You better not be pulling my leg here, OP, or heads will roll. Fucking sauce or no deal.
You have to at least admit that he's pretty connected to Nintendo. He created two of Nintendo's more popular IPs, was responsible for another franchise becoming popular in the west, and revived an old IP with a brand new title that is currently the best game on 3DS.
>"It's on the 21st? OF WHAT MONTH! That information is useless to me because there are multiple 21sts coming up over the course of several months."
>"It's in August. Ok, we've narrowed it down to a period of about 30 days. Now which day is it?"
Yeah, but with month first you already know around what part of the year it's going to be. If you hear the day first it could be in a few days or 12 months from now.
Month first factors out more time before or after it more quickly.
That would follow my logic, but since every year is unique and doesn't repeat (there aren't a group of named years that cycle) that information kind of has a different value.
Really it's just more convenient to have it at the end so that when dealing with day-to-day or month-to-month business you don't have to read through "2014" before every date you read.
Might be more useful to put the year first when dealing with large spans of history. Like I'd sooner want to know what year some event happened in history than what day it happened.
But, when someone says "this is coming up in august!" it's implied that they mean the current year.
oh bitch you scared me i thought i was going to have to eat my words
If Anyone is going to be announced in Smash its that faggy guy from Skyward Sword
This motherfucker, This is how his announcements have been working so far. And hes the only real notable character from Skyward Sword with the Fi Trophy
Honestly while I think Groose would be a nice addition since he went from douche to bro, and Ghirahim would be fun cause of how flamboyant he is, the only one I think deserves it is Impa. She's been around the longest and is actually important to the franchise more.
Lu Bu and this motherfucker for Hyrule. That's my pie-in-the-sky-never-going-to-happen dream. At least the latter definitely won't happen. Lu Bu might, though.
Even if she looks like she did in Awakening, it's not like Awakening was the only game she was in. She's been in 5 Fire Emblem games. She's kind of one of the most important characters in the games that take place in the continent from Marth's games and Awakening.
But the Trophy of Tiki was her aged one, from Awakening
This could be possible. They could even show off Impa as an alt costume for Sheik. No clone, just different voice clips, different look, different announcer name, but plays the exact same.
>it used her appearance from Awakening
>therefore the only reason she's a trophy is because of Awakening
>it has nothing to do with the fact that she's also a major character in Marth's games
>and if there's a Fi trophy, that means there will be a new Zelda character from Skyward Sword in Kerfuffle
>it's definitely got nothing to do with Skyward Sword just happening to be the most recent Zelda game
I'm just pointing out the absurd logical leap being made here that because Tiki and some Awakening characters are in, that must mean they're adding more Zelda characters too.
Well I think the trophy theory is likely but Fi and the music that played could just mean a character or design of a character from Skyward Sword. Fi's most obviously connected to Grihm, but the music wasn't his. So it's hard to say what rep it could be, though the most notable guesses seem to be Groose, Ghirahim, and Impa. It's not as clear cut as the Metroid trophy, with a creature that was provoked by a certain something who then proceeded to eat it after Samus killed King Kihunter. I figure clone/atl Impa for Sheik and Groose or Ghirahim seem possible though.
If Ridley is playable and being revealed this month I do not expect them to show it during a Hyrule Warriors direct. It'd completely blow the directs main purpose to shit. It might as well be called RIDLEY: And some Zelda.
Though granted I'd kind of like that since Metroid has been shafted year after year on its anniversary while Zelda keeps getting felated. Yes that pisses me off quite a bit.
>Ridley is a playable character in Hyrule Warriors also
No shit, because it's the most recent game. I'm not trying to argue that. I'm trying to argue that saying a Fi trophy means they'll do a repeat of the Fire Emblem thing and add more Zelda characters solely because they also got a trophy from the most recent title is a bit silly.
I actually didn't expect anything at Comicon. They said surprises for the treehouse and tourney which just ended up being some no name celebs playing with Zelda Williams, and Scarflard and HungryBox playing some Smash the days after during the live stream. Their idea of a surprise is waving a squeaky toy in front of people like a pet.
any europe fags here staying up untill 4 in the morning to watch this?
I honestly think that's a possibility.
Not going to set myself up though. I will stay in this slumpy, pissy, unhappy mood until Sakurai shows the bastard. That way I'll either already be in that mood and it won't last long, or I'll be able to do a 180 and scream like a little happy bitch.
I want to scream like a happy bitch, Sakurai. You know like that shit.
>people thinking their one off characters have a chace of being in Smash
>people think their one off VILLAINS have a chace of being in Smash
If there is going to be a Zelda character reveal for Smash, It'll be Impa.
Vidya Shorts is a weird guy.
He did a "speedrun"? I guess? Of TP that he calls the Hobbling Hobo run, where he has to complete the whole game with Iron Boots on. He's got a video of him struggling to do a timed torch puzzle in Hyrule castle.
FOR. TEN. HOURS.
Nobody wants villains just for villains. It's because the villains, the main reoccurring ones, are important to the franchises. They're why the hero is doing what they do. They're rarely if ever playable in anything. In Smash it's possible to play as them so people want the heroes nemesis playable. You say there's no villain quota, how about no "new rep quota"? Who says you need a new rep from a franchise that's not there yet? It's as silly an argument as the villain quota.
She makes more fucking sense than Ghirahim, or even Demise. She's an actual reoccuring Zelda character, and will most likely be in more Zelda games to come. She could easily be a reoccuring Zelda rep for Smash, when little shits such as Groose would not.
I feel like that looping, one-instrument castle theme and incessant clanking with Link going HYUH HYEH HYUH for ten hours could legitimately be used as a form of psychological torture.
I'm OK with that explanation, that they're important to the francises.
The new rep preference stems from more awareness overall. A series that "needs a villian" already has a protagonist, so the visibility is already there.
What annoys me is when less important villian characters are listed. Ghirahim, Kamek, Bowser Jr, Captain Syrup, etc. I can see K Rool getting a pass, because irrelevant as he is now, he was pretty important to DK.
>one off from one of the worst selling Zelda games of all time and most disappointing
Yeah he's in just like midna was in brawl
I swear, Ghirahim faggots are becoming ridleyfags tier
Yeah, in two games where she is more than a nanny for Zelda and all the others she is nothing but an old lady and a lone of text
Besides, she's never been popular and Groose and Ghirahim always have a lot of votes whenever a poll is made, even moreso in japan
While I'm not overly fond of oneshot characters, be them villains or protags being in, I don't see why Kamek would be bad. He is more or less the reoccurring antagonist in Yoshi Island games.
Ones like Ridley and K. Rool though would make a ton of people happy and honestly deserve it. Especially when Metroids second rep was a fucking second Samus. It'd be like DKs second rep being a shaved Donkey Kong instead of Diddy. DK fans wouldn't be too happy with that, would they?
>there are people here who don't give a fuck about Hyrule Warriors and only care about Smash
>the Direct is about Hyrule Warriors
>people will still watch against their better judgement
>they will still bitch when nothing Smash related appears
Hint: If a reveal is to coincide with Hyrule Warriors, it will be at the Japanese release date later this month.
Face it, guys. Ganondorf's gonna be in. Just wait. It'll be over soon.
I don't think anyone was expecting more Mario characters at the Mario Kart Direct.
And the trophies from the Smash Direct hint at a Zelda newcomer. Whether they're revealed tonight or another day is up in the air.
That's the part that's up in the air nigger. What's not up in the air is the fact that there is absolutely no reason to expect anything Smash related out of this.
thats kinda shorter than i expected
He'll be the exception. Or he'll be allegedly converted to the good side as a in-between character.
Just wait. Ganondorf is in. It'll be over soon.
I dunno, 3/4 seems like a pretty solid argument for validity.
> Goddesses leave Hyrule their sacred power on purpose
> try to claim it to help people reach their rightful place among the cosmos
> continually get thwarted by some goddamn fairy boy that takes advice from things like talking trees
Ganondorf did nothing wrong.
Skyward Sword has been getting way more love. That's how it goes, right?
New Zelda gets released > Critics cum all over it > Fans crap all over it > few years later > Fans cum all ove rit
None can deny The Goose. Just wait. If Nintendo didn't add him, he'll fucking write Himself into the game.
Is the direct only for the western world or is Japan getting one too?
I have a feeling it's going to be some stuff mention in the japanese streams but only official announced in english.
I hope they have Groose as they could introduce in a mad hyped way.
Nah, they're pretty solid mechanically, but that's not difficult considering how simple the games are. It depends on what you expect out of them though. If you want a well-polished, in-depth 3D brawler, look to God Hand. If you want to be a one man army by doing absurd, campy shit, you've found your game.
I just want to mindless fun, anon
that's what I'll get so it'll be good for me
I want to see /v/ rage because the second biggest faggot in Zelda history is in Smash and not their waifu
Nigga stole the words from mah mouth.
Why are you spoonfeeding links and times? Are you that desperate to have something to contribute to this thread? Just let the fuckers scramble around Google for 5 minutes and learn something instead of enabling them to be stupid and lazy.
>Ganon no longer a muscle wizard and now some stupid Ike/Robin clone
Fuck that. I just want a faster Ganon, how else am I supposed to grab niggas? Maybe some mods to his current moveset would be better suited because fuck warlock punch and volcano kick.
>mfw it's almost 5 in the morning
This shit better be worth it.
Post YFW it's all stuff we already know from the niconico streams
>tfw im watching this for the smash reveal that won't happen
it's gonna be worth anyways, r-right?
POST YOUR FINAL PREDICTIONS
>Happy Mask Salesman
>That kid in Windwaker with the snot hanging from his nose
>Character from another Nintendo franchise
>Nothing Smash Bros. related
Why are we getting excited about something that happened three months ago?
>Ganon being a crafty motherfucker who plays both sides, then steals the Macguffin right out from under everyone's noses
I have always dreamed of this. Less Evil Overlord, more King of Thieves.
Guys, I can't watch the Nintendo Direct on Youtube thanks to my computer shitting over Youtube for some reason, lately. I can't watch any videos at all. Is there some sort of Twitch stream or any alternative? I really want to catch this shit live.
>held back by Nintendo
Doesn't look like they're holding it back much to me.
>canon because timespace fuckery
>new characters just sort of thrown in
What exactly are they holding back? Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 1 and 2 are the only musou games with actual violent deaths or anything like that.
As much as I love the guy, there was a reason he didn't receive the Triforce of Wisdom.
STICKY THAT SHIT
Because Groose is 26 inches in length?
>XENOBLADE DEV RETWEETED THE SMASH REVEAL
>ITS GONNA BE SHULK YOU FUCKING ANTI-GEMATSU FAGS
Shut the fuck up
Also if anything, we are getting absolutely nothing this month except for maybe Ganondorf veteran reveal for Hyrule Warriors
holy shit, I just realized that was a year ago
I started watching the direct about 6 months prior to that one, i think the X&Y announcement was the first I saw.
where the fuck does the time go?
Except she's not
I WISH FUCK YOU ANON THIS BETTER BE TRUE
>keeps screaming "SAKURAII"
>actually thinks sakura is a master ruseman bent on trolling everyone
p-people actually thing these things?
I got banned for posting this once.
So what does everyone seriously see getting talked about? Hell it's only going to be 20 minutes long, let alone the fact it's a spin-off... So with this being their first proper direct since E3, what kinda shit do y'all think they're gonna show us? Probably something big, right?
>mfw the inevitable backlash hits like a fucking truck
>everybody starts shitting on Nintendo and the Warriors games
>all because they couldn't be bothered to do a single fucking lick of research in the how many fucking months since it was announced
>can't even discuss the Warriors games on /v/ anymore because of every thread being bumrushed by a bunch of people asspained by buyer's remorse
we might need to start a new thread before it starts
New character for HW, possibly a new stage, maybe some plot elements.
And possibly a Brawl announcement snuck in there at the very end. It's too perfect not to include as a teaser to maximize hype.
Time for Waifu Warriors.
TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT!!!
GANON WILL BE CONFIRMED!!!!
But wearing the same color nail polish as the King of Evil just screams darkness. It's part of the look, and Link's goodness is all about how he overcomes his darkness and other emo shit like that.
