At least Pichu is actually its own character. Edge Pit is LITERALLY just a palette swap of Pit that was given it's own roster spot. Fucking ridiculous.

Dark Pit is the worst shit in Smash 4.
Honestly it basically shits on what would've been a great roster but Sakurai had to suck his own dick so hard when he jizzed it got all over the new Smash.

Why did no one stop him? Are the people he works with that afraid of getting fired they wouldn't just say "That's a good joke, Mr. Sakurai"?

Holy fuck. What a failure of a team.
>>
Decapre I don't care if she has different specials and normals. She was built up to be some super secret fighter that no one guessed(people did) and we ended up with a stupid fucking Cammy model rework. At least Dark Pit is a hidden character and wasn't built up for months.

It got 0 in Brawl. It deserved them considering it's still goddamn Mario, on top of those two being very unique.

>no characters that were heavily requested aside from little mac and megaman
The only "heavily requested" missed were Ridley and Mewtwo, maybe K.Rool. We also got popular requests such as Shulk, Palutena, Bowser Jr., THE MAIN CHARACTER FROM ANIMAL CROSSING. Plus two somewhat popular but still "weird" requests like Pacman and the Miis.

>cut unique characters
You mean character. Yeah IC will be missed.

>in addition to a single bad character and two others
Dark Pit, Lucina(which is awful just because she doesn't change much) and? Dr.Mario?
Still, the other newcomers more than make up for them.

No he's really not. Maybe if he likened Dark Pit to a vegetable he didn't like but others might, or something similar. But no he had to bring it into a "Thing I like is food, thing I dislike is human excrement" comparison that's really more hyperbole than actual analogy.

The reason I hate Dark Pit is because he was already in Brawl.
He doesn't have a unique model. He's literally Pit with an alternate color scheme, and that color scheme happened to be in Brawl already.

At least Pichu had his own fucking model.

>>265335876
It would've been less dissapointing. The only reason Dr Mario and Dark Pit were added was to pad out the roster in a series that has an endless supply of content to draw from.

Basically Sakurai is a hack and decided to shove more clones into the game even though he said he'd never do it again.

So he was already in the game but Sakurai gave him a little extra by tweaking Pit a little. How is Pichu better by having his own model?
>>
>all of these people acting like Dark Pit, Lucina, and Dr. Mario replaced other potential characters
Jesus Christ, people are dumb. I think the clones are awful too, but if they were alternate costumes/custom moves, it wouldn't miraculously free up the dev time to make three all-new characters - we'd just have 47 or so characters instead of 50 or so. The dev team only added them as easy space-fillers, to make the select screen look nice. Something like:
>Shit, we don't have enough time to add any more new characters, but there's a kinda ugly empty space on the select screen.
>Fuck it, let's just take a couple of those alternate costumes, tweak their moves a bit, and use them to fill the spaces.
It's not like they actively chose Dark Pit and Dr. Mario over Ridley and Klonoa and whoever the fuck people are crying over.

Sheik still has the Light Arrow inexplicably. Good thing Kirby, Dedede, and Pit all got new final smashes.

To be fair, Wolf was pretty much a brand new character compared to, say, Falco.

The only character people have any business being mad about being "replaced by a clone" is Lucas.
>>
>>265340521
I think the thing that hurts people were the cuts from Brawl to 4. Im sure quite a few people would trade all 3 of those folks for Wolf back, since even though Wolf had a similar special moveset to Fox they put his own spin on it and made him a unique character

The worst part about Decapre was how fucking long they built up and teased her, it got fans thinking it was gonna be a cool character
And then they got Mask Cammy.
At least Dark Pit was just a random last minute addition and the only teasing he got was at the end of Palutena's trailer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2zQNdB_U0k

>>265340631
Decapre was much worse than Dark Pit; the Smashfags had it easy in comparison. Dark Pit at least had some amusing lines and a nice theme in KI:U (so there were some people who at least liked him beforehand), whereas Decapre was literally a minor character from the Street Fighter comic books. Not to mention, Capcom had been cockteasing Decapre for ages and saying that she'd be a long-awaited reveal that would make the fans super-excited, whereas Dark Pit was just sort of... there in the Smash leaks without any fanfare or fuss.

Sheik got 1 new move, and one modified move, and was made her own character to help pad out the roster screen.

Yet she still has the Light Arrows because Sakurai decided his arm hurt too bad to actually work on the game.

>>265341058
Also unlike Decapre Dark Pit was at least made to please a certain crowd. Look at the polls he was pretty big in Japan and an easy addition to make

There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive…. In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.

>>265340820
True, but I rarely see people whining about the new clones replacing the ones that were cut - it's always "WHY COULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN A NEW CHARACTER" or "WASTE OF A SLOT." A lot of the clone additions are quick filler choices in all of the games, so their odds of making it to the next one are fairly low. And it's funny with regards to Wolf - when Brawl's roster first leaked, I remember people being similarly confused and upset by his addition (not quite as intensely as with Dark Pit, though). In the same vein, when Smash 5 comes around and one or more of these new clones gets the axe, there are going to be just as many people lamenting the absence of Lucina or Dark Pit.
>>
>>265341881
Dark pit may not take a newcomer slot but he still takes Dev time which is what all these faggots can't comprehend.
Sakurai flat out said that the 6 melee clones could've been an originak newcomer so these 3 could've EASILY been anything else.
He could've given Ganondorf some actual fucking original specials, or given that to toon link, or added an actual new 3ds stage for donkey Kong or Metroid, or made another assist trophy, or something.
ANYTHING would've been better. A waste of time is still a waste of time

>>265342062
My theory is that they were falling behind schedule and didnt want to push the game back any further so they wanted to bring in some easy and popular clones

>>265341848

She could've padded the roster in the two previous games, now she's got new specials and slot and Zelda got her new specials too. Keep grasping though.

She's the only one I find "acceptable" using the word very lightly. Sakurai said she got her own slot because she was too short and would've screwed with hitboxes if they forced it. But there is nmo excuse for doc and pittoey.
Mario could've just gotten a tornado custom move and a doctor Mario skin, and pit could've just kept his dark pit alt. There was no reason they had to have there own slot

Yeah, looking back, it was pretty unsubtle. But that's what I'm saying - with Decapre, Capcom led fans on a wild goose chase for months, constantly impying that it would be an addition that would make their jaws hit the floor and shit, only for it to be Cammy in a mask. Whereas with Dark Pit, it was pretty much just an, "oh yeah, this guy's in too" at the end of Palutena's trailer - like, pretty much admitting that he would be a neat addition for a few fans but otherwise not a big deal. The best analogy I can think of would be if Dark Pit were the only newcomer revealed at E3 2014.

Okay, well we'll say what edgy is. Edgy is basically someone who's melodramtic for the sake of being dark, who's into more cynical emotions because that's more 'real'(think anger, hate, depression, ANGST), and somehow at the same time doesn't care. Think Sasuke(Or new Dante), on the high end, and Shadow the hedgehog somewhere in the low to middle end.

Dark pit could be considered Edgier than Pit, but he's NOT edgy. Not at all, at best he's a cynic. The highest he gets on the 'dawkness scale' is Malfoy, who's still not that high.

As much as I still can't stand his inclusion, atleast he's like Wolf where he's mediocre and his original is better and isn't insulting as fuck like Pichu.

Plus there was Decapre, Marie in P4AU, Nova in UMVC3(but he's one of my favorite characters) and CyberSub-Zero

Dark Pit is by far the most 'clone' of the franchise's clones. He's almost statistically identical to Pit (Moves almost all KO at the exact same percentages, have the exact same weight class, have the same jump height and fall speeds, share all the same custom moves aside from side B), the literal only differences being his arrows (Of which he shares all of pits custom move arrows) and side B which just launches at a different angle. So I can see why he's disliked

Honestly I'm not bothered. Dark Pit had no effect on the overall roster, and thematically it sort of makes sense. The sort of 'shoulder angel and devil' thing going on, and being literal clones in their game...I mean I'm not defending it, just whatever.

I don't see how it ruins the roster though. Again, if Dark Pit weren't in it would just have been the exact same roster sans Dark Pit. It's a cute bonus. And since Smash 4 already has the most mechanically diverse roster in the series, the largest as well, and includes some big profile newcomers like Little Mac and Mega Man, there's no way anyone should let a bonus character somehow sour the mood

Okay, say you have 10 hours to develop characters. To develop a char it takes an hour and a half. By the time you reach hour 9 you have 6 full characters without enough time to make another. You decide to fill the roster up by spending half an hour each to make 2 clones.

That's fine, you don't have to. But saying he's just "emo pit" or "Coldsteel the Angel" is outright lying. Just say you don't like clones, and don't think KI deserved 3 reps, and call it a day. As someone who thinks Uprising is the best game to come out in years and even likes Dark Pit, I agree entirely. He shouldn't be in Smash.
>>
>>265345825
What they SHOULD have done instead was simply have Hades with fake angel wings making a play on Pit/Dark Pit's play style, where all of his normals and specials function similarly but hit harder and launch at weird angles.

Would've been more accepted than Dark Pit.

Pit is less unique than Melee's Falco. At least he had different fall speeds. Dark Pit doesn't even have that.

Electroshock arm is different from upperdash, and the arrows function differently (like a mix between Pit's and Link's). Not sure about normals, I'd have to look into it. I'll get back to you once the game is out in the US.
>>
>>265346324
His forward B launches people similar to a half-assed Captain Falcon forward B. The rest of his specials are exactly the same, save for recovery which launched him higher.

All of hit normals and tilts hit harder and have less lag, but he has slightly more trouble launching.

He's exactly like Pit, but arguably better.
>>
>>265346663

>Not sure about normals

Side-B KOes at 142 for Pit. KOes at 136 for Dark Pit. Pit's knock-back is about a 85 degree angle Star KO. Dark Pit's is around 65 degrees and KOes with the right blast zone.
F-Smash are exactly the same, KOing the training CPU Pit at 98% and no lower. Same knock-back angle.
Down Smash both KO at 153% and no lower. Same angle.
Up Smash KOes at 127 for Pit. KOes at 127 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
F-Tilt Sweet-spot KOes at 182 for Pit. KOes at 182 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
Up-Tilt also KOes at 182 for Pit. Koes at 182 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
Dash Attack KOes at 256 for Pit. KOes at 256 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
F-Throw KOes at 165 for Pit. KOes at 165 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
Up-Throw KOes at 210 with Pit. KOes at 210 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
B-Air sweet-spot KOes at 136 for Pit. KOes at 136 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
F-Air sweet-spot KOes at 161 for Pit. KOes at 161 for Dark Pit. Same angle.
I think that's enough. I can tell you from experience that Up-Air, N-Air, B-Throw, and the rest are exactly the same.

It doesn't ruin the roster. The point is that Dark Pit is the laziest addition to any Smash roster ever BY FAR. Originally I figured it was Lucina, but at least they averaged her damage between Marth's min-max, which probably took longer for them to program than implementing Dark Pit did.

No, they have the same wights and fallspeeds as well

Horizontally, they both die at 45% from a Fully Charged FSmash
-Vertically, they both die at 58% from a Fully Charged USmash

Unfortunately, I don't know if the Rage mechanic is active in training mode, but the main point to take from this is that they die at the exact same time as one another.

Next up, I decided to test how fast they run, using Gerudo valley. I'd have them run from the left most platform (where it's Shadow begins) all the way to the right blastzone, and time it to see how fast they run from that one point to the other. For both, it took 3.7 seconds for them to go from that point to where they die off the walk-off. Meaning they likely travel the same speed

How about in the air? I didn't really have a good way to test air movement, so I kept it simple. First I measured how high they could jump up, using the stage lights of Boxing Ring. Both reach the lights and clip through the middle point. Additionally, from the ring floor, their Up B's both reach JUST above the stage lights.

Next, fall speeds. Went to Gaur Plain, and timed both normal fall speed and fast fall speed with a stop watch. From the left highest point, falling down to the blastzone it takes both of them 2.2 seconds for normal fall, and 1.5 seconds for fast fall for them to reach the bottom. Meaning they move the exact same in the air as well.

I have played both, and can tell you that's just not true. The normals come out faster for Black Pit, and his specials generally are harder hitting and have more lag.

It sounds to me like the only logical choice for you is not to play.

Seriously, though, stick to Smash's Ryu and play Mario. Bonus: He's playable in the demo, so get to work getting used to him.

After that you might want to segue into someone like Bowser or Little Mac.

>>265347302
It likely took them longer to program Pichu's self-damage mechanic than it took for them to implement Dark Pit.

At any rate, Pichu at least had differences enough from Pikachu to be worth playing in spite of being the jokiest of joke characters. Pichu was the thinking man's character, requiring you to choose when to take the risk of whiffing your strong electric attacks and harming yourself, and when to use Pichu's normals that don't.

That's incorrect, look it up on Smash wiki. Complainers on /v/ are not the experts on Smash 4. They're too full of autistic rage and claim that Dark Pit is a color swap of Pit with no moveset differences instead of getting the facts. Dark Pit is also a tiny bit slower than Pit.

>>265347346
Nigga, Mario NEEDS his air game. I've mained him since the first game, and his all four of his directional air moves range from great to amazing. His Fair spikes, his Uair is fast and hits hard, his Bair is simply the best for launching people, and his Dair gets nice damage and a good launch upward.

Play Little Mac. You won't even have to thing about the air.

It's like playing a nuzlocke in Pokemon or using a single weapon type in your next bored run in Borderlands. It's a self-imposed increase in difficulty, except it's hard coded so you can't cheat. Yeah, you could play Kirby or any other character, but the fun was that Pichu required greated consideration for your inputs.

Like I said, Pichu was clearly a joke character even as a clone, but the funny part was that in spite of all that, Pichu legitimately forced you to play him differently than you might play Pikachu, and that set him apart from the rest of Melee's clones.

>>265348014
Charizard's Side-B now, I believe, does damage to Charizard, but if you hit you do some solid damage and crazy knockback. Other characters have self-damage mechanics in Smash 4, like holding D3's Jet Hammer too long, but I doubt we'll ever see a non-joke character that utilizes self-damage in the same overall manner that Pichu did.

Unless they bring back Pichu and declone him, but I wouldn't hold my breath there on either account.

Not really. It'd be one less thing to complain about, but people would still be complaining that they blew their load too early on the newcomer reveals and Duck Hunt Dog was the only real good surprise, the roster is too biased to certain franchises, the cuts especially Ice Climbers, and that giving so many unique attacks to the Miis and Palutena was time that could have been better spent elsewhere etc.

Why is Alph a costume but Dr. Mario/Dark Pit/Lucina are clones? You'd think if he was going to "promote" a costume into a clone, he'd pick one from a series that wasn't getting a newcomer already.

Tons of people were shitting on ROB and Wolf for ''wasting slots'', being disappointing last characters and such. ''SF doesn't deserve 3 reps'' was thrown around quite a lot.

I'm sure some history revisionist will reply to this post saying everyone was happy with those choices though, but the truth is that the backlash is no different than it was for Brawl's roster at the time.

Even though it is a repeat of "history" for the most part, there is a notable difference between Lucas/Wolf and Lucina/D-Pit, still - the former two have somewhat unique movesets, whereas the latter two are carbon copies with minor changed properties.
Ice Climbers being cut is very similar to Mewtwo being cut, however.
Long story short, I agree with you for the most part, yet I can't help but notice the drop in "quality".

People stopped giving a shit about Wolf and ROB because they found out they were fun characters and that no-one cared that their favorite character didn't get in instead.

People will never stop shitting all over Lucina and Dark Pit because they are in the upper echelon of lazy-as-fuck clones. In this case, people aren't pissed that Dark Pit and Lucina might have replaced 'muh faveohright fyturr', they're pissed because their mere existence is a middle finger not to just Smash fans of all kinds, but also to the consumer who knows even less than we do, or simply doesn't know any better.

That Sakurai has the gall to add characters to the roster with EXTREMELY minimal differences from their originating characters simply because he thinks they have slight differences and wouldn't have made sense as alternate costumes would've been grounds for a boycott if this wasn't Nintendo and Sakurai we were talking about.

tl;dr: Sakurai made some shit decisions and for all the wrong/bullshit reasons/excuses.

That's fine. It's more to the fact that Sakurai's clearly toeing the line to see what he can get away with in Smash that pisses me off the most. Seeing as how we have people that are fine with a fighter that is 99.9% another fighter, where that .1% comes from the slightly changed model and moodier voice acting, that does NOT bode well for Smash 6, if that ever comes along.

I just kinda pray that they decide to go with someone new for a possible Smash 6 some five or six years down the line, because going with Sakurai again will be tantamount to suicide for the franchise.

I'm okay with Dark Pitt. I mean he could have been a costume for Pitt, but at least he's just a clone.

Some retards seem to think it would be better if he had his own moveset. What they don't seem to understand is that sticking a clone in takes no work. If they had given him an entirely new moveset that would mean that they'd spent all those time and resources on him over absolutely any other unique character.

At least by including him in the game we get more great KI:U tracks on the soundtrack. I loved KI:U, and the more representation it gets, the better for me, but I would have preferred just about any other character from the series over Dark Pitt.

Anyway Decapre, DLC Lambda, the Raving Rabids in that TMNT game, Pichu in Melee, Starkiller in Soul Calibur and Miis were all equally bad or worse editions in their respective games.
>>
>>265350693

ROB is legitimately the only valid "wasted slot" argument since he's an original character with nothing shared between himself and other characters, but people who bitched after the game was out are fags because ROB is fun as hell.

>>265351674

Lucina I can KIND of understand as a replacement for Roy, who himself was a clone of Marth without tipping and was a little more powerful, if I remember correctly. Dark Pit would've been ok if he was a copy of Pit's Brawl moveset, but he's quite possibly the worst of the clones.

I think you have this completely backwards. The only reason people care is -because- it's smash. This shit wouldn't be a big deal in any other fighting game.

And I don't see how it's a 'middle finger' to consumers. The only difference is that they're a character instead of a costume. If you'd have made them alt colors for their respective original, it would just bet two less options and two less alt colors we'd have. I don't see how that can be justified as a good thing

>Don't fix what's not broken.
I assume that's what you were going for. The issue stems from the fact that Sakurai now has a crystal clear idea of what's acceptable and what's not acceptable for playable fighters in a Smash game, and he's discovered that there is nothing that he can do to Smash at this point that will be considered unacceptable to players. The guy has just discovered that he can do no wrong when it comes to Smash.

You'd better hope and pray someone else does Smash in the future. Someone who hasn't realized that there's no limits to what they can do and get away with preferably.

>>265353049
Except alts aren't celebrated and marketed on the website as completely separate and unique characters. You have to dig around on the internet for a while to know that Lucina and Dark Pit have extremely minimal differences, something the average consumer won't do.

That's fucked up. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it.

>>265353475
It's a middle finger to consumers because the game ships retail bragging that it has so many characters, when really there's technically two less than that amount. That's false advertisement where I come from.

It's like being talked into buying a car brand new for three years and realizing after you signed the papers that your air conditioner is just a bunch of those shitty battery-powered handheld fans hanging from various parts of the dashboard.

Sure, the car runs, and on the most technical-est and technicalities you can say the AC does too, but it's not what you were told you were buying.

Out of those 3, I like Lucina and DP and I know that there are others who like the Doc so it would be selfish to want them to be gone.

And I would rather Sakurai stay as the head of the Smash team cause I feel he does a wonderful job and wouldn't want anyone else doing it for fear that they will ruin the series.

>>265354020
Pichu had quite a few different timings, and he was both faster and did more damage than Pikachu. A few of his moves had different sweet spots too, in addition to him hurting himself. His hitbox was also a lot smaller and his roll was faster and covered more ground.

His quick mobility also allowed him to set up a lot of chain grabs and combos that Pikachu just couldn't pull off, and on tp of that his physical strikes had priority that matched some sword-users like Link.

That's leagues ahead of Pit Pallet Swap.

But Pichu is still nothing but a weaker Pikachu, who hurts himself and is super easy to K.O. You make it sound like Pichu is useful because he can chain grab, but he's still shit tier. At least Dark Pit can stand up to the rest of the cast, but Smash 4 doesn't seem to have characters that are just flat out weaklings, like Ness, and Kirby in Melee. As much as I love them, god they're terrible in Melee.
>>
Anyone who play Lucina is literally part of the cancer killing Smash
>>
>>265355483
No one gives a fuck if he was weaker. The point is that he was different. Time was taken to try and set him apart from the caste and make him stand out.

Dark Pit is fucking Pit, in virtually every aspect, except for his Forward B, and his Final Smash, which is just cloned from Zelda.
>>
>>265353252

He's fast, weak and dies like a bitch.
>>
>>265354735
Pichu has also had 13 years for his differences to be observed and meta game to be developed. We know everything Pichu can do that Pikachu can't and vice versa, even if they have the same moveset. If you really think Dark Pit and Pit will play more similar than Pikachu and Pichu, then you're flat out wrong. They'll play about as differently as any Melee Clone and the character they have their moveset based off.
>>
>>265355270
Very minimal differences.

Dude, there's a ton of great developers out there that have expressed interest in doing Smash, publicly. Sure, most of them aren't part of Nintendo's stable of developers or anything, but I'm willing to bet if they all got together, or at least a handful of them, they could make a solid Smash game.

I'm fine with Sakurai coming back, but only if they keep the dude on a short leash. I figured with prominent Tales and Soul Calibur devs working on Smash 4 that Sakurai would've been kept on a short leash, but it's clear that Sakurai had the reins of that operation firmly in grasp from day one.

Pichu's differences were immediately evident to anyone that played both characters, or played against both characters. It's really not that hard to glance and Pichu and tell that he's smaller than Pikachu, or that he rolls farther, or that he hurts himself when he attacks.

Even at a glance Dark Pit is Pit, save for two moves.

It's easier to tell when you've played an entire game where you look at those character's full portraits, and not a bunch of tiny ones zoomed in to the point that you can't see the entire face.

Where does it say "separate and unique characters"?

Again, most kid probably didn't even know meteor smash mechanics until they got good at the game when they were teens. I doubt you knew about "mechanical differences" as a kid, nor knew all of the differences by heart. Most kids just unlocked Doc, selected him and were like "Oh, it's Doctor Mario! All his moves look the same, but he's a doctor, that's cool as shit!". Most people weren't obsessive about and had other games to play, with Smash being the big multiplayer game that was great with friends and a little boring alone after you unlocked everything.

Not to me. Literally an alternate costume that takes up a character slot. What on earth were they thinking?

I was 14 when melee came out, and I did say

>Unless you're talking about people under 10, I can forgive them for that

I would wager though, that even before I was 14, I would have noticed:

Mario: Hits people DOWN with his in air side A attack
Doc: Hits people DIAGONAL wiith his in-air side A attack

You might not know what the name of the shit is but you have to be a literal drooling retard to not notice the difference between down and up
>>

I take it back.

even a drooling retard can notice the difference between down and up

>>265358072
>being able to notice that a character has a different speed or jump height is autistic

Why do basic videogame mechanics suddenly become things that only autists care about when Smash is involved? What you're doing is like calling people autistic for being able to tell the difference between Mario and Luigi in SMB2. Not to mention that Doc's differences are spelled out ingame.

It doesn't say it. It implies it by putting her right smack in the middle of all the other separate and unique characters.

Notice that there aren't any other clones on the currently announced roster, besides Monado Marth and Magic Marth, also in the picture, but we're not counting those two.
>>
>>265359232
Yeah really.

next thing you know they're gonna call us autists for noticing the difference between Roy and Marth

Roy was my mainI loved beating would-be tourneyfags maining marth with him at my college. I've no idea how good I'd do at a real tourney but it's a great feeling putting copycats in their place

You keep using that word "drooling retard", you're an easily upset autist. Most people who played Melee still don't know to this day the differences between Doc and Mario. Even people who played as them. Because they aren't obsessive and were too busy playing the game. IT GOES DOWN NOT DIAGONAL ITS A HUGE FUCKING DIFFERENCE YOU'RE AN AUTIST FOR NOT NOTICING, that's what you sound like. You people will defend Doctor Mario to the death but autistically hate Dark Pit despite them being the same general concept: like the original but a slightly different variation. Of all the clones, most people could spot the differences on every clone but Doc. It's like you never had friends who had hobbies other than gaming, but played with you for fun.

I just played it a bit on Vita since it was free - pretty god damn impressed, had no expectations.

Graphically amazing for the Vita, stages are beautiful, characters are nice, animations and everything is silky smooth.

Not really keen on the special move shit though - it's different but not in a good way.

How would you NOT get pissed off about monthly pay being raised ten cents? That's basically an insult. I would rather it not get raised.

I'm pretty sure even the most casual player can understand the concept of a character variation that has all the same moves but different effects. Plus anybody that beat Adventure or AllStar with Dr. Mario would have it spelt out for them.

And people don't like Dark Pit because he's the laziest clone yet. He's literally one of Pit's Brawl recolors turned into a character.
>>
>>265359961

I really don't get the scorn for being able to understand basic game mechanics that Smash fans have. If they were Mario fans, they'd be getting pissed at anybody that can run and jump at the same time.

I'm not happy about Miis either. Could've been a real slot.

I'm also not happy about Duck Hunt Dog.

bro ur mad.

>You keep using that word "drooling retard"
I took it back, because even a drooling retard can see the difference between up and down. and you know its true, you're just mad because I'm calling you out on your advanced retardation

>Most people who played Melee still don't know to this day the differences between Doc and Mario
I think its just you man.

>Because they aren't obsessive and were too busy playing the game
Bro, I mained Roy. I'm as far from an obsessive tourneyfag as someone can possibly be

>You people will defend Doctor Mario to the death but autistically hate Dark Pit despite them being the same general concept: like the original but a slightly different variation.
At what point did I say I was defending doctor mario? all I did was point out the difference.

I don't care about doctor mario, or dark pit, or anyone, at this point. I lost my main years ago.

>It's like you never had friends who had hobbies other than gaming, but played with you for fun.
but anon, even some random casual will notice the difference between up and down

face it, you're wrong. just let the butthurt flow through you and get over it

Luigi is literally a Mario recolored turned into a new character at his debut. Doctor Mario is literally Mario dressed as a Doctor. Your point is completely moot. Dark Pit is the same as any clone in Melee, he's a tier 3 clone. Tier one being Luigi, tier 2 being Ganondorf, tier 3 being Dark Pit and most Melee clones.
>>
>>265359812
It's a joke, you dense mother fucker.

>>265360096
He's roughly about 62% more unique than Lucina.
>>
>>265359417
Isn't she marked as a newcomer on the mobile version of the site?
>>
>>265360183

He says that being mad about Pit being in is like being mad that your monthly pay is raised by only ten cents, implying that being upset about your monthly pay being raised ten cents is a bad thing, insinuating essentially that we're being trivial and entitled. I was reacting against that idea. Pretty sure you're the one that can't read, bro.
>>
>>265360453
I never said I didn't notice it, I'm saying normal people don't notice. Meleefags and people who played the game excessively did. Roy and the other clones were easier to spot the differences. I'm calling you out on acting like everybody who played Melee knows this shit, you don't understand that 90 percent of the people who played the game didn't know and wouldn't care if you told them the differences.
>>
>>265360562

You forgot to carry the 6, Captain Falcon is actually around 68% more unique than Lucina.
>>
>>265360479
Luigi is noticeably taller and thinner than Mario, Dr. Mario has a different outfit. Dark Pit is literally Pit but black.

Yes. He was hated a few decades ago. Continued inclusion of this character still makes fighting game enthusiasts cringe or just get pissed
>>
>>265360858
Oh, as in, 90% of the people who played smash never even played both doctor mario and regular mario anyway, because they were random dudebros?

I can accept that.

Because everyone who played both would have noticed the differences
>>
>>265359860

I heard about the special move bullshit from a friend who was pumped about it and liked the game and it immediately turned me off. What a bullshit mechanic.
>>
>>265360858
Roy is literally the same as Dr. Mario though. They both share the same attack animations as their original, but some attacks have different properties (fiery neutral B, pills for neutral B and shocking F-Smash), and they have different general abilites (Roy has a different sweetspot and is slower, Dr. Mario is slower but stronger).

Dark Pit is proof that Sakurai don't know what the fans want. I bet he's a sonyfag in disguise, I mean he bough a PS4 AND a Vita tv after all.

Got you now, faggot! Most people like Roy and want him back because they saw him as manlier, cooler looking Marth with FIRE. If they gave a fuck about the mechanical differences, they'd main Marth, who is superior in every respect. Normalfags don't know where the sweetspots are, but could plainly see that he's shorter, a bit slower, and has fire. But they wouldn't see Marth's clear superiority as we do.
>>
>>265361596
They do it all the time though. So much that they made fun of it with Dark Monita, who's just Monita with a jester hat and a fist.
>>
>>265361949
Just FYI that wasn't me

And for the record, those are infact the reasons I mained Roy

that fully charged neutral B was too badass to ignore
>>
>>265361949
Ironically, he's the worst lord in the series and has to be babied for a majority of the game. He's also similar to Marth personality-wise, but his main weapon only appears at the end of the game and lasts 20 hits.
