The Clone Wars and Too Many Swords

challengerapproaching:

Hey, all! It’s been a while, but there’s been a couple of issues that have come up with the latest character announcement that have been really bugging me so I wanted to get them off my chest. This is just opinion, so bear with me, but I wanted to just give my two-cents.

The first issue is that people seem to be hating on Lucina for being a Marth clone, and some people are STILL upset about Toon Link because he’s an apparent Link clone.

So first, let’s talk about clones.

There is always time to tip the scales.  

I personally LOVEEEE Fire Emblem: Awakening.  For sure one of the best 3DS games.

There’s no real selection process, honestly, we just try to pick out questions that we think we could have give any real input on. A question isn’t worth answering if we can’t write 2 or 3 paragraphs of answer for it. The ones that usually don’t get touched are the ones that rehash stuff we’ve discussed in the past (Mystical Ninja Goemon still has about as slim of a chance as always guys, promise.) or are too vague. (“What stages do you want?” Uhhhh… all of them?)

We also typically avoid posting much negativity.  Way we see things is that there’s entirely too much of the internet vying to look at the bad stuff, so we strive to keep things cheery and fun at ChallengerApproaching.  Most important thing we try to do is open room for debate and express our excitement for Smash and several other Nintendo games!

"Everyone In Smash Bros (Wii U/ 3DS) Feels Well Balanced"

challengerapproaching:

Ooooh, now this is interesting. Competitive Smash player Venks Dunson has written his extended thoughts on the balance between characters in the Smash 4 demo, and he put a good deal of thought into it!  He seems to have (Very nearly) entirely positive things to say about what’s been done for every character, it’s a great read.

Have a look through it, gang!  Keep in mind that it’s JUST about the characters that were available during the E3 demo.

We noticed that too.  Interesting, eh?  The first image was Friday’s Pic of the day, while the second is one of Mac’s profile images on the main Smash site.  The pose is probably just a different frame of animation but the bandage on his cheek is something we don’t BELIEVE we’ve seen until now!  We could be wrong about that but it doesn’t seem to be the case.  The ‘bruise’ in question could be just that or it could be a face-squished-against-the-screen effect like Mario has going on, it’s a little hard to tell.

This raises the question of whether or not Little Mac might be the very first Smash character to show Battle Damage.  As ATP says, a couple of interesting textures were found in the coding of Brawl that suggests the team were originally going to have wear and tear show on several characters’ models.  They’d never go so far as to have BLOOD, of course, but it sure would be interesting to see this idea make a comeback!

Other Characters as Alt Costumes?!?!

challengerapproaching:

As stated in that recent article in which Sakurai detailed his choices of Robin and Lucina, Lucina was originally planned to be an alt costume of Marth! This opens up the possibility of other distinct characters to be alt costumes, or even moveset clones like Lucina! Let’s discuss some top options for them, eh?
