucking clone. He'll have totally different moves.
He is not going to have a cape, the water bullshit or anything else a DOCTOR should not have. Stop being retarded.
You have me there. I'm very surprised they made such a bad decision with him.
I don't even recall anyone saying this faggot was in, but he was ALWAYS a clone, so he doesn't fucking even count. He's not NEW, it's not like they decided for this game to make a clone and that was falco, they just didn't change him. Seriously?
Only if you think Roy was a clone (he wasn't) and she isn't.
How the hell is he a clone? His moves don't look like anyone else's that I know of.
Again, he was fucking always a 'clone' and even then, he's actually NOT a clone. His physics are different and his attacks have different effects too. You know his aerial down A? Notice how he doesn't immediately plummet to the ground like Li- Oh who am I kidding, you're too stupid to notice things.
>wario is not wario
We don't need that stupid fag in the game and he's completely different from the other marios so what the hell are you actually complaining about?
>fucking dark pit
Yeah, fuck characters with original movesets
A character created only a few years ago that only appeared in one game that wasn't even that successful does not deserve to be in this game when there are more long running and more beloved franchises that could use a new rep like Donkey Kong, Zelda and Metroid
>clones don't count if they've been in multiple games
>even though falco and ganondorf have some different moves they are clones
>but this doesn't apply to dark pit, toon link and dr mario
>i'm going to assume that dark pit isn't a clone even though the leak says he is a clone and he is bundled together with the other clones
>Lucina isn't a clone even though Sakurai himself said that she was exactly the same as marth but without the tipper damage
>Shulk isn't a clone even though he shares multiple moves with marth including smashes and his up and down specials
You are so incredibly retarded i don't know how you can even function.
>what the fuck was he thinking? it's just baffling
Is it really?
>have a bunch of characters in mind
>get an idea for a moveset for a character
>add him in
>does X franchises need to reps
>add him in
>think up a moveset for the character
>Firstly, WRONG. He's not a fucking clone. He'll have totally different moves.
>He is not going to have a cape, the water bullshit or anything else a DOCTOR should not have. Stop being retarded.
why are these good things?? they wasted dev time on completely boring and useless characters that nobody wants, when there's already character customization in the game
if you're going to waste dev time on cloneish characters, give us ones we already like, like lucas and wolf
it just feels like a gigantic 'fuck you' to the fans to fill up the roster with this crap, and take away things that you know they want
>Only if you think Roy was a clone (he wasn't) and she isn't.
Dude, right from Sakurai's mouth we have proof that she's a clone. She's not Roy at all, she's Marth with no Tipper. She's a clone, deal with it. She wasn't even intended as a character at first she was a costume, the only reason her Tipper is remove is literally so she can have at least one difference compared to Marth.
>How the hell is he a clone? His moves don't look like anyone else's that I know of.
He's a second clone of Marth.
Items are throw away generic weapons and the Wii U stage is even bigger than fucking New Pork. Joint highest enemies in smash run (with Mario, both at 16) and Palutena has four movesets worth of special moves. Pit go a moveset revamp, meanwhile Ganondorf. Several assist trophies as well but whatever.
Meanwhile fucking Donkey Kong.
Not a god damn move that Shulk used in that leak was Marth's.
>Even though falco and ganon have some different moves, they are clones
Do you realize you just made the argument for how they are NOT clones? Which... they're not? I mean, I was giving you those two out of kindness, but you just defeated yourself, it's priceless.
My god you are fucking retarded.
First of all, Dark Pit is a clone the leak fucking says so.
Secondly, you are assuming that Dr Mario isn't going to have those things, and even if he doesn't have those things it's still fucking retarded that time was wasted on him to begin with.
Third, you can't say that Ganondorf and Falco are clones and then pretend that toon link, dr mario and lucina aren't.
fourth, we have seen that shulk shares multiple moves with Marth, yes he has some unique moves but by your bullshit logic he is as much of a clone as Falco and ganondorf.
Wrong, he is a confirmed clone
You're assuming here, but he is bundled with the other clones.
Just because Ganondorf and Falco have been clones since melee doesn't make things better, it makes them worse.
Sakurai himself said Lucina is a clone.
He is another clone of marth.
Shut the fuck up.
I don't know anyone that likes wolf, but anyway, It would've been better if they were skins, but they still need voices and taunts of their own, not to mention an announcer thing for their names, so why not be a slot? It's not really costing us any other characters.
Uuuh, that's really the only different that matters with Roy too. So... What the fuck?
>second clone of marth
I don't see what the hell you're talking about.
Shulk has Marth's up b and down b moves and maybe even his neutral b.
I didn't defeat myself either you fucking retard, i'm saying your backwards bullshit logic for deciding what a clone is and isn't is retarded.
>I was giving you those two out of kindness
More like you are fucking retarded and you can't even form a coherent argument.
Well, that is the definition of a clone, so... Yes?
>Uuuh, that's really the only different that matters with Roy too. So... What the fuck?
Roy had some more subtle differences Lucina did not have. Lucina is literally Marth but with no tipper.
I don't know why people are trying to convince themselves she has more differences when we literally have Sakurai saying she doesn't have any differences aside from having no Tipper.
No. My argument for the other three is sound, regardless of what you think and as you said, since falco and ganon also have differences, they are just as much not clones, you proved, given that my argument for the other three is unrefuted and objectively true, that ganon an falco are also not clones.
Maybe because this roster is the best yet and has about ten new characters that are all hype-worthy?
Are you saying that Roy isn't a clone because of the tipper AND fire on his neutral B? Are you arguing that one more tiny difference is enough to make him not a clone, but Lucina is? Because if so, I have to say, you have autism. Please go see a doctor and get diagnosed.
All things aside, the worst part about this leak is the confirming of Falcondorf.
Are you fucking kidding me, Sakurai? You couldn't make him not a clone over THREE FUCKING GAMES?
Well, that's not true, I exist. Palutena, Lucina and Robin are all characters I want and I'm even excited for Rosalina, Paccy, Greninja and the Wii Fit Trainer. I like all of those. That's not even considering my happiness at Sonic returning.
I don't remember physics differences, but the point is, she's basically Roy. Okay, maybe there's a few small differences, but she's replacing Roy. And most people agree that Roy is not a clone.
>Everyone who has a Wii U will buy Smash Bros.
>Even if they own the 3DS version already.
>implying I'm going to buy Sakura's Masturbation Simulator 2014: Featuring Pit, Paluetana and Dark Pit from the Kid Icarus series
Fuck it, I'll say it.
Honest fucking question, as someone who's played every Smash Bros since the first, how in the fuck are you people excited about the game after the leak? It's... shit. Total shit. It's the exact same fucking game. You say he's worked hard, but he's done nothing at all new. What is wrong with you people? What's here to be excited about?
Nigger, Roy has some really stark differences to Marth and also happens to be worse in every regard. He's a clone of Marth but is worse at everything.
Lucina is a clone of Marth in EVERY WAY. She plays EXACTLY like Marth without the tipper.
I assure you I will not. I don't want to get burned again like with Brawl. If the actual gameplay turns out to be good I will get it, but this is after release.
Have you ever made a game?
Slower run speed, faster falling speed, shorter jump, he's basically a more ground oriented, aggressive Marth although a lot of his moveset flaws counteract that. Lucina is pretty much the same as Marth from what we've seen so far, just without the same reward.
Saying it's bait doesn't disprove me. What's new? A few new characters? It's a fucking carbon copy of Melee with a facelift. I give Call of Duty shit for being a rehash, but at least you can actually see some changes within a 10 year period.
I like every single newcomer aside from charizard, who isn't a newcomer, actually. My main has returned as well, which I didn't expect. Sonic, that is. So fuck you. This game has a much better roster than the other games. What got cut that was worth anything? ROB? G&W?(if he's even cut) Ice Climbers? The worst. Lucas? Wolf? No big deal. Wolf was trash. The ONLY character that has been cut that anyone will really miss is Snake.
up until brawl, smash had really fun gameplay. The nintendo characters fighting thing wore off by the time brawl hit, but the hectic battle royal didn't. Melee pokeball battles are among my favorite gaming experiences
No donkey Kong since 64 has been good. It's uch worse that he's in it than Kid Icarus. Ness is not popular in the states either. But he's okay, I guess. Anyway, doing things to sell games is nothing new. It's the sole reason for Lucina being in the game, Toon Link too. Not to mention Yoshi and Villager.
This is exactly what I'm saying, it's just different characters, that's it. Absolutely nothing of substance. If Smash Bros came out on PC, and was moddable, the series would die just like that, because every game is fucking identical with different fucking characters.
>Robin, Palutena, Mii Fighters, Rosalina, Little Mac and Mega man
>all original characters with their own unique movesets
>Robin being in even marks the edition of a fucking MAGE (don't cite zelda, she sucks)
>implying that means jack shit when Kirby, FE, KI and Mother are boring as fuck
Yeah I love how they copy the fucking stupid style of banjo kazooie instead of maintaining the series' roots and I love even ore than that how those games are FUCK-easy because you have to take literally twice as many hits to die. I love them not using K. Rool any more, which would be like not using Bowser in new mario games and the icing on the cake is definitely the bad game design that forces you to stop every few seconds and break all fluidity and progress of the stage to pull up on a lever or some other inane and unnecessary bullshit that ONLY draws shit out and adds no depth at all.
Do not tell me that those are good games. I have more than a few reason for why they are utter trash.
Trust me, in the next Smash, Phosphora, Medusa, Magnus, the 12 year old in the back of the Reset Bomb Forest stage, and the Captain N version of Pit will all be playable characters with 30 minute long intro videos.
Smash Bros is a fighting game. As far as I'm concerned, you can't spoil a fighting game because it's not something that spoilable.
It's like trying to spoil minecraft. How the fuck do you spoil minecraft?
did you say you can't spoil hidden characters in smash bros
did you call smash bros a fighting game
did you just compare smash bros to minecraft
is this post b8
Then what is Mario Party?
>you wanted more than that
Tripping is gone, they fixed the physics, everything is faster, god what LEVEL of baby-face are you? 999?
I'm not going to be any less hype/surprised when the stuff is officially revealed. Hell, the Haggar leak for MvC3 didn't stop me from feeling like king of the world when he was officially revealed.
>BTFO Miyamoto and made Kirby pink instead of yellow because he can
>created a subgenre of fighting games despite opposition from his company
>picks up a dead franchise from 21 years ago and remakes it into a completely different genre and it sells
>his "worst" game is the best selling fighting game of all time
>lol 3 of his newcomers got leaked I bet he's crying right now
>completely forgetting Gematsu already leaked every single previous newcomer minus Lucina
>totally not a samefag
Yes, it is. It is a game designed for multiplayer of some kind, mainly local (I.E, PARTYING, HERP A FUCKING DERP) that is basically for casuals who just need something fun to do that the whole family can take part in and play without extensive knowledge of the game.
You know, what Smash Bros is.
Jesus fuck, how new are you to 4chan?
32 seconds apart, so no, we're not samefagging.
Again. If you're saying that "party game" is something like Mario Party then Smash Bros is not a party game, by your own definition. If what you're saying is that all multiplayer games that can be played locally are party games then you're a fucking retard.
>the whole family can take part in
As in, not blowing people's faces off. Call of Duty is also incredibly elitest and requires [extensive knowledge of the game]. Have you ever tried explaining to your mom what you did to make a plane come out and start gunning everyone down? Or... why a nuke just went off and killed everyone? How about the difference between all these automatic rifles?
You didn't read anything I said. Okay. No, they're both 'party' games because they're both games for casuals designed for multiplayer with a group of friends, that you can easily get into, with fun characters lots of people know. God, please go already.
Do you not understand the reasoning for why this is the kind of game people would play at a PARTY, but Call of Duty isn't? I mean, if you don't get it, you're ACTUALLY retarded.
>requires [extensive knowledge of the game]
I needed that laugh. It's harder teaching someone how to recover in smash than it is to teach how to play cod
>3 (three) years of development
>Not enough time to put in heavily demanded characters like Ridley or returning characters like Snake or IC
>Enough time to put in Dr Mario, Dark Pit, 4 (four) FE reps, and ROB
>Enough time to put in a bunch of trophies that nobody gives a shit about after looking at them once
>Enough time to put in game modes that everybody will only play for the first 3 months and then they will just play versus battles with their friends
If all the clones were just alts, there'd be fewer characters; they didn't take anyone's "slot"
So you'd rather Sakurai put less work into alts? I thought he was lazy!
>Kid Icarus has 3 reps, one of which (Dark Pit) is a literal clone
>Only reason Dark Pit got in is because Sakurai is throwing in characters from his own games
There's so many other characters I'd put in besides fucking Dark Pit of all things, and Dr. Mario. Fucking lazy cunt
>We're going to cut down on the clones this time around
>Meanwhile Lucina, Shulk, Ganondorf, Dark Pit, and Dr. Mario are in
It's probably not a huge difference in terms of work, okay? I doubt Lucina took much more time than Wii Fit Guy did... And Falco was probably only a little harder to do than Villager's skins. I mean, aside from adding a voice, they're still reusing the same wire frame and moveset, so....?
>mash buttons in smash
>tumble slowly to death
>hold trigger while running foward
... I'm sorry. I didn't know. It's just, I've never actually talked to someone with a mental handicap, I... I just didn't recognize it, I'm so sorry if I offended you. Umm.. Where's your caretaker, is there someone I can... give you to..? To keep you safe..?
I'd rather Sakurai make Ganondorf an actually interesting character with moves from his own game and not a clone, and I'd rather Sakurai make Dr. Mario an alt instead of an actual, roster space wasting piece of shit clone.
When he said recover, I don't think he was talking about from the ground. I think I was talking about when you're flying through the air to the screen edge thing
Which is still not amazingly hard
> 10 Minutes of Fame
If it's real, the fool didn't blur out the name on the kit. ESRB will be able to trace back who did it, fire them, and they'll never work in the industry again with a high chance of criminal charges put upon him for breaking NDA.
Why does Sakurai keep removing shit from the game?
>N64=Z-cancel on aerials to remove landing lag was actually part of the game. Combos were a thing and so was hitstun.
>Melee=L-cancel was in the game but not acknowledged. Combos were possible and the game had less hitstun than N64 but it was still good. Good speed and momentum, overall physics feel good.
>Brawl=Nothing. No hitstun, no combos, fuck you. Float to the moon.
>Smash 4= Nothing. Fuck you even harder. Every attack sends you flying as if you were at 100% because I said so you cunt, you're gonna buy my game anyway. Don't forget to buy the figures, dipshit.
Does he think that combos are somehow "competitive" now? That shit is like the basics of the basics for Smash, ever since 64. Or did the success get to his head and he forgot where he came from? Fucking Sakurai.
How is moving faster also a "competitive" or a "tourneyfag" thing as well? Has it ever occurred to him that even the casual players want to get good with their favorite characters without having to deal with restricted movement and gimped physics?
I'm gonna wait for Smash 4. If it's just as shit as Brawl, I'm fucking done with Smash until Sakurai fucks right off. He's one of the only fuckers in the industry that can REMOVE shit on purpose from his own game just to spite a few people and others actually cheer for him. It's one thing to hate a group of people, but it's another thing to fuck your own game to make them unhappy. That's fucking crazy and I'm amazed anyone on /v/ of all places actually get happy at shit like this.
They are not going to reply dude. Casual fags are literally the cancer that is killing our favorite hobby and /v/ is full of casuals.
I mean, /v/ unironically thinks that dark souls and rising, for example, are hard games. No matter what you say they will act as if they are right. Seriously, do not argue wtih CasualCancer-fags.
Instead of getin fucken gud, they complain about "le evil tourney-fags!".
Melee is one of the very few games that can be played casualy (like you obviously play it) and competitive. Why is that such a bad thing? I have fun playing it my way and you have fun your way. Why do you want us to not have fun so badly? What do you gain from our loss? I don't understand you people. I'm just sorry for them, in the end, they suck at games, that's where all this hate comes from.
Literally the only bad thing of the roster/game so far is the obvious shitty clone that is Dark Put. Everything else is golden and we don't even know all the characters yet. Thank you, Sakurai.
Then, don't buy it. Just ignore it, then. Nobody forces you to get Kerfuffle.
Who gives a shit, everybody outside of Japan is going to find out all the characters before getting a chance to play solely because of the staggered release. It doesn't matter whether it was now or after it launches in Japan, all of us were going to get spoiled before ever having a chance to touch the game.
If his fucking moveset is not the same, he is not a god damn clone. Jesus christ, who gives a shit if YOU like Kid Icarus? The point is that he'd be a NEW character and not the same fucking one. God, get over your stupid, "sakurai is biased' bullshit and learn that just because you don't like something doesn't mean it shouldn't be in the game. Complaining about a clone is reasonable, complaining because a character you don't like is in the game is not. If I did that, I'd be complaining about Fox, every fucking pokemon there is, toon link, charizard, yoshi and even fucking little mac. Stop.
The "leaked" video is just a mod of Project M.
>Shulk is nothing but ripped moves.
>Marth's up special
>Marth's down special
>Link's down air
>Project M Roy's up smash
>P.M. Roy's down smash
And people still think that video isn't just a mod.
>Bowser Jr. rolls on stage in a clown car. That doesn't seem right.
>He jumps abnormally too.
>He has Diddy Kong's B up.
>He uses Captain falcons up B.
>Uses a lot of Marth's and Link's moves.
>Just stands there on the victory screen.
It goes right to Yoshi for no reason.
Not to mention Shulk's audio is ripped directly from Xenoblade chronicles.
This is why I trust Sakurai, not any of these leaks:
>Bowser Jr. is a skin for villager. Notice the boxing gloves and the bowling ball? The cannonball could be a skin for the rocket where the villager could ride on too.
>Shulk = Marth Why would they have the same up-special?
>Ganon = Cpt. Falcon. I don’t think I have to explain this one.
Potato quality, inconsistent camera work and timing, sound quality is off and unbalanced.
>Nintendo took the videos down because the modders have done something illegal, thus Nintendo has basis to take legal action.
>Youtube's copyright system is terrible and anybody can impersonate anybody and make a copyright claim, and the system shoots first and asks questions later. In many cases you can make a copyright claim not impersonating anybody with an actual copyright and still have the video taken down.
>There have been "take downs" of confirmed fake leaks in the past.
There is an alarming amount of people here who seem to have little understanding of how Youtube's copyright system works..
I hope he croaks. Nintendo deserves nothing but the worst for being money hungry faggots
>hurr durr muh free online
Don't matter if the service is running on Dial Up servers. With Sony we pay but we get free games and a good working server to play with
>but we get free games
It's not free if you have to pay to access them
He keeps pandering an audience that doesn't care about the game, by removing things and making the game worse, Smash was always a game liked by everyone in it's early installments, so there was no need to drastically change mechanics.
So no, i don't feel bad, plus there are several devs who also puts all their efforts, this man is not much different.
>edge link and not-shit link
>I' actually talking to someone who likes Toon Link
Die, cis scum.
No but really, they're all the same character. they are both link. They're link from two different games.By your logic, if they put pit and young pit from the original kid icarus both in the game, that'd be fine because they're not the same. But.... they are. I mean *I* would argue they're more than different enough but that's clearly not enough for you.
NO HES A TOTAL HACK AND SHOULD DIE!
Those types of comments are why I feel bad for him, even if I agree Dark Pit and to an extent Palutena are unnecessary. My reasoning for them is that KI:U is a way better game than the amount it sold so I can understand him wanting to give it an extra push with this opportunity.
I bet you think also paid for that free item when you get something from a Buy 1 get 1 free sale you fucking retards. You Ninteyearolds really are clueless
>This man puts so much into this game
No he doesn't
He re-uses brawl's engine, it's assets, and all of its movelists because Ninty asked him to make another Smash in a desperate bid to save the WiiU
>Because the 3DS version doesn't exist
Them putting it out before the WiiU is a tacit admission that the WiiU will never sell, and they're trying their hand at becoming an entirely mobile game company
But they are giving shit away. During a Buy one get one free sale if you don't want the free item do you think you're still getting a discount? Nope you pay full price either way therefore free item
4 special moves for normal attacks 4 aerial attacks and 3 smash attacks
Not to mention other attributes like gravity, weight, jump height, etc. etc.
You're an ignorant faggot.
>He had significant health issues due to the stress of making the last game
Did he contract some mental illness? That might explain why he decided to bring back Dr. Mario and had 2 other Mario newcomers.
They were, that's why you guys are pathetic, people with common sense could see how this was different to any other leak, the amount of effort put into it was unreal for somebody to just fool a few nerds for one, two weeks tops. We could see and understand this...you kept coming with the most insane reasons it was fake like that retarded shulk and little mac picture
I missed the leaks and now they've gotten removed from YouTube.
Media link anyone? Thanks in advance.
