It's basically legal extortion, Nintendo contributes absolutely nothing to any tournament they "partner" with and it forces the TOs to ban PM and 20XX, censor their commentators and shit up Top 8 with crappy ads no one wants to hear for the millionth time.

I live near where that's being located. Someone told me there's also a fucking furry convention at around the same time frame in a separate part of the building.

Without Nintendo, a "Smash scene" wouldn't even exist, because there'd be no Smash Bros.

A better questions is why the fuck is Smash the only serious platform fighter out there?

There's Rivals of Furrys, and a few shitty steam indies, but I cannot believe that with melee and PMs widespread success, no one has bothered to make a game with unique IPs seriously geared towards the competitive community.

I'd do it if I could
>>
>>323238447
because melee and pm are good enough to not bother making other games in the genre
>>
>>323218461
Whats genesis 3? The sega console?
>>
>>323238689

No.

But no one would give the game a chance anyways because it doesn't have everyone's fav nintendo chars.
>>
>>323238689
Except PM has been assraped by Nintendo and Melee's metagame is gradually staling. At some point melee is going to devolve into an even smaller point of viable characters and playstyles and people will lose interest, like every fighting game.

Another game would also make Nintendo sweat, and maybe persuade them into Melee HD or a similar competitive title.

Plus there's no way smash nerds wouldn't buy a game with cute anime girls and melee esque-play.
>>
>>323239067
People have tried and people have failed not because it didn't have the likes of Mario but because they were shitty games. Some Smash tourneys have been giving Aether a shot so that's a start I guess

The only real smash clone we've gotten was Playstation allstars and that was honestly a fun game(but only in doubles).

Probably because it's more difficult to actually have regular streams in Europe since locals are far less frequent and events take place in different countries.

Plup dropped Samus because he thinks she's sick and Hugs says he'll probably have to switch characters one he reaches top 10. The highest placing of a Samus ever was at Evo Worlds in 2007.

Ganon actually won a MLG back in the day, I don't see how he's risen at all. There are two Ganons on the top 100 this year.

There's are a lot of minor things and discretion between how to optimally play peach, but if you compare him and MacD you'll see how differently they handle individual situations.

But, the one thing that constantly sticks out to me is how he's inconsistent as fuck at edge-guarding anything except spacies. He likes uses turnips when they're suboptimal to aerials. It looks cool, but really edgeguarding everyone except marth should be a boring M2K esque flowchart.

He also doesn't fucking chaingrab spacies at every opportunity which really pisses me off.

Isn't that just Gaming Generations? I know Nintendo gave them Wii U setups for APEX2015 but we knew about the Nintendo sponsorship with APEX for a while I think.

G3NESIS is in a week and they only now announced some the sponsorship, so Nintendo probably isn't doing jack for the tournament

It was my impression that they were leaving to make a Smash clone, but that can't possibly be the case now.
