I'm not the only one who finds that tiering weird, right? It seems like 32/64/128 would be the more logical choice, but I guess for some reason they feel the need to keep 16 alive. »
Speaking of the shared universes, am I the only one who likes X-Men as an entity separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Sure, it'd be cool to see Wolverine running around with the Avengers, and having two sets of Maximoffs in movies at the same time is weird, but the primary conceit of X-Men (that mutants are… »
I think this is one of those games where people's expectations are really going to color how they feel about it. Those of us who have been following this game leading up to release (which is going to be nearly all Kotaku readers, because that's the sort of person who reads Kotaku) know to expect a game that is mostly… »
I wish the DC animated team would talk with the rest of the company. DC puts out great animation time and time again, and it's so weird that they can't translate that magic to other mediums. »
Mewtwo and Pichu were also MIA for Brawl. Also, the fact that Koopaling Roy is in this game has made for some glorious troll-moments on message boards. »
You know what argument really annoys me? The "clones are a waste of a slot" argument. Based on frequent Internet arguments, people seem to be under the impression that the number of characters in Smash Bros. is hard-coded into the game prior to launch (in fact, it would have to be one of the first parts of the game… »
Yes, and rain would make it weaker still. But the thing with weather is that you want to use it to support your team- Scizor becomes almost invincible if Fire-type moves are off the table. »
So, it looks like for returning characters, we have the following changes:
-Peach's peaches are larger.
-DK got a timing bar.
-Samus no longer transforms.
-Ness can manipulate the angle of PK Starstorm, which also covers a more concentrated area.
-Luigi, ZSS, Pit, Kirby, Dedede, Charizard, Lucario, and ROB got completely… »
A good rule of thumb is to look at the word "New". Capital N = new hardware with C-stick. Lowercase n = old hardware with a new design.
This obviously doesn't work in headlines, at the beginning of sentences, or in comments from people who don't use capital letters. But it's a start. »
I wonder how much of this is protecting Peach's modesty vs not having as high-detailed models on the 3DS. It's a given that the WiiU version will have higher resolution character models, but whether or not that also means extra detail is anyone's guess. »
That sounds more likely to me. Not allowing character-generated items would affect more characters than Peach, but those are probably marked as "Link's Bomb", "ROB's Gyro-top", etc. The generic items that might pop up with turnips, on the other hand, seem likely to trigger this sort of thing. »
Do any of the physical stores have display models yet? I'd like to go into one and hold them in my hands before I decide on the 6 or 6 Plus. »
Do remakes factor into this? If so, does something like Final Fantasy Origins on PS1 count as one game or two (since it was sold as a single title but contained the first two games)? »
I'm thinking fried pickles are playing into Oklahoma's pickle-fancy there. Which, to be fair, are delicious. »
